Array University Librarian To Step Down in 1997
New Series No. 421 October 1996
Dr. Ruth Patrick announced at the
end of May that she had decided
against pursuing another term as
University Librarian.
However, she will remain as head of
the Library until June 30,1997 in order to
see the system through the completion
of three significant projects:
♦ Transfer of high-use Main Library
collections and services into the
new Walter C. Koerner Library
♦ Agreement on a system-wide
master space plan
♦ Changeover to the new DRA online
computer operating system
From July 1,1997 until June 30,1998,
Ruth plans to take administrative
leave. She will then return to the
Library, although it's too early to
define what her new position will be.
It is probably true to say that no
University Librarian in recent
memory has had to deal with so
many fundamental changes within a
7-year term.
This issue of the News will highlight
where we've been and where we're
headed in 1996, with an outlook for
the coming year.
Message from the University Librarian
I hope you have been able to tour the first part of the Walter C. Koerner
Library, completed this summer. The word that most people use to describe
this wonderful new building is "Spectacular"! Delightful to the eye from the
outside, it is also functionally pleasing to students, faculty and staff, who love
the efficient, light-filled space and the people- and computer-friendly design.
Problems arise from time to time, as can be expected from such a major
change, but we're settling in. My thanks to all the users for their patience and
understanding during this disruption to their Library services, and to all the
Library staff for their mighty efforts to maintain business as usual.
I am looking forward to the completion of the second part of the Phase 1
Walter C. Koerner Library, and moving in the remaining services, staff and
collections that will fill the new building. Please mark March 10th on your
calendar, and plan to attend our Walter C. Koerner Library Official Opening Day
Celebration. And until then, have a great Fall Term in the Library. Cheers.

People 8 Moving Into Koerner: One Down, One To Go
At the end of June the Library
accomplished the first in a series of
two long-awaited moves into the
new seven-storey Walter C. Koerner
Library. This summer's shift of staff
and collections saw the Sedgewick
Undergraduate Library vacate its 23-
year old underground space, transfer
all people and contents to the
adjoining Koerner tower, move in the
PS (Canadian and American literature)
collection from the Main Library, and
remove any Sedgewick science,
applied science, mathematics and
fine arts materials back to Main.
Renovation crews are already hard at
work stripping and refurbishing the
former Sedgewick space. The next
and final move — due over the 1996/97
Christmas break if schedules can be
maintained — will result in two
complementary libraries, Koerner and
Main, each with a cluster of distinct
resources and services.
Koerner will become the flagship
humanities and social sciences
resource library. Its larger role is as
Phase I in a two-phase plan to
rehouse the University's central
research library collections.
After the 1996/97 final move out,
Main will concentrate on pure and
applied sciences, some older
humanities/social sciences
collections, and specialized areas
such as Maps and Fine Arts. This has
the added advantage of spreading
out loading in a building which is, to
put it politely, well past its prime.
Where are we in this process? Here's
a checklist of what's available now in
each location, and what's planned:
♦ Former Sedgewick Library (undergraduate) humanities,
social sciences, and supporting collections
♦ New home of PS (Canadian/American literature)
collection from Main Stacks
♦ Wilson Recordings Collection
♦ ALL course reserve except Fine Arts, and film and video
booking operations for both libraries
♦ New computer lab with 20 workstations and student
e-mail access
♦ 150 wired study carrels
♦ Librarian's Office and related functions
♦ Sorry: no in-house eating facilities
(We're working on substitutes nearby)
Undergraduate science collection, all
computer science materials, most graduate
materials in arts/social sciences/sciences
Still holds Fine Arts, Government
Publications, Humanities/Social Sciences,
Science & Engineering, Maps, Data,
Special Collections, and other specialized
reference divisions
Study carrels in Main Stacks, plus more
study space in above reference areas
Supplementary computer teaching lab with
8-12 workstations
Interlibrary loans
All of the above (except Wilson Recordings Collection
& course reserve for Science), plus
Restricted to
♦ Complete runs of all active HSS serials
♦ Balance of highest-use HSS collection from Main
♦ Older research materials in humanities and
social sciences
♦ HSS reference staff and collection
♦ Government Publications, Microforms, and Data Library
staff and collections
♦ 900 state-of-the-art study carrels
♦ Teaching and Learning Centre, with 35 networked
♦ All pure, applied and computer sciences
books and journals, regardless of date
♦ Expanded study space
♦ Fine Arts, Maps, Special Collections, Archives,
and Science & Engineering divisions
♦ Course reserve for Fine Arts and Science
♦ Electronic Text and Multimedia Centre
♦ Wilson Recordings Collection
♦ Landscaping and new trees to replace ailing Main Mall oaks
♦ Interlibrary loans
♦ Basic circulation support services             ,,,
L-LfitX-  LI . ■ • Moving Into Koerner, cont'd
It goes without saying that 1996/97 will call for some flexibility on the part of both patrons and staff as we prepare for
the final move into Koerner. However, the last core library reorganization on this scale was in 1973, when UBC officially
opened Sedgewick. In other words, our present Main /Sedgewick configuration has been going since before most of
UBC's present undergraduates were born! It's time to offer all our users a contemporary research library, and to enlist
their help in planning Phase II. Please bear with us during the transition.
