Collecting obscure works like this one has helped Harvard amass the world's largest university library. But the days of accumulating every important title and artifact under the scholarly sun are over for Harvard's labyrinthine system of 73 libraries. Facing an unprecedented budget crunch, the university cancelled print copies of more than 1,000 journal titles last year in favor of online subscriptions.
