IM your librarian

In this highly digitized society, the
Internet provides numerous ways for
individuals to be connected. For many
years, e-mail has provided the means
for information and documents to be
transmitted across a network. It is a
standard Internet protocol that, unlike its
analog counterpart (the letter),is often
sent and received in very little time. The
quickness of this method is attractive, yet
can be tedious when asking a librarian
for assistance. Unless the question is
carefully phrased, volleys of e-mail may be
necessary to accurately provide an answer.
Because e-mail can be time consuming,
instant messaging is becoming a popular
online tool to communicate. Instant
messaging, also called IMing, is almost
as fast as talking to someone on the
phone. When connected to a person, the

conversation is real time, making IM a
much more efficient medium to answer
questions and get speedy responses than
with e-mail.
IM is becoming a way of American
life. Television and magazine advertising
have made popular consumer IM
programs familiar to even those who do
not use the Internet regularly. Some of the
best-known IM programs are AOL Instant
Messenger (AIM), MSN Messenger, iChat,
Jabber, and Google Talk. IM is used heavily
among teens and young adults, including
undergraduate college students. One
study conducted at the Pew Internet and
American Life Project estimates that over
40 percent of Internet users use IM to stay
in touch with friends, at work and to get
assistance with schoolwork or research
Many university libraries have started
IM services to improve research assistance
to their clientele, including the University
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,
University of Michigan at Ann Arbor,
Temple University and SUNY-Buffalo.
The UF Libraries completed an IM pilot
this fall on the University of Florida
Computing and Networking Services'
open source Jabber instant messaging

service for students, faculty and staff. The
service is called Ask a Librarian IM.

Why IM?
A prime benefit of IM is the ability
to easily see if a friend or co-worker is
connected to the Internet, and if so, to
exchange messages. IM is an effective tool
in an academic institution to complement
course management systems like UF's
WebCT Vista, discussion boards and other
vehicles for online learning. Often these
communication tools are limited to small
groups of students in a class. IM has a

broader application: not only can students
use IM to confer with professors and
engage in group work, they also use it to
socialize. IM is a natural communication
medium for generations X andY.

Why IM at the libraries?
The libraries have provided online
help to the UF community for many
years. The George A. Smathers Libraries
was one of the earliest adopters of
e-mail for reference assistance in 1989.
As technology and user expectations
became more sophisticated, the libraries
experimented with real-time services.
RefeXpress was piloted in 2000 on the
Networked Writing Environment of the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The
reference service continued for four more
years, but recently has been discontinued.
The libraries are continuing to offer
real-time online assistance to faculty,
students and staff using four popular IM
services. Users can take advantage of UF's
Jabber IM, an open, XML-based protocol
for instant messaging and presence.
Jabber-based software is very secure, and
has been deployed at numerous other
universities and businesses. People with
AIM, Google Talk, or Yahoo! Messenger
accounts can initiate a help session with

a librarian by IMing the screen name

You, your students and IM
Until one has experienced IM it may
be hard to envision how this technology
can assist you in your own research at
your desk or in a course curriculum.Ask
a Librarian IM extends the services of
academic research librarians and subject
specialists directly to faculty who prefer
to research online in the comfort of their
office or home. The online library staff
can answer questions about the library
Web site, services such as interlibrary loan
and navigation of sophisticated databases.
Faculty and staff in remote research
centers such as Imokalee or Apopka can
easily obtain the same quality reference
service that campus library users enjoy.
Instructors teaching distance courses can
create links on their Web sites or within
WebCT, for easy access by students.
If you would like our librarians to
demonstrate Ask a Librarian IM to your
classes and you teach in a networked
classroom, we will be happy to arrange a
demonstration. Contact your instruction

When the renovations to Library
West are complete all print materials,
both books and periodicals, will
be available under the Library of
Congress classification system.
No longer will patrons find
the older numeric Dewey Decimal
system call numbers on materials
in the new building. The single

Approximately 40,000
volumes have been reclassed from
Dewey to LC as well as over 2,500
periodical titles providing a unified

For the past two years the Baldwin
Library of Historical Children's
Literature and the UF Center for Children's
Literature and Culture have hosted the
Transforming Encounters Colloquia Series,
which explores a range of approaches
for bringing books into children's lives.
The spring 2006 colloquium should
prove to be an outstanding installment
in this series because it is being held in
conjunction with the 12th Annual Public
Interest Environmental Conference,
organized by the students at the College
of Law. The theme of the conference is "In
Fairness to Future Generations," and the
Transforming Encounters: Children and
the Environment colloquium will be one
of the conference's four tracks.
Rita Smith, curator of the Baldwin
Library and associate director of the
Center for Children's Literature and
Culture, believes that "the Center's
contribution to the conference will provide
an opportunity for the articulation and
discussion of some of the problems
children face in an increasingly urbanized,
de-natured world and will showcase some
of the ways the interaction of children
and nature is being encouraged and
accomplished." Smith and her fellow
associate director of the center, Dr.
Kenneth Kidd, serve as faculty advisors
for the conference's Children and the
Environment track and are working
closely with a graduate student from
the English department to finalize
"We have organized four different
panels that will explore children's
interaction with the natural world,"
Smith said."The panels are composed of
people from a variety of experiences and
disciplines: literature and the arts, science
programs, government agencies and
commercial enterprises. We hope it will be
an inspiring and stimulating program"'
The first panel in the Children and
the Environment track will feature a
discussion with Richard Louv, author
of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our