Scenes from June — the long-awaited move from Sedgewick Library into the new Walter C. Koerner tower.
Master Space Plan Update
Even when the completed Walter C.
Koerner Library (Phase I) opens, it
will only reshuffle a physical
collection that by 1996/97 has filled
existing library space to near-
Phase I will not be able to accept any
more material than we move into it
in the coming two or three years. Nor
can the Main Library be used as
expanded storage for less-used items
from around the system.
Although it is rated as sturdy as 40%
of Greater Vancouver buildings,
none of its four sections is built to
anywhere near existing codes. This
means that while we can transfer
high-use humanities and social
sciences materials out of the Main
Library to Koerner, we cannot use
the vacated space to warehouse other
UBC collections. If anything, we need
to lighten the loading throughout the
building — some sections of which
are 70 years old — and spread out
the remaining holdings and services.
This makes it more urgent than ever
to push forward with an overall
space plan for the library system.
After numerous consultations, a
draft document is in circulation
outlining issues and options. The
Senate Library Committee will be
reviewing this in the months to
come. Some key points are:
♦     Wholesale conversion to a
virtual electronic library is not
yet possible. Much of the
material considered fundamental
to a graduate research library is
not yet available in electronic
format, nor is the on- and off-
campus infrastructure capable of
supporting UBC's huge data
transfer requirements.
♦     Meanwhile, to meet user needs,
the Library must continue to
purchase essential current
material at the rate of some
250,000 items a year. This
displaces almost the same
amount of material on steadily
more overcrowded stack shelves.
Closed storage space is at a
premium or already full, and as
has been noted, the Main Library
is no longer a viable option for
bulk shelving of older research
The proposed Master Space Plan will
need to balance these realities with
others, such as funding uncertainties,
technological advances versus costs,
and user demands. However, the
first set of choices will need to be
made by the end of 1996, as they
involve the nature and location of
Main Library services after the final
move to Koerner. Copyright '96: What's Legal, What's Not, and What's Changing
While a patron may legally make a single copy of various types of material, it is
not necessarily legal for a library to copy the same items on behalf of that patron.
After years of delay and discussion,
the second half of Canada's revised
copyright legislation was introduced
into the House of Commons in April.
Just to recap: the first set of revisions
to the 1924 Copyright Act appeared
in 1988. This set up the framework
for copyright collectives such as
CANCOPY, and established what the
penalties would be for violation of
the right to reproduce materials.
However, it has taken eight years to
reach some sort of consensus as to
what levels of copying constitute
reasonable access to information and
which ones call for compensation to
original creators.
While most of the press coverage has
focused on reproduction of audio
and video materials, the library
provisions of Bill C-32 have wide-
ranging implications. Key areas are
sections 29 (copyright as it pertains
to educational institutions) and 30
(libraries, archives and museums,
including libraries in educational
institutions). While many aspects of
the bill seem to address the needs of
both libraries and copyright holders
in a balanced way, there are some new
and potentially worrisome additions.
On the plus side, the "fair dealing"
concept has been retained. This
allows both individuals and libraries
to make a single copy of many types
of material for private use or review.
In addition, libraries can reproduce
material for the purpose of replacing
lost, threatened or damaged items;
the interlibrary loan function is
recognized; and institutions
apparently will not be held
accountable for illegal copying done
by patrons on public-use machines,
provided that a suitable sign is
posted advising of copyright
However, we need to pay attention
to potentially loaded new wording,
being introduced for the first time.
