  • AI and libraries: trends and projections

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Adetoun A. Oyelude
      Abstract: This paper aims to focus on the trends and projection for future use of artificial intelligence (AI) in libraries. AI technologies is the latest among the technologies being used in libraries. The technology has systems that have natural language processing, machine learning and pattern recognition capabilities that make service provision easier for libraries. Systematic literature review is done, exploring blogs and wikis, to collect information on the ways in which AI is used and can be futuristically used in libraries. This paper found that uses of AI in libraries entailed enhanced services such as content indexing, document matching, content mapping content summarization and many others. AI possibilities were also found to include improving the technology of gripping, localizing and human–robot interaction and also having artificial superintelligence, the hypothetical AI that surpasses human intelligence and abilities. It is concluded that advanced technologies that AI are, will help librarians to open up new horizons and solve challenges that crop up in library service delivery.

  • Scientific literacy, librarians and information literacy in the post-truth
           era

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Donna Ellen Frederick
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to challenge librarians to reconceptualize their professional self-image and practice so that it more closely aligns with the information science discipline that is part of the Masters of Library and Information Science degree. This column is primarily theoretical and philosophical but also draws on the author’s observations of trends and patterns in both librarianship and changes in information needs in recent years. Urgent, high-cost information needs created by COVID-19 and climate change coexist in a reality where technological change has made traditional librarian roles and functions less critical. By developing their information science skills and strengthening their professional identity as information scientists, librarians have the opportunity to address the urgent information needs of the day while remaining highly relevant professionals. Librarians will need to strengthen their science-related skills and knowledge and begin to promote themselves as information scientists. Librarians are in a position to make a meaningful contribution to two of the most pressing challenges of the day, climate change and dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. This paper is relevant to all librarians at any stage of their career. It will help them to reflect on both their skillset and career path and to make any needed adjustments so that they can remain relevant in a volatile and demanding information environment.

      Authors: Titilola Aminat Bayero Abdussalam , Janet Oluseyi Adewara , Jamiu Wankasi Abdulraheem , Tunde Toyese Oyedokun , Tawakalitu Raufu Balogun
      Abstract: Funding issues is observed to be the major stumbling block for the development of digital libraries in Nigeria. Hence, this paper aims to explore issues in obtaining and allocating funds for digital library development. The review is an explorative report of the state of affairs of digital library development in Nigeria with the associated fundraising issues. Digital library initiatives are coincidental development with transformational change in the technology-driven world of global information distribution. The desire of the information users to have better-unrestricted access to information becomes the hallmark of digital content development and web-based information services. The goal of making information accessible globally to large and diverse information users was achievable with the development of a digital library that provides enhanced information services, improves access and usability of digital information resources. The library of the future has already materialized in form of digital library services, but the cost of developing a digital library is not foreseeable cheap, and if Nigerian libraries are to achieve digital library service goal, alternative sources of finance need to be sought after through fundraising scheme from friends of the library, rental services, consultation fees and collaboration effort on library consortia as well as advocacy for open access initiatives.

  • Information-as-a-thing versus information-as-a-process: the legitimate
           differences between information resources management and information
           management

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tunde Toyese Oyedokun , Florence Onyenisi Otonekwu , Zainab Olanihun Ambali , Oluwafemi Joseph Fajonyomi
      Abstract: Information resources management (IRM) and information management (IM) are two distinct terms often used interchangeably in the literature as synonyms, but perhaps, they mean different things. It is worthy of investigation to clarify whether these two related terms are in fact synonyms, and if not, what line of demarcation does them apart, discussion of some underpinning common generalities and issues that compass their misconceptions. This is a significant gap in the literature that needs to be bridged to develop a common ground of what differentiates IRM from IM. It is a general review of the legitimate differences between IRM and IM. Information resources in the ambit of IRM cannot achieve anything except people do something with it either by examining, categorizing or describing it, but in the end, they understood, rebut, alter or do all sorts of manipulation to the data set or information. Meanwhile, all this interpretation and manipulation constitute the hallmark of IM. At this point, we need to take note of the fact that IRM is not the same as IM but rather IRM forms part of a holistic framework or components of IM. This is to say that successful IM cannot take place without proper IRM.

