Adoption Fees: Ethical Considerations For All Parties In Adoption, Mirah Riben Dec 2009

Adoption Fees: Ethical Considerations For All Parties In Adoption, Mirah Riben

Mirah Riben

A great deal is said about ethics in adoption. However, the term remains vague, undefined, and subjective with suggested, but no firm or enforced guidelines enacted to police the adoption industry and protect the families and individuals whose lives they irrevocably change. This presentation focuses on the inequities of adoption fees particularly in terms of providing legal counsel to the mothers relinquishing.

Nextgen Acquisitions: A Paradigm Shift For A New Era, Kelly Smith, Kathryn Harnish Nov 2009

Nextgen Acquisitions: A Paradigm Shift For A New Era, Kelly Smith, Kathryn Harnish

Library Faculty and Staff Papers and Presentations

Current integrated library systems traditionally combine both user discovery and inventory management applications, merging very different functional needs into a single environment. As libraries look to the future, our service platforms must evolve in a way that enables both more efficient management and more effective presentation of a wide array of library resources. For many libraries, the first step in the process has been to decouple the user discovery and delivery environment, separating the needs for patron presentation from the requirements for back-office management. In this way, libraries have attempted to improve the enduser experience.

This presentation examines how new ...

Use Of The Worldcat Collection Analysis Tool To Assess The Statewide Serials Collection In Illinois, Chad E. Buckley Nov 2009

Use Of The Worldcat Collection Analysis Tool To Assess The Statewide Serials Collection In Illinois, Chad E. Buckley

Faculty and Staff Publications – Milner Library

In an era of consistently poor funding for materials budgets, libraries must work to identify the most cost-effective solutions for providing access to information needed by patrons. Consortia play an important role in these solutions for many libraries and can help leverage their buying power to provide widespread access to various publishers’ content at more affordable costs. The CARLI consortium in Illinois formed a Statewide Serials Collection Task Force in 2006 to “investigate various collaborative options related to print and electronic serials collections across the state.” As part of this group's work, the Worldcat Collection Analysis tool, commonly employed ...

Reconfiguring Collection Development For The Future: A Faculty Print Serials Review, Audrey Powers, Matt Torrence, Cheryl Mccoy, Jared Hoppenfeld

Academic Services Faculty and Staff Publications

Print and electronic resource selection and deselection are essential collection management processes in academic libraries; however, deselection is often overlooked. During this difficult economic time when accountability is at the forefront of our thinking, the librarians at the University of South Florida are placing higher importance on faculty opinions and advice and including them in the decision-making process. A recent Faculty Print Serials Review was conducted with the intention of replacing low-use print titles with high demand print or electronic resources. Two concepts motivated this project. 1) Journals have long been an important resource for faculty and students of an ...

Youth Involvement In Alternative Subcultures, Groups, Belief Systems, And Lifestyles: Examining International Police And Societal Response, Gordon A. Crews Nov 2009

Youth Involvement In Alternative Subcultures, Groups, Belief Systems, And Lifestyles: Examining International Police And Societal Response, Gordon A. Crews

Criminal Justice Faculty Research

This presentation comparatively examines relationships in the United States, Eastern and Central Europe, Scandinavia, and parts of the Middle East among juvenile violence, "heavy metal" music, substance abuse, and participation in occult and "alternative" youth groups (e.g., Wicca, Satanism, vampirism, Goth). We trace the movement of certain groups, behaviors, and preferences and make a correlation between some of these movements and an increase in youth violence and substance abuse. The authors use results from surveys and participant observations in the U.S., Copenhagen, Germany, the Netherlands, & the Middle East (Egypt & Turkey) that indicate, however, that mere participation in these ...

Lives, Images, Audiences, Intentions: Participatory Visual Anthropology In A Hungarian Romani Neighborhood, Krista Harper Nov 2009

Lives, Images, Audiences, Intentions: Participatory Visual Anthropology In A Hungarian Romani Neighborhood, Krista Harper

Krista M. Harper

Participatory visual methodologies open up new possibilities for community collaboration in the research process, appeal to diverse audiences, and produce rich visual and narrative data guided by participant interests and priorities. Presenting a recent research collaboration with a grassroots Romani (Gypsy) community organization in northern Hungary, I discuss ethical and epistemological questions raised in participatory visual research. In this project, our team used the PhotoVoice method to generate knowledge and documentation related to environment, health, and the lived experiences of social exclusion. I explore power relationships in the research process as well as historical and contemporary issues of documentary photography ...

"I Thought That I Knew Gender Oppression": Exploring Cisgender Privilege In Social Work Education, Kristie Seelman, Sarah Nickels Oct 2009

"I Thought That I Knew Gender Oppression": Exploring Cisgender Privilege In Social Work Education, Kristie Seelman, Sarah Nickels

Kristie L Seelman

Research (Erich et al., 2007; Logie, Bridge, & Bridge, 2007) indicates that social work education fails to adequately include content on the transgender population in the curriculum. Even when content on gender identity and expression is included in social work courses, the primary focus is on the oppression of transgender people rather than the ways that non-transgender people benefit from cisgender privilege. The purpose of this phenomenological qualitative study is to inform social work educators about the experiences of social work students who have explored and challenged their own cisgender privilege. We recruited a purposive sample of six MSW students (all ...
