EVEN for those who are unable to attend it, there is great interest in the Annual Meeting of the Library Association and, in some ways, the coming one in May at Scarborough has many features to justify it. It will follow the pattern that is now familiar and which, in a measure, is imposed upon an Association with so many sectional interests. Ours is a day of numbers and in a great congregation the difficult task of the programme‐builder is to find ways of catering both for the whole and for the individual groups. Those who attend ought to be selective; to appear at every meeting may be the duty of a reporter, even of the Editor of a journal such as this, but that is merely because a general record is necessary for their purposes. Members at large cannot, we suggest, do justice to more than two papers a day and find opportunity for those personal conversations which, after all, give practical value to these gatherings.
