Baba Joykissen Mookerjee, of Ooterpara, made a donation of Rs. 5,000 to the University, on the 20th July, 1869, for the purpose of forming a Library. The amount was invested in 4 per cent. securities till the completion of the University building.
In 1874, the sum of Rs. 3,500 was added to the Library Fund from the sur. plus income of the University of that year; and the Syndicate, having thus at their disposal more than Rs. 9,000. appointed a Committee to report on the steps it was advisable to take to form a Library. The Committee reported (see Minates, Vol. XVIII, page 22), that they thought“ it desirable to begin with procaring such books as shall render the Calcutta University Library Supplementary to other Libraries now existing in Calcutta." The general principles laid down by the Committee, and the mode of procedure they proposed for adoption were approved by the Syndicate ; and further transfers have, from year to year, been made to the Library Fund from the surplus income of the University. Several instalments of books have been received, and the Library now contains, besides English works of reference, and the chief authorities on Indian antiquities, fairly complete sets of the Sanskrit, Arabic Latin, French and German classics.
