Tusculum College librarians to attend Undergraduate Research Behavior Workshop

Posted on 04 August 2011 by srichey@tusculum.edu

Tusculum College’s Anne Osborne, assistant library director for distance learning, and Kathy Hipps, information literacy librarian, have been invited to participate in the Undergraduate Research Behavior workshop sponsored by the Council on Library and Information Resources and The Council of Independent Colleges.

The workshop will be led by Nancy Fried Foster, lead anthropologist for the River Campus Libraries at the University of Rochester and co-manager of the Libraries’ Digital Initiatives Unit. Foster possesses a Ph.D. in applied anthropology from Columbia University and a diploma from Oxford University in social anthropology. She conducts research on faculty, staff and students, documenting work habits and identifying needs for web-based products to support research and writing.

The workshop will take place September 13-14 at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. Due to the generosity of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, there are no registration or program fees for workshop participants and all travel and lodging costs will also be covered.

Osborne and Hipps were awarded the invitation after successful completion and review of their program application. Osborne has a Master of Arts in library and information science from the University of Iowa and has been with Tusculum College since 2002.  Hipps has a Master of Science in information science from the University of Tennessee and has been with the Garland Library since October 2002.

“The entire library staff is very excited for and proud of these two dedicated professionals,” said Library Director Jack Smith. “This is a huge opportunity that will benefit not only Ms. Osborne and Ms. Hipps, but also all of the students the library serves.”

Library Director Jack Smith to present at annual Abraham Lincoln Colloquium

Posted on 11 April 2011 by srichey@tusculum.edu

Myron J. “Jack” Smith, Jr., professor of library science and history and director of the Thomas J. Garland Library, will be one of six presenters when the Association of Lincoln Presenters comes to Greeneville, April 14-17, for their annual Lincoln Colloquium, held this year at the General Morgan Inn.

Smith will present an illustrated talk on the history of the McCormick Hall bell. According to a story by Dr. Landon C. “Daddy” Haynes in the 1942 college yearbook, the bell now housed in the tower came to Tusculum in 1890 as payment in kind for student tuitions. Over the years, the bell has been rung to call the community to various events, to note the achievement of significant milestones or just to hear its rich sounds. Smith will profile the exciting history behind the 400-pound brass bell.

At Tusculum since 1990, Professor Smith is the author of more than 80 books, including six on the Civil War. He authored the bicentennial college history Glimpses of Tusculum with Professor Emeritus Donal Sexton in 1994. Several of his latest titles are available for purchase at the College bookstore.
