Law Library Journal
Has the library added volumes upon volumes merely to increase its total count; or has there been some well-rounded and well-balanced plan for developing the collection along lines best designed to serve all types of patrons? If such a plan has obtained, has it been carried out? Is the library a representative storehouse of law? Has it provided essential tools for the practitioner, and at the same time cultural and research materials for the student and teacher alike? Has the library depth as well as breadth? Have its reference materials been selected for the best possible study of research problems ? Are they up to date and are they exhaustive? These and many more questions of similar import will perchance pass through the librarian's mind as he ponders and reflects upon the passing of the 100,000 mark, and as he surveys the library structure which in part his efforts have helped to create.
