INDIANA UNIVERSITY LIBRARY NEWS*****January 30, 2004, Vol. 31, Number 4



EDITOR'S CORRECTION: In the January 16th edition of IUL News, it was reported that Anthony Tedeschi had taken a new position at the Lilly Library. This is correct; however, the editor regretfully failed to report that, in addition to a Liberal Ars degree from Northampton Community College, Mr. Tedeschi also earned a B.A. from Rutgers University. Please excuse this omission.

The Libraries is pleased to announce that the recipients of the 2003/2004 Herbert S. White Collaborative Award are Kris Brancolini, director of the Digital Library Program, and Rachael Stoeltje, film archivist. The Herbert S. White Collaborative Award recognizes collaboration among IUB Libraries employees who improve service to students and faculty to support the teaching and learning mission of Indiana University.

The $2,500 award will be used to promote the Golden Age of Hollywood film series, a communitywide event that showcases the Lilly Library’s David S. Bradley Film Collection. The film series was launched in 2003 by Kris, Rachael, and Dr. Chris Anderson, professor of film studies in the Department of Communication and Culture.

The film series promotes and improves access to this distinctive collection of historic films by showing free monthly matinees at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington. Hosted by Dr. Chris Anderson, the films are open to students, faculty, and the entire community.

Congratulations to Kris and Rachael, and thank you to all the applicants.

*Five monographs, illustrated by renowned African American artists:
Exhibited February 2004 at the Indiana University Lilly Library, Lincoln room; and displayed individually in turn at the African American Cultural Center Library; January- June 2004.

The Limited Editions Club Collection was started in 1929. The private enterprise of Mr.. George Macy, the books were commissioned as finely rendered editions of classic works for distribution to a limited number of subscribers. Each volume bore illustrations by highly regarded contemporary artists. The Club was first carried on by Macy’s own family and has endured to the present in hands as faithful to its qualities. In its entirety, the volumes published by the Club beautifully showcase the work of many accomplished writers, printers and modern artists.

The Lilly Library and African American Cultural Center Library are pleased to present five African American works from among those Club editions, which Indiana University is fortunate in having acquired.

View the exhibit at the African American Cultural Center Library, and please join us for a BOOK TALK:
