The Library & Information Services

A Member Service Function

The Library of the American Bankers Association had its in­ ception October 1, 1907, and has grown rapidly in size and ef­ ficiency. In 1915 it was necessary to double the floor space occupied and to enlarge the room for the filing of current in­ formation on topics pertaining to banking and finance. The ref­ erence department keeps pace with the development of events and the material is so arranged as to be of instant access. Ma­ terial is supplied to members of the Association on request and bibliographic information is available. The collection of books is constantly growing and the collecting from any source avail­ able of manuscripts and pamphlets on pertinent subjects is dili­ gently pursued.2
