Celebrate Occupational Therapy Month!

OT display in LibraryOccupational Therapy (OT) is an allied health profession focused on improving a person's ability to participate in the everyday activities of living at home, at school, at work, or at play. Birth defects, injuries, illnesses, diseases, and the effects of aging can cause people of all ages to have difficulty performing everyday activities like personal self-care, playing, homemaking, and working. Occupational Therapists offer creative solutions to help these adults and children so they can participate more fully in the daily activities that are meaningful to them. OT assists people in developing the "skills for the job of living" necessary for independent and satisfying lives.

    Changes to OhioLINK Databases

    In July and August, the CSU libraries will experience a significant realignment of research databases provided by OhioLINK. We will be losing access to several databases, but simultaneously gaining access to a sizable list of titles we did not previously have. For some of those titles lost, new titles from a different vendor are available and will be provided. For others, there is no specific substitute. In the case of a few discontinued databases, we will retain access to the previous years' files, to which we had subscribed. Most of the cancellations will take effect on August 1, 2006. The libraries will make every effort to provide a smooth transition for students, faculty and staff.

    For more details, call the University Library Reference Center at (216) 687-5300, or check the complete list of database changes.

    Changes to some OhioLINK databases

    Many OhioLINK library databases have changed their search interface from Dataware to the new OSearch. While the basic functionality of OSearch remains the same, improvements have been made, the most noticeable of which is a dramatically simplified default view. On the Library's homepage, the terminology has been simplified by changing the category "Indexes and Abstract" to the broader "Research Databases."

This book dispels that myth with a visual record of the transformation of Cleveland's skyline with the renovation of Tower City Center and Playhouse Square, the construction of the BP building, Key Center, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Gateway and new football stadium. The first decade of this century has seen the growth of Cleveland State University, the beautification of Euclid Avenue, the expansion of the Cleveland Clinic, the Cleveland Institute of Music, the Cleveland Museum of Art, The Cleveland Institute of Art, University Hospital and the Case Western Reserve Campus."

    Cleveland Inside Outside is a journey full of visual surprises with stunning photographs from 1981-2011. As a commercial architectural photographer, Jennie Jones was privileged to have worked on most of the major building sites in Cleveland. With her art history and fine art background, she was able to capture the beauty, strength and complexity of large construction sites. During her travels in and around the city of Cleveland she captured many other images that speak to the beauty of our great city.

    It is a beautiful coffee table book that truly celebrates the best of Cleveland.

    Cleveland Memory Pays Tribute to Bob Feller (1918-2010)

    Bob Feller

    by Vern Morrison, Digital Production Assistant , Michael Schwartz Library

    If you ask any knowledgeable baseball fan to name the greatest player in Cleveland Indians history, you will always get the same response: Bob Feller. And rightly so.

    Born in Van Meter, Iowa, Bob Feller made his major league debut on July 19, 1936 at the age of 17. His first starting assignment came on August 23 at League Park, against the St. Louis Browns. Feller went nine innings that day and struck out 15, as the Indians won 4-1. Later that same season, Feller went on to strike out 17 batters, thus becoming the first major league pitcher to strike out as many hitters in a game as his age. In 1938, Feller struck out 18 hitters in a game against the Detroit Tigers, setting the major league record for strikeouts in a nine-inning game. This record would not be surpassed until 31 years later.

    Feller led the American League in pitching victories and strikeouts from1939 through 1941. In December of 1941, days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Feller enlisted in the U. S. Navy and volunteered for combat service. He served as gun captain aboard the USS Alabama until the end of World War II in 1945 and was decorated with five campaign ribbons and eight battle stars. Upon his discharge from the Navy, Feller went back to pitch for the Indians for the remainder of the 1945 season. In 1946, his first full season back in baseball, he again led the American League with 26 victories and a phenomenal 348 strikeouts.

