Preparing Schools and School Systems for the 21st Century

This book describes the kind of education system that is needed for the future. The text originated with a study that involved 21 leaders in business, education, government, and other fields who identified more than 250 characteristics that would enhance schools' capability in preparing students for a global knowledge/information age. Followup surveys asked participants to prioritize the 250 items and gauge the items' potential impact on student learning. Chapter 1 presents 16 major characteristics developed after a thorough review of the entire study. Some of these characteristics include "All students have equal opportunity for an outstanding education, with adequate funding, no matter where they live,""Educators are driven by high expectations and clear, challenging standards that are widely understood by students, families and communities," and "Students learn to think, reason and make sound decisions and demonstrate values inherent in a democracy." Chapters 2 through 11 review specific characteristics identified in each of 12 categories. These chapters present explanations of eight or more characteristics that were rated highest in the survey. Chapter 12 offers suggestions about how school leaders might put this research to work in their communities. The conclusion of most chapters or sections includes a listing of additional characteristics identified by the original 21 community leaders. (RJM)

Plant Diseases and Food Security in the 21st Century

Of the global population of more than 7 billion people, some 800 million do not have enough to eat today. By 2050, the population is expected to exceed 9 billion. It has been estimated that some 15% of food production is lost to plant diseases; in developing countries losses may be much higher. Historically, plant diseases have had catastrophic impact on food production. For example: potato blight caused the Irish famine in 1845; brown spot of rice caused the Great Bengal Famine of 1943; southern corn leaf blight caused a devastating epidemic on the US corn crop in 1970. Food security is threatened by an ongoing sequence of plant diseases, some persistent for decades or centuries, others more opportunistic. Wheat blast and banana xanthomonas wilt are two contrasting examples of many that currently threaten food production. Other emerging diseases will follow. The proposed title aims to provide a synthesis of expert knowledge to address this central challenge to food security for the 21st century.

Reserves  Electronic Reserves  and Copyright

Prepare your library for the changing role of course reserve collections Reserves, Electronic Reserves, and Copyright: The Past and the Future provides you with a comprehensive understanding of how the traditional role of reserve collections in education has evolved to reflect changes in technologies, copyright laws, and perhaps more important, perceptions of copyright laws. This unique book demonstrates how librarians have allowed their copyright policies and practices to be shaped by rhetoric from publishers and their own misinterpretations of copyright law instead of the actual legal aspects that apply to course reserves. Author Brice Austin, Head of Circulation and Interlibrary Loan Services at the University of Colorado, presents practical strategies for adapting your reserves to the changing world of higher education, focusing on new teaching methods and electronic resources. In addition to providing a historical overview of reserves and copyrights, Reserves, Electronic Reserves, and Copyright: The Past and the Future offers practical methods for getting the copyright flexibility you need from your course reserves by emphasizing economic instead of legal arguments. You'll find strategies for protecting yourself against a decline in the significance of course reserves as libraries and publishers move from print-based to electronic formats. The book encourages you to take a proactive stance on the future of your reserves operation by: 1) exploiting your position as publishers' customers to your advantage, 2) making full use of Fair Use, and 3) forging partnerships with other campus entities in order to offer expanded, multifaceted reserves services. Reserves, Electronic Reserves, and Copyright: The Past and the Future examines: the origins of the practice of setting materials aside from the main library collection the introduction of a “new method of photography”—the copy machine the 1976 copyright law revisions, including fair use, reproductions by libraries, and classroom guidelines lawsuits against New York University and Kinko’s Graphics Corporation the history of electronic reserves and much more! Reserves, Electronic Reserves, and Copyright: The Past and the Future also contains several appendices, including Section 108 of the United States Copyright Law and “Applying Fair Use in the Development of Electronic Reserves Systems” from the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). The book is an invaluable professional resource for librarians at academic institutions, especially those charged with administering electronic reserves.

The Digitalization of the 21st Century Supply Chain

The goal of this book is to gain a clear picture of the current status and future challenges with regard to the digitalization of the supply chain – from the perspective of the suppliers, the manufacturers, and the customers. They were the target groups of the book. Digitization has touched upon all aspects of businesses, including supply chains. Technologies such as RFID, GPS, and sensors have enabled organizations to transform their existing hybrid (combination of paper-based and IT-supported processes) supply chain structures into more f lexible, open, agile, and collaborative digital models. Unlike hybrid supply chain models, which have resulted in rigid organizational structures, unobtainable data, and disjointed relationships with partners, digital supply chains enable business process automation, organizational flexibility, and digital management of corporate assets. In order to reap maximum benefits from digital supply chain models, it is important that companies internalize it as an integral part of the overall business model and organizational structure. Localized disconnected projects and silo-based operations pose a serious threat to competitiveness in an increasingly digital world. The technologies discussed in this text – artificial intelligence, 3D printing, Internet of things, etc. – are beginning to come together to help digitize, automate, integrate, and improve the global supply chains. It’s certainly an exciting and challenging time for both new supply chain professionals and long-time supply chain professionals.
