The analogy between gardening and libraries is apt. Productive gardens require fertile soil, a wide variety of seeds, good tools, and careful tending. Libraries provide the same for the process of scholarship and learning, helping seed the environment not just with strong collections, but also with good tools, enabling programs, and expertise to help students and faculty make the most of our resources. This issue explores the theme of the knowledge lifecycle, from discovery and use of information through creation and dissemination and new knowledge. This same framework guides the University Libraries’ strategic planning: Rather than a singular focus on the products of scholarship (books and journals), the Libraries are

These are questions being addressed in a joint proposal of the University’s Minnesota Population Center and Institute on the Environment. Such research is possible when data maintained and made accessible to other researchers. In 2010, the National Science Foundation implemented a policy to ensure that data will be sustained and potentially shareable, requiring all grant proposals to include data management plans. The Libraries are drawing on our longstanding expertise in managing and preserving information to help researchers on campus respond to that policy requirement.

sometimes the abundance of search results is overwhelming. The Libraries are working to address this problem by harnessing the power of Google search, enabling refined retrieval, and seamlessly linking an individual’s inquiry to the sources in our collection. We’re also drawing on some of the features of other favored sites — for example, Amazon — in bringing the recommendations of others to inform the research process.

makes me realize I’m looking for something a little different.” So you learn more about what it is you really want by looking at your search results, you refine your search criteria, and then find some useful information while uncovering new leads to follow up on. Bates writes, “In other words, the query is satisfied not by a single final retrieved set, but by a series of selections of individual references and bits of information at each stage of the ever-modifying search. A bit-at-a-time retrieval of this sort is called berrypicking.”

Hanson is quick to dismiss any criticism of users who search these commercial services first. “We all use them every day and they’re amazing. People are not using Google because they’re lazy, or because it’s ubiquitous, they’re using Google because it works. It works for me, many times a day, just like it does for you, I’m sure.” Hanson continues, “There’s nothing wrong with Google searching, but the good stuff is simply not available to Google.”

It’s clear that, while Google may be king among searchers, behind every great researcher is a great library.

Dynamically created for all courses at the University, each Library Course Page (LCP) brings together resources tailored to a specific course. Content is selected and organized by librarians in collaboration with faculty and instructors, with some pages including general resources useful for a discipline or major and others created in close consultation with an individual faculty member.

that, while the number of reference transactions lasting fewer than 5 minutes has declined over the past three years, those lasting anywhere from 6 minutes to over 30 minutes have remained steady. In other words, fewer users need reference staff to answer the quick-and-easy questions (no doubt many are answering these questions for themselves online), but librarians are still in demand for the meatier questions. It’s clear that, while Google may be king among searchers, behind every great researcher is a great library.

Searching Far and Wide The impact of the tens of thousands of reference interactions logged each year extends well beyond campus. One recent call to the reference staff of University Archives was from Fran Johannes, whose mother had died recently at age 94. The mother’s obituary mentioned a 4-H award she had won at the Minnesota State Fair in 1932. Johannes searched Google for her mother’s name and found this photo of her holding the award in the UMedia Archive (umedia.lib., a copy of which she was able to obtain from archives staff.

When Susanna McMaster, co-director of the Master of Geographic Information Science program in the U’s geography department, was asked to give a presentation about geography, maps, and landforms to a fifth grade class in Edina, she turned to Ryan Mattke in the John R. Borchert Map Library. Although McMaster had expected to search for the needed materials herself, she discovered that Mattke had pulled an entire set maps and air photo images in advance of their meeting. In a thank-you sent to Mattke’s supervisor, McMaster writes, “the presentation and in-class exercise was a huge hit and every single student participated in the discussion and was so engaged in the hands-on exercise involving map reading and analysis. This would not have Mattke

been possible without Ryan’s help and the resources available at the map library. I hope this results in some future geography majors!”

