INTERNATIONAL
EXCHANGE
PROGRAMS

LUbraries, learned societies, government institutions, and
individuals have participated in the exchange of
publications for centuries.

"The exchange of publications constitutes one of the ways
in which science manifests its universality." This is a
historical fact. In order that one could better understand
the importance and comprehensiveness of this part of
library operations, a brief historical review on
international exchanges is necessary.

As we know, no organization has sufficient funds to
purchase all the books that it needs. That is why the
exchange of publications has flourished and developed as
a major supplementary method of acquiring publication.
If is a two-sided transaction, half-way between a sale
and a present. The history of exchanges goes back to
1694, when the Royal Library of France exchanged some
of its duplicates for new English and German publications.
In the 1740s, the Universities of Lund, Abo and Greifswald
established a 'Commercium Literarum' which served as a
model for later exchanges with other universities. In 1817,
the German Akademischer Tauschverein was founded,
where, by 1882, sixty-eight participants were included
from Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
In the 18th century, the American Philosophical Society
in Philadelphia began to exchange its publications with
European learned societies. In Boston, the American
Academy of Arts and Sciences initiated exchanges of its
works with other institutions. In 1834, the U.S. Congress
made the first provision for the regular supply of
government publications for use in official (between
governments) exchanges, where the librarian of Congress
was the authorized person to exchange public documents.

The greatest respect for the stimulation of institutional
exchanges belongs to the Frenchman, Alexander
Vattemare, who "felt that culture, good will and peace
could be disseminated through the exchange of
duplicates," and the Englishman, James Smithson, who
at his death left a large sum of money with which the
Smithsonian Institution in Washington was founded in
1846. In 1886, two conventions were held and signed in
Brussels which provided the establishment of exchange
bureaus throughout the world. Supplemental to these
are: a) bilateral or executive arrangements (best example
is UNESCO), b) multi-lateral conventions between
governments, c) general cultural agreements on
dissemination of scientific literature. The promotion of
cooperation in the field of librarianship and bibliography
is carried out through the activities of IFLA which was
founded in 1927.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE


VOL. 4, NO. 9, SEPTEMBER 1978
BELTSVILLE, MARYLAND 20705


ISSN: 0095-2699






(Continued from page I
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, since its establishment
in 1862, has maintained a publications exchange program
to support the basic mission of the Department as stated
in 5 U.S. Code 511 & 514: the Secretary of Agriculture
"shall procure and preserve all information, the general
design and duties of which shall be to acquire and diffuse
among the people of the U.S. useful information on
subjects connected with Agriculture..." This information-
gathering activity is reflected in the collection of books,
serials, correspondence, statistical records, and through
the accomplishments of practical and scientific
experiments. The publication exchange activity for the
Department has been delegated by the Secretary to the
Deputy Director for Technical Information Systems
(TIS), of the Department's Science and Education
Administration (SEA).

Dissemination of information and exchange of publications
in agricultural sciences is performed through TIS activities
and close work with the Library of Congress (international
acquisition programs) and FAO (AGRIS/AGLINET which
is the Worldwide Network of Agricultural Libraries).
Agricultural exchange of publications is based mostly on
governmental (or government-supported) research reports
and series, and that is why it differs from engineering or
university exchange arrangements which are based on
theses, inaugural dissertations, and lectures. Many USDA
agencies deal with and are a part of international
information activities, e.g.,. Foreign Agricultural Service;
Economics, Statistics and Cooperatives Service (formerly:
Economic Research Service), Federal Research (formerly:
Agricultural Research Service), Office of Governmental
and Public Affairs (formerly: Office of Communication)
and others. They all prepare reports and series of
publications of USDA studies and surveys which are a very
important part of information dissemination. The Library
has available for exchange those printed publications
issued by the Department and its agencies as cited in:
List of A ailable Publications. This list, in its directions to
users, stated that "no publications'issued by the Department
of Agriculture will be sent regularly free of charge to any
foreign government, institution, resident or private agency
unless arrangements have been made by the Director of the
National Agricultural Library..." (now Deputy Director
TIS/SEA). Presently, the Exchange Unit is responsible for
about 13,000 foreign exchange arrangements. An average
of over 7,000 adjustments in exchange file are completed
each year. All addresses are reviewed periodically to
determine if publications are received from them. An


estimated 70% of the 23,000 serial publications curteftil
received at NAL are acquired through exchange ''i
arrangements wluch extend to more than 150- ountri.,
The following are countries Technical Information
Systems has most exchange arrangements with:
Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Dewmnt
England, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, )apan.I|
Mexico, Netherlands, Sweden, and USSR.

Published and unpublished data from all countries and ih
all languages are required to meet the needs of
agricultural scientists. Exchange sources will continue to
be sought from international organizations and
governments, educational institutions and associations.

The publications exchange program of the Department
will intensify with the developments of new technologies
in information dissemination, networking and resource
sharing. L&

AGRICULTURAL HISTORY SYMPOSIUM

-- Submitted by George Lewis,
Director of Libraries,
Mississippi State University

The 8th Annual Symposium on Agricultural Histroy,
sponsored by the Agricultural History Society, Mississippi
State University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
was held on the campus of Mississippi State University
on June 21-23, 1978. The Symposium theme was
"Southern Agriculture Since the Civil War."

