  • Drupal, TEI and XML: How to prototype a digital humanities tool
    • Abstract: Library Hi Tech News, Volume 34, Issue 4, June 2017.
      Purpose This paper takes seriously the import accorded to the interface within the digital humanities. It will probe some of the possibilities and limits of the computer interface as a reading and research tool by unpacking theoretical and practical aspects of interface design. Design/methodology/approach We wanted to see if we could design a tool that would meet three interrelated goals: the first, was to develop a digital tool that would enable scholarship rather than mere publishing. Next, we wanted to build an interface that would acknowledge the situatedness of reading and meaning-making practices. Findings Our Research Oriented Design approach to interface design has shown us how valuable it is to combine research and practice when thinking through issues in the digital humanities. Engaging in such a design project provides the unique opportunity to bring together theoretical concepts relating interface design with robust tools like XML mark-up and Drupal modules. Originality/value There is literature on the subject of transformation of print documents to electronic text (Hayles, 2003) and the representation of text within a computer (Sperberg-McQueen, 1991), this projects attempts to build a prototype of what these theories might look like.

  • Emerging Information Standards and Technologies: Cataloging and Metadata
           Professionals’ Perspectives
    • Abstract: Library Hi Tech News, Volume 34, Issue 4, June 2017.
      Purpose Purpose: This paper reports on the survey results relating to the current experience of cataloging and metadata professionals with emerging information standards and technologies, as well as the state of professional training and existing barriers to continuing education in these emerging areas Design/methodology/approach Design/methodology/approach: The paper presents a quantitative analysis of the data collected in the online survey, supplemented with a qualitative analysis of some open-ended responses. Findings Findings: There was a wide interest in leveraging emerging Semantic Web and Linked Data approaches. Training activities on newer information standards and technologies were reported by more than half of the respondents. The survey data suggested the importance of increasing field-wide collaborations and institution- or organization-level support for professional development. Improving the discoverability of relevant continuing education resources and programs was also considered to be the key, as were affordability and the ability to incorporate ongoing learning into everyday practice. Originality/value Originality/value: There are currently no comprehensive studies or benchmarked data on how the existing continuing education system meets the needs of cataloging and metadata professionals. This study establishes a baseline for an understanding of their ongoing professional development preferences and requirements relating to new information standards and technologies.

    • First page: 13
      Abstract: Library Hi Tech News, Volume 34, Issue 2, April 2017.
      Purpose This article is an attempt to study the relationship between public libraries, literature festivals, and reading habits in Chennai and Bangalore to understand publishing, reading and the role of public libraries to improve reading and learning among public. Design/methodology/approach A field visit to a select book fairs and literature festivals in Chennai and Bangalore was undertaken in 2015 and 2016 to collect data. A pre-designed questionnaire was used for data collection at the festivals to establish the correlation among the libraries, bookshops, book fairs and literature festivals. A sample of (n= 445) was received from the respondents. Findings The findings suggest that 47 percent of respondents do not have any kind of library memberships and largely (n=154) respondents say they own an electronic device for reading. 25 per cent say reading books is one of the top leisurely activities and distance (31.7 percent) hinders people to visit libraries for reading. 80 percent agree visiting literature festivals influence and improve reading habits. Further, 48.4 percent read several times a week and 46.7 percent read 5 to 20 books in any year. 84 per cent agree that there is a significant link between a family's reading habits and a child's future attitude to reading. 74 percent agree that people who buy books from bookshops also borrow books from libraries and vice versa and endorse the fact that there is a strong relationship between book buyers and library visitors. Originality/value This is a unique exploration to connect the stakeholders—policy makers, publishers and libraries associated with reading as studies of this nature are rarely reported in India, when print and digital publishing is flourishing.
