Constructing Family: A Typology Of Voluntary Kin, Leslie Baxter, Dawn Braithwaite Aug 2014

Constructing Family: A Typology Of Voluntary Kin, Leslie Baxter, Dawn Braithwaite

Dawn O. Braithwaite

This study explored how participants discursively rendered voluntary kin relationships sensical and legitimate. Interpretive analyses of 110 interviews revealed four main types of voluntary kin: (i) substitute family, (ii) supplemental family, (iii) convenience family, and (iv) extended family. These types were rendered sensical and legitimated by drawing on the discourse of the traditional family. Except for the extended family, three of four voluntary kin family types were justified by an attributed deficit in the blood and legal family. Because voluntary kin relationships are not based on the traditional criteria of association by blood or law, members experience them as potentially ...

Grad Students' Information Seeking: What We Need To Know, Marg Sloan, Kim Mcphee Nov 2013

Grad Students' Information Seeking: What We Need To Know, Marg Sloan, Kim Mcphee

Kim McPhee

Graduate student enrollment is increasing and academic librarians must support this diverse group. How do grad students approach research? What are their stumbling blocks? What do they need from us in order to succeed? We spoke to graduate students in the social sciences and have uncovered the answers to these questions. The results of our research have both informed and streamlined our instruction practice. Find out what our grad students wish all academic librarians knew about them!

Understanding The Complexity Of Mental Health Services Research Data, Ardis Hanson, Bruce Levin Oct 2011

Understanding The Complexity Of Mental Health Services Research Data, Ardis Hanson, Bruce Levin

Bruce Lubostsky Levin, DrPH, MPH

This chapter will examine the complexity of data that are being generated by a multitude of individuals and organizations within the various areas of mental health and substance abuse services research. It will also examine the role of technology in the complexity of services research and in accessing research databases. In addition, this chapter will identify some of the major databases in mental health services research and illustrate the complexity of collecting, organizing, and accessing information from a vast array of data collection sources.


Work Motivation And Desirable And Undesirable Personality Traits According To Indian Students And Employees, Trishita Mathew, Richard Hicks, Mark Bahr Jul 2011

Work Motivation And Desirable And Undesirable Personality Traits According To Indian Students And Employees, Trishita Mathew, Richard Hicks, Mark Bahr

Richard Hicks

The last few years have seen a salient increase in trade relations between Australia and India (Hebbani, 2008). India is Australia’s fastest growing major export market and investments between Australia and India are also increasing (Rudd, 2008). India is a lucrative market as it has a growing middle class of 300 million people with a growing purchasing power of approximately 85 billion Australian dollars (Harcourt, 2007). As trade relations between Australia and India are on the rise, understanding what motivates Indians and what they consider desirable and undesirable personality characteristics will provide a competitive edge to organizations in Australia ...

Downstream Changes In Stream Power In The Henry Mountains, Utah, William Graf Dec 2010

Downstream Changes In Stream Power In The Henry Mountains, Utah, William Graf

William L. Graf

Total stream power does not necessarily increase systematically in the downstream direction because of the conflicting influences of channel slope, width, and depth. Historical records and field data for arroyo systems of the northern Henry Mountains, south-central Utah, show that total stream power decreased in the downstream direction during a deposition period before 1896 and increased downstream during an erosion period thereafter. When total stream power declined in the downstream direction, channels were small and meandering, and the ten-year flood exceeded channel capacity, resulting in overbank deposition of sediment. After an especially erosive flood in 1896, total stream power increased ...


Locational Probability For A Dammed, Urban Stream: Salt River, Arizona, William Graf Dec 2010

Locational Probability For A Dammed, Urban Stream: Salt River, Arizona, William Graf

William L. Graf

Data from historical aerial photographs analyzed with a GIS show that river channel change on the Salt River in the Phoenix metropolitan area of central Arizona has been driven by large-scale regional flood events and local human activities. Mapping of functional surfaces such as low-flow channels, high-flow channels, islands, bars attached to channel banks, and engineered surfaces shows that during the period from 1935 to 1997, the relative areal coverage of these surfaces has changed. Flood events have caused general changes in sinuosity of the low-flow channel, but islands have remained remarkably consistent in location and size, while channel-side bars ...

Fluvial Adjustments To Spread Of Tamarisk In Colorado Plateau Region, William Graf Dec 2010

Fluvial Adjustments To Spread Of Tamarisk In Colorado Plateau Region, William Graf

William L. Graf

Tamarisk, a shrub or low tree that was artificially introduced into the American Southwest in the late 1800s, has spread throughout the Colorado Plateau region by occupying islands, sand bars, and beaches along streams. Historical photographs show that tamarisk spread from northern Arizona to the upper reaches of the Colorado and Green Rivers at a rate of about 20 km/yr. Detailed studies on the Green River in Canyonlands National Park, Utah, show that the plant has trapped and stabilized sediment, causing an average reduction in channel width of 27%. Photogrammetric analysis of historical ground photography, including photos from John ...
