    BENGKEL MS ISO 9001:2000 INTERNAL AUDITING
                4 - 5 FEBRUARI 2002

 Perpustakaan Sultanah Zanariah (PSZ) mengadakan Bengkel MS ISO
 9001:2000 Internal Auditing selama 2 hari iaitu pada 4 - 5 Februari 2002,
 bertempat di Bilik Seminar 3, PSZ, UTM, Sekudai. Peserta bengkel terdiri
 daripada 30 staf PSZ yang telah mendapat bimbingan daripada fasilitator,
 Encik Roslan Hashim, Perunding daripada Sirim Training Services Sdn. Bhd.

 PSZ mendapat persijilan MS ISO 9002:1994 pada tahun 1998 dan kini dalam
 usaha untuk menaiktaraf ke Sistem Kualiti MS ISO 9001:2000 pada
 pertengahan tahun 2002. Proses mengimplementasi Sistem Kualiti MS ISO
 9001:2000 merupakan proses yang rumit dan mencabar. Penggunaan staf
 dalaman untuk menyediakan prosedur dan arahan kerja sendiri adalah lebih
 berkesan kerana ia lebih praktikal dan terdapat unsur empunya proses.
 Melalui bengkel ini, peserta akan didedahkan kepada prosedur pengauditan
 dokumen berkaitan MS ISO 9001:2000 dan persiapan organisasi bagi
 memudahkan proses pencapaian pengiktirafan Sistem Kualiti MS ISO
 9001: 2000.

 Objektif:

                Kefahaman dalam pengauditan dokumen yang berkaitan MS ISO
                9001:2000
                Persediaan organisasi ke arah mencapai MS ISO 9001:2000
                Mencapai peranan pengurusan dan staf dalam mencapai MS ISO
                9001:2000
                Kefahaman MS ISO dan hubungkait dengan proses dalam
                perpustakaan
                Persiapan awal menghadapi audit
                Memahami jenis audit dan aplikasinya

 Diharapkan dengan penganjuran bengkel ini, ia dapat meningkatkan tahap
 pengetahuan, kemahiran, dan pemahaman terhadap Sistem Kualiti MS ISO
 9001:2000 dikalangan staf PSZ.

This book, written by experts, is a first-of-its-kind. It presents the technology and non-technology aspects of
e-commerce and takes it to a level that gives a clear understanding of the basic building blocks for its
implementation.

The book begins with the basics in the first and second part, and describes the Internet and Intranets. The
third part describes EDI, the UN/EDIFACT Standards, Extranets and Tracking Tools. Part four comprises security
- a critical component of e-commerce. Different cryptographic system and Public Key Certification method
based on X.509 standards have been covered. Part five delves into reengineering and management of change
and legal issues.

The book is extensively illustrated and contains data and documents of importance, the UN/EDIFACT message
directory, UN/EDI Interchange Agreement and the IT Action Plan which seeks to promote the use of electronic
commerce in India in a big way.


                                    Judul : Competitiveness, Technology
                                          Pengarang : Sanjaya Lall
                                    No. Panggilan : HD3616 .D4 L35 2001

Competitiveness becomes a growing concern for developing countries as they liberalise their economies and
open up to global trade, investment and technology flows. They fear that liberalisation by itself may not, in the
presence of market and institutional deficiencies, lead to the optimal allocation of resources. In particular, it
may lead to the realisation of static rather than dynamic comparative advantages - a threat to sustained growth
in a world of rapid technical change.

This book draws together recent contributions by Sanjaya Lall - a leading authority on international
investment, technology and industrial policy - on competitiveness and its major determinants. It draws upon
his wide experience of competitiveness analysis in Asian and African countries and his recent work on
technology and skills. It contains his most important published material as well as previously unpublished
articles, and will be of interest to students, researchers and policy analysts interested in industrial
development, technology and human resources.

