Estão as bibliotecas no negócio dos Livros ou da Informação?

Posted by Julio Anjos on 14th Junho 2006

Exemplos do passado, concretamente num dos grandes artigos sobre gestão jamais escritos:

The railroads did not stop growing because the need for passenger and freight transportation declined. That grew. The railroads are in trouble today not because the need was filled by others (cars, trucks, airplanes, even telephones) but because it was not filled by the railroads themselves. They let others take customers away from them because they assumed themselves to be in the railroad business rather than in the transportation business. The reason they defined their industry incorrectly was that they were railroad-oriented instead of transportation oriented; they were product-oriented instead of customer-oriented.

THINK Systemically ACT Strategically – Parte 2 de 3

Posted by Julio Anjos on 13th Junho 2006

Challenge 2
is only a precondition for equality

there must also be
James OToole

Desafio 2
Informação é apenas um pre-requisito
para a igualdade

Deve também existir
James OToole

So lets investigate…
systemic, strategic, sustainable
information literacy

cause & effect

Vamos então investigar..
literacia informacional sistémica, estratégica , sustentável

causa e efeito

educational imperatives
significant emphasis on
lifelong learning & graduate capabilities
focus on outcomes-based education
and “process-based” learning
(rather than “knowledge-based” learning)

colleges and universities must
place new emphasis on educating students
to become intentional learners

in a turbulent and complex world, every college
student will need to be purposeful &
self-directed in multiple ways

imperativos educacionais
ênfase significativo na aprendizagem ao longo da vida
e capacitação de licenciados
foco em resultados e “aprendizagem de processos”,
por oposição a aprendizagem de conhecimentos”.

Faculdades e universidades devem colocar
um redobrado ênfase em educar os seus estudantes de modo
a que se tornem em alunos intencionais

num mundo complexo e turbulento, cada estudante
necessitará de propósito e auto-direcção
de múltiplas maneiras

Intentional learners are integrative
thinkers who can see connections in
seemingly disparate information &
draw on a wide range of
knowledge to make decisions.

os estudantes intencionais são pensadores integradores que
podem ver ligações em informações aparentemente disjuntas e
invocar uma corpo alargado de conhecimento para
fundamentar decisões

they adapt the skills learned in one situation
to problems encountered in another:
in a classroom, the workplace,
their communities,
or their personal lives

adaptam as competências aprendidas numa situação
a problemas encontrados noutra:
numa aula, no local de trabalho
na comunidade
nas suas vidas pessoais

intentional learners succeed
even when instability is the only constant

os estudantes intencionais têm sucesso
mesmo quando a instabilidade é a única constante


the progressive universities

will be those where learning outcomes
have become liberating through the
implicit and explicit course integration
& development of graduate
attributes such as information literacy

As universidades progressistas

serão aquelas em que os resultados da aprendizagem
se tornam libertadores através da integração explicita e implícita dos seus cursos
e desenvolvimento de atributos dos licenciados tais como a literacia informacional

These universities will
evolve & adapt
to future educational shifts.

Estas universidades evoluirão
e adaptar-se-ão a um futuro de
paradigmas educacionais em constante mudança

Paper presented at the International Bielefeld Conference, Germany 3-5 February

increased influence & involvement in T&L

Maior influência e Envolvimento em ensino e aprendizagem

parcerias colaborarias de Ensino & Aprendizagem
partilha de responsabilidade nos resultados da escola e/ou faculdade
liderança da biblioteca & envolvimento
cursos & recursos online
colaboração multi-departamental
investigação activa + aplicação de teorias

institutions with strong
strategic planning processes

instituições com processos de planeamento bem enraizados estratégico

are more purposeful & adaptive

têm mais direcção e adaptam-se melhor

able to move beyond the notion of change
as a linear series of sequenced, planned events
to ones that are interconnected
& occurring simultaneously
balances in the strategies, in the
interrelationships between the
strategies, and applied to the
change process itself, are all
critical factors in the capacity for
institutions to adopt sweeping
changes to established norms of
process and behaviour

capazes de ir além da noção de mudança
como série linear de eventos planeados e sequenciais
para eventos interconectados
e simultâneos

balanço das estratégia , mas inter relações ente
as estratégias e aplicadas ao próprio processo de mudança
são vários factores críticos na capacidade das instituições
se adaptarem a mudanças profundas e estabelecer normas de processo
e comportamento

Kezar, A. & Eckel, P. Examining the Institutional Transformation Process
Research in Higher Education, June, 43 (3), pp. 295-328, (2002).

Significantly enhanced student performance in understanding (Bodner, 1986), and comprehension (von Glasserfield, 1987; Leonard and Penick, 1998)

Students who “… describe mechanisms and cause-effect relationships; ask questions which focus on explanations and causes, predictions; and engage in …… theorising (paraphrased from Chin and Brown, 2000).

Students who … construct … elaborate, well-differentiated knowledge structures (Pearsall et al., 1997).

embedding IL + problem solving + critical thinking = deep learning

Isto é o fim do 2º episódio. Agradeço correcções e propostas de outra tradução nos comentários a esta entrada. Mais uns dias e coloco o terceiro episódio.

What Users Want

Posted by Julio Anjos on 8th Junho 2006

Users want a rich pool from which to search, simplicity, and satisfaction. One does not have to take a 50-minute instruction session to order from Amazon. Why should libraries continue to be so difficult for our users to master?


