CALYPSO @ IU: NMBCC Library displays Calypso Music in Postwar America Exhibit

Learn more about calypso music by visiting an exhibit titled “Calypso Music in Postwar America,” which will be on display at the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library beginning January 2007 through April 2007, and attend educational, cultural programs along with the exhibit showing.

Calypso music, which comes from the island of Trinidad, can be traced back to when the first African slaves arrived on the sugar plantations of the island. Similarly to Africans enslaved in America, the Africans on the sugar plantations of the island were not permitted to talk to each other so they would sing songs as a means of communicating with each other, mocking the slave owners, and often sending messages covertly to keep the slave masters out of the loop. Over the years, calypso music evolved into a unique form of musical storytelling that blended with the tradition of carnival, it also became a popular art form that was exported to America and the world in the 1950s and 1960s, the post-WWII years. During Spring Semester 2007 at IU, the history of calypso will be highlighted with the Calypso Music in Postwar America Exhibit along with lectures, films, and performance presentations.

The public is invited to an Opening Reception for the Calypso Music in Postwar America Exhibit on January 19, 2007, 7pm until 9pm at the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center, Grand Hall. Tour the exhibit while enjoying live calypso music and Caribbean food.

The Calypso Music in Postwar America Exhibit and programming is brought to you by the following co-sponsors: NMBCC Library, Lilly Library, Multi-cultural Initiatives, African American and African Diaspora Studies, Latin American & Caribbean Studies, Folklore & Ethnomusicology, and the Black Film Center Archives. A list of events along with a pathfinder to calypso related IU Libraries collections can be found on the NMBCC Library website: http://www.libraries.iub.edu/index.php?pageId=4966.

Library News & Events

The following Administrative Changes were effective January 1, 2007

Lynn Hufford, Head, E. Lingle Craig Preservation Laboratory, now reports to Cecile Jagodzinski, the Director of Collection Development.

The Bindery Preparations Unit reporting line has been moved from the Technical Services Department to Preservations. Peggy Houston will report to Lynn Hufford and continue to be responsible for the day-to-day binding operations .The office area will remain in the same location within the Herman B Wells Library.

Following Lynn's appointment as Head of Preservation much thought was given to where preservation activities best fit organizationally within the IU Libraries. Other CIC libraries were surveyed and it was discovered that preservation activities reported through technical services or collection development and there was no one right place. In looking toward the future and our goals for both preservations and collection development including mass deacidification, digitization, and print preservation planning, it made sense to change the reporting structure.

Mechael Charbonneau served as the Acting Head of Preservation from September 2005 until Lynn's appointment. Preservation continued to report through Technical services until these changes were made. I want to recognize and thank Mechael for accepting the additional responsibilities of supervising the Preservation Department, for learning the operation, and for creating an environment in which the department was able to move forward during a time of transition. The staffs in both Preservation and Bindery Preparation deserve recognition for their continued successful efforts on behalf of the Libraries to preserve the collections and move us forward during a time of change.

Book Publication: "Understanding Knowledge as a Commons:From Theory to Practice" by MIT Press

I am pleased to announce the recent publication of our book Understanding Knowledge as a Commons:From Theory to Practice by MIT Press. This edited volume by Charlotte Hess and Elinor Ostrom examines knowledge in digital form which offers unprecedented access to information through the Internet but at the same time is subject to ever-greater restrictions through intellectual property legislation, licensing, overpricing, and lack of preservation. Looking at knowledge as a commons--as a shared resource--allows us to understand both its limitless possibilities and what threatens it. In Understanding Knowledge as a Commons, experts from a range of disciplines discuss the knowledge commons in the digital era--how to conceptualize it, protect it, and build it.

