The examination of core values attempted in this
book is to assist librarians, individually and
collectively, to focus on the attributes and
purposes of libraries that make them unique and
valuable. Gorman argues that libraries must
continue to acquire and give access to, arrange, make accessible,
and preserve the human record in all its manifestations and
formats, and provide assistance and instruction in its use.
Our Enduring Values Revisited takes you through the core values of
librarianship as it considers the most significant questions on the
minds of most librarians today, including:
•
•
•
•
What is the role of the library today?
What is librarianship in the 21st Century?
What do patrons and communities want from their libraries?
Will libraries be strengthened or destroyed by new and changing
technology?
• How can I maintain the core values of librarianship into the
future?
Readership: A must-read for progressive librarians everywhere, Our Enduring
Values Revisited will help you to define your role in the library of the future.
Essential Classification
Vanda Broughton, UCL, UK
Michael Gorman
Michael Gorman, a veteran of four decades of
library service and one of today's leading library
thinkers, revisits his classic discussion on library
values - those that are rooted in historical
perspective and those that can adapt to the ever
changing times of the 21st century.
Essential RDA is a practical guide to basic RDA
cataloguing that also includes an introduction to
foundational RDA concepts and vocabulary, and
incorporates paths to more complex practices
described in RDA. As an RDA cataloguing
resource, Essential RDA is structured on RDA
entities and elements in order to describe RDA
cataloguing practice in an accessible way.

Essential Classification leads the novice classifier
step by step through the basics of subject
cataloguing, with an emphasis on practical
document analysis and classification. It deals with
fundamental questions of the purpose of
classification in different situations, and the needs
and expectations of end users. The reader is
introduced to the ways in which document content
can be assessed, and how this can best be
expressed for translation into the language of
specific indexing and classification systems.
Fully updated to reflect changes to the major general schemes
(Library of Congress, LCSH, Dewey and UDC) since the first edition,
and with new chapters on working with informal classification, from
folksonomies to tagging and social media, this new edition will set
cataloguers on the right path.
Contents: 1. Introduction 2. The need for classification 3. First principles of
classification 4. The variety of classification: systems and structures 5. The
classification scheme: internal structure 6. Types of classification scheme 7. Order
in the classification scheme 8. Content analysis 1: document description 9. Content

Serials and continuing resources present a variety
of unique challenges in bibliographic management,

cooperative context of OCLC, CONSER and NACO. Jones looks in
detail at the process of cataloguing serials and ongoing integrating

made since the publication of the 2013 Revision.
9781783300426
Cataloguing practice described by RDA has not
altered dramatically due to these changes, but
over 70 percent of the pages in RDA Print was
impacted by the changes, making an RDA Print
update packet impracticable.
• The most current RDA—the revision contains all changes to
RDA up to and including the 2014 RDA Update approved by the
JSC. There are two types of changes to RDA that routinely take
place—Fast Track changes and RDA Updates. The JSC
periodically issues “Fast Track” changes to RDA to fix errors
and to clarify meaning. These changes do not typically change
cataloguing practice as described by RDA. An RDA Update is
issued annually. In an Update process the JSC considers
proposals to enhance and improve RDA as a cataloguing
standard. An update can and often does change the cataloguing
process described in RDA. The 2014 Revision includes all Fast
Track changes and RDA Updates since the 2013 publication of
RDA and through August 2014.
• New binding—the revision differs from past print versions of
RDA in that it is perfect bound volume rather than a loose-leaf
packet requiring a binder. Fast Track and Update changes to
RDA have proven to be very impactful in recent years, making
the loose-leaf packet with update packets impractical. For the
immediate future Print RDA will be offered as a perfect bound
volume.

solid introduction to the way in which the various
information disciplines, whether concerned with
security and protection or reuse and optimisation,
need to come together to ensure that information
remains useful yet is appropriately secured to

