CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

ANNUAL STATISTICS 

California library law specifies that the State Librarian shall "collect 
and preserve statistics and other information pertaining to libraries, 
which shall be made available to other public Kbraries within the state 
applying for the information." 

Annual report blanks were sent last summer to all California libraries 
for which we have a listing (exclusive only of individual elementary 
schools). Items in the public library report forms were based on Cali- 
fornia Public Library Service Standards, to gather information that 
could be directly related to them. A single report form has been used 
for all county, city and district Hbraries, with the view of eliminating 
duplicate reporting of certain items from several libraries within one 
system. 

Current data of general interest and of most frequent use from those 
reports, for the fiscal year 1955-56, are presented in this publication. 
Permanent files of the full reports are maintained in the State Library's 
Field Office for reference use and for library history. Comprehensive 
listings and statistical tabulations are presented for your selection, cor- 
relation and interpretation of items in relation to matters of your own 
local interest. Figures are useful only in proportion to the judgment 
applied to their use, of course. Since it is books and people and a com- 
munity that are represented by all the numerical calculations of these 
annual reports, it cannot be overemphasized that the numbers need to 
be considered with many qualifying factors in any local situation. Both 
qualitative and quantitative standards of hbrary service must be kept in 
mind. 

The directory section groups Hbraries by location, under county and 
city, and lists libraries by name. To determine the county in which any 
place is located, see the Place Index, page 11, which includes locations 
of branches and stations that are listed elsewhere only under the central 
library. For arrangement of libraries by subject or type, refer to the 
annual Index Suppleinent (1956) to News Notes of California Libraries. 
The Index Supplement also serves as a directory of chief librarians of all 
listed hbraries. A list of the heads of public libraries in the state appears 
at the front of this issue. 

Statistics for city, county and district libraries, herein referred to as 
"public" Hbraries, are tabulated at the front of this issue. A tabulation 
of reports from university and four-year college libraries also appears 
there. Annual reports for other Hbraries generaUy appear only under 
location, in the directory section of this issue. 

Salary statistics for CaHfornia public libraries will be tabulated in the 
April, 1957, issue of this publication. 

Problems in regard to the collecting of library statistics center chiefly 
on three objects: currency of news, accuracy and completeness of in- 
formation, and uniformity in methods of calculating totals. For accom- 



VOLUME 52, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 957 23 

plishment of these objects, directories, professional journals and printed 
items about California libraries (as gathered by a newspaper clipping 
agency) are checked constantly for facts in addition to those reported 
directly to the State Library each year by librarians. Chief librarians 
listed under names of libraries are those most recently reported in office 
up to the time of publishing these statistics. Population figures are taken 
from regular and special U. S. Census reports. Assessed valuation figures 
are those reported by the State Controller in the booklet, Report of 
Assessed Valuations, Tax Rates and Indebtedness of the Counties of 
California for the fiscal year 1956-51. 

REQUIREMENTS AND DEFINITIONS 
In order that libraries will compile the totals they report in a uniform 
manner, the following requirements and definitions have been appHed: 

A library system includes a central library or libraries with branches and/or 
cooperating libraries, and with smaller library service points, jointly providing the 
public library facilities of the area. 

The term public library is used in the broad sense, to include city, county and 
district libraries which have been legally established by pubhc ofiEcials, are sup- 
ported by income from taxation or other public funds, and have their own trustees 
or other civil governing body. 

An agency is any place, such as a central library, afEliated hbrary, branch, station, 
or bookmobile station, that, as an integral part of the public library system, dis- 
tributes books or otherwise renders library service to the public. 

An affiliated public library is a regularly established city or district library which 
has joined the county hbrary for supplementary service. The city or district hbrary 
retains its own trustees or other governing body, and the city makes an appropria- 
tion for this local public hbrary in addition to paying the county hbrary tax. 

A branch (according to California Public Library Service Standards) is a basic 
library unit operating as part of a hbrary system, and with its services available to 
the public some part of five days a week. It wiU be located in quarters with floor 
area of not less than 1,400 square feet, housing a general collection of at least 7,000 
volumes. It will have a staff equivalent to at least one professional and one non- 
professional employee on duty during time the branch is open to the public. 

A statio?i is a hbrary unit smaller than a branch and operating as part of a Hbrary 
system. 

The total nmnber of distributing agencies of a public library includes the central 
hbrary as well as its branches and stations. Regularly scheduled bookmobile stops 
are counted as stations. The bookmobile itself, however, is not counted as either a 
branch or station. 

A school which is served by a public hbrary and has not a central hbrary room 
meeting the conditions of a branch is a school station. It is counted just as one 
agency even though the books may be divided into a number of class-room col- 
lections. 

The State Library is interested in type of service given in agencies (e.g. school 
and community) rather than just where they are housed. For our purpose, a branch 
housed in a school but giving service entirely to the community is something very 
different from a school agency affiliated for school service. The first is counted as a 
community agency, the second as a school agency. 

Branch library statistics are omitted under the names of various branches. They 
are included, however, in the general figures given under the central hbrary. For 
this reason, any high school, municipal or district hbrary which is affihated with a 



24 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LEBRAKIES 

county free library should, on its own report, note only statistics of its own books 
and circulation, rather than include figures on county materials and services. 

Circulation should not be estimated, but statistics should be kept of actual count 
according to an established system. Total circulation of book materials is the count 
of one for each bound volume, pamphlet or periodical lent for home use, from the 
central library and its agencies, and the count of each renewal. A public hbrary 
includes in its total circulation the count of books lent from schools for home use. 
When loans are made in the name of a school teacher just as an individual borrower 
(rather than from a school station) the count would be one for each book lent and 
one for each renewal recorded. A county Ubrary also includes the circulation of 
county library books from all its agencies, including affiliated libraries, which should 
not include such count in their own annual report totals. 

The collection and circulation of nonbook materials is counted separately from 
that of book materials. The unit count of aU types of sound recordings is by disc 
or reel, of films is by title. Circulation of all such miscellaneous materials is one for 
each unit lent. For example, the count of recordings is by disc, regardless of record 
speed or numbers of titles on a recording. The count of films is by title, and circu- 
lation is equivalent to the number of times a film title is in use for showings, 
regardless of the number of persons in the audience for such showings. 

Interlibrary loans between libraries which are integral parts of the same system 
(branches, stations and affiliated hbraries) are counted as shipments from a central 
library rather than as circulation. The circulation from such individual agencies is 
counted as noted above. State Library books borrowed are included in count of 
interlibrary loans and also in circulation of the borrowing library. 

A shipment from the central library is the lot of items sent to one agency at one 
time. One shipment might be two packages or a dozen, and is reaUy a count of the 
times books and other material have been sent to branches and stations. The total 
items shipped would be a count of the individual books or articles in the packages 
sent. 

The count of employees is by total number and by full-time equivalent of part- 
time and other employees. Such full-time equivalent is calculated by adding the 
number of hours worked by all part-time employees in the library system and 
dividing by the number of hours in a full-time work week. Professional employees 
are defined as those who are college or university and library school graduates, and 
employees who have attained professional status through Hbrary experience and/or 
examination. They perform work of professional grade which requires training and 
sldll in the theoretical or scientific parts of library work (as distinguished from its 
merely mechanical parts). If paid from the library budget, janitors and building 
force are included in the total count of employees. 

In the report of finances, total expenditures include operating expenses and capital 
expenses. Operating expenses are divided into three categories: salaries, library 
materials, service and supplies. Capital expenses, for our purposes, are to include 
only such major outlay items as buildings, additions and remodeling, sites, furni- 
ture and equipment, motor vehicles. Expenditures for books and other "library 
materials" are to be reported under operating expenses.

CALIFORNIA PUBLIC LIBRARY SYSTEMS GROUPED BY 
POPULATION OF AREA TAXED AND SERVED 

Grouping of public libraries on the basis of population served follows to some 
extent the classification of Ubraries employed in the Public Library Inquiry reports 
and specifications in the Public Library Service Standards for California. 

This listing of all public libraries runs together county, district and municipal 
libraries within the four groups of population they serve (based on 1950 census 
figures) . 

It should be noted, therefore, that the statistics for an individual Library affiliated 
with a larger library will appear only under the larger population group of the 
entire library system (i.e., the total population served by all affiliated library units 
in one system, such as a county library and several affiliated municipal or district 
libraries, or such as two county libraries) . 

To provide a uniform base for population figures, the official U. S. Census of 1950 
is used. Not all communities have had a Special U. S. Census since 1950, and local 
unofficial estimates are based on varying measures. However, only estimated popu- 
lation was available for library districts. Since population figures are for area taxed 
and served, the population listed for a county library would not include population 
of cities (in that county) operating independent and unaffiliated pubUc libraries. 
Population figures of affiliated libraries are, therefore, listed in parentheses to indi- 
cate they have been included in the population figure for the larger service unit 
or library system.

The count of 154 library systems equals the count of independent public libraries (through which 55 other public 
libraries were served by affiliation). The count of 209 public libraries included the 154 independent and the 55 
affiliated libraries.

Under construction this year is the 
West Los Angeles Regional Branch, on 
the corner of Purdue Ave. and Santa 
Monica Blvd. Ready for occupancy in 
the fall of 1956, it has 12,300 sq. ft. 
floor area, 60,000 volume shelving ca- 
pacity and cost (exclusive of site, fur- 
nishings, equipment and landscaping) 
about $233,000. The North Hollywood

The West L. A. Branch is the first

part of the City's Capital Improvement 
Program, instituted in 1954 for devel- 
opment of public services to meet in- 
creasing demands of population growth. 

A telephone answer device was in- 
stalled in the central library June 2, 
1956, so that anyone who calls the 
Library at any time it is not open is 
greeted by a recording which informs 
him of the Library's hours open and 
suggests that he call back during that 
time. The device was installed by the 
Telephone Co. and the wording has been 
so phrased that it applies equally well 
on Sundays, holidays, etc. 

Gifts received by the Library during 
the year include .$757 from Warner Ave- 
nue PTA, and $2.59 from other sources. 
Also given was a large private library

The Library is rich in Mexican ma-

man written by Luther and his contem- 
poraries. 

There are about 10,000 English pam- 
phlets representing the years 1640 to 
1660 particularly v^^ell, with others fill- 
ing in the period from 1660 to 1690. An

A MILESTONE FOR LOS ANGELES COUNTY 
PUBLIC LIBRARY 

Los Angeles County Public Library in April, 1956, marked the addi- 
tion to its book collection of the 1,000,000th volume. It was a copy of 
the recent California Library Association publication. County Free 
Library Organizing in California, 1909-1918, by Harriet G. Eddy, the 
State Library's first library organizer. 

County Librarian John D. Henderson noted: "The personal recollec- 
tions of Miss Eddy's years of campaigning to make the dream of the 
late State Librarian James L. Gilhs, a library service that would be 
'equal, economical and complete', come true, chronicles the history, not 
only of the Los Angeles County Library but of all county libraries in 
the state. Since Cahfornia was one of the first states in the Union to 
enact such a law, and many others that followed suit patterned their acts 
on the California statute, the book is in essence a record of the county 
library movement." 

Los Angeles County Library is only the second public library in 
California to reach the million books milestone. The occasion was cele- 
brated May 16 with a breakfast and program at the Los Angeles Break- 
fast Club, and the talks were broadcast over Station KPOL that morning. 
Dr. Powell's talk is recorded below. 

