Close some branch libraries,
review committee pr
Some branches of the university library may
be closed and circulation of academic journals
restricted if recommendations currently being
considered by President David Strangway are
Proposals from an external review committee also call for increased government funding
of the library above the university's current
operating budget. This funding should be "vigorously pursued" to reflect the true costs of running a library which serves as a provincial
resource, the committee's report said.
Chaired by McMaster University librarian
Graham Hill, the committee was established to
review library services and management, its
role as a provincial resource, strategies for
maintaining collections and the impact of information technology. The report was recently
released for public scrutiny.
It found that library users were near unanimous in their praise of the library, but expressed
concern over its future due to financial restraint.
Strangway said the report is a thoughtful one
that "doesn't pull any punches."
"It says there are things we can and must do
internally. But none of it takes away from the fact
that we have a really first class library that is
serving the community very effectively and which
needs our continued support," he said.
One recommendation calls for a gradual reduction of the number of branch libraries - there
are currently 15 - and a centralization of collections.
"There is a clear dollar cost to provide the
convenience and personalized service of a highly
decentralized library system," the report stated.
But any move to centralize library collections
would have to wait until proposed new library
space is constructed, said University Librarian
Douglas Mclnnes. The Main Library, one of the
oldest buildings on campus, is already overcrowded, he said.

Students protest against a 10 per cent fee increase outside the Faculty Clubslast month while the Board of Governors
ponders the issue inside.
'Agonizing decision'
Board approves tuition rise
UBC's Board of Governors deliberated for more than three hours before
making what President David Strangway
called an "agonizing decision" to approve a 10 per cent tuition fee increase.
The proposal came from the university administration which was concerned
about maintaining the quality of education. Strangway said it was the fundamental issue in the board's discussions.
"The decision was not made lightly.
We must do whatever we can to preserve
the quality of education at UBC," Strangway said.
About 600 students staged a noisy
demonstration and rally outside the Faculty Club, where the board meeting was
held Jan. 26, to protest against the fee hike
which takes effect in the Fall.
Students representing the Alma Mater
Society and the Graduate Student Society
delivered formal presentations to board
members before the vote asking them lo
reconsider the increase.
Peter Brown, Board of Governors
chairman, said in a statement to reporters
afterwards, that the university must balance its books.
"We don't have a choice," Brown
said. "The feeling ofthe board is that if
we are asked to do further cuts, we go
right to the quality of education itself.''
See STUDENTS on Page 2
Fines may aid students
University administrators are considering a student proposal to
funnel parking fines collected on campus into a student bursary fund.
"We think it's a good idea," said K.D. Srivastava, Vice-President
of Student and Academic Services, who estimated the annual revenue
at $150,000. "Assuming it is all available, we would like to put it
toward a university bursary endowment fund and the income from
the fund would be used to help students in need."
The idea was proposed at a meeting between senior administrators
and student representatives who met to discuss student concerns
about the tuition fee increase.
Victoria gives
UBC $750,000
to plan building
The provincial government will provide $750,000 to develop architectural
plans for UBC's new Academic and Administrative Services Building and the
Brock Hall Student Services addition.
"This will enhance the efficiency and effectiveness ofthe university's op
erations,' ' said Advanced Education Minister Stan Hagen. "It's an investment in
increased productivity."
UBC President David Strangway said
he was extremely pleased with the government's announcement.
"The various academic and administrative units are inadequately housed, often
in derelict huts that pose fire hazards and
have been condemned by the fire department. The safety of workers is a major
concern," Strangway said.
The $14-million project will allow
the demolition of the huts which date
back to the Second World War.
The Brock Hall addition is part of
UBC's master plan to put all student
services under one roof. The Registrar's
Office, the Student Housing and Conference Department and the Awards and
Financial Aid office will be part of the
same complex as the Counselling and
Resource Center.
' This will provide a signifigant improvement in the services provided to
students at UBC," said Strangway.
Ministry officials expect planning to
be complete by the Fall, when the final
budget will be submitted to cabinet.
Construction should be complete by the
Fall of 1991.
New research facility
brings PhD program
in Nursing step closer
UBC's School of Nursing will move
one step closer to establishing a PhD
program with the opening of its new
nursing research unit, Feb. 23.
"One of the very important things we
have to do in implementing a doctoral
program is to develop a strong research
program within the school," said Dr.
Marilyn Willman, director ofthe UBC
Nursing School. "The unit will provide

