( Spring 2010 ) UNIVERSITY LIBRARY

THE COMMONS ( connect.collaborate )


( From the University Librarian )

Dear Friends, It is exciting to work on our third issue of the Commons. We have had positive reactions from donors, library administrators, and faculty. Thank you for your encouraging words. Library personnel do so many wonderful things that it is hard to decide on what should go into each issue.

Idol, chair of the Library Advisory Board, and Patsy and Ronny Turner, who have chosen to support the library in memory of their daughter. I love working with colleagues like Dr. Garner Dewey, Associate Dean of the College of Fine and Applied Arts, who took the wonderful photographs for our cover; Marilia Antunez, Health Sciences Librarian, who is finishing a prestigious competitive leadership program through the Association of Research Libraries; Susan Jennings, Lead Desk Services Librarian, who has been recognized by the American Library Association as an emerging leader; and Sue Hisle, Library Specialist, who won one of the University’s Outstanding Staff Awards. Also, I thoroughly enjoy Appalachian’s students including the Library’s student employees and Student Government officers.

In this issue, we focus first on the Nicholas Erneston Music Library and its special collections and services. I love visiting the Hayes School of Music and our Music Library because of all the energy in the building. Students are always there practicing, rehearsing, studying, and generally enjoying what they are learning, their faculty, and each other. The Music Library has a number of needs including a larger facility so we can better accommodate all of these wonderful students. We also highlight the beginning of the Library’s official exchange with Fudan University’s Library in Shanghai. Megan Johnson tells of her learning and adventures, as we welcome Weihua Shi in April for her visit of five months. Besides her work here at Appalachian, Ms. Shi will be able to attend the American Library Association meeting in Washington, D.C., and visit a number of other academic libraries in North Carolina. We will share highlights of her visit in the next issue.

I am grateful to each of you for making my work so rewarding, and I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events.

Mary Reichel with freshman Karla Moreira and Lead Information Literacy Librarian Kelly McBride.

( Nicholas Erneston Music Library )

Many people are not aware of the fact that there is an important branch of the University Library located in the Broyhill Music Center that serves hundreds of students and faculty. The Nicholas Erneston Music Library supports the Mariam Cannon Hayes School of Music and the general Appalachian State University community by providing a wide variety of materials, from printed sources such as books and scores to audiovisual materials of every imaginable type. “There is a lot of talk in the library world about moving beyond ‘the book,’” but music libraries have never been as tied to printed resources as others,” says Music Librarian Gary Boye. “We’ve had electronic resources since the days of turntables.” The primary means of listening in the Music Library today are CDs, DVDs, and other digital sources, including the most comprehensive streaming audio collection in the state, with subscriptions to Naxos Music Library, Classical Music Library, the Database of Recorded American Music, Smithsonian Global Sound and others.

“Our number one problem is space—space for the collection, space for users, space for our hard-working staff and student assistants.” - Gary Boye

This “virtual world” has become especially important as the space restrictions in the current facility create more problems. “Our number one problem is space—space for the collection, space for users, space for our hard-working staff and student 4

assistants,” says Boye. “The stacks are over 80% full and filling up with virtually no more room to expand. With the number of music majors approaching 500, we just can’t continue to cram everyone and everything into this space. I am excited that the library is currently a part of a planned expansion of the music building.” While physically separate from Belk, the Music Library still relies on the larger collection. “We have a lot of independence and perform many of the same functions that the main library does, but we are still heavily dependent on them,” he says. “We would have a much smaller and less interesting collection without their help and the generous support of a large number of donors.” These donors include Nicholas Erneston, whose endowment to the Music Library collection has enabled the purchase through the years of large complete works sets and the beginnings of the DVD collection. One of the largest gifts came from Mary Schwieger, widow of Kansas City Orchestra conductor Hans Schwieger, close friend of former Appalachian Chancellor Frank Borkowski. The rare scores in this collection form the basis of a Special Collection in music on the fourth floor of Belk. In 2006, the scores of local composer Tui St. George Tucker were acquired by the University and will also reside in Belk’s Special Collections. “I think it is important for a music library to have some rare materials in order to teach the history of music more


