EDITOR'S NOTE: 'GreyNet, 1992-2007'

 

This year marks GreyNet’s (Grey Literature Network Service) 15th Anniversary. Looking back in the field of information and communication to 1992 is not only a journey in time to a previous century but also to a period in history without mobile telephone, the World Wide Web, Open Access Repositories, and other such technological advances and exploitations. When we look back to this same period related to grey literature, we see an ad hoc interest in research among a few information professionals in Europe and the United States ; however, change was imminent.

 

In 1993, a year following GreyNet’s foundation, the First International Conference on Grey Literature was to bring together a core group of authors and researchers sowing the seeds for a global research community. The endeavor met with success in that the Ninth International Conference in the GL-Series convenes this December in Antwerp , Belgium .

Over the past 15 years, GreyNet has been able to mobilize over 250 authors and researchers providing them with a variety of platforms for presenting and communicating the results of their work. In 2005, GreyNet undertook editing of The Grey Journal (TGJ) in an effort to provide another channel for the distribution of research results in the field of grey literature; and, the journal is currently in its third volume. As of recent, GreyNet has initiated a proposal for a distance learning course for (post)graduate students. GreyNet hopes that such an innovative endeavor will not only further the awareness and distribution of research results in the field of grey literature but will at the same time provide new avenues for young researchers to enter and specialize in this field. Since The Grey Journal is geared to colleges and schools of Library and Information Studies (LIS), a distance learning course would be consistent with GreyNet’s other networked information services – first conference based, later journal bound, and soon hopefully course certified.

 

This issue of TGJ is titled “Grey Standards in Transition and Use”. In a way it is a tribute to some of the core authors and researchers in the field of grey literature, who have set standards and who worked throughout a period of rapid transition in the field of information to maintain grey literature’s identity and importance. Three of the authors in this current issue are GreyNet Award Recipients: Julia Gelfand (1999), Daniela Luzi (2000), and most recently Marcus A. Banks (2006).

Editor's Note

 

Since TGJ’s launch in 2005, The Grey Journal has been geared to colleges and schools with programs in library and information science (LIS). Starting the coming academic year, ‘grey literature’ will be offered as a special topics course accredited within distance education settings. Towards this goal, a syllabus has been drafted and courseware has been compiled by the Grey Literature Network Service. GreyNet’s course module focuses on upper-level undergraduate and graduate students and contains three component parts - assigned readings, case studies, and research proposals. The assigned readings rely in part on content from The Grey Journal as well as other resources online available via Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts (LISTA-FT), a full text database. Negotiations are currently underway with LIS faculties and the initial results from this pilot enterprise will be presented during a panel session on ‘Grey Literature and Education’ at the Ninth International Conference on Grey Literature held this December in Antwerp, Belgium. In the section, ‘On the New Front’ and overview of the GL9 Conference Program and Timetable is available.

 

In this issue of TGJ titled “Academic and Scholarly Grey”, the first three articles deal with theses and dissertations, belonging to the more traditional types of grey literature. However, even these document types have undergone significant change in format due to the electronic environments in which they are currently produced and archived. The next two articles in this thematic issue address models for archiving and publishing in the academic sector. And, the final article in this issue concludes with a research project that recently received a three-year grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. This research project will no doubt serve as a model in the scientific and technical assessment of grey literature for policy and decision making in sectors of government, academics, as well as, business and industry.

Information Research

 

Volume 12, No 3, April 2007

 

Open Lib/Info Sci Education Forum [JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU]; on behalf of; Tom Wilson [wilsontd@GMAIL.COM]

            Tue 17/04/2007 7:13 PM                     JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU

 

The new issue of Information Research is now accessible from http://InformationR.net/ir/ - here's the Editorial.   For those interested, we still have a need for more copy-editors/proof-readers.  If you are interested, get in touch - see the case study in this issue for another view on the value of involvement in open access publishing.

 

Introduction

My call in the Editorial for the last issue for help with copy-editing the papers for the journal resulted in three volunteers: Eli Guinnee, Lauren Goodchild and Peta Wellstead - located, interestingly, respectively, in the USA , the UK and Australia . They have all tested their skills on one or two papers and have been a big help with this issue. Our long-term copy-editor, RaeAnn Hughes, has also re-surfaced after a long illness and will be back on the team for the next issue.

