*Nominations for FACET open for 2002

The Faculty Colloquium on Excellence in Teaching (FACET) is now soliciting nominations for the FACET Class of 2002.

Having grown to more than 320 members since 1989, FACET is committed to teaching and learning excellence. Members serve as catalysts for students and faculty, are creative in course preparation and presentation, and demonstrate skill in integrating instruction, research and scholarship. In addition, they champion campus, state, regional and national issues that support teaching and learning excellence.

Acknowledging that there are many different approaches to teaching excellence, the FACET selection process is based on principles of inclusivity and diversity. In the words of John Woodcock, FACET Class of 1998, FACET is an Academy in which there are:

no lines between new and old members,
no lines between campuses,
no lines between disciplines,
no lines between the possible and the impossible

New members will be inducted at the annual FACET retreat at the Fourwinds Resort in southern Indiana near Bloomington. The 2002 dates are May 17-19. At the retreat, they will participate in workshops and discussions with other FACET members and higher education leaders. They will address collegiate teaching challenges, and develop and share strategies that enhance pedagogy and practice. During the academic year, FACET faculty will be invited to workshops and symposia related to teaching and learning enhancement.

Anyone can nominate a colleague, although candidates may not self-nominate. Candidates can be tenured, tenure-track or clinical faculty, librarians, or full-time lecturers. For more details, visit the FACET website located at and click on the "Nominations" link.

*IUPUI University Library hosts Herron Printmaking display

The Herron School of Art Printmaking Program is the focus of a display of student art at the IUPUI University Library through the month of October. The prints featured in the display are representative of a spectrum of subjects, including abstracts, landscapes, fantasy and humor. Two of the student art prints also reflect themes of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.

A wide variety of techniques and images are encompassed in the print creations by the Herron printmaking classes, under the instruction of Professor David Morrison. He states, "The Herron program curriculum provides intensive experience in lithography and etching at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. Students acquire deeper expertise through courses in monotype, woodcut, and silkscreen."

The Herron School of Art Printmaking Program display is available for public viewing in the Level One Lobby of the University Library, 755 West Michigan Street, during regular hours. For further information call (317) 278-0232.

*Workshop on Linking to Full-text Journal Articles

Linking You With Your Full Text Articles"
Indiana Online Users Group (IOLUG)
November 2, 2001

At the Indiana Wesleyan University Conference Center, 3777 Priority Way South Drive, Indianapolis, Indiana

The ability to access thousands of full text articles online has provided both opportunities and challenges for librarians. How can we locate these articles through our online catalogs? If WE don't know what we have, how will we serve our patrons? Will new technology solutions be the answer? Join us as we look at the issues, emerging technology solutions, such as SFX and Serials Solutions, and receive practical advice from the trenches. The morning will begin with keynote speaker Nancy John (University of Illinois, Chicago) who will provide an overview of this hot topic. The afternoon will follow with a reality check, as IUPUI's Robin Crumrin, and Notre Dame's Carol Richter lead us through their own libraries' decision making processes in selecting technology solutions to this library dilemma.

*Upcoming event at the Schurz Library, IUSB

Elizabeth Johnson from the Lilly Library at Indiana University Bloomington will speak on Thursday, October 18th at 7:30 p.m. in the Schurz Library atrium. Her topic will be, " For your Amusement and Instruction: Children's Literature in the Lilly Library Collections." This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Schurz Library and the School of Education. Reception follows.

Elizabeth Johnson is head of technical services at the Lilly Library, Indiana University, Bloomington. She holds an undergraduate degree in linguistics and an M.L.S. from the University of Texas at Austin. Before becoming a librarian she worked for rare book dealers in London, England, and Austin, Texas. She is the author of For Your Instruction and Amusement: The Elisabeth Ball Collection of Historical Children's Materials (Bloomington, Ind.: The Lilly Library, 1987) and has served as curator of exhibitions of children's materials from the Lilly Library collections in Bloomington, Cambridge, England, and Japan.

The Lilly Library includes some of North America's most important resources for the study of historical children's materials. The library's holdings in children's materials stem from J.K. Lilly's own collections. He was particularly interested in boys' adventures stories, but his collections of British and American literature contained children's classics as well. Other important collections of children's materials acquired by the library over the years include works illustrated or written by Howard Pyle; a nearly complete collection of works illustrated by N.C. Wyeth; an extensive collection of editions of Clement C. Moore's A Visit from St. Nicholas; and production materials for movable toy books by Lothar Meggendorfer. In 1983 the Elisabeth Ball collection, was presented to the Lilly Library. This world-renowned library consists of approximately 8,500 books and related juvenile materials such as hornbooks, paper dolls, and games, and 1,223 manuscripts. The books date primarily from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, but there are items from as early as the sixteenth century and as late as the mid-twentieth century. Major strengths of the collection are eighteenth-century imprints; fairy tales; cries; chapbooks; books of instruction; poetry and verse; history, geography, and travel; nursery rhymes and alphabets; games; and toy and movable books. The 438-piece manuscript nursery library made by Jane Johnson for her children in the mid eighteenth century is the most unique part of the Ball collection. In 1996, the bequest to the Lilly Library of Ruth E. Adomeit's collections of miniature books and American juvenile books added significantly to the library's holdings. The Lilly Library is committed to acquiring additional children's materials by gift and purchase, adding new items regularly to the 12,000 books and games and 1,250 manuscripts now in the library.
