Subject: New Australian Publication - Evidence-based Practice across the Health Professions

Evidence-based Practice across the Health Professions 

Tammy Hoffmann, Sally Bennett and 
Chris Del Mar

Inter-professional education that begins in undergraduate or graduate-entry programs has been accepted by universities as a proven method for fostering collaborative practice among health professionals yet there are few truly multidisciplinary books about evidence-based practice that meet the needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled in inter-professional courses.
Evidence-based Practice across the Health Professions is designed to meet this need. It provides the reader with an excellent foundation in the knowledge and skills necessary to perform and understand the implications of evidence-based practice within a healthcare environment. It discusses the critical role of clinical reasoning and includes a range of practical strategies to facilitate shared decision making and effective communication with clients for improved client outcomes.

Google book settlement

-----Original Message-----

Subject: [IFLA-L] A massive and principled critique of the Google book settlement

 

A massive and principled critique of the Google book settlement

A growing number of players among publishers, authors, libraries etc are
critisising the Google book settlement.

Complaints and interventions towards the NY court can be found here:

http://news.justia.com/cases/featured/new-york/nysdce/1:2005cv08136/273913/

New in this context is that a government has presented its views officially to
the court - and this is the german government with its letter to the court of
31st of august 2009.

It can be found here:

http://docs.justia.com/cases/federal/district-courts/new-york/nysdce/1:2005cv08136/273913/179/0.pdf

The intervention is a massive and principled critique of the Google book
settlement and stands in sharp contrast to the positive position papers on the
settlement.

The conclusion of the german government is extremely clear:

"For all the foregoing reasons, the Court should reject the settlement proposal
in its entirety or, in the alternative, exclude German authors and publishers
from the class."

The main points of the german government are:

"As viewed by Germany, and summarized below, the primary flaws of the
proposed Settlement are:

  • The Settlement will have a significant impact on the interests of German
    and European authors and publishers, since they are bound by the
    provisions of the Settlement unless they expressly opt out;

  • Google's conduct is not compatible with the fundamental principles and
    provisions of German and European copyright law, pursuant to which
    each author's consent must be obtained before digital reproduction, display
    and distribution. The Settlement is a private consensual "agreement" with
    a commercial American company which owes its primary legal
    obligations to its shareholders and not the public interest.

  • An essential feature of international copyright law, as mandated by Berne,
    is the prohibition of any formality as a precondition for enjoying or
    enforcing a copyright interest. The U.S. eliminated such statutory
    formalities when it joined Berne. The Settlement re-imposes such
    formalities by requiring registration of authors and their works in order to
    enjoy any of the benefits of the Settlement, thus assuring that many
    authors will be left out through oversight.

  • The creation of digital copies by Google for the purpose of developing a
    commercially driven database is not permitted under German law as this
    violates the author's exclusive right of reproduction. Under German
    copyright law, rightholders must give their consent before any copies,
    including digital copies, of books are made. Google's actions are not
    justified by any existing exceptions (Sections 44a to 62 of the German
    Copyright Act);

  • Google's creation of digital copies for the purpose of developing a
    commercially driven database is likewise not permitted under European law.
    Pursuant to Article 2 of the Directive on the Harmonisation ofCertain
    Aspects of Copyright and Related Rights in the Information
    Society (see 2001/29/EC the "Copyright Directive"), the European
    Community author has an exclusive right of reproduction. Google's
    actions violate this exclusive right and cannot be justified by any of the
    exceptions provided for in Article 5, 2 and 3 of the Copyright
    Directive;

  • Digitization also constitutes reproduction under U.S. copyright law.
    Unauthorized reproduction by Google on such a massive scale is not
    justified by application of any "transformative" or "fair use" defense
    recognized by the U.S. federal courts. 10 Google more or less concedes this
    point by seeking this Settlement. Nevertheless, the proposed Settlement
    compounds the infringement by forcing non-consenting German authors to
    grant a license for acts that violate their rights under U.S. and German law
    through a judicially-sanctioned compulsory implied "consent."

