ECU students promote negative image

By Brad Oldham
Staff Writer
Walking off the field Sat-
urday night after the Pirates' 13-
10 loss to Duke University, ECU
head coach Steve Logan had a
lot to get off his chest. It had
nothing to do with strategies or
results from the previous game,
it had to do with a front page
article on the sports section of
the Raleigh News & Observer.
The article, entitled "Repu-
tation for rowdiness brings both
jeers and cheers at ECU" and
written by staff writer Steve
Politi, highlighted every nega-
tive stereotype that could be as-
sociated with the student body
of East Carolina University.
"Better judgment tells me
not to say what I'm going to say,
but I'm going to say it anyway
was the first thing out of Logan's
mouth after entering the press
room. "The front page of that
paper was a disgrace. It's time
to forget it. There's class in
Duke's program, there's class in
East Carolina, there's class at
North Carolina State, North
Carolina and Wake Forest. Let's
get on with it
The article ignored any ac-
complishments made by ECU.
Paving the way for Politi in the
article were the handful of ECU
students who bent over back-
wards for him last week, feed-
ing him everything he wanted to
hear to support his negative pic-
ture of ECU students as a whole.
"We don't have a great
reputation of academics Theta
Chi fraternity president Brad
Wiese was quoted as saying. "We
have to have something we can
be proud of. At least we know
that we can party better than any-
one else
A freshman gave the ex-
cuse that the parties taking place
in her dorms and around her
caused her to flunk many of her
classes during her first semester.
Another person who Politi
interviewed for the story was
ECU'S Dean of Students, Ronald
P. Speier, who saw the negativity
in Politi's article coming "a mile
"When I spoke to him
(Politi), he had a negative story
on ECU in mind from the start
Speier said. "All he wanted to
talk about was all the hearsay
associated with East Carolina.
He had nothing to do with all
the good things involved here,
such as having the number one
Panhellenic Council in the na-
As far as the students' com-
ments, Speier said: "If you talk
to enough people here for long
enough, your bound to get them
to say what you want them to
say. There's really no reason that
we need to be continually de-
fending ourselves here, on issues
that are seven to 10 years old.
There are so many positive things
going on at ECU, both in the class-
room and extracurricular activi-
ties as well
Politi brought up the much
talked about football game on
Sept. 5, 1987, when ECU fans
rushed the field at the end of the
32-14 victory over the Wolfpack.
Injuries and extensive damage to
the facility resulted, and was the
reason that the N.C. State-ECU
rivalry ceased.
"If we can't come up with a
program that can ensure the game
takes place in the proper spirit
said the late athletic director Jim
Valvano at the time of the contro-
versy, "then we won't play
' ECU Chancellor Richard
E. Eakin and the entire ath-
letic department have tried to
rekindle the match-up for
seven years, but have yet to
pit the two teams up for the
regular season.
The infamous Syracuse
fight, during the ESPN broad-
cast last season, was also men-
tioned in Politi's article. As
much as students and media
of ECU have tried to put this
incident behind them and
move on, Politi and Wiese
made it more painful to di-

Construction has continued to
squeeze parking spaces off cam-
pus, transforming ECU's transit
system from an alternative into a
necessity. Frustration across cam-
pus has led to the formation of Stu-
dents Against Parking Problems
(STOPP) and left many wondering,
"Where do I park?"
"We have not run out of
spaces, and we will not run out of
spaces said Pat Gertz, director of
traffic services. "It may be full on
the core campus but we still have
plenty of parking available at
Minges so far this year
She estimated the total num-
ber of spaces to be around 6,000. A
color-coded parking map should
be available by the end of August,
Gertz said.
A 500-space freshmen lot
has been added near the Allied
Health building to replace the
spaces taken out by construction.
Minges is now open for univer-
sity registered vehicles includ-
ing limited and commuter stick-
ers, Gertz said. Parking at Minges
forces commuters to ride shuttles
to campus. During peak times,
the buses can transport around
250 people within 20 minutes,
said Ryland Walters, ECU's tran-
sit manager. Bus maps are avail-
able in Meridenhall, on the buses
and in the housing offices.
"Providing parking spaces
is not the hard part, changing
people's behavior about where
we like to park � that's the hard
part for all of us said Bruce
Flye, director of facilities plan-
Flye admits that all of the
construction can be too much
for anyone to handle at one
time, but feels there is u neces-
sity for it.
"In a state system, when
opportunity strikes, you go
ahead and take advantage of it.
Otherwise, it's gone forever
Flye said.
Gertz said that ECU does
provide adequate parking and
students unsatisfied with
where they are allowed to park
should take advantage of the
transit system.
ECU's transit system has
expanded in the past two years.

Applicants needed for scholarships
By Katy Newton
Staff Writer
Application deadlines for most
major scholarships are fast approach-
ing, and many students may still be
unaware of what grants are available
and how to apply.
Available grants include the
Truman Scholarship for students in-
terested in careers in government or
public service, the Rhodes Scholar-
ship for students who want to do
graduate work at Oxford University
and the highly esteemed Fulbright
Scholarship which funds graduate
study abroad.
Dr. David Sanders, director
of the ECU Honors Program, is the
Fulbright Program adviser for
ECU. Sanders sees the Honors
Program as a valuable resource for
grant-seeking students. In addi-
tion to providing recommenda-
tions and advice to students inter-
ested in scholarships, the honors
program also offers a committee
of several faculty members to help
students with the application pro-
cess. The members of this commit-
tee have either received or applied
for scholarships, or they are cur-
rently active as advisers or contact
"What we need is more
people being aware of these pos-
sibilities and doing the right
things Sanders said.
Perhaps the hardest part
for students is knowing what
the right things are when it
comes to applying for a scholar-
ship. Sanders strongly recom-
mends that students take full
use of the university and the
faculty as early as possible in-
stead of trying to apply for a
grant without any help.

"When I came here

ruary, I was very im-
pressed with what I

He is particularly
excited about the work-
ing development of a
Ph.D. program in mari-

added this fall, the silver line,
which serves several neighbor-
hoods on Greenville Boulevard
and 10th Street. Six buses are on
the road during the day, two are
shuttles running from Minges to
Christenbury Gym every five min-
utes, Walters said.
"It's the shuttle service
probably saving time, you don't
have to ride around for 20 min-
utes looking for a parking spot
Walters said. "We drop you off in
front of Christenbury, as close as
you can actually come and park
Walters said that the buses
are always crowded during the
first week of class, especially dur-
ing the main class times between 8
a.m. and 10 a.m.
"It's too crowded and
they're late most of the time, also
the buses should be offered at
night Jenny Cottle, an education
major said. "That's not fair, what
happens when we have classes at
Walters is hoping to expand
the transit system, including ser-
vice to the hospital. But with the
exception of ordering a new bus,
he has no definite plans at this
"If we get the funding to
grow, that's fine, if not then there's
not much more we can do than
what we're doing now Walters
He is proud to say the transit
system has never turned down a
passenger and that late buses can-
not alwaysbe helped. Every route,
except one, has to pass through
the construction on 10th Street,
and bus drivers usually wait for
latecomers running for the stops,
Walters said. In response to those
who complain about crowding, if
you cannot take the heat, take an
earlier bus.
"If someone lives at the end
of a route, they could catch the
previous bus. That would help a
lot Walters said.
When overcrowding does
become an extreme, there is a bus
on standby that drivers can radio
in to finish their route. The standby
bus has been used twice this year.
Walters believes that people
who commute from Tar River,
Wilson Acres or other close com-
plexes that have pirate rides avail-
able, should not spend money on
a sticker. Bus fees are included in
everyone's student fees whether
students take the bus or not.
Limited stickers are available
to commuters with less than 31
credit hours, other commu ters and
faculty are also allowed to pur-
chase limited stickers. They are
$35, half the price of a regular
sticker. Currently, 1,414 limited
stickers have been sold.
Gertz is hoping to add more
alternative stickers next year, such
as offering core campus parking
to upper-class residents for around
$300. 1,185 residents have stick-
ers. Commuters make up the bulk
of parking, buying 3,074 stickers.
Faculty and staff take up almost
2,000 spaces. Freshmen have
bought 1,105 parking passes.
Manv students feel that
freshmen should not be allowed
to park on campus. Gertz said if
parking were not offered to fresh-
men, they would bring their cars
to Greenville anyway.
Flye said around $120 mil-
lion is invested in construction
around different areas of cam-
pus. There are no plans to build
parking lots closer to campus.
Future plans for the university
call for an all-pedestrian campus
within the next several years, Flye
There must be several things
in place before that can happen
Gertz said. "There must be suffi-
cient parking and transporta-
tion in place
Members of STOPP be-
lieve they can change the pe-
destrian campus plan through
support and numbers. The
group is urging traffic services
to have at least 50 spaces avail-
able for every 100 stickers sold.
"Sometime this year, we're
going to be circulating a survey
on campus about parking and
how students feel said Matt
Stuart, a member of STOPP. "We
feel that if we can get more stu-
dents behind us that the admin-
istration w ill listen to us because
they have listened in the past

ing sticker and said on more

Duke. I think the crowd really
took their staff by surprise. Ticket
confrontations were a problem,
because they oversold their tick-
ets. The fact that it was a close
game helped, because the crowd
was into the game and did not
lead to other problems. There was
a lot of alcohol in the stadium
though, and that is a major con-
cern. There was a lot poured out
too, but the behavior due to the
alcohol was minor

