  • Adoption of HRIS in the Public Organizations: Institutional Logics

    • Authors: Shabana Naveed, Aneeqa Suhail, Naveed Saeed Rana
      Abstract: This study explored the adoption, benefits, and challenges of HRIS in a public organization in Pakistan. Using the case study approach, qualitative data was collected through in-depth interviews at various levels in a hierarchy. The study found that the organization could not achieve the benefits of HRIS as established in the literature. The adoption of HRIS remained quite slow and resulted in parallel systems (manual and automated) in the organization. In light of institutional logics perspective, the organization is struggling with contradictory pressures from the new logic of HRIS and the previous logic of manual HR system, which is costly for the organization. Out of various barriers identified, in the adoption of HRIS, the most crucial are lack of top management support and less technical knowledge to use the new system. The findings implied that mere adoption of HRIS could not produce the desired results until serious efforts were made for its successful implementation.

  • Towards a New Service of University Libraries within COVID-19 Pandemic
           Time in Indonesia

    • Authors: L. Nurdin, A. S. Agusta
      Abstract: This research aims to understand new virtual services developed by Islamic university libraries viewed from the perceptions of library and information science students. The concepts of services and functions of libraries, social media, and virtual technology, are used to understand this objective. This research employs a qualitative method with data collection techniques covering online observation and interviews. Before determining the object of research, observations were made daily on local and national online newspapers, to get an overview of the phenomena of library services during the COVID-19 time. Online interviews employed Google forms reinforced by direct communication via WhatsApp and Phone Calls with several informants, to obtain and validate data through triangulation techniques. The data analysis employed Miles and Huberman analysis techniques, including data reduction, data display, and verification or conclusions. The results of this study show three main issues: firstly, general phenomena around educational issues of students, indicating various social practices from internal to the external environment. Secondly, library usage becomes based on access development to information resources, service innovation, library response, and intensity of library use. Finally, newly identified service developments cover innovations in social media, librarians before virtual cameras, virtual recreation functions, and library collaboration.

  • Communication Skills of Library Staff: A Cognitive Study of Turks Using
           Library Services in Canada

    • Authors: Elif Şeşen, Yasin Şeşen, Harun Şeşen
      Abstract: Throughout the historical ages, migration movements have occurred due to different reasons such as wars, internal disturbances, environmental disasters, economic depressions, technological developments, and education. Efficient integration of individuals into society as a result of migration depends on the development of a multicultural perspective. Libraries are among the leading institutions today in terms of recognizing different cultures. Libraries serve everyone in society without any discrimination. In multicultural societies, immigrants can quickly and easily access all kinds of information they need from cultural libraries and information centers so that they can adapt to their new places and get equal service in cultural and social fields. For instance Canada, which is an example of a multicultural society, people who have been in the country were interviewed in the study aiming to evaluate the communication skills of staff working in library services. The data obtained with the semi-structured interview technique were subjected to thematic analysis. As a result of the analysis, a total of seven sub-themes were determined with two themes, ‘Library Services' and ‘Communication Skills'.

  • A Service Support for Selection of E-Journal Subscription: An
           Evidence-Based Practice

    • Authors: Rohalia Mohd Rohani, M. K. Yanti Idaya Aspura, Shamsudin Ibrahim
      Abstract: The selection of an e-journal title is one of the challenging tasks for librarians in the process of collection development. As libraries receive a limited budget, librarians need to be careful and carry out thorough analysis based on the evidence-based approaches in selecting which e-journal to be subscribed. One of the different ways to analyse user demand for e-journals is to analyse access denied reports or known as turn-away reports from publishers. This study reports on how a support service was developed to select a new e-journal subscription for the National University of Malaysia (UKM) Library based on the COUNTER Journal Report (JR2). From this report, the number of access denied to full-text articles from four main commercial online databases; Science Direct, Springer Nature, Wiley Online Library, and Taylor & Francis were analysed. The Pareto Principle method was used to analyse e-journal titles that received high demand from library users. Profiling the journal's coverage in Scopus, Web of Science (WoS), and Journal Citation Reports (JCR) as well as mapping their subject and publisher's price was carried out. The results showed that from a total of 7,474 e-journal titles, 1,495 (20%) e-journal titles that received 132,008 (68%) number of access denied were selected for further analysis. This evidence service can help the Journal Unit, UKM Library in a selection of new e-journal titles based on library users' needs and assist the library management to make better decisions for e-journal subscriptions.

  • Citation Analysis of Information Management Graduates’ MPhil and PhD
           Theses in University of the Punjab, Lahore-Pakistan

    • Authors: Shahzada Nadeem Raza, Nosheen Fatima Warraich
      Abstract: This study aims to explore the citation patterns of information management graduates' MPhil and Ph.D. theses submitted at the University of the Punjab, Lahore-Pakistan. It examined their core cited information sources in terms of gender, class, year-wise distribution of citations, the average number of citations, and authorship patterns in their citations. It identified the list of core cited information sources with several citations used by research graduates.
      Citation analysis technique was used to determine the core cited information sources in 71 theses (60 MPhil and 11 Ph.D.) submitted to the Institute of Information Management (IIM), University of the Punjab (PU), Lahore, during the period of one decade 2008-2017. All 7013 identified references were examined and categorized in journals, books and books chapters, web-pages, theses, conference proceedings, reports, and newspapers.
      Findings showed that both male and female MPhil/Ph.D. graduates frequently consulted and cited periodical literature i.e. journals (58.71%) followed by books and book chapters (20.72%). On an average MPhil graduates cited 80.85 sources and Ph.D. graduates cited 196.55 sources in writing up their theses. The authorship pattern of the citations showed the highest number of citations from single-authored work. Data revealed that information behavior was the favorite area among research graduates. Bradford's law of dispersion was applied to determine the list of most-cited journals and books. This study would be helpful for information professionals to understand the information needs of their patrons and to make informed decisions for building demand-driven collections. The findings of the study may apply to other LIS schools in the developing world with similar contexts.
