  1. 1. + Praxis: Where Theory Meets Practice In Aviation and Librarianship SLA Rio Grande Chapter 4 November 2010 by Sara R. Tompson with Eric Sharp 1. AGENDA 2. Introductions – around the room 3. Definition 4. Aviation Theory into Practice overview 5. Librarianship Theory into Practice overview 6. DIY!
  2. 2. + Definitions  Praxis: “Action or practice; spec. the practice or exercise of a technical subject or art, as distinct from the theory of it” (OED)  Aviation: Foundation = physics theories that are demonstrably provable and immutable; largely a science  Librarianship: A profession because of theoretical foundations; mostly a social “science;” will use cataloging/classification illustration -- most structured, least mutable aspect 2 / Rio Grande SLA November 2010
  3. 3. + Foundational Theories of Flight: Atmosphere 3 / Rio Grande SLA November 2010 R.Sharp mod of FAA illus. E.g.: Air = 14.7 PSI; based on column of air from sea level to stratosphere. Flight is based upon and obeys laws or rules of our universe. Including the laws of fluid dynamics – these apply to air as well as water.
  4. 4. + Foundational Theories of Flight: Wings/Airfoils (Newton, 1643-1728; Bernoulli, 1700-1782) 4 / Rio Grande SLA November 2010 R.Sharp and S. Tompson mod of FAA illus. A wing is a “foil.” as are airplane and boat propellers; they reduce turbulence and create down pressure. Molecules of air deflect off the bottom of the wing; per Newton, the wing is pushed up. ~ 70% of “lift” comes from this action. The air molecules going OVER the top of the wing MUST reach the end at the same time as those going under it, so they have to go faster, so lower pressure per Bernoulli. ~ 30% of “lift” is due to this decreased pressure.
  5. 5. + Foundational Theories of Flight: 4 Forces of Flight (Straight & Level = Zero ratios: Lift=Weight, Thrust=Drag) 5 / Rio Grande SLA November 2010 R.Sharp mod of FAA illus. See this NASA site for kids and teachers for really good explanations! WWW/K- 12/airplane/thrust1.html
  6. 6. + Foundational Theories of Flight: The Stall illustrates an imbalance in the forces; you can only bend the rules so far! 6 / Rio Grande SLA November 2010 R.Sharp mod of FAA illus. The angles measured in degrees are “angles of attack” – the airfoil in relation to the fluid air. Slow flight, less air molecules going over wing; must increase angle of attack to get more molecules travelling; BUT over ~ 18 degrees of angle, uneven fluid flow, eddies in the air current – like in a stream around rocks; too much eddying, the airfoil is said to “stall.”
  7. 7. + Foundational Theories of Flight: Let’s Do It! Stall Practice Illustrated 7 / Rio Grande SLA November 2010 From Wikiversity Airplane Flying Handbook
  8. 8. +  Charles Jewett (1816-1868): “Universal Catalog” requires some standardization and cooperation  Charles Cutter (1837-1903): “The convenience to the public is always to be set before the ease of the cataloger”; make items discoverable for users  Seymour Lubetzy (1893-2003): Principle of Authorship (personal AND corporate) as key access point; also findability; translations  Paris Principles, 1961: natural title standardization; entries and headings guides; reemphasis on Jewett and Cutter objectives  1940s: ALA and LC back and forth; bibliographic description-based; format types expanded; differentiation of serials, monographs (from: Chan, Lois May. Cataloging and Classification. 3rd ed. (Lanham, MD: Scarecrow Press, 2007). Foundational Theories of Cataloging 8 / Rio Grande SLA November 2010
  9. 9. +  1960s to date: AACR and daughters: entry and description RULES; 2=international standardization; more on nonprint; punctuation standards; hierarchy of rules  MARC (1960s to date): Fixed coded fields; format, punctuation, separation standards for other record fields; 856 field for urls; etc.  LCSH (1898 to date): Hierarchical taxonomy of subject headings; arguably users’ favorite entry point; “authority” and “control” key concepts that aid discoverability – Also NAME authority lists  Metadata Schemas (1990s to date): Dublin Core, MODS, etc.  Social tagging/folksonomies: Fun but chaotic? Your thoughts.. (most from: Chan, Lois May. Cataloging and Classification. 3rd ed. (Lanham, MD: Scarecrow Press, 2007). Foundational Theories of Cataloging, contin. 9 / Rio Grande SLA November 2010
  10. 10. + Cataloging Example: Even LC varies! 10 What are some of these fields?! What would you do different locally? / Rio Grande SLA November 2010
  11. 11. + Illustrating Aviation: Paper Gliders! *Prizes*! Fastest praxis; furthest flight; closest guess on LC or Dewey call # 11 / Rio Grande SLA November 2010 KWW method which I can demonstrate! OR….
