Marketing and outreach to children have
many similar characteristics.To perform each
successfully, your library needs to have a specific
plan of implementation that includes who you want
to reach, why you should target that group, where
the population will be served, what you will market,
and when the effort will be implemented. There are
many books on library and nonprofit marketing
techniques as well as separate titles on outreach to
youth. This book supposes that marketing and outreach
are intertwined and should be pursued as
I shall commence this chapter by a description of Spanish Guiana (Provincia de la Guyana), which is a part of the ancient Capitania general of Caracas. Since the end of the sixteenth century three towns have successively borne the name of St. Thomas of Guiana. The first was situated opposite to the island of Faxardo, at the confluence of the Carony and the Orinoco, and was destroyed* by the Dutch, under the command of Captain Adrian Janson, in 1579. (* The first of the voyages undertaken at Raleigh's expense was in 1595; the second, that of Laurence Keymis, in...
From the desk of Tom Paulson, Director of Test-Taking Strategy at TOEFL Secrets, May 5, 2002Dear future TOEFL Success Story: Congratulations on your purchase of the most advanced test-taking manual for the TOEFL.

Our goal is to seek and exploit specific weaknesses in the TOEFL assessment, and then share those secrets with our customers. Let’s be perfectly honest here- you’ve worked hard enough in the past, and if you want to spend hours...
Because your score on the TOEFL exam can determine whether or not you are accepted into an aca
institution or program, it is important to prepare carefully for the exam.As you have probably noticed
are dozens of TOEFL exam preparation books available in libraries and bookstores. Most of these
provide you with practice TOEFL exams to help you become familiar with the format of the test. But
practice TOEFL exams will do little to boost your score if what you really need is to improve you

Like applying for a library card, it is a good idea to gain access to an Internet facility or site, particularly if you don't have a computer or Internet access at home. Again, many pub-lic libraries and institutions will allow you to use the Internet and computers at no extra cost.
Before you walk into a library and ask questions or log onto the Internet, it makes sense to be prepared. What essential tools or equipment do you need to start your research paper? The basic materials are easy to get your hands on and are surprisingly simple. To be prepared you
In most cases, you are not able to take out ref-erence books from a library. Sometimes, you can use and read books from a collection for a specific period of time before they have to be returned. If you need to take home the infor-mation, you can photocopy or print out com-puter listings of the material available to you.
Getting a library card and reading card at any one of these institutions will provide you with access to all kinds of invaluable books, maga-zines, maps, reference materials, rare collec-tions, and most important of all, knowledge-able librarians who can personally assist you in your research.
before you begin that process, it is a good idea to have a place to store all your index cards so they don't get lost and scattered. Also, if you need to visit several libraries and institutions while you are gathering your materials, you can take your index card holder with you wherever you go so that it becomes your per-sonal traveling desk. In this way, you will never be without your work and you can easily refer to what youVe done because your note cards are all in one place.
Almost every town and city has a public library, museum, or cultural institution that is open to everyone free of charge. If you don't live near a public library or your community doesn't have one, you can usually join and have access to a college or university library.
When the chronicle of computer languages is written, the following will be said:
B led to C, C evolved into C++, and C++ set the stage for Java. To understand
Java is to understand the reasons that drove its creation, the forces that
shaped it, and the legacy that it inherits. Like the successful computer languages that
came before, Java is a blend of the best elements of its rich heritage combined with the
innovative concepts required by its unique environment.
This book will introduce you to one of the most important extensions to PHP that are available, starting with PHP version 5.0—the PHP Data Objects, commonly known as PDO.
PHP grew in to a very popular web programming language due to its simplicity and ease of use. One of the key factors of this growing success is the built-in possibility to access many popular relational database management systems (RDBMS), such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite, to name just a few.
Success in writing and winning grants comes through practice-based effort,
sustained enthusiasm, tenacity, and a commitment to turn temporary set-
backs (i.e., proposal rejections) into renewed efforts and grant awards.
Few educators or librarians begin their professional careers prepared to par-
ticipate in the grant seeking process. As their careers evolve, they recognize
and understand economic realities. Without supplemental funding, schools
and their media centers are often forced to choose between essential and

The success of an open operating system for smartphones is closely
linked to the degree to which the functionality of lower levels of software
and hardware can be accessed, modified, and augmented by add-on
software and hardware. Java MIDP 1.0 allowed only modest access to
underlying Symbian OS functionality. Java MIDP 2.0 exploits it much
more fully and this book brings you the most up-to-date information
available for programming Java MIDP 2.0 for Symbian OS. As Java MIDP
2.0 smartphones begin to ship in volume in 2004, we are witnessing the
coming of a third wave of mobile phones....