Contributors consider the concept of the commons historically and offer an analytical framework for understanding knowledge as a shared social-ecological system. They look at ways to guard against enclosure of the knowledge commons, considering, among other topics, the role of research libraries, the advantages of making scholarly material available outside the academy, and the problem of disappearing Web pages. They discuss the role of intellectual property in a new knowledge commons. the open access movement (including possible funding models for scholarly publications), the development of associational commons, application of a free/open source framework to scientific knowledge, and the effect on scholarly communication of collaborative communities within academia, and offer a case study of EconPort, an open access, open source digital library for students and researchers in microeconomics. The essays clarify critical issues that arise within these new types of commons--and offer guideposts for future theory and practice.

Contributors are David Bollier, James Boyle, James C. Cox, Subha Ghosh, Charlotte Hess, Nancy Kranich, Peter Levine, Wendy Pradt Lougess, Elinor Ostrom, Charles Schweik, Peter Suber, J. Todd Swarthout, and Donald Waters.

The Indiana University Board of Trustees minutes website is the result of a cooperative project between the Indiana University Digital Library Program, Office of University Archives and Records Management and the Board of Trustees office to provide access to a growing number of meeting minutes on the web. The minutes are encoded in XML using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines (version P4). The TEI Guidelines allow for encoding of the document structure, and specific document features such as resolutions, policies, tables, and dates. Using the open source Extensible Text Framework (XTF) developed by the California Digital Library, this site allows full-text searching as well as searching within specific sections of the minutes such as policies and resolutions.

The Indiana University Archives houses the official paper copies of the minutes from 1835 to the present, except 1859-1883 which were destroyed in a campus fire in 1883. While the current website includes only the past 25 years of minutes, the site will be updated periodically as encoding progresses, with a goal to eventually encode all available minutes documenting the majority of the university’s history. This digitization project allows increased and more efficient access to a large body of historical records that will likely be valuable to both researchers and administrators of Indiana University.

The official URL of this website is: http://www.dlib.indiana.edu/collections/iubot/

Feel free to visit the site and contact the Indiana University Archives with comments or questions about the project:

The IU Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library and Union Board present a film screening…

Calypso Dreams. This feature-length documentary film chronicles the fascinating spirit and traditions of Calypso music in the island country of Trinidad and Tobago, dating back to its complex Afro-Caribbean roots in the 18th and 19th centuries. With narrative commentary by the popular Caribbean musician David Rudder, the film captures riveting, contemporary performances by a host of legendary Calypso performers with colorful "sobriquets," including the Mighty Sparrow, Calypso Rose, Lord Superior, Black Stalin, Mighty Bomber, Singing Sandra and Mighty Terror, and pays homage to recently deceased Calypsonians, including Lord Kitchener, Lord Pretender and Lord Blakie. The film also includes a rare and exclusive interview with Harry Belafonte on the issue of his early involvement with Calypso and his complex relationship with Lord Melody in the 1950s and early '60s.

Indiana University Graduate Council records, 1900-2005, Collection C278: In 1894, Indiana University instituted a standing Committee on Advanced Degrees charged with directing the growing number of students undertaking graduate studies. Formal organization of the Graduate School was authorized by the faculty in 1904, with the continued governance of the Committee until the office of the dean within the IU Graduate School was created in 1908. At that time, the committee emerged as the Administrative Committee and in 1909 became the Graduate Council. As the school's faculty took over the duties of the council in the 1930s, the council was deemed unnecessary and disbanded. However, in the 1950s the Graduate School underwent a reorganization and the Graduate Council was reestablished. The council is still active, meeting monthly during the academic year.

