Thank you very much.

Please Participate in the Middle East Library Partnership Project Survey on International Collaboration

Dear MELA members,

 

On behalf of professor Charles Kurzman in the Department of Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the project’s advisory board, I would to ask you to participate in the Middle East Library Partnership Project Survey on International Collaboration. The survey is available in three languages Arabic, English and French; so please feel free to select the language you like. Please read below for more information about the project and a direct link to the survey:

 

The Middle East Library Partnership project at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is conducting a survey of library and information professionals and educators, and we would like to hear from you. You have received this invitation because you are a member of a library and information science professional organization, an employee of a library specializing on the Middle East, or a library and information science researcher at an institution in the Middle East.

 

https://unc.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_brre2M4MD7xcded

 

We hope that you will help us in this endeavor and give us about 20 minutes of your time to respond to the survey in our online questionnaire. To access the questionnaire, please click the link. We also encourage you to pass this message along to any other library and information professionals or educators who may be interested in responding.

 

About the survey:

 

The purpose of this survey is to investigate the state of international collaboration between Middle East and United States libraries. This survey focuses on international collaborative projects between libraries, archives and other institutions. A few examples of the types of collaborations we are seeking to better understand are as follows:

 

      Staff exchange and training projects

      Projects that seek to digitize resources and make them available online

      Conservation and preservation projects

      Cataloging projects

      Projects that seek to make international researchers aware of resources in a library

      Projects to enhance interlibrary borrowing and sharing of resources

      Library consortium projects

      Other international projects

 

About the project:

 

The Middle East Library Partnership project is a year-long research project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that seeks to better understand inter-institutional collaboration in an international context. We are also working to gather information about the state of automated transfer of catalog and holdings information between institutions in international contexts. This survey represents the first major activity for the project. We hope that it will lead to insights that will benefit subsequent research and collaborations in library and information science.

 

https://unc.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_brre2M4MD7xcded

 

Thank you very much for your interest.

 

Sincerely,

 

Professor Charles Kurzman

Online Magazine Brings New Life to Arab Studies

Ursula Lindsey

The week after President Obama announced a stepped-up military campaign against jihadists in Iraq and Syria, the online magazine Jadaliyya responded. An essay by the Lebanese historian Fawwaz Traboulsi argued that the so-called Islamic State was born of the United States' 2003 war on Iraq, local despotism and the thwarted hopes of the 2011 Arab uprisings. Jadaliyya's editors were also busy in September publishing regular updates and letters of support for Steven G. Salaita, whose job offer from the University of Illinois had been rescinded over his tweets criticizing Israel.

That direct engagement with both political and academic issues is typical of the magazine, multilingual, multidisciplinary review of Middle Eastern studies.

[MELANET-L] FW: Call for Submissions: Information: Interactions and Impact (i³) - Deadline: Monday 19th January 2015

-----Original Message-----
From: Information and/or Library Studies in the UK [mailto:LIS-BAILER <at> JISCMAIL.AC.UK] On Behalf Of
Katie Cooper
Sent: 10 October 2014 10:12
To: LIS-BAILER@...
Subject: Call for Submissions: Information: Interactions and Impact (i³) - Deadline: Monday 19th
January 2015

***Apologies for Cross-posting***

Call for Submissions: Information: Interactions and Impact (i³)
Deadline: Monday 19 January 2015

i3 focuses on the quality and effectiveness of the interaction between people and information and how this
interaction can bring about change. The conference will look beyond the issues of use and accessibility
of technology to questions about the way people interact with the information and knowledge content of
today's systems and services, and how this might ultimately affect the impact of that information on
individuals, organisations and communities.

We invite the submission of high quality papers that report original research or critically discuss
underlying methodological issues associated with the main themes of the conference. Papers may reflect
ongoing or completed research studies and should not have been previously published or be currently
under consideration for publication elsewhere. We would particularly welcome papers which address two
or more of the following conference themes:

•       the quality and effectiveness of user/information interactions (e.g. information literacies);
•       patterns of information behaviour in different contexts (e.g. creativity, ethics, surveillance,
ownership, information recycling/reuse);
•       the social, cultural and economic impacts of engagement with information, including the assessment
of impact;
•       the value of information and knowledge as enablers of resilience and change in organisations and communities.

By looking at these issues i3 seeks to influence the development of research towards a fuller
understanding of the role of information in a complex, fast-moving information society.

Submissions are invited for:
•       Full papers (40 minutes duration: 35 minutes, 5 minutes for questions);
•       Short papers (15 minutes duration: questions at end of session); and
•       Round table discussions (60-80 minutes duration).

Authors who are accepted to give full papers at i3 will also be invited to submit a full paper for
consideration by the editorial board of the Journal of Information Science (http://jis.sagepub.com)
for a special issue in spring 2016.

Contributors should submit abstracts of 1000 words (excluding the list of references) for full papers,
and 300-500 words (excluding the list of references) for short papers and round table discussions.  These
should be submitted electronically by downloading the online submissions form, located on the Call for
Papers section of the website (http://www.rgu.ac.uk/i3conference2015). This should then be emailed
(as an attachment) to i3submissions <at> rgu.ac.uk. The conference language will be English.

Submissions will be anonymously reviewed by two members of the International Programme Committee
specialising in one or more of the conference research streams.  Notification of acceptance will be
emailed to authors and will also include the comments of the reviewers.

Full details of the requirements can be found in the Call for Papers section of the website. The deadline for
receipt of abstracts is 19 January 2015.

For any further information please see http://www.rgu.ac.uk/i3conference2015, or contact the
conference team at i3information@...
