several thousands too large, which consequently affects the figures of the total circulation NOTE. The figures of the circulation of the Lower Hall for 1867 are considered to be

NOTE. — White slips are used for drawing books for home use, or hall use, one at a time. When books are drawn for reference, buff slips are used, and several volumes may be in use in the hall by one person at the same time by means of these slips. No account of the number of volumes used in this last way was made during 1868-9; but it is estimated to have been about 4,000 volumes. The difference in the total of 1868-9 compared with the total of Lower Hall issues in table (Appendix X.) shows the number of volumes in circulation July 31, 1869, namely, 2,341.
NOTE.-New registrations were begun in 1854, 1859, and 1868. In the column of "Cards not called for," the total may not be correct, inasmuch as some of the number given for 1868 may have since been called for. This also affects the total in the last column, which is got by taking the figures of the previous column from the column of "Applicants."
NOTE. The column of "Received since" denotes those received of the "Total recommended" the same year. What may be in subsequent years received of such "Total recommended," does not appear in this table. For instance, of the 1,120-(183+423)=514 not received in 1868 of the total recommended that year, a large part has since been received.
