*IUPUI University Library Upgrades Computer Service

As part of an overall commitment to provide state of the art computer workstation services, IUPUI University Library has migrated its Local Area Network to new, high speed Dell servers running the Microsoft 2000 operating system. This move allows the library to stay current with the IUPUI campus strategy of moving out of the Novell LAN server environment. The new server platform will facilitate improved logins, allowing patrons to begin using their campus user id's and passwords on University Library workstations.

Currently, patrons may use either their campus ids or a generic user id to log on to Library computers. In support of the Indiana University plan to enhance computer system security, the University Library will require personal user id's at library workstations for all users beginning Summer Semester 2002. At that point, no generic user id's will allow access. Library patrons without campus credentials will be able to generate user id's by visiting the Circulation Desk of the University Library.

This represents the first time user id's have been required for use at University Library computer workstations, and patrons are reminded to logout upon completion of their use of the computers to ensure computer and user security.

For further information, visit the University Library home page at www.ulib.iupui.edu or contact Charles Dye, Director of Information Technology, at cdye@iupui.edu or (317) 278-3025.

Burroughs, founding director of the DuSable Museum of African-American History, Chicago, Illinois.

*New online collection of 19th centruy American fiction

The Digital Library Program is pleased to announce the availability of a new online collection of American fiction published between 1851-1875.

*Dr. Patrick J. Furlong to speak at the Schurz Library Atrium

What Exactly is a Hoosier?

Join Dr. Patrick J. Furlong as he answers that question and many others about Indiana on Tuesday, February 19, 2002, at 7:30 p.m. in the Schurz Library Atrium, IUSB. Dr. Furlong will talk about his latest book, Indiana: an Illustrated History, which was published in October 2001 by the American Historical Press. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

The boundaries which separate Indiana from its neighboring states are not just arbitrary lines drawn across a map. The states of the American union develop a personality of their own, a complex blend of geography, history, and culture which dramatically distinguishes one from another. So begins Patrick J. Furlongs examination of the Hoosier state. Indiana: an Illustrated History is over 300 pages of stories - tales of bravery, vision, hope, and humor. Professor Furlong is a master storyteller, and these stories enliven the book as he covers Indiana history from the days of the frontier to the new century. Over 350 black and white and color photos illustrate the book.

Patrick J. Furlong has shared his love for American history with his students at Indiana University South Bend since 1967. Published widely in journals including Traces of Indiana History and the Indiana Magazine of History, Professor Furlong is also a popular speaker for historical societies and service clubs across the state. He was also the historical consultant for the award-winning television program, Studebaker: Less Than They Promised. Dr. Furlong is currently chairman of the history department and director of the Master of Liberal Studies Program at IUSB.

*Virus Worries?

Recent increases in virus attacks have stirred interest in the Libraries concerning exactly how protected we are against such activity. Here are some ways in which UITS, LIT, and you team up and defeat any attempted virus attack:

  1. UITS: Campus Exchange email servers have their own antiviral programs, and are configured to intercept all known viruses or virus-like files. The servers block attachments containing known file types that might execute a program (suffixes like *.exe and *.vba), & blocked attachments are substituted with a simple text file (*.txt) at the server. Note that the Shakespeare mail servers do not have anti-viral programs running on them, so someone who read mail in pine and downloads attachment there depend only on the local machine antiviral protection without an advance layer of protection at the server as in Exchange mail. Finally, the campus IT Security Office advises local support like LIT upon 1st detection of new viruses so we can keep you informed, and forms appropriate system policy for us all.

  2. LIT: We have configured both staff and public workstations with local antiviral programs which perform automatic scanning and program upgrades. These programs run in the background to detect, quarantine or cleanse files suspected to be infected before they can do harm. When you receive an alert that a virus is found, so do we at our administrative console, and we can examine quarantined files or even delete them for you remotely when necessary. We also perform regular virus scanning of our network file stores like the Marengo server to additionally guard against any central storage of an infected file. One consideration in each new build is to include the latest programs and techniques to prevent compromise or infection. When we learn of a new virus danger, we send out the messages you have been observing periodically. LIT offers specific instructions for setting up filters to avoid or route specific mail in Outlook at http://lit.indiana.edu/kb/mail-organize.html. Note: If you have a Library issued laptop, you will have been told if it is part of this LIT managed program. If not or if unsure, then you should run the "Live Update" feature in your antiviral program regularly yourself while online.

