No More Design By Committee: Strategies For Building Lean Mean Web Project Teams, Jennifer A. Keach, Jody C. Fagan

Jody C Fagan

Whether you are implementing a virtual reference service or redesigning the library website, today’s web projects require organizational buy-in and web skill. Even when working well, standing committees don’t always have the skills needed to create a successful website, clear authority, and resources to complete the job. This program and paper presents research study findings about web committees and teams, and proposes an alternate strategy for developing project-focused, skill-driven teams to manage your library’s next web project.

The Delphi Inquiry approach was used to find an informed group consensus on several topics. Offshore wind energy may be more acceptable if property values, tourism, and scenic vista are not significantly impacted, it reduces fossil fuel use and pollution, and if coastal communities benefit.

Turquía Y Las Revoluciones Árabes, Mehmet OZKAN 2010 Turkish National Police Academy

Turquía Y Las Revoluciones Árabes, Mehmet Ozkan

Mehmet OZKAN

En este artículo se analiza el acercamiento de Turquía a Oriente Medio y a las revoluciones árabes: ¿cuáles han sido los principales determinantes de la política exterior turca y la diplomacia en Oriente Medio?, ¿qué ha cambiado, o no ha cambiado, durante y después de la primavera árabe? y ¿cómo debe verse el debate sobre el «modelo turco»? Para ello se recorre la evolución de la política turca con respecto a Oriente Medio desde la década de los noventa hasta las revoluciones árabes.


Turkey’S ‘New’ Engagements In Africa And Asia: Scope, Content And Implications, Mehmet OZKAN 2010 Turkish National Police Academy

Turkey’S ‘New’ Engagements In Africa And Asia: Scope, Content And Implications, Mehmet Ozkan

Mehmet OZKAN

Since the AK Party assumed power in 2002, Turkish foreign policy has gone through a tremendous change both in its content and scope. The most striking and ‘new’ aspect of Turkey’s foreign policy has been toward Africa and Asia. This article examines and offers a holistic view of these developments. African opening represents a perfect convergence of civil society and state cooperation and bear fruit in political, economic and social terms in a very short time. However, the most important implication is that it aims to conceptualize a ‘new’ Africa in Turkey by overcoming the image of two separate ...

“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating….” Kofi Annan

Guided by this notion and the sociological frameworks of “critical theory” and “social justice,” we addressed specific situations in which access to, control of, and use of information is unequal, impeded, manipulated, and/or abused and thus can result in people’s disempowerment. We also explored efforts aimed at empowering those within these situations.

Many children in the child welfare system (CWS) have histories of recurrent interpersonal trauma perpetrated by caregivers early in life often referred to as complex trauma. Children in the CWS also experience a diverse range of reactions across multiple areas of functioning that are associated with such exposure. Nevertheless, few CWSs routinely screen for trauma exposure and associated symptoms beyond an initial assessment of the precipitating event. This study examines trauma histories, including complex trauma exposure (physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, domestic violence), posttraumatic stress, and behavioral and emotional problems of 2,251 youth (age 0 to 21 ...
