The convergences of Web-ready mobile tools and applications have changed how we interact with our physical and virtual environments. Web-ready mobile devices (particularly smartphones, but tablets and Wi-Fi ready MP3 players are also on the increase) have supplanted the traditional desktop computer. According to IDC Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, a February 7, 2011, press release noted that “Smartphone manufacturers shipped 100.9 million devices in the fourth quarter of 2010...PC manufacturers shipped 92.1 million units” (IDC).

Open Source Software Libraries, Sherry Lochhaas, Melissa Moore
Open source software is not something to be afraid of! It's software that you can modify, fix, add to, and distribute to others. Benefits are numerous, including having the ability to create good software that works for you and your library, all while paying a fraction of the cost that you might spend on proprietary software. This website introduces librarians to using open source software and provides tips for implementing and evaluating your transition, ideas for funding, and suggestions for open source software to use in your library.

Medieval And Renaissance Book Production,
Utah State University
Medieval And Renaissance Book Production, Richard W. Clement
Library Faculty & Staff Publications
There is a widely held, yet erroneous, belief that the invention of the book was concurrent with the invention of printing. Somehow it is assumed that the act of printing--that is producing a book by mechanical means--endows the finished product with that essence that embodies a book. After all, the hand-produced book is called a manuscript, not simply a book, and early-printed books are called incunabula, books in their infancy. We are accustomed to think of the periods of manuscripts and printed books as distinct. Traditionally a scholar working in one of these fields has known little of the other ...

The Effects Of Product Information On Consumer Attitudes And Purchase Intentions Of Fashion Products Made Of Fur, Leather, And Wool, Minjung Lee
Graduate Theses and Dissertations
The purpose of this study was to examine how product information affects consumer attitudes, subjective norms, and purchase intentions of fashion goods made of fur, leather, and wool. Based on the theory of reasoned action (Ajzen & Fishbein, 1980) and elaboration likelihood model (Petty & Cacioppo, 1986), the effects of two types of information, one-sided and two-sided, were examined. An experiment was planned and conducted. Different types of information were presented to research participants and data regarding their attitudes, subjective norms, and purchase intentions were collected using a web-based survey. A total of 31,001 undergraduate and graduate students were invited to ...

Social Technologies And Informal Knowledge Sharing Within And Across Organizations, Jarrahi Mohammad Hosein
School of Information Studies: Dissertations
This doctoral dissertation is focused on both empirical and conceptual contributions relative to the roles social technologies play in informal knowledge sharing practices, both within and across organizations.

The rapid uptake of social technologies, combined with growing interest in their broader social implications, raises pertinent questions about ...
