BestofBiz also benefits from illustrious partnerships with the editorial expertise of A&C Black and the marketing power of Emerald Group Publishing.

Library Quarterly

           

Expanded reviews section

 

Open Lib/Info Sci Education Forum [JESSE@listserv.utk.edu]; on behalf of; Linda Most [lrm04c@GARNET.ACNS.FSU.EDU]                       Wed 7/02/2007 10:38 PM

JESSE@listserv.utk.edu                       Library Quarterly announces expanded reviews section

 

The Library Quarterly is pleased to announce an expanded reviews section.  While continuing to review print monographs and reference books, the new reviews section will also include coverage of websites, databases, and exhibits.  The broadened scope of the reviews section requires more reviewers who have expertise in relevant areas.  To enable this expansion of the Reviews Section, The Library Quarterly is extremely pleased to welcome the Association of College and Research Libraries Library & Information Science Collections Discussion Group as full partners.  The Group will assume responsibility for:  ? 

Identifying items in all five media for possible review; ?  Soliciting reviewers from faculty, peers, and doctoral students within their LIS programs and across their campuses; and ?  Communicating with LQ editorial offices to insure the smooth transition of edited reviewing copy for subsequent publication in LQ.  Sue Searing, head of the Library and Information Science Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and ACRL LIS Collections Discussion Group Chair, will coordinate the effort with ACRL LISCDG librarians.  Linda Most, doctoral student at Florida State University ?s College of Information , will serve as Staff Coordinator of the Reviews Section. LQ readers are encouraged to suggest new review opportunities to the ACRL LISCDG librarians, LQ editors, or the LQ Staff Coordinator for consideration. 

Please feel free to e-mail suggestions and questions directly to Linda Most at lrm04c@fsu.edu.  Additional information on how to participate in the reviews process can be found on the LQ website, http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/LQ/home.html.  We hope all involved in the reviews process -- readers, committee members, staff members, and reviewers -- will be alert to potential items for review and will volunteer to write reviews as well.

Closing Digital Divides: The United States ' Policies

    SONGPHAN CHOEMPRAYONG

 

    Abstract. Since the emergence of information technology, the gap between information 'haves' and 'have-nots' has been broadening: the information rich become richer, while the information poor are poorer. This situation contributes to various issues related to individuals and society. Interestingly enough, although the United States is one of the leading countries in the information and communication technology (ICT) field, according to many studies, the digital divide still exists in many layers and from different perspectives. This paper critically discusses how the US anticipates these issues as well as how national information policy is emerging to close the digital divide.

 

    Serving Culturally Diverse Communities in South African Public Libraries

    A. RODRIGUES

 

    Abstract. This article presents an overview of the multicultural nature of South Africa including the meaning of multiculturalism and multicultural public libraries in the South African environment. An empirical survey was conducted to determine the status quo of the collections and services being offered by South African public libraries to culturally diverse communities, and to determine if these are representative of South Africa 's culturally diverse communities. The findings suggest that public libraries in South Africa often do not recognise the diverse nature of the communities they serve. Causes for the current situation are identified. Finally, suggestions for the development of multicultural library services and collections are also given. The results show the importance of training in cultural diversity issues for libraries.

 

    Multiple Cultures, Multiple Intelligences: Applying Cognitive Theory to Usability of Digital Libraries

    CAROL SMITH

 

    Abstract. Digital libraries are increasingly serving a worldwide audience. Persons of different cultural backgrounds can hold diverse perceptions of what constitutes an effective, efficient and satisfying information-seeking experience, and digital library design therefore grows more complex when its user population traverses cultural boundaries. This paper reviews the state of research on cross-cultural digital library usability and identifies reasons for lack of progress in the field. An improved framework is proposed to support the discussion and evaluation of subjective cultural factors in a deeper, more systematic fashion. The cognitive theory of Howard Gardner, multiple intelligences theory, is explored as one potential framework for exploring cross-cultural digital library usability. Each component of Gardner 's theory is introduced, placed in a cultural context, and then briefly reviewed in terms of its potential application to digital libraries. Alternative frameworks, particularly the cultural dimensions theory of Geert Hofstede, are also introduced. Multiple intelligences theory is found to be helpful for under standing the nature of cultural variables, but not readily translatable into operational design principles for digital libraries. Combining multiple intelligences cognitive theory with cultural theory and global HCI design principles may prove a useful direction for future research.

 

    Scholarly Communication in Scientific Research Practice - A Study of Computer Sciences Faculty

    YI SHEN

 

    Abstract. This study explores computer scientists' modes of communication within scientific inquiry. Situated in a socially constructed research practice, the findings provide a focused view of the collective use of two sets of communication mechanisms - electronic information mechanisms and interpersonal communication channels - within a technology-intensive field. These results are theoretically and pragmatically interesting for both scholarly communication research and library and information professionals. They suggest that to understand scholarly communication, exploring social cues embedded in the real world practice will yield valuable information, while the detailed examination of research practice may provide a resource for the general design of systems to support collaborative scientific work.

