Nation-Wide Rationalization of Acquisition Policies in Canadian College and University Libraries Are Total World Coverage and Non-duplication of Resources Part of an Impossible Dream? by John R. T Ettlinger( Book )

6 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canada has an especially difficult information problem since an enormous proportion of the publications required by Canadian researchers are produced in foreign countries. The attempt to solve this problem by a numerological or Farmington Plan approach is wrong both in theory and practice. This method emphasizes size and discounts selectivity. Library collections should not be evaluated by the quantity of material in a subject field, but rather by the quality of the material. Much published material is simply a restatement of facts or theories already known; therefore, the use potential of material should be considered rather than straight quantity. Several government reports have tried to evaluate Canadian resources but have failed because a more sophisticated breakdown of information is needed. Massive deficiencies and massive unnecessary duplication still exist in Canada partly because of irresponsible use of standing orders and approval plans. Academic libraries cannot be self-sufficient. With federal assistance, collecting responsibilities based on subject breakdowns should be rationally assigned on a regional basis, taking into account the individual strengths of the libraries. (JG)

Inside Lincoln's White House The Complete Civil War Diary of John Hay by Michael Burlingame( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

10 percent of Hay's 1861-64 entries. Not only did the Dennett edition omit important parts of the diaries, it also introduced some glaring errors. More than three decades ago, John R. Turner Ettlinger, then in charge of Special Collections at the Brown University Library, made a careful and literal transcript of the text of the diary, which involved deciphering Hay's difficult and occasionally obscure writing. In particular, passages were restored that had been canceled, sometimes heavily, by the first editors for reasons of confidentiality and propriety. Ettlinger's text forms the basis for the present edition, which also incorporates, with many additions and much updating by Burlingame, a body of notes providing a critical apparatus to the diary, identifying historical events and persons
