    As interest in digital scholarship becomes more widespread, and more units within the Libraries and across the IU campus become interested in developing digital collections, the DLP is re-evaluating how it can best support the growing needs of the university and the wider community, and adjust to developing expectations. In this talk, the Associate Director for Digital Library Content and Services will briefly discuss the history of digital collections development, both at IU and beyond, before examining the new paradigm for digital scholarship and describing the DLP\'s plan for supporting that new paradigm.

    IPFW Librarian Wins Northeast Indiana Playwright Festival Competition
    Denise Buhr, IPFW arts librarian and liaison to the College of Visual and Performing Arts and interim university archivist, has won first place in the 2nd Annual Northeast Indiana Playwright Festival. Sponsored by the Fort Wayne Civic Theatre, the award celebrates the work of area playwrights living within a 90-mile radius of Fort Wayne.

    Denise's compelling work, Discom-BOOB-ulated, follows a young woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer through a year of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Rather than focusing on the effect of treatments on the central character, however, the play examines the impact that having breast cancer has on relationships with others around her.

    The play will be presented in a fully-staged production during the 2nd Annual Northeast Indiana Playwright Festival, along with readings of the second- and third-place winners' plays. Discussions will follow each play. Discom-BOOB-ulated will be performed at the Allen County Public Library auditorium on Saturday, June 4 at 12 noon and 4 p.m., on Friday, June 10 and June 17 at 8 p.m., and on Saturday, June 11 and 18 at 2 p.m.

    In addition to this accolade, Denise’s 10-minute play April Snows was one of 10 (out of 70 submissions) to be selected for presentation at the Mid-America Theatre Conference Playwriting Symposium, to be held in Minneapolis on March 3-6, 2011.

    Join the IUB Libraries in its presentation of STORM, Wednesday, February 23, 4:30pm, Wells Library, E174. Hannah Maynard, prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague, is leading a trial against a former commander of the Yugoslavian National Army who is accused of the deportation and later killing of dozens of Bosnian-Muslim civilians. When a key witness commits suicide, it looks like the case will unravel, however Hannah refuses to give in. Hoping to uncover new findings, she travels to the witness' burial in Sarajevo and meets his sister Mira who she senses has much more to say than she is willing to admit.  Despite threats of violence, Mira reluctantly agrees to testify at The Hague. However, she and Hannah must both risk life and limb to make it to the court, only to discover that there are traitors among their own ranks.

    Film Movement Spring Series
    Join the IUB Libraries in its presentation of STORM, Wednesday, February 23, 4:30pm, Wells Library, E174. Hannah Maynard, prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague, is leading a trial against a former commander of the Yugoslavian National Army who is accused of the deportation and later killing of dozens of Bosnian-Muslim civilians. When a key witness commits suicide, it looks like the case will unravel, however Hannah refuses to give in. Hoping to uncover new findings, she travels to the witness' burial in Sarajevo and meets his sister Mira who she senses has much more to say than she is willing to admit.  Despite threats of violence, Mira reluctantly agrees to testify at The Hague. However, she and Hannah must both risk life and limb to make it to the court, only to discover that there are traitors among their own ranks.

    Digital Library Brown Bag Panel
    Greetings! Please join us this coming Wednesday, March 9, 2011 for a digital library brown bag panel presentation by Dot Porter, Jennifer Laherty and Robert McDonald . The presentation will be held at the Herman B Wells Library, room E174, from 12:00-1:00pm.

    --------------

    The Times They Are A-Changin': Preservation of and Access to the Digital Output of Researchers

    Dot Porter, Jennifer Laherty and Robert McDonald Digital Library Program / IU ScholarWorks / Library Technologies and Digital Libraries

    IU has developed a number of strategies for dealing with the digital scholarly output of IU faculty. In this session, information managers will outline these strategies and discuss plans for the future. Laherty will discuss the IUScholarWorks program which aims to make the digital output of IU scholars available and to ensure that these resources are archived, preserved and organized for the future. In this presentation, Laherty will briefly demonstrate IUScholarWorks services and explain its benefits, including the strategies for preserving records. Porter will examine the various ways that the Digital Library Program supports the preservation of faculty scholarship in the broad sense and will examine in more detail a few specific faculty-led projects the DLP has supported in the past. In addition, she will review DLP's participation in initiatives throughout the Libraries and across campus that support preservation of digital work through shared file formats, best practices, and shared infrastructure and technologies. Finally, McDonald will review IU's plans for research data curation and management.