“Because the book is packed with so many topics, it
allows the reader to learn about areas that are often
glossed over in the daily running of a library; this is
partly because they occur seamlessly. This book
allows readers to take away sections of information
which can then be used to better integrate and
make more interoperable the digital libraries they
manage. This really is a must read for those working
in the digital library environment and for those who
wish to explore digital library concepts further.”
- Online Information Review
Exploring Digital Libraries is a highly readable, thought-provoking
authorative and in-depth treatment of the digital library arena that
provides an up-to-date overview of the progress, nature and future
impact of digital libraries, from their collections and technologycentred foundations over two decades ago to their emergent,
community-centred engagement with the social web.
This essential textbook:
• Brings students and working librarians up to date on the
progress, nature and impact of digital libraries, bridging the gap
since the publication of the best-known digital library texts
• Frames digital library research and practice in the context of the
social web and makes the case for moving beyond collections to
a new emphasis on libraries’ value to their communities
• Introduces several new frameworks and novel syntheses that
elucidate digital library themes, suggest strategic directions, and
break new ground in the digital library literature.
• Calls a good deal of attention to digital library research, but is
written from the perspective of strategy and in-depth experience
• Provides a global perspective and integrates material from many
sources in one place - the chapters on open repositories and
hybrid libraries draw together past, present and prospective
work in a way that is unique in the literature.
Contents: 1. Emergence and definitions of digital libraries 2. Outcomes of digital
libraries’ first decade 3. Key themes and challenges in digital libraries 4. Digital

Digital libraries and their communities 8. The prospects of open access repositories
9. Digital libraries and the social web: Scholarship 10. Digital libraries and the social

working librarians and library leaders to LIS students and educators, or anyone who

Paperback:
9781783300600
“Copyright is an area of growing concern to
educational institutions which provide online access
to materials. The complexity of the area has
sometimes discouraged educators from engaging
with it, but the practical suggestions and relevant
case studies included in this title, as well as the
provision of further readings makes this an excellent
reference guide, and one which educators will find
interesting as well as easy to understand.”
- Australian Academic and Research Libraries
Jane Secker has completely revised and updated this highly
successful text to take into account all the recent developments in
the field. Through its practically based overview of current and
emerging copyright issues facing those working in e-learning, this
book will help to break this barrier down and equip professionals
with the tools, skills and understanding they need to work
confidently and effectively in the virtual learning environment with
the knowledge that they are doing so legally.
New and developing services, software and other technologies are
being adapted in e-learning environments to engage students and
academic staff. These technologies present increasing challenges
to IPR and legal issues and this book will help librarians and
educators to meet them.
Key topics addressed include:
• Who owns the rights in works that are the product of
collaboration?
• What do you do if you can’t find the rights holders?
• The legal risks associated with Web 2.0
• digitizing published content for delivery in the VLE
• using multimedia in e-learning
• copyright issues and ‘born’ digital resources
• copyright in the emerging digital environment of Web 2.0
• copyright training for staff.
Readership: This book is essential reading for anyone working in education
including learning support staff and teachers using e-learning, learning
technologists, librarians, educational developers, instructional designers, IT staff
and trainers. It is also relevant for anyone working in the education sector from
school level to higher education, and those developing learning resources in
commercial organizations and the public sector including libraries, museums and
archives, and government departments.

“However working environments change in the
years to come there will always be a need to collect,
organize and provide access to health information.
These tasks will be performed by someone but not
necessarily by librarians, so if our profession wants
to avoid sliding into insignificance we will need to
understand how to step into the roles that are
emerging. This book essentially offers the library
profession a survival guide to working in
healthcare.”

