Refreshing Your Sierra System, Leigh Ann Duncan Apr 2020

Refreshing Your Sierra System, Leigh Ann Duncan

University Libraries' Staff Publications

Although our Sierra system runs well day to day, looking closely at usage trends helped us determine what areas needed extra attention and where we could improve customer service (new circulation notices!). For our mature system, examining the major tables that run Sierra's circulation system—branches, item types, patron types, notice texts—was particularly important as our Library use has changed over the years. This program will share strategies for examining and streamlining system tables, and implementing circulation notices using print templates.


Measuring Nomophobia And Exploration Of Consequences And Comorbidities, Sarah Marie Fryman, William L. Romine Apr 2020

Measuring Nomophobia And Exploration Of Consequences And Comorbidities, Sarah Marie Fryman, William L. Romine

Symposium of Student Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Materials

Excessive use of smartphones has coined the term “Nomophobia”, or fear of not being able to use your smartphone. For many, these devices have become an extension of ourselves, which raises hesitation on whether or not society has become addicted to smartphones. Specific diagnostic criteria for smartphone addiction have yet to be settled, and even appropriate to use the word “addiction” when describing excessive usage of smartphones is controversial.

We therefore explore utilize current measures to explore the symptoms of nomophobia and their hierarchy, as well as comorbidities including social anxiety, self-esteem, distracted driving and sleep quality. A total of ...

Academic Success 101: Strategies For Promoting A Resilient Self-Concept In Women Doctoral Students, Gabrielle Armer, Latrelle D. Jackson, Susan George

Symposium of Student Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Materials

Although female graduate psychology students outnumber male students three to one (Fowler, et. al., 2018), women are still likely to experience more challenges than men during their doctoral programs (Bireda, 2015). Women doctoral students are faced with the challenges of learning how to integrate their personal identities such as partner, mother, or caregiver with their emerging identity of academician (Rockinson-Szapkiw et al., 2017). Women doctoral students often describe these conflicting roles as altering their overall self-concept, which often leads to feelings of loss, mistrust, and disconnect (Balatti & Whitehouse, 2001). This poster highlights ways in which self-concept in women may impact ...


Anthrax Event Detection Using Twitter: Analysis Of Unigram And Bigrams For Relevant Vs Non-Relevant Tweets, Michele Miller, William L. Romine Apr 2020

Anthrax Event Detection Using Twitter: Analysis Of Unigram And Bigrams For Relevant Vs Non-Relevant Tweets, Michele Miller, William L. Romine

Symposium of Student Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Materials

Due to the lack of anthrax attacks in recent times, researchers have used naturally occurring events to assess their anthrax detection models, but these provide little information on how the models will perform in the context of an unannounced, intentional release of a bioterrorism agent, like anthrax. Therefore, it is important to develop a detection model using data surrounding real anthrax scares and events.We develop a methodology to detect an anthrax-related event on Twitter. We describe a process to separate the tweets concerning anthrax-related events from those not related so experts can address misconceptions and fears in real-time.Most ...

Identifying Easy Indicators Of Dementia, Swati Padhee, Tanvi Banerjee, Valerie L. Shalin, Krishnaprasad Thirunarayan

Symposium of Student Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Materials

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a degenerative chronic neurodegenerative disease that affects millions of people and whose care costs billions of dollars. There is growing evidence that variations in speech and language may be early indicators of dementia. One of the most initial symptoms of dementia is speech impairment, including difficulty in finding words and changes to the grammatical structure. These early indicators can be detected by having the patients perform a picture description task, such as the Cookie Theft task from the Boston Diagnostic Aphasia Examination. However, much of the state-of-the-art NLP for dementia has been limited due to ...


The Relationship Between Object-Based Judgments And Judgments Of Relative Direction As Measures Of Spatial Memory, Zachary Carpenter, Tressa Molinar, Herbert A. Colle Apr 2020

The Relationship Between Object-Based Judgments And Judgments Of Relative Direction As Measures Of Spatial Memory, Zachary Carpenter, Tressa Molinar, Herbert A. Colle

Symposium of Student Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Materials

There are frequently two different conceptions used to describe what people store in their memory for environmental layouts. The SOLAR (Straight-Line Object-Based, Local Angular Relations) model and the quasi-Euclidean Framework model. The Framework model assumes that people store coordinated points in their layout of spatial memory. This grid-like representation of points is then used to remember layouts. A common, natural judgment that is used within the Framework model are called judgments of relative direction (JRDs). The SOLAR model, on the other hand, assumes people remember and store information about 3D objects, so characteristics such as fronts can be used as ...

The Impact Of Pet Therapy On Pediatric Physical And Psychological Health, Kayla Redman, Brenna Smith

Lake Campus Research Symposium Abstracts and Posters

Pet therapy or animal-assisted therapy (AAT) is categorized as a cost-effective alternative treatment method for hospitalized pediatric patients. Recent reports of AAT have been shown to decrease anxiety and depression, boost communication skills, and soothe the fears of the family and patient. This integrated approach has positively impacted patients’ psychological health, along with their physical health. The presence of an animal in the healthcare setting has proven to lower blood pressure and heart rate, as well as decrease pain. Pet therapy has also demonstrated a positive influence in children with mental illnesses such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and mental retardation ...


