O objetivo da pesquisa é avaliar a contribuição das ferramentas de redes sociais da Web na melhoria da comunicação e da qualidade dos serviços e produtos das bibliotecas universitárias. A pesquisa é de caráter exploratório com abordagem quantitativa e qualitativa, por meio da aplicação de questionário às bibliotecas da UNESP, UNICAMP e USP e de entrevista a uma amostra de bibliotecas dessas instituições. Os resultados revelam que as bibliotecas estão, ainda, em um estágio de experimentação com relação à utilização das redes sociais. Verifica-se que as ferramentas possibilitam novas formas de comunicação e de divulgação de informações, serviços e produtos para as bibliotecas, bem como de capacitação para seus usuários, o que resulta em inovações e agrega valor aos processos já existentes. Ao mesmo tempo, entende-se que as redes sociais não se caracterizam apenas como espaços de comunicação e divulgação, mas também de participação, colaboração e interação algo ainda, pouco explorado pelas bibliotecas consultadas. Apesar disso, acredita-se que as redes sociais podem contribuir na melhoria da comunicação e da qualidade dos serviços e produtos bibliotecários.; The objective of this research is to evaluate the contribution of social networking sites of the Web in improving communication and the quality of services and products offered in academic libraries. This is an exploratory research with quantitative and qualitative approaches. We have submitted questionnaires to the libraries of UNESP (São Paulo State University)...

This article has three main objectives: i) to describe the use patterns of electronic and traditional resources in Portuguese academic libraries; ii) to estimate the value of the Portuguese electronic scientific information consortium b-on by using two alternative valuation methodologies; iii) to relate the use patterns with the valuation of b-on. We estimate the value of the Portuguese electronic scientific information consortium b-on by using two alternative evaluation methodologies: a) the value of the time saved by using this electronic resource; and b) the contingent valuation method to estimate how much the user is willing to pay for the service. Our results show wide differences in use patterns, with professors, researchers and PhD students having a more intense use of digital library services than undergraduate and masters students. Moreover, the benefit-cost ratios computed using the two valuation techniques indicate that the value of the electronic scientific information consortium b-on is well above its costs. Finally, the study shows that the valuation of b-on is higher for the user groups with higher percentage use of digital services.

In the last 10 years there have been big changes in the Portuguese academic libraries services as in other academic libraries over the world. These changes include the adoption of automatic catalogues and the electronic access to bibliographic data bases and scientific journals in full text. Nowadays physical and digital sources are together. Professors, students and researchers are able to access simultaneous to a great amount of quality information pay and open access. The Portuguese Government has been investing to improve the access to the production of knowledge so as to develop the country. It is important to know the return on the investments in university libraries. The purpose of this paper is to identify the impact of the electronic sources in the Portuguese academic libraries. This paper describes an ongoing project to assess: The use of electronic scientific information and the correlation to the scientific production of the Portuguese academic community according to standard performance measures indicators and bibliometrics data. The economic value of these library services. In order to estimate in monetary terms the value of these services for end-users we use the contingent valuation method (CVM). This study reports the results of a qualitative e-survey of academic community.

The aim of the research undertaken was to get to know the degree of implementation of discovery tools in university libraries in the Iberian Peninsula. It also allowed an initial evaluation of the facilities offered by the tools implemented. With regard to the presence of discovery tools we find a different situation in the two countries, with a higher degree of implementation in Spain. As for the behaviour of the discovery layers, the eight tools evaluated performed appropriately. Discovery tools represent a considerable advance. The combining of the library’s catalogue and indexes to articles with other sources of information in a single unified interface is an unquestionable improvement. However, catalogues and databases still fulfil some purposes better than discovery tools. Libraries need to consider their clients when putting up on their websites the various tools for gaining access to contents.

Academic libraries are still working based on the traditional documentation techniques of cataloguing and indexing. The research about subject access in OPACs has demonstrated that inadequate indexing policies have negative influence on the way users search the catalogs: subject indexing and retrieval have a direct correspondence. Searching by subject in bibliographic catalogs must be, as much as possible, a successful experience for the users, and consistent subject indexes contribute to a more efficient information retrieval. The main objective of this research was to evidence the existing difficulties in subject indexing with alphabetic languages, once the normative instruments and tools supporting the process are diffuse and hard to use for many professionals. So, firstly we wanted to know if the indexing practice in the Portuguese polytechnic libraries was according to adequate standards; secondly, we verified the quality (through a sample analysis) of subject headings in the bibliographic catalogs of five libraries, enabling to evidence existing weaknesses. These two observations have demonstrated that inadequate indexing procedures (first) conduct to inconsistent subject indexes (second). Trying to ease up that complex task for professionals with more difficulties...

