Gratifying as it is to see to how great an extent the library is being used by the students this year in comparison with previous years, yet the disadvantages of a large number of men wanting the same books have not yet been done away with. It ought, therefore, to be in the mind of every man who uses the library, that he is not the only person in existence who is likely to want any particular book. There are very few men who are so thoroughly self-engrossed that they forget this fact; but we have heard of some, we regret to say, who, ensconcing themselves behind a huge pile of reserved books and settling down for an afternoon's work, are audacious enough to put on an air of offended privilege if any one asks them if he can be allowed to look at one of the books; and even more, have the unscrupulousness to say that the books are all in use. Such a dog-in-the-manager style of selfishness is really more than the patience of the average man can stand.