    Bells, Whistles, and Alarms: HCI Lessons Using AJAX for a Page-turning Web Application: Julie Hardesty Digital Library Program

    This case study describes creating a version of METS Navigator, a page-turning web application for multi- part digital objects, using an AJAX library with user interface (UI) components. This design created problems for customized user interactions and accessibility problems for users, including those using assistive technologies and mobile devices. A review of the literature considers AJAX, accessibility, and universal usability and possible steps to take moving forward to correct these problems in METS Navigator.

    2011 William Evans Jenkins Librarian Award
    The William Evans Jenkins Librarian Award Committee is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2011 award: Mechael D. Charbonneau and Roger Beckman. Named for Indiana native and Chief Librarian of Indiana University, 1904-1921, this annual award recognizes the outstanding contribution to Indiana University or to the profession, by a librarian on the Bloomington campus.

    Mechael Charbonneau served as Head of the Cataloging Division, Technical Services Department, Indiana University Libraries, from March 1999 to July 2003 and is currently Associate Dean for Technical Services. As head of the Technical Services Division, Ms. Charbonneau is credited with the successful migration of the university’s integrated library system from NOTIS to SIRSI, the implementation of an electronic resources management system (ERMS) and the incorporation of non-MARC metadata into the cataloging workflow of IUB catalogers.

    Her service to the Indiana University Libraries has included participation in a range of library faculty task forces and Bloomington Library Faculty committees. The Task Group on “the Future of Cataloging at Indiana University,” which she chaired during 2005-2006, received national attention for its white paper – a document hailed as a template that could be adopted by research libraries nationwide. “Ms. Charbonneau has provided a tremendous service to the library community by authoring this work” (Lisa German, Asst. Dean for Technology & Collections Services, Penn State Libraries). The full text of this document may be accessed at: http://www.iub.edu/~libtserv/pub/Future_of_Cataloging_White_Paper.pdf

    A reputed “leader in the profession who is shaping the conversation in the field of technical services” (Carlen Ruschoff, Dir. of Information Technology & Technical Services Division, University of Maryland), Ms. Charbonneau has played a leadership role in several organizations, at the national, regional and state levels, including: the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (Policy Committee, Vice-Chair, Chair, Chair Emerita: 2005-2008, Cooperative Online Serials Program, (member of numerous standing committees and task forces: 1999-2004, CONSER Summit, 2004, invited participant, BIBCO (Liaison: 1999-present)); Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (Technical Services Directors of Large Research Libraries Interest Group, Chair: 2008-09, Vice-Chair/Chair Elect: 2007-2008; OCLC (Alternate delegate, Members Council: 2005-2008); Indiana Cooperative Library Services Authority (Board of Directors: 2002-2009); Ohio Valley Group of Technical Services Librarians (Chair: 2006-2007, Vice-Chair/Chair Elect: 2005-2006, Past Chair: 2007-2008, Chair, Annual Conference Planning Committee; 2005-2006). In addition, as Chair of the Cataloging Working Group since 1999, she has been a member of the SIRSI Working Group Chairs. Hence, the observation by Lisa German: “Very few libraries participate in national cataloging initiatives at the level of Indiana University, and it is due to Mechael’s leadership that the Cataloging Department at Indiana is held in such high esteem.”

    Mechael Charbonneau currently co-chairs the Workflow and Implementation Team of the Kuali Open Library Environment Functional Council (KUALI OLE), and is thus one of a group of national library leaders spearheading this effort to develop an open source administrative software package geared mainly towards academic and research libraries.

