Proposal Submission Deadline: January 30, 2014

Structure, Mechanics, and Practical Uses of the Hidden Web

A book edited by Dr. Shalin Hai-Jew

                                                                     (Kansas State University, USA)                     


To be published by IGI Global: http://bit.ly/18XFbLg


For release in the Advances in Web Technologies and Engineering (AWTE) Book Series

The Advances in Web Technologies and Engineering (AWTE) Book Series seeks to create a stage where comprehensive publications are distributed for the objective of bettering and expanding the field of web systems, knowledge capture, and communication technologies. The series will provide researchers and practitioners with solutions for improving how technology is utilized for the purpose of a growing awareness of the importance of web applications and engineering.



Competitive advantage involves attaining access to relevant information. With the Internet and Web delivering so much of the world’s information, people have long found ways to exploit the publicly available open-source intelligence (OSINT). Since the inception of the Web, there have been various types of data records that are called up dynamically to users for various use cases. These records are web-accessible to users who generally have to authenticate into particular sites to gain access. This information is part of the so-called “Hidden Web” because the contents are not as easily located using contemporary web browsers; rather, the data is accessed through Web forms, Web service interfaces, and focused Deep Web portals (designed to find particular types of information, such as dynamically-generated or ephemeral information, various types of Web database records, or subscription-based materials). Currently, the Hidden or Deep Web is said to contain some upwards of 9 petabytes of information and tens of millions of discrete data sources, many times the size of the Surface Web (or Publicly Indexable Web), which contains billions of static Web pages. Multiple sources suggest a 500-2000:1 ratio between the Hidden Web and the surface one. The Hidden Web is said to contain hundreds of billions of Web pages. What this suggests is that there is a lot of underlying Web-based data that is going unexploited and generally undiscovered by a majority of those accessing the WWW through browsers and limited Web forms alone. This also suggests that any solutions for federated searching of the Hidden Web will need to be efficient and scalable while engaging a broad range of data. With advancements in Internet technology, Hidden Web data sources are expected to grow exponentially.


Some modern browsers have added some Hidden Web crawling capabilities as well. In the past decade, there have been various endeavors to map the Hidden Web by extracting metadata about the records, to extract selective data (structured, semi-structured, and unstructured) through federated hidden web searches, to protect some of the information, and to provide tools for users to better access and reconstitute this information in human- and machine-usable form. Some progress has been made in this area, but there are still challenges that are being explored and addressed.


Objective of the Book

The overall objectives of this text would be to expand human ways of knowing what is on the Hidden Web and how to access this information. This work will help readers understand some structures of the Hidden Web and ways to access and analyze the information there. This will also address the use of metadata for analysis.


This work will have implications not only for research but also for information security and assurance planning, in terms of understanding the various Hidden Web “attack surfaces” possible online and methods for protecting this Web-delivered data.


Target Audience

This book could be used by academics, researchers, journalists, and other professionals who have an interest in the Hidden Web and the information it contains. The electronic information can be added to public Web searches. The competitive advantage in research involves accessing information that others do not have or do not know about.


There are also potential implications for those who work in IT security and data protection. Knowing how to search the Hidden Web shows some of the limits to site and information security.


Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • History of the hidden Web

Revolutionizing the Development of Library and Information Professionals: Planning for the Future


Proposal Submission Deadline: October 30, 2012


A book edited by Samantha Schmehl Hines

University of Montana


To be published by IGI Global:



As more associations and event planners compete for limited professional development funding, we must examine how to produce conferences, continuing education, and other events in a more cost-effective and learning-effective manner.  Why do library workers attend the events that they do? What is changing for library workers with regard to professional development due to technological innovations, cost barriers, and so on?  How can associations produce quality events that people will attend, and how can they do so effectively and efficiently?  This book will focus on thoughtful analysis, backed up by data, of why library workers attend professional development events and what types or aspects of events make the experience worthwhile.


This book will impact those who put together professional development opportunities for librarians–associations, publishers, educational institutions, and so on.  It will also be useful for those in management and human resources positions in libraries.  It has the potential to make library professional development more effective and cost-efficient, and provide library workers with more worthwhile opportunities for training.


