Library and Information Science Dissertations and Theses

https://librarianshipstudies.blogspot.com/2016/07/dissertations-theses.html

#LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES

Reference sources for doctoral and master's dissertations and theses in Library and Information Science (LIS). General reference databases are listed first which is followed by the repositories and digital libraries of individual countries and universities. It also provides information on the online availability of electronic theses through centrally-maintained digital repositories which not only ensure easy access and archiving of doctoral theses but will also help in raising the standard and quality of research.

Theses and dissertations are known to be the rich and unique source of information, often the only source of research work that does not find its way into various publication channels. Theses and dissertations remain an untapped and under-utilized asset, leading to unnecessary duplication and repetition.

This entry Library and Information Science Dissertations and Theses in the Librarian's Reference Directory is expected to be the most comprehensive listing of sources of information on LIS dissertations and theses. It will enable LIS researchers with wider dissemination of information leading to improved referral and citation. It will not only bring more visibility and greater recognition to the researchers and their work but also help improve their rankings. It will be of immense help to the researchers in the task of literature search and review of related areas. Besides the literature reviews, the availability of comprehensive sources of LIS dissertations and thesis will give information on research studies already undertaken which will also help future researchers in identifying and formulating the topic of their research. It will eliminate the possibilities for researchers ending up pursuing a topic of research that has already been undertaken at the same or other universities. ... ... ...

University Libraries Collaborate on Web Discoverability Project

Stanford and Cornell are leading library efforts to help machines understand bibliographic information so it will be searchable on the Web.

The MAchine-Readable Cataloging (MARC) data format emerged nearly 40 years ago, and allows computers to share and use bibliographic information in library catalogs so patrons can find out more about the items libraries have in their collection. But outside of the library world, few organizations use the MARC data format, and external machines can't read it, making it dificult for people to find information about library holdings on the Web, said Philip E. Schreur, assistant university librarian for technical and access services at Stanford University's Green Library.
