Abstract

IT is not a bad idea for every librarianwhen time can be found for such relaxationsto undertake a mental and professional stocktaking. Once every few years is sufficient indeed, it is inadvisable to indulge too frequently in such introspective searchings, as it is easy to engender pessimism instead of the needful healthy discontent. What is the position of librarianship today, in general and in particular, as compared with the position a few years ago What advancement really has been made What work really has been done What effect have my own efforts had upon the work in general These are the questions that every earnest library worker is bound to ask himself at times if he is not to develop into an optimistic or pessimistic nuisance. They are necessary to the preservation of a just mental balance.
