The University of Tennessee's School of Information Sciences (SIS) announces the launch of a new website for the La SCALA program.  The website offers detailed information about the program and how students can apply for the funding.

"The new website, http://lascala.sis.utk.edu, is an important next step for the program.  This tool will assist in the very important task of providing information to prospective doctoral students," said Dr. Ed Cortez, Professor and Director of SIS.

La SCALA is an acronym for Latino Scholars Cambio Leadership Academy.  The grant is a collaborative program between the University of Tennessee and the University of Arizona.  The grant is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

UBC Welcomes Melanie Feinberg on Personal Digital Collections

The School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, the iSchool at University of British Columbia, is pleased to welcome Dr. Melanie Feinberg of the University of Texas at Austin as the next speaker in our 2012-13 Colloquium Series. She is speaking Wednesday, October 17, from 12 noon to 1 p.m., on the topic of "Personal Digital Collections as Creative Expression."
Dr. Feinberg will describe her continuing project to examine how personal digital collections, such as Pinterest boards, Amazon wishlists, and GoodReads shelves, work as manifestations of creative curatorship, and how best to support the design of such expressive personal collections. Initial work took a humanities-oriented approach to propose a set of expressive characteristics--an eclectic purpose, a unique authorial voice, and emotional intimacy--that enable personal digital collections to achieve what Umberto Eco describes as "the poetry of lists." A subsequent user study suggested that the design space of personal digital collections includes multiple document genres that make use of the same form: collections that serve as personal information management tools, for example, coexist in the same systems with collections oriented toward public expression in the same environment. A second user study illuminated the notion of framing devices in facilitating a design reorientation to the genre of public expression, as opposed to personal information management. These findings contribute to our understanding of personal digital collections as expressive media and to the design of authoring environments for expression-oriented collections.

Melanie Feinberg is an assistant professor at the School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research considers collections as a form of creative expression, and the means by which collections apply an interpretive frame to the resources that they gather, enacting a particular viewpoint onto their contents. She received her PhD from the University of Washington, a MIMS from the University of California at Berkeley, and a BA from Stanford University.

The talk will be given in the Dodson Room, in the Chapman Learning Commons of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at UBC.

Virtual Information Session for PhD at UBC
We are hosting a Virtual Information Session for the Doctor of Philosophy program in library, archival and information studies at The University of British Columbia next Friday, October 19. This will be held from 1-2:15 p.m. PT using a browser-based software (link below). We are welcoming interest from those interested in doing doctoral research in one of our core areas of inquiry: Digital Information Systems and Interaction; Management and Preservation of Digital Records; and Creation and Use of Cultural Materials. The session will include information on the program of study, application procedures and funding, and an opportunity to discuss questions with faculty.

Subject:      tech glitch jESSE msgs
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"; format=flowed

Greetings,

I started this msg to an individual subscriber but thought that more might 
be interested. It is technical.  If technical stuff is not your interest 
skip to the last few paras for advice.

   The usual reason for labeling a msg "rec'd with a technical glitch" 
is that the person REPLYing has put the jESSE address as a "cc" or 
"bcc", and has put the original SENDer (the person who first posted the 
msg) in the "TO" statement.  Given the variable practices of today's 
e-mail clients and how they process listserv (and other discussion list 
msgs) this is not uncommon.

   That is, the placement of what goes in the "TO" statement is in part 
your choice, and in part the determination of your e-mail client.

   The listserv software enables me to approve a msg for jESSE with a 
simple OK command as a reply to the listserv software, AS LONG AS the 
jESSE listserv address appears in the TO statement, and not any other one.

   Some lists are configured to send a reply to a listserv post to the 
individual, first poster (for example a disability list that I belong to, 
which is incessantly rained with msgs like "please post to the list". 
jESSE is configured to send replies to a jESSE post to the list itself 
(hence the lack of rain).

   It appears that some e-mail clients also have such configurations, in 
that sensing a listserv or other discussion post, they are configured to 
send a reply to such a msg to the original poster, with the jESSE list as 
a "cc" or "bcc".

   I recall some early e-mail clients who had only two REPLY functions: 
REPLY and REPLY ALL, and who knows what they put into these two fields 
when the msg was from a listserv (mailbase, listproc, etc) or whatever 
software the discussion list was based on.

   Once or twice a week I get msgs directed to jESSE which don't appear to 
have the jESSE list address in the TO statement.  I can't use the 
automated OK mechanism which directly forwards the REPLY to the jESSE 
list.

   In this case, I have two choices: (1)  work with the person trying to 
REPLY to a jESSE msg to figure out what went wrong, and this person may 
not be really comfortable with listserv software, STMP protocols, other 
standards for e-mail, or e-mail clients, or (2) copy the REPLY person's 
msg into a new msg that I know will get to the listserv software and get 
out to jESSE readers right away.  In that case, I include the REPLY 
person's header information and the complete posting.  I label these as 
"received with a technical glitch" because I have no idea exactly what 
went wrong.

   But the msg goes out quickly and without a fuss.  And it gets posted to 
the jESSE archive so that you can see if your msg was distributed to the 
jESSE list.

   The difference between these two processes is this:  If I can use the OK 
mechanism, the msg is sent out clearly as sent in and without any editing 
on my part.  I clearly have not touched it.  If I have to copy the msg to 
a new msg and send it as one "received with a technical glitch" one could 
fuss that I edited the msg.  But I didn't and don't.

   The point here is this:  If you read a msg from jESSE that says 
"received with a technical glitch" DO NOT assume that the person who is 
REPLYing has a problem or is anything else negative. There are WAY TOO 
MANY variables in listserv or discussion list software to sort this out. 
And there is NO WAY IN H*** that I am going to insist that everyone use 
the same e-mail client to comunicate with a community.  People who do (and 
we know who they are) are just (&^%$$#@).


    DO assume that the msg so labeled is an honest copy of the original, 
and that the original REPLYer (or sometimes SENDer) just unavoidably ran 
afoul of the still-lacking standards for e-mail communication and clients.


    I hope that this clarifies issues for everyone.

    Send away.  Neither rain, nor sleet, nor lack of standards, nor poorly 
designed e-mail clients, will prevent the mail from getting through. At 
least as far as I can help it.  :-)

Gretchen 

May I try this again and feel free to edit.

The question I tried to ask is whether any online,open access social science journals exist which do not publish as issues volumes but
instead when material submitted to the journal is "good enough".

Jim

If the question is "are there open access social science journals,"
the answer is decidedly Yes, and the place to start exploring is the
Directory of Open Access Journals, http://www.doaj.org/

(There are over 300 in the social sciences and hundreds in subsets,
including 133 in LIS.)

If the question is "is there a high-profile very successful
all-discipline OA journal for social sciences?"--not that I know of.

Colleagues,

 

Will you help us inform others that we are just 6 weeks away from the
deadline for submitting papers to our InSITE 2013 conferences in Porto,
Portugal?  The conferences take place the first week on July.

