Environmental Monitoring of Libraries with MonTreAL
Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries, Thessaloniki, Greece

View Abstract
An ever-increasing amount of devices connected over the Internet pave the road towards the realization of the 'Internet of Things' (IoT) idea. With IoT, endangered infrastructures can easily be enriched with low-cost, energy-efficient monitoring solutions, thus alerting is possible before severe damage occurs. We developed a library wide humidity and temperature monitoring framework MonTreAL, which runs on commodity single board computers. In addition, our primary objectives are to enable flexible data collection among a computing cluster by migrating virtualization approaches of data centers to IoT infrastructures. We evaluate our prototype of the system MonTreAL at the University Library of Bamberg by collecting temperature and humidity data.

Why IS after all? An Explorative Analysis of Professionals' Letters of Study Motivation
Proceedings of the 47th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS), Big Island (HI)

View Abstract
While the selection of majors in Information Systems (IS) is widely discussed, the context of IS in further education lacks attention. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to analyze the motivational factors of individuals who intent to study IS, although they have already graduated in another degree program. Based on an explorative analysis of 84 letters of motivation of applicants applying for a further education degree program in IS, we identify determinants of an individual's motivation to study IS after all. Based on that, we conclude that extrinsic motivations such as expected career enhancement are more important than in other contexts such as undergraduate study paths.
