ABSTRACT

The authors speculate on the essence of electronic collection studies as the key component of library e-science. They offer and substantiate the definitions of electronic document and electronic document in library collection. The ways to acquire e-documents to the libraries are discussed. One of the goals of e-collection studies is to adapt traditional concepts for electronic documents acquired by modern libraries;to describe key processes of e-collection development and use, namely cataloguing, systematization, efficient arrangement in the library virtual space, e-document relegation from the collections, etc. The book market (including the market of audio books) transformations in the context of digitalization and corresponding provisions of e-collection studies are characterized, with the special attention given to the COVID-19 experiences. The role of e-documents within the mixed library and information infrastructure is reviewed: the need for theoretical insights into the problem is emphasized. The authors conclude that e-documents should be studied within the framework of electronic collection studies, the component of library e-science.

ABSTRACT

The approach to assess library performance was approbated;the results are discussed. The proposed instruments enable to calculate several indicators of social, technological, economic and organizational efficiency as well as summary efficiency index. This method enables to define whether the library goals are achieved, to relate the results to invested resources, to evaluate process satisfaction degree. The authors suggest alternative indicators for normal and extreme circumstances (e. g. during COVID-19 pandemic). The assessment is based on the indicators included into 6-NK statistical standard (Public Library Report) as well as the indicators used in plans, reports, analytical reviews to be submitted to founders, central libraries, or regional authorities. The methods require no extra information or special research. Its stage-by-stage description makes them replicable, which is evidenced by approbation results presented by many libraries. The element index enables to measure the indicators, to analyze and compare them, and to make informed managerial, strategic and political decisions. The universal method can be applied irrespective of library type, status, and departmental subordination.

ABSTRACT

COVID-19 has changed the behavior of consumers of all services, including public library readers, related to the unavailability of services during lockdown periods and other restrictions precluding physical presence in the library. The aim of this case study was to learn what effects the COVID-19 pandemic had on e-book readers and their behavior. This article presents the results of the analysis of data from empirical surveys undertaken in August 2019 and August 2020 in the Municipal Library in Prague (Czech Republic). Findings revealed that readers do not prefer e-books due to the pandemic situation. Paper book preferences still prevail. The results show that the pandemic slightly adjusted the preference of book genres. The pandemic did not change readers’ willingness to pay for library services but rather forced public libraries to adjust their service offerings and distribution channels.

ABSTRACT

Mattern critiques the unquestioning embrace of dashboards as a tool of governance, highlighting inequalities perpetuated by approaches to data capture and creation that pursue "sanitized, decontextualized, and necessarily partial" quantitative representations of life. To what extent do data-driven decisions lead library policy and practice and how clear-eyed are we on how the data are captured, synthesized, and presented? Mattern also presents libraries as social infrastructure, spaces where the public can productively engage with city governance to access Wi-Fi, career services, social services, and even public health services, as seen during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

ABSTRACT

Purpose>During the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to prevent the spread of disease, the National Library of Indonesia Cataloging Department adopted remote working. There is a need to examine the productivity of remote cataloging as this form of cataloging becomes more prevalent.Design/methodology/approach>The study was conducted using a mixed methods approach. The authors analyzed data to assess cataloging librarians' productivity based on system logs. Then, the authors interviewed librarians to understand librarians' perspectives concerning productivity and remote cataloging, and also to seek insights into factors that may affect productivity while working remotely.Findings>The analysis found higher productivity in terms of quantity of cataloging. Librarians' productivity during remote cataloging is not statistically related to individual factors of age, years of experience, or gender. The in-depth interviews found that other factors may hinder the quality and quantity of the remote cataloging, including the working environment, infrastructure, and lack of policies on remote working.Research limitations/implications>The findings were based on a study conducted in the National Library of Indonesia, which may not apply to libraries with different infrastructures or existing policies in remote cataloging. However, the authors identified numerous factors that could be related to remote cataloging productivity. More work needs to be done to identify these factors that impact productivity by conducting further surveys.Practical implications>The research provides evidence showing the productivity of cataloging can be higher in remote working mode. The study provides insights for library managers to decide whether to implement remote cataloging and what additional perspectives could be considered for the better implementation of remote cataloging.Originality/value>The gap in the literature about remote cataloging and productivity has been bridged.

