Stanley Jast once said that “The perfect librarian does not exist, never has existed, and assuredly never will exist”, but he went on to add that “good librarians do, and better librarians may”. I am quite sure that every good librarian hopes that he will one day be succeeded by another who is at least his equal, and that thought must frequently act as a spur to all those competent teachers who earnestly strive in the classrooms of library schools and colleges to ensure that an adequate supply of qualified men and women is provided.
