Excerpt from Book Review Digest The practice, inaugurated last year, of issuing the annual cumulation of the book review digest in February. Instead of in December may now be said to be established. The valuable reviews in the monthly periodicals do not, however, all appear in time to be included even under this new arrangement. Where additional criticisms of 1915 books are deemed of' sufficient importance, they will be entered in the 1916 Digest. This year has seen a change in the editorial staff. Miss Clara E. Fanning, under whose editorship the Digest has been published since 1905, left in September to take a position in the Minneapolis Public Library, and Miss Margaret Jackson, formerly with The Century Company and the New York Public Library, assumed editorial charge at that date.

The Dewey classification numbers, a new feature of the 1915 Digest, have been assigned by Miss Corinne Bacon, editor of the forthcoming Standard Catalog. Miss Bacon is one of the advisory committee appointed by the with the cordial approval of Mr. Dewey, to' make recommendations for the expansion of the Dewey classification.

Excerpt from Book Review Digest: Sixth Annual Cumulation; Book Reviews of 1910 in One Alphabet This volume is the sixth annual cumulation of the Book Review Digest. It contains descriptive notes and excerpts from the criticisms of the best English and American reviewers upon the books which have been issued by the various publishers during 1910. We have given estimates of about books for which we have had reviews, we have endeavored to be fair and judicial in our summary of them, and we have included many books for which the librarian obviously would have no use in the belief that a knowledge of what is not desirable is quite as valuable as a knowledge of what is. We have quoted adverse and favorable criticisms impartially and we have endeavored to keep constantly in view our ideal of representing things as they are.

Excerpt from The Book Review Digest, Vol. 5: Book Reviews of 1909 in One Alphabet We shall pass over the author's duty to readers. We do wish, however, to re mind our patrons that the responsibility of the reviewer is a vital one. Thru his criticism, the book is made or marred for a large class of readers who have not time to experiment with the season's output of literature. Because the reviewer's obligation is a serious one, the list of periodicals from which we cull excerpt material for the Book Review Digest has been selected with the utmost care; only reliable and authoritative magazines have been chosen whose departure from high standards of excellence results in injury to an established reputation. The te views published in such periodicals may not be infallible - nothing short of the millennium can eliminate personal bias - but they represent the most conscientious interpretation and the best judgment of the present day. With the foregoing facts in mind, we beg our patrons to remember that the Book Review Digest, without an Opinion of its own, aims only to assemble the various critical judgments in a manner that will enable a reader to arrive quickly at a reasonably intelligent conclusion concerning the merits of a new book, and to offer reference data that will make possible easy access to the reviews from which the clippings were made.
