Não pude ir este ano (em cima de exames ) mas a blogosfera permite manter-me a par dos acontecimentos:
Eric Lease Morgan’s Top Tech Trends for ALA 2006; “Sum” pontificationshttp://litablog.org/2006/06/18/eric-lease-morgans-top-tech-trends-for-ala-2006-sum-pontifications/ é um posto que apareceu no blog da LITA a que tenho de dar mais atenção assim que passe a época.
Os tópicos são:
- The increasing availability of Voice of over IP (VoIP) is making it easier to communicate with people all over the world in real time.
- Web pages in the form of blogs and wikis are becoming the norm as opposed to the exception.
- Social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook are forms of communication, identify formulation, and benign exhibitionism.
- The ideas forming the core of open source software are slowly leaking into other domains including science and government.
- Meta-search is not living up to expectations, and I assert this is because it is based on poor technological assumptions.
- Mass digitization will change aspects of librarianship.
- Licensed content and digital resource management (DRM) schemes are not going away, but neither is open access.
- There is a growing discontent with the library catalogs.
- The cataloging process is moving from complete and full to good enough because full-text indexing and automatic classification is less expensive.
- OCLC is continuing to expand and redefine itself.
Muitos deles merecem um post individual. Enquanto não o faço , vão lá ver!