Ketua Pustakawan, Rosna Taib dan Ketua Jabatan Pembangunan Sumber, PSZ, Noraziah Sharuddin
telah diberi kepercayaan oleh Jawatankuasa Persidangan Perpustakaan Universiti dan Perpustakaan
Negara Malaysia (PERPUN) untuk menjadi fasilitator dan mengendalikan sesi Bengkel Pengurusan Ilmu
Pengetahuan (Knowledge Management) kepada Ketua-Ketua Pustakawan IPTA dan wakil-wakilnya
pada 2-3 Februari 2002 bertempat di Shangri La Rasa Ria Resort, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Kepercayaan
ini merupakan satu penghargaan dan pengiktirafan kepada Pustakawan PSZ yang telah mengambil inisiatif
terhadap usha-usaha menguruskan ilmu pengetahuan di peringkat Universiti ini.


Bengkel yang dihadiri oleh 20 peserta seluruh Malaysia ini diadakan dengan objektif untuk memberi
pendedahan dan kefahaman terhadap aspek pengurusan ilmu pengetahuan dan penekanan terhadap peranan
yang harus dimainkan oleh profesion Pustakawan dalam menguruskan ilmu pengetahuan di institusi
masing-masing.


Pengalaman dan usaha-usaha pengurusan ilmu pengetahuan yang telah dimainkan oleh PSZ telah turut
dibentangkan di bengkel ini yang mana ianya boleh menjadi contoh dan panduan pelaksanaan di
perpustakaan IPTA lain.


Naib Canselor Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Prof. Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Abu Hassan Othman dalam
ucapan aluannya pada bengkel tersebut telah menyatakan penghargaan terhadap usaha Perpustakaan
Sultanah Zanariah, UTM dan menyarankan lain-lain Pustakawan mempelajari dan berkongsi pengetahuan
untuk manfaat bersama. Beliau juga turut menekankan bahawa perpustakaan adalah salah satu dari
faktor yang kritikal dalam memastikan kejayaan sistem pembelajaran di universiti yang berdaya saing.


Sehubungan dengan itu juga, PSZ kini sedang giat meneruskan usaha ke arah memastikan ilmu pengetahuan
yang terdapat di UTM diurus dengan baik agar dapat dikongsi bersama masyarakat Universiti. Ini adalah
bertepatan dengan salah satu dari resolusi yang dicapai semasa Persidangan ‘Knowledge Management in
the Digital World’ anjuran PSZ pada 22 - 24 Oktober, 2001 lalu yang mana diputuskan Pustakawan
perlu lebih proaktif dalam memainkan peranan sebagai agen pengurusan ilmu pengetahuan dalam organisasi
masing-masing.

            FORUM MEMORI KORPORAT UTM
                                    21 Mac 2002
                                Bilik Seminar 3, PSZ

Ilmu pengetahuan pada lazimnya terdapat dalam dua bentuk iaitu Ilmu Pengetahuan Nyata (explicit
knowledge) dan Ilmu Pengetahuan Tidak Nyata (tacit knowledge). Ilmu pengetahuan nyata boleh didapati
kebanyakannya dalam bentuk dokumen bercetak manakala ilmu pengetahuan tidak nyata pula terdapat dalam
idea, minda, amalan harian, pengalaman, memori dan seumpamanya yang kebiasaannya sukar dilihat dengan
mata kasar.

Memori Korporat UTM adalah satu usaha pengurusan ilmu pengetahuan (knowledge management) yang diterajui
oleh PSZ bagi mencungkil ilmu pengetahuan ‘tacit’ yang terdapat dari pengalaman dan minda individu tertentu
di Universiti ini supaya ianya kekal sebagai Memori Korporat UTM.

Usaha mencungkil memori individu di UTM telah dimulakan oleh PSZ sejak 1996 melalui format wawancara
dengan tokoh-tokoh yang pernah berkhidmat dengan UTM. Satu format khusus yang dikenali sebagai Forum
Memori Korporat UTM. Forum ini dirancang akan diadakan secara berterusan bagi memastikan pengurusan
ilmu pengetahuan ‘tacit’ UTM yang lebih berkesan.

        Memperolehi pengajaran dari pengalaman orang lain sebagai panduan.

        Mengelak dari mengulang sesuatu yang telah sedia ada supaya menjimatkan masa dan kos.

        Memperolehi ilmu pengetahuan ‘best practice’ dari mereka yang pakar dalam bidang tertentu.

        Memastikan ilmu pengetahuan yang tidak didokumen diperolehi untuk rujukan generasi akan datang.