  3. The User: Individual users have an important role in virus prevention. Here are things you can do to help diminish virus dangers at work or home: (1) Please never ignore a virus alert from LIT, as we only send them when immediate attention is warranted; (2) If messages as described in these alerts do arrive in your inbox, delete the message immediately without opening any attachments. If you get a note that a file is quarantined, you are still uninfected since the message means that the antiviral program intercepted the dangerous file. DO NOT send a suspected virus message on to others, even to ask if it was real! (3) Good IU Security Office tips for keeping your home systems safe may be found at http://www.itso.iu.edu/howto/firewall/steps/; (4) Don't be a "carrier" by spreading bogus hoaxes accidentally. Suspect any news about viruses not received from LIT or the IU ITSO, checking out such stories at expert sites like http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/ and http://hoazbusters.ciac.org/ and (5) Protect yours and others' susceptibility to spam and virus senders by avoiding forwards to multiple addressees at all or at least putting all addresses as "bcc" (blind copy to) and erasing prevous email addresses in the text so the entire list doesn't get passed on and "snowball" into a huge unintentional email directory with repeated sending.

The U.S. Steel Gary Works Photograph Collection, 1905-1971 is accessible online at http://www.dlib.indiana.edu/collections/steel. It includes not only a wealth of photographic documentation reflecting the steel plant's rich history, but a host of other resources as well, including bibliographies, suggested readings, and hypertext links to a wide range of research and educational materials.

The U.S. Steel Gary Works Photograph Collection provides access to more than 2,200 digital images documenting the creation of the world's largest steel mill during the height of America's industrial revolution. The collection depicts the life and times of one of the nation's largest corporate towns, documented by U.S. Steel photographers. And while the gaze of the cameras eye often focuses upon the massive and varied industrial machinery of the steel works, it also captures the lives of the men and women who worked in and around it as well. The experience as a whole provides a startling portal into the past of one of the most tumultuous periods of our nation's history.

Although the site will undoubtedly prove a valuable resource for scholars and historians of American history and the Industrial Revolution alike, the U.S. Steel Gary Works Photograph Collection was also carefully designed to meet the unique needs of another target audience: school teachers and students. As such, in addition to its core of documentary photography, the site also includes guides for fourth grade, middle and high school teachers, as well as question sets for classroom discussion.

The digitization project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services http://www.imls.gov/ under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Indiana State Library http://www.statelib.lib.in.us.

IU's Digital Library program is a university-wide partnership of the IU Libraries http://www.indiana.edu/~iulfc/libraries, University Information Technology Services http://www.indiana.edu/~uits, and the School of Library and Information Science http://www.slis.indiana.edu

*Technical Services Analyst/Programmer position filled

I am pleased to announce that Carlton Stokes has accepted the position of Technical Services Analyst/Programmer, effective 2/18/02.

After working as the Slavic Bibliographer's assistant for almost two years, Carlton transferred to the old Serials Department in the spring of 1998 and took a position in the Check-in section. While there, he processed new receipts and pursued the acquisition of missing materials. When the opportunity arose at the beginning of 2000, Carlton moved to the Area Studies Unit in what had by then become the Technical Services Department. In Area Studies, he worked chiefly as a Slavic Copy Cataloger, but has also ordered Slavic materials and processed exchange receipts when needed.

Throughout his time in Tech Services, Carlton has served with the other volunteer DCSCs to provide the department with computer support. He has gained a great deal of technical expertise and brings a rich and varied background to his new position in Technical Services.

*Great News From the IU Foundation

IU TOP PUBLIC UNIVERSITY IN THE NATION IN TOTAL VOLUNTARY SUPPORT

IU rocketed to the top of the charts in fiscal 2001, becoming the top public university in the nation in Total Voluntary Support. Total Voluntary Support includes gifts from alumni, corporations, foundations and other friends, and research grants and contracts from the private sector. In fiscal 2001, IU received $302 million from these two sources.

