Women and computers by A. F Grundy( )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and Italian and held by 1,545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book investigates women's perception of computers and describes the working environment for women in computing." "When computers have so much to offer - in the arts, in the workplace, or as labour-saving devices at home - women appear to have accepted computing as essentially a man's province. The author considers the effect of the culture and language of computing as well as the impact of the hardware in order to account for why so few women study computing in secondary and higher education. There is also consideration of whether there are more fundamental factors that deter women." "The book takes a strongly feminist standpoint without using technical terms from sociology or feminist theory. No prior knowledge of computing is assumed and all computing terms are explained, though not in ways patronising to the expert." "With its wide-ranging observations and ideas, this book makes an interesting and valuable contribution to the analysis of women's role in computing. The framework provided helps the reader to think about how women may be able to use computers creatively in the future and to take an equal role with men in the dramatic developments yet to come."--Jacket
Advances in databases : 11th British National conference on databases, BNCOD 11, Keele, UK, July 7-9, 1993 : proceedings by Michael Worboys( Book )

20 editions published in 1993 in English and and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the proceedings of the eleventh British National Conference on Databases, held at Keele University, England. A dominant themein the volume is the provision of the means to enhance the capabilities of databases to handle information that has a rich semantic structure. A major research question is how to achieve such a semantic scale-up without sacrificing performance. There are currently two main paradigms within which it is possible to propose answers to this question, deduction-oriented and object-oriented. Both paradigms are well represented in this collection, with the balance in the direction of the deductive approach, which is followed by both the invited papers, by Michael Freeston from the European Computer-Industry Research Centre in Munich and Carlo Zaniolo from the University of California at Los Angeles. In addition, the volume contains 13 full papers selected from a total of36 submissions
Women, work, and computerization : spinning a web from past to future : proceedings of the 6th International IFIP-Conference, Bonn, Germany, May 24-27, 1997 by Work and Computerization IFIP TC9/WG9.1 International Conference on Women( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume considers the submissions to the 6th International IFIP-TC 9/WG 9.1 Conference on Women, Work and Computerization WWC 97. The conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and users in the field of information technology. In this book the authors discuss how different areas of society are being transformed by computer technology, but with particular emphasis on changes in women's work and life and how these have come about. Such transformations include the transitions from women's traditional work to work based on modern technology; from communicating within personal communities to communicating within virtual communities; from traditional job gendering to new perspectives on "who does what"."--Jacket
