Faculty Manual
A draft of the guide to Library services intended for
faculty was discussed. Two omissions were noted, the campus
delivery service and photocopy service, and minor changes were
suggested. A second draft will be prepared and submitted to some
members of the Library Committee for comment before it is mimeographed for distribution.
Open House
Dr. Rothstein said that a report to the Open House Committee on the Library's plans is due, and Mr. Harlow asked him to
select a committee of staff to work out arrangements for displays
and a schedule of operations.  It is recommended that the Library's own displays be concentrated in the Ridington Room alcove.  It was
agreed that plans should include the privilege of stack access
under general supervision and that students would be allowed to use
the Concourse and stacks for study purposes if they wished during
the Open House period. During the period of preparation (Friday
noon until 5 p.m.) only persons authorized to work on displays will
be admitted to the building.  Some adjustment of working schedules
and a few volunteer hours may be required to cover all day Saturday.
The 1958 Open House is to celebrate the 50th anniversary
of the granting of the University's charter and the Centennial of
the Province.
Howay-Reid Collection
Fliss Smith has prepared a statement of the terms upon
which the Howay-Reid Collection may be used, for circulation to
selected faculty, many of.whom are not familiar with the regulations.
Senate Library Committee
The Library Committee will meet this afternoon to discuss
the Librarian's Annual Report and to make its own recommendations
to Senate. The Report will go before Senate at its meeting on -
December 11.
Appointment in Music
Announcement has been made of the appointment of
Dr. G. Welton Flarquis as Head of the Music Department of the University, beginning June 1,1958. He has been Head of the Flusic Department at Women's College in North Carolina and is now on leave in
Oslo, Norway, on a Fullbright Fellowship. The new appointment
probably presages a considerable development in the music program
of the University.  The Flusic Department will give the courses
required for teacher training in the College of Education, equipping
persons to teach music as one of their subjects in the elementary
and secondary schools; it will offer a curriculum for full-time
music teachers in the schools; and it will give courses for credit
and leading to one or more degrees in the Faculty of Arts. These
varied offerings will probably develop gradually.  Professor Adaskin
will continue as Professor of Music and resident musician, his
present position.  It is anticipated that many persons in the
community will contribute to the development of a School of Music,
through the backing of the Community Arts Council.

Library bulletin, "Viewpoint," is a memorial to the late Mr. Robinson. w-
