Five-State Documents Conference Proceedings

Five-State Documents Conference Proceedings
August 5-6, 2004
New Mexico State Library
Santa Fe, New Mexico

Depository Basics: how and why we do what we do
(PowerPoint file)
Speakers: Tim Byrne, University of Colorado (Boulder); Janet Fisher, Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records (Phoenix)

This session will enable new document librarians to become familiar with the depository laws and guides, and give the seasoned librarian a review of the source materials and changes within the sources. The presenters will also try to debunk some of the erroneous myths that have grown with the depository program.

Colorado Digitization Project – Western Trails Grant – Fall River Road
Speaker: Mark Anderson, University of Northern Colorado

“Rocky Roads for the Modern Tourist" - The area between Grand Lakes and Estes Park Colorado had been a popular tourist attraction for generations by the time Rocky Mountain National Park was established in 1915. The first infrastructure improvement project envisioned by the new Park Administration was to build a road over Fall River Pass, which would make the attractions of the Park's interior accessible by automobile. In 2003, the University of Northern Colorado received a grant from the Colorado Digitization Project to create and mount on a web site a digitized collection that would tell the story of Fall River Road in photographs, maps, government documents and other public domain material. In this presentation, which will be illustrated with historical black and white photos, the presenter will talk about how the creation and maintenance of Fall River Road has challenged available technology throughout its history and about some of the tourist attractions that the road made accessible. He will also discuss some of the technical problems involved in digitization projects of this type and potential evolution of the project.

The Gumshoe Documents Librarian: Investigating the Environment & Politics
(Word file) (PowerPoint file)
Speaker: Leanne Walther, University of Colorado (Boulder)

An investigative approach to environmental research, the program involves “telling a story” by weaving together environmental, business and political online resources.

Charles J. Kappler and Charles C. Royce: Indian Treaties and Land Cessions in the United States, with particular focus on the Southwest
(Word file)
Speaker: Charles D. Bernholz, University of Nebraska, Lincoln

Charles J. Kappler’s Indians Affairs: Laws and Treaties collected together almost all of the recognized federal treaties signed with the Indian Nations, as well as other valuable documentation of these interactions between the government and the tribes. Just a few years prior to the creation of this compilation, Charles C. Royce of the Bureau of American Ethnology, in an Annual Report of the Bureau, displayed the cessions from these treaties on State and Territory maps through a unique Royce Area Number system. Thus, with these two collations, the final texts of almost every recognized Indian treaty and a map placement of the lands ceded by these instruments became available. Both the treaty texts and the cession maps are available now on the Internet.

Depository Library Community and Collaborative Participation in E-Government: AskUS (FDLP Librarians) and We Will Answer! [Word file] [PowerPoint file]

Speakers: Cathy Nelson Hartman, Head, Digital Projects Department, University of North Texas Libraries and Associate Fellow, Texas Center for Digital Knowledge
Melody Specht Kelly, Associate Dean, University of North Texas Libraries and adjunct professor, School of Library and Information Science, University of North Texas

The continuation of the Federal Depository Library Program's historic information dissemination, access and preservation roles are now dependent upon multi-agency e-government collaboration. The collections and research expertise of the Federal Depository Libraries are the critical features missing in current e-government service models. The presenters propose that the public service and resource discovery features now available at FDLP Libraries be coordinated nationally via an AskUS - FDLP Library Portal.

New Mexico Digital Documents
(PowerPoint file)
Speakers: Marcia Faggioli Smith, State Documents Librarian, New Mexico State Library
Patricia Hewitt, Director of Technical Services, New Mexico State Library

As more and more documents are published only on the Web documents libraries are facing a dilemma: how to collect and preserve important local materials, and "fugitive" documents. The New Mexico State Library developed a GILS search engine, and later added and tracked URLS in cataloging records to solve this problem. Now we are using OCLC's Digital Archive service to harvest and preserve "born digital" documents, as well as selected dual format. Learn how the State Library addressed this dilemma by revising its state documents collection development policy, its plans to change the New Mexico administrative code, and its collaboration with the State Archives and state depository libraries to manage this digital collection.

Web Usage Statistics and Website Evaluation – A case study of a government publications library website
(PowerPoint file)
Speaker: Susan Xue, Assistant Government Publications Librarian, University of Colorado at Boulder

Web usage statistics are often used as a tool for assessing a website, despite some of their drawbacks. This presentation attempts to evaluate a government publications library website by studying its usage statistics. It examines organization, including access, search ability, and structure, of electronic government information in subject directory format. This study reveals that a subject directory website is an important tool for distributing electronic government information, but it requires continuous development. The usage statistics are useful in monitoring search engine ranking, improving display, structure, and search ability.

Electronic Vertical File
(Handout 1) (Handout 2) (Handout 3)
Speakers: Jim Veatch, Technical Services Librarian, Thomas Branigan Memorial Library
Justine Honeyman, Library Consultant, Justine in Nashville

Almost everything that was wrong with the traditional vertical file is solved with an electronic vertical file. Branigan Library in Las Cruces is developing an extensive file of small electronic publications, primarily from government agencies. Jim Veatch, Branigan’s Technical Services Librarian, will discuss the selection, organization, and presentation of the electronic vertical file concept and its potential for library outreach. He will focus on Federal publications, a number of which are not in the Depository Library Program. This presentation will include a PowerPoint presentation and handouts. Attendees will be able to replicate the strategies from this presentation in their own libraries.

Permanent Public Access in the 21st Century and Policy Implications for the Southwest
(Acrobat file)
(Word file)
Speaker: Aimí©e Piscitelli Quinn, University of Illinois at Chicago

Upon completion of a 2-year study of the Bush administration information policy, the GODORT Federal Documents Task Force on Permanent Public Access found a consistent, deliberate policy shift from open access to more stringent rules guarding the release of information. As a result, definitions for public access have changed and secrecy is more prevalent than before. The presenter will outline the shifts in policy and provide some tangible solutions on the impact for libraries in the Southwest, who are particularly vulnerable due to the geography of the West.

Don't Leave Home Without It: Using Government Information to Plan a Perfect Vacation

Speaker: Linda Risseeuw, Phoenix Public Library

Plan your long-awaited vacation using government information, both in print and online. Find out about national parks, national monument, forests and scenic locations.

Federal information can also help you plan for a trip overseas. Get a passport, learn about foreign countries, and will that cruise ship make you sick.

Submerged: Diving and Documents
Speaker: Matt Russell, Archeologist, National Park Service – Submerged Resources Center

An underwater archeologist from the National Park Service will talk about projects conducted by this Santa Fe-based office. The team documents and assesses underwater cultural heritage in our nation’s National Parks, including such icons as the USS Arizona and Ellis Island. This speaker will discuss underwater archeological research conducted by a federal agency in a management framework, and talk about how this data is disseminated to the public as government documents and in popular formats.

With increasing awareness of America's underwater cultural heritage, the US National Park Service began documenting the location and condition of shipwrecks in the 1960's. This activity accelerated in the 1970's as park managers became more aware of the richness and international importance of submerged resources in the National Park System. In 1980, the Submerged Cultural Resources Unit (known as SCRU) was formed and staffed by underwater archeologists and photographers to provide the expertise required by managers of national parks with submerged lands. Renamed the Submerged Resources Center in 1999 to include natural resources, the core mission of the program has remained the same: to inventory and evaluate submerged resources in the National Park System and to assist other agencies, nationally and internationally, with underwater heritage resource issues.
