  STATE LIBRARY TOUR - About 20 people were present for the LSO "field
I trips" to the State Library in Frankfort. For those of you who haven't
seen the new building it is something for the state to be proud of.
During the tour we were shown demonstrations of preservation techniques,
the microfilm center, the LBPH (Kentucky Regional Library for the Blind
and Physically Handicapped) program and other programs special to a
I state library. In addition to the departments we toured, the
architecture of the building and its art works were well worth the trip. .
Maybe next year we'll set our sights higher and go to the Library of
_ Congresslll

Our feature interviews this issue spotlight some of the folks who
work in the Reference Department of M.l. King Library. Since this
department has so many new members, I though this would be a good chance
for us to get to know them.
KARMEN CROWTHER is the Head of the Reference Department at M.I.
King Library. She came to Kentucky in July of l982 from the University
of Tennessee where she was first the Social Sciences Reference Librarian
and later the Coordinator of Computer Search Services.

master's degree in history from the University of Hawaii, began doctoral
study at the University for two years before giving in to the urge to
_ travel, Karmen scraped her money together and spent two years traveling
in Japan, Siberia and other exotic places. (When the travel bug bites,
‘ it bites HARD!) On that trip she met her husband Michael in Tashkent in
Southern Russia (across the border from Afghanistan).
Karmen worked for a year in Germany before returning to the States.
She then got her library degree from Emory and began working at UT.
Michael is a plant facilities engineer for a magnet company near
_· Knoxville. (One of Karmen's hobbies is travelling, but I don't think
I she meant travelling between Knoxville and Lexingtonlll) The next big
trip they are planning is to England with excursions to other parts of
Europe. They are saving their pennies and hoping to make the journey
next year.

Rob's interests include music, films and 18th century poets. the CAi
project that he and Laura Olson are doing will be used to supplement

"hands on" experience. (The PRIME computer does not have graphics
