July 15, 1966 Report o f the Lev Librarian

1965-66 On November 1, I join ed the University Library as Lew Librarian and with a jo in t appointment as Professor o f Law in the Law School. % immediate attention was d irected to the preparation o f the budget fo r the coming year and t o the administration end organization o f the Law Library. Five addition al p osition s were requested fo r the budget fo r

1966- 6 7 .

These p osition s have been approved and three o f them were

f i l l e d at once by means o f unused personnel funds.

Two or three

ad d ition al p o s itio n s , which were approved in p rin cip les by the U niversity Library adm inistration, w ill be requested in the budget fo r 1967- 68 . The Law Library w ill be organized in to three areas o f operation under the d ire ctio n o f the Law Librarian: and Reference and C ircu lation .

A cqu isition s, Cataloging,

Mr. Goren w ill be in charge o f

A cqu isition s with four a ssista n ts; Mr. Enyingi w ill be in charge o f Cataloging with fiv e a s sista n ts; and Mr. Gersten Rappoport w ill be in charge o f Reference and C irculation on July 1, 1966, and he w ill have fiv e a s s is ta n ts . A sp ecia l study o f the physical aspects o f the Law Library was made by the Lew Librarian,

which w ill take two tar three years, w ill begin during the summer o f 1966. With the encouragement o f the Student A ssocia tion , a Xerox 91U was rented and operator engaged to provide copying service fo r the students. J u s tifie d .

The use o f th is machine has been good end i t s rental There i s every expectation that i t s use by the students

w il l in crease. Another p roject which i s w ell under way i s the physical reorganization o f the Law Library c o lle c tio n within the stacks in order to provide a quicker and more e ff ic ie n t access to the m aterials. I t i s expected t o complete th is task by the end o f the summer. \

During the summer there i s every expectation that the Low Library w ill receive the long-awaited Library o f Congress C la ssifica tio n Scheme fo r Law.

This w ill enable the Lew Library to proceed to a

complete c la s s ific a t io n o f a i l m aterials. The Law Librarian has made a sp ecial e ff o r t to acquaint the U niversity Library s t a f f with the resources and the services av aila ble at the Law Library. As o f June 30, 1965, a t o t a l o f 10,326 volumes had been added, 250 volumes were withdrawn, bringing the t o ta l number o f volumes o f f i c i a l l y in the c o lle c tio n to 193Âť552* There i s every in dication that addition al book funds w ill be needed i f the o b je c tiv e s o f the program o f le g a l education o f the Lav School i s t o be f u l f i l l e d .

An increese w ill be necessary to meet the

r is in g co sts o f pu blications as w ell s s to expend the c o lle c tio n . Attached to th is report is s l i s t o f g i f t s and contribuitcns to the Law Library.

One o f these deserves sp ecia l mention.
