He knows the collections and the University and is dedicated to extending expert assistance to students and faculty from the Reference Desk and through every opportunity the constantly evolving digital scene provides -- most recently 'chat reference.' We are fortunate Frank has agreed to serve as Interim Head of the Reference Department.

"Demonstrating HOTBED: A Model for the Future of User Centered Multimedia Teaching and Learning"

Stephen Barrett

Project Manager and Technical Officer, HOTBED Project

Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama

Glasgow, Scotland

Tuesday, February 17 1:00-2:00 PM

Main Library E174 (Media Showing Room)

Sponsored by the Indiana University Digital Library Program and the Variations2 Digital Music Library Project

Abstract:

Stephen's presentation consists of a detailed look at the HOTBED system and a talk on the future developments to be made to the system to make it a rich learning environment for disciplines across Higher Education.

HOTBED stands for Handing On Tradition By Electronic Dissemination, and is a research project funded by the UK's Joint Information System's Committee (http://www.jisc.ac.uk). The initial focus of the project was centered on the building of a system that is user-centered and provides Scottish traditional musicians at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (http://www.rsamd.ac.uk ) the facility to learn music directly using this system. The system has been built and tested and Stephen will be discussing the research outputs derived from user testing and curriculum embedding.

After a series of presentations in the UK it became clear that the HOTBED model would be of great benefit to the wider education community - in terms of its community/user centred structure and its developing multimedia tools - and the next phase of HOTBED's lifecycle will see the system broadened out to be made available to practices interested in such a paradigm.

HISTORY OF THE BOOK SEMINAR SESSION

MARCH 1, 2004

Please join us in the Lilly Library Lounge on Monday, March 1, from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., when Professor Ann Blair will lead the second of this semester's History of the Book Seminar sessions. As usual, refreshments will be available beginning at 3:30.

"Coping with Information Overload in Early Modern Europe"

Professor Ann Blair, Harvard University

Monday, March 1: 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

Lilly Library Lounge

"I will present material from my project in progress on the methods early modern European scholars devised for coping with an overabundance of books. My project includes a survey of the major reference genres in use in early modern Europe, variously designed as shortcuts to reading all those books one couldn't read oneself, or as guides to reading and books. In this talk I will focus on the genre of bibliography and especially the work of Conrad Gesner (1516-65). I will discuss parallels between Gesner's bibliographical and his natural historical writings, with a special focus on his methods of working, from note-taking to alphabetization."

Ann Blair teaches history at Harvard, including courses on early modern France, the history of the book, and science and religion, among other topics. Her publications include The Theater of Nature: Jean Bodin and Renaissance Science (1997) and articles on various aspects of early modern natural philosophy (university teaching, the Problemata Aristotelis, "pious philosophy," and the interaction of Latin and the vernacular) and, from her current project: "Annotating and indexing natural philosophy," in Books and the Sciences in History, ed. Frasca-Spada and Jardine (2000) and "Coping with Information Overload in Early Modern Europe," in the Journal of the History of Ideas (2003).

IUB Libraries Boost Access to Full-Text Articles

Through Hyperlinking Software

IU-Link, a new service launched by the IUB Libraries that promises greater convenience for researchers at all levels, streamlines information retrieval by linking online article citations to full text.

Citations in 113 of the IUB Libraries? largest and most popular databases now link seamlessly to full-text articles in more than 20,000 online journals. In instances when the full-text is not available, researchers can link directly to IUCAT, the online catalog, to see if the university owns the journal or book, or can request delivery of the item through interlibrary loan.

IU-Link eliminates the cumbersome online research process in which users must exit a citation or index database, log in to IUCAT, and conduct individual searches to determine if IU owns the book or journal.

IU-Link was initially implemented at IUPUI in 2002. The service will be available to all IU campuses by the fall.

For further details, go to: http://www.indiana.edu/~libsfx/sfxfaq.html

MEDIA SERVICES FILM SCREENING: Trembling Before G-D (2003)

Media Services will screen the award-winning documentary, Trembling Before G-D on Thursday, April 22, 2004. The film shatters assumptions about faith, sexuality, and religious fundamentalism as intimately told by Hasidic and Orthodox Jews who are gay or lesbian and their dilemma to reconcile their passionate love of Judaism and the Divine with the drastic Biblical prohibitions that forbid homosexuality. The film was a winner of the GLAAD Media Award for outstanding documentary, a winner of the TEDDY Award and an Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival.

Noa Wahrman, Bibliographer for Jewish Studies, will lead a discussion immediately following the screening about issues raised in the film.

