Note on the Cover Design   9 The Report of the University Librarian to the Senate
TERM, "UNIVERSITY LIBRARY," may be an expression of fact,
faith, or fiction, and those who use the name should be
certain which sense they mean. A false assessment of library
resources is as unscholarly as carelessness in any other academic
field and is likely to be more damaging.  A "university" without library facilities to support its full program is an incongruity. Unfortunately, adequacy is not easily defined,
the annoying question of library standards is therefore
often raised. With colleges blossoming into "universities"
overnight while universities but slowly reach their true estate,
both criteria and judgments are required by which perspective
be gained.
A university is an institution of learning of the highest
grade, having various faculties and schools (including the
graduate and professional) concerned with all or many of the
branches of knowledge; it is permeated by a spirit of inquiry
and has its place in the world community; by making its students
responsive to the findings of research, it changes the world
in which they live and alters the practice of their chosen professions,... These are indeed no modest claims, and an
academic body should profess them with gravity and caution.
To achieve its ends, a university leans mainly upon its faculty,
library, and laboratories.
The library of a university is at once its most mutable
and most durable possession. Created deliberately, its resources define and determine what academic work can be done. Whether for liberal education, for subject specialization
and training in methods of research, or for mature inquiry
based upon a significant body of source material, an
adequate library must precede academic development.  It
cannot be brought about by reiteration.
It is perhaps normal to view our own performance with
a lenient eye—comparing our situation with that of a
wealthier neighbor and employing the social sciences to
explain the difference. With one of the world's highest
living standards, we are not greatly moved by the relative
poverty of our universities.  \nd we are apparently content to leave the task of advanced training in many fields
to foreign institutions.  If the result is undeveloped
research centers of our own and a serious loss of promising
and proven personnel, this penalty we have learned to pay.
Our economy and culture have their fervid fans, but
"Canadians," a local scientist recently said, "do not look
with much enthusiasm upon pure research."
\  national canvass of academic library resources,
shared responsibility for graduate studies in given fields,
and a determined move to develop research collections on a
massive scale may be needed to bring a change of pace in
the present decade.  "And we invite anyone to show that we
are guilty of unrealistic or extravagant planning," we
quote from a recent Government statement.  "Much of
capacity ... is needed now," it said.  "All of it will be
needed within a few months or years," but it was speaking
of roads, not the University. Library Development
No single year in the history of a university library is
likely to be decisive—every advance made serves to increase
future responsibility. New personnel, policies and motion play their important part, but library growth is
gradual =>nd subject to interruption. Gains persist if they
respond to change and are kept alive by cultivation.
increments of large and significant proportions were
made during the year, confirming the University's intent
and capacity to pursue research in given fields.
Just at the beginning of the academic year the Thomas
Murray collection was received in Vancouver, ten tons of
solid support for the program of Canadian Studies. Composed
of several thousand items which are both very important and
scarce, and a large stock of books which together constitute a collection of broad scope and usefulness, the collection when fully absorbed will greatly strengthen the
library in an already well developed area.
The P'u-pan Chinese collection reached the University
Library at the end of February 1959.  Acquired from Macao
(from its owner, Mr. Yao Chttn-shih), it contains some
45,000 items (ts'e) in extraordinarily fine condition. Of
these, about 115 are from the Sung and Yttan dynasties (960-
136$), 3,326 from the Ming (1368-1644), 9,865 from the early
Ch'ing (1644-1820), and the remainder from the Modern period
(after 1820). Of more than three hundred manuscripts, the
oldest is dated 1426, and some remain unpublished.  Said to
be one of the five most important collections on the continent, it will, with other expanding resources in Chinese
and Japanese, bring scholars and distinction to the University, The rate of growth of the Library—measured in
numbers of volumes processed and sent to the bookstacks—
rises gradually, this year's increment being 31,767
volumes (compared with 30,258 in 1957/58), of which 10,913
were bound periodicals 11,710).  The size of the collection
at the end of the fiscal year was 419,519.
In addition to the books and journals formally counted,
there were 56,721 items added to the Reference collections
(43,746 the previous year): government publications, 49,896
(37,033), pamphlets and university calendars, 5,013 (3,950),
and maps, 1,818 (2,516).  Publications on atomic energy
from the United States, Great Britain, and Australia, and
the publications of the Council of Europe were introduced
this year on a full depository basis.  Although thousands
of unprocessed items in the Asian Studies and Murray collections yet remain, the backlog of uncataloged current
material, which has averaged from two to four thousand items
for a number of years, was eliminated.
There were 227 new journal subscriptions received (227),
as listed in Appendix B, bringing the total to 4,965 titles.
The Library Bindery produced 11,343 volumes (10,392), plus
919 in storage binding (1,139).  The most notable acquisitions
are reported in Appendix C.
Book Funds
During 1958/59 the following amounts were expended upon books,
periodicals, and binding (with comparable figures for the two
preceding years): Expenditures Upon Books, Periodicals, and Binding
1958/59*   1957/58    1956/57
Library $125,366.80 $95,007.57 $87,008.00
Medicine 31,175.60 33,326.72 29,346.65
Law 12,274.13 12,612.47 8,778.11
Education 10,541.17 11,972.37 5,038.04
Non-university 32.896.4$ 37,577.75 15.$80.50
Total       $212,254.18 $190,496.88 $146,051.30
* For detailed figures, see Appendix A.
