staff in universities in Edinburgh and Glasgow; with librarians in Edinburgh, Southampton, Newcastle and Southampton, and with researchers in London, Bath and Glasgow. The second phase was a postal questionnaire in July. and questionnaires were sent to the library and to the computer service in each listed institution (excluding individual colleges in Oxford and
Cambridge and the teaching hospitals and research institutions of the London University). Sixty-five