While a patron may legally make a
single copy of various types of
material, it is not necessarily legal for
a library to copy the same items on
behalf of that patron.
As the bill now stands, the single-
copy provision would not allow a
library to reproduce "a work of
fiction or poetry or a dramatic or
musical work" or "an article that was
published in a newspaper or
magazine within 12 months before
the copy was made". Clearly, if
doing this work on behalf of patrons
requires formal copyright permission
for each item, Canadian libraries are
looking at a whole new situation.
The complexities don't end there.
The Department of Canadian
Heritage background document
accompanying Bill C-32 explains that
material in "a scientific, technical or
scholarly journal" is not intended to
be bound by the 12-month date
restriction. However, the distinction
between a "magazine" and a
"journal" will be left up to
regulations which have not yet been
written. As the bill is already under
attack from publishers' and creators'
groups for exempting some
educational and library copying,
there is no assurance that academic
journals will be excluded from the
12-month rule when the regulations
are finally drawn up.
The bill has now passed second
reading and been referred to the
Commons Standing Committee on
Canadian Heritage. Public hearings
are about to begin, and will likely
run until late November. Although
numerous briefs in support of the
present wording have been submitted
by educational and library associations,
it's likely that o.ther stakeholders will
attempt to weaken or eliminate some
of the copying exemptions.
Those who would like to review the
text of the legislation and the
accompanying background paper
can find them on the Web at
Library News readers who wish to get
more involved are encouraged to write
to the two Ministers responsible: The
Honourable Sheila Copps, Minister,
Department of Canadian Heritage
and The Honourable John Manley,
Minister, Industry Canada. Both
mailing addresses are the same:
House of Commons, Confederation
Building, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0M5. Copying Right - HIGHLIGHTS
Until Bill C-32 emerges from the committee hearings and passes its third and final reading, copying at UBC will
continue to be governed by the agreement the University has signed with CANCOPY. A good outline of the main
points can be found in the brochure Copying Right, which is available in most major campus libraries and
departmental offices. Here are some highlights:
In return for an annual payment of $2.50 per year per FTE UBC student, CANCOPY allows for fair dealing with
any work for the purpose of private study and research, and for the making of one copy.
The extent of what is copied can be either 10% of the work or any of the following, whichever is greater:
♦ an entire single short story, play, poem, item of print music, reproduction of an art work, essay or article from a
book or periodical issue containing other works
♦ an entire newspaper article or page
♦ an entire entry from an encyclopedia, dictionary or similar reference work
♦ an entire chapter if it is equal to less than 20% of the work
Note: the above provisions do not permit systematic, cumulative copying from the same work so that the total exceeds the
allowable percentage of the whole.
♦ any copying outside these guidelines if the copyright holder is a member of CANCOPY
♦ any copying beyond the "fair dealing" provisions of the Copyright Act if the copyright holder is not a
CANCOPY member
Any UBC student, faculty or staff member planning to sell copied material is urged to check the Copying Right
guidelines first. CANCOPY requires that records be kept and royalties paid.
Because most guidelines limit "fair dealing" to the making of a single copy for individual use, libraries treat
multiple reserve copying with caution, and practices may differ. It's best to consult course reserve staff in your
branch before finalizing plans for course readings.
DRA Implementation Project Takes Shape
This scenario is sounding familiar:
large research library forsakes well-
worn but inadequate support system
and announces move to new facilities
in early 1997.
If you guessed that the initials of the
library might be UBC, you're right.
However, this is NOT another story
on the Main Library move out to
Koerner. It affects something almost
more basic than that: our sturdy but
ageing online catalogue system.
Within months of the move to
Koerner, we will need to say
goodbye to the integrated public and
staff-use online products developed
in-house over the past 30 years.
While they worked well in their era,
they are much too dependant on
computer operating systems that the
campus is now phasing out.
The most visible change will be
arriving next May, as the familiar
UBCLIB public catalogue disappears
and a product that uses popular
workstation-based systems such as
WWW makes its debut.
Out of several competitive systems,
the Library has selected DRA, a
commercial firm specializing in
online computer support systems for
large university libraries. DRA-based
ordering, processing and public
catalogue systems have been
adopted by the University of Alberta,
University of Toronto, and other
large North American research
libraries, with University of Illinois
about to come on-stream at the same
time as UBC.