 

And, while we are on volunteers, thanks to Elena Maceviciute for link-checking and to Pedro Dias and Jose Vicente Rodriguez for the Spanish abstracts.

 

We have also started using Open Journal Systems for all submissions and I hope that this will prevent the occasional item from slipping through the net and failing to be reviewed. It seems to be working well, with only one or two minor problems. If you wish to submit a paper, go to the site <http://nile.lub.lu.se/ojs/index.php/infores/> , register as an Author and then follow the instructions for submitting a paper. The general rules for the preparation of papers are on that site, as well as at the Instructions for Authors <http://informationr.net/ir/author1.html>  location.

 

 

In this issue

 

 

This issue is an almost 50:50 split between papers on activity theory for the thematic issue and those on a variety of topics, which have been submitted in the normal way. The activity theory papers are the subject of another editorial by Guest Editor, Dr. Mark Spasser, so I shall refrain from comment here, except to that Mark for his work on behalf of the journal and also to remark upon one of the items, which is not a paper, but a full-length booka first for the journal.

 

The book, Human activity, by Benny Karpatschof, is not seeing its first publication; it was published originally, in a small edition, by the Dansk Psykologisk Forlag and its publication here was suggested by Prof. Birger Hjørland of the Royal School in Copenhagen and Birger also provides a review of the book in our book review section. The book was provided as a set of .pdf files and, apart from the top page, they remain in that form since conversion to xhtml would be a major task.

 

The 'non-thematic' papers in the issue cover a wide range of topics, as usual: one is in Portuguese (our first in this language) and one is in Spanish. The Portuguese paper deals with stemming algorithms for the Portuguese language and comes from Brazil . The authors conclude that Portuguese has not had a great deal of attention from this point of view and, perhaps, needs further algorithms to be developed. The Spanish paper is on information literacy in public libraries; this is a somewhat under-developed area and the authors argue that information literacy programmes in public libraries should be a priority if life-long learning is to be a reality.

 

The English language papers are equally diverse, covering factors that affect the implementation of information technology in the financial services industry; the dynamics of community network development in the north-east USA , and the information seeking behaviour of Jewish scholars in Israeli universities.

 

The Reviews section includes a review of the second edition of Donald Case's now standard work on Looking for information, now covering more than 1,000 sources on the subject of information seeking behaviour, as well as reviews of a wide range of books of interest to the 'information' field. We also have a review of a piece of Web-ware (again, a first for the journal), TiddlyWiki <http://www.tiddlywiki.com/> , which is a very easy to use tool, requiring the download of only a single Web page, which then serves as the template for your own wiki. I've used this to create a database of the abstracts and editorials <http://informationr.net/ir/inforesearchwiki.html>  in the current volume of the journal as a demo of what can be done.

 

As announced in the last issue, we now have a longish pause before the final issue of Volume 12 in October, with the first issue of Volume 13 coming in March, 2008.

Call for Papers:

JELIS (Journal for Education in Library and Information Science) Special Themed Issue: Ethics and Values in the LIS Curriculum Deadline for Submissions: January 15, 2008

 

As professional schools, LIS programs are charged with critically examining and transmitting the ethics and values of the information professions.  In an age of rapid change, traditional values are subjected to new pressures and are increasingly challenged by emerging technologies and new social orders. How are these challenges being addressed in the LIS curriculum?

 

We seek submissions of approximately 2,500-3,500 words that explore this question.   We are particularly interested in submissions that look toward identifying and addressing intercultural information ethics in their complex technological, economic, political, ideological, legal, philosophical, social, and/or cultural contexts.

 

Complete submission guidelines can be found at

 

http://www.alise.org/publications/jelis_submission_guidelines.html

 

Please direct inquiries and submissions to

Call for papers

 

H-Net Network on Information and Information Institutions [H-INFO@H-NET.MSU.EDU]; on behalf of; Betsy V. Martens [bvmartens@OU.EDU]

Fri 13/07/2007 6:03 AM                      H-INFO@H-NET.MSU.EDU             CFP: Journal of Library Metadata

 

CALL FOR PAPERS: JOURNAL OF LIBRARY METADATA

 

The Journal of Library Metadata (JLM) is a peer-reviewed journal publishing articles on all aspects of metadata applications in libraries. The journal is published quarterly by The Haworth Press, Inc.

