Sensibiliser à l'art un large public en offrant des collections pertinentes constitue une mission importante des bibliothèques publiques. Offrir aux chercheurs, conservateurs, professionnels et amateurs des collections adéquates est la raison d'être des bibliothèques spécialisées en art. Ce livre s'adresse tant aux bibliothèques généralistes qu'aux bibliothèques spécialisées. Les auteurs de cet ouvrage présentent d'abord la discipline de l'histoire de l'art, en retracent les principales mutations, restituent quelques itinéraires croisés entre historiens d'art et bibliothécaires. Les évolutions des bibliothèques d'art en France au cours des dernières années sont décrites et, en écho, sont évoquées les grandes bibliothèques d'art étrangères. Les principaux éditeurs et les principales collections sont présentés, la situation de l'édition d'art analysée. Puis sont abordées les collections d'art en bibliothèque. Comment les connaître, les traiter, les offrir ? Certains documents spécifiques font l'objet d'une présentation détaillée : les catalogues d'expositions, les catalogues de musées, les catalogues de ventes, les archives et manuscrits, les livres d'artistes, les livres d'art pour les enfants, les images animées. Les modalités de la gestion des collections d'art sont explicitées : repérage, acquisition, cadre de classement, catalogage, diffusion. Un accent particulier est mis sur l'art contemporain, ainsi que les artothèques. Celles-ci préparent des dossiers d'artistes, des dossiers d'œuvres. Enfin, l'importance du réseau documentaire des bibliothèques d'art, outil principal d'une politique de coopération, est soulignée.

Twelve Years a Slave
Describes the life in slavery of Solomon Northup from Saratoga, N.Y., born a free Black man.
Twelve Years a Slave
Solomon Northup was a free man, the son of an emancipated Negro Slave. Until the spring of 1841 he lived a simple, uneventful life with his wife and three children in Upstate New York. Then, suddenly, he fell victim to a series of bizarre events that make this one of the most amazing autobiographies ever written. Northup accepted an offer from two strangers in Saratoga, New York, to catch up with their traveling circus and play in its band. But when the chase ended, Northup had been drugged, beaten, and sold to a slave trader in Washington, D.C. Subsequently, he was shipped to New Orleans, where he was purchased by a planter in the Red River region of Louisiana. For the next twelve years Northup lived as a chattel slave under several masters. He might well have died a slave, except for another set of bizarre circumstances which enabled him to get word to his family and finally regain his freedom. These elements alone -- the kidnapping, enslavement, and rescue -- are sufficient for a sensational story. But Northup provides more. He was a shrewd observer of people and events. His memory was remarkable. He described cultivation of cotton and sugar in the Deep South. He detailed the daily routine and general life of the Negro slave. Indeed, he vividly portrayed the world of slavery -- from the underside. Originally published in 1853, Northup's autobiography is regarded as one of the best accounts of American Negro slavery ever written by a slave. It is reprinted in full here for the first time, as the initial volume in The Library of Southern Civilization. Northup's account has been carefully checked by the editors and has been found to be remarkably accurate. To his own narrative of a long and tragic adventure, Professors Eakin and Logsdon have added significant new details about Northup and the plantation country where he spent most of his time as a slave. Heretofore unknown information about the capture and trial of Northup's kidnappers has been included, adding still another fascinating episode to an already astounding story.
Sermon on the Fall of Rome
This sweeping generational novel, which spans the 20th century, begins with an old man considering a photograph of his long-dead siblings and mother. His bitterness about his family, with its absent father and far older brothers and sisters, is painful to him still. Yet this familial bitterness pales when compared with his profound irritation at the recent disappearance of the highly skilled barmistress Hayet from his local bar. She was, after all, a woman who knew how to make a fine home away from home for her patrons--even for lonely ones like Marcel. A succession of would-be barmen and hostesses descends on the Corsican bar in the hopes of taking Hayet's place, with disastrous and often hilarious results. But then Marcel's illegitimate grandson Matthieu and his streetwise best friend Libero return from the Parisian university where they had been studying philosophy and decide to have a go at running the bar themselves. Initially the lifelong friends are a great success, but as reality increasingly intrudes on their idyll, they begin to see before their very eyes that St. Augustine's observation that all empires must inevitably crumble applies as much to village bars as it did to the ancient Romans.
The Powerful Placebo
A scholarly examination of the placebo effect. The authors survey the use of placebos from antiquity to modern times; examine the development, use and validity of the double-blind, controlled clinical trial; and present their own study of the placebo effect in more than 1000 patients.
Mastering C Multithreading
A comprehensive guide to developing effective multithreading applications in C++About This Book* Delve into the fundamentals of multithreading and concurrency and find out how to implement them* Explore atomic operations to optimize code performance* Apply concurrency to both distributed computing and GPGPU processingWho This Book Is ForThis book is for intermediate C++ developers who wish to extend their knowledge of multithreading and concurrent processing. You should have basic experience with multithreading and be comfortable using C++ development toolchains on the command line.What you will learn* Deep dive into the details of the how various operating systems currently implement multithreading* Choose the best multithreading APIs when designing a new application* Explore the use of mutexes, spin-locks, and other synchronization concepts and see how to safely pass data between threads* Understand the level of API support provided by various C++ toolchains* Resolve common issues in multithreaded code and recognize common pitfalls using tools such as Memcheck, CacheGrind, DRD, Helgrind, and more* Discover the nature of atomic operations and understand how they can be useful in optimizing code* Implement a multithreaded application in a distributed computing environment* Design a C++-based GPGPU application that employs multithreadingIn DetailMultithreaded applications execute multiple threads in a single processor environment, allowing developers achieve concurrency. This book will teach you the finer points of multithreading and concurrency concepts and how to apply them efficiently in C++.Divided into three modules, we start with a brief introduction to the fundamentals of multithreading and concurrency concepts. We then take an in-depth look at how these concepts work at the hardware-level as well as how both operating systems and frameworks use these low-level functions.In the next module, you will learn about the native multithreading and concurrency support available in C++ since the 2011 revision, synchronization and communication between threads, debugging concurrent C++ applications, and the best programming practices in C++.In the final module, you will learn about atomic operations before moving on to apply concurrency to distributed and GPGPU-based processing. The comprehensive coverage of essential multithreading concepts means you will be able to efficiently apply multithreading concepts while coding in C++.