In the past few years, IU has ranked 6th or 7th among all public universities in the country. Contributing to IU's leap to the top are the $105 million gift from the Lilly Endowment, the success of the $700 million campaign for IUPUI, and the Bloomington campaign that raised $504 million before it ended in December 2000.

The full story appeared in the April 5 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education. 

More good news...
IU ENDOWMENT GROWS IN A TIME OF DECLINE

According to an annual survey sponsored by the National Association of College and University Business Officers, two of every three college endowments declined in value in the 2001 fiscal year. The average endowment lost 3.6% of its value due to the decline in market value of stocks and the recession. During the same time period, the S&P 500 went down 14.8%. But IU's endowment increased in market value by 1.7%.

How did we do it? The investment department, the outside managers they engage, and the IUF Board of Directors Investment Committee plan for the inevitable ups and downs of the business cycle by diversifying and balancing our portfolio, our investment strategies, and our outside managers to protect the endowment, as much as possible, from volatility. At the same time that the Investments staff was working to protect gifts we already had, Foundation and IU development staff were having extraordinary success in raising new gifts, including gifts for endowment. At a time when other endowments in our size category ($500 million to $1 billion) posted an average return of negative 5.2%, their combined efforts resulted in an increase in the value of our endowment!

*Certificate of Appreciation Awarded from the Library of Congress

At the February, 2002 annual meeting of the Music OCLC Users Group, Ralph Papakhian was awarded a certificate of appreciation from the Library of Congress for his leadership in the Program for Cooperative Cataloging's NACO (Name Authority Cooperative Organization) Music Project.

Ralph has been involved in the NACO Music Project since its outset in 1988. His efforts have been local as well as nationwide. The NACO Music Project contributes names, uniform titles, and series to the national authority file. Ralph is regarded as largely responsible for the inception of the funnel concept developed in the Project that enables over 54 music libraries to contribute to NACO as a group.

In its history, the NACO Music Project has completed over 94,000 name authority records. Ralph has been closely involved in recruiting, training, reviewing, and supporting member libraries as they have made valuable contributions to the cataloging of music collections.

At the annual Music Library Association meeting that immediately followed the Music OCLC Users Group in February, Ralph was presented with the Richard S. Hill Award for the best article on music librarianship or article of a music-bibliographic nature published during 2000. Ralph's article, "Cataloging" was published in the special issue of Notes, entitled "Music Librarianship at the Turn of the Century," vol. 56, no. 3, pp. 581-590. The MLA Publications Awards Committee commented that Ralph's article provides a clear and detailed overview of the "description and organization of the world of musical objects [that] informs the novice as well as the seasoned practitioner. Through this work, one acquires an excellent perspective of the intellectual achievements that have taken place in this important field at an especially fruitful time." This special issue was republished later that year as a monograph of the same title by Scarecrow Press.

We congratulate Ralph on his outstanding achievements both in the practical and theoretical aspects of his work as a music cataloger as well as for his overall contributions to the profession.

*Jenkins Award

This years William Evans Jenkins Librarian Award has been given to Lois Heiser, Head Emerita of the Geology Library at Indiana University-Bloomington. The Jenkins Award, named after a former chief librarian at Indiana University, is made in recognition of truly outstanding contributions to the Indiana University Libraries or to the library profession in general by a present or former librarian at IU-Bloomington. The award will be presented to Heiser at a meeting of the Bloomington Library Faculty on April 29th, and she will also be recognized at the IU Libraries Retirement and Recognition Reception on May 3rd.