ART OF LEADERSHIP EXHIBITION

“The Art of Leadership: An Exhibition from the Senatorial Papers of Birch Bayh” is now on display in the main gallery of the Lilly Library. Birch Bayh accomplished an extraordinary amount during his three-term career as U.S. Senator from Indiana (1963-1980). The outlines of that career are highlighted in this exhibition, with an attempt to provide insights into the nature of his unique legislative leadership. Included is documentation of his achievements in amending the Constitution to ensure orderly presidential succession (25th Amendment) and to lower the voting age to 18 (26th Amendment), and in federal disaster relief, the struggle of African-Americans for social and economic justice, elimination of discrimination against women, judicial ethics, juvenile delinquency and reform of the juvenile justice system, drug abuse and regulation, the rights of citizens vis-à-vis the intelligence requirements for national security, oversight of the oil industry, development of alternative fuels, and patent law and technology transfer. Also included are materials documenting his Indiana legislative career (1955-1961) and his continuous and ongoing efforts to bring about direct popular election of the President. The exhibition runs from January 29 through May 5, 2007. The Lilly Library is open from 9 to 6 Monday through Friday and from 9 to 1 on Saturday.

ATTITUDE MATTERS AWARD

The Attitude Matters Award, established by the Dean of Libraries, recognizes the importance of a good attitude in the success of the Libraries. Good attitude leads to positive energy for change, for doing the daily work, for establishing good working relationships in and out of the Libraries, and in making the workplace more productive and pleasant. The Dean would like to reward good attitudes and discourage behavior that separates us and impedes our work together.

This award can be given to an individual only. Nominations are open and can be made by any library employee, including potential nominees.

The nomination form is available at http://www.libraries.iub.edu/intranet/materials.php?mt=paper&Id=1529.

Send nomination forms to Shawny Taysom, Wells Library 234 or staysom@indiana.edu, by Friday, March 30, 2007.

The award will be presented at the annual Retirement and Recognition Reception on Thursday, April 19.

Submitted by: Shawny Taysom, Assistant to the Ruth Lilly Interim Dean of University Libraries, IUB.


ART OF LEADERSHIP EXHIBITION

“The Art of Leadership: An Exhibition from the Senatorial Papers of Birch Bayh” is now on display in the main gallery of the Lilly Library. Birch Bayh accomplished an extraordinary amount during his three-term career as U.S. Senator from Indiana (1963-1980). The outlines of that career are highlighted in this exhibition, with an attempt to provide insights into the nature of his unique legislative leadership. Included is documentation of his achievements in amending the Constitution to ensure orderly presidential succession (25th Amendment) and to lower the voting age to 18 (26th Amendment), and in federal disaster relief, the struggle of African-Americans for social and economic justice, elimination of discrimination against women, judicial ethics, juvenile delinquency and reform of the juvenile justice system, drug abuse and regulation, the rights of citizens vis-à-vis the intelligence requirements for national security, oversight of the oil industry, development of alternative fuels, and patent law and technology transfer. Also included are materials documenting his Indiana legislative career (1955-1961) and his continuous and ongoing efforts to bring about direct popular election of the President. The exhibition runs from January 29 through May 5, 2007. The Lilly Library is open from 9 to 6 Monday through Friday and from 9 to 1 on Saturday.

Last summer Julie Bobay was named Interim Director for Scholarly Communication Initiatives. At the time I felt that it might be prudent to make this an interim appointment waiting the naming of a new dean. Since her interim appointment Julie has made great progress in a number of areas, expanding the original scope and addressing the range of issues we had hoped she would tackle.

It has become clear to me that the position of Director for Scholarly Communication Initiatives is critical to the future relevance and viability of the Libraries in important ways. For that reason I have decided to make Julie’s appointment permanent from the beginning of this month. This change in status will strengthen her role in establishing new partnerships and expanding existing ones. We are fortunate to have Julie taking on these initiatives. She is uniquely positioned on the campus with good contacts and credibility. She also has the knowledge of the issues and the drive to make a difference in our future. I thank her for the work already accomplished and look forward to the changes to come.

BROWN BAG PRESENTATION

The Bloomington Library Faculty Continuing Education Committee invites you to attend a brown bag presentation by Moira Smith, Librarian for Anthropology, Folklore, Sociology, & Social Work, on Wednesday, March 14, 12:00-1:30 in Wells Library, E174.

