On March 6, Ann Latta will present information on California documents entitled: California: Land, Water and Growth. The following Wednesday, March 13, Malgorzata Schaefer's session will focus on how to find full-text articles online through such resources as Project Muse, JSTOR, First Search databases, Policy file, and others. Please spread the word to faculty, students and staff who might be interested.

2. Buckminster Fuller Exhibit at the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts

In association with the current exhibition in the Bing Wing and the conversation series about Buckminster Fuller, there is a small exhibition at the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts related to the influential design scientist. Works on view include drawings, photographs, models, as well as a brief video of clips made from a selection of 15 films and videos recently preserved by Media Preservation and Special Collections staff. Produced by Manuscript Processing Librarian Sean Quimby, the video provides insight into Fuller's intriguing mind and the way he engaged his audiences, such as a gathering of hippies in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park circa 1966. Further, the video reveals the wealth of research materials in audio-visual form in the Fuller archives held by SUL's Special Collections. The exhibit is open to the public through June 30.

3. New Film Titles from Korea

The Media/Microtext area has responded to the popular overnight loan of DVD'S to faculty and students by launching a collection building effort to acquire recent titles as well as to replace classic films on videotape with DVD copies.

In addition, the DVD format has helped to make foreign film more accessible to a variety of audiences through alternate language and sub-title options. A generous gift of a thousand dollars from the Korean Students Association has been directed toward improving the library's holding in Korean film. A few of the DVD titles acquired recently include:

Inj*ong saj*ong polg*ot *opta = Nowhere to hide
Kohae = Tearful story
Song*o = Rainbow trout
P‘aran taemun = Birdcage inn
T‘u k‘apsu 3 = Two cops 3
