Excerpt from A British Library Itinerary
A little handbook of this kind has been frequently in demand especially by Colonial and American librarians who have some time to spend in Britain. As a rule, these visitors have no interest in seeing the same kind of library methods over and over again, and for that reason an effort has been made to avoid describing libraries which are nearly identical in arrangements, Many libraries of interest are thus omitted, but it will be understood that this is inevitable where selection is absolutely necessary. The visitor who uses this little brochure will have the advantage of visiting places which possess any interest, while he will be spared the waste of time, trouble and cost of going to libraries Whose methods he has seen in other places. A selective list must necessarily be incomplete, and for any serious omissions the author can only apologize in advance.
