IV Encuentro Internacional de Catalogadores

Desde el año 2003 mediante una serie de reuniones regionales en los diferentes continentes del mundo, la IFLA a través de la Sección de Catalogación ha propiciado la revisión y adaptación de los Principios Internacionales de Catalogación con la participación de expertos en la materia. Resultado de estas reuniones es la Declaración de los Principios Internacionales de Catalogación, junto a ella se han revisado otras normas internacionales para la descripción y sistematización de la información en cualquier soporte, como: las ISBDs, FRBR, FRANAR, etc.

Estas revisiones y planteamientos de las normas internacionales de la catalogación, fueron los antecedentes para que la Biblioteca Nacional del Perú, organizase en octubre del 2005 el I Encuentro Internacional de Catalogadores “Nuevas Tendencias en la Normalización y Sistematización de la Información” , con la finalidad de compartir con los profesionales de la información los conocimientos y experiencias sobre el tratamiento de la información.

En noviembre de 2007 la Biblioteca Nacional de Argentina dio continuidad a la difusión de los cambios de la catalogación en el ámbito internacional, al organizar el III Encuentro Internacional de Catalogadores “Tendencias Actuales en la Organización de la Información”.

En el presente año, del 22 al 24 de octubre, la Biblioteca Luis Angel Arango, la Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia, y la Revista Bibliotecas & Tecnologías de la Información, se complacen en organizar e invitar al IV Encuentro Internacional de Catalogadores “La Organización de la Información Frente a los Cambios de las Normas Internacionales”.

In the Digital Age, Government Information gets Lost

Countless federal records are being lost to posterity because federal employees, grappling with a staggering growth in electronic records, do not regularly preserve the documents they create on government computers, send by email, and post on the Web.

Federal agencies have rushed to embrace the internet and new information technology, but their record-keeping efforts lag far behind. Moreover, federal investigators have found widespread violations of federal record-keeping requirements...

GKP Through The Looking Glass Series: An Interview with UNESCO's Abdul Waheed Khan

Hoy compartimos la entrevista realizada por el Global Knowledge Partnership a Abdul Waheed Khan, Director General Auxiliar de la Oficina de Comunicaciones e Información de la UNESCO.

Through The Looking Glass is the GKP [Global Knowledge Partnership] Network’s active channel for soliciting insights from prominent individuals on knowledge and ICT for development.

GKP is pleased to share this exclusive interview with Abdul Waheed Khan in which he shares his insights and experiences on education and learning with focus on the role of ICT and its importance in empowering people for socio-economic development.

Mr. Khan is Assistant Director-General for Communications and Information (CI) of UNESCO, and is a member of the GKP Executive Committee. He has played an instrumental role in the knowledge society movement, particularly in open and distance learning. He was also President and Chief Executive Officer (Vice-Chancellor) of the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), one of the largest universities in the world with an enrollment exceeding 1.5 million students.

He was recently awarded the title 'Honorary Fellow' of the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) in recognition of his outstanding leadership in improving access to quality education and training using new information and communication technologies (ICT).

"If knowledge is the engine of development and technology is the fuel then without the fuel, the engine cannot run. Today the advancement of ICT allows us to look at a paradigm shift in teaching and learning," says Khan.

The Open Library Environment (OLE) Project

With support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Open Library Environment (OLE) Project will convene the academic library community in the design of an Open Library Management System built on Service Oriented Architecture. The project leaders are a multi-national group of libraries dedicated to thinking beyond the current model of an Integrated Library System and to designing a new system that is flexible, customizable and able to meet the changing and complex needs of modern, dynamic academic libraries. The end product will be a design document to inform open source library system development efforts, to guide future library system implementations, and to influence current Integrated Library System vendor products.

El Ubuntu y La quinta disciplina

Umuntu ngumuntu nagabantu A person is a person because of other people.

We are all part of the same system. Senge

En el 2006 al estar juntas en la clase de Administración de Servicios de la Información (CINF 6400) en la Escuela Graduada de Ciencias y Tecnologías de la Información, de la Universidad de Puerto Rico, y exponernos a La quinta disciplina (1990), y La quinta disciplina en la práctica (1999), de Peter Senge, estudioso del Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) y director del Centro de Aprendizaje Organizacional del MIT, tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer el concepto y la filiosofía del Ubuntu. Senge es precisamente uno de los exponentes del concepto de las comunidades que aprenden y los equipos de trabajo de alto rendimiento.

El pasado sábado, en un encuentro especial para la elaboración del portafolio profesionaldel estudiante egctiano, nos dio mucho gusto rememorar el tiempo en que conocimos la ética o ideología y los valores, que subyacen en la filosofía Ubuntu. Nos sentimos muy complacidas al compartir experiencias y observar que ya hemos integrado la filosofía con mucha más vehemencia en nuestro diario vivir. Compartimos algunas referencias para su información y marcos de referencia.

Ubuntu (ideology) Ubuntu, pronounced /ùbúntú/ (oo-BOON-too), is a sub-Saharan African ethic or ideology focusing on people's allegiances and relations with each other. The word has its origin in the Bantu languages of Southern Africa. Ubuntu is seen as a traditional African concept. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_(ideology)

Ubuntu Linux . Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system , freely available with both community and professional support. It is developed by a large community and we invite you to participate too!

The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Philosophy: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit.

These freedoms make Ubuntu fundamentally different from traditional proprietary software: not only are the tools you need available free of charge, you have the right to modify your software until it works the way you want it to. http://www.ubuntu.com

Umuntu ngumuntu nagabantu A person is a person because of other people. San Juan, Puerto Rico, November 16, 2006

Sawu bona, dear ACURIL Executive Council Members:

Sixteen years ago, prior to my trip to Suriname, I was introduced through Peter Senge's The fifth discipline (english version 1990), to the Ubuntu philosophy: the humanity that shares everything; the work of one with another, recognizing our individualities, but strategically together to reorient our paths in good faith, sharing our development, visualizing the highest value, and truly be. Ubuntu is value, beauty, life, love, respect for each human being.

In his book, Senge tells us that in the Natal Tribes in South Africa, the common greeting, equivalent to our 'hello ' is the expression of Sawu bona. Literally it means 'I see you'. Members of the tribe respond saying Sikkhona, 'I am here'. The existence of the community is determined from the recognition of each other. A person is as person because of other people. It is to recognize that one is, acknowledging that the others exist, inspite of the differences; but recognition of others is required if one is to be.

Between the six days past, from Wednesday to Monday, I crossed the Caribbean sea, twice. I crossed the Para River, twice. And I dipped into the Cola Creek, twice. I re-encountered myself again, and really understood the mission of my life. My aura and heart are restored, renovated and strengthened, with the ardent hope to continue practicing the Ubuntu as an integral part of my life in this Universe, and as long as Our Lord prescribes.

Who am I without you?
It is, as we discussed last night in the course of Administration of Information Services at the Graduate School of Information Sciences and Technologies of the University of Puerto Rico, an important framework, a challenge that will allow all of us who wish to develop and be part of a real Learning Community geared to humanize our relationships and to acceprt our interdependency, at various levels: personal, local, regional and global.

We are All ACURILEANS. Thank you to all and each one of you for being the way you are and for allowing me to be part.
