DescriptionHarrison cannot help him in the matter of a general index of engineering subjects, such subjects do not come within the scope of the Library here which contains practically nothing of a technical nature excepting the Proceedings of important societies like the Civil Engineers and their own institute. Neither has he heard of the proposal to form an English institute of technical bibliography.
