What is the status of nk

missile launch against japan?

It seems that North Korea launch a missile again

After North Korea launched a Daipodong missile

last month, NK is perceived to proceed to an additional

test launch. Korea, US and Japan enter into an alert

state, and prepare for a joint response policy. Korea

estimates that the additional launch will be on 09/05.

Japan estimates that NK’s missile range is short.US

information says that there is no sign of launch yet.

CS Teaching Center (CSTC) Communication

  • Instead of building large, expensive multimedia packages, that become obsolete and are difficult to re-use, concentrate on small knowledge units.

  • Learners benefit from having well-crafted modules that have been reviewed and tested.

  • Use digital libraries to build a powerful base of support for learners, upon which a variety of courses, self-study tutorials & reference resources can be built.

  • ACM support led to Journal of Educational Resources in Computing (JERIC), accessible from www.cstc.org

Digital library benefits low margin high use l.jpg
Digital Library Benefits:http://scholar.lib.vt.edu/theses/available/etd-2227102539751141/Low margin, high use

  • Incorporate ETDs with other digital library activities

    • Ejournals, online class materials, digital images, etc.

    • Additional equipment, staff may not be necessary

      • http://scholar.lib.vt.edu/theses/data/setup.html

  • Use VT programs, scripts, etc.

    • http://scholar.lib.vt.edu/ETD-db/

  • Online accesses vs. circulation of copies

    • 1990-1994, average circulation per copy per year:

    • 2.2 for theses, 3.2 for dissertations

    For professional societieshttp://scholar.lib.vt.edu/theses/available/etd-2227102539751141/

    • Like “writing across the curriculum”, e.g., Chemical Markup Language, MathML, …

    • Besides writing: computing/communications, information literacy, personal digital library management, tool use, research methods, collaboration, archiving/preservation

    • Data sets, communities of users of them

    • Classification systems / browsing / searching

    Relationship with publishers l.jpg
    Relationship with publishershttp://scholar.lib.vt.edu/theses/available/etd-2227102539751141/

    • Concern of faculty and students that still wish to publish books or journal articles, voiced: campus, Chronicle, NPR, Times

    • Solution: Approval Form gives students, faculty choices on access, when to change access condition; use IPR controls in DL

    • Solution: by case, work with publishers and publisher associations to increase access

      • AAP, AAUP

      • AAAS, ACM, ACS, Elsevier, ...


    Some responses from publishers l.jpg
