The group meetings have continued regularly since the last Report appeared. Several members from the earliest days are still present at most meetings, but new members have also been welcomed. The meetings continue to be the ideal medium for refurbishing old ideas, or trying out new ones, however outrageous, in a spirit of cheerful goodwill. There have been frequent visitors, many from overseas, and if they are unprepared they may find the rapid changes of discussion somewhat bewildering. Among the visitors who made special contributions have been: Mrs J. Aitchison, who described her thesaurofacet scheme for the English Electric Co.; Dr Perreault (Director of Libraries, University of Alabama in Huntsville), who discussed the relations between philosophy and science; Mr Bhattacharya (Documentation Research and Training Centre, Bangalore), who described the work of the Centre (established by Ranganathan in 1962); and Dr H. Borko (University of Southern California) who gave a wonderfully clear account of his work on automated classification.
