The Tumblarians, Tamarack Hockin 2016 San Jose State University

The Tumblarians, Tamarack Hockin

iSchool Student Research Journal

This paper examines the tumblarians as an information community and discusses community membership, information behaviours, and complementary models for a situated understanding of this unique personal-professional community. A review of the literature concerning LIS bloggers is presented as a complement to the tumblarians, who have no in depth treatment in the research as yet. Characteristics particular to the tumblarians are explored through informal conversation with a community member, and Fisher, Unruh, and Durrance's (2003) information communities model is employed to provide a deeper understanding of the information behaviour of the tumblarians. This paper offers suggestions for future research based ...


Research Trends & Emerging Technologies For Genealogists, Catherine Lucy 2016 San Jose State University

Research Trends & Emerging Technologies For Genealogists, Catherine Lucy

iSchool Student Research Journal

This study examines current research methods utilized by genealogists, and seeks to discover the impact of emerging tools and technologies on their information seeking needs and behaviors. When it became clear that there is a shortage of scholarly studies identifying the use of newer technologies (i.e. blogs, social media, and apps), an original survey for genealogists was created. Over four hundred genealogists were surveyed regarding their use of both traditional research methods (methods that have existed for many decades) and Internet/electronic resources, in order to demonstrate which new trends are emerging. The data from the survey might lessen ...

Information Behavior In The Mobile Environment: An Overview, Ziming Liu

iSchool Student Research Journal

As smartphones become ubiquitous, they increasingly influence the way in which students seek and use information. It is important to understand emerging information behavior as a result of wide spread use of smartphones. This paper provides an overview of information behavior in the mobile environment. Gender differences in mobile information seeking are discussed. People interact with mobile information in varied and unpredictable locations or while in transit. The mobility of information engagement is an important issue that human information theory should embrace.

New Directions In Faculty Work And The Key Role Of The Library, Promita Chatterji

Promita Chatterji

Digital scholarship is changing dramatically for faculty, and libraries are under pressure to understand and support their needs as they evolve. In addition to their formal publications, faculty are interested in sharing and managing a wide variety of materials, from datasets to images, audio, technical reports, course materials, syllabi, and more. By understanding the changing nature of faculty needs, libraries can play a key role in supporting this scholarship. In this presentation, Promita Chatterji of the bepress Outreach team discusses major trends in digital scholarship and present a variety of ways to support these new directions.

Purposeful Metrics: Matching Institutional Repository Metrics To Purpose And Audience, Todd Bruns, Harrison W. Inefuku 2016 Eastern Illinois University

Purposeful Metrics: Matching Institutional Repository Metrics To Purpose And Audience, Todd Bruns, Harrison W. Inefuku

Digital Repository Publications

A key tool to making institutional repositories work is the successful use of repository metrics. These metrics are generated through repository platforms and third party sources such as Google Analytics and Altmetrics, and are generated in-house by repository managers. The successful repository manager turns metrics into quality assessment tools, matching the metric source to the appropriate audience and purpose. Imaginative uses of metrics market the repository and stoke faculty participation. Providing meaningful metrics to repository stakeholders proves the value of institutional repositories to contributors and funding stakeholders. Purposeful metrics play a key role in establishing institutional repositories as an integral ...
