Imagine a new library.
you design it and we build it. Itâ€™s perfect. It enables you to take full advantage of your academic opportunities.
What do you imagine? This is the very question we asked students and faculty last year in a study of McKeldin Library.
We work every day to support the academic community, to envision a new library, to create the future. This report shares some of our accomplishments, goals and imaginings.

Authors are embracing new opportunities. Carla Peterson describes herself as a creature of the book. Her most recent work, Black Gotham, A Family History of African Americans in Nineteenth-Century New York City, took 11 years to research and write. As that process ended, Carla began to realize the limitations imposed by print and the publishing industry. She teamed up with the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities and in 2012 launched the Black Gotham Digital Archive. By publishing online, she found she could include scores of images. The digital format, with no end date, also allows her to revise, correct and add as she continues her research. She hopes to turn readers into writers by encouraging online submissions. “I want to invite other people to submit their own stories, so the Black Gotham story can just grow and grow and grow.” Increasingly book vendors provide options that allow us to purchase e-books instead of print when both are available. But Carla can’t imagine a day when e-books are the standard. “Not in my lifetime,” she says. “There’s no substitute for holding a book. Books have a feel, they’ve got a smell.”
Print still dominates We purchase 85% of new books in print format. 15% e-books 2

Imagine what a journal Increasingly journals will be free and open. In a world where information is free and widely available, Amanda Hawk envisions future scholars using journals to make greater connections. Now often restricted by publishers’ pay walls—and a library’s ability to break through them by paying subscription and licensing fees— scholars may be working at a disad– vantage. Many argue that the academy can only transform by changing the journal publishing model. “Learning more about open access expands the potential for sharing ideas,” Amanda says. Amanda understands potential challenges: scholars in certain disciplines could lose credibility or publishers could lose profits. As a master’s student in both history and library science, however, she also sees the benefits of embracing a new journal model in the future.

Imagine what a librarian “We’re freeing content from its carriers.”
We’re putting the pieces together. As higher education changes, librarians require ever-changing skills. That’s why we introduced a hiring initiative that matches recent post-master’s professionals with two-year mission-critical positions. The new hires—three this year—test ideas, develop programs and push boundaries. They’re helping us advance in priority areas. Karl Nilsen, for example, collaborates with a specialized team of librarians who advise and assist faculty with data management, curation, and long-term preservation. Henry Borchers converts audio and visual media into digital files , “freeing them,” he says “from their carriers” such as cassettes, LPs and vinyl records. The three push their own boundaries, too. “In the past, people knew what it meant to be a librarian. There were set duties and expectations,” says Hilary Thompson, who works with a team to create services to make it easier to access our collections. “I never thought I’d be learning to code, but now I am.” “We’re actually pretty good,” Karl says, “at reinventing ourselves.”

“I have of opportu a lot nit make chang y to es.”
“We’re applying traditional library science skills to new areas.”
Ahead of the curve.
Imagine what a library Students are helping us see the possibilities. Graduate architecture students imagine a very different McKeldin Library. For starters, they’d like to see a building designed for people rather than for books. When the library was constructed in 1958, few could have imagined the digitized and downloadable world we inhabit today.

“Information is out there,” Emma Crenshaw says. “Research today is less about finding information in a book and more about being analytical about the information that exists.” As one member of a studio class that explored many variations, Emma sees a library with light-filled spaces for collaboration and learning, a multi-story, inspirational reading room, and flexibility in the way common spaces are used. Her work builds on ethnographic research performed by students from the Department of Anthropology in a far-reaching design process that encouraged students and faculty to dream big. The partnership is a model for other studies on this campus and for other libraries around the country. David Cronrath’s hopes for a reimagined McKeldin Library are no less grand than his students’ vision. “The library,” he says, “would foster greater partnership between the university’s students and faculty as they investigate the biggest challenges of the 21st century.”

Imagine what a classroom We’re thinking it’s the world. Even while studying abroad in Chile, Kelly Shih didn’t think twice about accessing articles from her go-to database. She frequently logged into JSTOR, an electronic archive of core journals in the humanities and social sciences. “As long I had an internet connection,” Kelly says, “I was pretty sure I could access anything from Maryland, wherever I was in the world.” Kelly’s tech-savvy friends already take classes via Coursera, the international platform that hosts “MOOCs,” or massive open online courses. The University of Maryland is offering several such courses this spring. Kelly prefers the blended approach to instruction: part online, part face-to-face. “I like personal connections,” she says. “I’d always like a professor in the classroom.” And perhaps that’s why she sees the library offering community space. Students who take online courses often have a need to develop a community. “People meet up in public spaces,” Kelly says, “and that would be a great place for a library to come into play.”

