A New Year, A New Look for Ekstrom's West Atrium

Ekstrom Library's West Entrance Atrium showcases two new banners for Ekstrom Library and the McConnell Center
A New Year, A New Look for Ekstrom's West Atrium

Visitors entering Ekstrom Library from the west will be greeted by two new banners that hang in the library's west atrium. The banners signify an updated look for both Ekstrom Library, whose 1East renovation has been a hit with students and faculty, and the McConnell Center, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

Ekstrom Library's banner features a pen drawing of two cardinal birds, echoing the crimson graphic banner in the newly renovated 1East lobby. Ekstrom's new banner extends the aesthetic look of the transformed east to the west.

Please take a moment to view the new banners.

The University of Louisville Libraries celebrate National Library Week, April 9 – 15, 2017, as a time to recognize the services we offer to students, faculty and the campus community.

Our slogan – Discover. Create. Succeed. – describes the cycle of academic achievement created when our patrons interact with our rich resources and services. Our libraries are literally resource-full, helping students and faculty discover information, create scholarship and succeed in their work and lives.

Academic libraries and their personnel transform lives by providing information literacy, access to technology, diverse collections and opportunities for community engagement.

In a world of rapid technological and cultural change, libraries and library workers are establishing themselves as trusted resources for both students and the academic and local communities. Conducting research online can be daunting, even for an experienced scholar, with millions of hits for any question or topic. Librarians are trained experts who can guide library users through this information jungle to find what they are seeking, whether they are verifying news sources, investigating healthcare options or exploring sources of student financial aid.

Libraries also provide a wide range of opportunities for people with diverse wants and interests, including cultural heritage collections, materials in alternate formats such as large print, multilingual internet trainings, bilingual story hours, English as a Second Language classes and many other programs.

This year’s theme for National Library Week is “Libraries Transform,” and Olympic soccer gold medalist and World Cup champion Julie Foudy is lending her support as National Library Week Honorary Chair. Foudy is helping to shine a light on the value of all types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – and the expertise of library workers.

National Library Week celebrations include the release of the American Library Association’s 2017 “State of America’s Libraries Report” on Monday, April 10. The annual report examines library trends of the past year and will include the highly anticipated “Top Ten List of the Most Challenged Books of 2016.”

On Tuesday, April 11, National Library Workers Day will recognize librarians, support staff and others who make library service possible every day. On Wednesday, April 12, National Bookmobile Day will acknowledge the impact bookmobiles and direct-delivery outreach services have played for more than 100 years.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is observed each April by the American Library Association and libraries across the country.

Celebrating Student Writing in Ekstrom Library

Come celebrate the written word at the annual Celebration of Student Writing (CoSW), held in Ekstrom Library’s Learning Commons – First Floor, East Side – on April 5. Listen to students present their writing, both completed and in progress, in a variety of settings and formats.

CoSW allows students to present their work to a public audience, and receive feedback from people outside of their writing classes. Last year’s event brought over 100 students into the library for readings, posters, and digital media presentations. 

Individual students and entire classes have the chance to win awards for their work. Also, representatives from several writing textbook publishers will be present.

The event will be held on Wednesday, April 5 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Ekstrom Library East Lobby/ Learning Commons.

Features

•             The Writing Center will host a Creative Writing Session from 12-1 p.m.

•             Posters and digital projects will be showcased throughout the Learning Commons.

Check it Out -- Libraries' New Room Reservation System

A new scheduling system streamlines room reservations in Ekstrom, the Art Library and the Music Library. Additionally, students may now reserve study rooms on the first floor of Ekstrom.

In an effort to provide better service to our users, the Libraries have adopted a new room scheduling system, LibCal, so you can make room reservations for any room in Ekstrom Library, the Art Library or the Music Library from a single web page.

Check it out at http://louisville.libcal.com/

In addition, Ekstrom Library is launching a pilot program that allows students to make reservations for the five group study rooms on the first floor. To request a room, students should go to http://uofl.me/lib-study.

    Ekstrom Library and SGA Partner to Extend Hours in Library’s East Side

    New Hours in Ekstrom Library beginning Fall 2016 keep east side open until 2 a.m. Sunday-Thursday.
    Ekstrom Library and SGA Partner to Extend Hours in Library’s East Side

    Ekstrom Library’s newly renovated east side will stay open until 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday for the 2016 fall semester as part of an agreement between the University Libraries and the Student Government Association (SGA).

    SGA and University Libraries Student Advisory Group have been requesting extended hours in the library’s east side since the library was renovated in fall of 2015. Previously the east side closed at midnight on Sunday through Thursday. Hours will remain the same for Friday and Saturday.

    “We are extremely pleased to work with SGA to allow students more time in Ekstrom’s east side this semester,” said University Libraries Dean Bob Fox. “SGA has clearly made this a priority, and we know students will be glad for the extended hours.”

    Funded by SGA, the pilot program will measure usage by students during the fall semester, and determine whether extended hours should remain in place.

