ABSTRACT
This article reports that the library for members of the Institute of Logistics and Transport, which is located in London, England, will be close on June 7, 2000 for one month to allow essential housekeeping of the collection in anticipation of relocation and new arrangements in a new office in London. A library task force, chaired by John Hibbs, has been formed to ensure that in the future members will continue to receive, at least, the same level of services as has previously been offered by libraries in London and Corby, England. In addition, a working party set up jointly with the Roads and Road Transport History Conference will continue to make recommendations for the collection of older specialist journals. The new office, will be equipped with a members' reading room which will provide access to institute generated publications, key relevant periodicals and a selection of core titles in logistics and transport. Data access will be provided in the library catalog. The task force aims to balance the needs of those members who are able to visit the library in person with the needs of the much greater number who do not regularly travel to England but still require easy and effective access to information to assist them in their professional roles and studies.
