Welcome to the fall semester! The
University of Florida Libraries are
here to assist you with your research
and course materials as we serve every
faculty member and student at the
university, on and off-campus, in every
discipline that is taught and every field
in which we do research. Increasingly
this is done through collaboration and
consortial licensing with other Florida

To meet the high demand and support
the university's students, faculty and
staff, UF Libraries have formed the
largest information resource system
in the state of Florida with 5.6 million
print volumes, 7.9 million microfilms,
453,000 e-books, 158,695 full-text
electronic journals and 1,162 electronic

I often hear that libraries are less
important now that "everything" is
online. Nothing could be farther from
the truth. It is true that we now spend
over 70% of our materials budget
acquiring online resources e-books,
e-journals, and databases so the
information is available to our faculty,
staff and students 24 hours a day,
whether or not the libraries are open.
But there is still significant demand
for print materials and heavy traffic
in our libraries. Last year we had over
three million visitors. Attendance has
been growing, not declining.

As part of our move to more and more
electronic access, particularly to the
scholarship from our own faculty and
researchers, the University of Florida is
developing an open access policy that

will be presented to
the Faculty Senate
for approval this fall.

Open Access (OA)
is freely available,
permanent, web-
based access
to scholarly
publications. OA

is based on the Libraries
principle that
research should be readily available
immediately after publication to
anyone with an Internet connection.
It is improving the way scholarly
information is shared and preserved.

The University of Florida has
established an Open Access Publishing
(UFOAP) Fund to support the goal
of making UF research findings
immediately, freely and globally
available. When money is not available
from other sources, the fund will
assist UF authors by paying reasonable
article processing fees for publishing in
open access journals and for a portion
of paid access fees charged by other
publishers. The fund is administered
by the libraries. Please see the article
on page 3 for details and visit the web
site at http://www.uflib.ufl.eduloa.

Let us know how we can better serve
you. We look forward to the challenge
of improving library services for UF's
academic programs. Please contact me
with your comments at

Faculty time is at a premium with
increased class size with limited
assistance. Instructors can find some
relief by utilizing online technology
coupled with electronic library
resources to teach research and critical
thinking skills while also engaging
students and providing them with
basic information literacy skills.

TLhe Provost e-learning Initiative
(http://www. at.ufl. edu/provo stinitiative/)
courses have been a pilot program to
integrate online library content and
media tools into online classes, and can
serve as a model for other courses with
an online presence.

Course guides
Library subject specialists develop
course web sites for specific classes by
collaborating with teaching faculty.
TLhese course guides (e.g., http://guides. can include readings and
virtual bookshelves, access to vetted
web sites and databases, assignments
and other resources the librarian is able
to connect to course content. Library
resources can be integrated with the
e-learning materials of any course.
TLhese web guides can:
* Provide students with a starting
point for ideas and research
* Give customized information for
assignments for more efficient use of
student time
* Be available to students 24/7
* Require very little time on the part of
the faculty
* Be available to faculty at no cost

Media tools
Media equipment such as video
cameras can be useful for blended
courses with "performance" aspects
(e.g., monologue or dance). Students
in a recent Provost-funded course

captured performances with digital
video cameras. With these resources:
* Student time is used efficiently with
videos they create on their own
* Comfort level for students improves
when using video that can be re-shot
to correct mistakes
* Students can critique their own work
and the work of others

Flip Mino cameras are available for
three-day checkout from several
libraries on campus (http://www
flipyideocameras.html). Students can
upload video to YouTube or Vimeo for
their groups and instructors to view.

Electronic resources

Subject specialists can recommend
databases, readings and other resources
for student research and assignments.
For example, the digital image library
ARTstor was used by students to
analyze famous works and create
their own virtual exhibits of primary
materials. Such resources can increase
student interest in the assignment
and reduce reliance upon expensive
publisher materials.

Library resources can easily be added
to one assignment or an entire course
to help supplement the teaching and
learning process. To find out more,
faculty can contact their subject
specialist (
staffdir/Subj ectSp ecialist. aspx).

Spanish archivists
visit U F Li bra ries

As part of a University of Florida
Faculty Enhancement Opportunity
award to further cooperation between
the libraries' Department of Special
& Area Studies Collections and
colleagues in Spanish institutions, two
distinguished archivists from Spain
spent the week of May 22 through May
29 on campus meeting with Smathers
Libraries' deans, directors and others.
Focus was on possible digital grant
projects, exchanges of students, faculty
and research.