    “I am excited to finally seeing this plan implemented,” said Aaron Vance, UofL Student Body President. “This has been something that many students have addressed over the years and SGA has worked to develop a solution to afford students more time to utilize the library late-night. We appreciate the efforts of Deans Fox and Keisling for their hard work and diligent effort to make this happen as with all of the other opportunities we have had to partner with the University Libraries.”

    Ekstrom Library Extended Hours Continue Through Spring 2017

    Ekstrom Library Entrance 1E

    Through a close partnership between the University Libraries and the Student Government Association (SGA), Ekstrom Library’s east side will continue to stay open until 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday through the Spring 2017 semester.

    The pilot program, implemented in Fall of 2016 and funded by SGA, allowed students to spread out into Ekstrom’s four-story east side for an additional two hours Sunday through Thursday. Previously, the east side closed at midnight, forcing students to gather in the two-story west side if they wished to study past midnight. After measuring usage among students during those hours, SGA and the Libraries determined the program should continue.

    “We’ve heard overwhelmingly from students that they appreciate the extended hours, and so I am pleased to work with SGA to continue this program,” said Ekstrom Library’s Director and Associate Dean Bruce Keisling.

    Ekstrom Library to discontinue e-reserve service

    Ekstrom Library will discontinue offering electronic course reserve services and support at the end of the Spring 2014 semester.  Because most classes are already providing access to course reading materials through Blackboard, Ekstrom Circulation will discontinue this service. During this transition, The Delphi Center will be helping to assist Faculty in becoming more independent in controlling their online course content.

    The Circulation Department will continue to offer hard copy course reserve material support, which can be utilized by visiting Course Reserve Form for Hard Copy Materials.

    Faculty wishing to place audio/visual materials on reserve for their classes will want to bookmark the Ekstrom Library Media Course Reserve Form.

    Faculty new to Blackboard or in need of additional support for existing online courses will find a wealth of information and resources at the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning. Contact Linda Leake at (502) 852-4332 or linda.leake@louisville.edu.

    What is the Learning Commons in Ekstrom Library?

    The University Libraries' Learning Commons in Ekstrom Library is a central information hub that provides supportive services for students for a variety of projects. Come celebrate the new semester with cider and donuts on Jan. 12 in Ekstrom's 1st Floor East.
    What is the Learning Commons in Ekstrom Library?

    Video reports, podcasts, business proposals, research papers: all interesting assignments, but where can students go to develop them, and bring them to life? Located in Ekstrom Library’s 1st Floor East, The Learning Commons offers supportive services for students at all levels, to help students hone and enhance their next research project, no matter the medium.

    Located on the 1st floor of Ekstrom Library’s East Entrance, The Learning Commons includes a number of partners:

    • Research Assistance & Instruction (RAI):  Librarians and peer research assistants will help you find, evaluate, and use sources for any type of project. Via walk-in or appointment: (502) 852-6757; louisville.edu/library/ekstrom/research
    • The Writing Center:  Get help from English graduate students with writing at all stages of the process. By appointment or online:  (502) 852-2173; louisville.edu/writingcenter
    • Digital Media Suite (DMS):  Use state-of-the-art equipment for video and audio recording and editing, getting help from experienced tutors:  (502) 852-3787; louisville.edu/digitalmediasuite
    • REACH Computer Resource Center:  Work with tutors trained to assist with computer programing and computer-related projects: (502) 852-7569; reach.louisville.edu
    • Access & User Services (AUS):  Check out video cameras, SD cards, whiteboard markers, laptops, headphones, flash drives, chargers, adapters, and more:  (502) 852-6757. louisville.edu/library/ekstrom/aus

    One goal of Ekstrom’s 2014 renovation of the 1st Floor East was to bring Learning Commons partners into close proximity. Formerly on Ekstrom’s 3rd floor, the Writing Center moved to the East Lobby, adjacent to RAI’s Research Help Desk and offices. DMS, REACH and AUS are nearby on the same floor.  Additionally, the renovation added flexible and comfortable furniture that can be easily rearranged, tables with power outlets, individual study carrels and spaces that lend themselves to group interactions. Counter-height tables provide a platform for rotating book and movie displays.

    Throughout the semester, Learning Commons partners meet to find ways to spark students’ creativity and learning. Some notable events include the Banned Books Week celebration last fall, the Writing Center’s workshops and writing groups, and workshops offered by the Digital Media Suite.

    Similarly to UofL, universities across the country have created central hubs where students can get help with research, writing and learning. Merging library functions with computer labs and other tutoring services, these hubs provide comfortable and creative space for students to work individually or with a group and find support for their assignments or projects.

    The Ekstrom Learning Commons is constantly evolving to meet the important goal of fostering student success. We look forward to student and faculty input as we move forward with new initiatives and offerings.

    The Learning Commons and the Art Library welcome students back with free donuts and cider in Ekstrom Library’s 1st Fl. East Lobby on Thursday, Jan. 12, from 9:00am-11:00am. Learn about the Digital Media Suite, the Research Consultation Office, and the Writing Center. Create art at the Art Library’s maker table.

