Message from the Dean In 2013, KU Libraries endeavored to realign its organizational structure, identifying emerging and vital areas required by our new strategic directions. Throughout the process, our team worked diligently, drawing from peer institutional research, focus groups and more, always with an eye on KU’s Bold Aspirations, as well as our own strategic plan. Libraries exist in a steady state of change, and our new organizational structure is just the beginning of what is truly an evolution. Like the broader goals for KU defined in Bold Aspirations, our aims are ambitious. They are premised on the understanding that the libraries are responsible not only for the cultivation, discovery and dissemination of information, but also for facilitating learning, research and knowledge creation. By achieving these goals, we support and encourage outstanding research, teaching and learning across the university. This report illustrates how libraries and librarians ensure student success, contribute to the economic vitality of the state and encourage discoveries that change the world. We are grateful for the support you have provided along the way.

lorraine j. haricombe Dean of Libraries

Our Mission: KU Libraries advance discovery, innovation and learning for KU, for the state of Kansas and for a rapidly expanding community of world scholars. We equip our students for a knowledge-driven, global society and we support research and scholarly communication through collaborative opportunities at KU and beyond.


KU Libraries will be a strategic institutional asset that develops and delivers new methods of creating and supporting knowledge resources. We will enrich teaching and learning and fuel research at KU and worldwide.

First Year Experience KU Libraries continue to provide support to the university’s First-Year Experience program, and coordinator Jill Becker ensures colleagues within the libraries and across campus create a shared academic experience for new students. In 2013, the libraries played a key role in delivering the Common Book program. Featuring Pulitzer Prize winning author Timothy Egan’s history of the Dust Bowl, “The Worst Hard Time,” the program provided the opportunity for incoming freshman to connect over the text at lectures, book discussions and special events. Library programs included an exhibition in the Library Gallery and a presentation by KU Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History Donald Worster.

Gift provides students space for quiet contemplation

In 2013, the Beaham family gave $100,000 to KU Libraries to establish a new reading room in Anschutz Library, which opened on the first day of classes this fall. The room, named in honor of late KU alumnus David Beaham, provides a much-needed quiet retreat for private study. The reading room also features a favorite poem of David’s, and one that each Beaham family member can recite by heart: Rudyard Kipling’s “If—.”

Friends and family gathered in the Learning Studio at Anschutz Library last September to celebrate the opening. David’s wife, Tricia, explained that this gift was the perfect solution to combine his love for reading and his passion for KU: “There is no greater gift that we can give to others—and to society— than the gift of knowledge. Information instills in us an understanding and appreciation of our own views and those of others.”

the learning studio: Study and rejuvenate A dynamic, student-centered space in Anschutz Library, the Learning Studio is a hub of undergraduate research and learning at KU. But students need downtime, too—this home away from home provides opportunity for artistic expression, gatherings with friends and a bit of stress relief (thanks to a couple of canine partners).

We’ve continued to expand our partnership with KU Alumni Association over the past year and a half, co-hosting traveling events from three different program series in cities across Kansas and around the country. We have met more than 1,500 Jayhawks at 25 events—a valuable part of our ongoing efforts to significantly grow the base of support for KU Libraries. Last fall, we kicked off “An Evening with Naismith,” a traveling exhibition about the life and legacy of James Naismith, KU’s first basketball coach. His attention to the student experience, and to students’ intellectual and social growth, is something that KU Libraries are proud to carry forward today. Our conservator and curator of collections share their expertise in maintaining historic collections through the “Preserving Family History” program, offering ideas for preserving family heirloom photos, papers and news clippings. The traveling exhibition, “Wet or Dry: Our Prohibition Past,” features historical publications and photographs from KU’s Kansas Collection that pertain to the Prohibition Era.

Bridging campus and community KU Libraries partnered with Lawrence Public Library for Read Across Lawrence in both 2013 and 2014. Last fall, the program shared the KU Common Book, “The Worst Hard Time.” The 2014 selection was “Housekeeping” by Pulitzer Prize winner Marilynne Robinson, and the libraries hosted a series of events that spanned February and March, including an evening with the author in Lawrence. Together, the two library systems build and strengthen relationships across Lawrence, contributing to the intellectual equity—and economic bottom line—of the community and beyond.

Highlighting KU scholarship In spring 2014, KU Libraries launched the new Libraries Lecture Series to highlight the breadth of interdisciplinary research and creative work found on an expansive range of topics across campus. The series, hosted by KU Libraries’ Center for Community & Affiliate Initiatives, contributes to the campus culture of engaged scholarship by exploring the KU community’s use of library collections in the creation of internationally recognized research. The spring 2014 series featured four eminent KU scholars, Donald Worster, Anne Hedeman, Tim Miller and Lua Kamal Yuille.

