David Kaser's Comments
Paul Willis would like to share David Kaser‘s recent letter to him
with you;
"My purpose in writing is two~fold. First and most important is
to tell you once again how much I appreciated your thoughtful hospi-
tality during my brief visit to your campus last week. Lexington
is as attractive still as it ever was, and I can readily understand
how you can attract so many obviously competent people to join
your staff.
My second purpose in writing is to summarize some of my observations
regarding your utilization of space in your tri—partite building.
I gather that your four objectives in reviewing space utilization
are as follows: .
l) to maximize its utilization;
2) to minimize staffing requirements;
3) to group like or related services;
4) to reduce user frustration;
although not necessarily in that order of priority.
Ralph Ellsworth long ago identified as an important consideration in
building planning that what he calls the "keys" of the library be
visible immediately to the entering patron, These keys are reference,
the card catalog, and circulation,) I am not at all sure that you
can group these three services so that they can be seen from your
entrance, but I would encourage you to tonsider the desirability of
doing this if possible. l have no quarrel with putting reference
in the first floor of the South addition, if ou`cannot get it into
the lobby, especially if access to th t area through the old core
stack could be freed up a little. l gint there is also good reason
to bring Collection Development into _e tame area.
One thing I think you will want to do over the next few months is
to develop a projection of your spade needs for the next two decades,
so that any interim alterations ypu initiate can be consistent with
a long—range goal. My guess is that you will probably have to
construct some new space and that it might best be developed north
of North. If that be found true, then it seems reasonable to begin
to develop North as a public service bu lding now with the bringing
together there of all periodicals and m crotorms. This long—range
planning activity witl also be a vgluab e and disciplining intellec-
tual exercise for both your staff Ind your tacnlty advisory group
and will probably also gain you some additional credibility with
the University administration.
Then a number of odds and ends:
l. I encourage you to consider compact shelving for some of
your closed-stack areas on the ground—level (e.g., documents, V
special collections).

 s 3 -
2. You can compact your current periodical shelving by
using shelves with 4—inch brackets rather than 7—inch.
3. You are considerably short in the number of reader-
stations available; as you add new ones, I would suggest that you
emphasize lounge chairs, which can often be more economical both
i Of CaPital ¤¤8P ahd of floor Spade utilization than conventional
tables and chairs.
4. Can anything be done to speed up the microfilming of
retrospective Kentucky newspapers (especially with someone else‘s
money) so that the bulky and disintegratlng originals can be
discarded? _
5. Do you not also wish to discard the documents that you
hold also in microform?
6· Might you not beneficially prod the University adminis-
tration to begin to try to rational ge its acquiring and handling
of A—V software and hardware?
· 7. I assume that you are moving as promptly as feasible
toward the utilization of electroniv exit controls, machine-based
·circulation systems, COM catalogd, sto., all of which have spatial
8, You might wish to have the University engineer check the
floor—loading in certain parts of the Qrlqindl King building
(e.g., maps, bibliG9f@PhY¢ docume¤PB$·
9. I expect that faculty stn ies are unlikely to be used
maximally when (a) they are all bronght together in one P1¤¤€» ¤¤d
(b) they cannot be locked,"
Reclassification Unit
As part of the change to LC, the Library is now ready to begin
forming the reclassification unit. At this time, we are looking
for current support staff members with relevant experience in any
aspect of cataloging who would be interested in working on this
project. The assignment would be as a temporary (l2—l8 mos.)
lateral transfer and at the end of the roject, thi person would
. return to a regular department. Any stgff member interested in
participating in the reclassification unlt should see Faith Harders
within the next week.