How do we get there fr We work every day to support students and faculty in their academic work, to envision a new library, to create the future. These are some of the tangible results.
COLLECTIONS Increased to 44th from 50th in the annual rankings of the Association of Research Libraries. The ranking reflects campus investment in libraries. We attribute our rise to income from the Library Technology Fee. Received grant of $325,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to participate in the Library of Congress’s Chronicling of America Project. We will digitize and digitally preserve historic newspapers from Maryland. Negotiated multi-year agreements with selected major journal publishers to hold down cost increases. Opened an exhibition relating to the life and vision of author and designer William Morris (1834-1896). The exhibition showcases his written works, political activism and artistic endeavors. It includes The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer, printed by Kelmscott Press in 1896, and widely considered to be the “finest book ever printed.”
Provided infrastructure for digital stewardship and conversion. The new Digital Stewardship Unit manages data and projects and acts as a clearinghouse for library digital projects. Borndigital materials are a focus. The Digital Conversion and Media Reformatting Unit has detailed best practices for digital collections, focusing on audio and moving image formats, and identified future services of the new unit. Celebrated Open Access Week, an international event, to increase support for free and unrestricted access to information by hosting workshops, speakers and promotions. Dean Steele chaired the Senate’s Open Access Task Force. Adopted a “print-limited” model for the Architecture Library, after consultation and work with faculty from that school. Future acquisitions there will be purchased in electronic form when they are available. The model demonstrates a new way of thinking about collections and services. Expanded the circulating video collection from 300 to 2,500.

Evaluate purchases and licensing agreements within the context of the Big Ten (CIC) library consortium. Realign collections in McKeldin Library to create space for student learning. Begin to identify materials to be transferred in 2015 to the universityowned library facility near campus. Pilot a system for purchasing print materials in which acquisitions are driven by user demand. Though librarians have long taken pride in understanding user needs, this model leverages technology to make the process efficient and seamless. Develop a business case for managing the research data services for the university.

SERVICES Taught information literacy skills to 20,522 students, faculty, staff and a wide variety of visiting individuals and groups. Introduced a data-management service for faculty who can now consult a specialized team of librarians for advice and assistance with data curation and long-term preservation. The service grew from a proposal to the VP for Research in coordination with the CIO for the University Libraries to lead such a program on campus. Launched a book-delivery service for faculty and graduate students, who can request through the online catalog that books be delivered to any branch library. Enriched WorldCat UMD, an online discovery tool that makes it easier to find items such as journal articles, e-books, and digitized collections. The tool is also highlighted in an overhauled website.
Partnered with the Art Department within the College of Arts and Humanities to provide space for digital art students to display their work in the Terrapin Learning Commons. Art will change as new students create additional work for this curriculum-based program. Realigned borrowing policies for visitors by establishing the Community Borrowers program. The new program, developed in concert with the Alumni Association, improves our stewardship of a valuable state-owned resource. Improved printing services and increased efficiency by installing new multi-format copiers in all campus libraries, both for public and administrative use. Installed interactive display monitors in group study rooms at the Priddy Library at Shady Grove to allow virtual collaboration.
Implemented an online reference tool “LibAnswers,” to track and analyze queries from users and allow them to find answers to common questions.
Helped launch campuswide GIS steering committee and conducted campus GIS survey; participated in GIS Day, a nationwide event to raise awareness about spatial data and tools.
Expanded the popular equipment loan program to the Chemistry Library and Engineering and Physical Sciences Library. In McKeldin Library we logged 30,000 loans of Apple MacBook Pros, Dell laptops, adapters, headphones, and more. A website and monitor at the check-out desk show real-time availability. Made possible by the Library Technology Fee.
Opened the TLC Tech Desk, a new service desk in the Terrapin Learning Commons, that offers late-night support and delivers some of the printing services formerly offered by McKeldin Library’s Copy Shop, which we closed in August 2012. A large-format printer allows students to print poster-sized work.
Integrate existing and new services (such as streaming video and audio) into Canvas, the campus’s new online learning environment. Expand use of mobile apps, including text messaging for reference questions. Support faculty in their scholarly publishing by providing infrastructure and expertise in the use of open-access publishing platforms. Develop a vision for transformational initiatives such as a research commons to support faculty research and a digital science library.
SPACE Reimagined McKeldin Library. Graduate students from the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation presented their vision for a redesigned McKeldin Library. The work grew from a yearlong study in which anthropology students and library staff, working with a consultant, engaged the campus community in participatory design. Began plans to renovate the first floor of McKeldin Library, consistent with long-term vision for the building and to respond to immediate needs for clarity of services and navigation. Upgraded the instruction labs in McKeldin Library by installing new energy-efficient lighting, furnishings, projectors and 88 dual-boot Apple computers. When not accommodating instruction needs, the labs are available for use by students. With financial assistance from Campus Facilities. Upgraded McKeldin Library’s large community room with new projector and screen, lighting and carpeting, with financial assistance from Campus Facilities. The campus community may reserve the room for special events.
Welcomed MITH to Hornbake Library by freeing up underutilized space for new offices. The partnership with the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities continues to flourish. Librarians participated in the innovative Digital Incubator Workshop to conceive and plan projects. Created a group-study room in the Chemistry Library.
NEXT STEPS Extend concept of Terrapin Learning Commons to the high-traffic first floor of McKeldin Library, creating a student-friendly environment that ties physical improvements to programmatic changes –such as consolidated service points and increased technical support. Build support for major, long-term renovation of McKeldin Library to serve needs of students and faculty whose needs have changed dramatically in the decades since the library was constructed. Assess public spaces in Hornbake Library in anticipation of the St. John Learning and Teaching Center to be located nearby.

