BOARD OF GOVERNORS SAYS 'YES' TO NEW LIBRARY BUILDING
Plans for a new main library building on the site of
the current structure have now been approved by UBC's Board
of Governors and sent on for consideration to the
Universities Council of British Columbia.
A model of the proposed building will be on display
towards the end of February in the glass case near Ridington
Room in the Main Library. The plans call for replacing the
wings and the stacks of the Main Library with a more modern,
more efficient, and safer structure. The heritage core of
the building would be retained. Additional space would be
created underground in the area between Main and Sedgewick.
The best thing about the plan is that important people
on campus seem to like it. It has been approved by a wide  -^,
variety of committees. Now the big question is money —    ^y*
$48,565,000 in January 1981 dollars. Will the Universities  H
Council and the Ministry of Universities find adequate funds
in their coffers? Stay tuned for more on this exciting
drama.

NEW COMMITTEES
A new library committee has been formed to respond to a provocative
report from the President's Office called "Looking Beyond." The report
delineates the need for better support services for the increasing numbers
o°f mature and part time students earning degrees at UBC. The committee,
chaired by Elizabeth Black, must decide how library services should change
in response to the changes in the character of the student population.
Committee members are Elsie de Bruijn, Rita Butterfield, Lyn Currie, Pat
Dunn, Marilyn Dutton, Mary Mitchell, Margaret Friesen, and Doug Mclnnes.
A committee has also been formed to assist the library administration
in making decisions on the structure and organization of a new central
library. For example, should there be one huge stack area? Or should fine
arts materials, for instance, be in a separate sequence? Should bound and
current periodicals be shelved together? Should all periodicals be
anchored? Should microforms be split by subject? Is a separate audio-visual
department needed? Committee members charged with weighing these heavy
matters are: Rein Brongers, Rita Butterfield, Lois Carrier, Suzanne Dodson,
Melva Dwyer, Ture Erickson, Chuck Forbes, Howard Hurt, Doug Mclnnes, Joan
Sandilands, Bill Watson (chairman), and Anne Yandle.
A third committee is meeting weekly to work on UBC's Interim Authority
System (a verification system). Chaired by Don Dennis, committee members
include Freda Bailey, Gerry Dobbin, Bill Ng, Brian Owen, Lynn Rosen, and
Patrick Willoughby. A working verification system may be in place by the
summer. NEW FACES/NEW PLACES
Karen Olcen is now in charge of the Curriculum/Audio-Visual Unit in
Catalogue Records. She has an undergraduate degree in French from the
University of Manitoba, a BLS from the University of Alberta, and a MLS
from UBC.
Two regular appointments will begin in Woodward May 1st: Pat Lysyk _>
will replace Johann Van Reenen and Florence Doidge will replace Doug Dewar.
Pat will receive her MLS from UBC this spring. She received a Bachelor of
Science in Nursing from the University of Saskatchewan and has several
years experience in nursing. Florence has an MLS from UBC as well as an
undergraduate degree in biology and zoology from the University of
Victoria; she is currently working in Woodward on a temporary appointment.
And finally look for Tom Shorthouse in China beginning September 1981.
He will spend a year investigating the state of law collections in China.
During his absence Nick Omelusik will be Acting Law Librarian (as well as
head of Reading Rooms Division.) A part time librarian will be recruited to
continue Tom's collection development work.
ABBREVIATIONS IN THE MICROCATALOGUE
A few abbreviations have crept into the microcatalogue — lest there
be any doubt, here is the code:
Rdg. Rm.   Reading Room
Div.   Division
Ctr.   Centre
Pretty painless, right?
THEOLOGY CARD CATALOGUE IN MAIN CONCOURSE
U
Lonesome for an old fashioned card catalogue? Feast your eyes on the
latest addition to the Main Concourse. Right after Location File "Z's" is
an author/title catalogue of new acquisitions (1980 on) in the Vancouver
School of Theology Library. 1978/9 VST acquisitions are in the
Microcatalogue. Acquisitions from the olden days (before 1978) are in the
UBC card catalogue. The new catalogue contains such gems as:

KNOWLEDGE NETWORK: SOPHISTICATED TV
This network is not (repeat not) a new arm of the Interlibrary Loan
Division. Knowledge Network is the name of British Columbia's new
educational television network. Now you can move to the Interior and still
be assured of your quota of high brow lectures. You can even earn credits
for a degree through the good services of the Open Learning Institute (call
270-8021 to learn more about this — courses on business management are
expected to start in May). In the Vancouver area you need a TV set that
gets UHF (a converter to do this costs about $40) plus a cable. A schedule
and a program guide will be posted in the staff rooms of LPC and of Main
Library.
HUGGING IS IN
January's "Felicter" (a publication of the Canadian Library
Association) offers a report that students who are physically touched by
library staff as their books are checked out have warmer, more positive
feelings about the library than those who are not touched. Moreover, a
librarian inspired by the study offered herself as a hug therapist and,
well ... started a trend. The next question is: Should our new building
have a hugging station next to the book checkout?

GOOD  NEWS  ABOUT AMPERSANDS
Remember  that  fascinating pink bulletin you got  last month on  filing
rules   (no.   158)?  Please cut  & paste the  following change on page  1 and
correct  the chart  on page  4.  Thank you.
3.    "&"  FILES "AND."    Ampersands (&)  now file as the word "and" regardless of the
language of the title.    This is particularly nice if the title is in English.    If the
title is in Swedish, Italian, German -- never mind, it's progress.    In the card catalogue
"&"  files as "and" only in English, but "et" in French,
etc.    Such elegance!
