Science Library Update
The first phase of the Science/Engineering Library
Project, the Science Library, is on schedule. In August of
2007, UK Libraries received money to renovate the King
Addition. The renovation project was put on an
aggressive time table. Fall 2007 was spent working with
architect Maureen Peters and the faculty constituency on
the design of the library. The project was put out to bid
over the Christmas break. The successful contractors are
Woodford Builders and they, along with Maureen Peters,
have worked in both King buildings and Little Library.
They are confident that they can keep the aggressive
timeline. The Science Library is slated to open for Fall
Semester of 2008.

Third floor of King Building renovation.

Project construction began in early March with the construction of a room on the first floor to store the
newspapers located in Room 211 and 211A on the second floor. The new room was completed and the
newspapers have been moved. The work has begun on the third floor with the removal of the ceiling and
floor tiles. The floor is now a wide open space and the framing for the walls of the offices, work area and
study rooms is complete.
Serious work will begin soon on the second floor. The south entrance to the King Building will be closed
and the east entrance (facing Maxwell Place) will become the primary entrance to the building. Rooms 209,
211, and 211A will be demolished to make way for a lobby and a combined service desk for both the library
and the student computing lab. The elevator will be removed in May and a new elevator will be in service by
the end of August.
The construction project is only part of the activity surrounding this endeavor. The staff from the three
branch libraries involved in the merger and staff from the CTS division have been working diligently on
combining their respective collections into the building. The facilities group from Access and Delivery have
been dealing with facilities issues since last summer. These include clearing the third floor, rounding up
shelving and moving the newspaper room. The work continues with items being processed for storage, and
the measuring of collections to work out the best arrangement. A group has been formed to work on the
“Request €or Proposal” necessary to hire library movers for moving the collections; {s with most of our
library projects, many people from many divisions are working together to get the job done.
If the project remains on the current timetable, the collections will be moved
and merged over the summer. Central Kentucky Radio Eye (CKRE) will move
from the third floor of the King Addition to their new quarters in the Northside
Branch of Lexington Public Library late summer or early fall. Once CKRE
moves out, their former space will be renovated and the first phase of the
renovation will be complete. The entire project is scheduled to be completed in
November of 2008. Stay tuned for more developments.

International Flags
You may have noticed the flags hanging from
the 2nd floor balcony surrounding the lobby of
the W.T. Young Library. They are displayed to
honor the many international students and faculty who attend or work at the University of
Kentucky. During March, UK recognized the
important role the international community plays on campus as a part of the campus-wide celebration of
cultural diversity.
You don’t have to work at the †ibrary for too long before you realize that the international students and
faculty are great scholars; They are some of the best and most dedicated users of the library< so it’s fitting
that UK Libraries participate in the celebration. Our own Diversity Committee, working with the Office
of International Affairs, sponsors this colorful display. The 24 flags are meant to be a representative sampling of the 115 countries that have students at the University of Kentucky . The flags that were hanging
were not chosen according to any criteria, although the committee did try to include some of the countries
that have large populations of students here, such as China, India, and Canada. While you might think
that hanging a bunch of flags is a simple process< it really isn’t; There are a number of regulations to be
followed. For example, Federal law prohibits the display of any flags to the right of the flag of the United
States if it is displayed on the same level as other flags; Thank goodness our country’s name begins with
“U” so we can maintain alphabetical order without excluding too many other countries – our apologies to
Vietnam< Yemen< and Zambia; Similarly< Saudi {rabia’s flag could not be displayed at all< since it is not
allowed to be hung vertically.

