The "Collection Development" section of the Planning committee
Report was discussed at the Library Faculty meeting on March 5,
A 1976. The concern of the Planning Committee was to analyze those
problems relating to developing the library's book collection.
The report raised several areas for consideration: book selec-
tion has been a major responsibility of the teaching faculty:
support from the liaisons is not evenly given; some liaisons are
lacking in subject expertise and/or time to devote to collection
development; weeding the collection; filling gaps in the
collection; evaluating serial holdings; a collection development
policy needs to be written for the entire library.
The Committee recommended that subject bibliographers/reference
librarians may lend a solution to the problems. A major point
raised in the discussion was that the Resource Utilization Unit
has been an excellent facility for public relations. While this I
is true, it was the Committee's primary concern to deal with the
state and the quality of the library's collection. Since most
of the library liaisons are unable to move beyond current
purchasing into in—depth examination of the collection, the
Committee recommended that the Resource Utilization Unit be re-
garded as an intermediary step to full-time staffing in the area
of collection development.

Kentucky's Pioneer Days
Did you know that Daniel Boone could write? Not a fine, italic
hand to be sure, but he had a sufficiently useful script to permit
,him to handle his own business affairs as may be seen from the
items on display in the Department of Special Collections and
Archives Mon.-Fri. 8-5 and Sat. 8-l2 p.m. Our exhibit empha-
sizes Kentucky's pioneer days and was assembled from books and
manuscripts selected from our holdings.
Our extensive manuscript collections number almost 3,000,000
. pieces and stress regional history including records of early,

 -2-
local businesses and farms as well as family papers. Many
Kentucky authors are represented as are numerous contemporary
political figures.
Several 1792 manuscripts are being shown including three letters
written from Lexington, and documents concerning Isaac She1by‘s
inauguration as Kentucky‘s first governor in addition to material
related to Kentucky's establishment as the 15th state of the
Union.
The next time you're caught in the midst of the 5 o'c1ock -
traffic jam wondering how a car sometimes complicates your life
or why the 5:13 bus isn't in sight at 5:32 be grateful that one
of the first transportation systems in Lexington is no longer
in use. In a 1792 letter, Joseph Wood, a newly arrived settler
from New Jersey, complains that "When the Ground is Wet [it] is
about half leg deep . . . When Lexington was first made a
station the Women went from house to house Shuveing a Small
V Cannew on the mud . . ." Perhaps modern day living isn't so bad
_ after all.

  The University Senate held its regular monthly meeting on March 8,
( in the Law Building. After brief discussion on informational items,
  the members acted on the two items of the agenda. The first item
( was clarification of Senate Rules, Section VI, on Punishment for
( Academic Offenses & Disposition of cases of Academic Offenses. The
Q vote dealt primarily with guidelines for the existing rule to avoid
E improper handling of such cases by students and the faculty. The
{ only discussion dealt with editorial changes in the text. The
; measure was passed.
The second agenda item was a proposed change in Senate Rules, Section
V, 4.1, regarding a waiver of the requirement which disallows corre-
I spondence courses in the last 30 hours taken at U.K. The Senate
j voted to allow correspondence courses in extenuating circumstances
` with the approval of the College Dean.
  Before adjourning, a motion was presented from the floor to pass a
  resolution condemning the proposed use of the "Blue-White Fund" for
1 allocating choice seating at University sports events. The motion
i was tabled until the April meeting in order to investigate the
  matter further.

The five-year Library Services and Construction Act extension bill
(HR 11233) recently passed in the House by a large majority. The
Congressional Record for 17 February, p. Hl053-1060, tells the story;
Breckinridge and Perkins of Kentucky supported the bill. Also in
Congress, and by a large majority, the House of Representatives
approved a bill authorizing an additional $33 million to complete
construction of the Library of Congress James Madison Memorial
Building for library purposes (Congress had been considering taking
over the building for their own offices.). The bill has now passed
to the Senate.
