Electronic Records Adoption in Archive Management in Djibouti’s Academic Libraries: Barriers and the Role of Knowledge Sharing

Nimaleh Abdi Kabel, Jinyuan Zhou, Isidore Komla Zotoo, Wencheng Su
Quality library service depends partially on librarian capability and the adoption and use of technologies that enhance productivity. The perceived adoption and use (PAU) of electronic records management (ERM) in archiving were investigated in four academic libraries in Djibouti. The effects of capability of Librarians to use ERM (CAP) on knowledge sharing (KS), the effects of CAP on PAU, and the mediation potential of KS on the relationship between CAP and PAU were studied using structural equa...

Danger of Typical Sovereignty: Chinese Way Forward from Neighborhood to Globalization

Maimul Ahsan Khan
In the twenty-first century, now China has become the second largest economic engine of the world. As a neighboring country, all important Bangladeshi predicaments are now more relevant to this reality than ever before. Chinese unfolding method of development should have many ramifications that we need to appreciate fully. Chinese systems of doing things have many facets that are not practiced in India and Bangladesh. Western mili

Primary Navigation Purpose of Petroglyphs: Reconstruction on the Basis of the Gnomon

Alina Nikolaevna Paranina, Roman Viktorovich Paranin
The rational functions of primitive art are considered in the article. The reconstruction of the algorithm for the creation and use of petroglyphs as a marking of solar calendars and sundials with the help of an ancient astronomical instrument-gnomon is proposed. Standard geographic methods and observations of the shadow of objects were used in the study. To calculate the shadow charts, the basic trigonometric

Reflection of Space-Time in Ancient Cultural Heritage of Urals

Alina Paranina
Based on the example of Shigir idols, the article reviews the possibility of using the ancient sacred objects as tools for orientation in space-time (according to dating of C-14, the age of the Grand Shigir Idol is 11,000 years). Author’s reconstructions of solar navigation technology are justified by: paleo-astronomic and metrological calculations; reflection of curve of shadow of the gnomon during the year in the proportions of

Geometric Morphometry and Archaeobotany: Characterisation of Grape Seeds (Vitis vinifera L.) by Analysis of Form

Claudio Milanesi, Lorenzo Costantini, Marco Firmati, Francesca Antonucci, Claudia Faleri, Ariano Buracchi, Mauro Cresti
The external profile of seeds is a good phenotypic descriptor, indicative of the origin and diffusion of grape vines (Vitis vinifera L.) over the centuries. Archaeological seeds conserved in an anaerobic environment after discovery were compared with modern seeds, belonging to eleven autochthonous cultivars, sampled in Tuscan vineyards. To study seed profiles we used geometric morphometric analysis (elliptical Fourier analysis) combined with multivariate statistical methods. When the valu...
