Letter<br />

<strong>Librarian</strong><br />

{ <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Librarian</strong> } progress report 2008-09 page 2<br />

Organizations tend to use annual reports to trumpet significant accomplishments –<br />

major gifts, new buildings, innovative programs, and the like. The <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong>’s<br />

version is no different in that regard; in the following pages you’ll find our share<br />

of noteworthy acquisitions, generous donations, new initiatives.<br />

Yet note the subtitle of this publication for a moment before you proceed; we quite<br />

consciously call it a “progress report” rather than an annual report. The concept<br />

of “progress” as incremental movement toward a goal, development in a positive<br />

direction, better captures the sense of a year’s accomplishments and activities at the<br />

<strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong>, a year that contained as many seemingly minor actions that together<br />

add up to significant feats as it did major announcements.<br />

Take, for example, the research guides described in the collections section. One<br />

guide, viewed on its own, may be very helpful to a certain group of users but is<br />

unremarkable to the world at large. Yet five – ten – dozens of guides seen in aggregate<br />

point to a redefinition and an enhancement of an entire aspect of library<br />

collections and service.<br />

Online chat reference offers a similar case in point. When the <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> offered this service on<br />

our own, we were only able to provide it during certain days and times, the hours our staff was available.<br />

When the service became a joint project of all University of California libraries, hours were expanded,<br />

and it became more noteworthy. As you’ll see in the services article, we’ve now joined an international<br />

consortium that makes this service available twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. What began as<br />

a small step has progressed over time into a major accomplishment.<br />

When it comes to acquisitions, the following pages contain many headline-worthy names – those of John<br />

Fante and Aldous Huxley, just to name two. But don’t overlook the more routine acquisitions: new collecting<br />

areas launched to support expanded areas of teaching and research, a large collection of electronic books<br />

that can be used for any educational purpose, digitized rare books that are now accessible online to the public<br />

worldwide. Piece by piece, these “small” accomplishments add up to significant achievements offering<br />

long-term benefits.<br />

A similar assessment of incremental-approach-equals-accomplishment is evident even when it comes to<br />

major grants. The first project the <strong>Library</strong> announced that would be supported by our extraordinary fivemillion-dollar<br />

gift from the Arcadia Fund was “Collecting Los Angeles.” This new initiative doesn’t focus<br />

on the collections of local Hollywood stars or world-renowned authors or top-ranked athletes; it seeks<br />

out the hidden histories, the groups and individuals whose stories are lesser known and whose remarkable<br />

contributions to the life of this city will crumble into dust and vanish from the historical record without<br />

an organization stepping in to preserve it and make it accessible to current and future generations.<br />

In addition to Arcadia, we are fortunate to have many major donors to thank in these pages for their<br />

irreplaceable contributions to our success during this fiscal year. We also have a great many not-so-major<br />

donors whose contributions collectively are equally irreplaceable, and we want to honor and thank each<br />

of you as well.<br />

Together, your contributions both large and small have enabled us to progress, sometimes in leaps and<br />

sometimes by baby steps, toward our goal to support all aspects of <strong>UCLA</strong>’s mission of education, research,<br />

and service. Through the work produced by <strong>UCLA</strong>’s students, faculty, and staff, you help us serve the<br />

people of Southern California, the U.S., and the world.<br />

Finding Resources<br />

Using Information<br />

Creating Knowledge<br />

If you want to find information in a general area – not<br />

a specific subject, mind you, but a general area – how do<br />

you go about it? How do you identify what journals cover<br />

that area most comprehensively, what primary resources<br />

are available, whether there are digital or audio/visual<br />

resources that you’re not aware of? In the case of the<br />

<strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong>, you might start with a research guide.<br />