    Sylvia Turchyn, Section Head, Western European Cataloging, Indiana University Libraries, Bloomington, asserts: “Ms. Charbonneau has secured IUL’s place as a prominent voice in shaping the future of classic metadata creation, collaboration and distribution. We hold a respected place at the table because of Ms. Charbonneau’s intelligence, vision and people skills.”

    Mechael Charbonneau has presented and published widely, on technical services issues, in the course of her career, and some of her publications can be found in such journals, as Library Resources & Technical Services and Cataloging and Classification Quarterly. At the invitation of the Library of Congress Working Group on the Future of Bibliographical Control, she delivered a presentation titled “The economics and organization of bibliographic data from the PCC and large library perspective” at a public hearing, on July 9, 2007. The full text of this invited paper can be accessed at: http://www.loc.gov/bibliographic-future/meetings/docs/charbonneau-july9-2007.pdf.
     
     Roger Beckman is currently Head of the Indiana University Life Sciences Library and the Chemistry Library. During his tenure, he has also served as Acting Head of the Optometry Library and Swain Hall Library. In addition to his immediate duties as Head of two libraries, he holds collection development responsibility in the areas of monographs and serials for biology, chemistry, nursing, medical sciences and optometry. He also administers three monographic endowment funds. According to Jian Liu, his nominator for this award, “these funds total over $1.8 million, the largest portion, by far, of the materials budget managed by any individual librarian at IUB.” Beckman has also taught courses in IU’s Department of Chemistry and in the School of Library and Information Science.

    Beckman’s “user-centered” approach to collection development has resulted in collections that are heavily used by the students and faculty for whom they are designed. His expertise in collection development is acquired by dint of “listening to users about what they need, looking at use statistics …User convenience drives his collection development decisions” (Jian Liu). The IU libraries for which Beckman is responsible now boast impressive journal collections and this fact is often remarked on by their users. Liu recalls a time when libraries were torn between print and online subscriptions and states that “Roger made the right decision to steer towards electronic.” Beckman is also credited with placing IU at the vanguard of e-book collection.

    Beckman’s success in collection development is also a result of his subject expertise for which he is well respected. Howard Gest, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Microbiology and Adjunct Professor, History and Philosophy of Science, observes: “another unusual aspect of Roger’s commitment is that he frequently attends technical lectures and seminars to increase his understanding of complex current research in the biological sciences.” It is no coincidence that Jian Liu considers him “the most knowledgeable and most successful collection manager” that he knows.

    While Beckman considers collection development his forte, his mentorship of library interns at the Chemistry Library is legendary. His commitment to nurturing the next generation of librarians is evident in his long-standing involvement with the Indiana University SLIS GA program, where he serves as Specialization Advisor for students in the Chemical Information Specialization. Debora Shaw, Professor and Interim Dean of the School of Library and Information Science, states that the success of students involved in this program “is attributable in no small part to the experience they gain while working with Roger.” Jian Liu, a past protégé of Beckman’s, opines that mentorship is “second nature” to Beckman and that his patience, persistence, magnanimity and “clear vision for the future careers of his junior colleagues and the young prospective library students” are the qualities that render him “an ideal mentor, the kind of colleague one would be fortunate to have, especially at the beginning of one’s career.”

    A superb role model for students pursuing a career in science librarianship, Beckman is successful in instilling a sense of public service in all his interns and manages to communicate to them that “in addition to having the scientific knowledge, a public service attitude and love for the librarian career are core to becoming successful in this area” (Yuening Zhang). To his credit, many of his students have become successful librarians and some now hold important positions in top companies in the U.S.

    Full-time staff members at the libraries that Beckman heads have clearly been schooled in his brand of public service described as “polite and professional” or “quite special.” Beckman’s libraries receive high commendation for their commitment to service: “Under his leadership the entire staff of the Life Sciences Library is now focused on providing quality service … the staff is committed to making the users happy … I attribute the complete change in attitude and atmosphere there almost completely to Roger’s leadership and commitment to service himself” (Anthony L. Mescher, Prof. of Anatomy and Cell Biology, IU).

