Abstract : This thesis presents a conceptual view of a reusable Software Library. Issues concerning the software crisis and its subsequent impact on software development are reviewed. The traditional library is described for the purpose of comparison with the Software Library. A particular example of the Software Library, the Program Library, is described as a prototype of a reusable library. A hierarchical structure for a Program Library is discussed as an approach to making the library entities easily accessible and retrievable. The role of application generators in the Program Library is described. The special features of Ada that support programming libraries are described. Finally, noncode products in the Software Library are discussed.
