HOW MANY TRAINING OFFICERS CAN REALLY CLAIM TO KEEP abreast of all the information about audio‐visuals that comes their way — still less to see the latest aids? We all share the frustration of running against the tide of information. The catalogues and brochures that land on our desks all too often finish on our shelves unread. It is partly because every day is too short, partly because we all react to a multitude of pressures and some jobs simply have to be left undone. And part of the trouble lies with the nature of the information itself. Take film catalogues for example. The variations in size and layout are not only bewildering but make storage difficult. Infuriatingly many of those upon which the greatest effort has been lavished and most money spent are the least easy to consult. The stylist seems to take precedence over the practical cataloguer so that what superficially appears the most visually attractive often turns out to be difficult to consult and even, on occasions, hard to read.
