by a couple of weeks. We had not expected that the volume of requests would make this economically justifiable until perhaps the second year of the service and that it would be implemented later. The network channel is already in operation, and the BLLD is already connected into it. CRL's procedures and format program are already partially developed and presenting no problem. However, it may be another two to three weeks before the system will be fully operational,
For this reason the ('enter will not be ready to accept requests for articles under this service until mid-July. As soon as possible we will send an announcement to all members giving a precise date for beginning the service. ( Requests for journals and other materials from the Center's own collection may of course continue as at present.)
Second, in order to try to insure that the initial volume of requests does not flood the Center, with consequent delays in service, the initial limits of coverage will be as follows:
A. The service will be limited only to full members and associate members offering the Ph.D degree in two or more fields. These are the only member institutions that are yet actually paying an increased membership fee to support this service.
B. Eligible member libraries (see A) may request from the Center articles from any journal in science, technology, and the social sciences with an imprint date of 1970 or later, with the exception of articles appearing in journals dealing primarily with clinical medicine. Clinical medicine is defined as being addressed primarily to the practice of medicine on humans, or to research on medical problems of humans. In general all journals with titles of medical specialties (e.g., urology, enterology, optholmology, surgery, etc.) are regarded as medical titles. Journals in fields basic to medical practice we regard as not being clinical medicine if the field is taught in departments outside medical schools (e.g., psychology, psychiatry, pharmacology, botany, mycology, parasitism, bacteriology, public health, etc.).
( Requests should be submitted only to fill requests for the library's own students and faculty. Requests should not be submitted to fill the needs of researchers and other institutions.
D. Requests should be submitted to fill current research needs. Requests should not be made for photocopies needed merely to fill in missing pages from journals held by the library unless those pages are needed for current research by a student or faculty member.
II. FOR MORE INFORMATION
As mentioned above, detailed information on JAS format and request proce. dures will be sent to you shortly. The Center's staff is devoting a good deal of time to developing this program and we are optimistic that by mid-July we will have an efficient and rapid means of filling your needs for journal articles in the fields of science, technology (except medicine) and the social sciences published from 1970 forward.
The Center will have a suite in the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco during the ALA Conference. You will have to ask the Information Desk at the St. Francis for the number of the suite. It will be listed under the name of Ray Boylan. We will have CRL staff members there ready to discuss JAS and any other aspects of the Center's operation during the following hours:
Sunday, June 29, 2:30 PM to 8:00 PM.; Monday, June 30, 9:00 AM to 7:00 P.M.; Tuesday, July 1, 9:00 A. J. to 7:00 P.M.; and Wednesday, July 2, 9:00 A.M. to 7:00 PM
The staff members who will be in San Francisco are Esther Smith, Acquisi. tions Librarian; Susan Lery, ('írculation Librarian and Ray Boylan, Assistant Director.
If you would like to have meetings in the suite with one or more of these people either during the hours above or afterwards, contact Ray Boylan at the St. Francis. We would especially welcome meetings with librarians from several institutions working at similar jobs to discuss their experiences in using the (enter. Remember that in asking for the suite number, it will be in the name of Ray Boylan. If you are in San Francisco and have a few spare minutes, drop by it only to say hello.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS
COPYRIGHIT PROPOSAL Introduction
While we hesitate to come to the Subcommittee at this juncture with a new proposal for cable copyright liability, we believe the time is ripe for broadcasters to make known the present concerns of the industry with respect to copyright as it appears to have taken shape today.
For broadcasters the critical issue is not whether cable should be subject to copyright but rather, what kind of copyright liability will be applicable. A strong case can be made for normal copyright liability for all cable retransmission of broadcast signals, local and distant. Only this type of normal copyright liability would eliminate the unfair competitive advantage which cable now enjoys. Normal liability would not prevent cable growth; it certainly did not prevent television broadcasting from growing from virtually nothing a generation ago to what it is today.
We now have the Senate bill S. 22, in final form, as well as several other suggestions for changes in section 111, including a second proposal from the Teleprompter ('orporation that seems to have cable industry support. Since the beginning of the consideration of copyright by the committee early last year, we have also had a number of changes in the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission which affect cable and are pertinent to the copy. right issue and to broadcasters. In addition the staff of the House Subcommittee on Communications has filed a study on cable which makes recommendations in the copyright area.
Taking all of these things into consideration, we believe the copyright situation has changed in some degree and that these changes require broadcasters to view the issues from new and different perspective. While our commitment to a settlement of the copyright issue has not waned, we believe that the new circuni. stances present an opportunity for a compromise proposal that has some distinct advantages over any other suggestions for section 111 set made. On the following pages we set out our proposal and the rational for it.
We want to emphasize that the proposal is viewed by broadcasters as a package, an integrated series of concepts with each part dependent on the other. We cannot say, nor would we want to imply, that any one part of the proposal could be accepted without the other parts,
We believe our suggestions have a number of advantages over anything that has gone before. Most significantly, it is a simple proposal and easily understood. There are no complicated formulas that, even if equitable, would prove expensive and difficut to administer. Local signals would be granted a compulsory license and small systems would be granted a total exemption for all signals presently carried. There would no longer be arguments over the tribunal or its periodic meetings. The Register of (opyrights would be relieved of a great deal of paper. work and administrative responsibilities. And the question of fees could be settled where it should be settled, not in the Congress, but among the parties themselves.
We urge the Subcommittee to give serious attention to the broadcast compromise proposal.
THE Basic ELEMENTS OF SECTION 111 L'NDER BROADCAST PROPOSAL
1. All Cable systems would be granted a compulsory license without any copy. right payment for all local signals, now or in the future.
2. The spirit of the Senate proposal granting small cable systems a reduction in the fees to be paid would be retained and expanded. A compulsory license without any copyright fee would be granted for all present. For-authorized signals, distant and local, for cable systems with revenues of $25,000 or less per quarter or $100,000 or less per annum.
