H. L. Reynolds. The symposium being planned
for the New York meeting, September 1968, is
Needs for Chemical Information, C. Rice. To
date, no plans have been made for symposia
for the 1970 spring meeting in Canada.
The chairman of the Membership Committee,
A. Gelberg, discussed plans of his Committee,
including writing a letter tO each new member
to welcome him to the Division and to active
participation in Division affairs.
The Committee discussed the need and ways to
improve the Division bulletin. It was voted
to furnish Photocopy Service on only those
Division papers presented before 1963.
B. Montague reported for C. Conrad that the
Pilot Dues Collection Study with the National
ACS Office has proved successful. The services
have been free to the Division during
the experimental stages, but the ACS will begin
billing the Division in January 1969, at
the rate of $1 per member for the following
services: creating and maintaining a master
membership file; billing and collecting Division
dues as a unit of the ACS membership
dues, billing and collecting with automatic
follow-up billings when necessary; transferring
funds to DCL two times per year; supplying
printouts of names amd addresses of DCL
members as of April and October first each
year; supplying to DCL amd National ACS the
DCL membership count as required by the ByLaws;
and handling routine correspondence
concerning DCL membership and dues, informing
or referring to DCL as may be desirable. Dr.
Conrad's report compared an approximate ACS
billing of $1000 favorably with DCL out-ofpocket
costs of $200 and services worth about
$2700 volunteered by members for 1965/66^
Although Dr. Conrad's Committee was authorized
to comment further on the cost to ACS,
Dr. Clark pointed out that the charge is firm
and cannot be negotiated. Dr. Clark expressed
the thanks of the Committee to Dr. Conrad,
Miss Montague, and Dr. Keatha Krueger, the
Assistant Secretary, for their close cooperation
with the ACS in dealing with all of the
many problems which arose in the pilot stage.
In the report of the Procedures Manual Committee,
which was read in his absence, H. M.
Koehler stated that a revised Manual had been
distributed to members of the Executive Committee
for their comments.
The Committee declined an invitation to the
Division to affiliate with a Council of Communication
Societies. It also voted reconsideration
of our AAAS affiliation. Dr. Clark,
in answer to a question, stated that the Division
is entitled to receive archival copies
of Documentation Abstracts to be filed by the
Secretary with the Division's archives.
After some discussion, it was decided that
the DCL mailing list may be made available to
other professional societies of similar objectives
with the understanding that such cooperation
must be reciprocal. It was agreed

that DCL should not permit individuals or institutions
to use our mailing list to solicit
enrollment for courses or for any commercial
promotion. Miss Davis suggested that these
decisions be incorporated in the Procedures
The Chairman reported that he has appointed
E. Maizell as the DCL Liaison Representative
to the American Society for Information Science.
In L. Starker's absence, Miss Montague
gave a brief report on the status of Documentation
It has been proposed that the name of the
Division be changed to Division of Chemical
Information or Division of Chemical Documentation.
To do this, it will be necessary to
submit the question to a vote of the members,
have the name change approved by the ACS, and
processed by the ACS Committee on Divisional
Affairs. Since the membership has not had an
opportunity to study the question, action was
deferred until after the Business Meeting.
The Committee voted to announce the availability
of the Division's Titles of Papers in
Chemical Literature and other suitable media.
The Committee decided to distribute copies of
Bibliography on Abstracting and Indexing free
at national meetings.