TLhese visits were the second part
of a three-pronged effort. In July
2009 UF Latin American Collection
Head Librarian Richard Phillips
visited several institutions in Spain
to meet key contacts and re-initiate
collaboration, and the Latin American
Collection Operations Librarian Paul
Losch visited Spain in May to further
institutional relations.

University of Florida's Open Access Publishing (UFOAP) Fund
Recognizing the growing global need and support for open access to research
findings, the University of Florida Libraries in cooperation with the Provost's Office
has created an Open Access Publishing Fund pilot project to assist UF authors.
By funding reasonable article processing fees for open access journals ($3,000 limit)
and a portion of paid-access fees charged by commercial publishers to provide open
access ($1,500 limit), this fund will facilitate free and enduring access to
UF's research.

UFOAP funds are intended to support open access to research articles where
publication fees are not available through grant funding. In order to encourage
inclusion of publication fees in future grant applications, articles resulting from
funded grants that allow for budgeting of article processing fees are excluded unless
the grant application was submitted prior to the establishment of the UFOAP. Any
UF faculty, post-doctoral researcher, staff member or student author may request
up to $3,000 per year to pay for article-processing fees for peer-reviewed research
articles. Payments will be made directly to the publisher upon application and
invoice submittal. Specific funding criteria are given in the fund guidelines, along
with the application, viewable at www.uflib.ufl.eduloa.

Institutional Repository
Requestors receiving funding through this project are expected to submit a post-
review, final draft of the article to UF's institutional repository, IR@UF, (http://www. at the time of funding. The IR@UF is the digital archive for the
intellectual output of the University of Florida community, with research, news,
outreach and educational materials.

The University of Florida Libraries established and supports the IR@UF in order
to offer a central location for the collection, preservation and dissemination of
scholarly, research, and creative production alongside historical materials from the
University of Florida on the history, nature and culture of the university.

The effectiveness of this pilot project will be reviewed at the end of 18 months.

Open Access Week 2010
The libraries will host "Open Access Wi~eek" on October 18-22, 2010.

Libraries' lost item replacement policy

To ensure that items owned by the libraries are available to patrons, the George
A. Smathers Libraries attempts to quickly replace each item lost by patrons with
an exact copy, an updated edition of the title or a similar title. The libraries do
not refund replacement costs for items that are returned after replacement
copies are ordered and overdue fines related to lost items are not refundable if
the book is subsequently returned.
Specific fines and fees are delineated at
http ://www ufl ib.ufl. edu/p s/ Circ/lo st. htm.

Course reserves

During times of shrinking departmental and university budgets, Electronic
Reserves can offer faculty a cost-effective alternative to course packets and
other expensive course materials. Utilizing the ARES reserve system, faculty
can place a variety of materials for courses online for students to access. These
materials include hard copy books, DVDs and videos, as well as scanned
chapters of books and links to electronic journal articles. The only limitation
placed on reserve materials is that all electronic chapters must comply with
current copyright policies, which is the lesser of one chapter or ten percent of a
book. Faculty are encouraged to utilize course reserves to provide students with
quick and easy access to materials.

Course reserves features a new component for the fall semester. Electronic
Reserves is now offering streaming video for selected film-studies courses.
Streaming video allows students to access material at their leisure. If faculty
members think their course might be a candidate for streaming video, please
contact the reserves department at (352) 273-50

To learn more about Electronic Reserves, faculty can sign up for training on the
following dates and times. No registration is required.

Inter libra ry loan material is

now a rrive even faster

The University of Florida Libraries is now a member of RapidlLL, a unique
interlibrary resource sharing system for journal articles which includes
174 libraries. The software that runs RapidlLL was designed specifically for
resource sharing, including automatic processing, routing and load leveling.
Wi~ith the implementation of RapidlLL, patrons experience faster interlibrary
loan service. Since members agree to provide a 24-hour turnaround, patrons
can expect to receive an article with 24-48 hours after the request is made.

