In an analysis such as this, on the working of a special department of the library, references to the work of other departments, and to library administration in general, cannot be omitted, since the duties of the various departments to some extent overlap. One aspect of the subject— that of private reference libraries in the larger business offices— has not been mentioned, because there is no literature and little information on the subject, and the examination of one such library was disappointing, in spite of the excellent arrangement and really good collection of books, because no information of any great value (from the standpoint of the student of library routine) was gained by its inspection.
