Abstract

MANY things have happened since this magazine first appeared in a slim and modest form in July, 1898. Librarianship in all its branches has advanced in nearly every direction, and a more youthful and enthusiastic spirit is abroad, which may, or may not, eclipse the pioneer work of those who strove during the nineties to improve upon past ideals and work. Considering the nature of the accomplishments of the older generation, it will be a hard task, at any rate under existing conditions in the United Kingdom, to achieve much more. In America, where there is less financial paralysis, it is more probable that novel developments will be evolved, but in the old country nothing very great can be expected till the rate limitation is at least doubled. Nothing has been done by Parliament in twelve years to legislate in favour of Public Libraries of any kind, and although the Library Association and various municipalities have tried hard for a revision of the library law, pressure of parliamentary business, and the indifference of statesmen towards this question have proved too much for the friends of the library movement.
