MINUTES *K
July 11,   1957.        No.  156
Reporting Division Heads Meetings and Other Matters of Interest
to University of British Columbia Library Staff
Present: NH, SR, AMS, MML, RJL, EBM, MAA, DF, EF.
Summer Session Enrollment
Summer Session enrollment is 3200 in the credit courses
and 300 in Extension Department non-credit courses.
New Salary Scales
New salary scales for the professional and clerical
staff went into effect on July 1. The clerical staff, with the
exception of those recently appointed, received a double step in
the new scale.
The professional staff have been appointed as "academic
professional" and are now entitled to join the superannuation and
group insurance plans of the University immediately upon joining
the staff. Holiday for this group, earned by service in the year
commencing June 1, 1957, will be one month.
Promotions
Miss Priscilla Scott and Mr. Noel Oweiis have been
promoted to Librarian II. The positions occupied by Miss Dorothy
Rolfe in the Circulation Division and Mrs. Roberta Brigden in the
Librarian's office have been reclassified as Clerk II and ..
Fliss Rolfe and Firs. Brigden promoted accordingly. The position
of the "mail clerk" has been placed in a new category, Shipper,
which is in effect a promotion for Mr. John MacDonald. A new
category of Senior Library Assistant has been approved, to which
Firs. Frances Tucker and Fliss Eleanor Cock have been promoted.
Bookstack Completed
The large addition to the bookstack has been completed
(and paid for!). The book stock has been re-arranged and, except
for minor details, the new Loan-Serials service desk has been
finished.
Loan-Serials Service Desk
Fir. Harlow asked how the new arrangement is working
out, and Miss Lanning replied that there are a few awkward
features, chiefly the problem of having one person serve both at
Windows 1 and 2, and poor acoustics which prevent people in the
waiting area from hearing when their books are called. Mr. Harlow
suggested that it may be necessary to provide more staff at 2
peak periods when the new set-up has been given a fair trial, and
that an electric Call board may be needed.
Serials has not had a very heavy public demand for
service as yet, and it may be that the location of the Kardex will
need to be changed.
Biomedical
The Biomedical reading room in its new position on
level 6 has new lighting and improved facilities. The arrangement
of the public desk has been settled upon but the office area is not
yet arranged. A system is being devised whereby borrowers leaving
the Biomedical area via the main stack portal can show that they
have charged out certain materials before reaching the stack exit.
On the whole, faculty seem pleased with the new arrangements,
although there is some glare under the new lighting.
The.Biomedical Branch at the Vancouver General Hospital
has moved into new quarters in the Faculty of Medicine wing there
and has been much commended by visitors. For the moment the
Branch is without a direct telephone line and calls should go to
the Hospital, Em. 3211, and a reouest be made for the Biomedical
Library.
Telephones
Requests are being made for a number of new telephone
lines and extensions: the changes required for the Loan Desk,
Serials, and Biomedicine, separate lines for■Acquisitions and
Cataloguing, Loan Desk and Extension Library, and Fine Arts Room
and Reserve Book Room.
Stack Direction Notices
Miss Smith remarked that the yellow stack direction
cards are the best the Library has had and are beautifully done.
Tha Loan Desk staff are to be congratulated. It is thought that
'such directions would be useful in a few more locations, too, and
these are being prepared.
Janitors
Mr. Gallie has done a first-rate job of cleaning the new
stack areas and in assisting in getting the Biomedical reading
room into use on short notice. It is noted, also, that Mr. Brown,
the night janitor, has been alert and conscientious.
Reference, Fine Arts, and Sedgewick Rooms
The Ridington Reference Room will be open Monday through
Thursday until 9 p.m. and on Friday till 5 p.m., observing the same
hours as the Loan Desk. The Fine Arts and Sedgewick Rooms will be
open daily from 12 noon to 5 p.m. 3 9J
Mr. Ian McNairn to Art Gallery
Mr. Ian McNairn, born in Toronto and educated in
Canadian, American and French universities, has been appointed to '.
the Fine Arts Department.  During Mr. Binning's absence he is acting
as Curator of the University Art Gallery.
Mr. Walter Lanning to Join College of Education
Mr. Walter Lanning, librarian of the Vancouver Technical
School, will join the College of Education to supervise the use of
the Curriculum Laboratory and to teach a course in librarianship
during the Winter Session. He will also be concerned in the building up of a model school library for demonstration teaching purposes.
"Know Your Library"
Copy for the 1957/58 edition of this leaflet is in the
hands of the Extension printing department.
Stack Access in Summer Session
Stack access is being granted to all students registered
in Summer Session and to 1956/57 Winter Session students who are
on the campus and can produce their library cards. The Loan Desk
staff at the stack portal are requesting that cards be shown as a
precaution against unauthorized persons entering.
New Library Identification Cards for 1957/58
Cards for the coming session are being printed. There
will be two colors to distinguish between the two major categories
of library users, and a mimeographed explanation of the privileges
attaching to each will be distributed to service desks.
Meeting of Professional Staff
A meeting of the professional library staff has been
called by Mr. Harlow for Friday afternoon at 4:30 to discuss plans
for the winter.
Fleeting of Medical Library Committee
The Library Committee of the Faculty of Medicine met
with the Dean of Fledicine and the Biomedical Librarian recently to
review the present serials subscription list and other matters.
Professor Cooke in Italy
Mr. Harlow received a letter recently from Professor Cooke
who has been on leave of absence from the History Department.
Fir. Cooke has bought material, chiefly in Africa where he spent some
months, for the University Library. He is now in Italy en route
home. Visitors
A.number of librarians have visited the University
recently in connection with the Ford Foundation-sponsored Survey of
Library Facilities in the Pacific Northwest, among them Professor
Hecht from Pullman, who is interested in research materials in the
biological sciences and Dr. Seymour Weiner of the University of
Washington, whose field is the humanities. Dr. William Harbold,