STAFFING Hired 24 new employees, targeting strategic areas and filling gaps left by vacancies following several difficult budgetary years. Among them was an associate dean for public services, a new position, to identify creative partnerships throughout campus and beyond that promote and support user-centered services. Launched a staff mentoring program to increase professional development opportunities for staff. Hired three post-master’s librarians as part of a program to link short-term hires to strategic needs. (See page 6) Fostered communication among employees by equipping all library sites with web cameras for video conference and recording of meetings. Turned Green. Nine library offices achieved bronze-level certification from the campus Sustainability Office, representing 36 percent of the campus total. Six additional library offices are currently seeking certification. We’ve found new ways to repurpose unneeded materials: agreements with two vendors to re-sell or donate materials deaccessioned from library collections,
and worked with campus to expand furniture that can’t be traded. Gave back. Staff donated over 200 pounds of non-perishable food, 30 pounds of personal care products and school supplies and $810 to help the Capital Area Food Bank in its work in the District of Columbia metropolitan area. Partnered with classes in the iSchool, School of Architecture, Department of Anthropology, Department of Art, and School of Business.
NEXT STEPS Continue to evaluate shifting needs and expectations as daily work continues to change. Expand the staff mentoring program. Expand our number of “green” offices, explore the possibility of composting paper towel waste from our restrooms and set up a catering kitchen for our Special Events Room that uses nondisposable dishware and utensils as evidence of our broad support for campus sustainability efforts.

Imagine what a gift can Donors help us realize the future. Patricia Leppert says she found her center in McKeldin Library. As a graduate student in the late ‘70s, Patricia sought out McKeldin Library to find solace amid the pressures and demands of her studies in recreation and biology. “I came to McKeldin Library to find my inner peace, my center,” she says. She remembers vividly the books and the contentment she found as she studied in the stacks. Patricia, who once stuttered so severely she could not say her name, understands the value of a neutral, supportive space on campus. From the moment she earned her Master of Arts degree on December 18, 1979, she knew she wanted to give back to the library that had provided such comfort. She recently made a planned gift creating an endowment to provide unrestricted support for McKeldin Library. The income generated will provide essential flexibility and long-lasting support to direct funds where the need is greatest. “This is a dream of mine,” she says of her donation. She hopes the gift will allow other students, perhaps even those with a speech impediment, to find a welcome, comforting environment, such as one provided by McKeldin Library. “We all have challenges, some more than others,” she says. “A library gives us space to recognize those challenges and the confidence to live with them, or eventually overcome them.”
Patricia A. Leppert, M.A. 1979
