Cover design by Robert R. Reid The Report of the University Librarian to the Senate
On Becoming a Research Library... The shape of things to come
for the University of British Columbia Library is easily foreseen.  Its record of growth and its continuing responsibilities
assure its eventual development Into a large research library.
In 1960/61 the University Library took two long steps into its
future; the collections passed the half-million mark, and the
creation of the subject divisions provided the organizational
basis for service in depth.
The fine, round number of 500,000 (achieved this summer)
gives an unaccustomed visibility to the state of the book
stock. Normally collections grow up all but Imperceptibly
and only the cataloguer's statistics mark the cumulative
effects of daily acquisitions.  In 1960/61 the University
Library came 37,556 volumes closer to its goal of excellence;
the size of the collection at the end of the fiscal year was
489,926 volumes.
These figures compare favorably to the preceding year's
32,951 volumes added and total of 452,370, but the Increase
warrants no smugness. The gain is almost wholly attributable
to the growth of the College Library (11,093 volumes). The
net increment of new titles, as distinguished from volumes
added, proceeded, in fact, at a somewhat lesser rate than
before. New periodical subscriptions, to cite a telling example,,came to only 193 this year, as contrasted with 272
in the preceding period.
This slackening pace directly reflects the effects of a
fiscal setback which saw the Library's book funds from all
sources held pretty well static ($236,884 as against $221,534).
In a period of constantly rising book prices, more input is
regularly needed to produce the same output. The devaluation
of the Canadian dollar aggravated the problem.
Fortunately, the Library's acquisitions do not derive
solely from purchases or University appropriations. Notable
contributions of funds were again received from such regular
friends of scholarship as Mr. Walter C. Koerner (Slavonic
studies, humanities); Dr. H. R. MacMillan (forestry, history);
the Leon and Thea Koerner Foundation (Asian studies, literature,
history, and law); the Otto Koerner Memorial Fund (fine arts);
the Men's Canadian Club of Vancouver (Canadiana); the Institute
of Chartered Accountants of B. C (accounting); the B. C.
Association of Broadcasters (communications); and Frank W.
Horner Ltd. (pharmacology).
To this roll of honour are to be added this past year's
new and welcome names: the Anne S. Campbell Estate (the Osier
Collection); the Pacific Division of the Canadian Jewish
Congress (Judaica); the Frederick Townsend Estate (international relations); the Wellcome Fund (history of science
and medicine); the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (physiotherapy); the Canada Council (Slavonic studies).
For a library, books make common currency with dollars,
and in 1960/61 the collections were substantially enriched by
the following donations of impartant research materials:
Mrs. Leonard R. Andrews (the Tolmie papers); Mrs. Henry F.
Angus (first editions of Christina Rossetti); Mrs. Henry Bulwer
(English literature and history); the late Henry Doyle
(Canadiana); Mrs. H. A. Dyde (the Alan B. Plaunt papers);
Mr. Neal Harlow (Callforniana); the late Robert Allison Hood
(personal papers); the Japan-Canada Society (fine arts and
gardening); Mr. Walter C Koerner (rare Bibles); Dr. H. R.
MacMillan (history and Canadiana); Mr. Justice Norris (military
trials); the Honourable Frank Ross (periodical files); Dr. W. N.
Sage (history); the late T. L. Thacker (biological sciences);
the Ukrainian Book Society (Ukrainian literature and history).
Through the good offices of Professor W. Holland, the University Library also acquired the collection formed by the Institute
of Pacific Relations, a fine working library of some 5,200
volumes on Asian studies.
An acquisition of international interest was neither
purchase nor gift. The four Shakespeare Folios, ..a collector'.s
dream, came to the University as a permanent loan from the
famous Folger Library of Washington.
When friends and benefactors bring such good tidings, it
is only fair to let joy break in. The University Library can now boast of a substantial and youthful collection, strong at
the points of greatest need (periodical files, standard works,
reference sets) and with little of the deadwood that encumbers
the shelves of older libraries. It is certainly a far better
library than its size alone would indicate.
But these reports, by tradition and design, stress needs
more than accomplishments. The University Library will be
truly adequate only when it provides in large measure the
materials needed for advanced study by its own faculty; it
will be distinguished only when its resources attract scholars
from other institutions. Even the lesser goal is not yet in
sight, and the next half-million volumes must come quickly on
the heels of the first.
