THE SPEED at which technical colleges are paying heed to the exhortations of Circular 322, issued by the Ministry of Education in April 1957, varies throughout the country according to local understanding of the need for college libraries. Fortunately for the future of technical education in Britain the importance of this aspect of training is at last being accepted — mainly through successful demonstration and thanks to the foresight of a few perceptive Principals and their Boards of Governors. Some discussion of the initial problems likely to revolve round such a library may be of assistance to others who have not yet entered the field.
