Transitioning From A Paraprofessional To Professional Librarian, Jerry McRae 2018 AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

Transitioning From A Paraprofessional To Professional Librarian, Jerry Mcrae

AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library Staff Publications

This poster provides insight into the major shift from library technician to reference librarian by examining the differences and similarities in each position, the factors influencing the decision to change careers and the experiences encountered by new librarians. What should a staff member consider when considering the leap to professional librarian? How can one prepare for the challenges and what can libraries do to support the transition? Some library assistants may work closely with librarians and, therefore, have a better understanding of the differing roles and responsibilities. The decision to become a librarian is a significant one, because of the ...

Appraisal Of Faculty Personal Papers In American Public University Archives: The Public Records Retention Schedule Versus Cultural And Historical Selection Criteria And The Role Of The Archives In The University, Ruth E. Bryan 2018 University of Kentucky

Appraisal Of Faculty Personal Papers In American Public University Archives: The Public Records Retention Schedule Versus Cultural And Historical Selection Criteria And The Role Of The Archives In The University, Ruth E. Bryan

Library Presentations

In the United States, university archives are part of the university organizational structure. The archives can be formed strictly of permanent university records or can also include the personal papers of individuals related to the university, most often faculty, but also administrators and students/alumni. In addition, by law, the records produced by American public universities--including many of the personal papers acquired by public university archives--are also public records, which must be appraised using their specific state-mandated records retention schedule.

The main goal of the schedule is to manage the current and non-current records of the organization in order to ...

“Eminently Combustible” -- Charles Williams, The Most Interesting Inkling, Clay Waters 2018 University of Alabama

“Eminently Combustible” -- Charles Williams, The Most Interesting Inkling, Clay Waters

SLIS Connecting

The English author and lay theologian Charles Williams was an idiosyncratic, intriguing, perhaps intimidating subject. He was born in St. Albans near London in September 1886 and died in Oxford in May 1945. In that relatively brief life, his prodigious literary output encompassed virtually every form imaginable (novels, poetry, theology, critical reviews, plays, masques, detective story reviews, even a single short story). Elizabeth Wright (1962) commented on his “versatility and quantity” when describing “the size and scope of his published writings... Writing as he did in almost every form, he nevertheless maintained a consistency of theme that makes his work ...


Documenting The British East India Company And Their Involvement In The East Indian Slave Trade, Bonnie Pinkston 2018 University of Southern Mississippi

Documenting The British East India Company And Their Involvement In The East Indian Slave Trade, Bonnie Pinkston

SLIS Connecting

The histories of the British East India Company, possessions, political influence, and economic ventures have shaped the dynamics of modern history. The enormity of the British East India Company (EIC) and other European trade companies’ impact on globalized world trade has been the subject of numerous studies. Yet, as many scholars have pointed out the topic has lacked proper attention regarding the Indian Ocean slave trade, particularly when it involved the transportation of people from nations other than from the continent of Africa. As Jayasuriya (2005, 2006) stated, “Africans were not the only people to be enslaved within the boundaries ...


Through The Lens: World War I Photography As Historical Record, Kimberly Holifield 2018 University of Southern Mississippi

Through The Lens: World War I Photography As Historical Record, Kimberly Holifield

SLIS Connecting

Soldiers of the First World War viewed their experience not only through the lens that surrounds a colored iris but also through the lens of a camera. World War I marked the first time that the camera traveled with amateurs to war. Unencumbered by the assortment of nineteenth-century equipment necessary to develop a single photograph, soldiers of the new century used the camera to capture their personal view of war (Carmichael, 1989). Their pictures tell a story of comradeship, the daily drudgeries of duty, and sacrifice. Words convey thoughts and emotions. A photograph captures them for display.

Inhabitants of Great Britain have been brewing and drinking ale since the Bronze Ages. The province of Britannia and its capital Londinium were ruled by the Romans almost 2,000 years ago. Romans were great builders of roads that connected tabernae, which served food, wine, and local ale. These tabernae displayed vine leaves outside to advertise their trade.

After the Romans left, alehouses became common, as ale was safer than water, which was becoming increasingly polluted with an expanding Medieval population. In 1393, King Richard II ordered: "Whosoever shall brew ale in the town with intention of selling it must ...
