In 2013, the AFL-CIO “The recovery of USEFUL STORIES from the grist of the past requires
SKILL & TALENT, and a lot of hard work on the part of
ARCHIVISTS and historians, journalists and
donated to the University of Maryland its historical archive, an extensive collection of documents, photographs, books, and audio and visual recordings pertaining to the federation of labor unions based in Washington, D.C. “Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in the relationship between the AFL-CIO and academia,” President Richard Trumka said at a university ceremony in October. “We entrust our most crucial records to the University of Maryland Libraries.” With materials that fill six miles of shelving, the collection is the largest such donation to the university and a boon to scholars of labor studies. Complementing other labor-related collections at the University Libraries, the AFL-CIO archive will establish the university as a top archival repository for labor history in North America. The donation of the George Meany Memorial AFL-CIO Archive, and a curatorial position associated with it, also expands opportunities to partner with George Washington University, home to the archive of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

“College affordability is “When your TEXTBOOK COSTS could pay your

a huge deal to students,” says Meenu Singh, who works on behalf of her classmates to increase awareness about the hidden costs of higher education. While expenses like tuition, housing and food may be obvious, she says, the cost of textbooks is not. The Student Government Association polled students last year and found the average student pays about $300 to $500 per semester for textbooks. Introductory editions are often more than $100 each. Singh and others encourage faculty members to use openaccess textbooks, which make information freely available on the Web. She also worked to recruit supporters to attend a systemwide rally to raise awareness about the open-access movement. The University Libraries have long promoted free access to information. As one example, librarians this year created a guide to Web-based content and tools— such as software or a “build-yourown-textbook” service—offered for faculty to use in their teaching.

“Materials influence “Most STUDENTS need help understanding
TECHNICAL RESOURCES and
everything,” says Robert Briber, who teaches Materials of Civilization (ENMA150), a university I-Series course. His students learn the importance of materials that range from stone and clay to superconductors and shapememory alloys. Superabsorbent polymers, for example, are used not only for diapers but also to store water in agricultural applications. A proponent of library instruction, Briber values the expertise of librarians in the Engineering and Physical Sciences Library. Robin Dasler, for example, teaches students to get the most from licensed databases such as Scopus or Web of Science. “My main goal is to expose them to the relevant literature and show how to use it to trace a problem or solution,” she says. Our plans to create a Science Commons, outlined this year by a librarian task force, will bring a new level of service and partnership to STEM disciplines. The proposed technology-rich space will feature science databases, experiential learning opportunities and collaborative work areas. “Given a choice,” Briber says, “students would do everything online.”

herself as a gardening devotee, so it’s no surprise that Barbara Angier was drawn to a book filled with colorful flower lithographs. A longtime university supporter and member of the family for whom Hornbake Library is named, Barbara Angier especially values the rare and unique library items known as special collections. She donated funds through our new “adopt-a-book” program to preserve Flora’s Dictionary, published in 1855. Conservators will use handmade Japanese paper strengthened by mulberry fiber to repair splits in the spine and re-hinge the binding. They will also create a protective box. Angier remembers spending hours as a student in McKeldin Library, with its immense wooden card catalog filled with millions of cards. Her father, R. Lee Hornbake, was an advocate for libraries and a lover of books. “He’d be both mystified and impressed” she says, if he could see the advances in technology and the information now available to students by computer. “He did it—I did it—the hard way,” she says, smiling.

to manage the university’s digital assets, Babak Hamidzadeh is also leading the University Libraries in a new direction. “Let’s be pioneers,” he says. These assets—ranging from, say, a scientist’s observational data to the university’s millions of electronic records—are growing exponentially. Often they are the core of scholarship. But understanding how to preserve or disseminate them challenges nearly every researcher or curator. Consider that valuable research data may just be sitting on an old computer’s hard drive and you begin to understand the problem. Hamidzadeh, who is also an affiliate associate professor in the Department of Computer Science, is leading the University Libraries with a wide-ranging plan to manage these digital assets in all formats and in all phases of their life cycle, from their creation to their long-term preservation and access. “We are the ones who know how to manage data,” Hamidzadeh says of librarians. “It’s what we do.”

