Abstract

In an organization of medium size (say 6–10 people) the staff can reasonably include at least one qualified librarian and one person with subject qualifications. This makes possible a division of work into two broad types: library work; and technical enquiry work. Further sub‐division is possible and usually desirable, the ideal being that each person should be a specialist in one job (or group of jobs) and responsible for it, but capable of doing also (during holiday periods, etc.) at least one other person's work.
