ISSN: 0024-2535

Publication date: 1 July 1960


In the library field “who fears to speak of ‘ 98”—1898?, By that year 390 authorities had adopted the Libraries Acts. Public librarians had a permanent majority in the Library Association. The Library ceased to be the official organ, which it had been for a decade, though John Y. W. MacAlister owned it. MacAlister resigned the honorary secretaryship of the Library Association which he had brilliantly and gaily served for eleven years. The Library Association Record was planned to replace The Library in January 1899. Duff Brown founded The Library World. He published his Adjustable Classification. The first winter classes for course teaching in librarianship were inaugurated by Bishop Mandell Creighton. The Library Association became a chartered corporation. The Assistants’ Association founded The Library Assistant.