<strong>UCLA</strong> Users and <strong>Library</strong> Collections<br />

Today’s increasingly complex, information-intensive academic world demands<br />

research guides that are adaptable, expandable, and easy to use. That can of<br />

course be a person, such as the collection development manager responsible<br />

for a given subject area or a reference librarian who’s familiar with resources<br />

in many disciplines. But since even the most dedicated and efficient librarian<br />

can’t be available to all of <strong>UCLA</strong>’s students, faculty, and staff 24/7, the electronic<br />

research guide offers a useful substitute.<br />

When looking at the various <strong>UCLA</strong> campus libraries’ individual progress<br />

reports for 2008-09, the near ubiquity of research guides stands out, particularly<br />

when compared with previous years. Nearly every librarian created one,<br />

and many created more than one, some for specific disciplines and others<br />

customized for individual courses. You can see them for yourself at .<br />

This could be attributed to the fact that the <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> licensed a Web-hosted<br />

application that makes customized research guides easy to create. It could also be<br />

attributed to librarians wanting to move guides they had created in print format<br />

or as static Web pages into the new application.

But as usage statistics indicate, the primary motive appears to be user-driven.<br />

<strong>UCLA</strong>’s students, faculty, and staff are increasingly studying and doing research<br />

around the clock and around the world, and they rely on the <strong>Library</strong> – all aspects<br />

of the <strong>Library</strong>, collections-related services as well as many of the collections<br />

themselves – to be available when and where they’re working.<br />

The guides share certain commonalities; all contain the banner from the <strong>UCLA</strong><br />

<strong>Library</strong>’s homepage so it’s easy to see that they’re official <strong>Library</strong> resources, and<br />

each contains contact information for the person or department that created it.<br />

But the contents are wildly diverse, reflecting the unique needs of and resources<br />

in the areas they cover.<br />

Take, for example, the guide for indigenous literatures and languages of the<br />

Americas (see upper left). The section labels near the top are familiar enough<br />

and appear on countless other guides: books, journals, primary sources, reference<br />

sources. But what is featured in the center of page? A series of YouTube<br />

videos featuring indigenous poets reading in their own languages. And off to one<br />

side are links to audio of interviews with contemporary Native American<br />

authors. What better way to introduce users immediately to those indigenous<br />

languages and literatures?<br />

Many of the guides offer more than background on and links to useful<br />

resources; some also offer direct, real-time contact with the librarian who<br />

builds and provides services for the specific discipline. Stop by the guide to<br />

electrical engineering, and you’ll find a chat box in the right-hand column<br />

labeled “Contact Your <strong>Librarian</strong>” (see lower left). When the librarian is online,<br />

users can chat with him right then and there rather than sending an email<br />

and waiting for a reply.<br />

The approach taken in certain guides also anticipates the knowledge level of<br />

its potential users. One of the music guides, on popular music and bands, seems<br />

keenly aware before they even arrive on the page that its users may not be<br />

familiar with searching a library for information in this area. It cheerily greets<br />

visitors with tips to get started and a featured section on “Where to look<br />

first!” One of its tabs also offers the reminder that research is a process, not<br />

a destination: “To be thorough, look here too...”<br />

Any library guide, however, is only as good as the collections it supports, and<br />

in that regard, the <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> made remarkable strides during 2008-09.<br />

A comparison of the total volumes listed on page sixteen with the figures from<br />

previous years shows a remarkable jump of more than six hundred and fifty thousand<br />

volumes in one year. During preceding years the total volumes increased at<br />

the pace of about one hundred thousand volumes a year, so what is behind this<br />

sizable increase?<br />

Two factors played a role. In August 2008 the <strong>Library</strong> announced a grant from<br />

the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to address a backlog in cataloging its rare<br />

books. That project kicked into high gear almost immediately, and the concrete<br />

results are evident in these numbers. In addition, efforts to catalog electronic<br />

books and add them to the <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> Catalog have increased; given the rapid<br />

increase in the <strong>Library</strong> holdings in electronic format, that amounts to a sizable<br />

number as well.<br />

In fact, one of the <strong>Library</strong>’s major acquisitions of e-books serves as a reminder<br />

of how being part of the University of California system enhances the <strong>UCLA</strong><br />

