  • A SCIENTOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF DESIDOC JOURNAL OF LIBRARY & INFORMATION
           TECHNOLOGY (2010-2014)
    • Abstract: Library Hi Tech News, Volume 33, Issue 7, September 2016.
      Purpose A scientometric analysis of DJLIT has been performed to find out the quality, popularity and impact of the International Journal published by DESIDOC. Design/methodology/approach Scientometric analysis of five volumes (from Volume No. 30 to 34) from the year 2010 to 2014 of DJLIT covering thirty issues containing 307 contributions, was performed. All the bibliographic details were noted and recorded in tabular form for the purpose of in-depth analysis. Based on the analysis of the recorded data, findings have been presented. Findings The study shows a trend of gradual growth in contributions published during the period of study with an average number of 61 contributions per volume of the journal. The maximum number of contributions/research papers (70) were found to be published in the year 2012 while the minimum (50) in the year 2010. The study reveals that DJLIT gives maximum importance to the original research papers for the purpose of publishing, which attained top position of publications with a total of 277 (90.23%). The maximum number of contributions during the period of study are from joint authors with a total of 188 (61.24%). The maximum number of contributions are from India with a total of 273 (88.93%). New Delhi, Maharashtra, and Karnataka were found to be the biggest domestic contributors during the period of study with 68 (24.91%), 39 (14.29%), and 30 (10.99%) contributions respectively. It appears that the coverage of DJLIT, even being an International Journal in the field of LIS, is not very broad and its scope is broadly confined to the India only. Majority of authors preferred journals as their major source of information providing highest number of citations totaling 2447 (51.89%) while websites attained second position with 1015 (21.52%) citations followed by books with 613 (13%) citations. The study further reveals that the maximum number of citations totaling 1109 (23.52%) out of 4716 were received in the year 2013 while the least citations totaling 700 (14.84%) were recorded in the year 2010. One of the most important quality of DJLIT is that it has great concern for emerging and new tools, techniques, and technologies in the LIS profession and their impact and application in the field. The journal regularly publishes special issues in every volume on such themes that have great impact on the LIS profession and it has published 16 special issues on various important themes during the period of study. DESIDOC Journal of Library and Information Technology (DJLIT), having free online access through Internet, is the highly preferred journal for communication, knowledge acquisition, and reference by the Library and Information Science professionals. The journal has great potential of attaining new heights of popularity and impact all over the world in Library and Information Science profession. It is suggested that the journal should try to get high quality papers from foreign authors too which may be useful in enhancing its global impact and reputation. Research limitations/implications The present study is confined to the data collected from thirty (30) issues of the five (5) volumes of the DJLIT from the year 2010 to 2014 while the journal is continuously being published since the year 1981. Hence, the results may vary if the studies of different blocks of the years of publication of the journal are performed. The present study may not be fully representative in all the results but it gives a trend regarding publication of the DJLIT. Originality/value Scientometric analysis of journals have been attempted in a very few numbers. Hence, the present study will be a source of idea to other researchers.

  • Library automation with cloud based ILMS Librarika: case study of Central
           University of South Bihar
    • Abstract: Library Hi Tech News, Volume 33, Issue 7, September 2016.
      Purpose The paper attempts to carry out an evaluative study of the cloud based integrated library management solutions (ILMS): Librarika. Design/methodology/approach An evaluation checklist was designed from the review of existing ILMSs as well as literature review. The checklist was distributed to the library staff of Central University of South Bihar. Findings Librarika was found to be comparable with existing open source ILMS but lacked transparency of data. Librarika had all the features of the commonly available open source ILMSs like KOHA. However, respondents pointed out that Librarika had a better circulation module and OPAC features compared to other ILMs. Concerns over data ownership, migration, and portability in the cloud were considered as the major bottlenecks in its adoption. Practical implications The study will help other libraries in decision making who are considering Librarika for their ILMS solutions. Originality/value Till date no any evaluative study has been carried out on any cloud based ILMS solution.

    • First page: 5
      Abstract: Library Hi Tech News, Volume 33, Issue 6, August 2016.
      Purpose This paper attempts to understand e-books’ popularity in India and the potential of mobile devices to reach huge number of readers due to content absorption through mobile phones and iPods. Design/methodology/approach To accomplish the goal of this study the author used a mixed method of study: an analysis of the academic literature, data collection through personal interaction, questionnaire survey, and library web site to understand users’ perceptions on potential of mobile devices on access to content, and appraised on mobile friendly services in libraries and strategies for promoting mobile content and best practices Findings The mobile age has brought tremendous scope for reading on low cost mobile devices which are within the reach of almost every Indian and incorporated optimism in a highly populated country like India. The technology and expertise for digitisation in India correlate with not only digital savvy but also multimedia and animation skilled work force, altogether developed an ecosystem favourable for e-book production. Originality/value The literature on e-books in India is scanty, although there is handful of case studies on academic libraries conducted by librarians but no systematic large scale research on initiatives, advocacy programs and promotional process to improve the overall scenario, this article is an attempt to fill the gap

  • Using a blog and social media promotion as a collaborative community
           building marketing tool for library resources.
    • First page: 13
      Abstract: Library Hi Tech News, Volume 33, Issue 5, July 2016.
      Purpose The purpose of this report is to explain the process of how Booth Library developed an online Wordpress blog in order to market physical and electronic resources in the library’s collection. This report looks at specific tools that are used to maintain the blog and sample topics that the blog covers. Design/methodology/approach WordPress software was installed on library servers, making the blog a cohesive part of the library’s website. A PHP script called “List It!” was developed in order to produce book lists with cover images from a list of scanned library barcodes. After the book lists are inserted into blog posts, social media tools such as YOURLS and Hootsuite are used to schedule tweets and Facebook posts. Findings Since its launch in September 2014, Ref News has received 6,180 total views and 3,835 unique views for 88 posts. On average, users are spending 2 minutes and 44 seconds on a page or group of pages. Less measurable benefits include greatly expanded website content, booklists that can be reused and repurposed, and a sense of ownership and increased morale for those who help curate book displays and write blog posts. Originality/value This report shows how a free WordPress blog can be used as a versatile, collaborative tool to market library resources and connect with users.
