Sir,
Per your iaforaatlea,  and that ef tae Chancellor and the Beard of
governors, I beg to submit the following Repert of'the work of the Library
Department fer the period April 1st, 1920 to March 31, 1922.      It has beea
prepared under instructions of the Library Coasiittee.
The last Repert submitted fer your consideration covered the University
Tsar, April 1, 1919 - Mareh 31, 1920       He Repert was prepared for the Uni-
versity rear 1920-21, for the reason that, for th® fourth time within seven
years,   the whole book collection had to b© moved during the suwser vaeatioa,
owing to the insertion of a large 3250 volume stack ia the Horth ^aaex, aad
the removal of 1200 volumes of lesser used book-aaterial to new locations ia
the lle&diag Boom.      No extra labor being available for  this work,  it had to
be done by th© two male members of the staff.      this long and laborious task,
together with the Annual Cheek of the Library, the increasing demands of the
Summer School, and other regular work, fully occupied the whole of Vacation.
The present Report is, therefore,  intended to cover the essential outlines of
the work of 1920-21, and, with somewhat rmr& of detail, that of the University
Year now concluded.
QROWS?    OF    LIBgtfX.
In the last Report the number of beeks in the eelleetien was given as
34,088.     More than 9000 beeks have been added in the twe-year interval, the
total being now over 43,000 velusses.       The actual growth Is as set   forth ia the fellewiag statements

MM Manitoba, Queens, Saskatchewan and Toronto,  in the order named, have all
exceeded the accessioas made during the past year by the Library of this
University, while, of the Western universities, Manitoba has trebled, aad
Saskatchewaa doubled, the number of volumes added ia the same period.
Though exact figures are act available, reports made to Library Cea-
fereaces ia different sections of the United States are conclusive of the
fact that American universities have likewise added much greater volume-
totals to their libraries during the past two years than was the ease in any
precediag period.    This, while partially due to the need of overtaking purchases of many European books impossible to procure because of coaditioas
due to the late war, aad to the eatire closing of the German and Austrian
book markets throughout its duratioa,  is due still more to the greatly increased iaterest  in all forms of education as national assets,  of which a new
realization of the part that books and libraries must play ia any orgaaized
scheme of eduoatioa is a geaeral aad striking symptom.
The estimated value of the University's collection, as at March 31st,
1922, exceeded #111,000.     Details are given in "Appendix 1" to this Report.
BOOK BUYIHS POLICY - FUBDAMBSTALS FIRST.
Ia the Report made two years ago occurs the statement:
"The Library Committee desires to place on record its appreciation
of the reeogaitioa, by your predecessor aad by yourself, aad by the
Board, of the necessity for the adoptioa of a policy of wise
liberality towards the boek-service department of the University,
aad for proviaioa of the fiaaacial means that have enabled the
Library, at thus early a stage ia its career, to achieve a pesitioa
of some distiactloa ... This policy must be followed, aad if possible
extended, for many years to come, if the Uaiversity is to offer to
scholars and students proper facilities for education and rssearch."
The results of a eoatiauaace of this policy during the period under
review in this Report have become more and more apparent.       Within its limits the Library is aa effieleat educational tool.       It
contains - as is to be expected ia view ef the fact that the collection it
but eight years eld - a smaller prepertlea ef bock* ef dubious value then
mast be the ease when a library is the growth ef many years.    It is believed
to include a far laxger prepertlea ef fuadameatal serials - leag rms ef Important periedieals, aad preeeedlags aad traasactleas ef learned societies -
than will be feuad la amy libraiy ea the ecatiaeat ef less than 80,000
volumes.     The effert ef these reepeasible for bee3te*seleetiea has been te
secure this type ef material as fuiekiy as limited appropriations permitted.
this has been deae, act aleae because ef the necessity fer these in any
library designed for study and research, but because with every year the
supply becomes relatively less, and in coasequeace the prices are every mouth
rising.     Many important sets which this Library has not yet acquired are today quoted by dealers at prices five or six tines greater than those at which
they were offered five or six years ago.
ffhila lack of funds has prevented the aecuisltiea of many sets, aad ef
individual books, which the Committee and the Librarian greatly desired, the
accessions made in the past two years must be a matter of eeagratalation te
all interested ia the welfare ef the University-     The more important of these
. are listed ia "Appendix 2" te this lepert.     with each Item is given brief
bibliographical data shewing the range of the set purchased, and the price.
This is sufficient evidence of the value of these works for purposes ef research or study* while the prie© paid was is s&sy instances greatly belew
current quotations, even at th© time of purchase,     within the present year
soza© of theae itisras were quoted l^ dealers at mora than double the price paid
by this Library less than two years ago. While its growth eaa be regarded with satisfaction, the Library is as
yet far from being adequate to the demands made upea it by Staff aad students.
There are 23 distiaet departmeats ia the University, aad.aearly 280 separate
courses of study offered.     la many ef these departmeats the literature is ef
eaexmeas range.      seme would still be iaadefnately represented if the total
beek~resources of th© Library were deleted to eae departaeat.    la ethers It is
impossible to do the work as it should be den©, for lack ef fundamental sets
te which reference is constantly required.     Borne ef these sets, particularly
ia the sciences, are quite costly, aad eaaaot be purchased from such apprtpria-
tions as the Board of Governors has yet bean able to make to the Library-    The
need of this type of book material is yearly becoming more marked with the
increase of graduate work
la the face of such conditions,  developing each year .in exact ratio to
the growth of the University, both in attendanco aad courses offered,  it will
be obvious that  the Committee and the Librarian are wholly unable to meet the
needs and demands of  tee Departments for what are acknowledged to be proper
claims en the Library as part of the necessary equipment ef the iastitutiea.
When commitments for ooatiauatioas,   serials, etc., are taken ©are of, an
average of less than #200.00 remains to be allotted each Department for its
book appropriation.     This faes carries its own eoaraeat, when need is eensldsred.
The deficiencies of the Library have, partially at least, been met by
the oourtesy of other and larger libraries.     The University is uader great
obligation to universities, government, eadewed, public and technical libraries for leans, often ef very valuable werks, for the use of faculty, and of students doing special work.   Among the libraries to which recogaitisa aad thaaks
are especially due should be meatieaed McSill, teroato, queens and Acadia Universities,  the Library of Parliameat, Ottawa, the Legislative Library, Victoria,
the Public Libraries, Toronto, Victoria aad Vancouver, ia Canada* aad, ia the
United States, the Library of Congress, Harvard, Tale, Columbia, Chicago,
Illinois, Minnesota, Miahigaa, Washiagtoa, irowa, Leland Stanford Jr. aad
California Universities, the John Crerar and Hewberry Libraries of Chicago, the
Statu Libraries of lew York, Washington, Oregon and California,  and the public
libraries of Seat bis and Portland.