OK, now, I want every one of you students who
has ever parried at ECU tobow your heads in shame.
Eachoneof you who has ever skipped a classbecause
you had a little too much fun the night before, keep
your eyes low to the ground. You will never be as
good as your moral superiors in Raleigh, Chapel Hill
or Durham, because they know how to act
responsibly, with dignity and class. They would
never take part in the hellion behavior that is East
Carolina University.
They would never do something sobase as to rip
down an opponent's goal-posts or have tailgate
parties in the parking lot before the game. No N.C.
State or Duke student has ever been in an altercation,
especially in a public arena like a college football
game. You wouldn't catch a UNC student drunk at
a fraternity party, because they don't dare do those
things. That type of behavior is reserved for those
"upstarts" from East Carolina, because they are too
stupid and immature to know any better.
ECU students justaren'tgood enough to get into
a real university, so all we can do is shake our heads
at them and try to teach them the proper way to
behave. But that's just a waste of time, anyhow, all
they do at East Carolina is drink and party, they just
can't do anything else.
This is the perception perpetuated by Raleigh's
News and Observer in their Saturday, Sept 10,
edition. In an article entitled "Reputation for
rowdiness brings both jeers ami cheers at ECU
staff writer Steve Politi, in all his objective glory, sets
out to right the evil wrongs of our fair Greenville and
banish the bad, bad ECU student body to the
imprisonment of these stereotypes forever. To do
this, Politi enlisted the aid of an over-exuberant
fraternity president, a freshman who had flunked
out of serveral classes and reports (some nearly a
decade old) of rowdy ECU football fans doing what
they apparently do best rootin, toorin and raisin'
What an outstanding attempt to find a
accurate account of the ECU psyche! This from a
professional in the field in sports journalism!
The most significant statistics that Politi was
able to present were accounts from 1987, when the
Pirates last met N.C. State in Raleigh. The State
campus and stadium sustained damage after a
mass of ECU fans stormed the field. It seems that,
despite the fact that this event occurred nearly a
decade ago, it will forever be embedded in the
minds of those who would seek to downgrade this
school. Politi also mentioned the much-publicized
fight at last year's Syracuse game. Absent from the
piece was that the fight was an isolated incident
which was handled admirably by our university's
As students, we certainly have a right to be
angered by these perceptions, but we also have to
think about the role we have played in perpetuating
them. If the only statements that come from our
university student body are negative, men that is
certainly the feeling that others will get We dare
say, however, it is extremely doubtful in our minds
that Mr. Politi actively pursued any positive
comments from students and only reluctantly
printed the ones from Dean SpeierorMr.Byrd from
the Pirate Club.
Still, as students, we have to make sure that
when people ask about our institution they hear
aboutour greatmedical program, theatre and music
departments, sports programs or any of our other
outstanding programs instead of feeding them
insight into keg parties and downtown celebrations.
Don'tget us wrong, we love to party here as much
as anybody, and we refuse to feel guilty that we go
to a school thai. Knows how to have a good time.
However, it sickens us to think that professionals
in Raleigh actually believe that ECU is good for
nothing else.
Perhaps these so-called media "professionals"
need toleamalittlemoreaboutobjective reporting.
That's great, we hear ECU has a fine journalism
Racial quotas detrimental to racial harmony
Self-reliance and individuality needed in '90s
Despite America's claim to
being a pluralistic country that
advocates and appreciates
diversity, the pressure to conform,
be it to an acceptable lifestyle or
the embracement of conventional
morality, is overwhelmingly
strong. A person is allowed to
maintain a "tolerable" level of
individuality so long as his or her
sense of self-identity does not
conflict with the society at large.
The issue then becomes raised over
what constitutes appropriate
individuality and whether or not
one should be permitted to express
this individuality without being
subjected to public scrutiny.
In his book Creativity and
Conformity, Clark Moustakas
writes: "Every individual
embodies and contains a
uniqueness, a reality, that makes
him or her unlike any other person
or thing. To maintain this
uniqueness in the face of threats
and pressures, in times of shifting
patterns and moods, isthe ultimate
challenge and responsibility of
every man and woman
The key words in this
statement are "in face of threats
and pressures, in times of shifting
patterns and moods If
individuality is based upon its
compatibility with the current
social atmosphere, or is d iscarded
due to verbal condemnation or
physical threats, then one must
ask him or herself these two
questions: Am I uniquely different,
or just perceive myself that way in
the context of the times? And is
my individuality important
enough to my sense of well-being
that I am willing to defend it even
in the face of persecution?
I believe that Henry David
Thoreau provided the best answer
to the question of how any of us
should live when he said: "An
individual's first duty is to live his
life as his principles demand In
other words, no one butourselves
can dictate who we should or
should not be, or how we should
or should no live. Thoreau did not
compromise his beliefs at a time in
America that was supposedly less
tolerant then ours, and I certainly
don not see why anyone should
do so in 1994.
Thoreau's contemporary,
Ralph Waldo Emerson also
addressed the subject of
individuality in his well-known
essay "Self-Reliance Emerson
wrote "It is easy in the world to
live after the world's opinion; it is
easy in solitude to live after our
own; but the great man is he who
in the midst of the crowd keeps
with perfect sweetness the
independence of solitude He
goesontosay: "Fornonconformity
the world whips your with its
displeasure Emerson'swordsare
just as apropos to the present age
as they were when he penned them
in 1841. American society has
apparently changed little since
Emerson's day, because it
continues to "whip" individuals
"with its displeasure" for failing
to conform.
In discussing the issue of
nonconformity, as Emerson did
earlier in a literary fashion, Clark
Moustakas provides a
psychological perspective on
society's behavior towards
unconventionality: "Rejection
often occurs because we fear that
if we permit an individual to
explore his desires and interests in
his won way he will develop anti-
By H. White
social tendencies or become lazy
and indifferent. We feel we have
to condition him, teach him
directly, keep after him to socialize
him, to make his believe like others
and become a responsible person
He further states: "Under
threat, the self is less open to
spontaneous expression. When
free from threat the self-is more
open � that is, free to be free and
free to strive toward
Considering how negative
American society has become
towards self-expression, it is no
wonder why everyone is so
repressed and few achieve
While I do not agree with the
media's scathing and sweeping
generalization that my generation
is "disillusioned, apathetic and
lacking in self-identity I do feel
that many of my peers are at a loss
to establish their individuality �
an individuality separate form
media or peer influences. If today's
youth are lacking in anything, it is
originality. I appeal to my fellow
Generation Xers to assert their
individuality and to heed
Emerson's admonition "A foolish
consistency is the hobgoblin of
little minds
With the world in a constant
state of turmoil, where people
everywhere are struggling for
social and political change, it is
imperative that at the price of
losing all else, people hold on to
their individuality. This
generation has the power to tear
down the establishment and
initiate reform if it will only throw
off the yoke of conformity. As
Emerson so aptly put it: "Insist on
yourself; never imitate
Aquip thatiscommonly heard
among the descendants of dead
white European males is that,
because of our forefathers
transgressions, we face an uphill
struggle when it comes to finding
gainful employment. This
phenomenon can partially be
traced to the actions of the Equal
Employment Opportunity
Commission (EEOC), an
organization that emerged out of
the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The EEOC sought to make the
ideal of equal opportunity in the
job market a reality for people of
color. What began as a good faith
effort to erase racial discrimination
by employers has gone awry.
Instead of seeking competence
from job applicants, employers
have been strong armed by the
EEOC to hire, and or retain
workers, on the basis of skin color,
not skill.
Originally, the Civil Rights Act
of 1964 prohibited the use of race
quotas: "It shall be an unlawful
employment practice for an
employer (1) to fail or refuse to hire
or to discharge any individual, or
otherwise discriminate because
or an individuals race, color,
religion, sex, or national origin
However, during debatesover
the 1991 Civil Rights Act, civil rights
leaders begged the White House
for another generation of quotas
for minorities. The reality of the
situation is that the EEOC threatens
employers with lawsuits if they do
not comply with their commands.
This can be seen in a recent
survey of the nation's top
employers that revealed that 72
percent rely on quota systems for
hiring purposes.
Job testing that is meant to
separate the qualified form the
unqualified have been deemed by
the EEOC as discriminatory
towards minorities. Indeed, many
police and fire departments are
now hiring according to skin tone
and not competence.
The Los Angeles Police
Department instituted a racial
hiring strategy that has made it
almost impossible for a white male
to be hired. In order to be
considered for employment, outof
a possible 100 points on the
candidacy exam, females need a
94, blacks 95, Latinos 96, and white
males nothing less than a 100.
Law schools have also been
pressured by the federal
governmenttoadmitlower scoring
minority applicants ahead ofhigher
scoring non-minorities.
Recently, law professors
testified in court that even though
blacks and Hispanics may have
scores will below many whites (on
both Law School Aptitude Tests
and GP A), they are admitted almost
automatically to many law schools,
while many qualified whites are
A white woman sued a Texas
law school because she was denied
admittance due to her race. In court
the question was asked to a law
school professor: "Are there white
applicants who were not admi tted
who would have gotten in if they
had been black?"
He replied, "The answer is
clearly yes. That's the nature of a
racial preference Unfair testing
practices may have deeper
implications than one may think.
John Hunter, an industrial
psychologist, asserts that the
By Steven A. Hill
nation'sGNP would be2.5 percent
higher if all employers were free to
hire on merit and not color�that
amounts to $150 billion.
In pursuit of the noble ideal of
racial harmony, EEOC attorneys
have gone to ridiculous lengths is
court. A black stewardess who
worked for Piedmont Aviation
Company refused to accepta flight
assignment; her obstinancecaused
the flight to be canceled. The EEOC
asserted that she was dismissed
not because of her actions, but
because of her color. The Postal
Service looks for competent drivers
to operate mail trucks; they were
sued by the EEOC because they
refused to hire a black man whose
license had been previously
revoked four times. A Florida
transport company tha t ships very
expensivecargo (computers, drugs,
munitions) was sued because they
refused to employ a Hispanic
gentleman who was a convicted
Virtuous character and
intelligence are ignorant of skin
color. Moral and intellectual
standards should not be lowered
to accommodate minorities. It is
unfair to admit that certain groups
of people are handicapped
because they cannot, or will not,
strive to achieve similar high
ethical and intellectual goals al
the rest of society. To admit this
would at best be downgrading
and would render that group
inferior. As if we already do not
have enough problems in our
nation, minority quotas
exacerbate already present racial
tension. Quotas are bad for
minorities, bad for employers �
and bad for the country.
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
Your recent news article concerning the
limitation placed on the Pirate Points Debit Card
in The Student Stores Aug. 30 for the most part
gave a balanced viewpoint on this controversy.
Unfortunately, the subsequent editorial Sept. 1
did not. There are several points that need to be
The first is that the Pirate Points account is
offered totally as an option to students and is
purely for their convenience. There has never
been any interest in going beyond providing a
desired service. Many parents, familiar with
identical programs at other institutions, have
requested it. While it is true that UBE has made
every effort to become a participant in the Pirate
Point system, it was determined by the N.C.
Attorney General's Office, in z- extensive written
opinion, that expansion of the debit card beyond
the boundaries of the University would violate
State banking laws. What may occur in other
states or even at other institutions does not
invalidate the Attorney General's opinion. The
recent decision to limit the debit card in a manner
that would preclude students from making their
major book purchases through The Pirate Points
mechanism was made in the spirit of mutual
cooperation with the business community with
whom we coexist.
Although we regret the reduction in service
that has resulted for some, The Student Stores
continues to be committed to satisfying the needs
of our students through exemplary service, quality
products, and competitive prices. It should also
be noted that all of the net profits of Students
Stores are returned to our students directly in the
form of scholarships; the total recently passing
the $1,000,000 mark. I trust that most of our
students appreciate what The Student Stores is
doing to better serve their needs.

