UK Libraries, Keeneland Take on Historic Project for Racing Industry
During Keeneland's spring meet this year, the University of
Kentucky Libraries Preservation Department and Keeneland
embarked on a unique partnership that will guarantee the
horse racing industry and its legions of fans access to the archives of the Daily Racing Form (DRF), the touchstone publication of the Thoroughbred industry. The two-year "test
bed" project will preserve a sample of the DRF archive and
will develop a plan to ensure the public access to the entire
DRF archive currently housed at the Keeneland Library.
Keeneland is the exclusive home to the Daily Racing Form
collection as well as the archive of its predecessor, The
Morning Telegraph. Approximately 10 million newspaper
pages in 3,700 folio hardbound volumes are stored in a climate-controlled storage facility in the Keeneland Library.
Currently, the volumes are virtually unusable.
A two-year “test bed” project employing a hybrid approach to produce digital and microfilm versions
of the DRF began this spring. The partnership between UK Libraries and Keeneland will produce a
keyword-searchable digital archive of the DRF to facilitate in depth research into past performances of
the equine athletes and will also create 35mm silver halide, polyester, “preservation” microfilm as a
security copy. During the test bed, the selected sample will focus on Triple Crown coverage from the
111-year old archive.
The project, known as Partnering to Preserve Racing’s Rich History, will generate several products for
the Keeneland Library:
•
•
•

a keyword-searchable digital image archive of approximately 100,000 pages that
meets the highest standards for preservation and access and that is accessible via the
Kentuckiana Digital Library and the Keeneland Library Web site;
long term storage and maintenance for the digital archive in a digital repository at UK
Libraries; and,
conservation treatment proposals for damaged DRF volumes and rehousing in archival enclosures for the fragile volumes.

The Preservation Reformatting Center (PRC) has a long history as a leader in the preservation of historic newspapers. The PRC, along with the Libraries’ Digital Programs, participates as one of six projects in the NEH-funded National Digital Newspaper Program, 20-year initiative to create digital archives from preservation microfilm of historic newspapers.
Partnering to Preserve Racing’s Rich History will establish a significant historical resource for scholars, Thoroughbred breeders, owners, trainers and racing fans alike. The project also will establish a
model upon which Keeneland can build its research collections and further its mission as the foremost
research facility for the Thoroughbred industry in the world.

* Spot Bonus Award Winner
Brian Helm, who is a programmer for the Libraries IT division, is a recent
recipient of a Spot Bonus Award.
After waiting three years to transform the Notable Kentucky African
Americans web page into a database, Brian has made it happen in about
three months. The database is up and running, and on numerous occasions,
Brian has willingly taken away from his busy schedule to make
enhancements and alterations. Search engines such as Yahoo and Google
are already indexing the subject searches and the source index titles. Thanks
to Brian’s expertise, the continued promotion of the University of Kentucky
Libraries’ services to the newest patron group, the Notable Kentucky
African Americans database users, has just taken a major leap forward.
Brian has also made incredible advances to our website. He has designed and implemented a much more robust
content manager editor and designed a number of enhancements that have helped the web administrators make
quick and easy additions and modifications via the WYSIWYG interface rather than the more cumbersome
MySQL tables. What has been particularly impressive is how rapidly he responds to each request for
modifications, showing both an impressive skill set and an easy-going, accommodating demeanor.
Congratulations on a job well done!

What’s Happening in the King Building??? 1st and 3rd Floors…
The answer to this is LOTS! Two BIG summer projects are ongoing in King Addition this summer. The first BIG project is
clearing a large portion of the Storage stacks area on the 1st
floor in order to create workspace for the Partnering to Preserve
Racing’s Rich History Project. Lesser used journals that were
previously housed in this area of King are being inventoried,
packed, and sent to the library’s remote storage location at Kentucky Underground Storage (KUSI) in Wilmore, KY.
The second BIG project includes transferFormer journal stacks area on 1st
ring all the books, journals, and select mifloor.
croforms from the former IDRC
(International Documents and Research
Collections) location on the 3rd floor of King Addition to a variety of other library
locations. The majority of the print collections are being transferred to the 5th floor
of Young Library. The complete United Nations and European Union print documents collections will soon reside in Young adjacent to the US Government Publications stacks area. Accompanying these will be the British Parliamentary Debates
and the Irish University Press collection. Lesser used print and microprint sets are
being inventoried, packed, and sent to KUSI.

If any of this sounds a bit confusing, you need not worry. -- Thanks to the joint efforts of Special Projects, Storage, and Database Integrity staff and students, the new locations of all of these materials will
display correctly in the corresponding Infokat online catalog records!

WOW!!!
UK Libraries’ Staff Recognized in New Book
With the publication of Brent Shannon’s new book The Cut of His Coat: Men, Dress, and
Consumer Culture in Britain, 1860-1914, several staff members in Young Library from
various departments were acknowledged. In the author’s own words:
“Shawn Livingston and Bonnie Jean Cox of the University of Kentucky’s W.T. Young Library for
their assistance and willingness to purchase a microfilm of the entire run of Fashion, which was vital
to my project.”
“Janet Layman, Carolyn Tassie, and the entire Interlibrary Loan staffs at both the University of Kentucky and Transylvania University for filling my seemingly never ending requests and hunting down
innumerable hard-to-find materials.”
This serves as another great example of teamwork and interdepartmental support for the patron. In this
case, also inter-university support. Great job everyone!

