Message from the Deans Through 2014, KU Libraries continued the work of advancing our strategic directions, which directly support KU’s Bold Aspirations and seek to promote knowledge creation, interdisciplinary scholarship and research productivity through our renowned collections and services. The year was met with countless achievements and notable contributions, while still reminding us that libraries exist in a steady state of change. We began our roles as interim co-deans in late December, following the departure of Dean Lorraine J. Haricombe. Dean Haricombe’s visionary approach and dynamic leadership positioned KU Libraries at the forefront of the rapidly changing world of library and information science. Though 2015 will be a transitional year, we have dedicated our careers to this institution and are thrilled to move the organization forward during this interim period. This review illustrates KU Libraries’ commitment to serving the evolving needs of scholars, students and faculty members to ensure success in their academic endeavors. Your continued support makes possible the work we do to advance research, teaching and learning in Kansas and beyond. Thank you,
Kent Miller and Mary Roach Interim Co-Deans, KU 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.

Undergraduate support Class instruction, individual consultations and reference assistance are integral aspects of the librariesâ€™ engagement efforts with undergraduate students. Undergraduate support advances academic endeavors across a variety of disciplines and works to ensure student success. In 2014, the libraries heightened this commitment by dedicating two new positions to enhance undergraduate support. As part of the librariesâ€™ Center for Undergraduate Initiatives & Engagement, Undergraduate Learning Specialists Stephanie Gamble and Michelle Reed work to coordinate and facilitate library instruction and further develop the overall undergraduate experience.

Providing access for KU alumni ON THE ROAD:
KU Libraries & KU Alumni Association events partnership JANUARY 2013 – PRESENT
Nearly three years ago, KU Libraries and the KU Alumni Association developed a partnership in an effort to share renowned collections while significantly growing the base of support for the libraries. Our collaborative efforts have taken us 25,000 miles to meet more than 2,000 alumni from nearly 40 cities. Additionally, this expanding partnership has allowed us to offer KU Alumni Association members access to more than 50,000 magazines, journals and index records—library resources for alumni and friends who wish to continue their professional and personal development.

John Gould’s ornithological collection
KU Libraries recently completed the digitization of one of the world’s most valuable collections of bird illustrations. The 19th century books of John Gould feature images of birds from around the world. Gould’s work came to KU in the early 1950s and became one of the original collections of the Kenneth Spencer Research Library.

Along with the published books, the Gould collection includes more than 2,000 manuscript drawings, watercolors and preliminary art for the books. The content of the books and manuscripts— about 6,000 images total—are now available online for anyone to access. The digitization project was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. View the distinguished collection at lib.ku.edu/gould.
THE LEARNING STUDIO: Study and rejuvenate
Images from the Campus Arts Week photo booth event in Anschutz Library on April 8, 2015.
The dynamic, student-centered space in Anschutz Library has new leadership to grow this hub of undergraduate research and learning at KU. Sofia Leung, learning studio coordinator, joined KU Libraries in April 2015 following her role as assistant librarian at Seattle University. Leung’s goals and aspirations for the Learning Studio rise in equal measure to the energy of the bustling space. In her new role, she hopes to enhance the studio’s identity through programing and services for undergraduate students.
Leung is excited for the opportunity to collaborate with new departments, while building on existing partnerships, to allow for necessary programmatic expansion in the space. “We are continuously working to assess how the space is being used in order to make improvements to meet students’ needs,” said Leung. “Student input and campus-wide collaborations are the perfect combination to strengthen the resources and usability of the space.” The Learning Studio is evolving into a one-stop shop for students, offering unique opportunities for students to collaborate with their peers, study and find support for their academic work.

Brown v. Board anniversary commemorated at KU Libraries In recognition of the 60th anniversary of Brown v. the Board of Education, KU Libraries hosted events honoring the landmark civil rights ruling. The events included an exhibition opening and a symposium featuring guest speakers and plaintiffs from the 1954 Supreme Court case. The exhibition Lasting Impact: Brown v. the Board of Education highlighted materials and artifacts from the court case that have been preserved in the libraries’ Kansas Collection. Housed in the Kenneth Spencer Research Library, the Kansas Collection preserves a wealth of materials documenting the African-American experience in Kansas, including the history surrounding Topeka’s pivotal battle against segregation. The exhibition opening included a presentation by KU professors Shirley Hill and John Rury examining the graduation gap for AfricanAmericans since the case. “The Legacies & Unfinished Business of BvB, 2.0” was the second part of the suite of events. The daylong symposium brought scholars and civil rights experts together to discuss the effects of the Supreme Court ruling and how it was enacted. Among the guest speakers were Columbia University Professor Theodore Shaw and Latino rights advocate David Hinojosa, as well as plaintiffs from the case and members of the Brown family.

