The subtitle for this in-house journal is "a publication for alumni and friends of The Ohio State University College of Education." Greg Bown, director of communications of the College and Editor of Discovery wrote about his trip to North Carolina and Hurricane Bertha and Hurricane Fran eventually getting around to his interest in this journal, but try as I might, I couldn't get his drift. . . something about the hurricanes made him appreciate more the ties between what we care about and what we know and seek to know.

This is not a particularly exciting journal, but it seems that OSUL could do a better job of keeping up with campus publications. Of the six years (through 2002), it only has 3 issues, according to the record.

Tracings was the official newsletter of the Ohio State University Libraries from 1986-1990. Its theme was "bringing together the University Libraries and the academic community," and its aim was to be both informative and instructive. The first issue had an update from Director William J. Studer on the collection, the archives, preservation, automation, user education and a plan for expanded physical facilities. Jill B. Fatzer, Assistant Director, explained the Main Library reorganization. Brief articles expanded on some of these topics, including a story about preservation by Sally Sims which included a photo of Wes Boomgaarden and Harry Campbell, whom I just saw last Thursday in a tour of the new Technical Services Building on Kinnear Road. Noelle Van Pulis submitted an article on "direct access to LCS" from home and office, which was quite innovative then. Soon, books will be the unusual item in libraries.
