At its meeting of October 13,  1976 Senate recommended that a committee be
established to study the implications of the following proposal:-
1. That Senate adopt the principle that the Bookstore is an academic service
to the university analagous to that of the library and the computing centre,
contributing resources of a broad educational character.
2. That Senate form an ad hoc Committee to examine the implications of the
above principle, and in particular the proposal that there be the following
policies:
(a) to finance the building requirements of the bookstore in the same
manner as those of the library and computing centre,
(b) to administer the bookstore through the Vice-President for
University Development, that is the Vice-President in charge
of academic university affairs, and with the regular advice of
Senate,
(c) to reconstitute the bookstore committee as a Senate Committee
with a similar structure to that of the Senate Library Committee
and reporting to Senate,

Professors teaching graduate courses or supervising graduate theses, all
Instructors and Lecturers actively engaged in the supervision of graduate

Meaning of "full-time employee"  - Board of Governors election
The committee had considered section 20 (f) of the Universities Act
which stated that a Board of Governors shall include:    "One person elected
by and from the full-time employees of the university who are not faculty
members."
It was stated in the report that under section 43 of the Universities Act
Senate was responsible for the definition of "full-time employee" for the
election of a representative to the Board of Governors.
The committee made the following recommendation:-
"A full-time employee of the university means:   an individual other
than a "faculty member" or a member of the "Student Association",
as defined by the Universities Act, engaged in the service of The
University of British Columbia, whose name appears on a University
payroll at the end of the calendar month immediately preceding the
call for nominations providing that a call for nominations may be
made only between October 1 and April 30, inclusive;   and that an
individual engaged by the hour must have been paid for at least
one hundred and thirty (130) hours during the calendar month
immediately prior to the call for nominations."

Student membership on the Board of Governors
At the request of the Board of Governors the committee reconsidered
its recommendations concerning student membership on the Board of Governors
approved at the April 20, 1977 meeting of Senate.
In the light of the questions raised by the Board of Governors the
committee recommended that the resolutions be revised to read as follows:-
1) that until the Universities Act is changed, a student representative
on the Board of Governors be considered to have vacated his seat
on the Board when he ceases to be a duly registered student at the
University;
2) that a vacancy for a student position on the Board be filled by the
Alma Mater Society through an election, the winning candidate to
hold office until the next regular election;
3) that in 1) above, a student who completes a Winter Session as a duly
registered student "ceases to be a duly registered student" when he
does not register in the registration period of the immediately
succeeding Winter Session.
During the following discussion it was agreed that recommendation 3
be changed to read:    "that in 1) above, a student who completes a Winter
Session as a duly registered student "ceases to be a duly registered student"
when he does not register as a full-time student in the registration period
of the immediately succeeding Winter Session."
Mr. Sheppard   ) That the recommendations of the Committee
Dr. Pearse        ) on the Implementation of the Universities Act
concerning student membership on the Board
of Governors be approved.

Library Committee
Review of Loan Regulations and recommended modifications
It was stated in the report that Senate and the Board of Governors had
approved revisions to the loan regulations effective January, 1976, for a
trial period of one year.  A review committee was established in January, 1977,
and took the following steps:
Computer and manual library circulation files for 1974-5 and
1976-7 were compared and analyzed;
Public service library staff were surveyed;
Correspondence received by the Senate Library Committee was
reviewed;    and
-    A questionnaire was distributed asking library users to indicate
their library experiences under the new policy, and to give their
opinions about the present lending and overdue penalties policy.
3,849 responses were received and analyzed.
The Senate Library Committee endorsed the review committee's report
and recommended that the present loan regulations be continued but with the
following modifications:
1. Loan Periods to Faculty
The committee recognizes the concern of a minority of faculty who
report that the new regulations have had an adverse effect upon their work.
In view of that concern, the following modifications are recommended:
a)    A grace period of 7 days following a call-in be granted to faculty
on home use books with the exception of one week loans from
Sedgewick and Curriculum Laboratory.  The grace period should
not apply to serials and reserve books in any library.1
1.   The one week books in Sedgewick and Curriculum Lab, as well as reserve
books everywhere, are course-related and generally heavily used by
undergraduates.   Availability is also a problem with serials.    In the
opinion survey, borrowers reported significantly less success in finding
serials on the first attempt than books.   Therefore, the given due dates
should be adhered to with these materials. 6822.
Wednesday, May 25, 1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Library Committee
Review of Loan Regulations and  recommended modifications
1. Loan Periods to Faculty   (continued)
b) In order to ensure that faculty have two-week books for at least
2 weeks, call-ins should not be issued before the eighth day
after borrowing.    (The 7 days added to 8 days would give a 15
day loan period.)
c) Any faculty member failing to respond to a call-in within the
grace period should be billed at the rate of one dollar per day
from the day following the last day of grace.
d) In order to avoid confusion between call-in notices and reminder
notices, faculty should not be sent reminder notices on material
for which they have a grace period.
e) Books for which faculty are given a grace period would still be
subject to the end of term call-ins.
Although the committee endorses the principle of equal treatment,
nevertheless, it strongly recommends that a grace period on overdue books
should not be extended to other borrowers.   We believe that a grace period,
which in effect is a term loan subject to call-in when requested, would result
in more books being kept off the libraries' shelves for a longer period of time.
Since borrowing by faculty constitutes 6 to 7% of all loans, granting a grace
period to them would not have as serious an effect upon the availability of
books as would the granting of a grace period to all borrowers.   Moreover,
faculty receive notices more quickly than do borrowers with off-campus
addresses.   A related problem with off-campus addresses is the frequency
with which many students change their addresses and the serious problems
this causes the library in trying to maintain up-to-date files.
2. Suspension of Borrowing Privileges
In addition to suspending borrowing privileges for failure to return
material called-in for another borrower, privileges should be suspended for
failure either to return books following the end of term call-in, or to pay the
bills for replacement.   The committee is concerned about the fact that so few
bills are being paid, and feels that if stronger efforts are not made to enforce
the regulations, then the effectiveness of the system will eventually be eroded.
The intention is not to suspend privileges immediately after issuance of a bill,
but to allow a reasonable time for the delinquent borrower to respond before
suspending him. 6823.
Wednesday, May 25, 1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Library Committee
Review of Loan Regulations and recommended modifications   (continued)
3. Appeals
The first appeal should continue to be made to the staff member in
charge of overdues in the library branch or division from which the bill
was issued. The staff member should be empowered to cancel bills only
in the case of library error.
Further appeals should be made in writing to the branch head or
librarian in charge of Circulation for the division.   The librarian should
follow guidelines which have been approved by the Senate Library Committee.
These guidelines indicate which reasons are acceptable for granting appeals
and which are not.
There should be an appeals committee which should meet as necessary
to consider appeals from borrowers who are not satisfied with the decision of
a division head.   The appeals committee would also receive from division
heads, appeals which are not covered by the guidelines.
Borrowers should continue to be notified in writing of the results of
their written appeals.
4. Processing Fee for Lost Books
When overdue books are reported lost after a call-in notice has been
issued, or when books are presumed lost because no response has been
received from the end of term call-in, then the borrower should be billed
the cost of replacement plus a processing fee of ten dollars per book.  However,
should books be returned following issuance of such a bill, but before the
replacement has been ordered, then not only should the replacement charges
be cancelled, but also the processing fee should be reduced to ten dollars
for the first book, plus two dollars for each additional book.
If books are returned before replacements have been ordered, the
Library is spared the cost of processing the orders and cataloguing the
replacements, so it is not necessary to collect the full processing fee.
5. End of Term Call-in
Reminder notices for all overdue books should continue to be issued
three times a year, - in December, April and August.   However, bills for
the replacement of unreturned books which are presumed lost, should be
issued only in April and August.   It has been found that much staff time is
wasted in processing replacement bills in December and then cancelling 6824.