  • Furthermore, opting out is unlikely to keep a German author's books from
    being digitized and displayed as Google has intimated that it will continue
    to treat the books of those authors as fair game under the rubric of fair use.
    If an author does not agree and opts out, he or she has the "option"
    to sue Google;

  • The Settlement also permits Google to digitally scan books of German
    authors and make them available to the public in the U.S. Authors of
    "commercially available" books will still need to grant consent for this
    display. However, should Google unilaterally determine that a book is not
    commercially available (out-of-print), it need not secure any rightholder
    permission -- meaning those who opted in by not opting out. Instead,
    Google may make such display uses as it chooses unless the rightholder
    follows the filing requirements. It seems unlikely that most German
    authors will make such formal filings as such filings would, as discussed
    above, normally be considered a formality prohibited by international
    copyright laws. In failing to file, however, the works of the vast majority
    of German authors will be held hostage to whatever uses Google, in its
    sole discretion, chooses to make;

    • As a consequence, the Settlement breaches the WCT which
      provides in Article 6 that authors enjoy the exclusive right of
      authorizing the making available to the public of the original
      and copies of their works. Under the Settlement, no express
      authorization by rightholders is required for out-of-print works.
      For the reasons outlined above, most works of German authors
      will be deemed commercially unavailable either because they
      are out-of-print in the U.S. (generally because of the limited
      demand for German language books in the U.S.), or the
      authors neglected to file formal claim forms, or because these
      authors are not easily found by Google. The determination of
      commercial availability is solely within Google's discretion and
      may, in close cases, give Google an incentive to balance
      considerations in a manner that favors a finding that a book is
      out-of-print;

    • At the same time, the Settlement contravenes both German and
      European law, since both recognize the right of "making
      available" as an author's exclusive right (Section 19a of the
      German Copyright Act and Article 3, Para. 2 of the Copyright
      Directive). This right is analogous to the distribution and
      display rights that "make available" public access to any given
      work. As a result, U.S. law comports with international
      copyright standards but the proposed Settlement does not;

    • Under the provisions of the Settlement, Google is granted, as a
      practical matter, a virtual monopoly in the U.S. on orphan
      works, namely, those works protected by copyright where the
      authors or rightholders are unidentified or cannot be located.
      While not specifically identified as such in the Settlement,
      orphan works still play an important role. Since orphan works
      are usually out of print, Google does not need express
      authorisation to make them publicly available, so that it faces
      no adverse consequences should an author of an orphan ever
      come forward. It is likely that many German authors will fail
      to file claims, so that their works will become the legal
      equivalent of orphan works. As such, the revenues generated
      by their orphans will fall into the Settlement fund for
      distribution only to authors who have filed rather than to the
      many non-filing German authors;

    • Other market competitors who might compete with Google will
      not enjoy the same legal safe harbor from orphan work
      liability. Such legal safe harbor would only be available to
      competitors through legislation or litigation, thus, giving
      Google a head start that can only lessen competition. In
      contrast, Germany only recognizes such a limited safe harbor
      for certain non-commercial uses of digitized works by virtue of
      an enactment by the German legislature rather than a private
      agreement. Similarly, the U.S. Congress has been considering
      passage of orphan works legislation that would, through a
      careful balancing of public interests, provide universal access
      to orphan works while still maintaining some measure of
      accountability by users. The Settlement, thus, not only
      contradicts the laws of Germany but will also likely hamper
      Congressional efforts to balance these competing interests. In
      so doing, the orphans, whether from German or U.S. soil, will
      not receive all of the protections they might otherwise have
      enjoyed;

    • Google searches conducted from Germany would include
      orphan works. Such a service would violate German and EC
      law because no consent has been given. Giving Google free
      rein to unfairly compete in the marketplace will weaken
      German and EC competitors while failing to adequately
      compensate Gelman authors for their creative endeavours;

    • The proposed Settlement results in a de facto monopoly on
      information and an intensification of media concentration in
      Google. As a result, the right of free access to information as
      well as the existing cultural diversity in both Germany and
      Europe, will be usurped; and

    • German and European non-commercial library projects, such
      as the Europeana and the DDB, currently in development
      expose the fallacy of Google's argument that the social benefits
      of the Google Library Project and Book Search outweigh the
      copyright interests of the authors and publishers. The German
      initiatives continue to advance even while complying with
      traditional copyright rules. As shown by the German laws, the
      social benefits can be achieved without the need or justification
      to vest virtual monopoly power in a single private corporation.

