The last ten years have seen a remarkable growth in co‐operative activities organized by clearly defined sections of the membership of Aslib. Three Aslib Branches—in the Midlands, the North of England, and Scotland—have each arranged series of conferences through which Aslib's purposes have been brought to the notice of large numbers of organizations outside London and the Home Counties. Ten Aslib Groups, each representing an industry or a homogeneous group of industries, have held meetings and short lecture courses and have undertaken a range of activities resulting in practical benefits to the industries concerned. Work of this nature, springing from a genuine desire for professional collaboration, can materially increase the impact which library and information services make upon their parent organizations. It may, therefore, be worth while to take stock of the achievements of the Aslib Groups during the first few years of their existence, and also to make some assessment of their potential role in Aslib's further development.
