Description : The International Encyclopedia of Information and Library Science was published to widespread acclaim in 1996, and has become the major reference work in the field. This eagerly awaited new edition has been fully revised and updated to take full account of the many and radical changes which have taken place since the Encyclopedia was originally conceived. With nearly 600 entries, written by a global team of over 150 contributors, the subject matter ranges from mobile library services provided by camel and donkey transport to search engines, portals and the World Wide Web. The new edition retains the successful structure of the first with an alphabetical organization providing the basic framework of a coherent collection of connected entries. Conceptual entries explore and explicate all the major issues, theories and activities in information and library science, such as the economics of information and information management. A wholly new entry on information systems, and enhanced entries on the information professions and the information society, are key features of this new edition. Topical entries deal with more specific subjects, such as collections management and information services for ethnic minorities. New or completely revised entries include a group of entries on information law, and a collection of entries on the Internet and the World Wide Web.

Description : In this book, practitioners and educators outline approaches for ensuring that students of library and information science are better prepared to serve a culturally and ethnically diverse public. Mapping Curricular Reform in Library/Information Studies Education emphasizes the special need to assure sensitivity to ethnic/cultural minorities on the part of all professionals dealing directly with the library's public. The book helps determine the degree to which the curricula of schools of library and information science may need revisions to better prepare those who will serve a clientele far more diverse than that now encountered by information professionals. It highlights the non-response of most ALA-accredited schools to the increasingly diverse nature of American society and provides methods for determining the special needs of the community the library/information center serves. Mapping Curricular Reform in Library/Information Studies Education contains overviews and specific strategies to help readers understand and resolve issues regarding inclusion of and sensitivity to minorities as library students, practitioners, and clients. Diverse chapters discuss: the link between public education and public libraries the meaning of multiculturalism in education and its implications for public service institutions diversity and the role of the library administrator strategies to identify unique client groups and their information needs the complexity of serving the Hispanic community cultural diversity and curriculum in library and information studies recruitment and retention of minorities in the library profession problems in recruiting and retaining minority students perception of libraries/information centers by minorities This volume also alerts library administrators to the unique problems facing many paraprofessionals who are working toward their professional degrees and the accommodations that may be required to make certain these students will become professionals ready to serve a diverse public. Mapping Curricular Reform in Library/Information Studies Education is an informative and helpful guide for library and information science educators, as well as professionals in all types of libraries as they strive to provide effective services to all groups of people.

Description : Combine marketing and strategic planning techniques to make your library more successful! With cutting-edge research studies as well as theoretical chapters that have not been seen before in the marketing literature for LIS, this book examines the current and quite limited state of marketing by LIS practitioners and institutions. It provides you with examples of how marketing can be made more widely applicable within LIS and illustrates some of the usefulness of marketing in special LIS settings and contexts. The book explains how and why managers should combine marketing strategy with strategic planning and demonstrates the means by which LIS could move toward a more full-fledged use of marketing—relationship marketing and social marketing in particular. In order to be a more effective tool, Strategic Marketing in Library and Information Science is divided into two sections: “The Basis and Context for Marketing” (theoretical information) and “The Application of Marketing” (practical applications that you can put to use in your institution). Chapters cover: existing literature on marketing in LIS—what it has to offer and what it lacks strategic planning that must take place before marketing money is spent the branding process and how it can be helpful in LIS marketing a marketing method for bridging the gap between staffing needs and the current shortage of librarians a way to use relationship marketing techniques to respond to the challenge of marketing electronic resources marketing applications relevant to theological libraries the effective use of social marketing at the Austin History Center—a fascinating case study! a fresh marketing approach to bridging gaps between cultural history and education the importance of marketing for public libraries