Services and Facilities
In matters library, demand apparently follows supply.
When the new Walter C. Koerner wing made available attractive
accomodation for another thousand students, seemingly double
that number came to take advantage of it. The College Library
expanded its book stock and circulation mounted at a proportionate rate. The subject divisions offered a more extensive
reference service and the demands for assistance grew in scope
and depth.
The heavy use of the Library was visible and audible;
visitors from other universities have invariably described it as unusually high. No formal count of attendance was made,
but the staff's impression is that 90$ of the seats were occupied right up until 5 o'clock.
With some 1,500 students in the building during most hours
of the day and several hundred coming and going at the end of
every class period, noise inevitably continued to be a problem.
However, the employment of a commissionaire did much to reduce
distractions and decibels, while the removal of the public
catalogue to the concourse area alleviated the congestion outside the Ridington Room, Interestingly enough, some of the
reading rooms (Humanities, Science, and Special Collections),
by a self-induced policing on the part of the students who
used them, established a pattern of customary quiet. All in
all, the noise problem has been, could be, worse.
Statistics of circulation confirm the influence of augmented collections and Improved facilities. Total issues
through the Circulation Division rose by 19$ over 1959/60
(391,355 vs. 328,142); of these, the College Library accounted
for about one fifth. It is perhaps more significant to note
that issues of "reserve books" declined by 26$ as students,
particularly in the College Library, were provided with enough
copies to obviate the necessity for restricting loans to two-
hour periods. When it is considered that in this past year,
for the first time, all students had access to the shelves
and needed not charge out materials merely to examine them, the extent of effective reading may be fairly judged to have gone
up appreciably, certainly by a factor well exceeding the rise
in enrollment.
The lengthening files of call slips attest to the work of
the lending services, but how to mark the dimensions of the
Library's teaching functions? How much information did the
Social Sciences Division convey in answering some 17,000
reference questions? What bibliographical guidance did the
Biomedical Librarian bring by her fifteen lectures to eight
classes? When 1,500 students voluntarily attended illustrated
talks on the use of the Library, what effect did these have on
their studies? How much reading did the Library's displays
promote? What gain or saving did librarians' searches bring
to scholars' researches?
No certain answers can be given, but queues at the desks
and the testimony of satisfied inquirers suggest that the Library's informational services operated at greater range and
depth than ever before.  Advanced students and faculty members
gravitated to the subject divisions for the assistance that
specialized bibliographical knowledge could furnish. Individual conferences with the College librarians helped freshmen
get their bearings in the choice and use of books. Two new
services met up with old needs: the Science Division assembled
translations, and the "information desk" staff made a complex
catalogue seem less formidable. The realignment into subject divisions brought its share
of difficulties too, notably in the retraining of staff and
the relocation of materials. In the Chinese manner, 1960/61
could certainly have been called "the year of the guinea pig".
But the problems of reorganization were basically temporary
and managerial, and the gains are likely to be permanent and
solidly academic. Working within a more restricted field than
traditional reference librarians, the divisional staff should
come to have a much closer knowledge of their materials and
the needs of their clientele. Given opportunity for additional
training, the "subject librarians" should be able to provide
specialized bibliographical knowledge for the support of
advanced study and research.
It is the Library staff that translates books and building
Into an effective educational force. In its own interest the
University must therefore seek to assure for its librarians the
salaries and working conditions that make for high morale and
professional growth.
A vexingly high rate of turnover, particularly among the
library assistants, continued to be a serious problem. For
example, the Circulation Division had to contend with eight
resignations from five such positions, the Acquisitions Division
with five resignations from three positions, and so on.  In one 8
topsy-turvy period of four months, over 45 vacancies had to
be filled in all I
With a constantly changing non-professional staff plus a
wholesale realignment of duties to effect in the subject divisions, the division heads had to carry exceptional responsibilities. Their importance to the Library and to the University
has never been adequately recognized. The present range in
salary between beginning professional librarians and division
heads is only $2600. The resultant squeeze seriously hinders
staff development.
The beginning professional salaries at the Library, once
as good as any in Canada, have fallen behind those at Toronto
and .Alberta, and the same is true of the intermediate ranks.
The University Library has never been able to fill its complement of professional positions (four were vacant last year).
It must seek to bring its whole salary scale up to a fully
competitive level.
