Committee runs library

When the head librarian position became vacant, NC State decided to save money by placing the library under the supervision of the Library Committee, instead of hiring a replacement. Frank Capps, director of college extension and instructor of business law, took on the position of executive secretary of the Library Committee (1926-1933). Although he moved his office to the library, he did not have the professional training or the time to provide much oversight. A growing backlog of materials was left uncataloged and unusable, while poorly trained student assistants proved unable to assist patrons. Despite these difficulties, the collections continued to grow and procedures for interlibrary lending were instituted.
