Digital humanities: a whim or a (bibliographical) routine?

The article presents and analyses selected digital humanities projects and research initiatives in which libraries and other heritage institutions participate actively. These ambitious global projects supplement the existing knowledge on general and specific social and cultural-historical phenomena in the field of written cultural heritage with the help of web-based applications, tools and the collaborative location-independent research approach.

Systemization of work as a process

Modern systemization of work must become a process just as other organizational processes monitored by it. The purpose of our research was to create an SWP model (systemization of work as a process model) for knowledge-based business functions, which will be useful in practice and will make it possible to organise work on the basis of employee competencies and to form salaries on the basis of effective work time, and complexity and quality of work. During research we designed an SWP model and presented how to determine the complexity of tasks based on the required competencies, the criteria for determining the quality of work and the method of recording effective work.

Structural crisis of copyright, part 2

Avtorska pravica je vrsta intelektualne lastnine. Beseda “avtorska pravica” ni najbolj posrečen prevod izraza “copyright” (pravica do kopiranja izvoda), hkrati pa je tudi zavajajoča, kot da bi bil osrednja oseba avtor, ne pa imetnik pravice do kopiranja. Avtor je vsekakor imetnik moralne avtorske pravice, vendar je zelo redko tudi imetnik materialnih pravic. Moralne avtorske pravice nimajo tržne vrednosti in so s stališča družbenega sistema, v katerem šteje le denar, nepomembne. Stališče do avtorske pravice je odvisno tudi od poslovnega modela, kot sta npr. model “dolgega repa” ali model “zastonj”.

Information resources in the academic environment

Learning and knowledge acquisition with new forms of learning in the education process is based on one”s construction and deconstruction of meaning and the learner”s interaction with the world in a certain social and cultural environment. Each person is responsible for their own learning and how to manage it. As active learning is based on independent and active engagement in the teaching and learning process, finding and gathering information from various sources is an important part of any form of learning and teaching, particularly in the academic environment.
