Brighton will remain pleasantly in the memory of those who attended the Library Association Conference there. The meeting was well‐organized from the business and social points of view; and a generous hospitality extended by those in authority there gave a real delight to every day, indeed every hour, spent in the sea‐side city. The beautiful weather that prevailed added much to the event. On the purely technical side the conference compared favourably with any of recent years. The remarkable advance in the roll of members ; the progress of the net books question ; a new and keen interest shown in co‐operation, the immediate first‐fruit of which is to be union catalogue of London's municipal reference libraries ; the interest of the exhibitions, that of the Library Association being a promise of real excellence in the future; and the trade exhibition being one or the best we have examined—these were memorable features of a memorable conference. Our gratitude may perhaps be added to that expressed more officially at Brighton to all who had the arrangement of a most successful affair.
