The Discipline of Organizing (Professional Edition)
Organizing is such a common activity that we often do it without thinking much about it. In our daily lives we organize physical things–books on shelves, cutlery in kitchen drawers–and digital things–Web pages, MP3 files, scientific datasets. Millions of people create and browse Web sites, blog, tag, tweet, and upload and download content of all media types without thinking "I'm organizing now" or "I'm retrieving now."

This book offers a framework for the theory and practice of organizing that integrates information organization (IO) and information retrieval (IR), bridging the disciplinary chasms between Library and Information Science and Computer Science, each of which views and teaches IO and IR as separate topics and in substantially different ways. It introduces the unifying concept of an Organizing System–an intentionally arranged collection of resources and the interactions they support–and then explains the key concepts and challenges in the design and deployment of Organizing Systems in many domains, including libraries, museums, business information systems, personal information management, and social computing. Intended for classroom use or as a professional reference, the book covers the activities common to all organizing systems: identifying resources to be organized; organizing resources by describing and classifying them; designing resource-based interactions; and maintaining resources and organization over time. The book is extensively annotated with disciplinary-specific notes to ground it with relevant concepts and references of library science, computing, cognitive science, law, and business.

Ecology Revisited: Reflecting on Concepts, Advancing Science

FREEDownload : Ecology Revisited: Reflecting on Concepts, Advancing Science

Ecology Revisited: Reflecting on Concepts, Advancing Science by Astrid Schwarz and Kurt Jax
English | 2011-03-29 | ISBN: 9048197430 | PDF | 464 pages | 5 MB

Ecology Revisited: Reflecting on Concepts, Advancing Science
As concerns about humankind's relationship with the environment move inexorably up the agenda, this volume tells the story of the history of the concept of ecology itself and adds much to the historical and philosophical debate over this multifaceted discipline. The text provides readers with an overview of the theoretical, institutional and historical formation of ecological knowledge. The varied local conditions of early ecology are considered in detail, while epistemological problems that lie on the borders of ecology, such as disunity and complexity, are discussed. The book traces the various phases of the history of the concept of ecology itself, from its 19th century origins and antecedents, through the emergence of the environmental movement in the later 20th century, to the future, and how ecology might be located in the environmental science framework of the 21st century.

The study of ecological' phenomena has never been confined solely to the work of researchers who consider themselves ecologists. It is rather a field of knowledge in which a plurality of practices, concepts and theories are developed. Thus, there exist numerous disciplinary subdivisions and research programmes within the field, the boundaries of which remain blurred. As a consequence, the deliberation to adequately identify the ecological field of knowledge, its epistemic and institutional setting, is still going on. This will be of central importance not only in locating ecology in the frame of 21st century environmental sciences but also for a better understanding of how nature and culture are intertwined in debates about pressing problems, such as climate change, the protection of species diversity, or the management of renewable resources.

Disciplinary Intuitions and the Design of Learning Environments

FREEDownload : Disciplinary Intuitions and the Design of Learning Environments

Disciplinary Intuitions and the Design of Learning Environments by Kenneth Y. T. Lim
2014 | ISBN: 9812871810 | English | 201 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Disciplinary Intuitions and the Design of Learning Environments
This book introduces the concept of disciplinary intuitions, and foregrounds the tacit proto-understandings and sensings as distinct from prior knowledge.
It explores the design of curricula and technology-augmented learning environments for more enduring understanding, and in doing so, initiates a provocative debate into contemporary understandings of curriculum design with regards the nature of intuitions as varying across traditional subject domains.

The Design Collective: An Approach to Practice

The Design Collective: An Approach to Practice by Harriet Edquist
2012 | ISBN: 1443840270 | English | 285 pages | PDF | 6 MB

The Design Collective: An Approach to Practice
The rise of social networking and open-source technology, the return of community-focussed activities (eg. gardens, knitting groups, food cooperatives) and creative collectives across the fields of design and the visual arts have reawakened the discourse around human capital, flat structures and collectives as a means for 'making' the things of everyday life. As the essays presented in this collection illustrate, there is an emerging field of discourse about the potential of the collective as an organising and generative community structure that links creativity, social change and politics. Furthermore it is clear that in this developing context there are a number of issues central to design practice, such as authorship, agency and aesthetics that are in the process of re-evaluation and critique. Bringing together views of practitioners, historians and theorists this volume examines the etymology, boundaries and practices that the idea of the collective affords. It is broadly organised into sections on architecture, digital technologies and counter-cultural practices and includes historical and contemporary accounts of design collectives from a range of disciplinary viewpoints.

Mesoamerica’s Classic Heritage: From Teotihuacan to the Aztecs
For more than a millennium the great Mesoamerican city of Teotihuacan (c. 150 B.C.E.-750 C.E.) has been imagined and reimagined by a host of subsequent cultures, including our own. Mesoamerica's Classic Heritage engages the subject of the unity and diversity of pre-Hispanic Mesoamerica by focusing on the classic heritage of this ancient city. This new volume is the product of several years of research by members of Princeton University's Moses Mesoamerican Archive and Research Project and Mexico's Proyecto Teotihuacan. Offering a variety of disciplinary perspectives-including the history of religions, anthropology, archaeology, and art history-and a wealth of new data, Mesoamerica's Classic Heritage examines Teotihuacan's rippling influence across Mesoamerican time and space, including important patterns of continuity and change, and its relationships, both historical and symbolic, with Tenochtitlan, Cholula, and various Maya communities.

Chris Wild, Paolo Vineis, "Molecular Epidemiology of Chronic Diseases"
2008 | ISBN-10: 0470027436 | 384 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Molecular Epidemiology of Chronic Diseases
With the sequencing of the human genome and the mapping of millions of single nucleotide polymorphisms, epidemiology has moved into the molecular domain. Scientists can now use molecular markers to track disease–associated genes in populations, enabling them to study complex chronic diseases that might result from the weak interactions of many genes with the environment. Use of these laboratory–generated biomarker data and an understanding of disease mechanisms are increasingly important in elucidating disease aetiology. crosses the disciplinary boundaries between laboratory scientists, epidemiologists, clinical researchers and biostatisticians, and is accessible to all these relevant research communities in focusing on practical issues of application, rather than reviews of current areas of research. Covers categories of biomarkers of exposure, susceptibility and disease Includes chapters on novel technologies: genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabonomics, which are increasingly finding application in population studies Emphasizes new statistical and bioinformatics approaches necessitated by the large data sets generated using these new methodologies Demonstrates the potential applications of laboratory techniques in tackling epidemiological problems while considering their limitations, including the sources of uncertainty and inaccuracy Issues such as reliability (compared to traditional epidemiological methods) and the timing of exposure are discussed Practical elements of conducting population studies, including biological repositories and ethics, are explored provides an easy–to–use, clearly presented handbook that allows epidemiologists to understand the specifics of research involving biomarkers,and laboratory scientist to understand the main issues of epidemiological study design and analysis. it also provides a useful tool for courses on molecular epidemiology using many examples from population studies to illustrate key concepts and principles.