ABSTRACT

59 academic technical services librarians were surveyed about the state of their approval plans in the wake of the collections and acquisitions challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. 40 responded, with a majority indicating a move away from print auto-shipments and toward e-preferred collection models. Libraries that continued to receive print auto-shipments tended to favor narrow, targeted profiles, such as faculty publications, international plans, best-sellers and award winners. Every response qualified as a movement away from print auto-shipments as an acquisitions strategy, even in cases where approval plans were maintained or, in one case, initiated for the first time.

ABSTRACT

Since the first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in China, social and physical distancing has been promoted worldwide as an effective community mitigation strategy. However, our understanding remains limited regarding how students would resume their activities and use of libraries when the restrictions to manage the spread of coronavirus were lifted. Understanding students' seating behaviour in libraries is required to guarantee that the libraries meet the needs and preferences of students and promote students' health and well-being and satisfaction with the library. This paper aims to explore the changes in the use of study spaces before and after the pandemic. Occupancy data from the UCL Bartlett Library collected at 10-min intervals from motion sensors located underneath desks was used to assess the occupancy within the library and which was then compared to characteristics of the space. This study revealed that the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted students' use of the library as well as how much time they spent there. While seats with a good combination of daylight, outdoor view and privacy were in most demand before the pandemic, distance from other students seems to be the priority after the pandemic. Students' seating preferences appear to be also influenced by the position of desk dividers after COVID-19. Future research should focus on assessing and proposing new seating arrangements and developing strategies to promote students' satisfaction with libraries in response to changes in students' seating behaviours.

ABSTRACT

This study reports on a series of focus groups of UK public library users to understand how the forced closure of UK libraries caused by the COVID pandemic and the increased use of replacement digital services affected their library use. We specifically focus on digital exclusion and whether this increased as the result of physical library services being inaccessible. We show that although digital exclusion did increase as the result of library closures, digital exclusion was not the best way to characterise our participants' experiences and digital choices was a more suitable concept. We show how public library users adapted to library closures, how they coped with these closures, and how they intend to use library services in the future. Our participants reported different patterns of use of digital and physical library services, had different experiences of these two modes of library service, and described their value in different terms. We explore what they valued in physical and digital services and show how simple arguments that digital services can replace physical ones do not match the experiences or wishes of those who use these services.

ABSTRACT

As fake news and other disinformation are spread primarily online and erode trust in experts and institutions, they challenge the role of librarians as information gatekeepers. Experts have advocated for libraries to educate the public to resist misinformation, yet libraries cannot assume sole responsibility for information literacy work. In this chapter, the authors explore several successful information literacy programs in Ukraine, whose fake news problems made global headlines in 2014, when the Russian annexation of Crimea was accompanied by a flood of crude but effective disinformation. The authors look particularly at the Learn to Discern programs established by the international non-profit organization IREX to foster information literacy using techniques grounded in interdisciplinary expertise and carefully evaluated through pilot studies and follow-up evaluations. These programs train instructors through workshops and provide them with materials. In the first program, aimed at the general public, many of the instructors were librarians, and library facilities were heavily used to deliver the public training. In the second program, information literacy was integrated into the public school curriculum and thousands of teachers were trained to deliver expertly designed materials for particular grade levels and subjects. The authors also consider the special challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, both as a source for new forms of misinformation and as a disruptor of training previously delivered in tightly packed libraries and classrooms. These Ukrainian programs demonstrate the potential for fighting fake news and other misinformation on a scale far beyond what could be accomplished by individual libraries acting alone.

