WESTERN FOREST INFORMATION NETWORK
The Western Forest Research Information Network
(WESTFORNET) became operational on May 8 for
the U.S. Forest Service employees, authorized collab-
orators, and cooperating Federal and State Agencies
in seventeen western states. An expansion of PAC-
FORNET (formerly CALFORNET), WESTFORNET
is a library-based information network which provides
specialized technical information services in the area
of forestry and related disciplines. The four basic
services offered are: current literature announcement
service, general document delivery service, reference
and referral service, and computer based literature
The current literature announcement service is pro-
vided through the MONTHLY ALERT, a computer-
printed list of some 200 citations of nonjoumal
publications which have been carefully selected from
a wide range of literature relevant to forestry and
wildlands management. The items announced include
such materials as conference papers, symposia, theses,
trade books, research papers, technical reports, en-
vironmental impact statements, legislative hearings,
bills, and new laws. Only journal articles of general
interest are included since that type of material can
be located in other current awareness media. The
ALERT is arranged into some 14 subject categories
for easy scanning and includes a species and subject
index. Each issue becomes part of the master data
base which represents the holdings of the participating
libraries: the four Western Experiment Station libraries,
the University of California Library at Berkeley, and
the University of Washington Library. This base can
be searched via a computer terminal for subjects,
authors, or titles. Both hard-copy and microfiche
library catalogs can be produced from it.
Users desiring copies of the publications cited in the
ALERT may request them from the designated serv-
ice centers: Pacific Southwest Forest & Range Experi-
ment Station Library at Berkeley, Calif; the Inter-
mountain Forest & Range Experiment Station Library
at Ogden, Utah; the Rocky Mountain Forest & Range
Experiment Station Library at Ft. Collins, Colo.; and
the University of Washington Library at Seattle.
Arrangements for general document delivery service
have been made through three land grant university
libraries which are participating in the USDA Regional
Document Delivery System sponsored by Technical
Information Systems (formerly National Agricultural
Library (NAL). They are: the University of Idaho
Library, Utah State University Library, and the Science
and Engineering Library at the University of Washing-

POULTRY INDUSTRY HALL OF FAME
The American Poultry Historial Society has named
five new members to the Poultry Industry Hall of
Fame. The nominations were made September 28,
1977 during the 48th Fact Find Conference at the
H. Rol Bartle Convention Center, Kansas City,
Missouri. Portraits of the new honorees have
recently been received for hanging in the Poultry
Hall of Fame at the National Agricultural Library
Building, Beltsville, MD. This award honors and
recognizes persons for outstanding achievement or
leadership in the industry.
JAMES M. GWIN. A vital force in the training
programs for industry, government and consumer
circles for more than 40 years. His collection of
books and other literature on poultry was presented
to the National Agricultural Ubrary in 1972.
R. GEORGE JAAP. Has had a long and distinguished
career in the field of genetics and poultry breeding.
He has been particularly active in the Poultry Science
Association and the World's Poultry Science Asso-
BENJAMIN S. POMEROY. Has enjoyed a lifetime
career of teaching and research in microbiology and
poultry disease and has served as advisor to more
than 100 graduate degree candidates.

ton. WESTFORNET users have been instructed to sub-
mil their requests on Form AD-245 to the nearest land
grant library in their State or region.
The two service centers at Berkeley and Seattle provide
computer based literature searching through access to
dozens of commercial bibliographic data bases in addi-
tion to specialized data bases created by the U.S. For-
est Service, such as FIREBASE. Upon receiving a
print-out of publications found in the search, the users
may request desiderata through the general document
The reference and referral service is an important serv-
ice which may yield an answer to a daily question
which cannot be found in the literature. WESTFOR-
NET can put both foresters and researchers in touch
with experts who can help them with a problem. The
last two services listed are scheduled for implementa-
tion at the Ogden and Ft. Collins service centers in

