Martin Bergaus investigated Service Delivery Platforms (SDP), focussing on their challenges and design aspects from a users perspective. Qualitatively he incorporated user experience in SDP research, developing a Grounded Theory (GT) then set out parameters needed when developing SDP investigations from a user viewpoint, before technical implementation. This study indicates usability factors for future SDP systems and contributes to the exploratory framework represented by the six GT categories. The results of this study benefit Information Systems (IS) experts developing SDP based ICT systems and those interested in practical applications of GT. Martin Bergaus, Ph.D., teaches as an associate lecturer at the University of Applied Science and Technical University in Vienna. His current research interests focuses on a qualitative research using Grounded Theory in the field of Information Systems. He has professional experiences within the ICT and company start up.

This volume explores the interpersonal, organizational, and technological enablers and barriers to information and intelligence sharing in multinational and multiagency military, humanitarian, and counterterrorism operations. To this end the contributions present case studies and other empirical research. UN and special operations headquarters are studied, along with multinational operations in Mali, Iraq, and Afghanistan by the UN and by U.S. Central Command. Perennial themes are the need for a holistic approach to information sharing-one that incorporates all the above enablers-and the importance of learning from experience, which should be the basis for operational planning. There is still considerable ground to be gained in enhancing the efficacy of information sharing in the context of defense and security, and the present book contributes to this goal.
Information Reuse and Integration addresses the efficient extension and creation of knowledge through the exploitation of Kolmogorov complexity in the extraction and application of domain symmetry. Knowledge, which seems to be novel, can more often than not be recast as the image of a sequence of transformations, which yield symmetric knowledge. When the size of those transformations and/or the length of that sequence of transforms exceeds the size of the image, then that image is said to be novel or random. It may also be that the new knowledge is random in that no such sequence of transforms, which produces it exists, or is at least known. The nine chapters comprising this volume incorporate symmetry, reuse, and integration as overt operational procedures or as operations built into the formal representations of data and operators employed. Either way, the aforementioned theoretical underpinnings of information reuse and integration are supported.
Metacognition is a set of active mental processes that allows users to monitor, regulate, and direct their personal cognitive strategies. Improving Student Information Search traces the impact of a tutorial on education graduate students problem-solving in online research databases. The tutorial centres on idea tactics developed by Bates that represent metacognitive strategies designed to improve information search outcomes. The first half of the book explores the role of metacognition in problem-solving, especially for education graduate students. It also discusses the use of metacognitive scaffolds for improving students problem-solving. The second half of the book presents the mixed method study, including the development of the tutorial, its impact on seven graduate students search behaviour and outcomes, and suggestions for adapting the tutorial for other users. provides metacognitive strategies to improve students information search outcomes incorporates tips to enhance database search skills in digital libraries includes seminal studies on information behaviour Barbara Blummer is the Reference Librarian for the Center for Computing Sciences in Bowie, Maryland, USA. She received a MLS from the University of Maryland in 1995, a masters degree in Communications/Digital Library from Johns Hopkins University in 2005, and an EdD from Towson University in Instructional Technology in 2012.

Information organization and dissemination is a key aspect of library and information science (LIS). It is taught in many Library Information Science university programs internationally. There are many books covering different areas of the subject separately, but there is dearth of books covering the whole gamut of the subject. This book covers the entire subject area and incorporates latest developments. Is an overview of the entire subject, covering all relevant areas Bullet points highlight key features in each chapter Written in accessible language, this book is aimed at a wide audience of LIS academics Professor Amitabha Chatterjee is a well-known name in the sphere of LIS education. He has taught the subject for over 40 years at bachelors degree level and over 35 years at masters degree level in different universities. He retired as Professor and Head of the Department of Library & Information Science, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India. Professor Chatterjee has edited six journals and has published seven books.
