BY JULIE MUSICK HILLGROVE
Calling all Libraries student supervisors and graduate assistants who supervise students! Our newest training session for Libraries is ready to roll out. “Supervisor Essentials” is a very quick review of best practices in supervision. From communication and conflict resolution to hiring and managing performance, we will touch on some of the more important issues in management to refresh your skills before the students return. It will be a fast-paced training session with lots of takeaway information to put in your supervisory toolbox.
Two hour sessions will begin on Wednesday, August 11 at 8:00AM, 10:00AM, and 2:30PM and continue on Thursday, August 12 at 1:00PM in Hicks B848. There will be additional sessions after the dust settles in September. Registration is required. To register, email Linda Foster. “Supervisor Essentials” is open to any of the Libraries’ managers, but is geared toward student supervisors. We will open up later sessions to everyone and broaden the scope.
Look for in-depth training sessions on important management topics coming this fall.
Orientation Committee Gears Up for Fall 2010
BY JANE YATCILLA
The Orientation Committee (Marianne Stowell Bracke (LIFE), Frances Christman (ENGR), Mary Dugan (MEL), Wendy Kelly (HIKS), and Jane Yatcilla (MATH), chair) have spent the summer planning the Libraries' participation in Boiler Gold Rush (BGR) and other orientation events.
Boiler Gold Rush (BGR)
BGR is a five-day freshman orientation extravaganza that occurs the week before classes start. The emphasis is on small group interactions, mentoring, and FUN. This year, the Libraries supplied the Student Access, Transition and Success program with 6000 Mortarboard inserts featuring a campus map with library locations on one side, and useful Libraries facts on the other. On Monday and Tuesday, August 16 and 17, the Orientation Committee will host two special interest sessions that BGR participants can choose to attend. The theme will be The Amazing Race, and teams of students will follow clues that will lead them to various libraries on campus. All Amazing Race participants will receive a Libraries give away, and there will be a special prize for the winning teams. On Wednesday, August 18 the Orientation Committee will present a dynamic “prezi” presentation (www.prezi.com) about the Libraries in Elliott Hall, followed by a “quiz show” with questions drawn from the presentation. Prizes will be awarded to the quiz players and to the winner. The Orientation Committee will be present at the BGR Resource Fair on August 18 to answer questions and hand out Libraries flyers.
Other orientation activities slated for this year include some events for new international students. On Thursday and Friday, August 12 and 13, all libraries will offer tours for incoming international graduate students. Also, on Thursday and Friday, August 19 and 20, HSSE, MEL, and HIKS will hold open houses for new international undergraduate students. The Orientation Committee will represent the Libraries at the Graduate Student Information Fair on August 20.
New Teaching Assistants
On August 18, Catherine Riehle will lead an information/ICT literacy workshop for new teaching assistants, as part of CIE's TA training program.
Mary Dugan will be the speaker for a September 29 Lunch-and-Learn for Span Plan, Purdue's program for adult, non-traditional students.
While the Orientation Committee plans most of these events, the efforts to make each one a success come from many areas in the Libraries, including Advancement, Auxiliary Services, the Business Office, IT, and folks from every library. Thanks to everyone in the Libraries who has helped with or who will participate in Fall 2010 orientation events!
Purdue Libraries Joins TRAIL
By SUZANNE WARD
The Purdue University Libraries recently joined the Technical Report Archive & Image Library (TRAIL). TRAIL is an initiative led by the University of Arizona in collaboration with the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) and other interested agencies to identify, digitize, archive, and provide access to federal technical reports issued prior to 1975.
Technical reports contain valuable information serving specialized audiences of researchers. CRL reports: “While availability to more recent (1994–current) technical report literature has greatly improved with Internet access, legacy technical report documents remain elusive to researchers. Most large research libraries across the country have sizeable collections of federally funded technical research reports—frequently a million or more ranging from several pages to several hundred pages.”
The TRAIL Pilot Interface, hosted at the University of Hawaii of Manoa, provides access to the following report series:
- U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, Civil Effects Test Operations (AEC-CEX)
- U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, Lovelace Foundation for Medical Education and Research (AEC-LF)
- U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, Health and Safety Laboratory (AEC-HASL)
- U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, Radiation Instruments Branch (AEC-RIB)
- U.S. National Bureau of Standards, Monographs
- U.S. Bureau of Mines Bulletin
A new TRAIL interface will be available soon to provide access to all documents acquired and digitized through TRAIL, including those deposited in the HathiTrust Digital Repository and in the University of North Texas Digital Library.
Charlotte Erdmann serves as the Purdue liaison to TRAIL. As the librarians working on TRAIL identify documents that they need to complete runs of digitized reports, the Purdue University Libraries will be asked to lend paper reports to fill the gaps. Processing and digitization will take place at other institutions; the Purdue Libraries will not digitize TRAIL documents locally or host them here.
It’s exciting for the Purdue University Libraries to be part of a nationwide digitization effort to provide access to thousands of federal technical reports that are currently difficult to discover and locate.
What New Students will be Reading:
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Reviewed by LINDA ROSE
The Kite Runner has been selected for this year’s Common Reading title and, in my view, it is the best kind of book for this purpose. A moving and engaging read, it informs us about a culture most likely not familiar to the reader while remaining relevant to all human experience.
