Howe Society annual dinner

to feature author Nicholas A. Basbanes

by Barbara Hood

he 2005 Howe Society annual
dinner on March 5,2005 will
feature keynote speaker Nicholas
A. Basbanes, noted book collector
and author of books about books.
Basbanes' dynamic story-telling
speaking style has won over audiences
around the country.
His first book, now in its eighth
edition with more than 80,000 copies
in print, A Gentle Madness: Bibliophiles,
Bibliomanes, and the Fi. n, i Passion
for Books, was a finalist for the
National Book Critics Circle Award in
nonfiction for 1995, and was named a
New York Times Notable Book of the
A companion volume, released
in 2001, Patience & Fortitude: A
Roving Chronicle of Book People, Book
Places, and Book Culture, prompted

the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning
biographer and historian David
McCullough to write that "Nicholas
Basbanes has become our leading
authority of books about books and
this, his latest, is a jewel."
Basbanes' third book, Among the
Gently Mad: Perspectives and Strategies
for the Book-Hunter of the 21st Century,
was released in 2002. His latest book, A
Splendor ofLetters: The Permanence of
Books in an Impermanent World, was
released in the fall of 2003.
Michael Dirda of The Washington
Post said,"A Splendor of Letters is itself
splendid and will appeal to any serious
reader or book collector."
In addition to his books about
books, Basbanes has written for
numerous newspapers, magazines,
and journals, The New York Times,

Los Angeles Times,
The Washington
Post, StiiI, si. ilu,
Civilization, and
New England
Quarterly among
them, and lectures
widely on book-
related subjects.
With his wife,
Constance Basbanes, he writes a
monthly review of children's books
for Literary Features Syndicate, which
they established in 1993. They are the

I New Enomet

by Barbara Hood
H. Anson and Lilla S. Moye
Anson and Lilla Moye have
established a $20,000 H.Anson and
Lilla S. Moye Endowment to be used
for the libraries' greatest needs.
Dr. Moye earned his doctorate in
chemistry at the University of Florida
and was a research scientist with the
Department of Food Science and
Human Nutrition. He said that he has
seen first hand from the viewpoint
of a UF student and as a faculty
member how hugely important it is
to have resources available that allow
researchers to collect background
material for research.
"My observation is that the
science of doing this has advanced
dramatically and will advance even
faster with high tech tools being
developed. Hard copies and software
programs have to be bought and
shared. The success of any scientist
- any researcher depends on
gathering information accurately and
quickly. Keeping up to date has to be
difficult for libraries in today's fast-
paced world. The resources that the
libraries have touch all students in all
departments"' said Dr. Moye.

GLBT Film and Resources
Gilbert Vansoi and Darren Roesch,
Ph.D., both UF graduates, have
established a $30,000 GLBT Film and
Resources Endowment at the George
A. Smathers Libraries. Gay and lesbian
cinema as a discrete genre dates from
the early 1970s, emerging in response
to societal changes and a general
loosening of censorship. But it has a
long pre-history dating back to the
silent film era involving gay directors,
screenwriters, and actors.
Page 2 c Chapter One

Gender issues are generally taught
in the Women's Studies program at
the University of Florida. There is a
growing demand from faculty for gay
and lesbian films, but this demand
has been hard to meet during the
past several lean budget years. This
endowment will allow the purchase
of many of the feature films and
documentaries listed in the 1996
documentary film, The Celluloid Closet.
Vansoi said,"Without the
invaluable support of Sandy
Melching of UF's George A. Smathers
Libraries and Cody Helmer of the
UF Foundation, this project would
probably have never seen the light of
day. As University of Florida graduates,
Darren and I are forever grateful
for UF's commitment to diversity
and look forward to a continued
association with the university
and particularly with the George A.
Smathers Libraries." c-

parents of two daughters, Barbara

Well known for writing about
books and bibliophiles, Basbanes
has worked as an award-winning
investigative reporter, a literary editor,
and a nationally syndicated columnist.