Heiser received her undergraduate degree in German language and literature and masters degree in library science from Indiana University. She served the IU Libraries for 40 years as student worker, support staff member, then librarian before her retirement in 2001. She is being recognized for her contribution to both Indiana University and the library profession. She played a significant role in achieving academic status for librarians and in the founding of the Indiana University Librarians Association, of which she served as the first president. As the Head of the Geology Library from 1979 to 2001, she provided strong leadership for the Libraries in the adoption of technology, from online catalogs to databases, CD-ROMs, Web sites, and digitized historical materials. Elizabeth Hanson, who was the acting Head after Lois, adds that providing excellent reference service was extremely important to her; users came first with her, and they knew it. Heiser served for eleven years on the Bloomington Faculty Council and its various committees, thirteen years on the Bloomington Library Faculty Council, and seven years on the Indiana University Library Faculty Council. Beyond Indiana University, she held the highest offices in the Geoscience Information Society and the American Federation of Teachers.

Heiser has also been much appreciated by her colleagues for her personal qualities: generosity, integrity, and unstinting support for others. Gary Wiggins, Coordinator of the Science Libraries, notes: Loiss insightful comments on various issues, coupled with her keen sense of humor, were often just the thing that was needed to resolve conflicting points of view. Julie Bobay, Walden Librarian, says that Lois served many roles for her as she developed her own career: wise advisor, trusted colleague, source of support, and a source of guaranteed laughter, often when it was most needed. Bobay adds: Like Mr. Jenkins, Lois remained true to her ideals of librarianship over several decades, never wavering from her commitment to excellence.

*Thanks to IU Librarians

When then-ALA president Nancy Kranich visited IU last year, she provided us a sense of how the School of Library and Information Science is perceived by the "outside world." Among her academic library colleagues in New York, IU SLIS's special strength is preparing outstanding academic librarians - librarians who understand and can work effectively in research libraries, and who often hold subject master's or other advanced degrees or training.

SLIS is committed to maintaining and building on that reputation. I would especially like to thank the IU librarians who have helped to develop and maintain our specializations and advanced courses:

  • African Studies: Marion Frank Wilson
  • Archives: Philip Bantin
  • Chemistry: Gary Wiggins
  • Government Information: Lou Malcomb, Andrea Morrison
  • Fine Arts Librarianship: B.J. Irvine
  • Health Sciences Librarianship: Fran Brahmi
  • Law Librarianship: Linda Fariss, Keith Buckley
  • Music Librarianship: Mary Wallace Davidson, Michael Fling, David Lasocki, A. Ralph Papakhian, Sue Stancu
  • Rare Books/Special Collections: Joel Silver, Saundra Taylor
  • Science Information: Robert Noel
  • Slavic Studies: Murlin Croucher
  • Social Sciences: Carolyn Walters, Emily Okada, Diane Dallis, Julie Bobay, Frank Quinn, Moira Smith, Celestina Wroth,
  • Lou Malcomb, Martha Brogan, Xiao Jason Yu

Thanks, too, to the IU Librarians who have taught the core courses on which these advanced electives build, and to those who have supervised SLIS interns, providing valuable introductions to professional life. My apologies if I have omitted other contributors. SLIS students and graduates continue to benefit from and appreciate the strengths of this university.

*Digital Atlas of Southwestern Indiana

The Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) has recently completed a digital atlas of southwestern Indiana. Developed with a Geographic Information System or GIS, the computer-based maps for the twenty-six counties of the southwestern part of the state were compiled from a variety of public sources, including federal and state agencies, as well as IGS files and records. More than 170 layers of geographic information have been assembled that can be used to construct unique maps for numerous uses.

The various map layers include information on the distribution of highways, railroads, numerous public buildings and structures (schools, dams), environmental and historical features, geology, mineral deposits, mines and quarries, water, oil and gas wells, and many others.

In producing many of the maps, Geological Survey personnel worked closely with the engineering and environmental consulting firm Bernardin, Lochmueller, and Associates of Evansville. The work was funded by a grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).

The digital atlas should be a powerful planning tool for governmental agencies at all levels, as well as businesses and industries. I would hope that it can be used to aid in attracting new businesses to Indiana, for it provides custom answers to many of the specific questions prospective developers ask.

The digital atlas is available on the Indiana Geological Survey's Website at http://igs.indiana.edu The interested user can construct custom maps from the various layers, and pan and zoom across the maps. There is also a capability to print any custom-composed map. Each of the individual map layers can be freely downloaded.