The co-operation of the American libraries is the mere to be appreciated,
because of  tiie vexatious delays aad difficulties often imposed, 'by the United
States Customs regulations regarding returned books.     though all such Leans
are returned promptly by this Library,  aad every effort made to comply with
customs requirements, many cases have been reported ia which a representative
of the leaning library has had to make a trip to the customs office,  sad siga
declarations* before the returned book would be-delivered free of duty.      Ia
soma eases duty has had to be paid on thsir own books, and earrespeadenee entered into for a refund thereof.     These delays aad annoyaaces are apparently
ataeh greater at so.se points than others,  the customs practice and raqulreaeats
ssssiag to vary -at different places.      Because of these,  the Ohiverslty of
California library felt itself impelled to notify this Library that it eeuld ao
longer, except ia very exceptional cases, make further later-library loans.
liS3
A gratifying feature of the period under review is the rapid increase ia
the number of gifts ansae to the Library by governments, institutions, aad individuals.      Some of these are of great value.      Few, however, of the
personal donors are Canadians - fewer still British Columbians.     The time
has not yet arrived when those whose interest  in the University should be
most keen aad vital make any sign of that interest by presenting to the
Library books that will be of value to the institution In its work. Members
of the Board of Governors,  and those on the staff or student body,  are as
yet almost the only persons resident in the province to whom the Library is
indebted for gifts.
A list of the Jflore important donations for the University Year 1921-22
is included as "Appendix 3" to this report.      The most notable of those for
1920-21 were published ia the Calendar of that year.
In the last Report reference was made to the wholly inadequate facilities
for students desirous of reading in tae hours during which lectures are given.
the conditions of congestion set forth therein dealt with the University
when its student registration numbered 890.    Regrettable as these were at
that time, they are worse In the two years under present review, when the
registration was respectively 962 and 1011,  for it has not been possible to
increase the accommodation.      University authorities agree that the accommodation for readers should represent from 35 to 40 per cent of the total student
body-      The 102 chairs ia the reading room represent but 10$ of the present
year's registration - from one-third to one-fourth of the provisioa required.
2??en this statement does not fully set forth the conditions, for in
reality the floor space available is not more than is neoessary for fifty
students.      The reading tables are S feet by 3,  and six chairs are plaeed at each.   This gives a space te each reader of two feet la breadth, aad eighteen
iaches ia depth - the else ef a email drawing board.     Students ars'teuchlag
elbows vi^x their neighbors.     The aisles are se aarrew that it is with difficulty a person can pass dewa the reea.     Obviously these ceaditieas-
ocaversatioa acre eaiy thsa werkt and ealy by the under standing
of the Stadpat Body - te ifeieh the Library Staff is glad te make refereaee and
give recognition - caa serious study be carried ea at all during some period*
ef the day.
At various times during the past two sessioas the Librarian has counted
the studeats who la the tea minutes after the closing ef a lecture have tried
ia vain to secure a seat in the leading Beem,     Oa eae occasion 57 such
dents were counted, and several times the total has exceeded 40.       On
days this coadltloa has beea repeated two or three times.    As set forth ia the
last Report,  spare book shelves are still placed ea radiators aad used as
seats, aad from a dozen to a score ef studeats caa oftea be seen standing reams'
the magazine racks and elsewhere, for lack of seating acoemaedatioa they have
a right to expect in any properly equipped university.
These ceaditieas the Committee aad the Librarian deem it their duty
to duly set forth for the iufermatioa of the University authorities.        It
would seem te be Impossible to remedy the situatiea, se far as the present
Seadiag Reea is concerned.      It is notorious that the funds as yet at the disposal of the University preclude any hope ef enlargement of the ascoasaodatioa
fer readers ia the Arts Building.
SUMBSTED RMBim ROOM FOR APPLIBB SOIMQB
It is hoped, however, that arrangements may be made by which the Applied
Scleace studeats at least may secure some relief.     Practical work ia shop, laboratory or field takes up a greater proportloa of the time of these students than is the ease with these ia Arts aad Scieace.  At the beginning of
each term, a certaia proportloa of Applied Scieace studeats cease to the
Reading Reom, principally to eeasult technical aagaalaes te which they have
beea referred.  Many aever come a secead time, aad vary few are frequeat
visiters, fer the reasoa that they eaaaot secure seatiag aecemmedatiea.
The Committee aad the Librarian would therefore eemmead to the authorities the suggest that before aext sessioa an Applied Scieace leading leem
be established, if space caa be fouad in the Commercial Building er elsewhere.
To this room should regularly come those periodicals la which Faculty and
Studeats ia the College of ipplied Science are mere particularly interested.
Therein should be housed the books prescribed by the Applied Science Teaching
Staff for Required Readiag, and also a small working collectioa of refereaee
works ia the courses taught.  All should be under the supervisiea of an
attendant respensible to the Library for. the proper making ef leans, aad for
the recording of periodicals forwarded from the Main Library en receipt. The
Attendant might include ia her duties part of the steaegraphie work required
by the Faculty of ipplied Scieace, and the salary charge involved might be
divided pro rata betweea the Library aad the Faculty of Applied Scieace.
By establishiag such a Readiag Reom, - which would be cpea between
9.00 a.m. aad 5.00 p.m. - some allevlatioa of the conditions herein set forth
would be passible, aad readiag aad study facilities givea to mr@ than 200
studeats, ef whom practically aoas caa be accommodated ia the limited readiag
room space the Uaiversity caa at present offer.
USE OF THE LIBRARY
Within the two years under coasideratioa ia thes Report, the use of the 3JL
Library, as recerded by the leass made, has greatly iaereased.
The aumber of studeats who took out Readers' Cards shews an increase ef
about 10 per ceat ever those of the two preceding years.     The figures are*

la considering these figures, It is important to remember that the
of students who take out Readers' Oards represents but a part of the use
ef the Library.    Ia fact, it represeats ealy the wsupplementary,■ as distinguished from the "required" readiag.       The beeks absolutely necessary
for readiag courses, and for eeastaat reference throughout the session, are
at its beglaaiag wlthdrawa from the Stack Reom,  shelved aad grouped by themselves in the Readiag Room, aad labelled with the name ef the course as given
la the Calendar.- "History 4»»,"Philosophy S*\ "English 17",  "Economies 7",
etc.     Access to these prescribed beeks, that exceed 600 ia aumber during the
sessioa, is cpea to students at all times during which the Reading Reom is
open.
