Knowledge Organisation Systems As Tools For Enhanced Information Access And Retrieval: A Need For The Use Of Corporate Taxonomies On Library Portals., Dominic Aondohemba Ihongo, Helen Tor-Akwer, Ucham James Diyong

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Taxonomies have developed over the years to reach the current status of corporate taxonomies. A number of issues that triggered the prominence of taxonomies include; information overload, information literacy, organizational terminology and “destructuring” of organizations.This research contributes to the ongoing advocacy for the use of corporate taxonomies for effective knowledge organization and information retrieval in the digital community due to the explosion of various kinds of information on the internet, changes in user information seeking behaviour and needs, and the inability of search engines to precisely recall relevant information.

Keynote: Using Cultural Humility To Create And Sustain An Equitable, Welcoming Workplace, Twanna K. Hodge 2021 University of Florida

Keynote: Using Cultural Humility To Create And Sustain An Equitable, Welcoming Workplace, Twanna K. Hodge

TCLC Program Proceedings

Cultural humility urges us to engage in critical, consistent self-reflection and critique, being other-oriented, redressing power imbalances as vital to moving towards a more equitable and inclusive profession. Retention is not solely the responsibility of the individual, nor is mentoring going to singlehandedly aid in retention. Retention involves, strategic, intentional, and communal actions. It is active, not passive.

In this presentation, Twanna Hodge will provide an overview of cultural humility, explain its importance in librarianship, provide elements of a cultural humility framework, share retention strategies, and offer how cultural humility can be used as a retention strategy.

On the other hand, online toxicity is multi-dimensional and sensitive in nature, which makes its detection challenging. As the impact of exposure to online toxicity can lead to serious implications for individuals and communities, reliable models and algorithms are required for detecting and understanding such communications.
