Library tours  Continued f r o m Page 2 ( 4 ) Special vaiue to Canada or B ~ i t i s h Columbia, o r uniqueness, would be reasons for retaining and strengthening any corerelated activity. ( 5 ) The university ought to be prepared, more than in the case of core activities, to reduce or even eliminate core-related operations. For example, if the quality and enrolment in a particular program were low, and the costs were high, the program might be reduced or even eliminated completely, and this even though there were not alternative programs being uffered in the province. 3.12 ( I ) The university should not have any non-core activities, even in times of tinancial abundance. Therefore, even if there is no financial inducement to do so, rhe university should consider whether it wishes to continue to work in non-core activities should such exist. If anything, there should be a presumption against its doing so. (2) A non-core activity's continued existence at the university could, however, be justified. For example, this might be done on the basis of high quality and low costs, high enrolment and the lack of any other similar program in the province. 3.13 Assuming that an academic plan is developed following the suggested guidelines, there are three matters which in a sense are of an ancillary nature, but which are nonetheless of importance: (1) The procedures we have proposed exclude by implication either expansion o r retrenchment by pro rata increases or reductions in the allocation of resources. Decisions must be made by reference to some set of principles which have been agreed on in advance of making specific decisions. (2) The social and human impact of any reorganization of the work of the university cannot be ignored. Attention will therefore need to be paid to the effect of reorganization on faculty, staff and students. Equally, the effect of the alteration of academic activities on students who might have been planning to attend the university will have to be borne in mind. (3) Any plan that is developed can not be excessively rigid. Some allowance must be made for flexibility in its application, and, without planning ad nauseam, the university needs to reconsider from time to time the  the university. I t must be realized that thls will require a reduction in resources allocated to some other activity of the university. (2) Even though The University of British Columbia is an older institution than the other two universities. in many areas of its activities it has not yet been able to allocate to them all of the resources that they require. A conscious effort therefore needs to be made to preserve and strengthen activities that are already of a high quality, and to improve in areas where the quality is lower than it ought to be. (3) I f enrolment in an area of core activity appeared to be low, primaJacze efforts should be made to increase i t . A suggested approach to a perceived "high" enrolment is set out in paragraph 3.06 (4). (4) Special value to Canada o r British Columbia, or uniqueness, are simply added reasons for retaining or developing core activities of the university. (5) Despite the very strong presumption in favor of retaining and developing core activities, there could be cases where the university should consider contracting, or even eliminating completely, an activity otherwise regarded as core. For example, if the quality and enrolment in an existing program were low, if the costs were high and alternative programs were offered at other institutions, one might argue that it would be better for this university to eliminate the program completely.  3.11 ( 1 ) In the case of core related activities, the university should retain existing activities, but as a general principle should consider with great care any proposals to add new activities of this type. That would be particularly the case where the proposed activity builds on, rather than lays the foundation for a core activity. (2) If the quality of any existing core related activity is poor, consideration should be given to improving its quality. (3) If enrolment in a core-related activity is perceived to be high, the university should be more prepared to reduce enrolment than it would be in the case of core activities. Moreover, if enrolment in a core-related activity were low over a longish period of time then a case could well exist for reducing the support for such activity.  4  grneral structure of any plan that it adopts.  IV. I M P L E M E N T A T I O N  4.01 In the time available to us we have not been able to give proper consideration to the implementation of the principles which we suggest should form the framework of any academic plan adopted by the university. In any event, we doubt if we could draw up any implementation scheme without some reasonable consultation within the university. In this respect therefore we do no more than state what are probably two self-evident principles. First, if the university should accept our proposals as providing a framework for an academic plan, it should then immediately set to work to apply those principles to the situation in which it currently finds itself. Second, whatever the exact process of implementation, it needs to be done with the due involvement of the academic bodies of the university, in particular the faculties and the Senate.  Oriental night helps library UBC raised almost $10,000 for support of its Asian Studies Library as a result of an Oriental Night staged at the Robson Square Cinema on April 14. T h e largest single donors to the fundraising event were the Mitsui Canada Foundation and the Vancouver Chinatown Lions Club. Some 50 individuals also made contributions to the evening of entertainment sponsored by the UBC Library and Sing Tao newspaper, Vancouver's Chinese-language journal. Those who attended the event heard a selection of Japanese and Chinese music and saw dancing and a martial arts exhibition. Funds raised by the event will be used to purchase material for the UBC Asian Studies Library, housed in the Asian Centre, regarded as one of the leading libraries of its kind in North America.
