Librarian Cites Rise in Undergrad Circulation

By MAME JACKSON
"The Undergraduate Library is,
taking hold more and more with
University students," Mrs. Roberta
C. Keniston, head librarian, said
recently.
Book circulation during the
Library's second operational year'
has been on a steady increase.
Library statistics indicate that
162,000 books were drawn out for
home use during the past year-
more than a sixty per cent increase
over last year's home circulation.
An additional 454,000 volumes
were used by students in the Li-
brary itself. This figure shows a
ten per cent increase over the pre-
ceding year. Mrs. Keniston noted
that these figures probably do not
account for all the books used,
because many students reshelve
their books when they are finished.
"The entire atmosphere of the
Library encourages and stimulates
study. The open ventilation, the
comfortable furniture and the
lighting are all important factors.
"Open {shelves of well-selected
books arouse the students' interest
and encourage them to go beyond
the minimum reading require-
ments for a course.
"Also, professors are using the
Library more in connection with
teaching by assigning reading lists
and research papers."
"The increased circulation, how-

I I IY i

ever, does not apply only to
course-required books," Mrs. Ken-
iston added.
Over 41 per cent of the books
are read for pleasure or personal
research purposes. This voluntary
reading also shows a slight in-
crease over last year.

"Each incoming freshman class
seems to be more serious about
their studies. In the past the
Library didn't go into full swing
until the second or third week of
the semester. This . -"r the Li-
brary had to start operating full
force the first night," she said.
