The Fifth Commonwealth Education Conference in Canberra drew attention to the need for the training of personnel to produce books locally, and for information about existing training facilities to be made available through the Commonwealth Secretariat. Because the concept of formal training is comparatively new even in developed book industries, this document outlines what is involved in and what is meant by the various functions that need to be exercised in the preparation, production, publication, distribution and promotion of books. Its object is to develop a greater understanding of what facilities need to be offered, and what personnel are required in order that an indigenous book industry can be strengthened or established.
