Abstract

I was asked to speak on ‘Information Service: the Contribution of the University’. I take that to mean specifically the contribution that a University library can make towards satisfying the information needs of industrial research: but I hope you will not think me irrelevant if I begin by discussing the nature and functions of a university library in general, for these determine the contribution which it can make, and must therefore be understood before that contribution can be assessed.
