In arranging the program for the Spring meeting
of the Division, an attempt has been made to
extend the coverage of interests of the papers as
much as possible. As a result there will be two
symposia, each requiring one day, and a one-day
session of general papers.
One of the symposia, entitled "Literature
Sources for Chemical Market Research," is under
the chairmanship of Dr. John R. Skeen of Foster
D. Snell, Inc. It will emphasize the major role
played by chemical literature in the preparation
of the necessary surveys.
't^The second symposium, entitled "Symposium on the
Operation of Chemical-Biological Clearing Houses,"
under the chairmanship of Dr. W. H. Longenecker
of E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Company, will
probably be cosponsored by the Division of Biological
Chemistry. This symposium should be of
great interest to those having to do with the
collection and evaluation of data.
WVhile the following papers for the general
session are not in their final order, it appears
at this time that the following papers will be
presented: "Multilingual Dictionaries," by J. E.
Hiolnstrom of UNESCO; "Abstracting, Classifying,
and Indexing of Organic Chemical Reactions," by
T'lheilheimer; UThe Use of the Cardatype in the
direct Publication of Bibliographies from Punched
Cards," by Erwin Hoffman and Frederick Dhyse of
National Institute of Health; "Combination of IBM
and Microcards," by Theodore J. Williams and
Arthur Rose of Pennsylvania State College; "The
Universal Micro-reader Project," by G. Miles
Coirad of the Navy Research Section of the Library
of Congress; and possibly another paper on a
related subject, namely, evaluation of the Navy
Research Section's project of microcarding TIP
iTechnical Information Pilot) reports for distrit$ion
to Government contractors. These general
,apers will be followed by a panel discussion of
the Company Abstract Bulletin.' There will be
lve. brief papers by representatives of various
Companies (pharmaceutical, chemical, food, petroleum,
etc. ) and then audience participation in a
general discussion of the selection of material to
be. abstracted, who does the abstracting (library
Staff or research men, or both), value of a
permanent file of these abstracts, etc.
":Begin to make arrangements now to come to

TIlE ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY
While space and time do not permit a detailed
discussion here of the "Annotated Bibliography on
Chemical Documentation," which appears in each
issue of this bulletin, it seems appropriate to
comment at this time on the role of this feature.
Its growth in scope and coverage reflect the
assistance of the distinguished literature chemists
who contribute to it. That it fills a definite
need is evidenced by the enthusiasm with
which it has been received.
While the first criterion for items for this
bibliography is that they should be concerned
with chemical documentation, every attempt is
also made to include the literature on technical
documentation in general. The close relationship
which exists between chemistry, physics, biology,
medicine, and engineering is even closer when concerned
with documentation techniques which hold