Rowdy Raleigh crowd "Stoned" at concert

Thirty years of sex, drugs and rock & roll haven't slowed down the Rolling
Stones. It's pickled them a bit, yes, but they're as fast as ever.
By Warren Sumner
Staff Writer
OK, let's get this out in the open:
Last Wednesday night in Carter-Finley
Stadium, I GOT STONED!
Well, in a rmnner of speaking.
The World s Greatest Rock and Roll
Band, the Rolling Stones, delighted a
rowdy Raleigh crowd Wednesday
night, performing a 21-song set tran-
scending 30 years of music. The band,
perhaps the greatest of all rock legends,
highlighted many of their past hits while
presenting some of their newest mate-
rial off this year's Voodoo Lounge.
Opening for the band was Lenny
Kravitz, one of the hottest new acts of
the decade, and he was absolutely on
fire. Kravitz heated the crowd with a
short set which included "Let Love
Rule" and "Are You Gonna Go My
Way " Judging by the response of the
older Stones fans at the venue, Kravitz
gained a number of new listeners.
After Kravitz made his departure,
actually walking through the ground
level of the stadium and greeting his
fans, the road crew began setting up the
Stones' mammoth stage set. An awe-
some collection of swirling lights, smoke
and video screens, the stage provided a
show in itself. When Stones drummer
Charlie Watts entered the stage and
pounded out the opening beats to the
Stones' cover of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade
Away a spooky, swamp-like atmo-
sphere had already been created.
The crowd roared with delight when
guitarists Ron Wood and Keith Richards
emerged from the swirling smoke, but
that roar was made even more deafening
with the entrance of the Mick Jagger, the
band'slegendaryfrontman.Jagger danced
around the stage and worked the crowd
in the manner that has made him a leg-
The band was pumping hard from its
opening, possibly due to the new life that
sideman bassist Darryl Jones had inter-
jected into the rhythm section. Jones, a
veteran player who has worked with
musical greats like Miles Davis and Sting,
had the unenviable task of replacing Bill
Wyman, who departed the band before
the recording of Voodoo Lounge. Jones,
with his solid grooves and never-waver-
ing pulse, had many in the crowd asking
"Bill Who?"
After the band had finished a couple
of their lesser-known rarities, the hits pa-
rade began as Richards and Woods kicked
off "ShatteredJagger wasa whir ling der-
vish, running from one side of the stage to
the other. Wood's solo was less than tech-
nically brilliant, (but hey, who cares; it's the
Stones, right?) The band followed with
"Rock's Off from Exile en Main St. and
"Sparks Will Fly a hard-pumping single
from Voodoo Lounge.
"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" fol-
lowed with the band pulsating with the
partying crowd. Jagger then announced
that the band would slow the show down,
which they did with "Beast of Burden
The video monitors on the stage came into
play with "Memory Motel as footage
from the Stones' past tours, particularly
views of the beach, were interposed with
the moni toring of the live show. "On Down
the Line" and "I Go Wild" continued the
group's Lounge material with Jagger and
Wood hugging each other in exhaustion at
the end of the songs.
The band, probably sensing that the
crowd was ready to hear some older mate-
rial,obliged the audience with "Miss You

an insightful, intriguing question
that will be debated much in the

I read the article shortly after
visiting one of the two new Wal-

a huge CD-ROM section with

As a graduate student, I
quicklv came to my senses and
hurried from the store to remove
ages and interesting concepts re-

the Atlantic article, I wondered if
perhaps books could become ob-

would be a computer disc where

Blues guitar legend John Mayall alive and well

Staff Writer
John Mayall has been playing the
blues for 30 years and is still going
strongwithanew album called "Wake
Up Call Mayall and his band, The
Blues Breakers, started30 years ago in
Mayall's bands have provided
amazingly fertile grounding for many
musicians. Eric Clapton, John Mcvie,
Aynsley Dunbar, Peter Greenand Mick
Taylor are just some of the stars that
have played in Mayall's Blues Break-
ers. The Blues Breakers' second album

period in British music history.
"It was quite exceptional then and

said. "It was an incredibly fertile pe-
riod of time that has become the foun-
dation of all today's rock
Mayall's name is mentioned with
greats like Clapton, Cream and the
Stones, all of whom came out of that
same period.
"Blues are a very honest form of
music he said. "Blues sets a spark of
identification with the person who is
listening because there is a story there
in the blues, or a tale of an emotion that
will be common to something in their
Blues is a very personal style of
music and Mayall knows how to de-
liver that sound. He has seen, soaked
up, learned, loved, played and pushed
his beloved blues to new sound hori-
He has done this with his new
album called "Wake Up Call which
features guest appearances by great
blues performers including Buddy
Guy, Albert Collins, Mick Taylor and
Marvis Staples.
The Blues Breakers alsostays with
Mavall's longtime rhythm section of
Joe Yueleondrumsand RichCorteson
bass guitar. Mayall also introduces
another brilliant guitarist he discov-
ered in Texas. His name is Buddy
Whittington and he could be yet an-
other rising young star that Mayall
could add to his list of great blues and
rock talent.
The Blues Breakers still use con-
temporary sounds and instruments
. jce they did 30 years ago to keep the
blues true and alive. The music is true
to his purest vision.
Some have called their new al-
bum the best new blues album since
the last release of Buddy Guy, who
appears on Mayall's album.
There are some old favorites like
"Nature's Disappearing" recorded
over twenty years ago and some in-
tense new songs like the title track,
which features Mick Taylor's strong
blues sound.
The album "Wake Up Call"
has world-wide sales now ap-
proaching a quarter million.
Mayall also received a Grammy
nomination for BestContemporary

John Lanier
instruments of
You may have never heard
of Jaron Lanier, but you have
seen some of his inventions. He
was a math prodigy at an early
age, an innovator in Virtual Re-
ality (he coined the term) and
has been an outspoken advo-
cate for the integration of high
technology into society. On top
of all that he is also an accom-
plished musician and his record-
ing debut, Instrumentsof Change,
is bound to be a surprise for
many people.
You would expect high-tech
synthesizer, computer-created
blips and beeps from someone
with his background, but this
album is just the opposite. Lanier
is a collector of folk instruments
from all over the world, many of
which (including a Balinese flute,
Thai mouth organ and Chinese
harp) he plays on the record.
He is very learned in West-
ern traditions of music as well as
world ethnic musics. Gershwin,
Bernstien and Stravinsky are
some of his modern influences,
but he also draws from medieval
cadences, Indian raga and
Sudanese gamelan. The main in-
fluences on this album are about
as far from high technology as
you can get.
The opening track, "Come
Along is the only piece in the
collection which uses synthesiz-
ers and samplers. The rest of the
tracks come from traditional in-
struments of both Eastern and
Western traditions. The second
track is where the real music
starts. "KhaenViolinDuo6"is
an urgent and mystical-sound-
ing piece of two very different
instruments from two different
cultures swirling together; it is
very intriguing, almost haunting.
"The Story of Water Dancing
in the Night Sky" is another gem
on this album. It is just Lanier on
theGu Zchung (Chinese classical
harp) and he says it is more a

Natural Born Killers
I generally don't like movie
soundtrack albums, especially when
they involve rock music. Usually
these albums are just sort of slapped
together as an afterthought, offering
a random collection of tired music
that should never have been resur-
rected from the Top 40 graveyard in
the first place. Tire Croiv soundtrack,
released earlier this year, proved an
exception to this rule with someeerie
material thatshared the film'sspooky
gothic feel. "One out of thousands
I mought, andchalkeditupasa fluke.
I may have to change my opin-
ion, however, because now we've
been blessed with the soundtrack to
Oliver Stone's controversial look at
mass murder and the American
media circus, Natural Born Killers.
Produced by Trent Reznor of indus-
trial music innovators Nine Inch
Nails, this is not only the best disc of
its type in recent memory, but it also
makes The Crow look like the
soundtrack for Back to tlie Future.
Crow is nowhere to be found here.
Every song fits the sick, murderous
humor of Natural Born Killers with-
out seeming forced. And that's quite
a feat, considering mat Patsy Cline,
all appear within one song of each
other. Also lurking within the re-
cesses of this disc are such diverse
musicians as Lard, Leonard Cohen,
Dr. Die, and Diamanda Galas.
This rather eclectic mix of music
is held together through die produc-
tionabilitiesofTrentReznor. Reznor
strategically plants dialoguefrom the
film into the tricky minefield of mu-
sic he's constructed, placing many
songs into context in a way they
wouldn't be if the music had simply
been presented alone.
The best example of this comes
early in the album, when Reznor is
faced withplacingtheCowboyJunk-
ies' version of "Sweet Jane" after the
thunder of L7's "Shitlist" and Patti
Smith's controversial punk anthem
"Rock and Roll Nigger The calm,
beautiful strainsof theCowboy Junk-
ies would be too jarring normally,
but Reznor prefaces the song with
a speech from the film in which
Micky and Mallory Knox, the natu-
ral born killers of the title, profess
their love for each other and their
dreams for the future. With that
intro, the mood changes subtly,
and "SweetJane"seemslikeanatu-
ral choice for the next track.
Another triumph for Reznor
is "SexisViolent'asong compiled
from two very different pieces of
music. The bulk of mis track is
taken from the Jane's Addiction
song 'Ted, Just Admit It a piece
about the media's fascination with
serial killer Ted Bundy that could
almost serve as a blueprint for
Stone's film. But just as that song is
about to explode into a frenzy of
guitarsand screaming, Reznor sud-
denly switches to Diamanda Ga-
las' incendiary rendition of
Screamin' Jay Hawkins' classic "I
Put a Spell on You
Then, justasGalas throws her-
self into incoherent ecstasy, Reznor
mixes in the crazed finale of the
Jane's Addiction tune. "Sex is Vio-
lent" winds down with both Jane's
Addiction frontman Perry Ferrell
and Galas screaming over the
apocalyptic guitars of David
Navaim And, just for good mea-
sure, Reznor also mixes in the
sounds of Mallory Knox's deadly

