Building Web Sites for Classes
Learn On Line
Learn On Line is a project
currently underway at
the Digital Media Center
to promote the use of
the World-Wide Web as a
tool for teaching and
learning.
During the next year, the Digital
Media Center (DMC) team will
work with faculty who teach large
enrollment classes at the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities
campus. These faculty members
collectively teach 10,000 students
per quarter. Instructors of the 40
courses with the highest enrollment were invited to place their
courses on the World-Wide Web.
The Learn On Line program is now
in the first phase of development.
The faculty work with DMC team
members to create web sites for
their large enrollment class. These
web sites may include course
elements such as general class
management (for example, syllabus, TA office hours, class notes,
assignments, etc.), textbook
supplements (e.g. links to on-line
journals and information), library
resources, daily updated information (such as CNN News), multimedia information, interactive
tutorials, and on-line quizzes or
exams. Another option is to
include a software program called
Web Crossing, which allows users
to create easy-to-use discussion
groups on the web for their students.
Digital Media Center team members developed a web document
template that Learn On Line
participants use to design their web
course materials. The Learn On
Line template is a series of actual
web pages containing required
University of Minnesota Web
policy statements and web etiquette tips. The DMC created a
“Libraries On Line” page as a
feature of the template that includes links to LUMINA and many
other on-line databases. You will
find the template at <http://
learnonline.micro.umn.edu
/template>.
Learn On Line will have a home
page at <http://learnonline
.micro.umn.edu/>.

Looking for Art Information On-line
What’s the Wisenheimer?
Nancy K. Herther, Manager, Integrated Information Center, University Libraries
We all have bad days, and for this
library caller seeking information on
the new Frederick R. Weisman Art
Museum, it was clearly not the best
day! However you pronounce it — and
regardless of what you think of the
building — if you want information on the
Weisman or any other art topic, we have it for you in
the Libraries!
Try the University’s Web Page
By checking out the University’s Web page, you can
get good, general information on the Museum itself
<http://hudson.acad.umn.edu/>: the building
was designed by Frank Gehry and completed in 1993,
the design — especially the reflective, stainless steel
exterior — is distinctive and award-winning. The
building houses the collection of over 13,000 objects,
and the museum provides tours and other educational
programs in addition to having public viewing hours.
Applied Science & Technology Index
Need information on how buildings are being built
today? Trends in design? Energy efficiency or other
key areas?
Try this database from the H.W. Wilson Company,
which contains over 650,000 citations to articles, book
reviews, interviews, new product reviews, and selected
editorials and letters to the editor in 390 Englishlanguage publications in the applied sciences and
technology. It covers the construction industry,
electric and electronics industry, energy resources and
research, fire and fire prevention, mathematics,
physics, plastics, textiles, transportation. It also cover
the following engineering fields: chemical, civil,
electrical, environmental, industrial, mechanical,
mining, nuclear, and telecommunications.
The database corresponds to the printed Applied
Science & Technology Index. It covers English-language
materials from 1983 to the present. About 5000 new
articles are added each month.
You Want More?
That much was pretty easy. But what if you need
information on the architect? Or critiques of some of
the art works? What if you want to get more information on the variety of ways in which art education is
being applied today? Perhaps you want to get information on other innovative museum buildings or the
use of stainless steel as a building material? You need
go no further than the collections and on-line databases of the University Libraries!
Here are just a few databases with information of
value in studying art, architecture and art appreciation; all are available from your desktop through
LUMINA online.

ITN ● September 1996
?
Art Index
Want information on artists, works of art, the cost of
art and the business of collecting?
The Art Index database from H.W. Wilson Company
includes over 260,000 citations to articles and book
reviews in approximately 268 periodicals, yearbooks,
and museum bulletins published primarily in the
United States and Europe. It covers archaeology,
architecture, art history, city planning, crafts, landscape architecture, film, fine arts, folk art, graphic arts,
industrial design, interior design, and photography.
The database corresponds to the printed Art Index. It is
international in scope, covers from September 1984 to
the present, and is updated monthly.

