Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 2. 1967.
The Director of the National Library School (Mr. G. T. Alley) does not believe there is a need for a university librarianship course, in addition to the present school, which offers a one-year diploma course to graduates.
Mr. Alley said there were not enough people to run two schools and the cost of £25,000 did not Justify the effort.
The Minister of Education (the Hon. A. E. Kinsella) upheld this view, adding that a halt had been called to talks between Mr. Alley and Victoria University on a possible transfer of the school to University Control.
