This collection contains annual reports for the University Library as well as annual reports for Library departments. Library
statistics are included in these reports.
In 1908, the library of the Davis campus began as a single room monitored by the stenographer/bookkeeper of the University
Farm Creamery. It housed bulletins and textbooks, and the books sent from the main library at Berkeley. In the years before
World War I, the librarian also served as registrar for the Farm and occasionally taught English. In 1924, the Library occupied
two rooms on the first floor, west end of the Classroom Building and housed 1,840 titles, mostly bulletins, circulars and
reports from the U.S.D.A.