Nature Deficit
Disorder Louv
is a noted
and author of several books focusing
on nature, family, and community. The
second panel, entitled "Earth, Wind and
Fire: Nature, Science and Art,"' will feature
Annie Whittaker Pais of Artists Reaching
Through Teaching, Stewart J. Thomas of
Artists Alliance of North Florida, and Mike
Spranger of Florida Sea Grant. Presenters
Kathy Lehnhardt, curator of education
at Disney World's Animal Kingdom, and
Donald Forgione, bureau chief for the
Florida State Parks' Northeast District, will
comprise the third panel on "Exhibiting
Nature'" The final panel, "Wild Things:
Children's Culture and Ecocriticism," will
feature authors who contributed to a
2004 publication of the same title, which
critically examined the manner in which
children's media, including literature,
addresses nature and ecology. In addition
to Kenneth Kidd and Sidney I. Dobrin
of the UF Dept. of English, co-editors of
Wild Things, panelists include Susan Jaye
Dauer of Valencia Community College and
Michelle H. Martin of Clemson University.
The 12th Annual Public Interest
Environmental Conference will be held
March 9-11, and the four Children and the
Environment panels will be held March
10-11. Information about the conference,
including a final program and registration
information, will be available on the
conference Web site: www.ufpiec.org.
For more information about the Center
for Children's Literature and Culture,
which is committed to cooperating closely
with the Baldwin Library to help raise
public awareness of the contents of its
remarkable collection, please visit

An Exhibit in Miami, February 23 June 4,2006

The intersection of Native American,
European, African and Asian peoples
in the Caribbean since 1492 has generated
countless stories of conflict, degradation
and achievement. Though the voices of
the vast majority of the participants in the
region's dramas are lost forever, some people
created written records of their experiences
and observations. Today, careful study of
these records allows us to discover diverse
accounts of the Caribbean past, ranging from
passing comments on daily occurrences to
reports on major events that changed the
course of world history.
Collaboration between the University
of Florida and the Historical Museum of
Southern Florida (HMSF) in Miami has
resulted in a major exhibit, which will
open at the HMSF on February 23,2006
and be on display until June 4. Caribbean

George A. Smathers Libraries, which
possesses one of the largest Caribbean
collections in the world. Highlighted in the
exhibition are several archival collections
and printed materials held by the
Department of Special and Area Studies
Collections (SASC) in the Latin American
Collection and Special Collections, and
the Map and Imagery Library. Within the
libraries, support and assistance for the
project was also provided by the Digital
Library Center and the Preservation and
Conservation Department.
The collections on display focus on
the histories of the English-speaking
Caribbean, Haiti and Cuba from the
eighteenth to the twentieth century.
Massive social change occurred during
this period: imperial powers fought over
various islands, slavery ended throughout
the region, new forms of plantation and
small-scale agriculture developed, and
independent nation-states, with distinct
Creole cultures, emerged. This exhibition
explores these large-scale transformations
through documents of specific events
in people's lives: letters, diaries, ledger
entries, business records, scrapbook
clippings, photographs, drawings and
similar items. Books and maps provide

Can the outcome of a project for an
undergraduate course in nuclear
and radiological engineering prevent
or diminish a certain kind of cancer?
Or can we learn how to better protect
astronauts from the dangers of solar
flares while they are in space? Can we
design smaller, denser and safer facilities
to store spent nuclear fuels? The answer
is a resounding "Yes" in the final reports
for students of ENU4630, taught in Fall
2005 by Dr. Wesley Bolch. The final project
in Fundamental Aspects of Radiation
Shielding, taught through the Department
of Nuclear & Radiological Engineering in
the College of Engineering, was a radiation
shield design project.
Students were asked to research one
of a variety of radiation facilities, i.e.,
nuclear reactors, food irradiation facilities,
diagnostic X-ray facilities, proton therapy
facilities, and even space shuttles/stations.
They were then asked to design a set
of shielding specifications, to protect
the humans and environment in and
around the facility. They were to report on
dose calculations, radiation attenuation
and scattering estimates in the facility,
assuming it had been built using their
shield design. In addition to a 15-page
research paper, the students were also
required to give a 12-minute presentation
on their project to the class.
Dr. Bolch knew that his students
would need an intimate knowledge of
the literature of the field to produce the
high quality report he was looking for.
So he collaborated closely with Kathryn
Kennedy, UF's engineering outreach
librarian. Earlier this fall, Ms. Kennedy
had been in touch with the faculty of the
department, offering to create specific
library learning modules for individual
classes. Dr. Bolch took her up on the offer,
and on October 24, ENU4630 met in the
computer lab of the Marston Science
Library. Ms. Kennedy had prepared a set
of handouts specifically for the radiation

