Technology has transformed how libraries, archives, and museums store and display their collections, engage with their users, and serve their communities. The pressure to implement new technologies is constant, but technology that isn´t truly useful to users, staff, and stakeholders can represent a huge investment of time and money that yields little reward. In order to make meaningful technology changes in our libraries, archives, and museums, we need a flexible toolkit that will help information professionals become change leaders, navigating the equally complex variables associated with system specs and human experience or perception. Change management incorporates these concerns into a comprehensive framework. Change management principles form the foundation for this book´s approach to managing technology change. While change will inevitably elicit unexpected situations or complications, cultivating a change management repertoire can help information professionals better identify opportunities for valuable technology change, plan and execute those changes, assess the process, and translate the experience into enriched plans for the future. Whether you have been managing library systems for decades or are an MLIS student, this book is designed to introduce you to change management principles and practical skills that you can apply to your local organization´s needs. Chapters on assessment, communication, and iterative change outline a wide range of skills that can facilitate changes like an ILS migration, makerspace launch, website re-design, or room reservation process overhaul. The condensed case studies integrated throughout the book demonstrate the breadth of technology changes taking place in the field and give first-hand accounts of triumphs and learning experiences. There is universal template that guarantees successful technology change. But a robust change management toolkit can cultivate organizational adaptability and responsiveness that empowers libraries, archives, and museums to make the most of current technology changes and positions them to embrace new ones.
This study presents a bibliometric analysis of LIS faculties of North-East and East region in India. The main objectives of the study is to find out top authors in terms of publications, top cited authors, top G-Index, H-index authors, top cited papers etc. In the present study, we considered the only LIS faculties of Universities from North-East and East region in India, where LIS education offer. The data was collected from Google Scholar using Publish or Perish software. Furthermore, the study was considered only those faculties which were listed in the university website. The Study found the 32 LIS faculty and authors contributed 967 papers from 1980-2017. Out of 967 publications, majority of 452 publications found in the form of journal articles, followed 325 conference papers and 112 book chapters.

From the creators of the Sketchbook Project, a companion sketchbook that features guided prompts from the original project to inspire anyone who wants to connect to this unique community. The Sketchbook Project is a constantly evolving library of artists´ sketchbooks from around the globe. The library annually tours its completed sketchbooks, exhibiting in galleries across 15 countries. To enroll, participants sign up on The Sketchbook Project website and receive a blank sketchbook for a nominal fee. Once completed, artists mail in their finished sketchbooks to the Art House Library in Brooklyn, where each one is given a unique barcode, digitized for online viewing, and displayed in the Library´s permanent collection. The Sketchbook Journal is a guided sketchbook that offers the project´s annual prompts and themes (as well as never before published prompts) posted on their website that participants of the project use for inspiration. The companion sketchbook also includes specific references to the digitized library for further sketching and doodling ideas. Meant as a precursor to the actual Sketchbook Project, this journal helps to get the creative juices flowing and references an impressive global community of artists.
With more than 150 detailed recipes, this cookbook shows experienced Clojure developers how to solve a variety of programming tasks with this JVM language. The solutions cover everything from building dynamic websites and working with databases to network communication, cloud computing, and advanced testing strategies. And more than 60 of the world?s best Clojurians contributed recipes. Each recipe includes code that you can use right away, along with a discussion on how and why the solution works, so you can adapt these patterns, approaches, and techniques to situations not specifically covered in this cookbook. * Master built-in primitive and composite data structures * Create, develop and publish libraries, using the Leiningen tool * Interact with the local computer that?s running your application * Manage network communication protocols and libraries * Use techniques for connecting to and using a variety of databases * Build and maintain dynamic websites, using the Ring HTTP server library * Tackle application tasks such as packaging, distributing, profiling, and logging * Take on cloud computing and heavyweight distributed data crunching * Dive into unit, integration, simulation, and property-based testing Clojure Cookbook is a collaborative project with contributions from some of the world?s best Clojurians, whose backgrounds range from aerospace to social media, banking to robotics, AI research to e-commerce.
Tell more effective visual stories by learning the ´´grammar´´ of cinematic language with this elegant, accessible reference. The fourth edition of Grammar of the Edit gives you the answers to the all-important questions of when to cut and why, and teaches readers the principles behind transitions, editing for continuity, selecting the best shots, editing sound, color correction, and more. Designed as an easy-to-use guide, Grammar of the Edit presents each topic succinctly with clear photographs and diagrams illustrating key concepts, practical exercises and quiz questions, and is a staple of any filmmaker´s library. New to the fourth edition: An expanded companion website offering downloadable and editable raw footage so that students can practice the techniques described in the book, and instructional videos showcasing examples of different editing choices and types of shot transitions. New and expanded quiz questions and practical exercises at the end of each chapter help test readers on their knowledge using real-world scenarios. Updated topic discussions, explanations, illustrations and visual examples. An all-new chapter on Sound resources in filmmaking and Audio Editing guidelines. Together with its companion volume, Grammar of the Shot, the core concepts discussed in these books offer concise and practical resources for both experienced and aspiring filmmakers.
A decision procedure is an algorithm that, given a decision problem, terminates with a correct yes/no answer. Here, the authors focus on theories that are expressive enough to model real problems, but are still decidable. Specifically, the book concentrates on decision procedures for first-order theories that are commonly used in automated verification and reasoning, theorem-proving, compiler optimization and operations research. The techniques described in the book draw from fields such as graph theory and logic, and are routinely used in industry. The authors introduce the basic terminology of satisfiability modulo theories and then, in separate chapters, study decision procedures for each of the following theories: propositional logic; equalities and uninterpreted functions; linear arithmetic; bit vectors; arrays; pointer logic; and quantified formulas. They also study the problem of deciding combined theories and dedicate a chapter to modern techniques based on an interplay between a SAT solver and a decision procedure for the investigated theory. This textbook has been used to teach undergraduate and graduate courses at ETH Zurich, at the Technion, Haifa, and at the University of Oxford. Each chapter includes a detailed bibliography and exercises. Lecturers´ slides and a C++ library for rapid prototyping of decision procedures are available from the authors´ website.
