Lowest Number of Books for Seven Years Drawn Out Last Year.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The total of the number of volumes used in Gore Hall and of those loaned from the building during 1911-12 was 83.386. This record shows a falling off of more than 19 percent when compared to the figures for 1908-09, and is the lowest total reached during the preceding seven years. The over-night use of Reference Books in Gore and in Harvard Halls during 1911-12 also shows a decrease, being less than during any other college year from 1908-12.

It is thus evident that there was a constantly decreasing recorded use of books in Gore and Harvard Halls from 1908-12, despite the acquisitions of the Library and the increased enrollment of the University.
