Abstract:The concept of the library has broadened a great deal over the past several years. Since the time of cuneiform tablets in Sumerian civilization, libraries have been concerned with storing and accessing recorded knowledge. For hundreds even thousands of years, this recorded knowledge has been in book, manuscript, and picture form, and only within the past ten years have libraries and librarians become increasingly aware of other media as a source of recorded knowledge. More and more progressive schools have integrated these media into a new and bigger creature called the "learning resource center" which has combined the more traditional library functions and services with vehicles less traditional than the printed word.
