Starting from its definitions, we will try to show how, at the heart of the <em>cabreo</em> representation, there is a complex system of relationships: the patronage, the drafters, the subscribers, and the apparatuses are all elements that add information to the picture. Taking a few significant examples from the documentary heritage of the Archivio di Stato di Bologna, we will try to show how the examination of the graphic artefacts allows us to reconstruct the field of action of public institutions, private individuals and religious corporations, if analysed in its reference framework.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> 2023-05-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Elena Gonnelli Neurodegenerative clinical records analyzer: detection of recurrent patterns within clinical records towards the identification of typical signs of neurodegenerative disease history 2023-05-15T15:31:46+00:00 Erika Pasceri Mérième Bouhandi Claudia Lanza Anna Perri Valentina Laganà Raffaele Maletta Raffaele Di Lorenzo Amalia C. Bruni <p>When treating structured health-system-related knowledge, the establishment of an over-dimension to guide the separation of entities becomes essential. This is consistent with the information retrieval processes aimed at defining a coherent and dynamic way – meaning by that the multilevel integration of medical textual inputs and computational interpretation – to replicate the flow of data inserted in the clinical records. This study presents a strategic technique to categorize the clinical entities related to patients affected by neurodegenerative diseases. After a pre-processing range of tasks over paper-based and handwritten medical records, and through subsequent machine learning and, more specifically, natural language processing operations over the digitized clinical records, the research activity provides a semantic support system to detect the main symptoms and locate them in the appropriate clusters. Finally, the supervision of the experts proved to be essential in the correspondence sequence configuration aimed at providing an automatic reading of the clinical records according to the clinical data that is needed to predict the detection of neurodegenerative disease symptoms.</p> 2023-05-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Erika Pasceri, Mérième Bouhandi, Claudia Lanza, Anna Perri, Valentina Laganà, Raffaele Maletta, Raffaele Di Lorenzo, Amalia C. Bruni "Resource not found": cultural institutions, interinstitutional cooperation and collaborative projects for web heritage preservation 2023-05-15T15:31:01+00:00 Chiara Storti <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Awareness of the need to preserve the Web heritage began to spread in the early 1990s, and the first Web archiving initiatives were launched at the National Library of Australia in 1993-1996. However, even today, especially in Italy, it is difficult to find contributions that address the topic of Web and Social media archiving from the perspective of process governance and its relationship with the laws and ethical issues. The purpose of this article is to investigate which actors are involved in these processes, what are the main criticalities or innovations compared to “traditional” cultural heritage management, providing concrete examples where possible.</span></p> 2023-05-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Chiara Storti Geodata. Spatial data in metadata creation 2023-05-15T15:31:11+00:00 Klaus Kempf <p style="font-weight: 400;">In recent years the demand for geoinformation and the use of GIS (Geographic Information System) applications by different subject areas has increased enormously. Libraries are attempting to respond to these needs through the provision of adequately developed spatio-temporal information, the digitisation of historical cartographic and geographic collections, and the enrichment of the metadata associated with digital resources with geodata that allow for proper georeferencing. After defining some key concepts related to the assignment of terrestrial geocoordinates in contemporary times, the article illustrates the potential of their use in the bibliographical domain with particular emphasis on their use by German-speaking libraries.</p> 2023-05-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Klaus Kempf Organizational climate in the Indonesian Public Library 2023-05-15T15:31:56+00:00 Dyah Srirahayu <p style="margin: 0cm; margin-bottom: .0001pt; text-align: justify;"><span style="color: #0e101a;">To maintain the existence of the organization and innovation ability of the organization, the work environment is something that needs to be considered for its development. This work environment can be a benchmark in seeing the performance of employees or the organization itself. For this reason, this research was conducted to see how the climate or work environment in public libraries in Indonesia. The method used is a qualitative approach with data collection through a Google forms questionnaire. The sample used is a public library librarian in Indonesia. The data analysis technique used is through frequency distribution to see respondents' answers tend to explain what kind of work environment climate. The result of this study is that the work environment in public libraries in Indonesia is included in the category of a highwork environment. In addition, the work environment of public libraries prioritizes aspects of innovation and flexibility. </span></p> 2023-05-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Dyah Srirahayu Books in a bubble. 2023-05-15T15:32:09+00:00 Ronald Snijder <p style="margin: 0cm; margin-bottom: .0001pt;">Open access infrastructure for books is becoming more mature, and it is being used by an increasing number of people. The growing importance of open access infrastructure leads to more interest in sustainability, governance and impact assessment. The assessment of the OAPEN Library – containing over 20,000 titles – fits within this trend. How well does the collections meets the needs of its stakeholders: readers, libraries, funders and publishers?</p> <p style="margin: 0cm; margin-bottom: .0001pt;">The composition of the collection is measured using subject and language. Both dissemination and the content-related aspects are paired to the number of publications. The average number of downloads per title is relatively similar for all subjects. However, the mean downloads of titles in English is roughly twice as much compared to German and the other languages. Combining subjects and languages shows that the dissemination of books in languages other than English is less predictable. This assessment has illustrated the composition of the collection and how its readers make use of it. The visualisation helped to tell a complicated story in a simple way; a powerful instrument to guide the further development of this open access infrastructure.</p> 2023-05-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Ronald Snijder ‘Definite cataloguing rules set down in writing’: Antonio Panizzi’s Rules and the catalogue’s manifestations 2023-05-15T15:31:23+00:00 Mauro Guerrini Stefano Gambari <p style="font-weight: 400;">The authors evaluate the symbolic value of the 91 rules published in 1841, as incipit of the first volume of the <em>Catalogue of printed books of the British Museum</em>, declaring its founding basis, and legitimizing the growing reputation of Antonio Panizzi at the same time. Monument of the élites and Trustees of the British Museum Library, the 91 were preceded by 73 rules, printed and distributed only among the cataloguers of the library in March 1839. The essay explains the existence of a normative stratification and evolution of the rules (oral tradition, limited circulation, revision and wider diffusion) and therefore the need for an archeology of knowledge’s approach. The novelties of the first cataloging code reside in the passage from an empirical to a conscious approach to the functions of the catalogue, while the printing of the catalogue is considered by Panizzi an antieconomical manifestation. The catalogue had not yet found its expressive paradigm, consolidated only today in the format of an open digital work, constantly updated.</p> 2023-05-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mauro Guerrini, Stefano Gambari 73 vs. 91: drafting a code for new alphabetical catalog of the British Museum 2023-05-15T15:31:34+00:00 Franco Neri <p lang="en-US" align="JUSTIFY">The paper, starting from the draft of 73 Rules Museum proposed by Panizzi to the Trustees in March 1839, aims at bringing out Panizzi’s underlying design for the new alphabetical catalog of the British Museum. Two temporal perspectives are crossed in contextualizing the process of drafting the rules: one of shorter duration, with a focus on items and actors of a confrontation that became intense between 1834 and 1839; and another, of a wider time span, aimed at reconstructing the conflicts of bibliographic cultures, the lines of tradition and the originality of Panizzi’s approach. At the bottom of the draft, there is an intellectual wager: although in the context constraints, to go beyond the boundaries of the English bibliographic traditions of the time by opening up to other bibliographic cultures. The most stimulating perspective comes from Audiffredi’s lesson mediated by a principle of exactitude which, if in the most immediate references has roots in the highest peaks of the contemporary French bibliographic culture (Barbier and Querard), draws its sap from the erudite tradition of the Italian eighteenth century (Tiraboschi). The paper discusses whether and what changes were made to this design in the passage from 73 to 91.</p> <pre class="western"> </pre> 2023-05-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Franco Neri
