Type:
Archival materials
Note:
This series consists of materials relating to the non-profit American Documentation Institute (ADI) and its predecessor organizations. In 1926, Science Service established a Documentation Division to explore means of disseminating scientific information by voice, print, and film, and it began experimenting with microphotographic processes and equipment (see "Plan for Film Record Prepared by Science Service," June 15, 1926, Box 436, Folder 12). In 1934, they established a Bibliofilm Service to microfilm technical material on demand and began a cooperative project with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) (see agreement in Box 172, Folder 13). ADI was incorporated in 1937 as a non-profit corporation with members nominated by several dozen scholarly and scientific groups; in 1941, ADI's Bibliofilm Service operations were transferred permanently to USDA. ADI also established an Oriental Science Literature Service to translate Japanese and Chinese scientific and medical literature and, during 1941-1942, published Far Eastern Science Bulletin. Series 18 contains correspondence of librarians, archivists, scientists, publishers, and government officials in the United States and other countries concerned about the problems created by the rapid expansion of scientific and technical literature.
