George A. Smathers Libraries




LIBRARY NEWS


In an effort to deliver information
about the UF Libraries using an
alternative delivery method, a
"virtual tour" of the nine major
libraries on campus is now available.
Library patrons can view the video
and listen to accompanying audio to
learn more about each library via a
link on the libraries' home page.
Finding the campus locations of all
the libraries is as simple as clicking on
the link, which opens a map of cam-
pus that highlights each library. To
find out more about the collections
and services available at each location,
patrons can click on the highlighted
location on the map, which then opens
a page containing both textual infor-
mation about the library and a
video/audio clip showing details about
that specific library location.
The Smathers Libraries are con-
sidering using additional streaming


video segments to provide library
instruction to patrons needing infor-
mation about basic research tasks
such as finding journal articles, locat-
ing specific databases or using the
library catalog. According to John
Ashcraft, electronic formats coordina-
tor for the Marston Science Library
and video coordinator for the project,
the primary purpose of using multi-
media and videos on the libraries' web
site is to offer information normally
distributed in printed handouts in a
more exciting, up-to-date format that
takes advantage of new broadband
Internet capabilities.
"Students and visitors touring this
web site and watching the videos will
get a much better idea of what our
libraries are like than just reading a
handout. As the old saying goes, a
picture is worth 1,000 words," said
Ashcraft. "This is a more high-tech
way to reach patrons, visitors, and
-prospective
students who
have high-speed
DSL or cable
connectivity."
Accessing
the videos


requires a broadband Internet con-
nection (at least 128K), Macromedia
Flash, and Quicktime 6. Links are
provided from the introduction page
enabling patrons to download the free
software from the product web sites.
The tour can be accessed via the
Smathers Libraries home page at
http://www.uflib.ufl. edu or directly

Frequently Asked
Questions

Q. When will the libraries' shiny new
online catalog be unveiled?
A. The installation of Aleph, our new
library management system and
online catalog, is well under way but
has fallen a little behind schedule.
Our current expectations are for an
early July completion of the switch,
which will be timed to minimize
inconvenience to our patrons.
Q. I have some books checked out
and am not finished with them yet.
What do I need to do to renew them?
A. You do not need to do anything.
Because of complications associated
with our new identification numbers,
the library has decided to globally
renew all the items charged out by
faculty that would have been due
April 1 without requiring any activity
on their part. The new due date will
be October 1.


Remote Access to Library Resources

With summer approaching it is important to remember that you do not need
to lose contact with library resources while you are away from your office. The
Remote Access link on our main page will take you to a web page that presents a
number of options for connecting to library resources
(http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/access.html). These options include Gator Link Dial-
Up (a free Internet Service Provider for local connections), Primary Proxy,
Secondary Proxy and UF Virtual Private Network.
The newest option, Primary Proxy, was established In August 2002. Primary
Proxy is an easy way to connect both locally and from out of town. Primary Proxy
can be used with any Internet Service Provider and Web browser. This service uses
either your activated 14-digit library 1 numibei, oir voi I Ca toilt- ink uisernlame/

Libraries Acquire Four-Millionth Volume

Displaying a commitment to partner
with the George A. Smathers Libraries in F
building the university's intellectual *.
resources, the University Athletic
Association has funded an important mile-
stone the four-millionth volume. The rare
book, valued at $17,000, is Urania Propitia
written by the first modern-era female
astronomer, Maria Cunitz (1610-1664) and
is one of only nine copies in existence.

Millionth-Volumes Display
Stop by the display window of Marston Science Library during April to
learn about the four-millionth volume which is represented by photograph to
avoid damage to the book. The display also includes photos of the libraries'
first, second, and third-millionth volumes. For more information about all of
these volumes, see the web site at

Librarians Join Medical Faculty to Teach
Evidence Based Medicine to Residents

Linda Butson, assistant director for Outreach Services at the Health Science
Center Libraries, and Pam Sherwill, College of Nursing librarian, have collabo-
rated with the College of Medicine's Division of Internal Medicine Residency to
bring the resources of the Health Science Center Libraries to the teaching of
Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) at Shands Hospital.
In 2001, Department of Internal Medicine faculty approached Butson and
Sherwill to collaborate in the training of internal medicine residents. The
librarians began by working with first and third year residents once a month to
show them the Health Science Center Libraries' online resources. In 2002, two
chiefs of residents approached them to take it a step further by participating
directly in the Division's morning report at Shands Hospital.
One resident is assigned to sit with the librarian at a laptop connected to
the network and search the databases for information relating to the issues
that arise during the meeting. Residents do the actual searching themselves.
The librarians then learn more about specific research needs of residents.
The response from the medical faculty and chiefs of residents has been
very positive. Butson and Sherwill have trained other reference librarians at
the Health Science Center Libraries in EBM reference work. They have worked
with one generation of chiefs and are scheduling librarians to work with the
next generation of morning report teams beginning in July. Residents agree
that this collaboration has been a very productive part of their education.

Sherwill to collaborate in the training of internal medicine residents. The
librarians began by working with first and third year residents once a month to
show them the Health Science Center Libraries' online resources. In 2002, two
chiefs of residents approached them to take it a step further by participating
directly in the Division's morning report at Shands Hospital.
One resident is assigned to sit with the librarian at a laptop connected to
the network and search the databases for information relating to the issues
that arise during the meeting. Residents do the actual searching themselves.
The librarians then learn more about specific research needs of residents.
The response from the medical faculty and chiefs of residents has been
very positive. Butson and Sherwill have trained other reference librarians at
the Health Science Center Libraries in EBM reference work. They have worked
with one generation of chiefs and are scheduling librarians to work with the
next generation of morning report teams beginning in July. Residents agree
that this collaboration has been a very productive part of their education.

Libraries Feature "150 Readers"

for National Library Week

Celebrate National Library Week April 7-11 by enjoying a few good stories!
Since UF is also celebrating its 150th birthday, the libraries will feature
"150 Readers" during National Library Week. Each day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.,
under a canopy in front of Library West, faculty, staff, and students will read
excerpts from their favorite books in five to 30 minute segments. It will all be very
informal, so stop by when you can, leave when you need to, and enjoy a variety of
literature read in not only inEnglish but also other languages.
Each days' readers will be posted by the canopy, inside Library West, and on a
web site: http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/jour/150index.htm

Libraries Participate in Interlibrary Loan
Performance Study

The University of Florida Smathers Libraries is a participant in the Association
of Research Libraries (ARL) Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Performance
Measures Study. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-sponsored study is part of
ARL's New Measures Initiative. The study seeks to examine current data on inter-
library loan/document delivery operations in research and academic libraries.
Elements of the study include tracking unit costs, fill rates, turnaround time, staff
cost, networking cost, etc. It also focuses on mediated and unmediated (user-initi-
ated) interlibrary loan services. The results of the study will be used to identify
the characteristics of an effective borrowing and lending interlibrary loan opera-
tion. The Smathers Libraries also participated in the 1995 study.
