Jerry Anne Dickel

The American Jewish Immigration Collection is an archival collection of over 300 items, mostly correspondence, with reports of various kinds, some pamphlets, articles or essays, mainly from the archives of Louis Levy and Joseph Erhlich.

Scholarly Communication Institutions: Transforming Scholarship With History, Shawn Martin Oct 2015

Scholarly Communication Institutions: Transforming Scholarship With History, Shawn Martin

Shawn Martin

The current scholarly communication system has developed over centuries; yet, more recently it has been breaking down.  Different disciplines have diagnosed this as an economic breakdown between libraries and publishers, a social failure among academics, and as a technological disruption.  Of course, all of these answers are true to some degree.  By combining approaches from information science and history, it may be possible to understand scholarly communication system more clearly.  Historians such as Steven Shapin in A Social History of Truth (1994) have suggested that academic dialogue rests on “trust.”  As the number of people participating became larger, that trust ...

Disillusionment In Afghanistan. A Five Country Study Into Plots By Soldier-Authors, Esmeralda Kleinreesink Jun 2012

Disillusionment In Afghanistan. A Five Country Study Into Plots By Soldier-Authors, Esmeralda Kleinreesink

Esmeralda Kleinreesink

It is often said that the majority of stories written by war veterans in the 20th century are disillusionment plots. But is that still the case in the 21st century? Are young men and women still going into, for example, Afghanistan with high ideals that are shattered during their deployment, and write books about their disillusionment? In this paper, the preliminary results are presented from a study into military books. Based on Friedman’s plot theory, this study compares all 54 autobiographical books published between 2001 and 2010 by Afghanistan veterans in three different languages from five different countries (the ...


The Role Of Information Literacy In Service Learning Courses: A Case Study And Best Practices, Christopher A. Sweet May 2012

The Role Of Information Literacy In Service Learning Courses: A Case Study And Best Practices, Christopher A. Sweet

Christopher A. Sweet

Service Learning is a quickly growing movement within higher education that empowers students to utilize classroom knowledge to solve a problem or effect a change within their local community. Information Literacy is critical for getting students to understand the “why” and “how” that should ground all service learning projects.

This presentation will begin with an overview of the service learning movement. Next, I will present a case study of my experiences as an embedded librarian in an Environmental Studies Senior Seminar. The presentation will conclude with a summary of emerging best practices for incorporating information literacy into service learning courses.
