Though it wasn't my reason for wanting to attend,
deny that its location in Geneva gave the International

Microfilm Association conference In Washington, D.C. an
seen the location for that conference go on from there
and thence to Detroit I couldn't believe that something
as the United Nations Symposium would actually be held
lovely a spot.  (My sincere apologies to those who like
N.Y., N.Y., and Detroit.  I'm sure lots of people do bu

The main meetings were divided into three panels of which I
chose the one devoted to the acquisition and organization of UuN.
material.  This was a very lucky choice from a physiological point
of view because my panel held its deliberations in the Executive
Board Room of the World Health Organization building and smoking
is not permitted in this room.  All you non-smokers who have endured
endless meetings where you were sure you'd either coma out having
suffered permanent brain dameige from lack of oxygen or having been
turned into something akin to a kippered herring, or both, will
know what I mean.  Our meetings were not for those with weak
constitutions.  Unlike most conferences I've attended these meetings,"
went from 9 a.m. until 12:30, with no breaks for smoking or,anything
else.  They resumed at 2 p.m. and continued until 6 p.m. „//'
On the second day we were entertained at a cocktail     AA
party at the beautiful Restaurant des Eaux Vives        Will
in the old section of the city by the Mayor '\\ p,?\
of Geneva, Mme. Lise Girardin, and other \ % A A
officials.  After sittine for three \   \ 1\\

hour in a very piercing wind until      r   <■
the officials had all arrived and the l
party could begin.  That took stamin^1
By the titie we got t'o  the food and drink, it
was about 7:00 p.m. and the group fell on the table like
a horde of locusts.  Apart from the physical strain I must admit
that the party was lovely.  The food was gorgeous to behold and
tasted just as good as it looked and the drinks lacked neither
quality nor quantity;/
Apart from this one. bit of frivolity everything else was
business.  During the three days we  actually did have two coffee
breaks but the coffee wasn't free and breaks were very short.  My
group discussed a number of points, including the status of
depository libraries, claiming procedures, cataloguing and
classifying, methods of organizing collections, and the U.N.'s
plan to start producing its publications on microfiche.  The
latter point was enthusiastically endorsed by everyone.
n i t- I met many interesting people at the Symposium and this
was one of the more enjoyable benefits I derived.  In addition
I came away with, amongst other things, an excellent bibliography on the documentation of the U.N. and other international •
organizations which was for sale by the Symposium, a great stack
of working papers which, when we've finished ploughing through
them, should provide a lot of useful 'inside' information about
the U.N. and its publications, and the comforting feeling that,
in contrast with other collections of U.N. materials, ours compa-
very favourably both in the extent of the collection and, perhaps
almost more important, in the extent to which it is used.

LIBRARIES ASSOCIATION 63RD ANNUAL
CONFERENCE, BOSTON, JUNE 4-8,1972.
Impressions from my first lergs conference (2200 registrants)
are many and varied.  Here are  a  few selected highlights.
The First General Session provided a vivid illustrations
of a communication gap on the burning issue of equal opportunity.  The keynote address was given by Dr. Leon Sullivan, a
Eaptist minister and the founder of QIC, Opportunities Industrialization Center, which has over ninety branches in the
U.S. and abroad to create jobs and better conditions for minority peoples.  Dr. Sullivan is also the first black American
to bs on the Boerd of Directors of General Motors.  It was
interesting to  experience ai   first hand the contrast between
the fervent heat of the evangelist's dire predictions of blaod
flowing in the streets by the year 2000 unless the whits establishment, libraries included, provides thousands of jobs immediately for blacks, and the coolness  of ths reception on the
part of a largely government or business library-oriented
audience that obviously felt the exhortat ion and  warning to ba
misdirected or the passionate oratory distasteful.
Although not an SLA member, I had been attracted t
conference primarily by the joint meeting of Special Li
and the American Mathematical Society which was set up
publications and other matters arising txot, qusstionnai
eut to mathematics and science librarians,, While not p
much new information, it was a good opportunity to refr
knowledge of various aspects of mathematical literature
publication. - Incidentally, it became obvious how few "
o the
brerisr
to die:
JSh ny

