               REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN.
To the President of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters:
SIR: At the suggestion of the General Secretary, Dr. Davies, I have made
a complete revision of the library of the Academy. This work has been of
considerable difficulty, owing to the fact that the bulk of the library consists
of pamphlets, and the unbound publications of the various scientific associ-
ations in our own and foreign countries. Many of these are exceedingly
valuable. Many of them contain the summation of the life-long investiga-
tions of specialists in their particular department of the vast field of
science.
Owing to their not being sufficiently well bound, few of these are at present
available to the members of the Academy - a thing to be deeply regretted,
since these publications are to be found in no other library of the State,
that
of the Academy filling a distinct and separate purpose, being, to a large
extent, supplementary to the State Historical Library. Taking these things
into consideration, it seems advisable that a certain sum should be set aside
annually for the purpose of preserving these various publications in a more
substantial binding.
  The library of the Academy contains seven hundred and forty-four volumes,
including pamphlets. Ufnder the present system of exchange, it is rapidly
growing. I herewith transmit a complete catalogue, embracing all publica-
tions received up to the present time (June 15th, 1878). The greater part
of
those from foreign societies have been forwarded by the courtesy of the Smith-
sonian Institute, at Washington, D. C.
