The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.
Preparing for Future Staffing Requirements: The changing landscape calls for new skill sets for both new professionals entering the field and seasoned catalogers. A culture shift is needed, from pride in production alone to valuing opportunities to learn, explore, and try new approaches to metadata work. The Focus Group identified learning opportunities, new tools and desired skills, approaches to self-education, and ways to address staff turnover.
when filtering my own channel via a text query, I would like to have access to the context menu on filtered blocks to "remove connection". this would enable me to quickly check for duplicates by searching for their title and removing any duplicate blocks.
We have already reviewed how the graphical user interface taught users how to interact with and utilize its capabilities. Although voice-first computers seemed quite appealing in allowing for a hands-free interaction, they lost the cornerstone of what makes a GUI great.
Voice-only computers lost the ability to passively show users how to use them and this is what explains the data I pointed out above — people simply can't remember how to use voice computers.
Responsible operations demand the integration of contextual knowledge. Making ready use of contextual knowledge depends in part on the availability of generous tools. It is often the case that emerging technologies, the methods they enact, and the variety of programming languages they make use of present a steep learning curve for nonexperts. Use of the technology tends to get siloed to a role in a particular part of the library, and the potential for leveraging diverse forms of expertise present across an organization are lost. Generous tools are designed and documented in such a way that they make it possible for users of varying skill levels to contribute to the improvement and/or use of algorithmic methods. Per Scott Weingart’s recommendation, the library community may benefit from seeking out human computer interaction experts to help design generous tools (e.g., human-in-the-loop systems, exploratory visualization environments, GUI-based [graphical user interface] analytics platforms, semiautomated AI model development). These tools could follow in the spirit of Gen (a noviceoriented programming language developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Zooniverse, and iNaturalist (platforms that can facilitate crowdsourced classification), and resources like those developed by Matthew Reidsma that help librarians audit the product of library discovery systems.
With mobile app installed, I'd like to have the possibility to add the URL of my current mobile browser tab to a channel via the browser's sharing context menu, just like I can share a URL to other apps (like Slack or Pocket). This would save me from having to copy the URL, switch to the app, paste the URL, etc...
Consider the typical trajectory of Emacs power users. They start by downloading Emacs, and learning enough of it for their editing needs. At some point, they want to do some basic customization. Then some less basic customization, which is likely to be the first contact with Emacs Lisp, even if it’s only a copy-paste of a small function found on the Emacs Stack Exchange. With the confidence gained from such minor tweaking, they move on to more ambitious tasks. Some end up developing and maintaining major Emacs Lisp packages, but most don’t, and that’s perfectly fine.