 

Previously titled the Journal of Internet Cataloging, after a change in title and editorship, JLM will now focus on metadata, an exciting, timely subject of importance to all libraries.  The journal will publish three categories of articles: standard, peer-reviewed articles; shorter, scholarly, non-peer reviewed articles; and short viewpoint articles.

 

These articles will cover all aspects of metadata applications in libraries, including:

 

Application profiles

Best practices

Controlled vocabularies

Crosswalking of metadata and interoperability Digital libraries and metadata Display of search results Federated repositories Federated searching Folksonomies Individual metadata schemes Institutional repository metadata Metadata content standards Metadata harvesting Ontologies Preservation metadata Resource Description Framework Resource discovery and metadata Search engines and metadata SKOS Stochastic vs. deterministic searching Tagging and tag clouds Topic maps Visual image and moving image metadata

 

Categories of Articles

Please consider writing and submitting an article that falls into one of the following three categories:

 

Peer-reviewed articles (original research, scholarly manuscripts), which should be 10-50 typed pages, double-spaced.

Short, scholarly, non-peer-reviewed articles, often practical in nature (for example, describing a particular library metadata implementation). These should range from 500-2,000 words, with limited citations to other resources.

Upbeat Viewpoint articles giving the author’s opinion on a timely topic related to library metadata applications. These should range from 500-2,000 words and may or may not contain citations. Focus should be on improvements or solutions instead of negative aspects of an existing system, standard, or service.

 

For more information please visit the Journal of Library Metadata web site at: http://jlm.haworthpress.com.

Knowledge Organization is an international refereed quarterly journal that publishes scholarly papers and reports related to all aspects of knowledge organization, which we define broadly as the conceptual ordering of knowledge. Beginning with vol. 34 (2007) KO is now published online.

 

Scope of KO: Our journal is devoted to questions of the adequate structuring and construction of ordering systems, and on the problems of their use in providing access to information contents of literature, data, or 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. Tables of Contents and Abstracts of recent issues may be reviewed at: www.ergon-verlag.de/index.html?information-_library-sciences_knowledge_organization_(journal).htm

Library Philosophy and Practice

 

Special issue

 

isef@listserv.csu.edu.au                        Mon 18/06/2007 10:27 AM                 Library Philosophy and Practice

 

 

We are pleased to announce that the journal Library Philosophy and Practice has published a special issue entitled "Shape Shifters: Librarians Evolve Yet Again in the Age of Google."  The special issue, freely accessible at http://libr.unl.edu:2000/LPP/lppgoogle.htm <http://libr.unl.edu:2000/LPP/lppgoogle.htm>  (and also at its mirror site, at http://www.webpages.uidaho.edu/~mbolin/lppgoogle.htm <http://www.webpages.uidaho.edu/%7Embolin/lppgoogle.htm> ), was guest edited by Mariana Regalado and Jill Cirasella of the Brooklyn College Library.

 

Librarians have a long history of responding professionally and creatively to changes in information dissemination technology. It is no surprise, therefore, that they are adapting themselves and their work to Google, its many modules, and its many competitors. Articles in "Shape Shifters" explore how library services, resources, and job activities are changing in response to these tools and the paradigm shift they herald.

Isef@listserv.csu.edu.au                        [Isef] Special issue of Library Review - Digital Libraries and theSemantic Web

 

Call for papers - Special issue of Library Review

Issue theme: 'Digital libraries and the Semantic Web: context, applications and research'

 

Details: http://cdlr.strath.ac.uk/LibraryReview/

--------------------------------

Submissions are sought for a special issue of Library Review on the topic of 'Digital libraries and the Semantic Web: context, applications and research'.

