Organization and Management of Government Documents: An Investigation With Special Reference to the University of Waterloo Libraries.
Crusz, Rienz W. G.
A study was made on a reorganization of the holdings of government documents in the University into a separate collection. On the basis of evidence presented in the course of the study, depository status for all Canadian Federal Documents for the library, and a separate documents division to control and service them was recommended. The arguments were more related to the logic of future developments, rather than the existing conditions that prevailed. If the use and size of government documents could be stabilized at present levels, then the expertise of a documents librarian, without the device of separation, should prove sufficient. The evidence from projections, however, was more than compelling, and even if some element of speculation in these projections was accepted, broad trends of academic development on the campus have been irrevocably set. To this extent, the development and control of government documents on the lines recommended seem inevitable. (Author/AB)