MUSIC LIBRARY ( Nicholas Erneston Music Library )

effectively,” Boye notes. “You can look at photos of a composer’s manuscript and imagine what the original is like, but it’s a completely different sense of history when you’re faced with the real thing.” The Music Library hopes to expand its Special Collections, providing opportunities for research in a wide range of music. Boye, who is an associate professor, came to Appalachian in July 2000 after graduating from Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He began working in libraries as a graduate student at Duke in 1993 and after completing his Ph.D. in 1995 worked as a library staff member in a variety of jobs, completing an M.S. in Library Science at Chapel Hill in 2000. Along with his other duties, Boye conducts research that combines several periods and styles. “Basically, I study the guitar, an instrument that I’ve played now

for over 40 years,” he notes. “I think a lot of people view the guitar as a 20th century invention since it was so popular then, but it actually goes back to 13th-century Spain, and was widely popular through the 16th19th centuries.” His Web page, begun in 1995, contains a list of printed and manuscript sources for the guitar and lute from 1470 to 1800 (http://www.library. appstate.edu/music/lute/home.html). “It’s an ongoing project,” he says. “No one has ever had a complete list of all of these materials, especially after 1600. I receive e-mails from people all over the world about the page.” The combination of librarianship, scholarship, musicianship and teaching keeps the job interesting, “It’s great to be able to teach some, but not be completely overwhelmed by it,” Boye concludes. “I think my knowledge of the library helps in my teaching and I know it helps in my research, but I really think it works both ways:

I’m a better music librarian because I have an idea of what it’s like to teach, perform and do research.” Along with the need for additional space, the music library hopes to raise funds from private sources for a named distinguished professorship, to be held by the music librarian, and for an endowment which would provide a continuing source of income to purchase additional materials.

( From the Chair of the Library Advisory Board )

I

was honored to accept the position of Library Advisory Board chair at our September meeting and look forward to leading such an outstanding group of library advocates, all of whom are dedicated to increasing important resources for the library. The library’s mission offers us a never-ending opportunity to lend support to librarians as they perform their duties and affords us the chance to help build its collections. As new programs are established and older ones stretched to meet new challenges and demands, the Board stands ready to find both ways and means to assist in the effort to build or strengthen holdings. Just as we take pride in our new facility, we should be working towards boasting of holdings in all disciplines and programs. As a patron of Appalachian’s library since my high school days, I have confronted both its limitations and riches. Those limitations resulted largely from inadequate funding, a continuing challenge but one we can address by putting pressure in the right place. And by opening our checkbooks! The many programs and services of the library, reaching as they do from the earliest of readers to the elders in our midst, from hobbyists to dedicated scholars, from job-seekers to NASCAR buffs, from sleepy to bright-eyed students, make it central to everything ASU undertakes. The Board feels privileged to be part of those undertakings. In addition to general support for the library, the Board has established a way in which we can help our student employees. These students are invaluable to the work of the library and many of them are continually seeking funds in order to continue their education. The Board had been discussing these needs for several years and, in fact, has already been able to award six scholarships during the past two years as a result of special gifts. I am excited to report that the Board voted at the fall meeting to establish an endowment that, when complete, will provide a continuous source of funds for annual awards.

The Board invites everyone in the Appalachian family to join its push to help Belk Library and Information Commons, along with the Music Library, meet the needs of students and faculty as it positions itself to become a leading regional resource.

FUDAN ( From Appalachia to Shanghai )

Megan Johnson, Public Relations and Research Librarian, is the first library

faculty member at Appalachian to travel to Fudan University in Shanghai, China, as part of a new library exchange program established in May 2008. Johnson spent five weeks at the University in the fall of 2009. For the second part of the exchange, Weihua Shi, head of the administrative office and secretary for the university librarian at the Fudan University Library, arrived in March to April and will be in residence at Belk Library for five months. In addition to her work at Appalachian, she will attend the American Library Association meeting in Washington, D.C., and visit a number of other academic libraries in the state.

Fudan and Appalachian already had a 14-year relationship through the William R. Holland Fellows for Business Study. Each year, twelve students from each institution analyze business case studies in small groups through a semester-long class called International Business in China. In recent years, the partnership has grown to include several additional programs, and the library exchange is a result of this expanding relationship.

“Being an off campus student I have received the services I need when I visit the library and off site. I can’t imagine completing my degree without the ease of access to materials.” Student comment from LibQual+ 2008 Survey

The exchange is focusing on the exploration of librarianship in an international context and sharing ideas about library services and scholarly communication. “This was a life changing experience,” Johnson said, “I learned so much, not only about the Fudan Libraries and Chinese academic librarianship, but about Chinese culture, communication, about how the expectations of users can be quite different in other countries. She continued, “These exchanges lead to better support of international students and faculty at our home campuses and also spark global exchange of ideas and enhanced cultural understanding.”

Weihua Shi, Megan Johnson and Zhang Jingbo, Deputy Director of East China Normal University, October 2009.

