Library technical services in the age of computers : a brief overview of library literature discussing the conceptual impact of automation on library operations by Joseph Z Nitecki( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In times when the total volume of information is proliferating and information users are demanding greater access and faster response, the librarian is likely to turn to the computer for assistance. Modern computers can provide fast, accurate operations with an enormous capacity for bibliographic data, and they can be accessed through on-line, time-sharing terminals. Using binary logic to code bibliographic data, new computer languages can facilitate swift manipulation of data and rapid retrieval. Cataloging and indexing can also be automated. In the future computers will be able to provide continuous monitoring of all bibliographic data provided that library technicians and library users can be kept informed of the continuing advances in technology.

On the Modality of Discourse in the Theory of Librarianship by Joseph Z Nitecki( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essay identifies and reviews the major and easily recognizable characteristics of a library discourse and proposes models describing the actual, possible, and necessary modes of library communication. The transmittal of orderly thoughts or information in a library situation differs from a conventional communication pattern. Three unique phases can be distinguished in the library's communication, roughly corresponding to the traditional classification of logical propositions and their basic assertions: (1) the procedural or actual; (2) the contextual or possible; and (3) the conceptual or necessary conditions of any library discourse. The resulting three-fold modality of a library discourse interrelates the physical and objective reality of the message communicated through its carrier, with the conceptual and subjective reality as it is perceived by the recipient of that message.

Temple University Libraries in the mid-seventies : a status report by Joseph Z Nitecki( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Present central library operations are discussed in terms of emerging needs and possible direction for future development. Library objectives include acquiring and organizing relevant records of knowledge, and providing satisfactory information service standards. Issues relating to objectives include the library's involvement in planning and developing educational programs, support of programs offered, and a well selected professional staff, strong in subjects relevant to library coverage and involved in continuing education. Library organization and structure are concerned with the centralization of library services within the university, and the functional arrangement of activities within the library. At present, Temple's library structure is a combination of centralized and decentralized services. Issues involving personnel are consultative management, professional self-governance, unionization, and affirmative action policies. The library's budget recommendations are based on a balanced budget principle, and library department heads' participation. Collection development is based on stimulus response buying and a system approach. Gradual computerization is taking place with a fully automated circulation system, oclc, microforms, and semi-automated interlibrary loan. Future issues include cooperation and networking within the profession; cooperation and coordination within the University; and structural reorganization, development of long-range personnel programs, continuing automation, and additional library space.

Philosophical Aspects of Library Information Science in Retrospect. Preliminary Edition by Joseph Z Nitecki( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study is a sequel to "Metalibrarianship." The previous work formulated a specific model for the philosophical interpretation of librarianship, and the present essay provides a wide-ranging reference to different views on the philosophy of librarianship. The review of philosophical viewpoints about library information science (lis) is provided in two parts: samples of contributions to the intellectual foundations of library and information science are analyzed in part I, and then they are abstracted in part ii. Selection of entries is based on their relevance to the theme of this study, and by the appearance of the works in "Library Literature" under the heading "Librarianship--Philosophical Aspects." Some entries are exceptionally long because their authors either: (1) are not well known to the general readership in philosophy of librarianship; (2) developed their own philosophical viewpoints; or (3) participated in a long dialogue about the philosophical subject. Only a few of the essays analyzed offer developed philosophical models of librarianship, since at present the philosophy of librarianship has many missing pieces. Most essays provide insights to only some aspects of lis or restate this insight in a nonphilosophical mode. This compilation is by no means complete, and is offered as a preliminary draft to the students of librarianship to build on, by expanding past and present contributions, adding syntheses of new ideas into the nature of recorded data, information or knowledge, and by elucidating new roles of the profession. Three appendices constitute part iii: philosophers cited in the compendium (part ii), references to selected names cited in the compendium, and a 103-page bibliography. (Mas)
Selected Thematic Priorities in American Graduate Introductory Courses to Library and Information Science by Joseph Z Nitecki( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A two-part questionnaire was mailed early in 1990 to all graduate schools of library and information science accredited by the American Library Association to solicit their views on the impact of the changing information environment on the content of introductory courses in the field. The first part focused on the administrative aspects of the introductory courses, and the second requested each respondent to prioritize a number of topics in a hypothetical syllabus for such a course on a four-part scale. This report is based on responses from the faculty responsible for introductory courses in 34 (56.6%) of the graduate library schools, all of which offered an introductory course. It was found that the course was required by all of these institutions, the lecture format was the most popular teaching method, and the focus of most programs was theoretical. Clear consensus was not found on the course content; in fact, the study provided some evidence of overall weak agreement among the profession's faculty. The overall concept of the profession emerged as a social institution concerned about its professional status and focusing primarily on issues of intellectual freedom, censorship, communication, and information policy. The predominant themes of the course were the philosophy, theory, and historical background of the discipline. This study seems to reinforce the perception of librarianship and information science as a discipline in transition. Seven appendixes include the survey questionnaire, a summary of responses from U.S. and Canadian libraries, and details of the analysis. (11 references) (bbm)
