JOURNAL OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY & POLITICS

New journal

JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU  Journal of Information Technology and Politics

JESSE participants may be interested in this new journal, edited by a colleague here at the SIS, University of Pittsburgh.

The Editor is seeking new members of the review panel and editorial board.

Peace,

Ellen Detlefsen

Associate Professor, School of Information Sciences Core Faculty, Department of Biomedical Informatics, School of Medicine Chief, Information Dissemination Unit, NIMH ACISR/Late Life Mood Disorders, School of Medicine University of Pittsburgh

--forwarded message re the Journal of Information Technology & Politics--

I am writing to you to announce the launch of the Journal of Information Technology & Politics, (www.jitp.net) and to invite the members of the JESSE community interested in this subfield to join our reviewer and editorial board database by completing a brief web survey at:

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=90162489434

If anyone has already completed a variant of this survey (under the auspices of seeking feedback on what was then the Journal of

E-Government) there is no reason to complete the survey again. We have ~250 completed surveys and a very large and growing database of potential reviewers. There is considerable excitement amongst this group about the direction of this journal.

We plan to use a tailored database to make sure JITP reviewers get only the articles they really want to review and at a rate that is set by each reviewer. We are also building a sizable full editorial board out of this reviewer database. If people are interested in the governance of JITP, they should take 5 minutes visit the survey, or else e-mail me directly to tell me about your ideas and interests relating to JITP.

Thanks,

Dr. Stuart Shulman

Editor, JITP

KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT FOR DEVELOPMENT JOURNAL

VOL.2, ISSUE 3 – Call for guest editors

asis-l-bounces@asis.org; on behalf of; Michel J. Menou [Michel.Menou@wanadoo.fr] Tue 18/07/2006 8:54 PM

asis-l@asis.org; sigkm-l@asis.org; sigiii-l; eurchap       

[Asis-l] [Fwd: [km4dev-l] Call for Guest editors for December 2006 issue of the 'KM4D  Journal' (Vol.2, issue 3)]

Dear Colleagues

The 6th issue of the 'Knowledge Management for Development Journal' (Vol.2, Issue 3) is due in December and it will be my turn to work with a group of Guest Editors as chief editor. In our original planning, we thought that the December issue should concentrate on the relationship between information management and knowledge management, considering how the theoretical relationship is illustrated by practical examples. Since then, however, I'm wondering if it might be more interesting to look at 'knowledge divides' more generally - North/South, grassroots/practitioner/researcher/policymaker, language, and even IM/KM - with practical examples of how these divides are being crossed. This possible shift in emphasis is in response to the considerable enthusiasm which has been met by Julie's article 'Bridging the gap between research and practice'  from last December's issue of the journal (see:

http://www.km4dev.org/journal/index.php/km4dj/article/view/39)

If either the IM/KM or the 'knowledge divides' approach appeals to you, and you would be interested in being a Guest Editor on this forthcoming issue - or would even like to discuss the subject coverage only, please would you send an e-mail noting your interest to km4dj-editors@dgroups.org with the subject line: 6th issue.

I'm going to be absent from the office until 12 August but I'll get back to you after then. In the meantime, Mike Powell has kindly agreed to keep a watching brief on this until I get back. I would assume that we will be working on a 'Call for papers' to be issued by the end of August/first week September.

If you would like to register a burning interest in another theme that could be the subject of a future issue of the journal, please don't hesitate to let us know, also via the above Dgroup.

Hoping to hear from some of you!

Best wishes

Sarah Cummings

Knowledge Organization (KO)

Devoted to Concept Theory, Classification, Indexing and Knowledge Representation

Official Quarterly Journal of the International Society for Knowledge Organization (ISKO)

Published by ERGON-Verlag, Würzburg, Germany http://www.ergon-verlag.de/

Knowledge Organization is an international refereed quarterly journal that publishes scholarly papers and reports related to all aspects of knowledge organization.

