TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Francis Arthur Bather, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 March 1910
DescriptionHarrison does not think there will be any objection to heading the private copies of obituary notices in the way he states, and he would be glad to see the form of words he proposes. Speaking personally, he should be very sorry to accept Bather's dictum that whatever a librarian gets he must catalogue. If there was an attempt to catalogue all the 'separates' that we received it would be more than the present machinery could cope with. Harrison outlines other grievances of cataloguing, and states that he finds it rather difficult to suggest an accurate and suitable form of heading.
