  • Temporal Patterns of Searching in a Public Library Discovery System /
           Aspects temporels des habitudes de recherche dans l’outil de découverte
           d’une bibliothèque publique
    • Abstract: The rise of increasingly sophisticated discovery systems in libraries that integrate the library catalogue with digital repositories and collections and social media has created vast volumes of interaction and transaction data that can assist researchers and practitioners in understanding user search behaviour and search queries. In this article, the temporal search patterns using the data from the Edmonton Public Library (EPL) discovery system, a large urban library system in Alberta, are examined to develop insight into the information search behaviour of users of the EPL’s discovery system. This study focuses on the dynamics of time by examining how search queries change over time (hourly, daily, weekly ... Read More

  • Paraprofessional Library Education in Canada: An Environmental Scan / La
           formation paraprofessionnelle en bibliothéconomie: un portrait de la
           situation
    • Abstract: Historically, there is a significant difference in the educational focus of graduate degree programs and those at the diploma level within the library and information profession. Graduate-level library education is typically theory based and emphasizes research and knowledge advancement (Ingles et al. 2006, 113). Diploma-level studies provide training for library technicians and have historically focused on practical skill acquisition or those concrete skills required for successful employability (Canadian Library Association 1989, 3; Davidson-Arnott and Kay 1998, 555; Ingles et al. 2006, 113; Raju 2004, 77). Further, Raju (2004) describes the library and information professional, or librarian, as being involved ... Read More

  • Precision and Recall: An Ontological Perspective / Précision et rappel:
           un point de vue ontologique
    • Abstract: Dedicated to Edwin B. Allaire / Dédié à Edwin B. Allaire There is a traditional narrative within information retrieval studies that is familiar and oft repeated. People have information needs of various sorts relating to their lives and interests. Indexes establish searchable structures of concepts (the semantic aspect of the terms) that are contained in information items. Once an information need is translated into a query, the search statement can be addressed to these searchable data structures, such as a library catalogue or a database. The retrieval process begins at this point. The goal of information retrieval research for the most part has been to locate an isomorphic or atomic match between the ... Read More

  • Autopsie d’un commentaire : étude des métadonnées produites par le
           grand public dans le secteur culturel / Autopsy of a Comment: A Study of
           Metadata Produced by the Public in the Cultural Sector
    • Abstract: Si le tournant du siècle a représenté un âge d’or pour les métadonnées et des schémas de métadonnées ont été développés pour un grand nombre de domaines d’application, l’effervescence est depuis retombée (van Hooland et Verborgh 2014). Il est apparu que la création et la gestion de métadonnées représentent un investissement considérable en matière de ressources humaines. En outre, les sources de financement ont commencé à se tarir, à l’instar des programmes de financement de la Commission européenne qui ne financent plus la création de métadonnées depuis 2008 (van Hooland, Vandooren et M. Méndez Rodríguez 2011). Cette tendance, ainsi que le colossal volume de données à traiter, pousse les bibliothèques, archives ... Read More

  • La dynamique de la tablette : espaces culturels et modèles de médiations
           / The Tablet Dynamic: Cultural Spaces and Models of Mediation
    • Abstract: La société numérique a quelque peu modifié les paysages des lieux de l’information et plus particulièrement la bibliothèque, l’exemple en étant l’aménagement au sein de la bibliothèque d’espaces dits « numériques ». L’ensemble de l’offre numérique des bibliothèques s’organise autour de trois éléments fondamentaux : l’accès (espace numérique dédié), les ressources disponibles et les services traduisant un accompagnement à l’appropriation d’une culture numérique. Ainsi, la prise en compte par la bibliothèque de cette évolution est bien effective, elle montre les capacités de cette dernière à s’adapter aux mutations sociétales en matière d’usage du numérique. Servet (2009) cite une série d’initiatives lancées par ... Read More

  • Open Access among Canadian Library and Information Science Faculty /
           L’accès libre dans la communauté de bibliothéconomie et des sciences
           de l’information au Canada
    • Abstract: Open access has been both a mode of disseminating scholarly research and a topic of study in its own right for over two decades. One of the earliest, and perhaps most well-known, open-access projects emerged in December 2001 at a conference convened in Budapest by the Open Society Institute to discuss and seek ways to expand access to scholarly research. One of the key direct outcomes of this conference was the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI), which was the first internationally focused, formal statement to articulate a commitment to open access to scholarly literature. A range of additional statements particular to different disciplines and modalities of open access were also developed around this ... Read More

  • Practical Ontologies for Information Professionals by David Stuart
           (review)
    • Abstract: This book is published at a pivotal sea change in the history of library information and the history of ontologies. Todays’ information landscape is experiencing a flood of streamed data from new online social behaviours, leading to the existential crisis quoted by Stuart at the beginning of his book: “Drowning in information, but being starved for knowledge” (p. 1). Stuart demonstrates the importance of fighting information overload by the development of robust and widely used ontologies. Stuart’s aims in this book are threefold: first, to demonstrate the importance of ontologies for knowledge discovery to information professionals; second, to describe the important contributions information professionals ...

  • Linked Data for Cultural Heritage ed. by Ed Jones and Michelle Seikel
           (review)
    • Abstract: This short volume (134 pages) presents the basic concepts of linked data and linked open data and showcases projects making use of linked data in the library world. As the back of the book implies, many of these projects are still exploratory, in that they investigate the capabilities of the technology and have not yet broken out into mainstream use. This is a good read for near beginners to linked data. The concepts are explained clearly and illustrated with practical examples that definitively show the benefits of using linked data for organizing information. It is not a how-to book, however, as it focuses on concepts and existing projects. A reader looking for instruction on starting their own work with ... Read More
