Conclusions

No guidelines can be comprehensive in their coverage and particularly in the applications that can be forseen for them. The author hopes that the approach has not been too prescriptive but that there are enough guides and examples to be of use in assisting library associations to be better managed and as a consequence more effective. By being so it is hoped the image and reputation of the profession will be improved and in achieving that aim that a step will have been taken towards the improvement of the status and reputation of the library, information science and archive professions.
