*Rick Welch received the most votes in this category.  However, since both
he and Shirley Halladay represent the same division, Rick decided that,
rather than have a new election, he would step down in favour of Gwen.  The
terms of reference were not clear on this point, but will be clarified before next year's election.
To provide continuity, the outgoing committee will supply an advisory member to the new committee.
The Administrative Resources Committee wishes to express its gratitude to all nominees for
allowing their names to stand for election, and its thanks to all staff who participated.

BOOKS ON TAPE FOR THE BLIND:
A grant of $27,000 for the reading of books on to tape for blind and partially-sighted
students has recently been approved by the Local Initiatives Programme of the Department of Manpower and Immigration.  Sponsored by the North Shore Unitarian Church Social Responsibility Committee and directed by Mc Elrod, Paul Thiele and Ann Turner, the project will utilize the facilities of the Crane Library for the Blind.
Eight paid readers with subject and language specialties^ will supplement the Crane Library^ regular volunteer reader programme until May 31, 1972.  It is expected that they will
read approximately 400 books.  The grant includes funds for the production and distribution of
a printed catalogue of the tapes created by this project as well as of the others already in
the Crane Library collection.  All tapes will be available for nation-wide loan. *--.

INTERLIBRARY LOANS:
Forms may be handed in at any appropriate reference division or at the I.L.L. Office, or,
at week-ends and in the evenings, at the Information Desk.
Inter library loan requests from undergraduates may be accepted if a book is still missing
from the stacks after having been traced for a week or if a book is in the bindery and cannot be
retrieved.  No faculty signature is required for a request of this nature nor for one seeking
material from the Center for Research Libraries.  However, it would be appreciated if the Inter-
library Loan form be signed by the person receiving the request, so that I.L.L. staff may know
whom to contact should further information be needed.
"HOLDINGS CARDS" IN THE AUTHOR - TITLE CATALOGUE:
It was recently suggested that, when filing revisers find holdings cards still outstanding
in the Author-Title Catalogue, they transfer them to the Location File after lining out the
"Continued on next card" note on the (preceding) unit card.  However, some Public Services
personnel feel that the "For holdings see Location File" note is essential and the plan has
therefore been abandoned.
The new procedure is for such holdings cards to be taken to Claudia Kerr in Catalogue
Maintenance, together with the unit (main entry) card which precedes it.  Claudia will have a
revised set of cards made on which the holdings note will appear.
LONG CUTTER NUMBERS:
The Library of Congress has recently been having recourse to increasingly longer Cutter
numbers.  These create the dual problem of running into the title paragraph on cards and failing
to fit on the spines of books.
For the time being, where a Cutter exceeds five characters (letters and digits combined) it
will be broken up by the use of the letter 'X' preceding the sixth character.  This !X' Cutter
will then be placed on the next line.  Should such a procedure result in three Cutter numbers
instead of the regulation maximum of two, these will be permitted.
E.g. AB AB
1234     BUT      1234
C5678 C5678
1971 X9
1971
Exception: Where an over-long Cutter number stems from a L.C. scheduled table, it will
not be converted by the insertion of an 'X1, regardless of the unfortunate results to cards and
book.
The question is still open.  Other suggestions have included a hyphen (Circulation felt
that shelvers would not understand this) and a decimal point (Information Desk representatives
believed that this might cause students to interpret the preceding number as a whole number).
Comments should be made to Rita Butterfield, Meg Little or Mc El rod.
BAMFIELD MARINE STATION:
Work is to start soon on the new marine biological station at Bamfield on the west coast
of Vancouver Island, which will serve as a teaching station for UBC, SFU, UVic, U of A and U
of Calgary.  The UBC Library has agreed to catalogue the books (initially some 450) for their
library which they hope to have ready by June 1972.  For our processing purposes the Bamfield
library will be treated as a branch of the UBC system, its holdings will be recorded in our
catalogue, and its abbreviation will be !Bamf.
It is interesting to note that Graham Elliston!s father was stationed for some ten years
in this selfsame building on behalf of Cables £- Wireless Ltd., and Graham has happy memories of
much of his youth spent there.
CAMPUS LIGHTING:
Standards of lighting are being upgraded at many points on campus.  Among the areas
scheduled for special floodlighting is the path to the parking 1ott along the south end of
Brock Hal 1.
MICROFORM ANALYTICS IN CATALOGUE:
4
At the request of Searching (duplicates v/ere being ordered) and Government Publications,
analytics are being put in the catalogue for items included in the major microform set Early
English Books 1641-1700 (Wing).  There will be analytics for author, title (by highlighting),
anonymous titles, and added entries for personal and corporate names in anonymous  titles.  This
major project is being undertaken as time allows, so it will be some time before all items are
represented.  U of Vic is sharing the searching task involved in establishing entries, and one
copy of each card is being sent there.  SFU does not own the set.
TITLE ADDED ENTRIES IN THE AUTHORITY FILE:
From now on main entries will no longer be lined out for title added entry cards.  The
t i 11es will be highlighted instead.(in this file only).