“This book is of great value to any librarian seeking
to find ways to integrate literacy into a classroom. It
will also be useful to any instructional designer
wanting to integrate the ever-growing number of
literacies into the development sessions offered to
faculty.”
- ARBA
This new book presents a comprehensive structure for information
literacy theory that will help your students grasp an understanding
of the critical thinking and reflection required to engage in
technology spaces as savvy producers, collaborators, and sharers.
Today’s learners communicate, create, and share information using
a range of information technologies such as social media, blogs,
microblogs, wikis, mobile devices and apps, virtual worlds, and
MOOCs.
In their new book, respected information literacy experts Mackey
and Jacobson present a comprehensive structure for information
literacy theory that builds on decades of practice while recognizing
the knowledge required for an expansive and interactive
information environment. The concept of metaliteracy expands the
scope of traditional information skills (determine, access, locate,
understand, produce, and use information) to include the
collaborative production and sharing of information in participatory
digital environments (collaborate, produce, and share) prevalent in
today’s world.
Combining theory and case studies, the authors: show why media
literacy, visual literacy, digital literacy, and a host of other specific
literacies are critical for informed citizens in the 21st century; offer
a framework for engaging in today’s information environments as
active, self-reflective, and critical contributors to these collaborative
spaces; and connect metaliteracy to such topics as metadata, the
semantic web, metacognition, open education, distance learning,
and digital storytelling.
Contents: : Foreword – Sheila Webber 1. Developing a metaliteracy framework to
promote metacognitive learning 2. Metaliteracy in the open age of social media 3.
Metaliteracy as an integrated model of related literacies 4. Global trends in
emerging literacies 5. Survey of the field: from theoretical frameworks to praxis 6.
The evolution of a dedicated information literacy course toward mtaliteracy 7.
Exploring digital storytelling from a metaliteracy perspective.
Readership: Any librarian involved in teaching information literacy, LIS students,

“Devine and Egger-Sider make a convincing case in
arguing that educators and librarians need to
hammer home the importance of using a toolbox of
search techniques rather than simply relying on one
or two that only skim the web’s surface.”
- Times Higher Education
This highly practical guide focuses on strategies and teaching tools
for getting more out of the ‘deep’ or ‘invisible’ web, enabling
students and users to tap into the wealth of material that isn’t to be
found on Google or other mainstream search engines.
Building upon the authors’ previous well respected book, Going
Beyond Google, which placed teaching the invisible web into
information literacy programmes, Going Beyond Google Again
expands on the teaching foundation laid in the first book and
continues to document the invisible web’s existence and evolution,
and suggests ways of teaching students to use it.
Contents: PART I: WHAT IS THE INVISIBLE WEB NOW? 1. The invisible web
today 2. Studies of Information-seeking behaviour PART II: HOW WILL THE
INVISIBLE WEB MAKE STUDENTS BETTER RESEARCHERS? 3. Teaching the
invisible web: a survey of theory and practice 4. How to make students better
researchers: the invisible web in teaching 5. Teaching resources PART III: TOOLS
FOR MINING THE INVISIBLE WEB AND A LOOK AT ITS FUTURE 6. Looking
inside the invisible web: a sampler 7. Future of the invisible web and its implications
for teaching.
Readership: Librarians, teachers and LIS lecturers will find ample support,
research and resources to take students beyond the limitations of traditional web
searching. Students and researchers will find new tools and techniques to unlock
the power of the invisible web and go even further beyond Google.

- Libfocus
Based on groundbreaking research, undertaken by the authors as
part of the prestigious Arcadia Programme at Cambridge University,
this book presents a new and dynamic information literacy
curriculum developed for the 21st century information professional.
The authors adopt a broad definition of information literacy that
encompasses social as well as academic environments and
situates IL as a fundamental attribute of the discerning scholar and
the informed citizen. It seeks to address in a modular, flexible and
holistic way the developing information needs of students entering
higher education over the next five years.
The book is organized around the ten ‘strands’ of the new
curriculum, which cover the whole landscape of information literacy
development required to succeed as an undergraduate in higher
education. Interweaving the authors' research and the reflections of
internationally recognized experts from the library, education and
information literacy sectors, including Moira Bent, Andy Priestner,
Sarah Pavey, Geoff Walton and Elizabeth Tilley, it illustrates how
and why this new curriculum will work in practice. Detailed
appendices present the curriculum, lesson plans and tools for
institutional audit, giving readers all the tools they need to
implement it successfully in their institutions.

