Spaces, Cases & Faces: Libraries as an Emerging Technologies Hubs
After researching emerging technologies professional positions, it became clear that it is not a widespread position. Evidence was found for ~60 positions across the US. The interesting aspect of this fact is that organizations that have implemented an emerging technologies position typically become champions of the position and expand it into a team/department. Highlighted will be the way emerging technologies teams create value for libraries and their plans to expand that value in the future.

Sorting Scholarship Applications Using Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS)
With the rising costs of higher education and the increase in scholarship applications, an efficient and fair method for ranking students must be investigated. The technique for order preference to ideal solution (TOPSIS) was investigated for two scholarships in the Gallogly College of Engineering at the University of Oklahoma. The results were forwarded to decision makers and investigated. TOPSIS was found to be an effective means for ranking students based on multiple criteria.
