Personnel

Dr. Emerson Jacobbecame Librarian of the Newark Campus of Rutgers University on November 1. He had served, since 1965, as College Librarian at State University College, Fredonia, New York and prior to that in the headships at California State Polytechnic College and Baldwin Wallace College and as Acquisitions Librarian at Michigan State University 1948-58 and the University of Maryland 1945-48 and as Asst. Librarian of Mount Union College 1943-45. During his tenure at SUNY Fredonia the collection grew from 76,000 to 150,000 volumes and a substantial growth of resources and facilities ensued. He was active in the affairs of SUNY head librarians serving on various assignments, one of which had to do with academic status for SUNY librarians, and he was also a trustee and founding member of the Western New York Library Resources Council.

Dr. Jacob

A graduate of Mount Union College in 1939, Dr. Jacob received his BSLS from Western Reserve in 1942, an MA in history from Columbia in 1951, and his PhD in history from Western Reserve University in 1961. His dissertation entitled: Disraeli’s Social Reforms, 1874-1880 reflected his interest in Victorian and nineteenth-century England and this interest is further brought to bear in undergraduate history teaching—an assignment he has assumed beyond his library administrative duties. In addition to his interest in historical scholarship Dr. Jacob has contributed journal articles dealing with acquisitions and collection building, has done ALA committee work and has been a member of the Association since 1942. His subsidiary interests and hobbies include: politics and foreign affairs; golf (mid-80’s); pro football (spectator only); and chess.

At Rutgers-Newark Dr. Jacob will be administering a library program at an urban institution which is on the threshold of considerable expansion and development. His substantial previous experience should stand him in good stead and it is safe to assume that the Library of the Newark Campus of Rutgers will have resourceful and imaginative leadership in the period ahead.—Douglas Swartout, State University College, Fredonia, New York

StanleyL. West became Director of the University of Hawaii Libraries July 1, 1968. He had been Professor of Library Studies at Hawaii’s Graduate School of Library Studies during 1967-1968 and before that Director of Libraries and Head of the Department of Library Science at the University of Florida, Gainesville, for some twenty years.

Mr. West

A native of California, Dr. West has had a longstanding interest in Asia and the Pacific dating back to an undergraduate major in International Relations of the Far East at the University of California and an extensive tour of duty in the Pacific as a U.S. Navy Lieutenant in World War II. His formal education includes an AB from California, 1933; graduate work in public administration at California from 1933-1934; legal study at the University of Florida, LLB, 1938, JD 1968; and the BS in LS from Columbia in 1942. Following an initial career as law librarian at the University of Florida from 1938-1940 and at the University of Pittsburgh from 1940-1942, Dr. West had the good fortune to serve for a short time as administrative assistant to Charles C. Williamson, then Director of Columbia University Libraries. Williamson, one of the best of the university and research librarians of the first half of this century, treated the position of administrative assistant as a training position, and after a few months of demonstrating his capabilities West was given increasing responsibility for handling the administration of a complex university library. Following his years with the Navy, West returned to Columbia for a brief period as Associate Law Librarian. In 1946 he returned to Florida as Director of University Libraries, where his training under Williamson stood him in good stead for in his twenty years there Stan West developed the University of Florida libraries from weakness to significant strength in staff, collections and physical plant. The membership of Florida in the Association of Research Libraries, the new research library building dedicated in April 1967 and the book collections numbering 1,200,000 volumes all stand as tributes to West’s steady hand and ability to secure adequate resources and support from the university administration.

Stan West has been a founding father and moving spirit in a number of important library organizations, among them the Association of Southeast Research Libraries of which he was Chairman in 1959-1960 and the Seminars on the Acquisition of Latin American Library materials. He has served as Chairman of the ACRL Committee on Constitution and By Laws, 1956, of the Nominating Committee 1958-1959, and of the Advisory Committee on Cooperation with Educational and Professional Organizations 1963-1966. He was also Chairman of the ALA Board on Resources Subcommittee on Resources of Southern Libraries in 1950 and 1956 and Chairman of ARL Farmington Plan Subcommittee on Latin American Reserves, 1959-1966.

Dr. West served as consultant to the Hispanic Foundation of the Library of Congress from 1964-1965 and was a Fulbright lecturer in Rome in Spring 1957. During his Fulbright year and again in 1967, West visited monasteries in Italy and elsewhere in Europe in keeping with his interest in the 8th and 9th century renaissance of Western culture, a subject in which he has an intense interest and about which he hopes one day to complete a book.

All of this adds up to a wealth of experience particularly useful to the University of Hawaii at the present stage in its growth. West now takes over from Dr. Ralph R. Shaw, who has become a full-time professor of library studies, a library system with a new graduate research library building, a project to convert to LC classification in its terminal stages and greatly expanded staff and book budget. West is the man to consolidate these gains and move ahead with plans for an already needed annex to the new building and for development of the collections and services to a university campus destined to grow to 25,000 students in the next few years.

Stan West, the sailor come home from the sea, and his wife Caroline (Dee), who combines a Southern warmth and charm with a keen mind, are building a home on the side of the mountain behind the University, a site from which they can observe daily rainbows, the campus of the University where the concrete never sets and the surf at Ala Moana, the backdrop for the most magnificent sunsets in the world.—Robert Stevens, University of Hawaii

There are two ways to keep abreast of the 20,000 new English Language books that come out each year.

The old way: Read tens of thousands of listings and ads. The new way: Use the unique Books-Coming-Into-Print Service from Bro-Dart’s Stacey’s Division.

Books-Coming-Into-Print is a computeroperated advance notification and acquisition program which allows your library to profile its needs in specific disciplines. It gives you notification, continuations, and automatic shipment of books on approval.

This is much more than an approval program.

Our Stacey’s Division, the nation’s leading academic bookseller, will classify and organize over 20,000 titles a year of interest to your library.

Then there’s the matter of our computer and the Thesaurus we provide you with. By using our Thesaurus and your specifications you pin point the exact type of books you’ll be interested in, regardless of how broad or narrow your areas of special interest or the academic level desired. By carefully profiling your needs, you’ll be receiving books or information about only those publications that would be of special interest to your library. That’s the advantage of dealing with a computer.

The Books-Coming-Into-Print Program will provide you with an advance notice card prior to publication for each title which fits your profile. If you, for any reason, don’t want the book, all you have to do is return the computerized card. And we won’t send you the book. If, on publication, the book is not appropriate to your profile, you will receive a rejection notice with explanation. Of course, all shipments are “on approval.”

Remember, you’ll be dealing with one source for books from all publishers. The Books-Coming-Into-Print Program applies to all English language books, continuations, and monographs by commercial and non-commercial publishers. In the humanities. Or the sciences.

Then, since you’ll be dealing with Bro- Dart, you’ll have the option of getting your books with a full variety of supplemental cataloging and processing services.

Since you’ll be given advance notice about each new book, the system is compatible with your present way of ordering monographs and continuations.

And what you’ll have is an "on order" file which your library can use for ordering, reference, or cancellations.

Naturally, your library will receive competitive discounts. Rapid service. And accurate selections.

Much easier than reading all those ads and listings.
