*From the Latin motto inscribed over the north portal of the Government & Social Science Information Service (the former Loan Hall) in Doe Library: Bene Legere Saecla Vincere, "To read well is to master the ages."

The Library is pleased to announce that William T. '52 and Ruth Moosman Hart '53 have made a magnificent addition to their unitrust that will ultimately benefit the University Library. Structured to be used at the discretion of the University Librarian, these important funds will enhance the Library's ability to develop, manage, and preserve its diverse collections.

The Bancroft Library was delighted to receive from the Tides Foundation, upon the recommendation of the Pohaku Fund, a gift to support the Regional Oral History Office's work documenting the history of the farm labor movement in California. Dolores Huerta, co-founder and first vice president of the United Farmworkers Union, will provide the project's initial oral history.

The Charlene Conrad Liebau Fund for the Social Sciences Collection was established through the generosity of Charlene Conrad Liebau '60. It is her desire that income from this endowed fund serve as support for the UC Berkeley Library in furthering the University's mission of teaching and research in the social sciences. We are thrilled that Mrs. Liebau, a trustee of the UC Berkeley Foundation, has chosen the Library to be the recipient of her farsighted generosity.
