What influence did the strategic thinkers of the day have on the SP War? What was the state of readiness of the combatants? What was the effect of disparate technologies that were used in the SP War? What was the nature of the ground campaign? What effect did naval forces have on the strategic aspects of the war? To what extent did the American ground and naval forces cooperate operationally; and why was it necessary for them to do so? How were IVjoint operations% coordinated? What was the command structure?

Description : Cataloging standards practiced within the traditional library, archive and museum environments are not interoperable for the retrieval of objects within the shared online environment. Within today’s information environments, library, archive and museum professionals are becoming aware that all information objects can be linked together. In this way, information professionals have the opportunity to collaborate and share data together with the shard online cataloging environment, the end result being improved retrieval effectiveness. But the adaptation has been slow: Libraries, archives and museums are still operating within their own community-specific cataloging practices. This book provides a historical perspective of the evolution of linking devices within the library, archive, and museums environments, and captures current cataloging practices in these fields. It offers suggestions for moving beyond community-specific cataloging principles and thus has the potential of becoming a springboard for further conversation and the sharing of ideas.
