The word Library comes from the Greek words biblion (books) and teka (deposit or box). and public consultation especially students, researchers and lovers of reading.
The fundamental tasks that justify the existence of a library are to form the collection, organize it and put it into service. The library’s objective is to provide its users with both access to the document and the access and location of information.
In libraries it is possible to find books from any area of knowledge, made available to the public for consultation or borrowing. Users have large rooms, equipped with tables and chairs, and with the help of librarians (library staff).
Large libraries also have special departments such as the newspaper library (where periodicals are kept and borrowed), as well as rooms or offices where the public can have access to photographs, videos, music discs, computer discs, CDs., etc. Today, libraries offer information about their collections over the Internet.
All libraries provide us with resources to research a job or study, solve problems, satisfy information needs, and enjoy reading. They can be split depending on what funds they have and who they are targeted at, they can be national, public, university, school, face-to-face and mobile.
The library is a space for study and consultation, in which we must be silent or speak in a low voice so as not to interfere with the work of others. Likewise, its books, services and facilities are useful to everyone, so we must care for and preserve them.
Libraries have a file, where they sort by subject and store in alphabetical order (by author or by title) the catalog cards of all their books. Currently, this file information is on the computers of these institutions to better facilitate the data.
The catalog card contains the author’s name, title, and other book data, as well as the height or code that the library assigns to the book to facilitate its location.
