ItemAnalysis of Search Failures in Document Retrieval Systems: A Review(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1992) Tonta, YasarDiscusses the concept of search failure in document retrieval systems and three effectiveness measures, precision, recall, and "fallout." Four research methods--retrieval effectiveness measures, user satisfaction measures, transaction log analysis, and critical incident technique--are examined, and findings of major studies using each of the methods are summarized. ItemAnd Only Half of What You See, Part I: Discounting the Counts(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1994) Crawford, Walt ItemAnd Only Half of What You See, Part II: Skeletons in the Catalog(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1994) Crawford, WaltLast year, the "Worst Serial Title Change Awards" report included an item scolding Ziff-Davis Publishing for abruptly changing the volume numbering on Popular Photography.  After all, Ziff-Davis, with some of the most popular and longest established special-interest magazines, should know better. ItemAnd Only Half of What You See, Part III: I Heard It Through the Internet.(The Public Access Computer Systems Review, 1994) Crawford, Walt ItemAppendix A. Electronic Book Technology(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1992) Rawlins, Gregory J. E.To understand the long-term threat to publishing paper books, we need to understand some technology: computer memory, optical discs, memory cards, geosynchronous satellites, cellular radio, radio frequency modems, fiber optic cable, electronic networks, flat-panel displays, portable computers, and desktop computers. ItemArchitecture, Graphics, and the Net: A Short History of Architronic, a Peer-Reviewed E-Journal(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1996) Robison, Elwin C. ItemAre Library Users Also Computer Users? A Survey of Faculty and Implications for Services.(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1997) Meer, Vander; Fravel, Patricia; Poole, Howard; Valey, Thomas VanDescribes the results of a survey of faculty members at Western Michigan University which was conducted to explore the relationship between faculty use of university libraries and faculty use of computers. Implications for libraries are discussed, including computer databases, faculty assistance, collaboration with computing staff, and marketing of electronic services. ItemArtificial Intelligence, Libraries, and Information Retrieval(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1992) Halber, Martin ItemThe Canadian Network for the Advancement of Research, Industry, and Education (CANARIE)(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1992) Marcos, Silva ItemCataloging Internet Resources(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1993) Caplan, PriscillaLet Archie Do It? How do we accommodate networked electronic information when our cataloging rules are designed to describe physical items owned by and residing in libraries? How do we provide access to that information? Do we let Archie do it instead? Questions like these must be addressed before we can move into the future and provide our patrons with information the way they are coming to expect it. It isn't sufficient that we simply debate these issues at conferences and write about them in the literature. Action is needed, and well-established rules and practices must be changed. All of that is easy to agree with, but deciding how to change established rules and practices is another matter, not to mention actually revising them. ItemA CD-ROM LAN Utilizing the CBIS CD Connection System(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1990) Smith, SteveLike many libraries, the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library of the University of Alaska at Fairbanks has been exploring ways to expand access to the growing number of commercial CD-ROM database products, which are supplementing and replacing traditional print and online reference sources in libraries. Over the past few years, we have increased the number of CD-ROM titles in our collection; however, due to the popularity of these databases, the queues to use them also grew, which resulted in patron frustration. This paper will briefly chronicle our library's implementation of a local area network (LAN), which is primarily used to provide multiple-user access to CD-ROM databases. ItemThe Challenge of Multimedia Networking(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1993) Halbert, MartinThere is no question that computer applications such as word processing, electronic mail, and desktop publishing have changed the way people work. These computer applications have enhanced users' capacity for communication and have improved their productivity. The success of these applications has prompted both vendors and researchers to continue to seek new ways to further advance the information technology revolution. Enter the latest innovation: networked multimedia systems ItemThe Committee on Institutional Cooperation Electronic Journals Collection (CIC-EJC): A New Model for Library Management of Scholarly Journals Published on the Internet(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1996) MacEwan, Bonnie; Geffner, Mira ItemCompetencies for Electronic Information Services(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1993) Corbin, JohnDefines electronic information services and the competencies required for librarians providing them. Highlights include personal characteristics; basic skills, including computer use, navigation, and word processing; general knowledge, including information storage and retrieval, copyright, and ethics; and education, including formal education, on-the-job training, self-education, apprenticeship, and continuing education. ItemThe Computer Science Technical Report (CS-TR) Project: A Pioneering Digital Library Project Viewed from a Library Perspective(The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1996) Anderson, Greg; Lasher, Rebecca; Reich, VickyDescribes the Computer Science Technical Report Project, one of the earliest investigations into the system engineering of digital libraries which pioneered multiinstitutional collaborative research into technical, social, and legal issues related to the development and implementation of a large, heterogeneous, distributed digital library. ItemComputer-Assisted Instruction for Music | Uniform Titles(Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1990) Fling, R. MichaelDespite its lack of relevance to many of the problems that beset the world, music, by its global appeal in many styles and forms has achieved status as a subject for both formal and informal study. Although it is one of the most widely loved and practiced of the arts, it remains one of the most obscure because of a technical language that sets it apart from literature and the visual arts. Yet its language is an international one. English-speaking musicians can play from French, German, or Soviet editions even though they may be unable to read the title pages. Recordings may set forth a composition's title or text in assorted tongues depending upon where the discs are produced or marketed, even though the musical content is unchanged. Richard Wagner's opera Goetterdaemmerung is just as likely to be identified as Twilight of the Gods or Crepuscule des Dieux.