        Memastikan rentetan atau rasional sesuatu peristiwa, isu, projek dan sebagainya mengenai UTM
        dikongsi bersama masyarakat UTM.

        Membantu memahami dan mempelajari mengenai Universiti dengan lebih mendalam.

        Memperolehi ilmu pengetahuan dan maklumat yang lebih terperinci mengenai UTM bagi
        membantu pihak pengurusan mengambil keputusan yang lebih efektif.

Tema Forum yang julung kali diadakan ini dipilih bersesuaian dengan pengalaman tiga dekad yang telah dilalui
oleh dua tokoh panel Forum iaitu Dato’ Prof. Parid Wardi bin Sudin dan Prof. Syed Mohd. Famy bin Syed
Mansor. Kedua tokoh tersebut telah melalui satu jangkamasa yang panjang di UTM dan ini sudah tentunya
mengumpul seribu satu pengalaman berharga yang tersimpan dalam memori keduanya.

Forum yang akan dipengerusikan oleh Ketua Pustakawan ini akan cuba mencungkil pengalaman dan idea
keduanya dari berbagai perspektif yang telah dikenalpasti. Pengalaman mereka akan didokumenkan bagi
memastikan ilmu pengetahuan yang dikumpul dari memori keduanya akan dapat disimpan kekal dan boleh
diakses oleh masyarakat UTM.

Siri Forum Memori Korporat UTM yang merupakan satu kaedah bagi pengurusan ilmu pengetahuan universiti
ini diharapkan dapat selanjutnya menjadi landasan bagi membolehkan ilmu pengetahuan yang tersimpan dalam
minda individu tertentu diperolehi, dikumpul dan dikongsi bersama masyarakat Universiti untuk kebaikan bersama.

 CRM applications turned to the Web to extend their reach and improve interoperability

FOR MANY COMPANIES, CRM has always ranked among the most challenging and
multifaceted of enterprise technologies. Establishing the priorities among CRM goals and identifying
the best approach to achieving them always varies greatly, depending on the industry sector, culture,
and size of each organization — which explains why, in 2001, CRM still meant different things to
different people.

In other words, enterprises last year continued to pick and choose their CRM solutions from a large
palette of options. Many stood by the ambitious, integrated, multilayered suites from tried-and-true
vendors such as PeopleSoft, SAP, and Siebel. But more and more companies also chose to address
isolated business functions, such as contact management, SFA (sales-force automation), call centers,
or marketing analysis.

Clearly, by focusing on a single aspect of the complex grid of customer interactions, enterprises were
able to simplify their implementations, thereby making each project more manageable and ultimately
more effective. But a phased approach also puts a greater demand on after-the-fact integration. For
example, an enterprise that deployed a marketing analysis application when a successful SFA solution
is already in place could be forced to adjust both applications so they can work from a common
database.

Although those kinds of adjustments should be easier with applications from an integrated suite, many
enterprises continued to shift toward mixed, best-of-breed solutions in 2001. The rationale: Any
given component of an integrated suite is not necessarily the best tool for the job, so by combining
solutions from different sources, companies can build CRM packages that better fit their business
requirements and budgets.

Ironically, one of the factors driving this trend was the transformation of many vendors’ client/server
CRM products into software that can be served over the Internet and would be therefore easier to
integrate with similarly built applications. Of course, longtime observers of the CRM landscape have
already seen the Web’s congeniality used to fulfill both pragmatic needs (such as delivering instant
directions to a customer’s address or ubiquitous access to a database of prospects) and more
sophisticated objectives (such as collecting leads or connecting to a marketing analysis service hosted
by a third party).

In addition to greater interoperability, Web-delivered CRM also offers other benefits, such as thin,
Java-based clients that can be activated from any Web browser or computer, regardless of platform
and location, and wireless clients that can connect remote workers to a central database using a smart
phone or pocket device.

In short, the Internet has unleashed the potential of CRM applications, delivering more value for each
company and sharpening the tools to help enterprises understand, serve, and anticipate customers’
demands. The advent of Web services should propel CRM even further toward achieving its ultimate
goal of boosting sales by giving customers the services and terms that keep them coming back for
more.