The Library is using the DRA
implementation as an opportunity to
also introduce a new Web-based
interface to DRA and many of the
online services and systems already
available. Prior to the May
implementation date, the DRA
Public Services/Users Task Group
will be providing several
opportunities for the UBC
community to preview DRA and the
new Web interface and make
suggestions and comments. Watch
for more information on how you
can participate later in the term. Term Paper Research Clinic Teaches Search Skills
6 9
How can I find books on a topic?
"I'm doing a paper and I don't know
where to start." "Why can't I find
articles in the catalogue file on
Questions like these are asked and
answered daily at reference desks
around the Library, especially in the
fall session. The Term Paper
Research Clinic, offered to first and
second year Arts students, provides
individual help for students with
assignments requiring library
research while introducing them to
research methods in general.
Students sign up for a brief initial
appointment where they and a
librarian or library school (SLAIS)
student clarify the research topic and
agree on a time to meet again.
Between the two sessions, the library
consultant selects and lists reference
sources for the topic. These typically
include appropriate indexes for
journal articles and a list of productive
subject headings for both these and the
Library's online catalogue.
At the second appointment, the
student receives a step-by-step
introduction to this tailored set of
reference materials. Librarians and
SLAIS students do not do research
for the students: their role is to show
students the most productive ways
of doing it themselves. None of the
reference tools on the students' lists
will show up in their bibliographies,
but the resulting books and articles will.
Faculty members who refer students
to the Term Paper Research Clinic
report that those who participate do
measurably better research than
those who don't. Students agree,
adding that the skills learned also
provide a basis for library research in
other subject areas.
Term Paper Research Clinic will be
held in Sedgewick/Koerner Library
from Oct. 10 to 18,1996; 12:00 -1:30.
Students may sign up at the
Sedgewick/Koerner Information
Desk after September 30th.
Pilot E-Clinic for Graduate Students
Master's and doctoral students have
research needs far beyond the Term
Paper Research Clinic level, and
these too are getting serious
attention. This fall the Library will be
introducing the Graduate Advisory
Service for the Electronic Library, a
pilot project initially aimed at
students in four departments.
Demonstrations of electronic materials
can be arranged through liaison
librarians, and can be initiated by
either teaching faculty or students.
The new service aims at helping
graduate students:
♦ learn about appropriate
electronic sources for a research
topic and receive assistance
working with them
♦ learn how to construct a current
awareness profile and receive
automatic updates listing newly-
published material
♦ become familiar with document
delivery options
♦ select and use bibliographic software
packages such as Reference Manager
The four test departments and their
Library contacts are: Education:
Education Library Reference staff,
822-8680; Geology: Kevin Lindstrom,
822-4363; Urban Planning: Peggy
McBride, 822-3943; Mechanical
Engineering: Joy Kirchner, 822-4363.
Note: While this is a pilot project funded
by the Teaching & Learning Enhancement
Fund, most libraries providing services
to graduate students can give similar
instruction. Please call your branch or
reference division about options.
Information Skills Program On The Way
Thanks to a $71,000 grant from the
B.C. Innovation Fund, the Library
has begun work on an integrated
program for all UBC students called
Get IT — Information Technology
Skills Now.
The planned curriculum includes
both "foundation" and subject-
specialized computer lab sessions,
opportunities for self-directed
learning, and a Web-based
interactive tutorial accessible by
anyone on or off campus.
The first version of the Web-based
tutorial is up for testing now. It can
be found on the Library's WWW
home page by selecting the section
"About UBC Library", then following
the links referring to library tutorial.
The direct site address is <http://
The rest of the Get IT program is
targeted for the spring term, after the
final move into the Koerner Library.
At that point we will have access to a
fully-equipped Teaching and
Learning Centre with thirty-five

Since the spring 1996 issue of the News, libraries around the system have continued mounting new or improved
databases. Here's a survey of the latest additions.
SilverNet, a dial-in service
networking popular SilverPlatter
databases, has recently added the
Bibliography of Native North
Americans, Microcomputer Abstracts
(1989 -1996), Transport (pre 1988 -
1996) and TreeCD (1939 -1996).
TreeCD is a particularly valuable
resource, providing in-depth
coverage of the international
literature on forestry over an
unusually long time period.
