Hi Ian,

I am interested in joining the Nominations committee or some other one that needs members. And believe me, I am well aware of Jaleh's strong arm tactics. Debbie

Dear Colleagues,
 
Perhaps you are not terribly enthusiastic about our potential national
candidates for political office. Perhaps you have come to the conclusion
that change starts locally, with your favorite professional association
(MELA of course). And so you have been searching for a way to contribute,
to make sure that the slate of candidates for office in this highly
respected institution are above reproach (well, honestly, I don't know how
thorough our background checks will be). Here is your chance!
 
Please consider joining the nominations committee. Your input and energy
will help ensure that we have the leadership needed to continue the good
work of this organization.
 
If you are interested or just want to know more about how you can further
the causes of freedom, democracy, prosperity and getting your favorite
people get into positions of power do not hesitate to contact me directly.
 
[And if you don't, then Jaleh will begin to strong arm folks into
volunteering (she knows how many of you are only on one committee and could
be eligible) - and I don't have the stomach for those kinds of tactics]
 
Best,
Ian

Dear APALA members,

If you plan to attend ALA Annual Orlando, please join us for the APALA 2016
President's Program titled From Vietnam to Syria: Refugees, Their Stories,
and Needs. Included in this email: the description of event and attached
poster. 

Program Description
During the Vietnam War, thousands of refugees fled the fighting and
political violence in Southeast Asia and came to the United States. Some of
these refugees settled in Orlando, establishing what is today the largest
Asian population in the region. At the APALA President's Program,
co-sponsored by IRRT and REFORMA, Vietnamese Americans will tell their
stories about fleeing the violence for a new life and librarians will share
their programs and strategies for helping today's refugees. Many parallels
can be drawn between the refugee migration during the Vietnam War and the
current crisis in the Middle East. Join us to discuss what roles libraries
can play in aiding the millions of refugees and unaccompanied refugee
children in their time of need.


For the full list of APALA events at ALA:
http://www.apalaweb.org/ala-annual-2016/

Please, forward this email onto other communities that may be interested.

Thank you, 

APALA Publicity Committee

Bibliotheca Alexandrina launches the online version of MARC 21 in Arabic

FYI.

Iman.

 

***********************

Alexandria, Egypt, 23 May 2016.

 

The Bibliotheca Alexandrina launches the online version of MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data in Arabic.

The online version is accessible from the Arabic Bibliographic Standards website (www.bibalex.org/ABS), launched earlier this May. It is a free edition that provides Arab catalogers with a selection of the most commonly used fields in cataloging monographic and serial items specifically, and adopts a tailored field description structure.

The online version covers until update 21, published in September 2015, featuring the complete Format Summary of the bibliographic format, and core fields accommodating emerging cataloging rules, i.e. Resource Description and Access (RDA), manifested in fields 264, 336, 337, and 338. It includes Arabic examples boosting Arab cataloging rules and practices.

The online version of MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data in Arabic introduces the release of the full print edition that will be in three volumes. Intended to be available for acquisition by users and institutions, the print edition is a complete Arabization of the original MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data as published by the Library of Congress.

MELA 2016 CfP

Hello all,

 

Please share widely.  Looking forward to seeing you all in Boston.

 

Best wishes,

Sharon

 

Partnerships: Enhancing opportunities is this year’s theme for the annual Middle East Librarians Association (MELA) meeting. The meeting will be hosted by the Aga Khan Documentation Center at MIT, and will take place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA, 15-17 November 2016.

 

Middle East librarians, and more generally Area Studies librarians, have a long history of cooperation and partnerships. Indeed, it is through partnerships that programs such as the Middle East Cooperative Acquisitions Program (MECAP), and the Center for Research Libraries’ (CRL) Middle East Materials Project (MEMP) developed. These programs have been instrumental for our communities, the research being conducted, and highlight some of the larger initiatives that have taken place over the years. Other large scale projects have made collections available digitally encouraging and enabling new avenues of scholarship. The profusion of digital humanities projects being created highlights the ever-changing ways in which scholars interact with each other, scholarship is produced, and is providing enhanced opportunities for long-distance and international partnerships.

