Something Exciting Is About To Transform Toronto!
Once the city that slept too much – Toronto is waking up to a cultural explosion! Here, new people and a variety of cultures mix, creating dynamic neighbourhoods. Theatre, dance, music and film--- an astonishing variety of voices tell many different stories that challenge our assumptions and enrich our lives.
Soon, in the heart of the city, there will be a place for these voices to be heard, discussed, and shared; a home for ideas and dreams. An historic theatre is about to be renovated, a new home for artists from all over. A place committed to the breaking of cultural barriers—where artistic freedom and the exploration of sexuality and art reign---- Timothy Findley
Forging New Cultural Frontiers:
Imagine a place where artists congregate and create new visions of all cultures and where audiences converge for a wondrous experience. Buddies is a theatre which celebrates the work of cutting edge and lesbian and gay artists. Buddies will continue to be about difference and how exciting and enriching that difference is! The new Buddies will be home to explorers of Toronto’s uniquely modern urban culture. It is a risky and often sensuous adventure. But that’s what art is about—isn’t it?
Honouring the TWP legacy
Before George Luscombe and Toronto Workshop Productions, Toronto had little if any indigeneuos theatre. Sure, there were American road shows but nothing by an for us! There is a certain symmetry to Buddies in Bad Times’ move into the former home of Toronto Workshop Productions. The past will have a place of honour in the present. We will build a wall of tribute to Toronto Workshop Productions. Here, Buddies will face the future of theatre on a solid foundation. From the birthplace of radical theatre in Canada, will grow a theatre for the next century!

Library of Congress Relevance to School Libraries

...Library of Congress Relevance to School Libraries Donna Smith University of North Texas SLIS 5208 Library of Congress Relevance to School Libraries Introduction The Library of Congress (LOC) plays a momentous role in acquirement, distribution, and preservation of America’s historical and current documents like books, journals, political manuscripts (like the declaration of independence rough draft), government publications, map, films, sound recording, photographic images, and films. LOC was established in America in the first decade of the nineteenth century to act as a researching facility for inquiries made by Congress (Santella, 2006). However, after many years the facility has grown to become a leading institution that encourages reading and literacy among students and the general public. LOC is pertinent in encouraging research of critical information among students by improving information opportunities accessible to students so that they can utilize their potential present times. The twenty-first century is faced with intricate life and work setting and for this reasons, learning and innovation skills have emerged as the qualities that separate students who are prepared to face these challenges and those who are not. The role played by the LOC is evidenced by U.S integral and superb government structure that has existed for years and rated as the best in the world. LOC success can act as a model......

Unit 1 Assignment 1: Virtual Library: Competition Designs for Columbus, in

...Unit 1 Assignment 1: Virtual Library: Competition Designs for Columbus, IN Columbus, Ind., looks like any other small town, with its small shops and restaurants. But what sets this town apart is its architecture. The Modernist buildings — mostly geometric and made of glass and steel — are not immediately visible, interspersed as they are with old, 19th-century, gingerbread-like structures; but more than 60 public buildings in Columbus have been built by a veritable who's who of modern masters — I.M. Pei, Eero and Eliel Saarinen, Cesar Pelli, Richard Meier, Harry Weese, Robert Venturi and James Polshek, to name a few. In 1991, the American Institute of Architects rated Columbus sixth on its list of the top 10 American cities for architectural quality and innovation, right up there with Chicago, New York and San Francisco. That's pretty amazing for a town of just 44,000 residents. Six of the city's modern buildings have also been designated as national historic landmarks, and enough people travel from nearby towns and states — and even other countries — to see them that the local visitors center gives walking tours. Columbus is a city in and the county seat of Bartholomew County, Indiana, United States. Located approximately forty miles south of Indianapolis, on the east fork of the White River, it is the state's 20th largest city. It is also the principal city of the Columbus, Indiana, metropolitan statistical area which encompasses all of Bartholomew County. The land......

...Ortiz send me about the application pass it along so you can read it. She talks about that you don’t need to put anything on the application. Whatever notes or whatever you need to put on the application you need to put on onto Sirsi in the extended part under notes. No notes on the paper applications, not worth putting any extra notes on the paper application. There is no reason for anyone to write stored or any other notes on the registration form staff need only to insure form is completed with the requested info and signed by the customer and make sure there is only one account and data entry completed and new entry updated. Before customer leaves the desk any additional notes on form serve no purpose and are a waste of time for the library. January rd​ 3​ email was sent out. Everybody understand that? Were passing it around so you can see. And then Mercedes sent me an email, they had sent previous and Virginia has about the applications too. it is mainly about the users whenever somebody pay for a, she had returned a book that was in collection, it still on her acct so I had to call central because on this email it says that we need to let know if we are going to waive some fines from collection because they need to update it at central.

Library Hours

...THINK ABOUT THE LIBRARY HOURS BEING REQUIRED EACH SEMESTER? A library is a place where all the collection of books, periodicals, newspapers, manuscripts, maps, prints, etc. kept for reading and consultation to facilitate reference as by classification and indexing. In my own opinion, the library hours being required each semester is very much congruous and pertinent. It showcase the students the ability to give importance and to consider the library to be valuable despite the fact that they only depend upon the advances of technology, with just a click in the internet, everything will be given and all you have to do is to copy and paste without reading the details and tidings. Disseminating the library hours will bestow the dexterity of the students in terms of searching with understandings regarding the problem, assignments and projects. Through this, it will enhance more the capability of the student’s to be assertive in what they’re thinking, doing and sharing because “Libraries are not made; they grow.” IS IT SOMETHING THAT MUST EVEN BE REQUIRED OF YOU OR SOMETHING YOU OUGHT TO BE DOING EVEN WITHOUT PROMPTING? Library hours are not necessary; I guess an individual has its own way on how he/she is comfortable in gaining information or researching, whether through the internet, library or any other tracks or researching, but as of this moment, I do believe that library hours should be a requisite because it opens up the mind and to deliver that a library still exist,......

