The Center for Research Libraries
he Center for Research Libraries is a membership-owned-and-
operated library located in Chicago. The Center's 138 members are
university, college and research libraries throughout North America
who participate in cooperative collection development programs to
increase the availability of research materials to the scholarly community.
Mission and Function Statement
The Center is a not-for-profit corporation established and operated by schol-
arly research institutions to strengthen the library and information resources
for research and to enhance the accessibility of those resources.
The Center functions as a cooperative, membership-based research library
that acquires, stores, preserves, provides bibliographic access to and lends/
delivers from its collections of 3.6 million volumes and 1.1 million micro-
Collections and Services
The Center's collections are comprised of rarely-held research materials and
are intended to complement and supplement the local library collections of
the member institutions.
Many of its strongest collections are based on materials that were deposited
during the early years of the.Center. In the 1950s and now, member libraries
recognize the research value of specific materials, but think that acquisition,
collection maintenance, and efficient use of stack space can be done most ef-
fectively in a centralized collection. One collection that illustrates this theory
is the Center's foreign newspaper collection.
The Center collected by deposit several thousand volumes of newsprint of
foreign newspapers and some microfilmed titles. In 1956, the Center began to
administer a project, begun in 1938, to microfilm important foreign newspa-
pers. The newsprint collection is still maintained, and the Foreign Newspa-
per Microfilm Program continues to provide long-term access to and preser-
vation of titles that are rarely in North American libraries. It currently
continues to receive major emphasis in terms of the acquisition of backfiles
and the addition of new titles. This collection supports research in global his-
tory, political science, and international relations.

The Center's collection of more than 600,000 foreign dissertations also is com-
posed of important collections that were deposited by members and titles ob-
tained through an extensive acquisition program. The titles in the dissertation
collection are from countries outside of the U.S. and Canada and cover all sub-
jects in the sciences, social sciences and humanities.
Other important collection components are: more than 700,000 U.S. state docu-
ments, acquired comprehensively from 1952 to date and with significant pre-
1952 back files; U.S. National Archives and Great Britain Public Record Office
materials in microform [These holdings are significant to history faculty in all
specializations.]; over 200 major microform and reprint sets [These holdings
support interdisciplinary studies particularly for the U.S., Great Britain, Germa-
ny, France, Italy, and Spain.]; U.S. general circulation newspapers and over 500
ethnic newspapers published by immigrant groups in the U.S.; foreign scientific
and technical serials and monographs [These holdings are in the pure and ap-
plied sciences, with a substantial retrospective collection and 13,000 journal sub-
scriptions for current research.]; an extensive collection of the publications of the
Academy of Sciences of the U.S.S.R. from its founding in 1723 to date [These
holdings include many of our current scientific serial subscriptions and materi-
als of interest to Slavic studies faculty.]; special collections in education, includ-
ing historical collections of U.S. primary and secondary textbooks (85,000 vol-
umes), U.S. college catalogs (241,000 volumes), and children's books (58,000);
and area studies materials supporting research in Africa, East Asia, South Asia
and Southeast Asia.
The third world materials have been acquired since the 1960's with the assis-
tance of appropriate area bibliographers at member institutions serving as col-
lection development specialists. They serve on areal collection management
committees such as CAMP (Cooperative Africana Microfilm Project), SAMP
(South Asian Microfilm Project), SEAM (South East African Microfilm Project),
LAMP, (Latin American Microfilm Project-1970's), and MEP, (Middle East Pro-
ject-1984) thereby ensuring that rare, important and specialized resources are ac-
quired, preserved, and made available for advanced research by member insti-
tution users throughout North America.
Most use of the Center's collection is through interlibrary loan (ILL): any mem-
ber library can obtain for a patron unlimited amounts of materials through ILL.
The loan period is indefinite, since most material is borrowed for research pro-
jects. In addition, the Center will acquire specific kinds of materials to meet the
research needs of a patron (within the limit of $2,000 per patron per project):
foreign dissertations, materials in microform that record the activities of nation-
al governments, and newspaper files that add to a title already in the Center's
The Center's expanded preservation program, developed in 1985/86, consists of
recommendations focused on the goal of preserving the intellectual content of
the materials in the collection; this plan emphasizes environmental controls and
conversion to microfilm as the primary means of preservation.
The Center's deposit policy, a segment of its collection development policy,
states that service copies of microfilm are eligible for deposit by member librar-
ies. Under the provisions of this policy, members engaged in preservation mi-
crofilming projects have been sending positive copies to be added to the Cen-
ter's collection and then to be available for loan to all who have access to the
collections. The Center is studying its role as a lender of microfilm in this con-
text of the emerging national preservation program.

FROM THE DEPARTMENTS
Settling into New Home
The Acquisitions Department is pleased to announce that we have a new
home. On Monday, April 2nd, our staff moved books, baggage, and bulky
knits into the newly renovated space on the 2nd floor of Library East.
Since the Acquisitions' team is responsible for ordering, receiving, and pay-
ing for all materials in the library system (except for the Legal Information
Center and the Health Center Library), it seems only fitting that our staff
should be together in a centralized location. Gone are the nook and cranny
offices, hallway work centers, and desks shrouded by boxes and miscellane-
ous library storage materials.
As we settle into our room with a view, we realize we would be remiss if
we did not thank the super teams from Systems, Access Services, and the
Business Offices-for their willingness to please and appease. The move to
Library East was a coordinated effort by these and numerous library de-
partments. The move was so smoothly orchestrated that the Acquisitions'
operations hardly skipped a beat.
It is clear to us that we have been provided a facility designed to help us
perform our jobs more effectively. It is also clear to us that our new prox-
imity to other Technical Services Departments can only enhance the Univer-
sity of Florida Libraries' effectiveness.
G&E Lauds Selectors' Efforts
The Gift and Exchange staff of the Acquisitions Department could not be
busier, but we (Phek and Pam) still have time to thank the super, wonder-
ful, terrific Library bibliographers and selectors for their outstanding work
in the dissemination of nearly 10,000 gift books that were stored in compact
shelving at Marston Science Library.
During December, January, and February, Library selectors not only added
to their busy schedules the time consuming task of reviewing 9834 books,
they also added nearly 1000 volumes of educational and research materials
to the Libraries' collections. Gift books added included new titles as well as
duplicate copies of heavily circulated titles and many titles that were indi-
cated as missing.
The books not selected for cataloging were offered to the general public in
the Annual Spring Book Sale. Those books that did not sell were given to
Gainesville's Friends of the Library, the correctional institution at Lawtey,
Peace Corp volunteers, and students from UFs English Department.
Selectors, we are sincerely grateful for all your help with the gift backlog