COLLECTIONS Your needs shape our vast collections.
Welcomed a gift from the AFL-CIO of its historical archive, known as the George Meany Memorial AFL-CIO Archive. Valued at $25 million and occupying roughly six miles of shelving, it is the university’s largest archival collection. University President Wallace D. Loh accepted the donation on behalf of the university at a ceremony on October 1.
Established the MPower Virtual Research Library in partnership with the University of Maryland, Baltimore, bringing highly desirable STEM-related resources and other collections to both College Park and Baltimore campuses.
Leveraged the purchasing power of the WORKING WOMEN As a driving force within America’s labor unions, women are well represented in the George Meany Memorial AFL-CIO Archive. Photograph by Martha Tabor, 1980.
Committee on Institutional Cooperation, our Big Ten peers, to acquire new resources including digital historical primary sources and, particularly noteworthy, e-journals and e-books related to STEM disciplines worth nearly $2 million if purchased independently.
Showcased special collections with two CHARM CITY Issues from the mid- to late-1800s of the German-language newspaper Der Deutsche Correspondent provide a glimpse of Baltimore’s history and are part of a digital project funded by the NEH.
Hornbake Library exhibitions: How We Might Live: The Vision of William Morris (September 2012 through July 2013); and Saving College Radio: WMUC Past, Present and Future (September 2013). Opening receptions for each attracted friends and donors; alumni representing six decades of student DJs attended the especially popular WMUC event.
Joined an elite group of partner institutions in a collaborative effort to improve online access to historic French pamphlets. Funded by a one-year planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the group will improve access to French revolutionary pamphlet collections in the U.S. and France. A pilot project at Maryland established the university as a potential partner for the NEH grant. We hold approximately 12,000 such pamphlets.

Demonstrated a serious commitment to digital preservation by creating a library-wide policy that underscores our capability to reliably archive, migrate, and provide access to digital content consistent with national standards. Librarians at the University of Maryland now curate approximately 75 terabytes of data, and the number escalates.
Introduced an efficient method of purchasing books in which users trigger the purchase requests through the library catalog. We provided access to more than 7,500 such “demand-driven” titles last year.
Journals $840,174 Books $870,252 E-journals $5,256,648 E-Books $529,911 $1M
TRENDLINES Though many think that libraries offer mainly books, we spent much more in FY2013 on digital resources than print, consistent with previous years and national trends.
Provided discovery metadata to individual titles purchased in large packages in WorldCat UMD, the Libraries’ catalog. Staff from our Technical Services Department used new tools and workflows to catalog more than 462,000 titles, over and above the 50,000 titles we ordinarily process.
Celebrated the scanning of the one-millionth image from the Gordon W. Prange Collection as part of an ongoing project to digitize books in the collection. The Prange Collection is the world’s most complete archive of Japanese print publications from 1945-1949.
Submitted 55,004 Maryland newspaper pages to the Library of Congress as part of the Historic Maryland Newspaper Project. This is more than half of the pages to be digitized with a $325,000 grant provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities by the end of August 2014. These digitized pages will soon be available on the Library of Congress’ free online database Chronicling America: http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov.
ONE MILLION The Gordon W. Prange Collection reaches an impressive milestone. Noguchi Ujo and others, & Kazama Shiro. (1947). Doyo ehon, dai I shu, Toppan.
Introduced the Open Access Publishing Fund to support faculty members who publish their work in online, freely available journals. We encourage authors to retain their rights as authors and also support new publishing models that allow the public to find and freely read scholarship. The new fund stems from recommendations of the University Senate Open Access Task Force. We Hear You 3
SERVICES Your needs inspire new and better service.
Sought the expertise of graduate students in the College of Information Studies, or iSchool, whose myriad group projects informed ways to develop a strategic planning process, identify services to support STEM disciplines, create performance rubrics, allocate resources, improve the website and more.
Repositioned services within the context of changing expectations by developing plans for a Science Commons, Research Commons and Media Commons. Librarians also redefined their roles as liaisons in an extensive task force report. 3D PRINTING “Additive manufacturing,” or 3D printing, is now available to students and faculty in McKeldin Library’s Terrapin Learning Commons.
Partnered with the university’s Division of Information Technology to integrate its Help Desk and Terrapin Technology Store operations into the first floor of McKeldin Library. The new location provides the university community easier access to IT-related support in a convenient central location.
Provided a full complement of services to support audiovisual research and digital production for the university’s “Creating Museums of the Immigrant Experience” program, a first-time collaboration between the university, the Smithsonian Institution and local government agencies.
Introduced a 3-D printer to the Terrapin Learning Commons, available to any student or faculty member to render objects in plastic. It is especially helpful for prototyping in fields such as engineering and design.
Expanded and relocated the popular equipmentloan program to the Terrapin Learning Commons. Items may also be checked out from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Library, the Chemistry Library and the Architecture Library. A website shows real-time availability. Supported by the Library Technology Fee.

