Three hundred students joined David S. Guzick, M.D., Ph.D., senior vice president for health affairs and president of UF&Shands Health System; Cecilia Botero, associate dean and the Fackler director of the Health Science Center Libraries, and Judith Russell, dean of university libraries, at the ribbon-cutting event. The renovation, which began last October, created a contemporary space that now meets the needs of students and faculty. The collaborative study space creates a venue for interaction where students can conduct their research. The new space is inviting, with increased access to technology and power, more natural lighting and informal casual seating. Power outlets were added to the floors and columns for students laptops and devices; air system upgrades were made and new lighting, flooring, wood paneling, ceiling tiles and paint completed the renovation.INSIDE 2 Panama Canal centennial collaborations 3 Yearbook digitization; Authors@UF 4 ARTBOUND artists books 6 Exhibits Harold Hanson receives presidential medallion 7 Library student assistant scholarship winner In memoriam: Robert Zieger Friends of the Libraries application 8 Message from the dean

2 Chapter One SPRING 2013Return trip to Panama fosters collaboration and sponsorshipby Rachel Schipper Associate Dean and Chair, Panama Canal 2014 Centennial Judy Russell, dean of University Libraries and Rachel Schipper, associate dean and chair, Panama Canal 2014 Centennial, traveled to Panama in March 2013 to discuss potential collaboration and sponsorship for the Panama Canal collection. is years goal was to broaden and build relationships with historians, directors, librarians, and corporate and government ocials in Panama with the help of funding provided from a National Leadership Grant, the fourth largest awarded in the nation. Russell and Schipper returned to Panama to visit with Ernesto Holder and his sta, Ilya Marotta, executive vice president and Jorge Quijano, CEO of the Autoridad del Canal de Panama (ACP). e group is involved in the documentation of the Canal expansion project and has collected oral histories, video and historical information. Angeles Ramos Baquero, director of the Museo del Canal Interoceanico de Panama in the historic Casco Viejo (Old Town), donated three books to the UF collection, the most recent being the catalog from the Paul Gauguin exhibit. A highlight of the visit each year to Panama is the tour of the expansion project, given by Jan Kop, project manager of the Jan de Nul Group. e progress is impressive with ve countries working together on this massive project. Last year, the tour was of the suboor of the planned Canal with only the great open cavern visible; this year, the large lock door supports are completed and are ready to receive the Italian-made chamber doors. ese new locks are placed adjacent to the current lock system, but will be measurably larger and able to accommodate post-Panamax vessels 24 hours a day. e week in Panama included meetings with Glenroy James, president of the Sociedad de Amigos del Museo AfroAntillano de Panama and six members of SAMAAP, the support society for the museum, where a referral to Professor Gerardo Maloney was made. Maloney, former ambassador to Trinidad/Tobago, author and sociologist/documentarian of the Afro-Antillano experience, shared several books of poetry, an article for the upcoming Centennial publication, and indicated he would consent to the showing of two of his award-winning documentaries. A visit with Ileana Turner of the Tribunal de Cuentas de Panama was planned, since Turner is the mother of Luchia Daschberg, who helped inventory the 1,400 molas (traditional costume of a Panamanian Kuna woman) in the UF collection. Ileana shared booklets that describe the goals of the court. Russell and Schipper stopped to greet University of Panama President, Gustavo Garcia de Paredes and several members of his administrative sta who handle extension services (reciprocal contracts with other universities). With the assistance of the humanities and engineering deans in Panama, an agreement with the University of Florida may become a reality. Next on the itinerary was a visit with Rosa Maria Britton, president of the National Library Foundation and employees who work on digitization of historic materials. A two-volume set and important book about the Panama Canal was gied to the collection with promises to consider collaboration with the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC). Mark Quinn, president of the Roosevelt Medal Holders Descendent Association and Bruce Quinn, theatrical producer/director, with Orlando Hernandez, Colonial Panama historian discussed the upcoming Panama centennial celebration in Gainesville over lunch. An evening visit with 20 members of the Gator Club of Panama initiated a discussion of the many opportunities to involve these alumni in the Centennial. A visit with Jonathan Farrar, the U.S. Ambassador to Panama, resulted in an invitation for the Ambassador to speak in Gainesville, perhaps during the Center for Latin American Studies Symposium focused on Panama in March 2014. A tour of the soon-tobe opened BioMuseo, designed by Frank Gehry, with George Angehr, ornithologist and director, completed the visit to Panama. Angehr participates in the UF National Science Foundation Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) Project with faculty from the Florida Museum of Natural History.

