A SURVEY OF THE PRESENT STATE OF ENGINEERING BIBLIOGRAPHY

A SURVEY OF THE PRESENT STATE OF ENGINEERING BIBLIOGRAPHY The subject of this survey is one of great concern to the writer and to many technical people engaged in research laboratories and industry, and is one which we should greatly wish to see placed on a more satisfactory basis in this country. There is overlapping which is deplored by some, but thought by others to matter little. Some feel that reform is certainly needed and, to be effective, must be of a farreaching nature, perhaps achieving a joint abstracting system which might be provided by complete cooperation of all the institutions and issued under their joint names. Others think that the Government, through the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, should organize an exhaustive abstracting service, and there is much to be said for this course in view of the fact that successful and paying series of bibliographies, such as Building science abstracts and Water pollution research summary, are already published by H.M. Stationery Office. At the moment of writing, such government publications have the advantage that they do not suffer from the wartime paper restrictions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Documentation Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The subject of this survey is one of great concern to the writer and to many technical people engaged in research laboratories and industry, and is one which we should greatly wish to see placed on a more satisfactory basis in this country. There is overlapping which is deplored by some, but thought by others to matter little. Some feel that reform is certainly needed and, to be effective, must be of a farreaching nature, perhaps achieving a joint abstracting system which might be provided by complete cooperation of all the institutions and issued under their joint names. Others think that the Government, through the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, should organize an exhaustive abstracting service, and there is much to be said for this course in view of the fact that successful and paying series of bibliographies, such as Building science abstracts and Water pollution research summary, are already published by H.M. Stationery Office. At the moment of writing, such government publications have the advantage that they do not suffer from the wartime paper restrictions.