Throngs of high school students get an early start honing their research skills when they arrive on campus to conduct research for History Day, a highly regarded national academic challenge. A recent day-long event just for History Day participants had nearly 300 students researching in Wilson Library. But Minnesotans are not the only students supported in their History Day projects. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania resident Collin McCarthy wrote to archivist Dave Klaassen last summer to thank him for “the encouragement you offered when you took my questions seriously.” McCarthy had contacted the Social Welfare History Archives years earlier when researching his seventh grade National History Day project on Paul Kellogg and the Survey Graphic. McCarthy

He wrote “without archives, libraries, and the databases they provide I could never have done this year’s project or gotten through high school.” In fact, “this year’s

As the son of a librarian, Paul T. (Pete) Magee had always thought of libraries as stacks of books. As a faculty member and former dean of the U’s College of Biological Sciences, he relied on the many resources of the Libraries. Now as a board member for the Friends of the Libraries, his vision of libraries has grown. Through programs and events sponsored by the Friends, he has learned more about the wide-ranging work of the Libraries, and is especially enthusiastic about innovative programs that support student learning, like the SMART Learning Commons and media services. Although Pete and his wife Beatrice (Bebe) are long-time annual contributors, they recently decided to add a bequest to their will. The Magees hopes others will do the same, explaining, “Universities are both contemporary and historical institutions. The Libraries are a huge part of the historical side as well as being a vibrantly active part of the contemporary side. By giving money to the Libraries, you not only actively support what’s going on today, but you make sure that what’s been done in the past isn’t lost.” Interested in remembering the Libraries in your will? Contact Katherine McGill, development director, at 612-624-8207 or

In Memoriam: Paul C. Nagel Paul C. Nagel, biographer and historian, died at age 84 on May 22, 2011 in Edina, Minnesota. Nagel, a graduate of the University of Minnesota, spent forty years elsewhere distinguishing himself as a university professor, administrator and writer. He and his wife, Joan, returned to Minneapolis in 1992. A native of Independence, Missouri, Nagel enrolled at the University at the close of World War II. He earned his bachelor’s, master’s and, in 1952, the Ph.D in history. In 1948, he married Joan R. Peterson, a librarian at the University. Joan, a genealogist, was a collaborator with Paul in many of his historical works. She died in 2010. Nagel began his career as a teacher and writer. After fifteen years as a professor of history, he became dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Kentucky. In 1969, Nagel was named vice president for academic affairs at the University of Missouri. In 1980, Nagel left academic administration to become the Director of the Virginia Historical Society in Richmond. In 1985, he began to devote fulltime to writing for the general reader. He is best known for his three books about the Adams family of Massachusetts: Descent From Glory, The Adams Women and John Quincy Adams. Nagel then turned his attention to The Lees of Virginia. Nagel has also written three books dealing with his native state of Missouri. In September of 2010, Nagel received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Adams Institute. Only two other persons have been given this honor: David McCullough and Ted Kennedy. Other honors include designation by the state legislature of Virginia as a Cultural Laureate. He was a senior trustee of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Returning to Minnesota, Paul became active at the University of Minnesota, most notably serving on the board of the Friends of the Libraries for over ten years, including two years as president of that organization. He is survived by three sons, Eric J., Jefferson, and Steven P. (Monica) and a granddaughter, Margaret Joan Nagel (daughter of Jefferson). Memorials are preferred to the Joan Peterson Nagel Memorial Fund at the University of Minnesota Andersen Library, where the Nagel papers (see page 15) are held.

ABOUT THOSE PIRATED MAPS Ricci’s diaries of the time described his bemusement as woodblock carvers worked simultaneously to create both official and pirate versions of the map. These rogue woodblocks resulted in perhaps 1,000 unofficial, or pirate, copies of the 1602 Ricci map. (The contemporary practice of the Chinese consuming pirated DVDs perhaps reflects a long and honorable tradition of opportunistically propagating knowledge and culture from abroad.) When Wisconsin artist Gaylord Schanilec, a noted wood engraver and print maker, first viewed the Bell’s map, his response was, “This was printed in a hurry.” Could Minnesota’s map be one of the pirate copies? If so, it would be the only known version in the world.