    Roger Beckman’s service to the profession is also apparent in the leadership positions that he has held in professional associations, such as the Special Libraries Association, Indiana Chapter (President/President-elect: 1993-1995); Special Libraries Association, Chemistry Division (Past-Chair, Chair, Chair-Elect: 1996-1999 & Public Relations Chair); Science & Technology Division (Director and Archivist); Indiana Online Users’ Group (Co-Chair, Program Committee: 1991-1993); Indiana University Librarians Association (Secretary: 1990-1991, At-Large Board Member: 1991-1992, Treasurer: 1998-1999, At-Large Board Member: 2005-2006). He has also served as moderator at association conferences and has helped to organize individual sessions for the Special Libraries Association annual conference, such as the Sci-Tech Division Contributed Paper session (2003, 2006 & 2008).

    Roger Beckman has published extensively in the area of chemical librarianship and other sciences, including optometry. His publications pertaining to the sciences include book chapters and articles and treat various aspects of this area of librarianship, such as research methods, document delivery (especially interlibrary loan) and information provision and training in an academic setting. His articles can be found in journals such as Interoptics: Bulletin of the International Optometric and Optical League as well as in newsletters such as Indiana SLANT. Beckman has been able to combine his training in library science with that of anthropology and has also published outside his immediate professional specialization, on subjects such as team-consulting, optometric education in Indonesia, guides to official publications in Peru, reports on the Indiana Newspaper Project and on informational retrieval by librarians and researchers. These can be found in periodicals, such as C&RL News, The Indiana Newspaper Messenger, and LiveWire. He has also contributed a variety of reviews of reference material for academia. Other offerings have included sundry presentations, poster sessions, and exhibits on a variety of subjects.

    Mechael Charbonneau and Roger Beckman will be recognized for their accomplishments at the Libraries’ Retirement & Recognition Reception, on Thursday, April 21, 2:30-4: 00 p.m., in the Herman B Wells Library Reference Reading Room in Bloomington and will be presented with their awards at the Bloomington Library Faculty meeting, on Friday, May 13, 2:00-4:00 p.m., in the Staff Lounge at the Herman B Wells Library, IUB.

    Modern Political Papers
    Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 Digital Collection

    The IU Libraries Modern Political Papers collections and the Digital Library Program announce the opening of the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 Digital Collection (http://www.libraries.iub.edu/index.php?pageId=1002513 ).  The Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 created the framework for universities to develop and profit from products emerging from federally funded research, which had previously been nearly impossible.  The legislation also simplified patent procedure, dissolving the logjam of 28,000 patents awaiting approval in the U.S. Patent Office and eliminating overlapping and redundant procedures.  Its effect on universities and the development of all kinds of technologies has been tremendous.  The Bayh-Dole Act Digital Collection consists of the documents relating to that legislation in the Birch Bayh Senatorial Papers of the IU Libraries Modern Political Papers collections.  The digital collection is complemented by online resources on the Bayh-Dole Act History and Research Central site of the Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property of the University of New Hampshire Law School (http://www.bayhdolecentral.com/) , providing an incomparable collection of resources on the struggle for passage of the act and the extensive bipartisan work that made it possible.

    The IU Libraries Modern Political Papers collections and the Digital Library Program announce the opening of the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 Digital Collection (http://www.libraries.iub.edu/index.php?pageId=1002513 ).  The Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 created the framework for universities to develop and profit from products emerging from federally funded research, which had previously been nearly impossible.  The legislation also simplified patent procedure, dissolving the logjam of 28,000 patents awaiting approval in the U.S. Patent Office and eliminating overlapping and redundant procedures.  Its effect on universities and the development of all kinds of technologies has been tremendous.  The Bayh-Dole Act Digital Collection consists of the documents relating to that legislation in the Birch Bayh Senatorial Papers of the IU Libraries Modern Political Papers collections.  The digital collection is complemented by online resources on the Bayh-Dole Act History and Research Central site of the Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property of the University of New Hampshire Law School (http://www.bayhdolecentral.com/) , providing an incomparable collection of resources on the struggle for passage of the act and the extensive bipartisan work that made it possible.

