Extractions: for Schools and Libraries Satellite Videoconference, June 3, 1997 The FCC's May 7 ruling makes provisions for discounts on basic telecommunications services, Internet services, and internal connections necessary to access networked resources. The discounts will be available to elementary schools, secondary schools and public libraries. These discounts will range from 20% to 90% and are based on two factors: comparative economic disadvantage and high cost/rurality. Funding available nationwide to support the discounts will have an annual cap of $2.25 billion. Additional amounts may be available in states which elect to create a supplemental fund. Funds will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. (Note: when available funds are depleted to $250 million, rules of priority will take effect and subsequent distribution of funds will be in order of need, i.e. high-cost/ high poverty areas first). Under this program, libraries will pay the discounted price and the difference will be distributed directly to the vendor/service provider from the universal service fund. Funding will be available January 1, 1998. Universal Service discounts are available for any telecommunications services. This includes internal connections and equipment necessary for carrying data (e.g. hubs, routers, servers), as well as monthly telecommunications services (phone and datacomm services, Internet service provider fees). Computers, software, training, and purchase of content (e.g. databases, electronic resources) are excluded from eligibility. Services received under the discount must be used for educational purposes only and may not be resold.
Extractions: Libraries are the most likely place where one can find specific information in an easily accessible, physical location. The social nature of libraries as institutions where like-minded individuals gather and the strong social support that libraries traditionally receive from the general public have been factors in their on-going presence in society. Libraries are essentially democratic and the goal of a library is the improvement of society by helping the individual to understand himself or herself and the world as a whole. Full Story Saskatchewan libraries
Extractions: With the emergence of the information age and a knowledge-based society, we are witnessing radical social change. Social institutions - universities, record companies, businesses, etc. - have had to transform themselves and their services in an effort to meet changing social needs. It has been no less of a challenge for libraries. Technology has revolutionized the way information is created, stored, and disseminated and information technology has been the engine of social change, a development that still has many years to maximize its impact. Eventually, from a utopian perspective, the world will become a networked, connected, and wired world of individuals and organizations maximizing their use of information technology in an informed, educated and empowered manner. While managing the impact of information technology, libraries continue to play their historical role in the formation of informed, educated and capable members of society. Educated and skilled access to electronic information resources is one means of coping with information overload - and libraries play a fundamental role in the acquisition of appropriate search skills - but the staggering amount of information available today is problematic. Patrons need help with traditional print collections as societal levels of literacy diminish but also need assistance with the new forms of literacy demanded by information technology.

Extractions: Project Videonet Survey of Videoconferencing Use Among U.S. Public Libraries Survey Conducted - March and April, 2003 Findings Published July 2003 I. Background Over the past five years, videoconferencing has become an important communications technology in many American public libraries. However, many of those libraries, at least in California, have said they could benefit from more information regarding how their peer institutions are purchasing, using, and promoting the technology. In response, Project Videonet recently surveyed nearly 200 equipped public libraries across the country regarding a variety of videoconferencing issues. After analyzing survey findings, we are pleased to publish this "snapshot" of how public libraries are using videoconferencing to better serve their patrons and support their staffs. Major findings, conclusions, and recommendations are below. For more details, please see: II. Major Findings Most public libraries purchase videoconferencing equipment with the help of grant funding or other assistance. Some receive equipment as part of a statewide or regional deployment.
Extractions: The 1998 ALA Midwinter Meeting in New Orleans, LA marks the beginning of the five year anniversary of the Association of Research Libraries' (ARL) North American Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery (NAILDD) Project At the beginning of 1998, over 70 for-profit and not-for-profit organizations and project participate in the NAILDD Project's Developers/Implementors Group (DIG) and/or the ILL Protocol Implementors Group (IPIG). The DIG is the vehicle by which the NAILDD Project seeks to facilitate collaboration between libraries and a broad constituency of private sector organizations. The DIG is an effort on ARL's part to be proactive consumers. The DIG serves as a forum in which to communicate the library needs to the vendors who could potentially offer these services. ARL seeks a healthy competition in the ILL/DD marketplace and thus encourages all vendors to participate. The IPIG was formed in late 1995 to expedite implementation of the international standard for ILL communication. This status report highlights and salutes the responsiveness of some of the more active DIG and IPIG members to the NAILDD Project's technical priorities. The sustained commitment of these organizations and the resources invested to achieve the Project's goals are recognized as key contributions to the future success of library programs and services.
Extractions: What are the characteristics of ILL/DD operations in the ten libraries with the lowest unit costs, the ten with the highest fill rates, or the ten with the fastest turnaround times? How do these high-performing operations differ from the other research library participants? High-Performing Borrowing Operations Nineteen other research libraries ranked in the top ten for a single borrowing performance measure. Thus, a total of 25 research libraries ranked in the top ten for one or more borrowing performance measures. These high-performing borrowing operations share a number of characteristics. User-Initiated Ordering A majority of the top-performing borrowing operations offer electronic user-initiated ordering, either via statewide systems such as OhioLINK or through locally-developed electronic order forms. Systems that pass electronic patron request forms directly to the potential lender or into national messaging systems eliminate the need for ILL staff involvement in these initial steps of the borrowing process. Staff costs represent two-thirds of the borrowing unit cost, so by increasing user-initiated ordering staff costs are lessened and the borrowing unit cost is thus lowered. Maximizing Technology Many of the high-performing borrowing operations use a single ILL messaging system. Workflow and procedures are streamlined when only one system is used, resulting in faster turnaround time and lower unit costs.

Extractions: Chapter 1. OpenGL on Silicon Graphics Systems Prev Next Silicon Graphics systems allow you to write OpenGL applications that are portable and run well across the Silicon Graphics workstation product line. This chapter introduces the basic issues you need to know about if you want to write an OpenGL application for Silicon Graphics systems. The chapter contains the following topics, which are all discussed in more detail elsewhere in this guide: OpenGL is a window-system-independent graphics library. The platform's window system determines where and how the OpenGL application is displayed and how events (user input or other interruptions) are handled. Currently, OpenGL is available for the X Window System, for OS/2, for Windows NT, and for Windows95. If you intend your application to run under several window systems, the application's OpenGL calls can remain unchanged, but window system calls are different for each window system. Note: If you plan to run an application under different window systems, isolate the windowing code to minimize the number of files that must be special for each system.

Extractions: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The entire report, and a list of participants, can be found at http://www.english.upenn.edu/~traister/senseofplace2.html . A follow-up is summarized at http://www.english.upenn.edu/~traister/senseofplace3.html More than seventy leaders from Philadelphia's culture sector met at the Pennsylvania Convention Center for a Future Search conference entitled "A Sense of Place: Creating a Collective Vision for the Cultural Heritage Resources of the Philadelphia Region." The purpose of the event, convened by the William Penn Foundation in mid-November 1999, was to develop approaches to increase the appreciation, utilization, and care of the region's material culture. Leaders from museums, archives, special-collections libraries, historic sites and landscapes were invited to participate, as well as stakeholders from the region's broader community. During these two and a half days, they established common ground and collective goals for the future. According to a recent survey of the region's collections, 102 institutions hold more than 61.2 million artifacts. The survey found that documentation is inadequate in more than one-half of the institutions, and storage is substandard in more than one-third. And as collections grow, the gap between what is held and what is accessible grows wider.
