Fri, 11/30/2012 - 14:02
2012-11-30T13:02:24Z Valencia-Cerino, Yaditzy García-Martínez, Verónica This work presents the results of a postgraduate thesis on communication, particularly the use of language. Messenger is one of the most popular ways for communicating by signs and symbols. This study was carried out on junior high school students in state education. This research explores the possible impact on junior high school students’ written work due to their use of Messenger. To address this question, the referential communication model with the qualitative approach was used in order to carry out a comparative study. Data were gathered from 16 junior high school students between 15 and 17 years of age who were paired into two groups for each part of the investigation. The research showed that it was possible to categorize the students into three groups: those who constantly use Internet, those who do not constantly use Internet and the rest who do not use it. The end results reveal that there is little relationship between the use of signs and symbols on Messenger and the quality of written work presented by junior high school students

Fri, 11/30/2012 - 14:00
2012-11-30T13:00:16Z Martínez-Salanova-Sánchez, Enrique The article begins with a reflection on the knowledge society as foundational for improving strategies to live together on the planet, through the enrichment and driving force that spring from a diversity of civilizations and cultures. The media and new technologies increase possibilities for human inter-relationship through the connection in networks. The cinema, in particular, presents new guidelines for behaviour, brings new knowledge and cultures within reach, and becomes indispensable for illustrating new ways to resolve conflict and previously unknown aspects of intercultural dialogue. It explores alliance-forming in solving common problems, and the search for creative answers to humanity’s major problems, principally those having to do with peace and solidarity. Educational systems should receive help to promote training, instruction and education in the use of new technologies, a key to the future of society, so that future generations will be prepared to make critical use of the media, as an instrument and channel for human interrelationship, for information searching, and as a tool for research and for learning.

GESAR: Software configurable para generación de estadísticas de un servidor EZproxy

Thu, 11/29/2012 - 19:11
2012-11-29T18:11:53Z Ortiz Ancona, Dante Ballesteros Estrada, Silvia Gama Mora, Mario Cedillo Pérez, Alfredo Ibarra Contreras, Rafael Purpose: Presents a software system statistics generator, with configurable reports for decision making in the digital collections development, through the processing of log files generated by an EZproxy server. Design / methodology / approach: This case study was written after implementing the software GESAR into the DGB-UNAM remote access service. The followed procedure was: process the log files generated by an EZproxy server and store the resulted information in three relationships within a relational database containing institutional catalogs (electronic resources providers, users, communities, campi, among others). In the present case, 159 statistical reports on the use of electronic resources were defined, with the option to define a larger amount. Then, through a graphical interface statistical reports were displayed in HTML and Microsoft Excel format, what makes possible to filter the information in different ways, making the number of displayed reports virtually uncountable. Findings: Although GESAR was designed for an EZproxy server, it can easily be adapted to any website. By analyzing statistical reports, it was found what kind of users accessed what resources, on what date and time, as well as the physical locations from where access was performed. This analysis allowed us to discover certain anomalies in the use of electronic resources by some users. Originality / value: GESAR incorporates two new features not provided by any other similar tool: a) it generates reports based on users’ needs. b) utilization of a database with institutional catalogs to generate reports. The usage data allow to visualize who, where, when and what resources were consulted. The analyzed data universe was 263 million access records and 171,000 users. Keywords / topics: web analytics, transaction log analysis, web log analysis, log file analysis, log processing, statistics web sites, log analysis, collections management, library users, online databases. Publication Type: Case Study

Thu, 11/29/2012 - 18:26
2012-11-29T17:26:31Z Lozano-Martínez, Josefina Ballesta-Pagán, Francisco Javier Alcaraz-García, Salvador This paper reports the results of a research project in which educational software was used to teach social and emotional skills to primary and secondary school students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The participants with difficulties in recognizing emotional states were nine male and female students aged between 8 and 18, with a mental age range of between 5 and 7 years. A single group design with pre-test/post-test was used. The students were assessed before teaching in relation to their levels of social and emotional skills. This assessment was intended to set the starting level of the teaching process for each student. The educational intervention consisted of two 45-minute weekly sessions for 20 weeks over two academic years (2006/2008). Following the intervention, each student was again assessed. Results indicate that the pupils improved their performance in tasks that evaluate the ability to recognize and understand emotional expressions. These results confirmed that the use of educational software for teaching social and emotional skills helps students with ASD to improve their ability to perform tasks aimed at the understanding of emotional skills. In addition, the participants improved their social skills significantly, a fact that was noticed by both teachers and families.

Personal contact (92.90%% i.e. 13 respondents) was a highly exercised promotional activity among the respondents. It was observed that respondents credited faculty (64.29% i.e. 9 respondents) as the major contributors to their institutional repositories. The study covered Indian institutional repositories only and the findings were compared with other studies. This is the first detailed study focusing on the management aspects of IRs. It has identified the existence of 16 functional IRs, some which were not registered in any of the directories such as ROAR, Open DOAR.

Lietuvos nacionalinės Martyno Mažvydo bibliotekos rankraščių fondo formavimas XX amžiaus 8–9 dešimtmetyje

Thu, 11/29/2012 - 14:19
2012-11-29T13:19:12Z Steponaitienė, Jolita Document collection, systematic and reasonable acquisition, and interests and needs of a certain organization are among its main functions. From the historical point of view, formation of a document collection reflects the actualities of the time, policies, understandings and public obligations of an institution. It could seem that the soviet ideology couldn't disregard such library activities; however, exploring the documents of that time reveal some paradoxical things such as acquiring „ideologically wrong“ documents. This situation is discussed in the article.

Spaudos draudimo laikotarpio lietuviškos knygos autorių sudėties kaita

Thu, 11/29/2012 - 14:16
2012-11-29T13:16:42Z Steponaitienė, Jolita In 1864, press in the Latin alphabet was banned in Lithuania. This ban lasted until 1904. During 40 years, a new generation of Lithuanian books' authors developed. It was caused by the growth and expansion of national movement and the nation's consciousness in the ninth decade of the 19th century. The basis of the new generation's authors was formed under the new circumstances, i.e. After the press ban, by people with secular professions and occupations, not only those who had graduated from universities, institutes or seminaries, but also those who had finished only several classes and were self-educated. Due to the different economic and social conditions, access to education, most authors were from Suvalkija and East Aukštaitija. For this reason, the written language dialect changed. During this period, among the Lithuanian authors also women appeared.
