How does a library acquire materials that are not available by purchase, publications for which commercial vendors are unreliable,
or collections that can be assembled only with the collaboration of another academic institution? How can commercially available
publications of academic institutions be acquired at minimum cost? At Berkeley, these challenges have been successfully met
for more than a century by means of the Library's Exchange Program. Established in 1884, the Program now counts more than
3,000 active exchange partners and accounts for the acquisition of 20% of the serials currently received by the University as well
as more than 5,000 monographs every year. Exchange partners can be found in nearly every country of the world and supply
publications in virtually every subject area collected by the Library.
Between January 16 and March 31, 2001, the Library's Exchange Program is the subject of an exhibit in the Bernice Layne Brown
Exhibit Gallery of the Doe Library. Displays are organized both by country of origin and by subject matter. Publications displayed
confirm the importance of Berkeley's Exchange Program in the development and maintenance of our outstanding scholarly and
Library staff who contributed to the exhibit include Elena Balashova, Phyllis Bischof, Simon Bockie, Frank Carothers,
Yong Choo, John Creaser, Carlos Delgado, Katie Frohmberg, Jean Gibson, Jean Han, Yuki Ishimatsu, Ann Jensen,
Shayee Khanaka, Norma Kobzina, Suzanne McMahon, AnnMarie Mitchell, Virginia Shih, Jim Spohrer, Allan Urbanic,
Camille Wanat, Peter Zhou, and Kathleen Zvanovec-Higbee.
The exhibit was developed by Phyllis Bischof and Frank Carothers, and owes its striking final form to Phyllis and to Cathy Dinnean.
Photography Exhibit at the Bioscience Library
Employee Development and Training
The Marian Koshland Bioscience and Natural Resources Library is pleased to
announce the opening of an exhibit of photographs by Mark Moffett.
Mark, an ecologist, ethologist, and frequent winner of World Press Awards
in journalism, was a doctoral student of Edward O. Wilson. Mark's
research on tropical forest canopy biology is based at the Museum of
Vertebrate Zoology in
the Valley Life Science Building. The vertebrate faculty makes allowances
for his passion for ants, possibly because the behavior of these
insects give them the status of "honorary vertebrates." Mark's articles
commonly appear in National Geographic Magazine, where he is one of the
Seventeen of Mark's large-format color photographs are currently on
display in the Bioscience Library. We hope you will come by to see these
