Don't Go Into the Library

In honor of National Library Week and AACPL's Library Giving Day, we invite you to enjoy this lovely 1952 poem by Alberto Rios.

Repost from Janet Forde
During Saint Lucia’s celebration of National Library Week it is fitting that we remember Mrs May Prescod, a Trinidadian who worked to rebuild library services in St Lucia after the Castries fire destroyed the Central collection.
She worked with Rosamund Taylor,Jean Gajadhar,Mary Gustave , Hogarth Belizaire , Susie Simmons Pearl Prospere, and Bertha Zepherian but many others like Frances Niles and A Alcide came in after to grow and expand library service in Castries
Let’s call out those who worked in the branches and served generations of Saint Lucians starting out with
Soufriere’s Humilta La Porte and Catherine Prospere

The Policy Implications of Decentralized Finance (DeFi)
Decentralized Finance or ‘DeFi’ is the latest development in the crypto-asset space, and claims to replicate the traditional financial system in an open, decentralized, permissionless and autonomous way. The growing application of DeFi and its increasing interconnectedness with traditional markets presents an urgent challenge for policy makers. This report provides an explanation of DeFi and its applications and then describes the evolution of DeFi markets to date. It explores the benefits and risks of DeFi and the DeFi/CeFi intersection and puts forward policy considerations.

Call for examples for the OECD Citizen Participation Guidelines
The OECD is seeking citizen participation examples to enrich the forthcoming Citizen Participation Guidelines. In recent years governments have been experimenting with new ways of involving citizens in decision making. Citizens' juries, participatory budgets, hackathons, in-person and on-line public consultations and a constellation of other methods were tested, implemented, learned from. Now we are inviting you to share examples of citizen participation that you have implemented or know about and found particularly interesting. They will be used to inform and illustrate the OECD Citizen Participation Guidelines. The deadline is March 1.

Dr. Alma Theodora Jordan was a former Campus/University Librarian at The UWI St. Augustine Campus and founding member of ACURIL. May she rest in peace

#News The UWI community mourns loss of former Campus and University Librarian Dr Alma Jordan

The St. Augustine Campus of The University of the West Indies mourns the passing of Dr Alma Jordan, Campus Librarian of its main library from 1960 to 1989, serving also as University Librarian from 1982 to her retirement in 1989. Indeed, as part of this Campus’s 50th Anniversary celebrations in 2010, the main library was renamed the Alma Jordan Library in her honour and in recognition of her contributions to this country and the region.

Dr Jordan graduated with honours with a BA in Spanish from London University and held a Doctor-ate in Library Science from Columbia University. She wrote extensively on Caribbean librarianship and recommended archival work for The UWI campuses. She also served as part of a body responsible for formulating plans for the creation of the National Library and Information System Authority (NALIS) and was a foundation member of the national library association and first president (1969-70) of the Association of Caribbean University Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL).
In 1989, the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago presented her with the Humming-bird Medal (Gold).

These foundations are then given practical grounding in the work of creating bibliographic descriptions, the process of subject analysis, and summarizing content utilizing classification. Standards such as MARC bibliographic and authority formats, Library of Congress Subject Headings and Library of Congress Classification are discussed. The shift in focus from format-based cataloging to entity-relationship model cataloging is taken from the FRBR foundation to the RDA practical application, with a final look at RDF triples and BIBFRAME. In all areas, the value of standards is illustrated and discussed. There is a heavy reliance on examples from actual practice throughout the course content.