Ia universities with proper reading reom accommodation, these books fer
"required readiag" are kept ia a large special readiag reom, ia which the bulk
ef undergraduate study is done.     They are shelved ia stacks behind a barrier,
aad are sigaed fer by each student using them, the slip beiag retains! by the
attendant, sxd until the beek is returned after use, when it is returned te the
student, aad destroyed.   The lean slip thus constitutes, while ia possessloa
of the atteadaat, a defiaite liability agaiast the berrowiag studeat.    It is
easy, under this system, te record the use made by the studeat body ef the 1ft
leeks that form the great bulk ef undergraduate readiag - indeed, almost the
whole ef such readiag during the first two years.
It is impossible, under the ccaditioas aow prevailing, to furnish any
iaforaatioa as to the exteat of such "required readiag.rt     The statistics
given below, therefore, mast be considered ia the light of this fast.     They
represent only the supplementary readiag dene by the studeat body, the teaching
staff, and by readers outside of the iaetitutioa.

From the foregoing it will be seen that the total number of leans fer the
whole of 1921 exceeded by almost 40 per cent those of the previous year, while
the leans of the first three months of 1922 were mere than double those of
1920.
To all who desire that the fullest use possible should be made ef the
growing eeUeetlea ef becks owned by the University, it will be gratifying te
note the great increase therein by British Columbians act directly connected
with the iaetitutioa.  The aumber ef extra aural readers Increased from 105 ia
1920 t© 164 la 1921, and to 265 at the *s** close of the last University year. M
Many of these readers are teachers; there are a dezea or more
ministers, and nearly forty returned soldiers, while the remaiader are buei-
aess aad professional men who are learaiag to look to the Library for ia-
fermatiea ©a their particular problems, or courses of reading cr study

Aaalyziag the suppiemeatary readiag done by the studeats, It is apparent

thmxiik*   lo difficulties with regard to discipline occurred duriag the
Sessiea, except la mlaer matters, aad ia all cases due to thoughtlessness
rather thaa latent.
The Librarian and the Staff desire to place ea record their warm appre-
clatiea ef the oo-op .rati on of the Students ia the maiateaaace ef geed conditioai
in a leading Reem hopelessly inadequate, aad a Stack Reem ill adapted, fer its
purpose.     The Librarian desires ia particular te advise the University
authorities of the support givea by the Students' Oeuacil.   He atteaded two
meetings ef this body, stated eertaia difficulties that had developed, and ea
these, and other occasions, discussed relatloas between the studeats and the
Library with frankness,   lis presentations were at all times sympathetically
received, aad his suggest!eas adopted.     The approval aad authority of the
Students' Council was aa important factor ia the order observed* aad ia the
excellent aad geasral good understand lag prevatliag betweea the Library and the
Studeat body.
fails the feregolag statemeats as to the geaeral attitude of the
Studeat ledy, and Its conduct ia the Library Departmeat, caa be accepted as a
general condition, it should also be acted that those prevailing among Permit
holders for Stack Scorn Privileges leave eemethlng to be desired.    Owing to the
fact that many mere Permits are issued than there are tables available, two or
three studeats are often seea working at one table, aad semetimes four or five ia aa aisle. There ia tec mush conversation, but, whenever this is poiated
eat, the reply is usually that the discussion is oa the work being dene.
Such discussions, are helpful and necessary, but the place ia which they
should be carried ea is in Seminar reests.  These are among the facilities
the University has as yet beea unable to provide.
The Committee and Librarian, la deciding the policy to be pursued,
had three courses from which to cheese.  They could preserve ideal ceaditieas of order la the Stack Room, by permitting ao studeat study therein;
they could limit the studeats to the aocemmedatioa provided; er they could
reconcile themselves to a certain lack ef erder as unavoidable, ia the
geaeral interest of the work to be dene.  The first end secaad were equally
unjust to the studeats eatitled te Stack Reem privileges, while the third
was obviously unsatisfactory, aad ia addition had harmful possibilities. It
was felt, however, that this was the proper course te pursue under all the
circumstances.
Before a Permit is issued to a student, he is required te sign aa
applicatioa, aad promises to observe certain regalatieas thereia set forth.
While there has beea ao serious breach of any of these regulatieas, they have
not beea observed as they should or might.  It is the iateatiea of the
Librarian to "tighten up" these regalatioas duriag the present year, and make
cancellation ef Stack Room privileges the penalty for their aca-ebservaace.
The work ia this Department, with Miss «Tefferd ia charge, has beea
steadily prosecuted during the period covered by this Report.  All aew
accessions have been catalogued, and with fuller analytical cards than was
possible at the time of the last Report, for the reason that the Catalogue n
lepartmeat was, ia April 1922, relieved of the work of Book Orderiag.
The Library Catalogue is in four divisions,   (1) The i&ia Catalogue,
placed in the Reading loom for general reference,  and makiag the resources
of the Library available by Author, Title and Subject, with accessary
Analytical cards, to bring out the more Important sab~seeti©as ef laforaa-
tloa ccatalaed ia the volumes.     This new numbers 126,224 Cards.      (2) the
Author Catalegae     This is a working index, used principally by the Library
Staff, but much used also by Faculty.      It is located ia the Cataloguer's
office, aad is estimated at 85,660 cards.      (3) The Shelf List.     This is aa
arrangement ef cards, veluae by volume, la the same order as the bee** are
placed ea the shelves.     It is the record by which it is possible te cheek
the Library, take stock, aad aecertaia the missing beeks.     It eeataias
29,500 cards, aad is also kept la the office ef the Cataloguer.     The
fourth record is the Accession List.     This is likewise a eard-for-vcluaa
record, and eeataias the details as to the acquisition of every book in the
Library, giving, la the ease of purchased velwaes,  the date ef orderiag aad
receipt,  the source whence obtained, the price paid, the edition, date and
place ef pablicatiea,    aad ether business and blbliegraphical' details, aad,
la the case of gifts, the aame of the deaer aad ether essential facts.
The four combined catalogues are estimated to coataia 281,500 Cards,
aa increase of S2,S6Q since the last Report.   TEis means aa average increase
of over 100 cards per working day, and gives one criterion as to the work
deae ia this department.
Ia the last Report, it was stated that the elassifioatiea ef the
Library was complete, with the exceptica of Classics aad Relifiea.   the end
of the last University year saw the ccmpletioa ef the former ef these m
important sect leas, the classiflcatioa schedules in manuscript eeveriag
the same having beea Icaaed the Library by the Library of Congress.   They
were traascribed - a month's work - and classification undertaken aad
completed by Eiss Jefferd.
