University libraries and scholarly communication : a study prepared for the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation by Anthony M Cummings( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of the research library in scholarly communication. Two main issues are addressed: (1) the explosion of printed materials coupled with a rapid increase in the price of these materials that jeopardizes the library's ability to create and maintain collections for users; and (2) the emergence of electronic information technologies that make it possible to envision new methods of organizing services and collections. This document collects statistical data and information on changes facing research libraries. The Association of Research Libraries (arl) database of library statistics is the main source of information. Part I examines trends in the size of collections; rates of acquisition; levels and categories of expenditures; publications of monographs and serials; and prices of these publications. Some of the findings from this section are: research libraries' percentage of the university budget has shrunk; serial prices have continued to rise creating difficulties; and salaries have declined while other operating expenditures have risen. Part ii deals with information needs and new technologies and how they will affect scholarly communication. The arl Statistics Questionnaire is included in the appendix. (Contains 100 references.)

Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steadily increasing immigration to California over the past thirty years has profoundly affected the state. Some observers of these changes see the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. Others see California as the symbol of a major backlash against immigrants and immigration. How has California benefited from immigration? What impact have immigrants had on the state's job market? How have they affected the demand for federal and state services? What has been their education and economic progress since their arrival? This book summarizes the findings of a comprehensive study fully documented in Immigration in a Changing Economy: California's Experience, by Kevin F. McCarthy and Georges Vernez. Using a question-and-answer framework, it discusses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, drawing lessons for California's future as well as for other states and the nation
Newcomers in American schools : meeting the educational needs of immigrant youths by Lorraine McDonnell( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report, the authors examine the schooling needs of immigrant students, assess how well these needs are currently being met, and suggest strategies for improving schooling outcomes for immigrants. The study analyzes immigrant education from a broad policy perspective, explicitly considering it as a political issue in competition for policymakers' attention and scarce public resources and as one of many challenges facing increasingly overburdened local school systems. Study data were collected from a purposive sample of nine school districts and 57 schools. Both on-site and telephone interviews were conducted with 240 district and school administrators, teachers, counselors, and community representatives. Four major conclusions emerged from the research: 1) Although they represent only a fraction of the nation's youth, immigrants constitute a growing proportion of that cohort and are heavily concentrated in a few areas of the country; 2) immigrant education is not a visible policy issue. Independent of their need to learn English and to escape the consequences of poverty, immigrant students are not viewed by federal and state policymakers as a distinct group requiring unique policy remedies--that immigrants may have different needs than native-born students is not widely recognized nor accepted; 3) the quality of schooling that immigrant students receive largely depends on the capacity of the local communities in which they reside. Yet most of these districts and schools lack the human and fiscal resources to educate students well, whether they are immigrant or native-born; and 4) immigrant students have unmet educational needs that are unique to their newcomer status. But the best way to help immigrant students is to strengthen the school systems that serve them, not to create new categorical programs that single out immigrants for special benefits

Masculinity after Trujillo : the politics of gender in Dominican literature by Maja Horn( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any observer of Dominican political and literary discourse will quickly notice how certain notions of hyper-masculinity permeate the culture. Many critics will attribute this to an outgrowth of "traditional" Latin American patriarchal culture. Masculinity after Trujillo demonstrates why they are mistaken. In this extraordinary work, Maja Horn argues that this common Dominican attitude became ingrained during the dictatorship (1930-61) of Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, as well as through the U.S. military occupation that preceded it. Where previous studies have focused mainly on Spanish colonialism and the controversial sharing of the island with Haiti, Horn emphasizes the underexamined and lasting influence of U.S. imperialism and how it prepared the terrain for Trujillo's hyperbolic language of masculinity. She also demonstrates how later attempts to emasculate the image of Trujillo often reproduced the same masculinist ideology popularized by his government. By using the lens of gender politics, Horn enables readers to reconsider the ongoing legacy of the Trujillato, including the relatively weak social movements formed around racial and ethnic identities, sexuality, and even labor. She offers exciting new interpretations of such writers as Hilma Contreras, Rita Indiana Hernández, and Junot Díaz, revealing the ways they successfully challenge dominant political and canonical literary discourses

Collection development and management at Cornell : a concluding report on activities of the Cornell University Libraries' Project for Collection Development and Management, July 1979-June 1980, with proposals for future planning by J. Gormly Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing concern on behalf of the Cornell Libraries administration about the lack of a central plan for library collection development at Cornell resulted in a study of the collection development function at Cornell, and the product of that study is this comprehensive proposal for a university-wide library collection and information resource planning program. The role and mission of the university's library system, the evolution of that system, and the function of the library system as part of the university information resource network are discussed in detail, the objectives of a collection development plan are outlined, and collection development responsibilities are defined. An organizational structure for collection development at Cornell is proposed, and among the adminstrative and budgetary aspects of the plan presented are the budget process, accounting and fund control, and book fund allocations. The relationship of collection management to collection development is also addressed. Accompanying and illustrating the text are three charts, eight tables, and one figure. The appendices include a list of definitions, a 37-item bibliography on the allocation of book funds in academic libraries, and a list of data collected during the Cornell Collection Management and Development Project.

Adulterous nations : family politics and national anxiety in the European novel by Tatiana Kuzmic( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Adulterous Nations, Tatiana Kuzmic enlarges our perspective on the nineteenth-century novel of adultery and how it often served as a metaphor for relationships between the imperial and the colonized. In the context of the long-standing practice of gendering nations as female, the novels discussed--Eliot's Middlemarch, Fontane's Effi Briest, and Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, along with Šenoa's The Goldsmith's Gold and Sienkiewicz's Quo Vadis--can be understood as depicting international crises on the scale of the nuclear family. Kuzmic argues that the hopes, anxieties, and interests of European nations in this period can be discerned in the destabilizing force of adultery. Reading the work of Šenoa and Sienkiewicz, Kuzmic illuminates the relationship between the literature of dominant nations and that of the semicolonized territories that posed a threat to them. Kuzmic's study enhances our understanding of not only these novels but nineteenth-century European literature more generally