Free and Open to the Public

Date: Thursday, April 22, 2004

Time: 7:30pm

Location: Main Library, E174

DISCUSSION OF ONLINE DELIVERY OF MUSIC SCORES

You are invited to an informal discussion about the feasibility of library subscriptions to online delivery of music scores, in much the same way that the University Libraries now provide access to full-text journal articles. Our guests will be (American trumpeter) Robert Thompson, Managing Director of Universal Edition, AG (Vienna), and (English pianist) Jonathan Irons, CEO of SheetmusicNow.com (Copenhagen). This discussion will be held on Wednesday, May 12, from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. in the Cook Music Library, M267.

More information:

About ten years ago, Bob Thompson, joined Universal Edition, the Viennese music publishing house that is home to composers such Gustav Mahler, Kurt Weill, B?la Bart?k, Arvo P?rt, and Pierre Boulez. Thompson holds a Doctoral degree in Music from the Eastman School of Music, a Masters Degree in Music Theory from the University of South Florida, and two Master's Degrees from Eastman in both Jazz Studies and Music Performance. Prior to joining Universal Edition, he served as Professor of Music on the faculties of Hope College, The University of Kentucky, and DePauw University in Vienna. The recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts Grants, Thompson was a staff writer for Jazz Player Magazine, and has written or edited several publications, including Alban Berg: the Secret Vocal Part, Kenny Wheeler: Collected Works, and Tudo e Som: The Music of Hermeto Pascoal. He most recently produced the Grammy-nominated CD Allegresse by jazz composer Maria Schneider for ENJA Records and served as music consultant to the recent Johnny Depp-Cate Blanchett film, The Man Who Cried. He is a Board Member of the Music Publisher's Association and chairs the Kuenstlerischer Beirat (Artistic Board) of Universal Edition A.G. in Vienna.

Sheet Music Now A/S was founded in 1998 as Amazing Music World A/S by cellist Inge Mulvad Eje and the oboist and composer Niels Eje. Jonathan Irons became CEO in 2002 following a career in classical music publishing and playing in various jazz festivals. In 2003 the company concluded an agreement with the Danish National Library Authority and seven libraries in Denmark (Gentofte, Copenhagen, Odense, Herning, Aarhus and the State Library) for the purchase and distribution of digital sheet music. The libraries pay a subscription fee, users may download and print the music for free, and composers and publishers receive royalties. The SheetMusicNow.com catalog contains about 30,000 published classical and jazz editions from Schott Musik International, Josef Weinberger Ltd., Oxford University Press, Pizzicato Verlag Helvetia, Muzyka and many other publishers, as well as jazz arrangements from the new syllabus of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in London. In addition to the published editions, SheetMusicNow.com also presents the works of world famous artists such as Sir James Galway, Chick Corea, Steven Isserlis, Joe Lovano and Stephen Hough.

To Commemorate

D-DAY?s 60th Anniversary,

The IUB Libraries Media Literacy

Film Series will present the

Academy Award winning film SAVING PRIVATE RYAN

(1998, 170min.)

Tuesday, June 1, 2004

6:00-9:00pm

IUB Main Library, Room E174

Free and Open to the Public

Eight men are assigned to find and rescue Pvt. Ryan, possibly the last survivor out of four brothers who have all lost their lives in the war. Film critic James Berardinelli says ?Saving Private Ryan opens with a 30-minute cinematic tour de force that is without a doubt one of the finest half-hours ever committed to film. This sequence, a soldier's-eye view of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, is brilliant not only in terms of technique but in the depth of viewer reaction it generates. It is certainly the most violent, gory, visceral depiction of war that I have ever witnessed on screen.? The film is Rated R for its extensive graphic images of war.

Chad H. Parker, a doctoral candidate in the Department of History with a specific focus on American foreign relations since WWII, will lead a discussion prior to and immediately following the screening to address issues raised in the film. He will teach a course this summer called The Creation of the American Oil Empire.

Light Refreshments will be provided

FULL STEAM AHEAD FOR INDIANA UNIVERSITY SLIS

Blaise Cronin, Rudy Professor of Information Science at Indiana University (IU), has been reappointed dean of IU?s School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) by Chancellor Kenneth R. R. Gros Louis. Cronin?s return, after a year?s sabbatical, brings to an end merger speculation and signals stability and forward momentum. Debora Shaw has been appointed Executive Associate Dean of SLIS, while Danny Callison continues as Executive Associate Dean on the Indianapolis campus. Javed Mostafa has been appointed Associate Dean for Research at Bloomington.

