This book discusses the development of library and information services in China and the effect of the nation's political and social conditions on that develpment. The author briefly reviews the history of Chinese libraries and librarianship, then describes Chinese library services in the first half of the 20th century. The remarkable consequences of the ideological change after the Communist takeover are described in a concise manner, but the focus of this book is the massive modernization movement that has taken place since 1978.

This unique book has been prepared based on data collected directly from Chinese professional journals. In addition, it provides unusual detailed information from sources obtained during the author's extensive official visits to libraries and library schools in China. For the first time, these details are now easily accessible in one comprehensive volume.

About the Author:

Sharon Chien Lin is Librarian at the State University at Buffalo, New York. She is the author of numerous professional articles in the field of library and information science.

Review:

"The author focuses on the current status of Chinese libraries and librarianship. The topics covered include legislation; administration and organization; national, public, academic and special research libraries; bibliographic control and services; library and information science education; and library and information automation. The book is comprehensive and systematic. It is based on data that the author has painstakingly collected for years."-The Journal of Academic Librarianship

"[A] comprehensive treatment of the administration and organization of all types of libraries, especially in the People's republic since 1949."-C&RL News

"The only work in the English language on this subject, this book will be useful to those who are interested in Chinese and comparative librarianship."-Library and Information Science Annual

"In this courageous attempt to bring an understanding of Chinese libraries to the Western world, Lin explores the lesser-known boundaries between the Eastern and Western cultures....this is an important step and sets a standard for later explorers to follow."-The Library Quarterly

"Lin does what she says she will do, namely, discuss "the development and current status of Chinese libraries." In fact, she goes somewhat beyond this and writes of the scientific and technical information centres which have, in China, traditionally been seen to be quite distinct from libraries."-Feliciter

..."[I]t is the only work in English which comprehensively describes Chinese libraries and librarianship....It is quite evident that _Libraries And Librarianship in China_ has filled in the gap in this field and set up a gateway for English-speaking readers to understand Chinese libraries and librarianship."-H-NET BOOK REVIEW

"Until recently, little was known about Chinese libraries and librarianship. Lin...should be complimented for writing this concise but excellent book on the subject....This is a very good addition to the library literature and is highly recommended for all professional collections, library schools, and scholars of comparative librarianship."-Library Journal