Of the 195$/59 expenditures, $174,31$.3$ was for books and
periodicals, $25,935.$0 for binding. This year's total
exceeded the previous year's by 11.4$.  There was an increase
of $19,075.96 in the Library's formal budget for books and
periodicals (21+%) f   plus a special item of~$$,090.96 spent
in preparation for establishing the College Library. The
non-University funds included a grant of $12,000 toward the
purchase of the Thomas Murray collection.
Expenditures for all Library purposes were $49.43 per
student ($50.42 and $47.46 the two previous years); and the
ratio of Library to total University costs (omitting capital
items, but including research) was 4.3$ (compared with
4,65 and 4.5). Comparing expenditures for 1958/59 with
those of more than a hundred institutions of university rank
on the continent for the previous year, 1957/58 (the latest
available, and therefore weighted in our favor), we rank
40th in total library expenditures (36th last year), 29th
in funds for books-periodicals-binding (31st), and 65th in
size of book collection (65th)
Notable outside grants were received from Mr. Walter
C Koerner (for the Murray collection, the Humanities, and
Slavonic Studies); from Dr. H. R. MacMillan (Forestry and
History); the Leon and Thea Koerner Foundation (Asian
Studies, Australian and English Literature, Law); the Otto
Koerner Memorial Fund (Fine Arts); Dr* and Mrs. Thomas
Ingledow (Canadian Studies); the Men's Canadian Club of
Vancouver (Canadians); the Japanese Canadian Citizens
Association (Asian Studies); the Carnegie Corporation (French
Canada); the B. C, Association of Broadcasters (communications); and other individuals and groups. Without this continuing support, many fields of study would be almost without
library facilities. Library Use
The direct services of loan, reference, =nd instruction
were under heavy pressure during the year, responding to
an increasing number of students and faculty, the cumulative effect of years of instruction in library use,
more library-based course assignments. Students poured
into the Library, and their expectations sometimes outran
the supply of materials and manpower available to satisfy
them.  Often they had to wait their turn for books in great
demand, and they may have hoped the Library staff would do
all their "looking up" for them. The library of a university
is a laboratory where students must learn to solve their own
problems by mastering procedures which will be applicable to
later studies.
What a student can do for himself in a library or
laboratory should not be done for him by a librarian or
teacher. Hand-feeding wastes the University's substance
and limits the student's own means of development. A
coordinated program of guidance, involving faculty, librarians, and bookstore (using paperbacks and anthologies for
specific assignments and well planned library collections
for broad reading and investigation), offers a sounder
learning process and more effective use of resources.
In response to changing needs, plans for the reorganization of the University Library (in September I960) will
foster greater use of the collections.  These changes
in turn require users to make some alterations in their
habits to take full advantage of the new facilities. A College Library for 1st and 2d year students will
bring instruction and library use more closely together,
A large, open collection of some forty thousand volumes
(plus transfers from the main Library when this is essential
and five hundred individual study tables in well laid-out
reading rooms will vastly improve the learning situation.
Four other "main" reading rooms will concentrate upon
student use in the Sciences. Biological Sciences °nd Medicine, the Humanities, and Social Sciences! Each leading
into its own particular section of the bookstacks, and
staffed with full-time specialized personnel, they will
offer immediate access to the current journals, reference
works, bibliographies, and subject indexes.
The Division of Special Collections will provide a new
laboratory for the Humanities Qnd Social Sciences, with
access to rare books, manuscripts, and other unusual materials in fields of Library subject specialization.  Appropriate facilities for the conservation of these materials,
and a branch of the B. C. Provincial Archives, will make
fuller utilization of scholarly resources possible.
Quarters for the Fine Arts Library will be much enlarged to accomodate undergraduate students in the expanding
program of Fine Arts and Music. A general Loan Division will
coordinate the lending of books through all of the Divisions
and supervise the general collections. The "inside" departments of Acquisitions, Cataloging. Serials, and Binding will
be more closely allied through building alterations for more
effective service.
The number of books borrowed from the Loan Division
totaled 266,451 245,1$7 in 1957/5$ , of which 105,609 were
from the Reserve Book Room (97,663   This was an increase
of 9$ from the main Loan Desk and of 8$ from the Reserve
Room, set against a rise of 10.7$ in student enrollment.
In two years the recorded loan of books (overlooking
the heavy use of material by thousands of students within
the bookstacks) has increased 24,3$, with a 49$ rise in a
five year period,  (Appendix D for monthly loan statistics. 3

wi  a range as the nature of the collection permits.
Transactions totaled 2,070 titles lent during the year
(1,532 in 1957/5$) and 571 borrowed (648), a 35$ increase in
lo=>ns and a reduction of 13.4% in materials obtained for
local use.  It will be noted that 70% of the material borrowed
came from the United States, 25$ from Canada outside British
Columbia, and 5%  from within the Province. On the other hand
half of the material loaned by the Library went to B. C. users,
35$ to the rest of Canada, and 13.6$ to the U. S.