Comings and Goings

Just like the name indicates, we here at OTS thought it would be fun to let
you share your pet with your co-workers. Everyone was encouraged to
participate in the pet show-and-tell. The following are some of your fellow librarian’s best friends. Enjoy!

Deirdre Scaggs ~
Ambrose, named after Ambrose Bierce, is 13
years old and has lived in Kentucky, Ohio, and
Pennsylvania. He likes short walks, long naps,
and having his belly rubbed.

Rob and Stephanie Aken ~
Oberon enjoying the scenery.

Dean Diedrichs ~
His name is Winston, he’s 18 years old,
totally deaf these days but otherwise
very healthy and happy. He’s pictured
here with our grandchild, Evan.

Leslie Jackson ~
My dog’s name is Casey. She’s a Basenji mix; I once
read that one of the characteristics of this semidomesticated breed was that they are “moderately obedient clowns.” That just about sums up her personality, plus the fact that she’s extremely loyal and makes
a great guard dog. I got her from the Lex. Humane Society in 2000; she’s almost seven, we think. Her favorite snack? She will eat anything. Literally. She once
chewed up and swallowed a dime…she threw it up
later, tooth marks and all. Hobbies: She’s never met a
paper product (paper towel, Kleenex, toilet paper, etc.)
that she didn’t like; she’s constantly throwing herself
little “paper parties” around the house.

Jill Buckland ~
We have a lovely dog called Jewel - no we didn't name
her, we inherited the name she came with as a puppy.
She's lab/retrieverish, and has the most sociable nature.
Nowadays she cannot scale a 6ft fence when she hears
children or other dogs going past, as she used to. My
grandchildren persuade their parents to bring them
down to see us (really, her) as often as they can. She
really tries to talk to us with doggy noises until we work
out what she's saying. She mopes when she sees suitcases in the hall as she knows some of us are going
away. She eats everything we leave except salads, and
scoffs chicken carcasses within minutes. She also loves,
and consumes shoes, but never touches one unless we
give it to her formally.

"Whoever said you can't buy happiness
forgot about puppies."
-- Gene Hill

Sharon Ross ~
Morgan (salt and pepper) and Madison
(black and silver) are 10 month old AKC
registered Miniature Schnauzers. While we
are “working like dogs,” they are lounging
around the pool.

Dennis Davenport ~
“Tink” (aka Tinkerbell) is a Toy Yorkie. She
was born September 16, 1999 on my wedding anniversary. My wife actually delivered her. Both her parents are gone now.
Her Dad’s name was Sundance and Mother
was Cat Ballu. Tink gives our cats a run for
their money. She is also very possessive of
her house. Yes, I said her house...We just
live there.

Mary Molinaro~
Louie, my standard
schnauzer, on his
first birthday (he is
now 2). He is a
sweet obedient dog
that particularly
likes cats and cows!

* Tech Talk
By Tari Keller, Systems Librarian

Many of you have heard me say "I need specific examples" or "Send me a screen shot of that
error message" or "Send me some screen shots of the weird Voyager happening." This Tech
Talk is an explanation of why I ask so often and how you can capture those screens and error
messages easily.
Before I call Ex Libris to report a problem with Voyager, I must first determine if the problem
is with the way we set up our Voyager system, or with our records, or with the workflow that
was followed. To figure out if any of those are the culprits, I need to try to do whatever you
were doing when the weirdness occurred. Since I don't work in everyone's department every
day, I need your help.

Types of Details Needed:
Bibliographic Record IDs
MFHD IDs
Item IDs
Item Barcode numbers
Patron Barcodes
Patron Names
Purchase Order numbers
Invoice or Voucher numbers
Serial titles
Vendor names
If I know what you were working with when Voyager misbehaved, I can try to do it on my
workstation. If I can make it happen on my workstation, I know the problem is repeatable.
We have a better chance of getting the problem solved if this is the case. I know where to
look in the System Administration client to see if Voyager is behaving according to the rules
in the profile. I can look "under the hood" with Access to find the data, to see if it looks like
the other data of its type. If I can't fix the problem with the information I have, I can send the
information to Ex Libris and let them work with their tools to try to figure it out. The more
details they have to work with the easier it is for them to determine what is happening.

How can you capture the details?
To capture an active window (usually the one with the colorful title bar):
Use the combination of the / buttons to put it on your clipboard.
OR if you have several windows open that are important, like a Voyager client window and
an error message that displays on top, capture your whole desktop.
To capture the whole desktop:
Use the combination of / buttons to put it on your clipboard.
To paste it into a Word document or an email message that is in HTML or Rich Text format:
Place your cursor where you want the captured window or desktop to appear and use the combination of V .
Thank you so much for your help!
