(2) a proposal that the Journal list those papers
submitted to it for consideration, these papers to be
available from the Photocopy Service, and (3) the suggestion
that an indication be given in the proposed revision
of the "Titles of Papers" of those papers which
are available from the Photocopy Service.
The Executive Committee recommended a change
in Bylaw V, Section l(a), details of which are given
elsewhere in this issue.

There was not too much interest in continuing the
present Speakers Bureau. It was decided, instead, to
set up a new committee, possibly called the ACS Section
Liaison Committee, which would work with the
larger ACS local sections in trying to set up local
chemical literature divisions, such as has recently
been organized by the Delaware-Philadelphia Section.
The idea of a pocket program for divisional meetings
was dropped as something which was not needed
by the Division.
A communication from Dale Baker of the Chemical
Abstracts Service was considered, which mentioned
the possibility of the discontinuance of the "Bibliography
of Chemical Reviews," because of its low circulation.
Mr. Baker asked for ideas and comments from
the Division as to what can be done to help bolster its
circulation. The Editor of the Journal of Chemical
Documentation agreed to bring this problem up in a
future issue of the Journal.
The problem of standardized terms and definitions
in the field of chemical literature and documentation
was discussed. The Chairmanwill contact the American
Documentation Institute to see if a joint committee
with this group might be set up to work on this problem.
A new committee on Awards and Recognition was
authorized, with Robert J. Kyle as Chairman, this
Committee to investigate possible ways of providing
recognition of individual literature chemists.

BUSINESS MEETING MINUTES
Washington, D.C. March 22, 1962
The Treasurer's report was presented, as well
as reports of the Program Committee, Membership
Committee, and Committee on Chemical Documentation.
The Secretary then presented the report of
the Executive Committee meeting, excluding those
items which had been covered by the preceding reports.
There was considerable discussion of the question
of whether or not the Division should schedule
three meetings for 1963. A motion from the floor
was made and seconded that the Division attend the
Los Angeles and New York meetings only, and not
the Cincinnati meeting, and that this motion be an
expression of interest not binding on the Executive
Committee. The motion was defeated by avote of
24 to 16. The Chairman stated that he will discuss
the problem of three meetings ayear withACS headquarters
to get clarification of the objectives and
purpose of this new arrangement; the Executive
Committee will then be guided accordingly. The
suggestion was made that the three-meeting-peryear
system might be tied in with the training course
program mentioned by the Program Committee (and
covered in more detail by the Executive Committee
minutes), i.e., one meeting per year might be devoted
entirely to such training, courses.
The question was raised as to the percentage of
papers submitted to the Journal of Chemical Documentation
which were rejected. The Editor stated
than this percentage ranged from 0 to 50%.
