This paper has been prepared at very short notice. When I was asked to do it I at once examined all the reports of the Aslib Conferences. To my great surprise I found that until the 1945 (20th) Conference very little mention had been made of it. However, last year two very informative papers appeared: ‘The Planning and equipment of research libraries and information bureaux’, by E.J. Carter, and ‘Some notes on the planning of research libraries’, by S. R. Pierce. These two papers and the discussion on them deserve careful study: the present contribution is really supplementary to them.
