Those of you who have been receiving the UCLA Library’s progress reports for the 
past several years may have noticed a pattern. 

Two years ago, in reviewing the Library’s accomplishments during the 2004-05 
fiscal year, we featured UCLA undergraduate student Matthew Barragan, who took 
a seminar on library research that helped him write a uniquely personal research 
paper for a general education course. To frame the 2005-06 fiscal year, we spoke 
with two graduate students about their intensive use of library collections for 
their dissertations: Chris Johanson in classics, and Anne Stiles in English. If you 
missed either of these progress reports, you can download PDF versions online 
at <http://www2.library.ucla.edu/about/3542.cfm>. 


Letter 
from the 

University 

Librarian 


For the 2006-07 fiscal year, our focus is on faculty. UCLA has attracted acclaimed and accomplished academics 
from across the country and around the world, who are drawn to the campus for its unique mission combining 
education, research, and service. Part of the attraction is the UCLA Library, which is ranked among the top ten 
research libraries in North America, as determined by the Association of Research Libraries. 


On the following pages you will find faculty from departments and interdisciplinary programs across campus 
explaining in their own words how they draw on library collections, services, and facilities in courses, 
for research, and as inspiration. The scope of their areas of interest is vast, requiring extensive collections, 
personalized services, and knowledgeable staff to support them. Yet the Library’s budget, the vast majority 
of which comes from state general funds, is limited. 


Thus, central to the Library’s ability to serve faculty is the generosity of thousands of donors, whose names 
you will find in the Donor Honor Roll. Some gave funds for acquisitions or programs, and others gave to the 
University Librarian’s discretionary fund, which enables me to support the Library’s highest priority needs, 
whether that’s a new online database; a purchase of opportunity, like those listed on pages ten and eleven; or 
renovations to a library facility. 

On behalf of the faculty who appear in this progress report, and the thousands of others who use the Library 
equally intensively but whose stories we were not able to tell, I would like to thank each of you for your 
invaluable contributions. As you read the following pages, you can take pride in knowing that their accom¬ 
plishments are due in part to your generosity and thoughtfulness in supporting the UCLA Library.

“I’m a heavy serial user in an interdisciplinary

I LOVE THE LIBRARY.” 

- Comment from faculty member in response to a library 
service quality survey, Spring 2007 


That’s one perspective on UCLA Library collections; more 
in-depth conversations with other faculty members in widely 
varying fields revealed the variety of materials they used and 
experiences they had.

Cue ^SAeet’ 


Library collections draw researchers from across the country, such as Scott 
Paulin, a visiting professor of musicology during 2006-07. “I made extensive 
use of materials held in Arts Library and Music Library special collections, 
primarily in relation to research on silent film accompaniment practices 
of the 1920s,” Paulin explained. “I was able to examine approximately one 
thousand cue sheets, split between two collections, which may inform 
projects dealing with specific films, studios, composers, or stars, as well as 
a possible larger project dealing with cue sheets.” 

Paulin’s work led him to additional collections. “Since cue sheets point 
toward contemporary printed sheet music, it was possible to cross-reference 
the cue-sheet collections with the Capitol Theater Collection of Silent Film 
Music and Louis B. Schnauber/Film Music Society Collection in order to 
flesh out specific details of accompaniment practice.” 

Paulin also consulted the Alois Reiser Collection to answer some questions 
about the career of this composer who bridged the silent and sound film 
eras around 1930, the Metro Goldwyn Mayer Motion Picture Scripts to gather 
essential context for an article on the music for Greta Garbo’s silent films, 
and the Twentieth Century Fox Legal Records to complete research on a project 
dealing with Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s films of the late 1940s and early ‘50s. 

“I look forward to returning to the UCLA Library in the future in order to 
pursue these topics — and other ones — in further detail,” Paulin concluded.

Mat h professor Veeravalli Varadarajan used the holdings of the Science and 
Engineering Library for a book he wrote on the eighteenth-century Swiss mathe¬ 
matician and physicist Leonhard Euler. Varadarajan said that the book grew out 
of a course he taught at UCLA in the history of mathematics. “Usually, history 
of mathematics courses start with Babylonian mathematics and slowly work their 
way, but it’s too long a distance to come to anything reasonably resembling mod¬ 
ern things. So when 1 gave the course, I decided to concentrate on the work of 
one person, and that was Euler. I gave a course, and slowly it grew into a book.” 

Describing his use of library collections, Varadarajan explained, “All of Euler’s 
published papers are part of a collection called Opera Omnia, and we have Opera 
Omnia here.” Even for such a historical figure’s own writings, library collections 
continue to grow, as he noted, “Euler is the most prolific figure in science; 
his collected papers ran to more than thirty thousand pages.” As a result, “the 
collection is still incomplete; many of his unpublished manuscripts are still 
not in print, and one or two of the Opera Omnia volumes are announced but 
not yet printed.” 

