The Chinese and Korean Section of the Orientalia
Division has recently acquired, by purchase from the
Center for Chinese Research Materials of the Associa-
tion of Research Libraries, a set of xerographic
reproductions of Chinese Red Guard materials. Some
of the items from which these reproductions were
made are handwritten, but most are printed or type-
written. The reproduced loose sheets are handsomely
bound in buckram into 30 oversize volumes tooled in
The Red Guard materials consist of newspapers,
handbills, serial issues, monographs, and leaflets and
embody primary sources of information of the period
of the Great Cultural Revolution of 1966-1970 that
were made available to the Center on microfilm from
which the separate sheets were reproduced. They are
invaluable for the study of and research in this seg-
ment of Chinese history. Insofar as is known, this is
the only bound set in existence. The Center for
Chinese Research Materials has distributed the items
individually, or as a set, but not previously in bound
form. Countless man-hours were expended in assem-
bling the set, which has the advantage of greater
permanence and more convenient usability than the
individual items treated separately.
Assigned the English title Red Guard Publications
by the CCRM, the set will be available to readers in
the Chinese and Korean Section after it is cataloged.

On Friday evening, December 1, the Elizabeth
Sprague Coolidge Foundation in the Library of Con-
gress will sponsor a concert of chamber music
featuring the Yuval Trio. The members of this ensem-
ble are Uri Pianka, violin; Simca Heled, violoncello;
and Jonathan Zak, piano. Their program will include
Trio in F sharp minor, H. XV:26 by Joseph Haydn;
Trio in F minor, Op. 65 by Antonin Dvo'rik; and
Trio No. 2 in C minor, Op. 66 by Felix Mendelssohn.
This will be the ensemble's second appearance at the
Library. The Trio was organized in 1968.
The concert will begin promptly at 8:30 p.m. in the
Coolidge Auditorium. Tickets for this concert will be
distributed by Patrick Hayes, 1300 G St., N.W.,
beginning at 8:30 a.m., Monday, November 27. A
service charge of 25 cents is placed on each ticket,
and only two tickets are distributed to an individual.
Telephone reservations may be made on Monday

On October 25, President Nixon signed the joint
resolution extending the duration of copyright pro-
tection in certain cases until December 31, 1974.
The measure provides for the automatic extension
until December 31, 1974, of copyrights in their
renewal term that would otherwise have expired
before that date. Seven earlier Acts of Congress (P.L.
87-668, P.L. 89-142, P.L. 90-141, P.L. 90-416, P.L.
91-147, P.L. 91-555, and P.L. 92-170) had extended
until December 31, 1972, second term copyrights
which would have expired between September 19,
1962, and December 31, 1972. Under the new law,

P.L. 92-566, protection for those copyrights is auto-
matically extended further to December 31, 1974.
Second term copyrights that would otherwise expire
any time during 1973 and 1974 are also extended
until December 31, 1974.
This extension does not apply to copyrights in their
first term. Therefore, it has no effect on the time
limits for renewal registration, which must be made
during the last year of the original 28-year term. Also,
it does not revive any copyrights that have already


A major publisher of books and periodicals in the
medical and allied sciences, The Williams & Wilkins
Co. of Baltimore, Md., has adopted a new policy
regarding photocopying by libraries of copyrighted
articles in the journals it publishes. The new policy,
announced on October 2, is one of the latest develop-
ments in the controversy over photocopying as it
relates to alleged copyright infringement that arose
prior to the and following the official report filed on
February 16 by Commissioner James F. Davis with
the U.S. Court of Claims in the case of The Williams
& Wilkins Co. v. United States (Ct. Cl., No. 73-68).
[See earlier story in the Information Bulletin. March
The Baltimore publisher announced continuation
of its increased institutional subscription rates for
libraries that do not include or imply payment of a
fee for institutional licenses to photocopy. At the
same time, the company withdrew, pending disposi-
tion of the case on appeal, a proposal it made subse-
quent to the February 16 report of Commissioner
Davis for the payment of a five-cents-per-page inter-
library loan fee for the photocopying of articles from
its journals.
Claiming that Commissioner Davis' February 16
report and ruling has the full weight and force of law
until reversed, The Williams & Wilkins Co. earlier had
announced a plan to implement the ruling. The plan
called for an increased institutional subscription rate
that included a reproduction license. Under the plan,
holders of licenses would have rights to unlimited
single-copy reproduction of articles in the Company's
journals that carry an institutional rate. In addition,
the plan called for libraries to collect from patrons,
for the Company, a five-cents-per-page fee for inter-
library loan reproductions.


