    Description: Diffusion coefficients of alloying elements in Mg are critical for the development of new Mg alloys for lightweight applications. Here we present the data set of the temperature-dependent dilute tracer diffusion coefficients for 47 substitutional alloying elements in hexagonal closed packed (hcp) Mg calculated from first-principles calculations based on density functional theory (DFT) by combining transition state theory and an 8-frequency model. Benchmark for the DFT calculations and systematic comparison with experimental diffusion data are also presented. The data set refers to “Diffusion coefficients of alloying elements in dilute Mg alloys: A comprehensive first-principles study” by Zhou et al. [1].

    Description: American graphic novels are increasingly recognized as high quality literature and an interesting genre for academic study. Graphic novels of Japan, called manga, have established a strong foothold in American culture. This preliminary survey of 44 United States university libraries demonstrates that Japanese manga in translation are consistently collected at a lower rate than American graphic novels. This article was published in the JOURNAL OF ACADEMIC LIBRARIANSHIP (2010), 36:6, 511-517. [Elsevier]

    Description: This article examines the methodology undertaken while investigating whether the existing collections in Asian American Studies at The Pennsylvania State University Libraries could support a new academic program. Presently active academic subareas in the field of Asian American Studies were determined. Then existing collections of thirteen “benchmark” universities were examined according to these subareas and compared to the holdings of Pennsylvania State University Libraries. This method can not only evaluate the fitness of existing collections to new academic demands but also serve as a tool for collection development by identifying present and future areas of academic study. This article was published in LIBRARY COLLECTIONS, ACQUISITIONS & TECHNICAL SERVICES (2012), 36:1-7 [Elsevier]
