Theoretical Issues Relating to the Study of Library Movement

Library movement, as a term doesn't find a place in many reference books. For example, check the following:

Dr. S R Ranganathan, the father of library movement in India, mentions what makes a movement, in his review of developments during the 1930's and 1940s. While this gives a clue and sense that there is a term used in the library literature, but it leaves a gap in understanding what it means. (see: Ranganathan, S. R. (1941), Libraries and Library Movement)

Note: A similar problem bothers in finding a meaning of the term Library Development, see the article: Theoretical Issues and Constructs Underlying the Study of Library Development, WILLIAMS, ROBERT V.
