Abstract

I gather that this paper was given its somewhat pretentious title in an endeavour to emphasize the practical approach which it was hoped I should bring to this subject this evening. How far I shall be able to live up to this hope I hesitate to say. I realize that the arrangement of information in your libraries presents a very practical problem and that it is very much of a practical issue with you what form of arrangement you shall choose for your catalogues and materials. Some of you, I believe, have not solved the problem at all and others of you are dis‐satisfied with the solution which you have found. Only a very few enviable geniuses have found the complete solution to their own particular problems.