The manuscript schedule of "Religion" has Just been received.      It
also will be traascribed, and it is expected that duriag the eemlag summer
this sectloa will be finally classified aad catalogued, thus completing
this work for the whole book-sellectioa.
The thaaks of the Library are due te Dr Putnam, Librarian of Oea-
gress, fer his kindness la ieaaing for transcription, the maamscrlpts ef
Schedules of Classification act yet published.     Bad it act beea fer these
leaas, the sections ef Preach, German, Gtreek and Latia literatures, aad
other schedules la class **PH  (Language aad Literature) would as yet be ua-
erganised aad naoatalegaed.
As already stated, the Order and Catalogue departmeats were separated
at the beginning of the University year just closed,  the work of the former
beiag takea over by the Librarian,
Two thousand two hundred and oae orders for the Library were sent te
publishers or dealers duriag the year, the first beiag aumber 11731, and
the last 13982.      la all cases except "Oeatiauatleas and Serials''
(periodicals to the sabscriptioa of which the Library is committed, that
leag sets may be kept up to date)    leqaisitioas were received from the Head
of the Department against the appropriatioa of which the cost is te be
charged.       Ia addltlea, there were nearly twe hundred orders placed ea
account of members'Of the Teaching Staff, or of studeats.       lavoices were 11
checked, ©a receipt of the books, against the duplicate orders retained in
the order file, and the account? submitted to the Coiaaittee monthly for
approval, before being forwarded to the Bursar for payment.    Careful record
is'kept of all book-cost items, each being charged against  the total amount
'..allotted by the Committee to the Department.
/
Ia"Appendix 4a to this Report will be found a statement of th© amount
spent each mouth for the past two years under this head.
The stimates of each of th© two years under review were prepared by
the Librarian and carefully considered by the Committee.
In former years,, these estimates were based on the reasoaable needs
of the Library, viewed in relation to what was known of the general fiaaasial
resources of tae University.      The amounts the Board of aovemors was able
to appropriate were in all oases but a proportion of those requested, and
the Committee was therefore confronted wita the necessity of cutting the
Departmental appropriations,   some times to a mere fraction of those stated
to be necessary.      In view of the annual repetition of these eirewastances,
the Estimates for 13Zl~2;i were designedly placed at about th© amount actually
granted    the preceding year.
University authorities generally agree that a raiaimum of 100 volumes
per student should be th© standard for a library designed for undergraduate
use alone.      On tnis basis, this Library should exceed 100,000 volumes -
more than double its present total.      She requirements of graduate wori will
make very substantial additions necessary to this volume total.
The amounts appropriated to the Department, exclusive of salaries,
and the expenditures made -under their authority, are set forth In separate
schedules taat appear as "Appendix 4:< to this Repert. 22

The steady growth of the Library has made iacreasingly difficult the
problem of shelving accomodation.      This problem has become acute within
the past year, and has taxed the Ingenuity of the Library Staff to meet.
I'm expedients and devices with which the situation has hitherto been met
are well nigh exhausted.    So far as ean be foreseen at the present time,
the year 1922-23 will see the end of the present possible resources of
accommodation,  If the University is still at the temporary Fairview sit©..
Three years ago, the growth of the Library necessitated the erection
of the lorth Annex to the Stack loom.    It is 42 by 'UB feet in also,  and was
designed to accommodate 10,000 or 11,000 volumes - the expected growth ©f
about  two years.    It was then confidently expected that, by the tiise the
Annex \?as full,   the University would have moved to Point &rey.      In order
to minimize to the utmost expenditures on the temporary site,  the building
was made large enoaga to meet shelving needs for only a two-year period.
The Library outgrew this increased accommodation more than a year
ago.      The Board could provide no funds for its enlargement.    Tha continued
growth of the Library was therefore provided for by the installation of
stacks representing q/talume-acoommouatien of about 4500.      Thie was In two
stacks,   the larger against the outer wall of the Arts Building, ia the main
aisle of the Annex, with a shelving capacity of about 3,300 volumes, and &
second, with a capacity of 1,200 volumes, at the east end of the Beading
Room.      To this last named stack was removed all the Canadian Sessional
Papers, and some other material not frequently consulted.      The larger stack,
being inserted in the middle of the system, and the removal of these 1,200
volumes,  necessitated the moving of all books forward or back,  that they 23
should continue ia their proper relative position.   lo funds beiag available
for the securing of extra labor,  this work had to be done by Mr Haweis and
the Librarian.      It occupied several weeks of the guaaer vacation.
The relief given by these additional stacks has been absorbed by the
Library's growth.      Plans can be made by which, though at much inconvenience,
the growth of the present year can be provided for, but the condition of
congestion has already reached a really serious stage,  ana the Committee aad
Librarian deem it their duty to officially report the situation to the
authorities-
The time lest in book-delivery, because of physical conditions with
which the Staff has to contend throu^aout every hour of the working- day,
amounts to many hours a wesk.      In the large eolleotion of the John Crerar Library,
Chicago,  the average time for delivering a book, from the time an application
slip is handed in at the loan desk,  is a little over two minutes.      ia this
Library it probably averages five times as long.      The application is put on
the elevator, the Stack Room attendant has to be rung for, and perhaps called
from other duties which he cannot at  the moment leave,  and the 100 lb. elevator
has to be pulled town - sometiises both up aad down.      If the book is shelved
out of hand-reach, a step-ladder has to be brought from another part of the
Stack Room ia order to get the book required.    It is then carried to the
elevator, which has to be pulled up to the Beading Room> when the book is delivered,  and the loan charged.
The necessity of a Page or Call-boy to do this and other mechanical
work was set forth ia the last Report  submitted.    It is uneconomical to take
the time of trained members of a Library staff to do work that can be done
as well by an intelligent boy.      Whenever finances permit,  this addition to
the Library Staff should be made. A small room leading from th© Reading Room was duriag the past year
assigned the Library.    This was shelved,  and herein are kept the British
sessional papers, arranged by sizes in serial order,  and also the current
volumes of periodicals received.      This increased accommodation has solved,
for the time being, the question of magazine storage space,  and is greatly
appreciated by the leading Room superintendent-
The Serial list of the Library now numbers 539,   soae having as many
as six volumes a year.      It is obvious that to properly take care of so
many periodicals,  considerable floor and shelving spaot? is required.      The
Case la reality calls for a separate Periodical Readiag Boom, as Is provided
la aany universities and almost all public libraries.      This is of course
impossible at the present time,  but the staff is thankful for the improvement
of conditions the Store Room is able to afford.
kMssm
Daring th© past  two years, the Library has been able to make a beginning on the problem of binding unb .uad books and periodicals.    Appropriations amounting in all to #7500. have been granted for this purpose,  and as
a result 2,825 books and periodicals have seen bound, exclusive of those,
for whidh no ohaige has "bmn made,   that have been bound by the King's
Printer.      The average cost per volume works ou; at £2.57.
