students. However, studies which
have been taken show that many
parking stalls are empty during
class hours. A parking lot West
of the Stadium, for example, Is
never more than 40 per cent full.
Evidently, there are other rea
sons why students are parking
in restricted areas. These areas
are closer to the campus than
those for students, and students
would naturally prefer to walk
the shorter distance to classes.
There may be the problem of
either parking in these closer
areas or being late for class.
Definite plans are underway to
create a temporary parking lot
in an area behind the Union ex
tending to the Alpha Phi house.
This would provide a parking
area for a great many cars closer
to the campus.
Meanwhile, however, a con

Since I have occasionally won

am grateful for your recent ai

the other possibilities? "
It is possible to see the build
ing and institution as the focus
through which the entire record
ed knowledge of our world is
made available, here in Lincoln,
to the student and to the citizens
of the state. The few thousand
volumes seen in the open shelves
are backed by the hundreds of
thousands in the stacks. Together
these may be a half millon or a
million and half titles. The li
brarians won't say. "The count
ing of books is a notoriously in
Less apparent, but available,
are the millions of volumes of
the other university libraries of
the United States and of our
great national collection, the Li
brary of Congress. And in back
of these, more difficult in terms
of time and money, but still avail-1
able, are the contents'of the great
national collections in the British
Museum and the Bibliotheque
Any librarian will, gladly I am
sure, explain the mechanics by
which this accumulation of
knowledge is brought to bear
upon a specific problem. Card
catalogues and Readers Guide are
devices for only the simplest
work. In back of them are biblr
ographies of bibliographies, bib
liographles and union lists, and
the hundreds of volumes of the
printed catalogues of the great'
national libraries of both books
and manuscripts. And from these
all are available by teciniques of
purchase, intenibrary loan, and
photostat or microfilm.
Unfortunately, maint e nance
and use of this terrific instru
ment costs money. A university
library is a multi-purpose instru
ment, with all the compromises
inherent in such things. It must
be maintained to serve both the
present and prospective needs of
the undergraduate being pre
pared for life itself, for the major
and graduate student preparing
for a vocation, and the research
student attempting to increase the
basic stock of knowledge. Ex
ploitation has to be proportioned
to need. First editions are very
nice, but luxuries. Anyone can
discover easily how well these
needs are met and will, I am
quite sure, discover many more
reasons for pride than complaint.
