Volume 11, No. 2 SPECIAL ISSUE: FACULTY LIBRARY GUIDE, 1978/79 Vancouver, B.C.
Although there is no shortage of library guides at UBC, they all have one thing in common: they were written
primarily for students. We hope this guide will meet the demand for a complete and up-to-date faculty handbook that
will supplement the more basic information given in our other publications.
A wide variety of services is available from reference divisions and major branch libraries. Local conditions may influence the way in which more specialized reference services can be provided, especially in the smaller branches. Among
those which most divisions offer are the following:
Answers to factual queries. A phone call to the appropriate division may quickly provide you with an answer.
Brief selective bibliographies compiled at your request.
Assistance in the preparation of research papers. This may take the form of assisting with literature searches, verifying references or facts, and assistance with bibliographical questions.
Monthly computer printouts of new acquisitions in your subject area. This is an in house service of the UBC Library
called SDI (Selective Dissemination of Information) offered without charge to UBC faculty members. Consult with
a reference librarian in your field; she/he will prepare an interest profile for you based on the Library of Congress
classification scheme. You will then receive a monthly printout of newly catalogued books in your field.
On-line searches of computer bibliographic data bases. The Library has contracts with a number of public and
commercial agencies allowing us to access their computerized bibliographic files. Journal and report literature in
most fields is well covered by these data bases; moreover, on-line searching often provides a more thorough
coverage of the literature than is possible through printed indexes. Searches are offered to faculty members on a
partial cost recovery basis; since each search is unique, costs vary. For detailed information, contact the appropriate reference librarian, who can inform you if data bases are available in your field and provide a cost
Informal interest profiles may also be obtained for individual faculty members so that reference staff can pass on
information in subject areas, or from sources not covered by the computerized services.
To help you find the reference staff member best able to help, consult the enclosed list of "Library People."
In keeping with Senate policy, the University Library maintains a centralized acquisitions program and takes
general responsibility for the development of collections and the expenditure of book funds. In this program the Library
is assisted by the Senate Library Committee, by deans and department heads, and all persons interested in Library affairs.
Essentially the book fund is composed of two parts: that controlled by the Library, and that controlled by the
academic departments.
The Library is responsible for the purchase of current books, reference books, research materials, government
publications, and backfiles of periodicals. It also takes responsibility for the purchase of periodical subscriptions. The academic departments concentrate on the purchase of older materials which they feel are necessary to support
the courses they are offering. Each department appoints from its members a faculty library representative who is expected to see that his or her department's allocation and any other funds at its disposal are spent wisely each year.
All requests for books to be ordered should be submitted on Book Request Forms. These forms are available from
the Acquisitions Division of the Main Library (x3258). The completed forms should be sent, preferably through the
Department's Library Representative, to Catalogue Records —Searching, Main Library.
When ordering please observe the following:
— Type or print clearly to avoid unnecessary delays.
— If an order is compiled from publishers' blurbs and catalogues, include these lists with the completed request forms; this type of material often provides additional information useful for ordering from suppliers.
— An editor's name, if required, should follow the title (Bacon's Essays/edited by Jacob Jones).
— Orders received after January 15, 1979 will very likely be charged against the 1979/80 Book Budget since it
normally takes two months before an order is cleared for payment.
Only out-of-print catalogues may be marked and submitted, through the Library representative, without order
If you wish to order a periodical for inclusion in the library's collection, please see the head of the reference division
or branch library responsible for that subject area.
Back runs of periodicals may be requested through Mr. G. Elliston, the Serials Bibliographer, in the Collections
Division (x2304).
Publications of the B.C. government, the Ontario government (selective), the Canadian federal government, and
some international organizations are acquired on a deposit basis by the Library. If you wish to order publications from
other areas for inclusion in the collection, please submit an order to the Government Publications Division, Main
The Library is a depository for most B.C. and Canadian government map series, and many U.S. and Australian
government series. Suggestions for other maps and atlas acquisitions should be made to the Map Division, Main Library.