  • Improving services in a hybrid academic library system

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Adetoun A. Oyelude , Christopher Olumuyiwa Ola , Ezekiel Adelere Adeniran
      Abstract: This paper aims to describe a hybrid academic library system and to draw up a model of this system suggesting strategies and scenarios for achieving optimum performance of the system in a technology changing world. The mixture of traditional or manual ways of carrying out library operations with new, modern, automated systems often brings about several problems. The problems are ones that can be tackled within the framework of having appropriate systems dynamics routines applied and also making use of personnel skilled in strategic management of hybrid library systems. A system dynamics model for the management of the system is developed around the issues of personnel management, collection management, capacity building and provision of access to research materials, information technology infrastructure, forming of consortia and security in the system. Recommendations are made as to which strategy/scenario or combinations of scenarios will provide lasting solutions to the problems recurring or likely to reoccur in a hybrid academic library system.

  • “Through the looking glass: envisioning new library technologies” the
           scale of Facebook part 1: misinformation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Peter Fernandez
      Abstract: This column aims to explore the implications of Facebook’s size and reach to understand the role of massive social networks in our world, in general, and libraries, in particular. This column uses the example of misinformation to underscore the challenges endemic to connecting so many people under Facebooks particular business model. Facebooks massive size, combined with the nature of the parts of our social lives it connects to, means that it currently stands alone and raises unique questions about what it would take to make meaningful changes to it or any similar competitor that arises. Only by grappling with the dynamics of network effects on an organization of this size is it possible for informational professionals to understand the challenges and potential futures of massive social networks.

  • “Through the looking glass: envisioning new library technologies” the
           scale of Facebook part 2: global governance and legitimacy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Peter Fernandez
      Abstract: Understanding how the intersection of Facebook’s incentives and their potential misalignment with the values of libraries and society is likely to be a driving force in creating the technology of the future. This column examines different models Facebook has tried to resolve the legitimacy challenges raised by its massive scale. The misinformation example highlighted in the previous column and the XCheck controversy in this part underscore that an organization of Facebook’s size creates problems that may have similar dynamics to smaller social media companies or other large technology companies, but the resolutions to those problems might look very different. Navigating the challenges of this kind of social media will be one of the primary tests of how libraries deal with technology in the future and set the course for the technology that comes after.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nidhi Gupta , Rupak Chakravarty
      Abstract: This study aimed to visualize the trend topics in the research area of library and information science (LIS) in India during 1989–2021. The data was extracted from the Web of Science core collection database (WoSCC) database from 1989 to 2021. For creating the network visualization maps from the data, freely available softwares, VOSviewer (VV) and Biblioshiny (a Web-interface for bibliometrix), were used. Results support the prediction that in the future, Indian LIS research will focus on areas such as deep learning, machine learning, artificial intelligence and block chain technology. Among the most prolific authors Satija, M.P (Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar) and Prathap, G (APJ Abdul Kalam Technology University) secured top positions in LIS research. Scientometric ranked the top journal or the core journal after applying Bradford law. The visualization of trend topics in LIS research from 1989 to 2021, 32 years of time span, is the first of its kind.

      Authors: Sunil Tyagi
      Abstract: This study aims to measure the global research landscape on Pharmacovigilance (PV) indexed in the Scopus database for six years period spanning from 2015 to 2020. The study examines growth rate, author productivity and prominent authors, institutions and countries. The research literature on PV published globally and indexed in the Scopus core collection database was retrieved using the search string “pharmacovigilance” as per the Medical List of Subject Heading. A total of 1,272 documents were retrieved based on the query set. Quantitative and visualization technologies were used for data analysis and interpretation. Network visualization maps including research collaboration of authors, journals, institutions and countries were created by using the VOSviewer program. A total of 1,272 global scientific research output on PV were retrieved with an annual average growth rate of 21.70% and with a proportion of 3.84% compound annual growth rate. The relative growth rate for the world’s PV publications decreased gradually from the rate of 0.71 to 0.20. On the other hand, the doubling time (DT) of PV publications displays an increasing trend from the rate of 0.97 to 3.46. The mean relative growth and DT of PV publication for six years is 0.32 and 1.87, respectively.