obstacle, however small, to portability.
Environmentalism has been such a
majorpush lately thatmanypeopleare
trying to follow Thoreau's advice by
simplifying. Having all one's reading
materialelectronically controlled hardly
seems like a simplification, and, at least
fornow,italsoaddsexpense. The port-
ability of a computer is more cumber-
some compared to the ease of toting
bookson a plane, at the beach or inbed.
Curling up with a lap top removes the
sensual pleasures of a book.
The touch of a book, though
seemingly inconsequential, provides
many tangible pleasures. Opening a
fresh book, or even an older one that
has not been opened for years, pro-
vides an aroma of excitement and
anticipation. Touching the book elic-
its other sensations that please the
mind .Even hearing the pages turn on
a quiet room providesaural pleasure,
while the annoying beeps of a com-
puter harshly irritate the ear. Being
able to flip through the dog-eared
pages of a favorite book reminds one
of pleasures aroused by the book.
Computer icons show no signs of
wear and thus provide no memo-
A book becomes one's own by
highlighting it, writing in it, and
generally marking it with ideas of
one's own as a physical way of claim-
ing mental ownership of the con-
tents. Reading on a screen, besides
straining the eye, provides no place
for one's own individuality. Com-
puters in general depersonalize ev-
erything they touch. Books need to
feel familiar and they will as long as
they are printed.
The printing press, unlike the
typewriter, will not be replaced by
the computer Multimedia will go
the way of video. It will increase in
popularity for the next few years,
then it will plateau. It will never
replace theprintedwordjust as video
has not replaced the cinema. Books
have been part of humankind for
over 2000 years. The book will sur-
vive. And if I am proven wrong I
hope that it is not within my lifetime.
Continued from page 8
linear narrative than a composi-
tion. Like most of the songs on
this release, it defies any conven-
tional definition.
The "Suite for Saxophone En-
semble" is a three part composi-
tion that comes in the middle of
the disc. It is a brilliant piece writ-
ten for six saxophones, but it
could easily be adapted to like
instruments that could achieve
the same range.
There are five piano solo
pieces on the album, each com-
posed and played by Lanier. The
piano is a favorite instrument of
Lanier and his virtuosity on it is
amazing. The compositions are
highly original, and he pushes
the limits of the instrument into
realms that may seem alien to
many. "The piano holds a special
place among instruments as the
musical bridge between the mys-
tical world of matter and the dis-
crete, mystery-less world of in-
formation says Lanier.
From someone with a back-
ground like Larder's it may seem
strange that the whole album
would be acoustic. He answers
the problem better than I could.
"I have only very rarely found as
profound a level of experience
inhigh tech music, for whatever
reason. I do have a theory
though. Computer-based instru-SS
ments must be built out of con-
cepts of what music is. In con
trast, a piano doesn't know whafr
a note is, it just vibrates wheif" '
struck He's right; there is arCJS
honesty to analog equipment��Z
and it would take someone irC
the field of high technology toCS
recognize this and make an al-SS
bum on that concept. It is great
and I highly recommend it.

Pirate miscues cost season opener at Duke
By Dave Pond
Assistant Sports Editor
On a warm Saturday night
in Durham, the Duke Blue Dev-
ils squeaked past the Pirates 13-
10 behind the performance of
placekicker Tom Cochran, who
booted a 28-yard game winner
with just over six minutes left,
giving the 'Devils the victory.
An enormous crowd of
36,420, over half decked out in
purple and gold, came out hours
early to fill the parking lots and
streets surrounding Wallace
Wade Stadium.
Throughout the entire
game, defense and fundamen-
tals (or lack of them) scripted
the outcome for both teams. Both
were plagued by turnovers as
the two quarterbacks, Duke's
Spence Fisher and ECU's
Marcus Crandell, were denied
control of the ball game by sti-
fling defenses.
ECU piled up 328 total
yards, but could only muster up
10 points for their efforts. The
'Devils, on the other hand, con-
verted their 253 total yards into 13
points, six off the foot of Cochran.
"At some point, for this pro-
gram to succeed,we're going to
have to play a close defensive game
and win it said ECU head coach
Steve Logan in a Monday press
Lack of fundamentals, often
an early-season problem, hurt both
teams. Crandell, who had played
just five quarters prior to
Saturday's game, was 17 of 39 for
182 yards with 3 interceptions. The
Pirates also fumbled four times.
The Duke defense did an ex-
cellent job in containing the explo-
sive Pirate backfield. Junior Smith,
who last year placed sixth in
NCAA Division I-A rushing, was
limited to just 69 yards on 20 car-
ries. Smith added 22 yards on two
receptions out of the Pirate
On special teams, Pirate kicker
Chad Holcomb's first attempt at
three points was blocked by Duke
standout Ray Farmer. Addition-
ally, in the fourth quarter, Brian
Williams' high snap over the head
of punter Matt Levine ultimately
led to Cochran's game-winning
field goal.
However, ECU receiver Ja-
son Nichols turned in a good per-
formance, collecting four recep-
tions for 41 yards. He also threw a
34-yard TD pass on and end-
around double reverse pass.
Duke's Fisher gave a below-
average performance as well. The
Blue Devil quarterback was 16 of
30 for 170 yards, but was picked
off three times. Robert Baldwin,
who rambled for 238 yards a week
ago, led a Blue Devil charge that
could only attain 83 rushing yards
against a solid Pirate "D
However, the Duke defend-
ers played exceptionally well for
the second week in a row. They
played hard-nosed football for
four solid quarters, seldom given
up the big play.
Both coaches, ECU's Logan
and Duke's Fred Goldsmith, each

Agassi tops U.S. Open field
(AP) � With the black cloth-
ing, the 5 o'clock shadow and an
earring, Andre Agassi will not be
mistaken for a knight in shining
But he could possibly be the
man who saves tennis.
In the year when the
Wimbledon final was criticized for
being all serve and almost no vol-
ley, when the biggest news in the
women's game was the off-court
travails of Jennifer Capriati and
Monica Seles, Andre Agassi
breathed some life into the sport.
Agassi won the U.S. Open with
pizzaz, with the daring and audac-
ity of a con man, and by bearing a
bigger man � Germany's Michael
Stich � at hiswn game: power.
The score was 6-1,7-6 (7-5), 7-5.
Stich's big serves were mea-
sured as high as 120 mph. Agassi
sent the ball back even quicker. And
when he found he could not go
around the huge wingspan of the 6-
foot-4 Stich, Agassi tried to send the
ball through his opponent.
The National Tennis Center
crowd of 21,063 loved it.
"I love playing Agassi said.
"And people were really excited.
Wehada fullstadium today,packed
the place, really enjoyed it. It was
just good for tennis.
Agassi became the first
unseeded player to win the crown
since Fred Stolle in 1966 and only
the third in the 114-year history of
the tournament.
It was Agassi's first U.S. Open
title and his second Grand Slam
tournament crown; he won

Late Sunday afternoon, a
muscle knot at the bottom of his rib
cage was already turning a faint

headed off in the general direction
of his collarbone. Yet those seemed

long-running lesson, the first install-

one but the bookies, and possibly
Young, had it pegged: Joe's current
team, the Kansas City Chiefs, beat
Joe's former team, theSanFrancisco
49ers, 24-17.
Any doubts about a different
outcome were laid to restduring the
game's opening drive, when Mon-
tana marched the Chiefs 67 yards
for a score. Along the way, he com-
pleted passes to four different re-
ceivers, but it was the final one that

cool, his craft and his imagination.

(AP) � Michael Jordan said
good-bve, probably to organized

farewell as only he could, mixing
his incomparable athletic skills
with a sense of drama.

planted a kiss on the red Bulls

Jordan, who admitted he'd
spent a few days practicing,

Welcome to Joyner Library.

peared, trees have been removed, transformers
relocated, earth moved, pilings drilled, and
concrete poured. All of these activities have
been pan of the initial stages of Phase I
construction of the expansion and renovation of
Joyner Library. The project winch began May
23, 1994, will take approximately four years to
Phase I. which is underway now. will bring
new space to Joyner Library This pan of the
project is targeted 'or completion by December
14, 1995 Once the contractors finish with this
phase there will be a three-month period during
which collections, services, and library faculty
and staff will be moved, relocated, and generally
turned around. Before that "move-in" period
arrives there will be unavoidable noise, dust, and
turmoil from time-to-time. Library faculty and
staff will do their best to publicize as far in
advance as possible when there will be
disruption, but there may times when we will
have little forewarning. Your patience and
understanding will be highly valued during this
first phase.
The remaining two phases of the project
will involve renovation of pans of the existing
library facility. The structural steel stacks�
otherwise known as the Last Wing Stacks�will
be- razed during Phase II A landscaped
pedestrian mall and new entrance to Joyner
Library will occupy the resulting space. At the
end of this phase there will be another three-

Finding pertinent literature I lav ing

finding literature on your topic. The
literature that you seek will usually fall into at
least one of four categories: books, journal and
magazine articles, newspaper articles, and
government documents. Other kinds of
Literature�mam quite rich in information�can
be obtained in the Library, for example. Special
Collections contains many primary sources such
as letters and diaries that would be of interest to
historians You will undoubtedly have to take-
divergent paths in looking lor these several
categories ol literature, though the paths often
parallel or even intersect one another Nonethe-
less, finding any of these kinds of literature

graphic citations (references) and then
determining location i (f the literature e ited
Looked at in anolhci way, vou will need to
answer the following broad questions: t 1 What
relevant literature exists? t) Where is the

literature and how can 1 locate it? That is to say,
does Joyner Library have the literature I want? If
so, where in the Library is the literature? If not.
how can I get the literature?
How to find books. The Initial big step
in finding books would be to get citations
(references) to titles related to your topic. One
way to start might be to copy titles of books
from the bibliographies given at the end of
background articles. These bibliographies
would more often than not be an insufficient
source of citations, however, since they would
probably not contain titles of the latest books.
The next step would then be searching Joyner
Library's online public catalog (Marquis) for
appropriate titles. (See "Using the ECU Library
Searching the online catalog for materials
having to do with a particular topic can often be
made efficient by using the subject headings
developed by the Library of Congress (LC subject
headings). (Subject headings should noi be used
for searching the catalog directly for titles of
books or the names of authors of books,
however.) P-fore commencing a search of the
online catalog, consult the Library of Congress
Subject Headings, which are kept at the
Reference Desk, to identify subject headings
relating to your topic. Identification of suitable
subject headings might be facilitated by using
key words from your research question.
Searching Joyner Library's online public
catalog can be done at one of the several
computer workstations located in the lobby, the
Reference Room, and the Government Docu-
ments area. To proceed, activate the catalog by
selecting the first item on the Main Menu shown
on the screen of the workstation. After the
catalog's selection screen has appeared, choose
one of the catalog's indexes according to the
item for which you wish to search: keywords,
titles, authors, or subject headings. Type in and
enter the appropriate words. After your search

