Abstract: Examines the New methods and techniques for the communication of knowledge by Coblans and the Current documentation topics and their relevance to social science literature by Kyle. Sets out the causes for the crisis in documentation work. Suggests 'five additional problems for investigation viz. t) Will the Bernal and the Donker Duyvis Plans fail to stimulate new-comers into research-field? 2) Adequate coverage in international documentation of na scent micro thought of Asian and African origin. 3) Reconciliation of the requirements of the design of classification for all its purposes and of machinery for search. 4) Comparative evaluation of machinery for search and visual scanning when individualizing class numbers and chain procedure are used. 5) Design of machinery for copying selected entries economically from a catalogue designed for efficient visual scanning. Points out the problem of standardizing terminology in social sciences falls largely within the sphere of the respective linguistic groups instead of in the international plane.
