A Note from the Dean

It has been a lively Fall Quarter in the Libraries! UC’s record enrollment has resulted in

extra heavy use of all of our libraries and of our Web site. Langsam Library computers are

in constant demand and students can be found studying 24/7 in UCit@Langsam. Group

Study Rooms are full throughout the Libraries and it is rare to see an empty spot in the 90seat

computer lab in the Donald C. Harrison Health Sciences Library. Renovation of the new

space for the Albino Gorno Memorial Music (CCM) Library is proceeding on schedule with

expected completion late in December. The move from the 4th floor of Blegen Library to

the 6th floor will allow the CCM Library to operate in contiguous space rather than in two

separate wings as it does now. The centerpiece of the new CCM Library will be the handsome

Blegen Library Reading Room with tall windows, historic chandeliers, and wooden bookcases.

I invite you to sample our newest digital collection, Cooperative Engineer, which is featured in

this issue of Source. From its imaginative covers to its articles and photographs, Cooperative

Engineer offers a fascinating historical journey through the College of Engineering from 1921

to 1975 as seen through the eyes of its students and alumni.

“Freedom without Walls!”

Exhibits Commemorate the 20 th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

November 9, 2009, marked the 20 th anniversary of

the fall of the Berlin Wall. To commemorate this

important event, the Libraries created two exhibits for

display in Langsam Library through fall quarter.

“Freedom without Walls!: In Commemoration of

the Fall of the Berlin Wall, 1989-2009,” on display

on Langsam Library’s fourth floor lobby, features a

Berlin Wall timeline tracing the history of the Wall.

Spanning over 60 years, the timeline begins in 1945

at the end of World War II when the Allied Powers

(France, England, the United States, and the Soviet

Union) split Germany into four occupation zones,

and its capital, Berlin, into four sectors. Photographs

along the timeline show significant moments in the

life of the Berlin Wall, including its building in August

1961, President Kennedy’s 1963 “Ich bin ein Berliner!”

speech, President Reagan’s 1987 “Mr. Gorbachev, tear

down this wall!” speech, and the tearing down of the

Wall in 1989. The timeline ends in 2009 as the world

celebrates the 20 th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin

showcases library resources about the Berlin Wall. “Freedom without Walls!:

The Berlin Wall Remembered, 1989-2009,” displays books, movies, song,

and art that tell the story of the Berlin Wall and those who lived with it. A bibliography is available in print at the

exhibit and online at

Created by Olga Hart, Instruction Librarian, Melissa Cox Norris, Director of Library Communications, and

Richard Schade, Professor of German Studies and Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany,

the exhibits take their inspiration from the “Freedom without Walls! Fall of the Berlin Wall 1989-2009”

Saturday, October 17, was the third annual Books by the Banks: Cincinnati USA Books Festival and was

held at Duke Energy Convention Center from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The day-long festival featured

over 90 regional and national authors, book signings, author panels, and activities for the entire family

to enjoy in the Target Kids’ Corner.

At the festival, attendees met authors to purchase signed copies of their books. The writers represented

various genres, including fiction, non-fiction, cooking, children’s literature, sports, and more.

Nationally known authors such as Jennifer Weiner, Garth Stein, and Jeannette Walls joined local favorites Greg Rhodes, Ellen

Schreiber, and Thayne Maynard to celebrate the “joy and reading of books.”

University of Cincinnati authors representing the McMicken College of ong>Artong>s and

Sciences (A&S), the College of Design, Architecture, ong>Artong>, and Planning, (DAAP),

and the College of Medicine were among the authors at the festival. The UC

authors were:

James Braziel, Adjunct Assistant Professor of English & Comparative Literature

in A&S. Braziel is the author of Snakeskin Road, described as a woman’s

harrowing journey of survival along a passageway of terror and hope. Braziel’s

first novel, Birmingham 35 Miles, was included in the festival last year.

