A plan for a publication network : for rapid dissemination of technical information by James H MacLachlan( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes an alternative to current information dissemination systems (letter journals), computerized information systems, and clearinghouse operations) that would establish a network of depositories at universities and research organizations. The essence of the approach is to provide convenient access to working papers and technical reports on a basis that could be self-supporting for the sponsoring institutions and remunerative for the authors. The paper describes the technical procedures of the plan and proposes a pilot project that would implement the plan on a small scale to a selected group of graduate schools of business. The proposal includes organizational considerations, dissemination networks, and financial analysis. It is hoped that the possibilities for the pilot implementation can be explored further. (Ch)

Princetonians, 1748-1768 : a biographical dictionary by James McLachlan( Book )

4 editions published between 1976 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benjamin Rush, William Paterson, David Ramsay, Oliver Ellsworth, Jonathan Edwards, Jr.—these are only a few of the remarkable men who attended the College of New Jersey (later Princeton University) in its first twenty-one classes. Alumni included five members of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, twenty two participants in the Continental Congress, four Senators, seven Congressmen, and two Justices of the Supreme Court. This volume describes the lives of the 338 men who graduated from the College between 1748 and 1768. Their biographies are arranged by year of graduation, and an introduction provides the early history of the College and its role in colonial culture. In sharp contrast to the graduates of other colleges at the time, Princeton's early students were either born or found their later careers in every one of the thirteen states as well as in Tennessee, Kentucky, the West Indies, and Ireland. After graduation most became clergymen, lawyers, doctors, businessmen, and soldiers. While some served as national leaders, others rose to prominence in state and local government, becoming governors, state legislators, and participants in the drafting of state constitutions. This record of their lives is a mine of information about America during the Colonial, Revolutionary, and Early National periods.Originally published in 1977.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

A proposed transition scheme for the longitudinal emittance control in the Fermilab Booster( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instead of applying the {gamma}{sub T} jump at the designed value of 1.0, which never can be used in the operation due to the quad steering, the combination of the rf manipulation and a 0.2-unit {gamma}{sub T} jump can reduce the longitudinal emittance growth nearly 40% during transition. Especially, a 0.2-unit {gamma}{sub T} jump can help in reducing the rf manipulating voltage from 1000 kV to 850 kV, and makes the transition scheme operationally feasible
