Map It @ Wsu: Development Of A Library Mapping System For Large Academic Libraries, Paul Gallagher 2010 Wayne State University

Map It @ Wsu: Development Of A Library Mapping System For Large Academic Libraries, Paul Gallagher

Library Scholarly Publications

The Wayne State University Library System launched its library mapping application in February 2010, designed to help locate materials in the five WSU libraries. The system works within the catalog to show the location of materials, as well as provides a web form for use at the reference desk. Developed using PHP and MySQL, it requires only minimal effort to update using a unique call number overlay mechanism. In addition to mapping shelved materials, the system provides information for any of the over three hundred collections held by the WSU Libraries. Patrons can do more than just locate a book ...

Ddasaccident718, Humanitarian Demining Accident And Incident Database

Global CWD Repository

The accident occurred on 22 June 2010, 09:30 AM in clearance lane of [the Victim], located in a steep sloping area within the MF. He was busy in full excavation there, suddenly some stones and soil slipped down in front of him and caused a PMN2 mine to go off. The ground where [the Victim] was working was of a loose and sliding nature, so it slipped down and directly hit the mine and caused the accident. So this was an unpreventable accident in nature, but as it seems from the location and severity of injuries, the visor was ...


Students' Perceptions Of Their Esl Training In Preparation For University Reading Tasks, Olha Kondiyenko 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

Students' Perceptions Of Their Esl Training In Preparation For University Reading Tasks, Olha Kondiyenko

All Theses and Dissertations

This study sought to determine perceptions of former English Language Center (ELC) students of their readiness for university reading tasks after completing their ESL training. Former ELC students who now study or have studied at 10 different American post-secondary institutions provided insights for the study. Through questionnaires and face-to-face interviews, the study collected and analyzed many interesting and revealing comments from participants. Their comments demonstrated that even though the majority of students overall were satisfied with their learning experiences at the ELC, some significant changes still have to be made to be able to fully meet students' educational needs. Participants ...


The Status Of Labor-Saving Mechanization In Fruits And Vegetables, Wallace E. Huffman 2010 Iowa State University

The Status Of Labor-Saving Mechanization In Fruits And Vegetables, Wallace E. Huffman

Economics Working Papers (2002–2016)

The objective of this paper is to examine the status of labor-saving mechanization in U.S. fruit and vegetable harvesting. Fruit and vegetable harvest mechanization has several potential advantages: reduced harvest costs, eliminate problems associated with finding good quality harvest labor, permit longer harvesting days, and reduce exposure of harvest to human bacteria. Commercial mechanical harvesters for processed tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, carrots, tart cherries, apples, grapes, peaches, plums and grapes are in the hands of growers. To my surprise, considerable progress has been made on fresh market sweet cherry, apple and berry harvesters, and in the next few years commercial ...

Household Production Theory And Models, Wallace E. Huffman 2010 Iowa State University

Household Production Theory And Models, Wallace E. Huffman

Economics Working Papers (2002–2016)
