 University of British Columbia Library Bulletin
No. 59 January 26, 1971 Vancouver, B.C.
SALARY CHANGES:
The Personnel Office has announced that Library Assistants I and II hired prior to January 1,
1971 will receive their probationary increase now, effective January 1, 1971, and not at the
•end of the usual six months' probationary period.  Moreover, the beginning step has been
^eliminated in all classifications; the salaries of all employees on the first step will go
immediately to the second step.  Enquiries about these changes should be directed to the
responsible person, J. F. McLean, Director of Personnel, Old Administration Building.
CORRECTION:
Bulletin No. 58 was erroneously dated January 12, 1970.  The content, notwithstanding, per-
'tained to this year of grace.
THREE UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES:
On January 8th the three university librarians met in Victoria.  They reviewed the constitution and by-laws of the Five Associated University Libraries of New York, and decided to draw
r.up a similar document for presentation to the respective boards of governors of the universities.  This will probably be done, with a lawyer present, around February 17th.  They reviewed a preliminary version of Mr. Stuart-Stubbs' study of two storage libraries in
^Massachusetts, and intend to have a study made of the possibility of a storage library being
formed for B.C.  They also reviewed the work of the task forces, most of which have met.
The task forces and U.B.C.'s representatives on them are:
Shared Cataloguing:  J. McRee El rod     Coordination of Reference Services: D. Mclnnes
Uniform Classification of Canadian      Selective Dissemination of Information:
Materials:  F. Bailey R. Brongers
Foreign Book Acquisitions: R.Hamilton   Shelf-List Conversion:  G. Dobbin
Collection Gaps:  R. Hamilton Personnel:  E. de Bruijn
Interlibrary Collection Sharing:  D. Mclnnes
Another task force will soon be formed to deal with acquisitions of foreign newspapers
(G. Elliston).  Reports from all task forces are due on March 31st, and the second meeting
of the library administrations will be held on April 22-23rd.
MAIL TO BRITAIN:
It is perhaps worth while reminding readers that no mail is now being accepted in Canada for
transmission to Britain pending settlement of the G.P.O. strike.

work.  Please submit them in writing as soon as possible to any committee member.
MORE VENDING MACHINES:
Machines for dispensing pens and paper have recently been installed in the Library.  For
twenty-five cents, students may obtain either a ball-point pen or a package of loose-leaf
paper without having to visit SUB or the Bookstore.  These units are presently located in
the Main Library (just inside the entrance to Stack Level 5), the Law Library and the Brock
Hall study area.  They are operated by an enterprising U.B.C. law student and are not maintained or serviced by the Library.
ANNUAL VACATIONS:
All staff in public service divisions should be aware of the recently circulated personnel
di rective (#l4a):
1. Because public service divisions are most heavily used between the months of
September and April, the greatest possible number of staff members should be
available during this period; thus vacations are discouraged during the fall
and spring terms, unless they can be taken without damaging the effectiveness
of the division.
2. Annual vacations in the public service divisions should be taken during the
period May through August.  Applications for exceptions to this policy should
be made by the head of the division concerned to the Assistant Librarian for
Public Services.
3. Division heads need not apply for approval of vacations taken between the beginning of May and the end of August.
NEW CONFERENCE ROOM;
A new conference room with a seating capacity of about twenty-five has been constructed in
the north-east corner of the stacks on level 3 (see map). Arrangement for bookings should
be made through the Librarian's Office.