    Feller went on to pitch for the Indians through the 1956 season. He finished with career totals of 266 wins and 162 losses, and 2,581 strikeouts. He pitched three no-hitters, including one against the Chicago White Sox on Opening Day, 1940, and 12 one-hit games. He was selected as an All-Star eight times, and was the winning pitcher for the American League in the 1941 and 1946 games. In 1962, during his first year of eligibility, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    Upon his retirement as a player, Feller kept living in the Greater Cleveland area, and worked in private industry as an insurance salesman and as a public relations specialist. He remained close to the Indians organization for the rest of his life, serving the club as a spring training pitching coach and a public relations spokesman. He would often don the Indians uniform for old-timers games and other events, and was fond of demonstrating his pitching ability for many years after his last big-league game. In June of 2009, at the age of 90, Feller pitched in the Baseball Hall of Fame Classic, an exhibition game at Cooperstown, New York.

    During the last few months of his life, Feller suffered from various illnesses. He died of complications from leukemia on December 15, 2010, at the age of 92.

    Bob Feller is immortalized in the form of a statue outside the gates of Progressive Field. More important, he left behind a permanent legacy as a pitcher, as a naval hero, and as an ambassador for baseball and for the Cleveland Indians. He will be remembered as long as the game of baseball is played.

    As part of the archives of the Cleveland Press, the Cleveland Memory Project is proud to be able to present a collection of photographs of Bob Feller, featuring him throughout his life: as a child, as a member of the Indians, as a naval officer, and as a businessman. View these photographs.

    Herb Score in the control booth

    Herb Score pitched for the Cleveland Indians from 1955 to 1959, twice making the American League All-Star team and leading the league in strikeouts.

    After his playing days were over, Score was a member of the Indians broadcasting team from 1964 until his retirement in 1997. Herb Score will be remembered, and fondly, as long as there are baseball fans in Cleveland.

    Cleveland Memory Rewind: 1982 - The Cleveland Press Calls It Quits

    Last issue of the Press
    Front page of last issue of Cleveland Press, 1982

    Thirty years ago on June 17, 1982 The Cleveland Press, Cleveland's only surviving afternoon daily newspaper, stopped its presses for good. Founded by Edward W. Scripps as the Penny Press in 1878, it started out as a small, 4-page afternoon daily, and under the editorial leadership of Louis B. Seltzer, who helmed The Press from 1928 to 1966, it became one of the country's most influential newspapers.

    During the second half of the 1960s, The Press' readership began to decline, a fate shared by other large afternoon dailies, and it lost its lead to the Plain Dealer in 1968. In 1980 Cleveland businessman Joseph Cole bought the paper from Scripps-Howard and tried to breathe new life into it, but the sharp economic recession in the Cleveland area was too much to overcome. On June 17, 1982, Cole announced the closing of The Cleveland Press and, with the appearance of the final edition later that afternoon, Cleveland became a one newspaper town.

    Though The Cleveland Press plant at East 9th and Lakeside was torn down in 1983 to make way for the North Point Building, The Press' editorial library or "morgue" found a new home in 1984 when Joseph E. Cole donated it to the Michael Schwartz Library at Cleveland State University. The approximately half a million 8x10 black and white photographs and one million news clippings that comprise "The Cleveland Press Collection" can be found in the library's Special Collections. More than 8,000 photos and documents from the collection are also available online via The Cleveland Memory Project.

    Cleveland Memory Rewind: A Casino in Cleveland is Old News...

    Performers at the Mayfair Casino
    Performers at the Mayfair Casino. View image.

    With the opening of the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland at 100 Public Square on May 14th, it is interesting to note that another downtown casino once had high hopes of cashing it big with Clevelanders and other area high-rollers. The Mayfair Casino, under the "personal direction of George Pomerantz" opened in 1935 in the Ohio Theatre. The Ohio Theatre was redecorated in an Art Deco style, and billed as "Cleveland's Million Dollar Theatre Restaurant", it boasted a main dining room, a "Sky Bar" and the "largest and most beautiful Cocktail Lounge in America."

    Basically a supper club, the Mayfair Casino drew some of the largest musical acts in the country, and though "the owners hoped to turn the establishment into an actual casino," it closed the next year in 1936 due to the fact that gambling was not allowed in Ohio.1 The Ohio Theatre then reopened in 1943 with its original decor as part of the Loew's movie chain.

    See photos of the Mayfair Casino in Cleveland Memory.

