1. Dauda, Joshua. Establishing a library portal for integrated e-resources at Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Yola, Adamawa State, Nigeria .

Degree: 2018, University of the Western Cape

The study examined the availability of e-resources in the Ibrahim Babangida Library at Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Yola (MAUTECH) focusing to integrate e-resources in a dedicated portal for easy access. The study was motivated by the Nigerian vision 20:2020 and the trend in 21st century academic libraries to offer electronic resources and services to meet users? demands and use of technology. Mixed methods were sequential, concurrent, conversion and integrated approaches used. A descriptive case study approach was employed. The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and Diffusion of Innovation (DoI) theories framed the study. Based on these, a conceptual framework was constructed. To achieve triangulation, questionnaires, interviews and scanning of library portals were used to gather both quantitative and qualitative data. Academics, students, academic librarians, and information and communication technology experts acted as participants. Findings reflected low use of the Ibrahim Babangida Library, dissatisfaction with the quality and quantity of the library collection, insufficient and unreliable Internet access on campus, limited information literacy education, familiarity and utilization of e-resources due to flexibility and easy access to academic information, need for digitisation of library resources and the need for a dedicated library portal. The study recommends, amongst others, information literacy education for students and academics, subscription to full-text databases, provision of sufficient and free Internet access, e-resource and e-services policies, and establishing a consortium with other Nigerian academic libraries. The outcome of the study was a designed, established and functioning library portal based on the input of all the stakeholders of the MAUTECH community. Advisors/Committee Members: King, Lizette (advisor).

2. Sesagiri Raamkumar, Aravind. A task-based scientific paper recommender system for literature review and manuscript preparation .

Degree: 2018, Nanyang Technological University

In the domain of scholarly communication lifecycle, recommender systems have been built to provide research papers for researchers’ explicit and implicit information needs. Previous studies (Jardine, 2014; Mcnee, 2006) have employed an algorithmic approach of providing solutions to researcher’s tasks. The characteristics of the tasks, their inter-relationships and intra-relationships with algorithms have been largely ignored since the focus has mainly been to propose different recommendation techniques on top of a variety of algorithms. Driven by these research gaps, the overarching goal of this research is to build an assistive system for helping researchers in finding papers for key Literature Review (LR) and Manuscript Preparatory (MP) tasks. To achieve this goal, two research objectives are proposed. The first objective is to identify an appropriate method to map the identified LR and MP tasks to relevant algorithms. The deliverable for this objective is a prototype assistive system that provides recommendations for three tasks. The second research objective is to evaluate whether the performance of the proposed recommendation techniques and the overall system are at the expected level. To address the research objectives, the research is divided into two interrelated studies. In Study I, a university-wide survey was conducted on the topic of Inadequate and Omitted Citations in manuscripts (IOC). The 207 survey respondents were classified into manuscript reviewer and author groups. Survey results indicated that manuscript authors frequently miss citing seminal and topically-similar papers in journal manuscripts. The lack of experience in a specific research area was perceived as a major reason for IOC, followed by lack of overall research experience and the scenario of working in interdisciplinary research projects. Authors frequently needed external assistance in finding interdisciplinary and topically-similar papers for LR. Based on the findings, two LR search tasks of building reading list and finding topically similar papers were shortlisted. A third task meant to help researchers in identifying unique and important papers from their final reading list was selected, thereby making it a total of three tasks for the assistive system. A prototype called Rec4LRW (Recommendations for Literature Review and Writing) system was developed for providing recommendations for the shortlisted three tasks. The system development was guided by a threefold intervention framework comprising of (i) task redesign for addressing the algorithmic improvements, (ii) task interconnectivity addressing the management of papers between the tasks and (iii) informational display features in the system’s user-interface for expediting researcher’s relevance judgment decisions. The second research objective is addressed in Study II. As a part of Study II, an offline evaluation experiment and a user evaluation study were conducted. An extract of papers from the ACM Digital Library was used as the corpus for the evaluations. A total of 119…

3. Almeida, Maria da Soledade Alves Vaz de. Papel e dinâmica dos portais concelhios : a ponta do iceberg .

Degree: 2015, Universidade Aberta

A cooperação entre a Biblioteca Pública e a Biblioteca Escolar constitui uma orientação clara presente nos Manifestos da IFLA/UNESCO e uma prática entre este tipo de bibliotecas que, em diversos países, tem assumido diferentes tipologias: colaboração; cooperação; integração. Cientes destas orientações e do valor acrescentado que a cooperação representa para cada uma das bibliotecas, surgiram em Portugal os Serviços de Apoio às Bibliotecas Escolares da responsabilidade das Bibliotecas Municipais, e mais tarde as Redes Concelhias que integram cooperantes dos dois tipos de bibliotecas e outras entidades. Estas Redes Concelhias pretendem ser Comunidades de Prática onde se processa a aprendizagem e a colaboração, estando presentes as três dimensões chave que as caracterizam: Domínio, Comunidade, Prática. Neste estudo, procedeu-se à análise exploratória de conteúdo dos 46 Portais Concelhios Bibliotecas Públicas/Bibliotecas Escolares que constituem a amostra e através da aplicação da metodologia de análise de conteúdo, de acordo com diferentes valências pré-definidas, procurámos, numa primeira fase, caracterizar os membros e as Redes/Portais Concelhios, expressando quantitativamente o número de entidades/bibliotecas envolvidas e a idade da Rede/Portal, e, numa segunda fase, procedemos a uma análise de conteúdo dos Portais enquanto Sistemas de Informação, Comunicação e de Documentação orientados para os utilizadores nos seus diferentes contextos, utilizando um conjunto de categorias que definimos com base em outros estudos. Procurámos, igualmente, identificar estratégias que permitam o reforço da cooperação entre este tipo de bibliotecas, surgimento e sustentabilidade de novas Redes Concelhias e identificação, disseminação de boas práticas presentes nos Portais que constituem a amostra em simultâneo com o aproveitamento de novas aplicações tecnológicas. Advisors/Committee Members: Bastos, Glória (advisor).
