The newlettter's title has changed, however, from the earliest days
when it was simply called_Bulletin. Beginning with No. 29 (Dec. ‘73)
the title Green Bean was adopted, with the subtitle added somewhat
later. Old timers report that the name was bestowed in deference `
both to the green tinge of the newsletter's paper and to the pride
certain Kentuckians take in their vegetables.
The King Library is now the proud possessor of a suggestion box ’ .
located next to the public catalog in Reference. Both students and
faculty have been using the suggestion box since it’s debut last
Friday, and it appears to be quite popular. we've received over two
dozen suggestions already. Suggestions have included new items for
the library to purchase, comments on the temperature, comments about
periodicals, and one endearing statement from an anonymous student
who wrote, "I like the library just fine." _
The suggestions are picked up once a day and are distributed to_the
library staff members who could most logically answer them. ’If the
suggestion is signed with an address given, we reply directly by maiL ‘
If the suggestion is anonymous, we reply on the bulletin board over
- the box. In all cases we sign our responses in order to dispel the
aura of nameless bureaucracy which often pervades a library.

The Chronicle gf Higher Education should be required reading for
every academic librarian. Published weekly in newspaper format in
Washington, D.C.,the Chronicle offers a wide spectrum of news of
interest to the academic community. A sampling of topics from the
November 17th issue will Prove the point: enrollment increases,
financial pressures facing scholarly journals, "weekend colleges,"
continuing education, impact of default on higher education in New
York, involvement of Boston colleges and universities in desegregation,
the costliness of federal government guidelines in higher education.
In addition there is a full page article on Lionel Trilling and
another in a series on the Ladd-Lipset survey of faculty behavior and
attitudes. The survey alone would make the Chronicle worthwhile
reading, but there are also eleven pages of academic job openings
(including those for librarians) and numerous announcements of up-
coming conferences. The Chronicle is available in the Newspapers/
Microtexts department and in the Education Library.
