Film Collection Donated by Harry Sweet
By Fang Gu, Head, Library Media Center

Over ten years ago, Harry Sweet, Sacramento Valley’s first television new camera operator in 1953, donated a collection of six million feet of film covering a variety of events from January 1967 through September 1981 to the University Library. Although it has been several years since we received the collection, the footage is currently available. see story

Sierra Valley Library Network Meeting/Speaker
By Fred Batt, Associate Dean, Library Administration

I attended the recent Administrative Council meeting of Sierra Valley Library Network (SVLN). This is the network within the Library of California that includes CSUS and UC Davis as well as an array of academic, public, special and school libraries in multiple counties. This network began with a planning meeting in March 1999. It was incorporated in January 2001 and the initial Council meeting was in March 2001. It has been involved in activities such as offering grants, providing Z39.50 to libraries, offering group purchases of electronic databases (CSUS benefited by getting our NewsBank subscriptions subsidized by SVLN), conducting technology needs assessments, offering delivery to libraries (including school libraries) among other projects. see story
