STIMULATE 9 Scientific and Technological Information Management for Universities and Libraries: an Active Training Environment 9 th edition 4/5/09-29/7/09 Joseph M. Yap Information Resource Officer ACTMalaria Presented in Brussels, Belgium ACTMalaria, 11/f Ramon Magsaysay Center 1680 Roxas Blvd., Malate, Manila, Philippines 1004
Contents of the program 1.Management in Libraries and Information Centers (statistics, scientometrics, consortia, informetrics and copyright) 2.ICT in libraries and information centers (networks, image processing, metadata harvesting, OAI) 3.Information retrieval and searching (bibliographic databases, citation searching, open access) 4.Information architecture and digital libraries (ISIS, ABCD, Greenstone, DSpace, Institutional Repositories) 5.Study Visits in Libraries
How to improve the organization of the program? Include pre-test/ post-test which is always a part of a training programme for evaluation; Provide the complete hand-outs at the beginning of the programme; If possible, provide a better route going to the Etterbeek campus. Tram is possible (line 23, 24 or 25) going to/from Petillion. (walking is tiring!) Or avoid having class in Etterbeek Forgot to advice us about the one-month public transport ticket (STIB/MIVB).
Strong points of the organization of the program Project Assistant (Alex Coppens) always sends to remind the group of various activities and schedule; Continuously update the online program; More time for assignments (lecture free day)
Academic contents: best Exploring web of science, journal citation reports, library statistics, informetrics Learning how to use Greenstone and ISIS (ABCD) Participation in an international conference (30 th IATUL in Leuven) -our own libraries become a member of IATUL for one year
Academic contents: worst Not really worst, they just need some more time and clarification: Network graphs/ theory XML Harvesting services
Recommendations for ACTMalaria/ NCHP/ MAHLAP Establish DSpace for Institutional Repository of ACTMalaria and its partner libraries Introduce DSpace or Greenstone for digitized AV materials of NCHP – Department of Health Promote information literacy to ACTMalaria and the institutional libraries of MAHLAP STIMULATE 9 participants
