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

This is a slightly condensed version of the address presented by Sir Harry Melville, KCB, FRS, Secretary of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research at the Annual General Meeting of the Association of Technical Institutions. The address contained a great deal of information of direct value to technical college teachers, much of it quite insufficiently well‐known, and we believe that reproducing this information here will serve a very useful purpose.

Abstract

A number of information services produce bulletins of abstracts and similar material by typing a stencil and stitching the sheets together with an ordinary office stapling machine. This is a tedious, fatiguing and time‐consuming operation, but if badly done can ruin the appearance of a duplicated document. Enquiries among a number of bulletin producers and makers of wire stitching machines showed that no attempt has apparently been made to devise an easier and quicker method, and a small gadget was therefore constructed. This has been in use in the Metal Box Research Division for some months, and is greatly appreciated by the typist. Several visitors have commented approvingly on it, and a short description may be of wider interest.

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.
