戦後公共図書館史における三多摩郷土資料研究会の位置づけ A study on the role of Santama Kyodoshiryo Kenkyukai in the postwar history of public libraries in Japan
This paper aims at reconsidering the postwar history of public libraries in Japan from the standpoint of ' local collection '(kyodoshiryo). It examines (1) the general development of the 'local collection' activities at public libraries from the 1950s to the 1960s, and (2) the specific activities of Santama Working Group for Local Collections (Santama Kyodoshiryo Kenkyukai) from 1975 to 1999./ As a result of this study, it became clear that Mr. Ichiro Aoki (1913-2004) who had been the director of Niitsu City Library (Niigata Pref.) from 1951-71, by instructing the local librarians in Santama area (Tokyo) how to handle the local collection, played an influential role in forming the Santama Working Group for Local Collections that started a new era in the ' local collection ' activities at public libraries in the 1970s.
