DEPARTMENT OF MEDICAL LITERATURE.
The Barlow Medical Library is a handsome, dignified, dome-shaped, reinforced concrete, alsolutely fireproof structure, containing a main reading room with stacks for books, and a series of smaller rooms where research and special studies can be carried on.
The library is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is in charge of a trained librarian, who gives her entire time to the work.
A modified Dewey system of classification is used, the books being catalogued by author, subject, and title, so that they can readily be used for consultation in the reading room or for withdrawal from the library.
The privileges of the library are open not only to the medical students of the various colleges and to the physicians of Los Angeles, but to the entire profession of the Southwest, and alumni and friends are requested to send books and publications which they are willing to donate, to the librarian. Due acknowledgement will be made for all donations or loans.
The library has on its shelves some four thousand volumes and about three thousand pamphlets, and accessions are being constantly made by purchase, by exchange and by donations. All the more important texts and monographs and files of journals needed for reference in making original investigations are to be found here. In addition, arrangements have been made with other large medical libraries to obtain for loan use such volumes as may be needed in pursuing research work.
