S. R. Ranganathan's Five Laws of Library Science

Just a short (Wikipedia, I know) article about the 'Five Laws of Library Science' by S.R. Ranganathan. There are as follows:

  1. Books are for use.
  2. Every reader his [or her] book.
  3. Every book its reader.
  4. Save the time of the reader.
  5. The library is a growing organism.
