 University of British Columbia Library Bulletin
No. 42 March 25, 1970 Vancouver, B. C.
CORRECTION - Gifts & Exchanges Statistics:
The statistics which we reported in the last issue of the Bu1letin (February 17) were
for the six month period, July-Dec 1969 -- NOT for the whole year as stated.
BUDGET, 1970/71:
The Board of Governors is expected to approve the Library budget and salary recommendations
for librarians at a meeting on April 7th.  Mr. Stuart-Stubbs will report to a meeting of
librarians on April 8th, 3:30 p.m., in the School of Librarianship.
NEW Sedgewick Library:
Users' and Clients' Committees have now approved the preliminary drawings, which will
be presented to the Board of Governors on April 7th, in order to obtain permission to
proceed to working drawings.  One element of the design, the skylights, remains unresolved.
This detail will be covered in the working drawings when they are presented to the Board.
At the present time the root-pruning of the trees on the Main Mall is in progress.  This
pruning must be done while the trees are in their dormant state, so as to permit them to
develop a new hair root system by the time the actual construction of the Library begins.
Tne Committee of Deans at its meeting of February 13th concurred in a recommendation
of the Senate Library Committee that the name, "Sedgewick Library", be applied to the
new undergraduate library on grounds that it is both appropriate and already associated
with the undergraduate library services.
At its meeting of March 4th, Mr. Stuart-Stubbs moved an amendment to a motion introduced
by the Senate Committee on Long-Range Objectives, which produced the following resolution:
"That each program should include in its first year a course, or partial one, providing
an introduction to the discipline and the bibliographic controls of its literature." A
preliminary meeting has been held with Mr. Mclnnes and Mr. Chew to explore ways and means
of implementing the recommendation.
Applications are invited for the following positions; address your enquiries to Mr. Bell
in the Librarian's Office.