 

For many digital libraries or cultural institutions, the Semantic Web offers an opportunity to better expose valuable digital resources pertaining to research, culture or history, using common standards and technologies in a collaborative and 'joined up' way. Semantic Web technologies are capable of enhancing digital libraries or repositories by facilitating improved user interfaces and human-computer interaction, improved navigation and retrieval within heterogeneous document environments, user profiling, personalisation and contextualisation, etc. Such technologies also have the potential to solve or aid the management of problems relevant to the LIS community, such as semantic interoperability, advanced metadata and information integration, the management of large corpora of heterogeneous digital resources, and so forth.

 

This special themed issue of Library Review consolidates similarly themed conferences (e.g. the International Conference on Semantic Web and Digital Libraries (ICSD-2007)) and aims to demonstrate the relevance and application of Semantic Web technologies to digital libraries, repositories, and the LIS community generally.

 

Submissions are welcome from all interested parties and communities. Submissions may comprise research papers, evaluation, case studies, and descriptions of innovative projects, theoretical expositions, or reviews. Topics for submission could include, but are by no means limited to:

 

* Digital library and Semantic Web project case studies, best practice examples, etc.

 

* Innovative uses of RDF applications such as Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS), Web Ontology Language (OWL), Friend-of-a-Friend (FOAF), etc. within digital libraries or similar environments

 

* Use of Semantic Web techniques in the deployment of Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS), including terminology services

 

* Large scale metadata integration

 

* Knowledge organization and ontologies (including the application of knowledge organization systems or ontologies in interfaces to digital libraries)

 

* Reviews of Semantic Web techniques and their actual (and potential) application within digital libraries

 

* Ontological navigation and inferencing/reasoning techniques

 

* Methodologies for ontology management, evaluation, mapping, merging, integration, etc.

 

* Semantically rich interfaces to digital libraries

 

* Management, use and navigation of bibliographic data using Semantic Web technologies

 

* Semantic Web approaches to information retrieval within digital libraries

 

* Storage, manipulation, querying of RDF data

 

* Technology and Semantic Web modelling tools

 

* Knowledge organization systems and user interfaces at the crossroads

 

Owing to the aim of this special issue, submissions on the above noted topics are encouraged to:

 

* Emphasise the practical implications of Semantic Web research or developments for digital libraries and repositories;

 

* Where possible, endeavour to note the relevance of research findings for future digital library management or service provision;

 

* Comment on areas of useful overlap between the digital library and Semantic Web developments and how the aims of each community can be furthered by increased collaboration.

 

Important dates are as follows:

 

* Friday 5th October 2007: deadline for submission of papers

 

* Monday 5th November 2007: acceptance notification

 

* Friday 7th December 2007: submission of 'camera ready' version (complete with reviewers' revisions/changes)

 

* Spring 2008: publication of special issue

 

For further submission details see: http://cdlr.strath.ac.uk/LibraryReview/ or contact guest editor, George Macgregor ( george.macgregor@strath.ac.uk ).

ABSTRACTS

 

Links between Libraries and Museums: Investigating Museum-Library Collaboration in England and the USA

     HANNAH GIBSON, ANNE MORRIS, MARIGOLD CLEEVE

 

     Abstract. Various government bodies have promoted library-museum collaboration in recent years but research is lacking about common practices and experiences, and, in particular, what has worked and what hasn't. The research presented in this paper addresses this gap.

 

The first part outlines opinion and theory regarding library-museum collaboration as given in the professional literature. The second part describes practical findings from case-study investigations into public library-museum collaboration in England and the USA . This analysis takes a close look at the benefits of such collaborations.

 

The paper concludes with guidelines on how library-museum collaboration can occur successfully.

 

Public Library Programming for the Young Adult Reader: The Sierra Leone Experience

     JOHN ABDUL KARGBO

 

     Abstract. Young adults form a significant proportion of library users all over the world. In Sierra Leone , however, this group of users is the most easily neglected in terms of collection development and the provision of library services. As this article explores public library services to young adult readers in Sierra Leone, it notes the characteristics of young adults, provides an overview of public library services in Sierra Leone, and outlines the programs provided in meeting the needs of this user group to meet the goal of service for all without distinction.

