By tapping into the youthful energy of these very students, the programme proposes to utilize cutting-edge cultural and social trends to improve communications with its most important customers – at an extremely low cost (from Library Management , Vol. 29 No. 3).

Subject: [Asis-l] New issue of Information Research

 

By tomorrow morning (or this evening on the west coast of the USA :-) you can get access to the latest issue of Information Research - Volume 13 No. 2 at http://InformationR.net/ir/

 

Here's the Editorial:

 

Introduction

 

As a truly open access journal on the 'Platinum' model (that is, free to access without charging author fees), we have no subscription list to tell us what our penetration of the market might beindeed, we have no market, since the journal is freely distributed. All we can rely upon, then, are the hits received by the journals papers and the readers who register to receive the quarterly e-mail message that alerts them to its publication.

 

At this moment, as I write, we have 2,718 registered readers, the latest of whom signed up at 14:31 today (15th June, 2008), from the USA. I haven't checked the geographical distribution for some time now, but other sources tell me that those readers are spread throughout the world in a way that is unmatched by print on paper publishing.

 

The hit counters tell us a little more, and from time to time I've drawn up lists of the 'top 20' papers on the basis of those hits.

Google Analytics has helped, more recently, to give me a view of what is used and what is notand there is very little of the latter. It tells me, for example, that the top page of the journal has received

35,701 unique page views in the past twelve months from visitors from

156 countries, the top ten being: United States, United Kingdom, India, Australia, Canada, Spain, Sweden, Malaysia, Finland and Denmark. The map you can find by scrolling down to the bottom of the top page of the journal gives a nice graphic representation of the geographical distribution:

 

The top ten papers over the past year, on the basis of hits from these eager information seekers around the world, are (in rank order):

 

    * The nonsense of 'knowledge management'

    * Environmental scanning as information seeking and organizational learning

    * An action research approach to curriculum development

    * Five personality dimensions and their influence on information behaviour

    * Understanding knowledge management and information management:

the need for an empirical perspective

    * The duality of knowledge

    * Scanning the business external environment for information:

evidence from Greece

    * Scanning the business environment for information: a grounded theory approach

    * Information as a tool for management decision making: a case study of Singapore

    * Information literacy in Europe: a literature review

 

In this issue

 

We have a very diverse set of papers in this issue, from the usual wide geographic range. We have papers whose authors come from Brazil, Lithuania, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the UK as well as the usual "Watch this" column from Terry Brooks in the USA.

 

The diversity of subjects represented is obvious from the title page:

we have papers on activity theory and information requirements for Web applications; records use in organizations; citation counts and the UK's dreaded Research Assessment Exercise; agricultural information systems in Turkey; information needs and their associated information competencies in the Brazilian banking system; and decision support systems in Lithuania. The journal's scope is advertised as covering information research in all its variety, rather than limiting it to one established discipline or field, and an issue like this demonstrates the validity of that approach.

 

One of the benefits of diversity is that readers are drawn to work that, otherwise, they would never come across in what they think of as the 'key' journals they read. Indeed, messages from readers tell me that this, together with the international scope of the journal, is one of the things that stimulates themand keeps them coming back.

 

Book reviews

 

Compared with the March issue, which had a substantial backlog of books to present, we have relatively few in this issue. However, some 'regular readers' tell me that the reviews are one of the most useful features of the journal, so no doubt even a small number is better than none!

Thank you!

 

My thanks to all the usual suspects for copy-editing, link-checking, translations, etc., as well as a continuing thanks to my Associate Editors for their work in managing papers through the review and editing process.

Subject: [Asis-l] JIITO New articles and Call for Manuscripts

 

Dear colleagues:

 

Four new articles have been published in the Journal of Information, Information Technology, and Organizations (JIITO) and are ready for your perusal on our Website: http://www.jiito.org/view.html.

 

These articles are about

 

   o  Vendor-client communication in IT outsourcing in Asia-Europe-US

   o  Acceptance of dress model technology in e-commerce in Europe

   o  Computer supported collaborative learning and Fashion Design in Asia

   o  Adoption of self-service systems in North America.

 

JIITO is an academically peer reviewed journal in the third year of its existence. JIITO's young and enthusiastic editorial and review boards provide a fast review cycle and collegial mentoring.

 

JIITO has a global reach. Our access logs indicate that the journal is read in

168 countries, the top ten being the US, India, the UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, Malaysia, Iran, Sweden, and China.

 

Please consider submitting your article to JIITO, provided it fits the specialized area of information systems research indicated in its title:

We are trying to bridge the gap between IT-focused and information-focused research, and are primarily interested in empirical research.

For example, among the most downloaded articles in the past two years are an article on e-commerce (Lawler & Joseph, 2006; MIS approach) and an article on digital records archiving (Thomaz, 2006; LIS approach).