LATIN AMERICAN RESEARCH
Robert Sickles, Biological Sciences and Agricultural Biblio-
grapher at the Iowa State University Library (ISU). reports
that Iowa State's interest and involvement in world agri-
culture continues to expand. In 1977, the Economics
Department received a $369,000 grant as one of two uni-
versity departments in the U.S. to perform research for
the Agency for International Development. The purpose
of the research is to encourage development of agri-
culture in Latin American countries through: designing
training courses and offering materials to help the de-
veloping countries improve the training of their economic
policy and planning analysis; evaluation of the existing
economic planning and policy institutions and systems
in 23 Latin American countries; organizing workshops
and conferences in Latin America to help the policy and
planning analysts exchange experiences and information.
ISU and Michigan State will be working with the Inter-
american Institute of Agricultural Sciences (IICA) in
San Jose, Costa Rica. Dr. Lehman Fletcher and Dr. Hylke
Van de Wetering, economists at ISU, have been chosen to
work in Latin America on the three-year AID project.
In addition to this, ISU and the University of Costa Rica
signed an agreement to exchange staff and scientific in-
formation between the schools of agriculture. Under the
plan, Iowa State University faculty members from various
departments in the College of Agriculture will be sent to
Costa Rica for three-month tours of duty during the next
five years. Fourteen to twenty Costa Ricans will visit ISU
during the same time period: The University of Costa Rica,
that nation's major agricultural college, has substantial
experience in the plant, animal and social sciences. The
major thrust of this project is the improved transfer of
technology and research knowledge from the universities
to the small and medium-sized farmer in Costa Rica.
MIDAMERICA INTERNATIONAL CONSORT. JM,INC.
In August, 1977, four universities joined to form the
MIDAMERICA INTERNATIONAL CONSORTIUM,
Inc. (MIAC). Membership is composed of Iowa State
University, Kansas State University, the University of
Missouri and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
MIAC is organized to provide the combination of re-
sources of its participating universities to better assist
in solving world food problems by helping others feed
themselves. The experiences gained through this serv-
ice outreach contribute to faculty understanding of
world agricultural problems and thiius contributing in
many ways to the at-home teaching and research pro-
MIAC institutions represent a large body of recognized
agricultural scientists with technological competence
ranging from dry-land and irrigation agriculture to the
central corn bell.
The physical and biological sciences at these instituuons
have a strong undergirding of the economic, social
sciences and human nutrition areas.
Although the MIDAMERICA INTERNATIONAL
AGRICULTURAL CONSORTIUM is a very new or-
ganization. it has been able to build on the interna-
tional experience of its member institutions, and the
complementarity in its areas of strength.
Project experiences have been provided in Afghanistan,
Morocco, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Tunisia.
The longer term experiences of MUCIA (Midwest Uni-
versities Consortium for International Activities, Inc.)
and CID (Center for International Development) have
been most helpful in structuring the operation and pro-
gram direction of MIAC. MIAC concurs with observa-
tions made by MUCIA and CID that the consortium
can be an effective mechanism for providing technical
assistance abroad -and at the same time adds strength
to the participating institution's programs at home.
For further information concerning MIAC, contact: Dr. Marvin
A. Anderson, Executive Director, Midamerica Inrternatonal
Agricultural Consortium, 102 Scheman Building, loa State
University. Ames, Iowa, 50011 (515) 294-6222.

AN UPDATING SHORTCOURSE ON
INFORMATION SOURCES FOR COLLEGE FACULTY
Although a variety of techniques have been used to ac-
quaint university and college faculty with computer
searches, actual demonstrations are frequently necessary
before faculty full understand the process and capabili-
ties of online searches. In an effort to educate faculty
about some newer information sources as well as com-
puter base searches, shortcourse sessions were recently
held at the University of Arizona for College of Agri-
culture faculty. Three sessions were held: one for
faculty in crop and animal production, one for faculty
in natural resources, and one for faculty in home eco-
Although specific examples differed from session to
session, the program had the following general content"
*general orientation on sources of computer bases,
types of computer products, access points (how to
get searches from different bases), and costs--25
*highlights of a few multidisciplinary printed
publications (Science Citation Index or Social
Science Citation Index, Monthly Catalog, and
proceeding index)--25 minutes
*retrievals of the Current Research Information
System (CRIS), both project descriptions and
summaries for general trend overviews--20
*demonstration of online searches, showing
AND, OR and BUT NOT commands and ef-
fects of doing same search on different files-
-30 to 40 minutes
If other librarians in land grant universities or those
working with faculty/researchers in agricultural and
natural resource areas have conducted shortcourses
or workshops with a similar orientation, I am inter-
ested in exchanging with them information regarding
their programs and teaching techniques.
A single copy of the 20-page handout manual used
at this shortcourse can be obtained by sending a
self-.addressed label to Linda White.

One of the most common questions coming to us regards
the availability of translations. Technical Information
Systems reviews article titles before translations are made
in order to avoid duplication. We also receive copies on
deposit often far in advance of their listings in the stand-
ard bibliographic tools. Therefore, this column is pub-
lished to alert those interested in knowing about selected
new receipts at 11S.
