Biography Born in the Russian Empire as Shmaryahu Lubetzky, he worked for years at the Library of Congress. He worked as a teacher before he immigrated to the United States in 1927. He earned his BA from UCLA in 1931, and his MA from UC Berkeley in 1932. Lubetzky also taught at the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, then the School of Library Service.

Paris Principles (cataloging)
The Paris Principles (PP) also known as the Statement of Principles defined the theoretical foundation for the creation of bibliographical cataloging rules for libraries. They were specified and agreed upon in October 1961 at the ''Conference on Cataloguing Principles'' (CCP) of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) in Paris. The six-page script stipulated which function and structure library catalogs should have in the future. It was the first international agreement - delegations from 65 countries were involved - on fundamental questions of cataloging, which formed an important basis for the development of regulations such as the German (RAK). For example, determining the function of a library catalog is influential up to now. By using the catalog, the user should be able to determine whether a respective library holds a certain book of which is known: * the author and the title, or * only the title (if the author is not mentioned in the ...

Librarians At The Library Of Congress
A librarian is a person who works professionally in a library, providing access to information, and sometimes social or technical programming, or instruction on information literacy to users. The role of the librarian has changed much over time, with the past century in particular bringing many new media and technologies into play. From the earliest libraries in the ancient world to the modern information hub, there have been keepers and disseminators of the information held in data stores. Roles and responsibilities vary widely depending on the type of library, the specialty of the librarian, and the functions needed to maintain collections and make them available to its users. Education for librarianship has changed over time to reflect changing roles. History The ancient world The Sumerians were the first to train clerks to keep records of accounts. "Masters of the books" or "keepers of the tablets" were scribes or priests who were trained to handle the vast amount and comp ...
