Assembling Complete Files of Journals for Binding
The Serials Division continues to have difficulty in
assembling complete files' of journals for binding. The journals
relating to books and librarianship constitute a particular*
problem. Division Heads were requested to keep these issues
moving through their areas as rapidly as possible.
Standing Orders for Publications
For many years the Library has followed the usual
procedure of placing standing orders for all of the publications
of certain large organizations such as the Library Association
(England), Canadian Library Association, Canadian Institute of
International Affairs, American Library Association, etc.
Although this practice has proved quite satisfactory for the
serial publications of these organizations, it has been less
successful for those items published separately. Dr. Rothstein
suggested that in some instances the standing order with the
organization itself might be discontinued in favor of an order
for the same publications with an agent in the immediate area.
Visit to Eastern Libraries by Mr. Stuart-Stubbs
Mr. Stuart-Stubbs reported briefly on his visit to
Eastern libraries during June and July to examine their collections of early maps on Canada. He was especially impressed with
the richness of the holdings in the Public Archives in Ottawa.
While at Harvard University, Mr. Stuart-Stubbs had
occasion to talk with Mr. Edwin Williams concerning his recent
survey of the holdings of Canadian university libraries in the
humanities and social sciences. The report will be published
by the national government shortly.
Survey of Canadian Medical Libraries
Miss Fraser reported that Miss Beatrice Simon,
Assistant Librarian of McGill University, was on campus recently
In connection with the survey she is making of Canadian medical
libraries, sponsored by the Association of Canadian Medical
Colleges and the Committee of Medical Science Libraries of the
Canadian Library Association.
