Can Consortial Reference Partners Answer Your Local Users’ Library Questions?, Bradley Wade Bishop Oct 2012

Can Consortial Reference Partners Answer Your Local Users’ Library Questions?, Bradley Wade Bishop

Information Science Faculty Publications

The purpose of this article is to explore location-based questions as a weakness of virtual reference consortia and discuss how to mitigate related issues. Content analysis of how both local and non-local academic librarians responded to location-based questions provides insight into considerations academic libraries must make when participating in a virtual reference consortia. Unobtrusive testing analyzed the local knowledge assumption that non-local librarians have difficulty answering questions about libraries beyond their own. The results from these two methods indicate academic librarians have some difficulties providing responses to library location-based questions and a discussion on overcoming this weakness is included.

A Library Is Not The Books: An Ethical Obstacle To The Digital Library, James M. Donovan Jan 2012

A Library Is Not The Books: An Ethical Obstacle To The Digital Library, James M. Donovan

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Casual and thoughtful speakers alike frequently use “library” as though it were the collective noun for “book”: A herd of cows, a murder of crows, a library of books. In practice it matters little whether “book” is understood as a specific physical artifact of ink and paper, or whether it refers more generically to any information-containing entity. The consistent point appears to be that in the presence of a sufficient number of those items, a library necessarily rises into existence.

This implied relationship proves critical to debates over the implications of digital formats for libraries. If libraries are reducible to ...

The Role Of The Library In The Micro Age, Antoinette Paris Greider Sep 1984

The Role Of The Library In The Micro Age, Antoinette Paris Greider

Library Presentations

The 1970s is seen as the decade that automated the technical processes in the library. Mainframe computers and minicomputers enable us to automate some of the most tedious tasks such as typing catalog cards, keeping track of circulation records and generating book orders. The 1970s also saw the advent and mastering of searching major reference tools electronically.

The 1980s brings a new development with the age of the microcomputer. Libraries can now do many of their processes with a microcomputer in house. They can create data bases, tailor make bibliographies, generate handouts and issue reports to meet their needs. Home ...
