∞ Hospitality

Indian mathematician and librarian S.R. Ranganathan (1892–1972) mixed practical prescription and broad gesture in equal measure for his Five Laws of Library Science.

1. BOOKS ARE FOR USE.
2. EVERY READER HIS [OR HER] BOOK.
3. EVERY BOOK ITS READER.
4. SAVE THE TIME OF THE USER.
5. THE LIBRARY IS A GROWING ORGANISM.

Produced with Dexter Sinister for Art Libraries Society of New York conference on contemporary artists’ books, 23–26 October 2008.