Careful  specifications were drawn up,  and .faot^fct ons thereon inirited
from four firms,      The work was awarded to 3. ,%. .ioadde, Ltd,, Vancouver, The
difficulty of .securing material, due to  the late war,   seriously delayed
deliveries throu^out all 1920, but this improved in 1921, and for the last
aiEe mouths ao oemplaiats can be made on this account.     At the end of 1921, owing to the decrease in the cost of strawboard, buckram and_leather,   (the
three material items most largely entering into binding costs)sasw quotatioas
were asked from three competing fir em, G.A.Roedde Ltd. again securing the wctk.

•The binders are now under ccatract   to return all work within thirty

The   standard blading adopted by the Library is of -'Library buckram,'■'
wita leather labels, with the monogram of the University on the binder's
title,  and its coat of arms at the side of the book.    The volume is reinforced at the hinge, and its appearance is attractive, while the work Is sub-
staatlal and durable.
4 summary of the expenditures made for Binding will be found la the
statement contained in "Appendix 4."
Shortly after the organisation of the University, arrangements were
fiiade with the Provincial iiovernmeat,  by which the King's Printer was to do    "
a proportion of the binding required oy the Library.    The re-orgaaizatioa
of the government Departmeats,   since that time, required tnat all work done 26
by the King's Printer should be charged against a definite appropriation
passed by the Legislature.    There beiag no such appropriation against which
work for this Librery could be charged,  difficulties arose-    The work in the
ling's Printer's hands was greatly delayed because of correspondence*  In
addition to the - perhaps inevitable - delays caused by the priority given to
the work required by Soverameat Departments.    As a result  some books of this
Library have been ia the King's Printer's hands for more than three years,
aad a© representations made by anyone connected with the University seemed
sufficient to have the work greatly expedited.
Ia October,  1921, aa account for |25347.§0f the cost of binding 451
volumes ia a period of about two years, was by the icing's Printer forwarded
to the Library for paysseat.     This represented aa average cost per volunae of
$5.20, as against an average of #2.67 for the binding done by the Library at
its own cost.      After making due allowance for the superior quality of the
work,  in the opinion of the Librarian the amount charged was too high..
especially when it is remembered that a government department Has not to
consider rent, profit and other items that eater into the business of a commercial firm.
After correspondence and a personal interview, however,  this claim was
not pressed, but notification has been received that, unless there is a legislative appropriation for the purpose, no further binding can be dene by the
King's Printer for the Library.
The ling's Printer has therefore been requested to return to the
Library all unbound University Library books on hand. Unless some    re
arrangement can be reached, the University mast henceforth look forward to
bearing the whole cost of its biadlag.
The contribution to this cost made duriag the past five years by the a
arraagemeat for that time la force was ef the utmost value to the Institution.
It is true that the delays aad postpj»aemeats ef beeks that did act arrive for
months - sometimes years - after they were expected, was a cause of much
annoyance to'members of the Teaehiag Staff requiring these for their work. But
the beeks, when received, were found te be bound ia the best style ef the
binders' art.     Is werklsg library could desire better epeeimeas ®f modern
bladiag than the set - 240 volumes - of the Aaaales de Chimie et de Physique,
or th© Histoire de I'Art, and other works beuad by the Stag's Printer.     The
fermer set represents a biadlag cost of $1440. - ia itself a actable deaatiea
to the Library.     the ealy regret is that the fnadfcf the Library will act
permit the continuations ef these aad other series to be bemd la as beautiful and costly a fashion as the sets thus far completed.
iMBfck, saga. m.^mssmm. $mm
To meet the biadlag requirements of the Library, a minimum annual
appropriation of #4250. is required.    Of the nearly 550 periodical aad serial
publications regularly received, 500 are ef sufficient value to warrant their
'permanent preservation.     The ©aly way by which this caa be deae with say
satisfaction Is to bind the parts into a book, thus removing the risk of mis-
layiag or losing of parts, aad the delay and annoyance of unwrapping, collating
aad re-wrappiag the parcels iato which volumes of unbound periodicals are made
while awaiting biadlag.     -la spite ef requests aad warnings, consultaats are
sometimes careless: an index, title-page or part is lest, and the volume thus
rendered imperfect.     The Library is eoafreated with the alternatives ef
bladiag imperfect volumes, cr of getting indexes, or whole parts, reproduced
by photography (at a cost that la seme cases will exceed aa aaattal subserip-
tioa), fer the reasca that the sectioas missing cannot aew be prccured anywhere. The SOO publications that should be bound vary in number of volumes a
year from one to six.     The average would be & little over two, which means
the bladiag of 1100 or 1S00 volumes a year.     The average price, in buckram,
will be about $8.00 per volam®.     The Library's annual periodical bladiag bill
caa thus be estimated at #3500.
The sua of #750. a year is' a minimum fer bladiag separate becks received
ia paper covers.     This will represent only 850 beeks, at about #2.00 a velwse
fer blading cost.     When it is remembered that'most of the Preach and Spaaleii
becks received by the Library are published la paper covers, this estimate
would seem te be moderate.
The Library's total annual biadlag requirement a, at the present rate ef
growth, caa therefore be estimated at #4250.     There must alao be considered,-
howerer, the arrearages for the years ia which, though the Library was smaller,
it had ao biadlag appropriation.    An additional #1000    a year will be required,
for aa estimated period ef five years, to make up for this leeway.
_Mi33J@a_.JOOIS_i
A complete inventory was taken of the Library immediately after the close
ef the Spring Term In both 1920 and 1921,      It is a matter of regrat that there
must be reported a considerable increase of losses.    In earlier years these were
small.    Ia 1919 they amsuated to 55 volumes.    Ia H20 th® check showed 101
volumes missing, while the number last year was 166.   Twenty-four of these books
were replaced before the opening of the University last September. The net less
'at that time thus amounted to about #330.G©
Practically all these missing books are "unauthorized leans," - beeks
that hare been taken from Reserved Shelves in the leadiag seem, or from the stacks, without registering the leaa.    Ia the former case, the less is eftta
apparent the same day* fer studeats aeediag to consult the beck la their work
at once make eaquiry for it at the Lean Desk-     Usually the ©ffeader is a
studeat whe has tried several times to get the beck, only te fiad it ia use.
