*Farewell to the Brands

The IUB Libraries purchased books to honor the service of Myles and Peg Brand on their departure from the university. Letters presented by Suzanne Thorin detailed the acquistitions and the reasons for their purchase:

[To Myles] As a heartfelt expression of our gratitude for your support of the IU Libraries, we have added the following books to the universitys collections in your honor: Aesthetics: Sources in the Nineteenth Century, John V. Price, editor. This eight-volume set features the most important and least accessible Anglo-American 19th-century aesthetics texts....Your steadfast support has benefited the IU Libraries immeasurably. Your advocacy for the construction of the Ruth Lilly Auxiliary Library Facility, your decision to name the Main Library in honor of Chancellor Wells, and your infusion of annual funds for our collections have served the university well.

[To Peg] In honor of your lasting influence on the academic community through your artistry, scholarship and commitment, the IU Libraries have added a distinctive artists book to the universitys collections: Limestone Lives: Voices from the Indiana Stonebelt by IU M.F.A. student Kate Ferrucci. This limited-edition, hand-printed book pays tribute to Indiana limestone carvers with striking imagery and personal histories.

Peg responded with appreciation that the acquistions were "such thoughtful gestures and so carefully chosen. What a wonderful way to remember: a new treasure or two for the library."

*Indiana University SLIS Dean Announces Resignation

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Blaise Cronin, dean of Indiana University's (IU) School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) since 1991, has announced his intention to step down as dean with effect from June 30, 2003. After a year's sabbatical leave, he will return to the faculty to pursue his many research and other interests.

During Cronin's 12 years as dean the School of Library and Information Science has undergone significant transformation, and it is consistently ranked as one of the nation's premier programs. The school's faculty, with disciplinary backgrounds in computer science, information science, political science, cognitive science, linguistics, sociology, and library science, comprises some of the best-known scholars in the field. In 2000, the school's faculty was rated #1 in North America for its scholarly productivity and impact. In recent years, SLIS has established research centers in social informatics, information retrieval, and information visualization, and faculty members have been successful in securing external research support, notably from the National Science Foundation.

Dean Cronin also oversaw a major restructuring of the school's programs across the state of Indiana. During the early nineties SLIS phased out its programs in six locations, and greatly strengthened its presence on both the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses. At the same time, new degrees in information science (master's and Ph.D) were introduced, along with an array of joint/dual degree programs. In recent years the school's enrollments have reached record levels, reflecting the high standing in which SLIS's curricula and faculty are held, both nationally and internationally.

Blaise Cronin is the Rudy Professor of Information Science at Indiana University Bloomington. He is concurrently Visiting Professor of Information Science at the Manchester Metropolitan University, England and also Visiting Professor in the School of Computing at Napier University, Edinburgh, Scotland. From 1985-1991 he held the Chair of Information Science at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, where he was Head of the Department of Information Science in the Strathclyde Business School.

Professor Cronin is the author/editor of 300 research articles, monographs, technical reports, conference papers, and other publications, and is one of the most widely published and highly cited scholars in information science. His principal areas of research are scholarly communication, citation analysis, scientific collaboration, and cybermetrics. He has also published extensively on topics such as information warfare, strategic intelligence, knowledge management, and information marketing. Professor Cronin is Editor of the prestigious Annual Review of Information Science and Technology, and sits on many editorial boards, including JASIST, IJIM, LQ, and Scientometrics.

Dr. Cronin has taught, researched, or consulted in more than 30 countries: clients have included the World Bank, U.S. Department of Justice, Asian Development Bank, Unesco, Brazilian Ministry of Science & Technology, European Commission, British Council, Her Majesty's Treasury, Hewlett-Packard, British Library, Commonwealth Agricultural Bureaux, Association for Information Management, and Chemical Abstracts Service. Professor Cronin was a founding director of Crossaig, an electronic publishing start-up in Scotland, which was acquired in 1992 by Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) in Philadelphia. Professor Cronin was educated at Trinity College Dublin (M.A.) and the Queen's University of Belfast (Ph.D., D.S.Sc.) In 1997, he was awarded the degree Doctor of Letters (D.Litt., honoris causa) by Queen Margaret University College, Edinburgh for his scholarly contributions to information science.

*Marian Shaaban Retiring, IUB

Marian Shaaban is retiring from the IU Libraries after many years of service, but we are very happy to announce that he plans to continue to work on a variety of projects including the International Bureau of Education digitization project. Colleagues and friends are invited to come by GIMSS for cake and punch on February 5, 2003 between 2 - 3 p.m. to wish Marian the best in her retirement.

Born Marian Tietjen in Americus, Georgia, Marian Shaaban received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science in 1960 from the University of Georgia and the Masters of Library Science from Florida State University in 1962. In 1962 Marian accepted the position of Reference Librarian at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, with special focus on working with United States documents and a small United Nations collection. Upon receiving encouragement from the University of Tennessee Library to study another language, she selected Russian. In February 1969, Marian initiated her study of Russian in the Slavic Languages and Literatures Department at Indiana University--Bloomington.

Her career with the IUB Libraries began in September 1969 when she became a reference librarian in the Reference Department. Following two years of general reference experience, she accepted the position of International Documents Librarian within the Government Publications Department in September 1971. Marian has served as the collection manager for international governmental organization (IGO) publications and documents and as Depository Librarian for the United Nations and the European Union collections since that date. She was promoted to full rank in 1989. As the EU Depository Librarian, it was a natural fit when she was asked in July 1999 to become the bibliographer for West European Studies. She has worked with this program to develop a collection program that meets its needs, specializing in European integration and social sciences of Western Europe, and working with the faculty and students of the West European Studies Department.

