Abstract

IT may prove, on due experience, that the main result of the Edinburgh Conference was the beginning of an Imperial Library Association. It has often occurred to thoughtful librarians that while we have been feeling about for contacts with libraries of other countriesand how desirable this has been everyone is awarewe have been in danger of forgetting our own household. Of course, we know that a public speaker declared recently that there was no such thing as the British Empire but we are also aware that there is a linked series of nations speaking one tongue and, as far as libraries are concerned, having common interests. Can we bring these closer together We hope and believe so. Our imperial colleagues might not even exist, if we judged by our library journals. This is probably because they themselves rarely send us any news of their doings. We hope that they may now be persuaded to take part in the family library counsels as well as in the political ones. Our pages, at any rate, are open to them.
