For Friends of the George A. Smathers Libraries, University of Florida Fall 2012 Whats Inside Page 2 Libraries collections open house Page 3 Grant award for librarymuseum collaborationPage 11 Because of You; ExhibitsPages 4-8 Honor Roll of donorsPage 12 Deans Message Melvyn and Joan New donate personal rare book collectionMelvyn and Joan New have donated a portion of their personal collection of books to the University of Florida George A. Smathers Libraries Department of Special and Area Studies Collections, 544 individual titles in 944 volumes. e collection is centered on Professor News area of specialization, eighteenth-century English literature, and most signicantly on Laurence Sterne (1713-1768) and his writings, but there are also titles from the seventeenth century to the present. e collection was evaluated at close to $200,000. Its most valuable item, perhaps, is the 9-volume set of Sternes most famous work, e Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy (17601767), with the rare concealed second editions of volumes 7-8; and another 9-volume set, with a concealed second edition of volume 4. ere are also two rst editions of Sternes second great ction, A Sentimental Journey (1768), including a copy of the rare large-paper edition designed for subscribers, and rst editions of all seven volumes of his Sermons (1760-1769). e real strength of the collection, however, is in its multiple editions of these works, providing an important bibliographical history from the eighteenth century through numerous reprintings into the modern era. Hence there are more than 50 dierent editions of Sentimental Journey, alone, many nely illustrated. ere are also translations of Sternes works into French, German, Russian, Italian, Dutch, Spanish and Japanese. When the scholarly journal, Eighteenth-Century Intelligencer, reported this donation to the profession, it remarked that it constitutes the most valuable holdings for the study of Sterne west of Shandy Hall in Coxwold, Yorkshire (Sternes Page 9 Parents Library Endowment; student assistant scholarship winner Page 10 Grant awards received for Archive of Haitian Religion and Culture; Digitization of Florida Jewish newspapers (Continued on page 2)The rare 1760-1767 edition of The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman, (London). Nine volumes bound into four in original full leather bindings with the spines rebacked in modern calf leather. As noted by Professor New, they are an unusual combination of signed (and unsigned) first and second editions.Mobile ApplicationsThe Libraries website displays in a wide range of web-enabled and smart phone browsers.

2 Chapter One last home, now a National Trust site) and east of the ECCO (EighteenthCentury Collections Online). Italo Calvino has referred to Tristram Shandy as the undoubted progenitor of all avant-garde novels of our century. omas Mann has suggested the inuence of the work on his great Joseph saga, and James Joyce has paid tribute to Sterne in explaining the origins of his inexplicable Finnegans Wake Goethe and Nietzsche both thought of him as the primary genius of English ction, and more recently Salman Rushdie in Midnights Children, Juan Goytisolo in Juan the Landless and Carlos Fuentes in Christopher Unborn have all written major ctions of national identity with acknowledgements to Sternes inuence. It is no accident that Virginia Woolf herself edited A Sentimental Journey and was one of the rst to recognize in Sternes writing what she wanted to achieve in her own highly stylized prose. Perhaps no other writer of eighteenth-century ction has produced so stellar a progeny. e University Presses of Florida has published eight volumes of Professor News Works of Laurence Sterne, edited by himself and colleagues from England, Canada, and the Netherlands; a ninth and nal volume, e Miscellanies is in progress. e work of more than thirty-ve years, the Sterne edition lies behind the collection now given to the Libraries, in that the books were gathered with an eye toward duplicating the books in Sternes own library, not only classics like Rabelais and Cervantes, Burton and Montaigne, but a good many esoteric titles of works that he wove into his own writings. In addition, in support of the edition of his forty-ve surviving sermons, there are many theological works, adding to the ne collection already in the Harold and Mary Jean Hanson Rare Book Collection, thanks to the eorts of Professor Aubrey Williams and Professor New, who spent many hours of their careers at UF combing through rare book catalogues and ordering books for the Libraries. In those years, professors indeed ordered books; English literature of the Renaissance and eighteenth century was taught by the English department; and the idea of preserving and passing on the great works of our literary heritage was believed to be our primary mission in the University. By housing their collection with the University of Floridas Department of Special and Area Studies Collections, the New family hopes it will be there when students once again discover that Shakespeare and Sterne are more valuable to their lives and educations than Spiderman.New (Continued from