Arts & Humanities Citation Index
Looking for information on a subject or perhaps
commentary by influential artists or critics?
Produced by the U.S. Department of Education, ERIC
contains over 850,000 citations, with abstracts, to
both journal and report literature in the field of
education and education-related areas. Journal literature corresponds to the printed Current Index to Journals in Education (CIJE). Report literature corresponds
to the printed Resources in Education (RIE) index.
Produced by the Institute for Scientific Information
(ISI), this database contains bibliographic data on
items from over 1100 arts and humanities journals.
Also includes individually selected relevant items from

resources, from 1966 to the present. The database is
updated monthly.
Corresponding to the printed Arts & Humanities
Citation Index, the database covers architecture, art,
Asian studies, classics, dance, film, TV, and radio. This
database is also international in focus and covers 1980
to the present.
z
Dissertation Abstracts Online
Every good Ph.D. knows that a thesis is a good place
to get a good, thorough review of the literature or
current thinking on some topic. That’s true for art
topics as well.
This database from UMI contains over 1.1 million
citations, with abstracts (since 1980), to dissertations
accepted for doctoral degrees by accredited North
American educational institutions and more than 200
institutions elsewhere.
Dissertation Abstracts Online corresponds to the
coverage in Dissertation Abstracts International (DAI),
American Doctoral Dissertations (ADD), and Comprehensive Dissertation Index (CDI). The database provides in–
depth abstracts to the doctoral dissertations accepted
at accredited American institutions in approximately
3000 subject areas; also masters theses and some
dissertations from Canadian and overseas institutions.
For doctoral dissertations, indexing is available going
back to 1861.
!
Newspaper Abstracts and
Magazine Index Plus
These two separate files provide excellent general
coverage to popular opinion, commentary and current
events. Together they contains over 2.5 million
citations, with abstracts, to articles from more than 25
major newspapers; approximately 1600 generalinterest, professional, and scholarly periodicals; and
70 television news and current affairs programs.
Subjects include business, science, education, current
affairs, arts, health, sports, economics, health, fitness,
social problems, government, technology, history,
literature, psychology, and sociology.
Coverage is limited to U.S. publications. The databases
cover periodicals from 1986 to the present and newspapers from 1980 to the present.

PsycINFO
What makes one thing attractive and something else
not? Do you have to understand art to appreciate it?
Questions like these are covered in the psychological
literature and this database.
Produced by the American Psychological Association,
PsycINFO contains over 1,000,000 citations, with
abstracts, to the worldwide literature dealing with
psychology and the behavioral sciences. It covers both
human and animal aspects in most of these fields:
animal psychology; applied psychology; communication and language; cultural influences and social
issues; developmental psychology; education; neurology and physiology; perception and motor performance; personality; physical and psychological
disorders; psychometrics and statistics. PsycINFO also
covers the psychology and behavior of groups and
organizations in addition to that of individuals.
Sources include more than 1300 periodicals as well as
technical reports, dissertations, and other materials.
From 1967 to 1979, it corresponds to the printed
Psychological Abstracts. Beginning in 1980, the database contains more citations than the printed publication.
The database is international in focus and covers the
current three years of data. Over 4200 new records are
added each month.

Social Sciences Index & SocioAbs
Both these databases provide a good range of materials
related in current events, public planning and related
information.
ITN ● September 1996
Social Sciences Index is international in focus, updated monthly and covers February 1983 to the
present.
SocioAbs, from Sociological Abstracts, Inc., contains
information on sociology and social policy. It covers
citations, with abstracts, to articles from more than
1900 journals and serials covering the social sciences,
including social welfare, planning and policy, and
development, as applied to specific settings and
situations.
SocioAbs corresponds to the printed index, Social
Planning, Policy & Development Abstracts and the
printed index Sociological Abstracts. The database is
international in focus, updated bimonthly and covers
1963 to the present.
The Libraries offer access to over 200 CD-ROM databases, thousands of printed indexes and reference

Nonsponsored Reports
are Now Available on the Web
an Update from the Grants Management Project
Business Services, Financial Systems grants@cafe.tc.umn.edu
Three new financial reports made their
debut on the web in August (Figure 1). These reports are especially
useful to departmental accounting
staff. The Organization Budget
Status Report, and the Expense
Transaction Detail and Revenue Transaction Detail Reports, were developed by the
Reporting Structure and Development Team of the
Grants Management Project.
Organization Budget Status
The Organization Budget Status Report on the web
(Figure 2) is similar to the mainframe UA821 report,
which is used to monitor orgs. The report allows the
user to evaluate expenditure and revenue patterns
(variance reporting) as well as known commitments.
This report is updated each accounting period close.
Revenue and Expense
Transaction Detail
The Revenue and Expense Transaction Detail Reports are similar to
the UA611/UG201. These reports
provide detail transactions by
object/subobject/revenue/
subrevenue for use in monitoring
both sponsored and nonsponsored
accounts. These are mandatory
reports, as designated by Internal
Audit. The primary use of these
reports is to reconcile accounts.
(For reconciling, the department’s
equivalent of an “open” file is
checked. Transactions which
appear on the reports have been
processed, or are “closed,” and can
be placed in a closed file).
submitted documents were entered and accepted by
the system, and that it is the appropriate period/fiscal
year/grant year. The report columns have ending
totals which match the monthly revenue, expense and
budget transaction totals on the UA821, Organization
Budget Status Report, and the UG213. These reports
are also updated each accounting period close.
View or Download a Report
With a click of your mouse you can view a report on
the web page or download it to a spreadsheet. E-mail
and fax functions are available on selected reports.
The Financial Reports Web page address is <http://
financial.reports.umn.edu>.

