Excerpt from The John Crerar Library: Supplement to the List of Serials in Public Libraries of Chicago and Evanston, Corrected to April, 1903

Another proof may be found in the readiness with which the libraries have furnished material for the supplement. Only one. St. Ignatius College, has not done so. It has been prevented by a change of librarians and the recataloguing of its library, and it hopes to be able to join in the next revision. On the other hand, the Chicago Historical Society, which was unable to furnish material for the original list. Has done so for the supplement, thus materially enhancing its value and broadening its scope.

This volume should be consulted first in all cases. Even when reference to the desired title from an older form or from the society publishing it, or to the desired society from a place. Is found only in the original list. For reprinted titles all the entries have been reprinted so that it is unnecessary to consult the original for a title in the supplement. On the other hand, no titles have been reprinted except to give additional information or to correct errors of some importance, so that the entries for one publication of a society may be found in the supplement and for another in the original list.

The supplement, like the original list, is intended to include all serials not purely administrative, of which a library has (1) five volumes or years in sequence; (2) one-half of the set if less than ten volumes or years; (3) the first or last volume if not in any other library. There have been included, also. Though somewhat incompletely, all state documents and the publications of all Chicago societies and institutions, whether administrative or not.

One change in the method of entry has been made by unanimous consent of the larger libraries. The entry of foreign serials having individual titles under the society has proved so inconvenient that such serials are now entered under the title, in accordance with the rule for American and English publications. Reference has been made from the societies in all cases where their agency is known. References are made also from the place of location of a society to the name of the society unless the reference occurs in the original list.