However, not all of the materials Varadarajan needed were held by the library. 
“There were other auxiliary works - not his writings - some of which were not 
available in the library, and I worked through Anita [Colby, mathematics librarian] 
to have them ordered and also to bring them by interlibrary loan. Anita served 
as a good help for me,” he concluded, “because whenever I wanted something, 

I would go to her.”

Roman Koropeckyj, associate professor in the Department of Slavic Languages 
and Literatures, also encountered areas in which collections are incomplete. 

“The Slavic collections, when it comes to Russian materials, are quite good," 
he explained. “But in my areas - Polish, and even more so for Ukrainian - 
they are not so good. In periodicals, the Polish/Ukrainian literature collection 
is absolutely pathetic, and that’s what faculty and grad students have to have 
to keep up with what’s going on in the field.” 

He cited several examples. “For my forthcoming biography of the nineteenth- 
century Polish national poet Adam Mickiewicz, I had to request approximately 
two-thirds of the items in the bibliography - which has about one hundred 
entries - through interlibrary loan. For an article I’m currently writing on 
the theory and practice of English-Polish translations by Stanislaw Baranczak, 
of the twenty items I needed, I had to request fifteen or sixteen through ILL." 

In strong terms, Koropeckyj described the impact of this on his work: “It’s a 
form of censorship, because it forces me to think twice about what I write about, 
whether the library has the items I need or I can get them quickly through inter- 
library loan.”

Faculty Involvement Central to Digital Library Program 


Faculty involvement was central to a 
number of projects the Digital Library 
Program completed or made substantial 
progress on during 2006-07. 

For Professor Raymond Knapp, chair 
of the Department of Musicology, 
the program created a Web site at 
<http://epub.library.ucla.edu/knapp/ 
americanmusical/book2> with streamed 
musical examples from Music Library col¬ 
lections to accompany the second vol¬ 
ume of his American Musical series, The 
American Musical and the Performance of 
Personal Identity (Princeton University Press, 
2006). The program had created a similar 
site for the first volume, The American 
Musical and the Formation of National Identity, 
published in 2004 and recently released 
in paperback. 

The idea of posting excerpts on a Web 
site to aurally illustrate points in the text 
was not part of the original concept for 
the volumes, Knapp said. “It developed 
in part because the Press was concerned 
about providing material [on CD], and 
it was actually my editor who first raised 
the issue of a Web site. From then on, 
it became just an issue of what we might 
be able to do, and that of course had to 
do with all sorts of practical issues and 
legal issues. 

"I started talking directly with the Lib¬ 
rary, with Gordon Theil [head of the 
Music Library] and Stephen Davison [head 
of the Digital Library Program]; both of 


and documents originally collected by 
Fusen Kakutoku Domei, an organization 
of Japanese women campaigning for the

by Japan Alumni Association.

Japanese relationships] 

Nearly twenty thousand historical docu- 


them were incredibly supportive. They 
were also very helpful, along with the 
Center for Digital Humanities, in helping 
to get funding to do the Web site. 

“I think we’re the first to do something 
like this; I don’t know anyone who’s 
done this on this kind of scale,” con¬ 
cluded Knapp. “Both the publisher 
and the Library were all the happier 
to be involved because it was a 
pioneering effort.”

The Digital Library Program also received 
a major grant from the National Endow¬ 
ment for the Humanities for a project 
to catalog, digitize, and provide online 
access to the Caro Minasian Collection 
of Near Eastern manuscripts. 

Hossein Ziai, director of Iranian studies 
and professor of Iranian and Islamic 


studies and the project’s principal 
faculty advisor, sponsor, and advocate, 
described the collection as “one of the 
most important collections of Arabic 
and Persian manuscripts of its kind, cer¬ 
tainly in the U.S., if not internationally.” 

Forming a rich repository of Islamic 
learning, it contains more than fifteen 
hundred manuscripts in Arabic and 
Persian dating from the fourteenth to 
the nineteenth centuries on astronomy, 
government, history, language 
and grammar, law, literature, 
philosophy, religious practice, 
and science. The materials are 
extraordinary for their intellectual 
content and their importance to 
scholarly research, and this project 
also supports the Library’s efforts, 
in partnership with an internation¬ 
al group of institutions, to provide 
coordinated access to Near Eastern 
manuscript collections worldwide. 

“Much of the content of these 
manuscripts has never been sys¬ 
tematically studied," Ziai added. 
“Thus, access to such a unique 
collection will undoubtedly lead to 
groundbreaking scholarship.” 

The online collection is currently 
browsable by subject at <http://unitproj. 
library.ucla.edu/dlib/minasian>, where 
a prototype of a search interface is 
also available.

However, he was quick to note that Liladhar Pendse, who was 
appointed as librarian for Slavic and East European studies in June 
2006, is working to address the deficiencies. He also noted that 
he could easily obtain many materials from the University of 
California, Berkeley. “Berkeley has a very good Polish collection 
and a surprisingly good Ukrainian collection, which is practically 
unused. Requesting items from there is essentially like requesting 
them from the SRLF [Southern Regional Library Facility, an 
on-campus storage facility].” 