This new book provides an accessible introduction to the following:
• What is an ontology? Defining the concept and why it is
increasingly important to the information professional.
• Ontologies and the semantic web
• Existing ontologies, such as SKOS, OWL, FOAF, schema.org,
and the DBpedia Ontology
• Adopting and building ontologies, showing how to avoid
repetition of work and how to build a simple ontology with
Protégé
• Interrogating semantic web ontologies
• The future of ontologies and the role of the information
professional in their development and use.
“...an invaluable starting point for undergraduate
and graduate information science students looking
for ideas for essay and research topics, and also as
an illustration of how to write good literature
reviews. There must be around 500 or more papers
cited in total, and anyone in the IR community and
many in enterprise search would benefit from the
insights provided by the authors. Definitely a fivestar rating.”

especially if one's favourable opinion shows up on
the cover of the second edition for attracting
readers's attention. Nevertheless, I thought that it is
worth repeating myself six and a half years later
because this edition is as good as the first one.”

service impact and to address their own impact questions in their
planning. The 2nd edition is fully updated to include international
approaches to qualitative library evaluation, new international
research, and current debates on the evolving nature of evaluation,
as well as reflections on the importance of involving stakeholders
and of evaluation to guide advocacy.
Readership: Practising library and information service managers and policy
makers in the field. LIS policy shapers and managers in public, education (schools,
further and higher education), health and special libraries and information services
working in any country or internationally and people engaged in professional
education in the field such as lecturers or students.

“I recommend this book for those people who make
the decisions in all libraries because advances in
automation and the information age are coming to
all of us whether we like it or not.”
- Technicalities
In this systematic attempt to speak to academic
and public librarians about the future of library services, Hernon
and Matthews invite a raft of contributors to step back and envision
the type of future library that will generate excitement and
enthusiasm among users and stakeholders. Anyone interested in
the future of libraries will be engaged and stimulated as the
contributors:
• Examine the current state of the library, summarizing existing
literature on the topic to sketch in historical background
• Project into the future, using SWOT analysis, environmental
scans, and other techniques to posit how library infrastructure
(such as staff, collections, technology, and facilities) can adapt
in the decades ahead
• Construct potential scenarios that library leaders can use to
forge paths for their own institutions.
The collection of knowledge and practical wisdom in this book will
help academic and public libraries find ways to honour their
missions while planning for the broader institutional changes
already underway.
Readership: Library managers, academic and public librarians, LIS students and
academics and anyone interested in the future of libraries.

Communications and collaboration in a web
2.0 world
Edited by Elizabeth Lomas, Northumbria
University, UK
Most organizational information is now created and
carried as communications (email, instant
messaging, Facebook etc). These communications
may be inside an organization’s networks or
externally on hosted social networks. This book
confronts the difficult reality of the divided information world we
now need to work with and manage. It investigates why this is the
case and then puts relevant management structures and solutions
in place.