ABSTRACT

E-learning (electronic learning) is the process of teaching, learning and evaluation, through the internet and technology, that is, it is focused on learning methods, the expansion and connection of information, which in the use of a computer as an artifact in the learning process. The purpose of this review was to identify studies that explore e-learning technologies and their impact on the teaching and assessment process of Human Anatomy, and to assess the quality of published research. A systematic review of the literature was carried out in the databases Pudmed (Medline), Ovid (Cochrane Central), Ovid (Medline), Scopus, Web of science (clarivate) and Science Di rect, including the keywords: Examination, Teaching, COVID-19 medical education, COVID-19, Medical student exams, Anatomy, Students, Medical. Research quality was assessed using the Medical Education Research Study Quality (MERSQI) instrument. In total, 202 research articles were found, and when applying the inclusion and exclusion criteria, a total of 24 articles were identified;After reading the articles, four investigations were chosen that met the synthesis criteria in this review. In general, the results showed a favorable impact of e-learning technologies since it facilitated access, flexibility and learning pace for each student, it also promoted new forms of teaching and evaluation in the discipline of Human Anatomy in medical students. during the Covid-19 pandemic. Thus, medical education for basic science in human anatomy indicates a transition from blended face-to-face and virtual learning to a blended learning model (b-learning).

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) infection has been a global pandemic since late 2019. Even though most COVID-19 patients recover fully from the disease, approximately 5–10% experience prolonged symptoms for several months following the acute COVID-19 phase, defined as long COVID-19 syndrome. Most of the sequelae are respiratory sequelae. Rehabilitation therapy is needed to overcome their respiratory sequelae and to improve their functional capacity. AIM: This systematic review discusses rehabilitation therapy for long COVID-19 syndrome with respiratory sequelae. METHODS: Using PubMed and Cochrane library, a systematic review was conducted based on PRISMA guidelines. The subject of this research was long COVID syndrome with respiratory sequelae. For rehabilitation therapy for long COVID-19 patients with respiratory sequelae, inclusion criteria were studied. Exclusion criteria were letters to the editor, editorial or commentary reports, and studies not available in full-text and not in English or Bahasa. RESULTS: Nine studies are included in this systematic review comprising two consensus statements or recommendations, one cohort retrospective study, two case studies or case reports, one review, and three experimental studies. The recommended rehabilitation program pathway using a three-tier model depends on the severity of the disease. Several rehabilitation exercises for long COVID patients with respiratory sequelae include cardiorespiratory exercise, breathing exercise, therapeutic exercise, and even traditional Chinese fitness models such as Liuzijue exercise. CONCLUSION: Rehabilitation therapy exercise helps to improve the breathing effort, improving dyspnea, and respiratory muscle strength in long COVID patients with respiratory sequelae.

ABSTRACT

SESSION TITLE: Problems in the Pleura Case Posters 2 SESSION TYPE: Case Report Posters PRESENTED ON: 10/17/2022 12:15 pm - 01:15 pm INTRODUCTION: Hematologic malignancies can often be complicated by pleural effusion due to leukemic infiltration of the pleura (1). Long term management of resulting chronic plural effusion can be complicated when there is evidence of trapped lung. Subsequent infection may lead to development of chronic empyema which can be difficult to manage in chronically ill patients (2). CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old male with history of chronic myeloid leukemia status post stem cell transplant was admitted with dyspnea and cough. Computed tomography (CT) chest imaging revealed increased volume loss on the left with new air fluid level in a chronic left pleural effusion. (Image 1) Patient's history was significant for chronic left pleural effusion, which was first identified in 2015 and found to be a malignant effusion with evidence of leukemia involvement. Repeat imaging in 2018 (Image 2) revealed continued chronic pleural effusion. Patient was admitted in August 2021 with COVID-19 pneumonia and CT Chest showed chronic loculated left sided pleural effusion. Patient elected to continue to monitor the chronic effusion, which was completed as outpatient every 4 to 6 weeks (Image 3). He remained clinically stable until the presentation to a hospital in January 2022. The chronic empyema was initially managed with tube thoracostomy, intrapleural fibrinolytics and antibiotics. Cultures were significant for Moraxella catarrhalis and Streptococcus pneumoniae. He was determined to be a poor surgical candidate for decortication and treatment with empyema tube was initiated. The empyema tube was incrementally withdrawn as an outpatient and subsequently removed with good clinical recovery. DISCUSSION: Chronic empyema is characterized by thickened parietal and visceral pleura which limits the ability of the lung to re-expand. Surgical management with decortication is the definitive management, however, in poor surgical candidates, management becomes more complicated. Open pleural drainage with an open pleural window can be considered. An alternative option converts tube thoracostomy to open pleural drainage, as was utilized in this patient (2). While comparison of surgical vs non-surgical management of empyema suggests similar mortality (3), non-surgical management of chronic empyema needs more investigation to determine the optimal treatment modality. CONCLUSIONS: Empyema remains a difficult condition to manage. Treatment modalities of chronic empyema are limited in those patients who remain poor surgical candidates.