The event is co-sponsored by InULA.

"Practical Jokes, Unlaughter, and the Mohammed Cartoon Controversy."

In 2006, the world was gripped by riots and demonstrations over some cartoons that depicted the prophet Mohammed. Buildings were torched and some people died in the uproar. If ever one needed a reminder that humor is not a trivial matter, this was it. In my research into practical jokes I have developed a theory of the humor audience that throws light on the cartoon controversy. Here I will present this theory, including the power of both laughter and its opposite--unlaughter. (Moira Smith)

Refreshments will be provided.

IUB Technical Services Monthly Reports and Highlights Posted

Recent IUB Technical Services monthly reports are posted on the intranet at:

November 2006: http://www.libraries.iub.edu/intranet/materials.php?mt=newsletter&Id=320

December 2006: http://www.libraries.iub.edu/intranet/materials.php?mt=newsletter&Id=321

Departmental Highlights:

Unicorn GL3.1 Upgrade: Testing, preparing training documentation, delivering training sessions, and implementing the Java Client consumed departmental managers and staff time during the last two months of 2006. All technical services staff attended multiple training sessions that were also offered remotely to other campuses. Numerous cataloging and acquisitions automated workflow programs were rewritten. Once the upgraded Sirsi version and the new client were available in late December, unexpected changes in Unicorn modules and wizards were identified, fixed, or new procedures created. Supervisors and staff worked to overcome more intensive Unicorn processes, increased use of the mouse, and queues that grew during upgrade downtime.

Library News & Events

As a founding member of CLOCKSS, the IUB Libraries share the pride of winning the first Outstanding Collaboration Citation awarded by the Association of Library Collections and Technical Services.

CLOCKSS is a not-for-profit partnership of libraries and publishers working together to ensure the long-term preservation of online scholarly journals.

The initiative aims to provide a long-term archiving solution that will serve the libraries and publishers in the event of a long-term business interruption or in making orphaned works readily available to the scholarly community. What would happen, for example, if a publisher goes out of business? What would happen to the online content we as a library have paid for, and to which the publisher promised perpetual access?

Dean Patricia Steele represents Indiana University as a board member, and IU is one of only seven libraries in this leadership role. Together with publishers, the group is seeking answers to two fundamental questions: From this moment on, who will have custody of societies’ electronic information? And who will control and govern societies’ electronic archival assets?

CLOCKSS stands for Controlled Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe.

ALCTS is a division of the American Library Association and celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

Online Service Showcases Campus Research

A new online service led by the IUB Libraries promises to increase the visibility of the university’s research by providing a permanent digital home for scholarly materials.

IUScholarWorks, launched this year, empowers IU researchers to post their research, such as peer-reviewed materials, conference and working papers, and research data on the Internet.

Because the service guarantees a permanent Internet address and provides worldwide accessibility via search engines like Google, materials are more easily discovered by other researchers.

"This service showcases the work of IU scholars and increases its impact," says Julie Bobay, director of scholarly communication initiatives for the IUB Libraries.

"Libraries have a longstanding commitment to preserving and increasing access to information," says Bobay. "And now in the digital age, faculty members who want to preserve their scholarly work and make it accessible to the world continue to rely on our support and leadership."

The overriding goal, Bobay says, is to create a repository for research materials generated at Indiana University and to give individual researchers easy-to-use tools to ensure that their scholarly output is both organized and always available.

The service provides a way to increase visibility of not only published materials, which can be posted if the author has the rights from the publisher to do so, but also unpublished materials known as "gray literature," which may include conference papers, working papers, and primary evidence.

IUScholarWorks is a service of the IUB Libraries and the Digital Library Program.

The Digital Library Program is a collaborative effort of the IU Libraries and the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology, through the Research Computing Division of University Information Technology Services, and the university research faculty with leadership from the School of Library and Information Science and the School of Informatics.