      Authors: Vineet Jamwal , Simran Kaur
      Abstract: This paper aims to provide statistical information on the worldwide spread of the open-source research data management application, the Dataverse Project, to librarians, data managers and information managers who are considering using the application at their own institution. To produce a list of dataverse repositories, the official Dataverse website was evaluated, and JSON data were downloaded and parsed. Data standardisation was performed to assess the state of installations in various nations and continents across the world. Globally, the Dataverse repositories have seen a rise in overall installations. The year 2020 alone saw a 23.21% rise. In a country-by-country comparison, the USA (13) has the most dataverse installations, while Europe (25) has the highest number of installations worldwide. This research will be useful to librarians, data managers and information managers, among others, who want to learn more about Dataverse repositories throughout the world before deploying at their local level.

  • Will preprint servers disrupt scientific publishing, reference work and
           information science'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Donna Ellen Frederick , Donna Ellen Frederick
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to discuss whether preprint servers are a disruptive technology for science, librarians or information seeking among the general population. This column explores what preprint servers are, how they are used in the world of science, how their usage changed in response to the deluge of COVID-19 related research papers and how they might impact the work of librarians and society in general. Preprint servers are not a highly disruptive technology, but they do challenge both scientists and librarians to understand them better, use the information they find on them with care and educate society in general on topics such as peer review and the importance of using well-vetted, good quality science in making important decisions. Up until the past year and a half, only a small segment of the librarian profession needed to be concerned with preprint servers. With the increasing presence of references to non-peer-reviewed articles from preprint servers in popular media reports, most librarians now need to know something about this technology. It is also useful to consider how the technology might benefit and create challenges for their work.

  • Roles and emerging trends of academic libraries in Kenya

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Fredrick Otike , Ágnes Hajdu Barát
      Abstract: Due to globalization, digitization and advanced technology, academic libraries are experiencing a tremendous change in their role and operations. The purpose of this study is to critically examine and establish the emerging trends of academic libraries in Kenya; this study also highlights some of the critical roles of the academic libraries in relation to the emerging trends. This study adopted the literature review method to critically analyse and establish the various roles and emerging trends and issues in academic libraries in Kenya. This study established that change is inevitable and that academic libraries are supposed to adapt to the emerging trending trends and roles, lest their function and service become redundant. Due to the fact that library users’ information needs and information-seeking behaviour are changing, academic libraries are supposed to devise new and innovative ways of reaching out to their clients. This study has been able to comprehensively create a new viewpoint of the role and emerging trends of academic libraries in Kenya in regards to the changing and advancement of new technology.

  • Integrating research tools with library websites

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tanmay De Sarkar
      Abstract: The present investigation aims to measure the extent of the adoption of research tools among libraries of higher education (HE) institutes across the world based on the types of research tools and their diverse purposes of use. This study also intends to identify the current practices followed by the HE libraries to implement research tools. First, a stratified sampling method was used to select 130 HE libraries from four continents – Asia, Oceania, Europe and North America. Second, a two-step Web content analysis was followed to collect data from the selected libraries along the parameters chosen for the survey. This study gives an overview of the recent advances in the use of research tools by the libraries with numerous examples. Highlighting the differential rate of adoption of research tools across the regions, this study illustrates the degree of acceptance of research tools among the libraries. This study limits itself to a handful of libraries with English websites in four regions only to avoid the language limitation of the researcher. Inaccessible websites of libraries of HE institutes were also excluded from the survey. Future researchers may use the evaluation instruments as basic tools to develop advanced research instruments to carry out Web content analysis in diverse spheres. This study guides librarians to develop an improved understanding of the requirements of an immersive online environment with enhanced accessibility to a multiplicity of research tools and facilities to provide improved research support throughout the entire research life cycle.