Developing a staff of high quality is as serious a problem
as any the Library faces. Both personal factors (such as
intelligence, education, motivation, and experience) and
the capability of the Library to make the most of every
individual's potential must be taken into account
Salary may not be the chief motivation of those who
enter academic life, but its importance in attracting and
retaining desirable people is recognized both by faculty
and librarians.
During the past six years the salary floor for beginning librarians has risen by 50$ ($2,800 to $4,200), while
that for instructors has advanced 64$, or 28$ more rapidly.
The increase for instructor is expected to reach 77$ in
I960. Whatever the argument for parity of salary floors
at this academic level, there seems little justification
for a smaller proportional increase.  Advancing at the faculty
rate, the beginning salary for Librarian-I would now be
In Canada, salary standards for librarians in university and college libraries have been set by the Canadian
Library Association, this year in relation to faculty
floors at the level of the much-copied "Toronto scale."

If a  $4,700 beginning  salary for Librarians is realized
at this University in I960,  a 68$ increase will have been-
made during  the  period in which the faculty gained by 77$,
perhaps too modest a request.     Because of the  size of the
library operation here,   and the nature of the  demands made
upon staff members,  there is no library in Canada  requiring-''
more ability or achievement.
We do not  overlook the advances made in salary payments
during the last fiscal year,   for in all categories  significant
increases were made.     Particularly notable were the new scales
instituted for the non-professional staff,  bringing University
salaries up to those paid in the Vancouver area,
the  completion of the  new Library wing we anticipate
some  changes in conditions which will benefit the Library
staff.     Physical  improvements will increase  the ease and
effectiveness of Library operations,  and the new subject
Divisions will give staff members greater opportunity  for
specialization and bring them into closer relationship with
faculty and students
success of the new order,  however,  will depend to
a  large  extent upon the  ability of the  University to  provide 11

The average length of service of the professional staff
was at the end of the academic year 4 years and 11 months
(compared with 3 years, 9 months last year), the median being
3 years and 1 month (2 years, 1 month). There were at the
end of August, however, 8 vacant positions: 3 Librarians, 4
Library Assistants, and 1 clerical staff.  (For a list of
Library staff and of persons who resigned during the year,
see Appendix E.)
Resignations cause a continuing drain of accrued experience and put an additional load upon'those'who--remain, 12
absorbing energies which could otherwise be put directly
to productive use. Much of it is unavoidable, but every
means of encouragement must be used to bolster the caliber
and effectiveness of staff.
The Library Building
The move to add a south wing to the Library building has
advanced through a long history of prospect and planning
into actual production, and many of the problems and proposals with which this report is concerned are tied up with
its completion. The total building will not be large enough
when it is completed, but it will seat a thousand more
people, give them greater opportunity for independent study,
and serve them better as the library of a university.
Actual construction of the addition began in July 1959,
and completion is scheduled for August I960. Four floors of
new reading rooms, eight of bookstacks, a stack "well" for
later completion, another entrance hall into the old wing,
and many changes to adapt the existing building to its new
uses are to be completed within the coming year. Grateful
recognition is given to Mr. Walter C, Koerner, whose gift
made this addition immediately possible.
The Friends of the Library
Friends of the University Library, with their own individual
interests normally to the fore, are brought into the Library's
orbit because of some strong but secondary relationship with 13
books. By joining an organization they are predisposed
toward interest in its work, but they are nevertheless
easily brought into actual participation. The chief
problem of the organization of Friends is therefore that
of active engagement.
In the three years since its formation (in September
1956), two outstanding research collections and other
important materials have been acquired in the name of the
Friends, Without this support these great additions could
not have been made, but the work and cost have been borne
by too few individuals.  Additional "friends of learning"
must be found to extend this base of assistance if the
University is to reach the position in Canada it is even
now expected to maintain.
Membership in the Friends is open to all who have
bookish interests and pay the annual fee of "five dollars
upward" (deductible from income tax). Occasional
meetings and publications, and appointments to working
committees, offer opportunity for direct participation
For a list of the Council of Friends, see Appendix G.)
The Senate Library Committee
The Senate Library Committee occupies a  key position among
University bodies.    Provided for in the  University  Act,  it
represents all of the Faculties and is responsible through
the  Librarian  for library  service to  the  University,     Its
concern is  long-range and University-wide,  not  forgetting
the  present. 14
The Committee met three times during the year, under
the chairmanship of Dr. Ian McT. Cowan, to discuss the
Librarian's annual report and to forward recommendations
concerning it to the Senate; to review the Library building
plan; to hear reports upon the proposed College Library and
subject Divisions; to study the proposal submitted to it by
the Senate concerning the establishment of a School of
Librarianship at the University; to discuss a statement from
the Faculty Council regarding noise in the Library; to consider
the proposed inclusion of Biomedical Library facilities in
plans for the new Faculty of Medicine buildings; to spend the
Committee Fund upon research materials; to allocate book funds
to Departments; and to deliberate upon many other matters
affecting the Library's program.
