Nothing is more important and beneficial than the acquisition and expansion of knowledge. Indeed, perhaps the only real hope for humanity in its present portentious situation lies in the dissemination of more perfect knowledge sufficiently widely and sufficiently quickly to prevent the imperfect from erupting into irreparable disaster. It is, however, also important not only to have knowledge but to know what knowledge is available and where to obtain it—a sentiment with which I venture to believe that librarians, who are the custodians of knowledge, will readily agree. In the operation and development of industry, knowing what knowledge is available and where to find it is of supreme importance. Sometimes help is required to bring to notice knowledge which is available but of which there is insufficient awareness. This is the reason for the existence of the Technical Liaison Service about which I have been asked to say a few words.
