We are happy to announce the online release of the findings from our three-year project. All of the researchers who have worked on this project will be writing up individual publications, but this report represents a synthesis of the findings across the 22 different case studies. It has been over three years in the making, and is the result of a truly collaborative joint effort with 28 researchers and research collaborators. I am super proud of my team for doing such a phenomenal job with their individual projects, and for their generosity in sharing their work with this collective effort. It's very rare for ethnographers to collaborate at this scale, and we see this project as testament to the fact that large scale collaboration and joint analysis is possible with qualitative work. Special thanks goes to the MacArthur Foundation who funded this work, and in particular to our program officer, Connie Yowell, who has been together with us in this journey every step of the way.

You’ve seen them in the news and you’ve most likely tried them on at one point or another. Paris Hilton even uses them in her favorite perfume. Pheromones. Otherwise known as nature’s hidden secret, pheromones are powerful chemicals or body secret to attract the opposite sex. In the animal world, attraction works on a chemical level. A gut instinct.

Library Journal - The Practice Prerequisite Sorry, but the article or page you’re looking was not found. In May 2013, Library Journal underwent a major server migration for its archived web content, which happened slightly sooner than originally expected. As a result, much of the content from 2004 to 2012 is currently unavailable to the public. However, this content has not been lost, and our web staff is in the process of converting these past articles for integration into the WordPress-based website you see here, which was launched in 2012.