ABSTRACT

SESSION TITLE: Acute COVID-19 and Beyond: from Hospital to Homebound SESSION TYPE: Original Investigations PRESENTED ON: 10/18/2022 02:45 pm - 03:45 pm PURPOSE: To date, only dexamethasone, tocilizumab, and casirivimab/imdevimab have been shown to reduce mortality in COVID-19 patients. Baricitinib is a selective Janus kinase 1/2 inhibitor with known anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties. We sought to perform a meta-analysis of RCTs assessing the role of baricitinib in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 disease. METHODS: Electronic databases such as MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Central were searched till March 20, 2022, for randomized controlled trials evaluating the efficacy of baricitinib in hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The outcomes assessed were 28-day mortality, progression to respiratory failure needing positive pressure ventilation or death, progression to mechanical ventilation or ECMO, duration of hospitalization and time to discharge. RESULTS: Four studies (with 10,815 patients) were included in the analysis. In total, 5,477 patients received baricitinib, and 5,338 patients received standard care. Pooled analysis showed a significantly decreased risk of 28-day mortality (OR 0.85, 95% CI 0.76-0.96, p=0.006) and progression to invasive mechanical ventilation or ECMO (OR 0.80, 95% CI 0.69-0.94, p=0.005) in the baricitinib arm compared to standard therapy or placebo. In addition, there was a significant reduction in duration of hospitalization (MD -1.43, 95% CI -2.46, -0.40, p=0.007) and time to recovery (MD -0.88, 95% CI -1.34, -0.41, p=0.0002). CONCLUSIONS: Baricitinib improved the patient-centric outcomes of mortality and progression to severe disease i.e., need for invasive mechanical ventilation, in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 disease compared with standard therapy alone. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Baricitinib may be used in conjunction with standard of care treatments to improve morbidity and mortality in hospitalized COVID-19 patients.

ABSTRACT

The field of antibody development is under pressure to meet rising demands for speed, cost-effectiveness, efficacy, reliability, and large-scale production. It is costly and time-consuming to immunize animals and build a single-domain antibody (sdAb) library for each target. Using the variable domain (VHH) of heavy-chain only antibodies (HcAbs) derived from blood samples of 75 non-immunized camelid animals (51 alpacas, 13 llamas, 11 Bactrian camels), and spleens from two Bactrian camels, a naïve sdAb library with extensive megadiversity and reusability was constructed. The library was evaluated using next-generation DNA sequencing (NGS) and was found to contain hundreds of billions of unique clones. To confirm the availability of target-specific VHHs, a naive library was screened for a variety of targets. At least two VHH candidates were extracted for each target using a 20-day selection pipeline. Some binders had ultrahigh potencies, with binding affinities in the nanomolar range. This naïve library, in particular, offers the possibility of acquiring unique antibodies targeting antigens of interest with low feasible dissociation constant (kD) without the time, effort, and price associated in producing antibodies in animals via antigen injection. Overall, the study shows that the megadiverse naïve library provides a rapid, adaptable, and easy platform for antibody creation, emphasizing its therapeutic and diagnostic implications.

