Not Your Usual Content: The Rosarium Project. An Online Collection Of Materials On The Rose Using The Text Encoding Initiative And ., Julia R Tryon

Julia R. Tryon

Using the XML editor Oxygen, I am text encoding articles, books and other materials written in English before 1923 with a view to creating an online, searchable database for the genus Rosa. The project is called the Rosarium Project. First I transcribe the text of a work into a Pages document. Then I use <oXygen/> to mark up the transcriptions using the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium's P5 guidelines. Finally, I upload my XML files to the TAPAS Project where I can see how my encoding renders. Ultimately a website that will allow for searching and limiting will be created ...

The Libraries They Are A-Changin’: How Libraries Reorganize, John Novak, Annette Day 2016 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

The Libraries They Are A-Changin’: How Libraries Reorganize, John Novak, Annette Day

John Novak

This paper will report on the results of a study of library reorganizations in the literature. The authors identified five steps common to all library reorganizations, and this paper describes those steps as well as two management change theories most mentioned in the literature--the eight-step process of change by John Kotter and Reframing Organizations by Lee G. Bolman and Terrence E. Deal. The paper will draw conclusions formed by a comparison of these theoretical models to the practice and real life experience of reorganizations as described by libraries in the literature.

Archiving Governance In Palestine, Caitlin M. Davis 2016 University of New Mexico

Archiving Governance In Palestine, Caitlin M. Davis

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

During the 1980s, a historical turn within the discipline of anthropology fueled an ‘archival imaginary’, which encouraged scholars to enter archival spaces, study their documents, and collect the historical ‘context’ that had been missing from previous ethnographic texts. The archive, in other words, became a repository, a site for the extraction of information about a particular topic. In the historiography of Palestine, these activities have proved fruitful; new historians have mined military and state archives in ways that have illuminated the nefarious details regarding the ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Fewer scholars, however, have positioned ‘the archive’ as a subject (not ...
