Radical consideration of the situation and regulation of librarianship is necessary,especially in the light of challenges posed by information society. A comparative survey of library legislation shows that certain degree of caution is required, and the extent of risk depends upon the ability for a realistic comprehension of the conditions of the development of librarianship. Connectedness with national and global information strategy is of utmost importance, and merits at least as much attention as legislation.
