学術研究とプロフェッショナル・レファレンス・ライブラリアンAcademic study and the professional reference librarian

発行日:1977年3月15日Published: March 15, 1977

In the pre-industrial society, the science or academic study was based on the “dilettantis”, and the scientists studied with their own motives and goals. But in our modern society, the academic research has been institutionalized in all aspects, and simultaneously, the scientists or the academic researchers have become a profession. They must have a certain social role and they must perform their research according to the certain goal of their clients.
