World Water Day-March 22, 2011

World Water Day logo
Check out the Library's display about World Water Day located on the east end of the first floor of the Library.

About World Water Day

This is the first time in human history that most of the world's population live in cities: 3.3 billion people ...and the urban landscape continues to grow.
38% of the growth is represented by expanding slums, while the city populations are increasing faster than city infrastructure can adapt.

The objective of World Water Day 2011 is to focus international attention on the impact of rapid urban population growth, industrialization and uncertainties caused by climate change, conflicts and natural disasters on urban water systems. This year theme, Water for cities: responding to the urban challenge, aims to spotlight and encourage governments, organizations, communities, and individuals to actively engage in addressing the challenges of urban water management.

    OhioLINK warning message

    Many users requesting materials through OhioLINK are currently getting an error message stating that "We recommend that you close this web page and do not continue to this website."

    Here is the explanation from OhioLINK:

    We installed a new SSL certificate on the Central Catalog and this is causing a problem with IE and Firefox browsers when hitting the Request This Item button. A screen comes up saying "There is a problem with this website's security certificate".
    There's three options offered:

    Click here to close this webpage
    Continue to this website (not recommended)
    More information

    If the user clicks on "Continue to this website", they will get a pop-up window, where they need to click on "Yes" to continue. This will take them to the
    appropriate authentication screen. The user will then click on their institution and will again get the pop-up window from IE or Firefox. Answer "yes" again and you will be taken to the screen where you enter your name and ID. The user will enter their name and ID (and PIN if called for), selects a pickup location and hit the Submit button. Again you will get the popup window. Answer "Yes" again and the request will be made.

    We apologize for all these extra steps to get the request completed. We're working with III on fixing this and hope to have it resolved soon.

    Start Fresh @ Cleveland Public Library

    September is "fine free" with a "no questions asked" amnesty period at Cleveland Public Library. You remove the embarrassment and fear of paying large fines as obstacles to the return of long-overdue materials. Materials returned need to be in good condition; no questions will be asked nor fines charged.

    The purpose of the amnesty is to promote the return of needed Library materials, to promote the increased use of the Library, and to prepare patrons for a materials recovery program set to begin in October. The amnesty does not include overdue fines still on record from previously returned materials.

    For patrons who owe fines or fees on previously returned materials, we will make it easy for you to START FRESH. Pay 50% of the balance, and the remaining 50% will be waived, with the exception of lost items that belong to other CLEVNET libraries and process fees from other CLEVNET libraries.

    For questions about the "Start Fresh" amnesty rules, please contact the Lending Department at Main Library: (216) 623-2872.

    Check your Scholar account for your due dates

    Due to several recent "phishing" attacks, some overdue and courtesy notices from the Michael Schwartz Library, are either being delayed (for up to 5 days), or immediately returned as undeliverable.

    In order to avoid fines, please check your Scholar account to renew items or sign up for Library Elf, an Internet-based tool for keeping track of what's due, overdue and ready for pickup. Users can keep track of one or more library accounts in one place and receive reminders.

    The Veterans Memorial Bridge Book is Now on SALE

    The Veterans Memorial Bridge Book
    90th Anniversary Edition by William E. Beyer

    View of the Veterans Memorial Bridge

    The Veterans Memorial Bridge, formerly known as the Detroit-Superior of High Level Bridge, is an unusual and outstanding example of early twentieth-century bridge engineering. The double decked structure spans the Cuyahoga River Valley adjacent to downtown Cleveland, Ohio and consists of twelve concrete arch approach spans with lengths varying between 80 feet and 180 feet, and a 591-foot long steel arch main river span. The bridge was constructed as a replacement for the old Superior Viaduct, which spanned the Cuyahoga River immediately north of the Detroit-Superior Bridge. The upper deck of the structure was designed to carry highway and pedestrian traffic whereas the lower deck was designed for streetcar traffic. The approaches to the lower deck of the structure included subway tunnels and passenger stations for the streetcars. The first traffic crossed the upper deck of the new bridge in November 1917, and the first streetcars crossed the lower deck in December 1917.

