  • CJILS Editorial / RCSIB éditorial
    • Abstract: I took over as editor of the Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science (CJILS-RCSIB) on November 1, 2015 and resigned on May 31, 2019. During that time, I had the honour and privilege of reading many wonderful manuscripts (and, if I must be honest, some that were not so wonderful) and working with great people. Many thanks to the people at the University of Toronto Press, various CAIS boards, my fantastic editorial board members, reviewers, and supporters. Without you all, there would be no Journal.During my tenure as editor, I worked hard to increase the international readership and impact factor of the Journal, while still maintaining its unique position as the only Canadian journal in the LIS field. ...

  • Detecting Clickbait: Here's How to Do It / Comment détecter les
           pièges à clic
    • Abstract: Writing attention-grabbing news headlines has long been viewed as an art form and a skill in journalism (Frampton 2015). Nowadays, the success of each headline in digital news is directly monetized via social media user engagement metrics such as clicks, shares, likes, or views, and such engagement drives web traffic and revenue for many digital news organizations. The business model of this kind incites content producers to be ever more creative with hyperlinks and the relationship between the headline hyperlink and the actual body of the article at the end of the clicked hyperlink. Many digital news organizations such as "Quartz, The Huffington Post, and Upworthy expend significant effort into crafting headlines ... Read More

  • Le rôle des réseaux sociaux dans la communication de marque des
           hôpitaux canadiens / The role of social networks in brand communication
           in Canadian hospitals
    • Abstract: La création et diffusion d'une image de marque solide et réputée constitue une priorité stratégique pour tous les hôpitaux. La marque aide ces organisations à établir des rapports de confiance avec leurs intervenants (patients, médias, autorités publiques, etc.), à attirer des patients et des employés, à renforcer le positionnement stratégique de l'hôpital et, donc, à garantir sa survie comme organisation dans le moyen et long terme. Les organisations hospitalières doivent renforcer leur marque pour ainsi répondre efficacement aux nouveaux changements qui ont lieu dans le milieu sanitaire, comme les exigences grandissantes des patients, l'augmentation du nombre d'informations médicales diffusées sur Internet ...

  • Public Libraries Serving Immigrant Communities in Canada / Bibliothèques
           publiques servant communautés migrantes
    • Abstract: The role of libraries in facilitating the settlement of immigrant communities has been widely documented (Blasco 2014; Burke 2008). From the provision of services and resources to serving as neutral spaces for people to meet and collaborate (Lashley 2017), the library is increasingly invaluable in the lives of immigrants, people who live temporarily or permanently in a country where they were not born but have acquired some significant social ties to that country (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization 2017). It is no surprise, therefore, that an increasing number of immigrants walk through library doors as a crucial step towards integrating into the new society (Kumaran and Salt 2010). ... Read More

  • Pratiques informationnelles dans un centre de documentation : contexte,
           espace et dynamique de parcours / Informational Practices in a Resource
           Centre: Context, Space, and Course Dynamics
    • Abstract: L'avènement d'Internet et la démocratisation des plateformes mobiles de communication (Wallace, Clark et White 2012 ; Wang, Xiang et Fesenmaier 2014) ont favorisé l'émancipation des pratiques informationnelles des personnes face aux bibliothèques et centres de documentation en tant que sources physiques (Chan-Olmsted, Rim et Zerba 2012)1. Pour ces derniers, demeurer une référence pertinente en matière informationnelle constitue donc un enjeu central (Urban Librairies Council 2001).Il est intéressant de s'attarder ici au cas des jeunes adultes, des utilisateurs assidus des plateformes mobiles pour chercher de l'information (Axelsson 2010 ; CEFRIO 2015 ; Lenhart et coll. 2010) non seulement sur la formation et ...

  • Emerging Trends in IS Research: A Co-word Analysis (2007–16) / Tendances
           émergentes en recherche en systèmes d'information : une analyse de
           cooccurrents (2007–16)
    • Abstract: The ability of human beings to generate, accumulate, distribute, organize, and synthesize knowledge has served as a major factor in the development of civilization. Thus, it becomes important to know what constitutes a science before progress can be made. Systematized knowledge serves to differentiate fields from one another—that is, to distinguish one science from another (Foucault 2013). Conversely, a field or discipline is distinguished by an identity consisting of relationships between knowledge elements that have been shown to be related in some systematic fashion. These disciplines, especially in information systems (IS), provide the mechanism for the growth of new knowledge by communication—for example ... Read More

  • Knowledge Production Ethos and Open Access Publishing: Africa in Focus /
           L'éthos de la production de connaissances et l'édition en livre accès :
           Regard sur l'Afrique
    • Abstract: Open access publishing is predominantly concerned with how to facilitate timely and equitable access to knowledge, particularly for publications in periodicals, through the World Wide Web free of charge to readers. However, dominant opinions and frameworks for understanding knowledge production are cosmopolitan and mainstream, often neglecting the differences in the contexts in which other researchers and publishers work. Dominant knowledge production ethos reflects the global disparity in the growth and development and benefits of open access and, further, has given rise to a mutation in the mission and philosophy of open access.This article examines open access from the viewpoint of a neo-liberal science ...

  • Sharing Resources amid Technological Scarcity: A Sketch of Historical and
           Current Resource-Sharing Practices in Cuba / Le partage des ressources
           malgré une rareté technologique : portrait du partage de ressources
           actuel et historique à Cuba
    • Abstract: The impetus for this study was a conversation between colleagues. One author had the good fortune to participate in a delegation of LIS professionals to Cuba to visit LIS institutions and meet counterparts. On return, she remarked admiringly on how the Cuban LIS professionals relied heavily on informal knowledge networks to meet patrons' needs; in fact, sometimes the only route was to pick up the phone to call experts to identify resources in other libraries. The second author, an electronic resources librarian with a background in history and a knowledge of, and experience with, metadata and resource sharing, wondered about union catalogues, and this led to exploring the development of Cuban library systems.To ...

  • Information and Society by Michael Buckland (review)
    • Abstract: Avec la montée sans cesse croissante des technologies, la société de l'information connait un nouvel essor. Les modalités de la création, de la gestion, de la circulation et de la préservation de l'information ont changé. De surcroît, les institutions de mémoire, dont les bibliothèques, s'emparent de nouveaux outils pour mener à bien leur mission dans la démocratisation de l'accès à l'information. Le présent ouvrage s'inscrit dans ce courant de pensée. Michael Buckland, professeur émérite en bibliothéconomie à l'Université de Berkeley, expose les principales mutations de la société de l'information de nos jours, en projetant la lumière sur les différents rapports qu'entretiennent les individus avec l'information. ...
