To Director Mennel and Associate Director Acord, We are applying to the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere’s library enhancement grant for a total of $5,000 to fund the expansion of the Smathers Libraries’ collection. The Smathers Libraries currently house a modest collection with some significant gaps, especially in core serials from Routledge, Oxford, and Columbia. In some cases, like the Murty Classical Library of from Harvard University Press, the library is missing the entire collection. Because Hindu Traditions is one of five major fields of study and expertise in the Religion Department, it is crucial that the collection be updated. The Religion Department also teaches courses on for undergraduates on a regular basis, so the texts would be used for their papers and course work. There is a growing awareness of the Indian diaspora at the University of Florida and Alachua County area; this collection would be useful to them as they seek a general education in their history. A stronger collection is fundamental for the Hindu Traditions track, but it will also benefit our Buddhism, Global Islam, Religion and Nature, and Religion in the Americas tracks. We have invited faculty in these areas to suggest relevant texts since has played a role in these other areas, and the collection will be useful to these faculty and students. We have about 15 faculty members (two are in joint positions) in the Religion Department, 24 graduate students, about 40 undergraduate students. We actively collaborate with several departments, institutes, and centers across the campus including Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, the Harn Museum of Art, Architecture, and the Water Institute. Our undergraduate and graduate students come from many parts of the world and have a wide spectrum of research interests. We have large numbers of heritage students enrolled in undergraduate classes. Our graduate program in Hinduism spans both textual studies and global Hindu traditions, especially as expressed through rituals, performing arts, and architecture. Our collection has not kept pace with these interests and it would be of immense help if we were to have these foundational volumes. The collection also impacts the greater University of Florida campus through other units that support the study of Hindu traditions, especially the Center for the Study of Hindu Traditions (CHiTra). Other institutes and organizations such as the University of Florida Center for Health and , the Indian Student Association (ISA), the Indian Graduate Students Association (IGSA), University of Florida Mindfulness, and the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art also have members who consult our books on Hinduism. Some texts may benefit other areas of study on campus; for example, the books on may interest members of the Philosophy Department. The Gainesville community can also benefit since it has a large population that is Hindu or interested in Hindu culture. The Hare community of Alachua County is the largest in , and volunteers from Krishna House, located only a few blocks from Library West, visit campus frequently. The India Cultural and Education Center (ICEC) offers educational and cultural programming for the Gainesville community, and Asha UFlorida hosts community events to fund educational projects. If awarded this grant, we will continue work with the Religion Librarian Megan Daly to acquire the materials on the attached wish list and advertise the new collection to the university and community through personal contacts across these various groups, through e-mail announcement, and with a book display in the Library West second floor exhibit space. The nearest distinguished Hindu Studies collection is located at Emory University. Others reside at top universities like the University of Virginia, University of Texas, University of California Berkeley and Santa Barbara, and Harvard University. As Florida’s flagship university, and with a growing program in Hindu Studies and related areas of Asian Studies, the University of Florida should have a Hindu Studies collection that can compete with these schools and contribute to the success of the Religion Department and community. Undoubtedly the collection funded by this grant will also support those working on Indian religions at other universities in Tallahassee, Tampa, Orlando, and Miami. With this grant, our team will update our collection of primary sources, critical editions, serials, and research monographs to help our programs and university on its way to greater success and higher status.
