Cooperation between Scientific Libraries


IN connection with the discussion raised by the note on Dr. Muir's paper (p. 372) and Dr. Bather's letter, it may be of interest to note that the Royal Irish Academy, some five years ago, prepared a classified card-catalogue of the scientific serials accessible in various libraries in Dublin, and it is proposed to keep this up to date through the cooperation of the various librarians. This catalogue is always ready for reference by any member or visitor in the academy's reading-room; and it has been of late years the custom for the library committees of various Dublin institutions to inquire, when a new periodical is proposed, as to its possible previous inclusion in one of the other libraries.
