Date: 2013
Creator: Kim, Jeonghyun; Warga, Edward & Moen, William E.
Description: Article discussing competencies required for digital curation. Abstract: With digital curation's increasingly important role in the fast-paced and data-intensive information environment, there is a need to identify a set of competencies for professionals in this growing field. As part of a curriculum development project funded by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, a total of 173 job advertisements posted between October 2011 and April 2012 were collected from various sources to take into account varying types of professionals in the field of digital curation across North America. Position title, institution types and location, educational background, experience, knowledge and skills, and duties were examined and analyzed. The results of the analysis show that digital curation jobs are characterized by a complex interplay of various skills and knowledge. The findings of this study present emerging requirements for a qualified workforce in the field of digital curation.

Cross-Cultural Training and Success Versus Failure of Expatriates

Date: 2012
Creator: Joshua-Gojer, Ashwini Esther
Description: This article discusses cross-cultural training (CCT) and success versus failure of expatriates. Abstract: The past few decades has seen an explosion in research on expatriates and CCT. There has been controversy and an unending debate on the goals, effectiveness, implementation, and processes of CCT. There are very few reviews that have condensed literature detailing the best practices of CCT. This review also details the success and failure of expatriates. The antecedents or moderators that play a role in the evaluation of success and failure have been outlined in this literature review. It also brings to light certain solutions that will make CCT more effective and provides directions for future research.

Date: 2012
Creator: Chermack, Thomas J.; Song, Ji Hoon; Nimon, Kim F.; Choi, Myungweon & Korte, Russel F.
Description: This article discusses a research study on the development and assessment of an instrument for measuring mental model styles in Korea. Abstract: This research study documents the development and validation of a new instrument for measuring individual mental model styles. In particular, the instrument is developed for use in organizational performance and change settings. Existing approaches to accessing and assessing mental models are reviewed, and the conclusion is drawn that none are survey-based, quantitative measures useful in organizational settings. Instrument development procedures with an expert panel are described, as well as data collection and analysis. The resulting instrument is provided along with exploratory factor analysis, and confirmatory factor analysis results. Recommendations for further research and establishing continued validity are provided.

Exploring Learner to Content Interaction as a Success Factor in Online Courses

Exploring Learner to Content Interaction as a Success Factor in Online Courses

Date: October 2012
Creator: Zimmerman, Tekeisha Denise
Description: This article discusses exploring learner to content interaction as a success factor in online courses. Abstract: Interaction plays a critical role in the learning process. For online course participants, interaction with the course content (learner-content interaction) is especially important because it can contribute to successful learning outcomes and course completion. This study aims to examine the relationship between learner-content interaction and course grade to determine if this interaction type is a contributing success factor. Data related to student interaction with course content, including time spent reviewing online course materials, such as module PowerPoint presentations and course videos and time spent completing weekly quizzes, were collected for students in three sections of an online course (N = 139). The data were then correlated against grades achieved in the course to determine if there was any relationship. Findings indicate statistically significant relationships between the amount of time the learner spent with the content and weekly quiz grades (r = .-72). The study concludes that learners who spent more time interacting with course content achieve higher grades than those who spent less time with the content.

Metadata Records Translation: The Case of The Portal to Texas History

Date: 2011
Creator: Chen, Jiangping; Ding, Ren & Jiang, Shan
Description: Article discussing metadata records and translation. Abstract: In this paper, performance of online translation systems including Google, Systran and Bing on translating metadata records derived from the digital library- Portal to Texas History- is manually evaluated using four measures: Fluency, Adequacy, Incorrect Translation, and Missing Translation. The authors propose exploring multi-engine machine translation for improving the quality of translation and point out three possible strategies of implementing multilingual information access in digital libraries applying machine translation of metadata records.

Miles to go before we sleep: education, technology, and the changing paradigms in health information

Date: January 2011
Creator: Cleveland, Ana D.
Description: This article discusses education, technology, and the changing paradigms in health information. Abstract: Purpose: This lecture discusses a philosophy of educating health information professionals in a rapidly changing health care and information environment. Discussion: Education for health information professionals must be based upon a solid foundation of the changing paradigms and trends in health care and health information, as well as technological advances, to produce a well-prepared information workforce to meet the demands of health-related environments. Educational programs should begin with the core principles of library and information sciences and expand in interdisciplinary collaborations. A model of the health care environment is presented to serve as a framework for developing educational programs for health information professionals. Conclusion: Interdisciplinary and collaborative relationships-which merge health care, library and information sciences, and other information-related disciplines-should form the basis of education for health information professionals.