A. M.A. Theses
It is not library policy to buy M.A. theses. They may usually be borrowed on interlibrary loan for specific research
B. Ph.D. Dissertations
It is not library policy generally to buy Ph.D. dissertations for the Library's collections. In those relatively few cases
where a particular dissertation is an outstanding monograph on the subject, it may be bought, usually on microfilm
through the Acquisitions Division and subsequently added to the Library collection. On the authorization of the departmental library representatives and the Assistant Librarian for Collections, the departmental library allocation is charged
for such purposes.
Dissertations may also be acquired through interlibrary loan, but the costs of microfilm or photocopy in this case will
not be met from Library book funds, nor will the dissertation be added to the Library. It will instead be considered the
property of the individual placing the request.
Abstracts of doctoral dissertations, with prices and order information, can be found in Dissertation Abstracts,
available in the Main Library.
The bibliographers in the Collections Division are mainly concerned with the field of current publishing and they try
to ensure that essential materials are purchased as they become available. They maintain close contact with the dealers
who supply books on "blanket" or "approval" contracts. Under these arrangements, booksellers in various countries send
selected materials to the Library.
The bibliographers' main responsibility is to see that the Library's acquisition of current material is comprehensive
and balanced. They are also concerned with correcting weaknesses in the existing collection, and they welcome suggestions which assist them in this task. The following guide lists the personnel of the Collections Division and describes areas they supervise:
1) Eleanor Mercer, Assistant Librarian for Collections (x2740)
Head of the Division; answers queries regarding general policy, allocation of funds, etc.
2) Graham Elliston, Serials Bibliographer (x2304)
With the cooperation of library personnel and departmental library representatives, attends to all matters involved in the acquisition of periodical backfiles. Identifies gaps in the collection, scans catalogues and lists, compiles
want-lists, and approves purchase of material through the Research Periodicals Fund.
3) Jennifer Forbes, Bibliographer (x3748)
Supervises the approval purchase of all current humanities and social sciences publications issued in Canada (both
English and French language), and English-language materials from the United States, Great Britain, and various
Commonwealth countries.
4) Dorothy Shields, Bibliographer (x3748)
Supervises the blanket order program and orders for current books from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands (publications in languages other than Dutch), Spain, and Switzerland. Notable exclusions are
the proceedings of congresses and symposia.
5) Jack Mcintosh, Slavic Bibliographer (x2411)
Supervises the approval purchase of all current Slavic language materials. Exercises special responsibility for
retrospective selection of Slavic language materials in the fields of language and literature.
6) John Cole, Science Bibliographer (x4363)
Supervises the acquisition of science and technology materials in all areas except bio-medical. This includes the
fields of agriculture, astronomy, chemistry, engineering, forestry, geology, mathematics, and physics.
7) Anthony Jeffreys. Life Sciences Bibliographer (x2884)
Supervises the acquisition of all materials which will be located in the Woodward Biomedical Library. This covers
all health sciences, biology, biochemistry, and home economics.
8) Graham Elliston, Gifts & Exchanges (x2607 or 2304)
This section is responsible for the acceptance and disposal of gift materials, usually books and magazines. If you
have anything which you feel might be of use to the Library, please contact Mr. Elliston.
As far as possible, the Library makes available to students materials which are included on reading lists or suggested
as course reading. This process is simplified if faculty members comply with the following suggestions.
A. Be sure the Library has the items on your reading list. If it does not, order the material well in advance of assigning the readings to your class.
B. Provide enough bibliographic information on class reading lists to make identification of the items possible
without undue frustration on the part of the students and/or library staff. The following guide should help with
the basic information needed on these lists:
i)     AUTHOR'S NAME should always be given in full, since the public catalogue does not have a title card for
every work,
ii)     A KEY should be provided to any acronyms, initialisms and abbreviations used in the list,
iii)     Supply COMPLETE REFERENCES FOR PERIODICAL ARTICLES. These should give the full title,
volume number and date of the periodical, with the author, title and paging of the article to be read,
iv)     REFERENCES FOR COLLECTED WORKS should include the title of the book and the full name of its
editor or compiler, along with the author, title and paging of the section to be read,
government department. Avoid confusion — include this information in your citation,
vi)     FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF with the library reserving and course processing procedure described below.