4 Chapter One SPRING 2013 Many people wonder, What are artists books? Even those of us that make artists books struggle with the definition. An important element in defining an artists book stems from an artists motivation. The intent of an artists book is the expression of an artistic vision as opposed to a book having only a literary or informational purpose. Artists books are not simply a book by an artist they are themselves a work of art. Within the realm of artists books, there is a broad range of ways of making. Some books are one-of-a-kind pieces much like a painting. Many artists books are editioned in small numbers, usually between 30 and 100, but sometimes more. Artists books also vary in technique, ranging from traditional fine press printing (letterpress and fine woodcuts) to sculptural objects that break the rules of a traditional codex. One of the most unique artists book collections at George A. Smathers Libraries is the ARTBOUND Collection. Supported by the Marjorie S. Coey Library Endowment, the collection features contemporary works by students making books in book arts and/or ne arts programs across the United States. e competition has occurred annually since 2010 and has accumulated a collection of over 100 artists books. e works have been selected by jurors from Smathers Libraries and the School of Art and Art History (2010); by photo artist and UF alumni, Bea Nettles (2011); and by renowned book artist, Sarah 4 Chapter One SPRING 2013 SPRING 2013 Chapter One 5 Artists BooksA hands-on special collection by Ellen Knudson Associate in Book Arts Bryant of Big Jump Press (2012). e artists books are part of the permanent collection at the Smathers Libraries. e jurors selected handmade artists books created using a variety of media such as letterpress printing, intaglio, inkjet, screen printing and handmade paper. e books are all high quality, original works made by emerging book artists. Exposure to book arts is of great interest to many students in the disciplines of printmaking, painting, drawing, graphic design, architecture and English/creative writing at the University of Florida. As the collection has grown, so has the number of students using it. e importance and use of seeing work done by collegiate peers, in addition to seasoned artists, is the recognition that the goal of creating distinctive work is achievable. Work that is done by master printers and experienced artists can be so rened and ideal that it seems unattainable. Professional work is oen considered precious and can be physically restricted from tactile use (e.g. white gloves or glass vitrine). Student work is special and is protected, but the intent of the ARTBOUND collection is hands-on use. When being introduced to a new medium, it is inspirational to touch and interact with work produced by contemporaries in conjunction with more complex, master work. e purpose of the ARTBOUND collection is to stimulate interest in contemporary artists books at the Libraries and to encourage future collecting in this area. It is intended that the ARTBOUND competition and exhibit will become an annual or I use the crafts of letterpress printing and hand bookbinding, combined with more modern technologies such as photopolymer plates and laser cutting, to create work that is often designed digitally, but produced with an intense attention to the materiality of the resulting piece. For me, the physical manifestation of the book is often of equal importance to the visual and textual ideas expressed within the pages in conveying meaning and in affecting the experience of the reader/ viewer. This experience begins with the initial perception of the container for a piece, and continues through the process of reading/viewing and through the manipulation of the pieces structure and materials. At the core of my interpretation is the act of reading, and the element of time that is essential to this act.

6 Chapter One SPRING 2013 EXHIBITS Smathers Library Gallery, 2nd floor Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m.TestimonyThrough June 14, 2013 Testimony documents the impact of the Holocaust on the victims and survivors, and it gives voice to the aftershock felt by subsequent generations. The exhibition is inspired by recent donations to the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica. Testimony showcases primary sources that bear undeniable witness to the Holocaust. The exhibition highlights previously unseen letters from members of the Stirt family sent from the Kovno Ghetto before they were murdered by the Nazis at Ninth Fort, as well as the papers and unpublished autobiography of the late Emanuel Merdinger, a concentration camp survivor and former professor at the University of Florida. Testimony also features photographic evidence of the concentration camps taken by Colonel Mitchell of the U.S. Signal Corps in 1945, together with photographs distributed to soldiers as part of General Eisenhowers news campaign. Newspapers, pamphlets and monographs published right at the end of the Second World War, testifying to the atrocities, are shown along with memoirs and memorials produced by survivors and dispersed communities. Artistic responses to the Holocaust by Florida-based artists Kenneth Treister and David Crown serve as testimony to the ways in which this crime affected those who lived through the era. Curated by Rebecca Jefferson.UPCOMINGARTBOUND 123: A RetrospectiveSeptember October Winning works and the highlights of three years of ARTBOUND will be showcased.

Hanson was presented the Presidential Medallion by Senior Vice President and COO for the University of Florida Winfred M. Phillips on December 17, 2012 at a dinner sponsored by the George A. Smathers Libraries. Dr. Hanson has had a long history of distinction in serving the University of Florida, as both a faculty member and senior administrator.

During the 1970s, Dr. Hanson provided the support needed to assure the purchase of privatelyowned libraries that now form the foundation of the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica, the major research library for Jewish Studies in the southeastern United States. Dr. Hanson lent his personal support to the preparation of one of the nations rst Challenge Grants to come from the National Endowment for the Humanities, signing UFs successful $500,000 proposal to make possible the purchase of the Rabbi Leonard C. Mishkin Library of Chicago for UF. It was the largest personal library of Judaica and Hebraica in the United States. His recognition of its importance for UFs future research programs and academic standing that such rare and signicant research resources could bring to the institution eventually set the philosophical stage for continued acquisitions special collections materials. Dr. Hansons contributions to the University and to the Libraries have substantively enhanced the Universitys ability to attract and support students, faculty, sta and researchers. He has taught generations of students, inuenced UFs progress towards academic excellence and helped create an environment that respects and supports libraries and their mission of service to the university community.Harold P.

e libraries have completed another busy and productive academic year with students, faculty and researchers heavily using the library buildings, computers and online resources, along with attending library instruction classes and educational events. is rst year of student government funding the Library West extended hours allowed the building to remain open 24 hours a day, ve days a week throughout the fall and spring semesters. Many students use the library in the late night/early morning hours and appreciate the opportunity given to them by student government. Mental health counseling major Alejandra Delgado recently wrote about the libraries, saying, e resources we have are endless. From laptops that we are able to check out to interlibrary loans, students at UF are sure to nd what they need. Additionally, we are incredibly fortunate to have a library that is open 24/5 with a Starbucks on the rst oor. Aer a day at work, full of classes or activities, the library is the best place to be to nish your day strong in academics! irty iPad 3s were recently purchased with funds from the UF Student Technology Fee and Student Government as a pilot project in Library West that will debut this summer. Students will be able to check them out for seven days at a time. If the pilot project is successful, iPads will become available in the other libraries in the fall. is past semester the libraries held a wide variety of events aimed at students, faculty, sta and the community. ese events included exhibits on the Florida quincentennial; Values in Action: 75 Years of the Visionaires, Gainesvilles rst formal organization for African-American women; and a traveling exhibit, A Voyage to Health with related speakers and lm showings.
