Note.-The holder of this ticket shall be bound to produce it when called

(6) The Librarian shall be precluded from issuing to Borrowers on Deposit :(i.) Such books as from their rarity or artistic or other

value he in his discretion deems should not be lent out, or which, in event of their being lost or defaced, could

be replaced with difficulty, if at all. (ii.) Such books as are constantly required, or in his be

lief are likely to be required, by Teachers or Students of the University in the prosecution of academic work and research ; and, in particular, books of reference and text-books of which there are not copies in the Library sufficient to meet all the probable requirements of

Teachers and Students. (iii.) Periodicals, till eight weeks after date of issue.
