New Chapter 2

The new version of Chapter 2 has been posted here.

In this chapter I outline the development of a scholarly field that came to be referred to as international and comparative librarianship, with reference to the themes, genres, motives, and values reflected in the literature. I then outline the structure and current state of the scholarly research and literature in the two areas within the field, and attempt to define and delimit the scope of these interrelated areas. I conclude with some reflections on the possible impact on them of globalization.