coordinated support so that research activities
can be carried out
more effectively."
The research
unit is located on
the third floor of
the University
Hospital in the
nursing school.
Nursing research plays a large role in
improving the quality of Canadian health
care, said Willman. Cross-cultural health
care, the management of chronic illness
and disabilities, aging, and family health
care, especially of women and children,
are some ofthe issues which school researchers are addressing.
Related to the establishment of the
research unit is the school's new visiting
research scholar program. The first of
these scholars is Dr. Agnes Aamodt,
professor emerita at the University of
Arizona, who will spend two weeks at the
school. The official opening ceremony
of the unit will be followed by Dr. Aamodt's
public lecture on culturally sensitive health
care. UBCREPORTS   Feb. 9,1989
Crane to stay in UBC system
as Strangway rejects proposal
Crane Memorial Library will remain
part of the university library system, despite
a recommendation it be taken over.by the
provincial government, President David
Strangway said.
The recently released report of the
review committee for the library recommended the university hand over financial responsibility for the library to the
province as a cost-saving measure.
It suggested Crane then be consolidated with other services for the blind and
visually impaired as part of a new unified
But the president has rejected the
proposal, calling the library "a critical
service for UBC students."
"I don't think that makes any sense at
all to somehow spin it off from the university," Strangway said. "It's too important for UBC. We have recently made
some strong commitments to the interests
of the disabled."
helps set
science policy
A new science and technology policy
recently adopted by Victoria will help lead
British Columbia into the 21st century, says
UBC President David Strangway.
The policy was drafted by the Premier's
Advisory Council for Science and Technology with the help of Strangway, who is a
The nine policy statements are intended
to guide research, development and application efforts in science and technology from
now to the year 2000.
The policy statements are:
Support the use and development of
technological innovations that build on existing strengths and capabilities and that
have export potential.
Encourage the use of science and technology to improve the quality of life for
British Columbians through protecting and
improving our natural, man-made and cultural environments, and do so in a way that
produces products and services that can be
Recognize the importance of basic research and encourage applied research of an
international calibre in areas that contribute
significantly to B.C.'s economic development and competitiveness.
Foster entrepreneurial enterprises and
encourage partnerships among post-secondary institutions, government, industry and
labor that will promote technology transfer
and encourage commercialization of the
results of basic and applied research.
Support the development of marketing
programs that take advantage of B.C.'s unique
geographical location and cultural makeup.
Strengthen the science and technology
components at all levels ofthe education
system so that scientific and technological
literacy is improved, more people are attracted to careers in science and technology
and our universities continue to produce
graduates and research of the highest calibre.
Encourage government, institutions,
industjy and labor to communicate the benefits
of science and technology to the general
public so that the public supports science
and technology policies and initiatives.
Make education programs available in
science and technology to enable retraining,
upgrading and acquisition of new knowledge to ensure an educated and adaptable
work force in the trades professions.
Provide a level of direct government
financial support for technology-intensive
industries that will enable B.C. to be competitive nationally and internationally.
The university will, however, consider asking Victoria for additional funding in recognition of the community services offered by Crane, Strangway said.
Crane's portion ofthe total library operating budget is about $230,000 annually.
Crane head Paul Thiele called the
proposals's rejection "wonderful news."
tainly a relief," he said.
Crane provides taped versions of textbooks required by blind or visually impaired students as well as reference material for sighted students in fields such as
social work and nursing. It also has a large
collection of braille books and some
personal computers equipped with voice

