GARY CORNWELL APPOINTED TO DEPOSITORY LIBRARY
Last month, Gary Cornwell, Associate University Librarian in the Documents
Department, accepted the invitation from Robert W. Houk, the Public Printer
of the United States, to become a member of the Depository Library Council.
The Depository Library Council to the Public Printer is a 15-member group of
librarians appointed by the Public Printer to provide advice and practical as-
sistance to the staff of the Government Printing Office. The Council operates
under a charter and by-laws adopted in 1975 and holds open meetings, an-
nounced in the Federal Register, twice a year. Each year five new members
are appointed to serve for a period of three years.
Gary Cornwell's knowledge of Federal documents and in particular, GPO bib-
liographic records, will be an important asset for the Council. Also helpful is
Gary's background as a member and currently the chair of the GODORT
(ALA's Government Documents Round Table) Cataloging Committee. As UF
is one of the few libraries which has loaded GPO's cataloging records into its
online database, Gary will be able to articulate their impact on depository li-
braries. Gary is extremely knowledgeable in the area of CD-ROM format, the
format of distribution for 90 percent of the 1990 Census, and he will be able to
provide valuable input on this issue.
In his letter acknowledging Gary's acceptance of the appointment, Mr. Houk
stated that Gary is "indeed respected as an important and accomplished rep-
resentative of the constituency" he serves. The Documents Department is
confident that Gary will make many significant contributions to the Council
and is proud that his accomplishments are bringing him the recognition he so
In this issue we continue our series on library organizations.
THE ASSOCIATION OF JEWISH LIBRARIES (AJL)
The association's primary mission is to address the specialized interests and
needs of the Judaica librarian in diverse library settings including major re-

membership, numbering over 850, is broadly based, drawing its member-
ship from the United States, Canada, Israel, several European countries, Ar-
gentina, Mexico, Australia, and Hong Kong.
The majority of the activities of the association take place within a committee
structure. There are presently 21 standing committees including Archives,
Chapter Relations, Duplicate Book Exchange, Job Clearinghouse, Library Ed-
ucation, Membership Recruitment, President's Council, Recruitment to the
Judaica Library Profession, Scholarship, Talent Bank, and Volunteers. Addi-
tional Committees (e.g., Manuscript, Sydney Taylor Children's Book
Awards, Reference Book Award) function under the sponsorship of the asso-
ciation's two divisions, the Research and Special Library Division and the
Synagogue, School and Center Library Library Division.
Bob Singerman, Head of UFs Price Library of Judaica, served as President of
the Research and Special Library Division--one of the two divisions of
AJL-in 1989, a busy year for Bob. In addition to the many duties associ-
ated with heading an AJL Division, he worked on his publication, Judaica
Americana to 1900, which he discussed at the 24th annual AJL conference.
The First International Judaica Librarians Conference was held July 2-6,1990
in Jerusalem, Israel, in conjunction with the 25th anniversary meeting of the
AJL. In preparation for the association's 25th anniversary, a history of AJL
was written, under the editorship of Leonard Gold of New York Public Li-
brary, for publication as an issue of AJL's Judaica Librarianship, which is pub-
lished twice a year.
AJL offers scholarships for library or jewish studies students who plan to go
into the field of Judaica librarianship. Funds also support AJL members at-
tending their first convention.

FROM THE DEPARTMENTS
Introducing Tames Glenn
James Glenn has settled in the Humanities and Social Sciences Reference De-
partment as Assistant Head of the Architecture and Fine Arts Library.
James received his MLS in 1989 from SUNY in Albany, New York. He has a
Master of Fine Arts degree from Ohio University, and a Bachelor of Arts de-
gree from Humboldt State University.
Immediately after receiving the MLS degree, James served as an intern and
later a consultant on a serials database development project for an art insti-
tute library in Massachusetts. He has extensive media experience as a com-
mercial and fine artist, cinematographer, photographer, and projectionist/
media technician. He has won awards for work in oil and watercolor, and
has participated in juried group, solo, and invitational exhibitions.
An auto enthusiast, his hobbies include natural science, computers, music
and woodworking. He continues to work in oil and watercolor. He has
traveled in the Orient and the South Pacific.
continued on next page 0
As Assistant AFA Librarian, James oversees the daily operations of the library.
He is making use of his varied experience to enhance reference services at
AFA, particularly in the area of database searching.
His wife, also a librarian who has served most recently in the Reference De-
partment of the State University College at Oneonta New York Library, cur-
rently works at their country home as a free-lance indexer and copy editor,
when she can get Micah, their five-year old son, away from the Macintosh.
Introducing Charles Hixson
The Library and, especially, the Department of Collection Management is
pleased to welcome Charles Hixson to its faculty in the position of History Se-
lector. The position was established during the past fiscal year and is, in itself,
an historic first in that Charles Hixson is the first selector assigned to develop
the history collections in the Library.
A fifth generation Californian, Dr. Hixson received his AB, MA, and PhD de-
grees from the University of California, Los Angeles where he concentrated on
United States history, especially Jeffersonian and Jacksonian America. His dis-
sertation, which was completed under Drs. Frank O. Gatell and Gary B. Nash,
is titled "Antimasonry in Western New York: A Social and Political Analysis."
He received a number of honors and awards at UCLA, including a "Regents'
Fellowship" and a "Chancellor's Fellowship" and he was elected to Phi Beta
Kappa in 1975.
Following a number of teaching assignments, including an 11th grade class at
a private secondary school in Santa Monica and an assistant professorship at
California State University at Chico, as well as a six-month visit to Australia,
Dr. Hixson entered library school at the University of California, Berkeley in
the summer session, 1989. He received his MLIS in May, 1990, after completing
his practicum at the University of California, Davis. He feels particularly in-
debted to the reference librarians at UC Davis who gave him a wonderful in-
troduction to the field.
As history selector, Chip will be part of the Social Sciences Circle and will re-
port directly to Ray Jones, the Social Sciences Bibliographer. He will be in
charge of building the U.S. History collection and will collaborate with area
studies bibliographers, selectors for various non-English languages, and selec-
tors working in fields important to the History of Science to ensure that the
needs of the Department of History faculty and students are well represented.
Commonly known as "Chip," his hobbies include traveling, especially to
England, classical music, good food, good wine, and hiking. I hope you take
an opportunity to introduce yourself to Chip and welcome him to the Library.