page 1) Libraries hold open house An open house was held on Friday, October 5 in the Smathers Library Grand Reading Room to showcase rare and unique items from the Department of Special and Area Studies Collections as well from other select collections in the Libraries. Department curators from the Harold and Mary Jean Hanson Rare Book Collection, P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History, Baldwin Library of Historical Childrens Literature, Popular Culture, Archives & Manuscripts (University Archives,Architecture Archives, political papers, etc.), Latin American, Asian, African and Judaica collections were on hand to show and discuss the materials with attendees. Also present were representatives of the Map & Imagery Library, Government Documents collection, the Health Science Center Library and the Panama Canal Museum Collection. Attendees included friends of the libraries and the general public. e Grand Reading Room recently underwent a renovation with the removal of a temporary wall that had blocked o the processing area, the installation of display cabinetry and the renishing of the long tables previously used for processing materials, thus increasing the available space for researchers.


Chapter One 3 e George A. Smathers Libraries have been awarded $477,312 in National Leadership grant funding from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) with a matching amount of $541,976 provided jointly by the University of Florida and the Libraries. e award was one of three in Florida and the fourth largest nationally out of 52 awards granted from 211 applications. Dean of University Libraries and principal investigator (PI) Judith C. Russell along with co-PI, Associate Dean for Technology and Support Services Rachel Schipper, will lead the project implementation. e project was conceived as the result of the transfer of materials from the Panama Canal Museum to the Libraries when the museum closed in March 2012. e grant award will enable the Libraries to evaluate, preserve and integrate items from the former Panama Canal Museum. e transfer of over 20,000 objects, photos, books and maps was completed in July and the items will undergo conservation and select digitization. ey will be accessible to scholars and other visitors to the Libraries and have the opportunity to be viewed in national/international exhibitions. e Libraries, along with collaborative partners, will lead a multiinstitutional centennial celebration of the opening of the Panama Canal in 2014-2015 to promote public understanding of the achievement and the heritage resources available for scholarly, educational and civic purposes. We are so grateful to the founders and patrons of the Panama Canal Museum for entrusting us with this collection and partnering with us to preserve it and make it accessible, said Judith Russell. ere is a lot of work to do, and the grant provides additional resources to help us make the integration successful and the centennial celebration outstanding. Congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard and so well to make this award possible, she added. Formal partners include the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration and UF partners, the Florida Museum of Natural History and the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art. Other UF partners include the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, Center for Latin American Studies, Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere, College of Business, College of Fine Arts, College of Engineering, Health Science Center and Legal Information Center, as well as venue support for cultural events from the Phillips Performing Arts Center. Additional nonUF collaborating institutions are the Museum of Science and Industry (Tampa), Nationaal Baggermuseum in Sliedrecht (the Netherlands), the Natural History Museum of San Diego, Museo del Canal Interocenico de Panam, the Panama Canal Society and the Association of Southeast Research Libraries. e IMLS grant is signicant not only for its high monetary value, but also because it validates the prolonged eorts of the Panama Canal Museum and the University of Florida to preserve an important piece of United States and Panamian history and provides a model for the nation on how small museums and libraries can be integrated into larger institutions, said Joseph J. Wood, former president of the Panama Canal Museum. Everyone who has participated in the establishment and growth of the Museum since 1998 is extremely gratied that our mutual eorts with the University of Florida will allow for the continued growth and preservation of the Museums collection, one that will remain as a long-lasting tribute to all the men and women of all nationalities who participated in the construction, operation, defense and expansion of the Panama Canal, added Wood. e Smathers Libraries were also acknowledged for this unique library-museum collaboration on September 14 with the 2012 Innovation Award from the Northeast Florida Library Information Network (NEFLIN). e award recognizes an innovative program or service that has demonstrated impact on the community a NEFLIN library serves.

