Library Review

ISSN: 0024-2535

Article publication date: 1 April 1953



Having worked in India for the last three years where I have met and talked to many Indian librarians, taken part in their discussions, and visited 100 or more libraries of all types and sizes, Frank M. Gardner's article in the Summer, 1953, issue of the LIBRARY REVIEW had a particular interest for me. The problems touched upon by Mr. Gardner are problems that I see and talk about almost every working day, and it is because of my up‐bringing in the earthy, matter‐of‐fact school of public librarianship no less than the dictates of my official capacity that I ally myself to my Indian colleague in his search for a solution to the complex problem that faces him in his fight to provide a reasonable and efficient library service for his countryman; to gain a suitable recognition for his profession and so obtain for himself adequate salary and good working conditions.
