The Librazies have established a Digital Library Center to seed and further develop in-house digital programs and
services. The Center's goal is to provide responsive digitization, dissemination, and long-term storage of university
research and resource materials from the Libraries' or selected University collections. The Center will have primary
responsibility for the digitization and delivery of
these resources. The digital -. collections built as a result
will support instruction, distance education, and
scholarly research.
The Center is beginning modestly with five staff
members; three of whom are yet to be hired. The intent is
to expand the staffing and equipment resources
through grants and other fundraising initiatives. The
Center's staff headed byI Erich Kesse, formerly the
Head of the Preservation Department will be working
with a Policy Advisory Committee. Including
faculty from various departments, the Committee
will be charged to identify collaborative projects and
potential funding sources. W-, s..g -O. C,... 4,,, ,I&. S,-PL-C0-. P ...... c ,I, I,,,,,,.... Much of the success of the

The Digital Library Center is already committed to a number of digital initiatives. It is collaborating on a grant funded
by the Institute for Museum and Library Services to link images ofmuseum artifacts and library resources pertaining to
Florida ecosystems. This grant Linking Florida's Natural Heritage, brings together the staff and resources of the Florida
Center for Library Automation, Florida Museum of Natural History, Florida Atlantic University, Florda International
University, and the University of Florida. The complete set of Florida Geological Survey publications is among the print
resources selected for digitization. In addition, the Center is continuing an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded
research project to digitie and index Caribbean newspapers. The Center is also leading a State Universit System (SUS)

Q. Has the lighting replacement project in the Marston Science Library been finished yet?
A. Not quite, but the completed parts look great. Thanks for your patience. For updates on progress, please look for
notices posted in the library and on the library homepage: http: / /web.uflib.ufl.edu
Q. Howis the library going to meet my information needs in the "New Millennium"?
A. While we will continue to provide strong reference service and printed forms of information in the libraries, we
increasingly look to electronic access, delivery and communication systems to better help you identify and obtain
resources that will support your endeavors. For examples, see articles in this issue on the Digital Library Cente;
electronic reserves and IL., electronic collections and the search for a new system.

S Are you a good shopper? Would you like to help us shop for a new library system?
The libraries here at the University of Florida along with all the other libraries of the State University
System are anticipating the purchase of a new integrated library management system. In November
of 1999 the SUS Council of Presidents approved a budget request from the Florida Center for
SLibrary Automation (FCLA) previously endorsed by the Directors of all the SUS Libraries for $8.1
million for a new system. This request is expected to be approved by the Board of Regents and go to
the governor and legislature in January.
Efforts have already begun by a committee of librarians from around the state to explore leading
systems that are now on the market and are being used by other academic libraries around the country. Funding by the
legislature will permit the beginning of a formal process of seeking proposals from vendors and carefully evaluating our
needs and the capabilities and features of each system. It is expected to take a few years before a new system can be
chosen, purchased and fully implemented.
Thanks to the creative efforts of library staff at UF and other SUS libraries working with FCLA, the online catalog
currently in use, now known as WebLUIS, has served exceedingly well over the past fifteen years. While WebLUIS is able
to offer Internet linking functions, its underlying software has become old and outdated. In order to continue to provide
new innovative services in the future we must move to a newer system.
What does this mean to University of Florida faculty and students? It will mean that in the future as innovations are
made for electronic acquisitions, searching, and presenting information, (especially foreign languages in non-Roman
scripts), we should be in a good position to take advantage of them. For now, we encourage you to look at other library
systems as well as the one we currently have and send us your comments regarding particular features you consider
valuable. We welcome your input. The library has a web page for other library catalogs and WebPages at: http://web.
uflib.ufl.edu/inetlib.html that can facilitate your explorations. Please send your comments to: Martha Hruska,
mhruska@ufl. edu.

