In‐service provision in England and Wales is increasingly a partnership between local education authorities and higher education, moving away from the traditional domination by higher educational institutions. The early stages are described of an initiative involving collaboration between both sectors for the benefit of educational managers in higher education, LEAs or schools, planning, providing or participating in similar endeavours.
Action research which considers performance indicators within an English polytechnic is outlined, with emphasis on the analysis of course monitoring, review and validation documentation. Extracts from an interim research report are presented, together with related conclusions and recommendations.
OUR ISSUES DO NOT PROVE ANYTHING? “READING is finished” is the portentious quotation from Richard Hoggart's address to the School Libraries Association which we find in small type at the foot of a column of the American L.A. Bulletin. A year or two ago, with apprehension and gravity, an American writer asserted that one of the darker signs of life in the U.S.A. was that a generation had arrived that had lost not only the art but the willing power to read, or perhaps never had them to lose. The first American report we have opened this year is The Brooklyn Public Library Salutes its Readers, its 61st annual one. Mr. Francis R. St. John, the chief librarian, says in his first paragraph “this has been a record year” and continues, “This year readers were responsible for the greatest circulation in our history”. Yes, 9½ millions of it. The question occurs: if no one reads and books are finished, how can these statements and figures be reconciled?
Through the energetic initiative of “The Globe” newspaper a Middle Classes Union has been formed for the purpose of organising that great body of people into an Alliance that shall be capable of making its power felt. A preliminary meeting was held recently under the presidency of Major J. R. Pretyman Newman, M.P., of gentlemen interested in the scheme recently outlined in “The Globe” for combining the Middle Classes in a Union for their own protection. All present were unanimous as to the necessity for the formation of such an organisation, and after discussion it was provisionally agreed that its title should be—
The purpose of this paper is to suggest two things: first, that the scientific and technological developments and increased regulation that have shaped homicide investigations in England and Wales over the last few decades have provided today’s investigators with opportunities not available to their predecessors, and play a key role in solving unsolved homicides. Second, however, the authors suggest that such developments have created new challenges for investigators, challenges that impede current investigations, potentially creating the future unsolved cases.
This paper draws on two qualitative studies that comprised over eight months of ethnographic research, observations, interviews with serving and retired homicide detectives and case file analysis.
The widespread changes to homicide investigations in England and Wales have been valuable in many respects, notably, they have allowed detectives to look back in time and bring longstanding unsolved cases to a close. However, change, although well intentioned, might actually be creating future cold cases as detectives endeavour to manage the volume of information now generated during investigations, fast evolving scientific and technological techniques and an increase in bureaucracy.
This study is helpful for: improving investigative practice; learning from change; reducing unsolved homicides vs a rise in new cold cases; and innovative and entrepreneurial investigators.
Utilising qualitative research, this paper contributes to the academic literature exploring homicide investigation in England and Wales, offering insight into the challenges facing detectives and the potential impact of these upon solving past and present homicide cases.
In her first article on the activities of the Wool ITB, Miss Allsop outlines the progress made so far in an industry less disciplined than the engineering giants. The organizational structure is explained and local difficulties pointed. Next month the author will investigate in depth the methods the Wool ITB uses to raise the standards of training.

Since the first Volume of this Bibliography there has been an explosion of literature in all the main areas of business. The researcher and librarian have to be able to uncover specific articles devoted to certain topics. This Bibliography is designed to help. Volume III, in addition to the annotated list of articles as the two previous volumes, contains further features to help the reader. Each entry within has been indexed according to the Fifth Edition of the SCIMP/SCAMP Thesaurus and thus provides a full subject index to facilitate rapid information retrieval. Each article has its own unique number and this is used in both the subject and author index. The first Volume of the Bibliography covered seven journals published by MCB University Press. This Volume now indexes 25 journals, indicating the greater depth, coverage and expansion of the subject areas concerned.