The School of Librarianship
A professional School of Librarianship, to prepare a selected
group of university graduates for service in public, university,
school, and special libraries, has been under active consideration at the University for a number of years. Based upon a
sound undergraduate program of general or specialized studies,
it would offer work toward the degrees of B. L. S. (Bachelor
of Librarianship) and M. L. S. and provide courses for
teacher-librarians in the College of Education. Progress
has been made toward these ends in 1957/58.
The proposal, referred by Senate to the Library Committee,
was returned with a favorable recommendation, suggesting that
it be presented to the Faculties concerned for consideration.
The Faculty of Arts subsequently gave its approval in principle,
prescribing that the curriculum be presented to the Faculty, after
which the School would be administered as are others in the
University.  In September 1959 the recommendation was again to
go to the Senate and the Board of Governors.
If the School should be authorized during the fiscal year
1960/61, first steps towards its establishment would be taken
in the fall of I960, with its formal opening in September I96I. 15
Library development must pursue a well plotted course or
it will soon describe an orbit which is not related to
campus needs. An annual report should recommend, therefore, as well as review.
(I)  The University of British Columbia Library, with
limited resources see column 1, table below) to support
the growing program of instruction and research, should
develop its collections more rapidly through an increased
appropriation for the purchase of journals and books.
Adding $100,000 a year to the total book fund would
provide for the same growth rate as the universities of
Washington (Seattle), Southern Illinois, and Duke. We
should still lag considerably behind such institutions as
Kansas, Florida, Missouri, Ohio State, and Wisconsin, and
far behind Indiana, Texas, Cornell, and UCLA.
The following table, arranged in ascending order of
total book stock, shows comparable expenditures upon the
collections (col. 3) and annual growth in numbers of
volumes (col. 2). These libraries, all of good repute
(but not including the very greatest), show the pattern
we must surely follow.
Quantity—of students, dollars, staff, and books—
is a concept we cannot overlook. One quantity often
requires another to match or offset it, and goals are
therefore often expressed in numerical terms: 16

(II)    Non-University funds for the acquisition of
library materials should be actively sought from outside
sources,  preferably upon an annual basis.    Grants may be
ear-marked for special subject areas or be given uncommitted,   for use as needs require or opportunities to acquire
materials occur.
Publications  in most  of the sciences are becoming
extraordinarily expensive,   particularly if older materials
and back files are  concerned.     In the life  sciences,   for
example,   reports of scientific  expeditions and the major
taxonomic works involve the  expenditure of many thousands
of dollars;  and in the  pure and applied sciences expensive
new revisions of basic works and long journal files are
always  sought.   Advanced work in the humanities and social 17
sciences is still virtually impossible in many fields without
the purchase of scores of cpstly sets and thousands of basic
studies and texts.
Several subject fields have already been "brought in"
by this means, to undergraduate or graduate level, notably:
Slavonic Studies, Asian Studies, Canadian Studies (including
French Canada), Forestry, Fisheries, Fine Arts, English and
French languages and literature,
(III) Great advantages in time can often be gained
by acquiring collections in toto which have been laboriously
brought together by other people.  It is recommended that
this practice, followed this year in securing the Murray
and P'u-pan collections, be actively continued.
Members of the faculty and Friends of the Library
should be alert to locate and obtain by gift or purchase
research collections in fields of University interest.
(IV) A greater concern for Library development on the
part of the Faculty Association, academic departments,
individual faculty members, and campus groups would markedly
accelerate the growth of the Library, and this interest should
be strongly encouraged.
Many persons tend to regard the resources of this Library
as static in relation to their own research and see travel to
other institutions as the single means of pursuing their
serious work. Recent developments (in Slavonic, Asian, and
Canadian Studies, for example) show this is not necessarily
the case. Whole-hearted participation in library development
is also sometimes held bapk by self-centered Departmental
programs. In meetings of the Faculty Association in recent
years the Library has hardly been mentioned, and the current
brief dealing with major University problems uses the word
"Library" only in the context of "travelto," in relation to
proposed study leave. 13
It is recommended that a study of the resources of
university libraries in Canada be made, looking toward the
development of facilities for graduate studies on a national
scale and the production of an adequate number of university
teachers and research staff to meet the nation's need.
The National Council of Canadian Universities and
Colleges has authorized the establishment of a committee to
discuss such a proposed study. The Committee on Scientific
Information of the National Research Council has also demonstrated an active concern over the holdings of scientific journals
in regional research centers. The interest of this University
(expressed, perhaps, through these organizations, the Canadian
Association of University Teachers, and other national scientific and professional associations) would create a greater
sense of urgency for this basic task.
With the establishment of the College Library in
the fall of I960, providing a separate collection of books
chosen for students in their first two years, it is recommended that instruction in 100 and 200 courses be planned
with the full use of these facilities in mind.
The association of faculty, Library, and Bookstore in
an effort to meet fully and speedily the needs of several
thousand beginning students seems imperative. The use of
paperbacks (in packets for specific courses) and anthologies
for required reading assignments as far as possible, and
well planned library collections for broad reading, essay
writing, and individual studies will give students greater
freedom and opportunity to take part in their own education.