 

Will you forward this announcement to email lists to which you belong?  Here
is a link to our Call for Participation:
http://informingscience.us/CfPInSITE2013.pdf . The main website for the
conferences is http://InSITE.NU .

 

The conferences' keynote speakers include David Harris, designer of things
that inform, and Prof. T. Grandon Gill, prolific author and investigator.
Attendees will be able, without charge, to attend sessions of the collocated
Complexity, Cybernetics,  Informing Science, and Engineering Conference put
on by IIIS.

 

In addition to the collocated CCISE conference, the InSITE conferences
include the following four collocated conferences:

 

InSITE: Inform -- solicits papers in any area that explores issues in
effectively and efficiently informing clients through IT (information
technology).

 

InSITE: TeachIT --  focuses on research topics related to teaching IT,
including curricular issues, capstone courses, pedagogy, and emerging topics
in IT.

 

InSITE: TeLE --  focuses on research topics related to using IT to teach.
For example, these topics include e-Learning, m-Learning, making classroom
teaching more effective, and distance learning.

and

InSITE: =Connect= consists of study in various locations on the transmission
of information across time and across space. Connect focuses on the
interrelationship between context (historical forces and culture) and
information and knowledge transfer.

 

Beginning this year, the Informing Science Institute is benefiting from
ICARUS-ISI  special software designed for us to encourage online
collaborative paper creation, submission, review, and revision, created by
Dr. Raafat Saade.  

 

Colleagues able to review three conference papers this December, please
visit http://Volunteer.InformingScience.org to sign up.  (Productive
conference reviewers receive $50 in discounts on their conference
registration fee as a token of our thanks.)

 

Here are some tutorials on how to use the new ICARUS system:

Call for Papers
2013 Rutgers Media Studies Conference: Extending Play (April 19-20, 2013)

http://mediacon.rutgers.edu

Can we still define play as an organizing principle in today's
technologically mediated world?

Play can be hard work and serious business, and it's time to push beyond
the conceptualization of play as merely the pursuit of leisure and
consider how the issues of power, affect, labor, identity, and privacy
surround the idea and practice of play. The Rutgers Media Studies
Conference: Extending Play invites submissions that seek to understand
play as a mediating practice, and how play operates at the center of all
media.

We are interested in all approaches to the traditions, roles, and contexts
of play, and hope to explore how play can be broadly defined and
incorporated as a fundamental principle extending into far-flung and
unexpected arenas. Johan Huizinga characterizes man as the species that
plays: "Law and order, commerce and profit, craft and art, poetry, wisdom
and science. All are rooted in the primaeval soil of play" (Homo Ludens,
p.5). How does play operate as a civilizing function - or is it perhaps a
technology that produces order?

Play is a means of exploring and joining various disciplines: Social
media, mash-ups, and blogs have altered how we communicate and create;
game design has influenced how businesses relate to consumers; citizen
journalists have shifted the role of the professional in mediating
information and forging a public sphere.

To explore these questions, we invite scholars, students, tinkerers,
visionaries, and players to the first ever Rutgers Media Studies
Conference: Extending Play, to be held April 19th and 20th, 2013 on the
Rutgers University campus in New Brunswick, NJ.

Confirmed speakers for our keynote conversations include Fred Turner
(Stanford University) & Stephen Duncombe (New York University) and Trevor
Pinch (Cornell University) & Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky (The European
Graduate School).

We invite individuals from media studies and related fields in the
humanities and social sciences to participate. Potential topics for paper,
panel, roundtable, and workshop may include, but are not limited to:

-Playing with labor: work-like games and game-like work
-Play as resistance (culture jamming, situationist art, or other contexts)
-Gendering (and gendered) play -Music and performance -Linguistic play
-Play and social media -Playing with identity
-Love and play (flirtation, AI relationships, robotica, etc)
-Gamification and games in nontraditional settings
-Transgression, cheating, and "gaming" systems -Darker side of play
(trolling, gambling, or corruption)
-Game studies

The Rutgers Media Studies Conference: Extending Play promises to offer a
memorable meeting of scholarship, and to that end, we are looking to play
with standard conference conventions. One track throughout the conference
will be a series of public workshop sessions in which scholars and
practitioners will host roundtable discussions on contemporary issues that
bring together an audience of experts and interested parties.


In the academic panel track, each presenter will have a maximum of 15
minutes to offer his or her ideas as a presentation or interactive
conversation, and will choose one of the following methods of
presentation:

-material accompaniment (hand out a zine, scrapbook, postcard series, etc)
-performance (spoken word, song, verse, dance, recording, etc)
-limited visuals (a maximum of 3 slides and 25 total words)
-game (create rules and incorporate audience play)

For additional ideas on how to play with media, play with time, or play
with space during your presentation, visit our website at:
mediacon.rutgers.edu.

*The deadline for proposals is Saturday, December 1, 2012.*
We invite individual proposals, full panel proposals (of four members),
and proposals for roundtable and workshop sessions. Please email an
abstract of approximately 247 words, along with your name, affiliation,
presentation method, and a short biography to [log in to unmask] If you
are interested in proposing a topic for our public workshop track, or are
interested in participating in one, please indicate that as well.
*Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by mid-January 2013.*

Health Informatics Student Interns at Area Hospital
A two-week Heath Informatics internship with Akron General Medical Center solidified Rachel Nordhoff's decision to continue her education in the Health Informatics graduate program at Kent State University. The internship was designed for Health Informatics students who don't have health care experience. The opportunity helped Nordhoff understand how hospitals and clinical staff utilize their current systems, the advantages and challenges presented by those systems and the varying needs of different departments in regard to the systems. It also made her more aware of "the atmosphere of urgency that permeates health care: when lives are on the line, delays and errors take on new meaning. Even a malfunctioning printer can cause massive issues," she said. Read more at http://www.kent.edu/slis/news/newsdetail.cfm?newsitem=D9C7CD03-BA18-ECC3-5043FECA1D329CF2.

SLIS/IAKM Assistant Professor Karl Fast, Ph.D., was interviewed on Sept. 15 for the CBC Radio show Spark, a national program about the impact of technology in everyday life. Fast was interviewed about "deep interaction"-how the way we interact with information helps us understand that information-and what this means as our technologies shift from keyboards and mice to touch and gesture. The 10-minute interview is online at http://www.cbc.ca/spark/episodes/2012/09/12/189-interactions-agreements-suspicions/. Fast also spoke recently on "Information Overload is an Opportunity" at Fluxible, a user experience (UX) conference in Kitchener, Ontario. The September program included speakers from Google, Research in Motion, Kobo and various UX design studios: http://www.fluxible.ca/.

SLIS Associate Professor Meghan Harper, Ph.D., has published two refereed articles in current issue of OELMA's Ohio Media Spectrum (64:1, Fall 2012): "Evaluation in the School Library as a Key to Advocacy," pages 15-21, and "Awesome Assessment Tools for Advocacy in the School," pages 32-34.

