CLASSIFICATION AND NUMBERING OF COURSES.
I. UNDERGRADUATE COURSES.
1. Louer 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 p. 213.
(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 permission of the department concerned.
II. GRADUATE COURSES. NUMBERING.
Excepting only the major courses, all undergraduate courses, whether in the Lower or Upper Division, are numbered from 1 to 99, inclusive.
Honor courses, see p. 213, are designated by the letter y, following the course number.
T'ndergraduate major courses are numbered from 100 to 199, inclusive. Graduate courses are numbered from 200 to 299, inclusive. Year Courses ; Double Numbers. A course designated by a double number (for example, History 1A-1b) is continued through two succesfive half years, that is, from August to May, or from January to December. The student will use the first number in registering for second half-vear. A final report will be made by the instructor at the have been discontinued. The student may discontinue the course at end of each half-year; “provisional mid-year reports” in year courses the end of the first half-year, with final credit for the first half of the
THE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY.
The new University Library building, which was made possible 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 250,000 volumes. collection of between 15.000 and 20,000 volumes will be gradually accumulated on open shelves in the large reading room, where they will be free of access to all students; and, in addition, the seminar rooms, in which special collections on various subjects will be installed, will provide accommodations for more advanced workers.
Among the more important special collections may be mentioned the Bancroft Library of western 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 periodicals, amounting to considerably over 3,000 titles, will be housed 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 will be 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, will be provided by the depository catalogue which will be installed in the course of the year. This will contain in a single alphabet the printed cards of the Library of Congress, the John ('rerar Library in Chicago, and the Harvard Univer. sity Library, as well as cards on special subjects published by the Royal Library in Berlin.
