Abstract for the AMS Southwest Chapter’s April 11, 2015 Spring Conference

Description: This is an abstract for a presentation that was given at the American Musicological Society Southwest Chapter's Spring Conference on April 11th, 2015. The presentation was given alongside a poster display. This abstract highlights Serge Jaroff's Don Cossack Choir, which was founded at a Turkish concentration camp in 1921, and went on to perform around the world. This abstract gives details on the history of the choir and the type of concerts that Jaroff gave. In addition, it explains the lack of scholarly attention that Jaroff and his choir have received.

The Reaction Kinetics of Amino Radicals with Sulfur Dioxide

Description: Abstract: Application of the laser photolysis–laser-induced fluorescence method to the reaction NH2 + SO2 in argon bath gas yields pressure-dependent, third-order kinetics which may be summarized as 𝑘 = (1.49 ± 0.15) × 10^−31 (𝑇/298 K) − 0.83 cm^6 molecule^−2 s^−1 over 292 – 555 K, where the uncertainty is the 95% confidence interval and includes possible systematic errors.The quenching of vibrationally excited NH2 is consistent with a high-pressure limit for NH2 + SO2 of (1.62 ± 0.25) × 10^−11 cm^3 molecule^−1 s^−1 over the temperature range 295–505 K, where again the 95% confidence interval is shown. Abinitio analysis yields a H2N – SO2 dissociation enthalpy of 73.5 kJmol−1, and comparison with RRKM theory and the exponential down model for energy transfer yields ⟨Δ𝐸⟩down = 350 cm^−1 for Ar at room temperature.

SQL Data Analysis Procedures to Create Aggregate and Candidate Record Groups on Sample of Decomposed MARC Records Phase 1 Testing

Description: This document describes the data analysis procedures developed to create the Aggregate and Candidate Record Groups using SQL statements. This is the preliminary version of these procedures tested and validated on a sample of decomposed MARC records. (For a description of how the MARC records were decomposed see the Z-Interop document, Decomposing MARC 21 Records for Analysis. A subsequent version may be necessary as the authors move to the procedures for the entire file of decomposed records.

Data Normalization Procedures on Decomposed MARC 21 Records

Description: In this document, the authors present some aspects of data normalization of the decomposed records to improve the results of analysis. The data normalization processes use pattern-matching techniques to eliminate and/or generalize anomalous characters and terms. Since the unit of analysis in preparing the test dataset of 400,000 MARC 21 records is a "word," there was a need for data normalization to provide reliability in the subsequent analysis.

Indexing Guidelines to Support Z39.50 Profile Searches

Description: This document provides guidelines for indexing MARC 21 records to support a set of searches using Z39.50. The Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project (Z-Interop) uses these guidelines to index the 400,000 MARC 21 records that comprise the Z-Interop reference implementation of the Z39.50 server and online catalog.

Z-Interop Interoperability Testing Policies and Procedures: Phase 1 Testing

Description: This document provides an overview and the details of policies and procedures of the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project (referred to as Z-Interop). Specifically, the document lays out the responsibilities and obligations of the Z-Interop testbed and the organizations that participate in interoperability testing. For purposes of this document, Z-Interop staff refers to all members of the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project. Z-Interop participant refers to an individual or organization who tests its Z39.50 client or Z39.50 server through the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed.

Decomposing MARC 21 Records for Analysis

Description: This document discusses decomposing MARC 21 records for analysis. To prepare the test dataset of the 1% sample of MARC 21 records from the WorldCat database for use in the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed, the authors need to be able to efficiently analyze the records to determine relevant records to be returned for a set of test searches. The first step in that analysis is to determine the occurrence of test search terms in specific records. This document describes the general approach for this analysis and identifies specifications for the analysis.

Procedures for Issuing Test Searches from Z-Interop Testbed Participant's Z-Client: Phase 1

Description: This document describes the procedures that participants in the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed (Z-Interop Participant) are to use when testing Z39.50 client (Z-client) applications. The testing of a Z-Interop reference implementation Z39.50 server. Specifically, the attribute combination and other query components (e.g., Boolean operators) are reviewed, and a report of the results will be prepared for each Z-Interop participant.

No Longer Under Our Control: The Nature and Role of Standards in the 21st Century Library

Description: This lecture script examines the nature and role of standards for the emerging 21st century library. Given the dynamic character of the networked environment, when are standards appropriate and how can they be developed in a manner consistent with the volatility of information technologies and changing library services? What are the roles and responsibilities of standards developing organizations, technology vendors, content creators, and librarians for standards? Do local practices of libraries threaten standards-based resource sharing and resource access technologies? Can local needs be balanced with broader library community responsibilities, and how do standards affect this balance? The speaker's assumption is that adherence to standards has never been more critical, yet his implementation experience with Z39.50 and MARC suggests that the commitment to national and international standards by librarians, technology vendors, and content creators are often an example of good intentions rather than actual practice. This standards disconnect threatens the emerging 21st century library's ability to deliver fundamental services in appropriate ways to their users.
