  • The Updating of ISBD and its transformation

    • Authors: Elena Escolano Rodrìguez
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: This article describes the difficult work of revising the ISBD standard. It reviews the previous work and the conceptual and structural problems found in the process of updating the ISBD standard. After the recognition of the difficulties in debates, two points of view were distinguished among the members of the group that ended with the split of the ISBD Editorial Group into two subgroups. The article also gives an account of the changes carried out in the updating of the content of ISBD, to end with the discussion topics of the second working group that will change the structure of ISBD as we know it today

  • Artificial Intelligence Systems and problems of the concept of author.
           Reflections on a recent book

    • Authors: Maurizio Lana
      Pages: 13 - 44
      Abstract: The publication of the book Beta Writer. 2019. Lithium-Ion Batteries. A Machine-Generated Summary of Current Research. New York, NY: Springer, produced with Artificial Intelligence software prompts analysis and reflections in several areas. First of all, on what Artificial Intelligence systems are able to do in the production of informative texts. This raises the question if and how an Artificial Intelligence software system can be treated as the author of a text it has produced. Evaluating whether this is correct and possible leads to re-examine the current conception for which it is taken for granted that the author is a person. This, in turn, when faced with texts produced by Artificial Intelligence systems necessarily raises the question of whether they, like the author-person, are endowed with agency. The article concludes that Artificial Intelligence systems are characterized by a distributed agency, shared with those who designed them and make them work, and that in the wake of the reflections of 50 years ago by Barthes and Foucault, it is necessary to define and recognize a new type of author.

  • The role of the Wikidata librarian in a renewed Bibliographical Universe:
           “next generation metadata”, next generation librarians

    • Authors: Alessandra Boccone
      Pages: 45 - 57
      Abstract: Starting from a brief analysis of the OCLC Research report "Next generation metadata", the contribution proposes a reflection on the librarian metadata and the new centrality of its role in the LIS; among the various declinations that can assume such professional figure, One of the most interesting is the Wikidata librarian, of which a first definition is outlined. Following some international experiences of the use of Wikidata as a tool for new working methods, already consolidated in many library institutions, and as a particularly suitable environment for experimentation, thanks to its features of open, free, collaborative, easy to understand and use system. While information professionals and a large part of the academic and scientific environment have understood the potential of Wikidata, some weaknesses of this instrument have been highlighted, which must be corrected and recalibrated in the name of universally accessible and reusable knowledge, also taking into account the requirements contained in the Semantic Web Manifesto by the Cataloging and Indexing Study Group of the Italian Association of Libraries.

  • Analysis and data visualization in bibliometric studies

    • Authors: Joel Alhuay-Quispe, Alonso Estrada-Cuzcano, Lourdes Bautista-Ynofuente
      Pages: 58 - 73
      Abstract: In recent years, academics with different professional formation other than Information Sciences have been involved in research related to metric studies using approaches and techniques based on bibliometrics; however, these professionals do not have knowledge and necessary competences for conduct metric information studies in a rigorous and methodical way. This article aims to find what are methods and tools used by bibliometrics researchers through a descriptive and textual analysis, using methods such as word co-occurrence in bibliographical data extracted from scientific articles indexing in Web of Science, research area "Library & Information Science." We find most frequently software and tools used in bibliometrics have four levels for data treatment: recovery, preparation, processing and analysis, visualization; and use different methods analysis: networks social, geospatial, thematic, temporal, bibliographic coupling, among others.

  • Voluntary Transparency in Spanish University Libraries

    • Authors: Ana R. Pacios, Margarita Pérez Pulido, Marina Vianello
      Pages: 74 - 91
      Abstract: The research reported here aimed to ascertain the degree of transparency exhibited by Spanish public university libraries based on their active public disclosure practice. Transparency was measured by applying the TransPa_BA tool to the transparency-related information published by the country’s 50 public university libraries on their websites. The tool addresses 21 indicators grouped under eight areas, used in this study to measure university libraries’ public disclosure performance. The data collected were scored pursuant to the provisions of Spanish Act 19/2013 of 9 December on Transparency, Access to Public Information and Good Governance as adapted to university libraries, as well as in terms of other factors scantly developed in or omitted from the Act. The indicators and their respective parameters (content, form, accessibility, reusability, dating and updating or validity) constitute guidelines enabling libraries to enhance transparency and accountability by reporting their activities and practice in key areas to society in general and their stakeholders in particular. The objective is to help such institutions operate more transparently, for the information afforded by the indicators is deemed relevant to their activity while also monitoring their performance. The findings show that university libraries, which have become more transparent over time, are more transparent than other information units (national public libraries and historic and university archives). Some were nonetheless found to have room for improvement. On the grounds of their scores, these libraries can be classified under three headings: transparent, translucent or opaque. The parameters where good practices were most frequently identified included service usage rules and regulations, user charters and the annual report.