 

 

I look forward to working with you,

CALL FOR PAPERS

 

Digital Convergence: Libraries, Archives, and Museums in the Information Age

 

Three Special Issues of Library Quarterly, Archival Science, and Museum Management and Curatorship

 

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

 

The editors of Library Quarterly, Archival Science, and Museum Management and Curatorship are pleased to announce plans for three special issues exploring the shared information needs and challenges facing libraries, archives, and museums in the information age; the overlapping educational goals of library and information science, archival studies, and museum studies programs; and areas of convergence for educators and professionals working to meet user needs in libraries, archives, and museums.

 

The resulting three separate issues of Library Quarterly, Archival Science, and Museum Management and Curatorship will be published at approximately the same time (end of 2009), and all three issues will be Guest Edited by Dr. Paul F. Marty, College of Information, Florida State University.

 

The impetus for this project stems from a recent conference, sponsored by the IMLS, on the need for information professionals who can transcend the traditional boundaries between libraries, archives, and museums to meet user needs in the information age (see: http://chips.ci.fsu.edu ).

 

The increased use of and reliance on digital resources has blurred traditional distinctions between information organizations, leading to a digital convergence of libraries, archives, and museums. In light of this convergence, there is a need for more research examining how libraries, archives, and museums can collaborate and combine forces to better serve their users, many of whom do not clearly distinguish among different institutions or the information resources they manage.

 

We are looking for papers addressing one or more of the following three broad questions in ways that cut across the traditional distinctions between libraries, archives, and museums:

 

1. What are the information needs of libraries, archives, and museums in the information age, both internally (staff and other

professionals) and externally (public services)? How can new information technologies support information professionals as they adapt to meet these needs?

 

2. What are the roles and responsibilities of information professionals in libraries, archives, and museums in the information age? What are the knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to succeed at their jobs (e.g. intellectual property, information management, digital preservation, etc.)?

 

3. What kinds of educational programs best prepare information professionals to meet the needs of libraries, archives, and museums in the information age, including degree and non-degree programs? How are these programs currently preparing their students, and what potential is there for sharing expertise across programs?

 

While authors may choose to focus primarily on libraries, archives, or museums (depending on their interests and expertise), each article should attempt to explore issues of convergence across libraries, archives, and museums.

From Information to Meaning: Confronting Challenges of the Twenty-first Century CAROL C. KUHLTHAU Abstract. New challenges arise for researchers and practitioners as we move away from concentration on the technology of searching, and turn our attention to using information for problem solving and creativity in the workplace and daily living. This paper explores links between information behavior, information literacy and the impact of information, drawing on the author's research into the user's perspective of information seeking and use and the model of the Information Search Process (ISP). The ISP model describes thoughts, actions and feelings in six stages of interacting with information to construct meaning. Central to the ISP model is the finding that information commonly increases uncertainty in the early stages of the search process. Increased uncertainty creates a zone of intervention for intermediaries and system designers that support users in their quest for seeking meaning from information. Innovative approaches to interaction between people and information a!

 re needed to bridge the divide between information behavior, information literacy and impact of information in order to address issues of the twenty-first century.

 

Information Mastering, Perceived Health and Societal Status: An Empirical Study of the Finnish Population STEFAN EK AND GUNILLA WIDÉN-WULFF Abstract. Health education programmes are generally based on the assumption that health-promoting knowledge and corresponding behaviour are automatically created as people are subjected to a rich flow of information. Improved knowledge is, however, not the same as good behaviour. Information is not synonymous with knowledge; neither is the transformation of knowledge into behaviour a simple or linear process. There are indications of gaps among the different strata of population in society, with some groups being able to gain more from societal efforts than others. In health matters, health literacy skills, i.e. health information mastering, has been emphasised as a crucial asset. The aim of this paper is to show the links that exist between an individual's everyday life information mastering, subjective health status and social position. The objective is also to provide an introduction to the theory of the sense of coherence. A particular aim is to point out the close relat!

 ionship between the sense of coherence and information mastering. The results show clearly that there is a very strong social determinant in health. The relationship between the sense of coherence and self-rated health is also very strong, as well as the relationship between the sense of coherence and self-rated social class. According to the results of this study, and also as the theory predicts, the sense of coherence seems to be rooted in the ability to manage, cope with, and process information - that is, in information mastering.

 

What Matters? Shaping Meaningful Learning through Teaching Information Literacy LOUISE LIMBERG, MIKAEL ALEXANDERSSON, ANNIKA LANTZ-ANDERSSON, AND LENA FOLKESSON Abstract. The point of departure for this article is an assumed gap between the different communities concerned with the practices of teaching or researching information literacy. Its purpose is to discuss some critical features of teaching information literacy identified in three previous research studies with a view toward understanding how they support meaningful learning outcomes and what the implications of this understanding are for information literacy education. The analysis is framed by a sociocultural perspective of learning that views information seeking and learning as social practices set within the discursive practice of school. The findings indicate that teacher/student interaction with a focus on learning goals and content is a vital condition for students' meaningful learning. Focus on the object of teaching, away from information seeking skills toward an emphasis on the quality of students' research questions, on negotiating learning goals between pedagogue!

 s and students, and on the critical evaluation of information sources related to the knowledge contents of students' assignments improves learning. The conclusions are that observing such critical features of information literacy in teaching may allow the discursive practice of school to be reshaped in favour of more genuine research-based learning. A second conclusion is that there are mutual benefits in a closer interaction between the communities of teaching and researching information literacy.