 

Partnering with institutions to further our goals as a community is essential; we invite papers of no more than 20 minutes exploring historical and contemporary partnerships. Preference will be given to partnerships with libraries (or museums) in the MENA region.

 

Presentations dedicated to investigating, analysing, and discussing the opportunities, challenges, and experiences with all types of partnerships are welcome, including but not limited to:

 

Community building

Collection development

Rights, rules, and regulations of multi-party ownership

Resource sharing

Digitization practices

Documentation practices

Negotiating standards

Enhancing metadata for accessibility across platforms

Reciprocal agreements for shared materials

 

Submission guidelines

  • Proposals should be a maximum of 250 words.

  • Please send your proposals to vice-president-nKL4qXb96vI@public.gmane.org in a word document.

  • Proposals will be reviewed by the Program Committee.

  • Proposals must include a title and clearly demonstrate relevancy to this year’s theme, Partnerships: Enhancing opportunities.

  • Submission deadline is 31 August 2016.

  • Session format is a 30 minute presentation (20 minute presentation with 10 minutes for questions).

Notification

  • All submitters will be notified by 21 September 2016.

  • All presenters will be asked to submit a brief biography (max 100 words), a photograph, and an abbreviated abstract to be published in the program and posted on the MELA website.

  • All presenters will be asked to make their presentation available on the conference website.

 

While MELA is not in a position to pay honoraria or provide financial support for travel and lodging, we will waive program registration fees for presenters. Presenters are expected to be full paid MELA members.

Citation verification Question.

Dear Colleagues Melanet Members,

I would like to request your help to verify the following citation as the page numbers and the date are missing.

  Gamal al-Ghitany, “Imarat Ya’qubyan,” Akhbar al-Adab:350 

Is there some way we can find the date of this publication? It is an Egyptian weekly and this must around 2002-03 but I am not sure.

At UC Berkeley, we have the issues after 2005. Please send reply to my library address. Lpendse-pJ6Lu2hYgzhNUtnGCQ6U1fZ8FUJU4vz8@public.gmane.org

Many thanks in advance.

Fwd: #BUDSC16: Negotiating Borders through Digital Collaboration

fyi

From: Courtney Paddick <cmp018-JeZF1WbMTUv2fBVCVOL8/A@public.gmane.org>
Date: Wed, May 18, 2016 at 3:42 PM
Subject: #BUDSC16: Negotiating Borders through Digital Collaboration

***Apologies for cross posting***


Proposals are due May 31st!



Bucknell University, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will host its third annual digital scholarship conference on October 28-30, 2016. The theme of the conference is “Negotiating Borders through Digital Collaboration.”

 

This conference will bring together a broad community of practitioners--faculty, researchers, librarians, educational technologists, and students--who are using technology to rethink seemingly intractable borders within and outside of the university. We define “borders” as boundaries that limit access; conditions that differentiate insiders from outsiders; or any obstacle that impairs open communication and collaboration.

 

We invite proposals that explore or critique digital modes of scholarly, cultural, and political intersectionality. Special consideration will be given to proposals that demonstrate how crossing institutional boundaries, whether within or beyond the university, can facilitate the expansion of borders, broadly conceived.

 

Some topics may include:

 

  • Digital tools that bridge the gap between scholarship and teaching
  • Computational methods that explore intersections of identity, power, and social justice
  • Global and multilingual aspects of digital scholarship
  • The role of technology in creating communities of practice that bridge cultural, racial, and economic divides
  • Digital technologies that facilitate equitable collaborations between faculty and students, or that bridge the town/gown divide
  • New modes of inquiry that negotiate and rethink normative ideas of gender and sexuality
  • Forms of digital scholarship that allow for increased accessibility

 

Presentations may take the form of interactive presentations, project demos, electronic posters, panel discussions, work-in-progress sessions, workshops, or lightning talks.

 

We look forward to building on the success of the last two years, in which instructional technologists, librarians, archivists, faculty, students, and community members came together to discuss challenges, share working models, reflect on projects, and inspire new avenues for actively including students in public scholarly pursuits. For more information, please view our video from the 2015 meeting and visit the conference website.

 

Proposals due May 31, 2016 via the online application form.

 

 

Thanks,
Courtney