<strong>Library</strong>’s own holdings. Collectively, the UC libraries have the largest collection<br />

in the nation and one of the largest in the world, and during 2008-09 that<br />

collection grew even larger with the purchase of nearly every electronic book<br />

published by the German publisher Springer in English and German from 2005<br />

to 2009.<br />

These nearly twenty thousand books fall into the following broad subject areas:<br />

architecture and design; behavioral science; biomedical and life sciences; business<br />

and economics; chemistry and materials science; computer science; earth and<br />

environmental science; engineering; humanities, social sciences, and law; mathematics<br />

and statistics; medicine; physics and astronomy; and professional and<br />

applied computing. All belong to the <strong>Library</strong> in perpetuity, can be downloaded<br />

in PDF format, and can be used in part or in their entirety for any educational<br />

purpose: course reserves, course Web sites, in course management systems.<br />

Also lending a major boost to collection building was a $5-million gift from the<br />

Arcadia Fund, the largest single gift for collections in the <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong>’s history.<br />

Given in the amount of $1 million per year for five years, these funds will be used<br />

to further develop, preserve, and make accessible <strong>Library</strong> collections, as exemplified<br />

by the first project to receive support from the gift.<br />

“Collecting Los Angeles” gathers, preserves, interprets, and makes accessible<br />

collections documenting the remarkable multiplicity of cultures and at-risk<br />

hidden histories of the Los Angeles region. This new program builds on the <strong>Library</strong>’s<br />

existing strengths in this area, which encompass special collections; photo<br />

archives; oral histories; maps; and circulating materials on local history, government,<br />

politics, and literary, performing, and visual arts. It is also transforming the<br />

way the <strong>Library</strong> engages with local communities, in support of Chancellor Gene<br />

Block’s goal of civic engagement, while enhancing collection-building activities,<br />

drawing multiple new connections among existing collections, and attracting<br />

new audiences to their use.<br />

But of course it’s the use of <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> collections that is important, not simply<br />

their existence. Recognizing that, Ruth Simon, retired <strong>UCLA</strong> campus counsel<br />

and a long-time <strong>Library</strong> supporter, created an endowment to support the annual<br />

<strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> Prize for Undergraduate Research. Awarded for the first time in<br />

April 2009, the Ruth Simon First Place Award went to Edgar Hermosillo Gaytan<br />

for his paper “A Community of Shared Goods as Presented in the New Testament<br />

Book of Acts of the Apostles: Pre-industrial Urban Reality.”<br />

The paper was for a history directed research course, with the faculty support of<br />

Professor Scot Bartchy. In his letter supporting Edgar’s application for this award,<br />

Professor Bartchy said of his student, “Mr. Hermosillo far exceeded my requirements<br />

and expectations regarding both the breadth and depth of his research<br />

on this topic. He thoroughly exploited a bibliography of excellent resources that<br />

required two and one-half pages to list. He demonstrated enormous intellectual<br />

curiosity and followed the footnotes in one book and article after another into<br />

new material.”<br />

Edgar explained further how he used <strong>Library</strong> resources and services for this<br />

paper. “Truly, the <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> system and its staff were pivotal in my research,<br />

not only assisting me in finding essential books and journals, but also in locating<br />

those that were not on the libraries’ shelves. The interlibrary loan office was a<br />

godsend, many times querying far-off institutions for obscure reference works,<br />

...scanning pieces which these institutions might only reluctantly lend, and<br />

sending them to me directly by email.... I realize that the quality of my bibliography<br />

is reflective of the amazing library facilities possessed here at <strong>UCLA</strong>.”<br />

Professor Bartchy’s letter makes it clear that Edgar has taken the next step in the<br />

process, which is not simply to consume information but to produce knowledge.<br />

