Achieving The Holy Grail Of Electronic Resource Management With Automated Holdings Feeds, Antje Mays, Jody Stroh, Jozef Paulik Nov 2016

Achieving The Holy Grail Of Electronic Resource Management With Automated Holdings Feeds, Antje Mays, Jody Stroh, Jozef Paulik

Antje Mays

Libraries face many challenges with maintaining electronic resource holdings that are constantly changing. In this session, attendees will learn how libraries, a content provider and a knowledge base are working together to ensure accurate, up-to-date holdings via automated, institution-specific feeds that save libraries both time and frustration.

Library panelists will share their e-resource challenges and lessons learned followed by publisher/partner perspectives outlining what it takes to create and share these feeds. 
Be sure to join the conversation that follows and learn how automated holdings maintenance is a win-win-win for everybody!


The Future Of National And International Security On The Internet, Maurice Dawson, Marwan Omar, Jonathan Abramson, Dustin Bessette Dec 2013

The Future Of National And International Security On The Internet, Maurice Dawson, Marwan Omar, Jonathan Abramson, Dustin Bessette

Maurice Dawson

Hyperconnectivity is a growing trend that is driving cyber security experts to develop new security architectures for multiple platforms such as mobile devices, laptops, and even wearable displays. The futures of national and international security rely on complex countermeasures to ensure that a proper security posture is maintained during this state of hyperconnectivity. To protect these systems from exploitation of vulnerabilities it is essential to understand current and future threats to include the laws that drive their need to be secured. Examined within this chapter are the potential security-related threats with the use of social media, mobile devices, virtual worlds ...


Construction Of The Next Generation Of Energy Efficient Light Boxes - Sponsored By Bayer Environmental Science, Gregory Keith Bartley Jr. Sep 2011

Construction Of The Next Generation Of Energy Efficient Light Boxes - Sponsored By Bayer Environmental Science, Gregory Keith Bartley Jr.

Gregory Keith Bartley Jr.

This short presentation includes an overview of features that went into constructing a new type of light box technology utilizing low-power usage LEDs and Low Density flexible Polymers. This light box was constructed for digital image analysis of plant health and ground cover using a Canon Powershot G12 camera and Sigma Scan Digital Image Analysis Software.

Constructing New Technology: The Crop Circle Gps Cart In Pictures, Gregory Bartley, Brandon Horvath

The crop circle spectrometer represents a breakthrough in unbiased sensor data. Unlike traditional passive sensors, it pulses light at a speed of 20,000 times per second. With this comes the ability of these filters to discern reflectance measurements from that of natural sunlight, allowing it to be used in environments of sun, shade, and even darkness. From these various reflectance values at different wavelengths, we get measurements of plant health known as vegetation indices. And different vegetation indices can tell us different things about the health of a plant. Couple this with the recent advances in GPS technology, we ...


Construction Of A Mobile Spectrophotometer For Mapping Plant Health: Combining Crop Circle™ And Gps Technology, Gregory Keith Bartley Jr., Brandon J. Horvath Sep 2011

Construction Of A Mobile Spectrophotometer For Mapping Plant Health: Combining Crop Circle™ And Gps Technology, Gregory Keith Bartley Jr., Brandon J. Horvath

Gregory Keith Bartley Jr.

With the introduction of GPS technology, came the ability to produce maps of plant cover and health over large areas. By correlating the reflectance values of a plant with its respective GPS coordinates, we can form a bird’s eye view of relative plant health using different colors. The commercialization of high precision GPS receivers has allowed researchers to plot these maps with increased accuracy, limiting error to less than 1 inch.


Apple Ipad Cart, Gregory Keith Bartley Jr., Brandon J. Horvath Aug 2011

Apple Ipad Cart, Gregory Keith Bartley Jr., Brandon J. Horvath

Gregory Keith Bartley Jr.

Utilizing a Pelican Accessories Case, I was able to construct a power efficient, mobile iPad charging station cart capable of safely charging and transporting up to 10 iPads and 10 iPad Keyboards with additional compartments to accommodate any additional cords and/or devices. The introduction of WiFi Sync in Apple's iOS 5 Update allowed me to more efficiently compartmentalize any cords from being exposed. Compared to commercially-available iPad Sync and Cart Charging Systems which charge $1000+, this unit cost me around $100. It also uses far less power, due to no longer needing a powered USB hub network in ...


Business Model Requirements And Challenges In The Mobile Telecommunication Sector, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, David Avison Jan 2011

Business Model Requirements And Challenges In The Mobile Telecommunication Sector, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, David Avison

Dr. Mutaz M. Al-Debei

The telecommunications business is undergoing a critical revolution, driven by innovative technologies, globalization and deregulation. Cellular networks and telecommunications bring radical changes to the way telecom businesses are conducted. Globalization, on the other hand, is tearing down legacy barriers and forcing monopolistic national carriers to compete internationally. Moreover, the noticeable progress of many countries towards deregulation coupled with liberalization is significantly increasing telecom market power and allowing severe competition. The implications of this transition have changed the business rules of the telecom industry. In addition, entrants into the cellular industry have had severe difficulties due to inexistent or weak business ...
