Cessation During Christmas Season.
Owing to the rush of business and to the congestion affecting both
the mails and the handling of express, the larger libraries of the country
have agreed for some years past to stop inter-library loans between De-
cember 15 and January 6. Any persons wishing to have books borrowed
from other libraries for use here during the Christmas holidays are re-
quested to arrange for this immediately with the Superintendent of the
Reading Room, as requests to borrow books will not be honored by most
libraries (including the Library of this University) after December 15,
and until January 6.
This notice is issued in order to avoid difficulties which have arisen
in past years. W. W. Bishop, Librarian.
Notice to Users of the Daily Official Bulletin: Your attention is again
called to the fact that the Daily Official Bulletin is edited in the Office
of the Assistant to the President and that notices for publication in the
Bulletin must be handed in at that office at the times stated in the
heading of the Bulletin. The Michigan Daily is not authorized to accept
notices for publication nor to include them in the Bulletin.