Marian has been a leading member of the International Documents Task Force of the Government Documents Round Table (GODORT) of the American Library Association (ALA) and most recently served as its Agency Liaison Program Coordinator. She has been active in the Western European Studies Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries of ALA. She has served on the Marta Lange/CQ Award Committee for the Law and Political Science Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL). She is also a member of the European Union Studies Association. She has regularly attended the conferences of these groups as well as the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), InDIGO (Indiana Networking for Documents and Information of Government Organizations), and the Indiana Library Federation, when possible.

With Robert Goehlert, Marian recently completed a new edition of United Nations Documentation: A Basic Guide, (2nd edition, Bloomington, IN: Center for the Study of Global Change, 2002) but perhaps is best known for the publication, Guide to Country Information in International Governmental Organization Publications (Bethesda, MD: Congressional Information Service, 1996.) She served as editor-in-chief and authored numerous sections for several of the International Government Organizations included in this major reference work. During 2001, Marian assisted with a grant proposal with the Center for the Study of Global Change towards digitization of IBE (International Bureau of Education) collections.

We wish Marian all the best as she retires. We know that she will enjoy the extra time to spend with her children, Layla and Laith, and her husband, Kadhim and hope that she will enjoy travels to all the places from which she had obtained documents for our collections.

Recently the William & Gayle Cook Music Library has been the subject of several articles. The first, by the library's head Mary Wallace Davidson, was published as, "La biblioth?que de musique William et Gayle Cook de l'universit? de l'Indiana," in Bulletin des biblioth?ques de France in January 2002. A considerably revised version was published in English as, "Indiana University's William & Gayle Cook Music Library: An Introduction" in Notes: Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association 59, no. 2 (December 2002). The library's head of collection development R. Michael Fling, currently the Assistant Editor of Notes, was responsible for several of the improvements. In the same issue, former staff member and alumnus John Andereis contributed an extensive article, based on archival resources here and elsewhere, about the music library's first head, Ethel Louise Lyman (1893-1974). Variations, and Variations2 (the later currently a research project under the aegis of the Digital Libraries Initiative-Phase 2, funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities) were also described in Mary's article, "Recent Trends in Technology in American Music Libraries," Fontes artis musicae, 48, no. 4 (2001 [i.e. Dec. 2002]).

*Send a Victorian Valentine

The Lilly Library offers a glimpse into the history of Valentine traditions in the online exhibition, "A Flowering of Affection: Victorian Valentine Cards at the Lilly Library." Designed and written by IUB Public Services Librarian Erika Dowell, the exhibition includes a selection of 19th-century Valentine's Day cards, from the sentimental to the comic. "The quality of the cards was as variable as the themes they represented," Erika writes. "Though the dominant theme for Valentines would always be love, comic and even insulting Valentines were also common." Take, for instance, the un-Hallmark-like card that features an illustration of a woman rejecting her suitor in a rather chilly fashion (with a bucket of cold water!). It reads, "Here's a pretty cool reception, At least you'll say there's no deception, It says as plain as it can say, Old fellow you'd best stop away." To view the exhibit online and to send your own Valentine greeting, visit: http://www.indiana.edu/~liblilly/valentines/valentine.html.

Lilly Library Lounge--Monday, February 17, 2003

In accordance with the United States Constitution's reference to "authors," the 1976 Copyright Act provides that initial ownership of copyright belongs to a work's author. The concept of an author as an individual reflects, to some scholars, a romantic view of the nature of authorship. Increasingly, however, works of art, music, and literature result from the collaboration of two of more individuals, who under appro- priate circumstances are considered by the law as joint authors and co-owners of the work. My talk will examine the meaning of "joint authorship"--specifically, how the current Copyright Act determines when two or more authors will share ownership rights in a collaborative work. Much recent scholarship has concentrated on the historical development of the "author" and the question of whether authors should have the right--natural or otherwise--to control their works. Others have examined the scope of rights afforded to an author. Instead of entering these debates, I will approach the question: who is a joint author under the law of copyright? I will center my talk on several examples from the case law, which will demonstrate how joint authorship is disfavored in the law. I conclude that the narrow interpretation of joint authorship manifested in this case law results more from a preference for judicial economy, and economic efficiency, than from an ideological adherence to the romantic notion of individualized creation.

*History of the Book Seminar Session--March 24--Christopher De Hamel, IUB

This session will be followed by a public lecture on Tuesday afternoon, March 25, at 4 p.m. in the Lilly Library's Lincoln Room, entitled: WHAT IS A BOOK OF HOURS, HOW WAS IT MADE, AND HOW DO WE KNOW? Dr. de Hamel is a fine speaker and members of the History of the Book Seminar will probably want to attend both sessions (and coming early on both days might be a good idea).

MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPTS IN THE LILLY LIBRARY: HOW A MANUSCRIPT SPECIALIST
GOES ABOUT HIS DAILY ROUNDS
Christopher de Hamel (Donnelley Fellow Librarian,
Corpus Christi College, Cambridge)
Lilly Library Lounge--Monday, March 24--4 p.m.

In a workshop similar to an exercise conducted in Medical Schools around the country and world, members of the Lilly Library staff will put before Christopher de Hamel medieval manuscripts in the Lilly Collection (both whole books and fragments) that he has never seen before and has no prior knowledge of. Dr. de Hamel will then demonstrate what he looks for and how he goes about identifying the nature, identity, and provenance of a given manuscript. This exercise will offer a rare chance to see a world- renowned expert in medieval manuscripts either face total humiliation or triumph over the unknown and justify a warranted reputation.