 

Information Practices in Elementary School ANNA LUNDH AND LOUISE LIMBERG Abstract. This article presents a qualitative study that examines the roles of pedagogues in elementary schools with regard to young children's information literacy. The concept of information literacy is seen from a sociocultural perspective, as a dimension of literacy that varies in different social practices. Further, from this perspective the importance of the mediating functions of tools used in information seeking is stressed. Data was collected from a Swedish village school from one focus group interview and two individual interviews with different kinds of pedagogues. Problem-centred teaching was also observed in five forms with pupils aged 6-8. In the analysis an overarching division or two discourses connected to information literacy emerged. On the one hand, literacy, aesthetic activities and the reading of fiction were the focus and, on the other hand, there was a focus on information literacy, utilitarian information-seeking activities and ICT tools. It is also !

 shown that information seeking is given a certain meaning in problem-centred activities in elementary school. The authors consider that the discourses found in the empirical material might have implications for the concept of information literacy, if they are explored to a fuller extent.

 

Evaluating the Impact of Information Literacy in Higher Education: Progress and Prospects DAVID STREATFIELD AND SHARON MARKLESS Abstract. The past few years have seen a growing interest by library staff in information literacy interventions focussed on students and, more recently, on postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers. This paper reviews progress to date in evaluating the impact of information literacy work in Higher Education in the UK. It also describes a collaborative UK national initiative in which various university library teams engaged in evaluating information literacy. Finally it proposes a research design for further evaluation work in higher education, combining a new student-focussed framework for information literacy development (already field-tested) and application of concept mapping as a diagnostic tool.

 

Community Information Literacy: Developing an Australian Research Agenda HELEN PARTRIDGE, CHRISTINE BRUCE, AND CHRISTINE TILLEY Abstract. The majority of information literacy (IL) research has been conducted within the confines of educational or workplace settings. Little to no research has explored IL in community contexts. This paper will consider the current state of IL research within the community setting. The paper uses three recent IL studies as a vehicle for developing an Australian community IL research agenda. Three observations are made about community information literacy (CIL) and CIL research: (i) it is multi- and inter-disciplinary; (ii) it has a learning lens; and (iii) it has a pluralistic approach. The CIL research agenda should be seen as practical and real - it is about real people, doing real things in real life contexts. To achieve this we must bring together a research community that is ready to cross boundaries and forge relationships with other groups. In addition a coherent and structured research agenda should be established.

 

Sense-Making and Synchronicity: Information-Seeking Behaviors of Millennials and Baby Boomers LYNN SILIPIGNI CONNAWAY , MARIE L. RADFORD, TIMOTHY J. DICKEY, JOCELYN DE ANGELIS WILLIAMS, AND PATRICK CONFER Abstract. A challenge facing libraries is to develop and update collections and services to meet the needs of the multiple generations of users with differing approaches to information seeking. The different characteristics and information needs of 'Baby Boomers' and 'Millennials' present a dichotomy for library service and system development. Results are reported here for two research projects that investigated habits and needs of library users and non-users. Both studies sought to identify how and why individuals seek and use information. The first study deals with the findings of focus group interviews with seventy-eight randomly selected participants, and fifteen semi-structured interviews with a subset of these participants. The second study reports the results of focus group interviews with twenty-three Millennials, and an analysis of 492 virtual reference services (VRS) transcripts. The studies indicate that both generations consistently identify Google and human sour!

 ces as the first sources they use for quick searches. The younger Millennials mentioned consulting parents most frequently, while the older Millennials consult friends and professors. Baby Boomers indicate that they consult their personal libraries and colleagues. The findings have implications for the development of next generation library online catalogs, as well as services, including VRS.

Subject: [IFLA-L] ScieCom info - a Nordic Baltic Forum for Scientific Communication

 

**apologies for cross-posting**

 

 

Welcome to the first issue of ScieCom info as a Nordic Baltic Forum for Scientific Communication

 

Sciecom Info <http://www.sciecom.org/sciecominfo>  vol 4, no 1  

 

Supported by Nordbib, <http://nordbib.net/About-Nordbib.aspx> the old ScieCom info has been revived to focus specifically on the Nordic and Baltic countries. We are proud to announce our rebirth and our new editors. From a vast fund of experience they will do their best to cover developments and events in their respective countries and make ScieCom info a true Nordic-Baltic Forum for scientific communication.

 

To set the stage, this issue presents individual state-of-the-art reports from all our countries. We wanted to start with a broad overview, both of what has been done so far and of plans for future developments. Readers are invited to comment and will hopefully take an active part in supplying us with news and ideas.

 

Our aim is to inspire new activities, to facilitate knowledge exchange between Nordic/Baltic stakeholders, and to increase the international visibility of Nordic and Baltic policies and activities..

 

We wish to demonstrate the importance of Open Access in the Nordic and Baltic countries and describe theoretical and best-practice models for financing, rights management, long-term preservation, as well as other fundamental issues.