“He became so interested in doing further research on this topic that he asked<br />

if I would continue to mentor him during spring quarter. Although my schedule<br />

was already full, I quickly agreed to do so. I have come to regard Mr. Hermosillo<br />

as one of the best young scholars I know.”<br />

Perhaps one day Edgar Hermosillo Gaytan’s published research will join <strong>UCLA</strong><br />

<strong>Library</strong> collections, and their supporting research guides, to engage new generations<br />

of students and scholars.<br />

University <strong>Librarian</strong> Discretionary Fund Acquisitions<br />

Of the twenty-eight percent of the <strong>Library</strong>’s budget spent on<br />

materials, only a small percentage reflects expenditures for<br />

acquisitions from the university librarian’s discretionary fund.<br />

Yet these few items offer insight into how the <strong>Library</strong> builds<br />

collections and adapts them to encompass scholarship in nontraditional<br />

print formats and to support expanded areas of<br />

research and instruction.<br />

Altered books are artists’ books that<br />

have been constructed using an entire<br />

existing book or elements of one as<br />

a starting point, which then become<br />

something completely new after being<br />

altered by an artist. The Arts <strong>Library</strong><br />

acquired two altered books by<br />

California artists to enhance its<br />

already strong artists’ book collection, which is justly regarded<br />

as a community treasure (for more on its use by <strong>UCLA</strong> students,<br />