(VII)  "Divisional" reading rooms for the Humanities,
Social Sciences, Sciences, and the existing Biomedical and
Fine Arts libraries will offer improved access to library 19
materials in these areas; and a Division of Special Collections will form a center for graduate research in
humanistic and social studies. The potential for library
use by more advanced students which will arise from these
changes should be carefully studied.
(VIII) Since the University cannot thrive unless the
best procurable staff are responsible for library development, the same favorable attention must be given to the
salaries of librarians as to any other University group.
We cannot realize one day our ambition to have a
major university library if we choose to "fudge along" (to
use a Shavian phrase) with the remuneration of professional
librarians. 20
Report Upon Library  Divisions
The year's work of the  Library Divisions is the  sum of
Library  services to the University,     Its nature,   variety,
quality,   and amount can be only suggested in this brief
Reference Division
Information lies buried in an enormous variety of sources,
and  reference  librarians  specialize  in procedures for  sorting it out.    By the  use of method,  related knowledge,   and
imagination,   they bring together from this and other libraries
material bearing upon specific  problems.
The Division acquired during the  year 56,721 items with
which to supplement the main book collection,  of which 49,896
were publications of governments and official bodies,   5,013
were pamphlets and university calendars,   and 1,818 were maps
(29$ above last year's 43.746 documents,  3,950 pamphlets and
calendars,   and 2,516 maps).     Publications  relating to atomic
energy from the U,   S.,  Great Britain,   and   Australia were for
the first time received on a depository basis,  and after some
years of inquiry a   similar arrangement was concluded for the
published material of the Council of Europe.     Selected
publications from Fiji and India began to be  received,
obtained with the assistance of traveling  faculty.     Briefs
were  secured from several B.  C. Royal Commissions.
Of 29.247 questions answered  (25,783 in 1957/58',  $,651
were by telephone   (7,727),   half from off-campus sources.
Thirteen bibliographies were compiled for course use,  and
several others were brought  up to date.     Forty-four displays
were mounted in Library cases. 21
A total of 156 lectures were given by the staff,  mainly
instructing Freshmen in Library use,  but including talks to
classes  in architecture,   planning,  music,   economics,   agriculture,
education,  and engineering.     Following last  summer's experiments,
colored slides depicting library materials and  services were
substituted for a  series of class assignments,  with considerable
success.    The rapid increase in the number of sections of 1st
year English from year to year  (from 4$ to 65 to $0)  may bring
an end to this  long-time program of instruction because of
insufficient staff to carry it on.
Interlibrary loans,  under the  supervision of Miss Marion
Searle during the year,   totaled 2,070 items lent   (1,532)  and
571 borrowed   (648),  a  35$ increase in loans and a  13.4$ reduction in materials borrowed for local use.     (See   Appendix D.)
The annual Publications of Faculty and Staff was prepared,
this year's edition containing 524 distinct entries (50 pages),
compared with last year's 434 (and 40 pages).
The Fine   Arts Room,  headed by Miss Melva Dwyer,   added a
full-time Library Assistant  to the staff,  thereby permitting
an extension of service hours from 49 1/2 to 54 1/2  a week.
Loans  jumped to 14,247  (from 12,977)  and summer use w=s very
heavy;  in*1955/56 the total was 5,866.    The Howay-Reid collection of Canadiana,   under Miss Betty Vogel,  assisted by Mrs.
Barbara McAlpine,   served an increasing number of users:  faculty,
master's and doctoral candidates,  writers,   and other students.
Many additions to the  collection were made,  and the processing
of pamphlets,   photographs.•   and manuscripts continued.     In the
Map Room,  Mrs.   Anne Brearley,   assisted by Miss Gillian Flew,
added 1,815 maps  from many parts of the world and guided
students in their use.
The heavy day-to-day pressure of duties leaves little
time  for planning and development,  at a time when consideration
and thought are perhaps most needed.     Fortunately,  Miss  Anne
M,  Smith,   Assistant Librarian and Head of the  Division,  was
enabled by a Canada  Council grant to  spend three months visiting libraries in the  United States,   chiefly studying the
problems likely to be  faced by the proposed subject Divisions.
Miss Joan 0'Rourke ably served as  Acting Head in her absence,
with loyal staff support. 22
Acquisitions Divisions
How to acquire the  right  books,   secure and pay for them
quickly,   in sufficient numbers,   and without unwanted duplication and within the  funds provided,   is  the difficult
assignment of this  department.
Expenditures for books and periodicals this year totaled
$186,318*3$,   an increase of 11.5$ over last year's amount
($167,003.94).    Of this,  $12,000 was in partial payment for
the Murray collection,  a single transaction.     (For more detailed information,   see  Appendix  A and page  5 of this  report.
There were 15,493 orders placed  (compared with 17,360 in
1957/5$);  the reduction from last year's total was caused in
part by the  exhaustion of the main book fund before the end of the
fisc°l year and by a  special block purchase of College Library
material;  2,197 orders were placed from used-book catalogs.
The  Division handled 25,233 volumes,   of which 21,213 were
forwarded to Cataloging,  the remainder receiving special
Gifts totaled 3,914 volumes   (2,991),  and the  number
handled in the Division came to $,909   (3,114).    Under Mr,
Stephen Johnson the backlog of accumulated gifts has been
virtually eliminated,  and the program of circulating duplicate  lists to libraries throughout the world has brought
good results both in books sent and acquired.    Relations
with the British National Book Centre have been particularly
profitable.    Official exchanges of new publications with Japan
and mainland China were  inaugurated.