Information Institute Launches Web Portal to Facilitate Public Library
Hurricane Preparedness and Response

The Information Use Management & Policy Institute (Information Institute)
directed by Charles R. McClure, Francis Eppes Professor at the College of
Information, Florida State University (FSU) has officially launched its web
portal: Hurricane Preparedness and Response for Florida Public Libraries.
The portal provides a wealth of information and resources for public
librarians and others to prepare for and recover from hurricanes and other
disasters.

The portal was developed as part of a $311,440 grant awarded by the Florida
Catastrophic Storm Risk Management Center at Florida State University’s
College of Business to assist public libraries and local communities to
better plan for and respond to hurricanes. The Information Institute has
partnered with the State Library and Archives of Florida, directed by Judith
Ring, Lyrasis, directed by Kate Nevins, and Florida’s Multi-type Library
Cooperatives and public libraries throughout the region as well as federal,
state, local and community agencies concerned with Florida hurricane
preparedness and response.

Florida public libraries have provided a range of useful hurricane and
disaster preparation and response services and activities, but there has
been no systematic effort to identify the activities, best practices,
guidelines and services provided or to better organize, coordinate, and
assist all Florida public libraries to provide these hurricane/disaster
planning and response services.

The web portal includes information on public library service roles, along
with associated best practices and implementation guidelines; resources to
assist public librarians and others to prepare for and recover from
hurricanes and other disasters; and interactive blogs and wikis for public
librarians, emergency managers, and other to share information, resources,
and best practices.

The FSU Hurricane Project has been featured on FSU.com
<http://www.fsu.com/pages/2009/05/29/hurricane_preparedness_for_libraries.html>

Functional Requirements for Authority Data

Functional Requirements for Authority Data

This book represents one portion of the extension and expansion of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records. FRBR has been published as Nr 19 in the present Series. It contains a further analysis of attributes of various entities that are the centre of focus for authority data (persons, families, corporate bodies, works, expressions, manifestations, items, concepts, objects, events, and places), the name by which these entities are known, and the controlled access points created by cataloguers for them. The conceptual model describes the attributes of these entities and the relationships between them.

The current functional requirements were drafted by IFLA's Working Group on Functional Requirements and Numbering of Authority Records (FRANAR) which was established in 1999. Since 2003 IFLA is sharing responsibility for FRANAR with the Conference of Directors of National Libraries (CDNL).

Editor Glenn E. Patton has been the Chair of the FRANAR Working Group since 2002.

National Bibliographies in the Digital Age:
Guidance and New Directions

The changes brought about by the World Wide Web and the explosion of electronic media have called into question many of the assumptions on which national bibliographies have been founded. The need was growing of a route map to navigate through uncharted territories. After a preparation period of several years, IFLA´s Bibliography Section endorsed this large set of guidelines. They seek to help national bibliographic agencies improve their bibliographic services. Many examples and references are included.

_Library Mashups: Exploring New Ways to Deliver Library Data_ / Edited
by Nicole C. Engard / Foreword by Jenny Levine
2009 / 352 pp /softbound / ISBN 978-1-57387-372-7 / Regular Price $39.50

As web users become more savvy and demanding, libraries are looking
for new ways to allow patron participation and keep their websites
dynamically and collaboratively up-to-date. Mashups—web applications
that combine freely available data from various sources to create
something new—can be one very powerful way to meet patrons’
expectations and provide exemplary web-based service.

In Library Mashups, Nicole C. Engard and 25 contributors from all over
the world walk readers through definitions, summaries, and practical
uses of mashups in libraries. Examples range from ways to allow those
without programming skills to make simple website updates, to
modifying the library OPAC, to using popular sites like Flickr,
Yahoo!, LibraryThing, Google Maps, and Delicious to share and combine
digital content. This essential guide is required reading for all
libraries and librarians seeking a dynamic, interactive web presence.

Library of Congress has opened a new site -- http://id.loc.gov

Subject: FW: [ARLIS-L] id.loc.gov is up

 


For your information.