Continued from Page 1
Closure of small branch libraries would
have little impact on staffing levels,
Mclnnes added.
The report also urges that the library
end within the year a policy of circulating
journals and compensate for this with an
increase in the number of photocopiers.
Mclnnes said he personally did not
want to see users inconvenienced by more
circulation restrictions even though a blanket policy keeping journals on the shelf
would be simpler for the Ubrary.
"I think we should move toward this
policy gradually, looking at the problems
it may create for certain areas and disciplines," he said.
The library, Canada's second largest,
provides services for the general public,
the medical, legal and business professions, supports distance education and
offers interlibrary loans for B.C.'s other
universities and colleges.
But before requesting additional funding from the province, Strangway said,
the university must be sure that every step
has been taken to make the library efficient and cost-effective.
are closed
Among the 25 recommendations being
considered are:
Place a ceiling on the proportion of the
$5-million annual acquisition budget spent
on serial publications. Currently, serials
account for about 60 per cent of the
budget, a figure that has been increasing
in recent years due to rapidly climbing
Institute a zero-net-growth limit on
the number of current journal subscriptions for at least two years.
Establish a new circulation system to
replace the current one.
Push ahead with computerization of
the catalogue system.
The review, submitted to Strangway
in July, has since circulated to deans,
vice-presidents, the Senate library committee and senior library staff. Input is
now being sought from the wider university community. A copy of the executive
summary will appear in the next edition
of UBC Reports.
'' We' re asking library users to gi ve
thoughtful consideration to the recommendations and then offer insights that
we can incorporate as we develop a final
administrative position," Strangway said.
Students disappointed
with decision to raise fees
Continued from Page 1
UBC faces a budget shortfall of several million dollars this fiscal year and is
already implementing cuts of one per
cent, about $2-million. While tuition fees
represent only a small part of the university's budget-about 15 per cent-Strang-
way and Brown said UBC must make
ends meet.
Students who waited outside the closed
meeting to hear the vote outcome said
they were disappointed and angry. Tim
Bird, president of UBC's Alma Mater
Society and one of the students who made
a last-minute appeal to the board, said
UBC will lose good students as a result of
the decision.
"It's bad news for students who are on
maximum student loans already," Bird
said. "A number of students won't be
going to UBC next year because they
simply can't afford it."
Vanessa Geary, one of the organizers
of the student protests, described the
decision as "absolutely outrageous."
"The board is clearly not listening to the
students of this campus," she said.
Barry Jones, NDP MLA for Burnaby
North and Education critic, addressed
students at the rally as did Gordon Wilson,
leader of B.C.'s Liberal Party, and Sandra
Bruneau, program coordinator in UBC's
Faculty of Education.
UBC's Board of Governors vote comes
on the heels of a decision by Simon Fraser
University to scale down tuition increases
to six per cent and to cut enrolment by 10
per cent. Strangway said UBC has no
plans to cut enrolment adding that the
university was "committed to accessibility."
UBC plans to increase graduate student enrolment by 2,000 places and is
working with B.C. colleges to create new
degree-granting institutions in the province, he said.

UBC President David Strangway talks about science to Burnaby students during
the kickoffofthe new Scientists in the Schools program.
'Real scientist' helps

for B.C.'s schools
On TV, scientists wear white lab coats,

Grade 7 student at Stride Avenue elementary school in Bumaby.
Added classmate Dave Raposo, 13:
"I always thought that a scientist was
someone who used big words all the
The students had just met a real scientist, geophysicist and UBC President David
Strangway, for the first time as their school
played host to the official launch of a new
provincial government program called
Scientists in the Schools.
' 'Our goal is to provide every student
in B.C. with the opportunity to meet a
scientist face-to-face at least once during
their time in school,'' said Stan Hagen,
Minister of Advanced Education and Job
Training, and Minister Responsible for
Science and Technology.' 'We hope to
leave the impression that there are excellent careers in science."
Strangway told the students how he
led experiments on the first lunar rock
samples brought back to earth and taught
geology to astronauts. He showed slides
of planets and answered questions about
temperatures on Venus and the atmosphere of Mars.
Joining him on the first day of the
program were Tony Arrott of SFU, Reg
Mitchell of UVic and Sharon Proctor of
the Vancouver Public Aquarium.
In the coming months, dozens of scientists and engineers, from universities,
research institutes and priv ate industry
will be volunteering their time to visit
elementary and high school students
through B.C. to help boost awareness of
science and technology.
"It isn't too soon to be considering
what our province is going to be like in the
21st century, It's only 4,000 days away,"
Hagen told an assembly of students, teachers, parents and dignitaries at the school.
If current trends continue, he said, the
high tech industry will be B.C.'s third
largest employer by 1995, when some of
today's elementary students will be graduating from high school.
Posters and brochures for the program       ,
prominently feature a photograph of UBC
microbiology professor Julia Levy, and
other UBC researchers and projects are
also mentioned.
The message was not lost on Lisa
Bourdages, 11, who said: "If more scientists come to the schools then more people
will get the idea to become scientists."
Increased power cause
for CITR celebration
Ground Hog Day, Feb. 2, was more
than a celebration of the end of winter, it
was also the day UBC's student radio
station CITR officially broadcast at high
power on 1800 watts.
Station staff released balloons in front
of a 25-foot inflatable ground hog to mark
the occasion.
The station has been trying for several
years to increase its broadcasting power
from 49 watts, a signal so weak that
tuning in was more by accident than
design. Commercial radio stations broadcast at 50,000 watts.
With approval from the federal regulator last September, the station invested
$100,000 in new equipment and will now
reach listeners in communities as far away
as Abbotsford, Tsawwassen, Point Roberts,
Lions Bay and Bowen Island, as well as in
the Lower Mainland on 101.9 FM.
The signal is also carried on some FM
cable systems and the station has plans to
extend cable service throughout B.C.
A non-profit, non-commercial student
run station which started up in 1937,
CITR's diverse and distinct music and
programming is unlike anything available on private radio. Flare magazine
once described it as ' 'the hottest radio
station in Canada."
With the signal boost, station staff are
implementing 24-hour programming.
