In concrete terms, the digital humanities embraces a variety of topics, from curating online collections of primary sources (primarily textual) to the data mining of large cultural data sets to the development of maker labs. Digital humanities incorporates both digitized (remediated) and born-digital materials and combines the methodologies from traditional humanities disciplines (such as history, philosophy, linguistics, literature, art, archaeology,music, and cultural studies) and social sciences, with tools provided by computing (such as Hypertext, Hypermedia, data visualization, information retrieval, data mining, statistics, text mining, digital mapping), and digital publishing. Related subfields of digital humanities have emerged like software studies, platform studies and critical code studies. Fields that parallel the digital humanities include new media studies and information science as well as media theory of composition, game studies, particularly in areas related to digital humanities project design and production, cultural analytics and
Abstract: Applied Informatics covers the theory and application of informatics in various scientific, technological, engineering and social fields. It aims to inspire new multidisciplinary research, with the foundations of informatics like information theory, statistical modeling, machine learning, etc as the driving core. This paper mainly focuses the applications of Applied Informatics in the various emerging scientific fields. Keywords: Applied Informatics, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Pattern Recognition I. INTRODUCTION Informatics is the study of the structure, behavior and Interactions of Natural and engineered computational systems.
Therefore, it is often described as being a relatively new approach that investigates language in use with the aid of computers. However, since computer is merely an automaton, for its interpretation still human's interaction becomes the primary means. Corpus linguistics has largely been accepted as an important way of analyzing language in different fields such as lexicography (Hanks, 2012), syntax (Roland, Dick, & Elman, 2007), cognitive linguistics (Gries & Stefanowitsch, 2007), and applied linguistics (Hunston,
The New Literacies is about new “literacies” involving digital media or popular–culture practices (Gee & Handford 2014, p.371). Therefore, the New Literacies Studies, looks at literacy beyond print literacy. According to Gee (2000,p.9)The New Literacies Studies views different digital tools as technologies for giving and getting meaning, just like language. For example, video streaming on the Internet, DVD’s and PlayStation. Like the NLS, the New Literacies Studies also argues, that the meanings to which these technologies give rise are influenced by the social, cultural, historical, and institutional practices of different groups of people.
1 NEW PARTNERSHIPS Some archivists and record managers need to form partnership with other information professionals for effective management of electronic records. Plus, the most valuable partnerships are between information professionals and the decision support personnel, systems analysls and internal auditors. Working with these partnerships is an effective strategy for inserting the archives and records management program into the mainstream process of designing and analysing and modifying electronic information systems. 3.2 NEW SKILLS According to Bantin (2001),the archival profession needs to acquire some new skills to its ”tool kit” to be effective in a world of increasingly automated records. The new skill sets can be grouped
Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University. This study will analyze the impact of IT on users in Management science library. The study will showcase both the sides of the coin. It will help to know the adequacy of the application of modern Information Technologies to academic libraries’ activities and services in Management institutes, what are the advantages from it, and what are the disadvantages of it? The study will also highlight the user’s perception towards the technology based modern libraries.
As Hastings (1996) cited in Laili and Haliza (2012) says it is more important that digital librarians possess particular personal qualities rather than specific technical expertise. This is refer to the information professionals that they must change and adapt to the new electronic information environment. He or she must keep learning about new technologies and be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of them. These information professionals within the libraries are playing an increasing role in dealing with information in forms of electronic
In searching for information in documents we are lead into the research area of Information Retrieval. 1.2.1 Information Retrieval The area of Information Retrieval is almost as old as computing itself. A concise defini- tion of Information retrieval as given by [MRS+08]: “Information retrieval (IR) is finding material (usually documents) of an unstructured nature (usually text) that satisfies an information need from within large collections (usually stored on computers).” In other words, an information retrieval system is a software programme that stores and manages information on documents.Documents can be searched for and some suggested documents will, hopefully, satisfy the user’s information need. These documents are called relevant documents. A perfect retrieval system would retrieve only the relevant documents and no irrelevant document.
Abstract: As the environment changes we also have to change ourselves accordingly. This is the era of digital libraries varied from the traditional libraries, so the users and their needs have to be continuously monitored by studying them. This paper focuses on some common blocks and dumb terminals in satisfying user needs and also illustrates various techniques used for user studies. It includes one real life international case study which will help the participants to get a better understanding what studies could be particularly helpful according to the products and services they develop how to involve users in digital library evaluation, and how to engage better with users. Keywords: User studies, User needs, Methods of user studies Scope: Readers of this article will gain an introductory understanding of: - Basic models on users in the digital library domain; - Key user
1.3 Significance of the Study ICT has become a critical component of the information generation, processing and dissemination process of the modern academic library. As Academic Libraries across the globe respond to changes in technological developments and the changing needs of its patrons (Parvez, 2011), the use of ICT continues to expand and the need for the library administrators to adopt strategies to ensure effective use and maintenance of ICT facilities cannot be overemphasized. The key objective of this research is to analyse the impact of leadership strategies for ICT adoption in libraries. Through empirical analysis, the study may help to unravel the challenges, such as a lack of institutional regulations, in deploying an ICT infrastructure
