Pandemic, Family Farming and Information and Communication Technologies: research…

This editorial reflects on an event that marked the year 2020. The moment is of a pandemic, which brought up challenges already faced in history, but with an extra spice – the interrelation of People, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Perhaps this milestone has driven or even consolidated, a trend that has already been penetrating the social fabric since the “universalization” of digital devices and the Internet, called by Castells (1999) as the Information Society.

Archival Science and Blockchain: theoretical discussion about opportunities and…

Blockchain has characteristics that can contribute to archival activities related to the security of digital documents, although it was a technology created to solve problems of financial transactions. This research aims to identify the opportunities and barriers presented by Blockchain, especially to examine the challenges that this technology can bring to Archival Science.

This bibliographic research has a qualitative and quantitative approach, carried out through the analysis of scientific communications published in journals and conference proceedings available in Google Scholar, SciELO, and Web of Science knowledge bases. The data was collected during April and May 2019. Among the 108 publications collected, 57 were discarded because they did not meet the defined criteria. A total of 51 publications were analyzed, among which 12 were identified with topics related to the area of ​​knowledge studied. After applying the research quality criterion, 5 publications were selected to be analyzed.

About the opportunities offered by Blockchain, the integrity of digital documents and access to information are among the most addressed issues. On the other hand, the time lag to register information, technological obsolescence, and privacy issues are among the challenges to adopt Blockchain. It is concluded that Blockchain may is an important asset for Archival Science not only to ensure the authenticity of the documents but also to optimize and maintain security in the processing and storage of digital archival documents. However, it is paramount to discuss in more depth about long-term preservation, information privacy, and user privacy.

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.