Chapter One 9 e Parents Library Endowment Fund is a general library endowment intended for the Libraries greatest needs, and the endowment fullls that goal beautifully. e intent each year is to use funds generated by the endowment for items that directly or indirectly benet students. ere were a variety of small purchases in the past year for materials and supplies for programming and exhibits, but two major initiatives were directed at the students immediate needs. e rst major purchase was for science textbooks to put on course reserve at the Marston Science Library (MSL). Each semester MSL purchases multiple copies of several dozen science textbooks that are used by hundreds of students. Library funding is available for some of these purchases, but is insucient, so an infusion from the Parents Library Endowment Fund allows them to serve more students. e circulation statistics reveal the hundreds of uses of these textbooks as does the need to replace them each year, as they literally fall apart from use. ese textbooks are expensive and unwieldy, so some students use the ones at the library between classes and leave their copy in their dorm room. Others may use the library copy rather than purchasing a textbook that costs two or three hundred dollars. In either case the need is great, and the additional funding is appreciated. In fall 2011 Library West (LW) received a technology grant to purchase netbooks to circulate to students. ese replaced laptops that had been circulating for several years and were completely worn out. e move to netbooks was well received in LW, but MSL was still limping along checking out laptops that were overdue to be retired. e Parents Library Endowment Fund was used to purchase 32 netbooks and a charging station for the students who use MSL. e netbook program has been very successful in both libraries and would not have been realized at MSL without this funding. e Libraries take seriously the mission to support the teaching and learning of the University of Florida, and to respond to student needs in each library. e Parents Library Endowment Fund is an excellent resource to help students be successful in their academic careers. ank you to all who contribute to the fund, and welcome to anyone who would like to join this eort.Parents Library Endowment Fund supports studentsby Diane Bruxvoort Senior Associate Dean Students using multimedia computers in Library WestLibrary student assistant scholarship winner Daphney Degand was awarded the fall 2012 James and Leslie Rutherford Library Student Assistant Scholarship essay competition.

10 Chapter One e Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica, in partnership with the Jewish Museum of Florida and three Florida county public libraries systems, (Miami-Dade County, Broward County and Palm Beach County), will broaden access to the Florida Digital Newspaper Library (FDNL) through an award of $21,753 from Library Services and Technology Act program funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Florida Department of State, Division of Library and Information Services. e FDNL ( is a key resource for research, comprising 730 Florida newspaper titles and over one million pages of information which attract more than one million online views each month. Project funds will support the conversion of 127 reels of e Jewish Floridian from microlm to digital format and these will become accessible through the FDNL hosted by the University of Florida Digital Collections. e Jewish Floridian is Floridas rst ethnic newspaper of note and is of great interest to a broad range of researchers, historians and writers who want to learn more about the cultural, social, historical and political life of Floridas Jewish population throughout the 20th century in order to build a more comprehensive picture of Florida history. To date, no comprehensive history of the Jewish community of Florida has been written; yet this comparatively small section of the general population has made a signicant impact on the state. Revealing the content of e Jewish Floridian (1924 1990) will contribute signicantly to the eort of uncovering its hidden historical impact. Led by Rebecca Jeerson, the project will use e Jewish Floridian online collection to establish a training program targeted for the partner institutions and their communities and for the citizens of Florida in general. e Florida Digital Newspaper Project was the only proposal in Florida to receive funding within the Technology category for the 2012-13 grant period.Grant Award supports online access to The Jewish Floridian newspapersby Rebecca Jefferson Curator, Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica @ your library Project team for the Archive of Haitian Religion and Culture: Laurie Taylor, digital humanities librarian; Richard Freeman, assistant librarian anthropology subject specialist; Bess de Farber, Smathers Libraries grants manager; Sophia Acord, associate director, Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere; and