SLIS Assistant Professor Kiersten F. Latham, Ph.D., presented two papers at the 2012 DOCAM (Document Academy) in August. Her papers are titled "Exploring the Museal Jungle" and "A Tale of Two Document Storytelling Perspectives," the latter of which is co-written with SLIS Adjunct Instructor Jodi Kearns, Ph.D. DOCAM12 was hosted by the faculty of Information and Media Studies at The University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada.

SLIS Assistant Professor Marianne Martens, Ph.D., presented a paper titled, "Desperately Seeking Dissent: Subversive Readings in Transmedia Storytelling," at Protest on the Page: Print Culture History in Opposition to Almost Anything* (*you can think of) -- A Conference of the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture, held in Madison, Wis., in September.

SLIS Professor Marcia Zeng, Ph.D., SLIS Associate Professor Athena Salaba, Ph.D., and SLIS alumna Maja Zumer, M.L.S. '93, have published a book, FRSAD: Conceptual Modeling of Aboutness (Santa Barbara, Calif.: Libraries Unlimited, 2012). The volume is part of the Third Millennium Cataloging Series. The FRSAD model (released by IFLA) allows catalogers to more readily determine the answer to the fundamental question, "What's it about?" and helps users by providing a clear description of library holdings. The cover says this publication was "written by three leading members of the IFLA working group that developed the model."

Cities in North America.

The School of Information Sciences (http://www.ischool.pitt.edu
<http://www.ischool.pitt.edu/> ) at the University of Pittsburgh is seeking
to fill a faculty position in Archives, Preservation, and Records management
at the rank of Assistant/Associate Professor (Non-tenure stream).

 

The School is a top ranked information school (iSchool) offering a wide
variety of multidisciplinary opportunities, including an undergraduate
program (BSIS), Master's programs in information science (MSIS),
telecommunications & networking (MST), library & information science (MLIS),
and Ph.D. programs. The iSchool at Pitt emphasizes the synthesis of people,
information and technology, and offers opportunities for research,
instruction, and service spanning the diverse needs and interests of an
information-intensive, multi-cultural, and increasingly digital society.
The School is seeking candidates with a strong commitment to research as
well as graduate and undergraduate education.

 

We are looking for an experienced practitioner and mature scholar in the
Archives, Preservation, and Records Management area who can demonstrate an
understanding in APRM, specifically

 

*	Historical and contemporary archival theory and practice
*	Current standards and best practices surrounding appraisal,
accessioning, arrangement, description, representation, manipulation, and
preservation or records held in stewardship 
*	The complexities of care presented by both analog and digital
formats, and
*	US and international archival policy and traditions.

 

We are also interested in someone who is comfortable with helping to lead
our program into digital stewardship or curation in both research and
teaching. The School is also searching for a new senior faculty member in
digital stewardship, emphasizing digital preservation, science, technology,
and society, and related matters. We expect the new APRM faculty member to
be able to work with the other anticipated senior position.

 

The new APRM faculty member is expected to be a liaison with the Pittsburgh
regional archives community and regional and national professional
associations. We expect candidates for this position to possess good
experience in such community and professional work and to have excellent
interpersonal and communication skills.

 

Our School has supported one of the leading APRM graduate programs in the
United States for many years. We presently have three faculty members
teaching in the APRM program, including a leading scholar in archival
studies; an assistant professor working in science and technology studies,
social and cultural theory, public and applied history, and archives; and a
lecturer with a joint appointment in Art History and Architecture and
focusing on archives and the digital humanities. We support a large number
of doctoral students working in the APRM area, and our School has supplied a
substantial number of faculty in this field.

 

Candidates who bridge disciplinary areas are specifically encouraged to
apply.  Successful candidates will demonstrate a strong interest and current
awareness of the technological and cultural context in which their knowledge
contributes to issues of contemporary society.  A record of collaboration
with other scholars is highly desirable.  

 

As the school offers an online degree program in addition to on-campus
programs, candidates with complementary expertise and experience in
educational technologies are encouraged to apply (although there is no
expectation of teaching APRM courses online).

 

Candidates applying for the position(s) are expected to hold an earned
doctorate or the equivalent in academic or professional experience.
Applicants should present a record of effective teaching, research, and
related scholarly activities. Electronic applications should be sent to
[log in to unmask] Applications should include a cover letter,
curriculum vitae, and the names, addresses (with e-mail), and telephone
numbers of three references. For full consideration, applications must be
received by December 15, 2012. 

 

Candidates attending the ASIS&T Conference in Baltimore, MD, are encouraged
to send their curriculum vitae to [log in to unmask] by October 25 in
order to schedule a preliminary interview at the conference. Interviews at
other professional conferences, including ALISE and the iConference, can
also be arranged. Appointment to this position is subject to approval by the
Provost of the University of Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh's industrial past has given way to an enterprising and vibrant
present. Affordable living, world-class universities, distinctive
neighborhoods, growing industries, and an abundance of leisure activities
create a quality of life in Pittsburgh that is virtually unmatched.
Pittsburgh is consistently ranked in Rand McNally's Top Ten Most Livable
Cities in North America. 

 

The University of Pittsburgh is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action
employer and strongly encourages women and candidates from under-represented
minorities to apply.

The iSchool, College of Information Science and Technology, Drexel University,  Assistant Professor Michael Khoo and Doctoral Student Catherine Hall Earn Best Paper

A paper by iSchool Assistant Professor Michael Khoo and doctoral student Catherine Hall, titled "What Would 'Google' Do? Users' Mental Models of a Digital Library Search Engine," was awarded first place in the best paper competition at the September 2012, 2nd International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL 2012, Cyprus). The paper will appear in Springer-Verlag  Lecture Notes on Computer Science, Vol. 7489.

Abstract from "What Would 'Google' Do? Users' Mental Models of a Digital Library Search Engine":
A mental model is a model that people have of themselves, others, the environment, and the things with which they interact, such as technologies. Mental models can support the user-centered development of digital libraries: if we can understand how users perceive digital libraries, we can design interfaces that take these perceptions into account. In this paper, we describe a novel method for eliciting a generic mental model from users, in this case of a digital library's search engine. The method is based on a content analysis of users' mental representations of the system's usability, which they generated in heuristic evaluations. The content analysis elicited features that the evaluators thought important for the search engine. The resulting mental model represents a generic model of the search engine, rather than a clustering of individuals' mental models of the same search engine. The model includes a number of references to Web search engines as ideal models, but these references are idealistic rather than realistic. We conclude that users' mental models of Web search engines should not be taken at face value. The implications of this finding for digital library development and design are discussed.

