their best interests to seek the most efficient and scalable

Variable fonts give us a new, wide open typographic space with which

vacuum, we should take a hybrid and calculated approach to variable
font interfaces. How do we structure our design tools to adapt to the
new advantages variable fonts provide us with?"

Does Accessibility Slow Down the Development Process?

By Andrea Fercia.

"I've been focusing on web accessibility for a few years now. One of
the complaints I've often heard from business owners and managers is
that implementing accessibility is hard and slows down the development
process. For this reason, sometimes accessibility gets postponed or
set aside in the erroneous belief that's something that can be 'added'
later. Here, I'd like to share my thoughts on why I think the first
statement is misleading. I'll also discuss why postponing
accessibility is an ineffective process that can add a considerable
amount of time to your development process."

What the Winn-Dixie Case Means for the Future of Web Accessibility

By Elisa Edelberg.

"…discrimination means if you decide to do something for the general
public, the general public includes people with disabilities.
Therefore whatever you do that is effective and meaningful for the
general public must also be effective and meaningful for an individual
with a disability. In terms of mobile and web - if you choose to
communicate with your audience or customers via these platforms, then
they must be accessible for all…"

Web Truths: CSS is Not Real Programming

By Christian Heilmann.

"…A lot of 'CSS is not real programming' arguments are a basic
misunderstanding what CSS is there to achieve. If you want full

it. If you want to build an interface for an inclusive and diverse
web, CSS is a great tool. Writing CSS is describing interfaces and

DATABASE SEARCHING SKILLS : PEER REVIEW : DATABASE SELECTION : DIFFICULT TOPICS TO RESEARCH: Coupling a Dance with Discovery Services or Social Work Citation Analysis with Engineering : Improving Ones Database Searching Skills with Database Knowledge

David P. Dillard
 

Many students, teachers and professionals have difficulty finding answers and relevant sources for their research questions. Part of this problem is caused because database and search engine users have not learned what each search tool does and does not do and how to make the search tools do things that are not options on the links they provide for narrowing or modifying a search. For example, Google Scholar does not provide links to narrow searches to specific types of publications such as "peer reviewed", "qualitative research", "quantitative research" or "evidence based", but one can add these, any or all of them, in a search statement to require that the results found from the search have any or all of these qualities.
Some found sources will have these qualities after a search, others will mention these phrases for other reasons. But including peer reviewed as one of the search terms is likely, for example, to find some or most of the results are from peer reviewed journals. Two discovery services from ProQuest that are available to all internet users from at least some of the subscribers have peer reviewed as a limiting opition for search results. This is a stronger option than including peer reviewed in the search strategy. Proquest also owns Ulrich's Periodicals Directory which indicates if a journal is referred (i.e peer reviewed). Proquest is probably using this data in Ulrich's as an authority file to determine which journal articles in Summon and Primo are peer reviewed.


I came across a request to know if there were peer reviewed articles about a specific dance as a college professor requires peer reviewed articles about such dances as sources in a writing assignment, so I sent these links to the client.

Penn State Summon Search

http://tinyurl.com/y8ckvygn

.


Temple Primo Search

http://tinyurl.com/yawhl8rs

.


Google Scholar

http://tinyurl.com/yd647tyj


The top two links in this case are clearly the most important.
If you want to search other dances, simply change the name of the dance in each search and click on the peer reviewed link on the left sidebar in Summon and Primo and add it as a search term in Google Scholar.


Knowledge of databases also extends, among many other things, to whether a database only indexes the core journals in the specific discipline it covers or finds related content in journals outside its field or goes even wider than that and indexes content irrelevant to its field from seemingly irrevant journals. Clearly the wider a databases coverage, the better the chances on will find sources on topics on the borderline or beyond of a subject discipline focused database.

In this regard, consider this journal article citation from the Inspec database.

