Postage Machine
A more thorough Investigation has made the installation of a
postage machine at this time seem unwise. The purchase price of this
machine is high, the monthly meter rental charge substantial, and the
expected economies small.
New Personnel Procedures
Mr. Ranz announced that effective immediately the selection
and employment of library personnel will be under the supervision of
Mr. Bell. Division Heads are asked to report vacancies to Mr. Bell,
who will be responsible for securing suitable applicants from the
Personnel Office. Division Heads will continue, as in the past, to
interview the applicants and, in consultation with Mr. Bell, will
recommend new appointments.
Return Addresses on Envelopes
Division Heads are requested to place the name of their Division
on all envelopes going out from their offices. Considerable difficulty
has been encountered of late in returning mail, which has been sent back
to the Library for one reason or another, to the proper Division.
Rental Books Discontinued
The circulation of rental books has dropped steadily in recent
years. At the present time only three books are on loan. Accordingly,
it has been decided to discontinue this service — as soon as the three
books are returned.
Faculty and Staff library cards
The registering of faculty, staff, and visiting faculty
borrowers has been transferred from the Library Office to the Circulation Division Office. Advanced Reference Students to Work at Information Desk
During the weeks of March 25-29, and April 1-5, students
from the School of Librarianship enrolled in Professor Hamilton's
Advanced Reference class will gain' practical experience by working
at the Information Desk with the librarians on duty.
