THE new case for the card catalogue at the Library will, it is hoped, facilitate a speedy delivery of books, and we are glad to see that one alcove has been turned into a miniature reading-room. The recently introduced method of getting out books is cumbrous and unpleasant; but of course we poor undergraduates are not expected to see its merits, as, indeed, we do not, though its faults are patent to all. The increasing interest in the study of history in this College has laid bare another defect in our Library. Of what works we have duplicate sets (Bancroft, for example), only one set is reserved, so that some man gets hold of the other and holds it till after examination. If we are informed rightly, there is but one copy of Luden's, one of Giesebrecht's History of Germany, one of Stith's Virginia, one of Brodhead's New York, one of Ewald's "Our Constitution," etc., etc., - books either too rare or expensive for a poor man to think of buying, but for which he has great need at certain times in the year.