ONE BOOK IN A MILLION 

LA^VRENCE Clark Powell, Librarian 
University of California at Los Angeles 

As one who lives in but not yet on the county, and although I work 
for the state, it seems fitting that I take part in this county library cere- 
mony, for I have been privileged to work for the past ten years with 
County Librarian Henderson and City Librarian Hamill, in developing 
a cooperative system of strong libraries in the greater Los Angeles area. 
Out at UCLA we are high-tailing it toward our second million, trying 
to get a few books ahead of the 32,000 students expected by 1965, and 
I can remember all the bookish milestones on the way, as we passed the 
various hundred thousand marks. There is sacredness in numbers, when 
they symbolize something significant and are not merely evidence of a 
crazy worship of statistics as important in themselves. 

A few books are better than none, but in a county the size of Los 
Angeles, where milHons of people have more leisure to read, libraries 
must have books in great numbers and must have them in convenient 
locations. I live on the Mahbu, only five miles from the Ventura county 
line, out in what might be called the marine sticks, and I can testify to 
what the Los Angeles County Library's bookmobile, on its weekly 
rounds, means to the people of the seacoast and backchaparral. There 
is only one county agent more devoted than the Ubrarian in seeking out 
these isolated citizens: I mean the county tax assessor. 



252 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

I have spent all my life in this great county, which does so much for 
its residents in return for the taxes they pay, and I learned to read in 
the same year that the County Library was organized— the year 1912— 
and by the time I was twelve, I had read all the books in the small South 
Pasadena Public Library and was reaching out to the County Library 
for more printed worlds optically to conquer. 

We had a family cabin in the Big Santa Anita Canyon, where my 
brothers and I used to spend weekends. First we took the Big Red Car 
to Sierra Madre, then hiked five miles into the San Gabriels, coming at 
twilight to First Water Crossing, and soon after to Roberts Camp, 
where we stopped for supplies. To the family this meant Pork and Beans; 
to me it meant Purple Sage and Western Stars. For the familiar orange 
and white county library sign, modelled after the blue and white sign 
of the telephone company, meant that Roberts Camp was a station in the 
newly founded system of the Los Angeles County Free Public Library. 
And there on a shelf or two in the back of the store, lit by a kerosene 
lamp, I discovered the books of Zane Grey: The Rainbow Trail, The 
Heritage of the Desert, The Light of Western Stars, and (most wonder- 
ful of all) The Riders of the Purple Sage which, followed closely by 
Owen Wister's The Virginian, is, in my opinion, the greatest western 
of them all. 

Pork and beans devoured, dishes washed, beds made up and family 
asleep on the porch, I would stay up reading Zane Grey by lamplight, 
to the sound of water and the smell of streambed, that sweet incense of 
canyon. 

It was Zane Grey who first made me conscious of what it means to 
be a westerner, and although subsequent reading and experience have 
broadened and deepened those ideas, I will grow old and die believing 
that the colorful and romantic West is God's country, and feeling sorry 
for those who live on the wrong side of the Rockies. 

Zane Grey's are books in a million, certainly, but I want to remark 
now on the book which John Henderson has chosen to be the one 
millionth volume added to the Los Angeles County Library. It is in 
every sense a book in a million, just as its author is a rare and uncommon 
person. The book is a newly published volume of personal recollections 
by the woman who from 1909 to 1918, as an employee of the State 
Library, was organizing county libraries throughout California. Her 
name is Harriet G. Eddy. It was she who organized the Los Angeles 
County Library in the year 1912. 

This is an age of supreme devotion to Power. Small boys now brag 
on the horsepower of their family's car, and our highways are a frightful 
example of what happens when there are more horses under its hood 
than brains in man's head. All of this passion for power culminates in 
the atomic explosion which is now thought to be the most powerful of 
all man's efforts. This kind of power can be measured, for its duration 
is brief. I want to suggest a source of power that is immeasurable and 
greater than that of anything man has ever known. I mean the power 



VOLUME 52, NO. I, JANUARY, I957 253 

of a determined woman. I need not invoke history for proof; every man 
knows what I mean. 

The woman ^^'ho organized the Los Angeles County Library was such 
a determined and powerful woman. Inspired and led by James L. Gillis, 
then State Librarian, and propounding a library system that was ideally 
suited to the wide open spaces of county territory, Harriet Eddy fell 
on Los Angeles county with facts and faith, with energy and zeal, barn- 
storming from Lancaster to Watts, from Claremont to Venice; explod- 
ing a brilliant idea and a workable plan in the midst of supervisors, 
mayors, educators, publishers, and just plain taxpayers, driving the foun- 
dations deep, raising the superstructure high, spreading out over this 
great county, even to remote camps in deep canyons, taking the books 
to the people, and demonstrating what lasting things can be achieved 
when a man and a woman are teamed and pulling together. 

And today, forty-four years later, the results of this powerful little 
believing and doing woman's work endure in a library system which 
includes 114 community branches and stations, employs 563 people, and 
circulates 5,000,000 volumes a year to the readers of Los Angeles County. 

It was man who conceived horsepower and Idlowatt hours, thermody- 
namics and nuclear fission; and man's determining mind is still the great- 
est force on earth. What man's mind wills, will be done. And here in this 
populous county, where so much power is running wild, there is great 
need for the mind's control and direction. 

And so this book in a million, this millionth book, this unpretentious 
little paper-bound volume, reproduced from typewritten copy, written 
in her old age by a determined woman who believed in books and 
people, this work, I maintain, most wonderfully symbolizes all I have 
been saying, that ideas and faith, that energy and determination have 
made us Americans what we are today and, God willing, will preserve 
us for an even greater future of social usefulness. 

So here's to the millionth book, and also to the second million, may 
they come soon and ever be freely read by a free and powerful people!

CALIFORNIA COUNTY LIBRARIANS 

The official annual meeting of county librarians, called by the State 
Librarian in accordance with CaUfornia library law, was held at the 
Hotel El Cortez in San Diego on October 30, 1956. All were in at- 
tendance except the Acting Librarians of Colusa, Glenn and Trinity 
Counties. 

Theme of the program was Enrichment of Library Service in Outly- 
ing Areas. During the morning session it was discussed in relation to 
"Bookmobile Service: Pros and Cons." Carol Trimble, Librarian of 
Douglas County Library at Roseburg, Oregon, was guest speaker on 
that subject. Barbara G. Boyd, State Library Consultant, then served 
as moderator during the question and answer period. It was announced 
that Miss Trimble would be available for individual consultations during 
the CLA Conference the balance of that week in San Diego. 

The afternoon session carried on the theme with a panel discussion on 
"Reaching Readers: Other Ways?", with Dorothy Sinclair, State Li- 
brary Consultant, serving as moderator. Introducing the topic, she re- 
fered to the morning session on bookmobiles, pointing out that among 
the things a bookmobile cannot do particularly well are provide refer- 
ence service and reach really isolated people in the area the library is 
to serve. Can the county library supplement the normal stations-and- 
requests reference service in some way to overcome some of the disad- 
vantages and limitations of such ser^dce in rural stations staffed by busy 
people who are frequently only providing housing for the library outlet 
in a store or post office? In short, can the county library bring to such 
areas, in addition to the station service they will continue to receive, 
something approximating the professional person-to-person reference 
and readers' advisory service given at headquarters of the county library 
and in large, professionally-staffed branch Ubraries? Seeking new solu- 
tions to old problems, or at least considering using old methods on an 
unprecedented scale, the panel members spoke of using radio and TV 
for direct reference service, use of mail and telephone, making demon- 
strations of stepped-up service for a period of time. Needs are to 
provide better service, faster service, reach more readers and fill the 
information needs of non-readers, extend and improve the library's 
"personalized" service to more people, make successful use of pubHcity 
to "sell" the library program during a demonstration period. 

Miss Sinclair, \\'ho has had years of experience doing library radio 
programs as well as reference work, had recorded on tape and played 
to the audience her "model" broadcast to demonstrate possible use of 
radio and letter post to increase personal reference service from a 
county library headquarters. This tape recording (of a five minute 
broadcast) may be requested by any California public library on loan 
from the State Library Field Office for ideas and possible adaption to 
local use. 



VOLUME 52, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 957 255 

As one member of the panel, John E. Smith, Librarian of Santa 
Barbara City and County Library, described how he would modify 
such a plan for a hbrary with a large central collection of materials, 
some sizeable branches and also an extensive, sparsely populated, outly- 
ing area. Representing the county hbrary without a large central service 
but with a wide area (sparsely populated) to be served by the county 
library was Walter Sharafanowich, San Luis Obispo County Librarian. 
He demonstrated graphically the problems of reaching many remote 
areas in a county by radio broadcasts that may not readily be picked 
up by receivers in those areas. There was also discussion of problems 
arising from residents of another county picking up the broadcasts and 
writing to the wrong county library for loan service, although it was 
agreed there should be no insurmountable problems in arranging to 
transfer such requests between libraries. Presumably, reference service 
from a public library is available to anyone, regardless of place of resi- 
dence. Mary Cavitt, Librarian of Inyo County Library, which also serves 
Mono County under contract, presented the views of a librarian full of 
ideas for extending and enriching library service but constantly limited 
in implementation of progressive plans by physical restrictions inherent 
in the terrain, the climate, the extreme sparseness of population and the 
lack of electrification, even, in many areas. 

In the course of the business meeting, over which Mrs. Carma R. 
Zimmerman presided as ex-officio chairman, the report of the Secretary- 
Treasurer was given by Carl W. Hamilton. Appointed by the State 
Librarian to s:ucceed him in this office for the next year was Mrs. Helen 
R. Dambacher, Librarian of Tuolumne County Library. Mrs. Zimmer- 
man reported on the library legislation program and told of bills being 
drafted by the Legislative Counsel in Sacramento for later presentation 
to the California Legislature. Those which affect county librarians will 
be brought to their attention directly. Mrs. Bertha D. Helium, Contra 
Costa County Librarian, spoke briefly about two proposals for amending 
the Government Code and the Education Code, relating to (1) con- 
struction of public buildings and county free libraries, and (2) the term 
of office and the status of the county librarian in counties which have 
adopted an ordinance under the County Civil Service Enabling Law. 
The group voted endorsement of both proposals. 

Greetings from the Cahfornia County Librarians were sent to Minette 
Stoddard with good wishes for her years of retirement. June E. Young, 
Librarian designate of Merced and Mariposa Counties, who would suc- 
ceed Miss Stoddard December 1, 1956, was introduced to the group. 
Another guest was Helen Wood, Librarian of Washoe County Library, 
Reno, Nevada. Attending from the State Library were the State Li- 
brarian, Assistant State Librarian, three Library Consultants, Editorial 
Librarian, two Principal Librarians and the Supervising Reference Li- 
brarian. Packets of informational materials for distribution to all in 
attendance and displays of related items were prepared by the State 
Library staff also.

USE OF COLOR IN LIBRARIES 

wt. Bob Brown, Member, American Institute of Decorators 

The following paper was presented by Mr, Brown, Color Consultant 
noted for his work in the Los Angeles Public Library building and 
throughout southern California, at the luncheon meeting of California 
County Librarians on October 30, 1956. 



Any discussion of color usually springs from the need of a new paint 
job. We can talk all we want to about how much color does for the 
soul, but the fact remains that the real impetus to do something about 
our surroundings is the sheer necessity of having to repaint the walls and 
woodwork in order to preserve the aura of respectability. 

I am assuming that most of you are ensconced in old buildings which 
could certainly be made more attractive than they are. The typical 
situation, then, would be an old building in need of maintenance, a staff 
of librarians who all agree that since the work is to be done, it should 
result in as pleasant a change as possible, and that there is an amount 
of money at hand which has been tagged with the highly acceptable 
label of "maintenance." No matter how small the amount of money, it is 
often difficult to justify its expenditure for a high-sounding project like 
"interior decoration." 