Special provisions are made by the Library for those non -textbook readings which are assigned to all students in a
course. When requested by a faculty member, or when demand for an item becomes heavy, course books are placed "on
reserve", i.e., on short term (one day or two-hour) loan. Duplicate copies are often provided to make it easier for all
students to complete their required reading assignments. Short loan periods should be restricted to material which is required reading for a whole class.
Reserve books are housed in the Main Library, Sedgewick,and other branch libraries depending on the course for
which they are reserved. Branches and divisions concerned with particular subject fields house materials for courses in
those areas. Thus, reserve books for music will be found in the Music Library, for fine arts in the Fine Arts Division, etc.
The staff in these subject-specialized branches and divisions can give you full information if you wish to place material on
reserve with them. The two major areas where reserve books are held are:
A. Sedgewick Library
— Undergraduate arts (humanities and social sciences) courses numbered 100-499.
— Mathematics, science and applied science courses numbered 100-299.
B. Main Library Reserve Book Collection
— Commerce
— Education (except material on the methodology of education,
held in the Curriculum Laboratory)
— Graduate arts courses
— Librarianship
— Physical education
— Science and applied science courses numbered 300 and above, except mathematics (Mathematics Library)
and biomedical sciences (Woodward Library)
Course requests should be submitted four months in advance of when they will be required. Special forms for submitting these requests are available from the Course Processing Division. All searching and ordering of materials (when
necessary) is done by the Division. Access to the material is then provided through a microfiche Course File where each
item is listed.
The Course Processing staff sends to each Faculty member in March and September a print-out listing materials
currently used in his or her course. From this list, items can be deleted if no longer relevant. New material may be added
to the list by using the special forms provided.
Faculty members who have course material on reserve in this collection are sent their book lists and forms in April
for the next winter session. Procedures followed in getting the books on the shelf are much the same as for Sedgewick
Please try to return your completed forms to Sedgewick or the Reserve Book Collection four months in advance of
the session for which the items are required. Experience has shown that it may take that long for orders to be filled by
vendors when the material is not available at UBC.
For extra-sessional credit courses given on campus, please follow the same procedures as for regular daytime classes.
The students in these courses receive regular library cards which entitle them to use campus libraries on the same basis as
other students.
For off-campus extra-sessional courses and correspondence courses, books are provided through the Extension
Library (operated by the Main Library's Reserve Book Collection). Instructors of these courses should contact Extension
Library as early as possible to find out what services are available and to ensure that the required material will be
available when classes begin.
Library cards are issued to faculty members upon application. If you do not have a card, please apply at the Main
Loan Desk, just off the Main Library entrance hall.
Please note also that once a library card has been issued, it must be validated annually in August or September. This
is done by presenting the card at the Main Loan Desk (validation takes only a few minutes) or by mailing it to the Circulation Division.
A faculty member's spouse is entitled to a free Extramural library card upon application at the Main Loan Desk.
Please don't borrow material signed out to someone else, or lend items you have borrowed without notifying the
library concerned. Unless the loan records are changed, the original borrower is responsible for any overdue or lost items. LIBRARY LOAN PROCEDURES
Faculty and students may borrow material for the following periods:
Home Use Books 2 weeks - Main Library, Asian Studies, Crane, Ecology, Fine Arts,  Law, MacMillan.
Mathematics, Music, Social Work and Woodward. For faculty, any items not requested by
another borrower by the 8th day are automatically extended to the end of term.
1 week - Curriculum Laboratory, Government Publications and Sedgewick Library.
