OPAC Explorations and MARC Copy Cataloging Explore the following online public access catalogs (OPACs) and compare their basic features and their MARC records. (Specific steps in locating full MARC records are provided for each OPAC.) The public library websites are especially helpful for copy cataloging and downloading full MARC records. Consider for online public access catalog features: Ease of use Aesthetic qualities Breadth of features Access to full text Any outstanding special features Consider for MARC records: Accuracy of records Detail of records Able to download? Submit one 3 page comparison report that addresses all seven (7) of these OPACs and answer the questions: 1. Which catalog do you like best based on various features? 2. Which site would you most prefer for copy cataloging of MARC records and why? * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Catalogs (plus steps in accessing MARC records for review) The Library Corporation (TLC) used in school libraries: http://opac.aacps.org (Search for a record at LS2, then at left side see MARC record link.)

Using a company of your choice, determine the strategic business goals. Develop an IT strategy that aligns to the business goals. You can use the balanced scorecard approach or you can develop your own method for defining and aligning the IT strategy to the business strategy. You will need to cite at least two credible sources that will provide justification for your strategy or approach. Finding a company: If you are employed, it is best for you to use your current place of employment so you can practically apply the concepts in this assignment. Alternatively, you can use a nonprofit organization or any other organization you may have ties or access to. Your IT strategy should include: Business Goals and Objectives ?List at least two or three specific business goals for the next year or two with an explanation of the business rationale for the goal. ?List an objective for each business goal to explain what the company needs to do to achieve the goal. IT Strategies aligned with business goals and objectives ?List one or two IT strategies for each business goal ?These should be recommended strategies that would enable the business goals and objectives to be achieved. ?If your company already has IT strategies, you may provide an analysis and justification or new recommendation for each of the strategies Organizational Structure ?Describe the structure of the organization including: ?Organizational design ?Organizational culture ?Leadership factors (the types of leadership displayed within the company) ?Business processes ?Physical layout (i.e., how many offices, virtual offices, international locations) IT Infrastructure ?Describe the current IT infrastructure including: ?Hardware ?Software ?Network ?IT resources ?This should be a high-level overview IT Challenges ?Describe internal and external challenges IT faces in meeting the business needs ?Include social and/or ethical considerations Risks ?Describe risks IT might face when implementing change As you develop your strategy, you may want to consider the following: An effective IT strategy will enable the business operations, helping business leaders achieve business goals more efficiently and effectively. Focus on top priorities. Take the time to understand organizational issues, how they are related, and how they affect performance. Determine what will happen if nothing changes and where IT can have the greatest, positive impact. Identify how IT supports business processes. The business is relying on their capabilities to achieve the business goals. The IT strategy should include a plan for supporting those business capabilities, creating efficiencies, and competitive advantage for the business. Define IT priorities and governance for IT. Without priorities and a process for IT governance in place, progress will be slowed. An agreed upon plan for governing IT will enable the decision process. Understand the challenges. Improving processes and increasing efficiencies through IT implementation also requires behavioral and sometimes organizational change. With these changes come inherent challenges. Understanding and planning for those challenges will increase the chance of success in meeting the business goals. Write an 812-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M5_A2.doc.

Assignment overview for each categories compare 5 reference sources 1..almanacs, yearbooks- 2.. handbooks, directories, 3.handbooks, directories 4.indexes & abstracts 5. literary sources (Note that the literature sources will be examples of the other categories, e.g., an encyclopedia of African-American literature, a literary atlas, a Shakespeare dictionary, an annotated bibliography of award books, a literature database/index, etc.) 6..geographical sources (atlases & gazetteers) 7..biographical sources bibliographical sources EACH REFERENCE REVIEW MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING For each of the submissions outlined above, you will locate a minimum of five sources to review. For two of the five sources in each category, you need to do a thorough written review, 300 words each , along with two or more screenshots (or two or more scanned images for print sources). Comments may include things such as these: a feature you especially like; any notable shortcoming; how prek-12 students might use the resource; how it compares with other well-known resources of the same type; authority, accuracy, and bias; currency of information; cost. Consider giving brief descriptions of how the source covers a specific topic or two, so we get a sense of the nature and extent of information provided. For the remaining three sources of the five for each category, you are to provide two screenshots, but with brief comments; 150 words is a good target for these. I want you to look closely at enough titles that you know the important characteristics to use when evaluating reference materials. You may use one print source for each of the submissions. Include an APA style citation for each source that you include in your logs. (Since we don’t typically reference an entire online database, but instead a specific article or document from the database, you should do the APA citation for a specific article or document. If you talk about some specific topics covered in the source — which you should do — using an article for one of those topics that you discuss in your review is an obvious choice.) PUT THE CITATION WITH THE REVIEW, rather than on a separate page. To clarify, each submission should cover five reference sources. Always include at end of review the following: age/grade level range for which resource would be most appropriate; subject area(s) for which resource would be most appropriate; your overall rating on scale of 1-10, with 10 being highest recommendation. Just bullet these items, rather than putting it into paragraph form. We have a wealth of reference materials available through GALILEE (and for students from outside of Georgia, your own state’s shared reference databases). I will be pointing you to some specific resources that are important for all of us to know.
