    Organizing and Indexing Photo Collections

    Historical photo archives or collections can put an organization on the map and make it into a destination for patrons. Conversely, if not well organized and indexed, collections and archives can languish in obscurity and occupy valuable space and resources with no tangible return for the organization. The Milwaukee Public Library’s (MPL) Historic Photo Archives (HPA) contain around thirty thousand historic images; of those images, most are located in the Historic Photo Collection, one of the archives’ 45 individual collections. The HPA has evolved over the decades. Various reference librarians have been assigned the archives, and the rotation of responsible parties has left its mark. The challenge created by having many individuals with different backgrounds, priorities, areas of interest, and time to devote to the maintenance of the collection has been mitigated by a strong collection development policy

    Work is one important aspect of inclusion for people with intellectual disability. Success at work and inclusion in the culture of the workplace is a crucial step towards community membership. This research explored the potential of workplace culture analysis for identifying inclusive characteristics of New Zealand workplaces where people with intellectual disability were employed. Eight different workplaces were surveyed and patterns and variations in job entry, orientation and training, company policies, job design, custom and practice, and social opportunities were examined. Several factors influencing inclusion of employees in the workplace culture were identified, e.g. full-time vs. part-time, level of employment support, limiting expectations, employer and co-worker attitudes. The implications of results for tertiary transition programmes and further research are discussed

    Harnessing the cognitive surplus of the nation: new opportunities for libraries in a time of change. The 2012 Jean Arnot Memorial Fellowship Essay.

    Get PDF
    This essay is the winner of the 2012 Jean Arnot Memorial Fellowship. The essay draws on Rose Holley's experience of managing innovative library services that engage crowds such as The Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program and Trove, and her ongoing research into library, archive and museum crowdsourcing projects. This experience and knowledge has been put into the context of Jean Arnot’s values and visions for Australian libraries. Jean Arnot, the distinguished Australian librarian, described her vision for an innovative library service over sixty years ago. Rose suggests how some of her goals are now being achieved through use of the internet and digital technologies, and how we can build on these to ensure that libraries remain valued and relevant by harnessing the cognitive surplus of the nation they serve, and by crowdsourcing