Black History Month/Hub Display
To commemorate |lack ‚istory ‡onth< U… †ibrary’s ~iversity Committee sponsored a video exhibit in the Hub
titled Views of Diversity. The exhibit featured six video
presentations which were projected simultaneously on the
outside walls of the rotunda in the Hub. Three of the exhibits, which celebrate the history of African-Americans in
Kentucky, were put together by the members of the committee and feature still photographs from various archival
collections. Two presentations, Notable Kentucky African Americans and The African American Presence at
the University of Kentucky: 1949 to the Present contain images from U…’s archive and the …entuckiana
Digital Library. Notable Kentucky African-American features images that relate to articles from the database of the same name, which was created by Reinette Jones. The African-American Presence at the University of Kentucky: 1949 to the Present shows just a few of the many African-Americans who made an impact
at UK as students, faculty, or staff members. The 3rd presentation, A Century of Kentucky African American Photographs, 1880s – 1980s features images from the Kentucky Historical Society. It concentrates
chiefly on two collections, The Ohio River Portrait Project and Community Memories: A Glimpse of African
American Life in Frankfort, Ky. Project, which shows everyday life through the years. A fourth display of
still photographs, From Slavery to Freedom comes from a collection of images put together by the Library
of Congress, which depicts the African-American experience before and after freedom from slavery. Also
included in the display was the award-winning PBS documentary of the Civil Rights Movement, Eyes on
the Prize and a photo display from the UK Office of International Affairs called University of Kentucky
International Student Activities which features photographs of international students at UK. Several of the
displays can still be viewed at www.uky.edu/Libraries/NKAA/photoexib.php.

Librarian’s Conservation Research ‘Goes Green’
Kazuko Hioki, conservation librarian with the UK Libraries, presented
From Japanese Tradition: Is Kura a model for a sustainable preservation
environment? before the Board of the International Institute for
Conservation, which included international representatives from the
Americas, Europe and Asia at the British Museum in London.
‚ioki’s presentation examines the „apanese traditional storage building
form called kura, known for superior performance in maintenance of
British Library Building
stable interior temperatures and relative humidity without utilizing a
dedicated system for heating or cooling; { popular example of a kura is Shōsōin< the 8th century wooden
construction used to store official and historical artifacts connected to mperor Shōmu and mpress
…ōmyō< as well as arts and crafts from the ‚eian period of the [:th century;
In 1992, the Archives of the Imperial Household Agency (AIHA) in Tokyo built their current four-story
storage facility modeled on the traditional kura structure Shōsōin; With no air-conditioning system, the
building’s environment is controlled by natural ventilation< insulation and a wooden interior that allows for
humidity control. The new kura exhibits very stable
temperatures and has been successful preventing mold
infestation, a major concern in the monsoon climate of Japan.
Hioki also discussed the use of traditional Japanese kiri or
paulownia wood boxes, collection care and maintenance
practices. One such practice, known as bakuryo, requires the
annual removal of artifacts from the boxes to “air them out<”
British Museum east Asian conservation lab. this procedure prevents mold and allows for inspection for
other signs of deterioration.
‚ioki’s research on kura< which will be published by an internet publication at University of Texas at
{ustin< is a form of sustainable preservation likely to be popular as the world identifies “green” methods
and approaches for various career fields; “ƒ think more people will soon know more about the sustainable
preservation options< and ƒ hope more people start researching and implementing these ideas<” said the
conservation librarian.
‚ioki’s research will take her to „apan in {pril< where she will visit the {ƒ‚{ and
another archival institution in Tokyo that renovated their storage building using a
low-energy strategy. She hopes the visit will garner her more information about the
subject for her work and research.
‚ioki received her bachelor’s degree in pesticide chemistry from „apan’s …obe
University; She earned her master’s degree in information and library science with
a certificate of advanced study in conservation from the University of Texas at
Austin. Hioki has worked for the Sumitomo Chemical Company, as a scientific
information specialist, and at The New York Public Library and The Library of
Congress. She has lectured at various institutions in Japan and conducted research
at the Imperial House Agency in Tokyo.

