In Which Science Fiction Short Story Did the Word Liebury Occur?

What is the full title and who the author of the science fiction short

story from the 1950's or early '60s that used the word "liebury"

(perhaps in the title), an alien misreconstruction of "library"

thought to refer to the ocean spanning building that housed our solar

systems knowledge collection before it was moved to the asteroid belt.

The story is presented as a field report from an investigative

archeological team. The civilization collapsed when all real

knowledge, Rx, was misreferenced amidst the still exponentially

growing indices, Ix, bibliographies, Bx, and IxBx, BxIx. that refer to

it, resulting in circular references to references. Introduced

concepts of nudged and notched photon as storage mechanisms.
