Annual Meeting - "Treat users well. Treat them as if they are human. Perhaps they are."

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Brenda Dervin

Program: "Treat users well. Treat them as if they are human. Perhaps they are." Dr. Dervin's "Sense-Making" methodology and approach have been widely applied within libraries, information systems and numerous other fields. An active researcher, teacher, editor and reviewer, Dr. Dervin is one of the most highly cited scholars in the fields of communication and library/information science. She currently serves on six editorial boards and has served as principal investigator for grant and contract projects for institutions including the National Cancer Institute, Ameritech, the US Office of Education, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. We look forward to her commentary on recent developments in Sense-Making methodology, how it influences the world outside of library science, and her perspective on the development of "Second Life" and other aspects of Web 2.0. More information about Dr. Dervin's work can be found at: Sense-Making Methodology web site http://communication.sbs.ohio-state.edu/sense-making/ Sense-Making the Information Confluence Project web site http://imlsproject.comm.ohio-state.edu/

"Web 2.0: Exploring Libraries -- and our Information Users"

Keynote Speaker: Brian C. Gray

Program: The information world is becoming more user-driven and "social" in scope. As information professionals, we must understand this new wave of Internet customization and collaboration. Our users are developing new expectations in information delivery and interaction, but are we meeting or exceeding their needs? Some libraries and information providers are exploring and utilizing the same principles and technologies that have driven the Web 2.0 movement. Libraries are using tools such as blogs, RSS feeds, wikis, social communities, podcasts and various "mash-ups", to give library users increased ownership in their library experiences. At the same time, users are creating tools to supplement and/or replace their library interactions. Even if your library is not leading the technology wave - are you at least recognizing how the new web developments have changed the user's experience?

Presenter: Brian C. Gray, MLIS, is the Engineering, Mathematics, and Statistics Librarian at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He teaches a workshop at Case on using RSS feeds and is helping to implement instant messaging as a reference tool. Starting in the spring of 2007, he is teaching a new workshop, "Using Web 2.0 Principles to Become Librarian 2.0" for the Kent State University School of Library & Information Science. He is current web coordinator for the Library Administration and Management Association of ALA, has designed serveral blogs, and maintains a personal blog on engineering resources (http://blog.case.edu/bcg8/), a personal blog on web 2.0 in libraries (http://briangray.alablog.org/) and co-authors several other blogs. We look forward to seeing you on April 19th!

This program will further define and illustrate the use of digital storytelling in the

    The Ohio Memory Project staff has been working with more than 250 libraries, museums, archives, and historical societies across the state to create a virtual collection of primary source materials. Acting as a single point of access to historical documents and artifacts from a variety of institutions, the resulting website highlights connections between collections, providing more comprehensive coverage of the state's history than any single institution could.

    The presentation will include a history of the project, highlight some material and cover various project elements including selection criteria, metadata, controlled vocabularies, and usability testing.

    Functions of Metadata Schemas and Content Markup Languages
    for Knowledge Representation in Digital Collections

    Metadata schemas for resource description such as Dublin Core and LOM (Learning Object Metadata) and domain specific markup languages such as MatML (Materials Property Data Markup Language) or CML (Chemical Markup Language) have evolved dramatically during the last five years. Much of this development, however, has been a parallel evolution. There often has been no clear indication of how resource level metadata can be integrated most effectively with domain-specific content markup or with structural markup describing the internal architecture of resources. This presentation will review available metadata standards and markup language standards, analyze the functions of each mechanism in dealing with different digital collection: data, text-based information, non-text-based and non-document-like resources.

    Assistant Professor Kent State University School of Library & Information Science/Columbus Campus

    will present on:

    The Structure of Medical Informatics

    What is "Medical Informatics"? Is it more than simply "The use of computers in medicine?" What areas of research, practice, and education does Medical Informatics touch, and which touch it? Who needs to know more about Medical Informatics, and why? Ted Morris discusses these and other aspects of Medical Informatics, drawing largely on research conducted for his defended dissertation, The Structure within Medical Informatics: A Classification Code/Indexing Co-occurrence Analysis.

    PERSPECTIVES ON THE DIGITAL INFORMATION ENVIRONMENT:  A CASE FOR COLLABORATIVE AND INSTITUTIONAL MODELS 
    Presented by Wendy Lougee
    Assistant Director for Digital Library Initiatives 
    University of Michigan Library

    The changing landscapes of higher education, scholarly communication, and technology have provided a catalyst for rethinking existing structures for information delivery and access within the academy. Wendy Lougee will discuss perspectives on the digital information environment.  The University of Michigan's Digital Library Program is offered as a case study to highlight the organizational and technological dimensions of developing digital collections and services.  Collaboration--with the technology and research sectors--is offered as an imperative in building local and national infrastructure for digital library resources. 

    Begun in 1993, Michigan's Digital Library Program is jointly sponsored by the University Library, the newly chartered School of Information, and the Information Technology Division and brings together the complementary expertise of librarians, researchers, and technologists to develop digital content and the access environment. Through a project-based strategy, the campus information infrastructure is being developed and attention directed toward attendant issues of economic models for information delivery, access policies, and intellectual property management. 

    Wendy Lougee currently serves as Assistant Director for Digital Library Initiatives at the University of Michigan Library.  In this capacity, she oversees a campus-wide collaborative Digital Library Program focused on achieving a comprehensive, coherent networked information environment for the University.  Previously, she directed the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library at Michigan, Michigan's central humanities and social science research library.  Her professional and research interests have been in the arena of scholarly communication, collection management models, and digital library development. 

    Ms. Lougee holds a BA from Lawrence University, an MS (Library Science) from the University of Wisconsin, and an MA (Psychology) from the University of Minnesota. 

    The OCLC Office of Research graciously invited CO-ASIS members to attend this OCLC Distinguished Seminar and sponsored our attendance.

    THE LATE GREAT INTERNET
    Featuring  Debora Shaw
    President-Elect, Association for Information Science 
    Associate Dean,  School of Library and Information Science, Indiana University 
    Dinner Program 

    It is easy to be overwhelmed by statistics on the growth of the Internet and commercialization of cyberspace; graphs of exponential growth confirm our impressions of living in a revolutionary age. Recently, however, contrarian opinions have emerged, notably the Nielsen/Commercenet study claiming Internet use is considerably less than 'net proponents suggest. 

    Is the 'net overrated? Is it being swamped by the web crawlers designed to make searching better? Is it really an Edsel running on New Coke? And what are the implications and unintended consequences for information professionals?  Come hear Debora ("Ralf") Shaw, the incoming President of the Association for Information Science, address these and other ponderables of the information age.
