lish to the Library of Congress for 1971-73, will close
the 1972-73 season of literary programs at the Li-
brary with a lecture entitled "The Instant of
Knowing." The program will be presented on Mon-
day, May 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Coolidge Auditorium.
No tickets are required. This lecture will be Mrs.
Jacobsen's final official appearance as Consultant in
Born in Coburg, Canada, she is a resident of Balti-
more, Md., and Whitefield, N.H. Her books of poetry
include For the Unlost (1944), The Human Climate
(1956), and The Animal Inside (1967). She is the
author of numerous articles and reviews appearing

Tuesday and Thursday evening service in the
Music Reading Room will be discontinued as of
June 5. The number of readers using the reading
room in the evenings has not been sufficient to
justify the extended hours. Public service will,
however, continue on Saturdays from 8:30 am. to
5 p.m.

frequently in Commonweal, Kenyon Review, Prairie
Schooner, and Poetry. Mrs. Jacobsen and William R.
Mueller are coauthors of three works of criticism:
The Testament of Samuel Beckett (1964), lonesco &
Genet: Playwrights of Silence (1968), and Samuel
Beckett's Long Saturday: To Wait or Not to Wait,
published in Man in the Modem Theatre (1965),
edited by Nathan Scott. One of her short stories, "A
Walk With Raschid," has recently been published in
Prize Stories of 1973: The O. Henry Awards. This is
Mrs. Jacobsen's fifth story to be included in an
anthology of prize-winners and her third O. Henry
Award story. (Continued on p. 147)

Implementation of the provisions of the Inter-
national Bibliographic Description at the Library of
Congress will be delayed until early 1974. Editorial
revisions of the text of the ISBD will be made at a
convocation of present and prospective users of the
ISBD to be held at Grenoble preceding the meeting of
the International Federation of Library Associations
in August. Once this text is finalized, the draft revi-
sion of Chapter 6 of the Anglo-American Cataloging
Rules will (1)be edited to conform to all acceptable
changes, (2) undergo formal acceptance by the Li-
brary of Congress, the American Library Association,

out revisions). (3) be published by ALA, and (4) be
distributed to all catalogers. After all of this has taken
place, a date will be set for the implementation of the
revised chapter in LC cataloging.
Meanwhile, bibliographic descriptions prepared by
LC catalogers will continue to follow the provisions
of the present Chapter 6 of the AACR, using cus.
tomary punctuation practice. However, ISBD
punctuation appearing in bibliographical descriptions
used in Shared Cataloging entries will be retained
except for entries in English and French where such
punctuation will be converted to AACR/LC punctua-
tion. This exception is made for the purpose of
keeping records appearing in the MARC Distribution
Service in a uniform style of punctuation. ISBD
characteristics other than the special punctuation will
normally be retained.
After the implementation of the provisions of the
ISBD all bibliographic descriptions prepared by LC
catalogers will follow the revised rules. ISBD punctua-
tion will be accepted for French and English Shared
Cataloging entries, and entries derived ifwmlnnatimoah
bibliographies not following the ISBD will be edited
to ISBD punctuation style to facilitate possible future
conversion to machine-readable form.


The Library of Congress recently acquired a book
which had been missing from its collections for more
than 45 years. Robert Boyle, a Bibliography by Thora
Mass (London, 1914) was discovered at a local book
sale by William Matheson, Chief of the Rare Book
Division. Mr. Matheson, noticing the LC perforation
on the title page and on page 99, identified the book
as LC property, brought it for 50 cents, and returned
it to the Library's collection. Another more recent
item was acquired by Mr. Matheson under similar
circumstances, with the bookplate and label intact,
for 25 cents.
Both items were listed as "missing" during an
inventory of printed books in the classed collection
of the Library which was begun more than 45 years
ago. The inventory was undertaken to determine the
number of "books not in their assigned places in the
general collection." Completed in 1939, the inven-
tory reported that after a number of shelf checks had
been made, 133,000 inventory cards representing
"missing" books were on file.
Libraries imposing overdue fines have occasional
"free weeks" when fines are forgiven and overdue
books can be returned without threat of penalty.
Since the Library of Congress imposes no fines, every
week is "free week" and books which have been
borrowed regularly, or irregularly, are welcomed by
the Loan Division.


On Friday evening, May 4, the McKim Fund in the
Library of Congress will sponsor a concert of cham-
ber music for violin and piano, performed by Rafael
Druian and Ilse von Alpenheim. They will present the
premiere performance of Sonata for violin and piano,
No. 2 by Benjamin Lees which was commissioned by
the McKim Fund. This work is the sixth McKim Fund
commission to be performed. Other works on the
program are Sonata by Leos Janicek and Sonata in C
minor, Op. 30, No. 2 by Ludwig van Beethoven.
The concert will begin promptly at 8:30 p.m. in the
Coolidge Auditorium of the Library. Tickets will be
disibutedbly ijck Hayes, 1300 G Street, N.W.,
beginning at 8:30 a.m., Monday, April 30. A service
charge of 25 cents is placed on each ticket, and only
two tickets are distributed to an individual. Tele-

April 27, 1973

phone reservations may be made on Monday morning
by calling 393-4463. Mail orders are not accepted.
The concert will be broadcast in its entirety by
station WETA-FM (90.9), and made available to sta-

Louchheim Fund in the Library of Congress.

Another of her short stories, "On the Island," will
soon be published in The Poet's Story, edited by
Howard Moss. New & Selected Poems, her most re-
cent work, is to be published by Doubleday in 1974.
When she returns to private life, Mrs. Jacobsen plans
to devote most of her time to writing.
In the Washington, D.C. area, the program will be
broadcast by radio station WGMS-AM (570) and FM
(105.5) on Saturday, May 19, at 10:30 p.m.

