           Science: A Content Analysis / Trente et un ans de la Revue canadienne des
           sciences de l'information et de bibliothéconomie : une analyse de contenu
           
    • Abstract: The Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science / Revue canadienne des sciences de l'information et de bibliothéconomie (CJILS/RCSIB) is a scholarly journal started in 1976 and published by the Canadian Association for Information Science / Association canadienne des sciences de l'information (CAIS/ACSI), founded in 1971. It is Canada's oldest bilingual, scholarly journal in the field of library and information science (LIS), although there are other journals in the field published in Canada. The CJILS/RCSIB has been peer reviewed since 1986. More historical detail is provided by Nilsen (2007, 2010), who contributed important milestone analyses of the history of the CAIS/ACSI and of the association's annual ... Read More

  • Promises Made: An Interpretative Analysis of Canada's Public Library
           Legislation / Promesses faites : une analyse interprétative de la
           législation canadienne sur les bibliothèques publiques
    • Abstract: Search "Canada" "public libraries" and your first page of hits turns up links, keywords, and headlines covering the vast landscape of online interaction that merely hints at the complex business of the modern public library. From lending seasonal affective disorder lamps, musical instruments, carpenter tools, or wireless hotspots, to opening millennial, hip, architecturally award-winning, community living rooms in cities, towns, and villages in rural, northern, and urban Canada, to debunking fake news, or hosting live music concerts, or being embroiled in fiercely contested public debates around why someone can or cannot use the library's meeting room or the library's public Internet access, public libraries are ...

  • Digital Storytelling: An Opportunity for Libraries to Engage and Lead
           Their Communities / La narration numérique : une opportunité pour les
           bibliothèques d'engager et de diriger leurs communautés
    • Abstract: This article discusses the art of telling stories through digital media (Couldry 2008; Hartley and McWilliam 2009; Lambert 2013) as a new opportunity for libraries to exercise their capacity as community leaders, improve relationships with the public, and deliver enhanced services their communities expect. Specifically, the article describes a case study investigation of the "Love Your City, Share Your Stories" (LYCSYS) digital storytelling initiative in Hamilton, Canada, led by the Hamilton Public Library (HPL) in partnership with McMaster University Library (MUL) and the City of Hamilton's Tourism and Culture Division (TCD). The initiative involves the capture and dissemination of digital stories from ... Read More

           canadiennes, 1995–2017
    • Abstract: There is currently an urgency to the global public conversation about the nature of knowledge, information, and truth. In North America, we now hear neologisms such as "alternative facts," and we read articulate discussions about whether we live in a "post-truth" era (Illing 2018). Are people truly unable to distinguish fact from fiction in the news they follow' There is no doubt that developing the skills to find and evaluate information is as important as ever. Within the post-secondary context, it is primarily librarians who are relied on to lead the development of this skill set—that is, information literacy (IL). High-quality IL instruction remains critical to help students succeed academically and to ... Read More

  • Usability Evaluation of Learning Analytics: A Student-Centred Perspective
           / Évaluation de l'utilisabilité de l'analytique de l'apprentissage:
           Student-Centred Perspective : une perspective centrée sur l'étudiant
    • Abstract: Supplemental Material: click to download the Appendix.The widespread development of online teaching and learning and the introduction of numerous online courses and programs have presented new opportunities and demand for institutions of higher learning to develop new ways of monitoring and evaluating the online learning environment. Terms such as "educational data mining" and "academic analytics" as well as the more commonly adopted term "learning analytics" have been used in the literature to refer to the methods, tools, and techniques for gathering very large volumes of online data about learners and their activities and contexts. Learning analytics has more specifically been defined by the first International ... Read More

  • The Evolution of the Concept: A Case Study American Documentation /
           L'évolution du concept : une étude de cas tirée de American
           Documentation
    • Abstract: The concept has a central role and a rich history in knowledge organization. Ranganathan (1967) separated the concept from its name and also from its representation as a topic in writing; he called this an "isolate." Bliss (1929, 1–22) defined a concept as a subjective social construct associated with the form of likeness that constitutes a class. Dahlberg (2006, 12; 2011, 69) identified the concept as the central entity in the science of knowledge organization and, therefore, in its products—knowledge organization systems (KOSs). Beghtol (2010) wrote that classifications organize "things" by arranging "terms" that represent them. Hjørland (2009), appealing to activity theory, reminded us that a concept is a ... Read More

  • From Romance to Mysterioso: The Population of a Taxonomy of Topoi in the
           Eyl Collection of Silent Film Music / De la romance au Mysterioso : la
           population d'une taxonomie de Topoi dans la collection Eyl de musique de
           films muets
    • Abstract: Knowledge organization systems (KOSs) often engender a multiplicity of uses despite the circumstances of their domain-centric origins. This is particularly the case with the tools known today as taxonomies, which represent limited and tightly constrained conceptual lists representing the most essential elements of a specific knowledge base in a domain. Taxonomies might be designed to classify the contents of observations in a research domain, or they might be designed to facilitate the activities of a group in a work domain. Work-based taxonomies designed to support productive activity will demonstrate both specific actions and the circumstances surrounding their origin and use. At a basic level, we can say that ...
