an expense and be able to represent
Tarleton at all away football gaines

Library personnel seek student opinions

Students are finding the library
continually more advanced in
reference materials. The library now
has 12 book computer terminals and
one DATA Base (Info-Trac) and
library personnel are constantly
looking for new ways to update and
TheTibrary will be adding a few
new terminals on a 60 day trial basis,
probably beginning this week.
One of these is a Database called
ABI/inform. It is a business database
which indexes the current five years
of 800 business magazines. This
new, though temporary, addition to
the library has many advantages for
the business-oriented majors at
One of these is called Boolean
Searching. This search feature
allows two terms to be entered and
connected with the terms arui, or, or
The terminal will relieve students
from much of the leg work of
magazine research. It combines all
indexes, has incredible speed, gives
an immediate print out of selected
references, and is updated monthly.
Despite the many hours that this
database can save students, univer-
sity librarian Kenneth Jones has
doubts that the database can be kept
once the 60 day trial is up.
"The lease costs $5000 annually
and I see only one way that the
library can possibly retain this
valuable equipment," Jones said,
' 'That is if students are willing to pay
a minimal fee." (He estimates a
quarter for 15 minutes.)
Jones asks that students let the-
library know how they feel about this
proposal by contacting Harvey
Cover, librarian II, at 968-9455 or
the J-TAC at 968-9057.
"Access to this service would be
a valuable addition to the library,"
The other database being receiv-
ed on trial is Newspaper abstracts.
This indexes many major
newspapers including The
Washington Post, The Christian
Science Monitor, The New York
Times, The Boston Monitor, and The
L.A. Times among others. Unfor-
tunately there are no Texas
newspapers included. It would also
be necessary to charge a fee for this
service if it were retained at school
expense and student input is needed
to assist Jones in making the final
• Other recent library additions in-
clude five microfische/microfilm
reader printers. These new machines
use the dry process printing techni-
que (like a regular copier) and the
quality is excellent. They are already
in operation and the price of the
copies has been lowered to a nickel.
"A student now pays only a nickel
for any type of copy in the library,."
There are three relatively new
book terminals on the third floor
against the south wall. By the begin-
ning of the fall semester, three more
should be added along the north wall
of the same floor.
"Beginning tentatively in the fall
of '89, terminals will also be
available in other buildings," said
Library Schedule For Finals
With finals approaching, the
library will, as always, adjust its
schedule. Doors will remain open
until midnight every night preceding
an eight o'clock final.
During the break before summer
session begins, the library will cut
its hours back to 8-12 and 1-5
weekdays only. >
