Abstract

OUR articles are a return to an old theme. That two such writers consider the old problem of the central cataloguing of books worthy of ventilation at this time seems at first a paradox. But one of them recalls to us that planning in wartime, even if that war is in its early Stage, for the inevitable peace, is a legitimate employment. When the figures are Studied which are submitted as sufficient for running an office where every new book could be catalogued adequately, and cards of the entries issued, we are surprised that we have never been able to bring so obvious a reform about. It would be interesting, and it might be chastening, to discover how much the total library service spends on the cataloguing of new books. When the Library Association has completed its warplans it might be persuaded to set up an enquiry into the subject. Meanwhile we hope our readers will send us their impressions of these articles.