Koropecky also praised the library’s interlibrary loan service. “Anyone who 
studies Polish or Ukrainian, whether faculty or students, has to use interlibrary 
loan. The regular ILL staff has been absolutely magnificent, really wonderful. 


“In general, I really think this library is underfunded,” Koropeckyj concluded. 
“Libraries throughout the UC system should focus on specific, smaller collecting 
areas and not duplicate materials in the same fields. And the chancellor and the 
system should increase library funding.” 


The comments of another faculty member in the Spring 2007 library service 
quality survey echoed those thoughts: “I love the libraries at UCLA. They are 
a treasure that must be supported and sustained at all costs.”

University Librarian Discretionary Fu 


Contributions to the University Librarian Discretionary Fund made 
possible a number of major acquisitions for which funding would 
otherwise have been unavailable. 


The Louise M. Darling Biomedical Lib¬ 
rary’s History and Special Collections 
acquired the first copy west of the 
Mississippi of Das Tier in der decortiven 
Kunst (Vienna, 1896-98) by the well- 
known artist Anton Seder (pictured right). 
The work’s two large folio volumes con¬ 
tain stunning plates with extraordinary 
Art Nouveau depictions of real, iden¬ 
tifiable animals that reflect an artist’s view 
of nature. 



experts from around the world. The content is organized into ten 
volumes, nine of which each cover a specific geographical region, 
and the tenth devoted to general perspectives 
and reference tools. 




The Charles E. Young Research Library acquired 
a variety of materials to support UCLA’s inter¬ 
national and global studies programs. 


With the purchase of the twelve-hundred- 
volume Si ku quan shu cun mu cong shii, one- 
hundred-volume Si ku quan shu cun mu cong 
shu bu bian, and 301-volume Si ku wei shou shu 
ji kan, the Richard C. Rudolph East Asian 
Library has become one of the few major 
East Asian collections in North America 
to have the complete Si ku series. Known 
in English as Great Encyclopedia of the 

Four Treasuries, this extensive collection contains Chinese scho 
larship from antiquity to the eighteenth century. 



These included nearly one thousand titles 
published in Central Asia, the Middle East, 
and North Africa on the art, economics, his¬ 
tory, literature, and religion of these regions. 
Among them were Empire Ottoman dans 1 ’Europe 
de la Renaissance: Idees et Imaginaires d’lntellectuels, 
de D iplomates et de I’opinion Publique dans les Anciens 
Pays-Bas et le Monde Hispanique aux XVe, XVIe et 
debut du XVIIe Siecles; Histoire de la Pensee Arabe et 
Islamique; Holy Kabah and the Two Holy Mosques: 
Construction and History; and eighteen volumes 
of source materials about the Lebanese 
civil war. 


The Music Library licensed access to a major online music

Fund Acquisitions 


Titles in the history of science, in which UCLA has one of the 
strongest interdisciplinary programs in the country, included 
Leonardo Fibonacci: Matematica e Societa nel Mediterraneo nel Secolo XIII; 
Opere Mnemotecniche by Giordano Bruno; Giordano Bruno: 0 lire il Mito 
e le Opposte Passioni; Magic, Alchemy, and Science: Fifteenth-Eighteenth 
Centuries: The Influence of Hermes Trismegistus; and Origin of the History 
of Science in Classical Antiquity. 



Enhancing the library’s historically strong collection of Ottoman 
publications were monographs and serials in subjects ranging from 
history to literature, mostly published in the late nineteenth and 
early twentieth centuries. This recent acquisition gives the UCLA 
Library one of the top five Ottoman collections in the nation, 
further underscoring the importance of discretionary funding in 

building collections and support¬ 
ing UCLA’s renowned teaching 
and research programs. 

The Research Library Department 
of Special Collections acquired 
an unusual book and an important 
photographic collection. Samuel 
Francis Smith’s America (c. 1930) 
(pictured left) is a rare example 
of an illustrated manuscript exe¬ 
cuted in Los Angeles. Each verse 
of the song “America” bears an 
initial letter and a small image. 
Smith’s ancestor Samuel Francis 

Smith (1808-95) wrote the lyrics to the song, which was composed 
in 1832 and first sung on July 4, 1832, at the Park Street Church 
in Boston.

Taken by noted photographer Dick Whittington, an archive of 
nine black-and-white photographs documents the development 
of Leimert Park around 1929. Developed by Walter H. Leimert 
beginning in 1928 and designed by the Olmsted brothers, this was 
one of the first comprehensively planned communities in Southern 
California designed for low- and middle-income families and 
was considered a model of urban planning for its time. The Dick 
Whittington Studio, the largest photography studio in L.A. from 
the mid-i920S to early ’80s, specialized in commercial photo¬ 
graphy and as a consequence documented the growth and com¬ 
mercial development of the city. 

