I am very glad of this opportunity of telling you something about the work of the Technical Information and Documents Unit, because I am sure that this organization has something to offer both the engineer and the librarian. Scientists and engineers often say that they have not time to read, while librarians are just as certain that the scientist does not know how to read. Doubtless there is some truth in both these generalizations. However, it is also true that T.I.D.U. exists primarily to help the scientist and engineer, and one of the ways it does this is to help them to see the things they ought to read.