Mental models can support the user-centered development of digital libraries: if we can understand how users perceive digital libraries, we can design interfaces that take these perceptions into account. In this paper, we describe a novel method for eliciting a generic mental model from users, in this case of a digital library&#8217;s search engine. The method is based on a content analysis of users&#8217; mental representations of the system&#8217;s usability, which they generated in heuristic evaluations. The content analysis elicited features that the evaluators thought important for the search engine. The resulting mental model represents a generic model of the search engine, rather than a clustering of individuals&#8217; mental models of the same search engine. The model includes a number of references to Web search engines as ideal models, but these references are idealistic rather than realistic. We conclude that users&#8217; mental models of Web search engines should not be taken at face value. The implications of this finding for digital library development and design are discussed.<o:p></o:p></span></i></p><p class=MsoNormal style='margin-bottom:10.0pt'><span style='font-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"'><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p><p class=MsoNormal style='margin-bottom:10.0pt'><span style='font-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"'>For more information, visit us at <a href="http://www.ischool.drexel.edu"><span style='color:windowtext'>www.ischool.drexel.edu</span></a><o:p></o:p></span></p><p class=MsoNormal style='margin-bottom:10.0pt'><span style='font-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif";color:#1F497D'><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p><p class=MsoNormal style='margin-bottom:10.0pt'><span style='font-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif";color:#1F497D'><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p></div></div></body></html>

jESSE Colleagues:

The University of Alabama School of Library and Information Studies welcomes Dr. Ina Fourie to our campus as the next speaker in the UA SLIS Research Colloquia Series<http://blogs.slis.ua.edu/uaslis-researchcolloquiaseries/> on Tuesday, October 23, 2012<http://blogs.slis.ua.edu/uaslis-researchcolloquiaseries/2012/10/05/ina-fourie-university-of-pretoria-slis-visiting-scholar-102312/> in Gorgas Library room 503 from 12 noon to 1:00 pm CDT. Please also note that this research presentation WILL be available at a distance (see below).

Dr. Fourie<http://web.up.ac.za/default.asp?ipkCategoryID=3715> is a professor in the Department of Information Science<http://web.up.ac.za/default.asp?ipkCategoryID=2074&subid=2074&ipklookid=7&parentid=> at the University of Pretoria. She will giving a public research presentation during her visit:
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 - 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm CDT - RESEARCH PRESENTATION in Gorgas Library room 503 (brown bag)
Understanding Information Behaviour in Palliative Care: Arguing for Exploring Diverse and Multiple Overlapping Contexts
Introduction: Palliative care is associated with life-threatening diseases and especially the last phase between life and death - end-of-life. Although noted, the emotion, trauma, despair and physical deterioration of this phase are not fully acknowledged in information behaviour and healthcare literature. Patients' and families' unmet information needs and frustrations remain of concern.
Method: To deepen understanding of the complexity of information behaviour in palliative care and identification of information needs not recognised and/or not expressed, the paper advocates exploring (identifying and labelling) diverse and multiple contexts in palliative care that have been noted from the literature reporting on information behaviour in palliative care, as well as palliative care per se. Arguments will be illustrated using contexts of pain as example.
Analysis: An exploratory information behaviour model depicting diverse contexts in palliative care is used to direct brief discussions of the contexts of informing, awareness, location of disease and disease trajectory, pain, support and social networks, and location of care, as examples of such contexts. The paper focuses on patients. Context of pain will be used to illustrate arguments.
Conclusion: Considering diverse, multiple, overlapping contexts in relation to palliative care and information behaviour might contribute to identifying dormant and unexpressed information needs, and deepening understanding of the complexity and diversity of information behaviour. A wider spectrum of contexts might be noted through further in-depth content analysis of the literature on palliative care and related issues to direct further research. The presentation reports on work in progress.

Dear Colleagues

please consider submitting a paper at www.isi2013.de:

*13th International Symposium of Information Science (ISI) in Potsdam**
*Submission deadline for papers: 11th of November 2012

In 2013 the biennial central conference of the _German Higher Education 
Association for Information Science_ (HI) is to be held by the 
Information Sciences Department of University of Applied Sciences 
Potsdam (FH) in collaboration with the _American Society of Information 
Science and Technology_ (ASIS&T).

Taking place under the slogan: "Information Sciences between Virtual 
Infrastructure and Material Lifeworlds", the symposium will run from the 
19th to the 22nd of March 2013 and seek to explore the bridging between 
traditional computer science topics and new approaches from interface 
design, activity theory and cognitive science.

Keynote presentations from the likes of /Diane Sonnenwald,/ President of 
the symposium's US-American association partner, /Alfio M. Gliozzo/ from 
the IBM Watson Research Center and well-known technological futurologist 
/Alan N. Shapiro/ will introduce the key topics.

The conference programme will comprise more than 10 topics blocks for 
which long and short papers, panel discussion, posters and 
student/doctoral thesis presentations can be submitted up until the 29th 
of October 2012 via the symposium website at www.isi2013.de.

The latest research findings from the various fields of the information 
sciences in Germany and internationally will feature and highlight the 
progression the information sciences have undergone over the last two 
years, while an anonymous approval process conducted by proven national 
and international specialists guarantees a symposium of outstanding 
quality. English-language papers are welcome, and the conference 
languages are German and English.

The highlight of the symposium has often been the awarding of the 
Gerhard Lustig Prize, named after one of the founders of information 
science in Germany, for the best student thesis on information science 
from 2011-- 2012. The selected papers will receive their accolades at a 
special evening event.

To coincide with ISI2013, various information science events will take 
place at FH Potsdam immediately prior to and following the symposium: 
the annual conference of the German chapter of the International Society 
for Knowledge Organisation (ISKO), FH Potsdam's yearly I-Science Day 
organised in collaboration with the German Initiative for Network 
Information (DINI e.V.) and "frei<tag>", the BarCamp from library 
sciences e-journal LIBREAS.

Further information on the conference can be found at www.isi2013.de.

Study in London this summer!
 Please distribute to your students.  


An exciting opportunity to earn six graduate LIS credits while living in central London is being offered by the Florida State University School of Library and Information Studies.  Two multimedia production courses, taught by Dr. Nancy Everhart from July 8 to July 29, 2013 at the FSU London Centre, will use this dynamic city and the surrounding areas as a backdrop for creating projects such as podcasts, social networking sites, blogs, short films, and digital photography.  No prior experience with these media is required. All classes will be field trip based. There are online requirements before and after the time in London.
Other pertinent information:
 
·      The two courses are: LIS 5313 -Digital Media: Concepts and Production and LIS 5362 – Design and Production of Networked Multimedia. Participants must take both courses and they will be focused on application of media to libraries and teaching and learning. Students will have the opportunity to apply course material to their current work situation if desired, or to build a professional portfolio.
 
·      The FSU London Centre is housed in a 17th century building that FSU owns in the heart of 'literary London' and within walking distance to the shopping district and to the West End theater district.  It is less that one block from the British Museum and a tube stop.  Students are housed in flats at the Centre or in nearby Bloomsbury.
 
·      Day trips to Paris, Oxford, and the Warner Brothers “Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour” in Leavesdon are included. In Paris we’ll visit the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, enjoy French cuisine and a cruise on the Seine. Students can extend their stay in Paris for a full weekend. 
 
·      Many field trips are tied to settings of children’s stories like Harry Potter, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and Mary Poppins.  Visits to famous landmarks including Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, Kensington Palace, Abbey Road, Hyde and Regent’s Parks, the British Library and numerous museums form the backdrop for media projects.
  