***

CHRISTOPHER DE HAMEL worked for 25 years in the Western Manuscripts Department at Sotheby's, London, rising to Head of that Department. Since September 2000 he has been Donnelley Fellow Librarian at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, which college library holds the collection of Matthew Parker (Elizabeth I's Archbishop of Canterbury from 1559 to 1575). Dr. De Hamel is the author of a goodly number of Guides to Medieval Manu- scripts and several books, most notably A HISTORY OF ILLUMINATED MANU- SCRIPTS (Phaidon, 1994; paperback, 1997), GLOSSED BOOKS OF THE BIBLE AND THE ORIGINS OF THE PARIS BOOKTRADE (1994), and THE BOOK: A HISTORY OF THE BIBLE (Phaidon, 2001). He was the subject of a delightful profile in *The New Yorker* of May 29, 1989.

Professor Bell will be discussing her recently published book, Policing Hatred: Law Enforcement, Civil Rights, and Hate Crime. Policing Hatred explores the interaction of race and law enforcement in the controversial area of hate crime. Although the nation's attention has been focused on high profile hate crimes like the dragging death of James Byrd and the murder of Matthew Shepard, thousands of individuals each year are attacked because of their race, religion or sexual orientation. In hate crimes, stereotypes about criminal roles are often reversed: most of the accused tend to be white, while most of the victims are not.

*History of the Book Seminar Session-MASSIMO OSSI-Monday, April 7, IUB

This semester's penultimate session in the History of the Book Seminar will be led this coming Monday, April 7, by MASSIMO OSSI of the School of Music's Musicology Department. His subject is FROM THE PATRON TO THE MARKETPLACE: 16th-CENTURY PRINTERS AND THE CREATION OF NEW MUSICAL GENRES. His talk will begin at 4 p.m., in the LILLY LIBRARY LOUNGE, with our usual coffee and cookies starting a half-hour before that.

FROM THE PATRON TO THE MARKETPLACE: 16th-CENTURY PRINTERS AND THE CREATION OF NEW MUSICAL GENRES Massimo Ossi (School of Music, IUB) Lilly Library Lounge--Monday, April 7, 2003

This talk offers an overview of the history of music publishing in the 16th century and of its impact on the patronage, composition, and consumption of music. The development, around 1500, of methods that made printing music easy and inexpensive altered radically the patterns of production and consumption of both individual compositions and entire genres. The dramatic expansion of the market for musical prints ranging from devotional books to collections of erotic madrigals and chansons attests not only to the popularity of music as a form of entertainment but also to the rapid spread of musical literacy outside courts and cathedrals.

Within fifty years of Ottaviano Petrucci's first book of music, published in Venice in 1501, a number of specialized printing firms were issuing hundreds of volumes for distribution throughout Europe. When known, prices and press runs make it clear that performing music from notation was not a skill limited to professionals and highly educated courtiers but was within the reach of even relatively modest households. The various layouts of the books themselves--from the sets of partbooks sold for polyphonic vocal music to the "table" layout of English airs and the score format of the early 17th century monodies--bear clues to the ways music was performed.

***

MASSIMO OSSI is Associate Professor of Musicology in our School of Music, having come to Indiana in that Fall of 2001 from the Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester where he taught for a dozen years. He is general editor of the series MUSIC AT THE COURTS OF ITALY and on the Editorial Board for the COLLECTED WORKS OF LUCA MARENZIO. His book, DIVINING THE ORACLE: ASPECTS OF MONTEVERDI'S SECONDA PRATTICA, is to appear later this year from the University of Chicago Press. He is presently Acting Chair of the Musicology Department.

*History of the Book Seminar Session--Monday, April 21, IUB

The final History of the Book Seminar Session for the semester will be led by SARAH KNOTT of our History Department. Her subject is SENSIBILITY AND READERSHIP IN EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY PHILADELPHIA, and the session is to be held this coming Monday, APRIL 21, in the LILLY LIBRARY LOUNGE. This is the talk that had to be postponed this past January. All Librarians are cordially invited to attend. Coffee, fruit juice, and cookies begin at 3:30.

SENSIBILITY AND READERSHIP IN EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY PHILADELPHIA
Sarah Knott (Department of History, IUB)
Lilly Library Lounge--April 21, 2003

The literary history of American sentimentalism has focussed especially on the sentimental novels of the Early American Republic: those tear-jerkers that seemed to preach morality and that imagined the inclusion of social groups excluded from the political constituency of the Constitution. Using the extraordinary career of Philadelphia bookseller Robert Bell, "Provedore to the Sentimentalists", this paper will examine an earlier urban print culture of sensibility in terms of genre and the changing contours and possibilities of readership.

***

SARAH KNOTT is an Assistant Professor of History, having begun her appointment at Indiana in the fall of 2001 and having earned a D.Phil at the University of Oxford in 1999. In between those two dates she was a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford and a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of London. She has co-edited a volume of essays, WOMEN, GENDER AND ENLIGHTENMENT (Palgrave, forthcoming 2004) and is engaged in writing a book-length study entitled A CULTURAL HISTORY OF SENSIBILITY IN REVOLUTIONARY AMERICA.