2007 William Evans Jenkins Librarian Award, IUB

Eileen Fry and Carolyn Walters have been named the winners of the 2007 William Evans Jenkins Librarian Award. Named for IU’s chief librarian from 1904-1932, the William Evans Jenkins Librarian Award recognizes the outstanding professional contributions of a present or former librarian and is awarded by the Bloomington Library Faculty Council. The award will be presented to the co-winners at a meeting of the Bloomington Library Faculty on May 1st, 2-4 p.m., Staff Lounge, Wells Library. They will also be recognized at the annual Recognition and Retirement Ceremony, April 19th, Reference Reading Room, Wells Library, 2:30-4 p.m.

Eileen Fry has served the IUB Libraries as the Fine Arts Slide Librarian since 1975. She has demonstrated significant contributions to the library profession which reflects achievement in librarianship at Indiana University and has also had significant influence on the operations of the Indiana University Libraries. Her commitment to DIDO (Digital Image Database Online) is an outstanding exemplar of her initiative. Indiana University’s Slide Library webpage is recognized as a model imitated by other institutions and information shared by Eileen is used nationally and internationally. She has a reputation as a pioneer slide librarian. She works tireless with faculty and students to teach them to access and use image technology. She teaches, publishes, and presents on a wide range of professional interests, and has mentored colleagues in the field. She is a sought after and inspiring lecturer in Fine Arts and SLIS classes, and has shared her expertise with interns, inspiring many generations of faculty and librarians. She has presented at conferences and on panels at national conferences 32 times, in addition to publishing a book and articles in her field. Over the years, she made important contributions to the vocabularies used for art, artist, and geographic names, including in her Concordance of Ancient Site Names, co-edited with Maryly Snow, which was a source of many important new entries.

Her service in the Visual Resources Association (VRA) and the Art Libraries Society/North America (ARLIS/NA) is notable. She is recognized and praised by her colleagues for implementing national standards for the Cataloging of Cultural Objects (CCO) and is considered one of the national authorities regarding the development of systems for the cataloging and subject analysis of visual images. She currently serves as Co-Chair and webmaster for the VRA Data Standards Committee, one example of her many leadership roles. Eileen is currently serving on the joint ARLIS/VRA Summer Educational Institute Task Force and has been instrumental in planning for the institute to be held on the Indiana University campus for 2007.

Among her many creative projects is her research project on the Image Archive of Professor Molly Faries, Indiana University and Rijksuniversitat Groningen, Netherlands, for which she constructed finding aids and linked all visual and written documents in the archive, housed at the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie in the Hague.

Her colleagues have called her work on DIDO "brilliant" and the Fine Arts Slide Library "top notch." Sarah Burns, Ruth N. Halls Professor, IUB Fine Arts, stated "because of her superb leadership and vision that IUB now has one of the most advanced visual resource collections of any university."

Carolyn Walters served the IUB Libraries in many positions since 1992, as Acting Head, Journalism Library 1992-1993; Librarian for Halls of Residence Libraries and Undergraduate Collections, 1987-95, 1996-97; Acting Director of Collection Development, 1996-1998; Acting Head, Undergraduate Library Services, 1997-1998; Coordinator, Main Library Research and Instruction Unit, 1997-1999; Head, Undergraduate Library Services, 1998-2003; Head, Information Commons/Undergraduate Services, 2003-2004; Director of Public Services, 2004-2005; Executive Associate Dean and Director of Public Services, 2005-2006; and Executive Associate Dean, 2006-present.

Carolyn has made a professional contribution which has had significant influence on the operations of the Indiana University Libraries and also a significant professional contribution which has earned the recognition of the Indiana University community. She has had a tremendous impact on the Bloomington Campus, advocating for undergraduate student library services, and mentoring many students and inspiring them and her colleagues with her passion for librarianship and dedication to service. She has shared her knowledge with service and presentations at the state and national levels. Carolyn’s vision is demonstrated by her development and advocacy for the Information Commons, which is a model for library services for administrators, librarians, and faculty from around the world. Especially notable is her development of partnerships with complementary service units on campus, including the Student Technology Centers, Library Information Technology Services, Adaptive Technology Services, the Writing Tutorial Services, and UITS. Her work, innovation, and dedication has had a huge impact in making the Libraries a supportive and welcoming place for students 24 hours a day.

