Holistic graph-based document representation and management for open science

29 de Junho de 2022, 00:00

Abstract

While most previous research focused only on the textual content of documents, advanced support for document management in digital libraries, for open science, requires handling all aspects of a document: from structure, to content, to context. These different but inter-related aspects cannot be handled separately and were traditionally ignored in digital libraries. We propose a graph-based unifying representation and handling model based on the definition of an ontology that integrates all the different perspectives and drives the document description in order to boost the effectiveness of document management. We also show how even simple algorithms can profitably use our proposed approach to return relevant and personalized outcomes in different document management tasks.

Community, Risk Assessment, Prevention and Control: Black American College Student's Information Seeking on COVID‐19

Por J. Brenton Stewart — 28 de Junho de 2022, 23:33

Abstract

Background

Despite the disproportionate impact of the novel coronavirus on Black Americans, there is little research that centres Black college students' information behaviours during the pandemic.

Objective

The objective of this study is to identify information needs, resources and use regarding the novel coronavirus pandemic among Black American college students.

Methods

This is a quantitative study among 389 college students in the USA. Data were collected using an online crowdsourced survey instrument. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyse data through SPSS.

Results

The most salient information needs related to Covid-19 symptoms, personal protective equipment, vulnerable populations, and risk assessment; however, students also wanted information on Covid-19's impact on the Black community. There were no statistically significant gender differences in students' information seeking, resources or use with one exception; male students believed the internet alone could provide all relevant information about the coronavirus in comparison to female students. Barriers related to the volume of information, information fluidity and determining the quality of information.

Conclusion

Colleges and universities can play a critical role in information dissemination during crisis events. Students need critical information literacy skills that intersect with everyday information needs, particularly health literacy.

Transforming and extending library services by embracing technology and collaborations: A case study

Por Terrie R. Wheeler, Diana Delgado, Paul J. Albert, Sarah Ben Maamar, Peter R. Oxley — 23 de Junho de 2022, 06:24

Abstract

Technology advances and collaborations with information technology and computer science groups have enabled library services to expand into new domains. Listening to user needs, eliminating administrative burden and saving users time remain strong foundations on which to build new library services enabled by technology. Examples of what is now possible is described, including service to user groups, successes, failures and challenges. Although technology advances have enabled library service enhancements to all user groups, special emphasis on new library services in support of the research enterprise is discussed. As Lindberg and Humphreys predicted in 2015, the research enterprise's need for responsible curation of research data has created new opportunities for library services and examples of those services are discussed. As technology continues to advance, new library services are expected to emerge. These may include regulatory and compliance services. By developing these services with user feedback to save users time and expedite their work, and in collaboration with technology experts, libraries can expect to offer sustainable and valued services for years to come.

Focus groups revealed how community health workers in North Carolina find, verify, and process health information for migrant and seasonal farmworkers

Por Catherine E. LePrevost, Leslie E. Cofie, Jamie E. Bloss, Joseph G. L. Lee — 20 de Junho de 2022, 05:14

Abstract

Background

Community health workers (CHWs) bridge the gap in health and social services delivery for marginalized communities, providing critical health information to those with limited access to health resources.

Objectives

The purpose of our study was to understand CHWs' approaches to identifying salient and credible health information for migrant and seasonal farmworkers in rural North Carolina (NC).

Methods

Two focus group discussions were held with CHWs in eastern NC and one in western NC in February 2020.

Results

CHWs seek health information on chronic health conditions disproportionately experienced by farmworkers such as diabetes and high blood pressure. They search for information from existing resources in their possession, via the internet, and through consultation with health professionals. CHWs also verify the information and transform the content into resources that are accessible to farmworkers.

Discussion

Our findings suggest that CHWs possess a strong set of information literacy skills that could be enhanced through additional training in crediting sources, creating new materials, and organization and storage.

Conclusion

This study adds to the very limited body of knowledge about how CHWs seek and transmit information to their communities and sheds light on their information need and literacy abilities.

Effects of introducing an online community in a crowdsourcing contest platform

Por Jonathan (Hua) Ye, Matthew Jensen — 17 de Junho de 2022, 13:20

Abstract

Crowdsourcing platform owners and operators constantly search for ways to improve contestant performance. One novel proposal for improving performance is the introduction of an online community to the crowdsourcing contest platform. However, research regarding the potential benefits of an online community on such platforms is unclear. Furthermore, prior research often assumes the single dimensionality of prior experience, whose impacts on crowdsourcing performance are also inconclusive. Building on knowledge collaboration and cognitive diversity research, we model the direct effects of introducing an online community on contestant performance and the moderating effects of the amount of experience and experience diversity. Leveraging a natural quasi-experiment in a large crowdsourcing contest platform, we collected 24 months of contestant data to test our hypotheses. Our propensity score matching and difference in differences analysis demonstrated that contestants' performance (winning contests and crowdsourcing income) increases significantly with the presence of an online community. Additionally, the positive effect of an online community on performance is more pronounced for contestants with less experience and those with more diverse experience. Our findings provide insights into the causality of incorporating an online community and inform community investment decisions for crowdsourcing contest platforms.

An analysis of ALA‐accredited MLS curricula indicates deficiencies in the initial training provided for public librarians

Por Gabriella Pandolfelli, Jessica A. Koos, Lisa Benz Scott — 16 de Junho de 2022, 00:23

Abstract

Background

Public librarians often address patron inquiries regarding health concerns. However, prior research indicates that public librarians may be unprepared to meet the health information requests of patrons.

Objective

This study examined the availability of health-themed courses in American Library Association (ALA) accredited Master of Library and Information Studies/Science (MLIS) programs.

Methods

Accredited MLIS programs were identified using the ALA directory. Curricula were reviewed for health content and public librarianship, children's, and young adult concentrations. Descriptive and bivariate analyses assessed the percent of programs that offered various health-related course content and the differences in availability of such content.

Results

Of the 59 accredited MLIS programs, only 35 (59.32%) listed at least one health elective and none listed a required health course. No MLIS programs that had a public library concentration (n = 21) listed a required or elective health course, two programs with a children's concentration (n = 25) listed health course electives, and one program with a young adult concentration (n = 25) listed a health course elective.

Conclusion

ALA-accredited MLIS programs should consider increasing their offerings or requiring health-related courses to improve the training of public librarians to meet the health information needs of communities.

Comparison of library studies programs in Croatia and the USA

Por Angela R. Davis — 9 de Junho de 2022, 05:31
IFLA Journal, Ahead of Print.
This study describes and compares the minimum educational requirements of library and information science programs offered in Croatia and the USA. The article adds to previous research in comparative education and comparative librarianship. The findings show notable differences and similarities between the two countries. The library and information science educational path in Croatia is more structured, requiring a Bachelor’s degree in addition to a Master’s, as well as postgraduate licensure. The USA typically only offers graduate degree programs in the field. Library and information science programs in both countries are generally flexible and highly customizable. Both countries require several foundational courses in librarianship, however, Croatian programs place greater emphasis on technology and collection management curricula. In contrast, library and information science programs in the USA require more managerial coursework and offer students increased flexibility in terms of course choice. This article may assist library school educators in evaluating their programs to address current and future professional needs.