*Ameritech Fellows Program

From TLTL about Ameritech Fellows Program...

The Ameritech Fellows program (http://amfellow.iu.edu) provides IU faculty with support for instructional projects that effectively incorporate information technology. Proposals for the fourth round of Ameritech Fellows awards are due by September 9, 2002, earlier than in previous years.

IU Bloomington faculty who plan to submit Ameritech Fellows proposals are encouraged to work with TLTL staff (or their school or unit's faculty development programs) as they develop their project proposals. TLTL can help you articulate your instructional goals, choose your technologies, and develop your budget. Should your proposal be awarded, TLTL can also provide support as you implement the project.

The Request for Proposals (http://amfellow.iu.edu/rfp.html) encourages applicants to include a letter of support from an instructional consultant at their campus teaching and learning centers with their proposal materials. In order for TLTL to provide you with an effective letter, we request that you schedule an appointment to meet with our staff during the week of August 12-16, or earlier, so that we may work with you as you develop your proposal.

*The New IUCAT

The Bloomington Unicorn Users Group is offering short demos and Q&A sessions on the new IUCAT. The test database for IUCAT is http://iucat-test.ucs.indiana.edu:12200. While much is the same in terms of functionality, there are a few differences and changes about which all library staff should know. These sessions will give people the opportunity to hear about changes, witness some sample searches, and get questions answered.

There is no need to sign up for these, but they will be held the following dates at these times in Main, E174 Conference Room. It would be a good idea if at least one person from all campus service areas attend a meeting and see firsthand the new look and upgrades.

Tuesday, August 20 4:00 - 5:00 pm
Wednesday, August 21 4:00 - 5:00 pm
Thursday, August 29 11:00 am - 12:00 noon
Wednesday, September 4 4:00 - 5:00 pm

A brief outline of what will be covered in these demos will be mailed to BL-LIBG-Support Staff, BL-LIBG-PA's, BL-LIBG-IUB Librarians. We look forward to seeing you there.

*In Memory Of Julieann V. Nilson, IUB

Julieann V. Nilson, whose employment with Indiana University Libraries spanned four decades, died peacefully Friday, October 25th from complications of cancer.

Born July 19, 1938, in Chicago, Julie earned her B.A. in English at Indiana University in 1963, and then, while working for the Indiana University Libraries, completed her M.L.S. in 1966. She was employed by Indiana University as a cataloger, department head in Acquisitions, and most recently as the Librarian for Latin American, Iberian, and Chicano-Rique�o Studies.

From her early language training in Portuguese under the auspices of a Ford Foundation grant to her professional service as the Libraries' Latin American Studies cataloger and her more recent leadership in the CIC's coordinated preservation microfilming of Latin American materials, Nilson strengthened IU's collections and services. She was a founding member of MOLLAS, the Midwest Organization of Libraries for Latin American Studies, and hosted their annual meeting in Bloomington, Ind. in August 2001. Her professional affiliations include the American Library Association, ACRL, LITA, and ALCTS, Indiana Library Association, and the Indiana University Librarians Association (InULA). She devoted her recent professional activity to SALALM (Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials).

Julie's leadership in library and faculty governance committees is legendary, and she leaves a long list of accomplishments and partnerships on the campus. In 1990, Julie received The William Evan Jenkins Librarian Award in recognition of her contributions to librarianship and the Indiana University Libraries. Her many colleagues and friends in the Libraries will especially remember Julie's commitment to advancing faculty status for all librarians, her sense of humor, and her devotion to mentoring those new to the profession.

The local community also benefited from Julie's energy and involvement. She was an avid arts collector, supporting many local artists and craftsmen as well as serving on the Bloomington Area Arts Council (BAAC). Memorial contributions may be made in her name to the Community Kitchen, Middle Way House, BAAC, and the Monroe County Humane Society.