Dorothy



The Library of Congress has opened a new site -- http://id.loc.gov -- which will provide access to various vocabularies and standards maintained at LC. This replaces lcsh.info which was on a non-official site and provided access to LCSH is machine-readable formats. Below is the announcement message sent out by Sally McCallum, head of the Network Development and MARC Standards Office:

The Library of Congress has opened its ID.LOC.GOV web service,
Authorities and Vocabularies, with the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) as the initial offering.  The primary goal of this service is to enable machines to programmatically access data at the Library of Congress but the web interface also provides simple user access.  We view this service as a step toward exposing and interconnecting vocabulary and thesaurus data via URLs.   For LCSH, we are fortunate to have been able to link terms to a similar service provided in Europe for RAMEAU, a French subject heading vocabulary closely coordinated with LCSH.

We are very interested to get feedback on the uses and usefulness of the service to inform ways that we might enhance it.  (There is a comment form at the site.).  Over the next few months we will also be expanding it to other vocabularies commonly found in standards that the Library supports such as the Thesaurus of Graphic Materials, geographic area, language, and relator codes, and preservation events and roles.

So please go to the site and explore it for yourself at http://id.loc.gov.

"Update: The White House has announced it has sent Ferriero's nomination to the Senate for confirmation.

President Obama reportedly plans to appoint David S. Ferriero to the position of U.S. Archivist, a job that entails deploying a massive technologically-agnostic system to preserve and publish the historical record of the United States, according to the nonprofit National Coalition for History.

The post has been vacant since December, when former Archivist Allen Weinstein, who has Parkinson's disease, resigned, citing health reasons.

Ferriero brings with him some 30 years as an employee at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Libraries and was its acting co-director of libraries before departing in 1996 to head Duke University's library."

OECD White Paper: We Need Publishing Standards for Datasets and Data Tables

From: asis-l-bounces@asis.org [mailto:asis-l-bounces@asis.org] On Behalf Of gerrymck

Subject: [Asis-l] OECD White Paper: _We Need Publishing Standards forDatasets andData Tables_

Colleagues/

A Cosmic Coincidence …

/Gerry

OECD has released a white paper, We Need Publishing Standards for Datasets and Data Tables, which examines the problems with current data discoverability and citations and the remedy in creating industry standards for bibliographic dataset metadata and linking.

Written by Toby Green, Head of Publishing at OECD and an expert in data publishing, the paper details the problems with user ability to locate and reference online data.

Datasets are a significant part of the scholarly record and being published much more frequently but with widely inconsistent metadata, links and citations.

The paper proposes bibliographic metadata standards that could be implemented to provide users and librarians with data that is as accessible and as easy to find and catalogue as written works like journal articles and book chapters. By following existing scholarly metadata standards, datasets can easily utilise the existing discovery channels that are used by e-journals and e-books, including library systems, cross reference linking, publishing platforms, and search engines.

The paper provides straightforward standards that 'publishers, librarians and data providers can implement to improve the accessibility and usage of important datasets, both the data that underlies scholarly works and data in that is published in its own right.

A life member of the American Library Association and Illinois Library Association, as well as a past-member of the American Society for Information Science, the Association for Library and Information Science Education, the American Society for Information Science (serving as Chicago chapter president 1992, 1993), and Catholic Library Association, Bill Brace was also a member of the Caxton Club, Rotary International, Prairie Club of Chicago and University Club of Chicago.

Professor William (Bill) Brace is survived by his loving wife of many years, Phyllis Arlene Mayer Brace (known as Pam), nephews Melvin

(Sherry), Robert (Susie), and Patrick Brace; a niece, Suzanne Brace; grandnieces, Joanna, Victoria, Madeline, and Skylar Brace; grandnephews Dylan, Ashton, and Aidan Brace, all of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the many students, alums, and professional colleagues he served in his long career as a librarian and library and information science educator.

As noted, the memorial celebration for Bill will be held at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, September 24 at the Nineteenth Century Club, 178 Forest Avenue in Oak Park, Illinois and Bill's many friends, colleagues, and students are invited to attend to reminisce and celebrate his life.

