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

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

Perpustakaan dan Romantisme Muda-mudi

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.

Who's ready for a thread on #library, #KO, and #LCSH history?

Let's examine a moment in American history where academic libraries were in transition to @librarycongress classification. #critcat #critlib #histlibrary
Though LCC started around 1900, major libraries took time to move over to the "new" system. By 1927 @ALALibrary knew they needed to figure out what was happening, and commissioned Margaret Mann to research and write a book on the use and classification of books in LCC.
@ALALibrary of course, not to be off brand from the 1920's referred to Mann in the patriarchal sense as "Miss Mann", despite, y'know, the fact that she was an associate professor @usmi

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).

1...#QCHistoryEngages On why I chose an MA in Library Science and History - My love of History was not sparked from a single visit to a museum, but rather continuous interactions with educational institutions.
2...My first memory of such a place was a visit to the @FloridaMuseum in Gainesville. The two exhibits I recall from the trip were displays on #bats and #dinosaurs, two things many 8 year olds enjoy. Still have the bat book from the trip.
3...My parents would always encourage visits to the #library as I had an interest for reading from a young age (not sure how they inspired that from the beginning - gladtheydid). This turned into an opportunity for me to discover new topics such as astronomy and other sciences.

Arguments that #libraries are beneficial really don't have anything to do with the #consent argument against #taxation, so they are really quite uninteresting, and not at all even an argumentative response to the good professor. That being said, it's important to understand…
#Libraries are terribly underfunded, when they should be a top priority for civic spending. It is not inconsistent to be pro library funding and con taxation, if you argue for a #noncoercive yet still #compulsory financing source, i.e. Just Rent #LVT. Most libraries cannot…
accept donated books, because they simply cannot afford the staff and infrastructure required to preserve and maintain an ever-growing stock of physical texts. #Libraries must therefore concentrate on what items #librarians deem important or popular in their community. …

The closures that @Rachael_Swindon highlights should also been seen in the context of government policy. She is completely right that this is how the Tories are reducing #socialmobility but it is also how they are reducing access to other vital services for the most vulnerable.
It has long been government policy (in common with other countries) that people should access government services online. Other countries recognise that there is a need to keep other options open to protect the most vulnerable. The UK government took a different approach.
The UK government decided to tell people who had difficulty accessing #digital services that they should go to the #library where staff would help them. They then gave no funding for the training of library staff or for their time or for the equipment needed.