Information 2.0
New models of information production,

Martin De Saulles, University of Brighton, UK
March 2015
192pp| £49.95
Paperback:
9781783300099
This textbook rovides an overview of the digital
information landscape and explains the
implications of the technological changes for the
information industry, from publishers and
broadcasters to the information professionals who
manage information in all its forms.
This fully-updated second edition includes
examples of organizations and individuals who are seizing on the
opportunities thrown up by this once-in-a-generation technological
shift providing a cutting-edge guide to where we are going both as
information consumers and in terms of broader societal changes.
Each chapter explores aspects of the information lifecycle,
including production, distribution, storage and consumption and
contains case studies chosen to illustrate particular issues and
challenges facing the information industry.
One of the key themes of the book is the way that organizations,
public and commercial, are blurring their traditional lines of
responsibility. Amazon is moving from simply selling books to
offering the hardware and software for reading them. Apple still
makes computer hardware but also manages one of the world’s
leading marketplaces for music and software applications. Google
maintains its position as the most popular internet search engine
but has also digitized millions of copies of books from leading
academic libraries and backed the development of the world’s most
popular computing platform, Android. At the heart of these changes
are the emergence of cheap computing devices for decoding and
presenting digital information and a network which allows the bits
and bytes to flow freely, for the moment at least, from producer to
consumer.
While the digital revolution is impacting on everyone who works
with information, sometimes negatively, the second edition of
Information 2.0 shows that the opportunities outweigh the risks for
those who take the time to understand what is going on. Information
has never been more abundant and accessible so those who know
how to manage it for the benefit of others in the digital age will be in
great demand.
Contents: 1. Introduction 2. New models of information production 3. New models
of information storage 4. New models of information distribution 5. New models of
information consumption 6. Conclusion.
Readership: Students taking courses in library and information science, publishing
and communication studies, with particular relevance to core modules exploring the
information society and digital information. Academics and practitioners who need
to get to grips with the new information environment.

This series provides a set of advanced textbooks that cover all
aspects of the information sciences. Each book is rooted in the
research literature of LIS and related areas, gives clearly
structured introductions to important topics within information
sciences and will bring the reader to a full understanding of the
latest state of research and practice in its topic. Future
volumes will feature topics including search, collection
disciplines, digital culture and information architecture.
If you want to provide an information service that
truly fulfils your users' needs, this book is essential
reading.
Analysing and assessing the information needs of
clients is key to the provision of effective service
and appropriate collections in both face-to-face and virtual library
services. The importance of information needs analysis is widely
recognized by information professionals, but currently there is little
substantive, detailed work in the professional literature devoted to
this important topic.
This new book is designed to fill that gap, by supporting
practitioners in developing an information needs analysis strategy,
and offering the necessary professional skills and techniques to do
so. It will offer guidance to team leaders and senior managers in all
areas of library work, especially those involved in collection
management, service provision and web development, and is
equally applicable to the needs of academic, public, government,
commercial and other more specialized library and information
services. The text adopts a hands-on, jargon-free approach, and
includes relevant examples, case studies, reader activities and
sources of further reading.
Contents: 1. Background to needs analysis for information managers 2. The
importance of context in information needs analysis 3. Models and types of
information needs analysis 4. The stages of information needs analysis 5.
Gathering data for information needs analyses 6. Gathering data from existing
sources 7. Gathering data through surveys 8. Gathering data through interviews 9.

A landmark edited collection bringing together
global experts on the impact of new technology on
information services.
Covering a range of key topics around discovery
and preservation, this book explores the role of information
professionals in a rapidly changing digital landscape that is
challenging the very existence of the traditional library. Focusing on
the issues surrounding the transition from an analogue to a digital
environment, contributors examine whether analogue practices and
procedure are still valid and if they shape or distort those in the
digital. The digital environment has the potential to transform
scholarship and break down barriers between academia and the
wider community through social networks and crowd sourcing, and
this thought-provoking collection draws out both the inherent
challenges and the opportunities.

“The two principal authors have professional
experience in a variety of roles and organisations,
and this is very evident in the attention to detail they
bring to the subject. Overall, this is a comprehensive
introduction to the management of libraries and will
more than likely be a prescribed text for library
science students at undergraduate and
postgraduate levels.”
- Australian Library Journal
Completely revised and expanded to reflect the rapidly changing
sphere of information services, this comprehensive introduction to
the management of libraries builds the basic skills good library
managers must exercise. The authors offer an authoritative
approach on the fundamental concepts of management while
recognizing the diverse needs of different operating environments.
Drawing from examples of successful leadership techniques from a
variety of services - archives, information brokers, libraries, records
managements and more, this book demonstrates the most effective
ways to plan, delegate, make decisions, communicate, and lead a
team. Equal emphasis is placed on personal, fiscal, and
technological issues, as well as a look at what the future may hold
for incoming managers.
Readership: LIS educators, new and experienced librarians in management
positions, students, and anyone wishing to acquire a sound knowledge of both the
theory and practice of management within the changing information workforce.