·      Cost is $5895 for both in-state and out-of-state participants.  The fee includes all registration and instructional costs for 6 graduate credit hours; travel on the Eurostar from London to Paris; all admissions to program social/cultural activities; welcome and farewell meals; health insurance; international student ID card; T-shirt; full-time academic and administrative support.  
 
·      Airfare, other meals, books and supplies are not included in the cost.
 
·      Credits earned in this program may be later transferred into the master’s degree program at FSU for students who may be accepted at a future date.  These offerings are regularly offered graduate courses.
 
·      Extra time is budgeted for travel on your own.
 
·      Deadline to register is December 5, 2012. ($100 deposit is needed to reserve your spot.) 
 
·      This program is open to students from other universities who may wish to transfer the credits, or to non-students (school librarians, teachers, other librarians or IT professionals) who are interested in this exciting summer opportunity for professional development continuing education credits.

*Powering Search: The Role of Thesauri in New Information Environments*

By Ali Shiri



Published on behalf of the American Society for Information Science and
Technology

by Information Today, Inc. (ASIS&T Monograph Series)

http://books.infotoday.com/asist/Powering-Search.shtml

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the role of thesauri in
search user interfaces across a range of information search and retrieval
systems—from bibliographic and full-text databases to digital libraries,
portals, open archives, and content management systems. It takes a new
approach to thesauri by examining, analyzing and synthesizing perspectives,
projects, practices, and services from a variety of communities who share
an interest in thesauri, including search behavior, usability studies,
search user interfaces, information architecture, and interactive
information retrieval. The book addresses and examines the ways in which
information retrieval thesauri, with sophisticated semantic networks, have
been and are currently being used in a wide variety of web-based search and
browsing user interfaces. Furthermore, the book provides a detailed
discussion of empirical evaluations as well as usability studies that have
made use of thesauri by a broad range of users, from online search
specialists, indexers, and catalogers to end-users.

"I'm really impressed! A unified vision of the enhancement of searching
vocabulary throughout the current information technology world. Beautifully
written, comprehensive, and revealing of the many possible uses of
vocabulary enhancement in improving online searches." —Marcia J. Bates,
editor, *Understanding Information Retrieval Systems**.***

"A brilliant synthesis that explains how controlled vocabularies and
thesauri can be integrated with search systems to dramatically improve
findability and the overall user experience. ... a must read for all
information architects!" —Peter Morville, co-author, *Search Patterns:
Design for Discovery**.*

"This book is a significant contribution to the information management
literature. As a reference book it is extremely well documented; lots of
examples; covers the latest developments and research. Will be a useful
resource for user interface developers."—Marjorie M. K. Hlava,
president, Access Innovations, Inc.

"After 50 years of evolution the thesaurus remains a potent tool. With
experience of relevant practice-oriented research, Ali Shiri's account of
the design, use, and evaluation of thesauri for interactive and web-based
search and browsing is useful and readable." —Alan Gilchrist,
Cura Consortium.

The School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, the iSchool at the University of British Columbia, is presenting two opportunities for the public to hear from our faculty and others next week.

Is Privacy Necessary? A Talk by iSchool Faculty

Victoria Lemieux will present "Is Privacy Necessary?" at the Wall Scholars Café on Monday, October 22. This is part of a series of talks
presented by the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, and is open to the public. The talk will be given at the Peter Wall Institute on the UBC Campus. For more information, visit http://www.pwias.ubc.ca/news-events/upcoming-events/.

Panel Discussion for School Library Day

On Wednesday, October 24, the iSchool presents its next event in the 2012-13 Colloquium Series, a panel discussion as part of School Library Day in British Columbia.

"Engaging Youth with Indigenous Materials in Libraries and Classrooms" will be held on Wednesday, October 24, from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Dodson Room, in the Irving K. Barker Learning Centre at UBC. This event is open to the public, and will address challenges facing Indigenous and non-Indigenous librarians, educators and parents when drawing upon materials representing Indigenous peoples and cultures.  They will offer insights about such issues as cultural appropriation, stereotypes, addressing colonialism and what to do with dated resources. This session is ideal for teacher candidates, classroom teachers, teacher-librarians, youth librarians and parents.

Panelists are Debra Martel, Associate Director of UBC's First Nations House of Learning, Jan Hare, Associate Professor in the UBC Department of Language and Literacy Education, and Allison Taylor-McBryde, Adjunct Professor, School of Library, Archival and Information Studies. Convenor for the panel is Jo-Anne Naslund of the UBC Education Library, and moderator is Lisa P. Nathan, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the First Nations Curriculum Concentration at the UBC iSchool.

Greetings,
   Please see

https://www.coursera.org/course/insidetheinternet

a course on the history of the Internet.  Starts (TBA).  Could be 
interesting.  I lived most of this history, so it will be an interesting 
perspective.  A very interesting part is the interviews with the pioneers 
of the net and the web.

The most interesting parts of the course may well be its format in 
general, and the handling of discussion groups. While content will be 
important, the medium or process of conveying this content may be the most 
interesting.

Join me!

PS This is offered by a U Wash IS prof, Charles Severance.  Let's see what 
he can do.

dear all,

I am forwarding the following announcement on behalf of Emerald Group 
Publishing. Please respond directly to Ruth Glasspool.

Best wishes ... Michael

**

*An exciting opportunity -- **/The Electronic Library/**Call for Editor*

**

*/The Electronic Library: The international journal for the application 
of technology in information environments/*

**

Emerald Group Publishing Limited is inviting applications for the 
position of Editor of /The Electronic Library 
<http://www.emeraldinsight.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=el>/*. 
*This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious and focused 
individual with solid editorial experience to edit an exciting journal 
in Emerald's Library and Information Science portfolio.

*About **/The Electronic Library/***

/The Electronic Library/is devoted to the applications and implications 
of new technology, automation, digitisation, the Internet, user 
interfaces, and networks in all types of libraries, information centres 
and museums throughout the world as well as the development of software 
and hardware for such applications. It provides a vehicle for the latest 
research and ongoing developments in today's digital library and 
information environments in different countries, and offers practical 
advice, useful information and descriptions of specific applications 
around the globe. Papers submitted to the journal are subject to double 
blind peer review to ensure academic rigor and integrity and the journal 
is Thomson Reuters ISI ranked.

*The role of the journal Editor*

Emerald is seeking to recruit an engaged and enthusiastic Editor or 
Editors to develop the journal. The journal Editor/s will be responsible 
for the following:

    * Managing the journal's double blind peer review process with the
      assistance of the Editorial Advisory Board
    * Selecting and maintaining a pool of competent reviewers
    * Delivering appropriate content for six journal issues per volume
      to an agreed schedule
    * Upholding and developing editorial standards on the journal,
      through the good management of the peer review process
    * Engaging the Editorial Advisory Board in the work of the journal
    * Developing and maintaining a network of contacts to act as
      advocates for the journal or sources of content as appropriate
    * Attending conferences or similar events to promote the journal and
      generate submissions
    * Working with the journal Publisher (at Emerald) to achieve agreed
      development objectives for the journal and to raise its
      international profile and standing

The journal Editor receives an honorarium in lieu of his/her work on the 
journal. Additional budget is also made available to the Editor to 
part-fund attendance at conferences or other events of relevance to the 
journal.

