Davies, Paul – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2007
The origin of life is one of the great outstanding mysteries of science. People do not know whether life occurs because of an extraordinary fluke of chemistry that is unique to earth, or whether the universe is teeming with life. But either way, they can be sure of one thing: The universe permits life in at least one location. That basic fact,…

Aho, Melissa K.; Beschnett, Anne M.; Reimer, Emily Y. – Public Services Quarterly, 2010
Student workers have always been a traditional and valuable component to the smooth running of many academic health sciences libraries. However, in recent years many libraries have redefined student workers' roles to extend beyond their traditional scope due to a range of factors, such as loss of staff and budget cutbacks. The Bio-Medical Library…

Stevenson, Jill L.; Moore, Dale A.; Newman, Jerry; Schmidt, Janet L.; Smith, Sarah M.; Smith, Jean; Kerr, Susan; Wallace, Michael; BoyEs, Pat – Journal of Extension, 2011
4-H livestock projects present disease transmission risks that can be reduced by the use of bio-security practices. The responsibility of teaching bio-security to youth belongs primarily to volunteer leaders, who may not be aware of the importance of these practices. A needs assessment for an online educational module about bio-security revealed…