Joseph Clark, Professor of Neurology in the College of Medicine. Clark’s book,

My Ambulance Education: Life and Death on the Streets of the City, describes his

experience working to pay his way through college as an ambulance attendant on

the most dangerous streets of New York beginning at the age of 18.

Melissa Kramer, fourth-year journalism student. Kramer’s first book, The Inclines

of Cincinnati, was released last March. The book, part of Arcadia’s “Images of

Rail” series, examines a time when Cincinnati’s streetcars carried locals and

tourists to the peaks of Mount Adams, Mount Auburn, Clifton, and Price Hill,

and explores reasons for the disappearance of the city’s number one tourist

attraction, the Mt. Adams

incline. Read more about

Ask A Student

What inspires someone to write and

publish a book? For Melissa Kramer,

fourth-year UC journalism student and

author of The Inclines of Cincinnati, it

was a photo of an historic incline that she

noticed in Price Hill Chili over ten years

ago. From that came the idea to write

about Cincinnati’s famous inclines.

In researching and writing her book,

published in 2009 by Arcadia Press, Kramer

tapped a wide range of resources and

expertise from the UC Libraries:

UC Students Talk about Their Library Experiences

By Pam Bach, Head of Langsam Library’s Info Commons,

Materials: From the Sanborn Historic Map

collection Kramer found a map showing

the incline station and the Lookout House at the

top of Mount Auburn. Thus began her search for finding

any physical remains of the inclines around Cincinnati. This map collection was

produced by the Sanborn Fire Insurance Company and is available online through OhioLINK’s Digital Media Center at The maps provide large scale street plans of Ohio from 1867 to 1970 and are frequently used by

researchers and historians.

Melissa Kramer in the DAAP Library

Technical equipment: Kramer’s book contains over 200 historic images of Cincinnati during the time when streetcars were the

primary mode of transportation. Kramer compiled these images from a variety of means and with help from the Libraries. From

the Circulation and Multimedia Services Department at the Walter C. Langsam Library, Kramer checked out a digital camera to

take photos of some of the remnants of the incline supporting structures that she discovered in various Cincinnati and Northern

Kentucky neighborhoods. At the Robert A. Deshon and Karl J. Schlachter Library for Design, Architecture, ong>Artong>, and Planning

(DAAP), she used the scanners and large screen monitors for what she found was the most challenging part of her project, which

was to meet the necessary image resolution requirements of the publisher. At the Student Technology Resources Center, she

digitized a film from a personal collection showing the inclines and street cars that serviced the Clifton area.

Staff: Kramer tapped the expertise and knowledge of several library staff. During her internship at the Archives and Rare

Books (ARB) Library, Kevin Grace, University Archivist and Head of the ARB Library, suggested that she publish her research

with Arcadia Press. Tom White, Head of Acquisitions and Monographs, provided historic images from his personal collection.

Elizabeth Meyer, Visual Resources Librarian in the DAAP Library, assisted Kramer with the technical details of scanning images.

As Kramer’s experience in researching and writing her book shows, when you think of libraries, think expansively. For her, the

UC Libraries were a source of research and specialized collections; multimedia equipment such as digital cameras, camcorders

and scanners; and a knowledgeable staff to help identify resources, assist with the use of technology, and share the journey that

comes with research.

The Inclines of Cincinnati is available for check-out from UC Libraries or for purchase at local book stores and online at

Cooperative Engineer Online

By Melissa Cox Norris, Director of Library Communications,

The Libraries have digitized Cooperative Engineer, a quarterly publication produced by students and alumni

of UC’s College of Engineering from 1921 to 1975.

