It is difficult to see how these things can be done by privateorprofessional initiative, Governments can experiment with the big centres : examples are VINITI, the United States Clearinghouse for Federal Scientific and Technical Information (United States Department of Commerce/National Bureau of Standards, 1964), the National Lending Library for Science and Technology, the Japan Information Centre for Science and Technology.
