What are the pros and cons of keeping discovery local? This talk will explore the user interaction, interface design, and user expectations of such homegrown interfaces.

Auditorium Speaker - David Weinberger Author Event, Speaker series Anaheim Convention Center
Ballroom DE
Description :

David Weinberger is a celebrated Internet philosopher and co-author of The Cluetrain Manifesto. His most recent book, Too Big to Know, provides a compelling vision of the future of knowledge in a connected world, shaking the foundations of our concept of knowledge—from the role of facts to the value of books and the authority of experts. “We used to know how to know. We got our answers from books or experts. We’d nail down the facts and move on. But in the Internet age, knowledge has moved onto networks. There’s more knowledge than ever, of course, but it’s different. Topics have no boundaries, and nobody agrees on anything.”

Weinberger describes Too Big to Know as being “about what happens to knowledge and expertise now that we are faced with the fact that there is way way way more to know than can be known by any individual. Its hypothesis is that knowledge and expertise are becoming networks, and are taking on the properties of networks.” The book shows how business, science, education, and the government are learning to use networked knowledge to understand more than ever and to make smarter decisions.

A senior researcher at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for the Internet & Society, and co-director of the Harvard Library Innovation Lab, Weinberger is also the author of Small Pieces Loosely Joined and Everything is Miscellaneous. His writing has appeared in Wired, Smithsonian, The Guardian, USA Today, TV Guide, Information Week, The New York Times, and The Boston Globe, and he has been a frequent commentator on National Public Radio. He has been a strategic marketing advisor to high tech companies, an Internet advisor to presidential campaigns. , and has a Ph.D. in philosophy.

Weinberger’s appearance is sponsored by Basic Books.

Un-Tethered Electronic Resources Management: Reaching Out Beyond Your Library Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 2
Description :

Electronic resources management (ERM) is a patchwork business of strategically organizing the interconnectivity of resources, tools, systems, and staff. Coordination is critical, not only in the library, but throughout the organization. It was discovered that the purchase of electronic resources was occurring both in the library and in various departments at the University of Maryland University College (UMUC). The departments were not coordinating their purchases of electronic resources, resulting in inefficiencies in cost, licensing, and staffing. It was then decided to coordinate ERM functions throughout UMUC, setting up directional changes both in the library and UMUC as a whole. A plan is proposed to un-tether ERM and set up a central electronic resources processing unit for the coordination of the acquisition, licensing, and management of electronic resources by using business process management (BPM) processes and taking advantage of value chains throughout UMUC. A workflow diagram was developed to map out the new process between the library, academic departments, course development, and procurement. Expansion of ERM will result in economies of scale not previously seen and will, most importantly, ultimately reduce costs. It will further address issues of quality and consistency of electronic resources license agreements and enable greater understanding of the curricular requirements.

Creating an Interactive and Engaging Subject Guide with SpicyNodes Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 3
Description :

SpicyNodes is a newly developed web authoring tool that allows teachers, librarians, and users in other trades to create interactive resource guides on any topic for various purposes. It employs radial-map visualization technology that can offer end-users the opportunity to explore and learn complicated concepts or subjects with ease. A radial-map basically consists of trees and graphs functioning like a spider web. Users can move freely from node to node in any direction they wish. It is similar to a concept map search engine provided by some database vendors, for example Credo Reference database's visual search. Each tree node can be displayed like a simple web page containing hyperlinks pointing to an image, a video clip, and/or a source page accessible on the Web. A node can also link to other nodes covering the same area within the map. Like other social network websites, SpicyNodes also provides sharing, collaboration, and website embedding features. This poster will demonstrate a subject guide created with this tool for a second year seminar course entitled "Japan through Literature and Films" taught at Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts. Pros and cons of this tool and the subject guide will be examined.