Maryland’s iSchool Mourns the Loss of Dr. Paul Wasserman


College Park, MD (5/14/09)- The College of Information Studies, University of Maryland announces the death of Dr. Paul Wasserman, Professor Emeritus and the College’s founding Dean with sadness and sympathy for his family. Wasserman died Friday, May 8, 2009, following a period of ill health; he was 85 years old. Services will be held on Tuesday, May 26, 2009, with burial at 9:00 am at Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, VA, followed by a memorial service at 11:30 am in Memorial

Chapel, University of Maryland, College Park. Lunch after the memorial service will be at the clubhouse of the University of Maryland Golf Course.

Wasserman took up the post of Dean of the School of Library and Information Services, University of Maryland, in January 1965, shortly after the school was formally approved. He began work with a secretary but without faculty, curriculum, or students. However, the promise to open the school in fall 1965 had been made and was kept through Wasserman’s efforts. He built the new school to be interdisciplinary, recruiting an engineer, a physicist, and an industrial psychologist, among others, to be the first faculty. He had undertaken a post-doctoral fellowship in data processing and information technology and knew the importance of technology to information work. The technology required course in the MLS program was one of the first of its kind. Wasserman attained full accreditation of the program by the American Library Association before the first graduated in 1966. He led the design of the doctoral program, which admitted its first students in 1967. He left the deanship in 1970 and returned to a fulltime faculty position.

Wasserman was well known for his contributions to library administration. He lectured and consulted internationally, frequently working on programs to educate library administrators in developing countries. With his colleague Mary Lee Bundy he edited Reader in Library Administration (Microcard Editions, 1968). His interest in designing information products led to the publication of numerous reference books. One of the best known is Statistics Sources,  first published by Gale Research Company in 1962; this massive compilation of sources of statistical information remains in publication. He taught his popular course on the design of information products and services until 2005.

Wasserman is, perhaps, best known for his commitment to international cooperation in information services. He lent his professional expertise to projects in more than two dozen countries and was admired and respected by library educators and practitioners throughout the world. He worked with many organizations including USAID, OAS, Department of State, FID, IFLA, UN organizations including UNESCO, and national and regional organizations including ALA, ASIS (now ASIST), and government agencies and professional organizations of many nations. He spoke at a conference in Hanoi in 1991 when the US did not have representation in Vietnam.

Prior to coming to Maryland, Wasserman was Librarian and Professor, Graduate School of Business and Public Administration, Cornell University. He held many visiting professorships in the US and abroad. He earned a B.B.A. from the College of the City of New York, master’s degrees in library science and in economics from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan.

Wasserman is survived by his wife Krystyna Wasserman, son Steven Wasserman, daughter Jacqueline Monroe, and grandchildren. Cards and notes may be sent to the Wasserman family c/o College of Information Studies, 4105 Hornbake Building, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. More information about memorial donations will be made available later on the College’s website (www.ischool.umd.edu).

Buenos Aires named World Book Capital 2011

At a meeting in Paris on 12 June 2009, the Jury of World Book Capital, a jury which includes IPA, IBF, IFLA and UNESCO, appointed Buenos Aires as World Book Capital 2011 for the quality and variety of its application file, widely and enthusiastically supported by all players involved in the book industry (publishers, bookstores and libraries). Last year, the same jury had appointed Ljubljana, Slovenia as World Book Capital 2010. As usual, the program will start on World Book & Copyright Day on 23 April 2011.
The current World Book Capital is Beirut, Lebanon.
Every year, UNESCO convenes delegates from the International Publishers Association, the International Booksellers Federation (IBF) and the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) to grant the title of UNESCO World Book Capital to one city.
The city may hold the title for one designated year, from 23 April (UNESCO World Book Day) until 22 April of the following year. During that year it undertakes to organise and run a larger number of events around books, literature and reading. The programme brings together the local and national book industries and puts books and book culture into the public eye. It attracts sponsorship and extra funding for book related institutions. The programme raises awareness for literacy and reading issues, libraries and books shops and highlights the overall benefits of a lively book culture. The title is also used to promote tourism and draw national and international attention to the literary heritage of a city and nation.

