Next Green Bean: Friday, November 21, 1986
Deadline for inclusion: Friday, November 14, 1986
Production Staff: Editor, Kerry Kresse; Typist, Scott Lutz;
Printer, Cecil Madison.


Due to technical difficulties beyond our control, the Green
Bean is a week late (our printer was on vacation). I'm almost
hesitant to put in the schedule for the LS/2000 Training
workshops after muffing it TWICE! But, I'll try. My apologies -
to the Training Committee for the seemingly endless typos.
As many of you know, we are fast approaching our 500th
edition of the Green Bean. Many people have felt that the name
was unsuitable for a publication of this sort, and I agree. with
the upcoming landmark of Number 500, and the fact that we're
about to run out of paper, there's no time like the present to
seize the opportunity and make a change or two.
The question is, what do we change? The content of the
Green Bean is unlikely to change, but the title (and certainly
the color!) are prime candidates.
Most library newsletters have the sort of names gou would
expect: News, Newsletter, Focus, Source, Library Progress,
Access, Pers ectives, Communique. I like to thin UK is a unique
place, so I think our newsletter should also be unique (though
probably not as unique as the Green Bean...). I had a few ideas,
such as Odds & Ends, or Etc.. However, because this is your
newsletter too, piease fill out the ballot below and may the best
name win! => Speak now or forever hold your peace!
Please vote for one of the following titles listed below, and for
one color. Return your ballot to KERRY KRESSE, CHEMISTRY/PHYSICS
(Note: The phrase "M.I. King Library" will probably not be part
of the title, but will appear on the title page.)