With procedures being  continually under study,  a  new
requisition form was designed,  better adapted to the  control
of bibliographic  checking by non-professional staff.
The Division manages,   on the  side,  the  Library Delivery
Service for faculty,  and  12,471 pieces were sent out  (11,397)
and a  similar number received.    With new buildings rising,  the
40 established delivery points may tend to increase, which may 23
require more delivery time and a  considerably increased cost.
The shipping of books  for in-service  courses to  various parts
of the Province for the  College of Education also fell to this
Division during the year.
The Division is now faced with the enormous task of
acquiring most of the  40,000 volumes required for the  College
Library before the opening of the new wing in the  fall of I960,
It must  also begin to process the Thomas Murray and P'u-pan
collections and adjust itself to a  normally increased budget
for the coming year.
Of a total of 13  staff members,   there were 6 resignations
within the year and an exchange of one member with another
Division.    Miss Eleanor Mercer, with Miss Priscilla  Scott as
chief assistant until July 1,  1959,  afterwards Mr. George
Turner,  and  other staff,   carried through in a  very creditable
way the ever increasing acquisitions program.
Loan Division
Loan Division is the student's most direct means of contact with the world of books.    Viewed from behind the public
desk,  the responsibility of the  staff is both for loan and
return in order that the book stock may be constantly avail-
for redistribution
Over 266,000 loans were made at the Loan and Reserve
desks during the year:
1-year 2-year
195S/59      Increase    1957/5$    Increase    1956/57
Loan Desk        160,'$22 9$ 147,522        29$ 124,407
Reserve Room 105.609 3$ 97.668        17$ 90.023
Total 266,431 8$ 245,190        25.4$      200,063 24
Comparing the biennial increase of 25$ in the number of loans
with the accompanying 29$ growth of the student body shows what
the problem will be to keep abreast of University expansion.
Larger classes clamoring for the same list of books, more
students in the bookstacks misplacing volumes on the shelves,
$nd absenteeism among a growing body of part-time student
assistants increase the problems of operation,
A greater emphasis upon the training of student assistants
and the definition of responsibility for them and the full-time
staff have paid off well, although turnover of staff in both
categories is a serious handicap. It has been necessary to
substitute repeated shelf-reading in much used areas of the
book collection for the annual inventory, and most of the
bookstacks have been kept in good working order.  (A partial
check showed 734 volumes missing at the end of August.)  A
shift of all books on two stack levels was necessary to accommodate new books received.
The purchase of duplicate copies of a group of volumes
in the Reserve Book collection (some for the College Library)
has permitted many titles to be returned to the general book-
stacks.  A study of materials placed on reserve indicates (1)
that many are not in sufficient demand to warrant this restricted treatment (and they have been removed), and (2) a
wider range of titles for certain courses would make the
assignments more productive.
A system was devised to provide a stock of books for
evening students, and larger numbers of books must be placed
in this "due at 5:00 p.m." category if students and courses
increase.  Collections in some Departmental reading rooms must
be placed under more responsible control if these depositories
are to be continued.  And a scheme for collecting fines when
overdue books are returned (charging an excise for later payment) may help reduce the heavy cost of billing; 3,228 bills
were sent during the year.
Miss Mabel Lanning, with the help of Mr. Inglis Bell,
First Assistant, and the staff, have come through a very busy
year with a more efficient organization and a new record of
accomplishment, Mr. Leonard Williams, Stack Attendant, has
managed the bookstack well, and most of the staff have served
with essential friendliness and requisite courage at the
bookstack entry. 25
Serials Division
The backbone of a university library is its periodical files,
without which it could not stand alone as a research collection.
New titles and back volumes must be continually added to provide
adequate strength for academic growth
The total number of periodical titles received is 4,965
(4,750 in 1957/58), with 227 new subscriptions placed during
the year (227). Of these, 3,662 are received by paid subscription, 1,194 by gift, and 109 by exchange. The new titles
(see list, Appendix B) range over a wide subject area, but they
include only the most pressing wants expressed by members of
faculty. Volumes of journals added totaled 10,913 (11,710),
A list of the most notable back files acquired is found as
Appendix C-l
Loans of unbound issues totaled 10,411, compared with
12,532 last year. This was the second year in which current
numbers have been open to all those have stack access (3d
and 4th year students and upward). This has brought an unknown amount of unrecorded use in the bookstacks, but the loss
of journal issues is heavy and expensive, creating a serious
handicap in binding and uninterrupted use.
The receipt of journals in several scientific fields was
reviewed during the year while helping to prepare a basic list
of journals for a committee of the National Research Council,
Our holdings of these fundamental journals is fairly complete,
but we do not rate so well for the less common titles and for
those published in languages other than English, French, and
German, There are serious gaps in our list of Russian publications, both in the original language and in English translation.