Another requisite is greater opportunity for librarians
to enhance their professional qualifications. A research
library calls for staff with specialized knowledge. Librarians
at U.B.C. should be given time and funds for observational studies
of other libraries and for courses in university departments.
In a year when changes were almost too numerous to note,
three resignations still call for special mention. Neal
Harlow, the University Librarian, resigned in June after ten
years of truly outstanding leadership. Mrs. Anne Brearley, the organizer and first head of the Science Division, resigned
in August, having made signal contributions in the inception
and improvement of services. Miss Anna Leith is her capable
Miss Mabel Lanning, head of the Circulation Division,
retired after the end of the period under review, but her
thirty-five years of unstinting work cannot wait another
year for the telling. Always visible and seldom sufficiently
recognized, Miss Lanning never gave less than her best. She
has come to constitute a large part of the University's small
stock of legend, and the Library will simply not look the same
without her. Mr. Inglis Bell, a seasoned administrator,
takes over her responsibilities and tradition of service.
1. Collections. Teaching departments have rung yearlong changes on a common theme: more funds for books and
periodicals. Last year's report recommended an increase of
$50,000 (none was forthcoming). No less is needed now and
much more would be quite in order.
2. Staff. Beginning professional salaries should be
as good as the best in Canada. It is recommended that the
base rate be raised from $4600 to $5000.,
Serving scholarship, university librarians should be
encouraged to Improve their own scholarship. It is recommended that provision be made for study and travel leave and 10
that staff members be allowed to take university courses
at no charge.
If the Library is important to the University, then so
are the Library's chief officers. Division heads with long
experience are now paid less than many high school teachers.
Salaries for this key group of Library personnel should be
reviewed and brought into line with their responsibilities.
The Library's service load grows inexorably as collections,
enrollment, teaching programmes and graduate studies expand
annually. The need for more staff on all levels is easily
projected, and it is recommended that additions be made to
obviate crises rather than palliate them.
3* Facilities. Many faculty members miss having a
reading room of their own in the Library. An area in the ,'
stacks, conveniently close to the books themselves, could
be remodeled to this end. The proposal warrants serious
consideration for a special grant.
"Photocopies while you wait" represents an old dream
of librarians and scholars. Recently developed equipment
makes the provision of such service quite feasible. A number
Of university libraries now furnish photocopies to faculty
members at nominal charges and consider the convenience well
worth the cost. The argument is equally valid here, and it
is recommended that budgetary provision be made for the
operation of a freely available photocopying service. 11
With Thanks
If annual reports could bear dedications, Neal Harlow
would have incontestable claim to this one. The accomplishments described herein have been chiefly of his doing, as
will future progress stem largely from his planning. He
has relinquished his office but not his place in the Library.
In a year of so many beginnings and "interim" direction,
tfhe division heads and senior librarians have had to take on
added burdens and unusually heavy responsibilities. Invariably
they were cheerfully borne and ably carried out; the rest of
the story is told in the reports that follow. The writer
owes all these friends and colleagues personal as well as
official thanks.
The Library touches the university community at many
points and commensurably claims the help of many people without its walls: the President, Board of Governors, and members
of the University administration; the Senate Library Committee
and the Senate itself; Its own "loyal order of Friends of
the Library"; the faculty members who acted as representatives
of their departments to and from the Library; the many other
faculty members who had no such duties but gave similar
assistance. They more often hear of the Library's claims
than its thanks. Let this statement of sincere appreciation
be some redress.
The School of Librarianship, for so long a regular topic
of discussion in these pages, is now a reality which must 12
account for itself. But as the Librarian's annual report
carried the School's story up to the present, so should it
record the thanks of the School for all that is past.
Finally on a personal note, As Acting University
Librarian I have been peculiarly dependent upon others and
particularly upon the Assistant Librarian and the Chairman
of the Library Committee. May I acknowledge here my
indebtedness to Miss Anne Smith and Dr. Ian Cowan for the
advice I solicited from them and for the encouragement they
freely gave. Most of all, thanks to Hilda Maclean and
Basil Stuart-Stubbs for daily help that was never measured
out in office hours.