    Annual InULA Business Meeting
    2011 Librarians’ Day

    Staff News
    It is with regret that I announce the resignation of Steven Sowell, Head of Social Sciences and the Business/SPEA IC. Effective July 1, Steven will be leaving Indiana University to become the Head of the Collections and Resource Sharing Department for the Oregon State University Libraries in Corvallis, OR.  In this position, he will manage the collections budget and supervise four of the library’s units: Collection Development, Acquisitions, Interlibrary Loan, and Access Services (Circulation and Collection Maintenance).

    Steven has a rich history working for the Libraries.  In 1981, he started in his first position with the IU Bloomington Libraries as the head of what was then the Biology Library and during this time, he served as Chair of the Sciences Libraries.   In 1995, he became Head of the Education Library.  During this appointment, which ended in 2004, he also acted as the Interim Administrative Head of the Music Library, the Interim Associate Dean and Director of Technical Services, Coordinator of the Humanities & Social Sciences Libraries, and the Coordinator for the Campus Libraries.  For several years between 1988 and 2005, he was also an adjunct assistant professor for SLIS.  In 2004, Steven left the Libraries to become the Associate Director & Chief of Staff for Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County.  In 2007, he returned to the Libraries as Head of the Business/SPEA Library.  Steven has made many significant contributions through his leadership and service over the years.  His most recent significant accomplishment was his role in the transformation of the Business/SPEA Library to an Information Commons.  He has been a wonderful colleague and supervisor throughout his years at IU and he will be greatly missed.

    Please join me in congratulating Steven on his new position and thanking him for a job well done here at IU.
     
    Arrangements for handling the Head of Social Sciences and the Business/SPEA IC responsibilities will be announced at a later date.

     Last Chance: IU Archives Exhibit Closing Soon
    The Indiana University Archives is host to the exhibit: Borkenstein and His Monster: The Man Behind the Breathalyzer.
     
    Over the course of his life, Professor Robert F. Borkenstein (1912-2002) rose from a full career in the police ranks to become an Indiana University professor, administrator, and highly respected leader in forensic science and traffic safety. Borkenstein’s most celebrated single achievement was his groundbreaking invention of the Breathalyzer in 1954.

    The Robert F. Borkenstein Papers at the IU Archives contain a rich record of Borkenstein’s many professional and personal endeavors. Highlights from this collection, including the original Breathalyzer prototype, several successive models, photographs, and evidence of Borkenstein’s extensive influence, are featured on display through May 2011.

    All are encourage to visit the exhibit in the IU Archives reception area (room E460) at the Herman B Wells Library at IU in Bloomington.  It was curated by Amy Jankowski.

    Cushman’s Curiosity in Black and White

    2011 Librarians’ Day

    Staff News
    I am pleased to announce the appointment of Jennifer Liss as the Metadata/Cataloging Librarian, effective July 1, 2011.  In this visiting position, Jennifer will play an important role in assisting Cataloging Division managers to develop and define the ongoing evolution of metadata in a traditional cataloging environment, as well as manage and implement non-MARC metadata projects.   Jennifer will also provide original cataloging of materials in multiple MARC formats, participating in the NACO, SACO and BIBCO programs of the Library of Congress’ Program for Cooperative Cataloging.  Jennifer has worked for the Libraries since 2004, first as a student for the Chemistry Library, the Preservation Lab, and Technical Services.  In 2006, she began her first appointed position as a Monographic Cataloger in the Western European Monographic Copy Cataloging Unit.  In 2009 she was promoted to her current position as Metadata Specialist and Cataloger in the WE Monographic Original Cataloging Unit.  Jennifer received her MLS from IUB in 2006 and a BA in English from Rutgers University.  I would like to thank the Search & Screen Committee for their fine work:  Sue Stancu (Chair), James Castrataro, Michelle Dalmau, Denise Stuempfle, Jane Torres and Jennifer Chaffin (ex-officio).

