IT has been the aim of much professional endeavour to discover through collection and comparison of statistics the factors which are likely to produce a good library service. Such ambitious undertakings as the Library Association survey, the County Libraries statistical reports, the London and Home Counties' Branch quinquennial reports and the McColvin report are examples of attempts to formulate for the benefit of all, standards which by contrast of good and bad may lead to the general improvement of the library service everywhere.
