Abstract

WHAT SHOULD A keynote speaker say on an occasion such as this Particularly a speaker such as myselfalmost totally ignorant of every subject to be discussed in your later sessions Have I, I wonder, quite innocently given the organisers the same impression, in agreeing to talk at this dinner, as Dr Johnson gave his friends when he said he could repeat a complete chapter of the Natural history of Iceland from the Danish of Horrebow The chapter reads Concerning snakes, there are no snakes to be met with throughout the whole island. But I think I can manage a few more sentences than that, and since I have not been altogether unconcerned with library planning, with research, the role of management, and with education in its broadest cultural sense I think we can find sufficient common ground to justify my appearance tonight. Indeed as head of a library staff of 1700 how could I not be concerned with library education
