A Solution Looking For A Problem: Testimony Before The 2010 Maryland General Assembly On Senate Bill 570/House Bill 986: Campaign Materials – Stockholder Approval, 2010 University of Maryland School of Law
A Solution Looking For A Problem: Testimony Before The 2010 Maryland General Assembly On Senate Bill 570/House Bill 986: Campaign Materials – Stockholder Approval, Larry S. Gibson
The U.S. Supreme Court in Citizens United v Federal Elections Commission declared unconstitutional under the First Amendment right to freedom of speech federal statutory limitations on corporate political expenditures. Before Citizens United, Maryland was already among the 26 states that permitted corporations to make direct political contributions and to make independent political expenditures. Consequently, Citizens United did not change Maryland election law and practice. The Maryland General Assembly has steadfastly resisted efforts to change the Maryland approach. Over the past several years, the General Assembly has repeatedly rejected bills that would have banned political contributions by business entities. Many ...
Raising The Bar In Public Libraries: Literacy, Adolescent Development And Young Adult Services, 2010 University of Iowa
Raising The Bar In Public Libraries: Literacy, Adolescent Development And Young Adult Services, Nicki Blair
This article takes a close look at teenage education and development with the intent of discovering ways in which public libraries can be of better service to a currently underserved population. The research in the area of literacy and learning reveals that over time adults and educators have begun to expect teens to develop a certain skill set. While helping teens to develop skills is of great importance, some expectations are unnecessary and potentially very damaging. Educational theory relates that the educational mold in the United States, while helping many, is not right for all people and a number of ...

The increased use of the Internet for research, as well as the desire to preserve information, has necessitated the digitization of library materials.

"Reading Rants!": Exploring The Design And Implementation Of A Social Cataloging Tool For Teens, 2010 University of Iowa
"Reading Rants!": Exploring The Design And Implementation Of A Social Cataloging Tool For Teens, Rachel Hall, Rebecca Troup, Rebecca Ramsey
In this paper we explore the possibility of creating and implementing an interactive library OPAC interface, called Reading Rants!, that would be designed for and used exclusively by teens. An interactive interface such as Reading Rants! would allow teenagers to interact with their library catalog by contributing content to bibliographic records. Content creation is an integral aspect of the Web 2.0 experience; it transforms the user's experience with the catalog into a dynamic conversation. By providing this highly valued service for teenagers, public libraries would elevate their worth to future library supporters and become more essential to and ...
World Digital Library: Bringing Together Best Practices And Superb Content, 2010 University of Iowa
World Digital Library: Bringing Together Best Practices And Superb Content, Angela P. Murillo
The unparalleled World Digital Library (WDL) was conceptualized by James H. Billington who proposed his idea to the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO in 2005. Mr. Billington has been the Librarian of Congress since 1989 and has been a catalyst for many visionary projects including the American Memory Historical Collections and the National Digital Library Program. He has consistently been extraordinarily forward thinking particularly in regard to technology; since “the 1990s he recognized the potential of the Internet as a tool for peace by bringing together nations’ primary documents that tell the stories of the world’s people and ...
Feminist Communities Online: What It Means To Be A Jezebel, 2010 University of Iowa
Feminist Communities Online: What It Means To Be A Jezebel, Katelyn M. Wazny
This paper examines what it means to identify as a feminist in Western society and whether one can be a feminist while not explicitly stating this aspect of identity. The paper seeks to answer the age-old question (albeit modified slightly,) if it looks like feminist website, and sounds like a feminist website, is it a feminist website? There is much discussion and disagreement over what it means to be a feminist, with different conclusions being drawn by first-, second-, and third-generation members of the movement. Jezebel does not purport to be a feminist website. There is no mention of feminism ...

Environmental Sciences Libguide, Leah C. Osterhaus
The Environmental Sciences Program is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program at the University of Iowa. It includes faculty from the Departments of Anthropology, Geography, Biology, Geoscience, Chemistry, and Civil and Environmental Engineering. Students pursuing a BS in Environmental Sciences can pursue one of four tracks: Biosciences, Chemical Sciences, Geosciences, or Hydrosciences. The four tracks are very different, however there is some overlap with elective courses and there is a set of required foundations courses that all students must take. The interdisciplinary nature of any environmental science topic requires a student to have access to resources across many disciplines. This potential overlap ...

Librarian As Professor: A Dynamic New Role Model, 2010 Seton Hall University
Librarian As Professor: A Dynamic New Role Model, Martha Fallahay Loesch
The 20th century information explosion provided widespread technological innovation and ease of access to information, and due to the 21st century emphasis on digital collections and electronic resources, libraries around the world are facing an uncertain future. This naturally causes librarians to re-evaluate their professional role, but perhaps academic librarians are best prepared for the future due to their co-existing role as professors. Essentially they have always been teaching, but now they must conquer the disparaging image and status treatment to which they have been subjected and evolve their profession by joining their teaching faculty colleagues in classrooms on college ...