The RapidlLL database is unmatched in depth of indexing. Most ILL databases
index only to the journal title level, but RapidlLL matches to the year level.
Holdings are updated on a six-month cycle. To learn more about RapidlLL,
please take a look at the guide to see which requests can qualify for RAPID

Exhibition of Artists' Books from the First Annual Juried
Student Book Arts Competition at the UF Libraries
September 1 -October 1, 2010
Opening Reception September 8, 10:00 a.m. noon

What are artists' books? TLhe most important element in
defining an artists' book probably stems from a book's
motivation. TLhe intent (or motivation) of an artists' book is
the expression of an artistic vision as opposed to a literary or
informational purpose; they are themselves a form of art.

ARTBOUND features contemporary works by students
making books in book arts and/or fine arts programs across
the United States. TLhe exhibited works have been selected
by jurors from UF Libraries and the School of Art and
Art History. TLhese artists' books will become part of the

permanent collection at TLhe University of Florida George A.
Smathers Libraries. TLhe jurors selected between 30 and 40
high quality, original handmade artists' books created using
a variety of media, for example: letterpress printing, intaglio,
inkjet, screen printing, paint, and collage.

A companion exhibit will be in the display cases inside the
Special Collections Research Room on the 2nd floor of
Smathers Library. POP: Books as Exploration of Design,
Math & Text, created by design students at St. Petersburg
College's Department of Fine and Applied Arts.

The Art of the Book: Binding, IIlustration, Typography
October 8 December 17, 2010

TLhis exhibit will focus on the artistic aspects of a book rather
than the text. Display cases will feature leather tooling of
covers and the evolution of 19th century publishers' book
bindings, examples of fore-edge painting, wood blocks and
wood cut illustrations, early and fine press printing, and
typography styles.

Digital Military Newspaper Library

at the University of Florida Libraries

A Digital Military Newspaper Library has been
established in the Smathers Digital Library Center. 9l b
The Digital Military Newspaper Library is a project
to provide global access and long-term preservation'
for contemporary and historic military newspapers.
These newspapers cover important historical data and .
information useful to students, researchers, veterans,
military families and other interested parties.

Newspapers sponsored by the various branches of the armed forces focus
exclusively on military issues and provide a first-hand perspective of soldiers and
their families in peacetime and wartime circumstances that other media outlets
do not. Special noteworthy features include comics for the military audience,
headlines announcing new events in Wi~orld Wi~ar II and coverage of the integration
of women into the military. The Digital Military Newspaper Library has made these
historic newspapers freely accessible online in a comprehensive collection of Florida
military newspapers.

These newspapers represent Naval and Air Force bases from many geographical
regions around the state of Florida and include the Kennedy Space Center, a
submarine base at King's Bay, Georgia, the Panama Canal Zone and two newspapers
in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

These newspapers can be accessed at Other
related UF digital collections include the Korean Wi~ar Oral History Collection,
Vietnam Wi~ar Veterans Oral History Collection and Wi~orld Wi~ar II Oral History
Collection from the University of Florida Libraries' Samuel Proctor Oral History
Program, and can be accessed at http://ufdcwebl

'he Marston Science Library's display
room will evolve into a coral reef in
April 2011.

Librarians will curate a satellite of the
worldwide Hyperbolic Crochet Coral
Reef proj ect created by Margaret and
Christine Wi~ertheim of the Institute
for Figuring ( in
Los Angeles. 'he project combines
mathematical awareness, art practice
and environmental awareness, and
will involve collaboration from several
areas on campus.

By showcasing the science
communication aspect of the
project, the Smathers Libraries
plan to engage the interest of the
academic community, addressing the
mathematical nature of these natural
structures and providing a forum for
presentations and discussion. As a
community art project, the Coral Reef
provides an approach to a wide array
of people of all ages, from school
children to retirees, to teach or remind
them ofa handcraft, engage their
creativity and engender awareness of
the world's oceans.



~he libraries will sponsor a coordin-
ating speaker series throughout the
year. ~he series will focus first on
the mathematical aspects to spark
interest in crocheting, and will feature
environmental topics while the exhibit
is displayed.

Contributions of crocheted corals,
yarn, hooks and other supplies, as
well as funding for atoll construction,
are appreciated. Once the single

crochet stitch is mastered, hyperbolic
planes and pseudospheres can be
created with ease!
