January 5, I960  No. 207
Reporting Division Heads Fleeting and other Matters of Interest
to University of British Columbia Library Staff.
Present:  NH, SR, RJL, AF1S, EBM, ML, DF, MAT, and. HM.
Christmas Hampers
Fliss Fraser reported that three Christmas hampers,
containing gifts of clothing and a food order, had been made
up and delivered on Christmas Eve by Miss Eleanor Mercer to
Mr. & Mrs. Worseley, Fir. & Firs. McDuffee, and Mrs. Stirrock.
UNIVESITY BUSINESS SURVEY
The University has appointed Wood, Gordon & Co., of
Vancouver, to make a survey of the business, administrative
and physical functions of the University (i.e. its non-
academic aspects). Mr. Walter Gordon will be visiting the
campus next week and Mr. J. Shirley will be doing the survey.
They will visit the Library in the near future, presumably
to study procedures relating to the purchasing and processing,
mainly in Acquisitions and Cataloging Divisions.
THE BUILDING PROGRAM
The work of removing the stairway in the south-east
corner was not entirely completed during the Christmas period,
and there will probably be some intermittent noise from that
quarter during the coming weeks as construction at the top
and bottom of this future elevator well is completed.  Part
of it may be postponed until May after final examinations.
The opening between the Fine Arts Room and the book-
stacks has been made and will be closed with louvers for the
time being.
The "Chinese Wall" has been moved two tiers back and
the books shifted in preparation for the work to be done on
the new ceiling at the south end of level 7.
Fir. William Greco of Luxfer Coi will return this week,
and active work on the bookstacks will be renewed. We still
expect to begin moving into them by July 1.
The construction of the new addition seems to be well
on schedule to be ready in September. COMMITTEE ON BOOK SHIFT
Fir. Basil Stuart-Stubbs, Mr. Bill Bell and Mr.
Leonard Williams will do preliminary work immediately on
planning for the big shift of books into the new stack area.
It seems likely that the whole collection may again be involved
as it was two years ago.
OPENING CEREF10NY
A ceremony is being planned for the opening of the new
wing, perhaps for early October and probably under the sponsorship of the Friends of the Library. Fir. Harlow has been
authorized to invite a speaker, and candidates are being considered.
BIOMEDICAL LIBRARY
Fliss Fraser reported that the duplicates in the Biomedical
Library have now all been checked and removed from level 1, and
the backlog of gifts received over the past eight years. About
500 volumes are ready for processing.
APPRECIATION
Appreciation was expressed to Fir. Bill Bell and
Mr. Leonard Williams for their work in carrying out the shift
of books during the Christmas period, as required for the
remodelling program (on level 7 and in the Fine Arts Room),
PERSONNEL
Resignations
Firs, Edith Cartwright as Clerk I in the Circulation
Division on January 30.
Appointments
Mrs. Mary-Lynne Brolund as Clerk II in the Acquisitions
Division on January 6.

in the Library's history.
