Reports of the standing committees were presented.
Dr. Benson, Chairman of the Nominating
Committee, announced the results of the recent election
of officers. Dr. Petrarca, the newly appointed
Chairman of the Program Committee, reported that
only one symposium is scheduled for the spring Boston
meeting, while 2-1/2 days of general papers are scheduled.
Three symposia are still scheduled for the
New York meeting next fall. Dr. Petrarca also reported
on the activities of the Membership Committee. The
committee has revised the membership application
form and has designed a form for members to use in
recommending names of prospective new members.
These forms will be printed as inserts in a fall issue
of Chemical Literature. Dr. Rush, Editor of Chemical
Literature had suffered from a slight delay with
the printer. He expects to issue a special issue later
in the fall. Dr. Rush made a plea for more news
items from Division members. He plans to include
abstracts of papers presented at regional meetings. In
the absence of Mrs. Margaret Graham, Dr. Rush reported
on the activities of the Continuing Education
Committee. It was suggested that, as a first step, the
Division might consider compiling a list of educational
aids already available. Dr. Ramsay's audio cassette
course on how to use CA will be made available commercially.
Papers presented at meetings this week
are being taped as an experiment.
Dr. Carleton Conrad reported that a push is
being made to make Information Science Abstracts
more timely and to improve the quality of abstracts.
There are 1063 subscriptions to ISA this year; the
goal is 1400.
In Dr. Broome's absence, Margaret Hicks read
the changes in Bylaws recommended by the Bylaws
Committee. These amendments will be voted upon by
the membership in a ballot to be printed in a special
issue of Chemical Literature this fall.
The Chairman announced that the Executive
Committee had decided to hold a meeting at the ACS
Conference Center facilities in the spring of 1973 instead
of participating in the national meeting at Dallas.
Dr. Maizell reported other highlights of the Executive
Committee meeting held on Monday evening. Dr. Tauber
will appoint a representative to Special Libraries
Association. The Division wants to interface more with
Chemical Abstracts Service, the ACS Awards Committee
for the Crane Award, and the Dayton Section for the
Patterson Award. In response to an invitation presented
by Miss Patricia McDonnell, the Division will cooperate
with the World Intellectual Property Organization
in publicizing and promoting an International Conference
on Patent Information Retrieval which WIPO hopes to
sponsor in the fall of 1973.
Dr. Tauber, the incoming Chairman, urged that
the Division continue the kind of experimentation in
which this Division has pioneered, citing especially the
efforts of Dr. Karl Heumann in organizing the well received
meeting-in-the-round at Chicago last fall. Dr.
Tauber announced new committee chairmen as follows:
Miss Margaret Park, Chairman of Membership Committee,
together with her duties as Assistant Secretary;
Dr. Anthony Petrarca, Chairman of the Program Committee;
Miss Judy Davis, Chairman, Long Range Planning
Committee. Dr. Tauber closed his remarks by
asking members to volunteer to serve on Division committees
of interest to them.
About 40 persons were present at the business
meeting, which usually has an attendance of 20 to 25.
The meeting adjourned at 5:12.