Multitudes of people pass through the doors of libraries all over Cali- 
fornia in spite of the drab surroundings they have to put up with in 
order to pursue culture. I imagine that the public takes whatever it sees 
in public buildings— decoratively speaking— much like the cost of living: 
it is always with us and there isn't much to be done about it. If, once 
in a while, there is a pleasant surprise, this is a dividend rather than the 
just reward of being a taxpayer. You are just as aware of this as I am, 
and it should bother you very much because you have to live, day by 
day, with your surroundings. On the other hand, living day by day with 
I things which are uninteresting makes us relatively unaware of exactly 
what we see. The danger is not the unawareness, but the familiarity. 
We tend to lose sight of the possibilities which exist when the time 
comes to make improvements. In other words, a fresh frame of mind 
on the day of decision is of utmost importance. We don't want to find 
ourselves so dulled by the problems of appearance that we can't see the 
forest for the trees. 

The first question which arises in planning a new decorative scheme 
for an old building is how to cope with certain things about which 
jnothing can be done. This, however, is a standard problem in nearly 
every re-decorating project. All decorative schemes begin with a list of 
^limitations. So, the first thing to do is to take note of all the color limita- 
itions which exist. 

One characteristic of any public building, colorwise, is the extensive 

e of permanent structural materials— stone, brick, tile, etc. which must 

9—43600 



258 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

be used exactly as they were originally installed. This can be very dis- 
couraging. Many materials which are permanent are nonetheless interest- 
ing in themselves, if the proper color setting can be created for them. 
If, however, they are relatively impossible to accommodate, they can be 
minimized by attracting decorative attention elsewhere. 

There are five main groups into which decorative and color limita- 
tions usually fall: 1) structural materials, 2) built-ins, 3) display spaces, 
4) furniture and equipment, and 5) purely decorative possessions. Let's 
take these groups one by one. 

1) Structural materials consist of stone (granite, flagstone, slate, etc.) 
marble, brick, cast concrete, tile and certain composition flooring mate- 
rials. Woods are important too, evidenced by doors, mouldings, stair- 
^vays, paneling, raihngs, floors, ceilings, built-in necessities and, of course, 
the quantities of shelves. 

2) Built-ins consist of the main desk, storage closets and cabinets, 
display racks and cabinets, high and low partitions, and, of course, the 
shelves. 

3) Display spaces consist of the wall areas and, occasionally, the floor 
areas which must be devoted to that function of the public library 
which displays things not in book form: maps, charts, signs, bulletins, 
posters, etc. some of which are permanent, and some of which must 
change periodically. 

4) Furniture and equipment consists of tables, chairs, free-standing 
shelves, book carts, benches, coat racks, and, in addition, whatever office 
equipment is seen in the pubUc parts of the building, such as desks, files, 
catalogues and specialized items peculiar to libraries. 

5) Decorative possessions, if any, consist of carpets, draperies, uphol- 
stery (fabric and leather), Venetian blinds in metal or wood and all the 
placques, pictures and murals which accumulate in the plain spaces on 
the walls. Here I shall add only a reference to impossible and inadequate 
lighting fixtures. 

I am sure that from these five groups of limitations, you will have 
no trouble in assembling your list of the things you can do absolutely 
nothing about. What does this leave? x\ctually, it leaves a great deal of 
possibihty; because we still have the walls, the money tagged for main- 
tenance, and the will to get the most attractive background for the 
Ubrary's activities as possible. The best thing color can do is to tie loose 
ends together. Color is purely and simply a visual problem. There is no 
formula ^^•hich can be applied which is any good except on the one 
single project for A^'^hich it M'as developed. Color is like the potentials 
of the chemistry laboratory— the skilled technicians are constantly exper- 
imenting because every new trial suggests subtle ramifications, and even 
the simplest combinations of colors can be exploited in many ways. 

There are some basic facts about color which we should consider i 
before going any farther. First, the eye can distinguish an unbeHevable i 
number of variations in color. The eye is the most delicate of all optical 
instruments for this purpose. There are literally thousands of well under- ■ 
Stood color names which we have apphed to describe colors. But, for 



i 



VOLUME 52, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 957 259 

every one of these names, the normal eye can distinguish a thousand 
variations of that color. We are usually not aware of this ability. Just 
as in anything else which concerns vision, we frequently see only what 
we look for, and we can be trained to look for much more than we 
normally happen to see. Aside from color-blindness, all it takes to be 
able to see color variations is to know what to look for, then go ahead 
and look. 

In order to help this looking process, it has been determined that color 
has three qualities, and all three are always present in any color we see. 
They are hue, value and intensity. Hue, is the color name (red, orange, 
yellow or celadon, turquoise, amythyst). The second quality of color 
is value; the degree of lightness or darkness. Yellows are light in value 
and never drop below a high middle in the value scale. Red, by com- 
parison, is relatively dark. A light value of red is so, conspicuously 
changed in character that we even call it by a different name— pink. 
A dark red, however, retains its character as it darkens, and we use 
names like ruby and cherry. Green is a dark value color, but its basic 
name remains as green no matter how light or dark it may become. 
This is also true of blue. In the composite colors like blue-green, the 
lighter values become peacock, then turquoise, then aqua, and finally 
the very white whites which have a slightly blue-green cast. The third 
quality of color is intensity— the degree of brilliance or pure color 
present. At the highest level of intensity, we say stop red, kelly green, 
royal blue— these are bright colors, colors which are very high in inten- 
sity. At the other end of the intensity scale these same colors have quite 
different names. Stop red becomes maroon, kelly green becomes brew- 
ster green, royal blue becomes navy blue. For further comparison, these 
low intensity colors, which are also very dark values, can be lightened 
in value, while keeping their same greyed intensities. Maroon lightens 
to ashes of roses, brewster green becomes celadon, navy blue becomes 
French blue. The three qualities of color are very helpful in distinguish- 
ing and identifying the colors we see and in determining the colors we 
want. We hear periodically that certain colors are neutral, and that they 
go with everything. But this is not so. We can see many more colors 
than we could ever find names for, so it is foolishness to refer to an 
entire group of easily distinguished colors, all of which are called, for 
instance, beige, and then say that beige goes with everything because 
it is neutral. The only neutral thing about beige is its name— it tells us 
nothing. Now let's trace a couple of the familiar beige colors backward 
in the value scale toward their origin. A gray-beige can be traced back 
through a darker putty color, to a sepia brown, which, in turn is nothing 
more than a yellow-orange greyed down to its lowest intensity. A pink 
beige reverts to a warm tan, then goes back to a mahogany brown, 
which is red greyed to its lowest intensity. These two beiges have two 
I things in common besides their same name— their values, which are very 
light, and their intensities, which are very greyed. They are still easily 
I distinguishable from one another, they are not the same colors, and 
;i therefore might not go with everything. The point is that obvious dif- 



260 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

ferences in colors exist even when we have run out of adequate classi- 
fications. 

Everything has color, and many commonplace things around us have 
very positive, though often subtle, color which make them what they 
are, visually. Look carefully at these permanent structural materials 
which must be accommodated. Sometimes the color isn't good, some- 
times it's all right but doesn't have any place in what we're trying to 
accomplish, and sometimes the old famihar look, colorwise, is really 
quite acceptable if given the proper setting. The problem is to identify 
those colors which exist, or at least to identify them as to their general 
color effect. For instance, among the various stones used in structure, 
fieldstone is a medium-light value of a simple gray; volcanic rock is a 
dark value of brownish black; flagstone is an upper-middle value of 
pink-beige. Flagstone, incidentally, looks quite yellowish compared to 
most stone, which is the way we usually think of it, but just try to 
paint the walls surrounding an area of flagstone in any color, of a 
similar light value, which contains an amount of yellow and watch the 
pink appear. Travertine marble, however, actually is a yellow-beige. 
Cast concrete is really quite a pleasant beige-gray, but so subtle that it 
usually looks forgotten if it is contrasted with more eye-catching colors. 
Common brick is much more of a greyed pinkish red than we are in- 
clined to think of it as being. If you've ever tried to match paint to 
common brick, you will know what I mean. 

Among the woods which have been used so freely in public buildings, 
oak is predominant because it is enduring. The natural color of oak is 
a beautiful color— a rather light value of slightly pinkish gray. Like all 
woods, it has to be finished; and in the process, it is usually stained dark, 
or covered with a durable varnish which turns the natural color into 
a raw yellowish color, almost as unpleasant as the raw look of birch, 
in a so-called "natural" finish. Walnut, in its natural state, is a middle 
value, and in color, is a very greyed brown. It is usually stained to take 
up color variations in the boards and becomes the very familiar dark, 
ponderous color. Mahogany is a light-middle value, with a definite pink 
cast, and turns rather startlingly reddish when it is finished if it isn't 
stained first to darken and dull the color. Most of our difficulties in 
having to accommodate existing wood colors lies in the initial lack of 
imagination when the wood was to be prepared for finishing. There are 
many things which can be done to woods, which will preserve the grain 
and the inherent characteristics of the material, but which will produce 
many pleasing varieties of color. If your project calls for refinishing 
woodwork, consider the possibility of bleaching, of glazing with light 
colored pigments, and of careful staining to specific requirements of 
hue, value and intensity. If the wood colors can't be controlled by refin- 
ishing, certainly some of the more objectionable areas can be painted. 
This may sound like heresy in the case of expensive wood paneling. 
This is the time to remember that we are talking about color, not about I 
the sanctity of public property. 



VOLUME 52, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 957 261 

This is the kind of color identification you must make at the outset 
and these are typical of the materials about which nothing can be done. 
Your problem, then, is either to enhance the materials by creating a 
color setting compatible with them, or to ignore them wherever neces- 
sary by using color which minimizes the objectionable quality, or which 
frankly attracts the eye elsewhere— or both. 

Recognizing the actual existing colors in structural materials goes 
beyond simple identification. The next visual step is to determine the 
amount of these colors, the areas they cover. For instance, a dark oak 
floor, or a light yellowish one, for that matter, is a very large amount 
of one color. Paneling, flooring and exposed brick are usually large 
areas. Our problem, then, is not one of camouflage, which, in these cases, 
is impossible, but rather, one of enhancement. A very dark floor could 
be a good foil for using a number of bright colors on different walls 
which would need the weight of a large, dark accent to hold them 
down. A paneled stair well might be contrasted with a very intense 
ceiling color. A dreary stone stairway might come to life if a color is 
selected which brings out the subtle color of the stonework. This could 
be a closely related color which blends sufficiently to increase the total 
area of the general color effect, thus making the stone color more im- 
portant, or it could be an eye-catching contrast in hue and value against 
which the stone is relatively unimportant. 

I said at the outset that even though the limitations are very great, 
we still have the walls, some money to paint them with, and the will 
to do a good job. Wall areas which are to be painted should be con- 
sidered in two ways. First is the possibility of a single background color. 
The other possibility is to consider each wall, or even parts of walls, 
as individual areas which need not be done alike. Since much of the 
wall space is divided— either horizontally with shelves, leaving only the 
upper walls exposed, or separated vertically by doorways, alcoves, stair- 
wells, high windows, and other architectural breaks— it is rare to en- 
counter a public room where one single background color painted 
arbitrarily all over all the walls is the best answer. Even if the architec- 
ture is so poor that a single color must be used, generally for back- 
ground, there are still many places where accents may be used. Important 
doors might be emphasized with positive color accents. The ceiling 
might be accented. The supporting posts standing in the room might 
be painted differently from the background color. The stairwell might 
be accented for the sake of color, even if it is uninspired as an archi- 
tectural feature. Perhaps only one wall in the entire room is relatively 
uncluttered. This might well be the wall selected for a good accent 
color. Ceiling colors can successfully be carried down over one or more 
wall spaces in the room to create a visual interest. CeiHng colors can be 
changed from room to room, particularly if the rooms can be seen 
together. Low, recessed alcoves always should be considered as color 
accent areas. Ceilings in these areas offer additional opportunities for 
color change. Passageways should definitely be considered as accent 
areas and should have as much color variety as possible, using different 



262 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

colors on the opposite sides and on the ceiling, and doing the end wall 
of the passage as a positive, attractive color. Offices seen from the main 
rooms might be accented for the sake of the effect from outside. All of 
the smaller spaces— such as vestibules, telephone booths and, of course, 
the rest rooms— should be made as colorful as is possible. It is quite 
possible to use unusual colors in small, relatively isolated spaces; and 
in many smaller library buildings these areas are the only ones where 
very much imagination can be used. 

