Queen Victoria Memorial, Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia


    THE annual report, for the year ended March 31, 1945, of the Queen Victoria Memorial, Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia, indicates that owing to the difficult conditions with which publishers in Great Britain are faced, the limitation of the number copies of books, and the irregular arrival of mails from overseas, the supply of books for the library continues to decrease. In the meantime, the demand for certain cultural and technical literature is being met so far as is possible, but no improvement in the position is expected for some considerable time to come. Of the Salisbury Museum, the Committee reports that in spite of difficulties relative to exhibition and working space, specialization in certain branches of science continues.
