Open Shelves/Closed Shelves in Research Libraries
Rovelstad, Mathilde V.
College and Research Libraries, 37, 5, 457-67, Sep 76
Traces the traditional method of making books accessible through their topical arrangement on library shelves, outlines the reasons for the abandonment of this method in European research libraries, explores its modified reappearance in postwar academic libraries, and cites modern arguments against the practice of making an entire research collection available on open shelves.
