The Web as History. Type Book Author Niels Brügger Author Ralph Schroeder URL https://ift.tt/2zlqcPH Publisher UCL Press Date 2017 Accessed 2018-09-19 20:39:34 Library Catalog onesearch.cuny.edu Language eng Abstract The World Wide Web has now been in use for more than 20 years. From early browsers to today’s principal source of information, entertainment and much else, the Web is an integral part of our daily lives, to the extent that some people believe ‘if it’s not online, it doesn’t exist.’ While this statement is not entirely true, it is becoming increasingly accurate, and reflects the Web’s role as an indispensable treasure trove. It is curious, therefore, that historians and social scientists have thus far made little use of the Web to investigate historical patterns of culture and society, despite making good use of letters, novels, newspapers, radio and television programmes, and other pre-digital artefacts. This volume argues that now is the time to ask what we have learnt from the Web so far. The 12 chapters explore this topic from a number of interdisciplinary angles – through histories of national web spaces and case studies of different government and media domains – as well as an introduction that provides an overview of this exciting new area of research. .

Examining Undergraduate Students' Priorities for Academic Library Services and Social Media Communication. Type Journal Article Author Besiki Stvilia Author Leila Gibradze URL https://ift.tt/2NkM1GB Volume 43 Issue 3 Pages 257-262 Publication The Journal of Academic Librarianship ISSN 0099-1333 Date May 1, 2017 Journal Abbr The Journal of Academic Librarianship DOI 10.1016/j.acalib.2017.02.013 Accessed 2018-09-19 14:19:59 Library Catalog ScienceDirect Abstract Academic libraries can effectively plan and market their services by identifying the value users perceive in their services and in their social media communications about those services. This study reports on findings of a survey of 104 undergraduate students in information technology courses at a large research university. Results of an ordered logistic regression analysis indicated that students considered access to information and computer resources and study support services as the most important library services offered. Likewise, students perceived library social media postings related to operations updates, study support services, and events as the most useful. Future related research will investigate the needs and priorities for library services of other key user populations of academic libraries, such as graduate students and online students, to assemble service repertoires that are tailored to individual user groups. In addition, future research will examine whether and how libraries can use the analysis of users' engagement with a library's social media postings to inexpensively gauge the value they perceive in library services. .

Dimensions and elements of people's mental models of an information-rich Web space. Type Journal Article Author Yan Zhang URL https://ift.tt/2Pirq2f Rights © 2010 ASIS&T Volume 61 Issue 11 Pages 2206-2218 Publication Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology ISSN 1532-2890 Date 2010-11-01 DOI 10.1002/asi.21406 Accessed 2018-08-30 20:48:00 Library Catalog Wiley Online Library Language en Abstract Although considered proxies for people to interact with a system, mental models have produced limited practical implications for system design. This might be due to the lack of exploration of the elements of mental models resulting from the methodological challenge of measuring mental models. This study employed a new method, concept listing, to elicit people's mental models of an information-rich space, MedlinePlus, after they interacted with the system for 5 minutes. Thirty-eight undergraduate students participated in the study. The results showed that, in this short period of time, participants perceived MedlinePlus from many different aspects in relation to four components: the system as a whole, its content, information organization, and interface. Meanwhile, participants expressed evaluations of or emotions about the four components. In terms of the procedural knowledge, an integral part of people's mental models, only one participant identified a strategy more aligned to the capabilities of MedlinePlus to solve a hypothetical task; the rest planned to use general search and browse strategies. The composition of participants' mental models of MedlinePlus was consistent with that of their models of information-rich Web spaces in general. .

Millennial Students' Mental Models of Search: Implications for Academic Librarians and Database Developers. Type Journal Article Author Lucy Holman Volume 37 Issue 1 Pages 19-27 Publication Journal of Academic Librarianship ISSN 00991333 Date January 2011 Journal Abbr Journal of Academic Librarianship Library Catalog EBSCOhost Abstract Today's students exhibit generational differences in the way they search for information. Observations of first-year students revealed a proclivity for simple keyword or phrases searches with frequent misspellings and incorrect logic. Although no students had strong mental models of search mechanisms, those with stronger models did construct more complex searches. Reprinted by permission of the publisher.

