School Libraries under the new English Education Act: a Symposium

Library Review

ISSN: 0024-2535

Article publication date: 1 January 1947



In earlier numbers of this magazine we have conducted symposia on the subject of libraries in schools, and the various contributions have proved informative and interesting. The field is now broadening under the provisions of the new Education Act, whose schedule on building regulations allows for the project of a library room. No doubt the accommodation aspect will duly be fully described in an official memorandum. Just now, however, the opportunity is looming big for the systematic development of really useful libraries in secondary schools. The contributors to the present symposium represent educationists as well as librarians, and we are glad to present their views.
