Pop-up dissertation writing space opens March 2 on Regenstein’s A Level

A pop-up writing space, Plato’s Cave at the Library, has opened on a pilot basis to Ph.D. students who have participated in one of the Dissertation Write-In programs or Graduate Writing Workshops. Located in Regenstein Library Room A01C (the former MacLab) on the A Level, Plato’s Cave at the Library will have drop-in hours on Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The pilot program will be in place through the end of spring quarter.

A joint project of Graduate Student Affairs and the Library, Plato’s Cave at the Library is intended to be a quiet, focused destination where graduate students can make progress on writing projects, including dissertation proposals, dissertations, and/or fellowship applications.

Graduate writing consultants will also be available for one-on-one sessions to work with students, not just on particular problems in drafts but also to develop advanced skills for revisions.

“We are delighted to provide special work space on a pilot basis for graduate students writing their dissertations,” said Brenda Johnson, Library Director and University Librarian.  “Support for graduate student research and learning is an important part of the Library’s mission.  I’m pleased we can make available dedicated space for dissertation writing in Regenstein, where many graduate students already come to use collections and consult subject specialists.”

Participants must pre-register once for drop-in access to Plato’s Cave at the Library, after which they will be granted unlimited access.

Uncommon Fund grant winner requests title recommendations for young adult fiction at the Library

The University of Chicago’s Uncommon Fund has generously granted $10,000 to create a young adult fiction section for the Library. This grant will be used to purchase beloved books that shaped students’ experiences before they came to the University. These books are not normally acquired; new titles will enhance and complement the Library’s collections of fiction, including popular fiction supported by the Class of 2000 Book Fund.

Maya Handa, the College student whose application was successful in the competitive selection process, is organizing the book selection process. She is soliciting recommendations for books, which she defines as “anything written for or marketed to young adults between the ages of 11 and 18.” She has created a GoogleDocs form and invites students to “Fill out this form as many times as you would like to request your favorite books written by John Green, Sharon Creech, Tamora Pierce, Cassandra Clare, Diana Wynne Jones, Eoin Colfer, Garth Nix, Lemony Snicket, Rick Riordan, and more!” Students may also email her at mayahanda@uchicago.edu with any questions.

The Uncommon Fund is allocated by Student Government to support creative and interesting student projects or initiatives on campus. Its goal is to encourage students to take action on campus in creative and unique ways. Past projects supported by the Uncommon Fund involving the Library include a scholarly symposium on medieval art and a student-focused opening event for the exhibition On the Edge: Medieval Margins and the Margins of Academic Life in 2012, installation of a hot water dispenser in Regenstein in January 2014, and free distribution of print copies of the Chicago Tribune in Regenstein in autumn 2014.

Tips for assessing fair use in teaching materials

In celebration of Fair Use Week, the University of Chicago Library is sharing tips for assessing fair use and understanding copyright.

Fair Use icon: A scale showing a copyright symbol and mortarboard in balance

© 2008 Michael Brewer & ALA Office of Information Technology Policy, CC BY-NC-SA 3.0

In order to determine whether fair use applies to materials being considered for classroom use, instructors should take four factors into consideration:

  1. Purpose of the use: Materials should be used in class only for the purpose of serving the needs of specified educational programs.
  2. Nature of the work: Only those portions of the work relevant to the educational objectives of the course should be used in the classroom.
  3. Amount of the work: The amount of the work used should be related directly to the educational objectives of the course.
  4. Effect of the use on the market for the original: The instructor should consider whether the copying harms the market or sale of the copyrighted material.

Visit our Fair Use guide to learn more, and see how you can take advantage of fair use.

Final days: Library asks graduate and professional school students to complete survey by March 4

The University of Chicago Library is conducting a survey of all currently enrolled graduate and professional school students. This survey is being offered in partnership with Graduate Student Affairs, and the findings will be used to inform decisions about future University and Library services.

The survey was distributed by email on February 4. Graduate and professional school students, please check your email for a message from the University of Chicago Library with an individualized link to the survey. Participants who complete the survey will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for a number of prizes, including:

  • A dedicated faculty study at Regenstein Library or Crerar Library for one year.
  • Locker rental at Regenstein Library for one year.
  • Gift cards for Amazon.com, the Seminary Co-op, or the University of Chicago Bookstore.

Previous surveys conducted by the Library resulted in the implementation of the Library’s Scan and Deliver service, as well as the creation of new group study spaces in Regenstein Library. Results gathered from the Library’s last survey of graduate and professional school students, conducted in February 2010, are available online.

For more information or to report problems with the survey, please contact the project team by email at ithaka@lib.uchicago.edu.

New Library Director and University Librarian arrives on campus

Brenda Johnson

Brenda Johnson

Dear University of Chicago Faculty, Students and Staff,

As I begin my second week on campus, I would like to say how very happy I am to have arrived at the University of Chicago. The warm welcome I have received from so many of you in the last few days has made me feel immediately at home.

The University of Chicago’s status as one of the world’s premier academic and research institutions and its Library’s role in fueling intellectual inquiry and a transformative education are well known internationally. As the year unfolds, I look forward to learning much more about your work; about the ways you rely on the Library to support your research, teaching and study; and about the ways you see your needs evolving as you break new scholarly ground or advance in your education.

It will be my great pleasure to meet many more of you and to discuss these matters with you in the coming months.