Naming gift for departing Dean Lorraine Haricombe
A mid-December farewell reception included an element of surprise as KU Libraries announced the naming of the “Haricombe Gallery” in recognition of the nine years of leadership by Dean Lorraine J. Haricombe, who departed KU for a new position as vice provost and director of libraries at the University of Texas at Austin. The Haricombe Gallery in Watson Library is home to the KU Libraries’ exhibition program. The program, created under Haricombe’s guidance, promotes the creative scholarship of the KU campus community and highlights the benefits of interdisciplinary collaboration. The naming was made possible by a consortium of donors, who contributed gifts in honor of Haricombe.
“In the past eight years, we have seen significant growth in the libraries’ fundraising efforts as a result of Dean Haricombe’s leadership,” said Gerald Lillian, chair of the KU Libraries Board of Advocates, a group of more than 30 friends and benefactors who work with the dean to ensure the libraries have the fiscal resources needed to support the campus. “I was deeply touched and humbled by the announcement of the Haricombe Gallery,” said Haricombe. “I have had so many joyous moments in the gallery, a space that serves as the intellectual commons and as social gathering space at KU. To say that I was surprised by the announcement is an understatement; I was wholly overwhelmed by the naming of the gallery in my honor.”
EXHIBIT HIGHLIGHT: Contested American Identities In early 2015, KU Libraries opened the first exhibition in the newly named Haricombe Gallery. The exhibition, Contested American Identities: KU Scholars Address the Challenge, took an interdisciplinary look at identity and the intersecting categories of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality and ability. 10 | KU LIBRARIES A NN UAL REV IEW 2014–15
Preserving history for all Jayhawks, now and in the future Thanks to generous support from Scott and Lisa Ritchie, KU Libraries are proud to digitize films from the University Archives. The rich historical films feature decades of memories from halftime performances to commencements. The Ritchies, like other alumni, have reminisced over university yearbooks and images from the University Archives at KU Libraries. While these images make up the historical fabric of all Jayhawks, they cannot quite capture the real-life element produced from film. The Ritchies explained the ability to ensure preservation of the valuable collections was a driving factor in their decision to make a gift to KU Libraries. Regarding their KU experiences,

Lisa remarked, “We had a unique experience at the University of Kansas and wish for others to be able to reflect on their fond memories as well.”
Former librarian bequeaths $1 million to Kenneth Spencer Research Library On a visit to the Kenneth Spencer Research Library, you would be hard-pressed to find someone who did not know the work of Sandy Mason, an outstanding librarian and the first at Spencer. Alexandra “Sandy” Mason (1931-2011) was a distinguished librarian who served the University of Kansas from 1957 until her retirement in 1999.
Mason built special collections of extraordinary research value, guided generations of scholars and librarians and was a leader in the Rare Books and Manuscript Section of the American Library Association. “Sandy believed viscerally in the importance of books and libraries, both the intellectual value of their content and cultural value of their physical selves,” said Bill Mitchell, a longtime friend and colleague of Mason. “I think Sandy wore a special kind of trifocals for she seemed to be able to focus on the past, present and future.” Mason died in June 2011, leaving behind a generous estate gift to benefit KU Libraries, and specifically, the Spencer Research Library. The gift, a charitable remainder unitrust, was transferred to the KU Endowment Association, in the amount of $1.03 million.
Mason’s gift will ensure staffing to advance the goal of building, describing and making available the collections of the Spencer Research Library, particularly its outstanding medieval and early modern British and European manuscripts.

KU Libraries announce naming of Shulenburger Office of Scholarly Communication & Copyright
In October 2015, KU Libraries announced the naming of the “Shulenburger Office of Scholarly Communication & Copyright” in honor of former KU Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor David Shulenburger. The naming recognized a major gift from Shulenburger, as well as his role in laying the foundation for the open access movement and for the university’s adoption of an open access policy. The gift supports programming and operations for expanding open or public access for scholarly communication at KU and affords KU Libraries an opportunity to support innovation and excellence. The inaugural Shulenburger Award for Innovation & Advocacy in Scholarly Communication was presented to Professors Marc Greenberg and Town Peterson, two distinguished open access advocates who are committed to carrying on Shulenburger’s work.
“During my time as provost at the University of Kansas, I made a commitment to expanding open access at KU, and I am pleased with the outstanding progress. The only way to ensure continued growth and continuity of the open access movement is through an endowment.” – David Shulenburger | FORMER UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS PROVOST AND EXECUTIVE VICE CHANCELLOR

ONE UNIVERSITY OPEN ACCESS FUND REACTIVATED FOR THIRD YEAR The Offices of KU Provost, KU Vice Chancellor for Research & Graduate Studies, and KUMC Executive Vice Chancellor and Vice Chancellor for Research renewed support in 2014 for a $25,000 author’s fund to encourage open access scholarship at all KU and KUMC campuses.
The “One University” Open Access Publishing Fund supports KU faculty, staff, and student authors who make published research available through the more than 8,000 open access journals. Open access is the policy of making all research produced by university authors available to society at large through an accessible, online database instead of limiting the work to academic journal subscribers. In 2009, KU became the first public university in the United States to institute a faculty-initiated open access policy in regard to research published in peer-review journals.
Ada Emmett elected to serve on SPARC steering sommittee Ada Emmett, head of KU Libraries’ Shulenburger Office of Scholarly Communication & Copyright, has been elected to serve a three year term on the steering committee for the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC). As a committee member, Emmett will provide strategic advice and guidance to the SPARC staff. Emmett has been an active participant and collaborator in scholarly communication activities at KU, playing a leadership role as KU became the first public university in the United States to adopt a faculty-led, campus-wide open access policy. The overarching goal of open access is to provide global access to scholarly literature and research with unrestricted reuse of the content, including articles and data.
