Indexing and abstracting in theory and practice by F. Wilfrid Lancaster( Book )

60 editions published between 1455 and 2015 in English and Romanian and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This third edition of what has become a classic among textbooks in schools of library and information science (and related programs) has been thoroughly updated to reflect the evolving technological advancements in the field. Focusing on indexing of the subject matter of material, the beginning chapters review the literature and discuss various principles and practices such as exhaustivity or depth of indexing, specificity, checktags, pre- and post-coordinate indexes, and consistency and quality of indexing. Discussions on abstracting cover such concepts as the different types of abstracts, purpose of an abstract, structured versus narrative abstracts, informative versus indicative abstracts, subject slanting, modular abstracts, and writing and evaluating an abstract. Various styles of indexing used in printed publications such as Index Medicus, the Engineering Index, and Chemical Abstracts are illustrated in the text; although the author is quick to note that printed tools are used much less today in favor of their online counterparts. In the online world, indexing has even greater importance in the effort to retrieve relevant data efficiently. Related concepts such as weighted indexing, linking of terms, and relational indicators are discussed as aids to precision. The idiosyncrasies of indexing special formats such as images and sounds and the Internet, as well as the use of computer-generated or automated indexing and abstracting, are also reviewed. The author admits that the Web has become so large and complex that it is beyond the scope of any single book to explain all of its components. He suggests the use of Web-based services such as The Extreme Web Searcher's Internet Handbook News and Updates <http://extremesearcher.com/news.html> or Search Engine Watch <http://searchenginewatch.com> to keep current with new developments

Problems and failures in library automation by Clinic on library applications of data processing( Book )

15 editions published between 1978 and 2008 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawn from the 15th Annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing, held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the nine papers presented in this volume deal with problems--or, in some cases, downright failures--in the automation of various facets of library service. They range from a general survey of failures or limitations in library automation as a whole, to case studies of failures or problems encountered in specific applications or environments. Titles include "What Hath Technology Wrought?", "Reactions to Failures in Library Automation," Problems of Government Bureaucracy When Contracting for Turnkey Computer Systems,""The Ups, Downs and Demise of a Library Circulation System,""So You Want to Build a Network,""Automation of the Catalog: The Transition from Cards to Computers,""Problems of Teaching Library Automation,""Problems of Library Automation in India," and "The Anatomy of Failure in Library Applications of Computer Technology." More abject failures are attributed to management ineptness and bureaucratic bungling than to inadequacies in existing technology. (Author/JD)