*Indiana Online Users Group - Spring 2003 Meeting

There is still time to sign-up for the following IOLUG (Indiana Online Users Group) Program:

Moving to Online Learning Environments

May 16, 2003

Indiana Online Users Group Spring 2003 Meeting

As librarians, we all need more time, more of us, and more ways of delivering instruction to our clientele when they are available for it. So, have you ever thought about converting that popular library workshop or instruction session to an online learning experience (OLE)? Dr. Noriko Hara, Assistant Professor of Information Science, SLIS-Bloomington, will share her expertise and insights concerning what libraries can do to assess a need, plan, create and implement an online training course or instructional unit. She will also touch upon topics such as the basics of a good online tutorial, the expected learning curve for the end user, minimal technical requirements, curriculum ideas, marketing to the public, and available software.

In the afternoon we will broaden out our definition of an OLE with Jeff Humphreys presentation. He will discuss his work concerning the Indiana Library Videoconferencing project and workshops available via video streaming for librarians to brush up their skills. Julie Moline, University College Instructor and Librarian at IUPUI, will describe how her institution modified an existing information literacy tutorial to fit the needs of her institution. Rebecca Sanders, Coordinator of Distance Education, and Larry Cunningham, Director, both at Jennings County Public Library will address the service and technical issues of serving as a site for the College Cooperative Southeast Distance Education program. Ms. Sanders will also discuss her instructional involvement with Phoenix Online, a leading online university.

*Herbert S. and Virginia White Professional Development Award 2003

The 2002-2003 White Award Committee is pleased to announce that Christopher Harter, Reference Associate at Lilly Library, Indiana University Libraries, Bloomington, has been selected as the recipient of the Herbert S. and Virginia White Professional Development Award given by Indiana University Libraries. This award was established in 1995 to support the process of individually motivated professional growth. It is the ninth year that the award has been given.

Mr. Harter's project is to conduct bibliographical research of American literary magazines (or "little magazines") in the 1960s and 1970s. It was a particular era of literary magazine publishing "because the decreased costs of production resulted in tremendous increase in the number of such magazines." Mr. Harter will use the White Award of $2,500 to visit a number of collections including the Sukov Little Magazine Collection at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Poetry/Rare Books Collection at Sunny-Buffalo, the Fales Library at New York University. Mr. Harter's research will result in a descriptive bibliography of significant titles.

The committee wishes to thank all those who applied for this award.

As the IUB Libraries' representative, Mechael will attend regional and statewide INCOLSA meetings. She will voice our concerns at meetings and will also communicate information to IUB librarians about discussions held at the INCOLSA meetings.

*Retirement & Recognition thank you, IUB

Please join me in giving sincere thanks to all our library colleagues who contributed so much time and effort to make the Retirement & Recognition Reception on May 9 such a success. And please give special thanks to Shawny Taysom and Carole Williams for coordinating the whole event. Without them and all the volunteers who helped on the day of the reception, it would not have been possible.

I would also like to thank Ann Bristow and the Reference Department staff for making arrangements to help patrons who may have needed to use reference materials during the reception and the Building Services crew for setting up the room for us.

For the many of us who were there, it was a great party. The flowers and other decorations were lovely; the food, cake, and punch were good and plentiful; and everything was well organized. We had a record number of retired staff and emeritus librarians in attendance.

Activities like this bring staff together from libraries all across the campus, making us realize we are part of the same organization. I was told by several retirees that they are already looking forward to next year's party!

*Green Boxes, IUB

GREEN BOX GIVE-AWAY!!!!

As you know for many years (and we still do) Gov't Publications used green gaylord boxes to house unbound publications. Since many many of these are going to ALF, our need for green boxes has been decreased if not almost eliminated. We have several hundred of these in various sizes that we need to discard. Before doing so I wanted to offer them to you.

There are basically four kinds:

small slant cut (902s) (7.5 x 10.5)

large slant cut (9 x 12.25)

large straight cut (9.25 x 12.25)

oversize with flip lid (12 x 15 x 3)

I have placed a sample of each on a desk by the GIMSS reference desk with a sheet asking you to give me your name and how many you want of each kind. We will then ship them to you in campus mail or have the GMSA crew deliver them. If you want you can send email but make sure and state what kind and how many you want.

DEADLINE: June 15th, 2003..... After that the majority will be discarded.

*Find Information Page, IUB

TRANSITION TO THE IUB LIBRARIES "FIND INFORMATION" PAGE

The IUB Libraries have made a transition from the "Locate Fulltext Electronic Journal and Newspaper Titles" tool developed and maintained by Jian Liu to the new "Find Information" page maintained by the Libraries Web Team. This new page is based on data supplied by the Libraries Web Editorial Board along with a customized list of electronic resources provided by the subscription tracking company, Serials Solutions.

Following in the footsteps of Jian has turned out to be quite a challenge for the Web Team as they developed the new "Find Information" page. This period of transition received close scrutiny not only by our internal and external users but also by a Review Team chaired by Roger Beckman and assisted by team members Ann Bristow, Jian Liu, Jo McClamroch, Mary Popp, Carolyn Walters, and Julie Bobay. This team was charged with working with the Editorial Board to determine how best to describe ejournals and other full-text resources to which we subscribe and to work with Serials Solutions to produce the most comprehensive and up-to-date list of IUB-accessible electronic resources as possible. The Review Team has now completed its work and has endorsed the transition from the "Locate Fulltext Electronic Journal and Newspaper Titles" to the "Find Information" page.

