Description December I,1955 All Nordica Ski Boots Are GUARANTEED HAND-MADE By If&m Master Craffsmen New Director Named For University Libraries Sarah C. Michalak, who has been assistant director of libraries at the University of Washington since 1988, has been named director of the Marriott Library at the University of Utah. Michalak replaces Roger K. Hanson, who retired in June after being director of the U. libraries since 1973. Michalak takes over the library in the middle of a $34 million expansion, which is scheduled for completion in the fall of 1996. She just completed overseeing a $38 million renovation of the Allen Library at the University of Washington. There she also coordinated the library's participation in the university's $250 million capital campaign, helping generate more than $12 million in gifts. At the U., her major concerns along with bolstering financial support, will be to map out where the library is headed from the standpoint of information resources, service, and technology. Access to information, as well as continuing the conversion to automation of library holdings, will also be key areas she plans to address. The Marriott houses more than 2 million volumes, 14,500 journal titles, and almost 3 million microforms. - Bob Staab Ski Archives Receives Major Film Collection The University of Utah Ski Archives' film and video collection, which has been growing steadily in recent years, received a major boost this summer. In an effort to preserve a significant amount of aging film, Alan Engen, Director of the Ski School at Alta, sought the assistance of Bob Autry, an Alta Ski Lifts employee and former employee of Mammoth Mountain. "Bob had the connections and the expertise to help us accomplish what needed to be done," Engen said. Through his association with Sierra Productions, a California film production company, Bob Autry was able to secure significant contributions of studio and production time from Sierra Productions. With a commitment of support from Alta Ski Lifts Company, the Alta Historical Society, and the Utah Ski Archives, Alan Engen and Bob Autry, headed for Southern California in July with over 200 pounds of vintage ski footage from Alan and Alf Engen's private collection, as well as film from Alta Ski Lifts Company. Alan and Bob, working long days during the course of one week, were able to transfer over 10,000 feet of 16 mm film to video. When asked about this effort Alan said "this represents a signif- icant step in preserving ski history. This is the largest collection of old ski film to be transferred to video in this area." In addition to a great research tool, this video preservation effort, creates "a resource that can be drawn upon to produce ski film presentations," Alan said. And that is exactly what Alan Engen has done. Part of the project included a brief but painstaking effort to produce a short 18 minute video on the life of Alan's father, ski legend Alf Engen. According to Alan, the video was produced for two reasons: one was to provide an example of what could be done from a film collection of this size; the other was to support the ongoing cause of the Alf Engen Ski Museum. One hundred limited editions of the video "Alf Engen, American Ski Legend" have been signed and numbered by Alf Engen, and will be used as gifts to major donors to the Alf Engen Ski Museum and its development. Master copies of all of the film will be stored at Sierra Productions' studios in California. The orig- inal 16 mm film, owned by Alan and Alf Engen, is being donated to the Marriott Library Utah Ski Archives. The original film footage will perma- nently reside as part of the Utah Ski Archives film collection. Of the one hundred limited editions of the video, edition two was also donated to the Utah Ski Archives by the Engen family. The Utah Ski Archives enthusiastically supports this effort and gratefully acknowledges the receipt of this substantial film collection. The Utah Ski Archives is anxious to receive film and film collections, regardless of size. If you have old film, photographs, or slides, call Joe Arave, 581- 8864, and think about donating them to the Ski Archives. - Joe Arave December 1,1955 Free Ski Cl