Emerald is looking for the new Editor to outline a position for the 
journal in terms of scope and coverage to further distinguish it from 
competitor journals, both Emerald and non-Emerald journals, to create a 
unique outlet in the field of LIS journals for authors and readers.

*Qualifications and requirements of candidates*

Some of the key qualities sought for the position of Editor are:

    * An established record of scholarship in the field of library,

University of Missouri - College of Education

Division Executive Director



The College of Education at the University of Missouri (MU) seeks an innovative, experienced and entrepreneurial leader to serve as Division Executive Director (DED).  This DED will serve as the executive in charge of the following academic units:

*         School of Information Sciences and Learning Technologies (SISLT)

*         Department of Educational, School and Counseling Psychology (ESCP)

*         Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis (ELPA)



The Division consists of 9 graduate academic programs with 60 faculty and 29 professional staff.


Position Description: The Division Executive Director is responsible for the leadership and administration of the three units described above including oversight of academic programs, faculty evaluation, course scheduling, budget, support of faculty productivity and professional development,  facilitation of innovation, support and implementation of the college's continuous improvement efforts.  The DED will encourage and support cross-disciplinary initiatives that build on the foundations of highly successful and nationally ranked academic programs.  As an AAU member institution we place a very high value on scholarly productivity.   Each academic unit also has an Associate Division Director, who provides academic leadership within each unit under the supervision of the Division Executive Director.  The DED position is a 12-month administrative position, while serving on the Dean's Executive Council and College Leadership Team.



Minimum Qualifications: (1) A doctoral degree from an accredited university with a specialty in one of the academic areas represented within the division;  (2) A distinguished record of scholarship and teaching that merits appointment as a tenured full professor, (3) administrative experience in an academic unit, and (4)  demonstrated commitment to educational and cultural needs of diverse populations.



Desired Qualifications: (1) Experience with systematic continuous improvement, (2) success as a principal investigator or co-investigator on a federally funded project, (3) advanced training and professional development in higher education administration, (4) demonstrated success in entrepreneurial activities, and (5) successful fiscal and personnel experience.


The College of Education (COE) is ranked among the top doctoral granting colleges of education in the country.  The COE recently completed a new strategic plan and is financially well positioned to invest in opportunities for innovative ideas in support of the new plan.  Annual expenditures for externally funded projects are approximately $12 million with funded projects in research, instruction and public service.  The research portfolio has increased significantly in recent years, and is poised for continued significant strategic growth.  The College is a leader on the campus and is nationally recognized for its distance and online education programs.

MU is the oldest state university west of the Mississippi River and the largest of the four institutions in the University of Missouri System.  In 1848, MU became the first public university in the nation to open a college specific to teacher preparation.  Today, the College of Education has a student population of approximately 1,300 undergraduates and 1,600 graduate students with 88 tenured/tenure-track and 29 full-time non-tenure track faculty members. Cultural diversity is an important goal supported by the Division, College, and MU. More information is available on the web at: education.missouri.edu

MU is located in Columbia, a metropolitan community of approximately 130,000 which has been rated by Money Magazine, Men's Journal and MSN.COM as one of the best places to live in the U.S. MU has a student body of over 34,000, and is designated as a Carnegie Doctoral/Research University Extensive. MU is one of only six universities in the U.S. that is both the flagship and land grant institution housing medicine, veterinary medicine and law on the same campus.  As an AAU member institution since 1908, MU is recognized as one of the top research and educational institutions in the nation.

This position provides an opportunity to work at a world-class research university in a beautiful and diverse setting that offers a high quality of life.  There are numerous opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts and Columbia has been recognized as a bike-friendly community.  Both Kansas City and St. Louis are within a 90-minute drive offering the shopping and cultural opportunities of major metropolitan areas.  Columbia has a very high quality public school system and provides many opportunities for art, culture and music enthusiasts.



Salary/Starting Date: Competitive and commensurate with experience and qualifications. Starting date is negotiable.



Application:  Apply online at http://hrs.missouri.edu/find-a-job/academic providing a detailed cover letter addressing minimum and desired qualifications, a current CV, and names and contact information for five references.

*******************************************************************************
CFP: Third Workshop on Collaborative Information Seeking (CIS)
At the ACM CSCW 2013 Conference
February 24, 2013. San Antonio, Texas.
http://collab.infoseeking.org/events/cscw2013workshop
*******************************************************************************
Information seeking is often not a solitary activity. The notion that people working in collaboration on information tasks should be studied and supported has become more prevalent in the recent years. The field of collaborative information seeking (CIS) is re-emerging, and bringing researchers and practitioners from various disciplines. This workshop will provide an opportunity to gather a motivated set of participants in learning and sharing their insights around theoretical foundations of CIS as well as its applications. The interactive nature of the workshop will allow the participants share their research, ideas, questions, and opinions with a goal of outlining an agenda for future research on collaborative information seeking, synthesis, and sense-making. The workshop will provide a venue to bring together those who have been working on CIS issues and those who want to plan their research agenda in this emerging field.

*Workshop Format*
The workshop is organized as a highly interactive event.

The Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) at the University of Illinois has received a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) in the amount of $499,919 to develop a framework for curating scientific research data. The grant, "Site-Based Data Curation for Small Science" is a two-year project led by Carole Palmer, GSLIS Professor and Director of the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship (CIRSS)<http://cirss.lis.illinois.edu>. The co-PIs and partner institutions are Bruce Fouke, Professor in Geology, Microbiology, and the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Ann Rodman, Director of Geographic Information Systems at Yellowstone National Park; and Sayeed Choudhury, Hodson Director of the Digital Research and Curation Center and Associate Dean for Research Data Management at Johns Hopkins University.

The team brings together experts in data curation, research library repositories, geobiology, and research site management to develop policies and processes for the curation of diverse digital data collected at Yellowstone National Park (YNP). Yellowstone is a tremendously rich and scientifically significant site for data collection in geobiology, drawing scientists investigating research questions ranging from the origin of life on Earth to the search for life on other planets. The framework will result in a general curation model readily extendible to other national parks and other important research sites, especially cradles of biodiversity such as coral reefs and deep crustal biosphere locations.

"The SBDC framework will be an important step forward in professional best practices for the curation of research data," said Palmer. "It also represents the kinds of institutional collaborations needed to build functional, interdisciplinary data services and systems for earth and life sciences. Geobiology is an exemplary interdisciplinary science, and Yellowstone is a mecca for data collection in geobiology. The project is responding to the needs of scientists who can benefit from sharing and integrating data, as well as the needs of park service professionals who support the science communities that depend on the rich data resources available at YNP."