interrelationships among different metadata types,
400pp | £54.95
Paperback: Zeng and Qin’s thorough revision of their
9781783300525 benchmark text offers a comprehensive look at the
metadata schemas that exist in the world of library
and information science and beyond, as well as the contexts in
which they operate. Cementing its value as both an LIS text and a
handy reference for professionals already in the field, this book:
• Lays out the fundamentals of metadata, including principles of
metadata, structures of metadata vocabularies, and metadata
descriptions
• Surveys metadata standards and their applications in distinct
domains and for various communities of metadata practice
• Examines metadata building blocks, from modelling to defining
properties, and from designing application profiles to
implementing value vocabularies
• Describes important concepts as resource identification,
metadata as linked data, consumption of metadata,
interoperability, and quality measurement
• Offers an updated glossary to help readers navigate metadata’s
complex terms in easy-to-understand definitions.
An online resource of web extras, packed with exercises, quizzes,
and links to additional materials, completes this definitive primer on
metadata.

Paperback:
9781856046671
“Hider explains clearly the wide range of metadata
that exists, and helps the reader further by guiding
through the book with cross-references and
direction. We know there is “more on this to come in
the next chapter” or if we missed a detail, we can go
back and locate it in context. This is useful for those
learning the subject, as well as the more expert
reader. Hider does an impressive job tying together
so many different aspects of metadata and
providing the “big picture”, and the book is highly
accessible and engaging.”
- Library Management
This timely book employs the unifying mechanism of the semantic
web and the resource description framework to integrate the
various traditions and practices of information and knowledge
organization. Uniquely, it covers both the domain-specific traditions
and practices and the practices of the ‘metadata movement’
through a single lens – that of resource description in the broadest,
semantic web sense.
This approach more readily accommodates coverage of the new
Resource Description and Access (RDA) standard, which aims to
move library cataloguing into the centre of the semantic web. The
work surrounding RDA looks set to revolutionise the field of
information organization, and this book will bring both the standard
and its model and concepts into focus.
Readership: LIS students taking information organization courses at
undergraduate and postgraduate levels, information professionals wishing to
specialise in the metadata area, and existing metadata specialists who wish to
update their knowledge.

metadata, giving readers the tools and understanding to achieve
maximum results with limited resources. Readers will learn how to
critically assess and use (semi-)automated methods of managing
metadata through hands-on exercises within the book and on the
accompanying website. Each chapter is built around a case study
from institutions around the world, demonstrating how freely
available tools are being successfully used in different metadata
contexts.
This handbook delivers the necessary conceptual and practical
understanding to empower practitioners to make the right decisions
when making their organisations resources accessible on the Web

“Human factors in recordkeeping - the elephant in
the room. This is the book that was waiting to be
written. Thanks to Oliver and Foscarini, we no
longer have to wait to read it. It comes highly
recommended.”
- Australian Library Journal
This book explores how an understanding of organisational
information culture provides the insight necessary for the
development and promotion of sound recordkeeping practices. It
details an innovative framework for analysing and assessing
information culture, and indicates how to use this knowledge to
change behaviour and develop recordkeeping practices that are
aligned with the specific characteristics of any workplace.
This framework addresses the widely recognised problem of
improving organisation-wide compliance with a records
management programme by tackling the different aspects that
make up the organisation’s information culture. Discussion of
topics at each level of the framework includes strategies and
guidelines for assessment, followed by suggestions for next steps:
appropriate actions and strategies to influence behavioural change.
Contents: 1. Background and context 2. The value accorded to records 3.
Information preferences 4. Language considerations and regional technological
infrastructure 5. Information related competencies 6. Awareness of environmental
requirements relating to records 7. Corporate information technology governance 8.
Trust in recordkeeping systems 9. Bringing it all together.
Readership: Archivists, records managers and information technology specialists
will find this an invaluable guide to improving their practice and solving the ‘people
problem’ of non-compliance with records management programmes. LIS students
taking archives and records management modules will also benefit from the
application of theory into practice. Records management and information
management educators will find the ideas and approaches discussed in this book
useful to add an information culture perspective to their curricula.