Fudan, one of the top five comprehensive universities in China, is highly ranked in the humanities, social sciences, medicine, mathematics, bioscience, chemical science and physical sciences. The University has four campuses (Handan, Fenglin, Zhangjiang, and Jiangwan) with a total enrollment of 26,792 resident full-time degree candidates. 7


( From Pasty and Ronny Turner )

Appalachian has held a special place in our hearts since 1964 when Patsy began her college career in Boone. A young man with a doting heart, Ronny traveled many miles each weekend to woo his coed sweetheart. As our romance for one another blossomed those years ago, so did our love for Appalachian State University and the Mountaineer experience. We were married years later and blessed with an ambitious and intelligent daughter, Nicki, who grew up with her parents’ love for ASU in her heart.

As a senior in high school, Nicki received a $500 academic scholarship to Appalachian seemingly out of the blue. She felt honored to receive this scholarship and, as parents, we were delighted. Nicki made the decision to attend ASU and the scholarship she earned remained a source of pride for us all.

Patsy and Ronny Turner

Truly we fell in love with Appalachian through the eyes of our daughter. Nicki came to ASU as a bright-eyed, ambitious young student in 1988 and remained a Mountaineer in spirit for the rest of her life. Whenever Nicki would talk about her Appalachian experience, it was clear to us this university in the mountains was exactly where she was meant to be. Being in Boone gave Nicki life in a way we had rarely seen before. First through our own love story and then through our daughter’s joy, we knew Appalachian would always mean a great deal to us. In 1999 our daughter passed away. Losing Nicki changed our lives. It changed our hope for our daughter’s future and our perception of what our own future would be. Nicki’s death made us consider if

others’ futures might also be impacted by her life. Ultimately our thoughts about the future—ours and others’—brought us back to Appalachian. In 2009, the kind people of Belk Library invited us to become more involved with Appalachian and asked Patsy to serve as a new member of the Library Advisory Board. At Patsy’s second board meeting, a library student-employee delivered a thankful speech about the scholarship she received through the library. Working in the library several years as an undergraduate, this remarkable young woman had changed her career plans based on her experiences in the stacks as well as the library scholarship she earned. As this young woman spoke, we knew in an instant how we could honor our daughter’s memory. We wanted to support other young people working for their education. We wanted to create a scholarship in Nicki’s name. Losing our daughter taught us life is fleeting; remembering Nicki years later during a heartfelt talk about student scholarships taught us Nicki’s legacy is not lost. Remembering Nicki encourages us to give back to the university that meant so much to her. We can think of no better place to remember our daughter (who loved to read!) than the library of her favorite university. We hope you will join us in impacting students’ lives by supporting Belk Library. To us, it has made quite a difference. Patsy and Ronny Turner Blowing Rock, NC Appalachian Library Advisory Board


SCHOLARSHIP ( Library Student Employee Scholarship & Endowment Donors )

I

n August 2009, Library Student Employee Scholarships were awarded for the second year. Three $500 stipends for library student employees were sponsored by library supporters: Bill & Hughlene Frank Michael Wilder & Melissa Cain Walter & Jane Davis The Library Student Employee Scholarships were created to support the education of the 150 student assistants who perform vital library tasks. The Library awarded the first three $500 scholarships for Fall semester 2008. To qualify, students are recommended by their supervisor and complete an application with a brief essay on how working in the library has impacted their education. This year’s scholarship winners are Alexander (Xan) Thomas, Channing Shor and Crystal Houk.

In recognition of their donation, the sponsors of the Library Student Employee Scholarships receive an artist remarqued print showing Belk Library and Information Commons in the evening. Library benefactors Don and Pat Phillips commissioned Ashe County artist Stephen Shoemaker to create this limited-edition print from his original painting. For more information on the Library Student Employee Scholarship, or the special-edition prints, contact Lindsay Apple, M.Ed., Director of Development at (828) 262-8413 or applelk@appstate.edu.

( Endowments at Belk Library and Information Commons )

Endowed Library Funds for Collection Development The library strives to develop collections which serve the research endeavors of our students, faculty, staff and community. Endowed funds and endowments for collection development are necessary for the continued support of established collections and new support for collections needed for emerging academic programs. Funds to acquire, catalog and preserve these existing and future collections are vital for library relevance in the support of the academic mission of Appalachian State University. There are many established priorities for collection endowments and donors are invited to work with the library to develop endowments in areas of interest.

University Archives Endowment The University Archives is the repository for all Appalachian State University official publications and records. These materials document the history and culture of the university from its founding to the present. The library is seeking a $100,000 named endowment that will support our commitment to the organization and preservation of our university’s historical materials and will fund the acquisition of new materials to document the history of Appalachian State University so that they are available for public use in perpetuity.

