Mutilation and Theft
It needs little imagination to realize the mutilation is a serious antisocial activity which impairs the usefulness of these publications not only for present readers but (especially with serial and out of print books) for future generation of users, since such applications are often unobtainable again at any cost. Therefore, any person who mutilate or steals College books will face the full severity of college discipline.
