UT Libraries Featured in American Libraries

Posted on

The UT Libraries is featured prominently in the February 2007 issue of American Libraries, the premier publication about libraries in the United States, published by the American Library Association. The article, “Each One, Teach One: Staff Exchanges in Historically Black Schools,” explores a professional exchange program between Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and the Association of Southern Research Libraries (ASERL). The program was funded by a $20,000 grant from the Andrew Mellon Foundation.

UT Libraries was one of five libraries chosen by ASERL to participate in the exchange program. UT was chosen due to its expertise in digital libraries, collection management and institutional repositories.

UT librarians Barbara Dewey, dean of libraries; Jill Keally, interim associate dean; and Linda Phillips, head of collection development and management, are interviewed in the article. Evelyn Council, associate director for collection development at Fayetteville State University in North Carolina, discusses her experiences at UT as part of the exchange.

Film Movement Film Series presents Familia

Posted on

Film Movement Film Series will present Familia Tuesday, February 20th at 7:30 p.m. in the Lindsay Young Auditorium of Hodges Library. This showing is free and open to the public.

Michele, a divorced aerobics instructor with a gambling addiction, loses her job and seeks refuge with a childhood friend, Janine, who lives in a seemingly comfortable middle-class suburban neighborhood. Michele’s rebellious teenage daughter, Marguerite, and Janine’s shy and reserved daughter, Gabrielle, become friends, leading to unforeseen tensions that force both generations to reassess their values. Familia explores the question of how value systems are passed on from mother to daughter and asks: Is it possible to avoid passing on to our children those traits that we despise in our parents?

The Film Movement Series is just one of the many ways the UT Libraries is broadening its film collection and developing programming centered on the expanding medium of film. Although a few of the films are American-made, most hail from Europe, Australia, Africa, South America and Canada. Most have received accolades akin to Academy Awards in their home countries.

The UT Libraries and the UT Cinema Studies program worked with Film Movement to bring these first-run films to the library at the same time they are released in theaters.

15th Annual Love Your Libraries 5k Run and Fun Walk February 24

Posted on

Registration begins at 7:30 at Circle Park Drive

The Graduate Student Senate shows its love for the UT Libraries by sponsoring the 15th annual Love Your Libraries 5K Run and Fun Walk on Saturday, February 24. On-site registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and the race begins at 8:30 a.m.

Proceeds from the race are used to purchase library materials crucial to graduate-level study and research. UT Athletics has already shown its support for the libraries by helping to sponsor the race and pledging $5,000.

UT alumna Cindy Wyrick helped organize the first race in 1992 and is thrilled to see the fun run celebrate its 15th anniversary.

“Fifteen years ago, when the GSS (then Graduate Student Association) started the fun run, we were looking for a project to undertake that would benefit the entire campus,” Wyrick said. “A fun run to benefit the UT Libraries was an easy choice because no other entity on campus provides as much support and assistance to all of the University’s students as the libraries.”

“It is very rewarding to see the GSS continue to make this fundraising effort on behalf of the UT Libraries more successful each year,” Wyrick continued.

The race begins and ends at Circle Park Drive and takes runners through the heart of the UT campus. Click here for a .pdf map of the race route.

Registration costs $12 before February 14 and $15 on race day. Click here to download the 2007 entry form.

Race shirts are guaranteed to all pre-registered runners. Shirts will be given out on a first-come, first served basis on race day.

The awards ceremony immediately follows the race. Awards are given to the top three male and female overall runners, 1st Masters (40+) and 1st Grandmasters (50+). Awards must be picked up on race day morning–they will not be mailed.

For more information, please contact Graduate Student Senate Vice President Amy Colvin at or call 974-2377.

    “Woman Cook a Walking Typhoid Fever Factory,” said the headline in a New York City newspaper in 1907. The woman was Mary Mallon, an Irish immigrant who as “Typhoid Mary” would become a notorious symbol of a public health menace. Mary Mallon’s ordeal took place at a time when the new science of bacteriology was shaping public health policies in America for the first time, and her case continues to hold lessons amid today’s heightened concerns about communicable diseases. –PBS website