Web site credibility: Why do people believe what they believe?. Type Journal Article Author Marie K. Iding Author Martha E. Crosby Author Brent Auernheimer Author E. Barbara Klemm URL https://ift.tt/2N1qbH3 Volume 37 Issue 1 Pages 43-63 Publication Instructional Science ISSN 00204277 Date January 2009 Journal Abbr Instructional Science DOI 10.1007/s11251-008-9080-7 Accessed 2018-08-30 20:20:52 Library Catalog EBSCOhost Abstract This research investigates university students’ determinations of credibility of information on Web sites, confidence in their determinations, and perceptions of Web site authors’ vested interests. In Study 1, university-level computer science and education students selected Web sites determined to be credible and Web sites that exemplified misrepresentations. Categorization of Web site credibility determinations indicated that the most frequently provided reasons associated with high credibility included information focus or relevance, educational focus, and name recognition. Reasons for knowing a Web site’s content is wrong included lack of corroboration with other information, information focus and bias. Vested interests associated with commercial Web sites were regarded with distrust and vested interests of educational Web sites were not. In Study 2, credibility determinations of university students enrolled in computer science courses were examined for 3 provided Web sites dealing with the same computer science topic. Reasons for determining Web site inaccuracy included own expertise, information corroboration, information design and bias. As in Study 1, commercial vested interests were negatively regarded in contrast to educational interests. Instructional implications and suggestions for further research are discussed.

Identifying E-Resources: An Exploratory Study of University Students. Type Journal Article Author Amy Buhler Author Tara Cataldo URL https://ift.tt/2PirkHV Volume 60 Issue 1 Pages 23-37 Publication Library Resources & Technical Services ISSN 00242527 Date January 2016 Journal Abbr Library Resources & Technical Services Accessed 2018-08-30 20:15:36 Library Catalog EBSCOhost Abstract This preliminary study assesses university students' ability to identify document types or information containers (journal, article, book, etc.) and different types of search tools (database, search engine) in the online environment. It is imperative to understand students' behaviors due to the pervasiveness of online resources and their impact on information literacy. A survey administered at the University of Florida sought to investigate this phenomenon and queried respondents about their age, higher education level, exposure to bibliographic instruction, and time devoted to school-related online searching. Analyses of 765 responses show that many students cannot consistently correctly identify these containers and behavioral characteristics have no influence on this process. This has implications for the online information seeking process and judging credibility and is of importance to the library, education, and publishing communities. Recommendations for these various communities are discussed. .

Developing a unifying framework of credibility assessment: Construct, heuristics, and interaction in context. Type Journal Article Author Brian Hilligoss Author Soo Young Rieh Volume 44 Issue 4 Pages 1467-1484 Publication Information Processing & Management ISSN 03064573 Date July 2008 Journal Abbr Information Processing & Management DOI 10.1016/j.ipm.2007.10.001 Library Catalog EBSCOhost Abstract This article presents a unifying framework of credibility assessment in which credibility is characterized across a variety of media and resources with respect to diverse information seeking goals and tasks. The initial data were collected through information-activity diaries over a 10-day period from 24 undergraduate students at three different colleges. Based on 245 information seeking activities from the diaries, the authors conducted individual interviews with participants and analyzed the transcripts using a grounded theory analysis. Three distinct levels of credibility judgments emerged: construct, heuristics, and interaction. The construct level pertains to how a person constructs, conceptualizes, or defines credibility. The heuristics level involves general rules of thumb used to make judgments of credibility applicable to a variety of situations. Finally, the interaction level refers to credibility judgments based on content, peripheral source cues, and peripheral information object cues. In addition, context emerged as the social, relational and dynamic frames surrounding the information seeker and providing boundaries of credibility judgments. The implications of the framework in terms of its theoretical contribution to credibility research and practices are discussed. Short Title Developing a unifying framework of credibility assessment .