Please note that 1 week loans are not automatically extended. At the end of the 1 week
period, books must be either returned or renewed.
Reserve Books 2 hours, 1 day, or 3 days as indicated in each book.
Reference and
Library Use Books For use in the building only.
Serials and Restricted 1 week for bound volumes and 3 days for unbound issues in Main, Asian Studies, Crane,
Ecology, MacMillan, Mathematics, Social Work, and Woodward Libraries.
2 days - Law Library
1 day - Sedgewick Library
Overnight - Curriculum Laboratory
Library Use Only - Fine Arts and Music Libraries.
Please note that these loans are not automatically extended. The items must be either
returned or renewed.
Extended Loans Borrowers may request longer loan periods on specific items either when signing material
out or at any time thereafter. An extended loan is not an indefinite loan; a due date is set
but it is later than it would be for a normal loan. For example, a borrower may ask to have a
book for 30 days. Extended loans are not normally granted on material that is in heavy demand.
Extended loans are subject to immediate recall if requested by another borrower.
At the end of term (April, August and December) all overdue material will be recalled. Material not returned or
renewed in response to the April and August recalls will be presumed lost and the borrower will be billed the cost of
replacement plus a processing fee of $10 per item.
Late return fees are charged for overdue material if another borrower has been kept waiting as evidenced by a hold
request. For all loans except extended loans, fines accumulate from the due date or from the date of request, whichever is
In the case of extended loans and two week loan to faculty, there is a seven day grace period counted from the date
of request. Material not returned by the seventh day is considered overdue and fines begin to accrue.
The schedule of fines is as follows:
— Reserve materials: $1.00 per hour up to $5.00 per day to a maximum of $25.00 per item.
— Other materials: $1.00 per day to a maximum of $25.00 per item.
— Lost material: if reported prior to call-in by Library, the replacement cost plus a $3.00 processing fee. If
called in, either on behalf of another borrower or for term-end, the replacement cost plus a $10.00 processing fee.
Borrowing privileges are suspended when a maximum $25.00 fee has accrued and the material in question is not
returned. Borrowing privileges will be restored when proof of payment and/or the missing material is presented to the
Library. Borrowing privileges can also be suspended for failure to pay replacement bills.
These are available for the convenience of faculty members who may wish to have a secretary or other person pick up
library material for them. Materials are for the faculty member's use alone, and he or she is responsible for them.
Your authorization card may be used for a maximum of one academic year (i.e., September 1 to August 31). If you
wish to continue using the card after the end of August, it should be validated by the staff in the Circulation Division.
Please contact them at x3115 for more information. INTERLIBRARY LOAN SERVICE
Materials not available on this campus may often be borrowed from other libraries through interlibrary loan. While
it is recommended that candidates for advanced degrees undertake research in areas where UBC's library collections are
strong, the terms of the Interlibrary Loan Code allow us to supplement our own resources by borrowing from other
libraries for faculty and students.
Exceptions generally include: books currently in print, reference books, materials in constant use in the lending
library, exceptionally rare or fragile items, and works which are difficult or expensive to ship. Periodicals and dissertations are usually not available for loan, but may be purchased in photocopies or on microfilm or microfiche.
The following policies are, for the most part, those set out in the International Interlibrary Loan Code. This code
was designed to protect large lending libraries from overuse and unreasonable demands by smaller libraries.
A. Who May Use the Interlibrary Loan Service?
In accordance with the national policy, materials may be borrowed for the use of faculty, graduate
students, and authorized research personnel. Undergraduates may use the service for material available in
Canada but should be aware that interlibrary loan takes time. For more information, please visit the Interlibrary Loan Office near the Main Library subject catalogue, or phone the staff at x2274.
B. Applications
Interlibrary loan request forms are available at the Interlibrary Loan Office and at all reference desks in
the Main and branch libraries. Your requests should be typed or legibly printed, and should include full
bibliographical data as well as a published source of reference. Members of the reference departments will
assist you in every way possible with identification of materials needed for research.