 

    Libraries as Scientific, Educational and Cultural Institutions in the Ottoman Empire (XIVth - XVIIth Centuries)

    FATIH RUKANCI AND HAKAN ANAMERIÇ

 

    Abstract. Libraries are social institutions that have existed in Turkish cultural and scientific life for 800 years. During this long period, they took an active part in preserving, reproducing the sources of knowledge, and making them available to different levels of the society. By analysing the functions and characteristics of the libraries in the Ottoman Empire between the XIVth and XVIIth centuries, one can see that without any doubt the book and the library tradition played important roles in the scientific, social and cultural formation of society in a nation nearly 600 years old. The establishment of important libraries, library types, their collections, their employees and their goals and functions show that libraries held an important place in the social, scientific and cultural life of the Ottoman Empire .

ABSTRACTS

 

The Changing Definition of U.S. Libraries TRACY HARTMAN

 

Abstract. American libraries currently face a dramatic shift in how they are perceived, both by the public and by lawmakers. In order to preserve the traditional values observed by librarians, such as patron privacy and access to information, libraries must also preserve the traditional associations that have defined them. The value of libraries has been under mined by the threat of terrorism and the subsequent political pressure to find blame for the terrorist attacks. Librarians must choose whether or not to stick to the traditional library brand, or evolve and market libraries as something else. Without public support, definitions will not change easily. The American public still views the library as a place to read and find books, and this definition must prevail for libraries to retain their relevance in American life. 

 

 

Surfacing Filipino School Children's Images of Librarians through Doodling ALLAN DE GUZMAN, SHEENA MAI B. CUSTODIO and MELISSA ANGELA P. GARCIA

 

Abstract. This qualitative study describes how Filipino grade school pupils in a private, sectarian school in Manila , Philippines identify their views and images of the librarian. Two hundred fifty-eight (258) pupils were asked to fill out a robotfoto box for illustration and to fill in a diagram. As a result of the data gathered and analyzed, two (2) faces of the librarian came into view, based on the children's doodling, the desirable and the undesirable librarian. On the one hand, the desirable librarian represents the enticing, enduring and engaging type. On the other hand, disappointing, depressing and depriving types characterize the librarian who is undesirable. The doodlings indicate that being desirable attracts library clients to visit the library and develops interest in using the library facilities more often. The undesirable qualities make students hesitate in entering the library. This study shows the need for librarians to be concerned with improving their images to develop desired qualities for the benefit of their student clientele. 

 

 

Content Analysis of an LIS Job Database: A Regional Prototype for a Collaborative Model YUNFEI DU, BARBARA STEIN and ROBERT S. MARTIN

 

Abstract. Recently more and more LIS job postings have been distributed to e-mail lists or to recruiters' Web sites. The volatility of electronic media had been creating difficulties for students and LIS educators to estimate overall job trends. An online database at an ALA-accredited library school was designed to allow recruiters to make postings at no cost. In total, 974 library-related advertisements have been posted since 2000. Content analysis reveals most recruiters using this site were from academic libraries (48%) and from public libraries (35%). The most frequently cited qualifications requested were academic background along with communication, professional and technological skills. Results from the database analysis confirm previous findings based on print media. The study suggests that a job database implemented collaboratively among LIS institutions at a national and international level might serve to match recent graduates with employers while at the same time providing empirical data on the skills required in the marketplace. 

 

 

 

Information Environment of Artisans in Botswana NEO MOOKO and L.O. AINA

 

Abstract. A survey of 439 artisans in Botswana was carried out with a view to determining their information needs, information seeking behaviour and sources of information used for meeting their daily needs. The study reveals that about 70% of the respondents were 21-40 years old. The artisans were involved in a variety of vocations, dressmaking, welding and hairdressing being the most prominent. A significant number of the artisans (11.7%) had no formal education. The greatest job-related information needs were in finding sources for raw materials (55.6%), locating government tenders (46.2%) and improving their knowledge (44%). Health (59.9%) and sports (32.1%) were the major general areas of information needs. The artisans sought information mainly through informal conversations (65.8%) and listening to radio (62.6%). The most used information sources were radio (50.3%), colleagues (49%) and newspapers (47.4%). Only 28% of the respondents were computer literate. The paper recommends that the government of Botswana should provide continuing education programmes for the artisans, as this would improve their skills in their vocations, as well as their computer literacy competence. Also, information providers, such as libraries should be involved pro-actively in the provision of information to artisans. They should also equip the artisans with information literacy competence.