    Cushman’s Curiosity in Black and White
    Many organizations and individuals in the United States and Europe are now familiar with the name, Charles W. Cushman. Cushman graduated from Indiana University in 1917 and his color photographs dating from 1938 through 1969 have been widely viewed and utilized in documentaries, books, newspapers, magazines & websites across two continents. However, most people are completely unaware that Cushman was also shooting high-quality black and white images well before 1938 through the early 1940s.
    This exhibit highlights some of Cushman’s finest black and white images as well as examples of the notes he kept, other documents, and camera equipment.

    We invite you to stop by the Indiana University Archives (Wells Library E460) through September 30, 2011 to view this exhibit.

    If you are unfamiliar with Cushman’s works in color, then please visit the Charles Cushman website at: www.dlib.indiana.edu/collections/cushman.

    It is with mixed feelings that I announce Alex Berry is leaving the DLP to work on web applications and websites for the Systems Design & Development group in the Office of Enrollment Management at IU. Alex first worked for the DLP was a SLIS student. He was a graduate assistant on the Variations3 project. Upon graduating two years ago, Alex joined the DLP full time to work on the Variations/FRBR project, which is now drawing to a close. Alex has made significant contributions to the project, particularly in programming the Scherzo faceted music search based on the FRBR metadata model.

    Alex's last day here will be June 22nd. Please join me in wishing Alex well in his new endeavor.

    Lee H. Hamilton Congressional Newsletters Online      
    The IU Libraries Modern Political Papers collections and the Digital Library Program are pleased to announce the availability online of Lee Hamilton’s weekly Washington Reports (1965-1998) monthly Foreign Affairs Newsletters (1981-1998).   Each newsletter explores one issue or controversy in depth and was intended both to inform interested constituents and to contribute to discussions among members of Congress as part of the work of arriving at consensus on important legislation.  The newsletters cover the full range of domestic economic and political issues, such as federal spending, the deficit, the national debt, Medicare, and Social Security, as well as foreign policy matters such as relations with Iran, terrorism, and Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.  Because of their emphasis on analysis of issues, they are almost uniformly as relevant today as when they were written.  The digital images can be accessed through the finding aid for the Lee H. Hamilton Congressional Papers at http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/findingaids/view?brand=general&docId=VAA2020&chunk.id=VAA2020-05872&startDoc=1 .

    Jir Shin Boey will resign from her position as Stacks Coordinator/Circulation Supervisor at the William and Gayle Cook Music Library on July 1, 2011. She has held this position since 2005, working as the Assistant Stacks Supervisor from 2003 to 2005, and as a Circulation Assistant at both the Music Library and the Archives of Traditional Music from 2000 to 2003. In December of 2010, she received a Doctor of Philosophy in Historical Musicology from the Indiana University Jacobs Schools of Music with her dissertation, “Popular Music in the Culture of Ambivalence: the Search for Identity in the Sixteenth-Century Low Countries.” Jir Shin has accepted a tenure-track position as the Assistant Professor of Music History at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Please join us in congratulating Jir Shin on her new career.

    Effective June 26, Celeste Schulman has accepted the position of Circulation Supervisor/Stacks Coordinator at the William and Gayle Cook Music Library. She comes to this position after having been the Assistant Stacks Supervisor since 2008. Celeste holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and received a Master of Library Science degree from the Indiana University School of Library and Information Science in 2010. Please welcome Celeste in her promotion.

    Pamela Effrein Sandstrom, Helmke Library's Director of Library Programs and Development, will retire on June 30, 2011. She will continue her long association with IPFW as Associate Librarian Emerita, and hopes to stay in touch with Fort Wayne friends and colleagues by keeping her IPFW e-mail account active. She is continuing to serve as archivist for the Central States Anthropological Society.

    Pamela first came to work at IPFW Helmke Library in February 1976 as a serials assistant. From 1978 to 1980 she was head of the serials unit, and left to pursue the M.L.S. (master of library science) degree from Indiana University Bloomington, which she earned in 1981.

