In the meanwhile library visitors will be glad to know that bronze plates have been put on the doors so that they can find their way around the main part of the li brary. Wooden barriers still conceal the doors so that none shall see the interior before the right time. However, if the privileged find themselves inside they will see the entranceway of gold leaf, bronze, and marble, illuminated with liter ally many lights. In the main hall between the iron-wrought gates are two mem orial tablets in honor of Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall, one a quotation from him and the other a dedication to him. The main lobby, finished now with display shelves and desks, with only the floors missing, con tains an information desk where a worker will be on the job to di rect visitors. For Mr. Douglass and his secre tary there is a suite of office rooms. There is also a staff room for meetings and recreation, with an. adjoining kitchenette. “Room 30," too, has been glori fied. Large shelf space is provid ed for books for all professors who believe in students choosing their own. This room is across the hall from the upper division room and is entered through turnstiles. Off this room is found the Oregon collection with dice-shaped light ing fixtures and on the other side the rare book collection.