see services article on page twelve).<br />

Carolyn Berry (b. 1930) is known both as a painter and a<br />

mixed-media artist; her unique 2005 book More or Less Genuine<br />

definitely falls into the latter category. Terry Braunstein’s<br />

(b. 1942) 1995 work Shorthanded, produced in an edition of<br />

twenty-five, uses analtered shorthand textbook to raise<br />

Moving from the printed, albeit altered, page to the built environment,<br />

research needs are very different in the architecture<br />

and urban design programs. Though these students and faculty<br />

would much prefer to travel in person to see buildings and<br />

urban settings they are studying,<br />

that is often impractical. Thus, highquality<br />

DVDs about the work of<br />

noted architects and major projects<br />

fill an essential need.<br />

Among the recent releases acquired<br />

by the Arts <strong>Library</strong> are Kochuu: Japanese<br />

Architecture / Influence and Origin (2006),<br />

about modern Japanese architecture; Great Expectations: A Journey<br />

through the History of Visionary Architecture (2007), examining innovative<br />

architecture from the beginning of the twentieth century<br />

to the present; and Waste = Food (2007), exploring the “cradle<br />

Shifting from the built environment<br />

to the natural world and<br />

from North Campus to South<br />

Campus, the Department of<br />

Atmospheric Sciences recently<br />

changed its name to the Department<br />

of Atmospheric and Oceanic<br />

Sciences, and its instruction and research have expanded<br />

to reflect this broadening of scope. Research in this area<br />

ranges from the role of the ocean in the physical climate<br />

system to its part in the global carbon cycle and also<br />

emphasizes the study of the coastal environment and<br />

Preserving Copyright, Broadening Access<br />

Student Collaboration Yields Cost Savings<br />

Several years ago, student representatives from the<br />

USAC Academic Affairs Commission approached<br />

the <strong>Library</strong> to talk about textbook-related costs.<br />

Judith Smith, vice provost for undergraduate education,<br />

and the Faculty Committee on Educational<br />

Technology had suggested they ask whether the<br />

<strong>Library</strong> could help them find a way to lower the<br />

costs of course readers. A significant portion of<br />

the readers’ contents has been published in electronic<br />

journals to which the <strong>Library</strong> licenses<br />

access or subscribes to in print and in books it<br />

owns, so the <strong>Library</strong> was a natural partner in<br />

this effort.<br />

Sharon Farb, associate university librarian for collection<br />

management and scholarly communication,<br />

responded with enthusiasm, seeing the possibility<br />

of leveraging <strong>Library</strong>-licensed/owned materials to<br />

accomplish this goal. She brought in AS<strong>UCLA</strong> Academic<br />

Publishing, which produces course readers<br />

on a cost-recovery basis; the price of each reader<br />

includes the actual cost of making it, such as paper<br />

and staff time, plus a permissions fee paid to a copyright<br />

clearing house on behalf of publishers for use<br />

of the contents. The permissions fee, which is calculated<br />

by multiplying the number of students enrolled<br />

in a course by the number of pages or number of<br />

articles, can amount to as much as sixty percent of<br />

a reader’s cost.<br />

Together, the three organizations developed a pilot<br />

study during Spring 2008 to analyze a small sample<br />

of course readers. Looking at only journal articles<br />

used in the sample readers, the study identified<br />

savings ranging from a minimum of twelve cents to<br />

a maximum of $30.18 when the terms of the <strong>Library</strong>’s<br />

license agreements allowed this educational use<br />

without additional permissions payments.<br />

With this background information in hand, the collaborative<br />

project began in earnest in Fall 2008 and is<br />

ongoing. The <strong>Library</strong> and Academic Publishing now<br />

routinely share information on articles<br />

from electronic journals used<br />

in course readers, and when the<br />

educational-use terms of <strong>Library</strong><br />

journal licenses allow, Academic<br />

Publishing is able to eliminate additional<br />

permissions fees for using<br />

those articles. This has lowered<br />

readers’ prices substantially,<br />

depending on the number of eligible<br />

articles.<br />

In addition to informing faculty<br />

about the cost savings their students<br />

would achieve if their course<br />

readers were produced by Academic<br />

Publishing, this project gave<br />

the <strong>Library</strong> another opportunity<br />

to remind faculty members to<br />

negotiate the terms of all author<br />

agreements they sign. By retaining the copyright<br />

for educational re-use, such as posting on a course<br />

Web site or depositing in the open-access University<br />

of California eScholarship Repository, faculty can<br />

increase access to their scholarship and broaden<br />

its reach.<br />

With its direct benefit to students’ budgets, this<br />

project opened a new front in the <strong>Library</strong>’s copyright,<br />

publishing, and intellectual property program.<br />

It joins ongoing efforts to help scholars make their<br />

work more visible and usable, assist with copyright<br />

questions and use of the eScholarship Repository,<br />

and inform the campus community about developments<br />

affecting author rights, the use of copyrighted<br />

materials in research and instruction, and openaccess<br />

initiatives.


A New Approach<br />

Case in point is a Fiat Lux course offered by visual arts<br />

librarian Robert Gore in Fall 2008. Begun in Fall 2002,<br />

Fiat Lux one-unit seminars for freshmen provide valuable<br />

forums in which students and faculty explore<br />

topics of intellectual importance and participate in<br />

critical discussion of these topics. Their small-group<br />

setting develops students’ critical thinking skills and<br />

allows close contact with and attention from the<br />

instructor.<br />

In “Artists’ Books in the <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> and Beyond,”<br />

Gore offered an introduction to the genre of artists’<br />

books and to the remarkable collections of these works<br />

held at <strong>UCLA</strong>. During sessions led by guest lecturers,<br />

students examined artists’ books in the collections of<br />

the Arts <strong>Library</strong>, Louise M. Darling Biomedical <strong>Library</strong><br />

History and Special Collections for the Sciences,<br />

A Broader Reach – A Personal<br />

Just as not all books can be defined by the traditional description of printed pages containing<br />

content bound together within two covers, not all library instructional sessions<br />

can be characterized as students, staff, or faculty sitting across a desk or in a classroom<br />

learning about library collections and services from a librarian.<br />

(l-r) Rebecca Liu, Inextricable, 2008; Paul Kim, Untitled, 2008; Joanna Rodriguez, LA by Bus, 2008<br />

