Essential Classification

Vanda Broughton, University College London

2015 336pp | £49.95 Paperback: 9781783300310

Review of the previous edition: "...this work will be one that many novices both in schools of library and information studies and in the actual working environment will relate to and find a palatable and manageable introduction to a discipline which many find mystifying in the early stages. Its provision of exercises and answers (often the best way of working out how a class number should be built, when one has little knowledge of a classification scheme) make it a teach yourself book in the twenty-first-century style." - I C McIlwaine, Editor in Chief, Universal Decimal Classification

Essential Classification leads the novice classifier step by step through the basics of subject cataloguing, with an emphasis on practical document analysis and classification. It deals with fundamental questions of the purpose of classification in different situations, and the needs and expectations of end users. The reader is introduced to the ways in which document content can be assessed, and how this can best be expressed for translation into the language of specific indexing and classification systems.

Fully updated to reflect changes to the major general schemes (Library of Congress, LCSH, Dewey and UDC) since the first edition, and with new chapters on working with informal classification, from folksonomies to tagging and social media, this new edition of Essential Classification will set cataloguers on the right path. Key areas covered are: • • • • • •

RDA and Cartographic Resources

the need for classification the variety of classification the structure of classification working with informal classification management aspects of classification classification in digital space.

Readership: This guide is essential reading for library school students, novice cataloguers and all information workers who need to classify but have not formally been taught how. It also offers practical guidance to computer scientists, internet and intranet managers, and all others concerned with the design and maintenance of subject tools.

How to create a service culture

“This is probably one of the best books on leadership in libraries that has come out so far. It is a great resource not only for librarians who are already in leadership positions but for those who wish to lead who may not be quite ready to do so.” - Against the Grain

The book provides guidance on how to apply the values of service leadership to both public and academic libraries. Through the use of examples, exercises, and tools for development, this book walks readers through the steps needed to create a sustainable, service-oriented model by:

• explaining how a service culture reaches beyond the individual leader with positional authority and extends to all individuals • showing ways to build rapport and trust within an organization, and how to balance encouragement with accountability • detailing strategic thinking and planning methods that will lead to improvements in customer service, human resources, organizational development, and training • helping library leaders create a sustainable service culture through codifying their organization’s values, with advice on policies and procedures such as recruitment, performance evaluation, compensation, and succession planning • discussing the environment of change in libraries, showing how a library’s organizational culture is at the centre of being responsive and staying relevant.

Readership: This book will be useful for information professionals and aspiring leaders seeking to understand leadership and to develop their own service-lead leadership. NEW

The challenges of providing access to increasingly diverse content demand innovative approaches, risk taking, and close collaboration to leverage the respective strengths of all stakeholders.

Shared Collections provides a snapshot of models for curating content at the collective level and highlights strategies for developing and managing shared collections and leveraging resources to meet readers’ complex information needs. The book is divided into three parts:

• Part 1 outlines general considerations influencing relationship building when developing a shared collection. • Part 2 comprises case studies ranging from local and regional efforts to consortia approaches that leverage institutional resources in developing a ‘collective collection’. • Part 3 suggests future directions for retrospective as well as prospective collection building and management as libraries transition from local isolated collections to robust collaborative stewardship of the intellectual record.

Readership: This book will be essential reading for library managers, systems librarians, library technicians and all those who are engaged in developing strategies for building, managing, and providing access to shared collections that meet the needs of current and future generations of readers.

Sustainability of Scholarly Information

The Data Librarian’s Handbook

Robin C Rice, University of Edinburgh and John Southall, Oxford University

Jun 2016 224pp Pbk | £54.95: 9781783300471 Hbk | £89.95: 9781783300983

G G Chowdhury, Northumbria University

The importance of data has never been greater. There has been a growing concern with the ‘skills gap’ required to exploit the data surfeit; the ability to collect, compute and crunch data, for economic, social and scientific purposes. This book, written by two working data librarians based at the Universities of Oxford and Edinburgh aims to help fill this skills gap by providing a nuts and bolts guide to research data support.

The Data Librarian’s Handbook draws on a combination of over 30 years’ experience providing data support services to create the ‘must-read’ book for all in this field. This book ‘zooms in’ to the actual library service level, where the interaction between the researcher and the librarian takes place. Both engaging and practical, this book draws the reader in through storytelling and suggested activities, linking concepts from one chapter to another.
