This project includes a SQL Server database and a Visual Studio project that simulate the transactions at a chain of grocery stores. It has stores, employees, products, ingredients in the products, manufacturers, and brands. When the simulation runs it generates customer transactions, employee work history, store history (open/closed/on fire/etc.), coupons, coupon usage, and product price history. As this data accumulates you can use it to teach SQL programming and query design.
The source code for the simulation project is included and can be used as an object lesson for software development courses, particularly C# and OOP.
These photographs, taken by Richard Schade at the Berlin Wall upon his visits in 1964 and 1989, document his experience of the Wall. He has assembled the photographs to create a pictorial narrative that creates the experience of a stroll along the Wall. The titles accompanying the images are the captions Dr. Schade wrote for the photographs.
Along the Wall: Photographs at the Berlin Wall, 1989 is an exhibition of the documentary photographic narrative created by Richard Schade. The photographs were exhibited first in Gallery K in the Max Kade German Cultural Center from November 3 - 26, 2014, and then in the Clifton Cultural Arts Center from January 17 - February 28, 2015.
These images show the exhibition as it was staged in the Max Kade German Cultural Center in U.C.'s Old Chemistry building. The photographs were displayed matted in black frames, with a hand-typed caption affixed to the matte.
In addition to Dr. Schade's photographs, a loop of contemporary news reports on the fall of the Wall; a large map showing divided Germany (ca. 1975); and commemorative posters from the German Embassy were displayed.
Brochure for the exhibition in Gallery K. Contains an essay by Richard Schade, a brief artist's bio, and a statement by Emily Bauman, who curated the exhibition. The brochure design is by Michelle Dietz.
The University of Cincinnati Health Sciences Library (HSL) surveyed all first-year medical students about electronic books (eBooks) purchased for the first-year curriculum and conducted a usage analysis. The HSL wanted to determine the extent to which students use eBook versions if required for the curriculum or if they continue to use print versions, and to analyze eBook usability, ease of use, and overall student satisfaction.
Join Kristen Burgess, Sean Crowe, and Carolyn Hansen for a discussion of new trends in name authority control and researcher identity management. Our session will cover the evolution of name authority control programs such as LoC NACO, efforts to merge and disambiguate disparate national name authorities (ISNI), as well as the nascent ORCID program to track and manage researchers.
After a short presentation, we hope to have an open discussion of these topics and what they mean for UC Libraries.
Carolyn Hansen, Metadata Librarian, and her colleague Sean Crowe, Electronic Resources Librarian at University of Cincinnati Libraries, will describe their experiences of transitioning from cataloging to metadata, which is a common occurrence for catalogers these days. As materials and projects are brought online as well as born digital, traditional cataloging sometimes does not suffice the needs of these types of collections. Their presentation is titled "From Cataloging to Metadata: Difference in Scope, Skills, and Standards" and will focus on UC's conversion of over 9,000 Dublin Core records to the VRA standard, illustrating the differences between traditional cataloging and metadata projects with technical details at the forefront. Presentation at ALA Midwinter Conference, CaMMS Cataloging Norms Interest Group, Jan. 25, 2014

In a media landscape dominated by polarizing rhetoric, writing instructors have a renewed
responsibility to thoughtfully engage students. Utilizing a multimodal assignment, Rogerian and
Toulmin argument models can be applied and assessed by students in real-world and online
settings to foster empathy for opposing viewpoints by analyzing assumptions.
This demonstration focuses on using free verse poetry to strengthen L2 writers’ interpretive and invention skills. Drawing on the recent “translingual” turn, it explores poetry as a bridge to academic writing for language learners. Participants will read a short contemporary poem and compose their own “connotative definition,” using brainstorming exercises.
This session examines reading in the composition classroom building from a qualitative analysis of student annotations. Participants will explore social annotation tools that facilitate collaborative, strategic reading among students and instructor feedback on students’ reading strategies. Participants are encouraged to bring an electronic device to participate in this demonstration.
The Multi-Genre Research Project: Teaching Students the Research Skills for Academic Writing will discuss ways to help students become more flexible writers by developing an awareness of how genre works. According to scholars who study students' ability to transfer knowledge from one context to another, genre knowledge, among other skills, helps students analyze and adapt to various writing situations.
This presentation will describe how assignments and evaluations were transformed from "paper &
pencil" methods into multiple digital literacy formats to enable diverse student writers to assess
their progress and to improve their performance.
This presentation proposes ways in which we can better design, deliver, and assess mobile
learning environments for a diversity of students in composition classrooms.
The emerging scene of using mobile devices for composition instruction is ripe for inclusiveness, and can be considered an iteration of Mary Louise Pratt’s “linguistic utopia.”
This presentation explores Asao Inoue’s 2014 assertion that “students find reasons to learn and
grow as writers when their labor is truly honored” in the contexts of basic writing student
reflection and contract grading.
