An anthology of library humor by the director of the mythical Molesworth Institute, Norman Stevens, this book is sure to provide librarians with many hours of amusement. This collection is full of Stevens’most memorable papers describing the odd kinds of research conducted by the Institute, such as a sophisticated study of the disappearance of umbrellas in libraries, a computer analysis of library postcards, and a “precostretrieval” scheme to accelerate the disintegration of book pages while saving the letters in them. Archives of Library Research from the Molesworth Institute is also well-stocked with unforgettable one-liners, such as the author's “plan to solve a major space problem for libraries by microfilming all Braille books.” The imaginary Molesworth Institute has taken on a life of its own since its story first appeared in the ALA Bulletin in 1963. Stevens writes mostly for fun and entertainment, but also to stress the point that librarians should take a less serious view of their work. After all, as Stevens points out in this anthology, “The library world, like the real world, [is] impossible to understand on a rational basis.” Now librarians can enjoy the convenience of having Stevens’most treasured papers--spanning over two decades--all in one very funny book.

Computers increasingly collect, manage, and analyze data for scholarly research. Linked data gives libraries the ability to support this e-research, making it a powerful tool. Libraries are at a tipping point in adoption of linked data, and this issue of Library Technology Reports explores current research in linked open data, explaining concepts and pioneering services, such as Five building blocks of metadata—data model, content rules, metadata schema, data serialization, and data exchange Three case studies—Europeana, Digital Public Library of America, and BIBFRAME How libraries, archives and museums are currently addressing such issues as metadata quality, open data and business models, cross community engagement, and implementation

What is research data for music researchers and performers? How can music librarians develop their knowledge and skills to better meet the research data needs of their constituents, and contribute to the data-intensive turn in academia? Music Research Data Management: A Guide for Librarians explores these questions, provides readers with a background in research data management as it applies to specific music disciplines, and presents examples of the data used within several of the major music and music-related disciplines. Many academic libraries offer extensive research data management services, which may include support for data management planning, data description and access, preservation, and the promotion of open data initiatives. Because of a lack of shared vocabulary, music researchers may not realize that they work with “data” and are eligible for these services. Music researchers and performers work with items such as texts, datasets, and recordings, and create new items for the library to curate and preserve. By drawing upon research data management principles, music librarians can define music research data and articulate its importance. Music Research Data situates research data management within the music disciplines and examines how music librarians can become leaders in the evolving turn towards data-focused research and scholarship, including ways in which our libraries can better support and curate these data. Useful to music librarians with varying levels of experience and development in research data management services at their libraries, this book offers a solid foundation for building these services.

What Ails Library Websites of Research and Technical Institutions of India

The book is focused on understanding the currently functional status of library websites of Research and Technical Institutions of India. Webometric tools and techniques were deployed during the course of the investigation. These included Web Indicators, Sitebeam Web Analyzer Test Scores and Web Impact Factors. The list of 105 Library Web Indicators has been divided into 5 different blocks. These five blocks are Resource, Service, Links, Information and Design as well as Graphics. Web Analyzers are another source used for evaluating the websites. They evaluate indicators that cannot be evaluated by human eyes. They also investigate back links, broken links, external and internal links, page speed, load time, mobile compatibility, domain age, keyword consistency, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) tools, hit counts, etc. A maximum of 100 web pages of a library website were tested by Sitebeam Web Analyzer. Each library website was tested on 26 individual test scores ranging from 0 to 10. Web Impact Factors also provided detailed insights into the content, structure and design of the library websites. The feasibility and reliability of calculating the impact factors for the website are called Web Impact Factor (WIF). It contains quantitative indicators developed by Ingwersen (1998). According to him, WIF is calculable and reliable if processed by means of a series of inverted but identical Boolean Operations with caution in order to isolate and estimate the number of web pages pointing to the pages at a given site. The book is a milestone in this field giving explicit directions for standardization of institutional library websites and bringing them upto international levels of function and operation.

This 254 page report presents data from a survey of the cataloging practices of approximately 80 North American academic libraries. In more than 630 tables of data and related commentary from participating librarians and our analysts, the report gives a broad overview of academic library cataloging practices related to outsourcing, selection and deployment of personnel, salaries, the state of continuing education in cataloging, and much more. Survey participants also discuss how they define the catalogers¿ range of responsibilities, how they train their catalogers, how they assess cataloging quality, whether they use cataloging quotas or other measures to spur productivity, what software and other cataloging technology they use and why, and how they make outsourcing decisions and more. Data is broken out by size and type of college and for public and private colleges.Just a few of the reports many findings are presented below:¿More than 70% of the libraries in the sample say that their catalogers have salary levels that are comparable to those of public service librarians at their institutions.¿About 27.3% of the survey participants routinely use paraprofessional staff for original cataloging. Public colleges were more than three times more likely than private colleges to use paraprofessionals for original cataloging, and larger colleges were more than twice as likely as smaller ones to do so.¿41.56% of the libraries in the sample outsource authority control, obtaining new and updated authority records.¿About 15.6% of the libraries in the sample outsource the cataloging of e-journals; close to 28% of research universities do so.¿20.78% of libraries in the sample use MarcEdit or other MARC editor to preview records and globally edit to local standards prior to loading. ¿29.7% of the libraries in the sample have technical services areas that track turnaround time from Acquisitions receipt to Cataloging to shelf-ready distribution.¿About 24.7% of the libraries in the sample use paraprofessional support staff for master bibliographic record enrichment in OCLC. Most of those doing so were public colleges and offered beyond the B.A. degree.¿Authority control experience was considered a very important criterion for hiring by only 8.11% of survey participants, while a bit more than 35% considered it important. 21.62% considered authority control experience not so important as a hiring criterion.