    The History of the Veterans Memorial Bridge: 90th Anniversary Edition by William Beyer documents the history of the original construction of the bridge and the two major rehabilitations - the first was done from 1967 to 1969 and the second was done from 1995 to 1997. Some technical information is included, which may be of interest to some readers. However, the major emphasis of the book is the documentation of the history of the bridge and the surrounding community with photographs. The photographs offer a unique opportunity to glimpse into previous eras in Cleveland. It is hoped that the reader will enjoy a journey through the planning, design, construction and rehabilitation of this structure - and develop an understanding and appreciation for the importance of maintaining and, whenever feasible, preserving notable structures such as the Detroit-Superior Bridge, which remain today.

    Open Access Day at OSU

    A program to discuss open access publishing will be held from 10:30 to noon on October 21, 2009 in Room 165 at the newly-renovated Thompson Library. Topics will include the panelists' stake in open access, the role of open access within different organizations and disciplines, and the financial sustainability of open access. Participants will be:

    - Opening Remarks, Jan Weisenberger, Senior VP, Office of Research
    - Moderator, Tom Sanville, Executive Director of OhioLINK
    - Panelist, David Huron, Professor Music and Editor, Empirical Musicology Review
    - Panelist, Scot Danforth, Associate Professor of Teaching and Learning and Editor, Disability Studies Quarterly
    - Panelist, Deborah Grzybowski, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology
    - Panelist, Donald Dean, Professor of Biochemistry
    - Panelist, Jack Ochs, American Chemical Society
    - Panelist, Daviess Menefee, Elsevier Publishing

    Open access publishing is a movement that encourages making scholarly resources more freely available over the internet. The goal is to maximize the impact of research, particularly research that has been funded with public money. One of the most notable examples of open access is the National Institute of Health Public Access Policy, which requires that funded research be made publicly available after a 12 month embargo period.
    The week of October 19 is Open Access Week, and this program is only one of many events that publishers, universities, and libraries all over the world are planning in order to highlight the movement. The Open Access Day program at OSU will be of interest to anyone involved in research and publishing throughout the university.

    President Barack Obama declares October NATIONAL INFORMATION LITERACY AWARENESS MONTH

    THE WHITE HOUSE

    Office of the Press Secretary
    _________________________________________________________
    For Immediate Release October 1, 2009

    NATIONAL INFORMATION LITERACY AWARENESS MONTH, 2009
    - - - - - - -
    BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
    A PROCLAMATION

    Every day, we are inundated with vast amounts of information. A 24-hour news cycle and thousands of global television and radio networks, coupled with an immense array of online resources, have challenged our long-held perceptions of information management. Rather than merely possessing data, we must also learn the skills necessary to acquire, collate, and evaluate information for any situation. This new type of literacy also requires competency with communication technologies, including computers and mobile devices that can help in our day-to-day decisionmaking. National Information Literacy Awareness Month highlights the need for all Americans to be adept in the skills necessary to effectively navigate the Information Age.

    Virtual JFK will be showing at the Cleveland Museum of Art

    An important and well-received documentary called Virtual JFK will be showing at the Cleveland Museum of Art June 12 ONLY.

    Combining rare footage from numerous Kennedy press conferences, in-depth interviews and a close reading of the documentary record, the film argues that critical decisions about the use of restraint and coercive diplomacy often require greater acts of courage than the use of force. Produced by fellows of the Watson Institute for International Studies, the film applies what Harvard historian Niall Ferguson calls "virtual history" to consider what President John F. Kennedy might have done in Vietnam if he had not been assassinated in 1963 and was instead re-elected in 1964. More information about the film appears below and at www.virtualjfk.com.

This index allows you to search for information about each ETD, including authors, titles, and abstracts. It does not search the full text of the ETDs.

    The OhioLINK Electronic Theses and Dissertations Center is a free, online database of more than 14,600 theses, dissertations and honors theses from 21 participating member colleges and universities. The full text is freely available for 90% of the theses and dissertations in the ETD Center.

