Ways to Use Blockchain in Libraries


Library 2.018: Blockchain Applied: Impact on the Information
Profession by The Learning Revolution Project

DESCRIPTION


We're excited to announce our second Library 2.018 mini-conference:   "Blockchain Applied: Impact on the Information Profession,"
which will be held online (and for free) on Thursday, June 7th, from 
12:00 - 3:00 pm US-Pacific Daylight Time (click for your own time zone).


This event is being organized in partnership with Dr. Sue Alman, who will serve as moderator for the opening panel and as the closing keynote speaker.
The idea for ways that blockchain technology could be used by libraries came after hearing a presentation on LEARNING IS EARNING in the national learning economy made by Jane McGonigal, Institute for the Future, at the at the SXSW conference. The discussion fueled a plan for libraries to validate the academic and professional development credentials of individuals in a permanent electronic ledger that could have global access to their records eliminating the need for individuals to keep track of and submit individual copies of transcripts, certificates, badges, and other credentials. An investigation revealed that libraries might be able to use blockchain technology to accomplish more than housing electronic credentials. 

Twenty-first century information professionals provide dynamic services and resources in physical and virtual spaces through personal interaction, virtual intermediation, or social media. In addition to lending books, information centers provide entry points to the digital world. When walking into a library or information center, you may find robots, makerspaces with 3D printers, collaborative areas, augmented reality apps, and access to an array of digital materials. Librarians/information professionals have the research and technical skills needed to organize and analyze information in order to customize relevant sources for each user. Libraries are dynamic, ever-changing organizations that can anchor communities. Technology enables the profession to broaden our impact within the community and around the globe.

Join the discussion on ways that blockchain technology can be used in libraries. https://ischoolblogs.sjsu.edu/blockchains
We invite all library professionals, employers, LIS students, and educators to provide input and participate this event.
This is a free event, being held online.

Ways to Use Blockchain in Libraries

What is blockchain?

The short explanation: It’s a network-based tool for storing information securely and permanently. The information in a blockchain can be authenticated by members of the public, but the information can be accessed only by those who have permission.

What can information professionals do with blockchains?

Blockchains have been used in a number of different applications ranging from managing a new cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, to using Smart Contracts for coding ways to track transactional data between persons. For those who are either familiar with technology or are just taking a look for the first time, there are several ways in which information professionals may be able to adopt and benefit from this technology. The following scenarios are just a few examples to get the conversation started.


Build an enhanced metadata system for libraries, data centers
Building a distributed, permission-less metadata archive has perhaps the most disruptive potential. Because blockchains operate as a type of informational ledger that don’t require a centralized gatekeeping organization, they could be used to build a truly distributed metadata system for libraries and related organizations. A blockchain OCLC, if you will. Such a system would be accessible to any organization who wishes, with no additional expenditures. The system would scale cleanly, while still maintaining quality of data through selective reading/output choice based on hash signing.

Protect Digital First Sale rights

Another potentially disruptive idea for information ecosystems is that of the Digital First Sale as a result of provable ownership and digital scarcity. A rights management system built on blockchains is obvious and at the center of many current blockchain projects. Of interest to libraries, specifically, is the potential for these projects to be a lever for digital first sale rights. Jason Griffey is in the process of researching such an argument with an internationally-regarded copyright expert, and will be working on a paper arguing for such over the summer 2017. While DRM of any sort is not desirable, if by using blockchain-driven DRM we trade for the ability to have recognized digital first sale rights, it may be a worthy bargain for libraries.
For example:

Connect to a network of libraries/universities

Libraries and universities might use the blockchain for the Inter-Planetary File System (IPFS), a peer to peer protocol for a future Internet that uses bitTorrent, GIT and Blockchain. IPFS circumvents the gatekeeping of ISPs and large Internet companies. The system would need seeders on the Internet to keep copies of websites on their computers. A network of libraries/universities could serve to validate the credentials of a given copy of any website–similar to what miners do for BitCoin.

