®ie library ia beeeirf.Bg & large sn& complex organization. Over 1T5 staff ranters maintain the lain library
and its three branches, the Woodward Library^ the law
Library and the GurricalKBB laboratory. More branches are
"being planned, Inevitably to such an organisation people
often fail to meet one another and divisions are not
always aware of each others' activities, ®*e staff newsletter BIELOS will attempt to solve a growing problem of
coffinainication, and will carry information of both an
official and non-official nature. Staff members are urged
to submit to members of the editorial committee any news
or announcements they wish to circulate. -2-
We, as a new body, initiating a new means
of library-wide1 communication,, quite simply ask for
help and co-operation in collecting material and in
making .your opinions known,, We welcome both your vi<
and your problems in that we will gladly air them in
/published print, If we can act both as a staff sounc
board and as a news media, we may fulfil some useful
need* Most import ant ly, we smile S

November 23rd, HEADS' MEETING
Senate Library Committee
October 21,64.
The Senate met on October 21st and approved appointment of
the following Senate Library Committee for 196*1—65 ♦
Dean I0M. Cowan; Ghairman
Dr. John Harris
Dr. Malcolm F. McGregor
Dr. Sydney Friedman
Dr. K.C. Mann1
Mr. F.E. Walden
Dr. S. Rothstein
Staff Authors
Mr. Stuart-Stubbs displayed Canadian Book prices current,
1959-62, v. 3,  compiled by Rita Butterfield, and assisted
by R.M. Hamilton. This useful and important work lists the
prices-of Canadiana in recent years. The first two volumes
were compiled by Mr. Hamilton before he came to UBC.
School of Librarianship
The School has requested that its students be scheduled, as
before, to observe at the Information Deskj and next term
to man the desk, under guidance.
On Friday, November 20th, the School will make a field trip
to Victoria, to visit the University of Victoria Library,
Victoria Public Library, the Queen's Printer and the Provin-
cal Library. Librarians who can be spared from their duties
are^ welcome to joint the group-please notify the School
office, local 712. Return fare, approximately J6.00. The
chartered buses will leave-Blanca Loop at 8:00 a.m. and
return on the 7:00 p.m. ferry. . .4-
A draft policy on library units outside the main building,
prepared in 1963* will be worked on again., It is hoped,
after possible revision, to get this statement adopted as
definite University policy.
The architect expects that most of the alterations will be
complete by November 15th, although the work on heating and
ventilation will probably go on until the end of November.,
The new stack entry in the front hall should be ready by
October 26th, and the processing divisions should be reunited
on Floor 7 by November. 2nd. The shelving has only recently
been shipped from England; shelf reading will be completed by
November 15th. Mr.. Bell hopes to convince the University
that a thorough post-construction cleaning, done by ^outside
services, is essential - which it is.
The portraits of chancellors and presidents in the concourse
will be removed to various other locations; the concourse
wings, the new Reserve Book Room, and to the Fine Arts' Room
entry. The portrait of Dr. Sedgewick will be hung in the
College Library, and that collection will be renamed the
Sedgewick Library.
Library notice boards are for our own announcements only,
and occasionally for worthy campus causes. The Librarian
will send a statement of this policy to the Ubyssey. -5-
Mid-Term Break
At its meeting on October 21st, i;he.University Senate
passed a motion approving a-mid-term break, March 4,5,6,
for those Faculties in which a recess would, not. adversely
affect the academic programme. This break would require
cancellation^of lectures and laboratories but would not mean
a closing of'the University. The Librarian asked the
Chairman of Senate (President Macdonald) if the Library was
to be closed. The Chairman of Senate (President Macdonald)
replied to the Librarian that the Library should remain open.
Gifts and Exchanges
The needs of other academic libraries i© the province should
be our first priority in distributing duplicates. In
order to ensure that this is done, Eleanor Mercer will
scrutinize all incoming gifts to establish which items are
suitable for inclusion to academic libraries and which
duplicates should be offered just within the province.
All material taken from the stacks for xeroxing must be
signed out.
Periodicals are wandering! Please! Staff members must sign
out all periodicals - on a Library Use only basis.
Librarians have faculty borrowing privileges HAVE YOU TRIED TO CALL
We offer a preliminary list
of Library locals with additions and changes to be announce!

In this mammoth structure where we work, we have by now
discovered nothing is sacred, or even worse, stable. Unfortunately, a complete scanning of all present and future changes would fill an entire BIBLOS. Therefore, in compromising
fashion, we will mention the newly created departments an'd
introduce the first of a series of write-ups on individual
divisions and libraries,
All maps have been moved to a new area on floor seven, south
wing. The Division will be open from nine to one and two to
five, Monday to Friday. It is hoped to develop closer
"liaison with the Geography Department's map collection in
anticipation that the collections might one day be merged
in better quarters. Personnel of the Division: Maureen
Wilson, Head; Jean Poy^ Library Assistant; two student
assistants., Until next July Miss Wilson will be Working
part time with government documents. N.B-. - The atlases are
remaining on the SSD balcony. -8-

All the government documents which have been housed in the
S@cial Sciences Division are now in a newly created
Government Publications Division on floor 6, in the old Bio-
Medical section. Personnel: Suzanne Dodson, Head; Maureen
Wilson, Librarian, part time; Lorraine Lintner, Library
Assistant ... In addition, three clerks from SSD are
responsible for filing the documents.
For purposes of administration, the Acquisitions Division
has been divided into two sections with distinct.responsibilities.

Our collection covers the life sciences and the medical
sciences. Roughly that restricts us to the fallowing areas:
QH - Natural History (Biology) QP - Physiology
QK - Botany QS - Human Anatomy
QL - Zo®l@gy QT■ - Human Physiology
QU - Bi@chemistry QY - Clinical Pathology
Qv - Pharmacy and Pharmacology QZ - Pathology
QW - Bacteriology SH 1 - 399 - Fisheries
QX - Medical Parasitology W - Medicine, Dentistry
While most books and journals in these classifications
are in the Woodward Library, there are many exceptions, and
specific .questions should be directed to the Information
Desk and Location File in the Main Library before sending
people to the Woodward. As well, it will probably be
simpler to direct people wanting information about, or
requests from the Branch, to Woodward.
The Woodward Memorial Room houses the Woodward Historical Collection (history ®t medicine and science). Ass^ng the
names --©f collections and funds represented .are Wellcome,
Macintosh, and Leake.
