Go To Hellman: Inter-Library Loan Reinvented for eBooks and Just ...
My graduate school training was in engineering and in physics. In engineering, you put things together and try to get them to work. In physics, you smash things (the polite term is " perturbation ") to help you understand how they had been working. I still use these approaches to help me understand the things I write about. You can learn a lot about a system be noting the bits that squawk when faced with a perturbation of the system. I got a lot of interesting feedback on my article on patron-driven ebook acquisition . It seems that this perturbation in library processes could have wide ranging effects far outside of ... market research, surveys and trends
Replacing The Myths About Marketing To Libraries by Mark Sexton
As many of you are aware Dorrance recently teamed up with CBE to offer the exhibit of your book at library association meetings. CBE has an article on their website about marketing to librarys, I've highlighted a few of the more important points here - Myth #2: "Libraries are swamped with promotional mail and just throw it away." Reality: Librarians conscientiously read most of their mail, particularly from small and medium-sized publishers. They know that many original and valuable books and periodicals come from such houses and further more, they don't like the idea of being dominated by the giant houses. ... market research, surveys and trends

Publishers & Librarians: Two Cultures, One Goal
For two professions so committed to meeting the needs of readers, publishers and librarians have distinct cultures. Put simply, one culture is all about developing and selling books; the other is about sharing them and fostering a culture of reading. But there's another basic difference, too. Publishers work closely with authors and use sales figures to tell them what readers want, interpreting those figures like tea leaves. Librarians work closely with readers, using them as informants to help them select books that will satisfy the diverse tastes of a community. Though sharing may seem contrary to the imperative to sell ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Nigerian Cyber Crime and Privacy Legislation, Time for Review
Nigeria has been in the throes of implementing technology law and computer crime legislation for the best part of half a decade.  Within this period, there have been two Bills drafted in an attempt to bring our laws up to date and in line with our counterparts in other parts of the globe. It is to be noted however that while these attempts are an acknowledgement of the need for such legislation, the reality is that there are a number of gaps in relation to what has been proposed in these Bills and what is required for the laws to be adequate enough to tackle the growing risks, threats and vulnerabilities that can accrue to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
It's not your Leave it to Beaver Scouts any more
verywhere we go-o. People wanna kno-ow. Who we a-are,” the group of five-, six- and seven-year-olds chanted. As the 30-strong group of Beavers bumbled along the dirt trail in Surrey, B.C.'s Watershed Park this May, their rallying cry echoed that of thousands of Scouts Canada members before them. But with a twist: “We are the Khalsa, mighty mighty Khalsa.” The group had swapped the word “Beavers” with the term for baptized Sikhs. The Khalsa Scouts, who formed just in April, could represent the way forward for Scouts Canada, an organization scrambling to stay relevant 103 years after its ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

John Cotton Dana was one of the most innovative and influential librarians of the twentieth century. From his first library job in Denver where he opened the first public library, until his death in Newark in 1929, Dana successfully used public relations and marketing strategies to promote his libraries. He believed the library was there to be used and the more people who used it the better. In 1946, the library profession honored him with a library public relations award in his name. The John Cotton Dana contest is the oldest annual competition in the United States ...