Support community-based collections

A protocol for supporting community-based collections and borrowing could extend the traditional library collection beyond its walls into the community. Libraries could deploy a blockchain-based system layered with “smart contract” code to facilitate the indexing and sharing of community items (tools, cars, expertise) in a sharing network. The blockchain would govern who has borrowed items, who originally loaned them, etc. This could be a partnership with software developers and businesses.

Host digital peer-to-peer sharing

Library facilitation of peer-to-peer sharing beyond just books through blockchain technology could help members of the community authenticate the availability of different tools or services for a more efficient sharing economy.

Facilitate partnerships across centers/organizations

Libraries can partner with museums, universities, and government agencies to share MARC records, authority control, and user-generated content through a blockchain framework.

Reexamine expectations for ways public libraries contribute to city service

Examination of civic innovations using blockchain technology and development of a rationale for why the library could be an ideal home for such initiatives. Libraries have strong community trust and citizens will connect the purpose of libraries to the goals of these new innovations.

Give badges for skills training

Blockchain could support “badging” for skills acquired through training. Libraries could authenticate the content of personal skills portfolios.

What Is Blockchain?


blockchain
ˈblɒktʃeɪn/

noun
noun: blockchain; plural noun: blockchains; noun: block-chain; plural noun: block-chains
a digital ledger in which transactions made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency are recorded chronologically and publicly.
"we can actually have a look at the blockchain and see evidence of what's going on"

Origin

early 21st century: from block and chain.


Welcome to the brave new world of blockchain. Some say it’s the future lifeblood of the internet and commerce. It will provide the foundation of the most robust information security system ever created. It will allow access to economic tools currently unavailable to billions. You may have seen many articles on blockchain recently. Maybe you’ve never heard of blockchain. Or maybe all you’ve heard about it is the hype.

But what’s a blockchain? The short explanation: It’s a network-based tool for storing information securely and permanently. The information in a blockchain can be authenticated by members of the public, but the information can be accessed only by those who have permission.

Blockchains can take any information—from simple ledgers to complex contracts—and store it in online containers called “blocks.” These blocks are then encrypted, meaning that the information is translated into a unique series of letters and numbers called the “hash.” The hash is created using a special encryption key. Only users who have the key can read the information.

The blocks are then linked together. Each block’s information includes the hash of the previous block in the chain, along with a time stamp. For example, a hash might look like this: 00002fg5d5500aae9046ff80cccefa. The tools that create hashes use sophisticated cryptographic calculations so that each hash in a particular chain will start with a set of standard characters, such as 0000.

How does this keep information secure?  The blocks are “decentralized,” meaning that different blocks are stored on different computers, creating a distributed network of information. This network is public, so members of the public can see the chain and read the hashes.

Changing the information in any block changes its hash. This change then moves up the chain, changing their hashes as well. The hashes in blocks that are further up the chain will no longer start with the standard characters. For example, they won’t start with 0000 and the time stamp will have changed. That means anyone can now see that data in the chain has been compromised.Some blockchains are single chains, but many blockchains work by distributing copies of the whole chain in the decentralized network. If the copies don’t agree with one another, the blockchain’s users will elect to accept only those chains that match, and will discard any compromised chains.

----------------------------

Blockchain is a technology that seems to be a leap change in the business models of the  “digital relationship” as we’re witnessing now. But it is much more than an optimisation of the online interactions in the context of new technologies. It is a proof of evolution of our society, from a centralised system thinking towards a distributed one and the benefits of the change can go beyond imagination. The Next Web explains that the businesses or institutions will keep a role in the constitution of the distributed system, but the system itself is autonomous by definition and powered by its own members [1].
Bitcoin is a digital currency that exists (only) on a specialised blockchain. It is not the only one. See in Business Insider a comparison between todays important cryptocurrencies [2].
Concept & implicationsThe online interaction let aside, this is not a new concept: it was discovered in remote places, applied locally, in small isolated communities (see video below – [3]), being in place for hundreds of years. The concept is about authority belonging to an entire community instead of its concentration into one entity (a person, a company, an institution – as we know it now).
Because of this, there are consequences
– at the level of trust, as we don’t have to look for credentials of only one person or institution. We reach a zone of comfort with trusting an entire community and, the greater the community, the more secure will be any transaction inside that community, the higher the trust.
– on the freedom of information: the knowledge becomes available to everyone in community, at the same time, in a public community/network ledger.

