FROM THE EDITOR‘S DESK:
Beginning with the next issue of the GB, we will starr a new
series that will continue for some time. This addition to the
regular parts of the GB will feature different units within the
Library system. Next issue I will enclose a better description.
I just wanted to remind unit heads that your descriptions are due
July ll (TODAY!) If you don‘t get them in soon, I'll get
mean .......
I would also like to put in a brief ALA report. The
convention ran from June 27 - July 3, with most things going on
between June 28 - July l. The "hot" item was the new CD—ROM
technology. For those of you unfamiliar with it, CD-ROM is
Compact—Disc Read-Only Memory. A compact disc is a laser disc,
"read-only" means it can only be read (like microfiche) and you
can't write on it (like a floppy disc). New acronyms and jargon
were everywhere, and products like Infotrac were demonstrated.
Toni Powell got in act with the National Agriculture Library's
compact disc program (Pork Industry Handbook) and R. R. Bowker
demonstrated a prototype Books-in-Print on compact disc.
Tech services types were debating standards and public
services types were wrestling with fee—based reference services,
among the hundreds of meetings and presentations offered during
the conference.
The champagne reception at New York Public Library was also
very nice. Guess what ~ their air conditioning system isn't
perfect, either!

NETWORKING IN KENTUCKY——NIK NEWS
Networking in Kentucky, the newsletter of the Kentucky
Library Network, recently published its Spring l986 issue. It
featured a report of the first KLN Board of Directors Meeting, of
which Gail Kennedy and Omer Hamlin are members. Other news
included a progress report on the development of the union
- database. On April l6, l986, KLN announced the proposal of the
database to vendors for methods and prices of creating such a
file. The four most important requirements are: l) Creation and
Maintenance of MARC records from Kentucky libraries; 2)
production of a COM (computer output microform) catalog, with

 -.2..
updates; 3) provisions for producing tapes of a subset of the
database (e.g. the holdings of a particular library); 4)
management reports, such as error and statistical report;. For
more information, or a copy of the newsletter, please call the
Director‘s Office or Kentucky Library Network, Box 537,
Frankfort, KY 40602-0537.
THANK YOU
The family of Frank Stanger, Special Collections, are most
appreciative of the many kind expressions of sympathy by members
of the Library administration and staff, upon the occasion of the
death in April of Frank's father.

COMMITTEE REPORTS
It is in this section that we hope to publish the annual
reports of the various faculty committees, as well as a few
others. We'll publish a few at a time. The first one is the
Gallery Series Committee Report.
1985/1986 Gallery Series Committee Report
The Gallery Series Committee is charged with developing and
carrying out the Library‘s Friday noon lecture and recital
programs known as the Gallery Series.
The Committee seeks out and invites presenters to
participate in the series, arranges for any special needs (A/V
equipment, etc.) for the presentations, and publicizes each
Gallery Series program. These responsibilities are divided among
the committee members and coordinated by the Committee chairman.
This year's committee was comprised of Karl Boewe, Evelyn
Evans, Joyce Gilmore, Meg Shaw, and chaired by Paula Pope.
Twenty-five Gallery Series programs were presented from
October 4 through May 2. The program topics ranged from musical
presentations and music theory to theater, history, political
science, art, civil rights, photography and journalism. .
Attendance at the programs varied from capacity crowds for the
Fall Semester music programs to a sparse half dozen for the
Spring Semester Haydn series. The series was promoted through a
mailing to the Lexington Campus Faculty, Press Releases by U. K.
Information Services, the publishing of weekly flyers throughout
the campus, announcements in the Lexington Herald Arts Calendar,
