A C R O S S C A M P U S COLLEGE OF BUSINESS Callahan named business dean Carolyn M. Callahan knows how the business world really operates, and as UofL's new dean of the College of Business, she wants to put that knowledge to good use. The frst African-American female to hold the post, Callahan is a staunch advocate for "real world" education — and has the credentials to prove it. She worked as an accountant for Pratt & Whitney, taught and administered programs at several universities and served on a Securities and Exchange Commission advisory panel responsible for establishing standards for fnancial reports. Callahan replaces Charles Moyer, business dean since 2005, who will take a one-year sabbatical and return as dean emeritus and fnance professor. During his tenure, the college's entrepreneurship program gained national recognition and earned a reputation as the top business school in Kentucky. "I hope we can all build on the college's high standards of student achievement, solid business partnerships and strong commitment to innovation," said Callahan, who left her job as director of the University of Memphis School of Accountancy to come to UofL. President James Ramsey called her a "natural choice" to lead the College of Business. "She's done a great job of bringing people together to share the same vision, whether they work in higher education, the community or the business world," he said. SCHOOL OF MUSIC Music therapy clinic opens for children and adults with special needs UofL is touching the lives of children and adults with special needs through an innovative program run by the School of Music. The music therapy program, the frst of its kind in Kentucky, was introduced in 2000. This fall, it will open a new clinic where faculty and students will use music therapy interventions to treat people with autism, developmental delay, physical, mental and emotional disorders, and learning disabilities. The clinic has received funding from the WHAS Crusade for Children and services will be provided on a sliding-scale fee structure based on the ability to pay.

UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES ASC puts the public in history Archives and Special Collections called on the public for help this year, and the public answered. Each day from their homes, workplaces and anywhere they access the Internet, people are logging onto the University Libraries Digital Collections site to help transcribe "The Louisville Leader," a historic African American newspaper. The paper covered the black community's news, social activities and sporting events between 1917 and 1950. "The Louisville Leader" is a popular resource for researchers, said ASC Director Carrie Daniels. ASC scanned its microflmed copies and hoped to make a keyword-searchable version available through Digital Collections. What archivists found, however, is that optical character recognition software was not capable of accurately identifying the faded and misaligned type well enough to generate keywords. This was a task only humans could perform. When ASC put out the call for help in February, the public responded immediately. "We're getting submissions every day but it's a long-term project, so we defnitely still need help," said Rachel Howard, digital initiatives librarian. To help, go to the project page at uofl.me/lib-LouisvilleLeader, read the instructions, choose an article to transcribe and start typing. SUMMER UOFL MAGAZINE| 4 5