Gary Cornwell was one of three librarians recommended by the Gov-
ernment Documents Roundtable (GODORT) to serve on the Depository
Library Council to the Public Printer. Gary is an active GODORT mem-
ber and currently chairs its Cataloging Committee. The GODORT Steer-
ing Committee obviously recognized the value of Gary's expertise in
the area of GPO bibliographic records, a topic on which the Public
Printer frequently seeks Council's advice.
Gary truly has earned this appointment. He has been attending Council
meetings for years and is more active than most Council members at its
meetings. Next week at the Spring meeting Gary will make a presenta-
tion on Cataloging, lead a panel discussion on cataloging and chair a
meeting of the Superceded Documents Committee. It's about time the
Government Printing Office recognized his contributions.

FACULTY SABBATICAL EVALUATION
The tenured members of the library faculty

plications for sabbatical from faculty in P. K.
Yonge, the Library, the Counseling Center
and the Museum.
n April 8, the Gainesville Sun reprinted an article from the Los An-
geles Times about Marilyn vos Savant, who is listed in the Guiness
Book of World Records as having the highest IQ ever recorded.
Among the questions the reporter asked her was one on physical
attractiveness, which led to how she met her husband, Dr. Robert Jarvik,
inventor of the first permanent artificial heart. It seems the Doctor had
been calling, trying to meet her. Curious, she went to the library to look
up his biography and possibly find a photograph. She found what she
was looking for in a current issue of Vanity Fair. Let me next quote from
"It was a marvelous photograph of him," remembered vos Savant. "I stole
the magazine from the library. I thought, 'Oooh, I really like this man.' I
took it home and called back."
It is interesting that here we have someone considered to have one of the
highest IQs in the world, who thinks nothing of saying she has stolen ma-
terials from the library. I'm sure that she would never consider saying that
she went to the corer store and stole the latest issue of Vanity Fair from
the magazine rack. Why is it that many otherwise honest people seem to
lose something when they walk through the door of a library? We see it
every day in the Preservation Office: books with chapters tor out, illus-
trations cut out of magazines and books, covers torn off in an effort to de-
feat the security system. Most items we see can be repaired or replaced,
but they take a toll on our time and the Libraries' resources. However, I
don't think money is the most important issue here. People have the right
to expect that the materials and information they need will be available
when they need it. Theft and mutilation, aside from the cost to the library,
also effectively make these materials missing or damaged until the next
person comes looking for them, and then it may be a long time until they
are replaced, assuming replacement is possible.
I do not have any solutions or answers except to remind those of us who
work in libraries to remain vigilant. Sometimes we have to be "bad guys,"
pointing out to a patron that the way they are photocopying damages the
book, or explaining to them why eating is not allowed in the library, or in
training our student assistants and shelves to be on the lookout and re-
port people who are damaging materials. We have to try to fight, in any
way we can, the growth of the attitude that stealing from the library is not
The current display in the window of the Preservation Office shows some
of the many types of damage that we see and treat in the Conservation
Unit. Stop by and take a look. Ms. vos Savant writes a column appearing
in Parade magazine. I've written her for her comments. Will update later.
CMS E-Mail AND BITNET
FINALLY! Users of library e-mail accounts will soon be able to communicate
with colleagues in the outside world. It won't happen overnight; the conver-
sion of our accounts will take time and the transition period may be a bit con-
fusing, but it will be worth it in the long run.
Up until now all library e-mail addresses (userid's) began with "@". The block
of addresses assigned to us by NERDC was computer generated and could
not be changed. Problems arise as the "@" is confusing to computers outside
of the UF campus. This has meant that staff wanting to send e-mail off cam-
pus have had to get a separate account from the Faculty Support Center
(which are unavailable for USPS). In addition, the "@" addresses are far from
being "user friendly" or meaningful.
NERDC has now provided us with the capability to change userid's locally.
Accounts issued since April 1 have been addressed using a. convention of
three letters of the first name and four of the last. For example, Jorge Gonza-
lez's e-mail address is JORGONZ. The convention has the advantage of being
memorable and predictable. These new accounts may be used for off-site
communications through the BITNET network as well as for local e-mail.
Previously issued "@" accounts will be converted to the new style over the
next several months. If you need BITNET access right away, inform Systems
and we will give such requests priority. Conversions will be done once a
month and the changed addresses listed in the Library Newsletter. Staff will be
responsible for updating their own online NAMES file and their copy of the
printed e-mail directory. Remember, at the point the address is changed, the
old one will no longer work, and there is no "forwarding" function for e-mail
addresses. Addresses will be changed according to the convention unless re-
quested otherwise. You will be notified in advance of when the change to
your e-mail account will occur.
