It was established and has already begun its operation in Rome the National Center for Technical Information. Such information, even with heavy use of photographic reproduction, can be sent to interested parties who request it. The importance of this publication is truly remarkable, especially from abroad have received numerous expressions of praise and repeated requests that show how powerful this work is appreciated with the participation of all committees of the National Research Council. With the publication of Bibliography was also possible to combine the truly complete collection of all the magazines that are published in Italy, a collection that is not found in any of our libraries ... "(La Ricerca scientifica, year III , 2, n.9 -10 , November 1932).
