A discussion forum and collaborative authoring platform for LIS professionals.
This is an updated version of an encyclopaedia entry written in 2014. It gives a succinct overview of the discipline of library and information science (LIS).
Open Access (OA) initiatives, movements and policies have had a large impact on scholarly communication publishing and dissemination. This is of particular interest to Library and Information Science, through implementation, ethics and how libraries and librarians engage with the process. Library and Information Science principally concerns itself with the organisation and sharing of information and knowledge, considering the impoteus behind the OA movement in contrast to recent commercial implementation.
Librarians, pharmacists, and scientists encounter diverse challenges relating to knowledge management, the creation, organization, and retrieval of information. This session will highlight current challenges faced in this area by colleagues from across the Academy. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in two roundtable discussions. By the end of the session, participants will be able to describe current challenges faced in Library and Information Science, and bring solutions back to their academic program. These slides include the “Formulating a Pharmacy Collection Without a Prescription” portion of the panel, which discussed the collection development process for a group of non-health science librarians tasked with building a pharmacy library collection for a new school at a traditionally liberal arts institution.