Discretionary funding enabled the Science and Engineering Lib¬ 
rary to acquire a number of important reference works and also 
allowed the library to secure significant prepublication discounts. 

The New Dictionary of Scientific Biography will add scientists missing 
from its earlier editions and update entries to reflect current 
scholarship; it will also be available online. The three-volume 
Comprehensive Microsystems, a new reference work on micromecha¬ 
nical systems, addresses the need for an overview of the techno¬ 
logies and capabilities available in this highly interdisciplinary 
and dynamically growing engineering field. 

The online Encyclopaedia of Mathematics is the most up-to-date 
and comprehensive English-language, graduate-level reference 
work in the field of mathematics. The six-volume Wiley Encyclo¬ 
pedia of Computer Science and Engineering covers the latest advances 
and findings in computer science and engineering and is also 
available online.

Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts 
Six bound medieval and Renaissance manu¬

is Thomas of Ireland’s Manipulus florum, or 
Bouquet of Flowers, the first important collec¬ 
tion of extracts from ancient, patristic, and 
medieval authors, which served medieval 
and Renaissance preachers and writers 
including Christine de Pizan, the first French

one in North America with manuscripts of 
each of her major primary sources.

Intellectual Property in the Digital Age 

Whether publishing or teaching, faculty members constantly encounter copyright 
and permissions issues regarding both their own intellectual property and that of 
others. To ease their way through this complicated and constantly changing land¬ 
scape, the Library’s Scholarly Communication Program offered programs, resources, 
and advice about authors agreements, fair use, permissions, and the specialized 
requirements of data access and sharing. 


Publishing a book or a journal article presents faculty 
authors with an opportunity that many don’t know 
about or don’t take advantage of: to negotiate the terms 
of the author’s agreement. Authors have legal rights as 
copyright holders, and modifying agreements to retain 
certain rights helps ensure the broadest possible access 
to their writings. 

Horacio Roque Ramirez found out that the Library 
could help him modify an author’s agreement with 
the University of Chicago Press almost by accident. 

An assistant professor of Chicana and Chicano studies 
at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Roque 
Ramirez was doing a postdoctoral fellowship during 
2006-07 co-sponsored by the UCLA Chicano Studies 
Research Center, Center for Oral History Research, and 
the Institute of American Cultures. 

At the Center for Oral History Research, Roque Ramirez 
met Marta Brunner, who was doing a postdoctoral fellow¬ 
ship at the UCLA Library through the Council on Library 
and Information Resources. Brunner learned about his 
book project and suggested that he talk with Sharon 
Farb in the Library's digital collection management 
and licensing office. 

“I was about to sign the contract, and Sharon met with 
me for about an hour and a half, going over it line by 
line,” said Roque Ramirez. 

Although the contract still hasn’t been finalized, Roque 
Ramirez expects to finish the first full manuscript for his 
book, tentatively titled Memories of Desire: An Oral History 
from Queer Latino San Francisco, 1960S - 90S , by December 2007. 

"It’s an impressive service,” Roque Ramirez concluded. 
"Junior academics have little knowledge about how to 
negotiate contracts, but authors should be in a position 
of power. ” 

Intellectual property issues were also central to the Web 
site the Digital Library Program created for Raymond 
Knapp to accompany his book The American Musical and the 
Performance of Personal Identity (see article on page eight). 
“We are doing everything within what we believe to be 


reasonable fair use,” said Knapp. “The publisher was con¬ 
cerned about that issue, and they passed it through their 
legal people, got some assurances from us - I think they 
were also reassured that it was the Library who’s doing it, 
who know quite a lot about fair use.” 


The American Musical and the Performance of Personal Identity 
by Raymond Knapp 


Music librarian Gordon Theil puts the project in a broader 
context, “The Web site illustrates an innovative way to 
make fair use of copyrighted material in support of an 
academic publication.” 

Knapp talked about the project at “Ain’t Misbehavin’: 
Using Music in Course Instruction and E-Publishing,” 
a session held in April as part of the program’s lunch 
series “Intellectual Property in the Digital Age: The 
Rights Stuff for Publishing and Teaching.” 

The lunch series also featured sessions on negotiating 
authors agreements to keep copyright, getting permission 
to use material in instruction and electronic publishing, 
and following new guidelines and policies in data access 
and sharing. 

“It was mostly Gordon going over various ins and outs 
of fair use as applied to academic and Web site uses,” 
Knapp noted. “And I talked about what we actually did. 

I think it’s particularly lucky for me that I’m here at 
UCLA, because the Library has been at the forefront 
of establishing and maintaining an aggressive position 
with regard to fair use.”

Program at UCLA 
Is a Model...” 


