1. The Library Council. By resolution of the Board of Trustees, passed in 1883, the Library Council consists of seven members, as follows: - The President of the University and the Librarian, or Acting Librarian, ex officio; one member elected by the Trustees from their own number; and four professors nominated by the Faculty and confirmed by the Board. The elected members hold office one year, and the regular election takes place at the beginning of the Fall term in each University year. The members of the council for the year 1886-87 are President C. K. Adams, chairman, and G. Wm. Harris, secretary, ex officio; H. B. Lord, elected by the Trustees; Professors H. Corson, S. H. Gage, W. G. Hale, and L. A. Wait, elected by the Faculty.
To this council is committed the general supervision and management of the Library, and the apportionment of the book funds among the different departments of instruction. The President and Librarian are authorized to approve orders, signed by professors at the head of departments, for ordinary working books, but must refer to the council all orders for costly or otherwise exceptional works. All order slips for new books must be signed, or countersigned, by the professors in charge of the respective departments.
2. The Library Service. The regular service of the Library is at present performed by the following persons:- George William Harris, Acting Librarian; Edwin Hamlin Woodruff, Chief Cataloguer; Gertrude Frances Van Dusen, Assistant Cataloguer; Philip Price Barton and Charles Henry Hull, Assistants; Charles F. Lashier, Janitor.
3. Library Hours and Rules. - During term time the University Library is open every week-day from 8 A. M. till 9.30 P. M, except on Saturdays, when the hour of closing is 5 P. M. During vacations the Library is open every week-day from 9 A. M. till 5 P. M., or till sunset when that is before 5.
Under the existing regulations, books may be withdrawn by the officers of the University either for their personal use or for reference in the labora tories; but encyclopædias, dictionaries, and the books in the Reference cases in the reading-room must not be taken from the Library except by special permission. After a book belonging to the University Library has been retained in the possession of an officer of the University for three months it may be recalled by the Librarian, if desired by any other officer, and all books are called in at the close of the academic year in June.
Holders of University fellowships are permitted, by vote of the Library Council, to draw books from the Library under the following restrictions:- - Each fellow shall be entitled to have in his possession at one time five volumes, but not more, and may retain each volume two weeks, but no longer. The titles of books proposed to be drawn must be submitted to the professors in the departments concerned, and such books as they may consider necessary to be kept in the Library for reference must not be withdrawn.
For students of the University and others the Library is strictly a reference library. Graduate students are admitted to the alcoves, and, upon the recommendation of the professor in any department, members of the Senior and Junior classes engaged
in work requiring special research, are granted admission, for limited periods, to the alcoves, for purposes of consultation and investigation.
All Graduates and Seniors have free access during Library hours to the collections in the Seminary Room (adjoining the main Library), containing the current numbers of one hundred and fifty of the principal historical, literary, and philological periodicals, and some two thousand volumes of works relating to American History, English History, and Political Science, selected with special reference to the needs of students engaged in advanced work.
All Undergraduates have unrestricted access to the collection of encyclopædias, dictionaries, and general works of reference in the reading-room, and also to the cases containing the works reserved from time to time by professors for the use of their classes. Other books desired by students are supplied by the attendants, who are instructed to give every assistance in their power to those who use the Library.
4. Progress of the Card Catalogue.— The University Library's dictionary card catalogue, authors and subjects, which was begun April 1, 1882, now includes (1) all accessions to the Library since that date, and (2) all books which were in the Library before that date, on the following subjects:
American Literature; Education; English Literature; Folk-lore.
History (excepting the May anti-slavery collection, of which there is an author catalogue on cards). Law (excepting the King law library, of which there is a MS. finding list).
Natural Sciences (including Anatomy and Physiology, and excluding Astronomy, of which there is a classified printed list).
Philosophy; Political Economy; Political Science; Social Science.
The following aids are available for finding those books which were in the Library before the date named and which are not included in the above list as being among the subjects incorporated in the card catalogue:
A classified printed catalogue of works in the Library relating to Mathematics (including Astronomy, Engineering, Mechanics, Military Art and Science, and Navigation).
A printed author catalogue of the architectural works in the Library, published in no. 1 of the Library Bulletin.
A printed catalogue of the Bopp collection, comprising most of the works in the Library on Oriental Linguistics and Comparative Philology.
A MS. catalogue of the Anthon collection, mainly composed of Greek and Latin authors and works on Classical Philology.
A MS. catalogue of agricultural works.
In addition to the dictionary card catalogue and the supplementary aids mentioned, there is a subject index, on cards, of the whole Library, excepting American History; a consolidated accession list which is at all times an author catalogue of additions to the Library since Jan. 1, 1881; and two Ms. volumes containing lists of books, and articles in periodicals, relating to subjects which have been announced from time to time, since 1883, for essays and orations in the department of General Literature and Oratory.

The ad annual report of W. B. Smith.
This collection of the charters, ordinances, and other documents of American cities has been brought together for the purpose of illustrating the development of municipal government in America, and is intended to be used in connection with the lectures on Theories and Methods of Municipal Institutions, and the seminary work in the President White School of History and Political Science. Forty cities are more or less fully represented in the collection, which now contains upwards of five hundred volumes. At present there is no fund available for filling up the deficiencies which exist in many of the sets, or for the increase of the collection. An appeal is therefore made for gifts of city documents, or of books and pamphlets on the subject of municipal government, which will be thankfully received, and will add much to the usefulness of the collection. Packages should be addressed to "Cornell University Library, Ithaca, N. Y.," and may be sent by express at the expense of the Library.