5. End of Term Call-in    (continued)
them when the books are brought in for renewal in January.   Since so many
courses run from September to April, a higher portion of recalled books are
renewed following the December call-in than following the April or August
call-ins.
As for the reminder notices, the December notices have resulted in a
substantial return of books and the committee believes that every four months
is not too often to remind borrowers of books they may have forgotten.
6. Reminder Notices
In the case of books not yet requested by another borrower, the
reminder notice should be sent no more than seven days after the due date,
rather than ten days.2
2.   No reminder notice should be sent for any loan for which a faculty member
has a grace period.    (See 1. d) above.)
Mr. Stuart-Stubbs   )      That the loan regulations be ratified by Senate
Dr. McGregor )      and forwarded to the Board of Governors for

Curriculum Committee
Review of Programs
Dr. Runeckles explained that as requested by Senate at its meeting of
October 13, 1976 the committee had examined the question of program reviews,
It was stated in the report that the intent of the motion was to establish
policy with regard to the review of programs, both new and existing, with
recommendations as to the desirability and nature of such reviews, the
mechanisms for conducting reviews where deemed appropriate, and the
timing of such reviews. 6825.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Review of Programs   (continued)
The committee made the following recommendations:
1. That Senate adopt the principle of the necessity for periodic review
of all academic programs.
2. That the motion for approval of a new program by Senate state the date
by which such a review is to be completed, this date to be normally
not more than two years beyond the completion of the program by
initial registrants.
3. That this policy with regard to new programs be made retroactive to
include those programs approved by Senate since September, 1976.
4. That the review of a program be conducted by a program review
committee appointed by the Dean of the appropriate Faculty, such
committee to include one or more representatives of the Senate
Curriculum Committee, and one or more reviewers external to the
program.
5. That wherever possible, the review of existing programs be a
component of the general review of Departments, Schools and Faculties,
and that the review committees struck for this wider purpose include

Tribute to Malcolm F.  McGregor
Dr. Clark read to Senate the following tribute to Professor Malcolm F.
McGregor on the occasion of his last meeting as a member of the University
Senate: -
In ancient Rome there dwelt a god
Whom men in prayer would daily laud.
Protector of each native hearth,
'Gainst foes without, domestic strife.
Janus his name, the home his fief.
Within our Senate who was starred
To serve this role, ever on guard
To keep all rash intruders out.
And safeguard purity of speech?
I ask you all, I ask you each. 6829.

Tribute to Malcolm F.  McGregor   (continued)
Some who have heard in Senate read
His tribute to our recent dead.
Nobility in each made known.
Have thought, perhaps, with gentle laugh,
I wish he'd write my epitaph!
To class he strides in flowing gown
To shed the light on verb and noun
In Grecian saga, Roman tale.
The truths by which men lived and died
Are in his lectures vivified.
Malcolm McGregor is the name.
Justly deserving our acclaim!
Good comrade on life's learning road.
Our thanks, with heartfelt emotion
For your years of high devotion.
The Chairman also paid tribute to Professor McGregor.
