Abstract

It has often been said that a great part of the strength of Aslib lies in the fact that it brings together those whose experience has been gained in many widely differing fields but who have a common interest in the means by which information may be collected and disseminated to the greatest advantage. Lists of its members have, therefore, a more than ordinary value since they present, in miniature, a cross‐section of institutions and individuals who share this special interest.

Abstract

AT the very outset of this paper it is necessary to make clear that it is not an attempt to compile an exhaustive bibliography of literature relating to special librarianship. Neither space nor time permit this. In fact, the references given can only claim to be a sample of the wealth of material on the subject and this paper is submitted in the hope that it will stimulate others to more scholarly efforts. Reference numbers throughout this paper refer to items in the ‘Select list of references to the literature of special librarianship’, section 2 onwards.

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.

In the absence of published data which would make possible an examination of the costs and value of a large group of information services, attention is concentrated in this paper on a single organization—the Information Department of the British Scientific Instrument Research Association.

Abstract

The 15th annual conference of the Aslib Aeronautical Group is to be held on Friday 25th to Sunday 27th March 1966, at the College of Aeronautics, Cranfield. A session which should provoke discussion is on ‘Saving time in the library’. At this, speakers will present short papers on the pros and cons of such topics as periodical circulation, abstracts versus title‐listing, and printed indexes versus catalogue cards; discussion will follow. The technical paper will be on ‘Wind tunnels’ and will be given by Mr R. Hills, Chief Executive of the Aircraft Research Association Ltd. A historical paper will be presented by Air Comm. A. Wheeler, and a paper entitled ‘Make your own thesaurus’ by Mr Stevens of the Ministry of Defence, Navy Department, NSTIC. More information will be given later and application forms will be sent to members of the Aeronautical Group. Others who wish to attend should apply to Mr E. J.MacAdam, 74 Stancliffe Road, Bedford.
