Reference Department  
This past summer, the Reference Department in King Library received l
the first volume of the new Arts and Humanities Citation Index.
This index offers the most comprehensive and up—to—date multidisci-
plinary indexing to the world's leading journals in architecture, art,
classics, dance, film, TV and radio, folklore, history, linguistics
and philology, literature, music, philosophy, theater, theology and
religious studies. It covers every substantive item in each of the
900 journals indexed including articles, letters, editorials, notes,
meeting abstracts, discussions, corrections, errata, poems, short
stories, plays, excerpts from books, musical scores, chronologies,
bibliographies, discographies, filmographies, as well as reviews of
books, films, records, art exhibits, TV and radio programs, dance
musical and theatrical performances, AHCI is issued twice a year with
annual cumulations.

 AHCI has the same format as Social Sciences Citation Index and
Science Citation Index. Each issue has three main sections: the
source index, the permuterm subject index, and the citation index.
The source index provides an alphabetical list of works by author
with full bibliographic citation and author's address. The permuterm
subject index “involves the permutation of all significant works
within each sentence of the title and subtitle of an article to form
all possible pairs of terms." To overcome the problem of undescrip—
tive titles, so frequently found in the humanities, the editors of
AHCI have adopted an enrichment policy. For example, even though an
article on the work of Ernest Hemingway does not include his name in
its title, the editors will still list his name in the permuterm index.
The citation index is arranged alphabetically by cited author with
references to the article in which a work is cited. Artists‘ names
and titles of specific works of art which are the main subject of
articles but are not formally cited are, nonetheless, cited in the
citation index. These implicit citations can be as important as those
formally cited. k
As each subsequent volume of this index is published, AHCI will
undoubtedly become one of the major indexes in the reference collection.

Gordon J. Kinney, Professor Emeritus, School of Music, has an article

Attendance (6 branches) - 12% increase

No valid conclusions can be drawn from the above statistics. Even
when compared to statistics for all of last year no trends can be
readily discerned.
Literature Searches ~ in July—September of 1977, 57 searches were
made. For the same three months in 1978, 59 searches were made.
The decision to increase charges for this service apparently had no
negative effect on its use.

_ September 1978 has increased 32% compared to the same three months the .

Collection ~ new serials added in hard copy ~ 76; monographs received —
4,786 volumes.

sizable reduction in the backlog.

tape a program aired cn KET for classroom showing at a more convenient
New Policies ~
1. All books and atlasses received by the Maps Unit will be
cataloged by the Catalog Department. Government maps will be
cataloged by the Maps Unit with a copy of the main entry sent to GPD.
The purpose of this prccedural change is to make information more
accessible to the user.
2. Ballen was accepted as our major American approvals vendor
because (a) it furnishes publications from a specific, limited number
of publishers; (b) its discount in price and its speed of delivery;
(c) its ability to respond quickly to needed profile changes. Some
units such as Engineering and Art elected to go off the approval plan.
3. The Collection Development Department began entering gifts
into BATAB. .
Studies and Projects ~
* l. The Business Library instituted a "mini" users survey in
September. A detailed tally of the results will appear in the October
2. The Acquisitions Department began a study to determine the
average length of time between requesting a book and receiving it
(placement by a selector of a request for a book and its receipt) and
between receipt and the completion of processing.
3. The Catalog Department is conductinga test run for cards for
