Louis Shores

Librarian (1904 - 1981).  Born in Buffalo.   Shores was the earliest and most influential proponent of the use of "bibliographic instruction" in universities.  In 1935 Louis Shores discussed and promoted the library-college. He believed that the library should be the center of instruction for the entire academic community. According to Shores the library was and should be recognized as an integral part of the educational process.

Shores additionally founded the Journal of Library History (now Libraries & Culture) in 1966 while at Florida State University.