    Ohio's colleges and universities are invited to join the OhioLINK ETD Center and have their graduate students submit their theses and dissertations electronically. Visit the FAQ to find out more about the ETD Center and how interested institutions may join.

    Sherman Alexie to speak at CPL

    Keep track of all your library books with the Library Elf

    The CSU Library has just joined Library Elf.

    Elf is an Internet-based tool for keeping track of what's due, overdue and ready for pickup. Users can keep track of one or more library accounts (Cleveland Public Library and Cuyahoga County Public Library are also on Elf) in one place and receive reminders (sometimes called pre-overdue or early notification). Reminders are sent when the user wants it -- before items are due (up to seven days advance notice, weekly notice or everyday reminders). For families or anyone who'd like reminders before an item is due (user-selectable number of days notice). If Elf is for you, sign up for an account.

Currently, the E-Book Center contains 5,000 e-books from Oxford University Press and Springer. Additional e-books and e-book collections will be added, including the Electronic Reference Books collection.

    The Fire Inside: The Story and Poetry of Nikki Giovanni

    Cleveland Public Library will host the debut stage reading of the Karamu House production of "The Fire Inside: The Story and Poetry of Nikki Giovanni," on Saturday, February 17 at 3:00 p.m. in the Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium, the Main Library, 325 Superior Avenue.

    Written by Susan Watson Turner and directed by Terrence Spivey, artistic director of Karamu, "The Fire Inside" presents an ensemble cast in a dramatization of the life and works of the dynamic African American poet. The script follows Giovanni's career from her early years in the Black Arts Movement through her writing and life today.

    The play will make its world debut in July at Cleveland's annual Ingenuity Festival.

    Giovanni was born in 1943 in Knoxville, Tennessee, but grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. She graduated with honors from Fisk University and has been on the faculty at Virginia Tech since 1987. Her fiery first book of poems, Black Feeling, Black Talk (1968) sold more than 10,000 copies. That book and others such as Re: Creation (1970), Poem of Angela Yvonne Davis (1970) and The Women and the Men (1975), comprised a powerful statement on African-American womanhood and established her as one of the leading figures of the Black Arts Movement

    An Afternoon with Keith Beauchamp

    Sunday, January 28th at 2:00 P.M.
    at the Main Library, downtown
    Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium
    East 6th Street and Superior Avenue.

    Keith Beauchamp was a 10-year-old boy growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, when he first encountered the story of Emmett Till, the black teenager murdered in Mississippi in 1955 for whistling at a white woman. Beauchamp had been leafing through a copy of Jet magazine when he saw two photographs that shocked him: "Here was this angelic face" on one page, "and on the other side was this disfigured face..."

    Those images stayed with Keith Beauchamp throughout his upbringing in the Deep South and well into his adulthood. Indeed, Beauchamp has recounted his own encounters with the evils of racism. Those experiences and his subsequent research into the Till case led to his award-winning 2004 documentary, "The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till."

    And Beauchamp's documentary led to the reopening of the case almost 50 years after the heinous crime was committed.

    There were 14 white men who jumped on and beat Emmett Till senseless that day in 1955, then shot him dead. But only two men were charged with the crime. They were found not guilty. A few months later, both arrogantly admitted to a reporter from Look magazine that they had committed the crime.

    The case remained yet another dark chapter in American history until Beauchamp, after reading newspaper articles referring to the uncharged participants and witnesses who had not been questioned by police, decided to head to Mississippi to speak to those who'd been there that day. The interviews he obtained were cited by the United States Department of Justice as a major factor in reopening the investigation nearly half a century later.

    Keith Beauchamp is currently collaborating with Pulitzer Prize winner James Alan Macpherson on a novel about his quest for answers in the Till case and its impact on American society.