ENVIRONMENTS Your needs determine how we create and configure library spaces.
Created a quiet-study room on the fourth floor of McKeldin Library, responding to student requests to provide a range of options for them to complete their work, from collaborative areas to silent spaces. Similarly, we created a multipurpose room in the Engineering and Physical Sciences Library.
Opened all floors of McKeldin Library 24 hours a day, five days a week, thereby increasing access to study space as the number of annual visitors to the building continues to climb. Previously only the first two floors were open all night.
Reconceived the first floor of McKeldin Library to consolidate service points, improve study spaces and improve navigation. Early in 2014, we began working with architects to create detailed designs.
Partnered with the Graduate School to provide a space for their Writing Fellows consultation service, which we welcomed to new offices on the fifth floor of McKeldin Library. The Future of Information Alliance now also has offices in McKeldin Library.
Continued planning the Severn Library, a university-owned facility on the edge of campus that will house unique, rare and important research collections. We expect to occupy the building in late 2015.
Planned space renovations and reallocations
SHHHH HAPPENS McKeldin Library now boasts a new fourth-floor study lounge, created in response to student requests for additional quietstudy spaces.

documented in three task-force reports: Science Commons, Research Commons and Media Commons. The detailed reports authored by teams of librarians analyze trends, respond to current and anticipated needs of students and faculty, and propose operational efficiencies.
Contained a mold outbreak on the fifth floor of McKeldin Library, triggered by high summer temperatures and an inefficient HVAC system. The floor was closed during the fall semester for cleaning, repairs and maintenance and re-opened in January.
S TA F F I N G Your needs influence who we are, and how we spend our time.
Hired seven librarians and 10 staff members in 2013. In January 2014, Daniel Mack joined as the Associate Dean for Collections and became the final member of the dean’s administrative team. Mack was previously Deputy Director for Collection Management and Special Collections. He will continue to work with faculty and the campus to define the future of collections.
Partnered with the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) to serve as an elite training ground for the National Digital Stewardship Residency program. As one of 10 host sites selected by the Library of Congress, the University of Maryland joins other institutions in the Washington, D.C., area, including the Folger Shakespeare Library, the National Library of Medicine, the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution Archives.
Participated in MITH’s Digital Humanities Incubator workshop series as a way to offer professional development opportunities for librarians and staff, cultivate digital projects and support innovative stewardship of the university’s collections.
Hosted events featuring Dr. Valerii Pavlovich Leonov, director of the Russian Academy of Sciences Library, with whom we will expand strategic partnerships in the coming year.
Reasserted our commitment to promoting

diversity by appointing an advisory committee that reports to the dean, chaired by a newly named diversity officer. This initiative builds on university priorities.
Changed the name of the Information Technology Department to Digital Systems and Stewardship, to better reflect the changing nature and responsibilities of this department.
Participated in record numbers in the univer-
