A Clearing House for Library Literature--Past Experience and Future Possibilities.
This report on the problems facing editors of professional information and library science journals in developing and developed countries suggests broad solutions that might help to transfer and make available the surplus of products in one geographic area to another in which such products are in short supply. Areas addressed include (1) historical background, (2) professional organizations, (3) the paucity of authors, (4) professional responsibilities, (5) editors' requirements, (6) unwanted articles, (7) the industrial world's problems, and (8) the need for a centralized clearinghouse.
