Abstract: <正> It has been said that "books are a ladder for human progress." Books, in whatever forms, are the embodiments of human cultures; therefore, a country's library development reflects its history and civilization. The history of libraries worldwide dates back to 3000 B.C., when facilities housing books made from mud-plate printing appeared in the Middle East. Records show that Chinese also began collecting books 3,000 years ago. During the Zhou Dynasty (about the 11th century B.C.), the process of book collection was overseen by designated officials.
