Documenting an Environmental Disaster: The River Valley Collection at Marion Public Library

Ian Fairclough
Marion Public Library (located in Marion, Ohio, 45 miles north of Columbus) serves as repository for a collection of documents produced in response to local concern about the incidence of leukemia and other ailments among the population.

The Impact of Retail Payment Innovations on Cash Usage

Ben S. C. Fung, Kim Huynh & Leonard Sabetti
Many predict that innovations in retail payment may render cash obsolete. We investigate this possibility in the context of recent payment innovations such as contactless-credit and stored-value cards.