Together, they read and translate Classical Chinese (a written language, the equivalent in English, Waltner says, of “somewhere between Beowulf and Shakespeare”) in materials they are working on. Last spring, before the map had even arrived in Minneapolis, the group started a careful reading of digital facsimiles of the Ricci map.

Waltner has collaborated with other colleagues to produce new work beyond these translations. This winter, Waltner worked with University of Minnesota doctoral student Qin Fang and New York-composer Huang Ruo to design a multi-media program focusing on Matteo Ricci and his map.

Short Stacks An Elephant in the Library . . . When a proposed settlement in the Google Books lawsuit was rejected this March, some wondered if Google’s plan to scan selected volumes from the University of Minnesota Libraries was in jeopardy. The answer, according to a statement issued by University Librarian Wendy Pradt Lougee, is an emphatic “No.” The Libraries are not a party in the suit brought against Google by a group of publisher and author plaintiffs, and the ruling has not affected the Google digitization project we have been participating in through a 2007 joint agreement with the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC, a consortium of the Big 10 institutions plus the University of Chicago). In fact, the CIC celebrated a major milestone earlier this year: Google has digitized and returned a million volumes from member libraries, and plans to digitize millions more. More important, libraries are not leaving the future of digital books to Google. While the ruling means that scans of in-copyright content cannot be read online, they will be indexed so users can more easily find relevant print content in our libraries. In the meantime, all public domain material will be fully readable through the HathiTrust Digital Library, which accounts for over 2.2 million of the more than 8.4 million volumes held in the shared digital repository. Drawing its name from the Hindi word for elephant (an animal highly regarded for its memory, wisdom, and strength), the HathiTrust (pronounced hah-tee) began in 2008 as a collaboration of the CIC, the University of California system, and the University of Virginia. It has expanded quickly since then, and is now an international partnership comprising 52 academic and research libraries. Learn more at and

. . . and Gophers, too! Visitors to Wilson Library on Saturday, January 15 found the building overrun with aspiring Gophers. Taking the opportunity to visit the state’s largest research library before University classes began, nearly 300 Minnesota middle and high school students preparing History Day projects attended the first-ever Gopherbaloo. Like the related History Day Hullabaloo events held at the Minneapolis Central branch of Hennepin County Library, the students received enhanced research support from librarians and lessons offered by Minnesota Historical Society program staff and others on various History Day topics. This summer, eleven area high school sophomores and juniors participated in a pilot Summer History Immersion Program in Andersen Library. Modeled after National History Day, the students received an in-depth historical research and college immersion experience at the University of Minnesota.

Peer Pressure to Succeed A new program matches students with peers for one-on-one, personalized research help. The cadre of Peer Research Consultants, all extensively trained in library and academic research, focus on teaching students as they help them with their research questions. Students and instructors give the program high marks, with one writing that her student “came in raving about his experience with the peer research consultants. . . . Since then a couple more students have made visits and in their emails to me, I see that their research focus is improving. This is a great service!”

The award recognizes Johnston for her work on the data management program described on page 6.

The Adventure of the Endowed Curatorship Mrs. Hudson may be the Holmes caretaker at 221B Baker Street, but it’s Tim Johnson in that role at 222 21st Avenue South in Minneapolis. Johnson, who has served as curator of special collections and rare books for the Libraries since 1998, was recently named the first E.W. McDiarmid Curator of the Sherlock Holmes Collections. From his office in Andersen Library, Johnson tends to the world’s largest collection of material related to Sherlock Holmes and its creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The collections contain over 60,000 items and has been consulted by scholars and screenwriters alike. The curatorship was created by the Friends of the Sherlock Holmes Collections and the McDiarmid family in honor of E.W. “Mac” McDiarmid, former University Librarian and a Holmes enthusiast since boyhood.

