The Dean’s Vision
KU Libraries’ Leadership
It is customary at the end of the year to reflect on our achievements and goals. In this annual review, I hope to share those reflections with KU Libraries’ supporters and advocates, as well as those who depend on our services and resources for their research and learning.
Highlights of national leadership positions held by Dean Haricombe and her administrative team:
Association of College & Research Libraries: Editor of RBM: A Journal of Rare Books, Manuscripts, and Cultural Heritage; Search committee for next executive director
This is a period of rapid change for our institution and for librarianship in general, which is sometimes both exhilarating and disruptive. We face substantial challenges that require us not only to lead and advocate for those we serve, but also to innovate, anticipating and developing the skills and organizational frameworks that will best support researchers in the future, while carefully managing the resources entrusted to us.
Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI) in North America: Coordinator Greater Western Library Alliance Board: Chair PubMed Central, US National Library of Medicine: Advisory
As I write this, we are embarking on a strategic planning process that will engage every level of our organization. I expect this process to yield a comprehensive, specific plan by summer of 2012 that will give us a clear roadmap to follow as we strive to meet these lofty objectives. I anticipate that we will need to take on new roles and perhaps new organizational forms and structures to meet the needs of 21st century scholars. I encourage you to engage with us now and throughout the coming year to learn more about what we’re doing and how you might lend your continued support and advocacy. Thank you.

Sharing knowledge is both our right and responsibility at KU, and providing open access to publicly-funded research is a key component of that vital work. Dean Haricombe and her colleagues at KU Libraries have provided essential leadership and support for open access, not only for KU but the world. Their efforts help give KU’s researchers and scholars truly global visibility and reach. - Chancellor Bernadette Gr ay-Little

University of Kansas became the first public institution in the United States to adopt a faculty open access policy. In July 2011, KU Dean of Libraries Lorraine Haricombe invited deans and directors at universities and colleges with established open access policies to discuss the possibility of organizing. The result of that call was the formation of the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI), a growing organization of 41 North American universities that collaborates and advocates on a global level.

his October, KU reaffirmed its commitment to making scholarly work widely available by signing the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities (www.berlin9.org) in conjunction with International Open Access Week. KU Libraries’ faculty and staff have provided strong leadership for the open access movement on campus, nationally and internationally, since 2009, when the

anus, the ancient Roman god whose two faces allow him to look into the future and the past simultaneously, could well be the patron of the modern academic library. Like Janus, KU Libraries must look to both the past and the future, balancing the work of preserving irreplaceable cultural treasures with bringing cutting-edge tools, resources and information to scholars.

Gould scientific bird illustrations (in progress). The John Gould manuscripts and publications form the centerpiece of the Ralph Ellis collection at Spencer, one of the best ornithological libraries in America for the period. Gould (1804-1881) was a notable 19th century British publisher of illustrated bird books. About 6,300 of Gould’s illustrations will be digitized. These projects would not have been possible without a creative mix of funding from state monies, private gifts, and grants. The Gould project received a $71,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities; the Sanborn Maps project received a $30,000 grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.

One such gift, comprised of author Theodore Sturgeon’s books and papers and valued at more than $600,000, established the definitive collection of his work at the Kenneth Spencer Research Library.

A gift of $250,000 from Marilyn Stokstad, the Judith Harris Murphy Distinguished Professor Emerita of Art History, has created a new interior reception space and remodeled the reading room at the Kenneth Spencer Research Library. The renovated space, to be named the Marilyn Stokstad Reading Room, will be more open, inviting and visible — key qualities at the library, where researchers spend most of their time in the reading room because the collections do not circulate and are preserved in closed stacks.
The project includes an enclosed consultation/teaching space for small groups within the reading room, a new central service point to make using the collections easier for visitors and a new interior entryway. Infrastructure improvements include more power outlets and upgraded wiring, essential to 21st century researchers, and new flooring. Construction began during the summer of 2011 and was completed in November.
