Abstract: Can a library support an overseas program with a full-time librarian position? Can this position provide distant services successfully through e-learning techniques, social media and other methods? The answer is yes. As many American universities enroll students through a shared or global campus, librarians can play a vital role as the primary information and library services provider. The University of Cincinnati (UC) and Chongqing University, China (CQU) established the first shared engineering programs in China with mandatory co-operative education, the Joint Co-op Institute (JCI), in 2013. Students primarily receive on-campus instruction in China from JCI instructors; however, no UC librarian is onsite to provide dedicated support. In response, UC Libraries developed the new Global Services Librarian position as the lead presence for support of the Libraries’ growing global engagement and partnerships, especially with the JCI. This Librarian provides a full range of services, mostly at a distance, including instruction, outreach, and faculty support. This presentation will describe the development of the Global Services Librarian position, its roles in supporting the JCI, lessons learned in the first year of this position, and how this role could be adapted for other library environments.
As the opportunities and challenges raised by globalization become more a part of people’s everyday lives, colleges and universities are committed to providing their students with academic opportunities on a global scale. This has led academic libraries to focus their efforts on meeting the needs of their students and faculty at global campuses and study abroad sites. Also under the same trend, the number of global services/education librarians is on the rise with unique responsibilities and experiences. In this panel, we’ll be discussing:
the similarities and differences between the global library services programs at our respective sites;
the opportunities and challenges we’ve faced, including how to work with partners on main campus as well as overseas;
discuss how global library services may be evolving in the future.

If your organization is interested in establishing and developing a joint international program in
China, it is inevitable to face both manageable risks and unpredictable changes. There are
mainly three types of challenges.
● Political impact on travel and visa application: the 2017 re-election in China and
leadership change in the United States affect how efficient for both sides to visit each
other and stay for work.
● Technology restriction on teaching and communication: While the fast internet speed
and open internet are taken for granted in the US, technological difficulties in China can
be a barrier for effective teaching and communication.
● Censorship: In China, censorship is always a challenge, especially in the current state.
Be proactive to work effectively within the constraints.
The presenter is intended to share some experience and best practice based on a successful
joint institute between University of Cincinnati and Chongqing University. As the first coop based
program in China, the program continues to be a leading model in international engineering
A tactile display apparatus renders information to a user, and comprises multiple braille cells attached adjacent to each other along a predefined path, a set of pins housed within the braille cells, and a set of pin holders inserted on the braille cells. The braille cells are moved periodically at a predefined speed via a driving assembly. The pins are selectively actuated by actuators, where the linear motion of the braille cells allow the user to contact the pins to read the information represented by the arrangement of the pins. The pin holders are moved along a defined path to contact the pins, and each pin holder comprises a rigid body and multiple elastic rings attached along the rigid body. The number of elastic rings is equal to the number of pins to allow the pin holder to selectively hold or release a pin.

Talk Title: Working with Agency Data to Better Understand Racial Disparities: The Case of Disproportionate Minority Contact with the Juvenile Justice System
This presentation is based on a recently-concluded study that sought to better understand patterns of disproportionate minority contact (DMC) in Ohio’s juvenile justice system. The project required extensive assessment and integration of record data that varied in their structures, availability of key fields, and operational definitions, which were collected or extracted from dozens of local juvenile court and police agencies across the state. Currently lead federally-funded research studies on juvenile risk and needs assessment and important reforms in Ohio’s juvenile justice systems.

Talk Title: Lessons From Publishing: Do Researchers in Developing Countries Receive Credit for Their Work?
My laboratory is working to better understand if scientists in developing countries, where the majority of plant biodiversity occurs, are receiving proper scientific recognition for their research in the form of authorship in the peer-reviewed literature. We are also interested in promoting shared, accessible data that may be used in future studies to make novel advancements in the biological field. Our research thus far indicates that many scientists in developing countries are not being included in the published literature as authors

Abstract. Several basic relative invariants for homogeneous linear differential
equations were discovered during the years shortly after 1878. Also, a basic
relative invariant was found by Paul Appell in 1889 for a type of nonlinear
differential equation. There was little progress during the years 1892--1988 as
researchers who worked with homogeneous linear differential equations were
unknowingly handicapped by the standard practice of introducing binomial
coefficients in the writing of their equations. They thereby failed to develop
adequate formulas for the coefficients of equations resulting from a change of
the independent variable. Consequently, for relative invariants as the most
important kind of invariant, progress was stymied.
The notation was simplified in 1989, adequate transformation formulas
were developed, and explicit expressions were deduced in 2002 for all of the
basic relative invariants of homogeneous linear differential equations. In 2007,
explicit formulas were obtained for all of the basic relative invariants of a
type of ordinary differential equation involving two parameters m and n that
represent positive integers. When n = 1 and m >= 3, the formulas specialize to
provide all of the basic relative invariants for homogeneous linear differential
equations of order m; and, when m = n = 2, they yield all three of the basic
relative invariants for the equations of Paul Appell.
A general method developed in 2014 combines two relative invariants of
weights p and q for the same type of equation to explicitly obtain a relative
invariant of weight p+q +r, for any r >= 0. With that, the principal problems
about relative invariants have now been solved.
This monograph provides clear perspective about the reformulation begun
after 1988 and recently completed. Chapters 15 and 18 show how the major
difficulties confronting earlier researchers have been overcome.

