( UNL student now may check out materials
from libraries at Nebraska Wesleyan University,
Union College and Southeast Community
Through m exchange program, students can
borrow books, magazines, and other reference
materials from each library by presenting their
college identification cards.
The library program, which went into effe.ct
Feb. 17, is a pilot project, said Dean Waddel,
i assistant dean of the UNL library system. UNL
library system administrators will decide with
administrators at each participating school
whether the exchange program should be
changed or continued in its present format, he
Waddel said statistics on student participation
in the program are not available yet.
The library exchange program was established
after a December 1974 meeting of nine librarians
from each of the schools. Circulation Services
Librarian Charles Chamberlain and Humanities
librarian Mary Doak of UNL attended the
Guidelines for the library exchange program
were presented at the meeting and approved by
governing bodies at each of the schools, Waddel
said. The program was endorsed by the dean of
the UNL library system, Gerald A. Rudolph,
The idea for the library exchange program
came from a librarian conference at UNL last
November, he said. The program allows faculty
members from each postsecondary school in
Nebraska to borrow materials from school
libraries, Weddel said. '
Although UNL has a larger volume of library
materials, the other schools may have specialized
book collections that university students need,
"If a student has an interest in religious
material, we would not have or be expected to
have material on a particular religious
denomination," he said. "The student who needs
specialized information on religious material
could go to the library at Nebraska Wesleyan and
. get the information he needs."
Zumberge hails tent shows' revival
During special Statehood Day
observations Monday in the Nebraska
Unicameral, UNL Chancellor James
Zumberge said the university is
developing a program reviving the
traditional traveling Chautauquas, tent
shows that brought drama, debate and
music to early America.
"It is especially significant," noted
Zumberge, "that the university has
embarked on an endeavor such as this,
that is so rich in the heritage of Nebraska
and of America, on the eve of our
nation's 200th birthday."
"With the support of Nebraska
communities from the Sandhills to the
Missouri River, we hcpe to rekindle this
spirit of togetherness once again in the
revival of the Chautauqua, so popular
from the 1880s to the 1920s," he said.
Zumberge extended a special
invitation to each of the state senators to
participate in the university's revival of
Chautauqua in each of their districts.
The Chautauqua will play in six
Nebraska communities between May 30
and June 10.
The revived Chautauqua will run for
two days in each of the six communities.
It will open in Chadron on May 30, in
Scottsbluff on June 1, in McCook June 3,
in Hastings June 5, in Norfolk on June 7
and for the final two days in Nebraska
City on June 9.
In each of these communities except
Hastings, which retains its original
Chautauqua building, the main events of
the program will take place in a large
tent, which measures 80 by 100 feet and
has a seating capacity for more than
The high point of the two-day
program will be discussion of crucial
current issues by nationaly prominent
speakers, and a full-scale musical drama,
written and produced especially for the
occasion. The play will span four
generations of life in Nebraska. '
Hugh Luke, co-chairman of the
University's advisory planning committee,
isaid the Chautauqua program "will be a
'pending of talent and ideas provided by
the university and by the host
"Musical events, theatre, speeches, and
many other events will be organized to
display its own talent, its art and to
arrange for related social events, parades,
picnics and barbecues " he said.
The interest shown by the host
communities and many others contacted
about the Chautauqua project has been
"spectacular," Jo Ann Kimball said.
Kimball is assistant to President Varner in
the area of arts. She said they have found
many Nebraskans who took part in the
early Chautauquas, as performers or
spectators, who want to share this
experience with others.
Program financing is coming from a
variety of sources, including the host
communities. Matching funds are being
provided by the Nebraska Committee for
the Humanities and the Nebraska