As Director of Public Services, Carolyn established groups such as the Public Services Team, Public Services Council, and the Library Space Committee, and encouraged librarians to engage in outreach and marketing. She brought librarians and staff together to develop a campus wide library orientation initiative for new students and faculty, and to create a marketing initiative.

As Executive Associate Dean, she is instrumental in guiding the Libraries in this transformational time. She has brought users’ needs to the center of the decision making process, involving input from faculty and students, user testing, focus groups, surveys, and assessment. She supports change and innovations that make library resources, collections, and facilities more accessible to users.

Carolyn’s contributions to the IUB University community have been outstanding. In her service to the Council on Student Affairs, Carolyn represented the IU Libraries, sharing insights and concerns with the broader campus community. She has also served for many years as a Hearing Commission Member, considering cases in which students had been charged by the Dean of Students for alleged disciplinary violations. Her leadership and commitment is also demonstrated by her service as Co-Chair of the three of the campus’ four anti-harassment teams for responding to bias-motivated incidents. Finally, she made significant contributions to the revision of the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct. Carolyn was the recipient of the 2002 Michael Gordon Faculty Award given by the Division of Student Affairs for outstanding contributions by a faculty member to student life on the Bloomington campus, and was the first librarian to receive the award. In 2006, Carolyn was accepted for the distinguished I.U. Leadership Development Program for young faculty.

In her many years of service and teaching on campus, Carolyn has been recognized as a superb instructor, winning the 1999 SLIS Teaching Excellence Award for adjunct faculty. Her work to support library instruction and use for business courses, including the case competition in Z302, Managing Behavior in Organizations, has been called incredible, by Keith GeLarden Dayton, Professor, Kelly School of Business.

Carolyn’s service to the Indiana Library Federation is notable, serving as member and Co-Chair for many years of the ILF Legislative Committee, and also serving as the 1995 ILF Annual Conference Program Committee Co-Chair. Past President of ILF, and Co-Chair of the Legislative Committee, Wendy Phillips, called Carolyn a ‘tireless advocate," and "first to volunteer, modeling the way for students and colleagues." She praises her commitment and the positive impact Carolyn has had on the library community in Indiana.

Indiana University faculty minutes 1835-1964, Collection C236: General meetings of the Indiana University faculty began in 1835, to discuss the industriousness of its students, calling student rolls, and hearing reports on the work and standing of each of the students. Disciplinary measures, dismissals, and exams for students were also discussed during many of the meetings throughout the nineteenth century. By the 1920s, the faculty had grown to such a point that it was necessary to create a representative body of the faculty, but the faculty as a whole continued to meet with some regularity. Today the faculty body rarely meet, but may be convened by the IU president, the Secretary of the University Faculty Council, or on petition signed by voting faculty members numbering no less than 5% of all voting faculty members.

Frank St. Leger papers, 1927-1968, Collection C318: Musician and conductor Frank St. Leger was a professor of music at Indiana University from 1953-1968. Prior to accepting the teaching position at IU, St. Leger held a number of noteworthy positions in the music and entertainment business, including a teaching position at the Royal Academy of Music in London, accompanist for top performers such as Austrialian soprano Nellie Melba, and musical advisor for the Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation. Collection focuses largely on St. Leger's music career prior to teaching at Indiana University and includes correspondence, notes and ideas for lectures and musical productions, recorded music lectures, and newspaper clippings. Prominent in the collection is St. Leger's correspondence with Spyros P. Skouras, president of Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation, regarding St. Leger's ideas for musical programs.