With quantity, the problems of binding increase. While
most library material must sometime be bound, it is difficult
to take it out of circulation long enough to put it through
the binding process. Journals, reference works, theses,
"rebinds", and paperbacks all present their particular problems
of timing, and these are as serious as those of handling and 26
cost.  In seven years the Bindery's output has increased nearly
300$ (from 3,008 volumes to 11,099 in full binding), but backlogs of current material are developing, and large numbers of
books need to be rebound.  Increased binding facilities may
soon be required.
Mr, Roland Lanning has made a unique contribution in
developing the University's journal collections °nd has
accumulated invaluable experience in the doing. He is
ably assisted in the administration of the Division by Mr.
Basil Stuart-Stubbs, First Assistant, and has the cooperative
support of his staff.
University Library Bindery. During the fiscal year
11,099 volumes in full binding were processed (10,392) and
919 in storage covers (1,139). With a fully experienced
Bindery staff, two new pieces of basic equipment, and continuing improvements in operational methods, the output has
again increased.  An expansion of work space at the end of
the report year reduces for a time one of the severe limitations upon the amount of material which can be handled.
Simplified methods for processing paperbacks are being studied,
and forthcoming alterations in the Library building will
eliminate the long haul now required between the Bindery and
Preparation units.
Great credit is given to Mr. Percy Fryer who heads an
ever more efficient and productive binding department, and to
Mr, Percy Fryer, Jr., whose ability and imagination have on
several occasions effected important improvements and stayed
serious interruptions. Two journeywomen binders and an
apprentice are the other components of this important Library-
Cataloging Division
Catalogers assemble the components of the book collection
into a functioning library so that it can be put to work by
an unpredictable variety of users. 27
In 1958/59 the Division cataloged and classified
24.625 volumes of books (22,659) and'11,787 of serials
(12,231), a total production of 36,412 (35,374). The
backlog of unprocessed materials, which has in the past
held as many as 5,000 volumes, and during this year
reached 2,500, has been reduced to zero.
As the result of much planning and experimentation
during the last two years, great progress has been made in
overhauling and simplifying procedures.  By this means, not
only has the backlog of uncataloged materials been eliminated,
but no accumulation of books awaiting the ordering of
Library of Congress cards has been allowed to form, the
piling up of materials awaiting the production of catalog
cards has been kept to a minimum, and the Slavic backlog
has disappeared. Books in the School of Architecture reading room h=>ve been processed and entered in the Library's
main catalog, a beginning has been made on materials in
Chemical Engineering, and hundreds of musical scores have
been recataloged.  A careful division of labor, with
specific assignments for individuals and groups of staff
members, has been carried out.
Backlogs are possible at many stages in the cataloging
process, and they can be held in check only by careful organization, eternal vigilance, and the conscientious services
of experienced staff. With materials pouring in by single
volumes and by thousands, an adequate organization is of
prime importance at this point. The Thomas Murray and
P'u-pan collections are of course yet largely untouched.
Alert and vigorous leadership has been given by Mrs.
Turner in bringing about the changes and accomplishments
herein noted. The senior professional staff, Mr. G. G,
Turner (who transferred to Acquisitions in July), Miss
Geraldine Dobbin, and Mrs. Margaret Little, with other professional and non-professional staff, have given their full
support.  Two of the non-professional staff received well
earned promotions. 28
Biomedical Library
The Biological Sciences and Medicine comprise the major
area of knowledge over which the services of the Biomedical Library will extend. Concerned chiefly with
developing library facilities for the Faculty of
Medcine since its origin in 1950, it now operates through
two outlets: on the campus and, at the Vancouver General
Hospital, through the Biomedical Library Branch.
Following the general campus pattern, there was no
let-up of use during the recent summer period, and statistics show a heavy increase throughout the entire year.
Without a full complement of staff during the holiday
period, and with resignations causing an added drain, it
was impossible to keep schedules up to date.
Recorded use of materials at the Branch (where it can
be readily gauged) was 14,954 (compared with 10,776 last
year), and there were 2,8§5 loans during the three summer
months of May, June, July (1,900 in 1957/58). The increase
probably derived from changing teaching methods for the
lower years, expanding research programs, and a growing
interest in post-graduate education.  Interlibrary loans
numbered 375 items lent (261) and 74 borrowed (79). Tabulated use of journals, by date of publication (totaling
8,153 volumes borrowed at the Branch, chiefly clinical in
nature), shows that 28$ of use was of material published in
the current year (25$), 64$ of volumes were dated 1948-1958
(68$), 5.5$ were issued from 1938 to 194$ (5$), and 2$ were
for all previous years (2$). There was a great upswing in
the number of reference questions asked, 4,997 (1,981).
Bibliographical lectures numbered 5 (1 in 1st year Medicine,
2 in Nursing, 1 in Pharmacology, 1 in Physiology).
Additions to the collection in the field of Medicine
totaled 2,773 (3,050), bringing this section up to 35,715
(32,942). Thirty new journal titles were added and one
cancelled. Titles in the Medical field total 1,292, with
another 580 relevant titles in the Biological Sciences. 29
Twelve lists of acquisitions were issued (8 , totaling
61 pages (32).
