1.  The Delivery of Medical Information in the 1970s * 
Some of the effects of changes in medicine and in economic situations in general on the provision of medical information are discussed. These effects are correlated with conflicts between the demands of different classes of users of this information and with levels of service due to changes in the characteristics of people entering the field of medical librarianship.

21.  Mechanization of Library Procedures in the Medium-sized Medical Library: VIII. Suspension of Computer Catalog * 
A system for the substitution of a computer-printed book catalog for a card catalog was put to the test by making the former the sole means of locating material in the library, after four years of being used merely as an adjunct to the card catalog. It was found not suitable, and a new system is being devised in the light of the difficulties encountered. The reasons why the system broke down and the plans for the new one are described.

25.  A Philosophy of Continuing Education * 
Continuing education is important to the individual, to the library, and to society as a whole, and therefore each should attempt to foster continued learning and the questioning mind. Today, librarians are seeking “philosophies” for what they do because the changes in the world about them have denied them the comfort of the implicit assumptions about their work which librarians of earlier periods had. The professional association, like the medieval guilds, has a responsibility to its members to aid in their search for reality (“philosophy”) and specifically in their need for continuing education.