 

A Call to Infuse Biographies of Asia-Pacific LIS Giants into the Curriculum

     BRENDAN LUYT AND ALTON CHUA

 

     Abstract. In this article we argue that LIS education in the Asia-Pacific region needs to develop an appreciation of the role inspirational and communicative pedagogies could potentially play in providing key leadership skills. Furthermore, we suggest that one way to do this is through biographical narratives. At the end of the article we provide three examples of librarian biographies that provide a number of important lessons about the profession for future librarians.

 

Training for Digital Reference: A South African Experience

     CECILIA PENZHORN

 

     Abstract. The ever-changing digital environment has had significant impact on the scope and nature of reference work. The question explored in this article is whether the necessary skills for efficient digital reference librarianship are being taught in library schools. For students to become effective practitioners in the digital environment they need not only theoretical knowledge but also practical experience in the application of digital reference technology. This article provides an overview of a practical course in reference work that was developed at the Department of Information Science, University of Pretoria , South Africa , in 2005. Practical sessions in the computer laboratories covered a range of synchronous and asynchronous technologies providing students with insight into and hands-on experience with digital reference. Continuous assessment throughout the course, and feedback from the students, identified possible shortcomings in the practical training programme, and specific suggestions are made to address these in the future.

 

Perceptions about Copyright of Digital Content and its Effects on

Scholarship: A South African Perspective

     CHARLES A. MASANGO

 

     Abstract. This paper examines the different layers of protection that exist in digital content and how users and corporate rights holders of information interpret the different protections. From a South African perspective, this paper analyses librarians', managers'

 

of consortia, informed users' and corporate rights holders'

perceptions and misconceptions on the interpretation of copyright protection with regard to digital content. It discusses the effects on the advancement of scholarship implied by the interpretations on copyright accorded by librarians, users and corporate rights holders to digital content. It concludes that in order to better access digital content to promote scholarship, the education of what copyright protects and knowledge of the terms and conditions of licensing agreements is necessary.

 

Delivering Electronic Resources at a Caribbean Academic Library

     Abstract. This article examines the options being employed at an academic library in the Caribbean, namely the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus, Trinidad and Tobago , to deliver, and enhance access to, electronic resources via the Internet.

 

Specifically , the focus is on some of the issues related to establishing the appropriate infrastructure for providing these services and the provision of details on the actual interface design.

 

The methodology used for the study phase included a review of relevant documentation, and interviews with participants in collection development and access provision activities as well as subject specialist librarians. Evaluation of the end user Web interface was also undertaken. Using a combination of middleware scripts in Cold Fusion, a backend database built on MySQL, this library has been able to provide a user interface for easily identifying and accessing the electronic resources relevant to the research needs of its clientele. Despite working with limited resources, this developing country academic library is moving in the right direction as far as managing its digital resources is concerned.

 

Technology-Enhanced Library Services and the Librarian's Identity Crisis in Academic and Research Libraries of India

     V. K. J. JEEVAN

 

     Abstract. Libraries in India are progressing well in automating housekeeping operations, refining old services and starting fresh ones. There is also an increasing presence of electronic information sources, external and internal, and services based upon them.

 

Libraries have progressively adopted library automation software, CD-ROM data bases, and Web access to electronic journals and digital libraries. With each advance in technology the time of the user to retrieve information has shown a drastic reduction. The emergence and increasing availability of the Internet and Web has led to a lot of information outside the library tempting users to depend less on libraries and to explore these alternate routes to fulfill their information needs. The rise in number and variety of information resources and the inability of most libraries to acquire/access them also leaves the libraries less able to meet the needs of clients, forcing the library and staff to shy away from their new roles.

 

Largely a service in many institutions that does not enjoy the power of re search and teaching staff, the plight of library professionals in many of these institutions results in low morale and underperformance. This paper attempts to look into these issues and the cultures and conflicts faced by users, libraries and librarians in academic and research libraries in India . It identifies the library as a service and access centre, managing and enhancing information in a technology-enhanced environment rather than as a mere repository.