All the leading indicators for the school are positive. SLIS currently has a total of 576 master?s students on its Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses. Thirty-three doctoral students are studying at Bloomington. Enrollments for 2003-04 were the highest in the school?s history. Student recruitment and placement are robust. Five new faculty members will join the ranks in fall 2004, bringing to 23 the combined number of full-time faculty.

At Bloomington, the MLS (Master of Library Science), MIS (Master of Information Science) and Ph.D. (Information Science) are offered along with the post-master?s specialization. In addition, Bloomington students can choose from more than a dozen dual, joint, and specialization programs. The MLS is also offered at Indianapolis, which is the base for all the school?s distance education options. SLIS graduates occupy leadership positions throughout the nation and worldwide, while close to 40% of all library administrative posts in the state of Indiana are held by IU graduates.

Research activity at Bloomington is higher than ever. Several faculty are engaged on NSF-funded projects, often working in collaboration with colleagues from other units such as Informatics, Education, and Computer Science. Katy B?rner has been awarded a 5-year NSF career grant for her pioneering efforts in information visualization. Yvonne Rogers has been funded by Mitsubishi Electronic Research Laboratories to investigate collaborative problem solving using innovative touch-sensitive, tabletop technologies.

In the last year, SLIS faculty have lectured at universities throughout the world, including, Cambridge, Duke, MIT and Oxford. Blaise Cronin has been reappointed Editor of the Annual Review of Information Science and Technology, Danny Callison continues as Editor of School Library Media Research, Javed Mostafa as Associate Editor of ACM Transactions on Information Systems, and Susan Herring has recently been named Editor of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication.

WALDEN UNIVERSITY SUMMER SESSION 2004

The Walden Summer Session will begin on July 11 and officially end on July 30. About 500 doctoral students and a smaller number of Master's students will attend the session. Approximately half the students will leave the weekend of July 24.

As in 2003, there will be no Walden library in the student dormitory, but we and our student assistants will again staff the "Walden Library Concierge" office in E-172 during the hours the East Tower is open.

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 (SDDS) will permit them to request photocopies from participating Bloomington campus libraries and from libraries on the IU regional campuses, but not from any other institution. They will be able to use IUCAT's Request Delivery feature for books.

Walden students 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.

Here is a breakdown of Walden students by schools (academic programs):

Education 183
Management 161
Psychology 103
Public Administration 32
Human Services 25
Health Services 22
Public Health 20

Please feel free to contact us if you have questions, and I would like to invite you to visit our Summer Session site for more information: http://www.lib.waldenu.edu/summer/

IUB Librarian Publishes Book

Congratulations to Andrea Morrison for co-authoring (with Barbara Mann of the University of Southern Maine, Portland) International Government Information and Country Information: A Subject Guide.

A description from the publisher:

"This is the only authoritative guide that offers a subject approach to the plentiful resources provided by international government organizations, national governments, and other foreign information sources. Although many of the resources described in this book are freely available on the Internet, finding or using them can be difficult. This guide helps users locate the most substantive resources for their needs. In addition to an overview section, 21 chapters cover rich resources of topical, statistical, and analytical information on: BL Agriculture and food BL Crime BL Health BL Human rights BL Laws and treaties BL Transportation BL Women and children BL And more Each chapter provides descriptions of Web sites, books, reports, and other important materials, and concludes with research strategies and tips on the most efficient ways to search for certain types of information."

"In addition to international and foreign government sources, this book covers resources from foreign organizations, foreign universities, and commercial publishers. Appendixes identify the acronyms and initialisms that are often used in place of international government organizations' full names; the organizations' Web site addresses are also listed. Students from high school to graduate level, researchers, and librarians will find this an important reference work."

National Grant Speaks to Digital Library Leadership

Indiana University?s School of Library and Information Science and the IU Digital Library Program received a $939,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to educate librarians for work in digital library programs.

IU will partner with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to create the first research-based, comprehensive master?s-level program for training information specialists in digital library development. Both institutions will offer internships for students to gain experience with digital library projects.

The granting agency also selected Indiana University to host a national conference planned by representatives from schools of library and information science that are developing digital management programs, with a goal of developing recommendations for core competencies in digital information management.

?Being selected to host a national conference speaks to our standing as one of the nation?s leading digital library programs,? says Suzanne Thorin, Ruth Lilly University Dean of University Libraries and Associate Vice President for Digital Library Development. ?We were already a leader, but this opportunity pushes us to the forefront. I am very proud of the program we have developed at IU.?