Accessible via, each scanned

issue of Cooperative Engineer can be viewed in its entirety. The issues are also searchable

by keyword and by phrase. In addition, viewers of the collection can browse by issue


Started in 1921 to “reflect [the readers’] common interest in the University and in the

industrial and commercial world with which they are brought in contact,” Cooperative

Engineer offers historical material on the College of Engineering, the UC campus, the

City of Cincinnati, and on world events. It chronicles the development of engineering

and industrial processes and provides insights into student life and social customs of

the time. ong>Artong>icles describe many of the 20 th century’s major technical accomplishments

including advancements in aviation, space exploration, and the creation of the atom

bomb. ong>Artong>icles on UC athletics and social events appeal to the reader’s lighter side.

Each cover of Cooperative Engineer is skillfully illustrated and numerous images and

photographs are included throughout the publication. Original copies of Cooperative

Engineer are housed in the Archives and Rare Books Library.

“Digitization of this excellent publication was made possible by Michael and Margaret

Vol. 17 No . 1

Valentine, long-time supporters of our Engineering Library,” said Victoria A.

Montavon, Dean and University Librarian. “We are also very appreciative of the work

of Dorothy Byers, former Head of the Engineering Library, in bringing this project to fruition.”

Libraries Awarded a LSTA Grant to Digitize

Cincinnati Birth and Death Records



The Libraries were awarded a $140,437 Library Services and

Technology Act (LSTA) grant from the State Library of Ohio to

digitize the birth and death records of the City of Cincinnati from

1865 through 1908.

The 340,000 records will be scanned and made available online. The

scanning began in October 2009 with access to the records slated for

August 2010.

The birth and death records, which are part of the collections of

the Archives and Rare Books Library, are of great historical and

genealogical importance. Each birth record contains the name of

the individual along with birth date, race, gender, name and birthplace

of father and mother, occupation of father, doctor or midwife, and hospital. For

each death record the following information is available: name, age, date and cause of death,

address, occupation, race, gender, attending physician, funeral home, and place of burial.

The birth and death records are among the most heavily used materials in the Archives and Rare Books Library. In the last year,

the library received 3,000 requests for information from them, representing 75% of genealogy reference service provided to the

general public. “This scanning project will make an already valuable, much-used resource widely accessible to genealogists and

the general public, as well as to social historians, epidemiologists, and public health historians,” said Victoria A. Montavon, Dean

and University Librarian.

In addition to providing wider access to researchers in Ohio and around the world, digitizing the Cincinnati birth and death

records will also preserve the 340,000 index cards created several decades ago by the Cincinnati Health Department after the

original ledger volumes, also preserved in the Archives and Rare Books Library, became too fragile to handle.

The LSTA program is funded through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and administered through the State

Library of Ohio.

Conference Participation

“Going above and beyond the call of duty” is a trait used to describe the latest winners

of the Libraries Quality Service Award – Jay Sinnard and representatives on the Higher

Learning Commission (HLC) Site Resource Task Force:

Cheryl Albrecht, John Borntrager, and Debbie Tenofsky.


Jay Sinnard, Operations Manager of the Student Technology

Resources Center (STRC), is known throughout the Libraries

and UC campus as a role model for providing quality

service. He delivers personal service to those who check

out multimedia equipment or use the various technology

resources of the STRC. Never settling for “good enough,” if Jay

sets up a sound system, recorder, or camera, it will work properly

or he will fix it. Jay’s nominator described him as “a valued colleague

who has come to the rescue on numerous occasions.”

Cheryl Albrecht, Associate Dean of Library Services, was thanked by the visit

coordinator for her help in hosting the Commission’s Accreditation Team

when they visited UC in April 2009 and for showing “exceptional and welcoming hospitality.” Debbie

Tenofsky, Head of Reference and Information Services, and John Borntrager, Research Associate in the

Recent Library Acquisitions

By Mark Palkovic, Head of the Albino Gorno Memorial Music Library,

New Special Collections Received by the Albino Gorno Memorial Music (CCM) Library...

Gorno Notebooks

The CCM Library received an interesting donation of notebooks about library namesake

Albino Gorno (1859-1944), written by one of his students, Mary Venable. Dr. Gorno was

a professor of piano and a highly-regarded accompanist who also served as Dean of the

College of Music of Cincinnati.

