...It is not difficult to find examples of Scientific Management in the 21st Century; the car and computer manufacturing plants, the work environments we go to everyday, the hospitals we are treated in and even some of the restaurants we might eat in, - almost all of them function more efficiently due to the application of Scientific Management. In fact, these methods of working seem so commonplace and so logical to a citizen of the modern world that it is almost impossible to accept that they were revolutionary only 100 years ago.  Although Scientific Management does play an important role in the 21st century, it is necessary to note that this method of management contains weaknesses that limit its influence in current work environments, and consequently not all of its tenants are applicable to modern organizations. Scientific Management is perhaps best seen as an evolutionary stage in management ever developing history. This essay will attempt to highlight both the strengths and weaknesses of Scientific Management in context of the 21st century through examination of its application in several modern organizations.  Scientific Management was developed in the first quarter of the 20th Century; its father is commonly accepted to be F.W. Taylor, although some variations of the theory have been developed by Gantt and Gilbreth. Taylor recognized labor productivity was largely inefficient due to a workforce that functioned by “rules of thumb,” and a mentality that equated......

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......

Scientific Method

...Ask a Question: The scientific method starts when you ask a question about something that you observe: How, What, When, Who, Which, Why, or Where? And, in order for the scientific method to answer the question it must be about something that you can measure, preferably with a number. Do Background Research: Rather than starting from scratch in putting together a plan for answering your question, you want to be a savvy scientist using library and Internet research to help you find the best way to do things and insure that you don't repeat mistakes from the past. Construct a Hypothesis: A hypothesis is an educated guess about how things work: "If _____[I do this] _____, then _____[this]_____ will happen."You must state your hypothesis in a way that you can easily measure, and of course, your hypothesis should be constructed in a way to help you answer your original question. Test Your Hypothesis by Doing an Experiment: Your experiment tests whether your hypothesis is supported or not. It is important for your experiment to be a fair test. You conduct a fair test by making sure that you change only one factor at a time while keeping all other conditions the same. You should also repeat your experiments several times to make sure that the first results weren't just an accident . Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion: Once your experiment is complete, you collect your measurements and analyze them to see if they support your hypothesis or not. Scientists often find......

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?

...Scientific Method and Steps in Scientific Inquiry Paper Scientific Method and Steps in Scientific Inquiry Paper This paper will focus on the scientific method and how it relates to human services research. The steps in the scientific method will be addressed, as well as why they are important and need to be included to support the scientific method. I will briefly discuss how the scientific research method was applied in the article that I found. Lastly, I will summarize how scientifically sound research supports the function of a human services manager. There are six steps in the scientific method. According to Creswell (2012), they are; identifying a research problem, reviewing the literature, specifying a purpose for research, collecting data, analyzing and interpreting the data, and reporting and evaluating research. Each of the steps in the scientific method need to be included to support the scientific method because without it information will be missing. The first step in the scientific method is to ask a question. You need to have a question so you can search for the answer. The second step is to review the literature. This means to locate, select, and summarize resources. The third step is to specify a purpose for the research. This means you identify the purpose statement, and narrow down the purpose statement to research questions, or hypotheses. The fourth step in the scientific method is to collecting data. This means gathering information, permission,......

...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......

...Scientific Inventions That Changed Medicine for Providers and Patients. Jason Robert Luedeman UMUC 13 June 2016 X Rays and the History of Radiography X-rays were discovered in 1895 by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen (1845-1923) who was a Professor at Wuerzburg University in Germany. Working with a cathode-ray tube in his laboratory, Roentgen observed a fluorescent glow of crystals on a table near his tube. The tube that Roentgen was working with consisted of a glass envelope (bulb) with positive and negative electrodes encapsulated in it. The air in the tube was evacuated, and when a high voltage was applied, the tube produced a fluorescent glow. Roentgen shielded the tube with heavy black paper, and discovered a green colored fluorescent light generated by a material located a few feet away from the tube. He concluded that a new type of ray was being emitted from the tube. This ray was capable of passing through the heavy paper covering and exciting the phosphorescent materials in the room. He found that the new ray could pass through most substances casting shadows of solid objects. Roentgen also discovered that the ray could pass through the tissue of humans, but not bones and metal objects. One of Roentgen's first experiments late in 1895 was a film of the hand of his wife, Bertha. It is interesting that the first use of X-rays were for an industrial (not medical) application, as Roentgen produced a radiograph of a set of weights in a box to show his colleagues ......

...4208 REV: JANUARY 4, 2011 STEVEN C. WHEELWRIGHT WILLIAM SCHMIDT Scientific Glass, Inc.: Inventory Management In January 2010, Ava Beane, the newly hired Manager of Inventory Planning for Scientific Glass (SG), contemplated the critical nature of her first big project with the company. During her interviews for the job, several executives had told her very directly that the company’s need for a more effective way to manage its inventory was urgent. At the time, Beane had felt confident she could address the problem quickly and meaningfully. Now on the job for several weeks, Beane was gaining a fuller appreciation of the difficulties of the task. Until recently, SG had treated inventory management as largely an afterthought. As a fastgrowing organization with annual sales of $86 million, the company historically emphasized the twin goals of continued sales growth and high customer satisfaction. During the past year, however, executives at the company had identified a disturbing trend: Inventory balances were increasing substantially, which tied up extra capital the company needed to fund its growing operations. In recent years the company exceeded its target debt to total capital ratio of 40%. If this trend persisted, it could jeopardize SG’s ability to fund a planned expansion into new international markets. Beane was given four weeks to come up with recommendations on how to make the inventory plan support the company’s sales and customer-service......
