of the new Library building, the gift of Henry W. Sage, accompanied by an endowment fund of $300,000; the otion and incorporation of the White Historical Library, presented by Ex-President Andrew D. White in 1887; and the establishment of the Reference Library in the new Reading-Room.

During the year there were added to the collections making up the General Library 5,759 volumes, and about 1,200 pamphlets, and to the Law School Library 727 volumes, making the total additions of the year to the University Library 6,486 volumes, and about 1,200 pamphlets. At the date of the Report the General Library, including the White Historical Library and the seminary collections, contained 101,815 volumes and some 25,000 pamphlets, while the Law School Library .contained 9,192 volumes, in all 111,000 volumes, exclusive of pamphlets. The recent presentation of the Moak Library, numbering some 13,000 volumes, to the Law School by Mrs. Boardman and Mrs. Williams, as a memorial to Dean Boardman, will more than double the extent of the Law Library, and make it one of the first in the country.

Of the 5,759 volumes added to the General Library during the year, 2,350 volumes were received in gifts, as against 1,504 volumes in 1890-91, and 946 volumes in 1889-90. Especially noteworthy among the gifts is a remarkably complete collection of Rhaeto-Romanic literature presented by Willard Fiske. This collection numbers about 1,000 volumes, and is by far the richest collection on this subject in America. A catalogue of the collection is now in press.

At the opening of the new building, a well-equipped reference library, numbering about 6,000 volumes,
