Compiled by Clarence J. West and Callie Hull

There exist many unpublished, or manuscript, bibliographies for scientific subjects which, if known and made available to investigators, would be effectively utilized. In view of this fact the Research Information Service, in coöperation with the Divisions of Science and Technology of the National Research Council, has undertaken to compile lists of manuscript bibliographies in the mathematical, physical, and biological sciences. A list for geology and geography has already been published as No. 27 in the Council's Reprint and Circular Series.1

The list presented for chemistry and chemical technology, although incomplete, should prove useful. It is hoped that it may also encourage those who possess unpublished bibliographies, as well as those who are in need of bibliographic lists, to coöperate with the Research Information Service by reporting their bibliographies and by inquiring as to the existence and availability of lists before undertaking independent compilation.

The fact that the information concerning each bibliography included in this list-period covered, method of entry and approximate completeness-is taken directly from the reports supplied to the Research Information Service, accounts for the incompleteness of the data in certain cases and for the evaluation of materials.

The Research Information Service is prepared to serve as a clearing house in connection with scientific and technological bibliographies. Those who prefer, however, may correspond directly with the compiler of any given bibliography and, unless otherwise indicated, may assume that the compilers listed have indicated willingness to have their material consulted or duplicated. Ordinarily a copy of any bibliography may be obtained for the actual cost of duplication.

The Research Information Service will welcome corrections or additions to this list and suggestions concerning the further development of a bibliographic exchange.

Dr. H. P. Little has kindly consented to the incorporation into the present list, of material of chemical value contained in his list.