As of the end of May, the "Locate Fulltext Electronic Journal and Newspaper Titles" page is no longer available. For those who have bookmarked this site directly, there is an explanatory page redirecting users to the "Find Information" pages, along with instructions on how to search.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jian Liu for his outstanding service to the IUB Libraries in creating and maintaining the original website providing access to title and holding information for our electronic resources. Jian initiated this service with support and encouragement from the Reference Department, a small amount of funds from the Walden Endowment, and a large amount of hard work, intelligence, and creativity on his own part.

Jian began compiling the electronic resources in February 1999. He used free, open-source software written in PERL, called Links, at http://www.gossamer-threads.com/scripts/links/index.htm. The service was installed and ran from a SUN Ultra1 machine under the desk in his office.

Due to heavy use, Jian upgraded the software in December 1999 to the commercial version called Links SQL, which increased the searching speed dramatically. The price of the software was $350, an amount happily paid by Julie Bobay, the Walden Librarian at that time, from her Walden Endowment fund.

In July 2000, the machine in Jian's office "began to act up." The front-end PERL component was moved to UITS and installed in the University's central web server, and the back-end MYSQL component was moved to LIT and installed on a more powerful dedicated server.

Again in December 2001, Jian upgraded the software with financial support from Walden funds. This migration added the browse function, thus making common, one-word titles easy to find and allowing for alphabetical browsing of titles. At this time, LIBERA began to feed individual titles to the database even while Jian's oversight and individual involvement continued.

In September 2002, after an unexpected crash of the LIT server, the back-end MYSQL component was migrated to UITS and installed on dedicated database server. Jian restored data from the backup and brought up the service quickly.

The number of titles included in the database reached 30,000 in September 2002, and monthly search logs recorded a high of 22,000 searches in November 2002.

The IUB Libraries have benefited greatly from Jian's project, both as it progressed and as it helped shape our future.

Thank you, Jian, for your excellent work and your dedication to the Libraries and to the students and faculty we serve!

The Walden Summer Session will begin on July 6 and officially end on July 25. About 400 doctoral students and a smaller number of Master's students will attend the session, for a total of 450. Approximately half the students will leave on July 18 or 19.

There will be no Walden library in the student dormitory this summer, but we and our student assistants will staff the "Walden Library Concierge" office in E-172 during most hours the Main Library is open.

Graduation will be held in the IU Auditorium at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 19. The ceremony will include the investiture of Dr. Paula Peinovich as President and Provost of Walden University. You are welcome to attend the ceremony and the reception that follows (at Showalter Fountain).

Walden students, faculty, and staff will be categorized as IU undergrads and will be issued library cards. UITS will give them IU usernames and passwords so they can access all electronic resources.

Our Summer Document Delivery Service will permit them to request materials from participating Bloomington campus libraries and from libraries on the IU regional campuses, but not from any other institution. They will be required to return all books before they leave campus, and we have asked them to return books to the campus library from which they borrowed them or to the Main Library, which is where books from regional campuses are also to be returned.

Please visit our Summer Session site for more information:

http://www.lib.waldenu.edu/summer

*"U.S. Steel Gary Works Collection" added to RLG Cultural Materials

The "U.S. Steel Gary Works Photograph Collection: 1906-1941" is one of the latest collections to be added to RLG Cultural Materials, a licensed multi-media digital resource. This collection was created by the Digital Library Program working with Steve McShane at the Calumet Regional Archive at IU Northwest, which houses the photographs. To search and browse the collection, it is linked from the Cultural Materials home page: http://culturalmaterials.rlg.org/cmiprod/workspace.jsp. This is the second Indiana University collection to be included in RLG Cultural Materials. The Frank M. Hohenberger Collection from the Lilly Library was one of the first collections to be offered in this online resource. Although the collections are still accessible free of charge via the Web http://dlib.indiana.edu/collections/coll-image.htm, RLG offers an aggregated resource, with enhanced viewing (achieved through additional image processing). As of June 25, 2003 the service contains 197,188 works in 76 collections from 25 contributing institutions.

*Walden University Library News, IUB

Walden University's Summer Session 2003 has ended, and our students and faculty have scattered throughout the States and around the world - with high praise for the IU Libraries and the folks who work here.

We were a bit apprehensive this year because of the decision not to have our Walden summer library in Willkie. Being able to use E-172 as our Walden Library Concierge greatly relieved the apprehension, as it gave us a highly visible and easily accessible location in which to work with our students.

Many thanks for your excellent support, especially in light of the extra effort you put forth for Freshmen Orientation during the same time period.

From the Walden University Library staff.

    Dear IU Librarians and Staff:

    I am both proud and sad to announce that Yolanda Cooper has accepted a position at the University of Virginia, where she will become an Associate University Librarian. This is a well-deserved promotion for Yolanda, who has served with distinction as Assistant Dean for Human Resources at Indiana University.

    As the Associate University Librarian for Organization Development at the University of Virginia, she will have oversight of Management Information Services, Financial Services, the Office of Library Administration, and the Human Resources Office. As one of three associate university librarians, she will be integral to the academic mission of the University of Virginia Library as a member of the Library?s Administratve Team.

    When I arrived at Indiana University in 1996, Yolanda was serving as the assistant to the Dean. Since then, she completed both her bachelor?s and master?s degrees in 1998 and 2003 respectively, while working full time. In her role as Assistant Dean for Human Resources, she expanded the office to include staff development and training in organization development and technology, and she has issued procedures and advocated for funding to address ergonomic issues and diversity in all aspects. She has also been an invaluable support to the University?s campuses in the promotion and tenure process.