 

 

Gender Terminology and Indexing Systems: The Case of Woman's Body, Image and Visualization MARIA J. LOPEZ-HUERTAS and ISABEL DE TORRES RAMIREZ

 

Abstract. Representation and organization of knowledge in inter-disciplinary/transdisciplinary domains have attracted little attention among specialists in Information Science. The lack of attention has affected the management of this kind of information in a negative way because models used for handling interdisciplinary information are based on or inspired by disciplinarity, causing problems in information retrieval. This study is part of broader research aiming to analyze an interdisciplinary domain, in this case Gender Studies, in order to identify its terminological behaviour and its conceptual dynamics for information retrieval. On the basis of a selected lexicon of 333 terms taken from a total of 5,200 terms coming from different sources, this study aims to bring to light the model followed in the representation of concepts related to the health, image and body of women, and their visualization in texts specialized in gender and in information retrieval systems, particularly in Gender thesauri. Secondary objectives are to determine if these sources suffer from gender bias and other types of prejudices of social constructions, here in regards to the body and the health of women, and to identify the research interest that these topics awaken, as reflected in the selected collection of specialized documents. To this end, a quantitative analysis of the selected terminology was done, comparing the results obtained with the selected lexicon from the indexing systems with the lexicon obtained from the primary sources, to detect coinciding terms and possible differences between the two, and so to appraise the documental warrant of the systems. Finally, the terms were grouped into categories in order to reveal the most relevant aspects for representation in the overall context of women's health, the female body and the image of women.

JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU                      Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research

 

Later this month “The Partnership: the Provincial and Territorial Library Associations of Canada” will launch a new open access peer reviewed journal entitled: Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research.  The purpose of the journal is to provide opportunities to the Canadian library community in the realm of scholarly communication.  The journal is an outlet for sharing innovations in the workplace and one of only a few peer reviewed Canadian venues for research in the field of librarianship.  The journal, run solely by volunteers, also provides a chance for librarians, information professionals and library workers to gain experience as editors, reviewers and writing coaches. The philosophy behind the journal is to provide rigorous peer review and high standards in both theoretical and practical aspects of our profession and to provide it freely and immediately to everyone.  No embargoes – this is for librarians who talk the talk and walk the walk!  In addition to the double blind peer review sections entitled Theory and Research and Innovations in Practice, the journal will have a peer reviewed conference section, as well as Canadian news, profiles and views from members of the library community and beyond.  The journal is employing Open Journal Software (OJS) developed at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia and is hosted at the University of Guelph in Ontario.  To learn more about the journal or to view our first issue go to www.partnershipjournal.ca <http://www.partnershipjournal.ca/>  or contact Jennifer Richard, Editor in Chief at Jennifer.richard@acadiau.ca <mailto:Jennifer.richard@acadiau.ca> .  The deadline for submissions to Innovations in Practice, Theory and Research and Conference Spotlight for the Spring 2007 issue is January 31, 2007.  International submissions are welcome.

[Asis-l] Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography Changes   

I have resigned my position as Assistant Dean for Digital Library Planning and Development at the University of Houston Libraries effective 1/31/07.

 

Effective immediately, there are several important changes to the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography (SEPB), Scholarly Electronic Publishing Resources (SEPR), and the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Weblog (SEPW) that users should be aware of:

 

1. These publications have been moved to my domain:

 

http://www.digital-scholarship.com/

 

SEPB

http://www.digital-scholarship.com/sepb/sepb.html

 

SEPR

http://www.digital-scholarship.com/sepb/sepr.htm

 

SEPW

http://www.digital-scholarship.com/sepb/sepw.htm

 

2. While the UH Libraries will archive SEPB versions up to version 64, no new versions will be published on their Website.  If you maintain a catalog record for SEPB, I would ask that you update it with the new address.  Next Monday's SEPW will be published at the new site.

 

3. A transition version of SEPB (65) has been published at the new site.  There are no content changes. This version simply makes a number of HTML coding adjustments needed for the new location. A Google Custom Search Engine replaces the prior search capability.  Once Google starts indexing the new site, search results will be from that site.

 

4. The SEPW mailing list will be discontinued at the end work today. You can continue to get an e-mail version from FeedBurner. I'm sorry for the inconvenience of your having to sign up again; all that is required is your e-mail address.

 

http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/emailverifySubmit?feedId=51756

 

5. The SEPW RSS feed remains the same:

 

http://feeds.feedburner.com/ScholarlyElectronicPublishingWeblogrss

 

6. You can continue to follow my digital publishing activities at my domain and at DigitalKoans:

 

http://www.escholarlypub.com/digitalkoans/

 

Thanks for your patience during this transition.
