Science librarians receive the libraries'

first National Science Foundation award:

Gaming Against Plagiarism

The National Science Foundation
Ethics and Education in Science
and Engineering award to the UF
Libraries will fund $298,660 to
develop Gaming Against Plagiarism
(GAP), an online, self-directed,
interactive game. GAP engages science,
tlin. ,!. 1 ..;- engineering and math
graduate students in a role-adopting
environment to identify and avoid
plagiarism within their academic
and professional careers. Uniquely
designed, tested and evaluated through
a reiterative development process by
recognized experts in graduate science
education, gaming, academic integrity,
intellectual property rights and
educational digital media production,
GAP will employ strategies to affect
behaviors that have been identified as
influencing student ethical choices.
These include peer standards,
institutional norms, plagiarism and
differing cultural practices. The project
began September 1, 2010 and will end
August 30, 2012.

GAP is being developed through
a unique collaboration between
Marston Science Library librarians and
investigators Michelle Leonard (lead),
Amy Buhler and Margeaux Johnson,
with the Digital Worlds Institute
faculty and staff, led by investigator
and director James Oliverio and games
expert Ben De Vane, Ph.D., and with the
I-cubed Program (Innovation through
Institutional Integration) Graduate
Student Advisory Council, represented
by investigator Douglas Levey, Ph.D.
Seven university engineering faculty
will test the game with students at
Purdue, Virginia Commonwealth,
University of Houston, Loyola
Marymount, Oakland, Rowan and
the University of Central Florida. The
two outside consultants on the project
are Donald McCabe, Ph.D. (Rutgers),
expert in academic cheating, and Rick
Ferdig, Ph.D. (Kent State), expert in
game pedagogy.

Bess de Farber, Grants Manager

The Elegance of Science contest is open to
current faculty, students, staff and alumni
of the University of Florida. Entries must be
two-dimensional images produced in the
course of research or incorporating tools
and concepts from science. Submission
deadline is January 28, 2011. Complete

Guides @ UF:

ti icin. ,1. '. and medicine, users will find customized multimedia guides designed
to help identify and use the best resources for writing papers, completing class
assignments, conducting world class research and browsing the modern academic
library that features tens of thousands of online journals, books and research
databases that complement the traditional print, microform and digital collections
that have been building for more than a hundred years.

Bob Graham

Senate Collection

processing begins

Processing of the Bob Graham Senate
Collection began on November 1
when Debra Davendonis-Todd arrived
to take on the task of arranging
and describing 777 cubic feet of
material from Graham's lengthy
career. Davendonis-Todd comes to
UF from the South Carolina Political
Collections at USC where she also
received her MLS. Before taking the
position, Davendonis-Todd researched
Graham's career and had this to say: "I
am impressed with Senator Graham's
service to the people of Florida and
excited to dive into his uniquely
detailed collection."

In addition to his Senate records,
the collection contains 168 (and
growing) boxes of his personal
pocket notebooks, over 250 videos
and an undetermined number of
photographs. Historian Steve Noll
gave his assessment and had this to
say about the collection's importance:
"Anyone attempting to come to grips
with the emergence of Florida as a
key component (arguably THE key
component) of the Sunbelt phenome-
non will certainly benefit from an
examination of the materials held in
this archive."

Unique to this collection are the
records and memorabilia from
Graham's workdays. The workdays
began during his 1978 gubernatorial
campaign when he engaged in over
100 different jobs. Afterwards, Graham
continued the workdays in largely
blue collar venues such as shipyards,
post offices and fast food restaurants.
As Noll notes, "Graham viewed the
workdays as an important means of
connecting to his constituency."

Processing is estimated to take two
years. When completed, the Graham
Senate Collection will add to the
libraries' already first-rate collection of
political papers.

schS ola rly resource s and r c s ices

Diane Bruxvoort recently joined the
Smathers Libraries as the associate
dean for scholarly resources and
research services.

For the past ten years she was at the
University of Houston Libraries where
she served as the associate dean for
collection services since 2008. While
at Houston she was also the assistant
dean for collection services and head
of access services.

Bruxvoort has a master of library
and information science degree from
the University of Texas at Austin
and earned a bachelor's degree from
Northwestern College, graduating
summa cum laude.

In her position as associate dean
Bruxvoort will ensure effective and
responsive collections and service in
support of the university's teaching and
research programs. One of her goals
is to organize and maintain a program
of regular contact with appropriate
academic faculty and staff. She will

represent the libraries in local, state,
regional and national organizations
and build upon the libraries' leadership
role within the campus community.

She is responsible for the administra-
tion of the scholarly resources and
research services of the Smathers
Libraries, exclusive of the Health
Science Center Libraries. She will
exercise direct leadership in the
humanities and social sciences, sciences,
special and area studies, government
documents and branch libraries for
architecture and fine arts, education,
journalism and music.

"Throughout my twenty-seven year
career my goal has been to provide
timely and comprehensive access to
information and resources for the
students, faculty and staff served
by my library. This may come
through a building project, collection
development, a new website, or
through yet another venue that I'll
discover here at UE I'm excited to

join this
dedicated and
library faculty m r
in serving
the UF

In 2009
the "Dean's
Standard Bearer Award for External
Service for the University of Houston
Libraries." She was awarded the
Outstanding Service Award for
"Outstanding Support for Students
with Disabilities" in 2004 from the
University of Houston. In 2003 the
libraries honored her with the "Dean's
Torch Bearer Award for Service to
the UH Libraries" and the "Group
Trailblazer Award for Leading
Organizational Change."

named basic sciences
librarian at the Health
Science Center Library

Rolando Garcia-
Milifn has joined
the Health Science -
Center Library's -
biomedical health
and information
services department
as the new basic
sciences Librarian. He provides
specialized assistance in anatomy
and cell biology, biochemistry and
molecular biology and ly i. .!. .y and
functional genomics. Prior to joining
UF, Rolando worked in the catalog

HSCL House Calls
Health Science Center librarians have
begun a new "House Calls" service.
Liaisons now visit faculty in their
office, clinic or lab for private one-
on-one consultations on a variety of
topics, including search techniques,
bibliographic reference management,
relevant mobile device applications,
useful productivity tools, statistics and
data sources, databases and journals
and consumer health resources.

Open Access Week promoted new

research initiatives on campus

The UF Libraries joined the global
event, Open Access Week, now in its
fourth year, on October 20-22, 2010.
Events were held to promote Open
Access as a new option in scholarship
and research.

Open Access Week was an opportunity
for the academic and research
community to continue to learn
about the potential benefits of Open

Mark McLellan, dean for research at
IFAS, gave the keynote presentation

Access, to share what they've learned
with colleagues, and to help inspire
wider participation in helping to make
Open Access a more viable alternative
to often expensive journals and
conference proceedings.

"Open Access" to information the
free, immediate, online access to the
results of scholarly research, and the
right to use and re-use those results as
needed has the power to transform
the way research and scientific inquiry
are conducted. It has direct and
widespread implications for academia,
medicine, science, industry and for
society as a whole.

Dean of University Libraries Judith
Russell opened up an afternoon of
presentations and panel discussions
on October 20 with "Open Access and
New Initiatives on the UF Campus." She
was followed by IFAS Dean for Research
Mark McLellan, who gave the keynote
presentation "Open Access and Public
Access to Research: It's our Mission."
