The increased boa budget has permitted*the addition of e number of state digests and encyclopedia as w ell as state oriented publications. These have been of great value to students intending to practice in states other than New York. Few publi­ cations In the areas of textbooks, tre a tis e s , casebooks and law reviews axe system atically being acquired. Multiple copies i i t e m s in frequent demand have been added to the Reserve Collection to J*set the needs of the increased student body. Special e ffo rts are being exerted to enrich law co llectio n . Desiderata l i s t s are being prepared expanded acquisitions program, based on the response survey questionnaire and the policy decisions of the te e .