Collections and gained a sense of the richness and<br />

diversity of these materials, particularly with regard to<br />

book artists active in Los Angeles and California. They<br />

also met a real book artist; Barbara Drucker, professor<br />

of painting and drawing in the Department of Art,<br />

talked about one of her own creations and also about<br />

altered books (for more on altered books, see the article<br />

on page nine on acquisitions with the university<br />

librarian’s discretionary fund).<br />

For their final assignment, students had the choice of<br />

making their own artist’s book or giving a presentation<br />

on a book artist or artist’s book. Most chose to make a<br />

book; through unusual combinations of content, structures,<br />

and images, the students commented on topics<br />

ranging from the birth of Venus to fashion to dreaming.<br />

The creative, unique results were displayed in an exhibit<br />

at the Research <strong>Library</strong>, which then traveled to the<br />

Biomedical <strong>Library</strong>.


Touch<br />

{ <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Librarian</strong> } progress report 2008-09 page 13<br />

More traditional library<br />

instruction also took place,<br />

as the figure of nearly<br />

twenty-five thousand participants<br />

on the statistics page<br />

makes evident. In addition<br />

to regular instructional<br />

sessions for courses, the<br />

College <strong>Library</strong> offered for<br />

the first time an honors<br />

collegium, designed to assist undergraduates who<br />

planned to be involved with a major research project<br />

or to undertake an honors thesis or comprehensive<br />

project in the social and behavioral sciences. The<br />

collegium brought subject specialists in to talk about<br />

print and electronic collections in specific disciplines<br />

as well as <strong>Library</strong> experts in intellectual property management,<br />

who outlined ways that students can manage<br />

their own copyrights to ensure broad public access<br />

to published research.<br />

The ubiquity of the cellphone has long been established,<br />

and during this fiscal year the <strong>Library</strong>’s<br />

reference services expanded to add text messaging<br />

to the other methods – online chat, email, in person,<br />

and on the phone – by which users can obtain assistance.<br />

Begun as a pilot focused on student athletes,<br />

whose busy travel schedules make them even more<br />

reliant on their phones than typical students, the<br />

service expanded to the entire <strong>UCLA</strong> community<br />

as of Fall 2008.<br />

In addition, reference assistance via online chat<br />

expanded to round-the-clock service seven days a week<br />

as of January 2009. Together with the other University<br />

of California libraries, the <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> joined the<br />

Online Computing <strong>Library</strong> Center’s 24/7 Reference<br />

Cooperative, through which librarians worldwide<br />

answer informational and research questions from<br />

<strong>UCLA</strong> students, faculty, and staff. Any questions that<br />

can’t be answered by an information specialist at<br />

another institution are referred back to the <strong>UCLA</strong><br />

<strong>Library</strong> for follow-up by a librarian here.<br />

Though broad descriptions are useful in setting the<br />

stage for the <strong>Library</strong>’s service-related accomplishments<br />

during this fiscal year, one specific anecdote highlights<br />

the real meaning that abstract word “service” had for<br />

a particular user.<br />

Guillaume Sutre, <strong>UCLA</strong> professor of violin and first<br />

violin in the Ysaye Quartet, sent an urgent email to<br />

music librarian Gordon Theil one Monday afternoon<br />

in March, explaining that his quartet’s luggage hadn’t<br />

arrived in Montreal, where they were playing that<br />

night, and one of the parts he was to play, the Bartok<br />

string quartet No.6, was in the luggage.<br />

None of the music shops in Montreal had the part,<br />

so as a last resort, Sutre asked if someone in the<br />

Music <strong>Library</strong> could scan the part from its collections<br />

and email it to him as a PDF. Within two hours, the<br />

part was scanned and the PDF sent. Several hours<br />

later a follow-up email arrived from the musician:<br />

“just played the Bartok, thank you so much for your<br />

help. Without you I would have been in big trouble;<br />

you saved our concert!”<br />

Now that’s service!

