Abstract

Pakistan's parliamentary libraries reflect the challenges that the democratic institutions they serve have faced since independence in 1948. This article provides a historical context to the development of the bicameral parliament in Pakistan and four provincial assemblies. It describes the founding and development of parliamentary library and research services in that context and presents some of the newest innovations and reforms that the institutions have initiated in recent years.
