Guest Speaker- Dr. Michael K. Buckland

USF School of Library and Information Science and USF University
Libraries jointly present:
Dr. Michael K. Buckland, Professor Emeritus, School of Information ,
University of California at Berkeley on February 3, 2009, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
in CIS Room 1048

Title: "Moving the reference collection online: What librarians forgot."


Abstract:
Understanding depends on knowing the context and background of any
topic, so in a print and paper world, a reference library is an
excellent
place to learn. As library services move into a digital environment,
research on reference service has focused on empowering the reference
librarian rather than the even more important task of empowering the
library user. Reference works can be made accessible online, but more is
needed to take full advantage of digital technology if we are to provide
the best of both worlds. The talk will discuss the issues, demonstrate
prototypes being developed at Berkeley and discuss future possibilities.

Michael Buckland is Emeritus Professor in the School of Information ,
and
Co-Director of the Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative at the
University of California , Berkeley. He was born, educated, and worked
as
a librarian in England before moving the USA . Positions held include
Assistant Director for Technical Services, Purdue University Libraries;
Dean, School of Library and Information Studies at Berkeley ; System
wide
coordinator of library services in the University of California ; and
President of ASIST. Prof. Buckland has published widely, including a
recent biography of the forgotten inventor of search engines "Emanuel
Goldberg and his Knowledge Machine" (2006).
