Occupational Hearing Loss In Agricultural Settings, Marilia Antunez Dec 2014

Occupational Hearing Loss In Agricultural Settings, Marilia Antunez

Marilia Y. Antunez, MLS, MA

Most of the materials on hearing loss due to noise in the agricultural industry are training and research-oriented materials in the form of brochures, manuals, and journal articles, published by academic presses, government associations, and professional organizations, respectively. Few books are entirely devoted to the topic of hearing loss in agricultural settings. Recently, many occupational and safety Web sites have been adding information and links to publications dealing with hearing loss in the agricultural industry. This Webliography represents the author's best efforts to briefly describe some authoritative Web sites with information targeted to individuals interested in farm occupational hearing loss.

Building Digital Libraries For Scientific Data: An Exploratory Study Of Data Practices In Habitat Ecology, Christine Borgman, Jillian Wallis, Noel Enyedy

Jillian C Wallis

As data become scientific capital, digital libraries of data become more valuable. To build good tools and services, it is necessary to understand scientists’ data practices. We report on an exploratory study of habitat ecologists and other participants in the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing. These scientists are more willing to share data already published than data that they plan to publish, and are more willing to share data from instruments than hand-collected data.

Policy issues include responsibility to provide clean and reliable data, concerns for liability and misappropriation of data, ways to handle sensitive data about human subjects arising …

Two Biographical Sketches Of Gabriel Furman, The Faust Club Of Brooklyn, William Gowans, Paul Royster (Transcriber & Depositor)

Paul Royster

The following two biographical sketches of Gabriel Furman (1800–1854) appeared in the reprint edition of Notes, Geographical and Historical, Relating to the Town of Brooklyn, on Long-Island published in 1865 by the Faust Club of Brooklyn. The first is by the (unidentified) editor and compiler of that volume; the second is by the publisher and bookseller William Gowans. Gabriel Furman was a Brooklyn lawyer, judge, and state senator, and an eminent scholar, book collector, compiler, and antiquarian. He led an eccentric and solitary life, and died in poverty, the victim, some said, of an opium addiction. His published works consisted …

The Future Of Scholarly Communications, Paul Royster Dec 2006

The Future Of Scholarly Communications, Paul Royster

Paul Royster

I have seen the future arrive several different times and in a number of different settings. It arrives in the form of new technologies. Initial progress is slow, and accompanied by a certain amount of frustration. But new conveniences emerge, and they eventually change the most basic levels and details of how things get done. Continuity is key. You have to have a good strong sense of what you are trying to get done. If you don’t, the technology threatens to take over. You cannot direct it towards your own purposes and goals if it is not always clear to …


Samuel Danforth's Almanack Poems And Chronological Tables 1647-1649, Samuel Danforth, Paul Royster (Transcriber & Editor) Dec 2006

Samuel Danforth's Almanack Poems And Chronological Tables 1647-1649, Samuel Danforth, Paul Royster (Transcriber & Editor)

Paul Royster

Samuel Danforth’s poems from the Almanacks for 1647–1649 are some of the earliest examples of “secular” poetry published in New England. Danforth (1626–1674) was a fellow of Harvard College and an astronomer and mathematician as well as a poet. Although these were not the first almanacs printed in America (the first was by William Peirce, printed at Cambridge in 1639), they are the earliest surviving examples. Danforth’s first printed almanac, for the year 1646 (which survives only in one partial copy), contained no poetry; instead the foot of each month’s page held a running essay on astronomy and the calendar. …

Notes Geographical And Historical, Relating To The Town Of Brooklyn, In Kings County On Long-Island. (1824) An Online Electronic Text Edition., Gabriel Furman, Paul Royster

Paul Royster

Furman’s work is one of the earliest compilations of historical documents (with commentary) about an American city, in this case his native Brooklyn. It is an invaluable source of information on the early Dutch and English settlements of Brooklyn, Flatbush, Bushwick, New Lotts, Canarsie, Bedford, New Utrecht, Jamaica, and New Amsterdam, and their controversies with one another and with the Governors of New York and the crown of England. Included are original documents relative to the Indian purchases, original boundaries, water rights, ferry rights, wood rights, and forms of town government.

Melville’S Economy Of Language, Paul Royster Dec 2006

Melville’S Economy Of Language, Paul Royster

Paul Royster

This essay discusses two works by American writer Herman Melville: Moby-Dick (1851) and Pierre (1852), with emphasis on the uses of economic metaphors and on the issues of labor and alienation in the production of whale oil and of literature. Its argument is that Melville considered the mythology of American capitalism positively in the earlier work, and negatively in the later one. Moby-Dick explores the economic relations of the (capitalist) production of whale oil and converts them to metaphors for metaphysical truths. Pierre explores the economic relations involved in the production of literature and exposes the extent to which a …

De Bestiis Marinis, Or, The Beasts Of The Sea (1751), Georg Wilhelm Steller, Walter Miller (Translator), Jennie Emerson Miller (Translator), Paul Royster (Transcriber And Editor)

Paul Royster

Steller’s classic work, published in Latin in 1751 and in German in 1753, contains the only scientific description from life of the Steller’s sea cow (Hydrodamalis gigas), as well as the first scientific descriptions of the fur seal or “sea bear” (Callorhinus ursinus), Steller’s sea lion (Eumetopias jubatus), and the sea otter (Enhydra lutris). Steller’s sea cow was a sirenian, or manatee, inhabiting the North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea. It was first discovered by Europeans in 1741 and rendered extinct by 1768. It was a 30-foot long, plant-eating aquatic mammal, weighing up to 12 tons, that lived in large …
