Catalogue of Scientific Papers Published by the Royal Society
Whereas, There is a great want of a subject-index to the catalogue of the Scientific Papers published by the Royal Society, therefore
Resolved, That the President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science be requested to communicate with the President of the Royal Society to ascertain whether such subject-index is to be published, and if a negative reply be received, and the consent of the Royal Society be secured,
Resolved, That the President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science be requested to urge upon the several Vice Presidents of this Association their cooperation in obtaining the services of experts in each Section for the preparation of a subject-index, with the expectation of its publication by the Smithsonian Institution.
