Cooperation between Scientific Libraries


As this subject has recently been receiving attention in NATURE, it may interest some readers to know that the Royal Society of Edinburgh is taking steps for the purpose of finding out what can be done so far as the south of Scotland is concerned. A committee, of which I am convener, has been appointed by the council, and this committee is at present engaged in obtaining information from the various libraries of Edinburgh and Glasgow. It is hoped that later on a conference will be held, at which suggestions for joint action would be considered, and an endeavour made to draw up a scheme of cooperation for consideration by the various societies and institutions directly concerned.
