REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN.
LIBRARY OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION,
WASHINGTON, D. C., April 1, 1875. MR. PRESIDENT:
I HAVE the honor to report, as Librarian, that during the past year, as shown by the accompanying catalogue, there have been added to the Library seventy-five distinct titles, exclusive of yearly volumes of transactions of societies, reports of hospitals, and boards of health, and volumes of medical journals, where these have been previously catalogued as distinct titles. This addition makes the Library to consist at present of 506 distinct titles.
The Librarian, although anxious to keep the importance and deficiencies of the Library prominently before the members of the Association, can find but little to add to the suggestions made in former reports, save that time, rather than lessening, serves but to add force and application to those suggestions. The resolutions passed at the last meeting empowering the Committee of Publication to exchange copies of the Transactions with all State medical societies and with medical journals have already proved advantageous to the growth of the Library. Thirty-three medical journals now send copies of their issue regularly to the Library. A resolution was also adopted at the same time to the effect that a similar exchange be entered into with the various foreign medical societies. The Librarian would suggest, in regard to this latter resolution, that, in order to relieve the Committee of Publication from this extra duty entailed upon them, a resolution be passed furnishing the Librarian yearly with thirty copies of the Transactions for exchange with foreign medical societies and prominent foreign medical journals, to be accounted for to the Committee of Publication.
Three works presented to the Association at its last (twentyfifth annual) meeting have failed as yet to reach the Librarian, viz.: Vital Statistics of New Orleans from 1769 to 1874; a pam. phlet, title not given, and a work written by Dr. Valentine Seaman, presented by Mrs. Leggett.
Accompanying this is an account of necessary expenditures during the year; and the Librarian takes this opportunity, in the name of the Association, to express thanks to all those who have contributed to the growth and preservation of the Library, and to hope that members will regard the published catalogue as indicating to them one of their duties as members in attempting to supply its deficiencies from their store of duplicates, odd numbers of medical journals, old pamphlets, and text-books which by the lapse of time no longer meet the requirements of the practitioner of to-day; and to see themselves represented as fully as possible through their own works in what should be considered the National Medical Library.
Librarian. 2111 Pennsylvania Avenue.
