This course is designed to offer a systematic outline of the essentials of library work. It will be of assistance chiefly to those having some experience in the work, but also offers an introduction to modern methods for those intending to enter the profession.

A limited number only can be admitted to the course, and those will be selected from the whole number of applicants with due regard to personal and educational qualifications and previous library experience. In order that selection may be made sufficiently early to allow accepted applicants necessary time for preparation no application can be considered which is received subsequent to May 1, 1913. All applicants will be notified of the result of the selection on or before May 15, and those accepted should immediately fill out and file with the Recorder of the Faculties the blank form of Application for Admission which will be found in the back of this bulletin, in accordance with the general rules governing registration in the Summer Session. Note that this form should not be used for the initial application.

Only those students regularly registered for the library course may attend the classes; auditors cannot be accommodated.