With warm regards,

Brenda L. Johnson
Library Director and University Librarian
The University of Chicago Library

Exhibits Coal Swamp Fossils: The Robert Springfield Fossil Collection – new web exhibit

Calamites sp.

A branch of Calamites sp. that shows multiple spore producing cones of a sphenopsid.

A web version is now available of the current Crerar Library exhibit: Coal Swamp Fossils: The Robert Springfield Fossil Collection.  The physical exhibition, consisting of 16 fossils, is on view in the Crerar Library’s First Floor Reading Room for the 2014-2015 academic year.  It was curated by Benjamin Rhind, University of Chicago Laboratory Schools high school senior.

Exhibit Description: This collection of fossils was collected by Robert Springfield in mines in southern Tennessee and northern Alabama.  They contain many fossils from the Carboniferous Period, ranging from 330,000,000 -300,000,000 BCE.  The period was defined by the large deposits of coal beds that it left behind.  This massive amount of coal was because of the development of bark bearing trees and the fact that a lower sea level during this age left behind large lowland, swampy forests.  Plant life during the period was diverse, and although this collection of fossils contains several different genera and species, they all fit into one of three categories: sphenopsids, lycopods and pteridosperms.

The University of Chicago Library is grateful to the Springfield family for their gift of fossil specimens, which brings unique materials to the Library’s collections.  The Robert Springfield Fossil Collection is on loan from the Library’s Special Collections Research Center.

Curators: Ashley Locke Gosselar, Laura Alagna, Brittan Nannenga, and Eileen Ielmini

Associated web exhibit: lib.uchicago.edu/e/webexhibits/istepoutofmyself/

“I Step Out of Myself”: Portrait Photography in Special Collections highlights outstanding examples of fine art and photojournalistic portraiture held in the Special Collections Research Center. Displaying selections rarely on public view, the exhibition will draw from the work of a varied group of 20th-century photographers: Eva Watson Schütze, Carl Van Vechten, Layle Silbert, Mildred Mead, Yousuf Karsh, Alice Boughton, Joan Eggan, and Tina Modotti. From the romance of Schütze’s portraits of domestic life at the turn of the 20th century, to the stylized glamour of Van Vechten’s celebrity photographs in the 1930s, to the unflinching presentation of raw poverty in Mildred Mead’s portraits of residents of Chicago slums in the 1950s, “I Step Out of Myself” explores the wide range of technique, style, subject matter, and emotion found in modern photographic portraiture.

Something’s Brewing web exhibit launched

Something’s Brewing. The Art, Science and Technology of Beer Brewing 

(an online exhibit)

There is more to brewing than barley and hops. Beverages have been brewed from beans, oatmeal, honey, molasses, rye, wheat, old bread, and even whole chickens. Ancient Egyptians, medieval monks, and Chicago city founders have all practiced the art of brewing.

The Crerar Library exhibit, Something’s Brewing: The Art, Science and Technology of Brewing, was originally shown January 8 – March 31, 2007 and explored the development of brewing, from the ancient Sumerians’ rice-based beverages to the rise and fall of the Chicago brewing industry.  The Library is pleased to present a web version of the exhibit, including links to original works in digital online libraries where available.  

This exhibit was curated by Andrea Twiss-Brooks and Debra Werner.  The images and text were adapted for the web exhibit by Jennifer Hart and Andrea Twiss-Brooks.

Final phase of Regenstein B Level flooring replacement begins

Beginning over winter interim, the Library will commence the final phase of a project to replace cracked and worn floor tile throughout the Regenstein B Level bookstacks. This phase replaces floor tile in the main aisles; flooring in the compact shelving book aisles was completed over the summer. Work will take place between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and will involve noise and dust at times, as well as limiting access to some aisles.

The work has been planned to cause as little disruption as possible, but some main aisles will be inaccessible for two to three days at a time during all building hours. Most book aisles will remain accessible throughout the project, although users may need to use alternate routes to reach book aisles at times. A small number of book aisles will be inaccessible for short periods, but no individual book aisle will be inaccessible for more than two working days.

To request a book from an inaccessible book aisle, visit the 1st Floor Circulation Desk. Staff will page material as soon as the aisle re-opens; users will receive a notice as soon as items are available for pickup at Circulation.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience while this important work is completed. For updated information about this project, visit lib.uchicago.edu/e/reg/using/floorplans.

Alert Fall quarter loans to quarterly borrowers automatically extended to April 3

Items checked out by current quarterly borrowers with privileges in good standing and due January 9 will be automatically renewed by the Library for winter quarter. As of December 18, all such items will have a new due date of April 3, 2015. No action by borrowers is necessary.

The automatic renewal is being performed because the functionality to manually renew items is temporarily unavailable in the Catalog. The Library is working to restore this functionality as soon as possible.

Users may view a list of all items out, including current due dates, via My Account.

For assistance, please contact Circulation online or visit a Library circulation desk.

A “do file” will be provided for easy access to the commands as well as a handout for keeping track of all of them. The last part of the workshop will bring it all together, moving beyond the basics, blending the commands to create regressions and graphics. 

Be prepared for a fast paced class, some familiarity with Statistics or programming is helpful, but not necessary. 

Please feel free to bring your laptop with STATA installed to follow along. If you want to attend and follow along, but do not have STATA on your computer – then take a look the virtual lab commander is for you. If you need help setting it up, come to the Techbar at least 15 min. before the workshop and the staff can help.