“We are confident that the new Libraries Lecture Series will serve to raise the profile of interdisciplinary scholarship within and beyond the university.” – SARAH GOODWIN THIEL | HEAD OF KU LIBRARIES’ CENTER FOR COMMUNITY & AFFILIATE INITIATIVES

EXHIBIT HIGHLIGHT: Quantrill’s Raid on Lawrence

KU Libraries hosted a special exhibit commemorating the 150th anniversary of Quantrill’s Raid, in conjunction with “1863 Commemorate Lawrence,” a citywide initiative to recognize and honor Lawrence history. “Quantrill’s Raid on Lawrence: Stories of Loss, Destruction and Survival,” featured documents

on display from the Kansas Collection as well as a presentation by Sherry Williams, curator of collections at KU Libraries. Williams discussed the infamous raid from a historical perspective and in the context of resources in the libraries’ Kansas Collection.

Housed in the Kenneth Spencer Research Library, this collection preserves extensive materials and documents from the state’s history, much of which pertains to the mid-nineteenth century when Kansas was transitioning from a territory to a free state. The exhibition highlighted materials from the

Kansas Collection, including photographs and accounts of the raid’s victims as well as letters written by Quantrill himself. Above, left and right: Guests peruse materials at the August 22 exhibition opening. Above, center: Survivors attending the 50 th anniversary of Quantrill’s Raid, Lawrence, Kansas. August 21, 1913.

Securing the future of scholarly endeavors A $3.6 million estate gift from Stata Norton Ringle and David Ringle will support acquisition of books and manuscripts, and maintenance of existing collections at the Kenneth Spencer Research Library. The Ringles’ generosity will enable KU Libraries to further contribute to student success through classroom instruction, one-on-one research assistance and facilities that co-locate the resources students need to excel academically. The gift augments efforts to provide increased access to the libraries’ collections and expertise and will ultimately help to enhance teaching, research and learning on campus and around the world. In early 2014, KU Libraries acquired the last works of legendary author William S. Burroughs. Donated by James Grauerholz, executor of Burroughs’ literary estate, the collection includes the author’s final personal journals, type scripts and editing materials. The often-controversial Burroughs is perhaps best known as the author of “Naked Lunch” and numerous other novels. He lived in Lawrence from 1982 until his death in 1997, a time in which he wrote his final seven major books, created hundreds of artworks and worked on several multimedia projects. The donation of materials coincided with the centenary of his birth and adds to the libraries’ already noteworthy holdings of Burroughs materials. KU Libraries A nnual Review 2013–14




KU at the forefront of open access KU Libraries actively lead industrylevel scholarly communication activities, especially those related to open access—the policy of making all research authored by university authors available to society at large through an accessible, online database instead of limiting the work to academic journal subscribers. KU Libraries spearheaded open access activities at KU, playing a leadership role as the university became the first public university in the United States to adopt a campus-wide open access policy in 2009. The dean serves as the provost’s designate on implementing and supporting this policy at KU. KU renewed support for a $25,000 author’s fund to encourage open access scholarship at the Lawrence campus and the KU Medical Center in 2013. The “One University” Open Access Publishing Fund supports KU faculty and staff authors who make published research available through the more than 8,000 open access journals.

The libraries also support open access through the newly created Office of Scholarly Communication & Copyright. The office develops a robust and coordinated approach to scholarly publishing, scholarly communication and copyright services, and offers a physical, virtual and administrative “front door” to efforts in the libraries and on campus.

“Lorraine Haricombe’s deep experience in the library community, in the United States and internationally, combined with deep commitment to advancing the accessibility and utility of scholarly research, will help SPARC cover new ground in the coming years.” – HEATHER JOSEPH | EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, SCHOLARLY Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC)

Dean Haricombe visited the KPR station to be interviewed remotely by “CBC Radio: The Current” about the ethics of academic boycotts, May 2013.

NATIONAL CHAMPION FOR OPEN ACCESS KU Libraries continues to actively champion national public access policies.

KU Libraries Dean Lorraine Haricombe was recently elected to serve as chair of the Steering Committee for SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition). She has served as member of the committee, which provides strategic advice and guidance to the SPARC staff, since 2010.

Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition

KU librarians have been vocal advocates of the NIH Public Access Policy as well as the Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act (FASTR).

KU Libraries played an active role in forming the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI), a rapidly growing group of institutions dedicated to advancing the implementation of open access policies and practices on campus.


Supporting scholars in data curation As the nature of scholarship and research evolves, KU Libraries are enhancing accessibility and cohesion for an abundance of digital information. As part of her position as the libraries’ new data services librarian, Jamene Brooks-Kieffer provides support to

faculty and students alike on a wide range of data issues. Joining KU after years with the libraries at Kansas State, Brooks-Kieffer works to manage and preserve research data as part of the libraries’ collections as well as share that data with researchers of all disciplines across campus.