Report Upon Library Divisions
Acquisitions Division.  (Miss Eleanor Mercer)
Buying books is the main business of the Acquisitions
Division.  In the past year 32,493 volumes were received
(compared with 28,515 in 1959/60), of which 4,637 (2,931)
came by gift or exchange. Expenditures increased by $15,353.11
to attain a new high of $229,884.20; even so, lack of funds
made it necessary to hold back some 3,000 requisitions.
Increases were also noted in incoming and outgoing mail, and
the Faculty Delivery Service handled 14,691 books and magazines (14,240). Against a background of increased work load,
the Division suffered an unfortunate turnover of staff, with
nineteen changes in thirteen positions.
Serials Division (Mr. Roland Lanning)
With the reorganization of the Library, the Serials
Division no longer served the public directly and became
almost wholly a purchasing, preparations and recording centre.
As such, it now shares the technical services area with the
Acquisitions and Cataloguing Divisions. The grouping of related activities has brought a real gain in convenience, but
the bindery preparations section is still handicapped by
inadequate quarters. Like the subscription list, the Division's
work load grows steadily larger, and this pressure may account
for the high rate of turnover in staff. Statistics record a
modest Increase in bound volumes delivered to the stacks
(10,423 vs. 10,286), but it is only proper to note that the
number of missing and mutilated issues seems to have gone up
as well.
Bindery (Mr. Percy Fryer)
The Bindery's notable record of producing annual increases
in output with the same size of staff was maintained this year;
12,356 volumes in full binding were processed (11,797). It is
also clear that existing facilities have probably reached their
maximum. A second shift will soon be required to deal with the
impending backlog of journals, paperbacks, and rebinds.
Cataloguing Division (Mr. G. G. Turner)
In its task of organizing and describing the Library
Collections, the Cataloguing Division catalogued and classified 14
41,147 volumes (33,485 last year), of which 10,423 were bound
serials (10,286).  Including volumes withdrawn, recatalogued,
rebound and replaced, the Division's total production reached
49,529 volumes handled during the year.  In addition to its
usual duties, the Division was heavily involved in recataloguing
and record-changing as a result of library reorganization, and
in preparing some 16,000 volumes for the College Library. For
the first time the cataloguing of materials in Chinese and
Japanese has been undertaken. Even with one professional
position vacant most of the year, the backlog of unprocessed
material (2,982 volumes) increased by only 336 volumes.
Additional staff will be needed to reduce this backlog and
to commence the cataloguing of the extensive and important
collection of the Institute of Pacific Relations.
Circulation Division (Miss Mabel Lanning)
At the main Loan Desk a record 220,125 (201,833 the
previous year) volumes were loaned, despite the existence of a
new College Library as the primary lending agency for first
and second year students. The Reserve Book Collection was
reduced to less than half of its 1959/60 size, yet circulation
decreased by only 26$ to 92,470. Total book circulation,
including College Library books, was 391,355 volumes, a 19$
Increase over last year's total. With growing use of the
collections, wear and losses have become serious problems.
A partial inventory revealed that 1,049 books were missing,
and rebinding on a large scale is a pressing need.
College Library (Miss Eleanor Cock)
In the College Library first and second year students
find an open stack collection of books adjacent to two reading
rooms furnished with individual study desks. The combination
is designed to induce wider and more effective use of library
materials. Students are encouraged to browse as well as study;
the collection includes many books of general interest, with
paperbacks and current magazines as added enticements to
reading. The formula has seemingly worked, for attendance
and circulation have both been high. The 8,000 volumes of
September grew to 16,000 by August, but until the optimum
stock of 40,000 volumes is attained, faculty members and
librarians will have to give high priority to the work of
book selection. 15
Science Division (Miss Anna Leith)
The raison d'etre of the Science Division is better
and more specialized service to members of faculty and students
in the fields of chemistry, mathematics, physics, engineering,
agriculture, botany and home economics. The arrangement of
materials places abstracts, indexes and reference books
conveniently close to current journals and to the collection
of bound scientific journals and books. This arrangement not
only brought books and readers closer together, but also
brought the staff into closer contact with faculty and
students. The staff has tried to make its patrons aware
of library resources outside the science departments' own
laboratory collections and to have its services give maximum
support to research.
Social Sciences Division (Miss Joan O'Rourke)
The Social Sciences Divison provides specialized
reference service to students and faculty in anthropology,
sociology, geography, political science, economics, commerce
and education. In large addition, the Division also acquires,
records, and gives reference service with the Library's collections of maps, microfilms and government documents. During
the year 5,871 of the Division's collection of unbound periodicals were circulated, 36,927 government documents were added
to the collection, and 17,177 questions were answered. It is
probably the busiest of the subject divisions and the need for
additional staff is a paramount concern.
