Today, would like to share the thought process and inspiration behind building the South Gujarat's first #Coworking @ikoverk

Coworking Spaces are Plug and Play offices for #Startups, #Freelances, #Consultants and #SMEs but we wanted to build something more- a Community (1/n)
As you enter, you with find a Large Front desk with volunteers to guide you and onboard you for a 7 Days Free Trial amidst the aroma of Coffee and chirping of fellow coworkers discussing new ideas.

#Connect #Collaborate #Celebrate is the motto.
On the Front desk, you fill an intuitive Map of @ikoverk along with Sign which reads - "Remember, when you enter the door to the Right, you will enter the War Room" because everyone here is a hustler, an innovator and a true warrior.

I was almost #attacked tonight. I was walking w/my friend back to her home tonight. We had encountered a young woman intoxicated &were trying to get her to the YWCA. 3 men ran out and up a small hill around the #library They had masks covering their faces and hoodies over hair
I watched them get closer as my friend stayed with this young intoxicated girl. Every step, they became faster. As they started literally charging across #stafforddrive I turned, faced them and yelled at them to #stop My friend was on the phone w/help & I kept #yelling
They retreated into the bus shelter outside the library. We Beelined to the YWCA
You know why they stopped? I looked one of them right in the eyes and I saw the small amount of skin visible. This man is #Caucasian & I don’t think they were expecting me or my friend to be #white

Why no #library is an island, a thread.

The phrase "local libraries for local people" keeps coming up in my discussions about a better future for public libraries. It describes a dominant contemporary view that the overriding design principle is "meeting local needs". 1/n
2/n In this view, the nature of each individual library as part of a national or even global network, it's connection to the ethos and practice of librarianship, is subordinate to its ability to respond to local needs. This is the ultimate expression of 30 years of fragmentation.
3/n It's also a reasonably logical response to the dominance of a sort of hamstrung localism in our national (English) politics. That there is a policy of local empowerment without adequate resources, which ultimately is a policy of abandonment.

At the Internet Archive, this is how we digitize a book.

We never destroy a book by cutting off its binding.
Instead, we digitize it the hard way--one page at a time.

#digitalbooks
2/ We use the Scribe, a book scanner our engineers invented, along with the software that it runs.

Our scanning centers are located in universities and libraries around the world, from Boston Public Library to the University of Toronto to the Wellcome Library and beyond.
3/ Eliza is one of our fastest and most accurate scanners. Next she will execute quality control checks and fix any errors. Then she ships the book back to our Physical Archive for long-term preservation.

A #copyright #Halloween Story: I was reading about @internetarchive's project to digitize the Marygrove College #Library collection. About halfway through the article I was horrified to see a copyright myth brought back from the dead!🧛On Halloween!🎃libraryjournal.com/?detailStory=i… /1
The myth from the article is that somehow #fairuse can’t “extend to creating and distributing complete copies of a copyrighted work.” From the #SupremeCourt to the #fairuse statute itself, the fair use doctrine does not have a ban on copying or distributing “the whole thing.” /2
This is a myth that I, and my #copyright colleagues around the country, have been trying to “mythbust” for decades! So let's take shake down this #fairuse skeleton like #VanHelsing! /3

I am humbled and privilleged to note that my #Research paper; "Sources of #Unemployment in #Lesotho" is now available and can be accessed via the People's Republic of #China's National #Science and #Technology #Library - #NSTL. I give thanks 😎 Image
So far this year, I have successfully published three #Research articles in #Macroeconomics & #Finance, with another two in press. I am currently hammering away at a handful of working papers which will most certainly find a home in reputable #Journals, come 2021 🙏🏽🙂 Image
Im currently internalising the very insightful reviewer comments on my latest #Research paper titled; "Investigating Determinants of Commercial Bank Spreads in #Lesotho", from the good folks over at the globally reputable #International #Journal of #Finance & #Economics #IJFE 😊 ImageImage

In this week's @BeyondTheBook, @PublishersWkly's top #Copyright reporter @AndrewRichard Albanese in an honest exchange on the publishers lawsuit against the @InternetArchive:

beyondthebookcast.com/internet-archi…

Some key points by Andrew Albanese:
@BeyondTheBook @PublishersWkly @AndrewRichard 2/ @InternetArchive & #libraries...would say they'd pay for the scan but that option isn't available...The only option...for most trade books is a temp expensive ebook license. I actually think that’s a pretty critical Q that could arise in this lawsuit: the library ebook market.
@BeyondTheBook @PublishersWkly @AndrewRichard 3/ @InternetArchive makes what to me is a huge point & is going to be a huge point in the suit. I quote: “The public derives tremendous benefit from the program, while rights holders will gain nothing if the public is deprived of this resource."
...I think it sounds about right.