Javed Mostafa, associate dean at the School of Library and Information Science, and Kristine Brancolini, head of IU?s Digital Library Program, are co-directors of the grant.

Garry Harrison Completes IICRC Certification

Please join me in congratulating Garry Harrison on his successful completion of certifications as a Water Damage Restoration and Applied Structural Drying Technician under the auspices of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Structural drying and restoration is concerned with the management of water damage throughout an entire building, not just the collections contained therein, and is an essential component in returning disaster sites to safety and preventing future collections damage.

Garry joined the Preservation Department as a Conservation Technician in 1998, and assumed his current post as General Collections Conservator for the Craig Preservation Lab in 2001. In that time his expertise in disaster response has prevented the loss of literally thousands of volumes from our collections.

Brian Winterman Accepts Life Sciences/Chemistry Library Position

I am pleased to announce that Brian Winterman has accepted the position of Assistant Chemistry/Life Sciences Librarian effective September 13.

Brian will work closely with the Head of the Life Sciences Library and the Chemistry Library to provide reference service and library instruction and to serve as collection manager of the nursing fund and liaison to the nursing faculty. The primary clientele of the Life Sciences Library and the Chemistry Library are located in Jordan Hall, Myers Hall, and the Chemistry Building. When construction is completed in April of 2006 this will also include the Multidisciplinary Science Building.

Starting in September 2001, Brian was the Campus Library Coordinator in Indiana University Bloomington's Life Sciences Library where he supervised circulation, reserves, and stacks maintenance. He was the primary customer service provider in these areas, and he made a great impression on our users with his reference abilities and problem solving skills. Before holding this position, Brian was the Head of Circulation and Systems in the Alexandrian Public Library in Mount Vernon, Indiana, as well as the Evening Supervisor of the Rice Library at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville.

Brian holds undergraduate degrees from Indiana University in Anthropology and Classical Studies, and studied Secondary Education at the University of Southern Indiana for certification to teach Latin. His MLS degree was completed in December 2003.

In his free time, Brian writes and records songs. He released a CD in 2004, and he performs regularly in and around Bloomington with his band.

Thanks to One and All Involved in the Journalism Library Remodeling Project!

A hearty thanks to all who participated in the success of the Journalism Library Remodeling Project which was made possible through the collaborative efforts of the IU School of Journalism, the IU Libraries and UITS. The newly remodeled library is based on the conceptual Information Commons model, adapted to the smaller setting provided in Ernie Pyle Hall, room 102. The newly remodeled library provides expanded computer resource areas and comfortable reading and study space. I wish to thank Harriette Hemmasi for her administrative oversight of the project.

The collections formerly held by the Journalism Library were re-constituted, leaving a core journalism monograph collection of new or highly-circulating materials in Ernie Pyle Hall, high-use telecommunications and communication & culture monographs were transferred to the Main Library-Research Collections, and old materials were transferred to the ALF. I wish to thank Cecile Jagodzinski, Julie Bobay, Mechael Charbonneau, James Castrataro, Ria Collee, Pat Steele, Dustin Lewen, Frank Quinn, and Dave Frasier for their assistance in the collection selections and transfer process.

I wish to thank LIT and UITS, and especially Ron Hafft, for computer technology assistance. I wish to thank Jim Champion and Linda Butler for all their assistance with the move and set-up of the library. Thanks to the many who were involved in this project!

Dean Thorin Honored by State Library

Suzanne Thorin last week received the Indiana State Library's Synergy Award. State Librarian Barbara Maxwell recognized Thorin for her outstanding efforts to further the partnership and collaboration between Indiana University and the Indiana State Library.

"Dean Thorin's guidance has been pivotal as I work to establish the State Library as a central force for libraries in the state," Maxwell says. "Suzanne's efforts serve as an example of what synergy and collaboration are all about. I can't think of a better person to receive the award."

Key to the collaboration is building statewide digital library content by leveraging the infrastructure in place at IU, which Thorin has helped develop into one of the nation's leading digital library programs.

"The Indiana University Libraries have exceptional resources," says Thorin. "Our collections are first-rate, and our librarians and staff offer tremendous intellectual capital. Our goal--always--is to leverage these assets for the benefit of the citizens of the state. I'm pleased that our intensified partnership with the Indiana State Library will do just that."

IU's Digital Library Program and the Indiana State Library, partnering with the Indiana Historical Society and the Indiana State Museum, were awarded federal funds in September to create an online sheet music collection. The project, funded by a $343,437 national leadership grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, will demonstrate how museums and libraries can work to create shared digital resources.
