Book Description :

Pathways into Information Literacy and Communities of Practice: Teaching Approaches and Case Studies considers the specific information literacy needs of communities of practice. As such, the book fills a gap in the literature, which has treated information literacy extensively, but has not applied it to the area of communities of practice. Since every community of practice generates, seeks, retrieves, and uses resources and sources related to the cognitive structure being researched or studied, and the tasks being performed, the need arises to undertake studies focused on real user communities, especially at a graduate level. This edited collection presents contributions from an international perspective on this key topic in library and information science. Contributions are arranged into two sections, the first exploring teaching and learning processes, and the second presenting case studies in communities of practice, including, but not limited to, health, research environments, college students, and higher education. Focuses on communities of practice, including health, research, and higher education and their distinct information needs Includes chapters from an international and experienced set of contributors Presents an interdisciplinary perspective on the topic

Book Description :

The research surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) is vast and quite diverse in both its applied and theoretical fields. AI tools and techniques, such as machine learning, data mining, neural networks, and advanced analytics, are evolving at a high speed, creating a consistent need for updated research. This is especially relevant with frequent developments for the application of AI technology in many science and industry sectors. This rapid expansion created a need for research that focuses on the questions surrounding the development of AI such as ethical issues, responsible AI methods and applications, and its widespread implementation. Within the answers to these questions is the prevailing notion that AI should be accountable, explainable, transparent, and fair for all organizations and individuals. Responsible AI and Ethical Issues for Businesses and Governments widens the understanding of AI outside of the “narrow” technical perspective to a broader viewpoint that embraces the links between AI theory, practice, and policy. The chapters in this book discuss the basic philosophical and conceptual foundations of AI and explores the responsible application of AI tools and methods, the moral aspects of AI, practical issues, and responsible AI implementation across a range of industries. While highlighting topics that include digital transformation, ethical competence, information literacy in AI, and the interaction between AI and humans, this book is ideally designed for IT specialists, technology developers, technologists, ethicists, practitioners, stakeholders, academicians, students, and researchers who are interested in learning more about the ethical and responsible use of AI.

Book Description :

Business and information managers have struggled to meet several challenges in aligning information strategies and business cultures. The consequences of a misalignment or misfit of strategy and culture are well known in business literature, and better guidance on how to better align strategy and culture is needed. This means expanding the puzzle to align business and information cultures, align business and information strategies, and ensuring that there is a good ongoing fit between information cultures and business strategies. It also means that awareness of the information capabilities of an organization needs to be raised along with the different levels and types of information cultures. Relating Information Culture to Information Policies and Management Strategies is a critical scholarly publication that provides a holistic picture of information cultures in order to help business managers understand those cultures and to provide a foundation upon which to ground and grow future information culture research. Highlighting a wide range of topics such as information culture, business strategies, and risk assessment, this book is essential for business managers, organizational executives, information managers, cultural experts, practitioners, academicians, managers, researchers, and students.

Book Description :

Academic libraries have traditionally had two key functions, to support teaching and to support research. In an evolving and competitive university environment, along with the emergence of various technologies and substantial changes in scientific communication, university management has reached a turning point. Academic libraries are facing a paradigm shift in the role they need to play to achieve the research objectives of universities. Research support services in academic libraries have evolved as a response to these changes. They are heterogeneous, adapt to their university culture, adopt different points of view, take different approaches in their organizational structures, and include a diverse catalog of activities. Having an overview of different experiences will allow libraries to adopt best practices, redefine services, and even establish new management and collaboration models. Cases on Research Support Services in Academic Libraries is a critical scholarly resource that uses case studies to systematize the experiences of research support services in academic libraries for the support of higher education faculty. The cases focus on such items as the role of technology and its impact as well as how these services help to improve the excellence of universities. Featuring a wide range of topics such as library services, data management, and open science, this book is ideal for librarians, academicians, professionals, researchers, and students.

Published in partnership with the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association While the library is at the center of many campuses physically, it is often an overlooked and underused resource in improving the learning and success of first-year college students. In this new volume, librarians, classroom faculty, administrators, and higher education researchers come together to explore the potential of the library in shaping the student experience. Chapter authors explore structures and practices for helping students learn to navigate the college library; use the Internet effectively; and find, analyze, and incorporate information into their academic work -- a critical foundation for college success. Thirteen case studies present detailed information on current practice from a variety of campus types.

Book Description :

"This book recognizes that there is no simple way to develop literacy. It begins with the central premise that literacy is not simply a cognitive process; rather, it is a set of social practices that are used in rich sociocultural contexts. Literacy learners come to school with unique social histories that need to be recognized in the programmes devised to facilitate learning. There are many forms of literacy, each with its own specific purposes and contexts in which they are used." "Why is it that school literacy disempowers some, and empowers others? How must schools, teachers and teaching change in order to ensure that literacy can be empowering for all? What types of classroom environments permit children to gain access to the literacy practices which they need to take their place in the world? Addressing these questions provides a refreshingly different look at the many practical classroom strategies and practices necessary to recognize multiple pathways to literacy."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

"Family Literacy Experiences explores the power of the home-school connection. It shows teachers how to make the world outside the classroom an integral part of effective classroom instruction." "In the past, educators have responded to the compelling research that links a strong home literacy environment and student achievement by trying to change what students do at home. This book takes a different approach; it explores innovative ways teachers can incorporate home and out-of-school experiences in reading and writing instruction."--BOOK JACKET.
