Information organization and cataloguing: the basis of information professionals education

Teaching and learning how to organize information effectively is a complex process both for educators and students. Cataloguing, which is defined as the process of organizing information by making bibliographic records, is the established procedure for achieving the goal mentioned. Learning the process of cataloguing can be difficult for students because they must become familiar with a large amount of new and complex contents.

On the importance of subject cataloguing and information about author afiliation in research libraries in COBISS.SI: the practice of indexing fields 6XX and subfield 70X8

The paper gives a new insight into the cataloguing practice in the COBISS.SI system, primarily regarding the necessity of bibliographic data for the management of bibliographies for researchers and research organisations. The paper evaluates two areas in the cataloguing practice, both of them optional but recommended.

Measuring the data quality of the bibliographic and authority records: case study of selected data elements for facet navigation and a displayed list of search results in COBISS+

As one of the segments of data quality analysis, theoretical and methodological approaches towards measuring the quality of data in bibliographic and authority records are presented. On the basis of professional literature review, the paper focuses on metrics, methods of measurement and results analysis.

A Set of Dimensions for Defining Data Quality in Bibliographic and Authority Records

A set of dimensions was developed for the purposes of quality analysis of data of bibliographic and authority records. The dimensions are qualitative descriptions of the types of data required in records. The set was developed by literature review and typology of errors, prepared by analyzing the recommendations given to librarians within quality control of daily bibliographic records production in COBIB.SI in 2017. The final set consists of 11 dimensions; it includes different data requirements within the following two basic categories of dimensions: quality of data value and quality of data representation.

Impact of open access in the time echo of publication – scientific publications in civil engineering

The open access as a new bussiness model in scientific communication can have an impact on citations of scientific publications, which has been researched a lot. This article presents an analysis of the echo time, which indicates the period from publishing an article to the time of its first citation. The analysis of the echo time was made in two phases.

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.