In this paper, I study how general technology users perceive the dark web. In this study,
I conducted research on what these users know about dark web technologies, activities,
content, and how their perceptions changed after a first-hand experience on dark web
marketplaces and sites. I aimed to tackle myths and misconceptions that users had about the
dark web and present new data in order to educate and bring awareness to the dark web to
those who may never have the opportunity or reason to come upon this information on their
own. It is my hope that the findings of this paper and the experiences of the participants will
foster the spread of knowledge and awareness to both the threats and benefits that the dark
web contributes to society.

Cincinnati has one of the lowest home ownership rates in the country for cities of comparable size. Several other cities with low rates of home ownership in 1970 have managed to increase their rates two to four percent over the past 25 years, but the home ownership rate in Cincinnati has been stable over that period at 38 percent.
The best explanation for Cincinnati’s low home ownership rate is that the topography of the city encouraged dense development involving multiple-unit structures up until World War II. When the highway programs of the post-war period opened up the suburbs to development, the city was already built-out and could not compete for new single-unit construction that the federal government was subsidizing on a massive scale.
In the last 50 years, the Hamilton County suburbs have gained 140,000 owners while the number of owners in the city has decreased by 1,000. As a result, the home ownership rate in the Cincinnati metropolitan area is greater than the national rate for areas of comparable size (63 percent versus 61 percent) while the rate in the city is far less than the national rate.
The City of Cincinnati faces a number of challenges in any effort to increase its home ownership rate. Government programs in other cities typically produce dozens of units a year, not the hundreds of units that Cincinnati needs to produce. In order to achieve even a modest increase in home ownership, the city will have to alter market forces in the direction of increased supply of housing suitable for owner-occupancy and increased demand for home ownership.
In order to increase its rate of home ownership to 41 percent by the year 2010, the City of Cincinnati needs to adopt a four-part strategy:
Increase the Supply of Units
The market cannot produce new units on its own. The city needs to assemble and prepare sites in order to reduce the additional costs associated with building in the city as opposed to the suburbs. City Hall must continue to eliminate barriers to development and provide new services to builders. Cincinnati will not be able to increase the number of middle-class owners without creating new neighborhood areas with the appropriate mix of amenities. At the lower end of the owner-market, the city needs to move aggressively to convert abandoned structures into units people will want to buy and rehabilitate.
Help Renters Become Owners
While converting renters to owners is an essential component of an overall strategy, the City of Cincinnati must recognize that not everyone can be an owner and target its resources appropriately. The city does not have unlimited funds to change the cost equation of owning a home and will, therefore, have to learn from other cities how to work with lending institutions to increase the flow of dollars under Community Reinvestment Act initiatives. Other cities have had some limited success with programs to convert people renting duplex and condo units into owners. The city needs to increase the availability, extent and quality of education and counseling programs.
Attract New Households to the City
The city has to market its neighborhoods, and in some cases, smaller areas within neighborhoods. This will require market research, training programs for Realtors, investments in street furniture, increased services, publications extolling city neighborhoods, and programs comparable to the Living in Cleveland program. The city needs to start working cooperatively with the Cincinnati Public Schools. Specific market niches in which the city can hope to compete very successfully include the empty nesters, the gay and lesbian community, first time buyers, and people interested in downtown living.
Maintain the Existing Pool of Owners
About 75 percent of the time a home owner in Cincinnati sells and buys another home in the Cincinnati area, the home purchased will be in the suburbs. The city must create opportunities for the home seller to move up without moving out of the city.
In addition to the above strategies, which involve the central city market, the City of Cincinnati needs to actively promote strategies that will help slow the rate of suburbanization and that will create low income housing opportunities in the suburbs. If suburbanization continues at the current rate, and if the city continues to be the governmental unit with de facto responsibility for low income housing, there is every reason to wonder if there is anything that the city can do to increase its rate of home ownership.

Is jazz serious art music? Is jazz in fact America’s classical music? I contend that much jazz is both. This paper is an exploration of these questions, not a history of jazz, although I will have to recount some historical facts. Rather, it is an examination of this music from two perspectives, seeking a convincing argument for my assertions.
Libraries, archives, and museums have traditionally preserved and provided
access to many different kinds of physical materials, including books, papers,
theses, faculty research notes, correspondence, and more. These items have been
critical for researchers to have a full understanding of their fields of study as well as
the history and context that surround the work.
