Theprinted word is neither more nor less than the judgment of a specialist in printed form. Our files and our libraries are really vast collections of expert opinions in formal, recorded form. These words of Dr. Ralph R.

Its purpose is clearly the maintenance of whatever is available of the most uptodate information on each subject.
