 HJ.B.C LIBRARY NEWS
Volume 6, No. 2
March - April, 1973
Vancouver, B.C.
THE LIBRARY AND THE ASIAN CENTRE
As many Library News readers may already be aware, an Asian Centre is to be constructed at UBC
"to promote scholarship on Asia and Asian-Canadian cultural understanding".  While the construction
timeline has yet to be established, the terms of donation for some of the funds to be employed require
that $600,000 be expended by March 31, 1974, so that one might hope to see the project completed in
1975. The centre will be housed in what was the Sanyo Pavilion at Expo '70, or at least those portions of
the Sanyo Pavilion which are transportable. In addition to this gift from Sanyo, the University has
received
$200,000 from the Expo '70 Fund
$600,000 from the Japanese Federation of Economic Organizations
$400,000 from the Canadian Federal Government, and
$400,000 from the British Columbia Provincial Government.
Local donors are being sought for the remaining $300,000 required to cover the $1,900,000 construction
cost.
The Centre will house the administrative, study and research activities of the Department of
Asian   Studies   and   the   Institute   of  Asian  and  Slavonic Research, as well as providing space for the
activities of the Departments of Music, Fine Arts, and Theatre, which are related to Asia. Essentially,
this will involve the provision of multi-use performance areas for Music and Theatre, and Fine Arts
Display areas, to serve academic and community needs.
Of  interest  to  Library users is the provision of space for the UBC Asian Studies Library in the
Centre. At present the size of the Asian Studies collection is somewhat in excess of 160,000 volumes. Plans
are being drawn up to accommodate it at its expected level for 1980 of 240,000 volumes, at which point
use will probably be made of compact storage facilities. One hundred study spaces will be provided
of which twenty will be carrels for faculty members and visiting scholars. The Library will also
contain seminar facilities, and a Commemorative Collections Room, as presently envisaged.
The site for the Asian Centre is a portion of the Fraser River Parking Lot adjacent to the
southwest corner of the Nitobe Gardens.

START HERE
Anyone who has yet to discover them might be interested to learn that the UBC Library produces a
series of brief Library guides to materials available on topics of current interest. These guides, called
Start Here's,   are  modelled   on  the  MIT   Library Pathfinders and designed to provide an introduction
to basic sources, works, and search techniques in specific research areas. Copies of start Here's may
be   obtained  from  the   issuing reference division (indicated by abbreviation: SD = Science Division, HD =
Humanities Division, SSD = Social Sciences Division, FA = Fine Arts). Any faculty members anticipating
heavy information demands in particular topic areas might consider contacting Tom Eadie in the
Information and Orientation Division, local 2076, or the appropriate reference division, to see whether
a Start Here should be prepared.
To date, the following Start Here's have been produced:
Geology of Vancouver      SD Native Peoples of Canada     Sp. Coll.
Physical  Distribution and Logistics SSD Islamic Studies HD
Organizational Behaviour  SSD Hinduism   HD
Films      HD Underground or Alternative Press   Sp. Coll.

LIBRARY REFERENCE GUIDES
Over the course of the last academic year, the Library has published a number of reference guides to
materials in the UBC Library collection. These include a revision of A Doukhobor Bibliography (Part I)
and  Part  III  in  this   series,   The Doukhobor File,  both compiled and annotated by Mrs. Maria Horvath
(Kristinkovitch)   of  the   Humanities   Reference  Division   and issued in 1972 and 1973 respectively. The
Guide to Reference Materials in Sociology compiled by Wendy Chambers and Lillian Mclntyre of the
Social Science Division also appeared in the fall of 1972, as did Joan Sandilands' Guide to Reference
Materials in Comparative and General Literature  (Humanities Division).  The  second half of the year
saw the publication of the Doukhobor File mentioned above, and an inventory of the papers of Malcolm
Lowry held by the UBC Library, entitled Malcolm Lowry 1909 - 1957 prepared by Judy Combs of Special
Collections. All of these bibliographies are available at the respective reference divisions which issued
them, and reference copies are held by most reference divisions and at the Information Desk.
Two other works published by the Library in the course of the last year which might be of interest
to   Library  patrons   are  Data Library Holdings,   a catalogue of the data sets currently held by the UBC
Data Library, and A Bibliography of Indexes and Abstracts on Asian Studies.  While not in the standard
reference guide series, these publications may be consulted at the Data Library and the Asian Studies
Division respectively.
UBC Library reference guides are designed to make available on a wider (and portable) basis the results of the research carried out by reference librarians in the course of their work. Those wishing
a complete listing of these publications may obtain one from Tom Eadie at local 2076.
BOOK PROCESSING SPACE
At its last meeting, the Board of Governors established a President's Planning Coordinating
Committee   "to  identify  the needs of the Processing Section in the Main Library". This response to
the  problems  of overcrowding in technical service areas of the Library is the first step towards the
provision of new space for the Processing Divisions, the Systems Division, the Bibliography Division
and  possibly  the   Prebindery and Bindery.  The Committee, which will be chaired by the Librarian, is
composed of the following persons:
W. Armstrong, Deputy President
R. Seaton, Academic Planning
I.   McT. Cowan, Dean, Graduate Studies
N. Smith, Director, Physical Plant
R. Stokes, School of Librarianship
R. MacDonald, Library
W. Watson, Library
At the first meeting of this Committee, on April 19, a User's Committee was established. This Committee,
will be chaired by Mr. Watson.
The User's Committee, which consists of the heads of all units included in the building plus representatives  from  Academic   Planning  and  Physical  Plant,  will have the responsibility of drawing up a
detailed functional programme for the desired space. When this programme is approved by the Planning
Coordinating Committee and the Board of Governors, a budget will be established and an architect
appointed. Every effort will be made to proceed quickly, in order to provide new space at the earliest
possible date. Progress reports will be made in the Library News.
As a temporary measure, some staff members in the Processing Division will move to the lower
reading room of the old Sedgewick Library. Renovations in this area will begin immediately.
SERIALS WANTED
The following out-of-print journals are needed to complete the Library's holdings:
Canadian Association of University Teachers (C.A.U.T.). Newsletter. Any issues for 1970-1972.
Enterprise, vol.31 no.l (January, 1971).
New Statesman, vol.83 no.2137 (March 3, 1972).
Psychology Today, any recent issues, especially vol.6 no.3 (August, 1972).
Anyone with issues to donate should contact Graham Elliston at 228-2304.
BUDDHISM RECLASSIFIED
The Library of Congress has abandoned BL 1400 as a classification for materials on Buddhism and
established a new schedule in the until now unused letters BQ. New materials classified at the Library
of Congress will now begin appearing on the shelf at that number. In a few weeks time when our copies
of the BQ schedule have arrived and been bound, the Library will begin reclassifying the 1100 titles now
in the BL 1400 numbers. Approximately a third of these are in the Asian Studies Library.  The reclassification  is   expected  to  take   about   seven  months. Those accustomed to browsing through materials on
Buddhism will thus have two places to look during the next few months.
