Translate Data Term to everyday

Data, data, and more data. Data from all sides, news, opinions, decisions, and even when we try to build a perception of the most different issues, data are used to support the main concepts involved.

The participation of data in our daily lives is not new. We have always relied on them to establish our perception of the world and the construction of opinions and decision making. However, more and more available, data became part of everyone’s daily life and in all spheres of action. Every day we are put in contact with information based on data and, with them gaining increasing prominence, we are impelled to try to understand what it is about. But it is not always an easy task, there are many ‘DATA-something- something’ defining concepts that contain other concepts related to what we can do with the data.

This flood of citations to the term ‘DATA’ has been growing exponentially: there are posts, news, articles, books, and everyone bringing ‘DATA-something-something’ as if everyone had an obligation to know the meaning of these concepts.

Many of these concepts come from real situations and result from factors that technological advances provide, while others are defined by companies (the so famous buzzwords). One issue that emerges from this scenario is that often used as a sales pitch, these concepts end up receiving connotations that overlap with the denoting senses.

In this sense, a selection of concepts that permeate the question of data is presented, especially those that have a direct relation to the use of data in digital informational environments. The concepts were selected based on the criterion of a greater presence in publications, especially books, and, in the end, we present an example of using data to illustrate exactly this question of the presence of the term ‘DATA’ in books. It is worth remembering that they are simplified definitions of each of the concepts, and that they aimed at an overview of each term, but that allows the reader to position himself when he finds the so-called ‘DATA-something-something’.

Scientific communications on business process management: statistical analysis of…

From November 2019 to August 2020, a data collection was carried out in the Google Scholar, Base de Dados Referenciais de Artigos de Periódicos em Ciência da Informação and Scielo knowledge bases, in order to know the Brazilian scientific production on Business Process Management theme.

The scope is delimited to search for articles in Portuguese language, published in scientific journals, or in proceedings of scientific congress. The search resulted in 98 scientific communications, of which 56 were discarded, as these are other types of works, in addition to the disposal of articles recovered in a foreign language.

Thus, 42 scientific publications were analyzed. As a result, there was a greater number of publications on Business Process Management in 2014. However, there is a growing trend of publications on Business Process Management. Among the frequently used keywords are Business Process Management and Business Process Management System. Regarding the authorship of the analyzed articles, the author Elisângela Cristina Aganette of the Federal University of Minas Gerais stands out among the 10 authors that most publish articles on Business Process Management.

The University of São Paulo stands out as the institution with the highest number of authors. Regarding the theoretical frameworks to support research, Davenport is the most cited author with 36 citations in articles. In addition, the trio formed by Davenport, Hammer, and Champy are the authors who have reference works that serve as a subsidy for Brazilian research on the subject of Business Process Management.

Biblioteca Central da Universidade Federal do Pará Paper

The 2030 Agenda and the informational content mediated by…

Information and Communication Technologies have enabled new ways for the information mediation process within university libraries, providing tools such as Online Social Networking Services, which provides greater interaction with the user.

Online Social Networking Services are being applied by various sectors of society and have a low cost of financial investment to reach society. In this
context, this research aims to analyze the informational content that is being mediated through the profiles of the Dr. Clodoaldo Beckmann Central Library in the Online Social Networking Services, more specifically the institutional profile of the Facebook Library, in order to understand their role in the social and sustainable development of the Amazon Region, focusing on the relationship with the 2030 Agenda.

Research shows despite advances, the Human Development Indicators (HDI) in the Amazon are still below national averages. In 2016, the United Nations Development Program conducted a ranking list (ranking) of Medium Human Development Indexes (MHDI) of Brazilian municipalities, where it was found that the municipality of Melgaço, State of Pará, has the lowest Brazilian Amazon.

In this way, the research verifies if the data collected through the posts of the library profile on Facebook are in accordance with the guidelines established by IFLA, which states that libraries are agents promoting social and sustainable development, as they enable public access to information. According to the methodological procedures, this research is classified as a case study, using systematic observation as a technique.

The instrument used was a form based on previous studies and the guidelines proposed by IFLA, where the data were categorized according to the type of content and the characteristics of the message. The sample has delimited the posts made from March to September of 2019. It concludes that the Dr. Clodoaldo Beckmann Central Library still prioritizes mediating information about the dissemination of its products and services.

However, there is a concern of this in mediating information that can contribute to well-being and health, and also, to raise the level of learning of students, and this type of content classified as general information, mediated through the Tips of the Week, which disseminates information on reading incentives, time management, preservation of collections, accessibility and memorization techniques.

As one of the largest university libraries in the Northern Region of Brazil, another factor used to expand access to information for the human and social development of the Amazon Region are Campaign-type posts, which are made in partnership with institutions such as Cruzeirinho do Baixo Acará, the João de Barros Barreto University Hospital, the Superintendence of the Pará State Prison System, the Pará Hematology and Hemotherapy Center Foundation, developing their potential for dignity and equality in a healthy environment accessible to all.
