The Library World Volume 1 Issue 6 Since our visit to England last year with the American Librarians, we have often mentally discussed the reason why so many of the libraries of the United States are in the hands of women, and so few in Great Britain. Tradition and habit are of course responsible to a great degree in the latter case. The majority of the libraries in Great Britain are not a new growth they have always been in the hands of men, therefore they always must be. They have been built up slowly as conservators of the literature of the ages, and it is fitting that wise and learned men should have them in charge. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png New Library World Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Since our visit to England last year with the American Librarians, we have often mentally discussed the reason why so many of the libraries of the United States are in the hands of women, and so few in Great Britain. Tradition and habit are of course responsible to a great degree in the latter case. The majority of the libraries in Great Britain are not a new growth they have always been in the hands of men, therefore they always must be. They have been built up slowly as conservators of the literature of the ages, and it is fitting that wise and learned men should have them in charge.
