The Editor extends the profound apologies of the Faculty Secretary

In the Library Faculty meeting of January 16- the "Facilities" section
of the Planning Committee Report, was discussed. Two major issues
emerged. The first was the problem of the arrangement of departments
in King South. The Planning Report advocates the general goal of
locating all public service units on the first floor. The problems
in this proposal that were raised included the location of the public
catalog away from Technical Services, and the fact that the core T
stacks are not removable.
The second issue raised was the Planning Committee's proposal for a
book depository to relieve the most crowded of the branch libraries.
' These libraries would be carefully weeded, and then little-used items
would be removed to the book depository (a renovated classroom
building nearby). The point was raised that a recent book by Ralph
Ellsworth* showed libraries moving away from the book depository
concept. Omer Hamlin suggested that Ellsworth was promoting new
construction, which is unlikely at UK in the near future. Mr. Hamlin
believes that the Medical Center Library could be weeded from 150,000
to 100,000 and the collection stabilized at 100,000. _
Compact shelving, which costs twice as much as standard shelving but
which doubles shelving space, was proposed as an alternative. The
problem with this, however, is that some buildings cannot support
the weight. ·Temperature and humidity control to preserve the stored
materials was also raised as a problem; at this time Funkhouser is
unsatisfactory in these respects. Pence Hall was proposed as a
possible alternative.
John Bryant questioned whether more storage space was needed at this -
time. Adelle Dailey referred back to the questionnaire which showed
that at least six of the branch libraries have critical space
problems. Ruth Brown and Becky Heath updated the Committee's infor-
mation by reporting that the space problem in the Agriculture Library
has been alleviated due to expansion into the basement. Paul Willis
noted also that a Law Library expansion has been proposed.
Finally, Ed O'Hara stressed the importance of adequate staffing and
good service in a storage facility.
