The Chairman welcomed delegates on behalf of Aslib. She recalled that at the international conference on classification held some years before at Dorking, there had been a permanent air of intellectual euphoria. Nobody had gone to bed. If as much interest were aroused on this occasion, delegates must remember that they could not do in two or three hours what had proved impossible to do in a week, including nights, at Dorking. Dorking had been a particularly fruitful conference. Some of the members, writing on classification afterwards, wrote ‘après Dorking’. She did not know whether they would also say ‘après Belgravia’.
