Trying to answer any or all of these questions in the days before you had a smartphone could require hours, if not days, if it even was possible. That’s what we mean when we say that Ranganathan’s Fourth Law, “Save the time of the reader,” (The Five Laws of Library Science) now should be considered the first law in how libraries approach user service.