...performance will be stronger for those students who spend more time outside of class studying than for students who spend less time studying. With this study, we attempted to fill this void in the literature. First, we attempted to determine the direct relationship that time spent on academics outside of class and working had on academic performance among business students. Second, we attempted to determine whether the time spent on academics outside of class interacts with variables, such as student ability and motivation, in influencing the academic performance of business students. Hypotheses Tested It is commonly believed that students who spend more time on academicrelated activities outside of class (e.g., reading the text, completing assignments, studying, and preparing reports) are better performers than students who spend less time on these activities. There is some empirical support for this belief. For example, Pascarella and Terenzini 152 Journal of Education for Business (1991) found that the study habits of freshmen relate significantly to their first year cumulative grade point average (GPA). In their investigation of 143 college students, McFadden and Dart (1992) reported that total study time influenced expected course grades. In contrast, Mouw and Khanna (1993) did not find study habits to significantly improve the explanatory power of the first year cumulative GPA of college students. Ackerman and Gross (2003) have found more recently that students......

Independent Learning and Role of the University Library in Conducting Research Assignment

...Hamza Ufitabe Gafurama 14002299 Information Systems Independent Learning and Role of the University Library in Conducting Research Assignment 1. How to Narrow Information When a topic is too broad that is not manageable you will find that there is too much information and therefore the focus would have to be narrowed. To help narrow focus a few simple questions can help achieve this • what you know or don’t know about the topic? • what time period you covering • what place or geographic area you will be covering • trying to focus your topic in terms of specific type or class, people, places or things e.g study of traffic patterns • choose one lens through which to view the research problem, e.g rather than studying the role of government in Eastern religions, study the role of government in Hinduism You can apply one or two of strategies above to determine if that gives you a manageable research problem to investigate. Combining multiple strategies risks creating the opposite problem, your topic may become too narrowly defined and you can't locate enough research or data to support your study. 2. How to Evaluate Information Questions that should be asked when evaluating sources. • • • • • • 3. How information was found - where information was found web or library catalog? where you found the information will help in determining its usefulness. Who is the intended audience - knowing the intended audience will help decide the......

...people get when they walk into this library. Perfume and cologne smell lingers in the air. Tall ceilings with gigantic round light fixtures that hang down, with the lights dimmed. As I walked in, it was so calm and peaceful. Rows and rows of books. Magazines and books lying everywhere. The new books felt smooth, the old books made crinkly noises as you turned the pages and the old table had many rough spots. Artificial trees and plants stand in almost every corner of the library, giving it a unique and beautiful look. A magnificent oil painting, located over the fireplace made you feel at home. The librarian was young with auburn colored hair that she had up in a bun, glasses hanging on a multicolored chain to her chest and her dress was all flower print. The carpet is made thick and comfy so the sound of people walking by won’t disturb the focused students sitting in the library. I could hear nothing but the quiet peaceful sounds of paper turning and minds thinking at their best. Telephone ringing, copy machines and whispers is all you really hear in the library. All different ages of people go to the library to just relax and read in a calm setting environment because in libraries the noise is very minimal. The librarians are very kind and helpful. Quiet rooms were occupied by students preparing for a test. Different areas of the library were occupied by many high school and college students. The young adults get great use out of the library for use of the free internet......

...Independent firm Lighthouse Research & Development recently compared Linux technical support providers and found enterprises using Novell’s Linux support continue to report higher levels of satisfaction than customers using Linux support from Red Hat and Oracle. These reports are consistent with a similar study conducted by Lighthouse Research in 2007. Whether it was customer support in the field, by phone or over the web, customers using SUSE Linux Enterprise benefitted from the best customer support on the market. In addition, this article also recognized that for the fourth year in a row, Novell has been named “Best Web Support” by the Association of Support Professionals. This study gathered the opinions of technical personnel at companies who have used Linux support services provided by Novell, Oracle, and Red Hat within the previous 12 months. This reported that out of the users rating percentages for these three distributions, Novell was 71 percent, which was 6 percent higher than Oracle users and 10 percent higher than Red Hat users. It also showed the differences for mixed-platform environments, which were even more pronounced. Novel was rated a 7 or higher by 70 percent of respondents, compared to 59 percent for Red Hat and 44 percent for Oracle. It goes on to recognize that Novell technical support personnel are highly knowledgeable and experienced to produce one of the best technical support and services organizations.

Library Secure

...this allow students to work on assignments and access the internet anywhere. Books are very important in every side, it provide necessary information for studying and living. Raffles in Ho Chi Minh also has a Library located in the highest floor of the building which provides students all reading materials that imported and updated with the current teaching course and subject. However, the number of students is growing quickly when the books and reading materials are limited. Students are not allowed to borrow the book home and they usually cannot buy the books because of the high cost of copyrighted books Because of that, we write this proposal to suggest about opening an online e- library system for student in Raffles Ho Chi Minh to use books material easily. The system will provide a website for students to read e-books (electronic online books) and reserve to borrow book from the library. The system also control the books logically to make sure it will be returned on time and won’t be lost Moreover, the system provides reference e-books such as Making the Grade, Communication Skills, etc. Books which contain meaningful story relate to the study course will appear in the website also. The e-libraries have the potential to store much more information, simply because digital information requires very little physical space to contain it. As such, the cost of maintaining an e-library is much lower than that of a normal library. Opening e-library system for Raffles student......
