  • How Information Science Helped to Shape the Emerging Field of Terminology
           in Canada (1973–81) / Comment la discipline des sciences de
           l’information a-t-elle contribué à l’évolution de la discipline
           émergente de la terminologie au Canada (1973–81)
    • Abstract: There is a relatively new field of linguistic activity known as terminology. As described by Juan C. Sager (1990, 2), “terminology is the study of and the field of activity concerned with the collection, description, processing and presentation of terms, i.e. lexical items belonging to specialised areas of usage of one or more languages.” Terminology is often generally understood in contrast to lexicography. Whereas lexicographers compile dictionaries containing words from the general language, terminologists prepare glossaries of terms from specialized domains of knowledge. Discussions about the need for such a field of activity began to surface as far back as the 1930s, when an Austrian engineer named Eugen ... Read More

  • Toward E-Mail Governance: Policies and Practices in the Government of
           Canada / Vers la gouvernance des courriels : politiques et pratiques du
           gouvernement du Canada
    • Abstract: As e-mail messages have grown uncontrolled into one of the largest corporate information repositories, e-mail has become the most common form of communication at organizations, including governments. The Government of Canada (GC) reported that over 100 separate e-mail systems were used by more than 300,000 government employees everyday in 2015 (Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat 2015). E-mail is considered one of the most important information assets within an information governance framework in providing valuable public services to citizens in government agencies (Shared Services Canada 2016). It should be strategically approached with “a major area of focus for information governance efforts” (Smallwood ... Read More

  • Identifying as a Librarian: When LIS Graduates in Non-Library Roles Use
           the Title “Librarian” / S’identifier comme bibliothécaire : quand
           les diplômés BSI utilisent le titre de « bibliothécaire » en dehors
           du milieu bibliothécaire
    • Abstract: The library and information science (LIS) profession is undergoing a time of transition. Positions for LIS graduates in “traditional” library-based settings are becoming increasingly rare (Clark 2013; Fialkoff 2009; Royal Society of Canada 2014; Stronski 2004; Szkolar 2012). There is a perception that traditional LIS jobs are disappearing as a result of changes in today’s information environment. These traditional jobs include librarian positions in academic, public, school, and special library settings. This perception is supported by several sources including studies suggesting that there are fewer job opportunities available (Stronski 2004) and observations that there is significant competition for available ...

  • What Does the Future Hold for the Law Librarian in the Advent of
           Artificial Intelligence' / Que réserve l’avenir pour le
           bibliothécaire de droit avec la venue de l’intelligence
           artificielle'
    • Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a topic of heated debate for many professions. The technology’s benefits are substantial as it has the ability to reach reasoned conclusions, which can outpace the human mind’s ability, at a significantly cheaper cost and with increased speed, accuracy, and consistency (Chang 2016). For decades, law librarians have been on the front lines of training law firm associates in the art of legal research. From reference services to formal training programs, firm librarians have been fundamental to bridging the gap between law school courses and the realities of research in practice. The introduction of AI software in many law firms worldwide questions the continued relevance of ... Read More

  • The Data Librarian’s Handbook by Robin Rice and John Southall
           (review)
    • Abstract: Research data management (RDM) and the development of data management plans (DMP), especially for disciplines such as economics, social sciences, and the allied fields, are a quickly expanding service area in library science. Data librarians are increasingly finding a niche for employment opportunities in what Lyotard (1979) characterizes as the postmodern condition of the information revolution. Data librarians must acquire the skills of how to use, preserve, and curate data. The Data Librarian’s Handbook answers the question: “why it is becoming more important for researchers to cite the data they use in their work'” The authors argue that librarianship may be at risk if librarians do not help researchers ...

  • Participatory Heritage ed. by Henriette Roued-Cunliffe and Andrea Copeland
           (review)
    • Abstract: Participatory heritage is the interaction between people, as amateurs or enthusiasts, and historical or heritage materials or information. In some cases, this work is hosted or supported by cultural heritage institutions; in others, it is driven by people outside of those traditional authorities. Many people working in cultural heritage institutions, defined broadly, are addressing the challenges of opening their collections to the public and encouraging new uses for records. This is inspired by the desire of heritage professionals to provide respectful services and support to community-run projects and to marginalized communities who have not historically been served by heritage institutions. ...
