The OPAC Training Subcommittee is planning to hold regular
staff training meetings modeled after the meeting held on
February 27. The meetings will begin shortly after the Library
receives its LS/2000 monitor/projector (due to arrive in mid-
May). The meetings will include an update on the LS/2000 system
as a whole and a discussion of individual searching techniques
and problems. The training packets (which are still on Reserve
under Olson, and are also available in the Reference Department
at King and in the Medical Center Library) should provide both an
introduction to the system and a basis for discussion at the
meetings. We are interested in hearing about your experiences
with LS/2000 and hope to answer any specific question you may
have about the system.
The OPAC Training Subcommittee is currently working on
several training packages which will be available this summer to
both patrons and staff. These include a lO—page searching guide.
a computer-assisted instruction package, a promotional videotape,
and a 50-minute lecture using the monitor/projector. The
Subcommittee plans to use the latter in meetings with individual
departments this summer to provide a general overview and an
introductory training session for the LS/2000.
Times and dates for the staff training meetings will be 1
announced later. (Submitted by Laura Olson)

The Agriculture Library is working on a special project as
part of the 100 year celebration of the Kentucky Agricultural
Experiment Station (KAES). The KAES publications have been
indexed only selectively by the Bibliography of_Agpigglpp;g, the
major indexing service in the field, published by the Naticnal
Agriculture Library. The UK Agriculture Library staff saw the
need for access to these publications, and decided to create
their own database containing bibliographic and subject `
information for all the KAES publications. In doing so, they
became the first land grant institution to undertake such a
monumental task. The database entries are also sent to the
National Agriculture Library for inclusion in AGRICOLA, the
online version of the Bibliography of Agripglture. Most of {DQ
indexing is done by Agnes McDowell, the Collection Development
Librarian at the Agriculture Library. This project was the

subject of a recent cover story (complete with a photo!) for
Agriculture Libraries Information Notes (Volume 12, number 3,
( March 1986).
