L XMENTS BOOK DEARTH
j"Librariy Dooks on Sciecce' is the
name of the bibliographical reference
f list of various scientific textboo0ks
compiled by Prof. W. G. Smeaton of
lite 'chemnistry dlepairtment, andl pub-
lished by the University extension di-
vision. The pamphlet is primarily for
the rurpose of providing a list of the
best and, in general, the latest publi-
cations of a scientific nature for the
use of those who need assistance in
the choice of libraries, specifically the
libraries of high schools, junior col-
jIeges, andl community centers.I
I To quote the foreword of the book:
"Members of the University faculty
who participate in the inspection of
I high schools, and especially those who
represent the teaching of science, have I
been1 impressed lby the dearth of sci-
neence books in so'condary school li-
braries. A similar (dearth of books is
ob~servable also in libraries of com-
munity centers and municipalities
in ijor colleges, which have multipledj
ra diy vwithin t lie last decade, offer
very serious prob~leims in matters of
library equipmient. It does not suffice
1:their needls to add a few reference
;works on science to t he libraries ofi
the high schools in which the colleges
are housed."3
The book is divided into three main
divisionis: life-science, comprising ag-
riculture, forestry, lbotany, zoology,
anthropology, psychology, and public'
health; earth science, including geog-
raphy, geology with oceanography,
tand meteorology, and mineralogy;
physical science, made utp of mathe-I
nia tics. astroniomy, pihysics, and chei1-
sit ry.
S"The coinpilat ion is intended to sug-
gest a nucleus of a science library--
