"...this institution... will, as its component parts, such as... the Archives [and] the Library... are brought together and made jointly to operate in one spot, be increasingly regarded as the focus of all Bahá'í administrative activity, and symbolize, in a befitting manner, the ideal of service animating the Bahá'í community in its relation alike to the Faith and to mankind in general."  (Shoghi Effendi, God Passes By, p. 339)
