1.1.Dibblee Geological Foundation Merges with Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History
The Thomas W. Dibblee, Jr. Geological Foundation and the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History have announced plans for a merger that would bring the lifelong work of legendary field geologist, Tom Dibblee, to fruition and ultimately create an endowed center for geology at the Museum.
Mr. Dibblee, age 90, who still occasionally walks the Central Coast’s back country with students and fellow geologists, has devoted 75 years of his life to mapping California geology – crisscrossing one fourth of the state on foot.
“Most field geologists aspire to produce one map or a small section of a map in their career,” said John Powell, President of the Dibblee Geological Foundation. “Mr. Dibblee has mapped more than 500 quadrangles of California geology. “He is a living-legend for good reason,” he said. “The Dibblee Geological Foundation has published 110 of those quadrangles over the last 18 years. We intend to publish the remainder over the next several years in partnership with the Museum.” Mr. Dibblee is a descendant of Jose de la Guerra, pioneer settler of Santa Barbara, and Ebenezer Dibblee, an immigrant to California from Massachusetts in the 19th century. He grew up on the historic San Julian Ranch located near Lompoc, California. Among his many achievements, in 1948 he discovered the important Cuyama oil field in the Transverse Ranges of California while working for the Richfield Oil Corporation. In recognition of his work, Richfield named the main oil-producing horizon the "Dibblee Sand”.
The merger, announced by Mr. Powell and Museum Executive Director, Dr. Karl Hutterer, will result in the establishment of the Thomas W. Dibblee Jr. Center for Earth Sciences, and will be endowed by Mr. Dibblee and other supporters of geology. The Center will initially focus upon field geology and the publication of the Dibblee geologic maps. It will eventually encompass a broad range of geological activities and services. The Dibblee Center will house the archive of Mr. Dibblee’s original field sheets, geologic field records, as well as his collections of minerals, fossils, and marbles.
“The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is pleased and proud to be able to preserve and cultivate the legacy of Tom Dibblee, who has done so much to help us understand the dynamic forces that have shaped our land,” said Dr. Hutterer. “Tom Dibblee is an icon of our community and a major influence in the history of California geology.” “I am very appreciative of the Dibblee Geological Foundation and the Museum for creating this agreement, which is an honor for me and will be helpful to the understanding of geology in the future,” said Mr. Dibblee from his home, only a few blocks from the Museum.
The Museum expects to begin operation of the Dibblee Center, and to take over production and distribution of the Dibblee geologic maps, beginning in early 2003.
1.2.David Rumsey Collect Receives "Webby" Award
The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection has received the best technical achievement Web site in the 2002 Webby Awards http://www.webbywards.com , the leading international honors for Web sites.
The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection, one of the largest private map collections in the United States, numbers more than 150,000 maps and includes rare 18th and 19th century North and South American atlases, charts, globes, wall maps and related items. The online collection, www.davidrumsey.com, currently numbers more than 6,500 high-resolution digital images, including a series of maps published in 1814 documenting Lewis and Clark's trek across America.
Using Luna Imaging's Insight software, Web viewers experience this unique collection of historical maps in a revolutionary way. Complete cataloging data accompanies every image, allowing for in-depth searches of the collection. Using Insight, multiple maps from different time periods can be viewed side-by-side. Or, the end user can create their own collection of maps by saving groups of images online that hold particular interest.
In addition, Luna Imaging's Insight Java Client can be downloaded from The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection Web site. It has been designed for those desiring advanced software functionality.
Hailed by The Wall Street Journal as a celebration of "sites that pave important paths to the Internet's next phase," the Webby Awards are determined by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a diverse, 350-person organization whose membership includes film director Francis Ford Coppola, musicians David Bowie and Beck, cyberguru Esther Dyson, CEO of Real Networks Rob Glaser, Chef Julia Child, and Electronic Frontier Foundation Founder John Perry Barlow.
"The Webby Awards showcase the best of what the Internet has to offer in terms of innovation, creativity and originality," says Maya Draisin, executive director of the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences. "The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection's nomination for a Webby Award is a testament to its great contributions in pushing the Internet envelope."
1.3.Jon Carlson Awarded the Helen Wallis Fellowship
The fourth Helen Wallis Fellow, Jon Carlson, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Political Science, Arizona State University, took up residence in the British Library's Map Library on 22 May 2002 for three months.
The fellowship, named after the former Map Librarian, the late Dr Helen Wallis, 'confers recognition by the Library on a scholar whose work will help promote the extended and complementary use of the British Library's book and cartographic collections in historical investigation'. The Wallis Fellow has similar privileges to those accorded the Centre for the Book Fellows (with an additional £300 to spend on BL services).
Jon Carlson will be researching the process by which the the modern European global system expanded to include new regions, and the underlying economic, political and cultural processes that accompanied this expansion with particular reference to the Native Americans of the Vancouver Island region, the Asanti of West Africa, the kingdom of Abyssinia and Japan.
For further information please contact email@example.com. The closing date for each annual award will be 1 May.
1.4.New Web Page Concerning Thefts of Early Maps and Books
A series of webpages have just been mounted, in response to the series of thefts in recent years of early maps from libraries in North America and Europe. Entering via the menu http://ihr.sas.ac.uk/maps/thefts.html gives access to four specific pages:
The third page carries a report of a seminar, held in Aberystwyth two weeks ago. This concluded that what was most needed to ensure a better response to any future thefts was more effective co-ordination (internationally) within the research library and archive communities, and between those groups and the trade networks. Participants also supported the immediate disclosure by institutions, firstly of the circumstances of the theft, and secondly of the full details of what had been taken. In that way, other libraries would be forewarned, and the trade could assist in apprehending the thieves and recovering the stolen items.
- How should we respond to early map thefts?
- Links relating to the theft of early books and maps
- Report of the 'Responding to Theft' seminar (National Library of Wales, 25 April 2002)
- European map thefts (2001)
A publicly accessible, web register (with the name of the institution concerned suppressed if it wished) was suggested as the best way forward, provided that copy-specific details were included.
'How should we respond to early map thefts?' explores those suggestions in greater depth, in a personal capacity. The extensive list of Links (many of which relate to Rare Books) details 'the networks and practices of institutions and the trade, and the reporting of thefts'.
It is hoped that some of these ideas may be fed into the forthcoming conference on 'Library Security Management', to be held at the Royal Library, Copenhagen, 13-14 May http://www.kb.dk/kb/security/Program/index-en.htm.
If this issue concerns you, please take a moment to look at these pages and provide comments, corrections or additions to Tony Campbell firstname.lastname@example.org (former Map Librarian, British Library)
