Abstract:Starting from the proposition that it is the proper function of a library school to give leadership to the profession, the Faculty of the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library Science have from time to time attempted to identify major challenge problems of our age and to formulate appropriate responses to them. It is ever more clear that a major problem perhaps the major challenge of the profession in our generation is that posed by the mounting volume of publication in combination with the increased use of a complex technological society for factual information. In a sense all of librarianship bears on this problem. But more specifically this is the province of documentation and its special tools of high-speed machines. To help meet this challenge problem, the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library Science set up a graduate course on "Information Storage and Retrieval" which was offered for the first time in the fall of 1962. Then in the spring of 1963 a Clinic on Library Application of Data Processing was held in Urbana, the papers of which constitute this volume.
