  • Abstract:

    Just as silly messages get distorted when playing the classic game of “telephone,” scientific research can get distorted when it goes from a scholarly publication to university press release and then out to the popular media. This activity asks students to trace a scientific claim back to the original source while evaluating what distortions may have been introduced in the process.

    Abstract:

    This is a PDF of the website “Inter Folia Fructus: Recent Acquisition in Medieval British Studies.” Originally created as a counterpart to a physical exhibit in the Rare Books and Special Collection Exhibit Room in 1999, this website provides digital access to the bibliographic information and some digital images.

  • Abstract:

    The Introduction of the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education encourages teaching faculty to design “curricula and assignments that foster enhanced engagement with the core ideas about information and scholarship within their disciplines.” However, disciplinary faculty are often unsure how to facilitate student engagement with information literacy in an effective way and may not even be aware that they are communicating these concepts to their students. Librarians have an o…

    Abstract:

    Disclosed are then inorganic membranes having a defined topography that includes pores having a defined diameter of nanometer and sub-nanometer diameter. The thin membranes are resistant to protein denaturing agents, and may be employed in analytical and clinical methods for identifying single amino acid residues within the sequence of a protein and the pores are other than NspA pores. Methods for making a thin inorganic membrane with nanopore and sub-nanopore topography and conical cone stru…

  • Abstract:

    The present invention relates to DNAzymes (also known as deoxyribozymes, DNA enzymes, catalytic DNA, or DZ), which are conjugated to nanoparticles (NP) to facilitate the detection of nucleic acids. One aspect of the invention relates to compounds comprising DNAzymes conjugated to nanoparticles (DZ-NP), such as metallic or gold nanoparticles, and methods for their synthesis. Another aspect of the invention relates to methods of using the conjugated compounds to detect nucleic acids, such as ge…

    Abstract:

    As climate changes, coastal homeowners are potentially crucial actors in reducing the risks to property and human life from rising seas and increased hurricane activity. Absent strict, enforceable regulations mandating retrofitting of existing homes or major changes in homeowner insurance requirements, coastal resilience in a changing climate will largely reflect private, voluntary decisions of millions of individuals. However, research is scarce on the current risk level of U.S. coastal home…

    Abstract:

    It is my view that a bookplate should reflect the donor’s interests and accomplishments as well as the symbols of the library where the collection is housed. The accomplishments and reputation of Marston Morse are so great that my first task, after studying hls life and career, was to somehow narrow my choices from dozens of significant milestones to a meaningful and manageable few.

  • Abstract:

    The Badin Bible, a 1790 Mathew Carey Douay-Rheims Bible in English published in Philadelphia, was acquired by the Special Collections department of the Hesburgh Libraries in July 2014. The Bible was likely a gift from Bishop John Carroll to Stephen Badin on the occasion of his ordination to the priesthood in 1793. Badin later served as a missionary in Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan. He ministered to Native Americans in northern Indiana, and purchased the land that now is the Univer…
