I. UNDERGRADUATE COURSES.

1. Lower Division Courses.

(a) A prescribed course is one that is required specifically or as an alternative for graduation in any particular college.

(b) A free-elective course in the lower division is any course that is not prescribed. A free elective course may be taken as

a prerequisite for a more advanced elective in the same field. 2. Upper Division Courses.

(a) A major course is an upper division course of advanced work in a department of study that has been pursued in the lower division, or of elementary work in a subject of such difficulty as to require the maturity of upper division students. All major courses are definitely announced as such, and are given the numbers 100-199, as is explained below. Concerning honor courses, see the annual Circular of Information of the Academic Colleges.

(b) A free-elective course in the upper division is a course for which the Junior Certificate or junior standing is normally prerequisite, but which does not demand necessarily any preliminary knowledge of the subject. Lower division courses may be taken as free-electives in the upper division, but upper division courses, whether free-elective or otherwise, are not open to students of the lower division without the special permis

sion of the department concerned. II. GRADUATE COURSES.

THE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY

The new University Library building, provided by the bequest of the late Charles F. Doe, was first occupied in June, 1911, at the opening of the Summer Session. The accommodations for students are much greater than in the past. The library at present contains about 290,000 volumes. A collection of between 15,000 and 20,000 volumes is being gradually accumulated on open shelves in the large reading room, free of access to all students; and, in addition, the seminar rooms, in which special collections on various subjects are installed, provide accommodations for more advanced workers.

Among the more important special collections may be mentioned the Bancroft Library of west American history, which is unique in its field, and the Weinhold collection on Germanic philology and folklore. The law library of something over 9,000 volumes is separately housed in the new Boalt Hall of Law.

The current serials and periodicals, amounting to considerably over 5,400 titles, are kept in a special room on the ground floor of the University Library. Much unusual material, especially in the field of foreign scientific publications, is received in exchange for the publications of the University and is included here.

The resources of the library are supplemented by an inter-library loan system, and information as to the resources of certain other large libraries, which can be drawn upon when necessary, is provided by the depository catalogue. This contains the printed cards of the Library of Congress, the university and John Crerar libraries in Chicago, and the Harvard University Library, as well as cards on special subjects published by the Royal Library in Berlin.