I must, at this point, make an important comment on lighting and its 
effect on color. Normal daylight is our usual point of reference in 
determining just what color we are seeing. However, most interior 
colors are seen under artificial light. Incandescent light, the light from 
standard light bulbs, is yellow, and we are quite used to it. The distor- 
tion of interior paint colors from daylight to incandescent light is, in 
many cases, negligible, except that very grayed blues can be affected, 
and certain grays will change noticeably. Any other differences in the 
effect of color after it has been painted on the wall is due to relative 
amounts of light and to reflections from other wall colors, from strong 
sources of direct light, and reflections from large floor areas. Fluorescent 
light will create drastic changes in color; so, if you are planning a fluo- 
rescent installation or are improving your present one, remember that 
all fluorescent light will noticeably distort color. The way to be sure 
of your final result is very simple— make the color choices under the 
Kght condition existing where the colors are to be seen. This can be 
done easily. Simply hook up a fixture of any type which contains the 
type of bulbs to be used, and use this as your source of light when you 
plan and select your colors. Without great experience with many kinds 
of artificial light this is the direct and the best way to be sure what 
your result will be. 

Color is visual; it must be seen to be identified. Color selection, then, 
is a matter of seeing samples of colors before final selections can be made. 
This is not so difficult today, because the manufacturers of paint have 
developed excellent custom color systems and offer a great variety of 
samples through their paint dealers, where you can shop for your colors. 
All large manufacturers produce paint which compares in quality and 
price. Most of them offer pre-mixed colors for your selection, and most 
of the colors are very good. The systems take into account personal 
preferences and usually have a means whereby the basic color you 
select may be altered to suit its special use. Most systems are the same 
in principle— an extensive assortment of colors, determined according 
to style trends, are prepared at the factory under controlled formulae 
or are prepared by dealers according to recipes, using intermixes of 
basic colors, or by using small tubes of tinting color in the amounts ; 
called for on the back of the color sample you select. The most com- 
prehensive system uses a delicate and expensive machine, which the 
dealer owns and with which he can prepare to your order, in any 
quantity, exactly the color you select from thousands of color samples. 
With this particular system, an exact match is possible whenever you I 



VOLUME 52, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 957 263 

may need to buy more of the same color. This is especially valuable in 
future maintenance. With the many systems on the market, there is 
every opportunity for good color choices to be found somewhere in 
someone's system, and always in high quality products. 

Most painting projects are somewhat comprehensive, and incur a good 
deal of expense, chiefly in labor costs. It is advisable to have a well 
organized plan of attack and to use any device available which will 
save time and tears. One of the most diflicult groups of craftsmen to 
cope with is the painters. Be sure that whoever supervises your redec- 
orating project has had enough experience to know how to handle the 
adjustment to their very delicate temperaments. All good painters are 
very proud of their craftsmanship. You can win your painter's con- 
fidence by being aware of craftsmanship. Many painters will revolt at 
certain colors, especially dark ones, because they are technically more 
difficult to apply. The painter's reaction usually is to offer a negative 
criticism of the color itself. To avoid this, show him your colors and, 
before he gets a chance to say anything, ask him if he can put them 
on the walls without streaking, and, of course, he can. If you use a 
product he is familiar with, he can't blame the paint, and he won't admit 
defeat on his skill. This strategy should leave you with the colors you 
want. 

It is possible that you will specify a product the painter doesn't use 
because of the many pre-mixed, custom color systems on the market. 
You may have to sell the painter on the convenience the system offers 
him because of the time-saving element for him and his crew. Primarily, 
he is free of the nuisance of painting endless samples, and partially free 
of the sidewalk superintendents which sample-inspections always attract. 
He will usually be quite pleased to be cooperative for the sake of being 
left alone to get his proper work done. This also miraculously forestalls 
any further argument about the actual colors. 

Of course, the answer to all these problems is to engage the services 
of a color consultant. I realize that in most situations professional color 
consultation is impractical. I can say this: if the best advice is not avail- 
able to you, don't settle for less. Instead, it is far better to tackle the 
project yourself. The important things are to be open-minded and 
imaginative. Think of your color plan as an opportunity. Use as much 
variety as the spaces will hold. Have good, definite accents, contrasts 
of hue, value and intensity. This will take a lot of thought, some soul- 
searching, great courage and probably some gritting of teeth in the face 
of criticism. In the crisis, remember that amateur mistakes lie in timid- 
ity—where the results are weak and diluted to the point where they 
offend no one. 

Color is a visual experience and not theoretical talk. It is to be enjoyed, 
and is even to be changed once in a while. If it doesn't turn out well 
the first time, remember that it is only a coat of paint. But, when you 
think of the improvement even a coat of paint can make, it is worth 
taking the chance that the brave new colors might be a great success.

NEW STANDARDS FOR LIBRARY SERVICES 
AND FACILITIES 

The American Library Association has published the new statement 
of criteria for adequate library service in the United States, Public 
Library Service; A Guide to Evaluation, with Minimum Standards* 

The new book states 70 broad general principles of library service- 
goals for pubHc libraries to aim at, and by which they can evaluate their 
present performance. These principles are linked with nearly 200 specific 
minimum standards, relating the general principles to measurable aspects 
of library service— such factors as the size of the library collection of 
books in relation to population, or the number of new books that a 
dynamic library would add each year. Included with the book is a 
supplement, Costs of Library Service in 1956, which given current infor- 
mation on the actual costs of minimum service for representative library 
systems in different parts of the country. 

Public Library service is the result of more than two years' work by 
a Coordinating Committee of the Public Libraries Division of ALA. 
In addition, hundreds of individual librarians and informed citizens have 
been involved in the work of producing the book, and 26 interested pro- 
fessional groups. The final document will, these groups feel, have a 
direct bearing on the cultural and educational opportunities of every 
person within reach of a library. It carries the commendation of the 
leaders in many areas of American life, beginning with the President of 
the United States. 

The book is a successor to two earlier statements of national library 
standards which appeared in 1933 and 1943. Robert D. Leigh— Dean, 
School of Library Service, Columbia University, New York, N.Y.— 
served as a special consultant throughout the work of the committee. 

The following were members of the ALA Coordinating Committee 
that did the actual writing of the book: Low^ell A. Martin (Chairman), 
Dean, Graduate School of Library Service, Rutgers University, New 
Brunswick, N.J.; John M. Cory, Chief, Circulation Department, New 
York Public Library, New York, N.Y.; Lucile Nix, Chief Library Con-

ASSEMBLY SUBCOMMITTEE ON PUBLIC LIBRARY 
PROBLEMS 

When Assemblyman Ernest R. Geddes held public hearings before 
his Subcommittee on Public Library Problems (Assembly Education 
Committee) November 29-30, the State Librarian testified and members 
of the State Library administrative staff and the Supervising Law Li- 
brarian were on call as resource persons. Representatives from the Cali- 
fornia Library Association, School Library Association and California 
Teachers Association, State Department of Finance and Legislative Au- 
ditor's staff attended; and library administrators from city and county 
libraries and school libraries in several areas of the state presented testi- 
mony bearing on public library development and legislation. 

The agenda for the two-day hearings in the State Capitol included 
discussion of: 1) Library service as a concern of the State; review and 
background of the present situation; outlook for the future; need for a 
survey; 2) Public library service in California, a qualitative evaluation 
by practicing librarians; how libraries are organized, financed and oper- 
ated; how they fail to meet standards and how they can be improved; 
3) Specific legislation requested for state and public libraries; 4) School 
library legislation requested. 

At the annual business meeting of the California Library Association 
in San Diego on November 2 there was a unanimous vote of the assem- 
bled membership for a resolution that had been proposed jointly by the 
Legislative and Library Development and Standards Committees of 
CLA. This resolution served to reiterate the position of the California 
Library Association "that the public interest of all the people of Cali- 
fornia will be served by a comprehensive inquiry into the present con- 
dition of library service in this state, and . . . recommend to the As- 
sembly Education Committee's Subcommittee to Study Library Prob- 
lems that the Subcommittee request the Governor of California to 
appoint a properly constituted body to make the necessary study." 
Testimony presented at the Geddes committee hearings firmly sup- 
ported and substantiated the need for such a commission to conduct an 
impartial study of public library resources and services in California. 

It is hoped that appointment of such a commission (to include legis- 
lators, trustees, librarians and members of the lay citizenry) will lead 
to a master plan for the improvement and adequate financing of library 
services throughout the state. The commission would need funds suf- 
ficient for hiring a technical and clerical staff, and to cover travel costs 
and publication of a report of studies made, to serve as a guide for 
future library planning. 

Emphasis was placed on the educational purpose of the public library 
and its place in the total pattern of California public education— schools, 
colleges and universities, public libraries. Apparent divergence in public 
library services rendered in various areas indicates need for more com- 
plete, efficient and equalized service over the state. New conditions in 



VOLUME 52, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 957 267 

California call for realignment of facilities and organization of library 
service to meet needs of the burgeoning population and to give the 
taxpayers proper value for the tax money being expended on public 
libraries. The old pattern served well in its time, we were reminded, 
but is now outmoded. 

Assemblyman Geddes announced, at conclusion of the hearings on 
November 30 at noon, that he will edit and have printed and distributed 
for the California Legislature the complete testimony and supplementary 
data presented to his Subcommittee by participants in this public hear- 
ing. These included Harold L. Hamill, Henry Madden, John D. Hen- 
derson, Dr. Percival A. Gray, Jr., Percy Heckendorf, Edwin Castagna, 
Margaret Klausner, Raymond Holt, Esther Mardon, Thelma Reid, 
Katherine Laich, Mrs. Carma R. Zimmerman, Mrs. Bertha D. Helium, 
Mrs. Thelma G. Boslar, L. Herman Smith, Mrs. Maurine Hardin, As- 
semblyman Lloyd W. Lowrey. 

Attention of the state legislators was directed to "Library Service" 
by Governor Goodwin J. Knight in his "Message to the California 
Legislature" on January 7, 1957. 

"As we again assume our mutual obligations to the people of Cali- 
fornia," the governor announced to the Joint Session of Senate and 
Assembly, "it is my duty under the State Constitution to report to you 
on the condition of our State and to invite your attention to matters 
which I believe should have your consideration during the coming 
months." 

Among the items detailed, then, was the following statement about 
California libraries. 

"Our splendid public libraries constitute what is probably our most 
valuable single asset for the continuing and expanding educational needs 
of our people. Both as a substitute for and a supplement to formal 
education, these institutions are of tremendous lifetime benefit to those 
Californians who are able to take advantage of their services. 

"However, their availability is, according to reliable authority, some- 
what restricted and many communities of our State suffer from an 
inadequacy or total absence of such facilities. 

"I beheve that this is an important and frequently overlooked area 
for public consideration and discussion. I commend the members of the 
Legislature who have expressed their deep interest in the subject and I 
feel that their activities in this direction certainly merit your attention."