“This book contains an encyclopaedic wealth of
detail on the status of records and information
management in our evolving digital world. The
amount of research, the attention to detail, and the
effort that has gone into the presentation of each
chapter with sidebars, down to the italicised font
drawing attention to key terms, has to be viewed to
be fully appreciated...The previously held view that
librarianship and records management were two
separate disciplines needs to be discarded. In this
day and age the boundaries are interchangeable
and in some cases non-existent. This book bridges
the gap for librarians, allowing them to cross the
boundary into information and records
management.”
- Australian Library Journal
This book provides a comprehensive, strategic approach to the
creation, management, and disposition of information and records
in organisations and is the first to analyse the impact that cloud
computing and emerging technologies such as social networks and
microblogging has on records management programmes.
The emergence of Web 2.0 and social media has fundamentally
changed the way information is created, exchanged, and stored.
Information is a valuable asset to be employed by the organisation to
help meet its goals, but it can also pose a risk to the organisation if
not effectively managed. The increasingly complex regulatory and
legal environment, along with the growing volume and changing
nature of records and information created through emerging
technologies, has brought records and information management to
the attention of executives who are ultimately responsible for the
success or failure of their organisations. This book provides readers
either an introduction to or a review of records management
principles and practices, but with a consideration of the impact on
those principles and practices made by records created through the
use of emerging technologies and stored in the clouds.
Contents: Governance Program on a solid RIM Foundation 3. Records and
Information Creation/Capture, Classification, and File Plan Development 4. Records
Retention Strategies: Inventory, Appraisal, Retention, and Disposition 5. Records and
Information Access, Storage, and Retrieval 6. Electronic Records and Electronic
Records Management Systems 7. Emerging Technologies and Records Management
8. Vital Records, Disaster Preparedness and Recovery, and Business Continuity 9.
Monitoring, Auditing, and Risk Management 10. Inactive Records Management,
Archives, and Long-Term Preservation 11. Records Management Education and
Training 12. From Records Management to Information Governance, An Evolution.
Readership: This book will be of interest to students of archives and records
management, experienced archives and records professionals who want a new
perspective on their chosen field, supervisors and managers with the responsibility
for records and information management and upper-level managers, executives,
and other decision makers who are responsible for effectively managing their
organisation's information assets.

The importance of data has never been greater.
There has been a growing concern with the ‘skills
gap’ required to exploit the data surfeit; the ability
to collect, compute and crunch data, for economic,
social and scientific purposes. This book, written
by two working data librarians based at the
Universities of Oxford and Edinburgh aims to help
fill this skills gap by providing a nuts and bolts
guide to research data support.
A Data Librarian’s Handbook draws on a combination of over 30
years’ experience providing data support services to create the
‘must-read’ book for all entrants to this field. This book ‘zooms in’
to the actual library service level, where the interaction between the
researcher and the librarian takes place. Both engaging and
practical, this book draws the reader in through story-telling and
suggested activities, linking concepts from one chapter to another.
Contents: 1.Data librarianship: responding to research innovation 2. What’s
different about data? 3. Building data collections 4. Playing with data 5. The
essentials of data repositories 6. Supporting literacy in data 7. Service and policy:
working across your institution 8. Data Management Plans as a calling card 9.
Dealing with sensitive data 10. Open data, open access, open science.
Readership: This book is for the practicing data librarian, possibly new in their post
with little experience of providing data support. It is also for managers and policymakers, public service librarians, research data management “coordinators” and
data support staff. It will also appeal to students and lecturers in iSchools and other
library and information degree programmes where academic research support is
taught.

- Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship
Step-by-step guidance to setting up and running effective
institutional research data management services to support
researchers and networks.
The research landscape is changing, with key global research
funders now requiring institutions to demonstrate how they will
preserve and share research data. However, the practice of
structured research data management is very new, and the
construction of services remains experimental and in need of
models and standards of approach. This groundbreaking guide will
lead researchers, institutions and policy makers through the
processes needed to set up and run effective institutional research
data management services.
This ‘how to’ guide provides a step-by-step explanation of the
components for an institutional service. Case studies from the
newly emerging service infrastructures in the UK, USA and
Australia draw out the lessons learnt. Different approaches are
highlighted and compared; for example, a researcher-focused
strategy from Australia is contrasted with a national, top-down
approach, and a national research data management service is
discussed as an alternative to institutional services.
Contents: 1. A patchwork of change - Graham Pryor 2. Options and approaches to
RDM service provision - Graham Pryor 3. Who’s doing data? A spectrum of roles,
responsibilities and competences - Graham Pryor 4. A pathway to sustainable
research data services: from scoping to sustainability - Angus Whyte 5. The range
and components of RDM infrastructure and services - Sarah Jones 6. Case study

Case study 2: University of Southampton – a partnership approach to research data
management - Mark L Brown and Wendy White 8. Case study 3: Monash
University, a strategic approach - Anthony Beitz, David Groenewegen, Cathrine
Harboe-Ree, Wilna Macmillan and Sam Searle 9. Case study 4: a national solution
– the UK Data Service - Matthew Woollard and Louise Corti 10. Case study 5:
development of institutional RDM services by projects in the Jisc Managing
Research Data programmes - Simon Hodson and Laura Molloy.
Readership: This book will be an invaluable guide to those entering a new and
untried enterprise. It will be particularly relevant to heads of libraries, information
technology managers, research support office staff and research directors planning
for these types of services. It will also be of interest to researchers, funders and
policy makers as a reference tool for understanding how shifts in policy will have a
range of ramifications within institutions. Library and information science students
will find it an informative window on an emerging area of practice.

- Journal of Pedagogic Development
The long-awaited 2nd edition of this best-selling
research methods handbook is fully updated and
includes brand new coverage of online research
methods and techniques, mixed methodology and
qualitative analysis.
This edition includes two new contributed chapters: Professor Julie
McLeod, Sue Childs and Elizabeth Lomas focus on research data
management, applying evidence from the recent JISC funded
‘DATUM’ project; Dr Andrew Shenton examines strategies for
analysing existing documents.
The first to focus entirely on the needs of the information and
communications community, this handbook guides the would-be
researcher through the variety of possibilities open to them under
the heading ‘research’ and provides students with the confidence to
embark on their dissertations. The focus here is on the ‘doing’ and
although the philosophy and theory of research is explored to
provide context, this is essentially a practical exploration of the
whole research process with each chapter fully supported by
examples and exercises tried and tested over a whole teaching
career.

environmental sustainability.
Taking as its starting point the premise that digital
information systems and services form the
backbone of a knowledge society and digital
economy, this book explores the challenges of
ensuring sustainability of information in an evolving digital world.

Practical guidance to ensuring that your users can access and
personalise the online resources they are entitled to use with the
minimum of fuss.
With the rapid increase in the use of electronic resources in

technologies and how they work. This includes an overview of
federated access management technologies, such as Shibboleth,
that have gained increasing international recognition in recent
years. This book provides detailed case studies describing how
access management is being implemented at organizational and
national levels in the UK, USA and Europe, and gives a practical
guide to the resources available to help plan, implement and
operate access management in libraries.

"This book is a great starting point for anyone
interested in using mobile technologies to deliver
library services but not sure where to start. It's easy
to read, the language used is jargon free, and the
opportunities and challenges are fully explained.
However it's not so simple that it wouldn't appeal to
those who have a bit more knowledge and I can see
myself consulting it regularly."

engines, and the secrets of finding hidden content
online’.”
