Abstract

This conference is, I understand, called primarily to advocate the search for and show means for methodizing the provision of technical information in industrial companies—the systematization of the answering of questions that arise in the conception, design, production and service of manufactured articles and materials. Three sources of such information have already been dealt with: the great public library, by Mr. Hinton—who, I am sure, would not lightly reject a challenge to provide literature—given that it exists—on any subject; an equally great, university library in which all branches of learning are represented; and the great works library, by Dr. Parke.
