  New Personnel
I
l Michael Markiw has joined the Cataloging Department in the position
I of monographs cataloger. Mike was most recently a Slavic cataloger
in the Ohio State University Libraries. He studied Russian and German
at the University of Alberta and French at the Université de bbntreal;
1 his MLS is from the University of Western Ontario. His paper on
I "Distribution of Subject Headings ni an On—line Academic Library Catalog"
i was published in the Proceedings of the ASIS Annual Meeting for l982.

| SUNY at Buffalo's Automated Circulation System
' SUNY at Buffalo has recently created an in—house database of 500,000
records using their OCLC archival tapes. As Steve Roberts points out
in their library newsletter, "[tjhe successful loading of this database
is a significant milestone in the process of bringing the circulation
system up next semester."
Loading took nearly a month without maj or problems but with some minor
ones. Old archival tapes, because of disuse and age, were brittle and
sticky and therefore hard to copy. Periodic rewinding keeps tapes supple.
Records, stored on a GEAC system, are accessible by call number, a.uthor,
title, ISBN/ ISSN, LC card number, and OCLC number.
The library must now form a link between barcode labels and the stored
records. Records will be supplemented with barcode label numbers, local
call numbers, shelf locations, local copy numbers, material types, and
status. Barcodes can be entered through light wands, but other information
must be keyed in.

 ‘ They hope to have entered a large portion of the collection before
A bringing the system up, but some of the linking will have to be done
§ _ at the circulation desk. Returned materials and high use items will
A receive priority.
l ARL/SE Serials Project
? Ten ARL institutions in the Southeast have been awarded a second grant
·   for a cooperative serials project through the Department of Education's
I Title II-·C program. The group, known unofficially as the "Gang of 'I‘en," ‘
A consists of Emory University, Florida State University, Louisiana State
l University, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, University of Alabama, University
of Florida, University of Georgia, University of Kentucky, University of
( Miami, and University of Tennessee.
Q During the current grant proj ect, the participants have developed plans
  for a cooperative serials collection development program and (in cooperation
2 with the Library of Congress) created a new "MARC Format for Holdings and
{ Iocations." The second grant (to begin in October l983) will fund the
g writing of computer programs and testing of the new MARC format to ensure
1 its utility for local computerized systems. _
? SOLINEI is assisting the "Gang of Ten" by performmg scme systems analysis
} and design on a subcontractual basis. Programmers will analyze the
2 specifications the participants have developed for detailed serials holdings
  statements and will design a "paper system" based on those specifications. ,
$ These activities will lead up to the second phase of the project, which will
  include the actual computer programming and a live test of the format.
  University Microfilms International Addendum
j { In addition to the new document delivery system (announced in GB #i+l6) , UMI
§ continues to offer OCLC ordering for dissertations, on-demand books, serials
I in microfilm, and UMI Reserach Press items. For more information, contact
‘ Laura Kleiman at UMI (313-761-4700).
On-line Searching News
DIALDG will load an improved version of the Sociolo-ical Abstracts database
late this year, offering "newly standardized fields for more efficient
searches," and spelling out all descriptors throughout the entire backfile.
An updated user's manual for the on—line and print versions has been
produced. (American Libraries, October l983, p. 614)
1 ACRL Forms New Discussion Groups
l ACRL's Board of Directors approved creation of the Heads of Public/Readers
l Services Discussion Group at the Annual Conference. The group will examine
* frequent problems in public services delivery and explore issues from a
management perspective. Academic librarians with coordination or management
