    Reports the meeting of the International Conference of Bibliography at Brussels where it was 'the question of science bibliographies that has been most debated. Probably the science world stands in greatest need of the assistance to be derived from catalogues and indexes, but the task of satisfying the various demands of scientists is no light one' (528). Gives further details of Herbert H Field's scheme for a bibliography of zoological literature, and notes that the 'only practical outcome' of the conference 'seems to be a few general rules for making references of medical subjects which Mr. James Blake Bailey, Librarian to the Royal College of Surgeons, drew up a few months ago' (529).
