The importance of instruction in the use of books, bibliography, and library economy is recognized by institutions of higher education in the United States. In many of the universities, colleges, and normal schools of the country prescribed courses are given in the book arts and bibliography. To obtain statistical and other data relating to "book arts, bibliography, library economy, or any institution in the management of libraries," the United States Bureau of Education on May 21, 1913, sent out a questionnaire to the 596 institutions of higher education and to the 284 normal schools of the United States. Replies were received from 446 universities and colleges and 166 normal schools. Of the colleges and universities 355 reported that no instruction was given in the book arts, etc, and 91 reported courses more or less adequate and complete. This bulletin discusses library instruction in universities, colleges and normal schools. A bibliography is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