Library Leadership
Board adds two
new members

by Brandy Burgess

The UF Library Leadership
Board is proud to announce its two
newest members.
Paula King, of Ocala,
currently serves as the Executive
Director of the Marion Cultural
Alliance, Inc. (MCA), and helped
launch the MCA's signature
project, Horse Fever. She was also
on the Marion County Tourist
Development Council.
"I see the potential for the UF
Libraries to be a great resource for
primary and secondary schools
around the state, as well as at the
college level"' she said.
UF President Emeritus
Marshall Criser also joins the
Library Leadership board this
The second UF alumnus to
be president, Criser received a
bachelor's degree in business
administration in 1949 and a law
degree in 1951.
At UF, he was president of the
Florida Blue Key and president of
Sigma Nu fraternity. Before coming
to the University of Florida,
Criser served as president of The
Florida Bar, was a member of the
Board of Regents and served as
its chairman for four years. Criser
recently served as the chairman
for the UF Board of Trustees. He
resigned that position to become
Chairman of the Scripps Florida
Funding Corp.
Criser said,"The library is
the heart of a great university. As
a member of the Association of
American Universities, UF must
have a library comparable to its
peers." c-

Leadership Hnard Member Prnfile

Anne Haisley

by Brandy Burgess

Anne Haisley loves books.
While growing up in New York,
she remembers walking to
her local library and methodically
scouring the rows of children' books
and checking out the maximum
allotted on each visit.
Today she is still involved with
books, both as a local Gainesville
bookstore owner and as an active
supporter of the UF Libraries, serving
on the Library Leadership Board and
the Howe Society Board.
Haisley and her husband Phil
moved to Gainesville in 1989 and
opened Books Inc., a bookstore and
cafe. She became involved with the
UF Libraries several years ago after
attending a Howe Society function.
The Howe Society impressed
Haisley with its diverse programs
that highlight the libraries' special
collections. She soon became a member
and was asked to serve on the Howe
Society board.
A deep appreciation of books and
their value in society has strengthened
Haisley's commitment to the libraries,
especially the special collections.
"The cultural value of books can
be lost when people die special
collections save that from happening,
from losing that part of history,"
she said.
In 2003, when the Library
Leadership Board was formed, she
also accepted the invitation to serve
on that board. The idea of promoting
the library throughout the state
and making contacts with people is
important to her.
"People do think of the university

and give to UF, but they think of their
own department that they attended,
and do not realize that the libraries are
the backbone behind it."
Haisley would like to see the UF
library system work more with the
local public and have the libraries
provide more tours. When the
Leadership Board went on a tour of
the libraries, that made a personal
impact on Haisley. She believes that
more people should have a chance to
take the tour and experience the depth
and breadth of materials that the UF
Libraries has to offer.
"We need to get more groups
touring the libraries." Haisley said.
"Start with the administrators and the
faculty, and then show the students
what magnificent
resources are available to
Educating people
is something that
Haisley is familiar
with. After receiving
a bachelor's degree in
home economics from
Syracuse University
and a master's degree
in home economics
education from New York
University, Haisley taught
school for seventeen
years in New York.
She then moved to
Australia and worked
for the Department of
Education for the state
of Victoria, where she
taught English and home

UF athletics are also important
to Haisley, and she is a member of
both the Gator Tip-off Club and the
Gator Dugout Club. She is also the
educational foundation chair of the
Gainesville branch of American
Association of University Women and
a board member of the University Park
Neighborhood Association. c-

of the Libraries

Donations received by the
Smathers Libraries between
November 1, 2003 and
January 4,2005

The libraries of the University
of Florida form the largest
information resource system
in the state of Florida. Nine
campus libraries reflect the
university's increasingly broad
research and instruction
programs. Over the past 100
years, faculty and librarians
have built hundreds of
specialized collections, now
totaling more than four million
volumes, printed in practically
every written language by
publishers throughout the world.

The George A. Smathers
Libraries of the University of
Florida includes specialized
collections in science,
architecture, art, history,
languages, and music. Our
collections cover all areas of
contemporary knowledge, from
agriculture to zoology and
from philosophy to history. All
of the libraries serve all of the
university's faculty and students,
but each has a special mission
to be the primary support of
specific colleges and degree
programs. The libraries support
the very best educational,
research and service
performance by university
faculty and students using
the latest on-line technology
and time-honored methods of
collection and preservation.

