SCONUL Research Extra
John Hall
Liber Quarterly : The Journal of European Research Libraries , 2006,
Abstract: SCONUL Research Extra is a cooperative access and borrowing scheme for staff and research students in UK and Irish higher education institutions. Under the terms of the scheme, eligible researchers may visit any participating library and register as an external borrower. The scheme is run on behalf of SCONUL, the Society of College, National and University Libraries which represents the directors of the library and information services in all the universities of the United Kingdom and Ireland, and in most other UK institutions of higher education, and the directors of the national libraries; it is for all institutions in membership of SCONUL able to lend library materials and, with 158 institutions signed up, it is now the largest reciprocal borrowing scheme in the UK and Ireland, serving almost the entire membership of SCONUL.

Learning technology and organisations: transformational impact?
Martin Hall,Mike Keppell,John Bourne
Research in Learning Technology , 2010, DOI: 10.3402/rlt.v18i3.10760
Abstract: This collection of papers contributes to a wide and ongoing strand of interest in alternative learning technologies: how are digitally-enabled ways of working transforming organisations? In ‘transformation' we look for radical change, rather than just doing the same at a different scale. And in organisations we centre on educational institutions – across the full range of schooling, training, further and higher education – while recognising that conventional boundaries are increasingly broken as different kinds of organisations invest in digitally-enabled learning.
Open Source Library Software Development in a Small Rural Library System
Kyle Hall,Cindy Murdock Ames,John Brice
Code4Lib Journal , 2013,
Abstract: Using the Crawford County Federated Library System’s development of an open source web kiosk management system, as an example, this article will illustrate how an open source library project is defined, specified, written, tested and rolled out. The article will also discuss how the project was released as an Open Source project and future development of the project. The web kiosk project is called Libki and was written to authenticate users and allow access to the Internet kiosks based on time limits. Libki is a completely Open Source project and is now used by multiple libraries across the US. The client side of Libki is cross platform and supports multiple operating systems including Microsoft Windows and Linux. The administrative side of the program allows access to user logs, controls time and access and allows the librarian to log a patron off the system in real time. Libki was completely developed and written by staff members of the Crawford County Federated Library System.
The Importance of Learning to Differentiate between ‘Hard’ and ‘Soft’ Knowledge
Matthew Hall,Stewart R. Clegg,John Sillince
Communications of the IBIMA , 2008,
Abstract: For knowledge to be managed it has to be severed from those who produced it; it must be stable, replicable, and translatable across contexts, space and time. What this entails is that at some point in its development it has to be divided from its auspices as a specific knowledge of specific people. In science the norms of replication and experimentation enable this division. In the commercial world, where what is required is a commercial product that can be marketed as distinct, different norms operate. In this paper we explore what we take to be a significant way of making such division, which entails the strategy of differentiating that which is ‘soft’ from that which is ‘hard’. Such categories are not self evident and are always socially constructed. In this paper we look at the process through which the division is made up.
Counting Descent Pairs with Prescribed Tops and Bottoms
John T. Hall,Jeffrey B. Remmel
Mathematics , 2006,
Abstract: Given sets X and Y of positive integers and a permutation sigma = sigma_1, sigma_2, ..., sigma_n in S_n, an X,Y-descent of sigma is a descent pair sigma_i > sigma_{i+1} whose "top" sigma_i is in X and whose "bottom" sigma_{i+1} is in Y. We give two formulas for the number P_{n,s}^{X,Y} of sigma in S_n with s X,Y-descents. P_{n,s}^{X,Y} is also shown to be a hit number of a certain Ferrers board. This work generalizes results of Kitaev and Remmel on counting descent pairs whose top (or bottom) is equal to 0 mod k.

Intervention with Muslim Filipino Families:The Implications of Spirituality for Psychology  [PDF]
Ronald Hall
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2010.11007
Abstract: Political repercussions following destructive events of September 11, 2001 have the potential to dampen enthusiasm for the incorporation of spirituality by psychologists who see Muslim Filipino families. Among various Muslim Filipino populations, spirituality is fundamental. Psychologists who are conscientious would be remiss to exclude such a critical aspect of life when it is essential. The implications of spirituality for psychology intervention with Muslim Filipino families include the need to acknowledge and, when appropriate, apply values, belief systems, and other culture specific criteria. To do otherwise will bias intervention with Muslim Filipino families, rendering psychology less potent in its ability to accommodate such families.
Digital Renaissance: The Creative Potential of Narrative Technology in Education  [PDF]
Tony Hall
Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.31016
Abstract: This paper outlines research which explores the potential of narrative technology: the synergy of storytelling and computing to enhance creativity and creative education. The paper outlines the theoretical basis of the research: n?ogenic narrative, which is informed by contemporary debates and themes in the educational sciences. These include narrativity and storytelling in education; and positive and humanistic psychology. Furthermore, from an empirical/practical perspective, a number of examples of narrative technology are presented and discussed. These exemplify the principal ways in which narrative technology has been deployed in the research-enhanced teaching outlined in this paper: as both a pedagogical, and as a reflective methodology. The paper concludes with insights regarding the deployment of narrative technology to enhance creativity and creative education; and how the synergy of storytelling and computing is potentially affording new possibilities for a digital renaissance in education and educational technology.
Global and National Socioeconomic Disparities in Obesity, Overweight, and Underweight Status
Spencer Moore,Justin N. Hall,Sam Harper,John W. Lynch
Journal of Obesity , 2010, DOI: 10.1155/2010/514674
Abstract: Objective. To examine the association between socioeconomic factors and weight status across 53 countries. Methods. Data are cross-sectional and from the long version of the World Health Survey (WHS). There were 172,625 WHS participants who provided self-reported height and weight measures and sociodemographic information. The International Classification of adult weight status was used to classify participants by body mass index (BMI): (1) underweight (<18.5), (2) normal weight (18.5–24.9), (3) overweight (25.0–29.9), and (4) obese (>30.0). Multinomial regression was used in the analyses. Results. Globally, 6.7% was underweight, 25.7% overweight, and 8.9% obese. Underweight status was least (5.8%) and obesity (9.3%) most prevalent in the richest quintile. There was variability between countries, with a tendency for lower-income quintiles to be at increased risk for underweight and reduced risk for obesity. Conclusion. International policies may require flexibility in addressing cross-national differences in the socio-economic covariates of BMI status.
