A Publicist Discource As A Conceptual Linguistic Unit Forming The Base Of The Text, Dilfuza Teshabaeva, Shaxodat Usmonova Oct 2019

A Publicist Discource As A Conceptual Linguistic Unit Forming The Base Of The Text, Dilfuza Teshabaeva, Shaxodat Usmonova

Philology Matters

The article discusses the features of a publicistic style, justifies the standard of this style, which is based on the transfer of the socially significant information. Publicistic discourse was also analyzed as a conceptual unit of the text. The structure of speech in a journalistic text also depends on the consistency of the linguistic units, which contain conceptual and evaluative units. One of the main features of the press is a trend towards social assessment. It is obvious that newspaper language is not intended simply to describe objects and events by their nature, but to give them a certain assessment ...

Opportunities With Archives West: How A Small Academic Archive Benefits From Membership, Becca Evans Aug 2019

Opportunities With Archives West: How A Small Academic Archive Benefits From Membership, Becca Evans

OLA Quarterly

Like many smaller academic organizations, Southern Oregon University’s Hannon Library Special Collections and University Archives (SPEC) operates with a limited budget and minimal staffing. Membership to Archives West provides Hannon Library with a framework to enhance discovery, improve collection management, and promote growth and sustainability. The additional resources provided by Archives West and the Orbis Cascade Alliance allow SPEC to increase capacity and improve services to students and community researchers. The underlying framework consists of training sessions, best practices documents, affordable access to ArchivesSpace, and system support. While improved discoverability is often the primary motivator, libraries should not overlook ...


Surveying Oregon’S Digital Heritage Collections, Beth Dehn Aug 2019

Surveying Oregon’S Digital Heritage Collections, Beth Dehn

OLA Quarterly

In 2018, the Oregon Heritage Commission conducted a survey of heritage organizations across the state to capture data regarding digitization efforts. The goal of the survey was to collect a baseline of information on the types of digital collections in Oregon, existing digital infrastructure, and a level of interest in collaborative options. Data gathered was shared with our partners, including the Orbis Cascade Alliance, to aid their work in considering how to create an on-ramp for smaller collections to enter into the Digital Public Library of America. This work followed the 2013 Environmental Scan of Digital Collections conducted by the ...


Digital Repositories And Data Harvests Aug 2019

Digital Repositories And Data Harvests

OLA Quarterly

Today it’s hard to imagine life without a smartphone, but broadcast television, travel to the moon, MARC records, personal computers, email, the Internet, online library catalogs, cell phones, video on demand, virtual reality, and digital archive collections all came about in one human generation.

Throughout that generation of disruptive and innovative technologies, librarians have served the public good by providing the conceptual skills to organize and describe information and provide or facilitate access to it. Moreover, libraries, through cooperatives and information sharing agreements, have made possible the construction of massive data systems that serve our nation’s needs with ...

Dpla In The Pacific Northwest: The Orbis Cascade Alliance Case, Mark Dahl, Zachariah Selley Aug 2019

Dpla In The Pacific Northwest: The Orbis Cascade Alliance Case, Mark Dahl, Zachariah Selley

OLA Quarterly

The Orbis Cascade Alliance’s journey to becoming a Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) Service Hub illustrates some important challenges and opportunities in the world of digital cultural heritage work. Released in 2013, DPLA brings together cultural heritage content on a national digital platform. Since 2014 the Alliance has moved towards DPLA membership as part of a broader strategy to aggregate its members’ digital cultural heritage collections and make them more discoverable. Competing strategies for making content discoverable, limited financial resources, and differences in missions between institutions have been obstacles as the Alliance has worked towards aggregated collections and ...


Building And Navigating A Path To Collaborative Digital Platforms For Oregon’S Libraries: There Are Many Ways To Get There, Arlene Weible, Ross Fuqua Aug 2019

Building And Navigating A Path To Collaborative Digital Platforms For Oregon’S Libraries: There Are Many Ways To Get There, Arlene Weible, Ross Fuqua

OLA Quarterly

Over the last several years, the State Library of Oregon has explored options and supported a variety of projects to promote collaboration among libraries to build and sustain Oregon digital collections. Activities such as hosted meetings, grant funding, and pilot projects have identified both opportunities and roadblocks to collaboration, especially for Oregon’s small public libraries. A clear and distinct path has proven to be somewhat elusive, and the journey itself has demonstrated that a one-size-fits-all solution is unlikely to emerge soon. Multiple pathways to a more robust digital collections platform may not only be inevitable but preferable, given the ...

“Philosophical Treatises On Life And Death”:Newspaper Coverage Of A Controversial Brain Death Case, Khadija Ejaz Apr 2019

“Philosophical Treatises On Life And Death”:Newspaper Coverage Of A Controversial Brain Death Case, Khadija Ejaz

Theses and Dissertations

The central concern of this multi-method research project was to investigate newspaper coverage of the controversial brain death case of Jahi McMath. This represents the first study of sense-making of the case in the news media, positioning it at the intersection of science communication and critical qualitative inquiry. First, framing theory was used to guide a textual analysis of 81 newspaper articles from high-circulation newspapers in California. This revealed four frames that first created uncertainty about brain death, thereby permitting two competing frames of Jahi being alive and also being dead to co-exist before merging into a frame that further ...