shielding design project.
She listed specific electronic
databases that would be
directly applicable to the
project, explained how to log on
to various databases, pointed
out which journals came in
full text online and which
ones the library holds in paper
copies, and even gave some tips
and tricks for searching the
databases quickly and easily. It
was hoped that this 50-minute
session would give them the
basis for research on this and
Dr. Wesle'
future projects.r.Wesle
Armed with the
information provided to them by
Ms. Kennedy, many students took a
creative approach toward the project.
One project team explored the options
available to patients undergoing cardiac
catheterization who were subjected to
radiation during a fluoroscopy [a medical
procedure that produces a "movie" using
X-ray technology]. Patients needing a
catheterization who also had thyroid
issues needed extra protection from the
X-rays in their neck area. Using data
found in journal articles, the project team
designed a small, soft, padded, collar-
shaped shield, similar to the apron worn
on the chest by people at the dentist, to
cover the neck area of the patient in order
to limit the risk of inducing thyroid cancer.
In another project, a team studied
a large solar flare that started between
Apollo Missions 16 and 17 during the
summer of 1972. The flare was so large
that if it had occurred while astronauts
were in space, they would have been
injured or possibly killed. Using figures
they found online, the students performed
a dose reconstruction, determining exactly
what levels of radiation the Apollo
astronauts would have been exposed to,
in order to help them learn what levels of
shielding might be required in the future.

y Bolch and Kathryn Kennedy

A third project involved DUcrete,
a product used in the construction
of containers to store, transport and
house spent nuclear fuel. Using DUcrete
(composed of a mix of Depleted Uranium
and regular conCRETE) allows engineers
to design and construct facilities to house
the used fuel that are smaller, denser
and safer than those built using regular
concrete. The project team from ENU4630
confirmed these findings during their
own research using radiation transport
In summary, Dr. Bolch was so
impressed by the quality and variety of
the final projects that he is taking several
of the undergraduates with him to the
Florida chapter meeting of the Health
Physics Society (HPS) to present their
findings to a wider audience. Dr. Bolch
normally takes his graduate students to
make presentations at HPS meetings so
this is quite an accomplishment for the
ENU4630 group.

University Faculty Senate endorses

increased administrative funding

for UF Libraries

O n April 14, 2005, the University
Faculty Senate unanimously passed
a motion from the Senate Council on
Academic Infrastructure and Support
endorsing the following statement: "The
Faculty Senate recognizes that library
resources and services are crucial to our
academic mission. However, our libraries
have been documented as deficient when
compared to top ten universities with
which the University of Florida aims to
compete. Therefore, the Faculty Senate
asks the Administration and the Board of
Trustees to formulate a policy to improve
university libraries to meet the diverse
and complex needs of 21st century
teaching and research and to report back
within one year regarding resources and
strategies to enable the libraries to achieve
this goal."

What is the background behind
the Senate's decision to endorse
this statement?

For many years the University of
Florida Libraries have dealt with stagnant
budgets, including a serious lack of
sufficient dollars for "continuations,' a
funding category that includes journals
so vital to all academic disciplines. For
example, journal prices increased 273%
between 1986 and 2004. Total University
of Florida Libraries materials funding
(including Health Science Center, Legal
Information Center, Division of Sponsored
Research and Endowment funds), ranged
from 5.6 million dollars to 11.9 million
dollars over the last 11 years, for an
average of 9.7 million dollars per year.
In comparison, library funding at the
University of Michigan ranged from 10.7
million dollars to 19.3 million dollars, for
an average of 16.9 million dollars per year
during the same period. Note that the best
year (2001) for University of Florida was
only 1.2 million dollars higher than the

worst year (1994) for the University of
According to statistics for selected
top public research universities from
Association of Research Libraries (ARL)
2002-2003 data, the University of Florida
is the third largest university in the
country in number of total student FTE,
fourth largest in number of Ph.D. fields
offered and second largest in number of
graduate students enrolled. However, UF's
budget for library materials for teaching
and research is lowest among the selected
public research universities. The sidebar
charts detail how the University of Florida
Libraries compare with three of these large
public research universities. Please note
that although the University of Florida is
highest in Ph.D. fields offered, it is second
lowest in library as percent of university
budget expenditure, and lowest in volumes
held per Ph.D. field and total volumes
held. Moreover, it has the worst faculty to
librarian ratio of the universities included.
The University Libraries Committee,
a standing committee of the University
Faculty Senate, working with the Council
on Academic Infrastructure and Support,
recognized that any goal of moving the
University of Florida into the ranks of
the best of public research universities in
the country must include a serious and
sustained effort on the part of the entire
university community to increase and,
equally important, stabilize funding for
research and teaching materials available
to faculty and students. The statement
endorsed by the Senate was an initial
step in this effort.Along with the Senate,
the faculty awaits the response of the
university administration to this directive.