OPERATION LIBRARY— CALIFORNIA JAYCEE 
PROJECT 

The Junior Chamber of Commerce in California recently adopted 
"Operation Library" as its annual community service project for 1957, 
in line with the U. S. Jaycee action reported in the October, 1956, issue 
of News Notes of Calif orjiia Libraries (p. 479). 

Channel of communication in this statewide project is from the State 
Junior Chamber of Commerce "Operation Library" Chairman to some 
200 local chapter chairmen, and thence to the organization's 12,000 
members in California. Chairman of the Civic Improvement and Gov- 
ernment Affairs Committee of the California Jaycee, Terry Daly of 
Santa Barbara, will be, in effect, chairman of "Operation Library." 
The December, 1956, BuUetin of the national Jaycee has featured the 
community service project, and the state Junior Chamber of Commerce 
sends out semi-monthly mailings throughout the year to local chapter 
presidents and chapter representatives on the state board of directors. 
The latter releases will provide a regular line of disseminating news of 
what is going on in each community as well as stimulating further 
activities for "Operation Library." 

The California Library Association, the State Library and others 
concerned both with library development and with publicizing the 
availability of public library facilities in communities are eager to work 
with the California Junior Chamber of Commerce on "Operation 
Library" to make the whole program a successful and effective one. 
The State Library will be represented at the February meeting of the 
Jaycee Civic Improvement and Government Affairs Committee in 
Fresno. Full support of the CLA Trustees Section was assured when 
that group wired Mr. Daly's Committee on November 3 urging the 
adoption of "Operation Library" as the 1957 project. 

Although there will be certain overall, statewide activities planned 
by the California Jaycee, the chapters will be encouraged to carry on 
local and special committee activities as well. The United States Junior 
Chamber of Commerce urges that state groups get the "Operation 
Library" program under way in January and concentrate most of their 
efforts on it during the spring months, although it is to carry through 
the year 1957. 

California librarians are most fortunate to have this vigorous organiza- 
tion of citizen groups willing to work as friendly supporters of libraries. 
Here is presented an unusual opportunity for organizing new libraries 
wherever they may be needed and for improving existing libraries in 
relation to the national standards for public library service.

LIBRARY PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICE ESTABLISHED 

A vigorous public relations program for libraries on both a national 
scale and through community projects will have its basis in the recently 
established Public Relations Office of the American Library Association, 
with Len Arnold as Public Relations Director. 

Purpose of the office is to develop and carry forward a continuous 
program of public relations activities in behalf of libraries and librarian- 
ship, and increase understanding and support of the American Library 
Association's aims and objectives by professional and lay persons in 
the library field, in fields related to libraries and by the general public. 
Its objectives are wider acceptance of the library as an important social 
institution; increased use of library materials and services; greater public 
support for libraries; higher status for librarianship. 

Among the functions of this office is that of giving direct service to 
local library public relations endeavors through consultation, and 
through issuing such materials and conducting such activities as may 
be developed by ALA public relations units. "We beHeve," Mr. Arnold 
reports, "that an effective Public Relations unit would establish library 
pubhc relations on a par with other areas of library service and would 
be a wonderful working force to deal with the concerns that will 
always be with the profession. . . . This is a challenge to . . . every 
librarian who recognizes the importance of public relations as an essen- 
tial program requirement in good librarianship ... to every trustee 
and friend of the library ... to educators and to publishers ... to 
all who believe in the idea that the library is a social institution, vital 
to the people in a free society." 

For further information, you may address the ALA Public Relations 
Office at 50 East Huron St., Chicago 11, Illinois.

services to gain varied professional experience and sufficient competency 
to advance to the next higher level of Librarian IL Employees in the 
latter class perform more difficult professional library work in any phase 
of library activities, without close supervision.

raise to $376 after completion of the six-month probationary period and 
a raise to $395 after an additional year of satisfactory service. When

LIBRARY WORKSHOPS AND INSTITUTES 

STATE LIBRARY'S 1956 WORKSHOP REVIEWED 

As evidence that the field of interlibrary cooperation is being con- 
tinuously explored and effectively developed throughout the state, the 
participants and entire consultant corps for the State Library's spring 
workshop on "The Mechanics of Public Library Cooperation" recon- 
vened in San Diego just prior to opening of the CLA Conference on 
October 30. Reports were presented by every "team" from that work- 
shop, and general discussion followed on progress made from the time 
the cooperative programs were developed during the meetings in Sacra- 
mento (the week of March 24-29) and the present. 

Programs have been developed in centralized cataloging for a group 
of neighboring libraries, in-service training for employees in libraries 
throughout an area, joint purchasing of books for a city and county 
library, expanding services and bringing into closer relationship a group 
of small city libraries affiliated with a county library. A number of other 
cooperative programs are still in the developmental stages but with 
strong incentive for implementation of plans evidenced by librarians 
who participated in the 1956 workshop. 

Barbara G. Boyd, State Library Consultant, assisted Dr. Ed Wight, 
who had served as director of the March workshop, in assembhng sets 
of the final working papers from the "teams." These and the oral reports 
made, following dinner, were the basis of general discussion. It was 
decided that these papers would not be distributed to any other than 
the workshop participants and consultant staff. As further developments 
can be reported in the cooperative projects, supplementary papers may 
be prepared by the teams of librarians and distributed to members of 
the group by mail. Further meetings are not planned for all the work- 
shop participants, however. The workshop itself was reported in the 
July, 1956 issue of News Notes of California Libraries. 

WORKSHOP ON THE SCHOOL LIBRARY 
Mrs. Mary Peacock Douglas, one of the nation's leading school library 
authorities, will direct a one-week workshop at San Jose State College 
from June 18 to 22, 1957, according to an announcement released by 
Dora Smith, head of the Department of Librarianship. 

The one-credit course, entitled "Pattern for Progress," will stress 
problems currently confronting school librarians. Many prominent west 
coast school library figures will assist Mrs. Douglas during the week's 
program. 

Persons desiring more detailed information on the workshop may |

WORKSHOP ON ADULT EDUCATION 
Dates have now been set for the Workshop on Adult Education in 
the spring of 1957. The CLA Adult Education Committee is planning 
it for April 4-5 in Fresno, California. This will immediately precede the 
annual meeting of Yosemite District, CLA, planned for April 6 in Visalia. 
Further information will be made available from the California Library 
Association office at 829 Coventry Road, Berkeley 7. 

CONFERENCE ON PUBLIC LIBRARY DEVELOPMENT 
"New Directions in Public Library Developments" will be the subject 
of the Twenty-Second Annual Conference of the University of Chicago 
Graduate Library School, to be held June 19-21, 1957. Outstanding 
authorities in the field of public administration, public finance, urban 
development and related fields will join distinguished speakers in the 
field of librarianship to discuss emerging problems in public librarianship. 
It is especially appropriate that the Conference be devoted to prob- 
lems facing the public library at this particular time. Special attention 
will be paid to implications of the new standards for public library 
service and the new Library Services Act. Problems which will arise 
in meeting the standards and implementing the act will be seen against 
changes in the society which affect a pubhc library in all of its aspects. 
Papers will be presented on changing community patterns and other 
sociological factors involved in library planning, on the plans which are 
being submitted for support under the new Library Services Act, on 
problems of support for the changing library, implications for library 
personnel, and the effect of the changing society on the collection, on 
services, and on public library programming. 

A leaflet describing the detailed program of the Conference will be 
available soon upon request. For further information address the Dean 
of the Graduate Library School, University of Chicago, Chicago 37, 
Illinois. 

INSTITUTE ON PLANNING LIBRARY BUILDINGS 

Tentative plans are being laid for the 1957 workshop or institute 

under State Library sponsorship to be held in Sacramento the week of 

} March 18. The planning title is "What to do until the architect comes." 

It is expected that a program to cover lectures and group discussions 
over a period of four or five days v/ill be developed in the field of 
planning for small public library buildings, both for headquarters and 
community branches. Resource persons will include an architect, an 
interior decorator and librarians with outstanding experience in planning 
library buildings, according to preliminary outline for the institute. 

State Librarian Carma Zimmerman feels that this type of program is 
essential to meet the needs of hbrary officials in the innumerable com- 
munities throughout California where new library buildings are under 
I consideration. During the past four years the State Library has held 
annual workshops or institutes on subjects of major importance to the 



280 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

library development of the state, and with outstanding leadership for 
the sessions. When plans have been more fully crystallized for the 1957 
program, announcements will be sent direct to the city and county 
public libraries. 

SYMPOSIUM ON SYSTEMS FOR INFORMATION RETRIEVAL 

The School of Library Science of Western Reserve University, in 
conjunction with its Center for Documentation and Communication 
Research, will present on April 15, 16, and 17, 1957, the nation's first 
comprehensive demonstration of systems presently in use for the organi- 
zation, storage, and retrieval of recorded information, together with a 
symposium on information handling problems and techniques. 

Co-sponsor of these activities is the Council on Documentation Re- 
search, a group recently formed by representatives of organizations in 
government, industry, and education for the stimulation of effective 
cooperation among those who produce, organize, and use information 
of all types in all fields. 

An outgrowth of the Conference on the Practical Utilization of 
Recorded Knowledge held in Cleveland last January, this three-day 
program will bring together 20 or more information systems devised 
or adapted by their users to meet specific problems. Machines needed to 
make the presentations most effective will also be demonstrated, but the 
emphasis is to be on working systems. Verner Clapp, Director of the 
Council on Library Resources recently formed by the Ford Foundation, 
will discuss the role of foundations in documentation research. 

Further information may be obtained from: Jesse H. Shera, Dean, 
School of Library Science at Western Reserve University, Cleveland 6, 
Ohio. 

INSTITUTE ON PUBLIC LIBRARY ARCHITECTURE 

The School of Library Science of the University of Southern Cali- 
fornia will hold an Institute on Public Library Architecture on April 
25-26, 1957, the two days preceding the Southern District CLA meeting. 
The School of Architecture of USC and practicing architects will meet 
with librarians who have planned, and with others who are currently 
planning, library buildings, to discuss the following topics: The modern 
library building and its functions; Accepted principles of library plan- 
ning, preplanning and developing a program; Architect and technical 
advisory service; Elements that enter into the picture— location and site, 
cost, contracts, etc.; Analyses of recent library plans. 

The Institute will be held in the Art and Lecture Room of the USC 
Library, Los Angeles. For further information write to Dr. Martha Boaz, 
Director, USC School of Library Science.

FIELD SERVICES 

The fourth annual Workshop sponsored by the State Library was 
held in Sacramento March 24-29, 1956. The topic "Mechanics of Public 
Library Cooperation" brought together eight teams (of from two to five 
Ubrarians each) prepared to concentrate for six days on working outi 
the practical details of their individual cooperative efforts. Areas ofi 
cooperation worked on included: centralized ordering, centralized cata- 1 
loging and processing, cooperative in-service training, problems of affili- I 
ation, reciprocity and joint acquisitions planning. Under the able leader- 1

ship of the Director, Dr. Edward A. Wight, Professor of Librarianship 
of the University of California School of Librarianship, each team not 
only developed tentative plans for practical action, but also gained 
valuable suggestions from the frank general discussion, as well as a better 
general insight into the state of public librarianship in California. 