The Rare Book

Collection on and off


The Rare Book Collection in the
Department of Special and Area Studies
Collections is widely used in the research room
by scholars in many different fields. One frequent
user is Dr. Linde Katritzky, adjunct professor in
the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies.
Dr. Katritzky said,"As my research interests
center on eighteenth century studies, I have
found our university's Special Collections
invaluable and have been using them more
or less intensively for over 20 years. My latest
article was published in'Swift Studies' 19 1 I ", I i,
86-109:'Subtle Satire: Gottlieb Wilhelm Rabener
and the Influence of English Satirists, and it
would have been impossible without the Rabener
volumes in Rare Books. At the moment I am
trying to establish connections between one of
my main research interests, Georg Christoph
Lichtenberg, professor of astronomy and natural
history in Goettingen and of the Royal Society
in London, of which he was a Fellow, and in this
Special Collections are again of the greatest value.
"I need hardly mention that though staff
has changed over the years, everybody has
invariably been so helpful and supportive, that
using Special Collections has always been a
special treat!"

One of the more important books in the
rare book collection, the third edition of Isaac
Newton's Philosophiae Naturalis Principia
Mathematica is currently on loan to the Museum
of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Tampa. The
exhibit is titled Space: A Journey to Our Future
and was created by Clear Channel Exhibitions as
a traveling exhibit.
The third edition is particularly important
as it is the last edition edited by Newton himself
and contains many corrections, emendations,
and additions. The 1967 catalog for the stunning
and all too brief British Museum exhibit Pi ,;,.',
and the Mind ofMan describes the Principia
as "the greatest work in the history of science"
and as revolutionary as Darwin's Origin of
Species. It is the first formulation of the three
laws of motion, from which Newton derived the
principle of gravity. He demonstrated that all
physical events, whether celestial or terrestrial,
were based upon the same mathematics.
This edition was edited by Henry Pemberton,
contains a poem by Edmond Halley, a preface
from the second edition by Roger Cotes, and the
frontispiece portrait of Newton was engraved
by George Vertue after a painting by John
In consideration of the loan, MOSI is giving
a discount to University of Florida ID holders

his issue of Chapter One
profiles two people who are
very much engaged with books.
This "gentle madness" can be interpreted
as a fascination with the transfer of ideas
and knowledge over generations and
certainly it is a madness that libraries
confirm through their very existence.
"But what about Google Scholar?" I am
being asked more and more these days.
Surely there's no need for libraries any
more now that Google Scholar will make
available all those books from Stanford
and Michigan and Harvard.
Well actually, there is still a
need for libraries. If you've read the
announcements carefully, Google will
not allow people to copy or download
pages from the books they digitize, they
will simply allow the books to be read
online. And that's for the books that are
out of copyright. For books still under
copyright, people may only be allowed
to read a page or two that isn't yet
clear. This situation creates problems for
students wanting to quote portions of
the material in term papers or scholars


Chapter One
University of Florida
George A. Smathers Libraries
PO Box 117001
Gainesville FL 32611-7001

wanting to quote for articles or anyone
just wanting to read the entire argument
being made by the author in a chapter or
University libraries are important
as places. Today's students need access
to a variety of academic support
services. For some students and under
some circumstances, they need the
traditional quiet space to study. In
addition, to support today's joint learning
assignments, students need access to
small group study rooms, equipped with
electronic access, where they can work on
group assignments without disturbing
anyone else or being disturbed by others.
They need access to high end computing
facilities to create digital class projects as
well. While most students have their own
computers that handle normal academic
projects, few of them are equipped to deal
with making video/sound presentations.
Also, students need content. They can get
some of it off the Internet, but not all of it.
Some materials still reside only in printed
formats. Too, the library "vets" material;
that is, when it comes from the library,


it is accurate.
In other words,
just as the
library always
has provided
and support for student academic
assignments, it continues to do so.
And finally, people want books.
Librarians have noticed that when we
purchase and make available electronic
books, suddenly the print copies of those
books circulate heavily. What's going
on here? The more we digitize older
materials, the greater the demand to use
them. It seems clear that search engines
pick up keywords and other metadata
describing the digital works so that many
more people find out about relevant
books, journals, or manuscripts than
would otherwise. But why do they then
want the printed book? Although we can
speculate, we don't know for sure. But we
still circulate almost one million books
per year and expect we'll continue to
circulate books for years to come. c'