LIBRARY NEWS ( Points of Interest )

J

ames and Rebekah both worked in the Library in the 1990s as student assistants in Materials Processing. When Rebekah completed her tasks, she would often help James. After he graduated, he moved to Colorado for an internship for several months, then moved to Carthage, NC. When Rebekah was about to graduate, she emailed James to see how he was doing. The relationship was reestablished and they were married in July 2000. Ten years and four children later, they are still very happy. “I am glad I applied for the library job,” says Rebekah. “It was a life-changing decision.” Do you have a personal story about meeting your partner in the library, either as a patron or student assistant? If so, we would like to hear about it and feature your story in a future issue of the Commons. Please contact Megan Johnson at johnsnm@appstate.edu or write her at Belk Library, PO Box 32026, Appalachian State University, Boone, NC 28608. James and Rebekah Perry with their family.

Grant from the NC Humanities Council Belk Library and Information Commons faculty has received a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, for “Sexuality and Gender Identity in Appalachian Communities.” The project documents the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) presence in Appalachian North Carolina and its effect on regional character and social development. Appalachia has experienced increased numbers of LGBT residents interested in creating visible LGBT community spaces eliciting differing responses from their neighbors. Marker points indicative of a growing LGBT visibility include welcoming faith congregations, openly gay politicians, LGBT-inclusive and -specific newspapers, organizations, and public social spaces. These markers also draw additional LGBT individuals to the region and create an atmosphere that allows them to contribute openly to the LGBT subculture while LGBT natives are becoming more visible. Yet, traditional attitudes, as indicated by invisibility of LGBT populations in many counties, continue to exist in many Appalachian counties. This juxtaposition creates urban Appalachian oases amid rural communities, despite vibrant albeit small LGBT subcultures. Project components include an oral history project, a public symposium set for June 12th, and contribution to a national interactive website. The completed oral histories will be donated to Belk Library’s W.L. Eury Appalachian Collection, providing a platform for future research. The project will include interviews of members of the LGBT community, members of organizations that support that community, as well as community members and others with a story of how mountain life affects the LGBT experience. Individuals interested in participating in the project or those seeking more information should contact Kathy Staley in Belk Library at staleykl@appstate.edu or (828) 262-6724, or Michael Howell from the Department of Social Work at howellml@appstate.edu or (828) 262-7682. 13


( Lucky 8 & Carol and Mary, New Outdoor Sculptures )

The Library’s growing collection of outdoor sculpture has two new additions

commissioned by Library benefactor Irwin “Ike” Belk of Charlotte. Both were installed in Fall 2009. “Lucky 8,” located in the park between the Library and the College Street parking deck, is a replica of a 16 x 12-foot sculpture created to commemorate the 2008 Olympics held in Beijing, China. The work reflects Mr. Belk’s long history with the Olympics as one of the founders of the International Olympic Committee and chairman of the U.S. Olympic Committee for North Carolina. The piece was created by North Carolina artist Jon Hair who is well known for his large-scale depictions of Olympic athletes and university mascots. The original is on display in the Beijing International Sculpture Park.

“Lucky 8” by Jon Hair

Hair notes that the work represents old China entering the 21st century as one ring seems to be pulling another out of the ground. The sculpture continuously changes color due to a special optical paint that was developed by NASA. At certain

“Carol and Mary” by Gregory Johnson 14

times of day, the sun casts a shadow of a figure eight, and walking through it brings good luck, Hair says. The second sculpture, “Carol and Mary,” was created in honor of Mr. Belk’s two granddaughters and is located near the entrance to the Library. This life size bronze sculpture depicts two college girls seated on a bench with books, book bag and back pack. The artist, Gregory Johnson of Cumming, GA, boasts works in more than 100 museum, university, corporate and private collections. He has won several prestigious awards for his art and was one of three finalists for the War Dog Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Mr. Belk has been a major supporter of Appalachian for many years. The old and new libraries were named for his wife, Carol Grotnes Belk; following the opening of the new building, the old library was renamed Anne Belk Hall in memory of his daughter-in-law. In addition, Belk Residence Hall bears his name and he funded the large Yosef sculpture on Rivers Street. Mr. Belk also commissioned the mural on the walls of the atrium in the new library that were created by Brenda Councill, along with the “Dance of Learning” sculpture by Richard Hallier in the center of the atrium, and artist De L’esprie’s two works, “Storytime” and “Anything But Homework”, on the stone wall between the Library and the University Bookstore. Councill and Hallier are both renowned local artists.
