The library was regarded by Kendrew as an essential part of the laboratory from the beginning and a librarian (Mrs M. Holmes) was in place from 1975. When the Library Committee was set up in 1976 he took the view (note of 16 November 1976) that the library belonged to the scientific operation of the laboratory and not to the administration, and, since it did not belong specifically to any one of the divisions, that it should come directly under the Director-General.