Most Americans know a long time war is going on in Afghanistan and that we’re now in it, but do we often think about the ordinary people living there and the children growing up amidst the bombs and gunfire? The Kite Runner takes us into the chaos that comes from living in the war zone. The story centers on two closely knit boys, Amir and Hassan, who have lived together from birth. Hassan is a Hazara, an ethnic group that has been persecuted for centuries and most recently targeted for ethnic cleansing by the Taliban. He is the advantaged Amir’s servant and is also Amir’s courageous, skillful runner in the kite flying competitions that are an integral part of Afghan society. A horrifying incident takes place involving the two boys and its effects haunt them into adulthood. Though Hassan’s situation spirals from bad to worse, and Amir and his father flee to America only to experience a harrowing decline in their social and economic status, the story remains a hopeful one. Amir, who in one of those regrettable moments that haunt us for life, lets Hassan down, but is given the chance for redemption we all hope for. As Amir tells us as he looks back on his life, “There is a way to be good again.”
Research & Coffee Update
BY SCOTT BRANDT
At our July 13th Research Coffee and Conversation (RC&C), approximately thirteen people were able to attend and enjoy coffee or tea, cookies and conversation. Those in attendance broke into three groups to discuss research and scholarship, especially focusing on areas which match up with the goals (“five pillars”) of our strategic plan. Research Council has been working on a research support award that will provide funds for strategic areas of research and scholarship, which will be announced soon.
For the most part, groups discussed projects in-process and ongoing—as such, several people said they found the meeting to be interesting and exciting to hear what others are doing. In a new collaboration effort, Michael Witt proposed a project related to annotating data repositories, and a few other librarians are meeting with him to discuss the project further.
A general theme that came up at the RC&C was: how can we better facilitate collaborations? Two suggestions we will try to pursue include: 1) Posting project ideas that people are exploring in advance of the next RC&C and asking others to identify an aspect (approach, methodology, scope, etc.) to bring to the next meeting to discuss or ask questions about. 2) Identifying a small group of people (3-4) to give a brief description of their research or scholarship interests, and place them at tables where a few people will sit with them and have a discussion for 10 minutes, then rotate to the next table for 10 minutes, etc. (also known as “speed dating” approach).
The next Research Coffee and Conversation will be scheduled for September, so keep an eye on your inbox for an announcement.
Ready for Use: The Engineering Conference Room
By AMANDA GILL
In the quest for more group-study space, we have spent quite a bit of time and effort revamping the former Goss Room into the Engineering Conference Room. About a year ago, the old heavy tables and “throne” style chairs were removed and replaced with sleeker, easier to move furnishings. Around the same time, all the old hutches and bookshelves that once housed the Goss collection were also removed opening up and brightening the room significantly. This spring, a new projector and four new white boards were installed, creating a space that is perfect for both small study groups and larger classes or meetings. There are still a few small projects that need to be completed, like touching up the paint, but the room stands ready to host groups that need a place to meet. Please note that this room is not equipped to handle conference calls.
The room can be reserved by calling the Engineering Library, 49-42869, or emailing Frances Christman at email@example.com.
Libraries Hours for 2010 - 2011
BY BETH McNEIL
Library hours have been approved by POC and are now set for the 2010-11 academic year. Operations Coordinators worked together and with other stakeholders to make recommendations for hours for each library, Archives and Special Collections, HKRP, Interlibrary Loan, and Circulation Services. Division Heads reviewed the recommendations to ensure that library on-site services would be available when needed by students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
During Winter Break, Purdue Libraries will have reduced hours and several libraries will close on the three weekdays between the Christmas and New Year holidays. Engineering, Hicks and Veterinary Medicine will be open December 27, 28, and 29, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Staff who work primarily in one of the libraries that will be closed have a couple of options for those days: work in HKRP on a collections-related project or take vacation days. No one will be required to take vacation! Any staff person wishing to work those days will have an opportunity to do so, but just not in a library that is closed. For safety reasons, staff should not be working alone in a closed library.
For time card purposes, December 27, 28, and 29 should reflect time worked or vacation (or, if you are ill, Sick). According to the Purdue Employee Handbook an employee needs to be in paid status for at least one half of the day before and one half of the day after a holiday to be paid for the holiday. Please refer to http://www.purdue.edu/hr/pdf/EligibilitlyForHolidayPay.pdf for more information. Anyone with questions about this should talk with their supervisor or the HR office.

CIRCULATION POLICY CHANGES FOR ALL PATRONS
The following Loan policy changes were proposed by the Circulation Services Steering Committee and were approved at the POC meeting on July 8, 2010:
- Standard Loans for undergraduate students will be increased from 3 weeks to 16 weeks.
- The loan period for the Contemporary Literature will be 3 weeks for all patron types (visitors, undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, and faculty).
- Renewals for visitors will be increased from one to three times.
All changes will be in place by the beginning of the Fall Semester.
CORRECTION: STRATEGIC PLANNING
Nancy Hewison reports that in the article, "Creating the Libraries Strategic Plan for 2011-2016," INSIDE, July 7, 2010, she misidentified the group that will meet in August with consultant Paul Meyer, of Tecker Consultants, to finalize development of the planning process which the Libraries will use. The group is actually the Planning and Operations Council (POC), not the Strategic Planning Group (SPG) as she had stated in the article.
Once the planning process has been developed, SPG will be involved in a number of planning sessions facilitated by Paul Meyer. These will take place during the fall semester, as will all-staff meetings; the gathering of input from Libraries faculty and staff, our user groups, and key university administrators; and the creation of the plan.

Changes to Second Life Administration at Purdue
The Librarian of Congress recently announced some wonderful news for higher education. Every three years the Librarian decides whether there should be exemptions to the anti-circumvention clause of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). The DMCA prohibits bypassing technological security measures to access the copyright protected content on such works as CDs and DVDs. One of the new exemptions allows for faculty in colleges and universities to circumvent technological protections of DVDs to include clips for teaching and other non-commercial purposes. This exemption will be in effect for three years.