Scope of KO: In each issue, experts from many countries comment on questions of the adequate structuring and construction of ordering systems and on the problems of their use in providing access to the information contents of new literature, of data collections and survey, of tabular works and of other objects of scientific interest. Contributions: (1) clarify theoretical foundations (general ordering theory, philosophical foundations of knowledge and its artifacts, theoretical bases of classification, data analysis and reduction); (2) describe practical operations associated with indexing and classification, as well as applications of classification systems and thesauri, manual and machine indexing; (3) trace the history of knowledge organization; (4) discuss questions of education and training in classification; and (5) problems of terminology in general and with respect to special fields.

Aims of KO: Knowledge Organization is a forum for all those interested in the organization of knowledge on a universal or a domain-specific scale, using concept-analytical or concept-synthetical approaches, as well as quantitative and qualitative methodologies. Knowledge Organization also addresses the intellectual and automatic compilation and use of classification systems and thesauri in all fields of knowledge, with special attention being given to the problems of terminology.

The contents of this journal are indexed and abstracted in Referativnyi Zhurnal Informatika and in the following online databases: Information Science Abstracts, INSPEC, Library and Information Science Abstracts (LISA), Library Literature, PASCAL, Social Science Citation Index, Sociological Abstracts and Web of Science.

Fri 28/04/2006 11:36 PM        JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU          call for papers - internet fraud,  deception, malware, and library information literacy

Internet fraud, which may manifest itself in phishing, pharming, spoofing, and spamming, continues to thrive despite the refinement of electronic mail filters.

Case studies, surveys, and technical articles on any aspect of this issue are being sought for an upcoming issue of Library and Archival Security.

Library & Archival Security is the only journal that stresses legal and organizational issues and incidents in libraries, archives, and other information centers. Peer-reviewed and refereed, the journal is devoted to providing you with information on all aspects of security in libraries, archives, and other information centers, including physical security; data and communications security; relevant legislation; disaster preparedness and recovery; and studies of related social, legal, and ethical issues.

Authors wishing to contribute to this peer-reviewed journal are invited to contact the Editor, Christopher Brown-Syed (clb24@buffalo.edu), and to consult the instructions for authors at

LIBRARY LINK

February/March 2006

Emerald [librarylink@emeraldinsight.com]                     Tue 4/04/2006 4:18 PM                       Library Link Newsletter - February/March 2006

Dear readers,

Welcome to this double spring issue of Knowledge & Networks, the Emerald LibraryLink newsletter.

It contains two helpings of your favourite features and a few surprises.

Mike McGrath, Editor of “Interlending & Document Supply,” will give a briefing session at the UKSG conference in Warwick, UK, this week. Prior this appearance he talked to LibraryLink about the future of Document Supply and other related issues.

Rachel Singer Gordon tells how to relax writing muscles once your publishing ambition has been fulfilled to avoid succumbing to your own success. She also invites us to share the point of view of other experts on how to Publish, and not Perish!

Our travels around the Web in search of great library cyberspace take us to two very smart and intelligent blogs.

The Newsletter Fillers bring yet more welcome print for the newsletters you edit. One Newsletter Filler will enlighten your patrons about library consortia and the other will introduce them to the growing popularity of taxonomy.

On The Marketing Shelf you will find the advice of Lisa Ennis on how to best employ your time with communication, and vice versa.

We introduce the “Welcome to Emerald” LIS School Program to support LIS education and the future of the library profession.

And we highlight some important events in the LIS sphere…

Happy reading.

1. Guru Interview: Mike McGrath, Editor of “Interlending & Document Supply.”

Mike McGrath has been the editor of “Interlending & Document Supply” for four years, following a career at the British Library as Head of UK Marketing in Boston Spa. Along with the editorial responsibility of ILDS, Mike undertook to perpetuate the literature review tradition of the journal, a long standing popular feature generally encompassing over 140 resources published in various forms, from academic journals to the Internet.

Before giving a presentation at the UKSG conference in Warwick, 3-5 April 05, he answers a few questions for LibraryLink.

