"Developed by the Newberry Library with the cooperation of the Chicago Historical Society, The Encyclopedia of Chicago is the definitive historical reference on metropolitan Chicago. More than a decade in the making, the Encyclopedia brings together hundreds of historians, journalists, and experts on everything from airlines to Zoroastrians to explore all aspects of the rich world of Chicagoland, from its geological prehistory to the present." "The main alphabetical section of the Encyclopedia, comprising more than 1,400 entries, covers the full range of Chicago's neighborhoods, suburbs, and ethnic groups as well as the city's cultural institutions, technology and science, architecture, religions, immigration, transportation, business history, labor, music, health and medicine, and hundreds of other topics. The Encyclopedia has the widest geographical reach of any city encyclopedia of its kind, encompassing eight of the region's counties, including suburbs. Nearly 400 thumbnail maps pinpoint Chicago neighborhoods and suburban municipalities; these maps are complemented by hundreds of black-and-white and color photographs and thematic maps that bring the history of metropolitan Chicago to life. Additionally, contributors have provided lengthy interpretive essays - woven into the alphabetical section but set off graphically - that take a long view of such topics as the built environment, literary images of Chicago, and the city's legendary and passionate sports culture." "The Encyclopedia also offers a comprehensive biographical dictionary of more than 2,000 individuals important to Chicago history and a detailed listing of approximately 250 of the city's historically significant business enterprises. A color insert features a timeline of Chicago history and photo essays exploring nine pivotal years in this history."--Jacket

Teaching the history of immigration and ethnicity : a syllabus exchange( Book )

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

"Although our collection is hardly a systematic sample, we can point readers to many types of information included in course outlines. We briefly considered preparation of a bibliography of assigned books and articles, but concluded that such a list would not substantially improve on existing bibliographical aids. We did, however, compile a list of films and videos used in these courses (see Appendix 1). We were fascinated to find so many of our colleagues extensively using film and videos in teaching, and yet we knew of no existing list of film resources for teachers of immigration history"--Introd

Log cabins and wagon trains, cowboys and Indians, Buffalo Bill and General Custer.

Richard White and Patricia Limerick join their inimitable talents to explore our national preoccupation with this uniquely American image. Richard White examines the two most enduring stories of the frontier, both told in Chicago in 1893, the year of the Columbian Exposition. One was Frederick Jackson Turner's remarkably influential l

Approaches to managing future training( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report explores issues related to managing adaptable training in the future, when Future Combat Systems (FCS), embedded training (ET) capabilities, and a full range of personnel management tools are the norm for daily operations. The report first discusses the issues associated with management of future training and related current and emerging Army initiatives, FCS documentation, and previous research findings. The five principal issues concern the vision and expectation for future training; the tools and information that would be needed; how the tools and information could be provided using automated channels; what level of automation users will accept; and the nature of near-term solutions. The concept for a future training management system, is described through use cases that detail the use of specific tools and information. Based on analysis of the use cases, technology needs are described in five areas: massive database systems, bi-directional reach (both accessing and sending needed information), sophisticated self-learning search engines, performance support systems and computer-generated simulations powered by artificial intelligence, and super-broad bandwidth. We then present a set of detailed recommendations, including priorities, interim solutions for near-term development, and directions for further research and development in both training and technology realms
