Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBR1DGE HERALD Wednesday, November 1, 1972 Media centre well slocked University library has volumes By nON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer There are probably several zillion words contained in the hundreds of thousand of books, periodicals and newspapers in the University of Lethbridge li- brary. Chief Librarian Don Wick, who oversees the million complex which is spread over three floors of the U of L main buJIding, estimates there are v o 1 u m e s in the main collection. There is also a reserve col- lection, government documents and book catalogues to comple- ment the main collection. In addition, (he library re- ceives newspapers from all over the world including the New York Times, London Times and Pravda. The 27-member library staff includes seven librarians, 16 as- istant librarians and four me- dia personnel. Air. Wick, who speaks in Hie hushed tones expected of li- brarians, says (he library makes about loans a year, mostly to students and faculty members. However, anyone may take out a membership in the li- brary. "We have about 200 outside says Mr. Wick- have the same privileges as a student, except that ihey cannot use the reserve collec- tion." Most books in the library arc in the 56-510 range but, Mr. Wick said, it is not uncommon to spend for a single vol- ume. One of the most expensive facels of the library operation is the media centre. George Berg, media co- ordinator, estimates the value of the video equipment at be- tween and with audio equipment being valued at Mr. Berg said the centre has C6 tape recorders, 17 film projectors and 20 overhead pi o- jectors included in its reper- toire. "They are in constant he said. There is also a complex video tape and film system which can pump programs into any class- room on the sixth level. The system can also record activi- ties in one classroom for dis- tribution info other classes. This new system has been operational since late Septem- ber. Several hundred word tapes and about classical rec- ords augment the audio sys- tem. During September, 460 lesson Many new educational devices are available in the curriculum laboratory. Action urged for Taber nursing home By JOE MA all three nursing homes have The nursing home patients said Dr. Clair Nortc Herald Staff Writer capacity admissions. and candidates in Lethbridge a Raymond physician who By JOE MA Herald Staff Writer "We should do something about it right Don Le- Baron said. "Otherwise we wuuld find ourselves in the same situation as it was a year ago." Mr. LeBaron was one of the amalgamated hospital board members who thought the re- quest by Taber representatives {or a nursing home in their community should be given more than lip service support. The situation he indicated Is getting near to what it -was be- fore the Southland Nursing Home opened its doors last February. Andy Andreachuk, the hospi- tal district administrator, said the waiting list of nursing borne candidates stood at 25 at mid-October- The opening o! the 150-bed SNH boosted the city's nursing home beds to 309, nearly twice as much as before. The other two nursing homes In Leth- bridge Edith Cavell Nursing Home and Devon Nursing Home have 100 and 59 beds respectively. The waiting list was lor all three Institutions, which means all three nursing homes have capacity admissions. A nursing home vacancy Is possible only in the event of death or moving away of a pa- tient already there. As more people grow older, the waiting list is certain to grow larger unless additional facilities are built, The Herald was told. The nursing home patients and candidates In Lethbridge include a substantial number of those from the surrounding areas, and the Taber request said if a nursing home is avail- able there, many would not come here. "The waiting list in Leth- bridge does not tell the true sit- LCC opens class doors for samplings of its courses Southern Alberta residents will have an opportunity this weekend to taste a free sample of offerings at the Lethbridge Community College. The Weekend College starts Friday evening and continues through Saturday. More than 100 courses will be opened to the public who may wander in and try them out at their leisure. Some of the courses to be of- fered include: agricultural fi- nance, soil-testing, beef grad- ing, drafting, journalism, radio announcing, law enforcement, social counselling and data pro- cessing.

