Abstract

The Chairman, Mr. E. B. Uvarov, Head of the Technical Information Bureau of Courtaulds, Ltd., Coventry, introduced the first speaker, Miss H. Thornton, of T.M.M. (Research), Ltd. He said that she was a welcome newcomer to the ranks of Aslib speakers, but no stranger to the members of the Aslib Textile Group, who knew her as the Group's very efficient and persistent Secretary, who prodded them into activity with skill and tact, and with a great measure of success. One of the more valuable results of such activity was the Group's work on translations, which present rather special problems in the textile field. The Chairman then invited Miss Thornton to speak on this subject.