It is available, he may have to attend a lecture, aad.feariag it may be again ia
use when next he gees to the leading Room, takes it with Mm to his class.   This
form of unauthorized leaa it is impossible to prevent ia a Readiag Reom where
every studeat has epea access to Reserved Shelves, and where almost every one
comes into the room with several books ©f his own.    Often the aaacyaace caused by
this offence lasts ©aly a day Or two, the student smuggling ia the book with the
same ease as he tcek it out, and replacing it ©a the shelves, but sometimes aa
unscrupulous student will keep tho book out of use for weeks, or altogether.
A certain proportion of the books taken from the Stack loom without leave
are surreptitiously returned.     At the last cheek several were oa the shelves
that had beea missing two or three years.
these unauthorized borrowings, or actual thefts, ef books belonging te
the Library were ameag the matters discussed by the Librarian with the Studeat'e
Council ia February of this year.    A special committee of the Council was
appelated to deal with the matter, and a letter setting forth the facts, aad
appealing to th© sease of honesty of the  students t© prevent this appareatly
growing practice, was seat to every student ia the University at his or her
personal address.    It is hoped that as a result there will be a lesseaiag ef
losses at the inventory now Impending.

by comparisoa with that ewaed by the Legislative Library, and libraries ia
fashiagtcn, Oregon aad loatana,  it is still of sufficient importaaee to entitle
it to a place la a bibliography of the subject.      Ita production was possible ealy by eo-operatioa.   The work, exceeding 800 pages, is admittedly
ia Its field, and it is a matter ef seme pride te the Library Staff that they
had seme, share la aa enterprise se successful aad valuable.
Aaether undertaking, ef somewhat similar kind, has just beea completed,
so far as this Library's part Is ceaeeraed.   Under the auspices ef the Library
of Mcilll University, a Ualoa List ef all the Traasaetleae aad Preeeedlafe ef
Learned aad Technical Societies, Scientific Periodicals, aad similar material,
ia the possession of the mere important O&aadlan University aad public libraries,
is to be published.    Th® list, with accessary bibliographical data, of these
ia this Library, was a few weeks age forwarded to Meat real.   The whole of this
work was deao by Miss Jefferd, and is her own tine.     When published, this
Union List will be of the utmost  service in securing for research studeats
iater-library leans of reference material accessary la the prosecution ©f their
work
The Library has also completed its share in a third bibliographical
undertaking.    At the Spotoae Conference of the P.I.L.a., a ocjBiittee was appelated to prepare, and publish ia print, aad in type for the blind, a union
catalogue of all books in libraries aad institutions throughout the lerth-
Westarn states and British Columbia available for blind readers.   The Librarian
was made responsible for those ia British Columbia, aad has forwarded cards
representing thee© to the chairman of the eemmlttee at Seattle.   The catalogue
will be published ia a to weeks, aad should prove a beea t© the 900 blind
people in the territory covered by the libraries aad iastitutioas represented.
In 1920,  the Library Ciamittee,  then under the chairmanship Of Dr B, 1.
Archibald, thought it well t© have a survey made of the whole operation of the Library, with the view of aseertaiaiag the measure ef service it was giving
the University, aad whether its policies aad methods were sound aad efficient.
pr f. s. Heary, librarian ef the university ef wasbiagtoa, aad director ef
the Library School ia that iaetitutioa, was asked to undertake this work, end
did so in visits made ia June aad August.   His Report Is dated September 13th,
1920.       Though copies were forwarded to the President at the time ef it* re-
oeipt, it Is included herein (Appendix i), as beiag aa important part ef the
record fer the ported under review.   The very satisfactory tharaeter ef talc
Report of Survey will be a matter of gratlfie&tloa to the Uaiversity aatherltie
as it is to the Committee, and to the Librarian and Staff.
LIBRARY    QQBP8SS8088
Since the last Report,  the Librarian atteaded the annual Conferences ef
the Pacific forth Vest Library Associations, held la Portland In 1920, aad
Spokane in 1921.       Be also atteaded the Conferences of the British Columbia
Library Asseciatioa,  that of 1920 being held in Haaaimo, aad ©f last year la
the Assembly Hall of the Uaiversity.   81 as Jefferd also attendee! the Portland
aad Saaaimo Conferences, and the whola staff thet held ia Vancouver.
The Librarian was alao honored with aa Invitation to give one of the
principal addresses at aa evening open session of th© .American Library Aese-
Ciatioa's Ooafereae®, held at Colorado Springs ia 1920,  at which 900 librarian
were present.
In both the years considered in this Report, the Librarian has beea eae
ef the invited lecturers at the University of Washington Library School.      la
the satsraa of 1920, while in Toroato, he lectured twice to the Library School
of the Education Department of Oatario. Financial assistance by way of grant was givea by fee Beard of deveraers,
oa recommendation of the President, towards defraying the expense incurred ia
attending the Ooafereaces mentioned - fer this the benefited members ef the
Staff desire to express their
The Library Staff consists of the following*
Jean Aldingtons Actioa Librarlah.   Seaeral SupervlsieB.
Accounts.   Order lepartmeat.   Biadlag.
Derethy Jeffords Classification, CataLegulag.
Lionel Hawelsj Beemmeats 6 Pamphlets, Access!oas, Call

Violet Andersonj Stenographer.
The Library Survey Report pointed out that this- staff of five is
insufficient for the beck-service needs of the University, particularly ia
view of the  serious disabilities under which it at all times labours because
ef premises altogether uasnlted to Library work.    The largely increased use
ef the Library gives additional weight to the representation® made ia Br
Eeary's Repert.     The committee &ad Librarian earnestly hope that, by the
beglaalag of she Autumn Session- at latest, it will be possible for the loard
to give the Staff at least the relief represented by the engagement of a Call
Boy.
The salaries paid the Staff are coasiderably below those paid to perscas
doing similar work la other institutions     Beprasentatioas have beea made te
the President oa this matter by the Chairman of the Committee, and it ia hoped that favorable ccaslderatioa will be givea these eases.
The Librarian is glad to repert that the Staff has givea good service
throughout the two years under review.    Its members take a real Interest ia
their work, and are contributing te the sueeeeef ef the Uaiversity as a whole
by doing as well as possible the work ef their ewa Department.
Br 1. S. Archibald, who for two years had given valuable aad appreciated service to the Uaiversity as Chairman of the Library Oeawittee, retired
ia the autamn of 1920, and was succeeded by Dr U. 0. Sedgwick, who has givea
considerable time to, aad taken much iaterest ia,  the work of the Library.
The Committee was reappointed ea bloc by the President last October.     Its
personal Is as follows:
Dr 0. 0. Sedgwick Chairmen
Dr T. H. Boggs.
Prof, filfrid Sadler.
