BOOKBINDING 

FOR 

LIBRARIES 

"Universal Bindings" have for years been recog- 
nized as being all that is required in workmanship 
and materials, and as a result the steady increase in 
our business has forced us to open "branch 
plants" in different sections of the country in 
order to take care of our customers from a dis- 
tance. These branches are managed by execu- 
tives and mechanics from the main plant who are 
in position to give you the same quality of work 
and service you have been accustomed to getting 
from our home plant. 

Samples bound free.

THE 

LIBRARY 
JOURNAL 



For Over Fifty Tears the Leading 
Periodical of the Library Profession 



THE LIBRARY JOURNAL text presents a comprehensive sur- 
vey of the activities and interests of the whole library 
profession public, college, business, high school. It is in- 
dispensable for those who want to keep informed of the latest 
developments in library administration. 

fl The American Library Association says of THE LIBRARY 
JOURNAL: "A semi-monthly exponent of library progress 
whose volumes constitute a bibliothecal work now recognized 
as a necessity in every progressive library and as unexcelled 
in any language/' 

fl THE LIBRARY JOURNAL advertising section also is important 
because it is, in fact, a current directory of business firms 
which serve intelligently special library needs.

FOREWORD 

The AMERICAN LIBRARY DIRECTORY has been revised thruout for 1927, 
with much additional information not included in the issue of 1923. Libraries 
within the United States have been classified in the following categories, the 
list of Canadian libraries following in a single alphabet: 

(1) Public Libraries. This section includes public libraries and also general 
libraries which are more or less accessible to the public thru subscription or under 
restrictions as the Boston Athenaeum, and the John Crerar and Newberry Libra- 
ries in Chicago; such private collections as the Huntington. Library, accessible for 
special students or specific research only , the surviving Mercantile Libraries ; and 
the libraries of governmental departments and bureaus in Washington. 

The arrangement is alphabetical, first by states and thereunder by cities and 
towns Each state list is headed by the state commission or its equivalent, if there 
be such, and the state library, which latter is also entered in the list below under 
the city of its location. The public libraries listed are chiefly those of towns of 
over a thousand inhabitants, below which figure a- real library is rarely practicable, 
but the section does include some below this limit in exceptional cases. 

County libraries have been entered under the name of the town where the 
main library is located, with cross reference from the name of the county ; 
branches are separately entered only when libraries of individual character or 
importance The governmental libraries in Washington have been grouped under 
departments as far as possible, this semi-classified arrangement here seeming 
preferable 

Entries for the larger libraries include names of the chief librarian and heads 
of departments , numljer of branches , number of volumes, specifying as to books 
and pamphlets where these are separately reported , total income or expenditure, 
with specific expenditure for salaries, for books, and for periodicals ; and brief 
mention of special collections as noted below Library statistics are for the library 
or fiscal year 1926 when reported directly from the library or elsewhere recorded; 
otherwise they are from the most recent figures available. 

Less detailed in formation is given in the case of the smaller libraries, for it 
did not seem practicable or desirable to attempt a general questionnaire, for which, 
under an) Circumstances, the replies are a] it to be both tardy and inadequate. 
Information in such cases has usually been obtained from state commissions or 
other authorities most available and satisfactory 

(2) Educational and Professional Libraries. This section includes the 
libraries of universities, colleges, and normal schools, but not high school libraries ; 
law, medical, theological and other special schools; professional societies, as the 
American Bar Association and the New York Academy of Medicine ; art museums ; 
historical societies, and cognate organizations Professional schools which are 
attached to universities have been entered in this division under the university 
instead of in the list of special libraries 

(3) High School Libraries. This section includes high school libraries 
and those of preparatory schools ranking with them. The development of libra- 
ries in such institutions .has been so rapid and the turnover in personnel is so fre- 
quent, as demand increases, that this list cannot be considered as even approxi- 
mately complete. It is, however, the most inclusive list of high school libraries 
which has yet been published. 

(4) Business and Other Special Libraries. Thi,s section, as its title indi- 
cates, has been limited to libraries connected with business concerns or cognate 
organizations. The libraries of professional schools and associations, sometimes 



AMERICAN LIBRARY DIRECTORY 



classed with special libraries, will be found in Section (2). This list is, of course, 
to be supplemented by reference to the special collections noted in the lists of 
public, educational and professional libraries. Cross-references have not been 
attempted. 

