Abstract

Industrial executives frequently require special information in order to solve their particular problems. A Sales Manager may have to estimate the market for a new chemical. A Production Engineer may require technical data in order to undertake the high‐speed machining of steel. A Works Manager may have to find the correct anti‐corrosive treatment for a certain type of ferrous metal. This kind of information and much else can often be obtained from those who have a specialist knowledge of the subject. There are also many cases in which the published results of investigations into special problems will be available in libraries.