Dr S. J. Schofield.
Jeha Rldiaftoa Secretary.
The Senate,  seme years ago, appelated a Committee to keep la general
touch with Library affairs.    Its members twice met the Faculty Committee by
arrangement, cad iafermatiba requested for the Senate was then givea. Because
ef the iaterest taken by these geatlemea,  they were asked to sit with the
Faculty Cojtsaittee at .its ordiaary monthly meetings, and Mr I. C. Shaw aad
Dr Douglas ttclatesh both gave valuable service to the Committee, and the former
still attends all meetings consistent with his other numerous eagagemeats.
The final paragraph af the Repert for 1919 states: it
"The Committee aad the Library Staff wish to make cwledge-
meat of the ce-eperatioa of the Presideat and the Board in the
work of the Department duriag the year.    To these, the Acting
Librarian desires to add his owa sense of ebligatloa to the
Presideat, whose accessibility, courtesy aad counsel are greatly
appreciated, aad have beea of great value."
The interval since fee last Report has deepened this sease ef depart-
aad personal appreeiatiea.   inch that the Department desired to do
teuM act be dome, because of ceaditieas impossible fer either Beard ef
aeveracrs er Presideat to everceme, but at all times the Committee and the
Librarian have felt assured of the active sympathy and co-operation of the
authorities with the work ef the Library.   They realize that, wltaia the
limits ef their resources, the President and the Board are doing their utmost
to support ttie Library as aa esseatial breach of th© work of the University.
'    All of which ia respectfully submitted.
Act lag Librarian.

Dear Fellow Students,—
A serious condition has come to the knowledge of the Students' Council in connection with the unauthorized
borrowing of books and periodicals from the Library.
Though the Library regulations prohibit the taking of any Periodicals from the Reading Room, a number of
these have disappeared.    Several of these losses  include even the leather covers in which the magazines are kept.
From time to time, particularly nearing examinations, Reserved Books disappear from their special shelves in
the Reading Room without the knowledge or permission of Miss Woodworth. The injustice of this practice to
other students in the Courses affected is obvious.
Unauthorized borrowings of books stored in the Stack Room are sometimes taking place. Practically the
whole of the Stack Room collection is available for reference and study, and there is therefore no necessity for
taking books without registering the  loan.
Mr. Ridington reported to the Council that last year the losses to the Library totalled 87 volumes, and
represented a value of about $350.00. No charge has yet been levied against Caution Money to compensate for
this serious loss. ..While the losses for the present university year cannot be known until the Library is checked,
after the dispersal of the Student Body at the close of the present Session, there is evidence to show that last
year's loss will be considerably exceeded.
In the case of the Periodicals to-day missing, the Library will be confronted with the alternative of binding
imperfect volumes, or of procuring the missing parts at a great deal of trouble and expense. It is probable that
the students of next and following years will thus be laid under a permanent disability, so far as the reference
material in these defective volumes is concerned.
The Students' Council is desirous of co-operating in every way with the Library Department to prevent or
minimise these losses. The Council believes that only a very small proportion of the Student Body is responsible
for the conditions brought to its attention, and that, even in the case of the offenders, the practice is due more
to thoughtlessness or carelessness than to deliberate intent.
The Council would, in the strongest possible way, urge upon every student the necessity of cultivating a habit
cf responsibility with regard to Library Loans. It asks every student to see that all books borrowed are properly
checked at the Loan Desk- It asks that Library books on loan be handled with at least as much care as they
would receive if they were the student's personal property. The Council also asks any student possessing knowledge of the whereabouts of missing books or periodicals to have these delivered at the Loan Desk as quickly as
possible, so that they may be available for general student use. It appeals to the good sense and the sense of
honesty of all students   to "play the game" with the Library, as it is doing in other aspects of university life.
It relies on YOUR personal sympathy and practical co-operation in the effort to better the conditions set
forth in this circular letter.
Yours  very  truly,
FAUL   N.   WHITLEY,   President.

September 13th, 1920.
ilr,
Ia eeapllaaee with your request of May 23th, 1320, I heped to
iaspectioa aad repert of the eeadltiea aad maaagemeat ef your University Library
while making the survey of the Vancouver Public Library.    Owing, however, to the.
absence of Presideat. Xliaok frem your city at that time, it was tbftught beet te
delay the cempletloa of the work until such time as it would be possible for the
Presideat to be at the University.
'However, while is your city in June, I made a partial inspection ef your
library, and requested from the acting librarian, Mr lldAagtoa, a series ef facts
that furnished a basis for some ealculatioas, and gave me much aid ea my return
in August la finishing the undertaking assigned to me.
Ia making the final iaspectioa preparatory to a.repert 1 began with the
records ef the business side of the library, which inslade the Order, ^ooessloa,
®®d Receipt records, showiag the busiaess methods employed.     I am glad te be able
te report that I found all these three records beiag well kept, la excelleat
condition la every way, making it possible for any one who might have eeeaslea
to do s© to go into the records office and secure 'all iafermatioa that any cue
should expect to fiad frem these records.     A stranger ml0&t pick v^ the business at any time aad proceed with it without break in its continuity.     That is
the final test of any busiaess record.      I offered but ©na suggestion to Mr
lidlagton for their improvement, and that was not a matter of itrrprovlag the
record, but of facilitating the book orders by having the professors fill cut a form-card la requesting the orderiag ef a beck.     It merely requires that the
ptefesser give all the bibllegraphie Information ia his peesesslta, thus
easier aad quicker the busiaess traasactlea.
In ceamectioa with me purehaae ef beeks I inquired aa te the chief
through whom the purchases are made.    Ia such purcliftses as yea are ajfefti
agent is quite aa impertaat element toward cuseesa, fer both the honesty aad the
inteillgeaeo ef the agent are vital.    I fensd that both the American aad British
agents through whom yea are dealing are ameag the best kaewa aad most reliable te
be fouad anywhere, mea whose word for both the price aad bibllegraphie iaferme/-
tloa is absolutely dependable.
I wish new to pass to your bihllegrapaie records.     The Oatalog, the m©s1
impertaat bibllegraphie record ia any library, I found te be excellently doae,
se far as it is now beiag esrrled, and that your cataleger is usiag the Library
ef Congress Cards, which greatly facilitates the work, aad ia additiea gives
much fuller bibllegraphie detail than is usually pessiblc fer a cataleger te secure la libraries act equipped with a large staff ef workers and a very large
collection of bibllegraphie tools, nellher ef which the medium fixed library sea
afford.    When I say the eatalegiag is "good as far as It gees," X mean saly that
If you had a larger staff, er fewer backs thaa yen are new bwiag, year eatsr-
ieger cauM take time te bring cut ia the ©ataleg mere detail ef the ecateats
ef your beeks, thus making much lafermatioa readily accessible which new is act
so, because ef this lack ef time     la short, yen need to have made mere saalyti-
cals te aid studeats aad professors ia flading msre readily fuller iafermatiea.
