Meeting Agenda
Rather than attempting to paint – so to speak − any sort of overall picture / providing any
sort of detailed account, we aim instead to investigate elements and aspects that are in a
sense at the heart of Ranganathan’s work and still remain little known. Our objective is
therefore to explore the soil in which the roots of his work were growing, [by] investigating
what influence educational background, cultural ties and social context may have had on
Ranganathan’s activities as a librarian and scholar. In so doing, we want to espouse a
broad / more inclusive understanding by examining his legacy within the larger frame of
Digital Humanities. What follows provides a roadmap to/of major topics that will be
explored in this meeting. From this it clearly follows that our overall objective is to set the
stage for further research.
