Report of Honorary Librarian.

The Library continues to be of use to the members of the Society and the Staff and Honours Students of Victoria University College. Approximately 200 volumes were taken out by workers during the year in addition to those consulted in the Library, and a number of volumes have been posted to other centres under the inter-loan scheme.

At the request of the Libraries Association an article dealing with the history of the Royal Society's Library was written by the Secretary and published in the November issue of the Bulletin of the New Zealand Library Association.

Binding: During the year 35 volumes were bound, and the small amount now left in the Binding Account will be adequate to keep only the binding of a few sets up-to-date. It will be most unfortunate if the present binding arrangements cannot continue.

Exchanges: The exchanges from Britain, America, South Africa, and Australia come to hand more or less regularly, and the Society is fortunate in having lost very few periodicals by enemy action.

W. P. Evans,

Honorary Librarian.
