In view of the increasing need of the Department of Education for a separate library, a committee of seven has been formed to secure the funds and books necessary to establish one. In the circular which this committee is sending out is stated that "It is essential to the larger views and thorough study of education which the Department seeks to give its students that it should be able to put within their reach the world's important literature on education and the books of reference that their work demands."
Accompanying the appeal is a statement of the work of the Department of Education since its foundation in 1891. One hundred students at Harvard and forty-nine Radcliffe students, a large proportion of whom are graduates, are now enrolled in the various courses in education. This large number makes need of a special library all the more urgent. The plan has the cordial approval of the Visiting Committee on Philosophy.
