Craft Publishing: A Proposal For A Programmatic Paradigm Shift In Academic Libraries, Sue Ann Gardner, Paul Royster, Linnea Fredrickson, Brian Rosenblum, L. Ada Emmett

Library Conference Presentations and Speeches

This presentation will include the parameters by which an effective, at-cost publishing program may be structured in academic libraries. With advances in technology, electronic storage, and connectivity, and contrary to the claim that such activities may result in a “race to the bottom,” libraries have proven to be natural entities within which to effect a paradigm change in scholarly publishing. Activities to date, however, have been more often than not underfunded and understaffed. Even among those that have been well supported, efforts across the community have been ad hoc. Within the context of recent initiatives and discussions, the authors will ...

The relationships between the persistence of working poor families and these changes in the job market are examined. The article concludes with a review of human resource development ...

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research from the College of Business

The hope in undertaking this study was to make a comparative evaluation of the myriad of federal legislative proposals introduced to provide some financial support for education. However,education is a tremendously broad area of study; furthermore, the span of time through which it has presented significant public issues is great.The need to render this study manageable,and at the same time to concentrate on issues of current importance and interest, led, therefore, to the exclusion of other topics from consideration. Consequently, the federal legislative proposals examined are only those which would have provided federal financial supportforprimaryandsecondary education in ...
