Abstract

This paper bears so comprehensive a title that, if I were to do it anything like justice, there would be no time for anything else this morning. However, within the limits of the time allowed me, I hope to say something about a public scientific and technical library I know quite well—that of Sheffield—which may explain why its functions differ from those of special libraries, and to some extent how they are different. First of all, a word on our background.