Born near Cremona, Italy, he was selected in 1881 by the prima donna opera singer Adelina

Patti to serve as her accompanist on a five-month tour of the United States. The following

year, he was engaged by the College of Music as principal of its piano department. Of the 62

years that he was a faculty member at the College, 40 were spent as its dean.

Gorno was eminently successful as a teacher of piano, as a pianist, and as a conductor. In

June 1924, Signor Gorno received the honorary degree of Doctor of Music from the College

of Music of Cincinnati. After his death, the Albino Gorno Memorial Music Library was

founded on May 31, 1949.

Mary Venable’s three-volume

notebooks, titled Studies with Gorno,

consist of a diary from 1896 to

1900 that includes remarks made

by Signor Gorno during her lessons

with him at the College of Music, a

diary of her hours spent practicing,

and an account of her graduation

examination and exercises.Volume

One is hand-written in ink. Volumes

Gorno Notebooks

Two and Three are typescript. All

three volumes include photos and

musical illustrations. Volume Three discusses Gorno’s method book, Material for the Study

of Pianoforte Pedals, published in 1900 by Willis Music Company in Cincinnati. Mary

Venable worked as Gorno’s secretary and editor (in her words, “critical amanuensis”) in the

preparation of his book.

After graduation, Ms. Venable accepted a piano teaching position at the Oxford College for

Young Ladies in Oxford, Ohio, remaining there for the academic year 1900-1901. She was

later on the faculty of the College of Music of Cincinnati. There is little more known about


The notebooks were donated to the library by the Edendale Library Friends Society of the

Los Angeles Public Library system, which received them as an anonymous gift. Suzi Rogers,

volunteer for the Friends, found a reference to the Gorno Library at UC and contacted the

library. We are indebted to Ms. Rogers for the gift of this remarkable piece of local history

that somehow made its way across the country and is now home again.

The notebooks have been transferred to the holdings of the University Archives and are

available for consultation in the Archives and Rare Books Library, eighth floor of Blegen Library.

Accessioned as UA-09-30, they complement two other primary collections of Gorno material, the

Gorno Brothers Collection, UA-81-15, and the Albino Gorno Music Collection, UA-03-22.

While working with colleague

Melinda Boyd on the second

edition of her book, Women

in Music: A Research and

Information Guide, Karin

Pendle, UC Music Professor

Emerita of Musicology, relied

heavily on the resources and

services of the Albino Gorno

Memorial Music (CCM)

Library. “As so often in the past,

the CCM Library proved to be an invaluable resource—in fact, we could not have

accomplished our work without the assistance of Head of the CCM Library Mark

Palkovic and his staff, and the privilege of working in a library that included so much

information on women’s work in music,” Dr. Pendle said.

A library supporter and frequent patron of the CCM Library, Dr. Pendle recently wrote to

former students inviting them to consider making a gift to the CCM Library: “I am sure the CCM

Library has contributed greatly to your work, too. Maybe you remember the ‘light bulb’ moments that came

to you as you consulted library materials, or appreciated the chance to browse the latest periodicals, or listen to your favorite

performers in CCM’s growing CD collection. The library was there for you throughout your years at CCM, just as it was there for

us as we worked on our book.”

Frank and Karin Pendle

Dr. Pendle’s fundraising effort will assist in updating the furnishings and equipment for the CCM Library when it moves in

December from its current location on the fourth floor of Blegen Library to the sixth floor. Naming opportunities for significant

donations to the CCM Library include the public service desk area, the foyer, the reading room, and the library classroom.

To contribute to the CCM Library Improvement Fund or another library fund, please use the donation envelope enclosed in

Source or contact Margaret W. Wolf, CFRE, Director of Development, at (513)556-0055 or

As Dr. Pendle wrote: “contributions to the campaign will help renovate this attractive new library area for the benefit of CCM’s

current and future students and faculty.”
