 University of British Columbia Library Bulletin
No. 9 September 19, 1968 Vancouver, B.C.
Work in the Librarian's Office this week is tending to centre on the Annual Report to
the Senate which, as anyone who has read one must know, is not only a history of where
we have been but also a reasoned statement of where we are going, and what we will need
to get there. It involves all of us, really.
**********
ACQUISITIONS DIVISION - Automation Report;
The automation program which we outlined in the Bulletin of August 30th (no.7) has now
moved into step two. As of September 16, all blanket/approval order books and gifts are
being typed on the Flexowriter and are therefore appearing in the printed "On order/in
process" listing together with the regular orders.
TRAFFIC AND PARKING - A Reminder;
The plan to close off all the East Mall, which runs behind the Library between University
Boulevard and Crescent Road, is stili scheduled to take effect on Monday, September 23rd.
On that morning remember to approach the parking lot by turning off either Chancellor
or University Blvd. onto the new Wesbrook Annex.
Library staff members who must drive up to the Shipping Entrance may obtain temporary
permits by applying to Mrs. Maclver in the Librarian's Office. Three of these permits
have been given to the Library by the Traffic Office for use in special circumstances.
HUMANITIES and INFORMATION Divisions:
These divisions are now operating out of their new quarters, but the telephones have
not yet been linked up with their rightful owners. At the risk of being out of date
by the time this is in print we offer the following temporary phone numbers;
Mr. Chew (2274); Information Desk and Inter-Library Loans (2411); Humanities (272>)
NEW BUILDINGS;
The Senate Committee on Academic Building Priorities has requested a report from
the Library. Mr. Watson and Mr. Stuart-Stubbs, already engaged in the revision of the
1966 document, A Plan for Future Library Service, quickly assembled a resume* of their
work for review by the Senate Library Committee on September 16.
BOOK PROCESSING COSTS at UBC;
Mr. Watson has just made some calculations which should be of interest not only to
those in the technical processing divisions. The average total processing cost for all
books is $6.4o; for those requiring original cataloguing, $9«70; and those for which
LC cards are available, $4.20.
These figures were estimated roughly by adding up the amounts spent on salaries,
equipment and supplied in each of the Divisions concerned and dividing the grand total
by the number of books processed. UBC Library Bulletin
BIBLOS - "Eight Writers in Search of an Editor"
- page 2
If anyone is interested in taking on the job of editing the Library's monthly magazine,
BIBLOS, Shannon McJannet in the Cataloguing Division is the person to see.
U.B.C. LIBRARY NEWS - New Editor;
The editorship of this newsletter, which first appeared in August as an information
service for faculty, has been transferred to Mrs. de Bruijn of the Information and
Orientation Services Division. Future issues of the News will focus on specific topics,
such as Reading Rooms, Sedgewick Library, Loan Regulations, etc. The physical format
also will be improved through the use of a self-justifying typewriter similar to that
which now produces This Week at UBC.