    Yolanda created a Libraries Diversity Committee and secured funding through the Office of Strategic Hiring and support to create an Outreach Librarian position to work closely with the advocacy offices on campus. She has actively sought to increase the number of professional positions and to maintain staff positions by working closely with supervisors to orchestrate major staff reassignments most recently for Auxiliary Library Facility Services and Internal Processing.

    Please join me in congratulating Yolanda on a signal achievement. Even as we prepare to miss her contributions at IU on so many levels, we can also expect to see her achievements at another public university in an even more important context for libraries.

    Yolanda will leave IU early November and assume her new position in December. More information will follow about interim assignments.

    *HISTORY OF THE BOOK Seminar Session--October 13

    The first of the History of the Book Seminar sessions for the 2003-04 year will be held this coming Monday, OCTOBER 13, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Lilly Library Lounge. The session will be led by by JONATHAN SHEEHAN, Assistant Professor in our History Department here at Indiana. His subject is THE ENLIGHTENMENT AND THE ORIENTAL ARCHIVES OF THE OLD TESTAMANT, and an Abstract of his talk follows beneath. As has been our custom, coffee, fruit juice, and cookies can be also enjoyed by all from 3:30 on.

    THE ENLIGHTENMENT AND THE ORIENTAL ARCHIVES OF THE OLD TESTAMENT JONATHAN SHEEHAN (Department of History, Indiana University, Bloomington) Lilly Library Lounge--October 13, 4 p.m.

    In early January 1761, a group of explorers set out from Copenhagen aboard the Danish war ship Greenland with their sights on the antiquities of the Red Sea, hoping to uncover the secrets of Arabia and bring them back to European scholars hungry for information about the Biblical world. None was hungrier than the German Orientalist and Bible translator Johann David Michaelis, who organized the so-called Niebuhr expedition to feed his appetite for the kind of concrete data absent from Biblical scholarship until the late eighteenth century. This was, of course, a peculiar idea. Arabia--and particularly Yemen, their principal destination--was not the stage for the great dramas of the Old and New Testaments. Its antiquities, dialects, flora, and fauna were untouched by the events described in the Christian Bible. And yet, as it turned out, this was precisely the attraction for scholars like Michaelis, who hoped to find in these Oriental archives particularly durable monuments of the ancient Near East. If the spiritual aura of the Holy Land had long corroded the data transmitted by its explorers--as unfamiliar customs were woven into the customary Biblical narrative--the stony wastelands of Yemen offered resources for alienating the reader from this familiar Jewish story, for making the Bible strange. Michaelis would put these resources to work in his prodigious Old Testament translation, a work that consistently employed Oriental antiquities to defamiliarize the German Bible. This project, I suggest, was one part of a larger effort in the later eighteenth century to recuperate the meaning of a Bible shorn from the comfortable cradle of theology. Using the Orient to estrange the Bible was, in the end, part of a wide enterprise to reconstitute the foundations of Biblical authority, an enterprise that would make the Bible an integral part of the "culture"--the spiritual heritage--of the West.

    *****

    JONATHAN SHEEHAN took his PhD from the University of California at Berkeley in 1999 and has been Assistant Professor of History at Indiana University, Bloomington since the fall of 2000. He held a fellowship at Princeton University's Center for the Study of Religion in the 2002-03 Academic year. He has published in Representations, The Journal of the History of Ideas, and the American Historical Review, and his THE ENLIGHTENMENT BIBLE: TRANSLATION, SCHOLARSHIP, CULTURE is forthcoming from Princeton University Press in 2004. He is presently at work on a second book, THE BIBLE AND THE HUMAN SCIENCES IN EARLY MODERN EUROPE.

    Helen Lightfoot Fried

    Helen Lightfoot Fried died at age 98 on October 8, 2003 in Corydon Indiana. For many friends and colleagues it is difficult to refer to her as other than "Miss Lightfoot" -- as she was known for the close to thirty years during which she served as head of the IUB Library's "Documents Department." She served as model and mentor for a great number of librarians including Gary Wiggins (whose first library job was as a student assistant in "Documents"), Ann Bristow (whose first professional position was as US documents librarian), Ruth Davison (who followed Ann in that position and served until her own retirement in 1998) - as well as many others who went on to careers across the country.

    Ms. Lightfoot grew up in Des Moines Iowa, received her BA from Drake University and a BS in Library Science from Case Western. She began work as an "apprentice" at the Iowa State Library when she graduated from high school and began her life-long devotion to and expertise in government publications. An article in a Bloomington newspaper in 1971 begins "'One of our goals has been to make students feel that no question is stupid' Miss Helen Lightfoot said, reflecting on the career she will end when she retires this year." That quote reveals a great deal about Miss Lightfoot. She was involved in every aspect of acquiring, recording and organizing our outstanding collections of documents but guidance to students and faculty about their use and interpretation was the clear and central purpose of all those activities. The reference to "our goals" too is suggestive. She treated everyone who worked with her as a partner, deserving of respect, engaged in a common, important enterprise.

    The respect and partnership extended to the student assistants, and Gary Wiggins has often said that it was his experience in the Documents Department that really made him aware of what it means to be a librarian. That led ultimately to the decision to choose librarianship as a career. Gary said, "Miss Lightfoot was a wonderful role model, whose influence on all around her was always positive. I can well remember Wilmer Baatz's words about Miss Lightfoot. He said that while other department heads might have been more insistent about their needs, it was often the case that Miss Lightfoot's well-stated, but less strident requests would come out a winner."