2. Publish, don’t Perish! Getting Back on the Horse: On Breaks and Breathing

Success also has side effects. Your professional writing can wear you out, take up every minute of your personal time and eventually drain all your precious inspiration. Like after any effort, a cool down period and stretching exercises are necessary:

Read the article here:

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/info/librarians/How_to_get_Published/perish_issue18.jsp

Publish, don’t Perish! Well, Don’t Just Take My Word For It…

Einstein demonstrated that everything is relative and varies according to the point of view. Other authors share writing techniques and give tips designed to steer professionals on the road to publishing.  Rachel points out a few selected resources that add their points of view to the same publishing issues she has been developing over the past eighteen months in Publish, don’t Perish!

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/info/librarians/How_to_get_Published/perish_issue19.jsp

You also want to get hold of Rachel’s new book “The NextGen Librarian’s Survival Guide.” It is still hot from the press, and already acclaimed!

The NextGen Librarian’s Survival Guide, ISBN: 1-57387-256-3, published by Information Today, Inc.

3. Newsletter Fillers

Newsletter Fillers is a free service providing articles designed especially for reprint within your library newsletter. Each Newsletter Filler article aims to be interesting, informative and to raise awareness about library and information science issues. It is a great way to add content and substance to your own newsletters.

You can reproduce any of the articles in the Newsletter Fillers section as long as you include the citation statement at the end.

*February Newsletter Filler: Libraries Cooperate to Bring You the World

This Newsletter Filler explains how and why information is shared and organised between libraries through consortia. It offers a full round up of all the library cooperative groups around the globe. Essential reading for students, faculty and academics who use the library facilities.

You can copy and paste this Newsletter Filler from here:

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/info/librarians/filler_article06.jsp

* March Newsletter Filler: Who’s a Taxonomist?

Taxonomy is growing in popularity. You may belong to the category of those who know what taxonomy means but your library patrons may not. This month’s Newsletter Filler defines taxonomy, untangles some lingering confusion around the term and describes further this thriving career opportunity.

You can copy and paste this Newsletter Filler from here:

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/info/librarians/filler_article07.jsp

Please tell us if you like the Newsletter Fillers and reprint them in your own newsletters. We also welcome new subject ideas for future Newsletter Fillers by email: apelle@emeraldinsight.com

4. The Marketing Shelf: The Art of Communication: Fishing with a Big Net

Lisa Ennis is musing by the communication pond and wonders which far-reaching communication tool is best suited to attract users to the sandy shores of library services.

Read this column here:

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/info/librarians/Marketing_your_library/markshelf_issue04.jsp

*The Marketing Shelf: Timing Really is Everything! Well, almost…

Whereas time is precious, timing is never too precocious. Scheduling should be an integral part of your marketing plan, but as Lisa Ennis reveals, it can rely on the external schedules of others too. Make sure the clock is ticking… all the right boxes.

5. Around the Web in 80 blogs:

* Around the Web in 80 blogs: Smart Economy

URL: http://smarteconomy.typepad.com/  

Ok, this is not, strictly speaking, a library blog but it may be exceedingly useful to all librarians and especially to special librarians dealing with queries on the most advanced technological subjects. This blog may appear like highly geeky ground but it is equally fascinating in the way it links emerging smart technologies with existing political, sociological and economical conditions.

Lateral thinking is one way of looking at it. Full-on technological fest is another.

* Around the Web in 80 blogs: Blogwithoutalibrary.net

URL: http://www.blogwithoutalibrary.net/  

This is a very savvy resource with extremely useful postings. All the crucial debates at the heart of library and information science issues are discussed here, always with an informed voice. There is a seemingly predominant amount of blog entries dealing with how to integrate social media, i.e. wikis, blogs, etc., into the running of libraries and use these technologies to the best of their potential.

A professional enhancing read.

6. “Welcome to Emerald” LIS School Program

Emerald is very pleased to announce the launch of its “Welcome to Emerald”

LIS School Program in support of LIS education. The program currently offers library and information science students and faculty access to Emerald Fulltext database in the context of their collection development course. We are currently registering participants in the United States to take part in the programme during the Fall 2006 and the Spring 2007 semesters.