    It’s Bean Awhile: Starbucks Opens in Ekstrom Library on January 17

    Starbucks to open January 17 in Ekstrom Library
    It’s Bean Awhile: Starbucks Opens in Ekstrom Library on January 17

    Following a few months of construction and scarcity of caffeinated beverages, a new Starbucks will open in UofL’s Ekstrom Library on Tuesday, January 17.

    The full-service café, which includes a coffee bar and upgraded seating, will be located on the West 3rd Street entrance, in space formerly occupied by the Tulip Tree.

    Aramark Food Service Manager Rob McCabe said the café’s hours would correspond closely to the Library’s, and may extend to accommodate finals weeks and other peak usage times.


    Café Hours

    Monday-Thursday: 7:30 a.m. – 12 a.m.

    Friday: 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.

    Saturday: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

    Sunday: 12 p.m. – 12 a.m.


    Training has been underway for the past two weeks with 37 staff members, mostly UofL students who will work part time. Several team leaders are employed full time, McCabe said.

    UofL’s Student Government Association had heard from many students who desired a Starbucks somewhere on campus, and felt the most logical location was the centrally located Ekstrom Library. The University Libraries’ Student Advisory Board had also expressed a similar wish for a Starbucks in the Library.

    McCabe said that anyone who prefers Heine Brothers coffee can still find it at the Ville Grill and through Aramark’s catering service.

    He added that Starbucks is currently featuring two new beverages: Smoked Butterscotch Latte and Cascara Latte.

    Journal impact factors: what are they, how to find them

    The impact factor is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in a journal. It is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field, with journals with higher impact factors deemed to be more important than those with lower ones. Use the Journal Citation Reports database, available on the Kornhauser Health Sciences Library homepage and on Databases: A to Z, to determine the impact factor for a journal.

    New Acquisition Tells Story of Pre-Civil War Advocacy for Emancipation in Kentucky

    University Libraries welcomed donors to Archives and Special Collections to review: “Address to the people of Kentucky on the subject of emancipation.”
    New Acquisition Tells Story of Pre-Civil War Advocacy for Emancipation in Kentucky

    ASC Archivist Tom Owen, donor Guy Montgomery, Dean Robert J. Fox, Jr.

    On October 26, the University Libraries invited donors to the Archives and Special Collections (ASC) Gallery to learn more about a recent acquisition by the University Libraries, the pre-Civil War “Address to the people of Kentucky on the subject of emancipation.”

    Written in anticipation of Kentucky’s August 1849 constitutional convention, the 12-page pamphlet employed statistics and other data to support the social, moral and economic evils of slavery, said Archivist for Regional History, ASC, Tom Owen.

    “This document has significant teaching value,” said Tom Owen. “Imagine here in Kentucky, a slave state, someone would advocate – 11 years before the Civil War – that the state should emancipate the slaves.”

    The pamphlet was penned by a committee that included prominent Louisville-area statesmen Reuben Dawson, James Speed, William E. Glover, William P. Boon and Bland Ballard. It advocated that the state constitution outlaw and gradually eliminating slavery from Kentucky.

    Students, faculty, researchers and other visitors are welcome to peruse the document at ASC in the lower level of Ekstrom Library.

    Student Research Contest Winner Exhibits at Art Library

    The Margaret M. Bridwell Art Library is proud to present the winner of the first Art Library Research Contest: Helen Payne (MFA 2019), and her exhibit, "The ABCs of Weights and Measures."  Helen was chosen by a jury of UofL staff from eight entrants, all of whom explained how they use the Art Library within their own research.

    The ABCs of Weights and Measures shows how our personal and physical identities are shaped by testing and quantifying specific human measurements. The exhibit includes figure drawings and books which draw upon Helen’s parenting experience of using measurement and analysis, which are often in conflict.

    This exhibit marks the debut of the Art Library's new exhibit case that was installed over the Winter Break.  The new space allows the library to present a more comprehensive picture of research collections, as well as student and faculty research projects.

    This exhibit begins February 2, 2017 and runs through March.

    Art Library hours are:

    Monday-Thursday: 8am - 7pm

    Friday: 8am - 5pm

    Saturday: 12pm - 5pm

    Sunday: 1pm - 7pm

    A sophomore majoring in marketing with a minor in International Business, Savannah plans to study in Madrid next spring as part of the Business School Exchange study abroad program.

    “I definitely will use the money to pay for school and just save for studying abroad,” she said. “I think immersion is the best way to learn about the world. And I’m so interested in other cultures, so this will be a great opportunity.”

    Rachel Bouya-Ahmed (Second Place: $300)

    Rachel is a UofL graduate – with a Pan-African Studies major and French minor – and is entering as a first-year graduate student this summer, focusing on English as a Second Language, and Teacher Leadership with the College of Education and Human Development.

    “I am so excited to begin a graduate degree in Teacher Leadership that focuses on ESL,” she said. “It will really support my dreams of teaching English abroad.” "I am also very grateful to have earned this scholarship-it gave me the extra boost I needed before the semester began."

    Romiltia W. Prince (Third Place: $200)

    “Money Smart Week at Your Library” is presented in conjunction with a national partnership initiative between the American Library Association (ALA) and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to promote personal Financial Literacy programming for all ages, and all stages of life.
