Article
The growing ubiquity of computer science and information technology across K–12, undergraduate, and graduate education is an example of the even more intensive transformation of professional graduate-level disciplines in which students and professionals alike are increasingly expected to possess not only IT skills but also foundational understandin...
Article
While it is common for communities to value their libraries and other information institutions, measuring both the overall value of an institution and the value of its specific information services can be difficult, particularly in a rapidly changing environment in which the relevance of these services and allocation of resources can change in very...
Article
Metadata is an important component of trans-disciplinary research and is increasingly important in digital scholarship in which linked, open and cloud-based communities operate. These communities regularly access and create linked, open and cloud-based data and as such require metadata systems and structures that fit their unique communities. The v...
Article
In 2010 and 2011 a number of libraries engaged in RDA testing in order to evaluate its readiness for adoption. Case studies from these testing experiences are now emerging in the literature and provide an interesting community-sourced view of the uses, impact and challenges associated not only with RDA but of the shift to new metadata models and sy...
Article
Metadata can be used in a variety of environments, from library catalogs and research databases to data archives, proprietary knowledge bases, and the open web. Multiple sources for metadata creation exist, with metadata being generated by professionals, through automated techniques, and by the public at large. Information professionals are eager t...
Article
This poster session reports the examination of user tasks in the context of domain specific vocabulary interoperability. Two vocabularies, Library of Congress Subject Headings and the Art and Architecture thesaurus, were selected for comparison using a single user task (Cross-vocabulary discovery). Analyzing the structure of the vocabularies in the...
Article
This paper explores the evaluation of metadata quality within the context of migration to new conceptual models. While metadata quality and interoperability are commonly studied areas, few studies have explored the issues introduced when migrating metadata to models that require a re-definition of metadata record to resource relationships. In order...
Article
In mid-April, Amazon EC2 services had a small problem. Apparently, a large swath of its cloud computing environment had such substantial trouble that a number of customers had server issues. A number of high-profile sites, including Reddit, Evite, and Foursquare, went down when Amazon experienced issues in their US East 1a region (Justinb 2011). My...
Article
This poster examines the outcomes of the application of FRBR algorithmic approaches for conversion of existing MARC datasets. The source data in this research includes the records from a medium sized academic library and consist of 1.6 Million records. The conversion is compared with other FRBR approaches. The authors utilized the OCLC FRBR work-se...
Article
This article presents a case study of the authors' experience using the POGIL method in an information literacy (IL) course. We describe our approach to using POGIL and discuss both the instructor and student observations about the experience. The article concludes with recommendations for future uses of POGIL in IL.
Article
This article presents an approach to teaching information literacy in an academic course from a socio-technical perspective. It includes an overview of the course framework, a review of course contents, and an analysis of student responses provided through pre- and post-course surveys. The premise of the course design was that students bring a set...
Article
The migration of information resources and library use from predominantly print/on-site use to electronic/online use has created a fragmented set of systems for libraries and users. In addition, the growing complications associated with doing research in libraries as compared to the ease of use of Web-based search engines is causing libraries to re...
Article
The provision of resource request and delivery services in libraries is being re-designed in response to a shift in patron needs and expectations. The design of these services needs to include definitions of patron needs/expectations, staffing and systems components, and local policies and capabilities. This article includes a review of literature...
