STATISTICS - A Correction:
Those of you who studied critically the statistics presented in last week's issue of
the Builetin may have been surprised to learn that the Library has 433 Library Assistants
who have stayed with us over two years.  You may also have wondered who is the person with
a B.A. who has served for 21 years; where are the five without B.A.'s; are there really 22
L.A.'s who have been around for 11 years? etc.
The explanation is simple:  your editor mixed some rough doodlings into the final figures
and  thought about other things while typing and reading the proof.  The true picture is
as follows:

VISIT THE LIBRARY of Congress:
On Tuesday,   February  18th at 3.30 p.m.,  Mr.   Stuart-Stubbs will   give an   illustrated  talk
on  the Library of Congress  to  interested  staff members.
Place:  School of Librarianship.
UNDERGRADUATE Library:
The Board of Governors has appointed the firm of Rhone and Iredale as architects for
the new library.  Mr. Ellsworth Mason of Hofstra University will act as consultant.  The
architects and the consultant will meet with the Userjs Committee on February 21.  In
order to add to our store of information on new buildings, Mr. Erickson and Mr. Forbes
will be visiting libraries in the middle-western U.S. this month.
LIBRARIANS' Salaries:
Negotiations for 1969/70 are about to begin. Librarians have elected four representatives (originally three, but a tie vote made it necessary to add a fourth) to work with
Mr. Stuart-Stubbs and Mr. Bell in drawing up the brief.  The representatives are: A. Leith,
R. Brongers, L. Carrier, and T. Shorthouse.
UNBOUND JOURNALS - Circulation Study:
The Social Sciences Division has just completed an analysis of unbound social science
and humanities journals which circulated from July 1, 1967, to August 31, 1968.  Despite
the fact that this analysis is far from reliabte statistically, it does provide an interesting picture of the use of unbound serials.  Without it, who would have believed that
the highest recorded circulation was for the Illustrated Weekly of India?
The list is in two parts: an alphabetical list of journals, showing the number of times
each circulated, and a list of the journals by their circulation figures. There are errors
in both the transcription and the alphabetizing for which we apologize, and of course no
check could be made of those journals read within the Library and not checked out.
Anyone interested in seeing the analysis may enquire at the Social Sciences Division. UBC Library Bulletin - page 2
A VISITOR From Many Places:
Mrs. Gloria Strathern of the Social Sciences Research Centre of the University of Victoria
is workinginthe Library at present, based in the Special Collections Division.  She is
compiling a bibliography of British Columbia for the period prior to the establishment of
the Colony of Vancouver Island, as a companion study to the work already compiled by
Mrs. Barbara Lowther for the University of Victoria.
Mrs. Strathern is a New Zealander. A history graduate of the University of New Zealand,
she received her library training at the New Zealand Library School.  She specialized in
Pacific Area Studies, first at the Alexander Turnbull Library as Reference Librarian and
First Assistant, and later as Librarian of the Hocken Library.  In 1964 she went to England
and spent a period studying the administration and collection-building of major libraries
with substantial holdings of Commonwealth material, and later worked for a time with the
British Records Association.  Before coming to Canada she lived in Oxford for a year, working there as college librarian.
So, if any reader is interested in getting first-hand information on conditions in
any of the places known to Mrs. Strathern, pay her a visit before she leaves us.
PROFESSIONAL Vacancies:
Applications for the following positions are invited:
Assistant Librarian for Technical Services.
Bibliographer for European Languages. (G. Elliston is assuming R.J. Lanning's
responsibilities for periodical literature)
NOTE: Mr. Stuart-Stubbs would also appreciate receiving suggestions for candidates for
the former position.  Thus far the job has not been advertised; no applications
have been solicited, and none have been received.  However, an advertisement is
being prepared for publication, and candidates will be sought out.