    Latter at the Helmke Library, Pamela served once as visiting science librarian during 1985-1986, as part-time general reference librarian from 1981 to 1983, and interim document delivery librarian in 1993. In 1998, after earning a Ph.D. in library and information science from IUB, she returned as head of the library's reference and information services unit. Following a sabbatical leave to continue their long-term anthropological work in Mexico, Pamela returned to Helmke Library to focus her efforts on defining the new learning-commons initiative at IPFW that would feature information literacy as the cornerstone of an undergraduate education. She leaves us with the framework (and soon, the actual scaffolding) in place, and a sense of confidence that the next 30 years will bring as many changes to institutions of learning like IPFW as she has witnessed in her career as a librarian. At the base of this vision of librarianship lies the age-old sense of "athenaeum" — both a physical building and an organization of people dedicated to the promotion of learning.

    Judy began her career at with the Indiana University Libraries in April 2001.  Her responsibilities included providing general office and administrative support for the Associate Dean for Technical Services and for the Heads of the Acquisitions and Cataloging Divisions.  In addition, Judy handled departmental correspondence distribution, monitored the general departmental phone and email accounts, and oversaw office supplies and equipment needs.  Thanks to Judy’s assistance and outstanding support, the jobs of the fulltime staff and student hourly staff within the Technical Services Department were made much easier.

    In addition to her regular position responsibilities, Judy also made many significant and valuable contributions to the IU Libraries.  She never hesitated to volunteer within the Department or within the Libraries.  She routinely participated in the annual Board of Trustees Election and often volunteered to assist with the planning and execution of many library-sponsored events.  Judy also served on several internal Technical Services committees such as the Bookplating Task Force and the Internal Communications Task Group.  In 2005, Judy was the recipient of the Biweekly Appointed Staff Library Award in recognition of her exceptional performance, positive attitude, and helpfulness notable among her peers. 

    Thank you, Judy, for your ten years of devoted service.  You will be sorely missed in the Library, and we all wish you well in your retirement.

    New Exhibit: Light is Good in Whatever Lamp it Burns
    “Light Is Good in Whatever Lamp It Burns”: Religious Tolerance and the Vision of Beck Chapel

    Retiring from a 25 year career as a teacher, minister and social worker in 1934, Frank O. Beck (A.B. 1894, A.M. 1895) and his wife Daisy (A.B. 1899) returned to their alma mater to serve as unofficial counselors to the student body and the administration. In 1937, at the request of President Wells, Frank Beck began work to organize what would become the University Committee on Religion which consisted of representatives from various religious faiths and sought to ease prejudice with tolerance and understanding. The related Student Religious Cabinet formed shortly thereafter. As the programs grew, the Becks began a nearly twenty year campaign to build a place of worship on the Indiana University campus for those of all faiths, and in 1957 thanks in large part to their own vision and financial support Beck Chapel was dedicated. Today the chapel stands as a symbol of religious unity, but not, according to Beck, as “a chapel of a universal religion but a chapel that recognizes the claims of all religions – a chapel that avows that ‘light is good in whatever lamp it burns.’”

    This new exhibit, curated by Carrie Schwier, is housed in the IU Archives reading room which is located in the Herman B Wells Library in Bloomington. It will be displayed through September.

David has accepted a position at Zayed University in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates as a Reference & Instruction Librarian. In this new position, he will provide instruction and consultation services to students in a variety of disciplines and support the growth of the library’s collections. 

    During his time at IU, David managed collections in support of the International Studies program and contributed to the libraries’ reference and instructional services.

    Librarian Poster Session
    Have you recently presented a paper or poster at a conference? Have you just started a research project and you could use some feedback? Do you have ongoing research you would like to share with your colleagues? Then come to the Librarians' Research Sharing Session!
     
    Conveniently scheduled between the American Libraries Association and Society of American Archivists annual conferences, the sharing session will give librarians from across IU the opportunity to share their work and to learn what others are doing. The research sharing session will be in the format of a poster session.
     
