A Librarian's Philosophy

Donald F. Cameron


Cameron gives credit to his predecessor, George Osborn, University Librarian, with creating policies which he continued. He especially stresses operating the library with completely open stacks where the students were free to go to the books on the shelves.  He has maintained that basic policy while the library expanded rapidly. He notes that "The problems of management will remain and will grow. These problems are problems of a kind of prosperity unknown in the past. The long tradition of bringing books and students together is still our guide."
