Anumber of universities have maintained a dedicated laboratory course as part of the process control sequence, but those numbers have been shrinking due to the high resource requirements of lab courses and the pressure to reduce the number of hours in the engineering curriculum. While some chemical engineering departments run a junior measurement lab and a senior unit-operations lab, many now operate only one lab in the senior year which may incorporate control-related experiments. Laboratory courses are evolving, and new directions are being examined at specific universities, combining elements of simulation and also distance learning. In the chemical process industries, the high cost of pilot scale equipment and operating personnel has led to greater reliance on computerbased simulations rather than traditional pilotscale experiments. Consequently, today's engineers work more often from a control room or from behind a computer screen. Now, you

Internet Research or Library Research

...Internet Research or Library Research Abstract Does internet research promote laziness or does it save time? Judith Levine’s article I Surf, Therefore I Am would suggest that the internet is full of garbage and is a useless tool. While reading books, magazines, and newspapers are still available they do come at a cost. However, in the right hands the internet can be a treasure chest full of valuable information. Internet Research or Library Research Where do you go when you have a research paper due? Do you spend countless hours at the neighborhood library combing through endless rows of dusty books or do you go to your personal computer, open up the internet and go to your trusty internet search engine? Like most people today, I would prefer spending my research time at home surfing the World Wide Web for my results. Not only is this a better use of my time as I am sure is the case for many other students, but unlike those that live in large cities I do not have local access to a state of the art library facility. In addition to the internet providing information literally at your fingertips, it also provides instant access to needed information. Unlike Levine, many people do not have access to library facilities as well provided for as the NY Science, Industry, & Business Library. Like myself, there are many who live in small towns with libraries that very frequently do not have the latest best sellers never mind them having adequate material required......

Overall the tests were to relate that using an effective time management skill system a student will accomplish a better overall grade then a student not using time management. Reference Britton, B.

Library of Congress Relevance to School Libraries

...Library of Congress Relevance to School Libraries Donna Smith University of North Texas SLIS 5208 Library of Congress Relevance to School Libraries Introduction The Library of Congress (LOC) plays a momentous role in acquirement, distribution, and preservation of America’s historical and current documents like books, journals, political manuscripts (like the declaration of independence rough draft), government publications, map, films, sound recording, photographic images, and films. LOC was established in America in the first decade of the nineteenth century to act as a researching facility for inquiries made by Congress (Santella, 2006). However, after many years the facility has grown to become a leading institution that encourages reading and literacy among students and the general public. LOC is pertinent in encouraging research of critical information among students by improving information opportunities accessible to students so that they can utilize their potential present times. The twenty-first century is faced with intricate life and work setting and for this reasons, learning and innovation skills have emerged as the qualities that separate students who are prepared to face these challenges and those who are not. The role played by the LOC is evidenced by U.S integral and superb government structure that has existed for years and rated as the best in the world. LOC success can act as a model......

Evaluate Library Databases and Resources for Use in Research

...Library Databases Search Both of the XXX Universitiy library databases and the websites were useful for searching information, but each of them was helpful in a different way. The library databases were only efficient when searched by keywords although their outputs could be controlled by using limiters to narrow down to the topics of interest. The websites, on the other hand, were useful for searching phrases and broad ideas, but their search results could not be filtered. When I first started the library search, I had no idea what to search for. Hence, I began exploring the Harvard Business School website instead. I scanned through tens of their journal articles in Research & Ideas section and spotted an interesting journal of Asian and American leadership styles (Mills, 2005). I used these keywords to search in the library databases. Surprisingly, it returned over 46,800 entries, and there were a few topics about South-East Asia. I changed the search keywords to South-East Asia Leadership Styles and "AND" Management. Then, I set other the limiters to Scholarly/Peer Reviewed Journals, Academic Journals, and 2005-to-2015. This time, the databases returned only 2,316 entries. Out of these articles, I found three academic journals relevant to my search criteria. Other topics such as Academic Transformational Leadership also appeared in the search results. I feel confident that that the library databases are an excellent resource for searching information for my......

