Abstract

Plans for a campaign for books for devastated libraries are getting under way in the United States and Canada. Since the beginning of the war there have been appeals by special groups on behalf of various libraries or the libraries of certain countries. We all know that the best organization and use of material can be achieved only through a joint co‐ordinated effort on behalf of all libraries that have been damaged or destroyed in the war. Launching of such a campaign was deferred for various reasons, but now it seems to be taking its first toddling steps.
