SYMPOSIUM ON THE NATURE AND SCOPE OF FUEL AND POWER LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SERVICES IN THE UNITED KINGDOM Mr. Frank Hickman, Chief Librarian, Ministry of Fuel and Power, acted as Chairman for this session. SUMMARY REPORT H E period available at the conference for the discussion of the Fuel and Power Group's Symposium1 proved far too short for conclusive debating of the many ideas and opinions expressed. Generally, it was agreed that the Symposium was practical and revealing and formed an excellent basis on which to build a truly representative and informative guide to the Fuel and Power documentary services in the United King­ dom. Such a guide, or review of resources of organizations within the ambit of the Aslib Fuel and Power Group, was recommended for investi­ gation by the Group Committee, which might give consideration to arrangement under (a) organizations predominantly concerned with fuel and power, and (b) organizations concerned incidentally with fuel and power. This recommendation emerged from discussion of a viewpoint that a clear definition of fuel and power was essential to practical limita­ tion of the Group's membership and area of activity. Mr. V. Biske proposed that a suitable working definition might be taken from Article 1 of The census of production (1954) (Returns and Exempted Persons) Order, 1953. (S.I. 1953, No. 939): 'An undertaking in the field of production of coal, gas, electricity, oil shale, crude or refined petroleum or shale oil products.' Some support was shown for the views that a Petroleum sub-group was needed to serve more closely the interests of representatives in this branch of Fuel and Power, and that the diversity of classifications revealed by the Symposium justified exploration of the possibilities for compilation and adoption of a standard Fuel and Power scheme.

Abstract

SYMPOSIUM ON THE NATURE AND SCOPE OF FUEL AND POWER LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SERVICES IN THE UNITED KINGDOM Mr. Frank Hickman, Chief Librarian, Ministry of Fuel and Power, acted as Chairman for this session. SUMMARY REPORT H E period available at the conference for the discussion of the Fuel and Power Group's Symposium1 proved far too short for conclusive debating of the many ideas and opinions expressed. Generally, it was agreed that the Symposium was practical and revealing and formed an excellent basis on which to build a truly representative and informative guide to the Fuel and Power documentary services in the United King­ dom. Such a guide, or review of resources of organizations within the ambit of the Aslib Fuel and Power Group, was recommended for investi­ gation by the Group Committee, which might give consideration to arrangement under (a) organizations predominantly concerned with fuel and power, and (b) organizations concerned incidentally with fuel and power. This recommendation emerged from discussion of a viewpoint that a clear definition of fuel and power was essential to practical limita­ tion of the Group's membership and area of activity. Mr. V. Biske proposed that a suitable working definition might be taken from Article 1 of The census of production (1954) (Returns and Exempted Persons) Order, 1953. (S.I. 1953, No. 939): 'An undertaking in the field of production of coal, gas, electricity, oil shale, crude or refined petroleum or shale oil products.' Some support was shown for the views that a Petroleum sub-group was needed to serve more closely the interests of representatives in this branch of Fuel and Power, and that the diversity of classifications revealed by the Symposium justified exploration of the possibilities for compilation and adoption of a standard Fuel and Power scheme. The Chairman agreed that matters such as these should be referred to the Group Committee. Those present at the session agreed to amplify statements included in the Symposium or to provide statements for the first time. 1 Available from the Aslib office as a preprint, 2s. per copy.
