ASSOCIATION AFFAIRS UNESCO have had little success in persuading scientific journals to accept some degree of standardization in the past and it is hard to imagine that many of the 600 journals would agree to such a drastic change in procedure. However, supposing they did all change t o Kroger's system, the number of individual items which specialist libraries would have to handle would increase by at least fivefold and in some cases tenfold, and the administrative and staff problems involved would be considerable. In Kroger's system of distributing the world's dairy scmnee literature, if it was carried through to its logical conclusion, dairy scientists would be confronted with summaries only of papers of possible interest, scattered haphazardly throughout some 600 scientific journals. Has he forgotten that members of the American Dairy Science Association, for a very nmdest sum, can have on their desks each month a complete and classified survey o£ the world's dairy literature, in the form of the abstracts and review articles published in Dairy Science Abstracts? No dairy scientist today is faced with the preposterous task of gathering the information in the 600-odd scientific journals containing the bulk of the world's dairy science literature. This is being done f o r him by a trained and competent specialist staff at Shinfield, England. I f he wishes to follow up an abstract in greater detail, the author's address is usually given or he can obtain a photocopy of the full p a p e r for a modest sum by writing to us. Already, over 600 American dairy scientists have solved their problems of dealing with the vast volume of world dairy literature by subscribing to Dairy Science Abstracts--through the American Dairy Science Association scheme. I appeal to all those members of the American Dairy Science Association who have not yet taken advantage of the scheme to place their orders for Dairy Science Abstracts with the Secretary-Treasurer, Dr. H. F. Judkins. Let them remember that for the price of only one large porterhouse steak annually they can have the key to the world's dairy literature at their fingertips. REFBR]iI~ CE
