  • The Impact of Information and Communication Technology on the User
           Services Division of the Forde Library of University of the Southern

    • Authors: Anastasia Mulraine-Campbell et al.
      Abstract: This study seeks to assess the user frequency and impact of ICT on the performance of the User Services Division, with specific insight on the Circulation, Reference and Instruction Units of the Forde Library. The impact of ICT was measured using cluster-based sampling given to 340 undergraduate students, with a return rate of 62% - 211 students. The analysis revealed a significant lack of awareness and usage of the ICT offerings. Exceptions to low usage and awareness were the OPAC and the Library’s Website. The main factors that impacted the low awareness and usage were limited marketing, no knowledge of ICT offerings, no need for the offerings and complications experienced while using the offerings. Overall, the benefits of the ICT offerings were not recognized by the sample size and as such, lower scores of relevancy, ease of use and user-friendliness were recorded. Recommendations focused on marketing, training, and interdepartmental collaboration.

  • Towards a Biblical Foundation for a Philosophy of Library Sociality

    • Authors: Terry Dwain Robertson
      Abstract: In this essay, I focus on the sociality of librarianship in the academic setting. How should we as library workers think about the communities we serve' What mindset should guide our interactions with the people who seek our services' How should library workers think about how we collaborate to serve our public' As a profession, librarianship has a solid public service orientation, evidenced by its best community outreach, advocacy, and hospitality practices. Can Biblical teachings emphasized within the Seventh-day Adventist faith community be foundational for this ethos' Does faith integration matter' Correlating insights from Tuomela on group agency, Lankes on the mission of librarians, and the Biblical teachings on Discipleship, Second Coming, and Sabbath, I suggest the integration of work and faith is evidenced by a dispositional orientation that finds expression in a we-mode library sociality.

  • School Libraries Should be Equipped to Operate in the Virtual Space

    • Authors: Denise Hunter
      Abstract: Since the Covid-19 Pandemic, online activities have increased exponentially. Public and school libraries have expanded their offerings and increased their online presence to ensure that patrons continue to access their services. Our school libraries in the Caribbean have not been given the attention they deserve and so are not equipped to function in the online world. Many kept their doors closed or the space reassigned for other activities. In instances Librarians have been assigned other tasks and information literacy skills placed on hold. In this time of online presence, our school libraries and librarians have a role to play in assisting our students navigate the information highway and to develop their literacy skills. There is also the likelihood that many online services will continue after the pandemic. Our school librarians and libraries in the Caribbean should be prepared to operate in the virtual space.

  • Poetry, Sort Of: My Experience Using Library of Congress Subject Headings
           and the Supplemental List of Seventh-day Adventist Subject Headings

    • Authors: Daniel J. Drazen
      Abstract: The Library of Congress Subject Headings, for all its seeming comprehension, has not always been up to the task of covering Seventh-day Adventist subject matter better than the Supplementary List of Subject Headings published by the Loma Linda University Libraries as used by the Seventh-day Adventist Periodical Index. More important, there has been, and continues to be, a need to coin new terms as they are needed. To rely primarily on one source for assigning index terms, however comprehensive it might seem generally, is too inflexible a strategy to be realistic. Relying on both the LCSH and the SLSH is the preferred method of indexing Seventh-day Adventist periodical articles.
