Encouraging Adoption, Adaptation, and Creation of OER at UNT

Description: To complement UNT’s limited inclusive-access program, the UNT Libraries has taken the lead on two programs designed to encourage adoption, adaptation, and creation of OER at UNT. The first, OER Summer Grants, provides research funding for faculty who adopt an open textbook, modify an existing one, or create new supplemental material. The second, UNT Open Texts, is a partnership with the UNT Press that provides research funding for faculty who author a new open textbook to be published jointly by the Press and Libraries. These specifics of these programs will be presented.

Cataloging for Makerspaces

Description: Although many school libraries include makerspaces, their catalogs do not always provide information about makerspace resources. Cataloging these resources can benefit school library users and staff in several ways. This article argues that how cataloging increases the visibility of the makerspace collection not only by making the items accessible for catalog users, but also facilitating browsing by collocating similar resources.

Mapping the Inner Monstress

Description: This presentation was delivered as part of a literary conference on "Monstrosity and the Topography of Fear" sponsored by the Society for Comparative Literature and the Arts. It argues that the Alex Garland film Annihilation (2018) and the Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda comic series Monstress (2015) both enact post-human dramas of colonization by the Other, figured as both alien and natural forces, but leave room for the possibility of "hybrid bodies" that allow for integration of the human and the non-human, and a mutual agency that might be productive of new ways of existing and acting in harmony.

Haints & Haunts: Spiritual Correspondence in Harrow County

Description: This presentation was delivered as part of a panel on "Comics and the Epistolary Tradition" at the 2018. Popular Culture Association National Conference. The panel was sponsored by the Comics & Comic Art section of the PCA.

Leveraging Machine Learning to Extract Content-Rich Publications from Web Archives

Description: Poster presented at the 2019 Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (TCDL-2019). This poster discusses about ways of Identifying content-rich documents among the wealth of materials available via web archives. This research attempts to answers the following two research questions: 1. What role do web-published documents and publications play in developing collections in the broad categories of institutional repositories, state government documents, and publications from the federal government? 2. What are the characteristics of web-published documents and publications that help content selectors identify them for inclusion in their local collection

Rate Coefficient Measurements and Theoretical Analysis of the OH + (E)‑CF₃CH==CHCF₃ Reaction

Description: Rate coefficients, k, for the gas-phase reaction of the OH radical with (E)CF3CHCHCF3 ((E)-1,1,1,4,4,4-hexafluoro-2-butene, HFO-1336mzz(E)) were measured over a range of temperatures (211−374 K) and bath gas pressures (20−300 Torr; He, N2) using a pulsed laser photolysis−laser-induced fluorescence (PLP−LIF) technique. k1(T) was independent of pressure over this range of conditions with k1(296 K) = (1.31 ± 0.15) × 10−13 cm3 molecule−1 s−1 and k1(T) = (6.94 ± 0.80) × 10−13exp[−(496 ± 10)/T] cm 3 molecule−1 s−1, where the uncertainties are 2σ, and the pre-exponential term includes estimated systematic error. Rate coefficients for the OD reaction were also determined over a range of temperatures (262−374 K) at 100 Torr (He). The OD rate coefficients were ∼15% greater than the OH values and showed similar temperature dependent behavior with k2(T) = (7.52 ± 0.44) × 10−13exp[−(476 ± 20)/T] and k2(296 K) = (1.53 ± 0.15) × 10−13 cm3 molecule−1 s−1. The rate coefficients for reaction 1 were also measured using a relative rate technique between 296 and 375 K with k1(296 K) measured to be (1.22 ± 0.1) × 10−13 cm3 molecule−1 s−1, in agreement with the PLP−LIF results. In addition, the 296 K rate coefficient for the O3 +( E)CF3CHCHCF3 reaction was determined to be <5.2 × 10−22 cm3 molecule−1 s−1. A theoretical computational analysis is presented to interpret the observed positive temperature dependence for the addition reaction and the significant decrease in OH reactivity compared to the (Z)-CF3CHCHCF3 stereoisomer reaction. The estimated atmospheric lifetime of (E)-CF3CH CHCF3, due to loss by reaction with OH, is estimated to be ∼90 days, while the actual lifetime will depend on the location and season of its emission. Infrared absorption spectra of (E)-CF3CHCHCF3 were measured and used to estimate the 100 year time horizon global warming potentials (GWP) of 32 (atmospherically well-mixed) and 14 ...

