Katrina: The Storm – The Aftermath, Elizabeth M. Doolittle

The Southeastern Librarian

Katrina, the most horrendous hurricane to strike the Gulf Coast affected lives, communities, and business, everything in its path. The impact of the hurricane was strongest on Monday August 29, 2005 when it came ashore at Bay St. Louis, MS. The enormous eye of the storm actually struck several communities including Waveland and Pass Christian. Gulfport and Biloxi suffered the effect of the tremendous winds surrounding the eye. Both the preparation for and the aftermath of the storm produced widespread disruption to lives and activities throughout a large part of the Gulf Coast region.

I Wonder Who's Using Us Now: Hurricane Katrina's Influence On Use Of Special Collections At The University Of New Orleans Library, Florence M. Jumonville

The Southeastern Librarian

On the afternoon of Friday, August 26, 2005, a student approached the reference desk at the University of New Orleans (UNO) library’s Louisiana and Special Collections Reading Room and returned the book from the UNO Faculty Authors Collection that he had been perusing. It was a routine transaction, and department personnel had no inkling that this one would be the last that their department would make for more than four months. Weatherwatchers, however, already were aware of the threat posed by Hurricane Katrina, which was then churning in the Gulf of Mexico. Television broadcasts that evening brought alarming forecasts ...


Web 2.0 In Libraries: Assessing New Services, Jean Vollrath Oct 2007

Web 2.0 In Libraries: Assessing New Services, Jean Vollrath

The Southeastern Librarian

Each morning’s work at the Center for Creative Leadership library involves scanning the internet news sources for stories that affect company clients, particularly new business trends and innovations. Two such trends are Web 2.0 and the idea of “third place.” The term “third place” refers to an open, neutral, creative haven for social interaction and collaboration, such as a library or coffee shop. Web 2.0 refers to those new internet technologies that can be used to create virtual “third place” communities through synchronous and asynchronous communication. So it was not surprising to see a new column in ...

Living The Virtual Library Life., Carol Tenopir

School of Information Sciences -- Faculty Publications and Other Works

Sites such as Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, and Second Life provide a personal, but virtual, library presence to link librarians and library patrons.

A Hard Rain's Agonna Fall, Mark Y. Herring Sep 2007

A Hard Rain's Agonna Fall, Mark Y. Herring

Dacus Library Faculty Publications

The June issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education showcased as its cover story the blaring headlines, “Should the Internet Be Scrapped?” Did this surprise anyone? If it did, you must not have been paying attention. Over the last decade, the Internet, the Web—yes, yes, I know the terms are technically not synonymous but have become so in usage—has become increasingly useless as a scholarly tool. The CHE story discussed the obvious problems: spam, viruses, unreliable connections, not to mention unreliable information, disinformation and even misinformation.

Are Technical Services Topics Underrepresented In The Contributed Papers At The Acrl National Conferences?, Robert P. Holley

School of Information Sciences Faculty Research Publications

This study tests the hypothesis that the contributed papers at the 12 ACRL national conferences do not cover topics of interest to technical services librarians in proportion to their membership in ACRL. The analysis showed that 14.66% of contributed papers dealt with subjects that were part of the charge of ALCTS, the technical services division in ALA, and its five sections. This percentage dropped to 7.52% with the removal of collection development papers that are also of high interest to many public services librarians. Current overlap statistics indicate that 18.83% of ACRL members also belong to ALCTS ...

Etsu Medical Residents' Clinical Information Behaviors, Skills, Training, And Resource Use., Richard Wallace

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Information is a powerful tool for enabling physicians to provide quality healthcare for their patients. Information use in the clinic is a skill that must be learned. If medical residency programs fail to impart this skill, then patients will suffer.

The residents of the ETSU Quillen College of Medicine were surveyed as to their use of clinical information. Of the 217 residents of the 2005-2006 class who were surveyed, 105 returned the survey for a return rate of 48%. The clinical faculty was also surveyed in order to measure the responses of the residents against that of their instructors.