Fouke, who has conducted research at Yellowstone for many years, said, "This cross-disciplinary site-based data curation research program with Professor Palmer and her team will fundamentally influence how geobiology research is currently being conducted in Yellowstone National Park. This will positively impact not only how research questions are formulated and field data collected, but also the core principles behind data dissemination and availability."

The project will also test workflows for the transfer of curated data to the Data Conservancy for preservation and access and help support the coordination of data resources produced at the YNP. "JHU is excited about this important project because it provides a unique opportunity to further explore the potential for Data Conservancy (DC) infrastructure toward long-tail science, particularly on-site at the point of data acquisition or creation. This project also builds on lessons learned during the use of DC infrastructure for the Dry Valleys Project," said Choudhury.

The new data curation approaches will be integrated into the curriculum of the specialization in Data Curation at GSLIS<http://www.lis.illinois.edu/academics/programs/ms/data_curation> and undergraduate and graduate geobiology courses taught at Illinois, with educational outreach extended to Yellowstone. The education activities will advance data curation workforce expertise in handling complex, cross-disciplinary data and help prepare scientific communities to contribute to and take advantage of diverse collections of curated data.

The University of Hawaii

Department of Information and Computer Sciences

Library and Information Science Program



School Library Media Assistant Professor Position for August 2013



The University of Hawaii Library and Information Science Program, within
the Department of Information and Computer Sciences, seeks a visionary
faculty member for a full-time, academic year appointment, tenure-track
position to begin August 2013 at the rank of Assistant Professor in the
area of School Library Media. The LIS Program offers preparation for school
media specialist licensure in collaboration with the state Department of
Education and the Hawaii Teacher Standards Board. The successful candidate
will lead our highly ranked ALA accredited School Library Media Specialist
track.



Position Summary: This dynamic individual is expected to teach courses in
administration and instruction in K-12 school libraries that are required
for state licensure and maintain an active role in advising master's
students, supervising graduate internship experiences at K-12 school
placements, and participating in professional organizations at the state,
national, and international levels. This highly motivated individual will
exhibit the potential to become a nationally recognized researcher and
scholar in any of the following areas: school library media specialization,
digital media pedagogy, youth services in a networked world, online
learning, m-learning and educational technology. The ideal candidate will
develop a research program integrating elements of library and information
science with those of the ICS Department and related units across the
university to catalyze new knowledge. Research areas could include
indigenous knowledge, educational technology, cultural sustainability,
learning analytics, or information technology literacy and instruction.



The ICS department and the LIS Program are highly interdisciplinary and we
especially welcome applications from members of under-represented groups
working in these or other areas of library and information science with a
strong commitment to cross-disciplinary research and cultural diversity. A
primary goal of the LIS Program is to provide rich opportunities for
students to become future leaders within an expanding global information
environment. Through research, teaching and service, the ideal candidate
will support the LIS Program, the Department of Information and Computer
Sciences, the College of Natural Sciences and related units across campus,
and increase the breadth of our contribution to the University’s values: a
Hawaiian place of learning, a local to global perspective, sustainability,
technology, community and diversity.



Demonstrated teaching excellence is essential. The teaching load is two
graduate courses per semester with the option of summer teaching. Teaching
modes include face-to-face, and web-based synchronous and asynchronous
distance education. All faculty are expected to work with diverse
constituencies, teach in the core curriculum, teach using online and hybrid
modes, maintain a vigorous research agenda, meet expectations of tenure and
promotion, engage in interdisciplinary scholarship, and obtain funding.



Minimum Qualifications

Earned doctorate from an accredited university in Library and Information
Science, Education, or a related field; MLIS or equivalent from an
ALA-accredited institution; commitment to effective teaching; and poise and
good address for meeting and conferring with others.

AUSTIN, Texas—The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a
professor in the School of Information at The University of Texas at
Austin a $1 million grant to ensure that women’s perspectives and skills
are fully represented in the world of information technology,
particularly in terms of innovation and development.

The grant is part of a larger $9 million award to the National Center
for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT). School of Information
Research Associate Professor Lecia Barker is a Senior Research Scientist
for NCWIT and is co-principal investigator of the grant.

“Women made up less than 25% of the computing-related workforce in 2009
and they leave it at twice the rate of their male peers – a higher rate
than in other science and engineering fields,” said Barker.

“Underutilizing the human capital of women and under-represented
minorities in this critical workforce is damaging both to the nation and
to those left out, as their chances of entering one of these
fastest-growing and highest-paying careers are small.” Although some
progress has been made as of 2011, the current postsecondary graduation
rates in computing disciplines will fill less than a third of the
projected 1.4 million technology and computing jobs projected for 2018.

“The vision of a truly inclusive information society cannot be realized
until we ensure the full participation of all citizens,” said Andrew
Dillon, dean of the School of Information. “Lecia’s work is at the
forefront of efforts to provide working solutions to known problems in
attracting women into the information and computing disciplines and
keeping them there. It is an example of our School’s ongoing commitment
to shape a better information world for all."

Barker’s focus is on maintaining a strong knowledge base of leading-edge
research and practices for recruiting, retaining, and raising awareness
about girls and women in technology. She will synthesize existing
research studies, collect and analyze data, and build a community of
researchers to conduct original studies.

The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) is a
non-profit change leader network of more than 300 prominent
corporations, academic institutions, government agencies, and
non-profits working to increase women's participation in IT and computing.

In addition to this grant, Barker has also been awarded $187,000 to help
engineering and computing fields with the lowest graduation rates of
women at the bachelor’s level to attract a larger pool of women and
retain them through graduation. This is part of a larger $2.5 million
award to the University of Colorado, University of Virginia, and
University of Washington.

New San Jose Gateway PhD Program Alumna Pursue Careers in Academia

 

Cheryl Stenstrõm and Mary Ann Harlan are among the first individuals to
complete the  <http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/gateway-phd> San Jose
Gateway PhD Program, an innovative doctoral program that spans two
continents in a partnership between the San Jose State University School of
Library and Information Science (SJSU SLIS) and Queensland University of
Technology (QUT), one of Australia's top research institutions. 

 

Both new alumna of the San Jose Gateway PhD Program are pursuing careers as
library and information science (LIS) educators and already hold full-time
lecturer positions at SJSU SLIS.

 

Stenstrõm
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/people/community-profile/cheryl-strenstrom> 's
research as a doctoral student focused on library funding decisions by
public officials, a natural extension of her interest in solving library
leadership challenges. She shared her latest research on library leadership
during a presentation at the recent Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual
Conference. View the
<https://sas.elluminate.com/site/external/jwsdetect/nativeplayback.jnlp?sid=
2008350&psid=2012-10-04.1014.D.32691D41D7B6515C391DA51803E7E3.vcr> recording
(Blackboard Collaborate).

 

Stenstrõm's passion for exploring library leadership challenges grows out of
her experience serving in leadership positions in several public libraries,
most recently as the chief librarian and CEO of the South Shore Public
Libraries in Nova Scotia, Canada. Stenstrõm currently teaches courses for
students enrolled in the fully online
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/master-library-and-information-science-mli
s> Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program at SJSU SLIS,
including courses on reference services, program evaluation, and advocacy.