Humanities Division (Mrs. Joan Selby)
The Humanities Division gives reference service in the
subject areas of philosophy, religion, history, literature
and language. During the year the Division answered 6,979
personal and telephone inquiries. The Division is also responsible for interlibrary loans; these amounted to 848 items
secured and 2,220 volumes lent in the course of the year.
Bibliographical services arebeing expanded to include the
publication of subject guides to the Division's reference
Fine Arts Room (Miss Melva Dwyer)
The Fine Arts Room provides reference service for and
circulates the Library's materials on fine arts, architecture, 16
music and the dance. Remodelling greatly increased reading
space, and with the addition of a new staircase its stack area
was doubled. To keep abreast of growing demands, the Division
extended hours of service from 54$ to 65f per week. Increased
enrollment in music and fine arts courses made Itself felt
in book use: 13,435 volumes were loaned, and thousands of
others were used within the study area of the Division.
Biomedical Library (Miss Doreen Fraser)
The Biomedical Library, the prototype of the subject
divisions, celebrated its tenth anniversary by the formal transfer of the biological sciences, excepting botany, to Its sphere
of operations. The holdings in medicine alone now total 43,342
volumes, the Cunha Osier Collection being the most notable
acquisition of the year. The use of the Library, particularly
at the Branch maintained in the Vancouver General Hospital, has
gone up sharply, with attendance nearly one-third higher and other
statistics on a similar pattern. Commensurate increases in staff
must soon follow. The establishment of the B. C Medical Library
Service by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British
Columbia is worthy of special note, for the new Service promises
to have a close working relationship with the Biomedical Library,
Asian Studies  (Miss Tung King Ng)
In mid-December i960 the Asian Studies department was
established to order, receive, catalogue and give public service for all materials in Asian languages. Operations and
services are now well under way; 676 titles have been catalogued,
1480 have been ordered, 741 have been received and 497 loaned.
The collection, now approximating 80,000 volumes, is dominated
by the P'u Pan Chinese library, which includes 309 titles of
extreme rarity. Modern works, both in Chinese and Japanese,
cover a comprehensive range of subjects, with chief emphasis
on history and social science. But development raises new
problems: space is limited, and book funds fall short of needs.
Special Collections Division (Mr. Basil Stuart-Stubbs)
The Special Collections Division provides facilities
for the preservation and use of rare, valuable and beautiful
books, manuscripts, special subject collections and university
archives. The book collection is dominated by the libraries
of the late F. W. Howay, R. L. Reid, A. J. T. Taylor and
Thomas Murray; in combination they provide one of Canada's 17
most notable collections of Canadiana. The collections also
contain many books notable for their beauty, rarity or provenance, such as the four Shakespeare folios deposited here
by the Folger Library in October, i960. Almost two hundred
volumes have been purchased this year to supplement the
collections; 2,237 volumes were consulted, of which 925 were
University of British Columbia theses.
Curriculum Laboratory (Mrs. Emily Woodward)
The Curriculum Laboratory, operated by the Library
with the support of the Faculty of Education, supplies
student teachers with text-books, course outlines, pictures
and other materials needed in the preparation of lesson plans.
Now located in the old Faculty Club, it will eventually move
to a central position in the new Education Building. In
keeping with the general pattern of expanding library use,
circulation of all materials rose from 42,169 items to 60,337.
At the end of the year the collection stood at 13,859 volumes,
an Increase of 3,730. Losses are a source of growing concern,
as is the well evident shortage of staff.
Extension Library (Miss Edith Stewart)
The Extension Library provides direct and mail service
in four areas: general reading to residents of British Columbia
who do not have access to public libraries; plays for theatre
groups; assigned reading for Correspondence Course students;
supplementary reading to those taking non-credit extension
courses. The services of the library are not widely advertised, so that the number of registered borrowers changes
little from year to year. This year a total of 626 borrowers
used 21,228 books. But numbers cannot express the degree of
appreciation expressed every year by the province-wide
membership, composed of persons who would otherwise find
it difficult or impossible to read as widely and as well as
they do. APPENDIX A