For These Are Jolly Good Fellowships Six scholars from around the world will be delving into several University Libraries archives and special collections this year, with support from two new fellowship programs. As the first James Ford Bell Library Research Fellow, Virginia R. Donovan, University of Wisconsin-Superior, will conduct a literary comparison of Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville’s writing with the Bell Library’s French corsair archive. The five inaugural Andersen Research Scholars will be working in various collections in Andersen Library: Samuel Zebulon Baker, Georgia Southern University, will conduct research in University Archives for his book Fields of Contest: Race, Religion, and College Football in the U.S. South, 1945–1975. J. Edmund Heavens, St. John’s College, will use records in the Kautz Family YMCA Archives for his dissertation on the Robert R. Service family’s efforts to establish a YMCA presence in Sichuan, China. Paul Kemeny, Grove City College, is researching his book, The First Moral Majority: The New England Watch and Ward Society and Moral Reform Politics in Late Nineteenth and Early Twentieth-Century America, using the Social Welfare History Archives. Olga Pantelidou, National Technical University of Athens (Greece), will be conducting research at the Charles Babbage Institute for her dissertation on the effects of Electronic Recording Machine-Accounting on the banking industry. Michelle Phillips, Rutgers University, will use the Children’s Literature Research Collections for her dissertation, ‘The Child in the Midst’: Modernism and the Problem of Childhood Interiority.

Of Art, Agriculture, and Health The history of what was once the University Gallery and is now the internationally known, Frank Gehry-designed Weisman Art Museum; the papers of renowned plant pathologist and humanitarian Norman Borlaug; archival materials documenting the history of agriculture in Minnesota; the development of health sciences education and research at the University of Minnesota. Researchers interested in these topics will soon have improved access to primary sources thanks to a flurry of projects in University Archives this past year. Since October 2010, the Weisman Art Museum has been closed to the public while a $14 million expansion is completed. In the meantime, another construction project has been underway: “The WAM Files” blog highlights the treasures uncovered as the Weisman Archives are being processed by two graduate student interns. “Five students were hit by autos, six were bitten by squirrels on campus last year” are two highlights from a 1971 report from the Students’ Health Service, one of thousands of items digitized for the Academic Health Center History Project. The “Planting the Seeds of the Green Revolution” project aims to digitize fifty-eight boxes of material including those donated by Borlaug, who won the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize for his development of the high-yield, disease-resistant wheat credited with saving billions of people from starvation. “Harvesting Minnesota’s Agricultural History” will create online finding aids to help researchers locate and access the previously unprocessed agricultural collections held by University Archives from 1871 to the present.

Sara Roberson Collection of African American Children’s Literature Archie Givens, Sr. Collection of African American Literature and Children’s Literature Research Collections As a teacher in the Minneapolis Public School District for more than three decades, Sara Roberson amassed a vast library of children’s books by and about African Americans. The collection also contains materials that document the desegregation of Minneapolis Public Schools in the 1970s as well as the development of interdisciplinary and multicultural curricula for grade schoolers in the 1970s and ’80s; literary broadsides, books, and other publications by African American writers; and many other treasures that tell a history of African American culture and literature. Of particular interest are materials—posters, calendars, comic books, and ephemera—that represent African American history, often as told by major American companies such as Miller High Life and Nabisco, as well as the 1967– 1970 Golden Legacy comic book series depicting African American history.

Dissertation of the Fourteen Meridians Wangensteen Historical Library of Biology and Medicine The latest of several significant Chinese works with Japanese reading notes to be added to the Wangensteen collections is Shinkan Jushi Keiraku Hakkui (trans. Dissertation of the Fourteen Meridians). This work, printed in 1618 in Kyoto, is the first Japanese edition of one of the most important works of Chinese acupuncture written by Shou Hua (fl. 1360–1370). This three-part text concerns the Yin and Yang through the arms and legs, circulation of the breath of life through the fourteen meridians, and the eight vital blood vessels. This work is also an important and rare example of early printing using movable wood type, a process only used for a short period in the history of Japanese book production.
