Open archive solutions to traditional archive/library cooperation  [cached]

Abstract: The diffusion of Internet is changing the role of archives and libraries and it is opening a wide range of new possibilities. The new vision is that in few years it will be possible to cross-access multiple libraries, archives, museums, and data repositories. The implementation of this revolutionary vision requires the solution of a number of technical, organizational, sociological, and economical issues. Recently, the proposal of a new, low cost technical solution for open repositories of pre-print material, the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting ( OAI-PMH), has greatly stimulated the discussion about these issues in many application frameworks. This paper overviews the status of this discussion in the library and conventional archives frameworks.
Is Open Source Right for your Library?
Carl Grant
Technology Innovation Management Review , 2008,
Abstract: We all know that feeling in our gut, that moment when it?s time to sign the order for a new software program for your library. It's accompanied by a host of nagging questions: "Is it the right decision?" "Have we overlooked anything?" "Will this work?" "Have we considered all our options?" The decision to acquire or upgrade a library automation package is never an easy one and every director, when faced with this decision, wants to choose the best package at the best value that most fully meets the needs of users. Today, that decision is complicated by a new option, that of open source. This article will examine when and why open source software (OSS) might be appropriate for your library. It also discusses why so many libraries are moving towards OSS and some of the disadvantages that you should be aware of should you decide to move in that direction.

Evaluation of Journals and Researchers in Library and Information Science: Perspectives from Citations by Taiwan LIS Scholars
Mu-Hsuan Huang
Journal of Library and Information Studies , 2008,
Abstract: This article uses bibliometric analysis to study the evaluation of journals and researchers in the field of library and information science in Taiwan. For journal evaluation, the results show no statistically significant difference between the rankings of the citations cited by top LIS journals and by THCI journals. This suggests that the citation numbers of top LIS journals can be used to evaluate all the LIS journals. The results also show that the relationship between the rankings of JCR LIS journals and the rankings of the JCR LIS journals cited by top LIS journals is not statistically significant.This indicates that the rankings of the JCR LIS journals can not totally show their impacts on Taiwan LIS journals. For researcher evaluation, the results reveal that the correlation between the rankings of researchers cited by top LIS journals and the number of the research projects of National Science Council (NSC) conducted by the researchers is not significant. This suggests using citation analyses as the only method to evaluate LIS researchers should be viewed with more prudence with the results. [Article content in Chinese]
The Open University Library in Your Pocket  [cached]

Journal of the Research Center for Educational Technology , 2010,
Abstract: The Open University library is working to support mobile learners through provision of mobile access to information management skills tutorials, the library website, and the library helpdesk. In 2007, we joined hands with the Athabasca University library team to develop the first mobile-friendly version of our library website. Since then, we have been actively researching and developing around other mobile library services, and more recently have consulted users to identify their requirements and what services they’d prefer to access through mobile phones. Recommendations from this user consultation (and from other sources, including regular users’ feedback and by tracking user behavior through Google Analytics) include revamping the mobile version of the Library website to offer only the most used services on the home page, implementing SMS (Short Messaging Service) such as loan reminders or library reference service, and developing a consolidated search to offer results from various sources including the library catalogue and e-journals collection.

The archive and library of the former Italian Central Office for Meteorology and Climatology

Advances in Science and Research (ASR) , 2012, DOI: 10.5194/asr-8-59-2012
Abstract: The Paper Archive and Library of CRA-CMA (Agricultural Research Council – Research Unit for Climatology and Meteorology applied to Agriculture) are an important source of meteorological data for climate research. CRA-CMA's Paper Archive gathers a collection of about 850 historical meteorological datasets. Among them, 40 are nowadays still in progress, 260 are more than thirty years long and 20 exceed one century. Moreover, the specialized Library of CRA-CMA gathers several publications containing meteorological data from many Italian and foreign observatories and an important collection of scientific journals and historical books on Atmospheric Sciences, Geophysics and Agrometeorology published both in Italy and abroad and dating from the second half of the sixteenth century. Even if input data for climate models are generally based on 30 yr long datasets, nevertheless longer observational series (up to 50 or 100 yr) are a key element to better understand the climate system behavior. Until today, the library described in this paper is a CRA-CMA heritage almost unknown to the international scientific community.
Now into big strides: report on statutory status for the South African Library and Information Services (LIS) sector

South African Journal of Libraries and Information Science , 2012, DOI: 10.7553/80-2-32
Abstract: The road to acquiring statutory status for the LIS sector has been traversed numerous times over the last sixty to seventy years. In more recent years, there has been renewed vigour to explore the acquisition of statutory status for the sector in South Africa. As part of this process of acquiring statutory status, a number of studies have been conducted. This paper examines the latest drive by Library and Information Association of South Africa (LIASA) to solicit the views of a cross section of LIS personnel with regard to the sector acquiring statutory status. This issue of the acquisition of statutory status is earmarked as a priority in the recently developed Strategic Directions 2010-2014 document of LIASA. At the 2009 LIASA Conference, a clear mandate was given for a national survey to be conducted to solicit the views of personnel that work in the LIS sector with regard to the said issue. The authors administered a short questionnaire to a sample population representing all categories of staff irrespective of whether they belonged to an association or not. The questionnaire was administered using Survey Monkey. This paper reports the results of that survey. Given the overwhelming support for the acquisition of statutory status, the authors examined significant elements that would be crafted into the governance structures of a statutory body for the sector.
