Why we organize our personal digital data the way we do and how design of new PIM systems can help us manage our information more efficiently. Each of us has an ever-growing collection of personal digital data: documents, photographs, PowerPoint presentations, videos, music, emails and texts sent and received. To access any of this, we have to find it. The ease (or difficulty) of finding something depends on how we organize our digital stuff. In this book, personal information management (PIM) experts Ofer Bergman and Steve Whittaker explain why we organize our personal digital data the way we do and how the design of new PIM systems can help us manage our collections more efficiently. Bergman and Whittaker report that many of us use hierarchical folders for our personal digital organizing. Critics of this method point out that information is hidden from sight in folders that are often within other folders so that we have to remember the exact location of information to access it. Because of this, information scientists suggest other methods: search, more flexible than navigating folders; tags, which allow multiple categorizations; and group information management. Yet Bergman and Whittaker have found in their pioneering PIM research that these other methods that work best for public information management don't work as well for personal information management. Bergman and Whittaker describe personal information collection as curation: we preserve and organize this data to ensure our future access to it. Unlike other information management fields, in PIM the same user organizes and retrieves the information. After explaining the cognitive and psychological reasons that so many prefer folders, Bergman and Whittaker propose the user-subjective approach to PIM, which does not replace folder hierarchies but exploits these unique characteristics of PIM.

Author: Julia Schwanholz
In light of the increased utilization of information technologies, such as social media and the ‘Internet of Things,’ this book investigates how this digital transformation process creates new challenges and opportunities for political participation, political election campaigns and political regulation of the Internet. Within the context of Western democracies and China, the contributors analyze these challenges and opportunities from three perspectives: the regulatory state, the political use of social media, and through the lens of the public sphere. The first part of the book discusses key challenges for Internet regulation, such as data protection and censorship, while the second addresses the use of social media in political communication and political elections. In turn, the third and last part highlights various opportunities offered by digital media for online civic engagement and protest in the public sphere. Drawing on different academic fields, including political science, communication science, and journalism studies, the contributors raise a number of innovative research questions and provide fascinating theoretical and empirical insights into the topic of digital transformation.

Information professionals are becoming increasingly reliant on content in digital form such as databases, news feeds, e-books, electronic reference materials or e-journals; or they may wish to digitize content that they hold in hard copy format. Rather than relying exclusively on copyright law to protect their content, rights owners also use licence or contractual agreements, and technology in the shape of digital rights management (DRM) systems and electronic rights management information, in order to protect, control and enforce their rights over digital assets. DRM technology is used in order to control access to digital content; the uses made of that content; and the integrity of the work; and also in order to ensure payment. The Copyright Directive (2001/29/EC) which was implemented in the UK through the Copyright and Related Rights Regulations gave legal protection to those using such systems. This book is a practical guide to the use of digital content. It deals with the question of how electronic information can be used legitimately, outlining the issues to be considered and suggests practical ways in which copyright clearance can be obtained whilst keeping the administration to a manageable level. It will cover topics such as: managing database and e-journal licenses; rights such as music, video or audio content; the implications of digital rights for teaching and learning, such as the use of digital content in virtual or management learning environments; the rights owner's perspective.

What does it take for success in the media business? Creativity, innovation, and performance, of course. Plus experience and good judgment. However, it also requires an understanding of the principles and tools of management. This book summarizes the major dimensions of a business school curriculum and applies them to the entire media, media-tech, and digital sectors. Its chapters cover—in a jargonless, non-technical way—the major management functions. First, creating a media product: the financing of projects and the management of technology, HR, production operations, intellectual assets, and government relations. Second, harvesting the product created: market research, marketing, pricing, and distribution. And third, is the control loop: media accounting and strategy planning. The book’s interdisciplinary approach goes beyond an industry-by-industry coverage and centers around management functions. In the process, this book becomes an indispensable resource for those aiming for a career in the media and digital field, both in startups and established organizations. It is also a work that helps advance the entire field—the management of information resources and products—to a more central role in business analysis. This book is designed to help those already in the sector or those joining it to become creative managers and managerial creatives. It aims to make managers in this field more knowledgeable, less blinded by hype, more effective, more productive, and more responsible.

Informative and thought-provoking, the book describes an evolving future that, in some quarters, has already arrived.
