New York City’s Public Libraries, 1754-1911
On May 11, 1911, the New York Public Library opened its “marble palace for book lovers” on Fifth Avenue and Forty-second Street. This was the city’s first public library in the modern sense, a tax-supported, circulating collection free to every citizen. Since before the Revolution, however, New York’s reading publics had access to a range of “public libraries” as the term was understood by contemporaries. In its most basic sense a public library in the eighteenth and most of the nineteenth century simply meant a shared collection of books that was available to the general public and promoted the public good. From the founding in 1754 of the New York Society Library up to 1911, public libraries took a variety of forms. Some of them were free, charitable institutions, while others required a membership or an annual subscription. Some, such as the Biblical Library of the American Bible Society, were highly specialized; others, like the Astor Library, developed extensive, inclusive collections. What all the public libraries of this period held in common, at least ostensibly, was the conviction that good books helped ensure a productive, virtuous, orderly republic—that good reading promoted the public good._x000B__x000B_Tom Glynn’s vivid, deeply researched history of New York City’s public libraries over the course of more than a century and a half illuminates how the public and private functions of reading changed over time and how shared collections of books could serve both public and private ends. Reading Publics examines how books and reading helped construct social identities and how print functioned within and across groups, including but not limited to socio-economic classes. The author offers an accessible while scholarly exploration of how republican and liberal values, shifting understandings of public and private, and the debate over fiction influenced the development and character of New York City’s public libraries in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries._x000B__x000B_Reading Publics is an important contribution to the social and cultural history of New York City that firmly places the city’s early public libraries within the history of reading and print culture in the United States._x000B_
Why Occupations Differ in Their Embrace of New Technology
Analyse intégrée dans un contexte analogique et numérique
Les documents produits ou reçus par les organisations, qu’ils soient sous forme analogique ou numérique, sont placés dans des dossiers. Ce premier niveau de classement sert généralement de base à la classification, d’où l’importance de le gérer avec soin. C’est dans cet esprit que le présent ouvrage, faisant suite à la Typologie des documents des organisations, propose une analyse détaillée des principaux dossiers de gestion d'une organisation, soit : • les dossiers constitutifs • les dossiers de réunion • les dossiers de direction • les dossiers des relations de travail • les dossiers des ressources humaines • les dossiers des communications • les dossiers des ressources financières • les dossiers juridiques • les dossiers des ressources mobilières et immobilières Les auteures définissent le contexte de création de ceux-ci, justifie leur rôle, analyse leur contenu, propose des métadonnées et indique le temps à allouer à leur conservation. L'étudiant en archivistique, l'archiviste et le gestionnaire de documents y trouveront un outil indispensable de traitement de l'information.
This collection seeks to define the emerging field of "ubiquitous learning," an educational paradigm made possible in part by the omnipresence of digital media, supporting new modes of knowledge creation, communication, and access. As new media empower practically anyone to produce and disseminate knowledge, learning can now occur at any time and any place. The essays in this volume present key concepts, contextual factors, and current practices in this new field._x000B__x000B_Contributors are Simon J. Appleford, Patrick Berry, Jack Brighton, Bertram C.
