Reframing the Narrative: Librarians as Innovators in the Past and Present

This paper examines the revolutionary impact librarians had on American higher education in the late 19th century. Librarians were transformative agents in the evolution of today’s American higher education. The argument that libraries aren’t “just books,” reinforces negative perceptions and undermines the legacy of innovation and impact of historical librarians and library staff. We will benefit from better understanding our role in transforming higher education in the past, and championing our legacy as innovators.

Luminous Elegies: Chăm Family Documentary in Phước Lập, Vietnam

Underhill offers these family portraits from 1999 and 2006 as an extended elegy for her grandmother.

Reflections on the Study of Dream Speech

Dream speech is an understudied area of dream research worthy of attention for its potential to shed light on the nature of the interactions between the dream-self and dream-others, the patterns of discourse that occur among dream characters, and the structure and content of dream speech itself. The history of the study of dream speech is surveyed. Investigation of the structure and content of dream speech points to interesting similarities and differences in waking, imagined, and dreamed speech. Dream speech data support recent evidence that higher-order cognitive activity is a feature of dreaming no less than of waking thought. The study of dream speech offers a window on understanding dream structure and content more broadly.

How Can Libraries Improve Wikipedia?