      Authors: B. Preedip Balaji , Vinay M. S. , Anitha K. V. , Mohd Raqib Khan , Edwin E. , Shalini B.G.
      Abstract: This paper aims to examine integrated library systems (ILS) and web-scale discovery services (WSDS) of the National Institute of Ranking Framework’s (NIRF) top-ranked universities for the “Overall” category in the 2020 rankings. Further, the authors analyse how the ILS-WSDS transitions work in the academic libraries of higher educational institutions (HEIs) in India. The 200 top-ranked institutions in the NIRF rankings 2020 were chosen to evaluate their ILS-WSDS systems available through their library websites. Out of ten categories of NIRF rankings, the “Overall” category was selected as the institutions ranked under this category are discipline-independent and have a minimum of 1,000 full-time students in their undergraduate and graduate programmes. The authors found that Koha is a leading ILS with 52 libraries (26%), followed by LibSys with 18 institutions (9%), SOUL with ten institutions (5%), AutoLib with eight institutions (4%), VTLS and NewGenLib with four institutions each (2%) and SLIM with three institutions (1.5%). In regards to WSDS, 73 institutions use Knimbus (36.5%), followed by 12 institutions using EBSCO Discovery Services (6%), two institutions using Ex Libris Summon and others include LS Discovery, VuFind and independent platform each at 0.5%. At the core of technology adoption, for the ILS to WSDS transitions, the uptake is found to be rather slow. Many studies have explored ILS and WSDS India. However, this study attempts to assess the ILS in comparison with discovery services at academic libraries in the top ranking HEIs in India.

  • Application of tools to support Linked Open Data

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sujan Saha , Sukumar Mandal
      Abstract: These projects aim to improve library services for users in the future by combining Link Open Data (LOD) technology with data visualization. It displays and analyses search results in an intuitive manner. These services are enhanced by integrating various LOD technologies into the authority control system. The technology known as LOD is used to access, recycle, share, exchange and disseminate information, among other things. The applicability of Linked Data technologies for the development of library information services is evaluated in this study. Apache Hadoop is used for rapidly storing and processing massive Linked Data data sets. Apache Spark is a free and open-source data processing tool. Hive is a SQL-based data warehouse that enables data scientists to write, read and manage petabytes of data. The distributed large data storage system Apache HBase does not use SQL. This study’s goal is to search the geographic, authority and bibliographic databases for relevant links found on various websites. When data items are linked together, all of the data bits are linked together as well. The study observed and evaluated the tools and processes and recorded each data item’s URL. As a result, data can be combined across silos, enhanced by third-party data sources and contextualized.

  • The Brave browser: a monetary opportunity for libraries in the cryptoverse

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brady Lund
      Abstract: This paper aims to describe the benefits of the Brave web browser and its native cryptocurrency, the Basic Attention Token (BAT), for use by library patrons to preserve privacy and as a potential fundraising platform for libraries. The Brave browser and BAT are introduced, an analysis of trends in adoption of these technologies is discussed and an argument for libraries to adopt/promote these technologies is presented. Libraries could support the online privacy of their patrons if they encourage them to adopt the Brave browser, which is designed with privacy and security in mind. Libraries could also benefit from participating in the Brave Rewards program, which allows Brave users to donate BAT, a cryptotoken that they earn by viewing Brave ads, which can be traded for cash. To the best of the author’s knowledge, this paper is the first to discuss the applications of the Brave browser in libraries and the potentials of cryptocurrency adoption by libraries.

