Mr Edwards pointed out the vast differences of services between special and other libraries and the difficulties of co‐operation. Even between special libraries working in the same field the services varied considerably, their development being influenced by the wishes of the financially supporting members and the initiative of the permanent officials. Between two special libraries there might be all the differences in activity between a mausoleum and Piccadilly Circus. Mr. Edwards could but deplore the former, and knew that those present would only wish to hear about the latter—the special library giving fair service.
