A Tale of Two Libraries | Reinventing Libraries

A Tale of Two Libraries | Reinventing Libraries | Innovations With Potential to Impact Libraries | Scoop.it

The library in 2020 will be a tale of two academic research libraries: one flourishing in the best of times and one languishing in the worst of times.

In this work of fiction, in 2012, our two research libraries were both situated in tier-one research institutions established over 175 years ago, steeped in tradition yet vying for the attention of students who are increasingly opting for an online, global education over a residential university experience. Both libraries are housed in iconic spaces traditionally defined by the depth and scale of their collections. Deep traditions add weight to the challenges of transforming these libraries to meet the needs of 21st-century researchers and learners. Adding to this challenge are the complexities and elusiveness of achieving transformational change.

The library looked ahead to 2020 and then looked back to 2005. How had teaching changed? How had research changed? How had technology, content, publishing, and social platforms changed? How had academic research libraries changed? Were they keeping pace within the broader environment? Within the university?

Kind of funny endless question. Would more people use the public library if it was a cupcakefact; if Jamie Oliver was in charge? But the idea is interesting: cpmbine and sponsor the library with a commercial attractive function.

Full Text Report: “The Big Shift: Public Library Strategies for Access to Information in Any Format” | LJ INFOdocket | Innovations With Potential to Impact Libraries | Scoop.it

The strategies are:

 

1.Create NEW value in the e-book supply chain—Look at how libraries can work with emerging opportunities and technologies in order to be proactive in understanding what can be done to enhance the chain from author to reader; this may include developing a shared platform for e-book discovery and lending.

 

2.Use data to articulate library value in the e-book supply chain—Understand and mine the aggregate data that libraries have that will help publishers, distributors and retailers understand the behavior of library users in aggregate.

 

3.Educate about the public policy issues around e-book access—Work with local, state and federal legislators, within the confines of individual library policies, to understand how legislators and community citizens might influence access to e-books.

 

4.Develop a common narrative—Develop common voice and messages about the importance of public libraries’ access to e-books that are influential with diverse set of players and influencers across the e-book ecosystem.

 

5.Work with additional partners—Continue to work with new partners to expand libraries’ ability to collaborate around access to e-books.

 

6. Coordinate and administer these plans—Create an administrative/consultative owner and action plan around the above strategies to ensure that
