Information Technology and Libraries Volume 12 Number 3; September 1993 Filing, Filtering, and the First Few Found by Michael K. Buckland, Barbara A. Norgard, and Christian Plaunt...311 Abstract: Card catalogs are dominated by the alphabetic arrangement of the catalog records. Alphabetic arrangement has been carried over to online catalogs, with some unfortunate consequences. Alphabetic order is reconsidered in relation to the purposes of catalogs and differences in catalog technology. Document ranking, subset ranking, and adaptive filtering are examined as alternatives in online catalogs to displays of catalog ...
with the aim of creating, replacing, improving or understanding information systems. Information science is often (mistakenly) considered a branch of computer science . However, it is actually a broad, interdisciplinary field, incorporating not only aspects of computer science, but often diverse fields such as archival science , cognitive science , commerce , communications , law , library science , museology , management , mathematics , philosophy , public policy , and the social sciences .

Bradford Lee Eden on Technical Services
(June 2010, v.29, n.2), Bradford L. Eden, Associate University Librarian for Technical Services & Scholarly Communication at UC Santa Barbara, wrote an article called, “The New User Environment: The End of Technical Services?”. The claim that technical services will die either a slow or quick death is something many of us have already heard in many flavors. Does anyone remember Tennant’s death to MARC? The twist with Bradford’s article is not that he predicts that technical services will end by a certain date. On the contrary, technical services as a unit within the library will undergo or should carry ... market research, surveys and trends

Real Simple?
“Give us simple!” the focus group demanded. In 2005, we asked patrons what they wanted from a digital library interface. They told us they wanted reliable information. They wanted an uncluttered design. Most important, they wanted a search box on the homepage that would access everything. So we gave it to them. Founded in 1992, the Michigan eLibrary (MeL) is the nation’s oldest statewide digital library. Michigan librarians support MeL by conducting database evaluations, participating in usability testing, promoting the service to their patrons, adding to a collection of librarian-recommended web sites, and ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

/PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new report finds America's public libraries posted gains in provision of public computer and Internet resources.

The national 2010 Public Library ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Digital library at AllExperts
accessible by means of computers. The digital content may be locally held or accessed remotely via computer networks. In libraries, the process of digitization began with the catalog, moved to periodical indexes and abstracting services, then to periodicals and large reference works, and finally to book publishing. Some of the largest digital libraries are purely digital having few if any physical holdings. The term Digital Library is diffuse enough to be applicable to a wide range of digital entities. Divisions can be made between libraries that have some physical presence where patrons are able to access physical holdings as ...