Research and the University Graduate School records, 1962-2003, Collection C323: The Graduate School at Indiana University was founded, upon the recommendation of the Committee on Advanced Degrees, on February 1, 1904. For many years, a Research Committee handled the many graduate research funding requests until the 1977-1978 school year, when the Office of Research and Graduate Development (R&GD) was established to govern higher research at IU. In 1989, R&GD merged with the University Graduate School to become Research and the University Graduate School (RUGS). To lead this program, George Walker was appointed Dean of the Graduate School and Associate Vice President for Research. The merger combined the financial resources of the two offices while unloading some of the recordkeeping and admission duties onto the individual schools within the university. As a result, RUGS administrators were better able to work on cultivating financial resources and to study graduate student concerns. Prominent in the collection are records reflecting the heavy research mission of the university, such as the files on the many research centers and institutions, which comprises more than half of the collection.

Archive-it Pilot Group

Please come and join our local Archive-it Pilot Group on Tuesday, May 1 from 9 to 10:30 am in room E174 of the Wells Library to hear about the development of the "Web Archives at Indiana University." This project was established to collect and preserve primary source materials on the web using the Archive-It service and the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine (http://www.archive.org/web/web.php) technology.

Since fall 2005, the Indiana University Libraries have been participating in this RLG-sponsored program to help to preserve and archive freely-available sites on the web. At IUB, a team of library staff representing Cataloging, Collection Development, and the University Archives have been developing methods to select, catalog, and provide access to these born-digital materials. Members of the Pilot Group will talk about our cross-departmental collaboration, the scope of the project, and how you can use these archived web sites in your teaching and research. Scholars and researchers can use these collections to trace changes in publicly accessible web sites and retrieve information that is no longer currently available on the web.

Currently, these three collections are being archived:

Indiana University Web Sites (http://www.archive-it.org/collections/219)

Indiana: State and Local Documents (http://www.archive-it.org/collections/221)

National Government Statistical Web Sites (http://www.archive-it.org/collections/317)

Members of the Archive-it Pilot Group are: Phil Bantin, Julie Bobay, Mechael Charbonneau, Lou Malcomb, Cecile Jagodzinski, Linda Kamoji, Dina Kellams, Linda Kelsey, Charla Lancaster, Andrea Singer, Sylvia Turchyn, and Brian Winterman.

Brown Bag Presentation

The Bloomington Library Faculty Continuing Education Committee invites you to attend a brown bag presentation by Moira Smith, Librarian for Anthropology, Folklore, Sociology, & Social Work, on Wednesday, May 9, 12:00-1:30 in Wells Library, E174.

The event is co-sponsored by InULA.

"Practical Jokes, Unlaughter, and the Mohammed Cartoon Controversy."

In 2006, the world was gripped by riots and demonstrations over some cartoons that depicted the prophet Mohammed. Buildings were torched and some people died in the uproar. If ever one needed a reminder that humor is not a trivial matter, this was it. In my research into practical jokes I have developed a theory of the humor audience that throws light on the cartoon controversy. Here I will present this theory, including the power of both laughter and its opposite--unlaughter. (Moira Smith)

Refreshments will be provided.

Archive-it Pilot Group

Please come and join our local Archive-it Pilot Group on Tuesday, May 1 from 9 to 10:30 am in room E174 of the Wells Library to hear about the development of the "Web Archives at Indiana University." This project was established to collect and preserve primary source materials on the web using the Archive-It service and the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine (http://www.archive.org/web/web.php) technology.

Since fall 2005, the Indiana University Libraries have been participating in this RLG-sponsored program to help to preserve and archive freely-available sites on the web. At IUB, a team of library staff representing Cataloging, Collection Development, and the University Archives have been developing methods to select, catalog, and provide access to these born-digital materials. Members of the Pilot Group will talk about our cross-departmental collaboration, the scope of the project, and how you can use these archived web sites in your teaching and research. Scholars and researchers can use these collections to trace changes in publicly accessible web sites and retrieve information that is no longer currently available on the web.

