Members of the Classification Research Group have made a number of specialist schemes which are now successfully in operation, and a symposium of users' opinions, shortly to appear in the Journal of Documentation, shows that they are well satisfied. The CRG discussions over ten years have centred mainly on this type of scheme, but lately we have spent a lot of time on the problems posed by a general scheme and its relation to these specialist ones. We have keenly felt the need for a general scheme, mainly because all of our own schemes have to cater for marginal fields and related subjects outside the special field, but also because many of us are continually asked for advice on the choice of a classification by the librarians of newly‐established libraries. This puts us in the very difficult position of not wishing to recommend anything already existing, but having nothing to offer in its place.
