During May the Library of Congress will join with
Federal agencies in the 1973 Savings Bonds Campaign
"Take Stock in America '73." The Campaign will be
conducted in the Library under the direction of 1973
Campaign Chairman Paul E. Edlund, Chief of the
Card Division. Mr. Edlund will be assisted by Depart-
ment Chairpersons Susan Aramayo (Processing), John
Beglin (Copynght), William Dodge (Reference), Asa
Hardison (CRS), Barbara Sakamoto (Office of the Li-
brarian), Norman Shaffer (Administrative), and
Virgiliu Stoicoiu (Law Library).
Within the next few weeks all staff members will
have an opportunity to participate in the program on
a voluntary basis. Each person will be contacted by a
keyworker in his department, who will explain the
importance of the bonds program, and assist in plan-
ning savings programs and completing appropriate
authorization forms.
The goals of the "Take Stock in America '73" Cam-
paign are to increase the number of Library employ-
ees taking advantage of bond purchases as a means of
savings, invite all present buyers to increase their sav-
ings, and call attention to the interest rate of 5 1/2
percent for Series E Bonds when held to maturity and
the tax advantages of Savings Bonds purchases over
other forms of systematic savings.

"Panoramic Maps of U.S. Cities," an exhibit of 60
maps, or "bird's eye" views, of American cities as
they appeared in the post-Civil War period, is on dis-
play at the Geography and Map Division, 845 S.
Pickett St., Alexandria, Va., through June 30. The
maps were selected from over 1,100 examples in the
Division's collections.
The panoramic map was a popular wall decoration
and advertising medium employed after the Civil War
and its popularity continued until 1930. The map was
a lithographic representation of a city as if it were
viewed from above at an oblique angle. Street pat-
terns, buildings, modes of transportation, and human
activity were presented in the urban panorama.
The exhibit highlights the works of the two major
panoramic map makers, Albert Ruger and Thaddeus
M. Fowler. The maps demonstrate the manner in
which mining, port, industrial, and small and large
towns were illustrated, as well as the commercial uses
of the urban panorama.
In conjunction with the exhibit, the Division is
making available reprints of the article "Panoramic
Maps of American Cities," written by John Hebert,
Reference Librarian, for the December 1972 issue of
Special Libraries. The article furnishes information on
America's panoramic map craze from 1866 to 1930.

fit of the patrons." The Librarian

appreciation to Mr. Bray for his

Canadian Cataloging Standards Report Issued
The National Library of Canada has published Cata-
loguing Standards: the Report of the Canadian Task
Group on Cataloguing Standards, available from
Information Canada, 171 Slater St., Ottawa, at $3
Canadian. The task group was set up "to study and
identify present deficiencies in the organizing and
processing of Canadian material, and the cataloguing
problems of Canadian libraries, and to make recom-
mendations for improvements." The report consists
of 58 recommendations made by the task group to
the National Librarian of Canada, the rationale be-
hind each recommendation, and a suggested program
for implementation. The series of recommendations is
divided into five categories: standardization of entry
and bibliographic description, classification of
Canadian history and literature, Canadian lists of sub-
ject headings, processing of government documents,
and processing of serials.
Of special interest to American librarians are the
recommendations that: the Anglo-American Cata-

loging Rules (North American text) continue to be
accepted; Canadian libraries abandon superimposition
and LC be urged to abandon it; the National Library
explore the possibility of a Canadian Cataloging in
Publication program; the National Library supervise,
for Canadian use, revisions of the sections of the LC
classification schedules dealing with Canadian history
and literature; the Library of Congress be asked to
consider delegating to a team of Canadian experts the
development of the classification for Canadian law;
the National Library continue to accept the LC list of
subject headings, with Canadian development of
headings for Canadian topics not well covered in the
LC list; the National Library and the National Science
Library jointly establish a machine-readable serials
data base; and the National Library develop a
cooperative indexing and abstracting program for
Canadian serials.

March Illinois Libraries Carries UN Workshop Report
A report on the United Nations Documents Work-
shop held in Chicago on October 20, 1972, appears in
the March issue of Illinois Libraries. Guest editor of
the special 117-page issue was Geneva Finn, Chairman
of the Workshop and Head of the Documents/Serials
Branch of the Illinois State Library in Springfield.
The issue contains papers presented at the work-
shop, a summary of the speeches and discussions, and
other items relating to UN materials. Among the
papers are "The Computer-Assisted Indexing Program
of the United Nations," by Giuseppe Martini, Chief
of the Documentation Division of the Dag Ham-
marskjold Library; and papers on UN documents in
microform and on research in the UN archives by
Doris Cruger Dale of the Southern Illinois University
Library in Carbondale. Although several papers re-
late to experience with UN documents in Illinois
libraries, they should be of interest to librarians con-
cerned with UN documentation.
The issue also includes reports presented at
UNITAR's International Symposium on Documenta-
tion of the United Nations and Other Inter-
governmental Organizations which was held in
Geneva in August 1972. Patricia Coatsworth, Docu-
ments Librarian of the University of Chicago, has
written an analytical account of the symposium. Two
UN staff members, Elisabeth Nebehay and Omneya
Foz, have collaborated on the paper, "United Nations
Publications Outside Regular Distribution."
Among other items in the issue is a seven-page
bibliography entitled "UN: A Selected List of Pub-
lications," and "Principles Governing United Nations
