Life Cycle of Information was from 555, Information Systems in Libraries and Information Centers. Life Cycle of Information begins with Investigation and Analysis (using entity-relationship diagrams, data flow diagrams and flowcharts), moves on to Design and Implementation (started all at once or involving parallel or incremental implementation) and finishes with Operation & Maintenance (periodic reviews).

Can anyone share what the Life Cycle of Information is? What are the different stages? What class was this from?
Thanks!

I went but found that no one was there so I left. As a result, there is no new info to post.

Hi. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it to this study session. If someone who attends this can please post a meeting summary sometime afterwards, it would be greatly and most humbly appreciated! Thank you! :-)

We talked about primarily reference at this meeting. We underscored the importance of Samuel Greene's "Personal Relations between Librarians and Readers?" and RUSA's The Future of Reference Services Papers. In addition, the group went over the subject outline for reference under the LSC 553 link, with each person contributing what he or she knew about each subject. The topics for next week will be metadata, Library 2.0, information retrieval, Google vs. Opac, cataloging and user-created content. We hope to see you there.

We talked about a number of different topics, and tried to relate them all back to technology (especially since we're supposed to be able to carry a narrow focus through a number of different subject areas).

We compared and contrasted "As We May Think" by Vannevar Bush (June 1945, Atlantic Monthly) and Michael Gorman's "Web 2.0: The Sleep of Reason" and "Google in God's Mind". Gorman is a traditionalist who who thinks technology should be a tool of the librarian, and not fundamental to the profession, while Bush, who wrote his article within a decade of the military's first networked computers, really saw how technology could potentially be applied in the future to ease (and shift) the burdens of the information profession.

The role of information systems, and how it changed from mathematical calculations intended to save human labor to networking and communications (Web 2.0 emphasizes the communicative skills/tools such as podcasts, wikis, blogs, social taggings, mash-ups, and other methods of utilizing input from users).

open source v. proprietary software (the articles for this are from the June 2005 MIT Technology Review: Lessig and Epstein's dialogue "The People Own Ideas!" "The Creators Own Ideas" "Lessig's Rebuttal to Epstein")

"The user is not broken" - K. Schneider

Virtual libraries

"The World is Spiky" (Oct 2005, Atlantic Monthly)

We reviewed 555.

"What is a Library Anymore, Anyway" (available through First Monday)

We plan on talking about management, collection development, and related topics next time.

TONIGHT's meeting by JohnMichaelJohnMichael, 29 May 2008 20:39

Hi,

I don't know if I missed an e-mail or something, but I seemed to be the only person who arrived at the Info Commons last Thursday (5/22) to meet for a study session. I stayed there until 6:45 pm, when no one still showed up.

Please let me know if there are plans to meet this Thursday (5/29). I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Ben