    Michael Naranjo, a Tewa Indian of the Santa Clara Pueblo, lost his sight in Vietnam, but he did not lose his dream of becoming a sculptor. His works are diverse in theme, fluid in their movement, each telling a story all its own. Michael's pieces are included in the collections of The Vatican, The White House, and The Heard Museum. Robert Thurmer, Director of the Art Gallery at Cleveland State University, will discuss the artist and his work during the program.

    Parking is available at the corner of Chester Avenue & East 24th Street. To reserve a seat or for more information, call 216-875-9734 or email b.florjancic@csuohio.edu.

    OhioLINK is Now Providing 10 Million Unique Titles

    The OhioLINK Library Catalog now includes 10 million unique titles and a total of 45.5 million copies of books and other libraries materials. Ohio students, faculty, staff and others from participating libraries can request these items online and pick them up at any participating OhioLINK library in just two to three days.

    To visualize how many items 45.5 million is, imagine a bookshelf that stretches from Columbus to Portland, Maine. That would be 878 miles of shelf space, just twenty miles short of the amount needed to accommodate all 45.5 million items.*

    The 10,000,000th title is Mexican Modern: Masters of the 20th Century, essays by David Craven and Luis-Martin Lozano. It was added by The Ohio State University Libraries this month.

    But don't forget, these 45.5 million physical library items are just the beginning of what OhioLINK and Ohio's academic libraries offer students, faculty and staff. We also have a robust virtual library of 7.5 million scholarly journal articles, 19,000 electronic books, 2,000 digital videos and more. These items are accessible online 24 hours a day, seven days a week at www.ohiolink.edu and our library's Web site.

    *Using an average book width of 1.25 inches, 45.5 million books lined up side-by-side on a bookshelf would cover a distance of 898 miles. The distance from Columbus, Ohio to Portland, Maine is 878 miles according to MapQuest.com

    Cleveland Memory Exhibit at Cuyahoga County Fair

    This year's Cuyahoga County Fair (Monday, Aug. 7 - Sunday, Aug. 13) will feature an exhibit on Memories of Cleveland.

    In collaboration with local businesses, the Library has prepared an impressive display of approximately 100 historical photographs and artifacts depicting various aspects of Cleveland history. The photos feature famous Clevelanders from the worlds of sports, politics, and entertainment, as well as ordinary Clevelanders doing interesting things.

    The display will also include several oversized panels depicting the construction of the Terminal Tower building at various stages of completion.

    Library staff will be on hand at all times to answer questions about the exhibit in particular and about the Library in general.

OT assists people in developing the "skills for the job of living" necessary for independent and satisfying lives.

    Thrity UmrigarThe Friends of the Cleveland State University Library will launch a "Local Authors Book Talk" program, with novelist and journalist Thrity Umrigar, author of The Space Between Us. The program will be held on Wednesday, April 26 at the Cleveland State University Library, 2121 Euclid Avenue, Rhodes Tower, room 503, from 3:00 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. The book talk is free and open to the community.

    Ms. Umrigar will read from her new novel, which will be followed by a question and answer session. The Space Between Us tells the story of the lives of two women, one a upper middle class Bombayite and the other a domestic servant who has worked in her home for many years. It's a story about the bonds of gender and the divisions of class. Her book was the number one BookSense pick for February 2006 and has been on several regional bestseller lists.

    Copies of The Space Between Us will be available for purchase and signing after the lecture. Light refreshments will be served. Copies are also available for check out at the Cleveland State University Library.

    Thrity Umrigar is also the author of the novel Bombay Time and the memoir First Darling of the Morning. A journalist for 17 years, she now teaches creative writing at Case Western Reserve University. She has a Ph.D. in English and was a Nieman fellow at Harvard in 1999-2000.

    The Space Between Us was the number one BookSense pick for February 2006 and has been on several regional bestseller lists. The Cleveland Plain Dealer writes, "A ruminative novel . . . layered with keen, feminine insight into class and family, betrayal, guilt and love. Umrigar is at her best conveying the small moments that sustain or degrade the minuet of intimacy."

