Abstract

On 18 February 1945 the Conference of the Association of Scientific Workers passed a resolution stressing the urgent need for the closest collaboration between scientists of all countries ‘including the fullest interchange of scientific and technical knowledge’. It is hardly surprising that a paper on information services was included in the programme, and it was generally felt that the response indicated a long‐felt need. The issue is significant. Five hundred scientists representing some sixteen thousand from all over Britain, and in agreement with co‐operating societies in many other countries, demand co‐ordination of effort, including an adequate flow of scientific information. The long and very important programme of the Conference did not allow time for discussing the matter in detail; but since this question is one which concerns the scientific and scholarly world as a whole, I may perhaps be justified in presenting a survey of the situation in so far as scholarly and scientific information can be supplied by means of photographic techniques.
