For the purpose of determining the library policy of the University, it is recommended— 1. That all books, pamphlets, maps, etc. (other than account books), purchased with university moneys, shall be deemed to belong to the University library. 2. That all parts of the library shall be in the custody of the Librarian and he shall be responsible for the condition of the same. 3. That all reference books and all periodicals, magazines, and newspapers shall be made as easy of access as practicable to all patrons of the library, and that no limitations not necessary to their preservation shall be placed upon their free use. 4. That all other books, except such as are referred to in the next paragraph, shall be delivered for use by the Librarian or assistant only, upon a proper call. 5. That books which are purely technical and relate only to the work of a single department may be taken to that department under such regulations and for such time as the Librarian may determine; but he shall not thereby cease to be responsible for their safe keeping and proper use. 6. The Librarian may make and enforce such rules for the government of the library as are approved by the President.
A. S. DRAPER, President.