Library East Air Conditioning Upgrade
The major air conditioning retrofit of Library East is finally underway.
Some delays were experienced at the onset while plaster samples in Preser-
vation were checked for asbestos content. None was discovered and the
noise began. Some minor (one to two hour) interruptions of the building's
air conditioning system will be experienced as the work proceeds. Ad-
vanced notification will be given to the affected areas. The sounds of
progress can be expected to continue, off and on, for the next several

HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER LIBRARY NEWS
Library Completes Asbestos Project
Our friends and patrons will be glad to know that we survived the asbestos
removal project. At this very moment, the Library is resettling after nearly
a year of disruption. Since all librarians love statistics, here are a few num-
bers which illustrate what our Library staff have doggedly accomplished
during this travail. We moved over 61,000 monographs, over 173,500 jour-
nal volumes, and nearly 3,700 audiovisuals-twice! Every stick of furniture
in the Library-over 2,000 pieces-was also moved twice. This does not
take into account every computer that was moved and rewired and then
moved back again and telephones that were relocated. Trust us, it was a
big job. But we had just the person who could handle it: Esther Jones, our
Head of Public Services. Esther is now available to hire out as a consultant
to anyone facing a moving project!
We took advantage of our asbestos project to do some reorganization. The
monographs and audiovisuals are now located on the first floor with Circu-
lation. Current journals-1985 to the present-are now on the second floor
as is the Information Services department. Media/Reserve and the Medical
Informatics Laboratory remain on the second floor. Older journals remain
on the third floor.
Medical Informatics Laboratory Adds Services
The Medical Informatics Laboratory is now equipped with 17 PS/2 model
55 SX workstations each with color monitor and printer. Databases on the
CD-ROM network include SILVER PLATTER and CINAHL (Cumulative
Index to Nursing & Allied Health Literature). Electronic Drug Reference is
also available on the network.

STAFF ASSOCIATION SUPPER CLUB
Last year the Library Staff Association re-
vived the LSA Supper Club, an informal
gathering of Library personnel from all ar-
eas and levels for good fun and good food.
The group has been quite successful so far,
holding 11 events with good crowds and
much sharing of stories, good times, bad
times, and juicy gossip.
The Super Club's history goes back over 20
years. It was founded as a group that ex-
changed dinners at homes of the members.
Good times were had by all, but as the
number of people with homes large
enough to handle the group declined, in-
terest faded and the Supper Club went into
The latest revival has forsaken the home
front and arduous cooking for adventures
in local cuisine. The fare has ranged from
standard American cooking, such as the
Brown Derby, to exotic ethnic restaurants
such as Tim's Thai, to the unique Florida
offerings of the Yearling.
The organization of the Supper Club is
purposely simple and loose. A small com-
mittee communicates by e-mail to select
the restaurant (we're looking for volun-
teers). So far we've been trying to focus on
local establishments as opposed to fran-
chises, but as we run out of native fare we
are expanding the repertoire. We try to
find restaurants that will accept reserva-
tions and give us separate checks. It's
Dutch treat, so all pocketbooks can be ac-

tem. We're looking forward to seeing you

LIBRARY'S CONCERN IS SAFETY
Various information has recently been dis-
tributed to library employees regarding
personal safety procedures. Everyone is
urged to follow the guidelines at all times.
The Third National Conference on Librarians
and International Development: "Informa-
tion Management in the Developing World."
The conference, sponsored by the libraries at
Oregon and Washington state universities,
will be held at Oregon State University in
Corvallis, from April 28-30, 1991.
All phases of information management will
be considered in the initial program plan-
ning, including: training for staff, new tech-
nologies, acquisitions, preservation, biblio-
graphic control, reference services, resource
sharing, and the role of library activities in
project management. Presentations will em-
phasize work done in developing countries
and organizational ties which have fostered
improved information management.
Suggestions for speakers and proposals for
papers, poster sessions, and panels are re-
quested. Abstracts should be submitted by
