Report o f the Law Librarian I 968- I 969 July 15 , 1969

The o v e r a ll accomplishments o f the Law Library during the year have been qu ite good despite the fa c t that i t began with many new personnel. Two o f the new personnel were in important supervisory p o sition s. Mr. F e lip e Pacheco assumed the p o sitio n o f A ssistan t Law Librarian fo r Technical Processes.

He has made substantial progress in the

improvement o f the organization and procedures o f the A cqu isition Department. Miss Marie Whited, with on asked to beco.. done a fin e

o r i^ . experience as a ca ta log er, was

Ping head o f the Cataloging Department.

She too has

,.d w i l l become the o f f i c i a l head o f the Cataloging

Department on Only 1, 1969.

THE WORK OF THE DEPARTMENTS The s t a t i s t ic a l summary which is attached to th is Report shows that 1^,309 volumes were added during th is year.

This is due not or_

increase in funds, but to the improved procedures o f the Acqui Department noted above. el paa.. t

no an on

A great deal o f sta te and fe d e ra l docum...os,

other sp e cia l m aterials which had not been processed in the ears were added to the c o lle c tio n .


-2-

As reported la s t year, an a d d itio n a l c le rk is s t i l l needed fo r tech n ica l processes.

There s t i l l remains a back lo g o f m a terial to

be processed and i f the c o lle c tio n is to grow there w i l l be even more m aterial to handle in the future. The Cataloging Department, young in experience, performed w ell during the year, covering not only current a cq u isitio n s, but also doing a great deal with r e c la s s ific a t io n .

The sp e cia l a llo c a tio n o f funds

fo r the next three years fo r a R e c la s s ific a tio n Team w i l l be a great help in th is matter and a v i t a l contribu tion to the organ ization o f m aterials in the Law Library. The Reference and C i r c u l a t i o n De fin e job o f providing excel_,

it

ias continued to do a very

.cervices despite the la ck o f a d d itio n a l

The need f o r the two ad d ition a l c le r ic a l assistan ts which

personnel.

has been approved, is grea ter than ever.

The demands upon the Law

Library are grow in g constantly because o f the course on Legal Bibliography taught by th

Law Librarian and the increasing use o f seminars and

problem courses as the method o f le g a l education.

I t is fe r v e n tly hoped

that the money fo r these two p osition s w i l l be a v a ila b le fo r the f is c a l year 1970/19711 BOOK COLLECTION AND FUNDS The very great need fo r a substantial increase in book funds remains. la

There is n ’ t much more that can be added to my statement in

y e a r s rep ort.

I f the C ornell Law School is to maintain i t s

p o s itio n as an outstanding law school, the Law L ib rary must continue to develop not only q u a n tita tiv e ly , but q u a lit a t iv e ly as w e ll.

There are


-3-

many gaps in the c o lle c t io n to be f i l l e d while try in g to develop the c o lle c tio n o f current m aterials to meet the modern needs o f le g a l education.

The scope o f the law is ever widening and th is means a

need fo r even more va ried sources o f m aterials, le g a l and general.

PHYSICAL PLANT In the area o f ph ysical needs o f the Law L ib rary, the need fo r a d d itio n a l shelving is becoming more acute.

For the th ird consecutive

year, there has had to be a substantial s h iftin g o f the c o lle c tio n in the hopes o f fin d in g s u ffic ie n t shelving fo r the current normal increments o f m aterials.

This is an in crea sin gly c o s tly matter and

in te rfe r e s with the need to perform other necessary housekeeping a c t iv it ie s and routines. I t is good to report that the Law School has begun making plans fo r an addition to the present building which would include stacks, classrooms and fa c u lty o ffic e s .

I t is to be hoped that the planning

and eventual construction w i l l go ahead at an increased pace. The plans fo r the in s ta lla tio n o f new lig h t in g in the Reading Room seems to have bogged down.

During the past year more complaints than

ever have been received about the poor lig h t in g .

The in s t a lla t io n o f

the new lig h t in g should begin as quickly as p o ssib le! The in s ta lla tio n o f a ir conditioning fo r the enclosed work rooms was begun during the month o f May.

The work has, as o f July 1, 1969,

not been completed due to a delay in the shipment o f some equipment. I t is to be hoped that th is in s ta lla tio n w i l l be completed before the ••eally hot weather sets in.
