(Bob) Bryan honored at receptionBy Barbara Hood Public Information Ocer Robert A. (Bob) Bryan was honored at a reception on October 22, 2011 for his contributions to the George A. Smathers Libraries Leadership Board. Bryan, former interim president of the University of Florida (1989-90), joined the leadership board in 2004 and continued to provide leadership and service to the libraries through 2010. His contributions to the board included lobbying and advocating the vital role of the UF Libraries in academic success and excellence. His long-time association with UF and the libraries are greatly valued and appreciated. Bryan viewed his service on the library leadership board as an avenue to nd people who want to support the libraries. Im impressed by the quality of the people on the board. Its one of the most impressive boards that we have (at UF). Im very optimistic that we will do some good, he said while serving on the board. e reception was attended by Bryans friends and family members who paid tribute to him by sharing anecdotes and memories of him through the years. e libraries presented him with a plaque to be placed under one of the restored windows in the Smathers Library Grand Reading Room.

2 Chapter One Library student assistant scholarship winner Kristina Wilson, a senior from Miami, Florida, was awarded the fall 2011 James and Leslie Rutherford Library Student Assistant Scholarship. Wilson works at the Auxiliary Library Facility (ALF) in a variety of capacities including cataloging, copy cataloging and upgrade cataloging. She is an English major with a minor in art history. Wilson curated the exhibition Anomalies and Curiosities of the Baldwin Library of Historical Childrens Literature in the Special Collections gallery of Smathers Library August 1-September 15, 2011. e $500 scholarship is awarded during the fall and spring semesters to a student assistant employed by the Smathers Libraries.Dean Judy Russell and Associate Dean for Advancement and Development Samuel Huang award the scholarship to Kristina Wilson.But wait! eres more to be done!!! We have all been opportuned usually on TV and now more recently through the Internet to buy into what is claimed to be a bargain: Two for the price of one; new and improved and double the quantity; just pay shipping and handling. If not completely satised, (double) your money back! Too good to be true? Too oen not true enough to be even partially good. In this, my rst essay as the Library Leadership Boards president, I want to begin by acknowledging all the good and positive work that the Dean of Libraries, the Associate Dean for Advancement and Development and other members of the libraries sta have garnered for the Smathers Libraries. Having been both a former administrator within the libraries as well as its interim Development Ocer on several occasions, I understand only too well the metaphor that if the head does not lead, the body will not go where it should. I also believe strongly that leaders can only be successful if they are willing and able to do what they ask others to do. We are looking right into the face of the conclusion to the University of Florida capital campaign. With little more than a year to go, the libraries are standing on a precipice for our portion of the campaign: do we stop where we are, almost make our goal and rest content, avoiding a drop into the precipice of failure? Or do we gather speed and leap the gap that separates us from our success? We are the many friends of the libraries who have contributed time, inuence and substance to help us reach our goal of $20 million: members of the board (past and present), members of the libraries (sta and librarians), faculty, students, alumni and many other supporters have enabled us through monetary and in-kind gis to reach at present 82 percent of our goal. We have achieved this level of success because we have honored and memorialized family and friends by naming windows in the Smathers Library; some of us have created endowments that support not only the collections but the services that our students, faculty and friends have come to rely on for their work; we have used the books of honor program for family, friends and those we admire. Academics, administrators, alumni and collectors have generously given us gis of their collections without which our research resources would be much the poorer. Tom Woodell, our boards immediate past president, included in his nal report the words: continuing eorts and annuity-like support are critical to the ongoing ability of the libraries to meet the needs of the other various academic programs on the campus of the University of Florida. It will be my goal, in concert with the board and the libraries, to bridge the gap that remains and achieve a successful conclusion to the libraries part of the capital campaign. By John Ingram Library Leadership Board PresidentSpeaking out John Ingram


Chapter One 3 On September 23, 2011 the Architecture Archives in the Department of Special and Area Studies Collections hosted a special event and reception honoring the architecture of renowned architect Alfred Browning Parker. Parkers architectural career spanned seven decades and he was one of Floridas most prolic and inuential midtwentieth century modernist architects. He was greatly inuenced by Frank Lloyd Wrights Organic Architecture and was the only architect Wright recommended as an American Institute of Architects (AIA) Fellowan honor that recognizes architects who have made a signicant contribution to both architecture and the greater society, achieving a standard of excellence in architecture at both a local and national level. e celebration featured a lecture and book signing by Randolph C. Henning, author of the new book, e Architecture of Alfred Browning Parker: Miamis Maverick Modernist and a special viewing of Our Pacesetters a documentary lm by Holly du Rivage. Two special exhibitions were also featured: Alfred Browning Parker: A Lifes Work, and an exhibition by graduate students from the UF School of Architecture, Digital Interpretations of the Regional Architecture of Alfred Browning Parker. e author, Randolph Henning, delighted the Parker family, friends and architecture students with his personal memories of Alfred Browning Parker during their eighteen year relationship while writing the book, and lmmaker Holly du Rivage spoke of her familys relationship with Parker as he designed her family home and the lasting impact he made in their lives. Especially memorable were the personal accounts from family members who spoke of the lasting legacy of Alfred Browning Parker as an architect and beloved husband and father. e Director of the School of Architecture, Martin Gold, and professor Guy W. Peterson spoke of Parkers architectural inuence on the next generation of architects and invited the audience to view the detailed analyses done by the students in the exhibition. John Nemmers, the descriptive archivist who worked closely with Parker in processing his collection, shared the importance Parker placed on the education of future architects by providing them access to documents of our built heritage. Parker was instrumental in establishing the Architecture Archives in the Smathers Libraries when he deposited his architectural collection at UF, and the Architecture Archives has now become the leading repository in the state of Florida for the preservation and scholarly research of Floridas architectural heritage.