    After her retirement Miss Lightfoot married Edward P. Fried, who survives her, and together they enjoyed many years of devoted companionship. In 1989 Helen Lightfoot-Fried was awarded the William Evans Jenkins Librarian's Award.

    *History of the Book Seminar--October 27

    The second of our History of the Book Seminar sessions for the semester will be led, this coming Monday, October 27, by PAUL BENHAMOU, of Purdue University. Paul's subject is THE DIFFUSION OF FORBIDDEN BOOKS IN PRE-REVOLUTIONARY FRANCE: A POSTSCRIPT TO THE DARNTON DEBATE (Abstract, as usual, follows below). The session begins at our usual 4 p.m., in the Lilly Library Lounge, with coffee, fruit juice, and cookies from 3:30 on.

    THE DIFFUSION OF FORBIDDEN BOOKS IN PRE-REVOLUTIONARY FRANCE:
    A POSTSCRIPT TO THE DARNTON DEBATE
    PAUL BENHAMOU (Department of French, Purdue University)
    Lilly Library Lounge--October 27, 4 p.m.

    I have two major objectives in this paper: (1) To show how the increased demand for forbidden books, known as Livres Philosophiques in the underground booktrade, was met by the creation of unregulated public institutions called Cabinets de Lecture, devoted to the rental of books and newspapers in Paris and the provinces. And (2) To respond to Darnton's harshest critics who have accused him of having invented "another" Enlightenment, one not simply based on the works of the Great Philosophes (Voltaire, Diderot, Rousseau, d'Holbach) but which has readers reading ALL kinds of books--pornographic novels as well as the works of the Philosophes.

    * * *

    PAUL BENHAMOU received his Licence from the University of Dijon and an MA and PhD from the University of Iowa before proceeding on to a long and successful career in the French Department at Purdue University. He has published extensively on the pre-revolutionary French periodical press, on the reading trade in Lyons, and on the Anti-Philosophes (particularly Elie-Catherine Freron), and has recently presented a paper in a symposium on the Societe Typographique de Neuchatel, the Swiss publishing firm that has been the focus of much of Robert Darnton's work. In 2001, Benhamou was honored by the French Government with the prestigious Palmes Academiques Award for his service in promoting French culture and language in the United States.

    *New Release of "Letopis' Zhurnal'nykh Statei (1956-1975)" Online

    The Indiana University Digital Library Program has released a new online version of "Letopis' Zhurnal'nykh Statei (1956-1975)," searchable in Cyrillic, which is a comprehsensive periodical index. This project covers the portion of the index beginning with the period of the Khrushchev "Thaw" and continuing through the first half of the so-called Brezhnev "Period of Stagnation." The first verion of the online index has been accessible online since March 2003.

    This project addresses two difficulties in using the index. First, it was published weekly, without cumulations, making use of it extremely cumbersome. Second, it was printed on extremely acidic paper and many of the volumes are already in poor physical condition.

    Index functionality and the web site have been improved based upon extensive usability testing. The project team has made significant improvements to the virtual keyboard, the subject filtering, and the documentation, such as the help files.

    In addition to the index, the site also includes the proposal, papers and presentations about various aspects of the project.

    To search the index or learn more about the project, go to: http://www.dlib.indiana.edu/reference/letopis. The project was funded in part by the U.S. Department of Education, through the Title VI program Technological Innovation and Cooperation for Foreign Information Access (TICFIA).

    *The Charles W. Cushman Photograph Collection

    The Indiana University Digital Library Program has launched a groundbreaking digital collection of 14,500 color images of everyday life in the middle of the twentieth century, "The Charles W. Cushman Photograph Collection" (http://www.dlib.indiana.edu/collections/cushman/). The collection is housed in the University Archives and they are a project partner.

    Taken by amateur photographer Charles Weever Cushman between 1938 and 1969, the images document an amazing cross-section of American and international subjects, from inner-city storefronts and industrial landscapes to candid portraits.

    "The richly saturated Kodachrome slides add color to an era primarily documented in black and whitea world that we had long since resigned ourselves to viewing only in shades of gray," writes Eric Sandweiss, the Carmony Associate Professor of History, in an essay that is part of the collections Web site. "In Cushman's work," he observes, "the past becomes, for an instant, impossibly present."

    Deteriorating colors in some of the slides, however, led IU's image specialists to consult with experts at the University of Basel in Switzerland, who have researched fading patterns of film dyes. Technicians there recreated mathematically what the dyes on the slide might have looked like at the time of processing, and used this information to generate color-corrected versions of about 250 of Cushman's images in both film and digital formats.

    Viewers may search the collection or browse the images by year, location, subject, and genre, a task possible only because the photographer, an IU alumnus, meticulously recorded notes about the thousands of images he shot over more than three decades. Mr. Cushman's descriptive information formed the basis of a database, which was later enhanced by image catalogers to provide subject access to the collection.

    Charles Cushman, who graduated from Indiana University in 1917, bequeathed to the university some of his photographic equipment, his notebooks, and his entire collection of photographs. The slides were unknown until a university archivist discovered them in late 1999. They were found, neatly packed and labeled, still in the suitcases in which they were delivered in 1972.

    "While one takes pleasure in examining these handsome images singly," Sandweiss concludes in his essay, "the greatest reward comes from assembling them as a group and discovering in their totality a clearer picture of a place that we thought we knew: the United States, c. 1938-1969, a place close enough to touch, but forever just out of reach."