In anticipation of the passage of the Library Services Bill (which did 
pass both houses of Congress) the State Librarian, Assistant State Li- 
brarian and the Field Office staff met several times with a committee of 
northern California Hbrarians (Mrs. Helen Dambacher, Dorothy Dor- 
land, Dorothy Drake, Elizabeth Eubank, Esther Mardon, Frances Mur- 
phy, Frances Schacht) to discuss principles and to consider methods of 
i demonstrating library service to best advantage in areas without service 
1 or with inadequate service. 

i With the appointment of the third Library Consultant in May, 1956, 
i some reorganization of work occurred in the Field Office. Addition of 
j a second Intermediate Typist-clerk position made it possible to assign 
i one clerical assistant to the Editorial Librarian in July, 1956, and the 
I other to the Library Consultants. The Salary Information service was 
I then turned over to the Editorial Librarian, and plans were set in motion 
I to increase the number of libraries which receive and contribute salary 
i information by this means. The employment referral service was turned 
I over to one of the Library Consultants, and a tentative division of con- 
I sultant services, according to field of specialization, was made— to be 
operated within the necessary limitations of time and personnel. These 
j changes were made in accordance with a general policy for field work 
I adopted during the year. 

During the year the Editorial Librarian and the Photocopyist handled 
a special project of copying on microfilm the file of original annual 
I reports from California city and county public libraries, covering the 
j period 1904-1953. Then the manuscripts, which filled about 20 vertical 
file drawers, were transferred to the graduate School of Librarianship 
of the University of California, Berkeley. There they will be used for 
special research and will be available for use of visiting librarians along 
with other professional literature that makes up the Library School 
Library. The State Library file of public library annual reports from 
1954 to date is maintained in manuscript form in the Field Office. 

TECHNICAL SERVICES 

Work proceeded during the year on converting our Periodicals Section 
records to the more extensive serial record. All shelflist cards for serial 
items were transferred from the Catalog Section to the Periodicals Sec- 
tion and the latter section began to send bound volumes directly to the 
stacks after adding to its records, thus bypassing the Catalog Section 
completely on routine additions. 

In January, 1956, the policy for ordering sets was established. A 
standing order for the entire set is now placed automatically when the 
first volume is ordered, unless the volume is specifically recommended 



286 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

as a separate. This, together with the increased control of claiming 
provided by the serial record, will gradually abolish the gaps in sets 
which occurred so frequently in the past. 

During the year, 24,313 cards representing Sutro collection author 
entries were filed into the main catalog. A change of policy was adopted 
for books being cataloged for the Sutro Branch, also. Prior to this year, 
Sutro Branch books were cataloged for the State Library and then sent 
on time loan to the branch. Now such books are being cataloged for 
Sutro, the time loan file is being abolished, and duphcate sets of cards 
are being sent to Sutro for their card catalog. 

A new property control system was devised, to satisfy State regula- 
tions, which has affected our withdrawals and gift procedures. This 
system is based on an evaluation of the collection price-wise. Under it, 
all purchased books are written onto the records at the price paid and 
gifts are hsted at the current price. When books are lost or withdrawn, 
they are written off at the original price paid for each title. For the 
purposes of this property record, the State Library collection was 
evaluated at $4,380,277.14 as of January 1, 1956. 

We began gathering information on our microfilm holdings of news- 
papers and began reporting these to the Library of Congress Microfilm 
Clearing House late in the year. 

We first began to mimeograph catalog cards in February, 1955, mime- 
ographing only those for which L.C. cards did not arrive within a 
specified time limit. Early in 1956 we began to place L.C. card orders 
at the same time as the book was ordered. Continuing studies were made 
of the costs of this operation during the year, taking into account the 
availability of L.C. cards and L.C. proofslip information at the time of 
cataloging. We found that the State Library had proofslips or copy in 
the L.C. printed author catalog for approximately 65% of our acquisi- 
tions at the time the books arrived for cataloging. We also found that 
L.C. cards were costing us about 3 %. cents per card on our orders, 
whereas we could mimeograph cards for about 3 Yz cents per card. As 
of July 1, 1956, therefore, we are mimeographing all of our catalog cards 
with the exception of titles represented in a limited number of scholarly > 
series for which we still have standing orders for L.C. cards. 

READER SERVICES 

A long range plan was developed in the Government Publications 
Section for the integrated and systematic handling of serials and peri- 
odicals comprising plans for a unified serials record, revised cataloging; 
procedures and revised accessioning procedures. Certain aspects of this 
plan were put into effect during the 1955-56 fiscal year: cataloging pro- 
cedures for serials and periodicals were revised and systematized; policy ' 
rules to implement the making of decisions on the analyzing of mono- 
graphic series were developed; the provisions for review of new serial i 
titles and serials analyzed in part were systematized; a special process i 
slip for the cataloging of serials was developed; revised policies on types i 



VOLUME 52, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 957 287 

of binding for periodicals were put into effect and a revision of binding 
records was made. 

A detailed manual was developed in the Government Publications 
Section for the use of the intermediate typist clerks in typing checklist 
cards defining the various types of cards to be typed and describing the 
form in which the cards are to be typed. Rules and procedures for all 
cataloging done in the Section were revised and systematized. A long 
range plan for the improved handling of exchanges was worked out and 
exchanges were placed on a more formal basis. 

The "Selected Readings" lists were further developed by the Adminis- 
trative Legislative Reference Service during 1955-56 and, in cooperation 
Y\ith the Training Division of the State Personnel Board, an advisory 
committee representing state agencies was chosen for each subject de- 
veloped. Lists were issued during the year in the fields of supervision, 
letter writing, report writing, records management, communication, 
organization and management and interviewing. These lists are dis- 
tributed to state agencies by the Training Division and are on file at 
the State Library also. Presentations of the new program of "Selected 
Readings" were made to the State Accounting Ofiicers, Deputy Direc- 
tors Conference, Personnel Officers Council, and the State Training 
Officers by the Principal Librarian, Reader Services and the Supervising 
Librarian of the Administrative Legislative Reference Service. 

Members of the Reference Section, Administrative Legislative Ref- 
erence Service and the California Section, in cooperation with the Field 
Services, compiled a purchase list of books for the Nevada City Public 
Library for a memorial gift presented to the Nevada City Library by 
Alvin C. Richards. 

The California Section and the Reference Section made a one month 
survey of the use of newspapers in the State Library. It is to be followed 
by a more extensive survey in 1956-57. The California Section surveyed 
the geographical location from which users of that Section come and 
found that 108 California communities were represented; Arizona, 
I Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, 
Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, Oregon, 
Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin were repre- 
sented from outside California. The foreign countries represented were 
England and Israel. 

A major shift was made of the books in the Law Section, both in the 
stack area and in the Law Reading Room, to allow for expansion. In the 
course of reshelving, about 1/3 of the Law Section collection of 100,000 
volumes was moved. 

The duplicate exchange program of the American Association of Law 
Librarians continued, with the Law Section of the State Library taking 
an active part in that program. Through this exchange program the 
Law Section has filled in periodicals sets and has sent out most of the 
duplicate periodicals of the Section. 

The backlog of appellate briefs in the Law Section was examined; 
those belonging to cases reported were inserted in the bound briefs; those 



288 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

where no report was made of the case were discarded. The appellate 
briefs and records on appeal are now being bound on a current basis. 

During the year the Law Librarian conducted two class sessions in 
the use of law books for students from the Sacramento State College. 

Among the exhibits in the Prints Room during 1955-56 were Northern 
California Arts, 8th annual graphic and decorative arts exhibit by local 
artists; Prints by modern American and European artists lent by the 
Prints Club of Philadelphia; In Memoriam exhibition of etchings and 
drawings by Nicholas Dunphy; the 36th annual exhibition of the Print 
Makers Society of California; Annual exhibits of the Prairie Print 
Makers; Prize prints of the California Society of Etchers, a gift from 
the Society to the State Library; the Sierra Camera Club's 20th Anni- 
versary Show; an international exhibit of color prints from the George 
Binet Collection, Brimfield, Massachusetts; and the fourth annual exhibit 
of the Sacramento State College Prints Group and Fine Art Crafts. 

Supplementary service to other libraries has followed much the same 
pattern as to quantity as in preceding years. The work of the Reference 
Section, however, indicates a more careful screening of requests sent 
in by the borrowing libraries. Fewer requests are received for the simpler 
subjects while much more emphasis is placed on the technical, abstract 
and more difScult subjects. This is, of course, the type of service that 
the State Library is best equipped to supply. The local service provided 
by the Reference Section turned largely to patrons active in civic activi- 
ties during 1955-56. Much research work has been devoted to the prob- 
lems of the local civic theater and to local television programs. 

Significant progress was made in developing the "Round-trip Argo- 
nauts" file at the Sutro Branch. Cards in this file give information on 
49ers from the Midwest who came to California, stayed for a year or 
two and then returned to their homes. This file is expected to be an 
adjunct to the Haskins Argonauts of California file. Included in the 
"Round-trip Argonauts" file is information that is found on the person's 
stay in California. The sources for this information are the county his- 
tories in the Sutro Branch collection. In addition to services to patrons 
from California and from states outside California, the Sutro Branch 
Library served patrons either through personal visit or by mail in 
Mexico, Chile, Scotland, England and Canada.

QUARTERLY NOTES 

CLA AND COUNTY LIBRARIANS 

The State Librarian, ex officio chairman of the CaKfornia County- 
Librarians, presided at the official annual meeting in San Diego on 
October 30. Program for the all-day conference and details on staff 
participation are reported elsewhere in this issue. 

Fourteen members of the State Library administrative and super- 
visory staff (Blasingame, Cox, Dalton, Sinclair, Boyd, Hope, Oathout, 
Murray, Dillon, Altman, Mills, Mumm, Irwin, Sanders) joined Mrs. 
Zimmerman in participating in the annual conference of the CaKfornia 
Library Association, also at San Diego, October 30-November 3. Miss 
Murray was installed as Second Vice President of CLA for 1957; Miss 
Lee and Mr. Mills were elected Secretary and Vice President, respec- 
tively, of the Northern Section of the College, University and Reference 
Librarians Section of CLA for the next year. 

Mrs. Zimmerman and Mr. Dillon were included as guests at the 

November 1 dinner meeting of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association 

of America, Southern Cahfornia Chapter, in the U. S. Grant Hotel. 

The State Librarian told of the function of public libraries in our society, 

stressing aims for extension of library service to provide the maximum 

scope of material to the greatest number of people. She also described 

rare holdings of the Sutro Library in San Francisco that would be of 

j primary interest to antiquarians, and Mr. Dillon answered questions 

j about this important material. Mrs. Zimmerman was a special guest at 

I a number of other meetings during the conference week, too. 

Miss Boyd and Miss Hope took part in the program of the CLA 
'Audio- Visual Committee, the latter presenting a paper written by Mrs. 
I Simpson, who was unable to attend. Miss Mumm, Mr. Dillon, Mr. Cox 
jand Mr. Mills participated in meetings of the CLA Committees on which 
jthey hold, membership. 

Mrs. Zimmerman and Miss Murray participated in the CLA Executive 
Board meeting November 3, and that afternoon Miss Murray attended 
the orientation session for the 1957 CLA officers. 

There were many library visits in connection with staff travel to and 
from the San Diego conferences. Mrs. Dalton and Misses Boyd and 
[Hope, with the County Library conference guest speaker, Carol Trim- 
pie, inspected the San Clemente and Laguna Beach Branch buildings in

Ridgecrest Branch in Kern County, Bishop Branch in Inyo County, 
Bridgeport headquarters for Mono County Library, and they made a 
"rolHng tour" of Alpine County and its county seat, Markleeville— the 
last of these being the only county in Cahfornia with no pubhc Ubrary 
service at all. 