Ben Hebblethwaite, professor of Haitian Creole and French, Department of Languages, Literatures and Project team for the Archive of Haitian Religion and Culture: Laurie Taylor, digital humanities librarian; Richard Freeman, assistant librarian anthropology subject specialist; Bess de Farber, Smathers Libraries grants manager; Sophia Acord, associate director, Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere; and Ben Hebblethwaite, professor of Haitian Creole and French, Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures.Languages, Literatures and Cultures Department and the Libraries receive $240,804 grant award Online resource will create an Archive of Haitian Religion and Culture e University of Florida and Duke University researchers and librarians have spearheaded a collaborative partnership project which has been awarded $240,804 from the National Endowment for the Humanities. is is the second largest award in Florida (and one of only ve major grants awarded in the state) and one of 244 awarded nationally this year. e Archive of Haitian Religion and Culture: Collaborative Research and Scholarship on Haiti and the Haitian Diaspora grant, led by project director Benjamin Hebblethwaite (UF) and co-director Laurent Dubois (Duke) will document a central Haitian and Haitian-American spiritual tradition, the Vodou religion. It will gather video and print resoruces and disseminate them via an open access digital library hosted within the existing Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) Partnering with the researchers are the George A. Smathers Libraries, which hosts the dLOC. In addition to dLOCs 29 international partners, the Archive of Haitian Religion and Culture includes collaboration from researchers at Duke, University of Notre Dame, the Schrijversvakschool in the Netherlands, the Universit des Antilles et de la Guyane, and City Lore. UFs Dr. Benjamin Hebblethwaite is the author of Vodou songs in Haitian Creole and English.

e libraries continue to be productive and evolving as ever to match the needs of students, faculty, sta and researchers. is year has held many highlights for new services and materials that are important to our users. Here are just a few: 24-hr student access en Aer funding a pilot semester last spring to provide 24-hour student access Monday through ursday to Library West, Student Government has agreed to continue the funding for three additional years during the fall and spring semesters. e overnight hours have proven to be very popular with students with oen as many as 350 in the building between 2:00 and 3:00 a.m. Endowed faculty position Drs. Martin and Sandra Fackler established the rst endowed library faculty position in the University of Florida library system for the director of the Health Science Center Libraries. is is also the rst endowed faculty position in an academic health science or medical library in Florida. Shared collection e University of Florida and the University of Miami have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to create the Collaborative Academic Library Collection, a shared collection that will be housed in Gainesville for long-term preservation, retention and access to low use library materials. An interim o-campus storage facility has been leased to store materials until the Florida Academic Repository high density facility is built which will integrate this collection with other low-use print materials from libraries in the State University System. Expanded digital access Important and oen unique materials from the Libraries and partner institutions were added at the rate of 869,439 pages last year to the UF Digital Collection. Usage views for the scal year exceeded 38 million. Hosting digital copies of this content improves access for UF faculty and students and for scholars worldwide. Patron-driven e-book acquisitions We initiated a bilateral program with the Florida State University Libraries for the patron-driven acquisitions of e-books. e initiative began in December 2011 and through July 2012 allowed 2,115 uses of e-book content and resulted in the purchase of 185 e-books, which became permanently available to faculty and students from both universities. Both libraries are beneting via combined funding, reduced duplication of e-book titles purchased, and increased content from thousands of e-book records now available to all users at UF and FSU. Grand Reading Room renovations e Special and Area Studies Collections Grand Reading Room in Smathers Library has undergone renovations (see Libraries Open House article on page 2). An additional large display cabinet has been built in room 1A of Smathers Library, sponsored by the Panama Canal Museum Collection and it will house a rotating exhibition of materials from the collection. We will keep you updated in the coming year on our newest projects and programs. As always, your questions and comments are welcomed. Please contact me at (352) 273-2505 or Judith C.
