APPENDIX XXII.

REPORT ON THE EXAMINATION OF THE LIBRARY.

To the Superintendent:

Sir, - For the year ending the 30th of April, 1871, there has been no regular examination of the Bates Hall collection, as the alterations in the hall and temporary changes in the location of the books have rendered it impossible. Since the completion of the shelving on the west side of the building the books have, however, been read by the shelf-lists and re-arranged in their proper places. Comparatively few of the volumes are missing, and it is believed that when the alterations on the east side are completed and the library again restored to its wonted order, the results of a full examination will prove as satisfactory as usual. Upon the Lower Hall library and the East Boston Branch, I beg leave to present the following

REPORT.

In the Lower Hall there were missing from the shelves at the time of examination

5,198 vols.

[blocks in formation]

Missing volumes are constantly and persistently sought, yet accidents are liable to occur in a library of so large a circulation, and . make it quite possible for a few books to slip away without being accounted for.

Eleven volumes recorded missing during previous years appeared on the shelves at the last examination, and nearly all of them were found to have been wrongly numbered. Of this number one was reported missing last year, five were missing in 1868, three in 1867, and two in 1866.

The number of books missing from each alcove, is as follows:
