    Qualifications of information specialists: a case of library and information students at the Department of Information Science, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zagreb, Croatia2002Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The results of this short research are a confirmation to the hypothesis that stretches throughout the area of information science and refers to the fact that knowledge of an information expert is one of the most volatile ones. Based on the analysis of four-year students' answers several areas not sufficiently present in the Department's educational programme were sorted out. Students primarily pointed to the problem of quality practicums that are, in their opinion, insufficiently covered by the programme. The same is true for courses dealing with computers in general. This primarily refers to the need to get acquainted with the area of programming and applications that are basic for the profession, as well as to introducing the courses on marketing and communicology. What students can expect is knowledge and skills that would prepare them and direct them for acquiring knowledge specific for a variety of working environments, knowledge for adaptation and development, which calls for constant development and growth.

    Digital collection for blind and visually impaired people2001In: Libraries in the digital age, The Internet: ethics and legal issues Information services - practice and research / [ed] Tatjana Aparac, Zagreb, 2001Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The digital collection has been created to the purpose of ensuring better access to information for the blind and visually impaired. New technologies enable quick and simple access to information for this group of information users which had been so far restricted to slow and expensive process of material preparation (Braille texts, audio books, large print). Speech synthesis enables the blind to surf the World Wide Web and reach the information just as people who can see do. In order to make Internet retrieval efficient for all user categories (world statistics state that between 10% and 20% of population are people with different special needs), W3C Consortium has created guidelines (http://www.w3c.org/WAI/Resources) about ways in which web pages can be made accessible for all.

    Reading rights2000In: Intellectual property vs. the right to knowledge? / [ed] R.J. Banke, et al., Copenhagen: Royal School of Library and Information Science , 2000, p. 1-5Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The right to knowledge isn't questionable, only the ability to fulfil that right. Especially by the people with special needs, disabled people, in our case sight impaired and blind persons. Therefore the authors will talk about speech synthesis and ability to "read" books to sight impaired persons. The MBROLA speech synthesizer will be presented. Because nobody can deny any persons right to knowledge, the library and especially the National library has a duty to offer books to everybody who is interested in reading. The another thing that the authors will talk about is how to get books in digital form, which is needed for speech synthesis. The whole idea is making peace between intellectual property (authors) and right to knowledge (readers).

    Active Role of the Library in the process of Democratic Learning2001In: Open 2001: Knowledge, Information and Democracy in the Open society : The role of the library and information sector : Proceedings of the 9th International BOBCATSSS Symposium on Library and Information Science, Vilnius University, Vilnius, Lithuania, January 29-31, 2001, Vilnius University , 2001, p. 57-63Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of public library in post communist countries and countries in transition does not stop with the basic library functions (book loans, children sector etc.) but its role has become more responsible as well as complex. In last few years, Croatian people, bombed by the media, are being confronted with new political terminology. What is that thing called 'democracy', what does it mean to have a 'right to elect', what kind of society is 'open society', what kind of society are we living in? These are only some frequently asked questions that ordinary Croatian citizen is looking to find an answer on. Schools, newspapers and television (mass media) are no longer enough in the process of education. Public library has to take over the role of an educator that will guide users through «secret political terminology» and enable them to take an active role in political life of their community. In the public Libraries of Zagreb and Zadar we wanted to see users' opinion about the library as a democracy learning place so we exhibited books about democracy, totalitarism, political processes, etc. We were interested in finding out if users recognize library as a place where information of political context can be find.

    Istraživanje upravljanja WebPAC-om u fakultetskim knjižnicama Sveucilišta u Zagrebu: A survey of WebPAC management in libraries of the University of Zagreb2002In: Vjesnik Bibliotekara Hrvatske, ISSN 0507-1925, E-ISSN 1334-6938, Vol. 45, no 4/3, p. 93-104Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Effective WebPAC (OPAC accessible on the World Wide Web) implementation and administration requires a good strategy. The purpose of this research was to determine the extent to which WebPAC management in the University of Zagreb faculty libraries is supported by a defined strategy that makes a part of the general library planning, development and activities. The hypothesis was that the libraries do not have a well-developed strategy for implementing or administering the WebPAC. The conclusion is that the University of Zagreb faculty libraries insufficiently deal with WebPAC management.

    The importance of quality classification and subject indexing of health information in public libraries: A comparative analysis2017In: Improving Quality of Life Through Information: Proceedings of the XXV Bobcatsss Symposium, Tampere, Finland, January 2017 / [ed] Paavo Arvola, Tanja Hintsanen, Serafia Kari, Soile Kolehma, Shan Luolin, Jasmiina Sillanpää, 2017, p. 131-136Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The general aim of this paper is to explore the practice of subject indexing and classification of health information in public libraries. The pilot study encompasses two public libraries, each from a different European country, Croatia and Sweden: Zadar Public Library, and Växjö Public Library. The research questions are: 1) how important is the terminology for subject headings; and, 2) how many subject terms are enough to describe an information resource in a catalog record? The research was done in two phases. First, an exploratory evaluation of subject searching in the catalogs was conducted. Second, after the analysis of the catalogs, questions for interviews were formed. Four semi-structured interviews were conducted, two per library, of which one interview with a subject librarian and one with a reference librarian. Finally, a comparative analysis between the two libraries from the two countries was con- ducted. Results imply that the subject headings and classification used were very generic and did not cater for specific, topically narrower queries. Also, subject indexing was considered important, especially to the librarians for searching purposes through ensuring consistency in the catalog, thereby making it easier to find resources on the same topics.

    Digital humanities: an exploration of a new programs in higher education and its meaning making by community partners2017In: Extended Papers of the International Symposium on Digital Humanities (DH 2016): Växjö, Sweden, November, 7-8, 2016 / [ed] Koraljka Golub & Marcelo Milrad, CEUR-WS.org , 2017, Vol. 2021, p. 119-125Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As part of the Digital Humanities initiative at Linnaeus University, this exploratory study is aimed at gathering views and opinions from relevant stakeholders in the regional community in order to understand their perspective on Digital Humanities as a subject of study and the potential application of Digital Humanities to address local requirements. The ultimate purpose of the study was to inform the development of Digital Humanities at Linnaeus University in a way that would address genuine needs within society. The principal research question of the study was: "What views and opinions are there about Digital Humanities and how can they be exploited for the optimal benefit of the education and industry sectors of the local region of Småland?" A focus group interview of four stakeholders was conducted, each representing a different cultural institution in the region. The participants largely agreed that Digital Humanities could be used in optimal ways to engage people and end users in their work and social engagement. The Digital Humanities project could contribute and engage with wider society through schools, museums and other public platforms. However, the sustainability of the Digital Humanities project requires further study. Also, as a provider of higher education in Sweden, it was important to bear in mind that the proposed educational programme in the Digital Humanities needs to keep to the three pillars of Education, Research, and Engagement with Society as the primary components of their course development.

    Using the Internet in international educational activities: a case study2001In: 3rd CARNet Users Conference - CUC 2001: Conference Proceedings  (CD-ROM), Zagreb: CARNet , 2001Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Integration of Web-based courseware and other specialized applications for communication via Internet provides new technological opportunities for education across international borders. This paper will describe instructional activities and outcomes in organizing an educational project between students in the U.S. and Croatia. In this project students of library and information science from both countries collaborated in five small groups via Internet to complete an assigned research task. The research process required students to use various means of synchronous and asynchronous communication provided within the Web-based courseware Prometheus, such as email, file exchange and chat. The research outcomes were presented in the form of real-time student presentations at three locations in the U.S. and Croatia, using MS NetMeeting. After providing an overview of the project the paper will discuss the organizational and technological challenges involved in organizing an international educational activity on the Internet. In particular, the paper will address issues such as cultural and pedagogical differences, and logistical problems resulting from difference in time zones and difference in technology access. The concluding part of the paper will propose a number of strategic issues for organization of international, educational activities on the Internet involving students and faculty members from Croatia and participants from other countries.

    Smjernice za izradu mreznih stranica skolskih knjiznica: usporedba hrvatskih i stranih primjera: Guidelines for school library web sites: a comparison2003Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    School libraries have become information resource centres, which serve to their users as access points to different kinds of knowledge and information. However, information age in which we live is characterized by a great amount of information available in various formats. That is why the school libraries can no longer focus on their traditional tasks, but are expected to customize the services to users' requests and needs which, we cannot fail to notice, have changed immensely in the last few years. A logical step is to take the advantage of the new technologies. Library web site is only one of its most prominent results. In this article we will try to offer Croatian school librarians a set of guidelines for development and design of quality web sites and present the results of our small-scale research into Croatian and foreign school library web sites.

    The meaning of interoperability and its implications for archival institutions: Challenges and opportunities in Croatia, Finland and Sweden2017In: Information research, ISSN 1368-1613, E-ISSN 1368-1613, Vol. 22, no 1, article id 1653Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. This exploratory study aims to map the premises of developing interoperability of archival holdings and the understanding of how “interoperability” is understood from an operational perspective at archival institutions. The study is based on a comparative survey of the views of archivists from Croatian, Finnish and Swedish archives on the perceived needs, barriers and preferences regarding online access and interoperability of a their metadata and holdings.

    Method. A web survey comprising 35 multiple-choice and open-ended questions focusing on current state and plans regarding online access and interoperability of the holdings and metadata of the institutions was sent out to archives in Croatia, Finland and Sweden in autumn 2015.

    Analysis. Both quantitative and qualitative analyses were carried out on the data, which related to 45 individual archives. Quantitative analysis employed the statistical package SPSS, while the qualitative analysis referred to content analysis of open questions by one of the researchers.

    Results. While the respondents are unanimous in their opinion that interoperability is important for their institutions and useful for their users, the current level of interoperability and the online access to holdings provided by the responding institutions in discrepancy with this opinion. The lack of resources and expertise could be traced back to the shortage of interest at strategic and managerial level.

    Conclusion. The findings suggest that there are several obstacles in the way to providing improved interoperability and online access to archival holdings and metadata. At the same time, there is a lack of conceptual agency that would try to redefine the problem and try to choose appropriate methods, develop meanings and relations between the concept of interoperability and the principles of archival work.

    Library services for users with special needs: the state of affairs in the Croatian capital and plans for the future2001In: BOBCATSSS Open 2001 - Knowledge, information and democracy in the open society: The role of the library and information sector / [ed] Agné Antanaityté; et al, Vilnius: MND Publishing Centre , 2001, p. 101-105Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Every person has the right to information and knowledge. Individuals who are not able to use conventional library services depend on information professionals as well as on information technology. According to goals of IFLA’s Section of Libraries Serving Disadvantaged Persons, authors would like to promote free access to information in Croatia. In order to start on the known basis, it has been decided that a research needs to be conducted with the aim of getting an exact picture of the state of affairs in the field of serving special needs users. It took place during the summer of 2000 in Zagreb and its surrounding area, which makes one quarter of the Croatian population. Hospitals, prisons, homes for the aged and associations for people with special needs were included in the research. Public and university libraries were also part of the research, but at a more superficial level. In the next phase in 2001 a more complex research will be conducted in order to examine them thoroughly. In the article the results of the research are presented. The assumptions with which we started were confirmed. These are: 1) libraries and library services for people with special needs are present but not for all groups of special needs users; 2) there is an interest in improving the quality of library services through co-operation with external libraries, particularly the public ones and other specialised libraries; 3) there is a lack of technological and software support, especially for access to electronic information resources. One of the most important reasons for the unsastisfactory state of affairs is absence of systematic legislative support. The existing llegislative regulations are also presented because they are considered to be the major basis for systematic services implementation. One of the conclusions of the last Croatian Library Association Assembly (held in September 2000) was to establish a working body within the Association, which would promote library services for people with special needs in Croatia. This would include establishment of effective co-operation with experts and various associations for people with special needs, regulation and standardisation of co-operative programmes of public libraries with hospitals, homes for the aged and prisons as well as programmes for people with mental problems. The working body would also organise courses for librarians for new adaptive technologies and special needs of the users.

    Mogućnosti primjene digitalnih izvora informacija za slijepe i slabovidne osobe: Digital resources for blind and visually impaired2001In: 4. seminar Arhivi, knjižnice, muzeji: Mogućnosti suradnje u okruženju globalne informacijske infrastrukture : zbornik radova, Zagreb: Hrvatsko knjižničarsko društvo , 2001, p. 206-208Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [hr]

    U okviru opće poznatog i prihvaćenog koncepta “knjižnice za sve” koji jasno govori o težnji ljudske zajednice za omogućavanjem univerzalne dostupnosti informacijama, željeli bismo prikazati mogućnosti koje u tom smislu pruža današnja tehnologija za jednu od kategorija korisnika s posebnim potrebama. Jedan od projekata koji se započeo razvijati na Odsjeku za fonetiku Filozofskog fakulteta u Zagrebu obuhvaća mogućnost korištenja digitalne građe za slijepe i slabovidne osobe. Prišlo se izradi i razvoju softwarea za sintezu govora. pomoću kojeg se informacija u tekstu može preobraziti u sintetizirani govor koji ne podrazumijeva upotrebu ljudskog glasa. Ovo podrazumijeva postojanje dokumenata u digitalnom obliku koji se pomoću softwarea preoblikuju u zvuk. Ideja je da se oblikuje baza podataka sa digitalnim tekstovima koja se može izgrađivati na više načina, npr. povući postojeće mnogobrojne tekstove s World Wide Weba na jedno mjesto ili pri dodjeljivanju CIP zapisa u Nacionalnoj i sveučilišnoj knjižnici zamoliti autore za autorsko pravo na digitalnu inačicu publikacije, uz ograničen broj korisnika. Korisnici digitalnu građu mogu koristiti putem računala s ugrađenim programom za sintezu govora ili uz hardverski dodatak -Brailleovu tastaturu. Za slabovidne je u razvoju i poseban browser BrailleSurf. Slijepe i slabovidne osobe do sada su imale na raspolaganju zvučne knjige i tiskovine na Brailleovom pismu. Njihova je proizvodnja spora i ograničena. Primjenom sustava sinteze digitalnog teksta u govor, omogućen je izravan pristup svježim informacijama u dnevnom tisku i novoizašlim monografijama ukoliko se ideja o suradnji CIP ureda s autorima ostvari. Sve ovo ostvarivo je kako u knjižnicama tako i u arhivima i muzejima, kao jedna od mogućnosti suradnje u okruženju globalne informacijske infrastrukture.

    Automated subject classification of textual documents in the context of Web-based hierarchical browsing2011In: Knowledge organization, ISSN 0943-7444, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 230-244Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While automated methods for information organization have been around for several decades now, exponential growth of the World Wide Web has put them into the forefront of research in different communities, within which several approaches can be identified: 1) machine learning (algorithms that allow computers to improve their performance based on learning from pre-existing data); 2) document clustering (algorithms for unsupervised document organization and automated topic extraction); and 3) string matching (algorithms that match given strings within larger text). Here the aim was to automatically organize textual documents into hierarchical structures for subject browsing. The string-matching approach was tested using a controlled vocabulary (containing pre-selected and pre-defined authorized terms, each corresponding to only one concept). The results imply that an appropriate controlled vocabulary, with a sufficient number of entry terms designating classes, could in itself be a solution for automated classification. Then, if the same controlled vocabulary had an appropriate hierarchical structure, it would at the same time provide a good browsing structure for the collection of automatically classified documents.

    Abstract [en]

    Purpose– To provide an integrated perspective to similarities and differences between approaches to automated classification in different research communities (machine learning, information retrieval and library science), and point to problems with the approaches and automated classification as such.

    Design/methodology/approach– A range of works dealing with automated classification of full‐text web documents are discussed. Explorations of individual approaches are given in the following sections: special features (description, differences, evaluation), application and characteristics of web pages.

    Findings– Provides major similarities and differences between the three approaches: document pre‐processing and utilization of web‐specific document characteristics is common to all the approaches; major differences are in applied algorithms, employment or not of the vector space model and of controlled vocabularies. Problems of automated classification are recognized.

    Research limitations/implications– The paper does not attempt to provide an exhaustive bibliography of related resources.

    Practical implications– As an integrated overview of approaches from different research communities with application examples, it is very useful for students in library and information science and computer science, as well as for practitioners. Researchers from one community have the information on how similar tasks are conducted in different communities.

    Originality/value– To the author's knowledge, no review paper on automated text classification attempted to discuss more than one community's approach from an integrated perspective.

    Automated subject classification of textual Web pages, based on a controlled vocabulary: challenges and recommendations2006In: New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia, ISSN 1361-4568, E-ISSN 1740-7842, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 11-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The primary objective of this study was to identify and address problems of applying a controlled vocabulary in automated subject classification of textual Web pages, in the area of engineering. Web pages have special characteristics such as structural information, but are at the same time rather heterogeneous. The classification approach used comprises string-to-string matching between words in a term list extracted from the Ei (Engineering Information) thesaurus and classification scheme, and words in the text to be classified. Based on a sample of 70 Web pages, a number of problems with the term list are identified. Reasons for those problems are discussed and improvements proposed. Methods for implementing the improvements are also specified, suggesting further research.

    Automatic subject indexing of text2017In: ISKO: Encyclopedia of Knowledge Organization / [ed] Birger Hjørland, Claudio Gnoli, International Society for Knowledge Organization , 2017Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Automatic subject indexing addresses problems of scale and sustainability and can be at the same time used to enrich existing metadata records, establish more connections across and between resources from various metadata and resource collections, and enhance consistency of the metadata. In this entry automatic subject indexing focuses on assigning index terms or classes from established knowledge organization systems (KOS) for subject indexing like thesauri, subject headings systems and classification systems. The following major approaches are discussed, in terms of their similarities and differences, advantages and disadvantages for automatic assigned indexing from KOSs: “text categorization”, “document clustering”, and “document classification”. Text categorization is perhaps the most widespread, machine-learning approach with what seems generally good reported performance. This, however, is dependent on availability of training corpora with documents already categorized which are in many cases not there. Document clustering automatically both creates groups of related documents and extracts names of subjects depicting the group at hand. It does not require training documents, but the reported automatically extracted terms and structures are not always of good quality, reflecting the underlying problems of the natural language; also, they both change when new documents are added to the collection and this mutability may not be user-friendly. Document classification re-uses the intellectual effort invested into creating KOSs for subject indexing and even simple string-matching algorithms have been reported to achieve good results because one concept can be described using a number of different terms, including equivalent, related, narrower and broader terms. Finally, applicability of automatic subject indexing to operative information systems and challenges of evaluation are outlined, suggesting the need for more research.

    Digital Humanities Master at Linnaeus University2017In: 2nd International Symposium Digital Humanities: Empowering Visibility of Croatian Cultural Heritage: November 6 – 8, 2017, University of Zadar, Croatia, 2017, p. 21-21Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Linnaeus University has been leading several big initiatives at cross-sectora and cross- disciplinary axes over the past years, with the purpose of addressing future societal challenges. Digital Humanities is one of them; it has been receiving funds since 2016. Current big focus is placed on developing a Master program in Digital Humanities. The program is considered unique in that it defines a small core of obligatory courses and a big selection of elective from any relevant discipline at the university, grouped around three major suites: humanities, technology, business and economics. Further, major feature of the program is involving external sectors to the largest degree possible. The program will be given in the international online mode, free of charge to citizens of the European Union with a completed Bachelor degree. In order to test challenges and opportunities on this new interdisciplinary program, several courses were planned to be given in 2017 and 2018. The first course titled Programming for Digital Humanities is underway. The presentation will include these topics as well as discuss issues around bringing together different disciplines, students from different backgrounds, and teachers from different disciplines as well as from different sectors.

    Digital libraries and the blind and visually impaired2002Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Until recently, the blind and visually impaired have had a very restricted access to information. The reason is that the production of formats readable to them (such as Braille and audio), is rather slow as well as expensive and thus only a minute amount of published works has been made available in the adjusted formats. However, since digital formats have come into being, the situation has significantly changed for the better, primarily because of the possibility to use text-to-speech software that reads aloud digital text on the computer screen. This enables the blind and visually impaired to access digital information at the same time as anyone else and at no additional cost. Digital libraries on the World Wide Web are of particular importance in this context, both if they contain full-text documents or secondary information resources. The existing digital libraries and collections would be discussed from the blind and visually impaired user’s point of view, as well as taking into account accessibility issues from several aspects such as user interface and information seeking behaviour.

    Abstract [en]

    Living languages are in constant demand of new words. Whenever a new object or an idea need to be given a name, a lexical gap arises in the language. There are several different ways in which the gap can be filled. Generally speaking, one can distinguish between the three frequent ones: lexical borrowing, word formation and multiplication of meaning. This essay begins with a short general description of the methods and then follows the analysis of Internet terminology in Croatian with many examples.

    Evaluating automatic subject indexing: a framework2015In: 7th ISKO Italy Meeting, Bologna, 20 April, 2015, 2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to improve search for information by people, it is important to have a good idea to what degree is it possible to apply automated subject indexing or classification, based either on controlled indexing languages or on derived indexing of keywords from the resource at hand itself.

    Automated subject assignment has the potential to help deal with scale and sustainability in creating and enriching metadata, establishing more connections across and between resources and enhancing consistency. While some software vendors and experimental researchers claim automated tools can replace manual subject indexing, hard scientific evidence of their performance in operating information environments is scarce. A major reason for this is that research is usually conducted in laboratory conditions, excluding the complexities of real-life systems and situations.

    The talk reviews issues with existing evaluation approaches such as problems of aboutness and relevance assessments, implying the need to use more than a single "gold standard" method when evaluating indexing and retrieval. A comprehensive evaluation framework is proposed, informed by a review of the literature on manual and automated indexing.

    Three major steps are predicted.

    1. Automatically assigned terms are compared against a carefully crafted "gold standard". The "gold standard" of subject index terms is developed through input of professional catalogue librarians, end users who are experts in the subject at hand, end users who are inexperienced in the subject, as well as automated subject indexers.
    2. The evaluation takes place in the context of actual information retrieval. This step involves end users conducting actual searching on the indexed collection of resources and marking how relevant each retrieved resource is. The analysis also includes looking at what caused the retrieval of the document at hand: a cataloguer's term, subject expert's term, inexperienced user's term or an automated term.
    3. Third, the quality of computer-assisted indexing is evaluated in the context of an indexing workflow. Methodology is also enriched by log analysis and questionnaires to help contextualize the results.

    FROM THE LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SCIENCE DEPARTMENT TO THE UNIVERSITY-WIDE TRANSDISCIPLINARY ISCHOOL: A MODEL AT LINNAEUS UNIVERSITY2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The information field, or the iField, resorts to interdisciplinary approaches to enrich and facilitate generation, transfer and curation of data, information, and knowledge by the widespread use of technology in order to maximize the potential of humans. It is largely promoted by the iSchools organization (http://ischools.org). The idea to create an iSchool at Linnaeus University (LNU) was born in 2016, when LNU had already had a proven track of interdisciplinary and cross-institutional collaborations, both within the university and beyond, such as a Master program titled Innovation through Business, Engineering and Design and Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA) Centre of Excellence. Inspired by the new models to bridge traditional disciplinary and institutional boundaries, the iField seemed like an excellent platform through which to connect traditionally disparate departments, disciplines and non-academic institutions, in order to jointly address complex future societal challenges. In 2017 a project grant was awarded to explore the potential and identify the benefits of starting an iSchool and joining the iSchools organization. The idea was met with enthusiasm at a sufficient number of levels that the acting vice-chancellor at the time proposed a formation of an institute which is today named Information Institute (iInstitute, https://lnu.se/en/iinstitute). It comprises 14 existing programmes at undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels, of which 6 planned to be introduced from truly transdisciplinary perspectives of the iField, 4 research centres, and 1 collaborative node comprising over 200 IT companies. The iInstitute was approved membership in the iSchools organization in December 2017.