November 24. 1972

The Company's plan encountered a generally ad-
verse reaction and widespread criticism from libraries
and educational institutions. Chief among the objec-
tions were the precedents that would thereby be set
regarding the fair use of copyrighted materials, and
the "burdensome bookkeeping" that would be re-
quired by libraries in implementing the plan.
As defendant in the original case brought before
the Court of Claims, the National Library of Medicine
(NLM) of the U.S. Department of Health, Education,
and Welfare refused to renew its subscriptions to the
Company's journals under conditions implying or
requiring license or royalty for photocopying. The
NLM's reaction prompted the Company's reversal of
policy. In the appeal of the case brought by the
defendant before the full Court of Claims, a number
of amicus curiae briefs have been filed by education,
research, and scholarly associations in support of the
defendant. Among these are the National Education
Association and the American Library Association. A
third amicus brief on the defendant's position has
been filed by the Association of Research Libraries
on behalf of itself and the following associated
groups: Medical Library Association; American
Association of Law Libraries; American Medical Asso-
ciation: American Dental Association; Mayo Founda-
tion; Robert H. Ebert. M.D., as Dean of the Faculty
of Medicine, Harvard University; the University of
Michigan Medical School; the University of Roch-

ester, School of Medicine and Dentistry; American
Sociological Association; Modern Language Associa-
tion of America; and History of Science Society.
Among the briefs filed in support of Commissioner
Davis' position are two filed jointly by the Associa-
tion of American Publishers and the Association of
American University Presses and one filed by the
Authors League of America, Inc.

in The Survival Handbook (New York, Winchester
Press, 1972. 312 p. SK606.M47), William K. Merrill
describes in detail methods of dealing successfully
with a wide variety of emergencies in the remote out-

doors. Instruction is provided in using a compass,
signaling, building shelters and fires (with or without
matches), finding food, and applying first aid for
survival on land and sea, in extreme heat and cold,
and in clement and inclement weather. Merrill's work
is fully indexed and is generously illustrated with his
own instructive drawings. A copy is available for
reference in the Main Reading Room.

Acton, Alan LeMond, and Parker Hodges (New York,
World, 1972. 274 p. CT220.A27 1972), is a new addi-
tion to the biography collection of the Main Reading
Room. According to the authors, "this book is an
introduction to over 200 individuals in the alternate
culture. They are groupies, poets, revolutionaries,
writers, cartoonists, educators, and freaks. And they
tell over 200 stories of their view of a changing
America." Some political and artistic groups are also
identified. Photographs by Raeanne Rubenstein are
included for many of the biographies.

NCLIS Awards First Contracts for Studies
The National Commission on Libraries and Infor-
mation Science has awarded its first four contracts,
totaling $52,000 for fiscal year 1972, for studies of
library service in the United States on all levels.
The contracts are for: preliminary investigation of
present and potential library and information service
needs contracted to the University of California at
Berkeley; an analysis of social, economic, and techni-
cal requirements for libraries and information services

from 1975-1980, contracted to Edwin Parker, Profes-
sor for Communication Research at Stanford Univer-
sity; a study of funding sources for public libraries to
be handled by the Public Administration Service,
Chicago; and a feasibility study of centralized and
regionalized interlibrary loan centers to be done
through the Association of Research Libraries, Wash-
ington, D.C.
The study for investigation of present and potential
library and information service needs will be directed
by Charles Bourne, Director of the Institute of
Library Research and Professor of the School of
Librarianship at the University of California. The
comprehensive working paper will assist the Commis-
sion in establishing its priorities for developing na-
tional planning for library and informational needs as
charged by law. The study will identify needs for
services on the part of various publics and describe
how the library and information community can best
serve those needs. The study will explore the litera-
ture relating to the objectives and specifications for
post-1975 library services and survey and assess plan-
ning, methodology, and techniques that could be
helpful. It will also provide preliminary identification
and formulation of tentative specifications for such
The Parker study will identify the impact of social-
economic factors and advances in communications
and information technology from 1975 to 1980 on
the library and information needs of information
users. The report will be available to the Commission
on January 1, 1973.
The Public Administration Service report will inves-
tigate the full scope of financial resources available to
public libraries. Although much is known about how
funds are spent by public libraries and library systems
in the United States, little is known about the sources
of funds. This study will let public libraries see where
and how additional funds could be made available.
The ARL feasibility study of centralized and
regionalized inter-library loan centers will review cur-
rent literature on the subject, estimate the future
demand for inter-library loans, prepare an outline of
methodology for a cost study of initial development
of central and regional lending centers, and establish a
professional committee to review recommendations
and to prepare a report to be submitted to the Com-
mission as a working paper by the end of March