retrieves a computer record of a book you wish
to read, you will want to do the following: To
begin with, write down (or copy to diskette,
then print out the information at a print station)
the author, title, date of publication, and.
especially, call number of the book. Secondly,
note whether or not that book circulates (the
Library does not allow reference books to be
checked out). If the book is allowed to
circulate, then note whether or not it has been
checked out. If the book has been checked out,
you may request that the Circulation Department
recall it. Last of all, should your search of the
online Library Catalog indicate that Joyner
Library does not have the book, consider
obtaining the book through interlibrary loan.
The second big step in finding books is
locating the book in the library. Unless the
book you want has been checked out to another
user, or has been temporarily removed from its
appointed place on a shelf, it should be located
on a shelf according to its call number. (Call
numbers reflect the subject matter of the books
and, for most of the items in Joyner Library, the
call numbers begin with letters, a feature of the
Library of Congress classification.) Most of the
books in Joyner Library are shelved in "stacks-
situated on the upper two floors of the West
Wing and on several levels of the East Wing.
Nonetheless, a good many are housed in the
Reference Room, Government Documents, the
North Carolina Collection, and the Curriculum
Collection. The catalog records for the books
found in these areas have abbreviations
specifying their locations in the Library (e.g Ref
for Reference) just above the call number.
To retrieve the book, examine the Quick
Find Guide, a list of locations of call numbers
available at the Circulation Desk, the Reference
Desk, or posted elsewhere in the Library. Note
in which stacks the call number of the book
will be found, then go to that area of shelving.
After you have located the book, examine it to
ascertain that it contains the information you
desire. In addition, browse the shelves near the
location of the book you sought, for by so doing
you may discover other, related books. Once
you have found the books that will serve your
purpose, either take them to the Circulation
Desk to be checked out, providing the books
circulate, or photocopy (or take handwritten
notes about) the information you need from the
How to find articles in books and
rnagffTinfi. Another path you will no doubt
take in doing library research Ls one leading to
articles in periodicals (journals and maga-
zines). The first step along this path consists in
finding citations (references) to suitable articles
One way to find citations would be to copy
selected references listed in the bibliographies of
background sources But you would not want
to stop your search at this point. Instead, you
should take a second step: using an index to
search for citations to articles. (Cautionary note:
Do DQl waste your time searching the online
catalog for titles of articles�titles of articles are
not included in the Catalog.)
Indexes may be either printed or on CD-
ROM. Printed indexes are slow to use, but
many are well organized, and in some cases
have no counterparts on CD-ROM. In contrast,
CD-ROM indexes usually expedite searching, yet
many cover shorter spans of time than their
printed versions. Most of the indexes in Joyner
Library are housed in the Reference Department,
but others are kept in Government Documents
and the North Carolina Collection. The majority
of the CD-ROM indexes are available on Joyner's
networked computer stations, but a number of
them must be run on computers separate from
the workstations on the Library's network, and
before being used on these computers the disks
must be borrowed from the Reference or
Government Documents desks.
Before searching an index you will want to
select an index that pertains to your topic.
Indexes vary in the breadth of information and
in the kinds of periodicals they cover. Most
indexes are specialized in that they cover one
area of knowledge in considerable depth (e.g
SocioFile for sociology); other indexes are
general in that they encompass diverse subjects,
yet cover none in detail (e.g Reader's Guide to
Periodical Literature). Finding the index that is
likely to contain the information you want is
important. General indexes may contain
citations related to your topic, even if that topic
seems specialized, but very specialized indexes
covering subjects quite different from the one
you chose would surely be dead ends in your
earch. Make sure that vou choose an appropri-
ate index.
Searching printed inoexes Start your
search of a printed index by using the key
words from your research question to identify
subject headings employed by the printed
index (not to be confused with Library of
Congress subject headings). Note the titles of
articles cited under the subject headings of the
index, 'write down the citations as shown in
the index. Retain your copies of these citations
for future reference.
�Searching CD-ROM indexes (See articles
on "Fast Ways" and "North Carolina Periodicals
Index) After selecting a suitable CD-ROM
index, devise a strategy for searching Type
in key words, or enter subject headings taken
from a printed thesaurus designed for the
database (if one is available) or from a comput-
erized index within the CD-ROM database. Start
the computer searching. Once the computer has
retrieved records in response to your requests,
scan the records to determine whether or not the
articles cited in them meet your needs. If so,
copy the records you select to a diskette, then
print copies of them on a separate printer.
Alternatively, if the computer you are using is
directly attached to a printer, print the records
then and there. (Note that Joyner Library's
networked workstations are not connected to
printers.) The ProQuest CD-ROM system allows
not only immediate printing of records, but, for
many citations, full text of the articles cited. (See
article on "Fast Ways)
Getting copies of articles After successful
retrieval of citations to articles you will want to
obtain copies of the articles The key to
getting a copy of an article is locating the journal
or magazine in which it was published. And
finding the whereabouts of the periodical
requires searching for its title. Two courses of
action present themselves: finding the title in
ProQuest and finding the title in Joyner Library's
online catalog.
First try obtaining a copy of the article
through ProQuest. Scan the list of full-text
periodicals indexed in ProQuest in order to find
out whether or not the journal or magazine
containing the article you want is included in the
list. (Copies of this list are in notebooks kept
near the computer workstations in the Reference
Room.) If a periodical you have identified
appears on this list, use ProQuest to print a copy
of the article you wish to read. If, on the
contrary, the title you want is not shown in the
list, then you will need to locate the periodical
on the shelves in the Library.
To get a copy of the original article from the
periodical itself the procedure is somewhat more
complicated Begin by searching the title index
of Library's online catalog for the title of the
periodical you want. (Again, do noi waste your
time searching the online catalog for titles of
articles.) If your search of the catalog reveals a
record of the title of the periodical, write
down its call number. If. on the contrary, your
search of the title index fails to show that the
Library has the periodical you need, then
consider the possibility of obtaining a copy of
the article through Joyner Library's Interlibrary
Services (i.e interlibrary loan). (See accompa-
nying article on Interlibrary Services.)
Use the call number, along with the
number of the volume and date of the article
that you previously wrote down or printed out.
to locate bound periodicals on the shelves
making up the stacks. Recent unbound issues of
journals and magazines are arranged in
alphabetical order in Current Periodicals; in
contrast, bound journals and magazines are
assigned a call number reflecting their subject
marten then placed in the stacks alongside
related books and other related periodicals.
Begin by consulting the Quick Find Guide for
Joyner Library in order to find the location of the
call number of the periodical you want. Go to
the stacks indicated by the list. If the periodical
is not where it ought to be. look for it on the
temporary shelves and study tables. If you can
find it in neither place report your difficulty to
the Circulation Desk. But if you find it, get the
periodical from the shelf, therverify that the
article you wish to see is actually in the volume
you have removed from the shelf. (Even
bibliographic citations in published books and
papers sometimes contain errors.) Photocopy
the article (or take notes about it). Last of all, jot
down the title, volume number, and date of the
periodical on the photocopy of the article, unless
that information has been printed on the article
by the publisher. Doing so will prevent
frustration later on. at the time you prepare the
bibliographic citations required for your research
paper, since the data you need for proper
citations will then be immediately available.
Otherwise, you may find yourself having to

repeat a difficult search a short time before your
paper is due�sometimes to no avail.
How to find articles in newspapers
The steps in a search for articles in newspapers
closely resemble the steps taken in finding
articles in journals and magazines. Yet big
differences stand out. Most bibliographic
indexes do not cover newspapers, and, as a rule,
only major newspapers having nationwide
distribution in the United States compile widely
available indexes of their issues. All the same,
Joyner Library does have a number of useful
newspaper indexes. One noteworthy index of
newspapers is the National Newspaper Index on
InfoTrac, a CD-ROM system in the Reference
Department. This index covers five major
newspapers published in the U.S The Christian
Science Monitor. The Los Angeles Times. The New
York Times. The Wall Street Journal, and The
Washington Post. Its span of coverage is roughly
the past three years. It can be searched by
keyword or subject heading. You also have the
option of searching a printed newspaper
index by subject heading. Joyner Library's
Reference Department holds printed indexes for
The Neu York Times. The Washington Post, The
Wall Street Journal. The London Times, and The
Raleigh News & Observer. Spans of coverage
vary among these printed indexes. The index for
The New York Times goes back to 1851.
Locating articles in newspapers differs
from locating articles in periodicals. To read
articles appearing in newspapers during the last
two months you have no practical recourse to
looking for the newspaper itself on the shelf in
Current Periodicals. For articles tasted through
InfoTrac or through printed newspaper indexes,
assume that the newspaper you want is available-
only on microfilm kept in the Microforms
Collection If you have difficulty locating the
newspaper you wish to read, ask a librarian in
Current Periodicals or Microforms for assistance.
How to find government documents
Joyner Library contains appreciable numbers of
government documenLs from three different
sources: the U.S. government, the North Carolina
state government, and. to a lesser degree, the
United Nations. The bulk of U.S. government
and I inited Nations documents are housed in the
Government Documents Department, whereas
nearly all the North Carolina state publications
are kept in the North Carolina Collection. Even
though most of the documents from the North
Carolina slate government�as well as many of
the U.S. government and United Nations
documents�housed in the Library can lx-
located through the Library's online catalog, the
majority of U.S. government documents can be
located only through some special indexes.
Joyner Library has numerous indexes of
government documents. The chief index for U.S.
government documents is MARCIYIi. a CD-MOM
database accessible through the Main Menu ot
ihe Library's workstations. Be aware, however,
that Joyner Library dxs not have all the
documents indexed in MAKCIYIi. Records of
documents indexed in MARCIYIi include a
unique identifying number known as a SUDOC
number (Superintendent of Documents
Dumber). Excepting the publications found in
the Library's online catalog, which usually bear
Library of Congress call numlx-rs, U.S. govern-
ment documents are identified by and shelved
according to their SUDOC number. (Examples of
SUDOC numbers are Y 1.17:97-171, marking a
publication of the U.S. Congress; and I 29.112:9,
identifying a publication of the National Park
Service. With this in mind, search MARCIVE by
subject, author or government agency, or title of
document. If your search retrieves records of
documents suitable to your topic, write down (or
copy to diskette) the SUDOC number, the title
and date of the document, and the agency
issuing the document. Use the SUDOC number
to locate the document it identifies. Expect to
find the document either on the shelves or in
microform in the Government DocumenLs
You may also desire to search a specialized
printed government dexuments index. Of the
many invaluable indexes, three that might be
mentioned are the CISAnnual, an index to
congressional publications and public laws;
American Statistics Index (available in the
Reference Department), an index to statistical
publications of the U.S. government; and
UNDOC, an index of United Nations Documents.
All of these sources, coupled with the MARCIXT.
and the online catalog, should help you gain
access to the wealth of information available in
public documents.
In summary, searching for and finding
literature pertaining to your research topic-
should be a challenging yet manageable process.
Before conducting a search, think about and
plan your course of action. Then follow the
general procedures outlined in the foregoing
paragraphs. These pathways should help you
acquire the books, articles, and other documents
from which you can extract, by means of critical
reading and comparison, the information you
will need for your paper. Having gotten the
information, spend some time organizing it, and
then write your paper
Hidden Resources
in the Media Collection
A great treasure exists in Joyner Library
that few people have been taking
advantage of�the Media Collection!
Until the spring of 1994, it was housed in closed
stacks, but it is now a browsable collection. It
has been separated from the Computer Lab
(Room BIO) and moved to Room B09. which is
down the hall from the Curriculum Collection.
Library patrons can "expect the unexpected"
when browsing this area of the library.
The Media Collection consists of video
recordings, laser disks, computer files, audio
cassettes, sound recordings, 16 mm films, slides,
kits, and filmstrips. Equipment to use all these
formats is also found adjacent to the collection
or in the Computer Lab This equipment includes
five VHS VCRs, a video recorder for Beta tapes, a
slide viewer and two laser disk players. Personal
computers, a closed caption decoder for videos,
and equipment for interactive computer disks
can lx- found in the Computer Lab.
In addition to other topics, the audio
portion of the collection offers cassettes on the
following: speeches and interviews with political
figures like Richard Nixon, Jesse Helms, and
Jimmy Carter; newsmakers such as Ralph Nader,
Dan Rather, and Malcolm X; scientists like B.F.
Skinner; authors such as Virgil Thompson. Toni
Morrison. Tillie Olsen, and Lillian Heliman.
There are cassettes about the Rorschach Test,
fitness and exercise, educational discipline and
learning styles, and readings of the works of
Shakespeare, John Keats, Lord Byron. John
Milton, William Blake, Samuel Coleridge, Sylvia
Plath. Percy Bysshe Shelley, W.B.Yeats and
Dylan Thomas.
A popular part of the AV (Audiovisual)
Collection is made up of a wide variety of videc
recordings. Besides videos of the BBC Time life
Taking advantage of an unexploited resource: Joyner Library s Media Collection.
complete plays of Shakespeare, the collection
includes a set of videos entitled Life Drawing
Video Workshops. Of expecial interest to the
visual artist, these videos deal with gesture,
contour, weight and mass, structure and
anatomical considerations, proportion and
foreshadowing, shading and drapery Dance
videos featuring such artists as Denishawn,
Mikhail Baryshnikov, Martha Graham, Mary
Wigman. Isadora Duncan, Dame Fonteyn, Rudolf
Nureyev and Hanya Holm make up a strong
portion of the AV Collection. Several complete
ballet performances in the collection are Swan
Lake. Romeo f Juliet and The Catherine Wheel.
The Long Search is a thiiteen-volume video set
aliout world religions. Prize-winning feature
films to be found in the collection include Jean
Renoirs Grand Illusion and Two Women. Other
feature films and foreign films are shelved in the
collection by the call number AudioVis PN1997.
A few of the foreign films are dubbed, but most
have subtitles. Many videos in the collection are
closed-captioned. Another video format, the
laser disk, is also represented in tfie collection by
at least four titles: Ihe Louvre. The 8H Vote. The
National Gallery of Art. and Salamandre.
Chateau of the Loire.
The Curriculum AV (Audiovisual) collection
is also kept in Room B09 of the library. This
collection contains videos of various educational
television programs, story telling sessions and
other teaching aids and demonstrations. One of
the most popular items in the Curriculum AV
collection has been the set of laser disks
Windous on Science. This set provides
excellent examples of various aspects of the
physical sciences, such as a strong thunderstorm,
for c lassroom students to observe. Valise Du
Hrancias des Affaires is a kit in the Curriculum
AV collection that includes extensive information
in French about many aspects of business and
advertising in France. The kit contains text-
Ixxiks. French phrase books, printed and
recorded advertisements, industrial annual
reports, magazines, baggage tags, newspapers,
information aliout the economics of France,
travel pamphlets and maps. Ihe use of energy in
agriculture in Frame, slides, booklets and maps
aliout ihe natural gas industry, a video about
Renault and other ephemera When the kil
arrived in the Cataloging Departmeni of the
library, it even included a piece of French candy!
Unfortunately, that had to lx- removed because ii
would attract insects to the collection The
Curriculum AV Reference Collection also contains
computer files presenting children's stories and
poetry to aid in ihe development of computer
skills in the young child. Scary Poems Tor Rotten
Kids is an interesting example