The Center for Primary Research and Training welcomed its first group of graduate-student 
researchers to the Charles E. Young Research Library in Fall 2004. Since then, the sixty-one 
students from eleven academic departments who have worked in the center have gained first¬ 
hand experience with primary source materials, encountered possible topics for theses or 
dissertations, received training in archival methods, and made more than seventy collections 
accessible to other researchers. 

History professor Stephen Aron, who is also executive director of the Institute for the Study of the American 
West at the Autry National Center, has seen first-hand the effects on his students, and he spoke enthusiastically 
about the center. 

“So much of what has been collected remains inaccessible because no one’s there to catalog it, to make it available. 

It seems to me the program at UCLA is a model in so many different respects for what other institutions around the 
state and the nation should emulate for a variety of reasons. 

“First, as an instructor of graduate students and dissertators, it a wonderful way of introducing students to inten¬ 
sive, primary-source research, especially for students who are trying to figure out their dissertation topic, to be able 
to engage them with primary source materials earlier than usual in the degree process. 

“I think anecdotally it helps advance students to candidacy more quickly. If they already have an idea for a disserta¬ 
tion topic, it widens their field of vision. And it makes them aware of what they’ll find in sources and what they 
won’t, even if the collections they're working with aren’t on their specific topic. 

“Second, it provides funding. Students do valuable work and are paid at a rate that can cover a substantial part of 
their basic living expenses. In fact, if the program expands, we may have to worry that it will attract students away 
from other jobs like teaching assistant! 

“Third, it provides a service to future patrons. That’s particularly important when it comes to serving as a model 
for smaller institutions with smaller budgets and staffing. For example, it’s served as a model for us to reconfigure 
a graduate student fellowship at my institution. So it’s a win-win all around.”

Services 


Enhancing Instruction, Introducin 

Faculty members are perhaps the most intensive and sophisticated users of library 
services, as their comments about instruction, reserves, and reference reveal. 


“The service, and attention, and help that we receive from 
the library has been well beyond what you expect librarians 
will do,” said Fred Hagigi, associate professor in the Depart¬ 
ment of Health Services and director of the Executive Edu¬ 
cation Programs in Healthcare Management and Policy and 
Executive Master of Public Health Program. “The image of 
librarian has changed; it’s now a major partnership. We’re 
designing our curriculum with their assistance, doing a con¬ 
tinuous process of improvement with their assistance, being 
partners in the whole program.” 

Cheryl Bartel and Andrea Lynch in the Louise M. Darling 
Biomedical Library conduct a sequenced program of lectures 
and hands-on workshops each quarter for his classes, on sub¬ 
jects ranging from how to search a database to what to think 
about when planning a Powerpoint presentation. “It is even 
more important for students in our executive program, who 
are physicians, administrators, nurses, clinicians, and are very 
well-accomplished in their fields,” noted Hagigi. “However, 
they’re not researchers; they don’t know how to write papers, 
and they’re petrified.” 

Hagigi spoke with great enthusiasm about the effect of the 
library’s efforts on the students. "By the time the students 
leave, the librarians have helped them so much that these peo¬ 
ple can really fish, for life. The valued image of our program 
has substantially increased because this is one of the most 
important skill sets that our students can develop.” 

In fact, he credited the library with a role in the school’s 
recent accreditation efforts “We got the only no-modification 
evaluation amongst all the schools of public health in the 
nation, and one of the things that we were bragging about 
was the resources and partnership with the library. 

“I call Cheryl and Andrea the library angels,” he concluded 
with a smile. “They really have made my life so much easier. 
They make us shine!” 

Rebecca Davis, a lecturer in the Department of Sociology, 
has also integrated library instruction into her course Socio¬ 
logy 20, Introduction to Sociological Research Methods. 

“The students are required to complete a research project 


(develop a survey, collect data, analyze data, report findings), 
with the first part of the project being a literature review," 
she explained. 

“Diane Mizrachi and her staff [librarians in the College Lib¬ 
rary] have been incredibly helpful. The students learn how 
to access library holdings remotely, what resources are avail¬ 
able to them, how to find articles/books on subjects, search 
words/phrases to use, and a general understanding of the 
library system.” 

The library instruction takes place in computer labs during 
the discussion sessions with teaching assistants. This enables 
librarians to employ as much hands-on learning as possible so 
that the students get to practice and hone their research skills. 

“Students have told me that Diane’s sessions have been some 
of the most valuable time spent learning,” added Davis. “They 
are able to use this know¬ 
ledge not only in my 
course but in all their 
courses. More than once 
I’ve been told that they 
wished this library train¬ 
ing had been required 
during their first quarter 
at UCLA.” 

When it comes to special 
collections materials, fac¬ 
ulty and librarians take a 
different approach to 
“hands-on” instruction. 

For her comparative liter¬ 
ature course focusing on 
“The Arabian Nights” 
cycle of tales, Susan 
Slyomovics, professor in the Department of Anthropology 
and director of the Center for Near Eastern Studies, noted, 
“You have a very nice collection of material in the [Charles E. 
Young Research Library] Department of Special Collections, 
and I want the students to write about it; I don’t want them 
just to look at it.” 