There are already many applications. If you’ll search online, you’ll get already businesses specialised in data storage like MaidSafe or Filecoin, hubs like Blockchain Hub, social platforms Akasha, search engines BitClave that operate on the blockchain technology, as well as applications or experiments of universities, like Blockcerts, from MIT.

Blockchain technologyThere are in fact three technologies that made the blockchain possible. None of them are new, but their combination is [8]. These technologies are:
  1. the private/public key cryptography,
  2. a P2P network with a shared ledger and
  3. a protocol (that requires the existence of an incentive “to service the network’s transactions, record-keeping and security“). 
The key cryptography takes care of the identification of an individual with a private and a public key.
Any transactions made between two persons is recorded in a data block containing the digital signature, the time and the information related to the transaction. A chain of transactions recorded at different times is at the origin of the name of this technology: a blockchain (see figures below).







The transactions range from simple to complex, like contracts that execute themselves – known as “smart contracts”. “Smart contracts help you exchange money, property, shares, or anything of value in a transparent, conflict-free way while avoiding the services of a middleman.” [9].
These transactions are recorded by the entire network at the same time, so every node in the network receives the same reliable information.
The reliability comes from the network protocol, that takes care of the authorisation of a transaction. That happens by the execution of a mathematical problem that is called “proof of work” [4]. This proof of work is a code that runs simultaneously on more computers, doing what it’s known as “mining” a new block. The one computer that solves first the problem, authorises a new block in the chain and gets an incentive: a bitcoin (BTC – in the bitcoin network) or an ethereum (ETH – in the Ethereum network) or any other coin in any other network where such a technology functions.

For a better understanding, follow this 17 minutes demo of MIT experts on how blockchain works.

Is blockchain technology the new internet?
The blockchain is an undeniably ingenious invention – the brainchild of a person or group of people known by the pseudonym,  Satoshi Nakamoto. But since then, it has evolved into something greater, and the main question every single person is asking is: What is Blockchain?
By allowing digital information to be distributed but not copied, blockchain technology created the backbone of a new type of internet. Originally devised for the digital currencyBitcoin,  (Buy Bitcoin) the tech community is now finding other potential uses for the technology.

Bitcoin has been called “digital gold,” and for a good reason. To date, the total value of the currency is close to $9 billion US. And blockchains can make other types of digital value. Like the internet (or your car), you don’t need to know how the blockchain works to use it. However, having a basic knowledge of this new technology shows why it’s considered revolutionary. So, we hope you enjoy this, what is Blockchain guide.

Ahlan Wa Sahlan Ya Ramadhan


Mukaddimah
Alangkah beruntungnya seseorang yang memahami nilai dan fadhilat dan kelebihan bulan tersebut yang ditambah dengan menekuni fiqh Ramadhan sama ada fiqh siyam (puasa) atau yang lain-lain lagi.
Kita mengharapkan agar Ramadhan pada kali ini diisi dengan penuh acara kebaikan sama ada amalan sunat dan sudah semestinya yang wajib perlu dilakukan dengan seterbaik mungkin. Justeru Bayan Linnas pada kali ini kami namakan tajuknya dengan “Ahlan Wa Sahlan Ya Ramadhan.
Semoga pencerahan ini memberi satu matlamat dan inspirasi dalam melayari Ramadhan yang akan berkunjung tiba agar benar-benar menepati piawaian dan syariat Ilahi.