Libraries create catalog of digital historical newspapersBy Matthew Loving Romance Languages/Area Studies Librarian e Catalog of Digital Historical Newspapers (NewspaperCat) is available at www.newspapercat.org. NewspaperCat is an online database providing links to over 1,000 full-text digital newspapers in the United States and Caribbean. e projects current coverage, which began with the Southeastern United States, is growing rapidly and will soon cover all y states. NewspaperCat improves access to historical newspapers digitized by libraries, archives, historical societies and other non-prot organizations that remain buried within search engine returns such as Google PageRank. ese newspapers represent a rich source of primary research material for researchers, students and the general public. e project to build NewspaperCat was funded by the George A. Smathers Libraries and developed with the cooperation of the Digital Library Center of the University of Florida. As a free-standing online resource with a unique web address, it is hoped that NewspaperCat will be able to improve access to these important primary resource materials by collectively improving their Google PageRank for online researchers seeking historical newspaper content. NewspaperCat will become the rst index of its kind to ingest and provide access to the Google News Archive as well as newspaper titles from across the United States and Canada. Library supporter Richard Carris talks about his passion for the librariesRichard Carris (UF ), an avid Smathers Libraries supporter, suggested the Academic Sport Challenge program for football and basketball to the Smathers Libraries in 2009. Chapter One editor Barbara Hood asked him recently about his enthusiasm for the libraries. Chapter One: How did the idea of the Academic Sport Challenge begin? Carris: It was during the Florida/Ohio State BCS National Championship game that my son asked why not have alumni contribute money to the library every time the Gators score a touchdown. I thought about this for a few seconds and said, well, that is a great idea. is gave birth to a football campaign challenge, Pay-for-Performance, where one pledges any dollar amount per touchdown. (It has subsequently been renamed the Academic Sport Challenge.) We have had support from Urban Meyer, Will Muschamp and for a similar basketball three point challenge, Billy Donovan and Amanda Butler. It is teamwork between the UAA and UF Libraries. Chapter One: What was the stimulus for you to become involved with the UF Libraries? Carris: It actually goes back to the days I was a student in the late 1970s. For more than 30 years, while working in NYC nancial services, I have continued an investment in my own human capital via educationthis all began in Library East (now called Smathers Library). e most important contributor in my pursuit of continuing education has been the hours invested at the UF libraries. e memories of being engaged in study, research and meeting other students while enjoying the ultimate collegiate experience is why I became involved with UF libraries. Chapter One: Why do you have a passion for UF and for the libraries? Carris: I view the libraries as the other Swamp. In this sport of learning the competition takes place every day in the classroom with the championship during nal exams. You ask why I have a passion for the UF libraries; well think of it compared with Gator football: e duration of the sport I talk about is actually more extensive than any other Gator sport. It includes thousands of hours of practice (study) over years until one reaches the ultimate end zone graduation. Chapter One: What are some other ways that you support the UF Libraries? Carris: I am an active member of the George A. Smathers Library Leadership Board and will fulll a ve year pledge. My other way of supporting the libraries is via active in-person participation such as trips to Gainesville to the Stakeholders Weekend. My father-in-law, Irving Glass, recently began translating Yiddish newspaper titles to English for the Price Library of Judaica under the leadership of collection head Rebecca Jeerson.

is year has been an exceptionally productive and busy year at the Smathers Libraries. We are excited to oer new services, new partnerships and new space to enhance the research and educational experiences of faculty, students, sta and researchers. A few of them I will share with you: We have joined the HathiTrust, a partnership of major research institutions and libraries working to ensure that the cultural record is preserved and accessible long into the future. ere are more than y partners in the HathiTrust, and membership is open to institutions worldwide. Currently, the HathiTrust has 8.9 million digitized volumes. Books that are in-copyright whose owners cannot be identied or located to give permission for digital access are called orphan works. As a result of its participation in the HathiTrust, users of the UF Libraries soon will have access to digital versions of some of the thousands of orphan works held in print by the UF Libraries that are also available in the HathiTrust Digital Library. ese works will be fully searchable, viewable and accessible to UF students and faculty wherever there is a connection to the Internet, and of course, the print copy remains in the libraries if needed. e UF Libraries have made available UBorrow, an unmediated interlibrary loan service that allows current students, faculty and sta to borrow books directly from participating state university libraries when they arent available at UF. e libraries recently acquired online access to several collections of streaming videos that oer a wide variety of content for academic use. Because streaming videos are viewed online, users do not need to spend the time to check out from the library to watch. e subjects range from counseling and therapy, education and opera, to human culture and behavior. Users can access the collections 24/7 to watch full videos or short segments, anywhere an Internet connection is available. We have reclaimed a long hallway in Smathers Library and turned into a quiet study area with comfortable seating and tables. We are always looking for additional spaces for study areas. An online reservation system is now available for the 14 group study rooms in Library West and one in the Education Library. e system makes it more convenient for students to reserve the rooms in advance and assure it will be waiting for them when they need to use it. As we look for ward to next year we are diligently doing everything we can to optimize our existing services, materials and facilities while responding to the needs of patrons to add what we can to enhance their research and education. We are coming into the nal year of the Florida Tomorrow compre hensive campaign at the University of Florida. e libraries have reached 82% of our goal of $20 million. We are most appreciative of those donors who have helped us achieve this goal and look forward to realizing it by the end of 2012. As always, I invite you to contact me at jcrussell@u.edu to schedule a visit and tour of the libraries. Judith C. Russell Dean of University Libraries GEORGE A.