  • Developing a sustainable cultural heritage information system

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Gireesh Kumar Thekkum Kara
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to emphasize the need for developing an Indian cultural heritage information system (CHIS) where the cultural heritages can efficiently document, manage and preserve and integrate with a searchable user interface mechanism. Further, the study scopes out the feasibility of developing single-window comprehensive national CHIS for all the cultural heritage properties of India enlisted in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO’s) World Heritage list. Conservation efforts and their sustenance require the support of a knowledge base cum digital archiving and information retrieval tool. The present study identifies the basic requirements, strategies and the execution of designing a reliable information system for cultural heritage inheritances to safeguard them to facilitate access to the current and future resilient communities. Approach on issues and challenges associated while developing such an information system has also been addressed with possible recommendations. In India, even though regional level conservation efforts are occurring, no comprehensive information system, which gives the whole perspective of the item or environment of heritage site, has been developed for the heritage sites recognized by UNESCO in its World Heritage list from India. Developing such a comprehensive digital archive for cultural heritage helps to showcase its assets and ensures its visibility globally without hampering the physical form. Application Information and Communication Technology and digital technologies can extensively be used coupled with mechanisms such as mobile devices, digital systems and content visualization techniques to support the efficient and effective management in a systemized way. As a pilot study, this paper examined the cultural heritage properties incorporated in the UNESCO World list. There are many lesser-known and unprotected cultural heritages in different parts of the country having artistic value and the unique characteristics, and the possibility of building the similar kind of information system for them with innovative technological solutions are not covered under this study. Access to such an exclusive digital archive in a single-window platform would greatly support administrators, tourist departments, culture departments, development administration and conservation activists. The digital version of cultural inheritances created under the cultural heritage of India must have relevance to different subject fields such as history, archeology, manuscript logy, art, administration, knowledge management, computer science and library science. Also, it ensures that the resources remain accessible to the public without any restrictions provided with a comprehensive recapitulation. To the authors’ best knowledge, no such comprehensive system envisages or is practiced in the country. Developing such a system with technological and data infrastructure also helps to understand the value, support the activities related to cultural heritage and bring the local community to support and initiate such heritage conservation activities.

      Authors: Hero Khezri , Peyman Rezaei , Fateme Askarian , Reza Ferdousi
      Abstract: One of the great strides to develop a health information system is to define the requirements of the systems. This paper aims to identify and collect the requirements for designing a Web-based repository of evaluation tools for health-related software products. The current qualitative-review study is conducted in four phases including searching databases, reviewing websites and similar repositories, holding focus group discussions with a group of experts and determining the essential requirements for designing a Web-based repository, and also drawing the unified modeling language diagrams using Visual Paradigm software for displaying the necessities which were gathered. The requirements for designing a Web-based repository are provided in five main categories: technical, structural, content, legal and others. In general, creating a repository takes considerable time and effort, as well as going through the steps of the system’s life cycle. In this study, the first and the most significant step is creating an developing a reasonable system identifying the system requirements, which is successfully conducted. The requirements given in this study will be used in the next steps, which make use of programming languages such as PHP and HTML, so as to design a Web-based repository for health product software evaluation tools.

           challenges

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Magnus Osahon Igbinovia , Omorodion Okuonghae
      Abstract: Academic libraries are constantly adopting emerging technologies to deliver innovative services. A recent trend in technological innovation is the Internet of Things (IoT). Consequently, this study theoretically x-rayed the various ways in which IoT could be applied to academic libraries and the expected challenges associated with the adoption of the technology. This study used the review method to examine the application of IoT in contemporary academic libraries. This study explained the concept of IoT and went further to x-ray the application of IoTs in academic libraries as it affects critical aspects of the library operations, thereby justifying how IoT influences innovative service delivery. The peculiar challenges faced by academic libraries in developing countries were also discussed. This study’s value is reflected in the need to examine IoT adoption in academic libraries from the perspective of both developing and developed countries, where for certain reasons, the diffusion of new technology is relatively slow.

  • Opportunities for academic smart libraries in the Caribbean

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Adrian St. Patrick Duncan
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper hinged on the concept of smart libraries and their development for the furtherance of information access, dissemination and information resources and services delivery in Caribbean libraries. To conduct this research, the literature of smart libraries and technologically driven and their application in libraries were reviewed by examining existing literature on information and communication technologies and technology in libraries. The literature highlighted that this technological advancement is not yet fully on stream in academic libraries of the Caribbean owing to the lack of financial, technological and organizational resources. It further outlined that certain aspects of library automation are fostered through the inclusion of technology. The limitation of this study is that only academic libraries of the Caribbean region were assessed. Other regions should be explored in future research. The concept of smart libraries is an emerging issue with limited scope for scrutiny; a systematic and extensive review of recent research on smart in libraries is unavailable. This paper presents an overview of smart libraries or technologically driven libraries, its findings for potential research opportunities and development for academic libraries. In addition, it will build on the body of knowledge that is presently non-existent on smart libraries in the Caribbean.