    $1,000 Grants available to CSU Faculty

    The Cleveland State University Library invites applications for the Information Literacy Small Grants Program. Grants of $1,000 will be awarded to full time faculty for course development to integrate information literacy instruction into teaching and assignments.

    Grant applications are due on March 31, 2006 for development of courses for fall 2006.

    Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information. With the increasing prevalence of online information, students demonstrate difficulty in ferreting out materials suitable for their course assignments and research papers. The small grants are intended to assist faculty in updating their courses and assignments to reflect current changes in information retrieval and use, with the goal of strengthening students' ability to locate, evaluate, understand, and effectively use information resources.

    Grant application information is available at http://www.ulib.csuohio.edu/faculty/grantann.shtml


    An Informational Literacy Review Panel, composed of faculty and Library administrators, will review the proposals. The grants will be awarded by May 1, 2006. For further information contact: George Lupone, Associate Director, University Library, g.lupone@csuohio.edu, phone: (216) 687-2475, fax: (216) 687-9380.

    Friends of the Library Book Discussion-- On Bullshit

    On Tuesday, February 28th, Richard Fox, Head of the Popular Library at Cleveland Public Library, will lead a book discussion on the title, On Bullshit, by Harry G. Frankfurt. The author, Harry G. Frankfurt, is a renowned moral philosopher and Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at Princeton University. Several copies of this very small, pocket-sized tome, are available for check-out now in the Library. So pick up your copy and plan to attend this book discussion on Tuesday, February 28th, at 3:00 p.m. in the Library, RT 503. Light refreshments will be served. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

    "A gem of psychological insight, social commentary, philosophical analysis, and good humor. This is the work of an extraordinarily acute, attentive, and versatile philosopher who has succeeded in addressing an audience comprised of both other philosophers and the general public on a topic of considerable human interest in a characteristically wry and engaging way. It is one of the most enjoyable and humanly illuminating short pieces of philosophy produced in the past fifty years."--Raymond Geuss, University of Cambridge

    "The most audacious of the ancient alchemists desired to transmute lead into gold. They never succeeded. Who would have known that they should have started not with a base metal, but with bullshit? Harry Frankfurt offers a philosophical analysis of bullshit that is golden. The prose by turns employs irony, broad humor, and tongue-in-cheek high seriousness while at the same time manages to have a rigorous logical coherence that is always impressive. One leaves the essay not merely thinking it was a delight. One leaves it realizing that one has engaged the accomplishment of a great analyst and thinker."--William Chester Jordan, Professor of History, Princeton University

    Library open until 6:00 p.m. Fridays!

    For spring semester 2006, when classes are in session, the University Library will be open until 6:00 p.m. on Fridays. Increasingly the library staff have noticed that many more students are using the Library late on Friday afternoons. Also, we have students and faculty who need to make the Library their last stop of the day before the weekend, and frequently arrive just as we are locking up. So, we are offering this extended hour on Fridays as a pilot program to determine whether or not it is beneficial to the University community.

    OhioLINK offers additional renewals

    Students, faculty and staff at Cleveland State University and across Ohio can now keep the books they borrow from other OhioLINK libraries for up to 15 weeks, as long as another user has not requested the materials.

    "Users statewide have been asking to keep OhioLINK books longer than six weeks," Tony Maniaci, chair of OhioLINK's Inter-Campus Services Committee, which sets OhioLINK borrowing policies, said. "But OhioLINK has to carefully balance the needs of researchers who wish to keep an item for an extended period of time with those who have short timeframes to meet a deadline or complete a class assignment. Recent improvements to the software used for online borrowing checks for holds before allowing a renewal. This new functionality allows us to extend the maximum borrowing period for items and better meet the needs of all OhioLINK users."

    OhioLINK books may be checked out for three weeks and renewed up to four times, as long as another user has not placed a hold on the item, for a total maximum borrowing period of 15 weeks. Users can request and renew OhioLINK books and local library materials online via the library's Web site at www.ulib.csuohio.edu

    **This does not apply to media materials. This type of material will continue to check out for 7 days with no renewals.
