Employers are slowly increasing their understanding and awareness of counselling, the services it provides and its professionals. Counselling agencies need to promote not only their services but the principles of good counselling to enable employers to make informed decisions and choices.

Abstract

International tourism is steadily growing. Some people welcome this growth which supports economic and social development. Others are suspicious and afraid of the threat which tourism could create for the tourist destinations, the loss of cultural identity and of social alienation to its society. Reality is more complex than these two contrary positions suggest. After analyzing the existent attempts to explain the social effects of tourism, this paper intends to illustrate the variability of these effects. In this regard, the globalisation of human activities and its consequences on cultural identity are taken into account.

Abstract

BOOKS and resources are the staple of learning, whether in the general form of an aspect of a subject discipline—the textbook or its non‐book resource equivalent—or in the more specialised form of the learning resource ‘ … designed … with the learning needs of particular students on particular courses’. But the very development of specific learning resources, together with the development of new technologies in the more conventional areas of library work, has brought about the need for a close association between librarians and educational technologists.

Abstract

Here is the long‐awaited fourth edition of Ralph De Sola's classic Abbreviations Dictionary. This updated edition of a work first published in 1958 is the largest, most complete compilation of its kind — a reference book far surpassing all others in the field. Mr. De Sola has expanded his work to include more than 130,000 definitions and entries — over 77,000 definitions, over 54,000 entries. The current edition offers abbreviations, acronyms, anonyms, contradictions, initials and nicknames, short forms and slang shortcuts, and signs and symbols covering disciplines which range from the arts to the advanced sciences and embrace all areas of human knowledge and activity.

Abstract

THE catalogue, as a library appliance of importance, has had more attention devoted to it than, perhaps, any other method or factor of librarianship. Its construction, materials, rules for compilation and other aspects have all been considered at great length, and in every conceivable manner, so that little remains for exposition save some points in the policy of the catalogue, and its effects on progress and methods. In the early days of the municipal library movement, when methods were somewhat crude, and hedged round with restrictions of many kinds, the catalogue, even in the primitive form it then assumed, was the only key to the book‐wealth of a library, and as such its value was duly recognized. As time went on, and the vogue of the printed catalogue was consolidated, its importance as an appliance became more and more established, and when the first Newcastle catalogue appeared and received such an unusual amount of journalistic notice, the idea of the printed catalogue as the indispensable library tool was enormously enhanced from that time till quite recently. One undoubted result of this devotion to the catalogue has been to stereotype methods to a great extent, leading in the end to stagnation, and there are places even now where every department of the library is made to revolve round the catalogue. Whether it is altogether wise to subordinate everything in library work to the cult of the catalogue has been questioned by several librarians during the past few years, and it is because there is so much to be said against this policy that the following reflections are submitted.

Abstract

I suppose that most noticeable of all the changes in our profession since I came into it has been the multiplicity of the methods by which one can become a librarian. A. E. Standley says in a recent article in the L.A.R., in 1970: “The term librarian includes the Library Association chartered librarian, the graduate with a degree in librarianship, the scholar librarian, the information and intelligence officer, the translator, the abstracter, the non‐library‐qualified subject expert”.

Abstract

EVERY presidential address to the Library Association has had its own quality, just as our Presidents have each brought their own personal contribution to Association history. Some will recall from Dr. Bronowski's quite charming address the small foreign child, the possessor of only a few words of English, who, asking the Librarian of Whitechapel, a tall, thin, moustached man, for some book that would help him to fuller English, was given Midshipman Easy. It was “the perfect choice”, he was able to say some forty years after. That is characteristic of the President's method ; a generous recounting of his experiences in his own cultural development, with many all‐too‐brief side reflections on the relations of science to the humanities, the ultimate indispensability of reading in education and therefore of libraries as its providers. An assessment of Panizzi as our greatest and of Conrad as a novelist comes in, both like himself men born to another language and yet of extraordinary attainment in the adopted tongue which they had to learn in adult life. A repeated tribute to public libraries, to which he himself owed much and a plea that they should be careful to provide books which would enable not only the scientist to qualify in more general cultural reading but would enable the layman to know the language of science which to so many is indeed foreign. He instanced “the concept of relativity, the concept of quantum junips, the principle of uncertainty, the statistical principle,—ways of thinking which rank among the imaginative achievements of the human mind. But because they are evolved in science, they are formulated in language which few people understand”. His main plea, the one that the press chose to record, was for a standard edition of the classics of science, such as Newton's Opticks, Darwin's Origin of Species, the essays of William Kingdom Clifford, and of Charles Pearce, which can speak the language of science to this generation, as can the later ones of Sherrington, Eddington and Schrodinger, and for the availability of these in all public libraries as, indeed, in others. Librarians, he thought, could do much to bring about such an edition and its distribution.
