Libraries hold many hidden treasures. Among these are the various government documents covering specialized topics. In correlation with the UT Libraries 100th year government depository celebration, Pendergrass Library presents a display at Hodges Library on outdoor recreational documents published for areas around Knoxville. Ranging from fishing, to hiking, to water sports the government publications are great guides to get out and play. The display also features a brief overlay of the history of the local national recreation areas.

Film Schedule

July 19: The Rage in Placid Lake (Australia) running time: 89 minutes
Australian Singer-Songwriter Ben Lee stars as Placid Lake in this dark, coming-of-age comedy. Lake’s hippy parents have raised him to always challenge people’s perceptions.

In this vibrant and thrilling crime saga, Maiquel (Murilo Benicio) has lost a bet and dyed his hair blond. This little event triggers a head-on collision with destiny in which Maiquel goes from nobody to hero to outlaw…all in 24 hours.

August 2: Wilby Wonderful (Canada) running time: 99 minutes
This bittersweet comedy is about the difference a day makes. Over the course of twenty-four hours, the residents of the tiny island town of Wilby try to maintain business as usual in the face of very unusual business. The film stars Sandra Oh, of Grey’s Anatomy and Sideways.

August 9: Ginger and Cinnamon (Italy) running time: 82 minutes
While vacationing on the Greek “Isle of Love”, a repressed 30 year old Stefania reluctantly plays chaperone to her precocious 14 year old niece, Meggy, who plans to lose her virginity before the summer is over.

UT Librarian Honored by Pi Beta Phi Fraternity

UT librarian Anne Bridges was inducted as an Honor Initiate of the Pi Beta Phi fraternity for women at their biennial conference in Scottsdale, Arizona in June. Bridges, with UT librarian Ken Wise, was co-principal investigator of the IMLS funded grant project From Pi Beta Phi to Arrowmont: Bringing Education and Economic Development to the Great Smoky Mountains, 1910-2004.

The project’s Web site chronicles the highly successful efforts by the members of the fraternity to bring educational opportunities, health care, craft development and marketing to the isolated mountain hamlet of Gatlinburg, beginning in 1912, and continuing to the present via the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. The project, which began in 2002, is available at www.lib.utk.edu/arrowmont.

The digital collection features photographs, images, letters, diaries and scrapbooks as well as a 360-degree interactive art gallery. The Web site also has historical essays that provide context and additional information about the culture and history of Gatlinburg, TN, and an integrated curriculum package for K-8 students. Wise and Bridges presented an overview of their research at the conference’s general session on June 25.

At each Pi Beta Phi convention, one woman is invited to join the fraternity as the Honor Initiate in recognition of her service to the Pi Phis. “This is an incredible honor and I am very pleased they selected me,” Bridges said.