Submitting intelibrary loan forms electronically is becoming increasingly popular with UF faculty and student. This
is not surprising because there are many benefits to using the electronic forms.
1. ILL requests can be submitted from SUS libraries WebLUIS catalogs, WebLUIS citation databases (such as Bus-iass
Inde and GCrndlAcad ncInd), and FirstSearch databases. Because the citation information (and the requestels
name and address for WebLUIS files) is automatically attached to the ILL request faculty and students save time
and keystrokes.
2. Ill requests may be submitted from home, office, or other remote locations during all WebLUIS ser ice hours.
3. Requesters can send copies of requests to their email address and so have complete information on all their ILL
4. Interlibrary Loan staff can process electronic requests faster because they have complete, legible information that
can be transmitted electronically to material suppliers.
It is the goal of Interlibrary Loan staff to migrate from paper request forms to electronic forms during the year 2000.
We are encouraging faculty and students to use the new forms because we believe this will be a greatbenefit to all.
For assistance in using the forms or for additional information, please contact the Interlibrary Loan office via e-mai
lloan@mail.uflib.ufl.edu, via phone at 392-0311, or come by our office in Room 235 Library West Monday Friday

Amid the celebrations of the -- new millennium are the silent
monuments to out achievements -. -- over the past century -- the
buildings that surround us and f shape our environment. While the
building program of the University ,of Florida dates from the early
1900s, many of us are unaware of the architectural heritage of this
campus. Certainly the names of many structures -- Florida Field, the
Bat House, Library West, Rjeits Union, and others -- conjure up
memories. But who designed and built these buildings?
My own interest in UF's architecture stems in part from my
work as a librarian. The staff of the , Architecture and Fine Arts Library
is often called upon for information ..". about buildings on campus. We are
often challenged in finding basic facts, particularly for newer
structures. So, about a year ago, I commenced developing a reference
tool that would assist the UF community in understanding the
environment we share. That i s resource, UF Bcdea; Tke ArchiteG ore
of the Uniswqa of Fierida exist on Do you recogn~~ this reef? Do yoa knot the Web: http://wArw .uflib.ufl.edu/
ufarch/. The Web has proven to whe i tis locakd on UF's campus? See pae be a perfect medium for
documenting in text and image the seveanfor amwarer changing nature of architecture and
for bringing into one 'site' various kinds of information.
UF Buddi is organized into five sections: The Gallery, the Building
List the Timetable, the Historic Sites Guide, and the Resources Guide. A page of introductory material, a search
function, and links to related resources such as the online campus map complement these parts. The Gallery page
provides access to approximately 600 original color images of UF's buildings. These pictures were taken at particular
times and seasons to capture the best features of a structure or site. The 245 works presented include buildings under
construction (ike the Baughman Center) as well as those planned for demolition (Hume Hall, Woman's Club) in addition
to landscaped environments such as Lake Alice and the various athletic fields.
The Building List section provides basic information on approximately 350 of UF's 900+ structures. Basic data
include the work's architect build; date, and size. Details such as for whom the building is named and significant
features such as decorations and sculpture are also noted. Works in this list also link to images in the Gallery. The third
section, the Timetable, lists in chronological order key events in UF's building program.
How many UF buildings are on the National Register of Histonic Places? Browse UF Bufd's Histonic Sites Guide
section for interesting pictures and details about the many historic sites on this campus. Many of UF's early buildings
were designed in the Collegiate Gothic style, and campus architecture throughout the decades has often reflected elements
of this style. Complementing this section is an illustrated description of the Collegiate Gothic using UF buildings as
examples. There is also a page describing the career of William A. Edwards, the university's first architect.
The final section of UF Budds -- the Resources Guide -- provides ample resources for further study. Key among these
is GSuid to the Uniiwsip of Florida andGamesilf by Kevin McCarthy and Murray Laurie (1997) available in the UF Libraes.
The Resources Guide includes the most extensive bibliography to date of books, journal and newspaper articles, and
archival resources of value in exploring UF's building program. Also provided are links to relevant websites providedby
UF's Campus Planning and Construction Management Department (linking to the campus master plan), Physical Plant
Division, News and Public Affairs Office, and the Library's Special Collections Department. Special Collections houses a
nch collection of archival information about campus buildings.
One of the unexpected but welcomed rewards of the UFTLBdd website is its ability to bring together more cohesively
individuals and groups on campus interested in UF's built environment. Notable among these groups is UF's
Preservation of Historic Buildings and Sites Committee, chaired by Susan Tate. This group, which plays a leading role in
informing the community about UF's building heritage, is especially interested in collaborating to enhance the website.
Several campus units have expressed interest in using UF Buds' pictures. Feel free to contact me fr permission to use
the pictures, or to offer suggestions and comments about the website.

