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.

Appreciation for Libraries Student Advisors

Maurini Strub, Zachary Herde and Dean Bob Fox

The University Libraries depends on feedback, surveys and student advisors for information on how well it serves students, faculty and researchers.

On March 10, Libraries Dean Bob Fox awarded a gift bag and card to several graduating seniors who have served on the Libraries Student Advisory Board since their freshman year. Their level of engagement has been high and absolutely crucial for the Libraries in assessing its services, he said.

Fox thanked the following students for their enthusiasm and engagement:

  • Zachary Herde, Chemical Engineering
  • Jalyn Shontee, Mechanical Engineering
  • Kevin Grout, History/Political Science
  • Philip Moore, Economics/Political Science

Beyond Beall’s List: Better Understanding Predatory Publishers

Beyond Beall’s List: Better Understanding Predatory Publishers By Monica Berger and Jill Cirasella

If you have even a fleeting interest in the evolving landscape of scholarly communication, you’ve probably heard of predatory open access (OA) journals. These are OA journals that exist for the sole purpose of profit, not the dissemination of high-quality research findings and furtherance of knowledge. These predators generate profits by charging author fees, also known as article processing charges (APCs), that far exceed the cost of running their low-quality, fly-by-night operations.

Calotype Photographs Highlighted in Archives Exhibit

The Photographic Archives gallery in Ekstrom Library's lower level, presents "Collecting Shadows: Works by the Calotype Society" with an opening reception on Thursday October 1st, at 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

The Photography Archives gallery in Ekstrom Library's lower level will host "Collecting Shadows: Works by the Calotype Society," from October 1st through December 18, 2015. The opening reception is Thursday, October 1st, from 6-8 PM. Calotype, an early photographic process using paper coated with silver iodide, was introduced by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1841 and is sometimes referred to as Talbotype. The term calotype comes from the Greek καλός (kalos), "beautiful," and τύπος (tupos), "impression."

                                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.

                                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 Chapter for Librarian After 30 Years at Ekstrom

                                Margo Smith, Associate Professor and Head of User and Access Services in Ekstrom Library at the University of Louisville is retiring.
                                New Chapter for Librarian After 30 Years at Ekstrom

                                Dean Bob Fox, Margo Smith, Assoc. Dean, Ekstrom Dir. Bruce Keisling

                                After 40 years of librarianship, Margo Smith, Associate Professor and Head of User and Access Services in Ekstrom Library at the University of Louisville is retiring a few months shy of her 30th year with the University Libraries.

                                When first hired as Head of the Bibliographic Control Unit, Margo’s first job was to dismantle the library’s card catalog, whose conversion to an electronic system began in 1987. But perhaps her most memorable task in 30 years was helping to implement Ekstrom’s Robotic Retrieval System (RRS), a unique, large-scale storage and retrieval system. Though initially skeptical, she became an ardent supporter of the RRS, which uses warehouse technology to stack books in three-story-high “arms” that can hold up to 1.2 million volumes. The UofL Libraries were the seventh academic institution in North American to use such a system. Currently, the RRS houses approximately 500,000 volumes.

                                “Initially, I thought it would be like a vending machine,” she said. “But when I saw how much it was able to store and how it operated, I was converted.”

                                Daily work and life in an academic library can prove memorable for other reasons, she said, recalling students entering Ekstrom carrying a pillow and blanket, ready to catch up on study and sleep. The odd food item left on a shelf, including a petrified hamburger wedged between two books, and a full beer in a drawer of the old card catalog, seemed worth mention.

                                In retirement, she is looking forward to catching up on her rest, doing more yoga, water aerobics and walking, and having more time to volunteer. A major focus will be helping at the Scholar House, a local nonprofit that offers childcare and other support for single parents who attend UofL.

                                “I’d like to make a Libraries connection at Scholar House,” she said. “They might need help with the Libraries’ website, making appointments with a research librarian, and other services. I know it’d be good for me and probably would be helpful for them.”

                                Margo’s last day in the office is May 12. The University Libraries celebrated her service with an afternoon retirement party.

                                “I have had a wonderful experience here,” she said. “I’ve worked with some wonderful, bright, sometimes funny colleagues. And it’s been a truly rewarding career.”

                                Reading, studying, plugging in: all will soon become easier in Ekstrom Library, thanks to funding by SGA and the University Libraries, whose collaboration will provide new furniture to the 24-hour section of Ekstrom Library’s second floor (2W), along with upgrades to power and lighting.

                                "The Libraries and SGA are listening to students on this," said Dean Bob Fox. "They’ve said they want more seating, better lighting, and more access to outlets, and we are providing that."

                                New upholstered chairs and counter-height tables and chairs will replace most of the existing furniture on the second floor in Ekstrom's western section. The furniture’s arrival date is May 10, said Ekstrom Director and Associate Dean Bruce Keisling.

                                "Dean Fox helped forge a partnership with SGA to fund these upgrades," said Keisling. "They should make the library much more comfortable and conducive to studying."

                                Over the past few months, at the request of SGA, the Libraries initiated upgrades to power and lighting on the second floor’s 24-hour section, and in the triangular study space on the 1st Floor, west, informally called Fort Louisville triangle, for its large, historic mural.  Last year, SGA purchased counter-height tables and chairs for that area, and they have proved immensely popular with students.

                                          Over the next few weeks, construction will continue on new student group study spaces, laminate flooring, lighting, a new meeting room, and the Writing Center’s new 1st Floor East location. Currently the estimated completion for all items is mid-September, according to Ekstrom Library Director Bruce Keisling.

                                          Shakespearean Humors the Focus of Kornhauser Exhibit

                                          "'And there’s the Humor of it:' Shakespeare and the Four Humors" on display now at Kornhauser Library

                                          Examine the intersection of medical theory and literature with the exhibit, "'And there’s the humor of it:'" Shakespeare and the Four Humors." Four bodily humors - blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm - were understood by Shakespeare, and generations before him, to define people’s physical and mental health, and to determine individual’s personality as well. See this exhibition to learn more about the language of the four humors and their influence in Shakespeare’s plays.

                                          The exhibit is open now and will run until July 8, 2016.  It is available for viewing 24/7 and is located on the main floor of Kornhauser Health Sciences Library.

                                          Savannah Guerrero and Rachel Bouya-Ahmed

                                          In April, the University Libraries invited UofL students to Ekstrom Library to hear financial experts talk about how to better manage their finances. A highlight of the event was a “Finding Money for College Student Scavenger Hunt,” which featured cash prizes ranging from $200-$500. The Libraries and Commonwealth Credit Union were sponsors and partners of the event.

                                          Winners were:

                                          Savannah Guerrero (Grand Prize: $500)

                                          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)
