Brief of Minutes

January 30, 1969

Present: Louise Darling, Chairman; Howard Rovelstad, Vice-Chairman (Chairman Elect); Thomas Gillies, Chairman, Subject Specialists Section; Richard T. Samuelson, Member, 1969/70 Nominating Committee; Anna E. Dougherty, Secretary. Pauline W. Jennings, Immediate Past Chairman was unable to attend due to a death in the family.

The Agriculture and Biological Sciences Subsection Executive Committee held its Midwinter meeting on Thursday, January 30, 1969, from 4:30 until 6:00 p.m. in Club Room C of the Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The Chairman expressed her pleasure in having Mr. Gillies, Section Chairman, present at the meeting. Mr. Samuelson gave the report of the 1969/70 Nominating Committee. The Chairman reported for the Oberly Award Committee since Mr. Fleming Bennett, Committee Chairman, had to leave the Midwinter Meeting early. It is possible that no award will be given this year due to the lack so far of impressive candidates. If an award is given, it will be presented on June 25 at the Program meeting in Atlantic City.

The Atlantic City meeting will be a joint meeting of the Section and the Subsection. It was decided that the Section business meeting should be held first. Then the Subsection business meeting, and Award if given, will take place prior to the Program meeting. Discussion followed concerning the estimated attendance in order to arrange for a meeting room. It was agreed that advance notification of the meeting would appear in the ACRL News and that flyers would be mailed to the entire Section membership. Announcements would be sent to the Bulletin ML A, Special Libraries and possibly to AHIL.

Louise Darling indicated that Mr. John Sherrod, Director of the National Agricultural Library, who will be the speaker at the Atlantic City Joint meeting will be invited to have cocktails informally with the Subsection Executive Committee and the chairmen of the two Committees after the joint meeting. She will try to set the Subsection Executive Committee for Thursday May 26 at 4:30 p.m.

Various projects were discussed as not profitable to be undertaken by the Subsection at this time. The nominal $50.00 will then be received for the 1969/70 budget.

Harold Rovelstad discussed names of persons to serve as Chairman of the Subsection Nominating Committee for 1970/71 and for the Oberly Award Committee.

The meeting was adjourned at 6:00 p.m.