*Librarian Effective Practices Clearinghouse

Effective Practices Clearinghouse accepting submissions

How many times have you thought to yourself, "someone else in another library MUST have already figured out a better way to do this"? ACRL's Effective Practices Committee may have an answer for you. The Committee, charged by ACRL to devise a method for recognizing effective practices in academic libraries and sharing them with ACRL members and other interested librarians, has developed a Web-based clearinghouse for effective practices in academic libraries. The scope of the clearinghouse will span all areas of library programs, services, facilities, technology, and initiatives. Librarians submit their effective practices directly to the ACRL Web site. Practices are then reviewed to see if they meet the criteria listed above. Once accepted, ACRL will post the practice on the Web site and send the submitting library a letter acknowledging its contribution to the Effective Practices clearinghouse. The Committee's goal is to be inclusive rather than exclusive. Librarians looking for ideas to improve specific practices in their own libraries or just shopping for good ideas will be able to browse by category and (eventually) search by keyword. We invite you to visit ACRL's Effective Practices Web site and submit your own effective practice. The URL is http://www.ala.org/acrl/ep/.

While we are excited that Xiao has this new opportunity, we will miss his expertise and the many services he has assisted us with, specifically in GIMSS: Government Information, Microforms and Statistical Services. While at IUB, he has served as the GIMSS representative to BERSERC and on the Web Development Team. I would also like to thank him for his work on developing an effective website on Data Services and Resources (http://www.indiana.edu/~libgpd/data/main.html) on a preliminary survey of social science data resources on campus including grants to support the research involved, and the many training efforts he has made with the GIMSS staff.

*Wordsworth In Parliament: The Debate Over Copyright Extension

WORDSWORTH IN PARLIAMENT: THE DEBATE OVER COPYRIGHT EXTENSION, 1839-42
MARTHA WOODMANSEE (Department of English and Comparative
Literature, Case Western Reserve University)
Lilly Library Lounge--4.p.m., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2002

Last month the case of *Eldred v. Ashcroft* was brought before the Supreme Court to challenge the constitutionality of the Copyright Term Extension Act of 1998. The eleventh such extension in only forty years, the "Sonny Bono Act" increased authors' exclusive rights by 20 years to life plus 70 years post mortem, further eroding public access to information. In the seminar we shall examine the extended Parliamentary debate in which the engine of this trend, the romanticized conception of creative production at the center of the copyright law, achieved its present efficacy.

***

MARTHA WOODMANSEE is author of THE AUTHOR, ART, AND THE MARKET: REREADING THE HISTORY OF AESTHETICS (Columbia University Press, 1994) and Co-Editor, with Peter Jaszi and Mark Osteen respectively, of two extremely influential volumes, THE CONSTRUCTION OF AUTHORSHIP: TEXTUAL APPROPRIATION IN LAW AND LITERATURE (Duke University Press, 1994; this a reprint of Vol. 10, No.2 of the _Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal_ [1992]) and NEW ECONOMIC CRITICISM: STUDIES AT THE INTERSECTION OF LITERATURE AND ECONOMICS (Routledge, 1999). She has published widely on Aesthetics, German and English Romantic Literature, and the History and Conception of Authorship, and has been long-time Executive Director of the Society for Critical Exchange. The material for both her lecture and seminar session arises from research conducted with the aid of a Guggenheim Fellowship this past year.

*Lecture: A Perspective on Intellectual Property, 12/11/02 

Thomson ISI Samuel Lazerow Memorial Lecture:

A Perspective on Intellectual Property

Wednesday, December 11, 2002
2:30 - 4:00 pm
Indiana University, Bloomington
Room #033 Main Library (Auditorium)
Reception follows

By Nancy Kranich
Past President of the American Library Association

How can we reframe the debate about access to information and the need for democratic discourse in the digital age?

In a time of information abundance, librarians and other public interest groups must advocate daily to ensure the free flow of ideas. Nevertheless, citizens' rights such as fair use, equitable access, and freedom of information totter on the verge of extinction as the free flow of ideas is curtailed by the demands of the marketplace. Copyright and civil society scholars have adopted the metaphor of the commons in discussing an architecture of democratic culture as an approach to reclaiming the public's information assets. Librarians have joined forces with these opinion leaders to reassert the public interest into the discourse about information access. As stewards of the public's information assets, librarians can use the metaphor of the commons to stake a new claim for the free and open exchange of ideas in order to ensure the survival of our digital-age democracy.