1956 WORKSHOP 

At a dinner meeting in the U. S. Grant Hotel, San Diego, on October 
30, progress reports were made by all participants in the State Library's 
March, 1956 workshop, who had reconvened for this special purpose by 
prior agreement. Also attending were the workshop director. Dr. Ed 
Wight of the U. C. School of Librarianship, Mrs. Zimmerman, Aiisses 
Boyd, Hope, Murray and Sinclair, Mr. Cox and Mrs. Dalton, the re- 
source persons for the workshop from the State Library staff. 

It was shown that, with guidance furnished during the spring work- 
shop program on "The Mechanics of Public Library Cooperation," 
eight teams of city and county librarians have developed and put into 
operation cooperative projects on in-service training of personnel, joint 
purchasing and processing of books by two or more libraries in an area, 
and other means of using public library funds and personnel to greatest 
advantage. 

This is encouraging evidence that the field of interlibrary cooperation 
is being continuously explored and effectively developed throughout the 
state. The State Library consultants have spoken at initial meetings of 
several Hbrary groups about services and facilities available from the 
State Library for augmentation of the interlibrary cooperative projects. 
During her term as President of the California Library Association, 1955, 
Mrs. Zimmerman had announced that the program for CLA and the 
State Library would be to encourage by all good means a two-fold 
program— the strongest possible local effort by individual libraries to 
improve their own institutions, and to improve library service as a whole 
by fostering library cooperation. To quote from a preliminary statement 
of the revision of Postwar Standards for Public Libraries, "Libraries 
working together, sharing their services and materials, can meet the 
full needs of their readers." This cooperative approach on the part of 
libraries is the most important single recommendation of this document. 

OTHER TRAVEL, TALKS, HAPPENINGS 

Mrs. Zimmerman is a member of the advisory committee which is 
assisting in planning and prosecution of the study of book selection and 
book retention in Cahfornia pubhc and school libraries, reported else- 
where in this issue. The project director, Marjorie Fiske, was in the 
State Library and at the Department of Education October 17, looking 
over materials available for the study. She is using the State Library file 
of cUppings on censorship, book selection pohcies and the like. 

In connection with the Geddes Committee hearings in the Capitol 
November 29-30 (reported elsewhere in this issue), the State Librarian 
and several members of the staff worked with the CLA Legislative 



VOLUME 52, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 957 291 

Committee, the CLA Library Development and Standards Committee 
and the State Legislative Counsel staff on preparation of bill drafts for 
proposed legislation concerning California libraries and for consideration 
by the 1957 session of the State Legislature. The "CLA Legislative Link" 
of November, 1956 listed "Piecemeal Legislative Proposals Approved 
by CLA for 1957," legislation affecting public library service and legis- 
lation affecting the State Library. In connection with the last, it has been 
the practice through the past half century for the State Library to 
collect and disseminate information on California libraries as part of its 
program of state-wide library development. Slight changes are proposed 
in wording of several sections of the California Education Code, par- 
ticularly, to make uniform and specific the items related to date for 
submitting annual library reports, scope of those reports, designation 
of responsibility for their submission, specific destination State Library 
rather than just Department of P^ducation. The State Librarian outlined 
several other proposals affecting the State Library, too, including pro- 
visions clarifying authority for the establishment of regional library 
service centers, for instance. 

Mrs. Zimmerman was a special guest at the luncheon meeting of the 
CSEA Institute on Government in Sacramento October 19. Miss Rocca, 
Mrs. Wimberly, and Mrs. Ruiz served as committee members for the 
two-day sessions, and Mrs. Altman and Miss Ashley also attended. Miss 
Rocca and other officers of CSEA Chapter 2 were interviewed over 
KBET-TV on October 20 about the institute. 

The Yosemite District Public Relations Committee meeting in Visalia 
on November 9 was attended by Mrs. Zimmerman, on her way to 
Bakersfield for the November 10-11 annual conference of the School 
Library Association of California. She is an honorary member of the 
latter organization, was a special guest at the banquet session, where 
Assemblywoman Dorothy Donahoe was speaker on the subject of "The 
Seventh Flute." 

On November 14 Helen Blasdale, President-elect of Golden Empire 
District of CLA, met here with Mrs. Zimmerman and the Consultant 
staff to develop preliminary plans for the annual district meeting in 
Davis next April 27. 

Fourteen members of the staff attended a dinner meeting of that 
CLA District on the University campus at Davis the evening of Novem- 
ber 16. 

Mrs. Zimmerman participated in Department of Education Executive 
Staff meetings November 27 and December 18. Mr. Ottley substituted 
for her at the October 30 meeting. 

She and Miss Boyd drove north with Dr. Ed Wight December 2-4 
to meet with county officials in Lassen, Plumas and Modoc Counties 
regarding county library relationships of the present and proposals 
for the future. Dr. Wight presented findings of his recent survey of 
Lassen and Plumas County Libraries, made at request of the Boards of 
Supervisors of those two counties.

294 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

of that committee held October 29 in the California Institution for 
Men, at Chino. Chief business was the discussion of professional per- 
sonnel needs and standards for the state correctional institution libraries. 
Then the Assistant State Librarian proceeded to San Diego to par- 
ticipate in the County Librarians and CLA conferences. 

Following his participation in two days of the Western Regional 
Conference on the Library Services Act, the Assistant State Librarian 
went to Susanville to speak on November 13 to members of the 
Northern Section, California County Supervisors Association. That 
Saturday morning session provided another opportunity for the State 
Library to present to county supervisors throughout the state essential 
information on California plans for a five-year demonstration program 
of library service with federal funds, under provisions of the Library 
Services Act. 

Members of the State Library administrative staff are working with 
a representative from the California Attorney General's office on legal 
provisions and the U. S. Office of Education regulations as they affect 
California participation in the federal program for development and 
improvement of pubhc library service in rural areas. They have also 
had frequent consultations with the Personnel Board, Department of 
Education and Department of Finance on matters of state personnel 
and financial regulations and arrangements in relation to federal fund 
project proposals for California under State Library planning and 
supervision. 

The California State Library was host to the Western Regional 
Conference on the Library Services Act in Sacramento October 11-13. 
One representative from Hawaii and Alaska and two from each of the 
eleven western state library agencies, including Mrs. Zimmerman and 
Mr. Blasingame as representatives and Misses Boyd, Hope and Sinclair 
as recorders, met with three officials from the U. S. Office of Education 
and the head of the Washington Office of the American Library Asso- 
ciation. This was one of four conferences throughout the nation for 
briefing and consultation on details of regulations and procedures under 
which proposed projects are to be submitted for approval and operated. 

Since then, as indicated above, the California State Library staff has 
devoted extensive time and energy to development of the Cahfornia 
plan. Its submission to Washington, D. C. for official approval, alloca- 
tion of funds ($40,000 limit to June 30, 1957) and activation were heldi 
up pending receipt from the U. S. Office of Education of final regula-i 
tions for operation of the federal demonstration projects. These included i 
the Guide for Submitting a State Plan and the necessary forms, all of i 
which had to be cleared for distribution by the Department of Health, i 
Education and Welfare and Bureau of the Budget and appear in the 
Federal Register. Ralph M. Dunbar, Chief of the Library Services 
Office, has announced appointment of John G. Lorenz, effective Janu- 
ary 1, 1957, as Assistant Director of the Library Services Branch. 
Mr. Lorenz, formerly on the staff of Michigan State Library, will be

Miss Swain has consented to revise her Notes Used On Catalog Cards, 
published in 1940 by ALA, for production of a second and revised 
edition as an ALA publication in 1957. This useful list of examples is 
still used for training in a number of large libraries and so continues to 
have a good sale each year, we are told. 

As the first of a series of tours arranged for Miss Lee and Mrs. White 
to visit map collections in the Sacramento area, they went to see the 



296 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

U. S. Corps of Army Engineers holdings on October 17. Purpose of 
the visits is to acquaint them with map collections and map issues of state 
and federal agencies that are significant for research. 

Miss Mumm, Mr. Dillon and Mr. Pike attended the September 28 
meeting of the CLA Regional Resources Coordinating Committee at

Room. Haskell, now living in Sacramento, is the son of the late, noted 
etcher Ernest Haskell. 

Mr. Cox reports that at the beginning of 1956 the Library of Con- 
gress printed catalog of books was changed to a printed National Union 
Catalog, showing geographic locations for all cataloged titles. In Octo- 
ber, following a conference between members of the State Library 
staff and a representative of the Library of Congress, the State Library 
began sending, for inclusion in this national printed catalog, a card for 
each new title cataloged for the State Library collection. In addition 
to pubhcizing our unique holdings, this will assist materially in inter- 
Hbrary loan operations throughout the state, Mr. Cox believes. 

An outright transfer of materials from the State Library to Sutro 
Branch has been made to eliminate extensive files of time-loan records. 
This includes most of the collection on genealogy and other items suit- 
able to the Sutro Library. Mr. Dillon notes that the Sutro catalog is 
having its subject entries built up very satisfactorily, and advancement 
in processing rare materials in the Sutro Library includes complete cata- 

i loging to replace what was formerly only simple listing for numerous 

I items. 

Through arrangements made with the Department of Special Collec- 

I tions at U.C.L.A., the State Library was able in November to have 

I taped copies made of the wire recordings which the CLA Library 
History Committee produced several years ago. This valuable addition 

) to our Californiana collection covers recollections of early day Cali- 
fornia librarians, of particular interest in relation to testimony on the 

\ contributions of James L. Gillis to librarianship in this state and on 
pioneering in library organizing. The State Library has two other such 
recordings in the field of California library history, one of a talk by 
Judge Peter Shields and one of the remarkably fine talk made by Dixon 
Wecter during the Sacramento conference of CLA, just prior to his 
death. 

Mrs. Simpson, on a cross-country vacation trip in September, talked 
with Donald G. Patterson, Chief of the Division for the Blind, when

been formed with Mr. Cox as chairman and the Principal Librarian— ■ 
Reader Services and a Library Consultant as members. Their monthly \ 
meetings, to be attended by the Editor of the Union Catalog, will be 
to make policy recommendations and to advise on procedures and opera- 
tions where they affect State Library policies or service. 

The new cover for News Notes of California Libraries was designed 
by Mr. Blasingame. (Isn't it lucky librarians know how to type!) Hisi 
typed sample for the cover design was enlarged by photostatic copies.

LAW MATERIALS OF GENERAL INTEREST 

Mary K. Sanders 
Supervising Law Librarian, California State Library 

This selection of current materials added to the Law Section of the 
State Library will call your attention to items of general interest on 
various aspects of law. The titles were selected on the basis of general 
reader interest, and so do not include technical legal treatises of concern 
only to lawyers. The books listed may be borrowed on interlibrary loan 
through the California State Library. 

American Bar Association. Standing Committee on Legal Assistance for 
Servicemen. Compendium of laws relating to proble?ns of persons in the 
Armed Forces. 3d ed. Rochester, N. Y. Published for the American Bar Asso- 
ciation by the Lawyers Co-operative Pub. Co., 1954. 1358 p. 

' This study contains a statement of the laws of each state relating to property, 
wills, descent and distribution, marriage and divorce, minority and taxation. It also 
has distinctive forms of each state, and is annotated to American Law Reports 
and American Jurisprudence. A good reference source for any library with serv- 
icemen or their dependents as patrons. 

American Medical Association. Lavs^ Dept. Proceedings, viedicolegal sym- 
posiums; Chicago, III., October 9, 1955; Omaha, Nebr., October 16, 1955; New 
York, N. Y., October 30, 1955. Sponsored by Law Dept. and Committee on 
Medicolegal Problems, American Medical Association. Chicago, 1955. 151 1. 
These series of joint meetings were held to demonstrate how lawyers and 
doctors could work together more effectively. The broad areas covered were 
medicine's contribution to the administration of justice; mutual medicolegal prob- 
lems as viewed by each profession; and a demonstration showing a medical expert 
witness under proper and improper courtroom conditions. 

