This having been done has greatly increased the facilities for placing and caring for the books and improving the means of access. Dupli cates, United States government publications and state reports have since been moved and adjusted so that they are much more accessible. Among the improvements ne is more perceptible than the collecting together alphabetically, on the fourth story, of the publications of the several states, territories and foreign countries. The alcoves have been marked with large brass letters, thus locating the different classes, while on the shelves have been placed seven hundred Shelf labels plainly marked in type, so that the visitor as well as the attendant can readily locate the books at a glance. Four thousand five hundred label numbers have been placed upon the various court reports, the original numbers, owing to constant handling, having become almost obliterated.