#ControlledDigitalLending is a method by which #libraries loan books. Publishers are suing to get rid of CDL for good. This is not just an @internetarchive lawsuit, it is an attack on all libraries rights to loan, preserve, & provide access to books. blog.archive.org/2020/07/29/int… /1
Ultimately, this suit about how libraries can continue do what they have always done: lend books. #ControlledDigitalLending is not a brand-new concept. Libraries have loaned books to patrons for centuries. And #libraries DO NOT NEED permission or a license to loan these books /2
Libraries can legally loan books they have purchased or acquired. #Copyright law covers these exact uses. So why are publishers suing over #ControlledDigitalLending? /3

If you want to borrow a book, go to the library. But if you’ve been recently (even digitally), you know libraries are so much more than that.

They're a catch-all public resource, filling gaps in services and serving as a vital community and social infrastructure. 1/ Image
In its history, the library has gone from exclusive to democratic. The first libraries in the U.S. were created so that rich, white, male colonists could exchange books.

Boy, have they changed. 2/

Now, libraries are truly democratic spaces, designed to serve every segment of society in the same physical space. 3/ Image

My tips for conducting a #SystematicReview - a thread.

1. Have a look whether any systematic review or #metaanalysis has been conducted on your topic before. If so, what (gaps) did they uncover? How did they structure their results? How will your review differ?

#phdchat
2. Have a look at the resources available at @PRISMAStatement, including the checklist and flow diagram (prisma-statement.org/PRISMAStatemen…), and use it to guide your processes.
3. Get in touch with the reference #librarian at your institution, or check out the resources available through any #HigherEducation #library website. They'll have valuable insight into search string development and database best practice.

Windows dan LIS.
Sebuah utas.
#library #windows #soft #semiotics
Saya baru sadar, karena lebih sering memakai daripada memperhatikan. Windows menggunakan istilah 'libraries' untuk ruang penyimpanan personal pengguna sistem operasinya.
Saya tidak tahu apakah bahasa ini memang dibuat orang LIS atau ada kontribusi-konsultasi dengan orang LIS. Tapi keliatan banget si LISnya

Sebuah Utas
Utas kali ini akan menyinggung mengenai representasi perpustakaan di dalam Korean Drama, lagi. Haha. Sesuai judul, setidaknya utas ini akan dibagi pada dua bagian.
Perpustakaan yang diulas kali ini ada pada web series A-TEEN Season 1 (2018). Perpustakaan ini pertama ditunjukkan pada episode 4 saat Doha berencana belajar bersama dengan Hamin, yang ternyata juga bersama Kim-Ha.

“I thought that like everything else for women in our society, even books were out of reach,”says Shafiya Shaikh about the Rehnuma library in Mumbra. Its patrons,mainly Muslim women from migrant families, cherish the #library for giving them a space to chat, read, learn & dream. ImageImageImage
Apart from its enviable collection of books ranging from the novels of Umera Ahmad to Harry Potter,& its spirited #bookclub, the #library's charm also lies in how it gives women access to public spaces & brings them together to enjoy each other's company. bit.ly/2W13Rj7 ImageImageImage
.@RanaAyyub Thought you'd like to know that your book is discussed by the Rehnuma library's scintillating book club.

Thread: Another overview amazing #Muslim *female* achievement.

Did you know the first university in the world was built by a Muslim woman approx 1200 years ago?

This is the story of Fatima Al-Fihiri (800–880 CE). #BadassWoman #twitterstorians

1/15
2. Daughter of a wealthy businessman, the family moved from Tunisia to Fez, Morocco during the rule of King Idriss II. When both her husband and father died, Fatima and her sister inherited a fortune.

They chose to spend their inheritance on building educational institutions.
3. In 859, Fatima built the Al-Qayrawan #Mosque, decorated in the Andalusian style with Kufic calligraphy (early style) engraved throughout. At 3,000 sq ft, it can fit 22,000 people.

She stacked it with Islamic works (Qur’ans, #Hadith collections, etc).