Brand, George E., Comp. Bar Associations, attorneys and judges; organization, 

; ethics, discipline. Chicago, American Judicature Society, 1956. 1074 p. 

For the first time in one volume the bar has the canons of professional and 
judicial ethics, rules for admission to the bar, criminal statutes relating to mis- 
conduct or unauthorized practice of law for aU 48 states and the territories of 
Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. It includes not only statutory material, but 
court rules as well. 

Callison, Israel P. Courts of injustice. New York, Twayne Publishers, 1956. 
775 p. 

This book is an indictment of our state courts for their failure to mete out 
equal justice to all, a condition essential to the preservation of democracy. The 
author's picture of our administration of justice has crowded calendars, under- 
manned staffs, astronomical costs as the rule not the exception. He points to the 
diminishing role of the trial judge to a mere impotent referee. Whatever truth 
there may be in his words should be studied with great seriousness by the Bench 
and Bar of our land and constructive proposals made and reforms enacted. 

Commerce Clearing House. What you should know about the military reserve; 
helpful facts for employer & employee. Chicago, 1956. 64 p. 

Explains the military reserve acts, military leave pohcies and practices and state 
laws on reserve training duty. The language is not technical. Should prove a very 
useful handbook for anyone still having a military obligation and for aU em- 
ployers. 

Council of State Governments. State court systems. Rev. 1956. A statistical 
summary prepared for the Conference of Chief Justices. Chicago, 1956. 1 v. 
(Its BX-306) 

Has many tables including salary, retirement, election, terms, qualifications, and 
removal. It is a compilation of tables only, has no text or evaluation, and no 
citations to authority.

cago, 1956. 62 1. 

The term "constant dollar" is the determined purchasing power of the dollar 
using 1947 as the basis. The constant dollar tables are used to show the actual 
increase in governmental revenue and expenditure rather than the total dollars 
collected and spent.

port to the Governors' Conference. Chicago, 1956. 153 p.

(The James Sprunt studies in history and political science, v.37) 

Nicholas, Margaret. A manual of copyright practice for writers, publishers, and 
agents. 2d ed. New York, Oxford University Press, 1956. 273 p. 

Not designed for use by a lawyer or even a law student, but for the average 
author, editor, agent, and permissions department for quick reference to specific 

. situations involving copyright. One bit of advice that the author stresses is, on 
cases of infringement, or other problems of legahty, see a lawyer. 

Nussbaum, Louis M. Law for the hom.eowner, real estate operator, and broker; 
your rights as a homeowner. New York, Oceana Pubhcations, 1956. 96 p.

ership. 

Oleck, Howard L. Non-profit corporations and associations: organization, manage- 
ment, and dissolution. Englewood Cliffs, N. J., Prentice-HaU, 1956. 460 p. 

Very useful for clubs, labor unions, and all other non-profit organizations. It 
gives reasons for incorporation or non-incorporation, forms for incorporating, 
duties of officers and directors, powers of management, and dissolution. It is not 
directed to the lawyer as such, but is written in understandable language for the 
usual group organizer or officer. 

Ploscowe, Morris, Ed. Ma?2ual for prosecuting attorneys. Introd. by Frank S. 
Hogan. New York, Practising Law Institute, 1956. 2 v. 

A short manual to acquaint a prosecutor of aU the types of crimes, how to 
collect and preserve the evidence, scientific aids available. It includes digested 
articles by noted authorities with citations to where these articles may be read 
in fuU. These two small volumes are abbreviated handbooks and serve only as a 
starting point. 

Regan, Louis J. Handbook of legal medicine, by Louis J. Regan and Alan R. 
Moritz. St. Louis, Mosby, 1956. 201 p.

Rhyne, Charles S. City attorneys and their salaries, a study of the duties and 
responsibilities of the city attorney in modern municipalities as compared with 
his compensation; by Charles S. Rhyne and Jack M. Merelman. Washington, 
National Institute of Municipal Law Officers, 1956. 53 p. (National Institute of 
Municipal Law Officers, Washington, D. C. Report no. 144) 

This report is a new effort to present the salary discrepancy in such a way 

that municipalities wiU recognize it as a serious handicap and be stimulated to 

early action on City Attorney compensation. Salary data is of 1955. The authors 

. feel that the salary formula should place a premium on experience and long 

tenure in a job which suffers immeasurably from constant turnover. 

St. John-Stevas, Norman. Obscenity a?id the law. With an introd. by Sir Alan 
P. Herbert. London, Seeker & Warburg, 1956. 289 p. 

For the most part this book is devoted to the English experience with censor- 
ship, but it has chapters devoted to censorship in the United States to the sup- 
pression of horror comics and pornography. The author feels that the law should 
be invoked to suppress pornography, but should leave hterary expression to be 
determined by prevailing standards of taste. It should draw a fundamental dis- 
tinction between works written with a serious purpose and those which have no 
other aim save the making of money by exploiting and degrading the reader. 

Society of Medical Jurisprudence, Ne^v York. Papers delivered before the So- 
ciety of Medical Jurisprudence, 1942-1950. Gustave J. Noback, editor. Chicago,

vention program, and the atomic bomb effects on the human body.

practicing lawyer. It contains annotated forms, checklists, practical suggestions on 
what should and should not be done, summaries of applicable substantive law, 
procedural guides and chapters on emotional problems of divorce and conciHa- 
tion procedures. It makes very frequent reference to Armstrong's California 
Family Law. Though it has no index, the table of contents serves well in this 
respect, since it is quite detailed.

H. Wu. New York, Sheed and Ward, 1955. 287 p.

LIBRARIAN'S CHOICE OF CALIFORNIA 
STATE PUBLICATIONS 

Mrs. Amelia White 
Government Publications Section, California State Library 

This selection is of California State publications issued during October, 
November and December, 1956, which we think every Hbrary will find 
useful. For a complete list of publications issued by California State 
agencies see California State publications; a quarterly list, issued by the 
Documents Section, Printing Division, California Dept. of Finance. 
These publications may be obtained by libraries from the State Super- 
visor of PubUcations Distribution or from the issuing department. Priced 
items are distributed by the Supervisor of Documents Distribution until 
the supply is exhausted. Thereafter, they must be purchased from the 
Documents Section of the Printing Division. The State Library does not 
distribute the publications listed below. 

California. Citizens' Advisory Committee to the Attorney General on Crime 

Prevention. 
California jails; report to Edmund G. Brown, Attorney General of California. 

Sept. 12, 1956. 70 p. 

Does California's jail system as it presently exists operate to achieve rehabilita- 
tive objectives? This study of county and city jails suggests many practical and 
reasonable ways to improve the local jails of our state. It deserves careful study 
and consideration by public officials and private citizens. 

California. Dept. of Education. 
Business education in action; preparation graduates need for their first jobs in 

business. Oct. 1956. 39 p. (Its Bulletin, v. 25, no. 8) 

Public high schools and junior colleges in California are studying the effective- 
ness of their business education programs by analyzing the success of recent 
graduates in obtaining and holding their first jobs. From these studies have been 
determined the skills and personality traits which employers desire their employees 
to possess, as well as the ratings given to their jobs and training by the graduates 
themselves. Schools and colleges can use this study to advantage in keeping their 
business education courses abreast of business practices and job requirements. 

California. Dept. of Natural Resources. Division of Beaches and Parks. 
D. L. Bliss and Emerald Bay State Parks. [1955] folder. iUus., map. 

Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. [1955] folder, illus., map. 

Palomar Mt. State Park. [1955] folder, illus., map. 

The last quarter has seen the publication of revised editions of descriptive 
folders for three state parks. That on Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is of 
particular interest as this grove of Coast Redwoods was possibly the first one in 
the United States to be preserved for public enjoyment, although it did not 
become a part of the state park system until 1953. Palomar Mountain is, of course, 
nationally famous as the site of the world's largest telescope. 
California. Dept. of Public Health. 
Hospital nursing care of mothers and babies. Revision of: A guide to nursing 
care for maternity patients and newborn infants in hospitals, 1950. 1956. [35] 
p. nius.

use in California hospitals, as well as other new methods recommended by the 
American Academy of Pediatrics. Nursing students and teachers wiU welcome 
the looseleaf format, pre-punched for a three-ring binder, as well as the page of 
selected references. 



306 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

California. Dept. of Public Works. Division of Water Resources. 
Survey of mount ainous areas. Dec. 1955. 150 p. illus. fold, maps (part col.) 
(Its Bulletin no. 56) $5.00 plus tax. 

With elevations ranging from 100 feet to more than 13,000 feet above sea level 
the historic Mother Lode region experiences wide variations in topography. This 
survey, embracing almost 6,000 square miles, was made to determine present and 
ultimate water utilization and the planning of reservoirs and distribution systems. 
Librarians will find here, however, much more than information on water needs, 
as the handsome and detailed maps of land utilization, soils, hydroelectric facili- 
ties, etc., are capable of extensive reference use beyond their immediate purpose. 
California. Disaster Office. 

The big flood, California, 1955. [1956] 126 p. illus., fold. col. map. $1.56, post- 
paid, including tax. 

While certainly not the first description of the floods of December, 1955, this 
is by far the most comprehensive, since it carries the account through the rescue 
and relief stages on into the rehabilitation work. The final chapter reviews the 
disaster operations and contains recommendations condensed from the views of 
the Disaster Office staff and of some 100 civil defense directors in the flood area. 
Dozens of dramatic photographs and a large colored map of the affected areas 
complete an unusually interesting publication. 
California. Disaster Office. 

Suggested disaster operations chart for the city manager or the chief administra- 
tive officer, by Robert O. Bailey, city manager, Chico. Reprinted from West- 
ern city magazine. [1956 7] p. 

Throughout the recent flood emergency Robert O. Bailey was in charge of 
disaster operations in his own city and also on loan to Yuba City. With these 
experiences fresh in mind he drew up this chart, which has received extensive 
distribution by the California Disaster Office. Practical, step-by-step instructions 
for the three stages of emergency work, "advance preparation," "when disaster 
strikes" and "preliminary mop-up" give the city administrator in capsule form the 
information he needs to prepare for and meet natural and defense emergencies. 
California. Governor's Committee on the Study of Boxing and Wrestling. 
Report. [Published by Dept. of Professional and Vocational Standards] Aug. 9, 
1956. 181 p. 

Mounting public criticism of conditions in the administration of boxing and 
wrestling in California led to the appointment, on June 6, 1955, of a study and 
investigating committee which now presents its report and transcripts of some 
of the hearings upon which the report is based. No less than 72 abuses and viola- 
tions of the rules, regulations and statutes were found, many of long standing. 
The report and the committee's recommendations will interest all concerned with 
clean sport. 
California. State College, Fresno. 

The physical sciences and a professional career. [Nov. 1956] 19 p. illus. (Its 
Bulletin, v. 11, no. 1) 

Feeling a responsibility to encourage high school students with appropriate 
aptitudes to enter training for the scientific and engineering fields, Fresno State 
College has prepared this attractive, illustrated booklet. It briefly describes the 
scope of the physical sciences and the training needed to prepare for various 
scientific careers. While based on the physical science program at Fresno State 
College, it would be useful to students considering scientific training at any 
college or university. 
California. State Compensation Insurance Fund. 
Safe driving rules and practices. [1956] 15 p. 

Here is a handy refresher in the principles of good driving which most of us 
could read with profit. Placing emphasis on smooth driving, it stresses the prin- 
ciples of driving defense, alertness to accident hazards and to the lack of skill 
and knowledge on the part of other drivers.
