Campus Chaplains: Cult Training and Perceptions

Campus Chaplains: Cult Training and Perceptions

Date: June 2004
Creator: Elleven, Russell K.; Greenhaw, Kimberly J. & Allen, Jeff M.
Description: Abstract: This article examines the perception of 43 college chaplains across the United States with regard to cult training and perceptions of college and university cult activity. Campus chaplains are in a unique and challenging position on college campuses to assist students and confront cult issues. The results of the survey indicated that most campus chaplains have had surprisingly little formal training with regard to cultic groups and often perceive faculty, staff, and students as requiring additional education regarding cult issues on college campuses.

The Challenges of Training and Retraining Mature Learners

The Challenges of Training and Retraining Mature Learners

Date: 1998
Creator: Ennis-Cole, Demetria & Allen, Jeff M.
Description: This article discusses challenges in training mature learners. Abstract: By 2005, older workers are projected to comprise 20 percent of the workforce (Barber, Crouch, & Merker, 1992). AT&T, General Electric, McDonalds, Traveler's Insurance, and Days Inn are just a few of the many companies that have already implemented older worker training programs to better utilize this growing older workforce (Hale, 1990; McNaught, 1994). Moloney and Paul (1992) suggest that updating older workers' skills cost less than hiring new graduates. Inter-generational secondary classroom and other retraining facilities must begin to prepare for the expected workforce of the future. In addition, vocational special needs educators must be aware of the special needs of the older learner associated with the aging process. This article explores the aging process from physical, cognitive, social and psychological perspectives, accommodations for age related changes, retraining mature learners, adaptations of the classroom environment, training technology issues, and successful corporate retraining programs to better prepare vocational educators for the workforce of the new millennium.

Chinese Information Retrieval Using Lemur: NTCIR-5 CIR Experiments at UNT

Chinese Information Retrieval Using Lemur: NTCIR-5 CIR Experiments at UNT

Date: December 2005
Creator: Chen, Jiangping; Li, Rowena & Li, Fei
Description: This paper discusses Chinese information retrieval using Lemur. Abstract: This paper describes our participation in NTCIR-5 Chinese Information Retrieval (IR) evaluation. The main purpose is to evaluate Lemur, a freely available information retrieval toolkit. Our results showed that Lemur could provide above average performance on most of the runs. We also compared manual queries vs. automatic queries for Chinese IR. The results show that manually generated queries did not have much effect on IR performance. More analysis will be carried out to discover causes behind hard topics and ways to improve the overall retrieval performance.

Chinese QA and CLQA: NTCIR-5 QA Experiments at UNT

Chinese QA and CLQA: NTCIR-5 QA Experiments at UNT

Date: December 2005
Creator: Chen, Jiangping; Li, Rowena; Yu, Ping; Ge, He; Chin, Pok; Li, Fei et al.
Description: Abstract: This paper describes our participation in the NTCIR-5 CLQA task. Three runs were officially submitted for three subtasks: Chinese Question Answering, English-Chinese Question Answering, and Chinese-English Question Answering. We expanded their TREC experimental QA system EagleQA this year to include Chinese QA and Cross-Language QA capabilities. Various information retrieval and natural language processing tools were incorporated with their home-built programs such as Answer Type Identification, Sentence Extraction, and Answer Finding to find answers to the test questions. Future development will focus on investigating effective question translation and answer finding solutions.

The CIMI Profile: Z39.50 Application Profile for Cultural Heritage Information

The CIMI Profile: Z39.50 Application Profile for Cultural Heritage Information

Date: March 1, 1998
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document describes an application profile for the use of 'ANSI/NISO Z39.50-1995, Information Retrieval (Z39.50): Application Service Definition and Protocol Specification' [10] for search and retrieval of cultural heritage information. This profile is named the CIMI Profile, where CIMI refers to the Consortium for the Computer Interchange of Museum Information. Cultural heritage information includes resources covering art, architecture, cultural history, and natural history. The CIMI Profile includes specifications for using Z39.50 in this application, although specifications in the Profile, such as the CIMI-1 Attribute Set for searching museum information, may have utility outside of Z39.50 implementations.

CIMI's Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed: Search and Retrieval of Distributed Cultural Heritage Information

CIMI's Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed: Search and Retrieval of Distributed Cultural Heritage Information

Date: January 2, 1998
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This paper discusses the Consortium for the Computer Interchange of Museum Information (CIMI)'s international effort to provide distributed search and retrieval of cultural heritage information. A primary aspect of CIMI's work utilizes ANSI/NISO Z39.50-1995, and American National Standard protocol for information retrieval. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently approved Z39.50 as ISO 23950. CIMI chose Z39.50 to enable uniform access to existing and emerging digital collections and the vast repositories of cultural heritage information resources. These resources include a variety of physical and digital objects--physical artifacts and digital derivatives of those artifacts, descriptive records designed for collection management, bibliographic records, full-text documents, online tools such as thesauri and authoritative lists of artists' names, and more. CIMI's application Z39.50 in the networked cultural heritage information environment is breaking new ground in distributed and integrated access to textual and non-textual digital collections.

Competencies Required for Digital Curation: An Analysis of Job Advertisements

Competencies Required for Digital Curation: An Analysis of Job Advertisements

Date: 2013
Creator: Kim, Jeonghyun; Warga, Edward & Moen, William E.
Description: Article discussing competencies required for digital curation. Abstract: With digital curation's increasingly important role in the fast-paced and data-intensive information environment, there is a need to identify a set of competencies for professionals in this growing field. As part of a curriculum development project funded by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, a total of 173 job advertisements posted between October 2011 and April 2012 were collected from various sources to take into account varying types of professionals in the field of digital curation across North America. Position title, institution types and location, educational background, experience, knowledge and skills, and duties were examined and analyzed. The results of the analysis show that digital curation jobs are characterized by a complex interplay of various skills and knowledge. The findings of this study present emerging requirements for a qualified workforce in the field of digital curation.