    Cleveland Memory's "Crime Scene, Cleveland" Offers a Glimpse at Some of Cleveland's More Sensationalized Murders

    Inspecting remains of torso murder victim
    Inspecting remains of torso murder victim.

    Perhaps it is not one of the most pleasant topics, but recent events have put murder in Cleveland into the news. Those interested in learning more about two of Cleveland's more sensationalized murders, the Torso Murders and the Sheppard Murder Case, can find photos and information about them in Cleveland Memory's "Crime Scene, Cleveland".

    The perpetrator of the Kingsbury Run "Torso Murders" took the lives of 12 victims between September 1935 and August 1938 and was never found, but the murders stopped after Cleveland Safety Director, Eliot Ness, and 63 men burned down the Kingsbury Run shantytowns. A film about these murders and Eliot Ness' involvement in the investigation is to be the subject of a film, "Ness", which is currently in development and is to be directed by William Fincher who covered similar subject matter in his films "Se7ven" and "Zodiac".

    The murder of Marilyn Sheppard on July 4, 1954 and the subsequent trials of her husband, Samuel Sheppard, for the murder sparked a media frenzy at the time and later inspired a television series, The Fugitive, and a feature film of the same name.

    Find out more about these sad and gruesome chapters of Cleveland's history in Crime Scene, Cleveland.

    Cleveland

    At 40 years of age, Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. abandoned the traditional American Dream to follow his own. Unsatisfied with his comfortable, middle-class life, Amos traded in his computer for a printing press and his white collar for a pair of overalls. Armed with life, liberty, peanuts, and a meager yearly income of $7,000, Amos cranked out a new, mutinous declaration of independence. Proceed and Be Bold! joins Amos for a titillating retelling of his story, while examining the pretensions and provisions of the art world. The work of this self-proclaimed "Humble Negro Printer" raises emotionally-charged questions and reveals remarkable depth beneath the bold print. By learning the rules and then choosing to break them, Amos redefines what life (and letterpress printing) can be: exhilarating and subversive. His provocative sense of humor seeps out of every word he speaks and his radical philosophies on the American consciousness (or unconsciousness) will awaken any listless bystander. After experiencing Amos' humble journey, you'll never look at middle class life the same way again.

    Cleveland Public Library has partnered with three Cleveland City Councilmen to launch Real Men Read, an initiative to reinforce that leaders are readers. The first stage of the initiative features Councilmen Eugene Miller, TJ Dow and Kevin Conwell as they present "Three Men and a Book," a book discussion by men, for men on their lunch hour. The first session tackles the topic of leadership, Thursday, March 31, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m., and will take place in the Louis Stoke Wing Auditorium, Easth Sixth and Superior.

    Leadership is the first of three distinct sessions to engage men in their professional and personal lives--3 sessions, 3 topics. Instead of using one book to provide the framework for the session, each councilman will bring their favorite books on the topic, and they encourage men to do the same to help drive the discussion.

    Free boxed lunches will be provided to anyone who registers in advance at www.cpl.org, email programs@cpl.org, or call 216.623.2921.

    Complete schedule for Three Men and a Book:
    Session I: Leadership -- March 31
    Session II: Networking -- June 23
    Session III: Relationships -- September 9

    Common Reading Experience

    Anthony Adkisson, Instructor
    Introduction to University Life, CSU

    First-year students enrolled in ASC 101: Introduction to University Life will share the common experience of reading No Impact Man by Colin Beavan.

    The goal of this common reading program is to create a shared learning experience that fosters student engagement, retention, and personal development beyond the classroom. In pursuing this initiative, CSU joins college campuses throughout the country that make this part of the freshman year experience. Although directed primarily at freshmen, the Common Reading Experience committee hopes to engage the entire campus in this reading experience through promoting the book in other courses and sponsoring campus-wide activities to highlight the reading and its intersection with different disciplines and issues.

    In this year's book, No Impact Man,Colin Beavan swore off plastic and toxins, turned off his electricity, went organic, became a bicycle nut, and tried to save the planet from environmental catastrophe while dragging his young daughter and his Prada-wearing wife along for the ride. This is the sensational, funny, and consciousness-raising story of how they did it.

