Administrative/Biographical History

In 1967 the Idaho State Library Board adopted the recommendation of Idaho's Advisory Council on LSCA (Library Services and Construction Act) Title III to make the first project in interlibrary cooperation the compilation of a union list of serials and newspapers in major Idaho libraries. It was hoped to include all college and university libraries, and public libraries in college towns. The list was to be in catalog form, printed from IBM cards. The model for this compilation was the Idaho-WSU union list of serials which accounts for the folder of that material being included in this manuscript group. The coordinating committee for the project consisted of Helen Miller, Merle Wells, Paul Conditt, Rex White, Fred Keller, George Stultz, and Robert Ensley.

To supplement the larger Union List of Serials in Idaho was a shorter volume, the Idaho Union List of Serials, which listed only those serials published within the state of Idaho. A supplement to the Union List was published in 1973, and four copies of a new, unauthorized, second edition combining the first list and the supplement were printed in 1974.

The material in this group was divided into four series. The first, or correspondence series includes letters about the serial holdings of the participating libraries and the status of the project. Also included is a mimeographed publication "Closing the Gaps" listing new periodical subscriptions and back files at the University of Idaho Library. The second series consists of bound printouts and the third of unbound printouts. The bound printouts received in 1991 comprise the fourth series. Original folder headings have been retained throughout.
