Library 2020 : today's leading visionaries describe tomorrow's library by Joseph Janes( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thinking about the future of libraries, librarianship and the work librarians do is as old as libraries themselves. (No doubt seminars were organized by the Alexandria Librarians Association on the future of the scroll and what to do about the rising barbarian tide.) At no time in our memory, though, have these discussions and conversations been so profound and critical. Here one of today's leading thinkers and speakers about the future of libraries brings together 30 leaders from all types of libraries and from outside librarianship to describe their vision of what the library will be in 2020. Contributors including Stephen Abram, Susan Hildreth, Marie Radford, Clifford Lynch, and Library Journal's The Annoyed Librarian were asked to describe the "library of 2020, "in whatever terms they wanted, either a specific library or situation or libraries in general. They were told: "be bold, be inspirational, be hopeful, be true, be provocative, be realistic, be depressing, be light-hearted, be thoughtful, be fun, be yourself, and for heaven's sake, don't be boring. "Not that they could be. Broadly representative of important perspectives and aspects within the profession as well as featuring important voices beyond the professional realm, Library 2020 presents thought-provoking and illuminating visions from many points of view. It is both required reading for library leaders and trustees as well as an ideal supplemental text for LIS classes looking at the future of the profession
Introduction to reference work in the digital age by Joseph Janes( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many librarians, the meaning of the word -reference- is changing so rapidly that it is unsettling. Joe Janes, founder of the Internet Public Library, provides this perfect mix of provocative arguments and useful, hands-on advice. He addresses important questions including: what is the optimal mix of desk/phone/email/chat? What kind of resource for what kind of user? What software for what purpose? What values to hold on to and what habits to break? Loaded with salient considerations, pointers, and encouragement, this book will have at the library world talking on a subject we urgently need to address
Online retrieval : a dialogue of theory and practice by Geraldene Walker( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walker (SUNY-Albany) and Janes (Univ. of Michigan) have sensibly chosen one widely used online retrieval system, DIALOG, to illustrate their discussion of the principles and techniques of online searching. The reader who closely examines the numerous reproductions of DIALOG printouts will have a strong conceptual foundation on which to build real searching experience. The only obvious limitation is, of course, that not all searchers use DIALOG, but the authors have largely done a good job of generalizing their lessons. The major portion of Online Retrieval consists of a comprehensive treatment of hands-on searching techniques with attention given to Boolean logic, controlled vocabulary and free-text searching, display formats, and ways to minimize expense of time and money. Additional topics include the reference interview, evaluation of search results, and establishing and managing an institutional search service. One chapter briefly describes Internet. A few oversights slightly weaken the value of the text, e.g., typographical errors in the DIALOG examples might confuse readers, and references to DIALOG bluesheets occur prior to Chapter 10 where they are more fully described. Overall, however, this book is recommended, particularly to students who would benefit additionally from an experienced instructor's elaboration and clarification of the text

The internet compendium : subject guides to social sciences, business, and law resources by Louis Rosenfeld( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The process of Internet resource discovery and evaluation is extremely difficult due to low quality of information, constant changes, and primitive searching tools. The subject-oriented resource guides presented in this book make independent resource discovery and evaluation possible, and serve as reference sources to enable users to maximize use of the Internet and its information. Instead of providing long and general lists of all known Gophers, Usenet newsgroups, or World Wide Web servers like many other books do, this guide describes and evaluates the Internet's resources by subject, so readers with a specific area of interest will find relevant Internet resources assembled in a single, easy-to-use chapter. Parts I and ii offer instruction in various Internet skills: Internet addresses; clients and servers; navigating tools and resources; communicating with individuals and groups; searching for files to ftp (Archie); searching for Gopher resources (Veronica); Wide Area Information Servers (wais); building your own subject-oriented guide; and the Clearinghouse for Subject-Oriented Internet Resource Guides. Part iii provides 18 subject-specific guides in various topics in business and the social sciences such as: archaeology, German history, Latin American studies, law, operations research, and women's studies.

Library and information science: an evolving profession: This chapter reviews the evolution and development of the profession. The contemporary American library and information professional is a product of more than a hundred years of growth and change. The current role of LIS professionals and the professional tensions that they experience are best understood when placed in the context of the historical development of library and information science education and the profession. Current issues are also addressed including the nature of the LIS labor force, gender and minority representation, and recruitment; 6. The organization of knowledge: This chapter discusses the organizational systems that make knowledge, in all its myriad forms, available. In spite of the vast quantities of disparate materials, our classification systems, subject headings, thesauri, databases, and powerful catalogs have enabled LIS professionals to offer effective service for many years. The chapter also addresses the impact of the dramatic increases in digital content and the evolution of the traditional catalog to the "Next Generation Catalog"; 7. Information science: a service perspective: This chapter focuses on the nature of information science as a field of study, calling special attention to those aspects of the discipline that inform the work of LIS professionals.; 8.

Government, business, industry, public institutions, LIS professionals, and citizens all are stakeholders in trying to shape how information will be disseminated and who will disseminate it; 9. Intellectual freedom: This chapter focuses on libraries. Intellectual Freedom is a central value of librarianship and this chapter examines the key policies that affect equitable and open access to knowledge resources. The factors that promote or discourage censorship are addressed; 10.
