Investigating The Integration Of Icts In Library And Information Science (Lis) Curriculum In Zimbabwe, Tinashe Mugwisi, Tinashe Mugwisi

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have greatly influenced access, management and dissemination of information. ICTs have become central to education and training in Library and Information Science/Service (LIS) because of the great influence of these technologies on the professional world. Information professionals are increasingly required to adapt their skills and practice in order to gain an awareness of technological advances. It has changed their role in the workplace with new and diverse skills requirements. The purpose of this study was to examine how Library and Information Science (LIS) schools are integrating ICTs in their curriculum. The study was largely qualitative …

Web archive collections are created with a particular purpose in mind. A curator selects seeds, or original resources, which are then captured by an archiving system and stored as archived web pages, or mementos. The systems that build web archive collections are often configured to revisit the same original resource multiple times. This is incredibly useful for understanding an unfolding news story or the evolution of an organization. Unfortunately, over time, some of these original resources can go off-topic and no longer suit the purpose for which the collection was originally created. They can go off-topic due to web site …


Library And Information Science Research In Asia Region: A Bibliometric Perspective, Suwarno Suwarno Jan 2022

Library And Information Science Research In Asia Region: A Bibliometric Perspective, Suwarno Suwarno

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

It is expected that the usage of LIS in research papers will continue to expand in the coming years. This expansion may be seen throughout a wide range of scientific disciplines as well. This study conducts a bibliometric analysis of 1,127 papers on the use of LIS research, which were published in 206 scientific publications and authored by 1,685 authors (245 single-authored documents and 1,440 multi-authored documents). The purpose of this investigation is to determine which issue in LIS is currently trending. To analyze the data, we extracted it from the Scopus database and ran it using R software's Bibliometrix …

Why Lis Is Interdisciplinary In Nature? Finding Root From A Fundamental Base Of The Subject, Debabrata Maity, Bidyarthi Dutta Jan 2020

Why Lis Is Interdisciplinary In Nature? Finding Root From A Fundamental Base Of The Subject, Debabrata Maity, Bidyarthi Dutta

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Library and information science (LIS) is evolved due to the merging and integration of two separate fields i.e., library science and information science. Interdisciplinary nature of LIS according to the identification of some scholars has been highlighted and also meaning and characteristics of interdisciplinary study has been pointed out here shortly. Brief descriptions have made about the concept of category or category analysis—a vital fundamental base of LIS field and interdisciplinary nature of the field has been interpreted here with the inherent interdisciplinary nature of category.


Research Participation And Employment For Autistic Individuals In Library And Information Science: A Review Of The Literature, Nancy Everhart, Amelia M. Anderson Jan 2020

Research Participation And Employment For Autistic Individuals In Library And Information Science: A Review Of The Literature, Nancy Everhart, Amelia M. Anderson

STEMPS Faculty Publications

Autism prevalence is growing, and autistic people themselves are important in the library and information science field, both as library patrons and employees. Including them in all stages of research about the neurodivergent experience is valuable, and their input and participation is increasingly used in technology research, particularly usability studies. Neurodivergent persons also have unique abilities that align with a wide array of information professions and accommodations can be made that allow them to thrive in the workplace. It is critical that meaningful involvement of autistic individuals is a component of making policy at all levels.


Cyberbullying, Digital Citizenship, And Youth With Autism: Lis Education As A Piece In The Puzzle, Abigail Phillips, Amelia Anderson Jan 2020

Cyberbullying, Digital Citizenship, And Youth With Autism: Lis Education As A Piece In The Puzzle, Abigail Phillips, Amelia Anderson

STEMPS Faculty Publications

Librarians are beginning to address the lack of services for youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by providing flexible and tailored programming and services. One important need among youth with ASD is a better understanding of how to navigate the online environment safely and responsibly. Given different engagement styles with social interaction and communication, youth with ASD may be more susceptible to cyberbullying and misinterpretations during online communications than their peers. This study investigates whether librarians can (or should) play a role in digital citizenship education for youth with ASD and provides suggestions for LIS educators preparing future librarians on …

Boundary Objects In Information Science, Isto Huvila, Theresa Dirndorfer Anderson, Eva Jansen, Pam Mckenzie, Adam Worrall

FIMS Publications

(Accepted for publication; final date unknown at present.) Boundary objects are abstract or physical artefacts that exist in the liminal spaces between adjacent communities of people. The theory of BOs was originally introduced by Star and Griesemer in a study on information practices at the Berkeley Museum of Vertebrate Zoology but has since been adapted in a broad range of research contexts in a large number of disciplines including the various branches of information science. The aim of this review article is to present an overview of the state of the art of information science research informed by the theory …

Gender Stereotypes Male Librarians Face Today, Heidi Blackburn Sep 2015

Gender Stereotypes Male Librarians Face Today, Heidi Blackburn

Criss Library Faculty Publications

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (USBLS) (2012), the library profession has seen a 48% (19,458) increase in males working in libraries since 1980 and the male influx is expected to increase (Minnesota, 2011) despite lingering professional stereotypes. Movies, books, and other popular media focus on the overall image of the librarian, as if only one type exists for both sexes (Duke, 1999; Garcia, 2011). These stereotypes may be misinterpreted on the faulty premise that men confront the same stereotypes in the library workplace as women. Social roles and norms are different for men and women and …


The Importance Of Data, Information, And Knowledge In Scholarly Communication, Carol Tenopir Jan 2014

The Importance Of Data, Information, And Knowledge In Scholarly Communication, Carol Tenopir

DataONE Sociocultural and Usability & Assessment Working Groups

Research in scholarly communication, including the role and importance of data and publications, can reveal important insights into how knowledge is formed and transmitted. These insights can be interesting in and of themselves, as answers to fundamental research questions such as how formal communication helps science progress, and they also can help librarians and publishers and researchers create better information systems. This paper is about the intersection of these concepts in the study of scholarly communication with examples from my own research and the work of others that inspired me in formal scholarly publication.
