Abstract

THE EASTER Vacation Course held at the School of Librarianship and Archives, University College, London, 49 April 1949, was in the nature of an experiment. It took the form of a practical study of the practices and problems of library cooperation, as revealed by visits to a number of libraries and other interested bodies, and interviews with their librarians, carried out by members of the course working in pairs. It depended for its success on the enthusiasm and initiative of the students, who were selected to ensure that they were of sufficient experience and seniority to make an effective contribution and on the willingness of busy librarians to spare time for interviews and to make them as informative as possible. The School is greatly indebted to the librarians of the following libraries for their collaboration