  • Users expect one system or search to cover a wide information universe (ala Google or Amazon.com).
  • Enriched metadata. (ONIX, tables of contents, cover art, etc.).
  • Full-text availability.
  • Users want to move easily/seamlessly from a citation ABOUT an item to the item itself. Discovery alone is not enough.
  • Users expect systems to provide lots of intelligent assistance.
    • Correct obvious spelling errors.
    • Sort results in order of relevance to their queries.
    • Help in navigating large retrievals through logical subsetting or topical maps or hierarchies.
    • Help in selecting the best thing through relevance ranking or added commentary from peers & experts or “others who used this also used that” tools.
    • Customization and personalization services.
  • Authenticated single sign-on.
  • Security/privacy.
  • Communication and collaboration.
  • Multiple formats available: e-books, mpeg, jpeg, rss and other push technologies – along with traditional, tangible formats.
  • Direct links to E-mail, Instant Messaging (IM), sharing.
  • Scholars increasingly participate in online virtual communities for research and education.
  • Users want what the library has to offer, without having to come to the library to get it.

Rethinking How We Provide Bibliographic Services for the University of California
Bibliographic Services Task Force

Pare, Olhe, Leia Ponto.
A lista de recomendações (a lista de causas é que está a acima) é imperdível.

Parafraseando Churchill, e desde já reservo o titulo para um artgo sobre o impacto a Web 2.0 sobre as bibliotecas: This is our finest hour!

A bibliografia (Apendice G, página 59 a 80) também é importante.

As conferências de biblitecários já não são o que eram

Posted by Julio Anjos on 7th Junho 2006

Que dizer duma conferência que a certo ponto do programa contem uma “Open Source Software Installfest” de 8 horas. E não é instalar umas coisas leves, tipo msn, ou firefox. É:

  • Koha, an ILS;
  • OpenILL, an interlibrary loan system;
  • Jybe, virtual reference;
  • GreenStone, digital collection and institutional respository development;
  • and WordPress, a blogging tool.

Mas não é por isso que quero ir. É porque das 10:30 em diante ( sem hora para terminar ) Stephen Abram vai discorrer sobre “Web 2.0 and the Library 2.0 in Our Future” nos seguintes termos:

There is a global conversation going on right now about the next generation of the web. It’s happening under the name of Web 2.0. It’s the McLuhanesque hot web, where true human interaction takes precedence over merely “cool” information delivery and e-mail. It’s about putting information into the real context of our users’ lives, work, and play. Concurrently, a group of information professionals are having a conversation about the vision for what Library 2.0 will look like in this Web 2.0 ecosystem. Some are even going so far as to talk about Web 3.0! Web 2.0 is coming fast and it’s BIG! What are the skills and competencies that Librarian 2.0 will need? MySpace and Facebook are just the tip of the iceberg! Come and hear an overview of Web 2.0 and a draft vision for Library 2.0, and an opinion about what adaptations we’ll need to make to thrive in this future scenario.

Noto que o faz, nesta altura, já como presidente em exercício da SLA!

Tamém nesta conferência acho interessanet as semelhanças entre as Poster Sessions e os Posters apresentados na última conferência da minha escola:

  • * Adapting and implementing Open Source Tutorials
  • * Organizing Web Chaos: How an Open Source Content Management System Help One Library Regain Control of Its Website
  • * Light in the Blackboard Jungle: Maintaining Your Library’s Presence Within an E-learning Software Platform
  • * Instructional Media and Library Online Tutorials
  • * Information on the Go: A journey of Incorporating Portable Media Players into Library Technology
  • * Integrating Library Services: An application proposal to enable federation of information & user services
  • * Integrating Serials Solutions and EZProxy
  • * Relevant Resources for Student Research: An XML Approach
  • * Collaborating on the Roll Out of a Web Content Management System at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center
  • * Scanning the Past: Central Florida Memory
  • * Using Web Services to Advertise New Library Holdings: RSS Library Feeds in the Campus CMS
  • * University Libraries and University Presses: Websites in Cooperation or Competition?
  • * Showcasing the information Architecture of the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s New Virtual Library with Portals
  • * Web Services Librarianship 2000 to 2005: Analysis of Position Announcements

Capitão Copyright

Posted by Julio Anjos on 5th Junho 2006

Depois de uma “action figure” biblionómica aparece o “Capitão Copyrigth!!!” 

Gostava de ver os dois à bulha…

Ainda por cima o Capitão Copyright é um fascista que imediatamente após eu fazer a captura do link para o bonecome apresenta o seguinte texto:
Web Server Security Alert

network traffic and behavior. If you feel that you have caused this

E não me deixa ver mais nada! Se são estas bestas que defendem os direitos de autor e de cópia vou passar a só ouvir musica de elevador!

Um site com uma “noticia de propriedade e direitos” de 1655 palavras! Ora francamente!

The Scholars at the Wall

Posted by Julio Anjos on 5th Junho 2006

As conversas são como as cerejas…

Que relação haverá entre a resistência de tantos eruditos
à colocação dos seus trabalhos em repositórios indexáveis
pelo google e a simbologia deste post

[I] sentence you to be exposed before your peers
