Excerpt from Poole's Index to Periodical Literature: Fifth Supplement, From January 1, 1902 to January 1, 1907
With the great increase in the number of excellent periodicals, growth in the size of these Supplements is inevitable, and it will be noticed that this issue contains ten per cent. More pages than its predecessor. It covers 190 different periodicals as against 170 in the last volume, and indexes 1360 volumes.
It will be observed on examining the Chronological Conspectus prefixed to this volume that of the 232 sets included in the edition of 1882 only 49 are continued in this Supplement, while 141 newer ones are here included. Of this number 33 appear in this Supplement for the first time, a portion of these being new ven tures, started during the period or just before its beginning, and others represent ing the effort to fulfil the promise that older serials worthy of being indexed should be taken up in the Supplements.
Special pains have been taken to include in this volume references to a large number of college and university publications, making the index of special value to the larger libraries; while at the same time it has not been in the least weak ened on the more popular side. Among these additions to the list, special atten tion may well be called to the Princeton University Bulletin, 15 vols., the Catholic University Bulletin, 12 vols, the University of Chicago Record, 10 vols., the Co lumbia University Quarterly, 8 vols., the California University Chronicle, 8 vols., the Wisconsin Alumni Magazine, 7 vols., and the Technology Review, 8 vols. While these periodicals are quite largely Occupied with matters pertaining to the institutions issuing them, such matter not being of value for the purpose of this Index, they also have many papers of importance on live subjects, and it is thought that their inclusion will be appreciated in all the larger libraries.