Kimball, Jr. Available free upon request from Library
of Congress, Union Catalog Reference Unit, Wash-
ington, D.C. 20540, Attention: NUC: RRS.
Prepared for users of the National Union Catalog
reference service, the manual is divided into six sec-
tions which provide general information about the
NUC in card and book form. Information included in
the six sections pertains to: (1) various related
publications; (2) revised and expanded instructions
for submitting reference and location requests to the
Union Catalog Reference Unit (UCRU) by mail and
by TWX, including details on the Weekly Listof Un-
located Research Books; (3) a list of standard sources
to be checked in verifying bibliographic citations;
(4) a partial list of institutions that own the NUC:
Pre-1956 Imprints; (5) procedures for obtaining dis-
sertations and theses, copies of National Archives
holdings, National Technical Information Service
materials, translations'of foreign publications, and
U.S. Government publications; and (6) an acronym/
short-title list of the standard sources of verification.
Some significant changes have been made in the
procedures to be followed by libraries seeking infor-
mation from UCRU. Inquirers who do not own the
NUC: Pre-1956 Imprints must from now on forward
their requests for materials, within the scope of its
published volumes, to a designated State or regional
center before submitting them to UCRU. Requests
for locations will no longer be accepted on inter-
library loan forms. Library of Congress standard form
LC 74-68, "Request for Locations of Title," is avail-
able from the same address as the manual (see above)
and must be used when submitting requests by mail.
One hundred and fourteen standard sources of biblio-
graphic verification covering all types of library
materials and six sources of materials are cited on the
reverse of the new form. Requests for information
must show that appropriate, locally available sources
of verification have been checked. The format for
requesting locations by TWX has been altered
slightly, making it necessary to submit each inquiry as

a separate message headed by the requesting institu-
tion's complete mailing address, TWX number, and
"turn-around" acronym.
Designed to improve the NUC reference service,
these changes are being put into effect immediately.
There will be a period of changeover, however, and
requests not meeting the new requirements will not
be returned at the outset.

Several recent issues of the Chung wen hsin tseng
shu chi mu lu (The Catalog of Newly Acquired Chi-
nese Books), published by the University Library of
the Chinese University of Hong Kong, have been
received by the Library. This monthly publication
contains Chinese titles reproduced from the printed
catalog cards of the University Library. The latest
issue, January 1973, contains about 600 current and
retrospective (pre-1972) titles published in Hong
Kong, Taiwan, and the People's Republic of China.
The catalog cards are arranged alphabetically (10
cards per page) according to the Library of Congress
Subject Classification.
The libraries of the Chinese University of Hong
Kong adopted the LC cataloging rules for Western
works in 1969; subsequently, with some financial

assistance from the Asia Foundation, LC cataloging
rules for Chinese publications were also adopted in
August 1971. This Library was probably the first
academic library in East Asia to adopt LC cataloging
rules for Chinese publications. The catalog not only
contains Chinese titles cataloged by the University
Library each month, but also serves as a useful guide
for the acquisition to Chinese materials, since Hong
Kong is one of the major sources for Chinese publica-
The Chinese University of Hong Kong was estab-
lished in 1963, and has become one of the leading
universities in Asia. The new University Library build-
ing with up-to-date library equipment and facilities
was completed late last year. In 1972, the estimated
size of collections in the University Library and the
three constituent college libraries (Chung Chi College,
New Asia College, and the United College), was more
than 400,000 volumes. The University Library has a
very strong collection of Chinese works with more
than 500 rare Chinese books. A copy of this catalog is
available for examination in the Orientalia Division.
Further information on the catalog may be ob-
tained from the Cataloging Department of the Univer-
sity Library, the Chinese University of Hong Kong,
Shatin, N. T. Hong Kong. [Chi Wang]
The first publication of the Documentation Centre,
Centre for Economic Development and Administra-
tion, Tribhuvan University, Nepal, recently arrived in
the Library of Congress. Its Occasional Bibliography,
No. 1, entitled Nepal Documentation, is the first
recording of progress toward its objective "to collect
all published and unpublished materials on Nepal
related to political, social, cultural and economic
aspects of the country and its development." Al-
though its emphasis is on books and periodical litera-
ture generated within Nepal, Nepal Documentation
also contains selected entries for materials related to
Nepal published elsewhere. It includes an English
section, a Nepali section, a subject index, news notes
on current research on Nepal, and a brief list of
bibliographies related to Nepalese studies.
This new venture should be warmly welcomed by
all who have been concerned with the lack of ade-
quate bibliographic controls over information about
Nepal and Nepalese studies. [Louis A. Jacob]
The first issue of Anuario L/L, published in 1970
by the Institute de Literatura y Linguistica of the
Academia de Ciencias de Cuba (Institute of Literature
and Linguistics of the Cuban Academy of Sciences),
is now being processed and will soon be available in
the general collections.

With the recent publication of its fourth volume, A
Catalog of Files and Microfilm of the German Foreign
Ministry Archives 1920-1945 (4 vols. Stanford,
Hoover Institution Press, 1962-72. CD1261.A65) has
been completed. This guide analyzes some 300 tons
of records discovered by U.S. and British troops in
Germany in 1945. These files constitute the bulk of
the German Foreign Office archives of the post-World
War I period and are now in the custody of the Fed-
cial Republic of Germany. This work is particularly
useful as it identifies those records that were screened
and microfilmed under Allied auspices, thus also serv-
ing as an index to some three million frames of film.
The catalog was prepared by George O. Kent of the
University of Maryland under the auspices of the U.S.
Department of State and the Hoover Institution.
