Understanding the development of a research field is challenging but critical for a wide variety of professions and stakeholders. While one may find philosophical, sociological, historical accounts of the evolution of a field of research and interdisciplinary dynamics, delineating and communicating the state of the art of a research field remains to be one of the major bottlenecks in problem-solving and decision-making processes. In this talk, I will introduce how relevant theories from social sciences can be utilized in the design and application of an interactive visual analytic tool, CiteSpace, for computational and explanatory studies of research. I will demonstrate the theoretical and practical values of the types of visual analytic processes by presenting the findings of a few exemplar case studies.
This paper reviews various new approaches to assessing personality. These were divided into five areas: Big data; Wearable technology, Gamification, Video-Resumes and Automated Personality Testing. These were briefly described and the evidence for their psychometric properties considered. At this stage there is more absence of evidence, than evidence of absence, for their validity. There is limited research on these methods which may offer new and improved ways of assessing personality.
The seven papers will be presented in this session (15 minutes per presentation)
It is no longer news that advancement in technology has changed and is still changing the library landscape across the globe. Today, advanced technologies especially those ushered in by the Fourth Industrial Revolution such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotic technology, cloud computing, big data, internet of things, IoT, virtual and augmented reality, and others have all changed the way libraries operate. Traditional library tasks such as cataloging, circulation, and collection development, which were performed manually a few decades ago, have now been automated to a greater extent. The way user services are being rendered has also changed compared to what obtained in the past. These changes seem to be more pronounced in developed nations such as the US, UK, Australia, and some other countries in Europe. In those nations, the changes seem to be prominent, well pronounced, and adequately communicated in form of research reports. However, much of the transformation taking place in Africa librarianship seem not to be well known and communicated to the outside world. Examining the transformation taking place in the African Library landscape brought by advanced technology is considered to be of interest to the outside world. In light of this, this presentation seeks to take a glimpse into what is happening in African librarianship by way of examining the changes that have taken place, the changes that are currently taking place, and then project into the likelihood of the changes that will occur in the future. The presentation will discuss the technology that libraries in Africa have used in the past, the ones currently being used, and the ones that will dominate the scene in times to come. The presentation will also delve into the past by looking at the way library services were rendered, the technologies used, and compare to the present to be able to project into the future. Based on the findings of the study, recommendations will be made on how libraries in African can adequately compete and match up with their counterpart in the developed nations.
