Abstract

National Library and Archives of the Islamic Republic of Iran A Dynamic library publisher model

With the invention of script, human beings tried to codify and register their knowledge and experiences. The need for transfer and dissemination of this knowledge caused the publishing industry. Undoubtedly, the publishing industry is the most important culture-related industry in any country, because its growth or recession affect all creative and research activities. Due to the openness of cultural space and accessibility to new technologies, the publishing industry in IRAN has undergone extensive changes and also has facilitated the development of information resources production. National libraries in any country are doing their roles and tasks as the mother library. Tasks and activities of national libraries involve a wide range, from acquisition, organizing, dissemination, education and research to publication of specialized and professional resources and standard texts. This paper aims to explore the role of National Library and Archives of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the publishing field and to study the objectives and dimensions of its activities in order to introduce this organization as a dynamic model of a publisher library.