Adab Dan Amalan Di Bulan Ramadhan
Kedatangan Ramadhan pada kali ini, amat perlu kita isi dengan segala bentuk amalan kebajikan yang disunnahkan oleh  Baginda SAW. Yang lebih penting lagi, pastikan Ramadhan pada kali ini iaitu tidak dinafikan pahala ibadat yang kita tunaikan . Ini kerana kita melanggari syarat dan adab yang wajib kita tunaikan. Hal ini berdasarkan kepada sabda Rasulullah SAW:
وَإِذَا كَانَ يَوْمُ صَوْمِ أَحَدِكُمْ، فَلاَ يَرْفُثْ وَلاَ يَصْخَبْ، فَإِنْ سَابَّهُ أَحَدٌ، أَوْ قَاتَلَهُ فَلْيَقُلْ إِنِّي امْرُؤٌ صَائِمٌ
Maksudnya: Maka apabila pada hari kamu berpuasa maka janganlah bercakap kotor dan meraung marah. Maka apabila seseorang mencelanya atau memeranginya maka hendaklah dia berkata: Sesungguhnya aku berpuasa, Sesungguhnya aku berpuasa.
Riwayat Bukhari (1904)
Justeru manual harian Ramadhan dilaksanakan dalam mengukur piawaian pencapaian antara yang terutama adalah berpuasa kerana Allah dalam meninggikan nilai ibadat ini. Firman Allah SWT:
وَمَا أُمِرُوا إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُوا اللَّـهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ
Maksudnya: Pada hal mereka tidak diperintahkan melainkan supaya menyembah Allah dengan mengikhlaskan ibadat kepadaNya,
(Surah al-Bayyinah: 5)
Syed Qutb berkata: Ibadat kepada Allah yang Maha Esa mengkihlaskan ketaatan kepada-Nya, menjauhi syirik dan pendokongnya. Seterusnya ibadat yang tulus ikhlas kepada Allah itu adalah juru bahasa yang menterjemahkan akidah itu. Lihat Fi Zilal al-Quran, 17/484
Antara amalan dan adab yang baik untuk dilaksanakan adalah:
Puasa
  • Ta’khir sahur
  • Awalkan berbuka
  • Ikut sunnah dalam berbuka
 Solat fardu berjamaah
  • Dilakukan di masjid
  • Awalkan langkahan kaki ke masjid
  • Niat i’tikaf ketika memasuki masjid
  • Solat sunat tahiyyatul masjid
  • Solat sunat rawatib
  • Jawablah azan dan berdoa selepasnya.
 Banyakkan bacaan al-Quran
  • Cita-citakan untuk berkhatam
  • Tadabburkan ayat-ayatnya
  • Jangan rasa malas
  • Ajarkan anak dan keluarga ayat-ayat Allah.
 Banyakkan berinfaq
  • Tabung masjid
  • Anak-anak yatim
  • Fakir miskin
  • Orang tua
  • Ibu bapa
  • Kaum keluarga
  • Mereka yang dalam kesusahan seperti gempa bumi atau dilanda banjir
 Menunaikan zakat
  • Zakat fitrah
  • Zakat harta
  • Zakat ternakkan
  • Zakat perniagaan dan lain-lain.
 Menjamu orang puasa untuk berbuka.
Sabda Rasulullah SAW:
مَنْ فَطَّرَ صَائِمًا كَانَ لَهُ مِثْلُ أَجْرِهِ وَلَا يَنْقُصُ مِنْ أَجْرِهِ شَيْءٌ
 Maksudnya: Siapa yang menjamu orang berbuka puasa, maka baginya pahala orang tersebut dengan tidak dikurangi dengan sedikit pun.
Riwayat at-Tabarani (5275)
Lakukanlah amalan yang mulia seperti:
  • Memberi salam
  • Senyum kepada orang ramai
  • Membersih tandas masjid
  • Membersih masjid dan kawasannya
  • Membantu penyediaan makanan di rumah atau di masjid
  • Berbudi bahasa yang tinggi
  • Hadir majlis ilmu dan mempelajarinya
  • Solat tarawih
  • Qiamullail
  • Solat witir
  • Memperbanyakkan zikrullah
Ini kerana pahala amat besar dan lumayan dijanjikan untuk mereka yang sentiasa melazimi zikir. Antara zikir yang boleh kita amalkan ialah:
 سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ، الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ، وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ، وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ
Selain itu, perbanyakkan istighfar antaranya Sayyid al-Istighfar (penghulu istighfar) :
اَللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّيْ لاَ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، خَلَقْتَنِيْ وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ، وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ، أَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ، أَبُوْءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ، وَأَبُوْءُ بِذَنْبِيْ فَاغْفِرْ لِيْ فَإِنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوْبَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ
Begitu juga doa keampunan kepada-Nya seperti :
ربَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِي أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ
Dengan berdoa dan beristghfar, sudah pasti ia mempunyai banyak kelebihan antaranya:
  • Menghapuskan dosa
  • Dikurniakan anak
  • Diturunkan hujan
  • Dimurahkan rezeki
Terdapat satu kisah menarik daripada al-Hassan al-Basri berkenaan istighfar ini. Kisah ini dinukilkan oleh Imam al-Qurtubi dalam tafsirnya, al-Jami’ li Ahkam al-Qur’an. Pada suatu hari ada seorang datang mengadu kepasa Hasan al-Basri tentang masa kemarau. Hasan berkata kepadanya “Beristighfarlah kepada Allah”
Ada pula lelaki lain mengadu akan kemiskinannya. Beliau juga berkata “Beristighfarlah kepada Allah”. Ada pula lelaki lain berkata "Doakanlah supaya Allah memberikan ku anak.” Beliau berkata “Beristighfarlah kepada Allah”. Datang lagi lelaki lain yang mengadu tentang kebunnya yang kekeringan. Beliau berkata “Beristighfarlah kepada Allah”.
Anak muridnya berkata kepada Hasan “Beberapa orang lelaki datang dan mengadu pelbagai jenis perkara tetapi kamu menyuruh mereka semua membaca istighfar?”
Hasan menjawab “Aku sama sekali tidak mengatakan apapun dari diriku sendiri. Sesungguhnya Allah berfirman:
فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفَّارًا ﴿١٠﴾ يُرْسِلِ السَّمَاءَ عَلَيْكُم مِّدْرَارًا ﴿١١﴾ وَيُمْدِدْكُم بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَيَجْعَل لَّكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ وَيَجْعَل لَّكُمْ أَنْهَارًا ﴿١٢
“Aku katakan kepada mereka, “Mohonlah keampunan kepada Tuhanmu sesungguhnya Dia adalah Maha Pengampun nescaya Dia akan mengirimkan hujan kepadamu dengan lebat dan memperbanyakkan harta dan anak2 mu dan mengadakan (pula di dalamnya) untukmu sungai-sungai”  
(Surah Nuh: 10 - 12)
Mohon keampunan kepada-Nya, dengan penuh keinsafan. Moga-moga dengan itu tersingkap tabir noda yang menutup pintu hati kita. Dengan itu, apa yang dihajatkan, akan dikabulkan-Nya dan mendapat redha dari-Nya. Wallahua’lam.
Antara lain, sentiasalah berdoa di bulan Ramadhan lebih-lebih lagi ketika waktu yang digalakkan berdoa, antaranya:
  • Ketika berbuka
  • Ketika bersahur
  • Sedang berpuasa
Dalam bulan Ramadhan ini sebagai menghormati bulan yang mulia, bagi melayyakan kita untuk meraih لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ . Makanya beberapa pantang larang  hendaklah dijauhi, antaranya
  • Sifat marah hendaklah dijarakkan daripada diri kita
  • Sifat hasad dengki
  • Sifat dendam kesumat
  • Sifat takabbur dan sombong
  • Sifat memperlekeh saudara seIslam dan orang lain
  • Sifat wasangka yang buruk dan su’zhan hendaklah diganti dengan husnul zhan (sangkaan baik)

