Librarians Want Offline Ebook Access, Says ebrary Survey

Librarians Want Offline Ebook Access, Says ebrary Survey | Academic libraries - bibliothèques académiques | Scoop.it
ebrary announced the results of its Download Survey for which it asked more than 1,000 participating librarians about mobile and offline access to ebooks.

 

"The survey found that librarians know their patrons value the portability of ebooks, which led 92% of respondents to say that providing offline access to ebooks was at least as important as providing online access to them, if not more so.

 

ebrary also asked librarians about the importance of usability, tethering systems, ebook loan periods, and single-user licenses. The survey results, along with a paper by Allen McKiel, Ph.D., the dean of library services at Western Oregon University, are publicly available online at www.tfaforms.com/222151

Assessing contribution of research in business to practice

Assessing contribution of research in business to practice | Academic libraries - bibliothèques académiques | Scoop.it

This editorial offers some thoughts on wider criteria of evaluation than journal and article impact metrics. The editorial suggests that the measurement of journal and article impact metrics simply confirms the status quo rather than the promotion of resonance between practice, research and theory. The editorial proposes a more holistic recognition of impact, influence and usefulness that elevates the importance of three further dimensions of application, context and involvement. The editorial considers the value of scientific research to business practitioners and students concluding that an ingenuous and on-going scheme of exchange between scholars and practitioners would lead to cross-fertilization of ideas and experience and enhance empathy, learning and understanding. The alternative pursuit of scientific “respectability” by scholars in the most myopic academic sense has become less and less useful to students as well as the business community leaving the suspicion of business schools obsessed with making money whilst pretending to pursue knowledge and produce future citizens to make the world a better place.

Nimble - Augmented Reality book-based library

One of the places where the tension between searching and browsing is readily apparent is the library. We go to search for a book, do research, or just read and work.

Quantifying the Impact and Relevance of Scientific Research

Quantifying the Impact and Relevance of Scientific Research | Academic libraries - bibliothèques académiques | Scoop.it

Qualitative and quantitative methods are being developed to measure the impacts of research on society, but they suffer from serious drawbacks associated with linking a piece of research to its subsequent impacts. We have developed a method to derive impact scores for individual research publications according to their contribution to answering questions of quantified importance to end users of research. To demonstrate the approach, here we evaluate the impacts of research into means of conserving wild bee populations in the UK. For published papers, there is a weak positive correlation between our impact score and the impact factor of the journal. The process identifies publications that provide high quality evidence relating to issues of strong concern. It can also be used to set future research agendas.

Musings about librarianship: 3 things to show at library sessions

Some students might think we librarians are out of touch that we librarian just use our library catalogues and subscribed databases and know little of Google/Wikipedia etc. As such I always try to mention some "real-world" scenarios to signal that I am well aware of the strong google/wikipedia tendencies of well pretty much everybody. Here are some material I am thinking of using or have made use of in the past.

1. Libraries let people read your books. I know, I know, you think that if it weren't for libraries more people would buy your books, I have bad news for you, if it weren't for libraries people would read less not buy more books.
