Throughout the history of the world, libraries have been constructed, burned, discovered, raided, and cherished—and the treasures they’ve housed have evolved from early stone tablets to the mass-produced, bound paper books of our present day. The Library invites you to enter the establishments of ancient Greece, early China, Renaissance England, and modern-day America. It speaks to the bibliophile in all of us by documenting the changing form and function of the book from era to era, whether clay tablets, parchment sheets, papyrus scrolls, glossy paper, recording tape, or silicone chips. Incorporating beautiful illustrations, insightful quotations, and many marvelous mysteries of libraries—their collections, patrons, and keepers—this book is certain to provide you with a wealth of knowledge and enjoyment.
“An eloquent account of the noble history of libraries, as it has unfolded from the earliest times to the present.” —Nicholas A. Basbanes, author of A Gentle Madness
“This handsome edition would make an excellent gift for any booklover . . . reading about the transformative history of libraries and information delivery has never been more important―or more enjoyable.” —The Association of College and Research Libraries Washington Newsletter
by Gurcharan Das
Das shows how India’s policies after 1947 condemned the nation to a hobbled economy until 1991, when the government instituted sweeping reforms that paved the way for extraordinary growth. Das traces these developments and tells the stories of the major players from Nehru through today. As the former CEO of Proctor & Gamble India, Das offers a unique insider’s perspective and he deftly interweaves memoir with history, creating a book that is at once vigorously analytical and vividly written. Impassioned, erudite, and eminently readable, India Unbound is a must for anyone interested in the global economy and its future.

International Dictionary of Library Histories
by David H. Stam
The dictionary profiles more than 200 institutions from around the world, including the world’s most important research libraries and other libraries with globally or regionally notable collections, innovative traditions, and significant and interesting histories. The essays take advantage of the growing scholarship of library history to provide insightful overviews of each institution, including not only the traditional values of these libraries but their innovations as well, such as developments in automated systems and electronic delivery.
The profiles will emphasize the unique materials of research in these institutions – archives, manuscripts, personal and institutional papers. The introductory articles on types of libraries include topics ranging from theological libraries to prison libraries, from the ancient to the digital.
An international team of more than 200 leading scholars in the field have contributed essays to the project.
In the past decade, technology and the digital age has continued to shape our society. As corporations and universities continue to transition into the digital world, developments of the same type of information retrieval have modernized library resources and services.

This reference source brings together research and ideas on the different facets of a digital library.
