Abstract

The Intelligence Library of the Control Commission for Germany contains some 20,000 books and pamphlets, and its function is to provide an information service on German affairs for the benefit of the various divisions and branches of the main headquarters of the Control Commission in Germany. It is true that few special libraries are ever likely to be formed in similar circumstances, but some account of the ways in which these unique conditions were met may serve to illustrate the fundamental principle that the organization of a special library must be freely adaptable to the particular circumstances governing its existence.
