  • Big Data and Privacy:/Big Data et vie privée : Why Public Organizations
           Adopt Big Data/pourquoi les organisations publiques adoptent les données
           massives
    • Abstract: Governments collect data with three general ends in mind: to deliver, to delve, and finally, to decide. The first of those processes is prosaic and often transactional. To provide citizens with services, benefits, and tangible goods, government agencies frequently need information from individuals to determine what precisely is required and if the individual is eligible. This sounds simplistic (even inconsequential), but when one considers that such outlays represent almost 63% of the entire Canadian federal annual budget—a sum approaching $280 billion a year—the complexity and importance of rigor become evident (Receiver General of Canada, 2015). Accounting for programs and spending is important, as are due ... Read More

  • Barriers to Access and Information for the LGBTQ Community/Obstacles à
           l'accès et à l'information pour la communauté LGBTQ
    • Abstract: In 2013, Shawn Vaillancourt called on librarians to find ways to best serve the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (hereafter LGBTQ) community (Vaillancourt 2013). He explained that this group, regardless of progress, is still subjected to discrimination and harassment. LGBTQ youth especially are objects of bullying. He offered a variety of effective suggestions on service, all requiring proactive effort. Yet, to determine how best to serve the LGBTQ community, it is essential to understand what stands in the way of library services and, more broadly, information access.Joyce (2000) undertook the first notable literature review concerning the lesbian, gay, and bisexual community, but failed ...

  • Information Literacy Instruction in Canadian Undergraduate Science
           Education 2000–2015:/L'apprentissage des compétences informationnelles
           dans l'enseignement des sciences au premier cycle au Canada 2000–2015: A
           Literature Review/revue de la littérature
    • Abstract: This article reviews the peer-reviewed journal literature appearing between 2000 and 2015 covering information literacy in Canadian post-secondary undergraduate science education. This project was initiated by the Western Conference on Science Education (WCSE) held at The University of Western Ontario in 2011. The conference provided a forum for Canadian post-secondary science educators to share their teaching and learning experiences, with an outcome being "a review of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in post-secondary science in Canada" (The Western Conference on Science Education Organizing Committee 2011). "Science," as defined by the conference, includes the following subjects: mathematics, computer ... Read More

  • Ontological Data Sharing of Open Government Data for Data Curation/Le
           partage ontologique de données gouvernementales ouvertes aux fins de la
           conservation des données
    • Abstract: The purpose of this study is to inform ontological data-sharing practices in the cultural heritage community by using open government data for data curation. The research problem stems from the current rapid increase in the quantity of open government data in the cultural heritage domain. However, many cultural heritage open government data cannot be shared because those data are "stuck" in siloed, unstructured, and heterogeneous file formats, data formats, or Web addresses. For example, heterogeneous file formats range from MS Excel and HWP (Hangul Word Processor), to XML (eXtensible Markup Language), RDF (Resource Description Framework), and PDF (Portable Document Format) and to Web addresses simply linked to ...

  • Archives: Principles and Practices by Laura Millar (review)
    • Abstract: The second edition of Laura Millar's Archives: Principles and Practices is a welcome update to an important work. The first edition (2010) was awarded the Waldo Gifford Leland award (Society of American Archivists 2017, para.1), honouring "writing of superior excellence and usefulness," by the Society of American Archivists in 2011. Millar has made considerable revisions in this new edition, including major changes in the ordering and presentation of material. The structure of the book, along with a glossary and thorough index, will help readers to easily find the section, example, or template that they are looking for. It can be used as a reference without needing to be read cover to cover.The first section ... Read More
