Library & Information studies - Librarian's Choice picks
Social networking: never mind the students, what about us? is just one of the interesting papers given by a range of libraries at Beyond The Hype: Web 2.0, an Australian Library and Information Association conference, originally held in February 2008. The conference description: "Beyond the Hype 2008: Web 2.0 will introduce, discuss and debate issues about Web 2.0, its impact, its usefulness, discussing whether it's of benefit to your library, and possible ways of incorporating it in to libraries." Definitely worth a look.
Social software in libraries : building collaboration, communication, and community Online, by Meredith G. Farkas. (2007)
This useful primer explores many of the social networking technologies being investigated by libraries today: blogs, wiki, podcasts, social networking, gaming, and others. Farkas also includes chapters on 'What will work for you' (always an essential question) and "Keeping Up" - how library staff can keep abreast of new technologies.
Library and information e-journals
Note - in order to access these e-journals directly, you need a library card. If you have logged onto mygateway.info, then EBSCO (in the drop down menu) within the last 30 days, you will be taken directly to the right pages. Otherwise, just visit the EBSCO Login page and enter your library card and name when prompted.
Library, Information Science & Technology Abstract (LISTA) is also searchable from EBSCO on mygateway.info. It indexes more than 600 periodicals, plus books, research reports and proceedings. Subject coverage includes librarianship, classification, cataloging, bibliometrics, online information retrieval, information management and more. Coverage in the database extends back as far as the mid-1960s.
Setting up an automatic email alert whenever new issues are added to EBSCO is very easy. Just click on the "journal alert" link from any title link below, and step through the instructions. You only need to register to this level of detail for the first journal alert set up. From that point EBSCO will send you an email with the list of contents when the issue is added, with individual article links for easy access. Article links are also available as RSS feeds.