 

 
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/gateway-phd/gateway-phd-doctoral-student-p
rofiles-0/mary-ann-harlan> Harlan has a more than a decade of experience
serving as a teacher librarian, sparking her research interest in the
information seeking practices of teens. Her doctoral research examined how
teens create and share online content, including films, visual artwork,
music, and websites.  

 

"After four years, I was really pleased to share my research findings and
complete the doctoral program," said Harlan. "Now I'm looking forward to the
opportunity to use the knowledge I have gained in my teaching and in the
field."

 

Harlan teaches MLIS courses at SJSU SLIS on topics including library
resources for tweens, school library media centers, and instructional
strategies. She is also an alumna of the MLIS program at SJSU SLIS.

 

Stenstrõm and Harlan join
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/people/community-profile/diana-wakimoto> Diana
Wakimoto as the first three doctoral students to complete the San Jose
Gateway PhD Program, which admitted its first students in 2008. The doctoral
program uses a distance education model to serve students who work part time
or full time while earning their degrees. They receive guidance and
one-on-one mentoring from SJSU SLIS and QUT faculty.

Hi,

I'm a PhD student at Nanyang Technological University doing research in automatic summarization, supervised by Drs. Chris Khoo and Na Jin Cheon.

I'm looking for assessors to evaluate three types of summaries of research papers -- as part of my PhD project. The assessors should be PhD candidates, researchers or faculty in LIS or Computer Science. (PhD candidates should have passed their qualifying exams or proposal defense.)

*The task*
The task is to evaluate the quality of three summaries of research papers on a particular topic from JASIST, J. Doc. & JIS. Each task will take about 30 min.; each assessor will be requested to do 3 tasks (1.5 to 2 hours altogether).

*Payment*
I can offer a token payment of US$20 for the 3 tasks, to be paid to the assessor's Paypal account after receipt of the evaluations.

*The topics*
The summaries are on the following topics. You can indicate 3 topics as your preference - though I can't promise to assign you the topics of your choice.
- Attribution theory
- Citation analysis
- Collaborative filtering
- Creativity
- Digital library users
- Indexing
- Information architecture
- Information kiosks
- Information needs
- Information retrieval
- Interfaces
- Internet
- Journal usage
- Knowledge sharing
- Language translation
- Recommender systems
- Relevance
- Searchers, Searcher behaviour
- Taxonomy
- User behaviour
- Web searching
If you are able to help me with the evaluation, please drop an email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> with some background information about yourself. The research results will be anonymized in any publication, and the identity of the assessors and their background information will be kept strictly confidential and will be available only to me and my supervisors.

Thanks!
Kokil Jaidka

Public Services Quarterly's column, ÿÿFuture Voices in Public Services,ÿÿ 
is a forum for students in graduate library and information science 
programs to discuss key issues they see in academic library public 
services, to envision what they feel librarians in public service have to 
offer to academia, to tell us of their visions for the profession, or to 
tell us of research that is going on in library schools. We hope to 
provide fresh perspectives from those entering our field, in both the

This is a call for the Jean Tague-Sutcliffe Visiting Lecturer for 2013. This position honors the memory of Jean Tague-Sutcliffe, a long-serving Dean of the former Graduate School of Library and Information Science (now part of the Faculty of Information and Media Studies), acknowledging her far-reaching contributions to LIS scholarship and the mentoring of the many doctoral students who studied under her guidance. The full terms of reference for the position are attached.
 
Visiting Lecturers may be from anywhere in the world and will have recognized expertise in any area of research within the purview of Library and Information Science. 

Responsibilities consist of offering at least one lecture in the academic year for which the position is offered. Lectureships may be configured in a variety of different ways to suit the successful candidate, for example, a short-term stay with a single lecture or a longer-term stay with the possibility of teaching a course as a Limited Duties faculty member, dependent on applicant preferences, FIMS teaching needs and Program Committee approval, and subject to the provisions of the faculty Collective Agreement. 

Support provided through the Faculty of Information and Media Studies will be used to cover all expenses associated with each lecture including, but not limited to, organization, speakers and presentation costs, venues, promotion and hospitality. (Maximum of $2500.00). For those wishing to visit between May and August it may also be possible to subsidize the cost of accommodation in a university residence.
 
Candidates will submit a proposal and all proposals will be reviewed jointly by the MLIS and LIS Doctoral program committees. All proposals should be submitted by December 1st. Proposals should be submitted to Dr. Grant Campbell, LIS Program Coordinator ([log in to unmask]), and Dr. Nick Dyer-Witheford, Associate Dean of FIMS ([log in to unmask]).
 
Best regards,

Pam McKenzie

journeyed from establishing the chapter's charter just a year ago to
receiving recognition as the professional association's 2012 Student Chapter
of the Year.  

 

"I was thrilled to learn that our student chapter won this national award,
especially during its first year of existence" said Sarah Emmerson
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/people/community-profile/sarah-emmerson> , who was
the chair of the newly established student chapter. "We hit the ground
running in August 2011 to make a success of the student chapter from its
beginning."  

 

Emmerson worked with a team of fellow graduate students at SJSU SLIS to
reactivate the student chapter during spring 2011, and then launch the newly
chartered chapter in August 2011. In its inaugural year, the chapter created
an impressive array of resources and virtual networking opportunities for
SJSU SLIS students.  

 

Since the graduate programs
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/prospective-students/choose-your-program>  at SJSU
SLIS are fully online, and SLIS students live across the continent, the
ASIS&T Student Chapter held all its events online. They also created a range
of tools to support ongoing interaction for its members, including a
dedicated instant messaging channel, as well as a news feed and discussion
forum that are integrated into the School's online learning management
system.

 

During the 2011-2012 academic year, the ASIS&T Student Chapter hosted 14
online events; published four newsletters; created a website
<http://slisgroups.sjsu.edu/asistsc/> ; established social media presence on
Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube; and held 11 business meetings. The
student chapter's membership grew to 68 students by the end of its first
year, with more than 160 students following chapter news via its email
discussion list and more than 360 "likes" on its Facebook page.   

 

Webinars <http://slisgroups.sjsu.edu/asistsc/?page_idD9>  hosted by the
student chapter cover topics ranging from digital asset management, to
emerging technology trends, to careers in information architecture.
Recordings are freely available on the student chapter website:
http://slisgroups.sjsu.edu/asistsc

 

"I'm so proud of the 2011-2012 board members
<http://slisgroups.sjsu.edu/asistsc/?page_id4>  who worked hard to make
our student chapter a success," said Emmerson. "We met each new challenge
head on and were fearless in our determination to create a dynamic and
vibrant first year for the SJSU ASIS&T Student Chapter. I believe the
invaluable contributions, support, and dedication of every board member
helped us earn this award. They truly deserve this recognition."

 

The award will be presented at this year's ASIS&T annual conference, which
takes place on October 26-30, 2012, in Baltimore, Maryland.