    Potential and Challenges of Subject Access in Libraries Today on the Example of Swedish Libraries2016In: The international information & library review, ISSN 1057-2317, E-ISSN 1095-9297, Vol. 48, no 3, p. 204-210Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The “Advances in Library Data and Access” column examines technological advances internal and external to libraries. The focus is on how library data is created and used. The strength of the column is its broad, international focus, and contributors are encouraged to explore issues and recent advances in information technology relevant to their geographical region, as well as the larger, global audience. Interested authors are invited to submit proposals and articles to the column editor at moulaisonhe@missouri.edu. Please include “IILR Submission” in the subject line of the e-mail.

    Ensuring quality subject access in information services is one of the major tasks in libraries and related information institutions. An exploratory study of Swedish library catalogs indicates that subject access is not addressed systematically, that in new digital collections knowledge organization systems are applied to a limited degree, and in integrated library and commercial databases the mappings between the different knowledge organization systems do not exist. Possibilities are suggested to help alleviate these issues, such as social tagging and automated subject indexing; how to best implement them calls for further research.

    Project methodology in subject-based knowledge organization: experiences from the UK2014In: Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA) Proceedings, 2014, Vol. 13Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Project management may involve a wide variety of methodologies depending on numerous factors such as sponsors, scope, stakeholders etc. This particular workshop will draw on experience from three research projects in the area of subject-based knowledge organization, all with the same funder (JISC – Joint Information Systems Committee) but different scopes and deliverables, stakeholders, time frame and international project teams. It will discuss various components of project management such as planning, catering for the funder/stakeholder needs and requirements, communication, delivering on time etc. This will include writing project documentation such as proposals, progress and final reports as well as project-specific deliverables. The workshop will draw on theories of project management as applied to the three specific research projects. While the projects are in the same broad subject area of knowledge organization, it aims to demonstrate general research-project methodology.

    Some Thoughts on Preserving Functions of Library Catalogs in Networked Environments2016In: Bulletin of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, ISSN 1931-6550, E-ISSN 1550-8366, Vol. 43, no 1, p. 23-25Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Classification and subject indexing systems have long been the mainstay of established information providers to deliver content precisely on topic. Logical semantic hierarchies and rich interconnections of related terms and synonyms enable accurate retrieval and browsing of similar resources and ideally should be available in online environments. But the cost of features may not be sustainable with massively growing resources. Efforts to merge databases and map disparate subject terminology require considerable human intervention. A possible solution combines controlled and uncontrolled terms from three sources: authoritative professional indexing, automated term suggestion and uncontrolled keywords proposed by authors or end users’ social tags. Research is required to investigate the effectiveness, cost and applicability of combining controlled and uncontrolled terms for information retrieval.

    Subject Access in Swedish Discovery Services2018In: Knowledge organization, ISSN 0943-7444, Vol. 45, no 4, p. 297-309Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While support for subject searching has been traditionally advocated for in library catalogs, often in the form of a catalog objective to find everything that a library has on a certain topic, research has shown that subject access has not been satisfactory. Many existing online catalogs and discovery services do not seem to make good use of the intellectual effort invested into assigning controlled subject index terms and classes. For example, few support hierarchical browsing of classification schemes and other controlled vocabularies with hierarchical structures, few provide end-user-friendly options to choose a more specific concept to increase precision, a broader concept or related concepts to increase recall, to disambiguate homonyms, or to find which term is best used to name a concept. Optimum subject access in library catalogs and discovery services is analyzed from the perspective of earlier research as well as contemporary conceptual models and cataloguing codes. Eighteen proposed features of what this should entail in practice are drawn. In an exploratory qualitative study, the three most common discovery services used in Swedish academic libraries are analyzed against these features. In line with previous research, subject access in contemporary interfaces is demonstrated to less than optimal. This is in spite of the fact that individual collections have been indexed with controlled vocabularies and a significant number of controlled vocabularies have been mapped to each other and are available in interoperable standards. Strategic action is proposed to build research-informed (inter)national standards and guidelines.
