$5 STUDENT SPECIAL
To promote student use of the Library's COMPUTER ASSISTED BIBLIOGRAPHIC SERVICES,
a special student rate of five dollars per search will be in effect until the end of March.
Many indexes to periodicals, books, statistical series, research grants and projects are now available "on-line".    Instead of looking through three shelves full of
Dissertation Abstracts for example, a researcher can ask a librarian to check the equivalent
computer file for his subject.    In relatively little time, the computer will print out a
relevant list of abstracts.
Students showing a UBC library card and paying five dollars in cash, can have any
single data base (except Medline) searched to produce a custom bibliography.    They may
use up to fifteen search terms and may retrieve up to 50 citations off-line.
Lists of available data bases have been printed for the Social Sciences, Physical
Sciences, Engineering/Technology, Biological Sciences, and the Health Sciences.    Potential
customers should come to the appropriate reference division.
BCUC PROGRESSING WELL
Seven libraries to date have agreed to join the British Columbia Union Catalogue project
(UBC, UVic, SFU, BCIT, VCC, Douglas, and Richmond Public).    Each will create its own data base
and will decide how to access the information (cards, microfiche, on-line terminals).    A preliminary version of the Union Catalogue (computer output microfiche) will come out in March.
The purpose of this preliminary version is to give people something to look at and   react to.
It will consist of the holdings of SFU and BCIT that have been entered on the UT/LAS catalogue
support system.    UBC will begin to use the system as soon as facilities are in place.
Decisions regarding BCUC are made by three committees:    Users (2 members from each
library), Management (head librarians), and Standards.    The project office, run by Paul Baldwin
and Lynn Rosen, carries out the Committee decisions.    Basil Stuart Stubbs, Bob MacDonald, and
Mac Elrod represent UBC on the three committees.
SENATE LIBRARY COMMITTEE
Peter Larkin, Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, was elected Chairman of the
Senate Library Committee on January 12th.    He is the third Chairman in thirty years:
Malcolm McGregor held the post from 1969 to April  1977;    Ian McTaggart Cowan was Chairman
from 1947 to 1969.
The Committee must approve all major Library policy decisions such as the
establishment of a new branch library, changes in loan regulations,   or re-allocation of
the collections budget.
CLA MEMBERSHIP DRIVE
Now is your chance to join the Canadian Library Association.    Membership is open to
library employees at any level.    Annual dues range from $10 to $55.    Forms are available
from Lee Ann, I&O, Main Library.
RECON PROJECT IN LIMBO
The Library's major project to convert the location file from a card catalogue to a
computer file is temporarily in suspension while possible funding for conversion of the entire
catalogue is explored.    Work is continuing on the conversion of serial  records; monographic
records up to "AV" will be converted.
For the time being, the location file card catalogue is being kept up to date; no
drawers have been withdrawn. DOUGLAS COLLEGE COURSES FOR LIBRARY STAFF
