Excerpt from Analytical and Classified Catalogue of the Library of the Parliament of Queensland

Eight years ago, in a Report which was laid before Parliament, I pointed out amongst other things the great practical utility which would result from classifying the books in the Library, and cataloguing them on some of the latest and best approved systems. The former of these undertakings (both of which were authorised in due course) filled up the two recesses which followed; and since its completion I have been busily engaged with the latter.

Of the importance of a good catalogue there can be no doubt. There is no matter, says an authority on this subject, connected with the administration of a public library, which can vie in point of importance with the character and condition of its catalogue. But, of the difficulties which surround its construction, no one but those taught by actual experience can have any conception It is with catalogues, says Professor Robinson, the librarian of one of the American universities, as with classi fying; the objections to any plan are so numerous and so forcible that nothing but an imperative demand will induce one to undertake it at all.
