One Day National Seminar on "Enhancing Access to Library Resources: A Critical Discussion, Examination and Evaluation of Web-Scale Discovery Services" on 14th Oct 2014 @ Jain University, JC Road Campus, Bangalore

SLA Asian Chapter in collaboration with Jain University & KALA, sponsored by ProQuest  Discovery... organizing a One Day National Seminar on " Enhancing Access to Library Resources. A Critical Discussion, Examination and Evaluation of Web-Scale Discovery Services" on 14th Oct 2014 @ Jain University, JC Road Campus, Bangalore.

  v     The  seminar  is intended to be a platform for discussion, knowledge
      sharing  and  demonstration  of  this  emerging technology by eminent
      panel  experts,  subject experts as well as information professionals
      from  premium  institutions,  who are the early adopters of Discovery

  v     To  discover services effectively, we need to be able to measure and
      compare  the  similarity  among  services.  Most  ontology-based  and
      IR-based  discovery  techniques  assume that service input/output are
      simple  data  types  when  calculating  service  similarity. However,
      real-world  services  published  on the Web usually have complex data
      types inputs/output parameters.

  v     Furthermore  a  good  match  of  parameters  does not guarantee good
      usability and good reliability. The relevant services must be further
      evaluated by users? past experiences.

  v     Discovery  services  can  play a vital role in a library?s strategic
      infrastructure.  But it?s not a one-size-fits-all arena. The needs of
      public  and  academic  libraries.  For  example,  differ  enormously.
      Libraries  can  select  from a variety of options to deliver the best
      user  experience,  but  they  must  be  well-equipped  with  data and
      perspective as they place their bets in this critical area.

The  seminar  would  be  a  rare  opportunity for LIS Professionals to gain knowledge  on  the  following  constituents of existing discovery tools and evaluation  criteria,  which  can  help  in  selected tools that fulfil the requirements and is sustainable:
  ?    Library supplied data
  ?    Open access and public domain data
  ?    Publisher metadata and full text
  ?    WSD-licensed material
  ?    Mutually licensed.
  ?    Issues and Challenges of accessibility/e-discovery
  ?    Discovering information within and outsources resources
  ?    Research and corporate needs
  ?    Integration and filtering
  ?    Discovery Dilemma: Volume-to/vs-Relevance
  ?    User needs and satisfaction Handling volumes

Speakers:  Eminent  personalities  in  the LIS field will talk on the above topics?
Interaction: There will be a greater interaction with all participants through Panel Discussion?

Who Can Participate?

Library  and  information  science  professionals and scholars, Information technology professionals, Knowledge workers, Policy makers, Educationalists and  academicians,  E-learning communities, Content and knowledge managers, Library managers, Library consultants/Corporate professionals.

Free but limited 75 (First come first serve basis).
