Facebook has always had a policy of requiring users to supply their real name on the site. Enforcement has been lax, but there's still a risk of getting caught. Here's how to fly under the radar if you need to.

Libraries and the Internet Toolkit | Intellectual Freedom Manual 8

Libraries and the Internet Toolkit | Intellectual Freedom Manual 8 | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

At the 2012 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Dallas, TX, the Intellectual Freedom Committee approved the final draft of the revised and updated “Libraries and Internet Toolkit: Tips and Guidance for Managing and Communicating about the Internet.” The toolkit is now available as a downloadable PDF.

 

The new toolkit is intended to be a practical guide to managing Internet services in libraries of all types. It includes up-to-date information on filtering, the requirements of the Children’s Internet Protection Act, the use of, and access to, social media in libraries, guidelines on developing Internet policies, and practical advice on handling messaging and communications concerning library Internet services.

Decentralised internet governance: the case of a ‘peer-to-peer cloud’ | Internet Policy Review

The architecture of a networked system is its underlying technical structure - its logical and structural layout. In my last article for theInternet Policy Review (Musiani, 2013a), I have built upon the work of several authors in science and technology studies, economics, law and computer science (e.g. Star, 1999; van Schewick, 2010; Elkin-Koren, 2006; Agre, 2003) to discuss the idea of network architecture as internet governance. I have suggested that, by changing the design of the networks subtending internet-based services and the global internet itself, the politics of the network of networks are affected – the balance of rights between users and providers, the capacity of online communities to engage in open and direct interaction, the fair competition between actors of the internet market.

Librarians move to fill void for 'digital natives'

Librarians move to fill void for 'digital natives' | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
The University of Western Ontario - Western provides the best student experience among Canada's leading research-intensive universities.

 

University-age students today are sometimes referred to as ‘digital natives’ – a group of people who have grown up with the Internet. But many young people are unsure of how to use computers and the Internet beyond social media or web-browsing purposes. Librarians are now helping students fill this digital void.

 

Libraries are looking to teach students how to optimize research and many now offer workshops on how to make sense of the information they find.  Librarians provide instruction on how to search efficiently within academic databases, using simple tricks such as adding brackets and asterisks to narrow down searches.

 

Nowadays, it’s important to recognize not all students are tech-savvy and for libraries to have support services for students through liaison librarians. These librarians spend time in research-intensive classes introducing students to the library resources available to them.
