Public Affairs Information Service, in its eighth year, has followed its original aim of undertaking to furnish a ready index- to the best material obtainable on questions of vital public concern. In the fulfillment of that aim it has become a unique service, different alike from the technical and magazine indexes and from the commercial informational services. Its work is the discovery of new and unusual sources of information about public affairs and the assembling of the knowledge gained in such form as to make it immediately accessible to the inquirer.
Few changes of great moment are needed from one year to another in an index whose purpose is so plain; and this volume follows in its main outlines the scheme of its predecessors. The entries have been carefully examined for their intrinsic value as well as for their timeliness, and such changes as have been made are mainly in the matter of subject heading or form of entry. As a result of the selective process used in its compilation, Public Affairs Information Service in its weekly form is a useful aid to the small library which is building up its collection, and in its final form is a reference tool of value to a library of any size.