ONLINE is increasingly becoming the preferred mode for delivering course reserve materials in the
Smathers Libraries because it enables students to access and print full text items in the libraries or from
remote locations during all WebLUIS service hours. A course reserves link at the top of the library
web page leads to the materials and more information on the service for instructors (including how to
submit materials electronically) and new student users (basic instructions and free download of Adobe
Acrobat the required reader). Since the first electronic reserves pilot project was initiated during fall
w semester, 1998, in the Marston Science Library, the libraries have been expanding e-reserves services
to other library units. Now course reserve procedures and policies are being updated to reflect this.
These policies can be found online at http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/ersvinst.html.
Traditional reserve service continues for books and non-print materials (either library copies or personal copies) with
access provided at the various circulation desks. Materials delivered through electronic reserves fall into three categories.
1. Itmss 6athastwlocy-hdd prigh4 such as class notes, sample examinations, or student papers. For these, the
library asks that instructors provide written approval of the author (e.g, instructor student contributor, etc.) for electronic
reserves. Library staff will scan the items) and provide a link from the class reserve list.
2. Artidcs and oathw f taet matadias that Aawe n pudhoad ov lican sd by th ibvaries. The libraries have purchased access
to a vast array of full-text resources and encourage faculty to identify and assign articles and other full text materials from
them. Library staff can assist in determining the availability of individual items within these databases.
Library staff will provide a link to the material from the reserve list. For items where a direct link to the specific
reading is not possible, library staff will set up online instructions on how to access the material.
3. Othr cpwyrightdmsstwi~ds. Digital presentation of materials provides multiple access and consequently requires
authoriation from the copyright holder. Library staff will seek permission from the copyright holder to make
copyrighted course reserve items available via electronic reserves. Instructors are asked to notify library staff at the time
of submission if permission has already been obtained. Material will be made available on reserve for a limited period of
time while library staff seek permission. If permission is not obtained, the material will be removed from electronic
reserve. Excessive fees charged by copyright holders may also prohibit making certain materials available. In these
instances, the library will inform the

and procedures will greatly improve

The Baldwin Library of Historical Childreds Literature in the Department of Special Collections, is one
of the sources for "Recess" radio programs broadcast over NPRstations nationwide. "Recess" originates
and is produced at Classic 89 on the University of Florida campus and is picked up by over 30 NPR
stations throughout the country. It is a three-minute program, focusing on children's media, including
literature, which airs every weekday.
Four programs a month, written and narrated by Rita Smith, Curator of the Baldwin Library, focus on
historical childreds literature. The historical programs focus on childreds authors of the nineteenth
century such as Lewis Carroll or Frances Hodgson Bumett or on some aspect of nineteenth or early twentieth century
children's literature such as alphabets, manners books, or conundrums. Three of the historical programs have been based
on objects found in the older books, including baseball cards, inscriptions, communion cards, book marks, and
handwritten notes.
Other "Recess" programs discuss contemporary children's literature, flm, and late twentieth century children's
culture. The programs, recorded a month in advance at the Classic 89 Studio, are up-linked to satellite and may be picked
up for free by any NPR station in the country. Locally, "Recess" is aired at 6:55 a.m, during one of the local segments of
NPRs Morning Edition.
More information on "Recess" and transcripts of the programs can be found at the "Recess" website: http://www.

Limited Access Depository (LAD), the remote storage facility for UF Smathers Libraries was occupied in November
1997. Its initial 46,000 linear feet of shelving was more than 80% filled by summer 1999. In late December new shelving
was added to fill out the last of the facility floor space. LAD now has roughly 20,000 linear feet of shelves empty out of a
total 61,000 linear feet storage capacity, or about a third available for storage growth. We anticipate this growth room will
be used quickly as collection managers select material for LAD in an effortto loosen up the tight Library West stacks.
In terms of use, over the last four months of 1999 the daily average number of items retrieved from LAD was 17,
four of which were for Interlibrary Loan. Retrievals for graduate students constituted almost half of the remaining
Storage Unit policy has been to restore to the active collection those items requested multiple times. Very few items
over the last two years have been transferred back to Library West for usage reasons. Collection management storage
assignment decisions up to now seem to be sound.
Storage material retrieval from LAD to Library West Circulation Desk is guaranteed within twenty-four hours.
Onsite browsing at the unstaffed facility located beneath Goodys on 13th Street may be arranged by appointment.
Contact the Storage Unit Coordinator Max Mauney at 392-0345 in Library West (hmauney@mail.uflib.ufl.edu) for
answers to any storage questions or problems or to schedule onsite use.