    The digitization and cataloging of the Charles W. Cushman Collection and the creation of the Web site were funded by Indiana University and by a National Leadership Grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) (http://www.imls.gov).

    *History of the Book Seminar Session--Monday, November 17

    The next session in the History of the Book Seminar will be led this coming MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, by JEFFREY WASSERSTROM of our History Department. His topic and title are: ON BUYING BOOKS IN A CHANGING CHINA (Abstract follows below). The session begins at the usual 4 p.m. in the Lilly Library Lounge with coffee, fruit juice, and cookies at 3:30 (I hope on time this time). Hope to see you all there.

    ON BUYING BOOKS IN A CHANGING CHINA
    JEFFREY WASSERSTROM
    (Department of History, Indiana University, Bloomington)
    Lilly Library Lounge--November 17, 4 p.m.

    Scholars working on and journalists reporting from authoritarian states often treat the kinds of books for sale and the sorts of publications banned in such places as a useful barometer of political life. What does it mean, then, that dramatic changes have taken place in China in the last two decades or so when it comes to the kinds of books you can buy, the range of foreign publications being translated, and the types of stores that sell books? This talk will explore questions of this nature, drawing on the experiences the presenter has had buying books in China on periodic trips to that country taken between 1986 and 2002. Book-buying will be used as a starting point for consideration, in passing, of a wide variety of obviously and perhaps not so obviously related topics, from the nature of the Chinese "public sphere" to the current global fascination with George Orwell, and from the significance of increasing Chinese use of the internet to the curious connections that bookstores have with libraries and coffee shops in China and elsewhere. The talk will be accompanied by a good bit of "show and tell" of one sort or another.

    *************************************************************

    JEFFREY WASSERSTROM is Professor of History and Director of the East Asian Studies Center here at IU. He is author of STUDENT PROTESTS IN TWENTIETH-CENTURY CHINA: THE VIEW FROM SHANGHAI (Stanford, 1991) and editor or co-editor of four different volumes of essays, the most recent of which is TWENTIETH-CENTURY CHINA: NEW APPROACHES (Routledge, 2003). In addition to publishing in purely academic venues, he writes for assorted general interest magazines and is a frequent contributor to TLS.

    Ann Bristow, distinguished librarian and Head of the Reference Department, has announced her retirement from the IU Libraries, effective February 1, 2004.

    It has been my pleasure to work with Ann during the last few years and I hold her in high regard. I feel a personal loss in her leaving the Libraries and know that many of you share this feeling.

    Since my knowledge of Ann?s many contributions to the libraries, campus, and university is somewhat limited, I asked for input from colleagues in preparing a few words to honor Ann. The following text was prepared by Julie Bobay, Nancy Cridland, Jian Liu, Perry Willett, and Celestina Wroth. A special thanks is extended to each one who helped write this tribute. And most of all, we offer a heartfelt thank you to Ann.

    Ann began her career at IU as Assistant Documents Librarian from 1965-1967 after earning an AB in English and History and an AM in English from the University of Michigan. After living abroad for several years and finishing an AMLS at the University of Michigan, she came back to IU in 1974, spending a few months in the Serials Department before beginning her career in the Reference Department. From 1977-79, she served as Personnel Librarian, and in 1979 became Head of the Reference Department, where, with the exception of occasional interludes as Acting Associate Dean for Public Services, she has spent the rest of her career. In 1998 she was honored with the William Evans Jenkins Award, recognizing her outstanding contributions to the libraries and to the profession. As role model, mentor, colleague, friend, she influenced all of us toward excellence, both by her encouragement and by her example.

    Ann realized early on the enormous potential that electronic resources and services could offer to the humanities and social science students and scholars served by the Main Library. In 1985, Ann began what would become a nationally-renowned e-mail reference service, delivered initially through the Campus-wide Information Service known as the AIE and subsequently through gopher, web and chat technologies. The use of this important service has consistently ranked among the highest in the nation. Ann also played instrumental roles in many other electronic initiatives, including the development of one of the first CD-ROM LANs in the country and the Libraries Electronic Text Resource Services (LETRS).

    Never misled by overblown technological hype, she weighed new products critically, keeping an eye on the cost/benefit factor, and made careful judgments in recommending electronic and/or print resources to users. Her skill in offering user-friendly instruction is widely appreciated, and her tactful and genuinely sympathetic approach has won over many a technology-resistant patron.

    At her retirement, Ann will leave a reference department that is unsurpassed in its dedication and ability to helping students, faculty and colleagues explore new ideas. In an increasingly impersonal and technical world, Ann'?s words and actions at the reference desk and through personal contacts have convinced generations of students, faculty and librarians that there is a special place in this large university where they can find librarians who care about scholarly research and who will dedicate their efforts toward supporting such studies. Ann?s dedication to excellent reference services and collections and her many innovative solutions to help scholars and students have raised the image not just of the department but the library as a whole. Because of her, the library is seen by many as the trusted source for information.

    Articulate and eloquent, Ann is frequently sought out as speaker and writer not only within the IU community but at library conferences and meetings. Colleagues at IU, while very appreciative of her many qualities and contributions, are particularly indebted to Ann for her role as a member of the faculty; to quote from a nomination letter for the William Evans Jenkins Award, she's "a living example of why librarians ought to continue to have faculty status." Dedicated to a vision of librarians as partners with faculty in advancing the academic missions of the university, Ann?s leadership roles in faculty governance within the libraries, the university, and organizations like the American Association of University Professors have defined the model for librarians who will succeed her.