Washington Post CEO Give Prichard Lecture
Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of The
Washington Post Company, Donald E. Graham, delivered the 25th
Edward F. Prichard Jr. Lecture on Tuesday, March 25, in the Great
Hall of the Margaret I. King Building. Edward F. Prichard Jr. was a
brilliant Kentucky lawyer with a national reputation, who in his final
years led the movement for educational reform in Kentucky.
Graham spoke about the political bipartisanship that was more
common in the late [94:s into the [95:s than it is today; “Political
combat was tempered<” raham said< “by the common experience of
national leaders in the reat ~epression and World War ƒƒ;” They had studied history and saw that such
catastrophes had occurred repeatedly and they were likely to happen again in the 20th century. He
stated that Washington is different today because government service is not considered prestigious or
worthy of the brightest, like Prichard.
Graham is the second member of his family to present the Prichard Lecture. His mother Katherine
Graham, who also served The Washington Post as a publisher, presented the 15th Prichard Lecture in
1993. Katherine and her husband Phil were close friends of Prichard, and Donald Graham called Prichard
Since its inception in 1977, lectures presented have included nationally and regionally acclaimed
authors, historians and public figures including James McGregor Burns, Michael Dirda, David
Eisenhower, Elizabeth Hardwick, Robert Massie, David McCullough, Marsha Norman and Arthur

year by the U… †ibraries’ Wendell ‚; €ord Public Policy Research }enter;

* Spotlight Series
The Spotlight Series features Adrienne Stevens who will be retiring
from the UK Libraries this spring.

Adrienne Stevens, Staff Support Associate II, Special Collections and Digital Programs
Adrienne will retire from UK on April 25, 2008. Currently, Adrienne splits her time
between support staff duties and the reference desk at SCDP.
Adrienne met and married her husband Jim, forty-seven years ago in Kenitra, Morocco.
They have a son Victor, who lives in New York City. They share their farm in Madison
County, Kentucky with a black Labrador, named Angus and various unnamed bovine.
Jim was a career Navy man, so she moved a lot, 28 times in 30 years. After the Navy,
Jim and Adrienne lived in Saudi Arabia for three years and in Malaysia for 1.5 years. She
is happy to be settled in Kentucky.
{drienne’s parents met< married and ran a farm in ‡orocco; {drienne and her brother lived “in town” with her grandparents
so that they could attend the Catholic elementary school. A farm hand drove them to school with a horse and buggy. Her
grandparents ran a butcher shop and had vegetable and flower stalls at the local market. Her childhood was unusual in that sh e
and her brother spent most of their time roaming the farms, and sharing delicious meals with the farm hands and their familie s.
Her parents moved to town when she was 10 years old. Adrienne and her brother were sent to a boarding school in St. Die,
€rance< near her father’s birth place; While living in €rance< {drienne missed the warm ‡oroccan sun and hospitality; ‚er
family traveled between Morocco and France for three years before resettling in Morocco. She quit school early to help
support her family.
Adrienne received her high school diploma and an Associate Degree from Olympic Junior College in Bremerton, Washington.
She attended the University of Washington< the University of Oklahoma and received a |achelor’s ~egree in |usiness
Management from the University of Kentucky in 1990.
{drienne’s first job was in a €rench mill constantly “feeding” silk threads to empty bobbins on three enormous machines; The
transition to a secretarial position at the Banque Populaire in Kenitra, Morocco was most welcomed. Marriage and moving to
the United States brought on new jobs from a clerk for a fuel oil company in Oceana, Virginia, as a Library Technician and
Specialist at the University of Washington in Seattle, and as a Contracts and Travel Clerk Examiner for the U.S. military in
Dhahran, Saudi Arabia (where women are not supposed to work). For three years, she worked in the Human Resources
Department for E-System/Raytheon in Avon, Ky., and finally to her present job with UK Libraries.
She suspects that this will be her last paying position. She has enjoyed every job, except for the factory work. Her favorite jobs
have been with libraries, whether working at the circulation desk, cataloging, reference or working with serials. They were all
challenging and she enjoyed every minute!
Adrienne loves to garden and her four acre farm allows her to play and plant as much as she wants. She has planted nearly 125
trees and has a vegetable garden every year. The fruits of her hard work are shared with the raccoons, squirrels and deer on the
farm. She also enjoys the cacophony of sounds from yearly visits by purple martins that nest at the farm.
‚er favorite hobby is knitting and she is currently working on a project for the “Warm Up {merica” program and for ‚abitat
for Humanity. She loves to read and watch old movies. After retirement, she plans to travel throughout the United States and
She says that all in all she has had a great life and will miss her UK co-workers and friends after retirement.
