On March 8, 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 loaded 239 people onboard and took off for what should have been a six-hour flight. It never made it - and it's still missing. It's been a year since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished, and there's still no sign of the aircraft, its passengers, or its crew nor confirmation of what happened or where the aircraft resides. In this gripping investigation of the events that led to the plane's disappearance and why they could happen again, CNN aviation analyst David Soucie exposes the flaws in the aviation industry, shares what needs to be done so a plane doesn't go missing again, and uses a Bayesian analysis model to reveal what most likely happened onboard the plane that led to its downfall. Comprehensive in scope, personal and empathetic in voice, Soucie draws on his 30 years of experience as an accident investigator working with the Federal Aviation Administration. He allows you to put the wild speculation about the plane's disappearance aside and assess the facts through the eyes of an experienced accident investigator.

The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the usability of a site called the e-Lesson Creator (eLC). E-Lesson Creator is a web-based course management system developed by a group of researchers from the School of Educational Studies, Universiti Sains Malaysia led by Abdul Rashid Mohamed. The main objectives of the development of the eLC were to create customized lessons to suit the learning needs of learners with different levels of abilities and to make it readily available and easily accessible to teachers at different geographical locations. In practice, the e-Lesson Creator is a platform from which teachers choose and pick the material needed from a multimedia library using a lesson template wizard that has been specifically created for that purpose. The evaluation focused on usability testing of its interface design. This usability testing employed the Heuristics Evaluation method (1993), which involved examining the e-lesson Creator s User Interface Design in the areas of Screen Design, Navigational patterns, Ease of Access, Ease of Use of Site and Flexibility of use. The evaluation pointed to positive and encouraging acceptance by the subjects.
Consistent with its aim to become a research university, the International Islamic University Malaysia introduced its online database system in 2000 as part of its e-library services. Factors such as perceived benefits, computer self-efficacy and satisfaction were hypothesized to be major barriers. To test the influence of these factors on students' adoption of the online database, an adoption questionnaire based on an extended Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) was administered. The questionnaire's reliability and validity were established through a RASCH analysis while the data were analysed using the Structural Equation Modeling. The results revealed significant influences of perceived usefulness and computer self- efficacy on postgraduate students' intention to use the database and their satisfaction in using it. In addition, perceived ease of use and intention to use were found to have a significant direct influence on satisfaction. The findings contributed to a better understanding of the TAM and technology adoption and satisfaction among postgraduate students.
The main objective of this study is to investigate the use of social networking sites (SNSs) for marketing of academic library services. Specifically the objectives are to: explore the use of SNSs by academic libraries, investigate the perceptions of academic librarians towards marketing of library services through SNSs, and determine the predictors that may influence users engagement in the electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) via SNSs. This study employs the qualitative and quantitative approach. It is conducted sequentially in three phases. First, the priority is to explore the social networking sites (SNSs) used by the academic libraries in Malaysia by means of web analysis of academic library websites and library SNSs pages. The second phase involves structured interviews to investigate the perceptions of academic librarians on the use of SNSs for marketing of academic library services. Finally, the third phase focuses on quantitative method through a survey to determine the predictors that influence user s engagement in electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) through SNSs.
The book is originally the author's master's dissertation in knowledge sharing practices among library staff from Kulliyyah (Faculty) of Information and Communication Technology (KICT), International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). The book focuses on knowledge sharing practices among library staff with special reference to the staff at IIUM Gombak Campus Library. The objective of the study is to establish the extent to which knowledge sharing practices occur among professional library staff in their daily activities. The results of the study revealed that almost all library staff of IIUM Gombak campus library use the Internet for emailing, texting, voice mailing, etc. as part of their communication channel. The study concludes that knowledge sharing practices involve managerial support and individual creativity. Recommendations on how some of these issues can be addressed were also provided.
This book was submitted to Asia-Europe Institute, University of Malaya, KL, Malaysia as degree requirement in International Masters in Information Management (IMIM). It covers different roles of Librarian whose role evolved from a documentation officer to the Information Officer of the present age. There is a drastic change in his professional role and high expectations since the emergence of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), particularly of internet in the late nineteenth century. Future role of Librarian is beyond the limitations of borders and other restrictions of duty timings, duty charts, and many others. Emerging concepts of Wikis, Library 2.0, and Don Tapscott's ideas of open enterprises look like initial steps for future role settings of a librarian. Presence of highly efficient search engines equipped with enormous information resources on a desktop screen looks like defining librarian role as information find engine. End users of internet have wide variety of search engines but they lack finding proper information at proper time for proper use. There seems space for information officer to perform his future information role.