Darwin’s On the Origin<br />

of Species<br />

February 2009<br />

Louise M. Darling Biomedical <strong>Library</strong><br />

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the publication<br />

of Charles Darwin’s landmark work On the Origin<br />

of Species (1859) as well as the author’s two-hundredth<br />

birthday, the Biomedical <strong>Library</strong> exhibited its two copies<br />

of the first edition from History and Special Collections<br />

for the Sciences, together with a portrait of Darwin<br />

close to the age at which he wrote it.<br />

{ <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Librarian</strong> } progress report 2008-09 page 14<br />

This photograph was taken by Jonathan Wilson, instructional technology services and support coordinator<br />

with <strong>Library</strong> Computing Services, as part of his ongoing One/Day Project. The complete project can be<br />

viewed online at .<br />

One of the copies is from the collection of Dr. John<br />

Benjamin, a member of the first undergraduate class to graduate from the Westwood campus. Dr. Benjamin and<br />

his wife, Mae, donated their extraordinary medical history collection to the Biomedical <strong>Library</strong> in 1962.<br />

The other, from the collection of former <strong>UCLA</strong> Chancellor and ardent <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> supporter Franklin D.<br />

Murphy, came by a more circuitous route. Myron Prinzmetal, a clinical professor of cardiology at <strong>UCLA</strong> as well<br />

as an avid book collector, presented Dr. Murphy with his copy of the Darwin book when Dr. Murphy became<br />

chancellor. Dr. Murphy thanked him and promptly gave it to the Biomedical <strong>Library</strong>.<br />

Powell <strong>Library</strong> Rotunda<br />

In 1948 – twenty-nine years after <strong>UCLA</strong>’s opening in September 1919 as a “junior branch”<br />

of the University of California’s Berkeley campus – <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Librarian</strong> Lawrence Clark Powell<br />

established the University Archives. Though twenty-nine years was not much time for a<br />

person, family, or even a university campus to develop a “history,” Powell understood the<br />

value and necessity of establishing an archival program for <strong>UCLA</strong>.<br />

Because of Powell’s vision, anyone interested in the history of <strong>UCLA</strong> has access to a<br />

wealth of archival materials, a sampling of which were on display in this exhibit. Materials<br />

collected by the University Archives include correspondence files of the chancellors, deans, directors, and chairs;<br />

minutes of departmental meetings; and records of administrative units and academic departments. Biographical<br />

files on persons affiliated with <strong>UCLA</strong>, photographs, moving image and audio recordings of sports and campus<br />

events, memorabilia, and architectural histories of the campus are also collected.<br />

Rio de Janeiro is a magical place, a city of fabled beauty and<br />

dramatic contrasts, where nature and the human hand have<br />

joined to create a landscape of panoramic views and iconic<br />

images – Guanabara Bay, the peaks of Sugarloaf and Corcovado,<br />

the arcos of the eighteenth-century aqueduct, the Avenidas<br />

Rio Branco and Beira-Mar, the statue of Christ the Redeemer,<br />

historic churches, and hilltop shantytowns known as favelas.<br />

This exhibit showed how over the past two hundred years artists<br />

and photographers have repeatedly been drawn to these images<br />

in a process of icon building within a dynamic context of urban<br />

growth and modernization. Printed books, periodicals, and pho-<br />

Giving Opportunities<br />

Collection Endowment Initiative<br />

The Collection Endowment Initiative provides critically needed funds to<br />

acquire, preserve, and make accessible library materials in a particular subject<br />

area of interest. Collection endowments begin at $50,000, and the<br />

<strong>Library</strong> invites donors to make a single gift or to build an endowed fund<br />

over several years. Special bookplates reflecting the interests of the philanthropist<br />

are designed in consultation with the donor and affixed to each<br />

printed item added to <strong>Library</strong> collections that was made possible by his or<br />

her generosity.<br />

Center for Primary Research and Training<br />

The Center for Primary Research and Training offers <strong>UCLA</strong> graduate students<br />

the opportunity to work with primary source materials in <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong> special<br />

collections, thereby integrating these rare and unique materials further<br />

into the teaching and research mission of the university. Support for this<br />

program provides funding for five to ten participants each quarter and offers<br />

a special naming opportunity to interested donors.

