Resource and Resource Sharing in Intelligent Information Access

Resource and Resource Sharing in Intelligent Information Access

Date: October 23, 2008
Creator: Chen, Jiangping
Description: This presentation discusses an exploratory study on resources and resource sharing among researchers in Intelligent Information Access (IIA). The investigation consists of two stages. In Stage One, the authors conducted a content analysis to identify resources used in 145 research papers and reports in two subfields of IIA; and in Stage Two, the authors carried out an online survey of IIA researchers to understand resource-sharing channels and the researchers' perspectives on resource sharing. The results demonstrate that IIA researchers make use of various types of resources developed by others. Most of these resources are knowledgeable sources or software systems that are freely available online. However, IIA researchers encounter various difficulties during the course of resource acquisition and use. The study suggests that a resource management system built on a well-established knowledge-management model could greatly facilitate the creation, sharing, and use of resources in the IIA community.

Resource Discovery Using Z39.50: Promise and Reality

Resource Discovery Using Z39.50: Promise and Reality

Date: November 2000
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This paper discusses the Z39.50 protocol. The ANSI/NISO Z39.50 protocol for information retrieval addresses the complex challenges of intersystem communication. Original uses envisioned for the protocol look very little like current implementations and uses. In the 1980s, users on one library catalog system would search and retrieve bibliographic records on a remote system. By the late 1990s, there was a need for discovering networked resources and integrating access to them. Yet, the Z39.50 protocol has addressed both these scenarios. This paper provides a portrayal of Z39.50 that explains its flexibility in response to a variety of information retrieval requirements in the networked environment.

Retrospective Pretest: A Practical Technique for Professional Development Evaluation

Retrospective Pretest: A Practical Technique for Professional Development Evaluation

Date: 2007
Creator: Allen, Jeff M. & Nimon, Kim F.
Description: The purpose of this study was to field test an instrument incorporating a retrospective pretest to determine whether it could reliably be used as an evaluation tool for a professional development conference. Based on a prominent evaluation taxonomy, the instrument provides a practical, low-cost approach to evaluating the quality of professional development interventions across a wide variety of disciplines. The instrument includes not only the questions typically associated with measuring participants' reactions but also includes a set of questions to gauge whether and how much learning occurred. Results indicate that the data produced from the instrument were reliable.

[Review] Collaborate: The Art of We

[Review] Collaborate: The Art of We

Date: 2012
Creator: Joshua-Gojer, Ashwini Esther
Description: This book review discusses 'Collaborate: The Art of We' by Dan Sanker. The phenomenon of collaboration is getting popular in organizations; however while it is not a new buzzword, it is gaining more mileage because of the changes we see around us. In his book 'Collaborate: The Art of We' (2012), author Dan Sanker makes the case for social Darwinism - the constant battle for survival - by stating that in the coming decades, the fittest will be the ones who know how to collaborate. In today's global economy, time is of essence, as is quality. The book is timely because in the light of the present economy, collaboration is not just a best practice, but an essential practice for performance.
