Whiting Tennis Exhibit

The Mark O. Hatfield Library is housing a temporary exhibit of Whiting Tennis, a contemporary mixed media artist from Seattle, in conjunction with the Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University.  While the main Whiting Tennis exhibit is held at the Hallie Ford Museum January 18th through March 23rd (2014), we have one 3-dimensional art work and two paintings on display near the entrance of the library.

The architectural forms that are commonly present throughout Tennis’s work are abstracts of human and animal characteristics. They consist of repurposed wood or collaged prints made from wood grain.

For more details about the Whiting Tennis exhibit, visit http://www.willamette.edu/arts/hfma/exhibitions/library/2013-14/whiting_tennis.html.

Below are a few photos from the exhibit, and some suggested books from our library that compliment the exhibit.

Brownbag Discussion with Former Staff to Senator Hatfield

BA feature-length documentary film highlighting the leadership and career of the late Senator Mark O. Hatfield will also premiere Tuesday, November 19 in Portland.

In conjunction with this event, the Mark O. Hatfield Library and University Archives are pleased to announce that several former Congressional staff members to Senator Hatfield, including a number of WU Alums, will be reuniting on campus and making themselves available for a conversation about Senator Hatfield.  This will take place on November 18th at 12-1pm in the Hatfield Room of the library. This gathering will provide an opportunity for an informal discussion of the Senator, his career, and most importantly, the staffers’ personal experiences working alongside the Senator through many incredible moments in Oregon and United States history.

Please bring your own lunch and lots of questions for this causal get-together. Light refreshments will be provided.  For additional information please contact Mary McRobinson, University Archivist, 503-370-6764; <mmcrobin@willamette.edu>

Information on The Hatfield Project and documentary film The Gentleman of the Senate: Oregon’s Mark Hatfield, including ticket information, can be found at: http://hatfieldfilm.com

Update for the New Catalog

orbis-exlibrisThe shared catalog of the Orbis Cascade Alliance, known more commonly as SUMMIT, has had some major changes lately.

The second of the four “phases” of the change in catalogs has begun.  The second group of libraries have begun to upload their old local catalog content into the new shared catalog.  The go-live date for the new libraries to publicly appear in the new catalog is December.

Why is this significant?  The second group of libraries is very large, so a sizable chunk of new library records will appear in the new catalog around December.  This will increase the amount of materials that one can borrow through the new catalog interface instead of being bounced to the old Summit catalog system.  In essence, this will make one’s use of the new system more efficient and ultimately more pleasant.  As more libraries join, the need to use the old catalog will naturally decrease.

Libraries in each group (cohort) are listed below along with their go-live dates.

It is important to remember that a major purpose for this new catalog is to remove the need for local catalogs for each institution.  We are attempting to share one catalog resource with 37 member institutions.

Assignment Calculator Tool Updated

We have updated our Assignment Calculator tool to offer even more accountability and support to help you complete your assignments from start to finish.

The assignment calculator is a simple tool that students and faculty can use to help calculate when parts of a research paper or assignment should be worked on and completed.  Basically, all you need to do is plug in the beginning date of an assignment and the due date, and it does the rest for you!

Then the calculator lists all of the steps needed to complete your assignment and when each step should be done.  Below is an example.  This is a wonderful tool to help with time management!

Last year we used a bare bones structure, as outlined in our blog entry.  This year you can create an account which will email you notification of what you should be doing, the days left to complete the step, and the time you should spend on this step.

Searching Specific Journal Titles in Ebsco

ebsco-logo

Here’s a trick of the trade that you might find helpful.  Many of our databases can search within specific journals, such as the Ebsco databases (e.g. Academic or Business Source Premier).  If a journal is covered (indexed) in Ebsco, you can browse through that journal by year or volume/issue number.  Better yet, you can search within that specific journal .  Here’s how…

Click PUBLICATIONS at the top of the screen, type in your journal title under BROWSING, and click the BROWSE button.  You will get a list of journals that fit your search criteria.

Click the title of the journal you’re after.  You will have the option to search within this specific journal or browse through it by year or volume/issue.

If you choose to search within a specific journal, you will see the initials JN which stands for “journal” added to the search box followed by the journal title in quotes.  The example below is for the journal called JAMA, which is an acronym for Journal of the American Medical Association.  The full title of the journal is called JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association.  You can also search within several journals at one time in Ebsco databases.

Government Info during the 2013 Shutdown

government-shutdown-2013government-reopen-2013

Thankfully, the government shutdown is now over and most of the “free” resources we regularly access are back online.  We just want to remind you that we have a Government Information guide that will help lead you to available government information after the 2013 Government Shutdown at http://libguides.willamette.edu/gov-info

The government shutdown may have impacted your research, depending on your research interests. If you depended on sites like the USGS, US Census Bureau, USDA, NASA, NLM (National Library of Medicine’s PubMed,, and Whitehouse.gov you will have encounter messages like the ones below. While Willamette relies a great deal on e-resources from government web site, we still do get selected print materials as do many of our Summit libraries since we are apart of the Federal Depository Library Program.  We also have a great deal of electronic documents such as ERIC (Dept of Education) and PubMed (aka Medline) through our subscription databases. So while official web sites and search engines may have been down, check our library catalog for print materials, and our databases for electronic materials.

Archives & Special Collections Constance Fowler

(Excerpts from the historical notes of Constance Fowler’s Collection in the Archives & Special Collections.)

constance-fowler-waller-hall-artThe Constance Fowler Collection consists of her biographical records, correspondence, exhibition catalogues and fliers, reviews, publications, manuscripts, selections from her library, as well as examples of her prints, printing blocks, paintings, and drawings.

Fowler taught art lessons in Salem for one dollar a session and, in 1935, volunteered as advisor to an art club at Willamette University. That same year, the University’s president, Bruce Baxter, hired Fowler to teach art and to establish the school’s first art department (art lessons had been taught at Willamette since the nineteenth century, by Marie Craig Le Gall and others, but there had been no department). Fowler taught at Willamette for twelve years, until 1947.

For three summers (1936, 1937, 1938), Fowler was the recipient of the prestigious (and in the Depression years highly desirable) Carnegie grants to help art teachers complete their Master’s of Fine Art degrees. Carnegie programs were offered on two campuses in the country-Harvard University and University of Oregon. Fowler studied at Oregon with the architectural philosopher W. R. B. Willcox (whom she held in highest regard throughout her life), the painter Andrew Vincent, and others. She earned her M.F.A. degree in 1940, her Master’s thesis project being the execution of twenty wood engravings of historic sites in the Willamette Valley, which she published (with text) as The Old Days. In and Near Salem. Oregon (Frank McCaffrey’s Dogwood Press, Seattle, 1940). The book was immediately popular, respected for the quality of the prints, the design. layout, and typography of the book itself, and the historic commentary, based on original research, written by Fowler to accompany her engravings. The Old Days remained Fowler’s single most significant accomplishment; in 1969, in retirement, she arranged for the publication of seventy-five additional books, with engravings printed from the original cherry wood blocks.