Joyner Library's Information System
If you haven't been to Joyner
Library in, say, ever, you would
not yet be aware of our new
microcomputer-based information
system. Few libraries in the nation
utilize the strengths of the microcom-
puter, choosing instead to provide
information from terminals which
possess far fewer capabilities than the
micrcxomputer. In Joyner Library,
both PCs and Macintoshes are available
to provide access to the library online
catalog, to CD-ROM databases like
ERIC, PsycLit, and Reader's Guide, and
to the world of the Internet with
applications like Gopher, Mosaic.
Fetch, and Cello.
The Joyner Library Information
System is based on a graphical inter-
face. This provides a more consistent
user-interface among the various
applications and it allows the user to
click on icons and on-screen buttons to
perform actions instead of typing
lengthy commands at the keyboard.
The most exciting aspect of the
microcomputer-based information
system is that a person can sit at any
workstation and search aU of Joyner
Library's computerized information
resources, which includes access to the
Internet. More about that later
While patrons have the capability
of printing what they find from CD-
ROM searches. Internet searches, and
online catalog searches, the informa-
tion must first be downloaded to
floppy disk. The floppy can then be
taken to the Reference Department
where the data can be printed at one
of the dedicated print workstations.

menu found on the PC Workstations.
Notice how all of the library informa-
tion resources are available from this
menu. The ECU Library Catalog is first
on the menu since it is used more than
any other resource in the library. All
of the library's networked CD-ROM
databases can be accessed through
menu item two. Item three is a text
file containing a description of the
library's CD-ROM databases. Item four
is your starting point to the world of

Behind the Scenes in Interlibrary Services
Interlibrary Services (ILS) lies off the beaten
track of the main floor of Joyner Library�
down in the basement in a long room of
concrete walls and exposed conduit. Travel
posters help to brighten the drabness and are
especiallv appropriate to the main functions of
the operation. During a day at work, the
members of the staff of ILS travel mainly
between computer workstations, but the books
they send out from Joyner Library travel to all
parts of the world. During the past academic-
year. ILS staff processed over 17,000 requests for
loans of library materials. The libraries of
Harvard University, the Smithsonian Institution,
and the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency all
borrowed from the collections of Joyner Library.
Materials were sent to all fifty states as well as to
Canada, France, Denmark, Spain. Sweden,
Germany, and the United Kingdom. The Joyner
book that has traveled the longest distance is
entitled Return to Tibet. Several years ago, it was
inadvertently shipped to China by the patron
who borrowed it from Joyner Library through the
Caldweil County Public Library in Lenoir, North
Carolina. The book was returned to Joyner
several weeks late with a "certification" in
Chinese that said, in translation, that "your book
traveled through Tibet to Lhasa, Xigaze. and
Gyantse before being returned to the United States
Most of the lending requests for Joyner are
accessed online through the OCLC Interlibrary
Loan System which began in July of 1979. As of
April 1994, almost 18,000 member libraries
throughout the world participate in OCLC
through their affiliated networks. Since 1979,
over fifty million requests for interlibrary loans
have been transacted on this system.
Interlibrary loan transactions obviously
always involve lenders and borrowers. On the
borrowing side of the operation, over 6,000
transactions were conducted on behalf of ECU
patrons during the past year. These were evenly
distributed between loans and photocopies. The
History Department made the largest number of
requests; the English Department ordered the
second highest number of items. A photocopied
article form France obtained for a professor in
ECU'S Foreign Language Department was the
borrowing request that came from the most
distant point. This article took weeks to arrive.
In contrast to thus event, the request responded
to most promptly was a faxed article for a
graduate student in political science. It was
ordered through a document delivery service
that had had the issue of the journal containing
the article electronically scanned into its
database. As a result, the a copy of the article
was faxed to Joyner exactly three minutes after
the request had been initiated by computer!
The interlibrary loan operation has grown
dramatically in the past fifteen years. It has also
been drastically changed by the enhanced
technology of computers, teiefacsimile, and
image scanning. However, it is also still often

dependent upon the cumbersomeness of U.S.
mail sent at library rate. The process of
interlibrary loan is thus located somewhere
between high tech and traditional methodology.
Technological advances in the information world
are so fast and so radical, however, that it is
difficult to predict the impact that technology
might have on ILS in the future.
The Hoover Collection
Some of the many newspapers and magazines in Joyner Library's unique
Hoover Collection on International Communism.
The Hoover Collection on International
Communism is a unique research collec-
tion containing a variety of resources
dealing with communism in general and com-
munism in the United States in particular Pub-
lished between 1918 and the present, these
resources include more than 4.200 monographic
titles (a monograph is defined as a learned
treatise on a single topic, roughly speaking, it is
a book); Ml serial titles (including journals.
magazines, and newspapers); and a significant
quantity of pamphlets, flyers, broadsides, and
other ephemeral materials. Also included art-
some twenty-eight cubic feet of personal papers
of the primarv donor who established the collec-
tion in 1970, along with eleven loose-leaf binders
containing a hand-written index by year of refer-
ences to communist activities in North Carolina.
Much of this collection was donated by Dr.
James C. Peele of Kinston, N.C who lectured
extensively throughout the Southeast on the
dangers of communism. Dr. Peele devoted an
enormous amount of time and energy to collect-
ing everything available that he thought pertained
to communism. He maintained standing orders
for relevant materials at antiquarian book stores
throughout the country and subscrilx-d to pub-
lications representing both the Far Left and the
Far Right. By so doing he accumulated a unique-
library of publications of such groups as the
Sparticist League and the Communist Parry, USA,
on the Left, and the John Birch Society and the
Christian Anti-Communism Crusade, on the
Right. Of particular interest are underground or
ephemeral publications, such as New Masses,
Battle Acts (. published by Women of Youth
Against War & Fascism), Black Liberation
Journal. Kane, and 7be Red Line, to name but a
few. Also, numerous underground publications
of the 1970s reflect the anti-war protest
movement of the Vietnam era.
In recent years substantial additions to the
collection have lieen donated by Mr. Arbor W.
Gray, a retired FBI agent residing in Washington.
N.C who accumulated a significant private
library of monographs on communism. Included
are more than 750 titles, many of which are
imprints from the 1920s and 1930s published in
Moscow. London, and the United States. Aside
from the large Peele and Gray donations, the
Hcxwer Collection continues to add materials
pertaining to all aspects of communism.
The Hoover Collection is located in the
Special Collections Department in Rxm 115.
Materials cannot lie checked out and must be
used in the Special Collections search room
between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m Monday through
Friday, or on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in
the summer and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the rest of the
year. The vast majority of the monographs have
been catalogued into Joyner Library's online
catalog (Marquis). Only a small portion of the
serials have been catalogued, however, and
researchers must use a paper copy title index to
access the serials as well as the newspapers.
This index is found in Special Collections. The
pamphlets, flyers and broadsides have not been
catalogued or indexed.

