Organising knowledge in a global society : principles and practice in libraries and information centres by D. R Harvey( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book updates 'Organising Knowledge in Australia' by Ross Harvey, which has proved to be a successful introduction to bibliographical organisation in libraries, both in Australia and overseas. Reviewers and students have attested to the clarity of presentation of complex ideas in a simple and accessible manner. 'Organising Knowledge in a Global Society' strives to maintain these characteristics whilst incorporating recent changes in a field which is currently undergoing significant levels of revision as libraries embrace digital resources and alter their practice in consequence. This new work reflects these current practices, and describes the directions the field is likely to take in the future, by paying particular attention to how libraries and information services provide intellectual access to digital information resources through metadata. Metadata concepts and examples are incorporated throughout the text."--Publisher's website

Research methods for students, academics and professionals : information management and systems by Kirsty Williamson( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research is such an important subject for information professionals that there will always be a need for effective guides to it. Research skills are a prerequisite for those who want to work successfully in information environments, an essential set of tools which enable information workers to become information professionals. This book focuses on producing critical consumers of research. It also goes some way towards producing researchers in the fields of information management and systems. The first edition of this book was enthusiastically received by researchers, students and information professionals in Australia and beyond. Reviews of the first edition considered it a "a worthwhile addition to any information professional's or research student's reference shelfi (Archives & Manuscripts). This new edition has an additional chapter on ethics, to address the importance of the ethical implications of research. It also has (as did the first edition) two unique characteristics: it is Australian-focused, distinctive among research texts for information professionals; and it has a multi-disciplinary focus, with its authors being drawn from information management (librarianship, archives and recordkeeping) and information systems. The numerous examples throughout the book are drawn from these multiple disciplines. The first edition of this book was road-tested with students from several disciplines who are studying in several universities. Its Introduction noted that "In research terms, the content have been refereed and found to be authoritative!" To this can be added the many satisfied users of the first edition
Australian children's literature : an exploration of genre and theme by John Foster( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors aim in this book is to present an approach by genre, especially, and theme, so that a comparatively small number of works are analyzed and placed into a wider literary, social and historical context. In this way, the general reader will gain an understanding of Australian children's literature from its earliest roots to the most recent titles, while the student is given detailed discussion of key works in the field, thus leading to both an overview of the field and an insight into individual tiles within it

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Libraries in the twenty-first century : charting new directions in information services by Stuart Ferguson( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Libraries in the Twenty-first Century brings together leading library educators and practitioners to provide a scholarly yet accessible overview of library and information management and the challenges that the twenty-first century offers the information profession. The papers in this collection illustrate the changing nature of the library as it evolves into its twenty-first century manifestation. The national libraries of Australia and New Zealand, for instance, have harnessed information and communication technologies to create institutions that are far more national, even democratic, in terms of delivery of service and sheer presence than their print-based predecessors. The book covers specific types of library and information agencies, discusses specific aspects of library and information management and places developments in library and information services in a number of broad contexts: socio-economic, ethico-legal, historical and educational.

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The adolescent novel : Australian perspectives by Maureen Nimon( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a pioneering study of the modern Australian novel: defining the genre; tracing its development; explaining some of its principal features; discussing the characteristics of adolescent novels written in the past three decades; and exploring ways in which Australian adolescent novels may be seen to offer something different from works published elsewhere, to be specifically 'Australian'. Part 2 comprises essays on fifteen authors, all of whom are indisputably important in the development of the Australian adolescent novel. This book will be of interest to teacher librarians, tertiary students, teachers and senior students in high schools, children's/youth librarians, parents and all those who are interested in contemporary writing for young Australians

Bush, city, cyberspace : the development of Australian children's literature into the twenty-first century by John Foster( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aimed at academic, professional and general readers, Bush, city, cyberspace provides a snapshot of the state of Australian children's and adolescent literature in the early twenty-first century, and an insight into its history. In doing so, it promotes a sense of where Australian literature for young people may be going and captures a literary and critical mood with which readers in Australia and beyond will identify. The title of the work is intended to capture the fact that the field has changed dramatically in the century and a half that 'Australian children's literature' has existed, from the bush myths and heroism that inform the past and the present, through the recognition that the vast majority of authors and readers live in cities, to the third wave of 'cyberliterature' that incorporates multimedia, hypertext, weblinks and e-books - none of which lessens the enduring enthusiasm of practitioners and readers for books. Bush, city, cyberspace is not meant to be an encyclopedic volume. Rather, well-known, recent and/or award-winning works have been emphasised, with the addition of others where these help to illuminate particular points. The book is similar in coverage and approach to Australian Children's Literature: An Exploration of Genre and Theme, written by the same three authors and published by the Centre for Information Studies in 1995. In the intervening period, much has changed in the field, notable examples including the blurring of the dividing line between 'quality' and 'popular' literature; the blending of genres; the rise of a truly indigenous literature; the demise, to a significant extent, of 'Outbackery' in fiction; the acceptance of multiculturalism as the norm; and the advent of the literature of cyberspace, with new methods, and the sheer speed, of communication between writer and reader. All these trends, and others, are reflected in this work

Practising information literacy : bringing theories of learning, practice and information literacy together by Annemaree Lloyd( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book showcases new interdisciplinary academic research on the relationship between information literacy and learning. It combines findings with new understandings drawn from theoretical and empirical research conducted in primary and secondary schools, higher education, workplaces, and community contexts. The studies offer new insights into questions such as how transferable are the information practices and skills learned in one context to other contexts? What is the degree to which information competences are generic, to what degree are they domain and context specific? What are the kin
Performing hybridity : impact of new technologies on the role of teacher-librarians ; a report of research conducted under a QUT Scholarship in the Professions grant( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication was the outcome of a research project undertaken by a team of researchers from Queensland University of Technology and Brisbane Catholic Education Office throughout 1999-2000. The report was originally distributed to a limited number of participants and others considered stakeholders in the fields of education and teacher-librarianship. The publication of the report reflects the interest shown in the project around Australia. The research focused on the impact of new technologies on the day-to-day lives of teacher-librarians, and revealed information that has significant relevance for the training, professional development and infrastructure support for teacher-librarianship. This research is significant as it provides a sound and scholarly approach to the research topic and provides the field and others associated with schooling and teacher-librarianship with documented accounts of the contributions of teacher-librarians, the obstacles they face, and the way technology is affecting their personal and professional lives. Performing Hybridity would be of interest to the teacher-librarianship and general education community. The results of the research are not state or site specific and are applicable to other states in Australia. It is important for administrators and policy makers in state, catholic and independent systems as an information source for staff planning and development, and resourcing. The publication also has value for tertiary institutions offering courses in teacher-librarianship and more general librarianship programs