Poster; Contextualized by individual experience (Dewey, 1938), the aim of this article is to describe the transformational ambition of university library actions concerning students (Allan, 2010). To do so, an in-depth reflection on the concept of educational experience is conducted using narrative research (Clandinin & Connelly, 2000). University space, subjective experience and sociality in university libraries create a conceptual framework using different kinds of texts and analyses. The aim is to show how information literacy can be used to contribute to the academic development of university students, highlighting the theoretical understandings proposed by Bruce (1997; 2003; 2004). Information skills, considered transversal, contribute decisively to what is expected of the individual after graduation, putting them to use in a labor context, also in transformation (Weaver, 2008). In this sense we can expect librarians’ collaboration, training students in the information literacy context, using “real life” situations concerning the need for information, to enable in-depth learning. Learning takes place in a university campus, within which academic libraries are part of a possible response to the challenges posed by teachers and counselors. The challenged students seek solutions through multiple means available...

Over the past decade, information literacy has been a challenge for academic libraries in Portugal. Lately, academic library professionals all over the country have been providing a consistent foundation for both teaching sessions and guidance for students. In this article a systematic literature review is used, in an attempt “to identify, appraise and synthesize all the empirical evidence that meets pre-specified eligibility criteria to answer a given research question” [1].The aim is therefore to carry out a review that seeks to systematize the state of knowledge about information literacy instruction, trying to answer the research question: how is literacy instruction conducted and provided in Portugal? The objective was to achieve an overview of the practices of information literacy instructional training in a south European country. The overall contribution to the field of IL is mainly a focus on the state of the art of information literacy instruction in Portugal.

The purpose of this paper is to identify and analyse the dimensions of academic library customer complaints. It contributes to a better understanding of customer complaints within the context of a particular service, namely, academic libraries. The methodology was based on a case study with 30 narratives gathered from library customers and staff. Negative critical incidents were grouped and classified to support the conceptual framework used in this paper. Results identified 16 dissatisfied service encounters related to the following three dimensions of librarian service: open space, open place and open state. The vast majority of incidents identified involved the library experienced as an open state and open space. Owing to the exploratory nature of the study and the scope and size of the study sample, the results outlined are tentative and further research should be undertaken to test them in the context of other academic libraries.

Since the mid-1990s, there has been an explosion of books, journal and magazine articles, workshops and conference presentations about the multigenerational workplace. Writers such as David Foot (Boom, Bust and Echo), Ron Zemke et al. (Generations at Work), and others have delved into the challenges of bringing together individuals from different generations with very different values and ways of looking at their work. Typically, it is suggested that there is an inevitable clash between the generations, particularly between baby boomers and next generation, that needs to be managed by employers. Academic libraries throughout North America have multiple generations of librarians in their employ. For example, a major survey of libraries across Canada in 2005 showed that in academic libraries, librarian complements were divided approximately 25-25-50, with 25% being “Recent Professional Librarian Entrants” (defined as librarians with less than 6 years of professional experience), 25% being “Mid-Career Librarians” (6 – 15 years of professional experience) and 50% “Senior” Librarians (more than 15 years’ experience). (From The Future of Human Resources in Canadian Libraries. http://www.ls.ualberta.ca/8rs/8RsFutureofHRLibraries.pdf.) It is reasonable to assume that the same challenges and opportunities exist in a multigenerational work environment in academic libraries just as in any other. At the same time...

Providing public access to libraries is a public service, but is it a right? This paper explores participation in depository programs, public university status, and public funding as possible bases for this right. It examines relevant cases and finds that courts respect the right of academic libraries to determine their own policies.

