"They provide easy access to library materials necessary for
the writing of doctoral theses, articles, monographs and research
studies of all types," MacAllister explained.
Carrells are usually assigned close to the section containing liter-

With 4,000 graduate students on campus, MacAllister pointed
out that more than three times as many persons apply for carrells
as are available.
"Consequently, more than one person must be assigned to each
compartment. Such assignments make for inconvenient crowding."
IN THE REQUESTS for building appropriations now being de-
bated in the State Legislature, he continued, $2,500,000 has been spe-
cified as the amount needed for an addition to the library. Plans for
this addition, he added, include provisions for four to five times as
many carrells as are now available.
Plans for individual reader's desks with attached panels for pri-
vacy will replace the present partitioned cubby-hols, MacAllister said.
The advantages of this design are mobility and economy, he explained.
PRIVILEGED CHARACTERS-Those assigned to carrells have an advantage over regular students
in that they are allowed to roam through the stacks and freely select materials. Books may be kept
in the carrells for as long as they are needed after which an inserted card instructs the carrell at-
