There is change in educational paradigms. The old model was based on classroom lectures, passive absorption, individual work, omniscient teacher, stable content and homogeneity. The new model is based on individual exploration, apprenticeship, team learning, teacher serving as a guide, fast changing content, and diversity in course contents. The technological implications of the new model networked workstations, collaborative tools, and skill development simulations. Flexible and open learning are the manifestation of this shift. It is now possible for the learner to learn at his own speed and convenience. As such, it is proper that we teach about networks as well as use these networks in teaching LIS programmes in South Asia. The main problem in conceiving, delivering and evaluating the contents of various courses at different levels is that not all the departments of library science in South Asia are having equal infrastructure, course material and specialized faculty. No single department is in a position to modernize its curricula without taking note of its delivery and evaluation. At the national level, efforts should be made in South Asian countries to provide adequate infrastructure to the institutions running LIS programmes.

 

For the strength and success of a profession, professional education plays a vital role. In the fast changing scenario it is important to discuss and deliberate on this important subject. Peers in the field of library profession and library education have joined hands together to analyze and examine some of the problems being faced by `LIS Education in South Asia' because of the changing environment with a view to offering feasible solutions. This book is a result of this collaboration.

During the last few decades, technology became a major factor on the library scene. Staying on top of that technology is now more difficult because of its proliferation. There is available a much wider range of choices in applications to the acquisition, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information. Although automation is an evolutionary process, there have been several developments in information technology which may be characterized as revolutionary in terms of their actual or potential impact on the library.

 

This book will serve as a firm and accurate base for the course of UGC new curriculum for library science students (Both B.Lib. Information Science, M.Lib. Information Science, Programmes).

 

Topics covered include basic and application concepts; Information Technology, Impact, Components and so on; History and Development of Computer-Types, Generations and Classification, Computer Hardware, Components, Input, Output and Storage Devices, Computer Software Processing, Software Systems, Programming Language, Algorithm and Flow Charts; DOS, UNIX, MS-Windows, LINUX, Windows NT and so on. Word Processors, Spread Sheets, DBMS Packages-DBMS, MS-Access, Library Automation-House Keeping Activities; Multilingual Library Software Packages-CDS/ISIS, Libsys, SOUL, MINDLIBRARY, Soft link Asia Software; Communication Technology--Components, Devices, Network--LAN, WAN, MAN; Topologies-STAR, BUS, RING; Internet and Basic Tools--History Development, Connecting, Dialup, Search Engine; Intranet, Extranet; Digital Libraries--Origin, Definition, History, Electronic Library; Virtual Library; Digitization; Barcode Technology; Artificial Intelligence and so on.

 

This book is an attempt to describe the objectives and function of different role of information technology. It is hoped that this will provide some value addition to the present and anticipated literature in this field. Thus, the book provides use of information technology in library and information science in information handling on the lines of the syllabus delineated in the UGC new curriculum and shall come handy to teachers and students of library and information science. It can also provide a general basic knowledge to all those who want to know from general to specific information about information technology.

 

Mahender Pratap Singh, obtained his M.Com. from C. C. S. University, Meerut. Further he obtained his master of library and information science (M.Lib. I.Sc.) from department of library and information science, University of Delhi.

International Calendar of Information Science Conferences

 

asis-l-bounces@asis.org; on behalf of; Michel J. Menou [Michel.Menou@wanadoo.fr]    Sun 24/07/2005 4:18 PM

sighfis-l@asis.org; sigifp-l; SIGMETRICS@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU; sigkm-l@asis.org; ASIS-L       [Asis-l] Announcing the International Calendar of InformationScience Conferences

 

** Please excuse duplicate postings **

 

The Special Interest Group on International Information Issues (SIG/III), the European (ASIST/EC) and the New England (NEASIST) chapters of ASIS&T (American Society for Information Science &

Technology) are pleased to announce:

 

The International Calendar of Information Science Conferences (ICISC) http://icisc.neasist.org/

 

This centralized, master calendar of relevant conferences being held around the world serves three primary purposes:

 

- to help information science researchers and practitioners (and their colleagues in related disciplines) to discover which conferences are planned that might fulfill their need to communicate their knowledge and experience and learn from others; and,

 

- to help conference organizers avoid time or topic conflicts, or coordinate with other groups, leading to more interaction and coherence among professional groups; and,

 

- to contribute to facilitating interaction among like-minded

professionals working on information problems around the globe.  

 

This calendar is meant as a cooperative venture. Any organization or conference organizer is cordially invited to submit relevant conferences, either confirmed or planned, to the ICISC Calendar.

Detailed instructions for registering a conference directly, through a submission form, or by Email can be found on the Web site. The site is moderated and the sponsoring organizations reserve the right to discard entries that would not be deemed appropriate.

 

The calendar is in English at the moment. We hope that more languages and/or mirror sites could be added in the future. Announcements can be passed in any language that can be presented in Latin characters, provided an English translation of at least the conference place and title is also included.

 

In addition to the dynamic and searchable calendar available for viewing in both block and list style, there is a "Quick Calendar" listing all the events on a static HTML web page useful for printing, or for those with slower internet connections. ICISC further offers the option to subscribe to an RSS feed to keep up to date on the latest additions.

 

The web site further includes lists of electronic fora, organizations, networks and rotating conferences in Information science. Suggestions of relevant entries will be most welcome.

 

We hope that you will find this calendar useful from an organizational and/or individual stand point. We encourage you to contribute to the calendar and offer your suggestions.  Be sure to subscribe to the RSS/XML feed to stay up to date on new additions to the calendar.

 

Your colleagues from,

SIG/III (http://www.asis.org/SIG/SIGIII/) ASIST/EC (http://www.asis.org/Chapters/europe/About.htm)
