Periodicals in Canadian Libraries


THE need for co-operative library catalogues of scientific periodicals has long been felt in many countries, and various projects have been undertaken to supply the deficiency. The work before us is an attempt to provide for those specially interested in scientific periodicals, and consists of a list of such material available in Canadian libraries, together with bibliographical information. Journals are arranged under their latest form of title, and publications of academies under the name of the society or institution. In our opinion, this method of listing the publications of academies does not facilitate their ready identification. Under the words “Kaiserlich” and “Koniglich” there are quite a number of entries, although events of recent years have caused these adjectives to be dropped or replaced. As an example, the Koniglich-Preussische Akademie der Wissen-schaften is now known as the Preussische Akademie, though this fact cannot be ascertained from the present work. Had publications of this character been listed under the first word of their title-in this case Sitzungsberichte-consultation would have been simplified.