Facilitating User Access through the Extraction of Documents from Digital Archives

Description: Poster presented at the 2019 Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (TCDL-2019). This poster discusses about the University of North Texas' archive of government websites known as the CyberCemetery. The UNT Libraries have begun to extract documents embedded within the vast collection of web archives. Many of these documents include reports and transcripts from the various committees and agencies found in the collections. Through this project, the UNT Digital Library expands its role as a steward of digital resources in addition to making information easier to find.

Experimental and Computational Studies of the Kinetics of the Reaction of Hydrogen Atoms with Carbon Disulfide

Description: Article discussing an investigation of the reaction of H + CS₂ products. The reaction was found to be pressure dependent and in the fall-off region or near the low pressure limit. Transition state theory yields an estimate for the high-pressure limit of addition over 290–300 K of 1.3 × 10−9 exp( −7.2 kJ mol −1 /RT) cm3 molecule −1 s −1. Uncertainties are discussed in the text.

Student Use of Interactive Whiteboards in an Academic Library Setting

Description: The interactive whiteboard is a learning technology that was introduced in the early 1990s, with the most commonly known product being the SMART Board from SMART Technologies. The main market for interactive whiteboards has been elementary schools, but other markets include secondary schools, higher education, libraries, and businesses. Librarians use the technology to enhance active learning and collaboration in instruction sessions. In January 2011, the University of North Texas Libraries installed two Hitachi StarBoards in the new Collaboration and Learning Commons of the Eagle Commons Library for patrons to use independently. Casual observation suggests that although the StarBoards are popular, the patrons are making minimal use of their interactive functions. The authors propose a study of independent patron use of interactive whiteboards in an academic library setting.

The C₂H₂ + NO₂ Reaction: Implications for High Pressure Oxidation of C₂H₂/NOx Mixtures

Description: Article discussing an experimental and kinetic modeling study of the interaction between C₂H₂ and NOx under flow reactor conditions in the intermediate temperature range (600–900 K), high pressure (50–60 bar), and for stoichiometries ranging from reducing to strongly oxidizing. The results show that presence of NOx serves both to sensitize and inhibit oxidation of C₂H₂.

Enhancing the Discovery of Tabletop Games

Description: Collections of three-dimensional materials may not be discoverable to library users if they lack adequate metadata. Discovery of these collections may be enhanced through the application of relevant cataloging standards and con-trolled vocabularies. This paper outlines how librarians at the University of North Texas Libraries used these strategies to increase access to a large collection of tabletop games.

Further Analysis on Solubility Measurement and Thermodynamic Modeling of Benzoic Acid in Monosolvents and Binary Mixtures

Description: Article discussing further analyses of the recent report (by Sandeepa et al.) on the solubility of benzoic acid in six monosolvents (i.e. tributyl phosphate, diacetone alcohol, methyl-n-propyl ketone, methyl acetate, amyl acetate, and isooctane) and five binary systems (i.e. ethanol + hexane, isopropyl alcohol + hexane and chloroform + hexane, acetone + hexane, and acetone + water) along with some numerical analyses. The reported calculations have been reanalyzed based on combined nearly ideal binary solvent/Redlich-Kister, the modified Wilson model, general single model, Jouyban–Acree model and Jouyban–Acree–van’t Hoff model. The investigated models provide good estimation of the solubility behavior of benzoic acid in the binary solvent mixtures at various temperatures.