This can be dene only by a larger e&balegiag ferce.   Miss Jefferd is dslag ell
that any eae cataleger caa do.
The Shelf List Record, which records the bocks ia the erder ef their
position oa the shelves, or in classes, and forms a classed catalog, Is well i. This Is the cae record upoa which the Librarian is depeadaat at all
times fer aa taveatery ef the Library's pcssessioas. Without it ao inventory is
possible.
The Receipt record fer periodicals aad the bladiag records are mere than
ordinarily well kept, la both aeataess aad accuracy. This work, as I recall, is
dene by the Acting Librarian himself.  It is a considerable amount of detail
werk fer cae who Is responsible for the admiai strati oa of the library, but I am
sure It Is well that the Librarian should keep ia close touch *4th seme phase of
the werk.  He can aad should do such werk te the limit ef his time, se as act te
neglect impertaat admiaistratlca problems.
The LeMlag reeerds aad the purely statistical records, by which yen may
frem time te time take note ef year growth aad service, aad knew year «pgadltlea
at any givea time, are well kept, aad it seams te me that all essential records
are beiag kept.
After examlaiag with seme care all the werk beiag done, aad all the reeerd
kept, I want te compliment yen ea me fact that all you are doing is being well
deae, so with whatever change of staff, increase ef staff, er lacrcase ef
accession which mgy come, you will never be under the necessity of undoing or
redoing the werk that is so far deae. Such a statement is true of but few large
libraries. Many ef them have, as they grew te large prepertleas, found it
to undo, aad de ever, seme large pieces ef detailed work.  This will
much te yen ia the future.
la gelag every year entire celleetiea, I was impressed with Its exeelleaee
aad fundamental character to date.  Year erlgla is so reseat aad your possibilities' so apparent that yen knew frem the beginning that yen were te become aa
impertaat Uaiversity, and all mis ass helped you ia your beck *»leotion, which
is, ef course, the"'previase aad duty ef your entire faculty, and act of the
\N Hbrarism elsas.     With this foresight, gad the stimulus arising therefrom,
you have beugHt the fundamentals first, leaviag the little items aad miner
details te be taken eare ef later, uatii new I am sure ycu have a larger
oentage ef expensive sets, leag rams ef periodicals, preseediags aad transact leas ef learned societies then will be found in any other library with se few
years grewth.
It is well ycu have secured these foundations, for at the tim* whea
these were published the edit leas were small, as the anmber ef lastltutloas
wanting them was small.    But within the last fssr years small lastitutloas have
beserne large tats, new aad heavily endowed, lastltutloas have multiplied, aad all
have ceme late the m&rkst fer such material.     The demand grows larger, and the
s^ply, being fixed, grows relatively smaller with great rapidity.     Prices ere
increasing rapidly, aad the time has already come when it is the merest chance
that many ef these Items eaa be had at all at any price.     Let me   therefore
congratulate ycu upea the wisdom yen have exhibited ia the beginning.
Xa the last phase ef this repert I want to offer ycu seme mesas ef
the wmm cf year etaJfif» aad te offer seme suggestions that may be
of year eeaslderatloa whea circumstances will permit.
Per the past few years I have cellected statistical lafermatioa frem
14 ef the l**§er state salver titles ef the United States, until I think I have
enough te warrant seme comparison that gives a fairly accurate measure ef staff
service.      Upea the whole the slse cf aa adequate staff is determiaed meat largely
upea two fasts ia the growth ef the library*
1.   the lumber ef volumes added per year
8.   the mmber ef per seas served,
all library werk is either bibllegraphie organisation determiaeA by the
ef   beeks   added,    or   personal    service   rendered   by   the   staff   te studeats aad faculty* le», to the patrons ef the library. Sete the fellewiag temparisea ef the Uaiversity of British Columbia with the average of
feurteea universities ia the United States*
Average ef 14 U.S.
State Uaiv. 11889     8482 25 807 270
UMv, efB.O. 4181      1880 4 1848
The abeve table shews the fellewiag facts, If we may at all be guided by
1. That your staff is one-sixth as large =
2. That the velwses added are approximately    ae-third.
8.   That registratioa is approximately Oae-fourth
4.   That volumes added per staff members is twice the average,
er 100 per seat Increase.
'5.   That registratioa per staff member is 22 per seat greater
thaa the average..
All this suggests that ycu should odd from two te three persons te your
staff.   Yen have already added eae persea.     I would suggest that yen add,
met another trained librarian at tale time, but eae full time persea te de
the mechanical werk, tlms. relieving your better-paid people frem the sea-
mechaaleal werk.   That is, eae persea who will shelve daily er eftemer the
beeks that have seem used duriag the day, and do all label pasting and leaf
euttiag ea beeks that remala uncut.     Or It may be found that two per seas,
half time, will werk te better advantage thaa aa® full time.   My ewa
leads me to eeadude that a boy can better to the page weft
(shelving) as it requires mere hard physical labor thaa a girl should de,
aad that a girl will do better the labeling, aad leaf-cutting, as she is
mere skilful with her fingers, and mere wililag to werk at what seems petty detail.
Beth ef these types ef werk must be deae ©very day, aad it is
vagaat to use well paid help ia such miner service.
Ia measuring the staff service ef your staff ycu mast also take late
account the bensiag ef your library la the rooms acw available for library
purpeses.     The satire aad lecatlea ef your rooms increase the difficulties ef
service te a ceaslderable degree. I should guess as much as would be eem-
peasated for by th© addition of cae full time traiaed member, ia addition te
the untrained help already suggested.
I think I have aethlag further to add la ssmmarlslag my investigations
aad Impressions ef your library, bus wish to dese the fermal report by
offering oae suggestion that may not necessarily belong ia.the repert.   low-
ever,  I veature it.      It is that Mr Bldiagtoa's werk ia the library, aad his
standing aad reputation In the American Library Association, would wholly
Justify you ia offering him the title aad salary of librarian rather thaa
that of acting librarian.     He is mash mere competent thaa meet mea filling
like positions.     His native ability aad wide aad varied experience mere thaa
compensate fer added professieaal training.    He has made himself familiar,
moreover, with the methods sad practices ef the best libraries.
Let me thank you meet sincerely for the hener conferred ia asking me
te undertake what has proved te be a pleasant task.
lespectfully,
Librarian.