(5) Miscellaneous Libraries. This section groups all the libraries which 
do not lend themselves to classification in any of the other sections, as those of 
private clubs, hospitals (except medical reference libraries, which are included 
among the Professional Libraries of Section 2) , army posts, prisons and like pub- 
lic institutions. 

(6) Libraries in U. S. Territories and Dependencies. This section includes 
libraries in the outlying regions over which the United States has jurisdiction, so 
far as these have been reported in response to inquiries. No attempt has been 
made to include in the previous sections the few libraries of special character 
scattered throughout these regions, all being here grouped in the one section. 

(7) Libraries of Canada. In this section an especial endeavor has been 
made, in view of the American Library Association conference at Toronto, to 
include as fully as possible the libraries of the' Canadian provinces. In this list the 
libraries in each province, of whatever character, have been included in a single 
alphabet under the name of the province. In the province of Ontario, the work of 
Inspector Carson, corresponding to that of the executive secretary of a library 
commission or division in our States, has been so effective that this one province 
includes many more libraries than the eight provinces of Canada together. 
Of the five hundred public libraries developed -in that province more than half 
are small rural libraries and are therefore -not included. 

Special Collections Within Libraries. An important feature of the present 
volume is the entry, under each library from which such information was obtained, 
of the special collections it possesses. This feature is of especial importance, in 
view of the co-operative efforts now being made to bring the whole library system 
into full knowledge of its treasures and into co-ordination in their use These 
efforts are based on the underlying principles that it is desirable to bring to the 
knowledge of every librarian and research worker the location of special collections 
in any particular subject , to make these available through inter-library loans to 
the student who really needs particular volumes ; to avoid duplication where this 
is unnecessary and wasteful; and to co-ordinate library facilities into regional 
systems. 

It may -be noted that one of the great advances in this specialization of icfer- 
ence collections has been achieved in the growth of business libraries and the 
development of the Special Libraries Association 

The initial endeavor in this direction was made in the Johnston-Mudge work 
(Bulletin 1912, No. 23 of the U. S. Bureau of Education) on "Special Collections 
in Libraries in the United States," giving detailed information, classified under 
subjects, as to collections in the libraries on which information was then available 
In the present year, Prof. E. C. Richardson, as Consultant in the Library of Con- 
gress, has indexed the variously recorded information relating to special collec- 
tions in two alphabets, one arranged geographically by libraries, the other by 
subjects. 

In the present directory, general subjects such as art, Europe, geography, 
German, history, etc., have not been entered as special collections; instead, the 
entries have been confined to more specific subjects as individual authors, periods 
of history, or unusual languages. It has been taken for granted that theological 
literature will be looked for in theological seminaries, medical literature in medical 
colleges, etc., so that the list of educational and professional libraries, as well as 
the list of special libraries, should be consulted in respect to such large divisions. 



AMERICAN LIBRARY DIRECTORY n 



It has been impracticable without undue delay to include in this volume an 
index to the special collections by subjects, but this may be attempted later, either 
in a supplementary issue or in a revision and extension of the present list in a 
future year, for which additions and revisions, including information from libra- 
ries not recording their statistics, are invited. 

Library Organizations and Schools. The main lists of the directory are 
followed by a record of library commissions and associations and by full informa- 
tion, supplied by the schools themselves, as to library schools accredited by the 
A. L. A. Additional material /chiefly 'based on A. L A. data, and covering the 
many short summer courses given in all parts of the country, is also here pre- 
sented in view of the growing 'importance of this feature of technical' education, 
and the recognition of the value added to their communities by professionally 
trained librarians. 

It is planned to continue the publication of the AMERICAN LIBRARY DIRECTORY 
at regular intervals, and to include in it other features which will make it of 
increasing value to the library profession and to all having to do with libraries. 

It is, therefore, especially desired that any users of the volume who note 
omissions or errors will send us their additions and corrections, and as new libra- 
ries are organized or minor libraries grow in importance in growing towns, that 
prompt information should be sent for inclusion in future issues of the directory.

High School Libraries 

This list includes, also, leading preparatory schools, but does not cover grade 
schools unless in exceptional cases. The list only approximates completeness, in 
view of the rapid increase of libraries within schools, and additions to the list are 
particularly invited for a future issue, which may also cover grade schools.