Bulan Ramadhan mengukuhkan Institusi Kekeluargaan
Sebenarnya siang Ramadhan telah membentuk program harian keluarga bermula dengan cara kita berbuka hingga kepada bersahur, begitu juga aktiviti solat tarawih dan solat fardu dengan menuju ke masjid.   
Sebagai contoh kebersamaan dalam berbuka puasa lebih-lebih lagi diisi dengan sedikit tazkirah, zikir, tahlil dan pesan memesan di samping membaca kisah suri teladan sewaktu menunggu berbuka puasa di kalangan kelaurga sudah pasti menatijahkan kerukunan rumah tangga dan perasaan gembira pada hati-hati ahli keluarga.
Selepas itu pula solat berjamaah iaitu solat Maghrib boleh menambahkan lagi perasaan kasih sayang dan keutuhan hubungan selaras dengan pencapaian matlamat Hablum Minallah  Dan Hablum Minnas.  Begitu juga aktiviti yang lain yang dibuat secara kekeluargaan seperti membantu dalam menyediakan makanan hidangan berbuka dan membasuh pinggan mangkuk serta mengemaskan dapur selepas itu boleh menambahkan lagi seri kekeluargaan. 
Menaiki kereta atau kenderaan bersama untuk menuju ke masjid atau surau dalam mengimarahkan malam Ramadhan dengan solat Tarawih, witir dan lain-lain sudah tentu memberi kesan maknawi yang cukup besar dalam jiwa mereka yang melakukannya. Ini menjadikan sebuah keluarga saling mengambil berat antara satu sama lain dan pengalaman anak-anak yang dilatih oleh ibu bapa sudah barang tentu menjadi satu nostalgia yanga kan dicorakkannya pula.
Tatkala mereka menginjak dewasa dan akan menceritakan hal tersebut keapda anak-anaknya pula. Mereka seupaya mungkin akan membuat jauh lebih baik daripada apa yang telah dilakukan oleh ibu bapa mereka dahulu. Natijahnya kelaurga akan menjadi aman damai dan penuh dengan kepuasan untuk meniti dan melayari bahtera kehidupan. Justeru benarlah Ramadhan sebagai pengikat kasih sayang dan penyambung silaturahim disamping membajai kerukunan rumah tangga dalam menuju kegerbang kebahagiaan.
Sifat berkasih sayang menjadi teras dan tiang utama dalam membangunkan institusi kekeluargaan dan juga masyarakat Islam. Dengan penghayatan Islam yang sebenar ibadat puasa serta pengisian malam dalam bulan ramadhan sudah pasti membawa banyak kebaikkan apatah lagi dilakukan secara bersama atau jamaie.
Semoga dengan amal jamaie ini serta berkat Ramadhan dan penambahan amalan yang disulami dengan keikhlasan akan menatijahkan kebahagiaan dalam kelaurga sehingga layak dinobatkan sebagai Baiti Jannti atau rumahku syurgaku. 