Internet Starting Points
Subject Oriented Internet Resource Guides
The Academic and Distributed Computing Services web page <http://www
.micro.umn.edu> has a section called
Starting Points. That web site is a good
place for beginners and others who
want to access popular Internet resources,
such as Yahoo where resources are categorized by
subject area, or search for information on a topic, for
example by using WebCrawler or Switchboard.
An Education Example
In the Education section you’ll find a guide labeled
Education Standards, Frameworks <http://putwest
.boces.org/standards.html>. This guide was
rated 5 overall; it’s an annotated list of K-12 educational standards and curriculum frameworks documents. This guide points to associations, such as the
Organization of American History, and resources, such
essays about standards and opposition to standards.
■ Mary Kelleher
The Argus Clearinghouse
The Argus Clearinghouse at <http://www.
clearinghouse.net/> is also a good starting point.
The Argus Clearinghouse is a new name for an old
service: the “Clearinghouse for Subject-Oriented
Internet Resource Guides,” an academic venture
begun at the University of Michigan in 1993. In July
1996 the guides got a shorter name and moved to
their own host (clearinghouse.net), so any bookmarks
to old the clearinghouse site are outdated.
All the guides contained in the Argus Clearinghouse
center around one topic and are available via a Web
browser, either as hypertext (HTML) with links or as
plain text. The guides point to Internet information
resources, such as mailing lists and news groups as
well as web, gopher, and FTP sites. You’ll find guides
on topics such as • Boats, Yachts, Sailing, Marine
Industries • Hair Loss and • Utopianism,
Dystopianism, Postmodernisms.
The clearing house team adds extra value to the guides
with their rating system, but not all guides are rated.
Although older guides are available, any guide that
has not been updated in the past twelve months is
kept in a older guides section within its subject
category.
Browse or Search
You can browse through the twelve categories shown
in Table 1 or search for a topic. If you just want to
randomly browse, you can look at the Guide of the
Month. The August pick was the Internet Guide for
China Studies compiled by the Department of Chinese
Studies, Vienna University, Austria: “A thorough, wellannotated guide to Internet sites related to East Asian
studies. Straightforward and easy to navigate.”

The Move to WBOB is Complete
SuperSession Tip
Consolidation Milestone
Issue the Reset Command
An Office of Information Technology
team that included members from
ADCS, BASIS, and NTS successfully
moved computer systems supporting
research, instructional, and departmental
computing, Usenet News, and Gopher Hotel from
the Lauderdale location to the BASIS Data Center at
the West Bank Office Building (WBOB). The move
started Friday evening, August 9. Pete Bartz, the
project leader for the Lauderdale operations move,
reported that all systems were up and functioning by
Saturday evening, August 10.
The completion of the Lauderdale move is a major
milestone for the Office of Information Technology’s
Data Center Consolidation Project. It is the last
major systems move in bringing together the operations formerly known as CCS, SPCS, and AIS in the
OIT/BASIS Data Center. ■ Myron Lowe, BASIS
Technical Services and Computer Operations
There are times while working in the
BASIS mainframe session manager,
SuperSession, that you will receive a
message:
issue the RESET command from the
CL/SuperSession Main Menu
You will receive this message when BASIS changes the
logon bulletin or modifies SuperSession user settings.
Typing RESET at the SuperSession Main Menu command prompt will “reset” your environment so you
will be able to see the changes made. If you do not
issue the RESET command, your environment will
automatically be “reset” the next time you logon on.

run system 7.5, you should upgrade to 8MB before installing RAM doubler. The Connectix FAQ also has tips for
using RAM doubler with Photoshop, with some PowerBooks and with the HP DeskWriter. If you already own
