English abstract

The paper discusses a model explaining the appearance and character of phenomena taking place in research libraries after World War II. Two dominating phenomena are discussed - integration of library networks and computerization. The described model is based on the assumption that the evolution of libraries (occurence of the said phenomena) is caused by the loss of equilibrium in the system and the effort to recover it. The factors which have led to unequilibrium in libraries and how it occured is briefly discussed.
