Bulletin 64 July 1901





PREFATORY NOTE This is an annotated list of 250 books published in the United States in 1900, selected by the book board of the New York state library and recommended to the public libraries of the state. To aid in choosing small collections of new books three classes are marked : books marked a, of which there are 20, are suggested to libraries which must confine their additions within narrow limits; 30 others marked b are also proposed to libraries prepared to buy 50 books; and 50 more marked c may be added to a and b to make up 100 books.

The remaining 150, including reference books and a few more costly publications, are worthy of careful consideration by libraries prepared to buy more than 100 books and by those wishing to enlarge their resources in special subjects. Many of the unmarked works are of the highest merit. Decimal classification numbers are prefixed as a guide to libraries using this system.

All books under the heading “ Juvenile” may be used for academic libraries. The general list will also be of much service to schools, but not everything included here is recommended for school use. Such a book as Whiteing's, No. 5 John st. a well written and carefully studied story of the London slums, may be commended to the public library because of its sociologic interest and as a praiseworthy sample of its type, but it is hardly desirable to circulate even the best of slum fiction among school children. The school is better off without much of the current adult fiction which serves a legitimate purpose for the very different constituency of the public library.

Copies of this list may be obtained for 10 cents from the New York state library, Albany N. Y.

Melvil Dewey Albany, 18 June 1901