Penutup
Ramadhan yang membawa seri satu macam kebaikkan sudah pasti dapat dimanfaatkan oleh Mukmin sejati sama ada amalan yang wajib atau yang sunat, seperti tadarus al-Quran, Qiamullail, Solat Tarawih dan lain-lain. Begitu juga dengan mengkaji sejarah Ramadhan melalui kemenangan umat Islam sejak zaman Rasulullah SAW lagi sehingga kepada mutakhir ini. Sudah pasti kita dapati kemenangan Islam banyak berlaku pada bulan Ramadhan, seolah-olah mengisyaratkan kepada kita bahawa bulan Ramadhan memberi kekuatan kerohanian, spiritual dan juga semangat yang kental sehingga dapat melakarkan kemuncak kejayaan.
Benarlah kata Buya Hamka: Hidup kita hanya sekali, justeru biarlah beerti. Maka ambillah peluang Ramadhan yang akan menjelma tiba untuk diisi dengan sebanyak-banyaknya amalan yang soleh. Inilah musim durian runtuh kebaikkan dan kebajikkan. Marilah kita merebut peluang ini.
Oleh itu, marilah sama-sama kita menjadikan bulan Ramadhan al-Muabarak sebagai Madrasah Rohaniah dan Fikriyyah, yang boleh melonjakkan kita ke persada kejayaan.
Semoga Ramadhan kali ini adalah yang terbaik untuk kita. Sekali lagi diucapkan Ahlan Wa Sahlan Ya Ramadhan.