C. Terms of Loan
The loan period and conditions of use are determined by the library from which the material was borrowed. Please pick up and return items personally at the main Interlibrary Loan Office or the appropriate
branch library.
New faculty members in need of library orientation are invited to contact the reference division or branch library
responsible for their subject areas. The staff in the Information and Orientation Division (x2076) can provide general
orientation to the Main Library building and instruction in the intricacies of the Main catalogues.
Students at all levels are offered a variety of opportunities to learn about the UBC libraries. Faculty members can
assist their students by making them aware of these programs and by taking advantage of the subject-related instruction
offered by most campus libraries.
1) ORIENTATION TOURS, including basic information on the whole Library system, are offered in the Main Library
and in Sedgewick Library at the beginning of each session.
2) INSTRUCTION FOR FIRST YEAR STUDENTS is given in cooperation with English 100 instructors, who are invited to bring students to the Library for one class period during the winter session. The classes consist of an introduction to the resources and services of the Library and instruction in basic research techniques.
3) TERM PAPER CLINICS are conducted at Sedgewick Library in both fall and spring terms. During the clinics, the
Sedgewick librarians and students from the School of Librarianship are available to work with individual students on
research procedures related to specific assignments. For more information, contact any of the Sedgewick reference
librarians at x4908.
4) COURSE RELATED INSTRUCTION covers more specialized materials and bibliographic procedures. Librarians
are available to advise and lecture to classes. For more information, contact the appropriate Main Library reference
division or branch library.
5) SELF HELP AIDS AND PUBLICATIONS allow students to learn about the campus libraries at their own speed. In
each library, instructional signs are displayed, particularly in the catalogue area, and a variety of publications explaining resources, services and physical layout can be picked up.
If you have any questions about library instruction, or if you wish to arrange a class tour not described above, please
call the Information and Orientation Division at x2076. DEPARTMENTAL READING ROOMS
These were created to meet the need for small library collections and suitable reading space close to faculty offices.
Reading rooms are maintained primarily for the benefit and convenience of particular departments, but access may be
arranged for others if the need is sufficiently urgent. Use of reading room material by non-departmental personnel is
usually governed by the same policies that apply to users within the department. Holdings of all library-operated reading
rooms are represented in the Main Library catalogue.
A department head who wishes to form a reading room should take a proposal to the dean of his or her faculty. Information and advice on the organization and operation of reading rooms are available from Mr. N. Omelusik, Head,
Reading Rooms Division (x2819).
The UBC Data Library, located in Room 206 of the Computer Sciences Building, holds the central University collection of machine-readable data. The facility is jointly operated by the Library and the Computing Centre. Holdings
and service are freely available to all UBC faculty, staff, and students, and with some exceptions, to the public at large.
Data Library holdings currently include about 700 data files, a number of codebooks of data files not held, and a
large collection of listings of data files available from other sources. Data Library subscribes, on behalf of the University,
to the services of the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research, the Roper Public Opinion Research
Center, and the Canadian Consortium for Political and Social Research. Subscriptions are also maintained to COM-
PUSTAT and Center for Research in Security Prices tapes, the Canadian Institute of Public Opinion polls, and all Canadian Census tapes; a large collection of the Canadian Socio-Economic Information Management Systems (CANSIM)
times series is updated periodically. Collections also include a number of miscellaneous surveys, satellite photos, and a
number of textual data sets. A catalogue of holdings is available from the Data Library. New Acquisitions are regularly
reported in the U.B.C. Computing Centre Newsletter.
The Data Library will acquire new data sets for research and/or teaching purposes, on request. Persons wishing to
order data sets for classroom teaching use are cautioned to order as early as possible, as acquisition takes some time. Data
Library staff will, on request, lecture to classes on the resources of the Data Library and related software. Data Library
staff are available during regular hours to give advice and extensive assistance in the use of the collection. Data Library
will not do runs on request; users must supply their own computer ID.
