Abstract

This broadband project, the TransAct Trial, was the concept of the ACT Electricity and Water Authority Corporation (ACTEW). As a result of this trial, the ACT Department of Urban Services, the ACT Public Library and Information Service (ACTLIS) - that is one of the Department’s Agencies - and the University of Canberra, have been closely involved in the development of a number of related Internet sites, including an interactive site developed by youth in Aranda. The TransAct Trial has enabled ACTLIS to test new technologies for delivering information services and to explore different ways of working with sectors of the ACT community. Models have been established for ongoing links with education and with youth which can be applied to other community agencies and organisations. Outcomes for ACTLIS have been a cohesive website (which now requires redevelopment) and the need to develop marketing strategies to ensure that electronic services offered by ACTLIS are utilised to the maximum.

VALA Peer Reviewed Paper

Abstract

In recent years there has been a focus on new methods of course delivery, flexible delivery and teaching using the World Wide Web (WWW). Traditional training skills and levels of interaction are being downplayed with the focus shifting towards the value and adaptability of the technology. This paper seeks to explore some of the key elements in assessing whether we have become overwhelmed with the promise of using the WWW for the development and delivery of courses at the expense of client satisfaction, sound educational principles and adding value to the educational and training arena. Should training programs in information literacy and in the use of information resources be "cyber-training" programs or be added to a traditional face-to-face training program?

Abstract

This paper reports the results of a survey which aimed to examine the extent to which the information architecture (IA) of Australian library web sites is developed with reference to documented methods and guidelines. It was found that a majority of libraries used either in-house or external documents, or both, but that the nature of these documents varied greatly. The extent of libraries' control over their own web sites also varied very widely. Although documentation was considered useful in some ways, respondents were more interested in developing the necessary IA skills and competencies than in standardisation.

Abstract

Higher education institutions have traditionally purchased separate systems to manage library services and to manage content for online learning. These systems are often procured separately and managed by units within the organisation with somewhat different operational objectives and business processes. This paper explores the feasibility of extending the brief for a new ILMS by including requirements for integrated management and access to all ‘learning resources’ irrespective of origin and format and describes how the institutional context as much as the technical options may influence the success of the system selection process.