Challenges of the Approaching Knowledge Society: Major International Issues Facing LIS Professionals

P.J. LOR AND J.J. BRITZ

 

Abstract. In the context of the follow-up work arising from the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), this paper attempts to answer the questions: Why should librarians and information workers be involved in international advocacy? And what are the international issues with which librarians should concern themselves? Special attention is paid to the role of IFLA, as the main international body representing the interests of librarians, and to the eleven WSIS "action lines" set out in the 2003 Geneva Plan of action, along which much of the current follow-up work is aligned. The concept of the Knowledge Society, and more specifically four criteria for a Knowledge Society - ICT infrastructure, information content, human intellectual capacity, and physical delivery infrastructure - are used as a framework for the answers we give to these questions. A brief discussion of these areas and some comments on the WSIS process precede a broad outline of the international issues facing library and information professionals.

 

The Library-Community Convergence Framework for Community Action: Libraries as Catalysts of Social Change

BHARAT MEHRA AND RAMESH SRINIVASAN

 

Abstract. This paper presents a library-community convergence framework (LCCF) to extend the role of all libraries to participate more fully in community action and enhance their function as proactive catalysts of social change, as compared to a sometimes perceived role of bystanders. Although the paper highlights deliberations about the involvement of public libraries in their local communities, and shares experiences of community interactions between library and information professionals and minority and underserved groups in American academic library settings, yet the proposed framework of convergence between the library-community and the methods/ approaches of community action are applicable across a variety of library contexts. The paper discusses select application of the LCCF for community action in two qualitative research studies, with local immigrant communities and sexual minorities, that use methods pioneered in ethnographic outreach and participatory action research (PAR) respectively. The results of these studies show that the LCCF is applicable in the development of various forms of services in different library environments. Ethnographic methods in the first study provide understanding of cross-cultural issues and uncover how local immigrant classifications can be induced from an ethnographic perspective to generate library classifications and information services that are locally relevant and participant- empowering. PAR ideologies in the second study underlie implementation of library and information interventions and community action while partnering with local sexual minorities and their allies, to address specific and contextualized community facets in ways that may promote communitywide social changes. Points of intersection from the two studies help identify key elements in the LCCF framework that can extend the role of all kinds of libraries as leaders and cultural planners of progressive community-based action.

 

Developing Information Literate Off-Campus Learners: Pedagogical Issues and Current Practice

ROBERT NEWTON

 

Abstract. This study examined the potential and actual roles that academic librarians play in supporting the development of information literate off-campus learners. It reviews the literature, concentrating in particular on issues related to the institutional context in which off-campus learners are supported and the teaching role of the academic librarian. A series of 12 interviews and a questionnaire survey of 70 academic librarians provided the basis for a detailed analysis of the current situation in Scotland and a Web survey was used to confirm key findings, extending the study to include academic librarians across the United Kingdom . The research concludes that the most critical issue to be addressed is the integration of academic library professionals within course teams. These librarians are willing to become involved in teaching and to take responsibility for the delivery of information literacy courses for off-campus learners, but in order to do so effectively they must operate and interact with students within the same learning space as the academic staff.

 

Downloading Communism: File Sharing as Samizdat in Ukraine

MARIA HAIGH

 

Abstract. This article explores the cultural meanings of file sharing and other forms of digital media piracy in Ukraine . Ukraine , the second most populous of the former Soviet republics, had been named as one of the ten "priority countries" with "unacceptable piracy rates". Western governments and commercial associations have lobbied intensively to present piracy in straightforward terms as a crime. In contrast, the author argues that file-sharing practices in Ukraine reflect distinctive features of its cultural heritage. Two factors are particularly important here: the Soviet Union 's disregard for international copyright norms and the cultural tradition of Samizdat that arose as a form of cultural resistance to the state's monopoly on conventional reproductive methods. Samizdat was closely tied to the emergence of a modern Ukrainian national identity. An analysis of current Ukrainian attitudes toward piracy, focused on users of the popular Muzon.com music-sharing site, shows that these factors influence attitudes toward the legitimacy of international copyright measures. Many Ukrainians distrust the imposition of controls on reproduction of information and resent the coercive tactics used against local pirate producers on behalf of Western copyright holders. Parallels between file sharing and Samizdat are particularly instructive because both take place from one individual to another along an anonymous chain, across national boundaries and without the control of copyright holders. In both cases, the political meaning of the action comes from participation in the process itself, as much as from the material being shared.