Services: The Circulation Reserve Department
saves users by circulating and maintaining the

providing an environment safe for research and
study. Broadly speaking, this Department
records and controls the locations of the Library's
books by electronic check-out and check-in and
by maintaining the stack.s�the orderly-
arrangement of books on the shelves. The
general colleaion consists of books, bound
journals, and certain other materials that one can
borrow for periods of several weeks. The
reserve collection includes books, reprints, and
other items that faculty expect to be in high
demand by students in their courses. These
items are "reserved" in that the Library limits
borrowing of materials on reserve to short
periods so as to ensure equal opportunity of
access to these items.
Circulation: All borrowing requires presenta-
tion of a valid ECU identification card. Material
from the general circulating collection Ls loaned
to students for 28 days, unless the item is
recalled by another user. If the item is not
recalled, the four-week lending period may be
extended by renewal. Items must be brought to
the Circulation Desk for check out or renewal.

these titles are bound together in lxxk form,

Services and Collection: The primary function
of the North Carolina Collection, a division of
loyner Library's Special Collections Department,
is to collect and provide access to printed
material pertaining to North Carolina and its
people. The material making up the Collection
includes books, maps, periodicals (journals and
magazines), as well as newspaper clippings and
other ephemeral items. It also includes state
documents in both paper and microfiche
formats. Books and periodicals are shelved in
rwo sections: NorCar Ref (North Carolina
Reference) and NoCar (North Carolina). State
documents on microfiche have the designated
location Joyner NC Documents (North Carolina
Documents). Some rare materials have the
location NoCar Rare (North Carolina Rare): these
items are kept in the office of the North Carolina
Collection. Newspaper clippings and similar
pieces are placed in a 'ertical file under selected
The North Carolina Collection offers
assistance with CD-ROM and online databases,
including the North Carolina Periodicals Index;
UNC (Log Into North Carolina), through which a
variety of statistics are available; NCADMIN, a
searchable listing of North Carolina state
government job vacancies; and North Carolina
Law on Disc; which provides access to statutes,
court cases, and the Administrative Code. The
North Carolina librarian will provide instruction
in use of the Collection (bibliographic instruc-
tion), in addition to in-depth assistance in
research involving the Collection. Patrons
should be aware that the Collection is useful not
only for current information, but also for
historical research.

they are designed to find and list printed sources
of information. ProQuest enables users to find
not only bibliographic information, but addition-
ally to print full text of many of the articles
whose citations are recovered by a search.
Some of the CD-ROM databases are not
bibliographic indexes, however. Compact
Disclosure, for example, allows a patron to
retrieve numerical information about the finances
of publicly owned corporations. Some cover
only a single area of research; others, such as
InfoTrac, have a very broad scope. One can
access most of the CD-ROM databases through
workstations on the Library's network; one can
use other CD-ROMs only at "stand-alone-
computers. Designed for searching by computer,
databases on CD-ROM can promptly and
efficiently provide both bibliographic and non-
bibliographic information requested by the user.
The Reference Desk is staffed by librarians
whose mission is giving guidance and instruction
to students, faculty, and staff who seek informa-
tion for research or other matters. Reference
librarians can help you in several ways. They
can assist you in using the online catalog; in
selecting, finding, and consulting reference
books lor specific information; and in selecting
and using printed indexes and CD-ROM
databases for references to articles in journals,
magazines, or newspapers. The Reference staff

Functions and Collection. What can the
Reference Department do for you? To answer
this question, you have to consider its three
major functions: finding sources of informa-
tion; providing basic or factual information; and
helping users learn how to find information
(including sources of information). To success-
fully perform these functions, the Reference
Department houses an extensive collection of
printed and electronic sources of information,
several computers for finding information, and
an electronic classroom (Room 104) for
providing instruction in locating infonnation. All
Telephone. 328-6677
Services: The function of the Microforms

contains unpublished letters, diaries, scrapbooks.
photographs, and a wide variety of other original
documentation primarily covering the period
between 1800 AD. and the present. The
materials emphasize North Carolina topics,
military affairs (particularly the U.S. Navy),
missionary life world-wide, and tobacco history.
The University Archives is responsible for
preserving the University's history by maintaining
its official records and providing for its historical,
administrative, legal and records management
Manuscript and archival materials do not
now appear in the Library's online catalog.
However, the Manuscript Collection holds
information on a vast array of topics and
researchers should be aware that finding aids are
available in the department.
The North Carolina Collection Is
comprised of books, pamphlets, government
documents, maps, microforms, and vertical file
materials pertaining to North Carolina and its
people. The Hoover Collection is a unique
research collection that contains books, journals,
newspapers, pamphlets, and other ephemeral
materials touching upon the topic of interna-
tional communism. The Rare Book Collection,
which is presently in an early stage of develop-
ment, contains rare and fragile publications on a
variety of topics.
Circulation: Materials in the Manuscript
Collection, University Archives. Hoover

and courses in children's literature.
The Media Resources Center provides the
following materials with appropriate equipment
for previewing: audio cassettes, film strips, laser
discs, school television programs, 16mm films,
slides, sound recordings, and videotapes.
Patrons can also find a variety of useful
materials in the Teaching Resources Center.
These materials include North Carolina Standard
Course of Study and Teacher Handbooks; North

The Music Library Media Center
The Musk Library provides an array of
items relating to the field of music.
Upon entering the Music Library, one
can partake of the more than 13.000 music-
related audio and audiovisual commercial
recordings along with several hundred non-
commercial School of Music programs. The
Music Library's media collection is comprised of
the following formats: compact discs, analog
cassette tapes,, LPs, laser discs,
and interactive compact discs. Playback

What is an interactive compact disc (ICD)?
Interactive compact discs are CDs which not
only play music, but also provide users with
visual images that correspond with the music.
The Music Library's ICD collection contains the
following titles: Igor Stravinsky's The Rile of
Spring. Johannes Brahms' A German Requiem.
Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 and
String Quartet No. 14. op. 131 � and Wolfgang
Amadeus Mozart's String Quartet in C Major
Once the ICD is placed in the
player, the user clicks on the
HyperCard stack that
corresponds with the ICD. A
menu appears which enables
the user to choose from a
variety of options, such as a
basic introduction to what the
disc has to offer or an in-depth
look at the composers
thoughts on each piece oi
Each ICD is loaded with a
tremendous amount ot
information which can prove
useful lo the advanced
musician as well as th student
studying music appreciation
For instance, in the K-D of
Johannes Brahms' A German
Requiem, a glossary not only
projects a written definition of
musical terms and phrases on the
screen, but also provides an audio
pronunciation of each word (Figure
1). Another extremely useful feature
is a sound clip index; this allows the
user to hear brief clips of music
which can be used to compare and
contrast a variety of musical
compositions (Figure 2). In
addition, historical information may
also be obtained from ICDs. As the
composition is playing, one can learn
what social, political, and historical
events were taking place during the
comxser's life (Figure 3.
The Music Library's video laser
disc collection is currently com-
prised of seventeen titles which
include Richard Wagner's Lohengrin.
Giuseppe Verdi's Don Carlo, and
Giacomo Puccini's La Boheme.
Laser discs are much like CDs
except that information is stored on
Ixith sides of the disc. A key
advantage the laser disc format has
over the traditional videocassette is
that one can immediately go to any
point in the work with the touch ol
a button. There is also never a need
to rewind a laser disc.
Everyone is encouraged lo take
advantage of the state ot the an
technology which is available within
the Music Library.

Students and faculty members who need
current information about North Carolina
will enjoy using the North Carolina
Periodicals index, a tool developed by the North
Carolina Collection and David Burke, systems
librarian. F.asy to use and broad in scope, the
index provides access to hundreds of articles in
over torty magazines and journals pertaining to
the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.
The index is available on Joyner Library's
new gopher, which is described elsewhere in
Welcome to Joyner Library. The index can be
opened by double-clicking with the mouse on
the North Carolina Periodicals Index component
of the gopher. Two choices will appear. By
double-clicking on ' About the North Carolina
Periodicals Index one can find information
concerning the scope and content of the
bibliographic information and learn how to
conduct a search. If the second option, 'North
(Carolina Periodicals Index (Search)" is chosen,
the user can search the database for articles.
Boolean operators, truncation, and the use
of quotation marks for phrase searching facilitate
retrieval of information Some examples follow.

After a list of articles appears on the screen,
it is an easy matter to choose and locate relevant

graphic information and an abstract, which helps
the user determine whether the article is of
potential interest. Bibliographic citations can be
downloaded (cop.ed) to a diskette. Current

shelves in the North Carolina Collection. Issues
for past years are located in the North Carolina
stacks. Call numtx-rs can be located in the
Library's online public access catalog (Marquis).
The Library hopes that undergraduate
students, especially, will find the North Carolina
Periodical Index useful for term papers. For
further information about the index or to arrange
a demonstration, call the North Carolina
Collection at 328-6601.