    CSU faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend the "Viewing & Discussion: No Impact Man Documentary" on March 9 at noon in RT 325 and three other Common Reading Experience Events this spring:

    Common Reading Experience Presentation: The Science Behind the Beginning of the Nuclear Age

    Book Cover for Copenhagen
    Cleveland State University continues its Common Reading Experience on Tuesday, October 27 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the Library's first floor. Petur Fodor, Professor, Physics Department, as part of the Speaker Series will make a special presentation titled "The Science behind the Beginning of the Nuclear Age" based on the book chosen for this year's program - Michael Frayn's Copenhagen, which all first year CSU students will read as part of their orientation to University life.

    Copenhagen, selected by a committee representing faculty, staff, students, and the Library is a Tony Award-winning play that soars at the intersection of science and art. It is an explosive re-imagining of the mysterious wartime meeting between two Nobel laureates to discuss the atomic bomb.

    Michael Frayn shows us that these men were passionate, philosophical, and all too human, even though one of the three historical figures in his drama, Werner Heisenberg, was the head of the Nazis' effort to develop a nuclear weapon. The play's other two characters, the Danish physicist Niels Bohr and his wife, Margrethe, are involved with Heisenberg in an after-death analysis of an actual meeting that has long puzzled historians.

    All CSU faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend all Common Reading Experience Events.

    Copenhagen, selected by a committee representing faculty, staff, students, and the Library is a Tony Award-winning play that soars at the intersection of science and art. It is an explosive re-imagining of the mysterious wartime meeting between two Nobel laureates to discuss the atomic bomb.

    Michael Frayn shows us that these men were passionate, philosophical, and all too human, even though one of the three historical figures in his drama, Werner Heisenberg, was the head of the Nazis' effort to develop a nuclear weapon. The play's other two characters, the Danish physicist Niels Bohr and his wife, Margrethe, are involved with Heisenberg in an after-death analysis of an actual meeting that has long puzzled historians.

    CSU faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend all Common Reading Experience Events.

    Copyright Basics: What you need to know to use copyrighted materials in your classes

    Copyright Basics: What you need to know to use copyrighted materials in your classes

    The Center for Teaching Excellence, in partnership with the Michael Schwartz Library, presents the first in a series of Copyright workshops for faculty on Tuesday, October 22 at noon in Main Classroom, room 103.

    This workshop explores copyright from the standpoint of the consumer of information (in particular, educators)and how copyrighted information can be used in the classroom. Participants will learn what copyright is, it's purpose, the exclusive rights of the copyright holder and the limitation on those rights that allow use of protected materials. Participants will learn about the Fair Use Doctrine, how to determine if a use is fair use, and will be updated on recent legal cases involving use of copyrighted materials.

    Register for this or future sessions by contacting cte@csuohio.edu.

    November 5, 2013
    Copyright and Multimedia Materials for the Classroom
    noon - 1:00 pm
    MC 103

    This workshop will quickly review the purpose of the Copyright Law and then explore in more depth how that law provides for the use of multimedia materials such as images, films, music, etc., both in the face-to-face classroom and online instruction. The principle of "transformativeness" and how it applies to using copyrighted materials will be explored.

    November 21, 2013
    Copyright and Your Online Courses
    noon - 1:00 pm
    MC 101
    In this workshop you will learn that the use of copyrighted materials differs depending upon how a course is delivered and why. The Copyright Law of 1976 allows a broader use of materials in face-to-face instruction than what is allowed in online courses. Learn how the Fair Use exemption may be more advantageous and allows greater use of copyrighted materials than the TEACH Act, which was specifically designed for distance education applications. Come and learn what approach Cleveland State University supports in regard to the use of copyrighted materials in online classes.


    February 20, 2014
    MC 103

    Do You Own Your Intellectual Property? Author Rights, Creative Commons and Open Access Publishing
    noon - 1:00 pm
    Have you, as an author, ever signed over your intellectual property rights (copyright) to a publisher? Do you have to do that in order to get published in a prestigious journal? Come to this noon workshop to learn about Author Rights, Creative Commons Licenses, the Open Access movement, and CSU's Institutional Repository, EngagedScholarship@CSU. You have option that could benefit you and CSU! Register for this session by contacting cte@csuohio.edu.
