Nancy E. Gwinn, Librarian, Congressional Refer-
ence Centers, CRS, is the author of an article entitled
"Information for Congress: A Special Kind of Public"
in the February issue of Special Libraries. An over-
view of the operation of CRS is provided, with special
emphasis on the role of the librarian within the ser-
vice. The article provides details of the services
offered to Congress by the Library Services and

Congressional Reference Divisions of CRS and high-
lights the operations of the new Congressional
Reference Centers in the House and Senate office
buildings. The article was first delivered as a lecture
to the University of Michigan School of Lihrary
Science during the 1972 Alumni-in-Residence pro-
Frank M. McGowan, Chief of the Overseas Opera-
tions Division in the Processing Department, is the
author of a dissertation entitled The Association of
Research Libraries, 1932-1962 which was completed
in 1972 at the University of Pittsburgh Library
School. The study is essentially a history of the
ARL's first 30 years, and presents in some detail
information regarding key persons, important pro-
jects, and background on decisions regarding ARL
organization, administration, and membership. In
addition to published literature, papers, and reports
from the Association's files which were made avail-
able to him, Mr. McGowan also recorded information
obtained in personal interviews with former ARL
officers. As a result, the dissertation not only is a
well-written history of ARL but also adds extensive
documentation to ARL archives. A committee of
three ARL members is now investigating the possi-
bility of publication.
Robert C. Sullivan, Chief of the Order Division, is
the author of "Microform Developments Related to
Acquisitions," an article appearing in the January
issue of College and Research Libraries. This article,
which reviews several of the more significant recent
developments in the library microform area and
suggests some basic reference tools, techniques, and
procedures to be employed for the more efficient
acquisition of micropublications, was originally pre-
sented as a paper at the Institute on the Acquisition
of Foreign Materials for U.S. Libraries, held at the
University of Wisconsin School of Library and Infor-
mation Science in April 1971.

As part of its bibliographic program in observance
of the American Revolution Bicentennial, the Library
has published Creating Independence, 1763-1789, an
annotated bibliography of background reading for
young people. Compiled by Margaret N. Coughlan,
Children's Book Section, with an introduction by
Richard B. Morris, Gouverneur Morris Professor of
History, Columbia University, the bibliography serves
as a guide to the selection of materials for young
people on the American Revolutionary War period.
Included under five broad subject headings-"The
Times." "The Rise of Discontent," "The Days of
Revolution," "A Constitution is Born," and "Heroes,
Heroics, and Traditions"-are accurate, well-
documented histories, biographies, and a few histor-
ical novels and fictionalized biographies. For the
interest of able students and teachers, a selection of
biographies, histories, and novels published for adults
has been included among books produced explicitly
for young people. Titles were chosen because they
were factually accurate, logical in organization, clear-
ly written, faithful in depiction of the period and
revolutionary movement, and successful in broaden-
ing the reader's understanding of not only the
American Revolution but of still current problems
such as equal rights and individual freedom. Omitted
are textbooks or other works designed primarily for
the classroom. Interesting examples of contemporary
art illustrating the bibliography were adapted from
paintings, currency, newspapers, and books in the
collections of the Library, and are available in photo-
copy reproductions.

Cedi Hobbs Attends Australian Symposium
on Southeast Asia
Cecil Hobbs, Honorary Consultant in Southeast
Asian Bibliography, and former Head of the Southern
Asia Section of the Orientalia Division, participated
in a Symposium on Southeast Asian Library Re-
sources in Canberra, Australia, on February 23-24.
The symposium, organized and sponsored by the
Australian National University Library, attracted
participants from various universities and centers of
Southeast Asian studies throughout Australia.
Mr. Hobbs, who is currently Visiting Consultant on
Southeast Asia at the Australian National University
Library, was the honored dinner speaker on February
23 and spoke on "Recollections of Southeast Asian
Studies and the Library of Congress." On the follow-
ing day, he presented a paper entitled "A Concept of
a Southeast Asian Reference and Bibliographical
Center" at the session on "Biblograptucal Controls"
chaired by Mollie Thomson, Deputy Librarian,
Macquarie University. [See p. 92 for an announce-
ment of the publication of the Southeast Asia Subject
Catalog, compiled by Mr. Hobbs.]
Other sessions of the symposium. organized under
the leadership of Jean M. Waller, Acting University
Librarian, were: "Southeast Asian Studies and Li-
brary Resources in Australia," chaired by Enid

east Asian Resource Materials." chaired by I. D. Ray-
mond, Librarian, University of Adelaide; and
"Development of Possible Programs for Future
Action," chaired by Harrison Bryan, University Li-
brarian, University of Sydney.
In a recent letter to the Information Office, Mr.
Hobbs made the following comments and observa-

tions concerning his consultantship, the Australian
National Library, and the international iniltience of
the Library of Congress:
Dunng the course of my most interesting activities as Con-
sultant on Southeast Asia Area Studies here at The Austrahan
National University, I am finding the Library quite a contrast
to the Library of Congress. In another way, however, I feel
that I am still at LC because I feel the atmosphere and the
influence of LC on many sides: the various LC publications
being used by the numerous employees in this Library; the
copies of LC cards in the Library card catalog; and they are
now in the process of changing over from the Bhss Classifica-
tion System to the LC Classification, which was started in
As I see the continued and extensive use of the LC Catalog
of Printed Books, LC National Union Catalog, LC National
Union Catalog; Cumulative Author List, New Serial Titles,
and other pubbcations issued by the Processing Department,
it should hearten those who had a hand in the preparation of
these valuable works for the cataloger and others in Australia
who make use of them.
Likewise, those works prepared by various persons within
the Reference Department-A Guide to the Official Publica-
tions of the Other American Republics, Africa, South of the
Sahara, French-speaking West Africa.... Southeast Asia
Subject Catalog, and Far Eastern Languages Catalog-are all
proving most useful to both the library staff and to faculty
and students of The Australian National University.
It causes me to realize once again the influence that the
Library of Congress has in various research centers through-
out the world, especially in those institutions where the LC
classification is being used.
