Godfrey Oswald writes \"Dear Librarians
I am near the final completion of a major project, to update the
Info Connect List of LIS Records 1999.
This is a factual reference book (first published in 1997), of the
major records on libraries, information science and librarianship,
akin to the \"Guinness Book of Records\".
It includes such records as, the oldest university library in the
world,the most expensive library in the world, the largest public
library in Europe, the 100 largest and important libraries in the
world, the first CD-ROM database.
The new edition is to be called \"The Book of Library Records\"
and is to be made available in book printed and electronic version.