{ UCLA Librarian } progress report 2006-07 page 15 


Collections, Easing Access 


Slyomovics devoted the classes during one week of the ten- 
week quarter to library instruction. Rare books librarian 
Cristina Favretto began the first session by introducing 
the students to the concept of special collections, what 
the procedures are, and what kinds of materials the depart¬ 
ment collects. 

“She had arranged a full display of the highlights, including 
ephemera like cards and pop-up books, and the students could 
see how it was written, drawn,” Slyomovics said. “The first 
day she talked about the manuscripts, Western translations, 
Persian materials, because I’m interested in how it circulates 
in the West.” 

The response from the students was immediate. “You could 
see it worked beautifully for the class. Students started 
asking about possible topics - could they do this, could they 
come and see her - and I got a lot of good papers out of it. 

I learned a lot, too,” Slyomovics added. “I know how the tales 
traveled, orally or written, but I didn't know how the actual 
format traveled.” 


This first session was followed by a second, in which Favretto 
and Jonathan Friedlander, assistant director of the Center 
for Near Eastern Studies, talked about his Middle East Ameri¬ 
cana collection donated to the library. “CD covers, comic 
books, posters, theme parks using Arabian Nights, card 
games, board games, things you would never have imagined - 
tobacco tins.” 

Before this class, Slyomovics noted, none of the students 
had set foot in special collections. Once they did, she noted, 
“They were stunned. And the idea that you could go back - 
that you’re not just looking at it; you can go back and write 
a paper on it? Those were some of the best papers.” 

Library instruction is only one form of course support that 
the Library offers to faculty; another heavily used service 
is course reserves. One of the most prolific users of course 
reserves on campus has been the School of Nursing, and 
assistant professor Lynn Woods talked about how she uses 
reserves in her classes on gerontology topics. 

“I use the library a lot for course reserves,” 
she explained. “Most are journal articles online. 
Occasionally, I bring my own book in, because 
it was a text that you didn’t have, and you’ll put 
it on reserve.” She noted one of advantages of 
book reserves from the student perspective: "It 
was helpful when there are one or two chapters 
that we use; there’s really no need for them to buy 
the whole book. Students always are searching for 
ways to save money, so that’s a help.” 

The assignments that the course reserves drew 
on were papers, which led Woods’s students to 
use the library’s reference services. “When the 
students have had some difficulty finding other 
articles for their papers, the librarians have been 
really helpful,” Woods said. “They have more 
experience in searching different databases that 
might be helpful.” 

The librarians have also been helpful to Woods 
in connection with her own research. “I call 
Cheryl [Bartel] my ‘EndNote guru,”’ Woods 
said with a laugh. “Every time 1 talk to her 
1 learn something!”

From 12/7 to 9/11: 

Lessons on the Japanese 
American Internment 

April-June 2007 

Charles E. Young Research Library 

On Feb. 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt 
signed Executive Order 9066, which authorized 
his secretary of war to establish military areas in which certain people were not 
allowed. Issued in the wake of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, the 
order mentioned no ethnic groups, but its execution focused exclusively on indi¬ 
viduals of Japanese ancestry. 

Organized in conjunction with the sixty-fifth anniversary of the order, this 
exhibit traced the effects of its implementation and suggested troubling present- 
day parallels. It used photographs, artwork, and archival materials to tell personal 
stories that raise serious questions about loyalty, racism, and goverment expe¬ 
diency and that plead for tolerance and understanding of other cultures, reli¬ 
gions, and points of view. 



In the News: Bed Bugs 

October 6-November 30, 2006 
Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library 


“Bedbugs are back and spreading through New York City like a swarm of locusts on a lush 
field of wheat. Infestations have been reported sporadically across the United States over 
the past few years. But in New York, bedbugs have gained a foothold all across the city." 


The exhibit was co-organized by the Research Library, the Department of 
Asian American Studies, and the Asian American Studies Center. Exhibit curator 
Lane Hirabayashi, George and Sakaye Aratani Professor of Japanese Internment, 
Redress, and Community in the Department of Asian American Studies, noted 
that the exhibit “both informed viewers of the disastrous consequences of mass 
. incarceration and at the same time esta¬ 
blished the tremendous scope of the 
library’s holdings, which include art, 
photos, newspaper clippings, and unique 
collections such as Presidential Medal 
of Honor winner Fred Korematsu’s exten¬ 
sive gift of documents related to his Coram 
Nobis case.” 


- Andrew Jacobs, The New York Times, November 27, 2005 

As part of its “In the News” series, the Biomedical Library’s History and Special 
Collections organized this exhibit of contemporary information and historical 
materials about the scourge of bed bugs. In the Middle Ages, bed bugs were 
found primarily in wealthy homes, but today, though they’re associated with 
cheap motels and unsanitary living conditions, these blood-sucking insects can 
now be found in the finest hotels and residences. 


