(Editor’s note: The four part Planning Committee Report is being
discussed by the Library Faculty at its monthly meetings.)
In the Library Faculty meeting of February 6, the "Staff Development"
section of the Planning Com ittee Report was opened for discussion.
Several issues were raised, including:
1) The status, development opportunities, and salaries of "career"
I non-professionals:
· 2) The importance of staff development programs which respond to the
immediate and felt needs of the staff; ·
3) The high turnover rate among non-professional staff and student
employees, possibly indicating poor orientation and training, or
inadequate interviewing techniques on the part of supervisors;
4) The desire among professional staff to take sabbatical leaves and
the fears that such a leave might cost them their present position
and they would be relocated against their will. Mr. Willis felt
that these fears were probably unfounded;
5) The desirability of coordinating King Library staff development
activities with the College of Library Science Office of
Continuing Education.
Near the end of the discussion, Mr. Willis, asked for the feeling of
the group on the establishment of a representative council for the
non-professional staff. The vote was unanimous in support of such an
idea, and Mr. Willis is planning to propose it to the staff in the
near future. ._V

THE L1§BAB[E§
LC Working Committee Report:
The Report of the LC Working Com ittee was presented at February's
  faculty meeting by the committee's chairwoman, Emilie Smith. The
report, which recommends that the UK Libraries remain with the
» Dewey classification, is circulating and will be discussed at the p
March faculty meeting.
News From Solinet:
At the SOLINET Board of Directors meeting held Jan. 13-14, plans 1
. were discussed for creation of a network center in Atlanta. Mr.
’ Stevens, executive director, was authorized to proceed with the
steps leading to the acquisition, by lease or purchase, of the
equipment necessary for the concentration of leased line data ,
_ communication facilities in Atlanta. He was also empowered to
negotiate with OCLC for the purchase of SOLINET members' archive
tapes--both retrospective and current. .
These developments are the first to indicate that SOLINET seriously
plans to establish a network independent of and apart from
membership in OCLC. Presumably this change would occur at the
end of the 4 year tie·in contract SOLINET now has with OCLC.
Nine “SOLINET reactor groups" of about ten persons each are being
~ established to react to information issued by OCLC about system
features it is developing. Each of the nine groups is concerned
with a different aspect of library work. Reactions from individ— ’
ual group members will be the basis of the SOLINET response to
OCLC.
Two UK librarians have been invited by SOLTNET to serve on these
specialized panels. Adelle Dailey will be in the group looking at
music scores and sound recordings cataloging and Jean Graef will
participate in the acquisitions group.
Ms. Dailey and Ms. Graef were chosen from nominations made through-
out the network. Their participation will give UK a voice in
future SOLINET and OCLC development.

Anthropologists Study MIK
Anthropology students under the direction of Prof. Van Willigan
are doing research on role theory this semester using MIK's
Reference Dept. as their source of data.
According to the students' "Proposal for Research", the concept
"role" refers to the behavioral performance of a person directed
at some other person. Role theory is especially useful when the ·
objective is to evaluate the behavior of a person relative to the
standards the actor holds for him/herself and the standards held

 131
by other persons with whom he or she interacts. Role theory can
contribute to the evaluation of reference service by answering a
: number of questions such as: 1) How can the performance of the
reference service be measured against a standard of excellence or
2) Is reference service satisfactorily meeting the expectations
of users?
The students will spend time observing and talking with both li-
brarians and patrons. They will provide the Reference Dept. with
a summary of their findings which they hope to submit as a paper
to a library journal.

uNlyEBSl[Y SENAIE MEEIINQ
The first regular University Senate meeting of 1976 was held Monday,
February 9. Malcolm Jewell, the new chairman, informed the Senate of
the Senate Council's efforts to find an acceptable means of enforcing
the No Smoking Policy. No satisfactory method has been found so far.
The major item on the agenda was the College of Nursing's proposed
two—year program. Dean Marion McKenna described it as an effort to
provide for the current and emerging roles of nurses for whom the
university does not presently have programs. The program as approved
by the Senate will be an upper division professional program. It is
anticipated that the increasing number of two year programs, such as
those offered by community colleges as Associate Degree, will serve
as feeder schools to the upper division nursing program.

i A vote on whether to extend the Library Services and Construction
Act (LSCA) through September 1981 is currently pending in Congress.
A recent ALA "Washington Newsletter" expressed strong approval of the .
bill but cautions that the US Office of Education proposes to replace
it with a so-called "Library Partnership Act" that would keep funding
  decisions at the federal level. Kentucky's own Carl Perkins is
chairman of the House Committee on Education & Labor that will be
considering the final bill.
