Student Use of the Library

Ellen P. Campbell


Not only is the Library used constantly all day long, but the use is by an unusually large number of the student body. During
the session of 1936-37, 98.5% of the senior class, and 92%
of the entire student body, withdrew books for home use. The
next year, 1937-38, 98% of the senior class and 92.6% of the
whole student body took books out of the Library. If the 7.4%
of the student body not using the Library were investigated,
it would probably be found that each had access to other collections of books more conveniently located, as the agricultural students may use the library on the College Farm campus entirely, and the ceramic students perhaps use only the books that are located in their building.