Hirabayashi added, “Because I was directly 
involved in this exhibit, I was also pleased 
that we were able to stage a number of 
related forums and public events on cam¬ 
pus. This gave us an opportunity to screen 
films, invite speakers, and these helped 
us draw further attention to the exhibit, 
and also to the holdings in the library. 


“In The News” introduces historical materials 
to students in the health and life sciences and 
offers a historical perspective on contemporary 
subjects. Also featured during 2006-07 were the 
eighteenth-century Herbarium Amboinense of Georg 
Eberhard Rumpf (featured on page six in the list 
of major acquisitions), in the context of scien¬ 
tists today who are searching historical texts for 
potential new drugs, and a display on Chagas 
Disease, a potentially deadly disease prevalent 
in Latin America that is gaining attention in the 
United States, where it can be spread through 
blood transfusions and organ transplants.

“In sum, the lobby display area in 
the Research Library is an invaluable 
resource,” Hirabayashi concluded. “It is 
also a natural staging ground for related 
programming that is indispensible in 
showing that research, and research in 
the UCLA libraries, has an interactive 
foundation that bridges the collections, 
library staff, professors, students, and 
members of the wider communities that 
surround our campus.”

Dali, 1904-2004 

January 26-February 28, 2007 
College Library 

Born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain, Salvador Dali (1904-89) studied art in 
Madrid, where he became close friends with the poet Federico Garcia Lorca 
and the filmmaker Luis Bunuel. Fie then moved to Paris in the late 1920s, 
where he became involved with the Surrealists, a group of artists and writers 
who privileged the influence of the subconscious mind over the workings 


The Orsini: A Roman Baronial Family 
in Context 

January-March 2007 

Charles E. Young Research Library 

Department of Special Collections 

Based in Rome, the Orsini have been one of Italy’s leading families since the 
Middle Ages, when they acquired extensive lands across central and southern 
Italy. Over the ensuing centuries, their private armies and enormous wealth 
made them crucial players in the complicated power-game of Italian politics. 

Housed in the Research Library Department of Special Collections, the Orsini 
Family Papers offer a window into their public and private lives, especially from 
1500 to 1800. Much of the material concerns property administration, including 
maps, registers, plans and inventories of houses and palaces, appointments of 
personnel, reports from estate managers, dowries, wills, and legal documents. 


of reason. During his years in Paris, he created 
some of his most famous works, many of 
which were featured in this exhibit, including 
“The Persistence of Memory” (1931). 

This touring exhibit presented twenty-five 
reproductions of the artist’s most emblematic 
works from the collection of the Fundacio 
Gala-Salvador Dali, bequeathed by Dali 
himself, together with other masterpieces; 
the presentation at UCLA was supplemented 
by his illustrated books, autobiographical 
works, exhibition catalogs, writings, and other 
published primary sources from the UCLA 
libraries. The touring exhibit was organized 
by the Ministry of Governance and Public 
Administration of the Government of 
Catalonia, in collaboration with the Fundacio 
Gala-Salvador Dali, to mark the centenary 
of the artist’s birth.

one hundred faculty, students, and members 
of the Southern California Catalan community, 
which was sponsored by The Barcelonists:

Collections 


With the generous support of the Steinmetz Family Foundation, in 2005 the 
department began a two-year project to complete cataloging the papers and to 
digitize selected items. Soon the papers will be widely accessible to scholars and 
will also be reunited - in a virtual manner - with the remainder of the Orsini 
archive, housed in Rome. 

In celebration, the department mounted an exhibit and, in conjunction with 
the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Center for Seventeenth- and 
Eighteenth- Century Studies, and Department of Italian, organized and hosted a 
major international conference, which was funded by the Ahmanson Foundation. 

“The Orsini conference is a lovely example of activities that in some ways 
make the UCLA Library, if not unique, quite unusual,” said English Professor 
Christopher Baswell. 

“The library used the conference to put together two long-divided collections 
and help them interact at a scholarly level,” he explained. “While our collection 
is largely financial and economic, you had art historians, architectural historians, 
and cultural historians talking about it and bringing their knowledge of other 
kinds of archives to it, creating very new knowledge out of our collection. 

“Then there’s the brilliance of bringing a special collection to life and celebrating 
it in the place where it lives,” Baswell added. “The sessions were held in the 
library, then people could go downstairs and look at the materials; the exhibit 
was right there. 

“The Orsini conference happened because of generous support directly from 
the Library,” he concluded. “This is rather unusual: that the Library is entering 
into the scholarly discourse of the university, not merely being a kind of 
service repository.”

Opportunities 

The UCLA Library Associates 

Support from the UCLA. Library Associates annual giving 
program ensures that critical needs, from special oppor¬ 
tunity acquisitions to information literacy programs, are 
addressed. Discretionary funds available to the university 
librarian will make a significant impact on the quality, 
innovative resources and services that the UCLA Library 
is able to offer. The generosity of the Library Associates 
is acknowledged through invitations to a variety of stimu¬ 
lating activities throughout the year and courtesies such 
as borrowing privileges. 

