Description/Abstract

Associates and other friends frequently inquire about the Libraries' needs. This issue of The Courier is one response to this question. Libraries are books and related materials, organized for use. Balanced growth of retrospective collections can successfully be enriched by gift volumes, but the need for current books demands necessary funding with which to purchase them as they are published. In periods of sustained inflation and limited budget growth the pressure to maintain a steady level of acquisition collides head-on with declining purchasing power. There is, these days, no need greater than more dollars to meet the difference between the cost of essential materials and the budget available.
