Ready Reference Collections: A History, Carol A. Singer

University Libraries Faculty Publications

Ready reference collections were originally formed, and still exist, because they perform a valuable function in providing convenient access to information that is frequently used at the reference desk. As library collections have been transformed from print to electronic, some of the materials in these collections have inevitably also been replaced by electronic resources. This article explores the historical roots of ready reference collections and their recent evolution.

Getting Into The Workflow: Graduate Support Workshops, Steven Baumgart, Rebecca Payne, Anne E. Rauh, Lisa Saywell

Anne Rauh

How can librarians engage with graduate student education and research? Often, graduate student orientations of academic departments include only introductory information about the library and are discipline-focused. To address a need for better library support for graduate students increasingly pursuing interdisciplinary research and study, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries initiated a series of workshops designed to integrate into the workflow of graduate students. Presenters will discuss how the program evolved from a one-library pilot program into a coordinated series of workshops across multiple campus libraries. Details about workshop topics, structure, design, and promotion and series feedback and next steps will ...

Reference On The Web: Know Before You Go, Sue Polanka 2010 Wright State University - Main Campus

Reference On The Web: Know Before You Go, Sue Polanka

University Libraries' Staff Publications

Last November I got the dreaded call. My travel agent for 10 years, the one who booked all my international flights, found children's fares, and helped me short-term lease a car in Belgium, was going out of business. Her business was yet another to disappear as the result of the plethora of self-service, fast, and convenient online travel sites like Expedia, Kayak, Priceline, and Travelocity, to name a few. Although I miss the personal touch of my travel agent, I do find that online travel sites are quite useful. There's certainly no lack of them, so selecting just ...

A Longitudinal Study Of Language And Ideology In Congress, Bei Yu, Daniel Diermeier 2010 Syracuse University

A Longitudinal Study Of Language And Ideology In Congress, Bei Yu, Daniel Diermeier

School of Information Studies: Faculty Scholarship

This paper presents an analysis of the legislative speech records from the 101st-108th U.S. Congresses using machine learning and natural language processing methods. We use word vectors to represent the speeches in both the Senate and the House, and then use text categorization methods to classify the speakers by their ideological positions. The classification accuracy indicates the level of distinction between the liberal and the conservative ideologies. Our experiment results demonstrate an increasing partisanship in the Congress between 1989 and 2006. Ideology classifiers trained on the House speeches can predict the Senators' ideological positions well (House-to-Senate prediction), however the ...

Interdisciplinary Collaboration: A Faculty Learning Community Creates A Comprehensive Libguide, Jennifer J. Little, Moira Fallon, Jason Dauenhauer, Betsy Balzano, Donald Halquist

Library Publications and Presentations

Purpose – Many colleges and universities require both undergraduate and graduate students to plan and conduct research as a part of graduation requirements. However, a number of barriers exist for both instructors and students in understanding and conducting research. A small group of, The College at Brockport, instructors who had taught introductory research and research methodology gathered together with librarians as a faculty learning community (FLC) to share information about their instructional methods for teaching research skills. The paper aims to discuss this initiative.

Design/methodology/approach – Following an initiative to foster career-span faculty development, The College at Brockport made a ...

Mobile Technologies: Participation And Surveillance, Katie Shilton

Ethics in Science and Engineering National Clearinghouse

Mobile phones could become the largest surveillance system on the planet. These ubiquitous devices can sense and record data such as images, sound and location. They can automatically upload this data via wireless connections into systems for aggregation and analysis. But unlike traditional surveillance devices, phone sensors can be controlled by billions of individuals around the world. Are emerging mobile technologies platforms for citizen participation in research and discovery? Or new tools for mass surveillance?

Location-based technologies and mobile phone applications like carbon footprint calculator Ecorio and Google’s Latitude are attracting attention and raising new questions for engineers, policy ...
