The advent of globally networked information is a historic change and educational, commercial and industrial institutions depend on its effective exploitation for success. This book looks at the cultural and human factors which are often the biggest obstacles and at how they may be overcome, through understanding recent developments in technical services, the difference between service and technical orientation, organizational culture, the role of subject expertise and the cultural heritage of the information profession. The book provides guidance, tools and outlines of best practice in areas such as: managing converging technologies; supporting change with organizational models; using cultural audits; the role of focus groups in implementing change; characterizing a learning organization; succeeding as a change agent; and managing change through technical services.

Some libraries have become community gateways to the world of the Internet. Here are 18 reports on how they did it and what is happening now. They aim to show you how to become a player in the local information community, linking patrons to Net services with enhancements that only librarians can offer. This text deals with organisation, governance and use of Internet services in all types and sizes of library agencies, from Stanford University's immense electronic matrix to one-telephone libraries in rural New York State. Reports are illustrated and include hardware, software, and connectivity data as well as managerial, financial, social, legal and personnel issues. In two surrounding essays the authors establish the context of these services and the opportunites they present for the librarians. The reports draw from experiences in every region of the country, representing state educational agencies and public, academic and special libraries. The contributor's postal and electronic addresses are provided for follow-up contacts.

  • Chapter 8.Into the Future Boldly: The Imperative for Cultural Synergy.
Cultural forces govern a synergistic relationship among information institutions that shapes their roles collectively and individually. Cultural synergy is the combination of perception- and behavior-shaping knowledge within, between, and among groups. Our hyperlinked era makes information-sharing among institutions critically important for scholarship as well as for the advancement of humankind. Information institutions are those that have, or share in, the mission to preserve, conserve, and disseminate information objects and their informative content. A central idea is the notion of social epistemology that information institutions arise culturally from social forces of the cultures they inhabit, and that their purpose is to disseminate that culture. All information institutions are alike in critical ways. Intersecting lines of cultural mission are trajectories for synergy for allowing us to perceive the universe of information institutions as interconnected and evolving and moving forward in distinct ways for the improvement of the condition of humankind through the building up of its knowledge base and of its information-sharing processes. This book is an exploration of the cultural synergy that can be realized by seeing commonalities among information institutions (sometimes also called cultural heritage institutions): museums, libraries, and archives. The hyperlinked era of the Semantic Web makes information sharing among institutions critically important for scholarship as well as the advancement of mankind. The book addresses the origins of cultural information institutions, the history of the professions that run them, and the social imperative of information organization as a catalyst for semantic synergy.

This volume is unusual in that the theme is quite broad in scope yet focused on a specific topic; innovations and boundary-pushing studies in areas not usually found in library literature. It represents a look at the periphery of the field surveyed in previous volumes and presents chapters grouped into two categories: professional issues and transforming services. First section chapters include the challenges facing librarians in an age of litigiousness and threats to academic freedom, educating ethical leaders for the information society by adopting practices from business, valuing intellectual capital assets by looking at the role of librarians in a knowledge society, and emerging practices of open peer review as a means of achieving a "new science". In the second section chapters include the effects of terminology on health queries by analysing users' health literacy and topic familiarity, an analysis of academic social networking via a case study of users' information behaviour, a study on redefining services and spaces for graduate student success by creating a "scholars' commons", and a final chapter on serving adults and teens in social spaces within a "virtual branch".

  • Le projet de médiation numérique et la mise en place de services numériques -- De médiateur numérique à architecte de l'information.
"Avec la technologie numérique, le rôle traditionnel des bibliothécaires et documentalistes inclut aujourd'hui la médiation numérique. Le besoin est grandissant de construire un lien entre des outils et des dispositifs techniques d'une part, et les publics d'autre part. Le contexte général de la médiation en bibliothèque est exposé dans cet ouvrage. Celle-ci peut être culturelle, sociale, pédagogique... Le livre présente ce qu'est la médiation numérique dans toutes ses dimensions et quelles peuvent en être les applications dans les métiers de l'information. Les missions des bibliothèques évoluent, car le monde change sous l'influence des nouveaux outils technologiques et de leurs usages sociaux. Les usagers se voient offrir toute l'information à portée de clic, mais ils sont aussi confrontés à de nouvelles difficultés. L'information surabondante exige d'eux une capacité à sélectionner dans ce trop plein. La création permanente de nouveaux outils de recherche et d'échange demande à leurs utilisateurs de nouvelles compétences. Les bibliothécaires doivent assurer leur présence sur ces réseaux sociaux, présence répondant à la politique générale de la bibliothèque. À cette fin, ils doivent définir un projet, mettre en place un business plan, adopter une démarche marketing. Ce livre veut aider les bibliothèques et services documentaires à élaborer une, politique de services dont la médiation numérique devient un des aspects essentiels. A cette fin, ils doivent aussi positionner la bibliothèque en tant que "marque", avec logo et slogan. Le besoin de médiation numérique est bien réel, et l'ouvrage propose un plan de développement pour la mise en place de services numériques performants. Un nouveau professionnel se dessine, l'architecte de l'information."--Page 4 of cover.

The protection and security of cultural properties is of primary concern to the thousands of federal, state, county, city, and private institutions entrusted with housing and displaying our national heritage and history of our society. Cultural property security is of global importance as well, with tens of thousands of institutions internationally tasked with protecting and maintaining relics and artifacts of social, cultural, and historical significance. Cultural Property Security offers powerful protection guidelines to security departments tasked with safeguarding popular historical sites, museums, and libraries and the historical artifacts they house. Presenting practical, ready-to-implement solutions in a clear writing style, the book: * Provides a working definition of cultural properties * Identifies the threats against cultural properties from crime and terrorism, particularly in regions with political or civil unrest * Offers guidance in threat assessment * Identifies the physical security measures and technology that can be used to protect such institutions * Presents guidelines for establishing a protective service department for cultural properties * Describes proper arrest and post-arrest protocols * Includes a list of online resources for further information related to the protection of cultural properties Complete with dozens of photos, the book establishes leading industry best practices to identify the various threats to cultural properties and protect them. Dr. Daniel J. Benny has more than 35 years of security management experience and has served as a Director of Protective Services for the state of Pennsylvania's Historic and Museum Commission. His insight is invaluable to those responsible for securing these institutions from internal and external threats.

Fundraising: How to Raise Money for Your Library Using Social Media introduces the phenomena that many members, supporters and fundraisers are not using social media to fundraise for their libraries, and may not be aware of its strengths and pitfalls. The book discusses why social media should be used to fundraise and how to successfully employ social media campaigns, also providing examples from library funding initiatives that libraries can follow. Since social media changes relatively quickly, library staff members, supporters and fundraisers need up-to-date information on how to craft messages for the platforms that they use. This book presents less on best practices for specific social media platform, focusing more on library social media fundraising strategies that have been found to be effective (for example, how libraries have successfully created fundraising campaigns with hashtags).

Inherent Strategies in Library Management describes general and specific strategies for libraries based on core library values, and does so through concrete research. Many strategic management books for libraries introduce concepts of business management to the library world, but often neglect traditional library culture and core values. This book reexamines management through the lens of libraries themselves, rather than relying on strategies borrowed from the business world, in an attempt to bring to light the factors and decision-making processes behind how librarians have run their libraries over the past fifty decades. In other words, their decisions can be regarded as inherent management, born naturally from the core foundations, considerations, and operations of libraries. In addition, this book investigates the broad influences of business management theories on libraries, including a discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of their use.
