Lloyd C. Engelbrecht (born 1927) is Professor Emeritus of Art History at the University of Cincinnati. His article, “Wood, Plywood and Veneer, Cranbrook, the New Bauhaus and the W. P. A.: the Origins of the Eames Chair of 1946,” had its origins in a paper presented at a symposium, “Bauhaus, New Bauhaus, W. P. A.: Chairs for Mid-Century,” October 17, 1981, at the Mid-America Conference of the College Art Association, meeting in Milwaukee. The article was expanded and eventually completed in 1987, but it was never published. The author asked that his late wife, June-Marie F. Engelbrecht (1930-2009), be given credit for her immense amount of help with the research and writing of the article.
Lloyd C. Engelbrecht (born 1927) is Professor Emeritus of Art History at the University of Cincinnati. In collaboration with his late wife, June-Marie F. Engelbrecht (1930-2009), he has been researching, writing about and speaking about architect and designer Henry C. Trost (1860-1933) and his family firm of Trost & Trost.
On May 8, 2014, Lloyd Engelbrecht was invited to speak at the University of Texas at El Paso as part of a Trost symposium. The following is an excerpt from the official announcement of the symposium:
In celebration of Trost’s architectural legacy, UTEP Special Collections will host the “Trost Lecture Series” at 6 p.m. May 8  in the UTEP Library, Blumberg Auditorium, room 111.
The event will feature speakers Dr. Troy Ainsworth, executive director of El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro Trail Association (CARTA); Joe and Lanna Duncan, owners of the Trost-designed El Capitan Hotel in Van Horn, Texas and El Paisano Hotel in Marfa, Texas; and Dr. Lloyd Engelbrecht, co-author of Henry C. Trost: Architect of the Southwest.
A public exhibit featuring family photos, sketches, blueprints and photographs of the buildings Trost designed in El Paso and throughout the Southwest will be on display May 10 in the UTEP Library’s atrium on the third floor.
The lecture and exhibit were part of Trost Week, May 3-10, 2014, which was organized by the Texas Trost Society, a new nonprofit group that advocates for the preservation of Trost & Trost architecture.

A conversation between two friends who are not musicians and whose personal histories could hardly be more different. Through a series of conversations we explored those journeys, compared and contrasted our stories, and discussed just why this music affects us so deeply. We discussed specific musicians in terms of whether we liked, did not like, or were indifferent to their music, and why we either agreed or not. In these conversations we posed various questions to each other, hoping to discover and articulate certain essences that we might share. One thing we agreed upon up front is that we are neither musicians nor music critics. In fact, we’re not convinced that the field of music criticism is even a valid endeavor. Music description and personal reaction, however, is another matter. In our conversations we tried to describe our reactions to specific musicians and “schools” of music, without labeling the music as “good” or “lousy”. You will see that this doesn’t prevent us from disagreeing and disagreeing in spirited fashion, while always trying to focus on why our personal reaction is what it is.
Copyright and Digital Collections: A Data Driven Roadmap for Rights Statement SuccessThis presentation focuses on data driven research from both a survey and in person interviews to articulate a roadmap for digital collection managers to navigate copyright challenges stemming from the adoption of standardized rights statements and licenses. Barriers to implementation of the RightsStatements.org statements and Creative Commons licenses will be described, including methods to remove such objections to using the standardized rights statements. Additionally, the research will outline the workflows of institutions that have been successful in the application of RightsStatements.org statements, what barriers they met, and the methods that were used to overcome the challenges they faced.
There has been a lot of discussion and application of social media marketing in libraries. Not surprisingly, many libraries manage multiple social media accounts on top of traditional marketing strategies. However, not many libraries have developed a strategic digital marketing strategy that synthesizes areas such as video marketing, email marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), mobile marketing, and even outreach through traditional marketing channels. These additional digital marketing channels are equally as important as social media, yet play different roles in attracting, retaining, and engaging users. As users spend an increasing amount of time online searching, it is essential for them to identify the right library resources in a search engine, find the right event in their email and social media, and develop a sense of loyalty through valuable content generated in videos and blogs. Planning for channel overlap as well as users that a campaign may have missed is an essential part of this strategy. This paper is intended to provide an overview of the multi-channel digital marketing landscape and its application in libraries. Recommended actions are provided as well.