Impact Of Technology Presence On Late Adolescent/Emerging Adult Social Development Research Proposal, Tiffany Clark Apr 2020

Impact Of Technology Presence On Late Adolescent/Emerging Adult Social Development Research Proposal, Tiffany Clark

Lake Campus Research Symposium Abstracts and Posters

Technology is all around us and is utilized often in a person’s daily routine, whether it’s a cellphone, a computer, a smart watch, or any other kind of technology. There are many benefits to having access to technology such as being able to build stronger relationships, having a better way to learn, or even more effective transactions (Baron & Gomez, 2013). Having access to a public computer can have a positive impact on community development because this leads to feelings of empowerment and development of social capital, which are the foundations for a strong community (Baron & Gomez, 2013). Since the adolescent/emerging adult age span is a crucial tie for social development , it make s for a n appropriate age range to study when looking at the influence of SES on technology availability and whether or not this will inhibit social development . With the amount of technology that i s available to the public today , it’ s important to know if the re should be more focus on finding a way to make technology more widely accessible for those that may not be able to afford it otherwise; especially if this mean s they will have more positive social development . This is what the current study plans to examine. This study plans to examine the social development of adolescents and emerging adults based on their daily technology usage ...

Effects Of Opinions On Personal Mental Illness Perception, Lisa M. Greene

Lake Campus Research Symposium Abstracts and Posters

The purpose of this proposed study is to evaluate the effect of outsiders’ opinions on individual perceptions of personal mental illness. How treatment is addressed is affected by the individual’s perception of the diagnosis, which can be affected by outside opinions. Thirty clients of a mental health clinic will be interviewed before their first and second therapy sessions; before the second session, each participant will be exposed to either a positive, neutral, or negative opinion regarding mental illness. The change in their interview answers will determine how influential they perceived the opinions to be. The survey will identify the ...

A Research Proposal: Retirement: When, Why, And Returning To Work, Chelsea M. Lautzenheiser

Lake Campus Research Symposium Abstracts and Posters

Retirement is a personal decision based on when and why a person is retiring. The average length of life has begun to rise due to medical advances, more education, financial stability, and an overall better way of living. Due to these factors, may the average age of retirement be increasing as well? A survey given to local assisted living centers and work centers may help answer this question. Recently, it has been noted that more elderly are heading back to work after their retirement. Using our survey, we hope to find out if the same factors determining retirement are deciding ...

Less Is More: Invasive Species Removal In Ohio’S Miami Valley Region As Part Of A Green Jobs Guarantee Program, Amy Chin Apr 2020

Less Is More: Invasive Species Removal In Ohio’S Miami Valley Region As Part Of A Green Jobs Guarantee Program, Amy Chin

Student Papers in Local and Global Regional Economies

When it comes to plants and other wildlife, it is important to distinguish between quality and quantity. More green space may be pleasing to the eye, but if the green space contains invasive plants, it can cause more harm than good. Unfortunately, invasive species can be found all over Ohio – in state parks, nature preserves, local park systems, farm land, and citizens’ back yards. In this proposal, the negative impact of invasive species in Ohio will be analyzed from ecological, economic, and sociocultural lenses. The concept of an Invasive Species Removal Technician as part of a green jobs guarantee program ...

Call Center Jobs To Mitigate Unemployment And Isolation Problems Amid Coronavirus Crisis In The United States, Pepin Kazadi

Student Papers in Local and Global Regional Economies

The global economy is undoubtfully under threats of the novel coronavirus. Government and local authorities have taken precaution measures to mitigate the spread of the virus. Shutdowns and social distancing restrictions, taken in the context of fighting the spread of the virus, have prompted an unpredicted slowdown of the global economy. In the United States, the economic disruptions due to the pandemic have terribly increased the unemployment level. About 22.034 million of Americans have filed for unemployment benefits since March 21, 2020 (Mutikani, 2020). In addition, working hours have been reduced. Small businesses, such as food and beverage services ...


The “Dulled” & Disappearing Gem City: An Attempt To Restore The Social And Economic Forces Of Dayton, Ohio While Incorporating Ecological Principles, Hailey Lane Apr 2020

The “Dulled” & Disappearing Gem City: An Attempt To Restore The Social And Economic Forces Of Dayton, Ohio While Incorporating Ecological Principles, Hailey Lane

Student Papers in Local and Global Regional Economies

In 1903, Dayton garnered the greatest number of patents per capita relative to any other U.S. city. It was the epicenter for the creation of the cash register, powered flight, catalytic convertor in automobiles, parking meter, stepladder, and electric wheelchair. Dayton’s history is comprised of the dual forces of innovation and invention. While innovation is not a foreign concept to the Dayton community, it’s Silicon Valley-esque status has since dissipated and patent numbers are subsequently falling. The Great Recession reduced manufacturing in Dayton through subsequent closures in factories; this oriented Dayton towards being a more service-oriented city ...


Hunting As Conservation In The United States – Sustaining Suitable Habitat, James Olderham Apr 2020

Hunting As Conservation In The United States – Sustaining Suitable Habitat, James Olderham

Student Papers in Local and Global Regional Economies

In aggregating the increasing information being collected on the value of goods and services that natural and semi-natural ecosystems provide, de Groot, Wilson, and Boumans attempted to create a standardized view to assess the economic valuation of ecosystem functions (2002). One of the ecosystem functions mentioned in their system is the Nursery function, which is associated with the process of reproducing suitable habitats (de Groot et al, 2002). The authors list the hunting of game, fishing, and the gathering of fruits and vegetation as examples of goods and services that play a role in fulfilling this function of nature (2002 ...
