Greek bibliographic resources have generally been difficult to access in North America. The latest issue of the Gennadius Library's annual periodical presents revised versions of papers first given at a meeting held in December 2006 that explored the possibility of effective transnational cooperation between libraries in Greece and in North America. Five broad themes dominated the conference: collection development and acquisition; bibliographic control (including cataloguing, adherence to standards, transliteration issues, and Unicode); reformatting (i.e., microfilming and digitization); indexing the contents of periodicals; and resource sharing and document delivery. Titles in Greek are in modern Greek.

Exploring Context in Information Behavior - Seeker, Situation, Surroundings, and Shared identities (Paperback): Naresh Agarwal Exploring Context in Information Behavior - Seeker, Situation, Surroundings, and Shared identities (Paperback)
Naresh Agarwal; Series edited by Gary Marchionini
R1,489 Discovery Miles 14 890 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The field of human information behavior runs the gamut of processes from the realization of a need or gap in understanding, to the search for information from one or more sources to fill that gap, to the use of that information to complete a task at hand or to satisfy a curiosity, as well as other behaviors such as avoiding information or finding information serendipitously. Designers of mechanisms, tools and computer-based systems to facilitate this seeking and search process often lack a full knowledge of the context surrounding the search. This context may vary depending on the job or role of the person, individual characteristics such as personality, domain knowledge, age, gender, perception of self, etc., the task at hand, the source and the channel as well as their degree of accessibility and usability, and the relationship that the seeker shares with the source. Yet researchers still do not to agree on what context really means. While there have been various research studies incorporating context and biennial conferences on context in information behavior, there lacks a clear definition of what context is, what its boundaries are, and what elements and variables comprise context. This book looks at the many definitions and theoretical and empirical studies of context, and the author attempts to map the conceptual space of context in information behavior. The book proposes theoretical frameworks for mapping the boundaries, elements and variables of context. It further discusses how to incorporate these frameworks and variables in the design of research studies on context. The author then arrives at a unified definition of context. This book should provide a better understanding of context to designers of search systems as they seek to meet the needs and demands of information seekers. It will be an important resource for researchers in Library and Information Science, especially doctoral students looking for one resource that covers an exhaustive range of the most current literature related to context, the best selection of classics, and a synthesis of these into theoretical frameworks and a unified definition. The book should help to move forward research in the field by clarifying pertinent elements, variables, and views. In particular, the list of elements to be considered, and the variables associated with each element, will be extremely useful to researchers wanting to include the influences of context in their studies.

Sharing organizational knowledge supports onboarding, coaching, mentoring, and the day-to-day smooth functioning of the workplace. So why are the procedures, policies, and best practices for your organization often so hard to find? Although the term "knowledge management" might conjure up images of a bureaucratic labyrinth, essentially it means getting the right information to the right people at the right time. A lot of that information is embedded in work practices or may be siloed where it can't easily be shared; managing it successfully hinges on effective communication with every person on your team. This book surveys approaches to knowledge management (KM) that address hierarchical power structures and internal competition to get measurable results. With insights drawn from six case studies at academic and special libraries, in this book you'll find guidance on such topics as demystifying KM by reframing the concept to reflect organizational needs; the six elements of an actionable knowledge audit; how to harvest insights from staff at all levels of the organization; ten characteristics that define effective communities of practice; enabling KM through platforms like WordPress, Google Drive, and Dropbox or by adapting library tools like LibAnswers or ArchiveSpace; fostering knowledge sharing among liaison librarians; how interim administrators can develop a KM plan; sharing tacit knowledge with storytelling; and methods for securing knowledge before employee departure. Your library already contains organizational knowledge-both in your employees and in your institution; this book will lead you towards guiding, fostering, and organizing that knowledge for improved organizational fitness.

In a changing world, with multiple and often conflicting voices, the library's important role as a location of safety and inclusion as well as the crusader for knowledge cannot be overstated. It can be easy to reflect differing perspectives in our collections and displays, but if we do not practice our values, we are lacking. As leaders in our communities, librarians have an obligation to educate and inform; we must be ready to lead and model the principles we support. The question that arises for many is: how? As an integral part of the community, libraries need to move beyond diverse collection development and social issues displays. Here, experienced librarians offer suggestions, guidance and inspiration to motivate librarians at all levels to consider the assumptions we may take for granted, seek out new creative paths, and work to support change in our organizations. Be it steps to create a book group for the intellectually disabled, partnering with social workers or advocacy for employees with disabilities from within, included in these chapters are both theoretical foundation and hands on practical ideas.

Functioning as a thorough introduction to Zotero-from setting up to saving, organizing, and citing items, and ending with more advanced topics-as well as a guide to teaching Zotero, including case studies of researchers throughout the book, this is both a guide to the tool and a handbook for understanding how different groups use it. Zotero also looks at strategies for developing effective support structures and channels within an institution and building the right linkages between relevant players, in particular library support staff and IT. This second edition includes many more full-color figures, screenshots, and illustrations, revised bibliographies, substantial changes to the chapter on online tools, and the addition of a completely new chapter on add-ons and mobile applications. Zotero is a comprehensive guide for researchers who just need a how-to to help them make bibliographies; instruction librarians and teachers using Zotero in conjunction with classes doing research assignments; and reference librarians and tech support staff who are helping users with Zotero questions and problems.