Behind the Bytes<br />

“When I first heard Mexican ranchera music, I was just fascinated<br />

by the accordion players and their wonderful polkas,” said Chris<br />

Strachwitz, who initially ran across the music in the late 1940s on<br />

a Santa Paula, California, radio station. “I couldn’t understand the<br />

lyrics, but it had the same soulful feeling as other vernacular music.”<br />

By the 1960s Strachwitz had started collecting the music<br />

seriously, scouring record stores, jukebox companies, radio<br />

stations, and people’s homes, mainly in South Texas, to<br />

find records. He also convinced record companies to<br />

sell him their 78 rpm records, which were no longer<br />

being recorded and were stored away in<br />

warehouses. In 1995 Strachwitz established<br />

the Arhoolie Foundation to document,<br />

present, preserve, and disseminate<br />

authentic traditional and regional<br />

vernacular music, including his own<br />

remarkable collection.<br />

Now these rare and fragile recordings,<br />

many of which were at risk of disappearing,<br />

have been digitized and made<br />

available through a search interface and<br />

Web archive developed by the <strong>UCLA</strong> <strong>Library</strong>’s<br />

Digital <strong>Library</strong> Program. This collaborative project also involved the<br />

Arhoolie Foundation, which provided the collection; Los Tigres Del<br />

Norte Foundation, which donated major funding; and <strong>UCLA</strong>’s Chicano<br />

Studies Research Center, which brought all the parties together.<br />

The Fund for Folk Culture, National Endowment for the Humanities,<br />

National Endowment for the Arts, Grammy Foundation, Lucasfilm<br />

Foundation, and others also provided funding for the project.<br />

Accessible through the Strachwitz Frontera Collection of Mexican and<br />

Mexican American Recordings at are<br />

more than forty-one thousand recordings, a treasure trove of historical<br />

Spanish-language songs dating from the early 1900s to the 1950s.<br />

<strong>UCLA</strong><br />

World’s Largest Online Archive of Mexican and<br />

Mexican American Recordings<br />

The collection encompasses a vast array of musical and performance<br />

styles, including early corridos, boleros, sones, patriotic speeches, and<br />

comedy skits. Among its many gems are the first known recordings in<br />

1908 of the mariachi group Cuarteto Coculense in Mexico City, the<br />

first recordings in 1928 by Tejano music legend Lydia Mendoza and her<br />

family, and the first recordings<br />

in 1937 by accordion pioneer<br />

Narciso Martinez.<br />

The singers and musicians<br />

who made these records helped<br />

popularize and preserve a number<br />

of traditions that constitute<br />

the roots of current Mexican<br />

and Mexican American music.<br />

Many of these records are one<br />

of a kind and were originally<br />

recorded by companies that no<br />

longer exist.<br />

Scholars throughout the nation are already using the archive for<br />

their research. At <strong>UCLA</strong>, brothers Jorge and Luis Herrera, who also<br />

are pursuing musical careers, have used the archive both in their<br />

research and in their creative endeavors. Jorge, who is working on<br />

a doctorate in ethnomusicology, is writing his dissertation on how<br />

norteño and other traditional Mexican music styles changed when<br />

Mexican musicians crossed into the United States. Luis, who used<br />

the archive to complete his master’s degree in Latin American<br />

studies at <strong>UCLA</strong>, said the brothers also have used the songs as a<br />

source of inspiration.<br />

“If it wasn’t for the Frontera Collection, there’s no way a common<br />

person could get their hands on this kind of music,” said Luis,<br />

who belongs to the norteño band Los Hermanos Herrera. “It’s a<br />

little treasure chest of music that very few people know about.”