Other SilverNet databases are Econlit
(1969 -1996), GEOBASE (1980 -1996),
Geore/(1785 -1996), Heracles (1975 -
1994), LLBA (1993 -1996), MLA
Bibliography (1963 -1996), PAIS
(1972 -1996), Sociofile (1974 -1996),
SportDiscus (1975 -1996) and Social
Work Abstracts (1977 -1996). In
addition to dial-in access, SilverNet
can be used at workstations in the
Humanities and Social Sciences
Division and the Science and
Engineering Division in the Main
Library, and in the David Lam,
Education, MacMillan and
Woodward Libraries. SilverPlatter
users can also join an online
newsgroup. To subscribe, send an
e-mail message to
<majordomo@unixg.ubc.ca> saying
"Subscribe silvernet-news".
English Short Title Catalogue
The English Short Title Catalogue is now
available for searching via UBCLIB.
Choose either the UBC or REF option
to access it from the Main Menu.
The ESTC contains over 400,000
records for works published in any
language in Great Britain or its
colonies, or in English anywhere else,
from the beginning of printing until
the end of the eighteenth century. Its
coverage ranges from Shakespeare
and the King James Bible to
anonymous ballads and broadsides.
Most of the material listed in the
ESTC can be found at UBC either in
print or within our large sets of
microfilmed material. These include
Early English Books (two sets,
covering the period 1475 -1700), the
Goldsmiths' Kress Library of Economic
Literature, and the Eighteenth Century
collection based on the British
Library's Eighteenth Century Short
Title Catalogue.
The popular Psyclnfo database
on UBCLIB now has a
companion, PsycBooks. Among
the 42,000 entries are records for
books and chapters covering roughly
the last 10 years, along with helpful
contents summaries. Keying DISplay
HOLdings links users to the UBCLIB
catalogue record if the book is in the
Library's collection.
Data Library
The Data Library has opened up
World Wide Web access to several of
its most-used numeric data files,
including CANSIM (Canadian
statistics on a vast range of topics),
the 1991 Canadian census data, IFS:
International Financial Statistics, and
selected files from Statistics Canada's
Survey of Consumer Finances. To view any
of these, check the Data Library Web site
at <http://www.datalib.ubc.ca>
Journal Citation Reports
After a series of delays, the Library
has finally acquired Journal Citation
Reports on CD-ROM. This service
gives the latest data on the
popularity and impact of worldwide
journals, based on the number of
times they are cited by researchers.
The CD-ROM covering the social
sciences will be held in the
Humanities and Social Sciences
Reference Division. Woodward
Library has the matching science
E-mail Option
A late news flash: UBCLIB search
results can now be e-mailed to any
valid online address. Users should
follow the normal instructions for
saving data on whichever catalogue
or article index they're using. At the
key "MAILTO [e-mail address]", e.g.
"mailto jsmith@unixg.ubc.ca".
New Look for Netinfo
As most News readers know, Netinfo is the campus online service offering students free access to
e-mail, newsgroups, the World Wide Web, and related Internet resources. This fall Netinfo has added three new
features: ftp, telnet and (optional) SLIP/PPP. While the former Netinfo service was text-only, the SLIP/PPP
connection supports graphical browsers like Netscape.
Students needing either a basic introduction to Netinfo or an overview of the new features should make a point
of attending the tutorials offered three times a day in the Sedgewick/Koerner computer lab. Sessions are
scheduled for 11:30 -12:30, 2:30 - 3:30 and 4:30 - 5:30, Monday - Thursday until November 28. Full Agenda for Senate Library Committee
As the primary advisory body
concerned with UBC Library affairs,
this year's Senate Library Committee
will address a full slate of issues. The
monthly meeting agenda reads as
Master Space Plan for the Library

Set to Increase
Thanks to extra funding
from the University, the
library system will be
offering expanded service
hours in 1996/97. The
locations and patterns of
service will be based on
results of a campus-wide
survey carried out in August
and September, and data on
which departments and
faculties have had an
enrollment increase.
It's been a busy summer for staff
transitions. Farewell parties were
held for two retiring librarians who
together contributed over 50 years of
service: Lore Brongers, longtime
head of the MacMillan Library, and
Diana Kent, reference librarian
extraordinaire at Woodward.