conference requests for information.  There wars not er

IFLA 1972
The 1972 annual meeting of the International Federation of
Library Associations met in Budapest in late August to early September. At the forefront of attention at both the plenary sessions
and the University Library sessions was the educational role of
the book in keeping with 1972 being International Book Year.
I hope that it is not prejudice which makes me think that the
Committee on Cataloguing - the part of the conference which drew
me to the meeting and the group with which I am concerned as a merro;
of a committee of CLA - accomplished as much if not more than other
sections.  Certainly it is in the nitty gritty of describing books
for catalogues that the greatest amount of duplicated effort can be
avoided through cooperation and coordination.
The Committee continues to concern itself with the problems of
developing nations.  The International Standard Bibliographic Descrip
tion (ISBD) has been accepted by a variety of national bibliographic
centres, greatly reducing the repetitive redescription of items in
according to differing national practices.
One of the major concerns this year was the development of an
ISBD for serials.  A proposed ISBDS was presented which formed the
basis of critiques made by several including me.  Jean Lunn plans
to hold a Canadian meeting on the ISBDS in order to present a
coordinated commentary.  The most frequently voiced criticism was
its lack of conformity to the already accepted practices of the
ISBD.
Another concern was the arrangement under voluminou- authors,
a working paper being presented.  John Gray and I will comment on
this proposal based on the UBC experience with this problem,
A future concern will be filing in general, particularly under
the impact of mechanization.  I am forwarding Ann Turner and my work-
on this subject and suggesting that Ann would have much to contribute
as the project continues.
The continuity of my attendance at IFLA for three years now has been of cumulative value to me, particularly since so many at
the cor.f.srence are there only one year primarily as tourists.
A continuing valuable side result id the opportunity to examine
other libraries of differing traditions.  Although Canada's library
practices are firmly in the American tradition, some practices of
bar national library and some Quebec libraries are closer to the
European tradition-  She has the opportunity of drawing on two traditions  to produce a more useful library organisational pattern, as
well as convey the values of each to the other.
Increasingly in both Eastern and Western Germany, books are
;g arranged by accession number within size categories.  Since
;sed order no longer exists on the shelf, added importance is
•ched to the classed catalogue.  Dr. Joachim Dietze of East
;any's Uriiversitats und Landeesbibliothek, Sachen-Anhalt,reported
; its newly created classed catalogue was used by forty per cent
.Ms patrons.  The older alphabetic author or title (not author
title as in North America) was used by sixty per cent, and its
'.abatic subject catalogue has been long established, frequently
:ne on.iy sup jcct catalogue.
Some libraries have established helpful and friendly catalogue
information services.  This true of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek
in Munich, a library of three million volumes giving same day delivery
of requested books,  Its public service staff is friendly and helpful
catalogues are easilv accessible.

The Technical'University of Budapest is one of the betteror-
sd otscern European collections.  Its 13,000 students are served

an institution or fewer students than its sister and concerned with the humanities and
professions.  This was the oldest functioning catalogue seen.
(Entry for all offices is under place; thus the U.S. Dart, of
State is under Washington, Not U.S.)
Some libraries have almost inaccessible-catalogues because
of the limited number of hours the "catalogue rooms'1 are open,
such as the university at Heidelberg and Munich, they being open
only four hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon
plus one evening per week.
Some libraries have a multiplicity of alphabetic catalogues.
a newT file representing a change in cataloguing practice,  The
young German National Library in Frankfurt which collects books
published in Germany and in German elsewhere since 1945 already
has three alphabetic catalogues representing as many changes in
rules.  Like the university libraries, bocks are arranged In
accession order within size categories.  The subject approach to
its two million volumes is through computer subject Index printouts .
Unlike many North American universities, European ones
frequently make tasteful and serviceable adaptation of older
buildings.  Heidelberg is an outstanding example of this.

The collections of public libraries in
more than those of the universities tend to
objectives of the state.  One small public library, for example,
had one-half shelf in 200 (religion) to one and cne-hal.t shelves
in 100 (philosophy) with the latter being  largely Marxist.
The collection included the complete works of Marx, Engels and
Lenin but no Bible or Biblical commentary.
I am' very appreciative of the assistance which made it
possible for me to be challenged by achievements which outstrip
our own, and to realize our good fortune through seeing librarian
labouring under limitations we could hardly imagine.