Objective of the Book

There has been no recent or thorough examination of why library workers attend professional development events and what types or aspects of events make the experience worthwhile.  There is very little published information on how to best provide professional development experiences for library workers from a generalized perspective as opposed to case studies.  There is a need for factual and informative writing about what the future of library professional development can, will, and should look like.  That is what this book will provide.


Target Audience

The audience for this monograph will be those in the library profession who are planning professional development opportunities.  This includes library association personnel, educational institutions, management personnel in large libraries or library systems, private organizations who produce professional development opportunities, and so on.  It will be used by management and/or human resources personnel to determine future trends in professional development for their staff and by those who create and offer professional development opportunities to maximize usefulness and profit. 


Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas within the context of professional development programming, funding and opportunities for library employees:

  • Professional development outside librarianship: what lessons can we learn?
  • Funding for professional development within organizations
  • External funding for professional development: grants, sponsors, etc.
  • What does the traditional library association conference provide for associations?
    • Financial benefits, increased membership, positive PR
  • How to best achieve the rejuvenating effects of professional development
  • The importance of the intensive institute
  • The impact of location on events’ success
  • Networking opportunities for library professionals in the virtual age
  • Trends in skills development for library workers
  • Local to global: what these association types offer for providing development opportunities
  • The role of subject-specific/topical associations in professional development
  • Future of vendors and exhibits in conferences
  • Virtual professional development: is it really the future?


Submission Procedure

Potential authors are invited to submit on or before October 30, 2012, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by November 15, 2012 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by February 28, 2012.



This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the “Information Science Reference” (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” “Business Science Reference,” and “Engineering Science Reference” imprints.

Mothers and Motherhood in the Spanish-Speaking World

Demeter Press
is seeking submissions for an edited collection
Mothers and Motherhood in the Spanish-Speaking World

Editors: Marina Bettaglio and C�ndida Elizabeth Vivero Mar�n
bettagli@uvic.ca and elizabeth_vivero@hotmail.com Publication Date: 2015

Traditional  representations  of  motherhood  in  Spanish-speaking
countries  have  favoured  the image of the selfless, abnegated mother,
totally devoted to her children. As a woman whose entire life was at the
service of others, she was supposed to find fulfillment in caring for and
supporting her family.   Modelled after the Virgin Mary, this idealized
maternal role dominated, with regional differences, the Spanish and Latin
American imaginary for centuries.  Marianismo, the cultural expression of
this ideological position, demonstrates the pervasiveness of the Marian
cult in Latin America, where the dichotomy Virgin/Whore described by
Octavio Paz has played a key role in imposing normative maternal values.
Nonetheless, during the last two decades new maternal configurations have
emerged in literature, comics, cinema, music, and art.   This collection
seeks to examine counter-hegemonic discourses that stand in stark or
seeming opposition to traditional representations.  The editors seek
article-length contributions from scholars from a variety of disciplines,
including literature, cinema, music and popular culture in general.

Articles may examine (but are not limited to) the following topics:
Non-traditional mothers, step-mothers, lesbian mothers, immigrant mothers,
minority mothers,
professional  mothers,  writing  mothers,  artist  mothers,  new
stay-at-home  mothers, supermommies, sexually desiring mothers, celebrity
mothers, yummy mommies/mummies, deviant mothers, perverse mothers,
criminal mothers, drug-addicted mothers, or incarcerated mothers.
Submission Guidelines:
Please submit abstracts of 250 words and include your 50 word bio and

Deadline for Abstracts is February 1st, 2013. Please send submissions and
inquiries directly to: Marina Bettaglio and C�ndida Elizabeth Vivero Mar�n

Proposal Submission Deadline: 15 March 2011, accepted Full Chapters Due: 15 June 2011


Since the advent of Web search engines in the 1990s, research has been conducted on their use and their quality  in both computer science and in library and information science. While research in computer science mainly focuses on technical aspects of search engines, the focus of information science research is on users? behaviour when using search engines and how their interactions can be evaluated. Furthermore, information science research takes into account search engines? impact on society. However, it does not solely take the perspective of search engines as ?new media?, but can take a unique perspective integrating technical aspects, user aspects and their impact on their role in knowledge acquisition.

The book therefore will follow a wide approach, and the editor is seeking contributions from a variety of research areas. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Retrieval effectiveness
* User satisfaction
* Evaluation of search engine interfaces
* Search engines? index quality
* The impact of search on society
* Reliability of search results
* Query log analysis
