As conferências de biblitecários já não são o que eram

Publicado por Julio Anjos em 2006, 7 de Junho

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

Publicado por Julio Anjos em 2006, 5 de Junho

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

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

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

Twelve reasons for the death of small and independent bookstores

Publicado por Julio Anjos em 2006, 4 de Junho

Texto publicado por um dono de uma livraria no acto de a fechar depois de 29 anos de serviço fiel ao livro. Não sei se as acusações (principalmente aos bibliotecários) serão assim tão merecidas… mas tocante.

Ever thankful to those who made the effort before us, with heartfelt apologies to those who are still in the fight and the few who support them–offered upon the closing of Avenue Victor Hugo Bookshop in Boston.

1. Corporate law (and the politicians, lawyers, businessmen and accountants who created it for their own benefit)–a legal fiction with more rights than the individual citizen, which allows the likes of Barnes & Noble and Walmart to write off the losses of a store in Massachusetts against the profit of another in California, while paying taxes in Delaware–for making ‘competition’ a joke and turning the free market down the dark road toward state capitalism.

2. Publishers–marketing their product like so much soap or breakfast cereal, aiming at demographics instead of people, looking for the biggest immediate return instead of considering the future of their industry, ignoring the art of typography, the craft of binding, and needs of editing, all to make a cheapened product of glue and glitz–for being careless of a 500 year heritage with devastating result.

3. Book buyers–those who want the ‘convenience’ and ‘cost savings’ of shopping in malls, over the quaint, the dusty, or the unique; who buy books according to price instead of content, and prefer what is popular over what is good–for creating a mass market of the cheap, the loud, and the shiny.

4. Writers–who sell their souls to be published, write what is already being written or choose the new for its own sake, opt to feed the demands of editors rather than do their own best work, place style over substance, and bear no standards–for boring their readers unto television.

5. Booksellers–who supply the artificial demand created by marketing departments for the short term gain, accept second class treatment from publishers, push what is ‘hot’ instead of developing the long term interest of the reader–for failing to promote quality of content and excellence in book making.

6. Government (local, state and federal)–which taxes commercial property to the maximum, driving out the smaller and marginal businesses which are both the seed of future enterprise and the tradition of the past, while giving tax breaks to chain stores, thus killing the personality of a city–for producing the burden of tax codes only accountants can love.

7. Librarians–once the guardians, who now watch over their budgets instead–for destroying books which would last centuries to find room for disks and tapes which disintegrate in a few years and require costly maintenance or replacement by equipment soon to be obsolete.

7. Bibliotecários- Os guardiões de antanho, que agora vigiam mais os orçamentos que os livros — por destruirem livros que duram centenas de anos, para arranjar espaço para discos e bandas que se desintegram em poucos anos, requerem mantutenção dispendiosa ou substituição intergal por outros equipamentos de obsolescência igualmente rápida!

8. Book collectors–who have metamorphosed from book worms to moths attracted only to the bright; once the sentinels of a favorite author’s work, now mere speculators on the ephemeral product of celebrity–for putting books on the same level with beanie babies.

9. Teachers–assigning books because of topical appeal, or because of their own lazy familiarity, instead of choosing what is best; thus a tale about the teenage angst of a World War Two era prep school boy is pushed at students who do not know when World War Two took place–for failing to pass the torch of civilization to the next generation.

10. Editors–who have forgotten the editorial craft–for servicing the marketing department, pursuing fast results and name recognition over quality of content and offering authors the Faustian bargain of fame and fortune, while pleading their best intentions like goats.

11. Reviewers–for promoting what is being advertised, puffing the famous to gain attention, being petty and personal, and praising the obscure with priestly authority–all the while being paid by the word.

12. The Public–those who do not read books, or can not find the time; who live by the flickering light of the television, and will be the first to fear the darkening of civilization–for not caring about consequences.

“Thus, we come to the twilight of the age of books; to the closing of the mind; to the pitiful end of the quest for knowledge–and stare into the cold abyss of night.”

John Usher
