SHAFFER COLLECTION NOW LIVE|
In March of 2002, the Government Information Resources (GIR) Department finalized an agreement with Mr. Melvin Shaffer, a former United States Army photographer who served with the Museum and Medical Arts Service during the Second World War, to take possession of approximately 340 personal photographs depicting the local conditions of North Africa, Italy, Southern France, and Germany from the years 1943 to 1945. Upon accession, these photographs -- negatives, prints, and digitized images created by the photographer himself from these original source materials -- became a component of CUL's pilot digital library project, "Historic Government Publications from the Second World War (1939 - 1945)". The entire collection, annotated by Mr. Shaffer himself, has now been made accessible via the World Wide Web at:
Reproductions from the collection are available by request for a nominal fee.
BYWATERS COLLECTION UPDATE|
PROJECT CLEAN SWEEP IS COMING TO SMU LIBRARIES!|
Over Fall Break (Monday, October 14, and Tuesday, October 15), plan to join your CUL colleagues as we clean out Fondren Library Center, Hamon, DeGolyer, and CMIT Libraries. Our goal is to identify and clear out all broken, obsolete, and just plain ugly equipment, furniture, and supplies - and have fun while we are doing it!
Staff should concentrate on identifying items for discard ("items", NOT coworkers or supervisors!), which will be carried away by SMU movers. TIDY janitorial staff will be on hand to do heavy cleaning as storage/work areas are cleared.
For Fondren Library Center, this cleaning and clearing effort will be the initial kickoff to a space study that will lead to a full building renovation
Dress will be "Clean Chic" - grubby jeans, comfortable (and safe) shoes. All participants in Project Clean Sweep will receive a complimentary CUL polo shirt and a free lunch. Non-participants will have the opportunity to purchase a shirt.
Since we will be open both these two days to provide basic services, staff covering service desks while others clean and clear will be eligible for polo shirts and food.
Monday, October 7--Judy Searles, CUL Friends
Friday, October 18--Gillian McCombs, CUL Director
Sunday, October 20--Bill Dworaczyk, CMIT

EXHIBITS & PROGRAMS
HAWN GALLERY EXHIBITION
Peter Ligon: The New York Drypoints, August 19 through December 15, 2002, Mildred Hawn Gallery, Hamon Arts Library
The Pollock Gallery, Division of Art, in conjunction with the Mildred Hawn Gallery, Hamon Arts Library presents over twenty drypoint etchings by Southern Methodist University alumnus Peter Ligon. The show brings together, for the first time, works the artist has executed during regular yearly sojourns to New York City over the last eight years. The drypoint process has allowed Ligon to intimately record on copper plates his personal and keenly felt observations of both the built and natural landscape of New York City. The exhibition is curated by Shannon Phillips, Assistant to the Director at the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art (Ms. Phillips served as the Pollock Curatorial Intern for 2001-2002) and Philip Van Keuren, Director of the Pollock Gallery and Assistant Professor of Art and Curatorial Studies, Division of Art, Meadows School of the Arts.
The Mildred Hawn Gallery, located inside the Hamon Arts Library, is open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm. For more information, please contact Sam Ratcliffe (x82303).