The Data Library functions as an archive for data sets produced locally, as a result of research by University faculty
and students; anyone wishing to deposit data is asked to contact the Data Library. The Data Library also attempts to act
as a clearinghouse of information on data sets held within individual departments around campus.
For information on the use of the Data Library collections and services, contact David Amos, Data Library Programmer (x5587) or Laine Ruus, Head, Data Library (x5587 or 2725).
Currently there are over 20 coin-operated machines in the Main and branch libraries. The Main Library's
photocopiers are located inside the stack entries on levels 3,5, and 6, and in the Fine Arts and Asian Studies Divisions.
The following branches also have machines: Sedgewick, Woodward, Law, MacMillan, Social Work, Biomedical Branch,
Music, and the Curriculum Laboratory. The cost of photocopies made on most of these machines is five cents per exposure .
In addition to the coin-operated machines, staff are on duty in the Library Copy Service at the rear of the Main
Library's entrance hall to do copying for you. They provide this service between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Saturday,
at the cost of 10 cents per exposure.
The Government Publications and Microforms Division has microprinters which will produce paper copies from
microforms at a cost of 20 cents per print. This division also has a microfiche duplicator. Duplicate fiche can be made for
15 cents an exposure.
A number of departments have opened accounts with the library copy service. Your departmental secretary can tell
you whether your department has an account to which you may charge photocopying and also whether any limit has been
set on spending. Requisitions are necessary to open an account; again, please see your departmental secretary.
For information on opening personal accounts, or for any further details about charging photocopying services,
please call the Library Copy Service at x2854. UBC PUBLICATIONS, AND PUBLICATIONS OF UBC FACULTY AND STAFF
The Main Library's Special Collections Division receives numerous requests for these publications from readers at
UBC and elsewhere in Canada. The Division, with the endorsement of the Senate Library Committee, requests that
faculty and staff deposit copies of their monographs, offprints, and articles, and that faculties, departments, administrative offices, and all organizations engaged in publishing at the University send copies of their publications to the
Division. Enquiries should be directed to Anne Yandle (x4879) or Laurenda Daniells (x5877).
Faculty are reminded that copies of all UBC graduate theses are submitted to the Library. A circular entitled Instructions for the Preparation of Graduate Theses is available in Special Collections Division (x2521). Please advise
your students to consult the circular and to contact Special Collections as needed.
Contrary to popular belief, no back files of examination papers are available in campus libraries. However, the
Student Services Office keeps copies of all papers which faculty members have released for student use; this collection
runs to about 30 volumes. If you wish to make copies of former exams available to students, Student Services would be
happy to add them to this set.
Student Services are located in the Ponderosa Annex F, behind the Ponderosa Cafeteria on the West Mall.
All campus libraries are anxious to know about any problems their users may have. If you or your students have had
difficulties with any part of the UBC library system, the person to call is:

The Library is gradually computerizing its catalogue
records. We're running out of space to put card
catalogue drawers and can't keep up with the filing
of cards. So like the bank, the telephone company,
and the hamburger chain, we're turning to the computer.
The computer will print out a list of our books every month. To save paper and space,
the list is printed on sheets of film called microfiche. You must use a reader to magnify
the small print; 6000 books may be listed on each fiche! Move the pointer from top to
bottom to keep the list in alphabetical order. Better yet, use the index (bottom right)

In either case copy down the CALL NUMBER and the LOCATIONS (bottom left); now you are ready
to find the book on the shelf.
Filing order is a bit different from that in the card catalogue. If you have trouble,
ask the staff for help. Quirk: numbers come first, before "A"; they are no longer filed
as if they were spelled out.
The microcatalogue lists books (records, films, etc.) in all the branches and reading rooms
as well as in the main library.
For now, books received 1978/79 are on the microcatalogue. None of these books will be
found in the card catalogue (except under call number in the location file or shelflist).
So be sure to check the microcatalogue for recent additions to the collection.