...Ortiz send me about the application pass it along so you can read it. She talks about that you don’t need to put anything on the application. Whatever notes or whatever you need to put on the application you need to put on onto Sirsi in the extended part under notes. No notes on the paper applications, not worth putting any extra notes on the paper application. There is no reason for anyone to write stored or any other notes on the registration form staff need only to insure form is completed with the requested info and signed by the customer and make sure there is only one account and data entry completed and new entry updated. Before customer leaves the desk any additional notes on form serve no purpose and are a waste of time for the library. January rd​ 3​ email was sent out. Everybody understand that? Were passing it around so you can see. And then Mercedes sent me an email, they had sent previous and Virginia has about the applications too. it is mainly about the users whenever somebody pay for a, she had returned a book that was in collection, it still on her acct so I had to call central because on this email it says that we need to let know if we are going to waive some fines from collection because they need to update it at central. So they told me that the patron has to pay the 10 dollars even though that they returned the book, they did not use to do that we used to waive for the collection but now they have to pay for it.

...with ability to influence academic performance. Contrary to popular belief, the amount of time spent studying or at work had no direct influence on academic performance. The authors also addressed implications and direction for future research. Copyright © 2006 Heldref Publications T oday’s college students are spending less time studying. The fall 2003 survey conducted by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA’s Graduate School of Education and Information Studies found that only 34% of today’s entering freshmen have spent six or more hours per week outside of class on academic-related work (e.g., doing homework, studying) during their senior year in high school. The sample consisted of 276,449 students at 413 of the nation’s 4-year colleges and universities (over one fourth of entering freshmen in the United States), and the data were statistically adjusted to reflect responses of all firsttime, full-time students entering all four-year colleges and universities as freshmen in 2003. In fact, in 1987 when this question was asked of entering freshmen, 47.0% claimed they spent 6 or more hours per week studying outside of class. Since then, the time spent studying outside of class has declined steadily each year (Higher Education Research Institute, 2003). Another trend that is emerging is the increase in the number of college students who are employed either part time or full time. According to Gose (1998), 39% of college freshmen work 16 or more hours per week, an......

Independent Learning and Role of the University Library in Conducting Research Assignment

...Hamza Ufitabe Gafurama 14002299 Information Systems Independent Learning and Role of the University Library in Conducting Research Assignment 1. How to Narrow Information When a topic is too broad that is not manageable you will find that there is too much information and therefore the focus would have to be narrowed. To help narrow focus a few simple questions can help achieve this • what you know or don’t know about the topic? • what time period you covering • what place or geographic area you will be covering • trying to focus your topic in terms of specific type or class, people, places or things e.g study of traffic patterns • choose one lens through which to view the research problem, e.g rather than studying the role of government in Eastern religions, study the role of government in Hinduism You can apply one or two of strategies above to determine if that gives you a manageable research problem to investigate. Combining multiple strategies risks creating the opposite problem, your topic may become too narrowly defined and you can't locate enough research or data to support your study. 2. How to Evaluate Information Questions that should be asked when evaluating sources. • • • • • • 3. How information was found - where information was found web or library catalog? where you found the information will help in determining its usefulness. Who is the intended audience - knowing the intended audience will help decide the......

...people get when they walk into this library. Perfume and cologne smell lingers in the air. Tall ceilings with gigantic round light fixtures that hang down, with the lights dimmed. As I walked in, it was so calm and peaceful. Rows and rows of books. Magazines and books lying everywhere. The new books felt smooth, the old books made crinkly noises as you turned the pages and the old table had many rough spots. Artificial trees and plants stand in almost every corner of the library, giving it a unique and beautiful look. A magnificent oil painting, located over the fireplace made you feel at home. The librarian was young with auburn colored hair that she had up in a bun, glasses hanging on a multicolored chain to her chest and her dress was all flower print. The carpet is made thick and comfy so the sound of people walking by won’t disturb the focused students sitting in the library. I could hear nothing but the quiet peaceful sounds of paper turning and minds thinking at their best. Telephone ringing, copy machines and whispers is all you really hear in the library. All different ages of people go to the library to just relax and read in a calm setting environment because in libraries the noise is very minimal. The librarians are very kind and helpful. Quiet rooms were occupied by students preparing for a test. Different areas of the library were occupied by many high school and college students. The young adults get great use out of the library for use of the free internet......
