special libraries, information management


Digitised by the National Library of Australia


Since the A.C.E.R. was established in 1930 the library has steadily developed in order to meet certain obvious needs but without any attempt at exact definition of policy. The increased the Library and the desirability of providing the most efficient service possible have led to the appointment of a trained librarian and to more careful consideration of the functions which the library should perform and the methods it should adopt. The Council is greatly indebted to the National Library at Canberra for making available for about two days the services of Mr. H. L. White, an authority on special libraries. Mr. White thoroughly examined the present situation and methods. He gave very valuable help, both in defining the issues on which basic decisions should be made and in making suggestions as to methods which would best achieve the aims decided on.