    Wait - what's a poster session? Dot Porter’s take:

    The way a poster session works is that all participants have space to set up a poster (and / or a computer if the presentation involves a software demonstration of some sort, and maybe a hand-out too), and people who attend the session are free to walk through and see the posters, and talk to the presenters. There isn't really a formal presentation, nor a time constraint. In the past when I've presented posters I've found it very helpful to have a couple of minutes of patter - almost an elevator pitch, just enough to give people an idea of what I'm working on. Some people pass right by; others might spend more time and ask a lot of questions, it just depends. It's quite a different experience from giving a traditional presentation, much more informal and more personal as well.
     
    Present your work, and find out what your colleagues are working on Everyone is welcome, whether or not you are presenting work.
     
    Register online by Monday July 18th to present in the session: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/sharing_session
     
    Date: Wednesday, July 20
    Location: Wells Library, room E174
    Time:  10:00a - 3:00p – posters on display, participants attend as available
                 1:00p - 2:00p – all participants are asked to attend during this time

    IU Finding Aids is now Archives Online at Indiana University!

    http://www.dlib.indiana.edu/collections/findingaids/

    We changed the name to better reflect the variety of collections to be found in the site, and to make the site more welcoming to non-archival specialists. Archives Online at IU contains guides for archival collections, or finding aids, from units across IU Bloomington and is open to contributions from other IU campuses. In addition to the University Archives and the Lilly Library, Archives Online at IU serves finding aids for the Archives of African American Music and Culture, Center for the Study of History and Memory, the Folklore Collection, the Liberian Collections, and the Political Papers. Our newest units include the Black Film Center/Archive, the Wylie House Museum, and the African Studies Collection.

    Many of the finding aids included in Archives Online at IU link to digitized objects, notably the President Herman B. Wells speeches (http://purl.dlib.indiana.edu/iudl/findingaids/archives/InU-Ar-VAA2642), from the IU Archives, Jane Johnson's Manuscript Nursery Library (http://purl.dlib.indiana.edu/iudl/findingaids/lilly/InU-Li-VAA1275), from the Lilly Library, and the Andrew Wylie, Jr. family collection (http://purl.dlib.indiana.edu/iudl/findingaids/wyliehouse/VAC0754), from the Wylie House Museum.

    If you are interested in including your archival collections in Archives Online at IU, please contact Dot Porter at doporter@indiana.edu.

    Archives Online at IU will be adding exciting new collections and new functionality in the near future, so watch for more announcements soon!

    Archives Online at Indiana University is a service of the Digital Library Program in cooperation with the IU EAD Working Group.

    Kris Stenson wins Beta Phi Mu Award for Student Scholarship
    The winner of this year's Beta Phi Mu Chi Chapter Award for Student Scholarship is Kristopher Stenson. His paper, "How Much is Enough? An Analysis of Electronic Serials Holdings Duplication at Indiana University Bloomington" was written for S505 - Evaluation of Resources and Services and nominated by Assistant Professor Cassidy Sugimoto.

    BPM reviewers described the paper as, "Well-written and potentially helpful as a model for other libraries wanting to evaluate and/or minimize duplication in their serials coverage." "Represents a tremendous amount of work and is a nice proof of concept that could be used for a larger study. Creative and innovative in the tools that were used."

    Another commented: "Excellent focus of research topic, i.e. excluding analysis of print periodicals. Literature review was excellent -- thorough and current. The research method was interesting. The use of sampling was very interesting, plus I had confidence in it. The author sought appropriate approvals, yet made the case that the results could be applied in a wider context. Excellent statistical reporting, analysis and conclusion. Made a clear case about future research needs and the case that overlap analysis could be a tool for informed reduction of titles and subscriptions." Noting what may have been a problem with the original research question, the reviewer concluded, "Some weaknesses are clarified in the conclusion -- the researcher found that the study would need to be further refined."

    Mr. Stenson will present his paper and receive the Award at a Beta Phi Mu, Chi Chapter event this fall.