Honor with Books 

Honor with Books allows donors to pay a lasting tribute 
to a special person by placing a bookplate in his or her 
honor in one newly purchased book in the subject area 
of the donor’s choice. This $100 gift directed to the 
Honor with Books Fund will support a critical acquisitions 
need while honoring a loved one, friend, or colleague 
in perpetuity. 


Collection Endowment Initiative 
The Collection Endowment Initiative provides critically 
needed funds to acquire, preserve, and make accessible 
library materials in a particular subject area of interest. 
Collection endowments begin at $25,000, and the 
Library invites donors to make a single gift or to build 
an endowed fund over several years. Special bookplates 
reflecting the interests of the philanthropist are designed 
in consultation with the donor and affixed to each item 
added to Library collections that was made possible by 
his or her generosity. 

Center for Primary Research and Training 
The Center for Primary Research and Training offers 
UCLA graduate students the opportunity to work with 
primary source materials in the Charles E. Young Research 
Library Department of Special Collections, thereby inte¬ 
grating special collections materials further into the teach¬ 
ing and research mission of the university. Support for this 
program provides stipends to graduate students each quar¬ 
ter, for five to ten participants each quarter, as well as a 
special naming opportunity to interested donors. 


How to Support the UCLA Library 


Direct Gift 

Gifts of cash or by check or credit card have an immediate 
impact. Please make checks payable to The UCLA Foun¬ 
dation. To charge your gift to your credit card, please call 
310.206.8526 for further information, or make your gift 
online at <https://giving.ucla.edu/library>; this secure 
server uses advanced encryption and firewall technology 
to protect your information. 

Securities 

The full-market value of gifts of appreciated securities 
is tax deductible. In most cases, appreciation in the value 
of the security benefits the Library and is not taxable to 
the donor. 

Matching Gifts 

Many employers will match employees’ gifts to the Lib¬ 
rary. If your company is one of them, request a matching 
gift form from the personnel or employee relations office, 
have it completed and signed, and include it with your 
gift; it may double or triple the impact of your contribu¬ 
tion. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees 
and/or spouses. 

Planned Giving 

Planned gifts include gifts through wills, living trusts, 
charitable trusts, charitable gift annuities, retirement 
plans, or other estate-planning arrangements. For further 
information about making a planned gift or bequest, 
please call the Library Development office at 310.206.8526. 

Real Estate 

Real property, either in entirety or in part, can be deeded 
to The UCLA Foundation to benefit the Library. It is possi¬ 
ble to enjoy tax benefits by deeding a home to the Library, 
while continuing to occupy the property for life. 


Bequests 

In writing a will or living trust or making other planned 
giving arrangements, donors can specify that they would 
like their estate to benefit the UCLA Library. In recogni¬ 
tion, these individuals are welcomed as members of the 
prestigious First Century Society. To ensure that your gift 
is designated properly, please contact the Library Develop¬ 
ment office at 310.206.8526 for appropriate language. 

Charitable Gift Annuity 

Donors can transfer money, securities, or real estate in 
trust to the Library and receive income for themselves or 
another for life. Donors may receive immediate tax bene¬ 
fits, and the Library ultimately receives the trust property. 

Qualified Retirement Plans 

Naming The UCLA Foundation as a beneficiary of a quali¬ 
fied retirement plan (IRA, KEOGH, 40i(k) or 403(b)) may 
be particularly advantageous by resulting in more assets 
being passed on to your heirs than if you make a bequest 
from other funds in your estate.

You were extremely kind and gracious to write a letter to me on the 
occasion of my retirement. 

Many times during the years I have wanted to write you to express 
my great admiration, not only of your achievements, but of the spirit in 
which you are leading your life, 

I would like to picture to you the boy you were. You were distinctly 
a thorough-bred who walked with a springy step, always you seemed completely

Designed for K-12 classroom use. the 
site offers educators, students, and the 
public access to more than seventy- 
five thousand images, documents, and 

other items; comprehensive essays and related images exploring the state’s evolving ethnic diversity in histo 
rical eras from pre-1768 to the present; and teacher-created lesson plans that utilize its contents. 

Launched in August 2006, California Cultures draws from the holdings of University of California libraries 
and museums - including UCLA’s Center for Oral History Research, William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, 
Fowler Museum of Cultural History, Charles E. Young Research Library Department of Special Collections, and 
University Archives - and cultural heritage organizations across the state. It was managed by Genie Guerard, 
manuscripts librarian in the Research Library Department of Special Collections. 

The project was created in response to H.R. 1905, an appropriation from the U.S. Congress through Library 
of Congress’s American Memory program, which made funds available to digitize archival materials relating 
to the ethnic groups of California.
