THE third annual report of the Brotherton Collection Committee, University of Leeds, states that a beginning has been made in the work of valuing the Collection, case by case, and of cataloguing the uncatalogued books (University of Leeds: The Brotherton Collection. Pp.4. Leeds: The University, 1938). A scheme has been drawn up for the purchase of new books, which would be confined to certain authors and subjects wherein the Collection is already strong, so that relative completeness could be obtained. The very extensive collection of pamphlets on Sheffield has been re-arranged. Mr. J. A, Symington, first keeper of the Brotherton Collection, relinquished that office on July 31, 1938, and on the recommendation of the Brotherton Collection Committee, the Council of the University of Leeds appointed Dr. Richard Offer, the University Librarian, to be Keeper of the Collection from August 1.
