OTHER

When cataloguing a video this month, Eirene Landon needed the subject heading Asian Canadian women, which was not established in LC or NLC. At Heather Fraser's suggestion, she sent an e-mail to David Farris, the editor of Canadian Subject Headings, with her request. By the next day, there was a reply from David, that he would establish the heading for CSH and that it

would subdivide geographically. He asked if Eirene she had consulted CSH on the

Web and she was happy to tell him she had that it is linked on our Technical Services web page for easy access.

On October 27, Tiffany Wells, a Library Techniques student from Seneca, doing her practical work in SMIL, spent part of the afternoon with Eirene Landon, being shown our cataloguing routines, the Yorkline catalogue and inputting a record, and the cataloguing tools we use, both off-line and on-line. On November 2, she was given another session with members of Bibliographic Services, Monograph Acquisitions and Serials and Electronic Acquisitions and was shown acquisitions routines, on-line searching for cataloguing copy, and physical preparation of books. Our thanks are extended to Susan Stent, Linda Smith and Sandra Smith for giving their time and sharing their expertise.
