This presentation discusses The Portal to Texas History and illustrates what types of items are in the collection and the resources available to museums, educators, and partners. It also discusses the future goals of The Portal to Texas History.
This book chapter discusses educating communities. and preserving tomorrow's treasures today. Librarians, curators, archivists, and volunteers work hard to conserve and preserve materials as they are added to their collections, insuring that the materials can be safely used. However, not all genealogical and historical information is held in cultural institutions; unknown numbers of valuable information sources reside with individuals and in residences. By educating the community today on how to protect the treasures in their care, we have the potential to minimize the repairs needed for these items in the future.
This presentation provides an overview of the End of Term (EOT) Web Archive. The EOT Web Archive program is a multi-institution effort that aims to comprehensively capture and save U.S. Government websites at the end of presidential administrations. Beginning in 2008, the EOT has thus far preserved websites from administration changes in 2008 and 2012. The collaborative program is currently preparing for the 2016 electoral season.

This article relates to the research article entitled "Whole length myosin binding protein C stabilized myosin subfragment-2 (s2) flexibility as measured by gravitational force spectroscopy" (Singh et al., 2018) . The data exhibited the purified skeletal myosin binding protein (MyBPC) from rabbit back muscle was of slow skeletal type confirmed by chromatography and in unphosphorylated state based on its isoelectric point (pI) by chromatofocussing.

This article's aim was to compare the efficiency of the Picture Interpretation Test 360° (PIT 360°) with traditional measures on executive dysfunction in Persons with Multiple Sclerosis (PwMS) and Healthy Controls (HC). Overall, the PIT 360° was concluded to be a quick, sensitive, and ecological tool that captures real-world executive dysfunction in PwMS. This engaging measure is sensitive for the detection of executive deficits since the early phases of the disease.

Paper examines the impacts of variations in the mean annual lake bottom temperature (MALBT) on talik development and permafrost degradation beneath expanding thermokarst lakes in the Beiluhe Basin on the Qinghai–Tibetan Plateau.
This article includes a cross-sectional study examining the Automated Self-Administered 24-H (ASA24) Dietary Assessment Tool in persons with Multiple Sclerosis. This study establishes the feasibility and acceptability of ASA24 in persons with MS and provides a foundation regarding the need for further validation research examining appropriate outcomes for supporting dietary interventions

This paper explores the role of Historically Black College and University (HBCU) archives in preserving the history and cultural heritage of these institutions and investigates the factors that contribute to the disparities observed in the availability of digital collections and the staffing of archivists across HBCUs in the United States. Data was collected from 102 HBCU websites and the National Center for Education Statistics, and analyzed using descriptive statistics, chi-square tests, and ordinary linear regression. The findings revealed notable disparities in the staffing of archivists and the presence of digital archive collections, with geography, enrollment, and endowment emerging as potentially significant factors. The study highlights the importance of understanding key factors in the availability of digital archive collections and the staffing of archivists at HBCUs.