Currently, these three collections are being archived:

Indiana University Web Sites (http://www.archive-it.org/collections/219)

Indiana: State and Local Documents (http://www.archive-it.org/collections/221)

National Government Statistical Web Sites (http://www.archive-it.org/collections/317)

Members of the Archive-it Pilot Group are: Phil Bantin, Julie Bobay, Mechael Charbonneau, Lou Malcomb, Cecile Jagodzinski, Linda Kamoji, Dina Kellams, Linda Kelsey, Charla Lancaster, Andrea Singer, Sylvia Turchyn, and Brian Winterman.

Staff News

On September 15, 1964, a beautiful young woman with a very sharp mind and a clever wit began her position as Cataloger with the Catalog Dept. at Indiana University Libraries. On May 31, 2007, some 43 years later, Lois Sewell will retire from the IU Libraries, capping a wonderful career that included many aspects of technical service work. During that time Lois was always a cataloger, providing outstanding cataloging for books in West European languages on just about any subject. Lois rose to the top of her profession, serving as a trainer, catalog consultant, mentor, supervisor and acting department head at various times throughout her career. When Lois retires, we expect her lifelong friend "Wanda Furd" to accompany her. While Lois’ departure will be a huge loss to Technical Services, no one can deny that this is a retirement very well earned. I know that you all join me in wishing Lois all the very best in the years to come.

Brown Bag Presentations

Work on the IUB Libraries new Resource Discovery System -- the redesign of our Web site -- is progressing to the point where we can demonstrate some of its features.

We'll do so in a series of informal brown-bag lunch sessions beginning Wednesday, May 23 and recurring every Wednesday through August. Plan to drop by Wells Library E174 between noon and 1 p.m. when a topic interests you.

We'll repeat topics to try to accommodate busy schedules and introduce a new topic every other week. For example: Because user-testing of the search feature will soon begin at the UITS usability lab, at our first session (May 23) we'll demonstrate what has been programmed for that purpose. We'll walk through the tasks we're asking users to test. And we will demonstrate this again the following week (May 30).

Look for future announcements of topics to include:

Westlaw Available for Walk-In Use
 
The Law Library in Bloomington recently subscribed to a version of Westlaw that is available to any walk-in patron. The service is called WestPAC and is available on six workstations in the Law Library lobby. WestPAC has several advantages over Lexis Academic in that one can conduct case searches over all fifty states and federal jurisdictions at once, including the use of the West Topic & Key Number System. Similarly, one can search all state administrative codes at once. In addition to all primary legal materials (cases, statutes, administrative codes), the service contains Amjur Legal Forms, American Law Reports, the Education Law Reporter, and the Amjur legal encyclopedia. The service provides electronic access to treatises in the areas of business, real property, personal injury, and family law. Furthermore, the service contains jury verdict reports for most states, including Indiana. For additional information contact Peter Hook, Electronic Services Librarian (pahook@indiana.edu).

Wylie House Receives Award

Wylie House Museum was the winner of the 2007 “Outstanding Website” award given by the Bloomington Convention & Visitors Bureau at their Hospitality Awards ceremony on Thursday, May 17th. Many congratulations and our heartfelt thanks go to our fabulous SLIS interns (Jennifer Fowle and Suzanne Ingalsbe) and our 2006-7 SLIS GA, Aimee Rose Formo, for their creativity, tenacity and patience with teaching us “older dogs” new tricks! Ms. Fowle spearheaded our first digital exhibit, a remarkable collection of photographs taken between 1904-1916 by Anton Boisen, the grandson of Theophilus and Rebecca Dennis Wylie. The CVB sited the range, variety, and organization of information on our site as the basis for their choice. With the help of these SLIS students, we’ve added five new pages to the site this last year, and updated many of our previous ones.