ABSTRACT

A descriptive study with a quantitative approach and cross-sectional design, whose purpose was to determine the perception and self-perception of a teacher group's vocal conditions from an Official Educational Institution from the Department of Sucre in Colombia. The population consisted of 80 teachers aged between 25 and 70 years, to whom the evaluative guidelines survey for organizational factors and vocal hygiene, vocal fatigue self-perception. It starts from A and B, adapted by López and Yévenez (2018) was applied. ) and the RASAT perceptual evaluation scale proposed by Rebelo and Pontes (2002). The Epi Info 7.1.5.2 statistical package was used for data coding. The results showed an average workload of 28.72 hours per week in organizational factors terms. With a high student rate in the classroom. It oscillates in a range of 27 to 40 students. This situation generates a greater exposure time due to the prolonged use of the voice, adding to this a higher voice volume, causing greater muscular and vocal overload. Additionally, the findings in the medical history refer more frequently to gastroesophageal reflux and upper respiratory tract diseases of allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, and laryngopharyngitis which can increase vocal signs and symptoms. Regarding the behavior that contributes to tissue injuries in the larynx, a high percentage was evidenced in the habit of drinking coffee and sudden changes in temperature. As well, the students report being exposed to noisy environments and speaking in an inappropriate voice tone. In the description of vocal fatigue self-perception, they feel improvement in their voice after having rested and consider that in the presence of hoarseness their voice improves with rest. In addition, they self-perceive discomfort in the neck when speaking, weak voice, sore throat, vocal effort, hoarse voice, and poor projection due to the use of the mask. In relation to vocal condition perception, they show greater affectation in the moderate category in the parameters of hoarseness, roughness, and tension, after prolonged masks use. In conclusion, the use of the mask denotes changes in the vocal quality of those who wear it, which in the long term could generate vocal dysfunctions or dysphonia.

ABSTRACT

March 2020 saw South Africa go through its first 21-day lockdown, and fear gripped the country as a new virus identified as COVID-19 caused a devastating impact throughout the world. During this time, history played the devils advocate by reminding society of the previous flu known as the 1919 Spanish flu, which saw millions of people succumb to its prowess. To a large extent, social media enabled a confused and saddened society to be connected. Besides essential services, all other sectors of the economy were instantly shut down. Social media became societys lifeline during COVID-19 as it abled them to remain connected. One could say that social media became societys life support in these uncertain times. A forwarded message does not declare the original sender nor restricts who the next receiver could be. Businesses were also able to function by using social media to the point that people could now buy everything virtually from a store without going to a store. Social media could not replace all essential functions, but it helped provide a sustainable bridge for postlockdown. Certain sectors of the economy, which dealt with production etc., experienced the full brunt of the lockdown. Artisans and artists lost a platform to showcase their talent and display their trade, leading to a loss of income. Education Institutions had some forms of online platforms which were used;however, distance learning was implemented overnight through the use of online mediums. While Moodle is a required platform used by many higher education institutions, other online platforms are also used. This paper describes the use of WhatsApp as an online medium providing higher education institutions with a lifeline by keeping them connected during COVID-19. For this paper, the author uses the Shannon and Weaver Model of Communication which looks at the sender and receiver and the medium used to disseminate information. The senders and receivers are students, lecturers, administration staff, and management. Content analyses were used as part of the research methodology for this paper.

ABSTRACT

Computing tools applied in power systems are increasingly used to solve complex optimization problems. Power system operations research has become essential for graduate and final-year undergraduate students who want to improve their knowledge in this area. This study proposes a solution for a group of boilers and turbines to minimize operating costs using GUSEK software. The execution of the model allows us to obtain the optimal solution with the operational constraints involved and the possibility of improving with metaheuristic algorithms.
