For any journey, it is often best to have a map. For libraries and librarians, that map is often a living document that speaks to where the organization is today, where the planners intend to take it in the future, and how to get there. Here is a structured tool for your public library's planning process. Tom Hennen, creator of the Hennen American Public Library Ratings (HAPLR), covers all key area of library development - budgeting, governance and administration, electronic services, collection development, technology, access and facilities, staffing and personnel, and more. A wide range of checklists are provided to help assess the quality of everything from the library director, the integrated system, or even the meeting facilities. Reference tables help evaluate the library's needs for FTE staffing, collection holdings, hours of operation, material expenditures and more. Even better, the CD-Rom calculates many of these numbers for your particular libraryl Policy development is covered with sample mission statements and policies for Volunteers and Friends, Internet Use, Disasters, and more, usable in large and small libraries alike. The step-by-step guide provides practical advice for all aspects of creating a plan, from creating a committee to long-range directions, and communicating results. The numbers - statistics, data, surveys, and even percentile comparisons - are tackled in a straight-forward, understandable manner. The companion, Interactive CD-ROM features more than 50 checklists and ""fill in the blank"" forms and a calculator for your library's individual needs. This is an essential resource for charting and navigating your public library's future.
Fixtures are an essential part of manufacturing production. This book covers computer-aided fixture design, fixture clamping synthesis and optimisation, workpiece-fixture interaction, intelligent fixture designed to integrate with processing equipment or machine tools so as to improve productivity and product quality, Internet-enabled fixture design and modular fixture database management. These are the emerging issues central to the development of computer-integrated manufacturing. Covering the established knowledge of fixture design automation and the niche areas of fixture system integration and Internet-enabled design, the book would be a prevalent reference for academics, manufacturing & industrial engineers, and a valuable text for engineering graduate students.
Hsu and Pant in Innovative Planning for Electronic Commerce and Enterprises: A Reference Model have proposed a management planning model for developing strategic goals for e-commerce enterprises. The authors feel they may be provocative sometimes; however, the field is so new that there is no working model for an e-commerce enterprise with a proven success record.
"Helen Sun details the meticulous methods used by the Chinese Communist Party to monitor China's Internet communication, particularly at Internet bars.
