Abstract

WE hope that all London librarians will give full consideration to the project of the London Branch of the Library Association to provide a union catalogue of the nonfiction Stocks of Metropolitan libraries. They are to be asked if they will cooperate in the scheme by providing cards of their Stock of uniform size, or by making some contribution a more difficult matter this to the cost of the catlogue. Such a catalogue kept at the Central Library for Students, combined with the telephone and general goodwill, would bring about a coordination of libraties on a voluntary basis with results in good as yet scarcely realized. The idea is not novel it was rejected a score of years ago as visionary or impractable. It may have been visionary then it is not so now. Modern librarians simply must get together if they wish to avoid being made to do so.