  • Institutional repositories and copyright in Greek academic libraries

    • Authors: Konstantinos Kyprianos, Ekaterini Lygnou
      Pages: 92 - 112
      Abstract: Institutional repositories were created to collect, preserve, and make available the academic institution's scientific output. The purpose of this study is to investigate and illustrate how Greek academic libraries with institutional repositories deal with copyright challenges. The study aims to identify and describe if institutional repository managers apply a certain copyright clearance protocol, the problems they encounter, and how they deal with them. For this study, a quantitative research method based on questionnaires was employed. The questionnaire consisted of twenty-nine (29) questions separated into three (3) sections and was sent to thirty-one (31) academic libraries. According to the survey results, the majority of academic libraries have an institutional repository and provide open access to its content. It was found that academic institutional repositories face intellectual property difficulties. The biggest issue highlighted was a lack of knowledge of the notion of copyright. Finally, communication amongst libraries seems to be the foundation for developing a common policy and addressing the difficulties that have arisen in institutional repositories as a result of Greek copyright legislation limits.

  • “Yomi” (readings) in bibliographic data for materials in
           Japanese

    • Authors: Kazue Murakami
      Pages: 113 - 127
      Abstract: In bibliographic and authority data of materials in Japanese, it is necessary to represent kanji (Chinese characters) and its reading as a pair. Readings, called “yomi” in Japanese, are represented in katakana or the alphabet (romanization form). The readings in Japanese language have many variations depending on the context, so Japanese bibliographic information needs to provide both kanji and its reading as a pair to avoid misunderstandings.
      The JAPAN/MARC is a machine readable version of the Japanese National Bibliography and provides sets of kanji, katakana-yomi and romaji-yomi (romanization form) of bibliographic and authority data. This paper introduces how readings of bibliographic and authority data in Japanese have been expressed and handled mainly in JAPAN/MARC, compared with international standards.

  • Others’ Books, Catalogues of our own: non-roman scripts in SBN

    • Authors: Oscar Nalesini
      Pages: 128 - 142
      Abstract: The catalogue of the Italian National Library System (SBN) is a roman-script-only database. Local libraries, on the other hand, are facing requests from an increasing number of users from other countries, and are filling the gaps of the national system by developing isolated, non-collaborative ways to manage resources in non-roman scripts. Though a couple of Institutions have recently, but independently each other, developed projects to catalogue resources in native scripts, it is still impossible to predict when this feature will be finally implemented. In the next future, Italian cataloguers will therefore still rely on romanization only. After having briefly reviewed the romanization methods recommended by the Italian cataloging rules (REICAT), the article suggests to expand its repertoire by establishing a method for identifying the most suitable romanization standards.

  • Covid, document production and administrative efficiency: a case study

    • Authors: Francesca Parisi, Roberto Guarasci, Roberto Elmo
      Pages: 143 - 155
      Abstract: The article outlines the document production process in some Italian research institutions and compares it to the same pre-pandemic time span by analyzing whether or not the work organization models that have been adopted have had an impact on the completion time of administrative procedures. The aim was to verify the trend of the performance indicators after the pandemic impact and how the absence of employees at work may have influenced the organizational models. Within specific administrative realities, human relationship is often a pillar to carry out activities correctly. The transition to the management of remote procedures carried out totally in digital form caused inevitably important consequences on the expected results.

  • A new archives definition

    • Authors: Gianni Penzo Doria
      Pages: 156 - 173
      Abstract: This paper aims to give a new definition of the word “Archives” as a result of an accurate survey of doctrinal orientations on this specific subject, analyzing - word by word – each particular lemma which makes up the new proposal. Even though there is no definition that is valid in every context, but archival theory seems to suffer largely from a heterogeneous vision, downstream of a rigorous scientific journey, but dense of conceptual and lexical unexpected contingencies. Each term - with meanings and contexts - does not constitute a simple signifier, but refers to a specific baggage of every disciplinary and cultural tradition. For these reasons, we will attempt to provide an overview of the definitions of archives, from the particular to the general.

  • Artists' archives

    • Authors: Dimitri Brunetti
      Pages: 174 - 188
      Abstract: In the last few years, artists' archives have gained a central role in the debate on the nature, treatment and valorization of 20th century and contemporary archives. They are fascinating and precious aggregations, characterized by a plurality of documentary typologies and by specific requirements for their description. Starting from the definition of personal archives, the paper proposes a definition of artists' archives and then attempts to indicate their main characteristics, contents and elements of complexity. Finally, the paper attempts to establish a dialogue between archivists and artists, collectors, gallery owners, critics and curators in order to find common elements and differences in their actions. -

  • Certification and preservation of artworks in digital environments

    • Authors: Concetta Damiani
      Pages: 189 - 202
      Abstract: Reflecting about the documentary heritage of artists requires the consideration of archival, legal, historical-artistic and museological factors. If the analogue productions of artifacts and the correlated documentation have been studied, transferring the creative perspective into a digital environment asks to face a reality in turmoil: the ways of expressing and representing contemporary art, in balance between digital and crypto art, require new visions in the production and management of works. In this redefinition of roles and relationships, which almost exclusively concern the documentary structure and the technological and digital components, document systems assume a primary role.