Fast Ways to Find Articles in Journals and Magazines
Perusing printed indexes to find biblio
graphic citations (references to authors
and titles) to articles in journals and
magazines can be rewarding, but more often
than not tedious and very time-consuming.
Fortunately, students and faculty can greatly
reduce the time and effort required to find such
items by using ProQuest, a computer-operated
system designed to search indexes on CD-ROMs
(compact disks). ProQuest occupies a unique
position among Joyner Library's many biblio-
graphic indexes on CD-ROM. Its uniqueness lies
in the fact that the ProQuest system enables you
not only to find citations to journal articles but to
print copies of whole articles once you have
found citations to them.
ProQuest offers you two different ways to
search for articles: first, by entering key words or
subject headings; secondly, by selecting an item
from a list of titles of journals and magazines. To
do the first kind of search, you type in (or select
from a list on the screen) the name of a concept,
author, or company (that is, a search term); start
the computer searching the database for journal
citations associated with the search term; look at
the journal citations retrieved by the search;
display the full-text (the "image") of a selected
article on the computer screen; and then print a
copy of that article on a laser printer. (It is
important to note that because of restrictions on
copyright not all articles found in a search can
be viewed on the screen and printed.)
The second way of searching ProQuest
databases is especially useful when you have
gotten citations to journals and magazines from a
printed index or another CD-ROM database. You
can perform the second kind of search by
pressing the FS function key to bring a list of
journals and magazines to the screen. Then you
can try to locate the title you want either by
pressing the cursor key (up-arrow or down-
arrow key) or by typing in the title. If the title of
the journal appears, you can then select it,
choose the issue of the journal containing the
article you want to read, display the journal's
table of contents, identify and choose the title of
the article, bring the image of the article to the
screen, and then print the article in its entirety.
Regardless of the method used for searching,
finding printable articles through ProQuest
unquestionably saves time and effort. You need
not locate the actual journal or magazine
containing the article or bother to photocopy the
article: you already have it in hand.
Excepting two workstations located
downstairs in Government Documents, most of
Joyner Library's ten ProQuest workstations arc-
kept in and managed by the Reference Depart-
ment. Upon entering the Reference Rcxim or
Government Documents area you will recognize
the workstations with their large, black-and-
white computer screens, pairs of printers, and
large steel cabinets or towers containing the CD-
ROM image disks. Try searching with ProQuesf.
In the event that you want guidance, a Reference
or Documents librarian will gladly show you
how the system works. One thing to know
before choosing a workstation for a search,
however, is that some workstations have been
set up for accessing a business database (ABU
INFORM), others for accessing a social science
database (Social Science Index), and still others
for accessing a general periodicals database.
Although signs should enable you to distinguish
the different ProQuest systems from one another,
you may want further guidance. In that case, a
librarian will assist you in identifying and
locating the workstation that suits your research
needs. Then too, whereas ProQuest indexes a
large array of journals and magazines for its
business, social science, and general periodicals
databases, it does not provide extensive
coverage of the physical and biological sciences,
education, fine arts, health sciences, history,
literature, or philosophy. Last of all, you may-
have to wait in a queue in order to use
ProQuest. ProQuest is extremely popular and
therefore heavily used by patrons�especially
near the end of the semester. To ensure equal
access to ProQuest, the Reference Department
encourages users to reserve a block of time for
using the system. You may reserve time on
ProQuest by signing up in a notebook kept at
the Reference Desk.
Doing research on a topic that is either not
covered by any of the ProQuest databases�or if
covered at all, then only very superficially�may
require use of other CD-ROM indexes. The
Reference Department includes another easily
used CD-ROM system�InfoTrac�that allows
immediate printing of bibliographic citations,
though not the text of articles. InfoTrac contains
two databases: the General Periodicals Index and
the National Newspaper Index Both indexes are
excellent sources for information on current
The Reference nd Government Documents
Departments offer many other CD-ROM
databases, most of which are computerized
bibliographic indexes. All effectively and
efficiently search for, find, and display citations
but lack the capacity for printing whole articles.
These computerized indexes range from
generalized to specialized in the subjects they
cover. Especially noteworthy CD-ROM databases
include MARCIVE, for U.S. Government
dixuments; ERIC, for ckxuments in education:
Reader's Guide Hi Periodical Literature, for
popular magazines; for publications in
psychology; MIA International Bibliography, for
language and literature, and General Science
Index for biological and physical sciences. Still
other CD-ROM indexes are available. The
Reference Department and Government
Dcxuments Department offer complete printed
lists of their CD-ROMs to users of the Library; in
addition, the user can read on-screen descrip-
tions of many of these CD-ROM databases at the
Joyner Library workstations by selecting item
number 3 from the Main Menu of the system.
(See the following paragraphs for information
about this system.)
Many of the CD-ROMs are accessible
through the workstations in the local area
network (LAN) of computers (known as the
Joyner Library Information System). Practically
speaking, the network allows several users to
simultaneously search the same CD-ROM
database from different computer workstations
Other CD-ROMs must be used on separate,
"stand-alone" computers. These CD-ROM disks
can be borrowed from the Reference and
Documents Desks.
The CD-ROMs on the local computer
network can be activated by selecting items from
a menu on a computer screen. Selection can be
done either by means of the compute's
keyboard or its mouse, though the mouse cannot
be used to search a CD-ROM database once it
has been activated. To turn on the CD-ROM
system you wish to search, follow this proce-
dure: (1) Bring to the computer screen the
workstation's Main Menu�the logical starting
point for any of the operations on the networked
computers. (2) Move the highlight to the item on
the menu you want by pressing its correspond-
ing number on the keyboard (number 2 in this
case, the "CD-ROM Database Menu by Subject"),
by pressing the appropriate cursor key (up-
arrow or down-arrow key), or by pointing and
clicking with the mouse. (3) Press the Enter key
or click the mouse twice to show the item you
chose, here the "CD-ROM Database Menu by
Subject (4) Scan the menu to identify the
subject heading most likely to include the CD-
ROM of your choice. (5) Repeat steps (2) and (3)
to view a menu of CD-ROMs related to the
subject heading you selected. (6) Note whether
or not the menu contains the CD-ROM you want
to search. (7) If the CD-ROM is not in the list,
press the escape key (Esc) to return to the
previous menu. (8) And finally, if the list

includes the CD-ROM you want, repeat seps (2)
and (3) to activate the CD-ROM database.
Owing to the fact that the interface (the
way in which the system's program interacts with
the user) varies among CD-ROM databases,
formulating a single procedure for using all the
CD-ROMs would be impractical. Even the
simple prtxess of getting out of a database is not
the same for all systems. For these reasons you
may find it necessary to get directions for
operating the system. You can get guidance
from on-screen help, attending librarians, guides
bound in notebooks placed near the worksta-
tions, or manuals kept at the Reference and
Documents desks.
The staffs of the Reference Department and
Government Documents Department encourage-
all students and faculty to use ProQuest and
other CD-ROM indexes. But the staff also
recognize that at present electronic indexes have
inherent limitations. Some subject areas are
covered by printed indexes but not by CD-ROM
indexes. Many of the CD-ROM indexes span
only the most recent years covered by printed
indexes. Some of the printed indexes are easier
to use than their new counterparts on CD-ROM.
For these reasons, you may want to turn to
printed indexes when your search of electronic-
databases proves faiitless. Another caveat is that
CD-ROM indexes may tempt the user to confuse
quantity of articles with quality of articles. Large
numbers of citations and articles collected and
used uncritically will not produce a research
paper of high quality. Getting and citing articles
does not constitute an end in itself. Suffice if to
say, finding articles is merely one of the early
steps in library research; it is not the same as
acquiring information and knowledge, the
genuine goal of all research.

Using the ECU Library Catalog
Elle Spedll Help
Wednesday August 3
Sometime or another, patrons of Joyner
Library will have occasion to use the ECU
library CatalogMarquis), an online
(computer-mediated) system for controlling and
finding most of the items housed in the Library.
No alternative finding device exists. The
online Library Catalog has almost com-
pletely replaced Joyner's old card catalog.
which has been rendered obsolete�the fate of
card catalogs in many other libraries�by a
combination of several technological and
economic factors. The card catalog, located at
the west end of the lobby of Joyner Library, has
teen much diminished in size, and can now be
used only for searching for titles in microform.
(See "Disappearance of Dewey and the Card
Catalog" in this insert.) Hence, some fundamen-
tal practical knowledge of the online ECU Library
Catalog will be essential to
doing research in Joyner
What is the ECU
Library Catalog? The
ECU Library Catalog (also
known as Marquis) is a
computerized system that
facilitates locating and
keeping track of mono-
graphs (i.e books), serial
titles (such as journals,
magazines, annuals, etc.).
audiovisual materials, and
still other items kept in
Joyner Library. ECU'S
Health Sciences Library,
and Elizabeth City State
University Library. From
the standpoint of the user, the Catalog has three
principal features. (1) it offers a graphical user
interface�in particular, a Windows operating
system environment; (2) it operates through the
Library's local area network (LAN); and (3) it is
accessible at networked computer workstations
that also allow users to run systems and
databases other than Marquis.
What is the Catalog used for? The F.Cl'
Library Catalog should be used for finding
catalog records of books, serial publications
(including periodicals such as journals and
magazines), audiovisual materials, and still other
items. The catalog record shows, among other
things, the item's title, author, date of
publication, and call number. A very general
but useful rule is this: Search the Catalog for
books, and for titles of journals or maga-
zines but do not search the Catalog for titles
of papers published in journals or maga-
zines. Titles of articles are not cataloged
For titles of articles, search instead a CD-ROM
database or printed index.
Where can the Catalog be used? The
workstations comprising the visible part ol the
Joyner Library Information System, which
includes the Library- Catalog, stand on counters
just inside the Reference Rcxun. in the lobby, and
downstairs in Government Documents and the
Curriculum Collection. Because the monitor
screens of the workstations are in color, they
cannot easily tx' confused with the machines at
the ProQuest stations, which stand nearby in
Reference and Government Documents, since
the screens of ProQuest are black and white.
How do you open the catalog? What you
should expect to see when you sit down in front
of a monitor at a workstation is the MAIN MENU
of the Joyner Library Information System. Being
at this menu is important because it is the screen
from which you open the Catalog. (In fact, the
MAIN MENL' is the logical starting point for all
the paths you can follow at the workstations.)
An image of the MAIN MENU, showing Item 1
highlighted, appears below in Figure 1

It often happens, however, that a user who
has preceded you at the workstation will not
have returned the system to the Main Menu, so
that what you see is something quite different
from what you expect and need. Sometimes
users fail to exit (get out of) a CD-ROM database,
an information screen, or an Internet session. In
this case, how do you display the Main Menu
This question has no single, simple answer. The
ways to exit a program (or database) are
unfortunately almost as numerous and varied as
the programs themselves. Just the same, the
following actions might lx helpful:
� Look at the screen You may see directions
for exiting, for displaying a list of commands,
or for getting on-screen help, any of which
might explain how to exit.
� If you find no on-screen information about
exiting, try pressing the ESCAPE (Esc) key.
Or, if you see a "button" in the upper left-
hand corner of the screen try pointing and
clicking on it with the mouse. This has the
desired effect in some systems. In fact, if the
screen you see is one of the layers of menus
for the CD-ROM databases, press the ESCAPE
(Esc) key until the Main Screen appears.
� II all else fails (or sooner if you prefer) and
you still cannot bring up the Main Menu, ask a
librarian tor assistance.
Once you have displayed the MAIN MENU, you
can open the Catalog. Proceed as follows:
� Highlight the first item on the MAIN MEN
(if it is not already highlighted): ECL: Library-
Catalog. Do this in one of three ways:
� Press numeral 1 on the computer's keyboard
� Or. press the cursor key (up-arrow key) until
the first item is highlighted.
� Or. position the mobile on-screen arrow on
the first item by moving the mouse. Then
click the left button on the mouse once.
� Press the ENTER key m rapidly double-
click' the left button of the mouse. After a
pause the first screen-�the search screen�of
the Catalog will appear (Figure 2, below).

You will note three prominent features on
the search screen. The largest of these features�

occupies the upper part ol the screen. On the
right side of this window is a mouse-operated
device called a scroll bar It is marked by
"buttons' with arrows. The menu enables you to

contents of each index are described below the

bottom of the screen is the third main feature, a
row of four labelled buttons. Pointing and
clicking on these buttons with the mouse will
cause the system to perform the operations
indicated by the labels.
Awareness of the contents of an index is a
vital ingredient of a successful search. Note
carefully the description of the index's contents
Searching the "Title Keyword Index" for the
name of an author would not retrieve the
records you need.
How do you search the Catalog?
Searching requires two basic actions: typing in
and entering search terms (words or codes)
for the system to seek; then manipulating
Martinis so that it will seek. find, and display
catalog records matching the search terms. You
can manipulate Marquis either by pointing and
clicking with the computer's mouse or by
pressing keys to give the system commands (In
fact, these methods are not mutually exclusive.

movements in any search.) In the directions that

� The Keyword index permits what is called
Boolean searching. In Boolean searching you
can use logical operators such as "or and
"and" to broaden or narrow the scope of the
search. For example, typing in rocks or
minerals should retrieve some books dealing
only with rocks and other lxoks dealing only
with minerals; typing in rocks and minerals
(Marquis lets you omit the "and so that
rocks minerals would suffice) should find
lxxks covering both rocks and minerals.
