Abstract

Ever since it became regular practice to allow undergraduate readers free access to the shelves, university and college librarians have been conscious of a responsibility for offering them help and guidance in making the best use of the opportunities thus afforded them. For long, however, the problem was regarded as a purely domestic one, and each librarian sought his own solution to it according to his own lights, and in conformity with local circumstances.
