FROM THE EDITOR'S DESK .
As the summer draws to a close, we know that the fall
semester is right around the corner. The students will be back
in full force. This is a perfect opportunity to do your quick
write—up of your unit, if you haven't done so already. This is
the last reminder I'll publish. PLEASE! contribute to the Green
Bean and make it your newsletter.
As some of you may have noticed in last Sunday's Parade
Magazine (from the August 17, 1986 Lexington Herald-Leader),
librarians (and probably other library personnel) were ranked #1
for having the least stressful occupation. Granted, compared to
a fireman or a pilot, working in a library is pretty relaxing.
However, I'll wager they never worked at a reserve or reference
desk during six—week exams, or when a photocopier was out-of-
order.
Happy reading. -KK
GOOD—BYE AND GOOD LUCK!!

LS2000 OPAC TRAINING UPDATE
The OPAC Training Subcommittee has been working on several
instruction packages over the past year which will be used this
fall for OPAC training. The computer—assisted instruction
program is finished and ready for use on the Prime Computer
terminals. Passwords have been given to department heads and
branch librarians. The passwords are good for four hours of

 ..2..
connect time and won‘t expire until October 10. This program
will be helpful to people who have not used the system
extensively. Additional passwords for staff and/or patrons can
be obtained at the King Reference Desk. The entire program takes
approximately two hours to complete, but it is comprised of five
sections which can be completed individually. Beginning this
fall it will be used for all English 102 classes. By the spring
semester this will reach 90% of the freshmen. OPAC training will
also be incorporated into all future upper-level B.I. sessions. I
The 10-page guide, the promotional videotape, and the 50-
minute OPAC presentation are nearly complete and will be
available soon. One use of the videotape will be to promote the
system on visits to campus departments. The 50—minute
presentation will also be used on visits to departments and in
scheduled open sessions in the Gallery. Times and dates for the
open sessions will be announced and posted soon, and there will
be a sign-up sheet at the King Reference Desk. The presentation
will also be available on request by any group.

M. I. KING LIBRARY SYSTEM .... MEET THE UNITS
MEET THE ART LIBRARY (by Meg Shaw)
The Art Library's primary mission is to serve the Art and
Theater Departments of the College of Fine Arts. Other students,
faculty and staff members from many different departments of the
University, as well as members of the Lexington community and
students from other colleges and universities also use the Art
Library. Annual attendance is around 22,000, varying from several
thousand each month during fall and spring semesters to several
hundred per month during other times of the years.
The Art Library is staffed by a librarian, Meg Shaw, and a
technician, Susan Osborn, from 8:00 to 4:30, weekdays. Student
assistants, about ten during fall and spring semesters, fewer at
. other times, staff the library in the evening and on weekends.

 ....4..
They also check out and reshelve books and help answer some of
the many reference questions we get. we circulate about 15,000
books each year and answer 12,000 questions, which range from
"where's the pencil sharpener?" to "How much is the painting
worth that has been in my grandmother's attic for 50 years?"
Our collection grows by about 800 volumes per year, and now
numbers 28,816 volumes. It covers a wide range of subjects in
studio art and art history, theater history and technical
theater. We also have a collection of about 2,000 play scripts
which we catalogue in the Art Library. These are the only books
in our collection that are not listed in the main catalog.
Many students find the Art Library a convenient and quiet
place to study or just pass the time. we have an interesting
collection of Japanese woodblock prints and reproductions that is
on permanent display, which everyone is welcome to come and see.
MEET ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES (by Pat Lloyd)
Administrative Services has 8 full—time employees and 5
student assistants. This department is responsible for all
business and personnel activities within the Library system.
This includes:
1. Accounting
2. Budget preparation
3. Purchase of all equipment and supplies
4. Personnel
5. Shipping and receiving
6. Library truck run
( 7. In—house printing
8. Repair of equipment
9. and the list goes on and on.
An Administrative Service requisition must be submitted to
the proper director for signature and forwarding to the head of
Administrative Services before this department can perform the
required task. This is necessary to schedule the work since the
demand for services is so great.
Our goal is to help each department reach the objectives of
1 that department.