OCT 2009

CALL FOR APPLICATIONSFOR THE WORLD BOOK CAPITAL NOMINATION 2012

The Selection Committee for the World Book Capital is calling for nominations for the World Book Capital 2012. The complete applications, duly substantiated, compulsorily including a cover or support letter from the mayor of the candidate-city and drafted in one of UNESCO's official languages (French, English, Spanish, Russian, Arabic or Chinese), should reach UNESCO no later than Wednesday 31 March 2010 (Paris Time). No application received after this date will be taken into consideration.

The applications shall contain maximum 25 pages in A4 format and should be transmitted by the post to the UNESCO contact below (in 5 original copies) or by e mail in pdf format, to the address wbcc@unesco.org.

The applications will provide a contact person (name, title, postal address, telephone and e mail) responsible for the correspondence between the City and the Committee before the selection and after the nomination.

In sending their applications, the candidate cities grant UNESCO and the other members of the Selection the right to circulate and publish the applications on line for information purposes.

The candidate programmes shall be aimed at promoting books and fostering reading during the period between one World Book and Copyright Day and the next (23 April).

To involve all regions* of the world in turn, the Selection Committee will avoid the consecutive nomination of cities from the same region. Since the 2011 title was awarded to a city of the Latin America and the Caribbean region (Buenos Aires), no candidature from this region will be taken into consideration for the 2012 nomination.

The applicants' programme proposals will be examined in the light of the following six criteria:

    

   1.  the submission of an activity programme specifically conceived for the World Book Capital City programme and implemented during the city's term as Capital City.
   2.  a general outline of expenses planned and a strategy to identify possible financial resources
   3.  the degree of municipal, regional, national and international involvement, including professional and non-government organizations, and the impact of the programmes.

   4.    the quantity and quality of one-time or ongoing activities organized by the applicant city in collaboration with national and international professional organizations representing writers, publishers,             booksellers and librarians and in full respect of the various players in the book   supply chain and in the scientific and literary community.
   5.    the quantity and quality of any other noteworthy projects promoting and fostering books and reading.
   6.    the conformity with the principles of freedom of expression, freedom to publish and to distribute information, as stated in the UNESCO Constitution as well as by Articles 19 and 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and by the Agreement on the Importation of Educational, Scientific and Cultural Materials (Florence Agreement).

By presenting its application each candidate city commits itself, in case of nomination, to:

1.    Associate UNESCO and the three professional associations represented in the Selection Committee, in its communication and information campaign namely by displaying their respective logos, at all levels  on all publications and on the web site dedicated to the initiative);

2.    Provide UNESCO, which will share it with all members of the Selection Committee, with:
*    An interim report on the activities implemented during the first part of nomination year (23 April 2012-October 2012);
*    A final report on the activities implemented during the whole nomination year (23 April 2012-22 April 2013);

3.    Systematically invite UNESCO and the three professional associations represented in the Selection Committee to all main events relating the World   Book Capital City programme;

4.    roduce and circulate information and communication tools on the City programme both in national and international languages.

Besides, the City authorities commit themselves to facilitate possible evaluation audits implemented on UNESCO's demand.

The Selection Committee - operating under the auspices of UNESCO - is made up of one representative of the International Publishers Association (IPA), one representative of the International Booksellers' Federation (IBF), one representative of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and one UNESCO representative, under the chairmanship of the President of IPA. The Committee's task is to choose a World Book Capital each year, in accordance with 31 C/Resolution 29, adopted by the UNESCO General Conference on 2 November 2001. The first World Book Capital chosen prior to the adoption of 31 C/Resolution 29 was Madrid, in 2001. Subsequent World Book Capital Cities have been Alexandria (2002), New Delhi (2003), and Antwerp (2004).  Montreal was the World Book Capital City in 2005, succeeded by Turin (2006), Bogotá (2007), Amsterdam (2008), Beirut (2009), Ljubljana (2010) and Buenos Aires (2011).

Each country will give an introductory chapter on the

followed by country-specific chapters. For the US, issues
will be covered such as a chapter on legal impacts on
libraries serving youth, a chapter on public libraries'
services to youth,a chapter on school library programs, a
chapter on staffing (preparation, CE, succession