If your institution runs an ALA-accredited LIS program that holds a collection development course, visit this page for more details about the program and how to register:

7. Special Highlight: ILI, Internet Librarian International 2006, 16-17 October, Clopthorne Tara Hotel, London.

Jim Ashling wrote for Information Today in his review of last year’s Internet Librarian International event:

“As always, the conference was true to its name with presentations given by contributors from around the world, but even more notably, it was attended by participants from thirty-three different countries.

Apart from the two keynotes, attendees had to choose between two, sometimes three, concurrent sessions spanning: blogs, wikis and collaboration tools; e-learning and training; information organisation and discovery; best practices; digital libraries; web skills; and innovative information environments.

It is exciting to watch a technology develop and adapt virtually in front of your eyes. Blogs and wikis have existed for such a short time, yet when surveyed the audience revealed that more than half of them were providing blogs for their communities. Furthermore, live blogging from conference sessions, rapidly followed by conference podcasting is rapidly taking off.

It’s still early days of course as many blog entries from meetings look more like the sort of roughly scribbled notes that I take and find hard to understand myself five days later, let alone be intelligible to a remote audience. However, the blog aficionados are enthusiastic and look unstoppable so don’t expect them to go away.”

It will be very interesting indeed to see how these social technologies have evolved at the next event on 16-17 October 2006 at the Copthorne Tara Hotel in London.

Library Link Newsletter - April 2006

Dear readers,

Welcome to this new issue of Knowledge & Networks, the Emerald LibraryLink newsletter.

This month, Rachel Singer Gordon impresses again. She already handles a multitude of professional activities successfully and she is now blogging.

Unsurprisingly, it is quite a buzz already…

Not forsaking her other tasks, Rachel’s new Publish, Don’t Perish! column searches Open Access Archives.

Jill Emery, Head Librarian at the University of Texas Libraries talks to LibraryLink about managing electronic resources.

We learn some lessons from the Blogging4Business Conference in London.

On the marketing shelf, Lisa Ennis attempts to put a marketing team together.

We introduce a new “byte-size” section containing tips to increase database usage.

And finally, you will find a flourish of essential editorial highlights.

Happy reading.

1. Around the Web in 80 blogs: The Liminal Librarian

URL: http://www.lisjobs.com/liminal/ 

Rachel Singer Gordon started this blog to reflect on her current status as an “in between” stages librarian. The Liminal Librarian is one of the most addictively insightful and thought provoking library blogs to have cropped up recently. I am not just saying this because Rachel writes our very own Publish, don’t Perish! column but because I truly believe it. The attention the Liminal Librarian is getting, only a few weeks after it started, confirms it. The cream of the crop of library bloggers have already bookmarked the Liminal Librarian and posted a flurry of pertinent comments.

I would strongly suggest you do the same!

2. Blog your own business!

There is no denying it, blogging is starting to have a significant impact on business. This was the general consensus among the panel of guest speakers at the Blogging4Business conference in London last month. For the 180, or so, delegates the event was a field day. Aspiring bloggers mingled with experienced bloggers or other curious neophytes willing to check what the blogging cyberfuss is all about.

Forget about control. Monitoring, networking and, above all, engaging are the new rules. Sooner or later, blogging should be part of the culture of any organisation. Including yours.

3. Publish, Don’t Perish! Open Access Archives

Publishing is not always synonymous with books and journals. This month, Rachel Singer Gordon offers a comprehensive guide to Open Access repositories to help you choose where to publish your work, if OA is the road for you…

4. Guru Interview: Jill Emery, Head Librarian

Jill Emery is about to become Head Librarian, Serials and Electronic Resources at the University of Texas Libraries at Austin. Her new role follows from several years as Director for the Electronic Resources Programs at the University of Houston Libraries. Earlier this month, I met Jill Emery at the UKSG conference in Warwick, UK, where she was presenting her Briefing Session: Ghosts in the machine: the resource management tools. She has a lot to say about librarianship and the challenges of dealing with electronic resources. She shares some of her thoughts with LibraryLink...

5. The Marketing Shelf: Come One, Come All! Recruiting and Retaining a Marketing Team

How to build relationships that are meaningful to the marketing of your library is the object of this month’s column by Lisa Ennis.

But once you have established connections you also need to work on making them last…
