The Library of Doctor John Dee as it Relates to Libraries in the English and European Renaissances by David Francis Smith. Submitted to the faculty of the School of Information and Library Science of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Library Science Chapel Hill, North Carolina May 1999.

John Dee, an English scholar in the sixteenth century, was influenced by both the Continental rebirth of scholarship and the need for native repositories of knowledge and centers of scholarship in England when he created his large private library in the 1570s. The history and contents of the library indicate that the Italian Renaissance, as it spread outward from the continent, met England at a time when that country was in need of native repositories of knowledge and centers of scholarly exchange. Scholars such as Dee took the new developments of the continental Renaissance and implemented them in their own country to promote its individual advancement.
