____2 _CHEMICAL LITERATURE Spring 1973
Treasurer's Report - Kaback
A written report was issued and Dr. Kaback
summarized it for attendees. Chemical Literature
remains far and away the largest expense
item and is approaching in size the total DCL
annual revenue. Patricia McDonnell noted that
we should not be too concerned because of our
reserve. The committee will continue to keep
an eye on Chemical Literature costs.
The question of bonding and signatory
power was discussed. Stuart Kaback suggested
that the Treasurer and Chairman should have
signatory power for checks and that both should
be bonded. A motion to this effect was made,
seconded and passed. Stuart Kaback will contact
the bank concerning the matter.
Tony Petrarca raised a question concerning
additional costs, such as telephone charges.
It was agreed that the budget should have provisions
for covering such charges.
Chairman Elect - Rush
Dr. Rush submitted a budget for 1973 which
included an estimated $2,765 of income and
$2,970 in expenses, for a forecasted deficit of
$205 for 1973. The proposed budget was adopted
by the committee.
Secretary - Granito
Charles Granito noted that the Executive
Director had accepted all of the by-law amendments
that had been passed by the division prior
to the spring meeting.
A new ballot covering an additional proposed
amendment was included in the fall issue
of Chemical Literature.
Assistant Secretary - Park
In the absence of Margaret Park, Stuart
Kaback reported on the latest membership counts.
DCL presently has 836 members (82 new) and 142
associate members (22 new). This represents a
modest increase over the preceding year. The
total includes eight people whose dues were
deferred because of unemployment.
ASIS Liaison - Leundar
Judith Leondar submitted a written report
and summarized it for attendees. Special note
was made of the fact that ASIS held its first
midyear regional conference in May 1972. The
success of the meeting was attributed to the
informal structure of the sessions.
It was noted that there was nothing on
tile Counc il Agenda that required DCL to take
a specific position. S. Tauber asked Ben Weill
to write a statement on the copyright meeting
for tile Executive Committee.
Nominating Committee - Gelberg
Alan Gelberg announced that Charles
Granito was elected Chairman-elect and Judy Davis
was elected Treasurer for 1973. It was noted
that this will create a vacancy in the Secretary's
position on January 1 and that the
Executive Committee will have to select a
Program Committee - Petrarca
Dr. Petrarca noted that the Structure
Activity Symposium to be chaired by Paul
Craig, originally scheduled for the Fall 1972
meeting, was postponed. All other sessions
were as planned. For the Chicago meeting
(Fall 1973), topics include comparative
studies of services and trends in evolving
literature. The Program Committee recommended
that DCL not participate in the 1975
meeting in Mexico. A motion to this effect
was passed by the Executive Committee. The
next national DCL meeting will be held in
Columbus, Ohio, March 14 through 17. It will
not be the first conference-type meeting held
separate from a national ACS meeting by DCL.
Topics include: Information problems, feedback,
suggestions to problems; Information
centers, small organizations, suppliers;
Information research, universities, large
industrial organizations, and government
agencies. The meeting will be made up of
interactive type sessions with speakers
serving as discussion leaders.
SLA Liaison - Friedenstein
Hanna Friedenstein noted that SLA members
were especially interested in thle planned
Columbus meeting and may supply some speakers.
Herman Skolnik noted that the Journal of
Chemical Documentation was receiving only a
small number of papers from DCL members. Stuart
Kaback asked if non-DCL members are routinely
contacted for membership. Apparently, this has
not been done regularly, but should be consi'dered
by the Membership Committee as another
means of adding to our ranks.
James Rush gave a report on Chemical
Literature. Net cost for the year will be
Information Science Abstracts - Conrad
Dr. Conrad provided a written report and
summarized it for attendees.
Production costs continue to rise faster
than subscript ions and there may have to be a
price increase in 1973. Mrs. J. A. Dauville
was hired as Assistant Editor in Marchl 1972.
Information Science Abstracts is presently
sponsored by SLA, ASIS, and DCI. An attempt is
being made to involve other organizations --
ACM, for example.
Crane Award Committee
Bob Maizell noted that tile Crane Award
Committee is scheduled to meet in Dayton in
October 1972 to help resolve the status of
tile Crane Award.