Library plans being prepared Working drawings for the new library are expected to be completed by the end of the year with the construction job going to tender early in 1973. Construction c-f the 51 miiiion building, planned for the north end of the old Central School property, should get under way in late February or Mareh. said Dr. Clair Norton, a Raymond physician who Is also trying to get a nursing home in his community. "Many would-be patients in Raymond do not want to stay in a Leth- bridge nursing home." Taber and Raymond are re- questing nursing homes with 75 and 60 beds respectively. The amalgamated hospital board has a standing commitment to 'iret develop a nursing home in Taber, which has a larger pop- ulation than Raymond. At last month's hospital board meeting where Taber re- newed its request, nothing con- clusive was reached despite the urging by Mr. LeBaron and a [ew other board members. The board said it would the matter- JUSTIFICATION The board's reluctance to go ahead may be justified in view of the tight money situation. Neil Crawford, minister of health and social develop- ment who has the final say also has to consider the list of priorities and the fact that the Lethbridge district already has one of the highest ratios in the province: four beds per population as against the pro- vincial average of three beds per But the Letribridpe district a planner of the Oldman Rivei Regional Planning Commission pointed out, is an "Oldman Region" for many people to re- tire into. programs were transmitted to the listening area which is ad- jacent to the main control room- When exams are on, the number usually jumps to 700- BOO programs per month-. The library also has access to books throughout the world through its i n f e r-lihrary loan ilcpartment. KESEARCH Dagmar Bennett, the depart- ment head, said, the main pur- pose of the department is to ob- tain tools for faculty members involved in research projects. Although the university deals mainly wilh the universities in Calgary, Edmonton and Van- couver, they also go far afield in search of books. Moscow University exchanges books with the U of L, as do universities in Ireland, England and Australia. MANY REQUESTS "We process about 300 400 requests a month, mainly from said Mrs. Bennett. "The general public ;nay also use ths service, in exceptional ises." The curriculum laboratory, [ocated on the fifth level, Is used primarily by education stu- dents. In addition to background and resource material rleated o teaching, the lab also has a number of educational games wliich a student teacher may sorrow. The service is also available .0 any teacher in the area who wants U> have a close look at new education books and de- vices before them for the classroom. EVERY BOOK Mary Craig, the departmen- al assistant, said UK library ries to have every book on the caching curriculum in Alber- ta available to the students. One of the library's prize pos- sessions, said Mr. Wick, is records of House of Commons debates dating back to 1841, even before Canada became a nation- "These have been donated to he university, piece by Mr. Wick said. "There are still a few volumes missing." DONATIONS Book donations are an impor- .ant source of material for the library. "We receive both public and private Mr. Wick said. "Donations are restricted somewhat. It has to be some- thing t lat is suitable to the li- brary's development." The library is constantly keeping track of new publica- tions which may be of value to the university. Mr. Wick said almost half of the library's budget is used to purchase materials. The library budget is about 10 per cent of the entire univer- sity budget. "Our main objective is to ;erve the university's pro- he said. "We are doing that fairly adequately now and it will improve as time goes on-" STILL SELLING FOR LESS! STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd Street S.

"Last night was the first Hal- lowesn night in a long time when we didn't have to answer at least one false fire call or fight one small prank- ster set said Chief Rus- sell. One of the emergency phone operators at the fire hall said last night was the quietest Hal- loween he could remember for the past 24 25 years. A total of 16 pranks were re- ported to the city police last night (17 pranks were reported last Of those re- ported one was unfounded, three involved egg tlvowing, one involved tomato throwing, another w a t c r balloon throw- ing, and the rest consisted of spray can painting, fire crack- ers and minor theft. The most costly p7ank occur- red when a passenger in a white Volkswagen threw an egg at the windshield of an oncom- ing car driven by Lyle Vogcl of 1125 22nd St. S. The force of the raw egg's im- pact smashed the Vogel ve- hicle's windshield causing 550 damage. Meanest Drank of the night occurred when Linda Kish, 1009 7th Ave. S., left her door unat- tended for only a few moments ard returned to discover some- one had entered her home and siolen all of her Halloween candy. Most colorful prank resulted when another city resident re- ported someone had spray painted all four hub caps on his car.