"Inspec: Engineering Research Database

Inspec, a comprehensive engineering research database provides the academic, industry, and government sectors with an intuitive, searchable engineering database that covers a wide variety of fields. Inspec provides engineering research information on physics, electrical engineering and electronics, computers and control, mechanical, production engineering, information technology and more."

https://www.elsevier.com/solutions/engineering-village/content/inspec


The citation found in INSPEC

Finding citations to social work literature: the relative benefits of using web of science, scopus, or google scholar
Lasda Bergman, E.M. (Bibliographer for Social Welfare, Gerontology & Dewey Reference, Univ. at Albany, Albany, NY, United States)
Source: Journal of Academic Librarianship, v 38, n 6, p 370-9, Nov. 2012
Database:Inspec

Searching this article title so important to social work faculty and graduate students, not to mention those in related fields like psychology or sociology in Social Work Abstracts or Social Services Abstracts finds a null result as the Journal of Academic Librarianship is apparently irrelevant to social work in the judgement of the producers of these databases.

This means sources that are important to your research will often not be found in a databases where they "should" be found but will be found in databases that are unlikely sources for this content. One type of database, the general all topic database, is an extremely important place to look for such sources. Google Scholar, Google Books, Google, and Penn State Summon when one looks at all Summon Libraries using a link to search beyond Penn State for Summon citations. Google Scholar, Google Books, Summon and Primo are important tools for finding scholarly research articles and books that cross interdisciplinary lines of the search topic.

Also one must be aware of changes in how databases work and often in the case of Google this is not for the better.

Google Uncle Sam, a valuable database of United States government sources, often full text, was eliminated

Google Blog search was also eliminated

Google News Archive that want back with news reports for over two centuries was eliminated and then later replaces with just the newspaper content Google itself had digitized.

Google News no longer covers news reports from 2000 to the present, but is now little more than a daily news source with only the current day's news.

Just in the last week or two, using Google Scholar, one must select Artcles or Case Law on the outside page forcing one to save their search strategy on Word, Notepad or the like and reuse it inside Google Scholar and then returning to Google Scholar

http://scholar.google.com

and back inside rather than switching inside with a search already done.

Also one no longer can click on CITE to get source citations in six formats, one must click on a quotation mark to get the same result.

Google Scholar Citation Example

BOOK AND FILM REVIEWS: Revolutionary View of the History of Science: The Structure of Scientific Revolutions TS Kuhn - The Physics Teacher, 1970 - aapt.scitation.org Our nevv FKB-120 l ntroductory Kit cornbines fluid mechanics and digital logic to demonstrate practical fluidic circuits. It's an ideal way to introduce students to the nevv discipline of fluidics, the fast-growing technology now recognized as the practical solution to Cited by 97751 Related articles All 88 versions Library Search

On the left side of the bottom line one finds the quotation mark which when clicked provides six citation options incluing MLA and APA

One also finds a left bracket on the right side of this line that links directly to the free web version of Worldcat which amongst other things provides the user with a list of libraries that own the source cited in Google Books for publications with a Worldcat record. Right handed brackets in the same location provide a "cached record" from another source for the item in the Google Scholar citation.

In short, relearning is a big part of database search skill learning.

Mobile UX Isn't Just About Breakpoints

By Thomas Fogarasy.

"…Responsive design, therefore, should not be used for its own sake,
or because it's the modern way of creating interfaces. Before jumping
into it's toolset, and starting to rearrange boxes, clear goals should
be set based on how, where, and why people will eventually interact
with the product you design."

    AMP pages are hosted on your own domain. I don't think those
    statements are even truthy, much less true. In fact, if I were looking
    for the right term to semantically describe any one of those
    statements, the closest in meaning would be this: A statement used
    intentionally for the purpose of deception. That is the dictionary

    auto-update as soon as users change the quantity (don't use 'Update'
    links and only auto-update as users leave the field (i.e., don't use
    the 'OnBlur' event), and 2.) allow for 'quantity: 0' as a
    supplementary way to delete items, but ask users to confirm their
    choice (depending on the user's page context). Yet, it's currently 86%

    ideas because they lack time, managerial support, and a methodology
    for conducting effective ideation sessions."

    Databases with Content Regarding Computer Science and Information Science


    This past Summer I launched a research guide for Computer and Information
    Science. The first and only complete section of this guide is the list of
    databases that provide sources related to this field based on a search of
    terminology used in teaching this subject area. This list is very long as
    I also include a substantial list of citations from about 70% of the
    databases included as well as indication of the number of sources in each
    database searched.  I suspect in some of these databases, there would be a
    wealth of content about digital marketing that should be useful to any   
    involved with digital marketing.
