. For choral music, the intended usage. Indicate

When more than one file cabinet is used, cabinets
should be identified by Roman numerals (I, II, III, IV).

Large unfranked envelopes containing the music
should clearly identify the contents by listing the title in
the upper left corner, composer underneath the title, and
any appropriate notation about the use of the music (for
special seasons or the religious calendar) underneath the
composer. The numbering system described previously
should be placed in large print on the upper right corner
of the envelope.
Like public libraries, shipboard libraries come in all
shapes and with a wide variety of purposes and
Each develops numerous activities and
programs to meet the specific needs of its users. Some
of these activities and programs are unique and used in
only one particular library, but others are basic to
operating any library. The activities that are common to
all libraries have to do with administering the library,
building the collection, making materials accessible for
use, and serving the users. The number and complexity
of these activities and ways in which they are performed
will differ according to the size and mission of the
facility, clientele, level of financial support, and the size
of the library staff.
Encouragement of reading is your primary goal.
Methods to stimulate reading vary with the type of
library and the nature and purpose of user needs. They
may include directed programs such as reading and
discussion groups, book talks, specialized
bibliographies, exhibits, easy access browsing areas,
and teaching the use of specific library tools.
Todays multimedia libraries have the added
challenge of making users aware of the many materials
and services available. New services that may be
available include audio-video, microform,
microcomputers, and CD ROM.
