 A . INFORUM
Library Addition/Computing Center
. The Lexington Campus and the Central Administration have given
priority status to the construction of an addition to the King
_ Library North building. The addition would house central library
services, the fine arts collections, and the Computing Center.
,, The 1931 portion of King South would be renovated for Special
Collections, while the 1963 King South addition would become a
science and technology library. ·
Funding could come (if no problems arise) as early as January
1986, with the move beginning as early as 1990.
The full report (submitted by J. Robert Heath and Paul A. Willis)
is on reserve under Paul Willis' name.

The Bibliographic_Instruction Course Committee is beginning to
prepare materials for the proposed Spring 1986 course debut. We

History of the Libraries: Growth and Development
= The founding date of the library is usually cited as 1909, when
the term "university library" was first used and when the first
building dedicated exclusively to library purposes opened its
· . door. As a system, the library would perforce begin with the
. Agricultural Experiment Station Library, which officially existed
as early as 1885. However, it was not until 196M that this
library finally became an adminstrative unit of the system. .
. The university's library, with a collection of 3,000 volumes and
A staffed by the president's secretary, was open for student use
only in the afternoon during its first year. The following year
V it was open all day, although no bibliographic control of the
collection was provided until 1912 and not until 1913 were
students allowed to borrow books without making a deposit.
The years 1912-19lM were momentous for the newly created library.
In addition to gaining a bibliographic control of its own
— j collection, it _was given responsibility for all campus .
"libraries" with `the exception of Law and the Agricultural
Experiment Station. Centralized processing of all` new books
added to these collections began during this period, as did the
_ first lending and borrowing of library materials through
interlibrary loan.
The current .policy of service to citizens of the state and
support `of extension work was officially declared a function of
the library in 1916. The librarian's annual report for that same
_ year listed major needs as more book funds, increased space for
collections and patrons, and additional trained staff.
In 19U6 a Division of Archives was established at the university
·as a joint effort on the part of the University Library and the
_Bureau of Source Materials in Higher Education. Several years
later this division became a section of the Special Collections
Department.
The library's Microfilm Center was established in 1955 as the
result of ar sizable grant and with the express purpose of
microfilming Kentucky newspapers and making the film available to
publishers and other Kentucky libraries on a nonprofit basis.
‘ The library's oral history program, begun in 1973, was designed ·
to develop primary source materials which would increase the
usefulness of its modern political manuscript collection. This
program soon expanded to provide primary source materials, both
“ oral and audiovisual, supplementing other collections, especially
Kentuckiana. The latest project, again the result of a grant, is
to initiate processing of the library's photographic collection.

 » 3 l
The growth of the collection in size, scope, and usefulness has
_ been slow, but steady since its beginning. The quality of its
. collection, particularly in the area of Kentuckiana, owes much to
the efforts of library-oriented faculty during the 1930s and
l9HOs. Local newspapers frequently carried articles by
professors recommending that old books and records be donated to .
U the University of Kentucky Library. The fiscal year of 197U-1975
saw the `creation of a Resource Utilization Section devoted to .
developing an effective application of library resources and,
utilization of library personnel in meeting informational needs
of the academic community. By fall 1975 this section had evolved
into the present Collection Development Department.
In _ 196M the Agriculture Library was organized using the
_Agricultura1 Experiment Station collection as its nucleus. That
same year the Agriculture Library and the Law Library became
units of the system. Since that date the Medical Library and its
branch ‘in the College of Pharmacy have also become loose1y‘
, connected with the King Library and its branches to form the
present library system. “
The University of Kentucky Library System currently has a
collection éof more than 1.7 million volumes and_ receives more
I than_25,000 periodical and serial titles. Total microform units
held by the system exceed 1.8 million. The number of
professional staff grew from one in 1909 to 66_in 1979, while
nonprofessional ,assistants increased from none to 123. Annual
i reports of the librarians have shown that the scope and number of
_ services provided have increased along with the growth of the
collection and the addition of professional expertise.