Im Rahmen der politischen Diskussionen um eine Modernisierung der Staatsverwaltung wird neben dem Abbau von Bürokratie der Einführung von outputorientierten Steuerungsmodellen eine entscheidende Bedeutung beigemessen. Auch Hochschulen und deren wissenschaftliche Bibliotheken sollen stärker als bislang ausweisen, inwiefern sie ihrem öffentlichen Leistungsauftrag genügend entsprechen. Ein Steuerungsinstrument dieser Leistungsmessung ist der „Bibliotheksindex“ für wissenschaftliche Bibliotheken, kurz BIX-WB genannt. In der vorliegenden Arbeit wird zunächst das Phänomen der Leistungsmessung an wissenschaftlichen Bibliotheken mittels Indikatoren und das Benchmarking als Grundlage des BIX-Projekts beleuchtet. Hiernach werden Organisation, Funktion und Methodik des BIX-WB ausführlich dargestellt und abschließend kritisch gewürdigt.; In the context of political discussions on modernising public administration, great importance is ascribed to the implementation of output-based controlling instruments. Thus in Germany, universities and their academic libraries are supposed to show in a more detailled way than before how they meet their public task. A controlling instrument of this performance measurement is the the project “Bibliotheksindex” for German academic libraries (BIX-WB). The paper deals with the phanomenon of performance measurement at academic libraries using performance indicators and with benchmarking as the basis of the BIX-project. Thereafter organisation...

El objetivo de este artículo es comparar las ventajas y problemas de la adquisición de libros electrónicos identificados en la literatura de investigación a los experimentados por dos bibliotecas universitarias suecas. Como método de trabajo se utilizó una revisión de la literatura para identificar los principales problemas relacionados con la adquisición de los libros electrónicos en las bibliotecas universitarias. Los datos para la comparación se recogieron a través de estudios de caso en dos universidades suecas. Se utilizaron y analizaron documentos, entrevistas y experiencias personales en la recolección de datos. Entre los resultados destaca que los principales impulsores de la adquisición de libros electrónicos de las bibliotecas universitarias suecas son las necesidades percibidas en los usuarios. Los libros electrónicos son considerados como potencialmente útiles para resolver algunos de los problemas de servicio de la biblioteca. Un considerable número de desafíos y problemas identificados en los estudios de casos coinciden con los que se derivan de la revisión de la literatura. Los problemas de la adquisición de libros electrónicos en las bibliotecas universitarias parecen ser comunes entre los países occidentales económicamente fuertes. Los bibliotecarios universitarios ven ciertas ventajas en los libros electrónicos para sus usuarios y las bibliotecas. Los editores y bibliotecarios académicos esperan que los libros electrónicos no pierdan las ventajas que ofrecen los libros impresos. Los editores limitan el uso de los libros electrónicos para asegurarse los ingresos como en el caso de la venta de copias individuales impresas. Los bibliotecarios tratan de recuperar el mismo nivel de control sobre las colecciones de libros electrónicos del que disponían en los materiales impresos.; Abstract: Our aim is to compare the advantages and problems of e-book acquisition identified in research literature to those experienced by two Swedish university libraries.

This paper explores how internationalization is understood and experienced in German academic libraries. Its main purpose is to move the discussion of internationalization in academic libraries beyond the boundaries of English-speaking North America by investigating a European perspective. Its secondary purpose is to investigate the role of English in German academic libraries. An online survey and a series of in-person interviews conducted in Germany in April 2015 provided the data for this study. What emerged are a series of stated differences and similarities between North America and Germany informed by the two overarching themes of implicit internationalization and plurilingualism, the ability to switch from one language to another as required.

The main goal of this research is to analyze the web structure and performance of units and services belonging to U.S. academic libraries in order to check their suitability for webometric studies. Our objectives include studying their possible correlation with economic data and assessing their use for complementary evaluation purposes. We conducted a survey of library homepages, institutional repositories, digital collections, and online catalogs (a total of 374 URLs) belonging to the 100 U.S. universities with the highest total expenditures in academic libraries according to data provided by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Several data points were taken and analyzed, including web variables (page count, external links, and visits) and economic variables (total expenditures, expenditures on printed and electronic books, and physical visits). The results indicate that the variety of URL syntaxes is wide, diverse and complex, which produces a misrepresentation of academic library web resources and reduces the accuracy of web analysis. On the other hand, institutional and web data indicators are not highly correlated. Better results are obtained by correlating total library expenditures with URL mentions measured by Google (r= 0.546) and visits measured by Compete (r= 0.573)...

Based on the 2014 OLA Super Conference session “Mentorship in Academic Libraries: A Universe of Possibilities,” this article explores the benefits of informal mentorship in its various forms and how librarians are embracing a new way of thinking about mentorship both individually and organizationally. The lived experiences of two professional academic librarians are shared as they argue that informal mentorship offers the opportunity to co-create a meaningful mentorship experience by recognizing the importance of the mentee’s voice. This paper will discuss the value of informal mentorship and how, when certain elements are present within it, this model can allow us to reimagine mentorship in academic libraries. Concepts such as “accidental” mentorship, “purposeful” mentorship, mentorship “network,” and “peer” mentorship are discussed.
