Organising knowledge in a global society : principles and practice in libraries and information centres by D. R Harvey( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 220 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
Australian library supervision and management by Roy Sanders( Book )
3 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Collection management : a concise introduction by John Kennedy( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The rapidly increasing reliance on digital rather than print-based resources has not diminished the importance of library collection management, but it has required significant modification in the thinking and the practice of collection managers, who today usually have to consider their clients' need for both print-based and digital materials. This updated edition aims to provide a concise overview of the major elements of contemporary collection management of print and digital resources - including policy formulation, selection, acquisition, evaluation, preservation, deselection, and cooperative collecting - in a way which aims to be of interest to the student and to any other reader seeking an understanding of a particularly dynamic area of librarianship. Much that has been previously published on collection management focuses on academic libraries, particularly those in North America. This book places greater emphasis on the experiences of smaller public and special libraries, and attempts to view its subject from the perspective of libraries in Australia and other countries geographically remote from North America and Western Europe. Dr John Kennedy has taught collection management at Charles Sturt University for over a decade and has produced several previous publications on the subject

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 inform

Libraries in the twenty-first century : charting new directions in information services by Stuart J Ferguson( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Libraries in the Twenty-First Century brings together 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. Aimed at practitioners and students alike, this publication 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
Computers for librarians : an introduction to the electronic library by Stuart J Ferguson( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Computers for Librarians is aimed primarily at students of library and information management and at those library and information service professionals who feel the need for a book that will give them a broad overview of the emerging electronic library. It takes a top-down approach, starting with applications such as the Internet, information sources and services, provision of access to information resources and library management systems, before looking at data management, computer systems and technology, data communications and networking, and library systems development. It also provides an interesting set of case studies, which help to put theoretical and technical issues into context. Computers for Librarians can be read as a survey of where we are in terms of the electronic library, but it is also intended as an educational resource, and includes self-learning aids such as learning objectives, keywords and review questions for each chapter
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 102 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

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

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 by Kerry Mallan( )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 64 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