Both the Biomedical Librarian and University Librarian
continued to work with a committee of the College of
Physicians and Surgeons toward the establishment of a
Provincial Medical Library Service, supported by the
College and available to all of its members. It was
coming close to realization at the end of the academic year.
Two special committees provide guidance and support
for the Biomedical Library, one representing the Faculty
of Medicine (Dr, Sydney Friedman, chairman, Dr. William
Gibson, and Dr. J. W, whitelaw), and one a President's
Committee on the Biomedical Branch Library, representing
the organizations which contribute to the support of the
Branch (Dr, Whitelaw, chairman).  As part of the University Library, the Biomedical Library also comes under the
Senate Library Committee.
Miss Doreen Fraser, Biomedical Librarian, continues
to work closely with all local medical library groups, and
takes an active part in the Pacific northwest, Canadian,
and American organizations. Her staff of librarians, Miss
Maria Laddy and Miss Helen Allan, and the non-professional
members have given an excellent account of themselves under
difficult conditions.
The Extension Library
For twenty-two years the University Library and the Department of Extension have provided an extension library service
to persons in the province without "adequate" local facilities. During that time the Extension Library has kept
a continuing supply of books in the hands of many avid
readers and provided materials needed for Extension and
correspondence courses. 30
After many years in temporary quarters, the Extension
Library has at last moved into space specifically designed
for its use. Close to the general book collection, to the
processing departments, and to shipping facilities, with
ample shelving and work areas, and with a door opening upon
campus traffic lanes, service should be more pleasant to
give and more effective.
During the year there was an increase from 465 to 502
general borrowers and from 142 to 152 in the drama group.
General loans totaled 13,954 (13,555), pl*ys. 5,62l"(5,678),
and books for correspondence courses, 1,703 (1,364). In
the last category, the most active were English 200 ($41
volumes). Education 520 (404), English 429 (146), and
History 304 (100), There were 2,390 volumes borrowed for
the Extension Library service from the main University
Libra ry.
"Your books have kept me from becoming completely
'bushed,'" wrote a borrower from an interior ranch. "The
availability of your service has never meant so much to
me as it has since living in Coal Harbour ,.. a very small
place, in the winter only about 50 people ..." From the
west coast of Vancouver Island: "I think the Library is
wonderful, especially to an old and rather lonely woman."
"I regret that because of failing eye sight I must withdraw from your family of readers. I would like to take
this opportunity to thank you for unfailing kindness ...
over so long a period,"  And: "The Government have begun
sending me cheques for fifty-five dollars, so I am celebrating by enclosing five dollars .,. towards a new book
for the library which means so much to me,"
Miss Edith Stewart, Extension Librarian since 194$,
is very widely and warmly regarded by an important if not
always influential group of British Columbia citizens.
She and her assistant form one of the firmest links the
University has with the province it serves. 31
The Curriculum Laboratory
The Curriculum Laboratory is not a library in the normal
sense but a collection of prescribed and supplementary
text books and related material, maintained for the
benefit of student teachers enrolled in the College of
Education. Opened in the fall of 1956, at the time of
the establishment of the College, it has existed in
crowded temporary quarters and last year served an
enrollment of 1,445 students.
Loans during the year totaled 34,567  (31,495  the
previous year)  from a  collection of 8,774 volumes;  1,521
items were added during the period.     Losses have been
heavy,   534 volumes not having been returned  (574 in
1957/58).     A picture collection of 13,000 classified and
mounted items has been built up,  with some  5,000 additional
pictures being mounted but unlabeled;  most of the work of
preparation has been done during the year just completed.
Although students crowd  into the  laboratory throughout the year,  most of the  loans are made just prior to
the  "practicum"  periods,   so that  peak loads  characterize
the  service given, when thousands of volumes are borrowed or
returned within a few days time,    Mrs.   Anneke Bertsch
managed the  service with  strength and  imagination throughout the year,  with one  full-time assistant  and  part-time
student aids.    It has not been possible to fill the position
of professional librarian which has been available for two
years.    Mr. Walter Lanning,  of the  College of Education,
has worked as liaison between the College and Library with
interest and understanding. 32
In Acknowledgment
Forty-four years provide the background for this annual
survey, and in that eventful period many persons and
events have made the Library what it is.  The range of
acknowledgments is therefore both wide and long.
Heading the list for this year just passed is Dr.
Samuel Rothstein (whose manifold accomplishments unfortunately go unmentioned elsewhere in this report) and Miss
Anne Smith, followed by the Division Heads and members
of staff named in the attached list. President MacKenzie,
the Finance Committee, the Board of Governors, and the
departments of administration have never failed in their
support when needed. The Senate Library Committee and
many individual faculty members have given time and
thought to developing the collections and service.
Through the Friends of the Library great gains have
been made, particularly because of the interest of Mr.
Walter C. Koerner, Chairman of the Committee on Ways and
Means. To Dr. Wallace Wilson, past-President, Mr. Kenneth
Caple, President of the Friends, and to other Council
members warm appreciation is expressed. The special contributions of many individuals and groups have been acknowledged elsewhere in this report.
The Senate is the University's highest academic
authority and the guardian of its standards, and it must,
therefore, be the Library's foremost advocate and defender.
This support has never yet failed,