The Agricultural History Society, the oldest scholarly group
of its type in the United States, was established in 1919.
Its purpose is to stimulate research and study in
agricultural history, especially but not exclusively in the
United States. The Society publishes the respected
journal, Agricultural History.

The Symposium featured eight sessions, three luncheons
and two banquets. Professor Gilbert Fite, distinguished
professor at Georgia and formerly President of Eastern
Illinois University, presented an overview. Papers for the


regular sessions dealt with agricultural education, farm
life, southern crops, science and technology and
agricultural policy. Luncheon speakers were John K.
Bettersworth of Mississippi State University, Paul W. Gates
of Cornell University, and Theodore Saloutos of UCLA.
Banquet speakers were Charles R. Sayre of the Staple
Cotton Cooperative Association and Congressman David A':
Bowen, Mississippi, Chairman of the House Subcommittee
on Cotton.

Total attendance was ninety-four (94), with approximately
two thirds of the attendees coming from as far away as :
Connecticut, Michigan, Montana, and California.
Prominent participants in addition to those named above,
included Harold Woodman of Purdue; John T. Schlebecker
of the Smithsonian Institute; Harry Fornari, Vice President,
Bunge Corporation of New York; William N. Parker of
Yale, former president of the Economic History
Association and currently Vice President, Agricultural
History Society; Bennett Wall of Tulane University; and
W.H. Droze, Provost, Texas Woman's University.

The Symposium Proceedings will be co-edited by
Dr. Roy V. Scott and Dr. George L. Robson, Jr., and
will be published in book form by Agricultural History
Society. The 9th Symposium will be held in 1979 at
Kansas State University. Q&

CAPITOL HILL LEGISLATION


Legislation under consideration or reports of the most pertinent agricultural legislation before the U.S. Congress are available at
Federal depository libraries where they may be used; larger public libraries also have sets available. USDA personnel should
contact their D.C. Headquarters office for access to bills.

H.R. 9482 (S 3272). House Committee on Agriculture reported on July 10 a bill to amend the Packers and
Stockyards Act of 1921 (H. Rept. 95-1337). Bill makes clear that auction barn tariffs which assess charges for
the sale of livestock on a percentage basis rather than a per-head basis are lawful and that the Secretary of
Agriculture may not force any market to charge on a basis other than a basis elected by the market. It also
makes clear that the Secretary of Agriculture has the authority to prescribe maximum or minimum rates or
charges, or both. The bill also would require the Secretary to establish an inter-agency USDA task force to
study and report to the Congress with respect to methods by which sellers of livestock or their agents might
disclose to packers and auction barns the existence of liens or other security interests in the livestock which
they sell.

The Senate bill dealing with value based tariffs, S. 3272, was reported by the Senate Committee on Agriculture.
Nutrition, and Forestry on July 31 (S Rept. 95-1053).

H.R. 10584 (and S. 2968). Agricultural Trade Act of 1978 was reported by the House Committee on
Agriculture on July 10 (House Rept. 95-1338, pt. 1): marked up by the House Committee on International
Relations August 2. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry marked up the comparable
Senate bill August 4.

H.R. 11122 (and S. 2757). The Agricultural Land Retention Act reported by the House Committee on
Agriculture on July 28. (H. Rept. 95-1400). Establishes an agricultural land review commission as well as a
demonstration program for protecting agricultural land from being used for non-agricultural purposes.

H.R. 11504. Agricultural Credit Act of 1978 {H. Rept. 95-1344). Provides an economic emergency loan
program to farmers and ranchers in the United States and extends the Emergency Livestock Credit Act. House
agreed to Conference Report July 19, and the Senate agreed July 20. The President signed the act August 4.
(PL 95-334)

H.R. 12511 (and S 3085). Extends for one year the child care food program of the National School Lunch
Act and the women, infants, and children program of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966; reported from the
House Committee on Education and Labor on May 15, 1978 (H. Rept. 95-1153, pt. 1); referred to the House
Appropriations Committee July 18, 1978 and reported from that Committee July 27. (H. Rept. 95-1153, pt. 2)

& 3085 extends and amends the special supplemental food program and the child care food program. Reported
by the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry on May 15 (S. Rept. 95-884); reported by
the Senate Appropriations Committee on July 19 (S. Rept. 95-1020). The bill was referred also to the
Appropriations Committee because it created a new entitlement for the Special Supplemental Food Program for
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and therefore requires additional funding. This bill passed the Senate on
July 21.
(Continued on page 6)






(Continued from page 5)
HiR. 13125. Makes appropriations for Agriculture, Rural Development, and related agencies programs for
FY 79; reported by the Senate Committee on Appropriations on August 1 (S Rept. 95-1058). Early flor
action by the full Senate expected. Difference between the House and Senate versions to be ironed out by
conference committee. C
