Abstract

Much has been said, and written, on systems of journal circulation. Mr. Hanson's contribution to this subject is valuable in that, as distinct from its predecessors, it describes no one system in particular but attempts to analyse the cost, in time, of circulation. It incidentally provides some figures by which the efficiency of this operation can be measured in so far as it involves the useful dissemination of information.

Abstract

The Institute of the Motor Industry, founded in 1920, is an incorporated institution providing qualifications, by examination, for executives and administrative staff in the motor industry. Most of the membership is drawn from the servicing and repair side of the industry but there is an increasing number of members engaged in the manufacture of vehicles and ancillary products. Thus, any library service provided must cover the needs of these individuals, as well as those of students studying for the examinations of the Institute.

Abstract

FROM 5th to 8th October, 1951, Aslib was fortunate in holding its Annual Conference again at Ashorne Hill, near Leamington Spa, and our thanks are due for the third time to Colonel and Mrs. J. H. Alexander and their staff for the excellence of the catering and domestic arrangements. The weather also co‐operated and sunshine displayed all the autumn beauties of the garden and countryside.

Abstract

The formation, in May, 1949, of the new Aslib, incorporating the Association of Special Libraries and Information Bureaux and the British Society for International Bibliography, led to a change in the dating of Aslib's financial year, which will now run from January to December instead of from July to June. This report, therefore, extends over eighteen months and links the activities of the old organization with those of its successor.
