Report o f the Law Librarian 1970-1971

July

,1971

The progress o f the Law Library during the past year can be considered s a tis fa c to ry and on par with previous years.

However,

in uhe area o f the development o f the c o lle c tio n the progress is somewhat m isleading because funds o f the next f i s c a l year w i l l be needed uo pay fo r many purchases made during the year o f the rep ort. The need fo r a d d itio n a l funds fo r the development o f the c o lle c tio n and fo r personnel to provide the necessary q u a lity service i s grea ter than ever.

SURVEY OF THE COLLECTION For the past few years these annual reports have indicated the n^ed fo r sp ecia l funds in order to f i l l in the gaps so as to provide uhe high q u a lity c o lle c tio n needed by a law school o f the c a lib e r o f C orn ell.

There is now at hand substantial p roof o f th is need.

Tlirough funds made a va ila b le from savings on the sa la ries o f Personnel who resigned during the year, i t was possib le to survey

the holdings o f the Cornell Law Library by checking the l i s t s in Law Books Recommended For L ib r a r ie s , sponsored by the Association o f American Law Schools. in the next few pages.

The resu lts o f th is survey are set fo rth Of the b6 subjects lis t e d , the C ornell Law

The highest percentage, 73•2 per cent, was in

Of the 35,607 t i t l e s lis t e d , C ornell Law Library

had 13,760 fo r a percentage o f 38. 6 . When the holdings o f C ornell are observed from the standpoint o f the three types o f c o lle c tio n fo r which these l i s t s make recommen dations, i t w i l l be noted that Cornell has more than 50 per cent o f the t i t l e s recommended in 37 o f the ^6 subjects fo r category

A

lib r a r ie s , a basic minimum c o lle c tio n ; and 13 o f b6 fo r category "B" lib r a r ie s , an interm ediate c o lle c tio n .

Cornell Law Library,

which belongs in category "C", has 50 percent o f the t i t l e s recommended in only 7 o f the ^6 subjects.

This c le a r ly in dicates

how much is needed by the Cornell Law Library fo r i t to have a high q u a lity c o lle c tio n . I t should be noted that in the various areas o f fo reig n law the C orn ell Law Library c o lle c tio n is rather weak.

During the

past two years there has been a gradual reduction in purchases o f fo re ig n law m aterials and more is contemplated fo r the coming f i s c a l year in an attempt to stay w ith in the lim its o f the budget and not mortgage future a llo c a tio n s .