*Marty Joachim Retiring, IUB

Marty Joachim is retiring from the IU Libraries after many years of service, but we are very happy to announce that he plans to stay on working as a volunteer three days a week in the Western European Original Cataloging Unit and as a volunteer for two days a week at the Lilly Library.

Marty's career began way back in 1959, when he worked in the library's filing section. He received his BA in Classical Languages and Literatures from Indiana University in 1961 and his MA in 1962. He returned in 1963 as a student assistant, and his chief responsibility was bibliographic searching. In 1966, he received his MA in Library Science from Indiana University.

In February of 1965, he was hired as a cataloger in the former Cataloging Dept. in the old Main Library, and he was responsible for cataloging materials in classical languages and literatures, philosophy, archaeology, history and philosophy of science, religion, comparative literature, history, psychology, and physical education. He also cataloged all materials in Latin, Greek, and Romanian.

In 1977, he accepted the position of Head of the Cataloging Department, replacing Miss Mary Helen Stanger, who retired. He held that position until 1988, when he became the Principal Cataloger. Cataloging has always been Marty's first love, and he is recognized both locally and nationally as an expert in the field. We all marvel at his ability to not only cite cataloging rules, but also to cite the exact rule numbers!

Marty was the person chiefly responsible for implementing the NACO program here at IU, and he has served as a trainer and reviewer locally and at many other institutions over the years. He was the manager, coordinator, and grant writer for IU's Title IIC grants for Early English Books, 1641-1700 (Wing STC), Three Centuries of English & American Plays, 1500-1830, and English & American Drama of the Nineteenth Century. He also was the manager of the original cataloging component of a Title IIC grant project for the retrospective conversion of folklore materials.

For several years, in addition to his regular duties, Marty also has been training catalogers at the University Archives and reviewing their work.

In 1987, he was the co-recipient of the William Evans Jenkins award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to the Indiana University Libraries and to the library profession in general. In 1988, he was a recipient of an InULA Research Incentive Grant. He has been a member of the Editorial Board of Cataloging and Classification Quarterly since 1985. Since 1992, he has been a member of the Indiana University Review and Selection Committee for Wells Scholars Program.

Marty has served on numerous local, regional, and national library committees and task forces during his many years as an IU librarian. He has many important publications to his credit. The latest, published by Haworth Press this year, is Historical Aspects of Cataloging and Classification, which he edited. This book includes articles by many authors from around the world.

We wish Marty the very best in his retirement, and we are very happy that he will be continuing in his service to the IU Libraries as a volunteer. We will continue to enjoy his unparalleled cataloging expertise, his problem-solving skills, and his droll sense of humor. Thank you, Marty, for all you have done for the IU Libraries.

Library News and Events

*Sheet Music Metadata Harvesting

The Digital Library Program has been working with UCLA and Johns Hopkins University since March 2002 to create a sheet music metadata harvesting service, using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). In November, we brought up an OAI version 2 data service provider and began offering metadata for the DeVincent Sheet Music Collection from Lilly Library and other collections. We also participated in Mellon-funded usability testing, which will be the basis for changes in the coming months. Currently, the service provides more than 60,000 records for both digitized and undigitzed sheet music harvested from the Library of Congress, Johns Hopkins, UCLA, and IU. Although it is still under development, you are invited to search the database and see how it works: http://digidev.library.ucla.edu/oaisheetmusic/. Over the coming months, we will be adding metadata for more sheet music at the four institutions and other institutions and making improvements to the searching and interface. For more information about the project, see the article in the fall 2002 issue of The Source, "Searching for Sheet Music."

My thanks to everyone who has contributed to this project to date, including Elizabeth Johnson, Becky Cape, Harriette Hemassi, Jenn Riley, Michelle Dalmau, Arwen Hutt, Jon Dunn, and Kurt Whitsel. I would also like to thank any of you who participated in the focus groups or usability testing last month. Your input was invaluable. We have lots of work ahead of us but have made incredible progress in a short time.
