The encyclopedia of strikes in American history by Aaron Brenner( )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 2,594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strikes have been part of American labor relations from colonial days to the present, reflecting the widespread class conflict that has run throughout the nation's history. This comprehensive encyclopedia is the first detailed collection of historical research on strikes in America. To provide the analytical tools for understanding strikes, the volume includes two types of essays--those focused on an industry or economic sector, and those focused on a theme
Rebel rank and file : labor militancy and revolt from below in the long 1970s( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often considered irredeemably conservative, the US working class actually has a rich history of revolt. Rebel Rank and File uncovers the hidden story of insurgency from below against employers and union bureaucrats in the late 1960s and 1970s. From the mid-1960s to 1981, rank-and-file workers in the United States engaged in a level of sustained militancy not seen since the Great Depression and World War II. Millions participated in one of the largest strike waves in US history. There were 5,716 stoppages in 1970 alone, involving more than 3 million workers. Contract rejections, collective insubordination, sabotage, organized slowdowns, and wildcat strikes were the order of the day. Workers targeted much of their activity at union leaders, forming caucuses to fight for more democratic and combative unions that would forcefully resist the mounting offensive from employers that appeared at the end of the postwar economic boom. It was a remarkable era in the history of US class struggle, one rich in lessons for today's labor movement. -- Publisher description

Rank-and-file rebellion, 1966-1975 by Aaron Brenner( )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation investigates the upsurge of working class militancy in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when American union workers engaged in an extraordinary level of rank-and-file activism. An investigation among three groups of workers -- postal workers, communications workers, and teamsters, demonstrates how changes on the job and in the union stimulated and retarded union workers' organization

Using participatory design and visual narrative inquiry to investigate researchers' data challenges and recommendations for library research data services( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<Title><x>Abstract</x></title><sec><title>Purpose</title>- The purpose of this paper is to report on an information gathering study on users' research data-related challenges and proposals for library research data services (RDS). This study probes how early career researchers visually conceptualize the research process in their disciplines, their self-reported research data challenges, and their recommendations for library RDS.</sec><sec><title>Design/methodology/approach</title>- Two focus group sessions were undertaken with a total of eight early career researchers. Adopting the visual narrative inquiry method, the participants were asked to sketch the general research process in their domain. The individuals' illustrations of the research process were then used as the basis for reflecting on their data-related needs and potential RDS that would assist them during the research process.</sec><sec><title>Findings</title>- Participants presented a research process that was more personal and, in most cases, more imperfect than the research lifecycle models that academic libraries are increasingly using for RDS development and communication. The authors present their data-related challenges, which included data access barriers, low knowledge of best practices for research data management, the need for a deeper understanding of post-publication impact, and inconsistent awareness of existing library and institution RDS. The authors outline RDS recommendations that participants proposed, which included a web-based tools, customized training sessions, and "distilled" guides to research data best practices.</sec><sec><title>Practical implications</title>- The study flagged users' gaps in understandings of existing library and institutional RDS, suggesting that there may be an opportunity to engage users in the design of communications plans for services. The findings from this user study will inform the development of RDS at the institution.</sec><sec><title>Originality/value</title>- This paper puts forth a methodological approach that academic libraries can adapt for understanding users' needs and user-generated design solutions.</sec>
