Abstract:
Present research focuses on the transforming tendency of librarianship in the forthcoming metaverse era to make an in depth theoretical analysis and discussion from the perspective of world 3 theory and the principle of knowledge organization. With a systematic review of the metaverse related definitions and descriptions,we identify the virtual reality interaction of information communication and immersive participation of individuals as two dimensions to make an in depth analysis for the structure of metaverse. This paper sheds light on the formation and function of the future library based on the analysis of the two dimensions of metaverse as we mention above along with the theoretical path from the representation of the inner structure of objective knowledge world to the functions of library in social cognition upgrading process.
Based on the integrated analysis on the two dimensions of metaverse with bi dimensions of library profession,which are record resources and client,we find that:1)Future librarianship under the context of metaverse is expected to fulfill the goals of knowledge organization via representation of “world 3” internal structure,and meanwhile,the organized objective knowledge world will be the basis for the library profession to promote the upgrading of social cognition process. 2)The library profession is expected to transform from the traditional physical place as book stack room to a knowledge exchange field in the metaverse era. Besides,the functions of future library will transform from social information poverty reduction system to a social thought experiment platform.
This research is expected to benefit the theoretical development and practice process in the context of metaverse by forecasting the library profession in the future through the following aspects. Firstly,in the metaverse age,the idea of library as the knowledge communication intermediary is likely to be realized finally;Secondly,the forthcoming metaverse era looks forward to re defining the function and mission of the library profession;Thirdly,it is urgent for library profession to pay attention to the discipline and specialty development in advance with the in depth understanding of the metaverse. 43 refs.
中文摘要:
      本文立足于世界3理论和知识组织原理,对元宇宙时代图书馆职业变迁展开理论分析和讨论。从元宇宙所具备的信息交流方式变革和个体沉浸式参与两个维度入手,以客观知识世界内在结构的表征和图书馆在社会认识高级进程化中的作用为理论分析路径,对元宇宙语境下图书馆的形态和功能进行探索和分析。研究发现,以“世界3”内在结构表征为目标的知识组织将是元宇宙时代图书馆的主要业务突破口,而经过整序的客观知识世界将是图书馆促进社会认识高级化进程的基础;元宇宙时代,图书馆将面临由场所到场域的形态之变和由制度设计到思想实验平台的功能之变。基于新型的元宇宙场景对图书馆的未来展开讨论,有助于图书情报领域展开前瞻性的理论建设与实践转型。参考文献43。
