Background Libraries are the storehouse of knowledge as they maintain the book and other knowledge resource available - mostly in printed form. However, with the advent of digital technology and Internet connectivity, the library scenario is changing fast.

The Ephemeral Ebook Library

The Ephemeral Ebook Library | Libraries | Scoop.it
Sharon E. Farb and Sean Johnson Andrews
Ashok Kumar's insight:

just as Amazon can randomly delete the contents of your Kindle, ebook vendors that serve public and academic libraries can randomly remove contents from their holdings — or increase their price by 300% in the middle of a library’s budget cycle, which may have the same effect. For ebooks libraries buy, they have few rights attached to them. Despite being a great deal more expensive than consumer ebooks, many licenses for academic ebooks attempt to limit the traditional first sale rights that make the academic library possible

This could be Ireland’s library of the future – but why the controversy?

This could be Ireland’s library of the future – but why the controversy? | Libraries | Scoop.it

The Lexicon is costing €36.6m to build. In an interesting move, the 6,520m2 building – which will be the central library for the county of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown – will be called the Dlr Lexicon, which reflects the fact that it offers more than a library.

It’s also intended to be a cultural centre, with a café (the tenant is yet to be decided on), a gallery, a small auditorium space, crafts spaces, a local history library, 100 parking spaces and a children’s library.

It’s hoped that this mix of facilities will attract more than 50,000 people to Dun Laoghaire every year.

Rather than being detached from the rest of the town, it is supposed to draw people into the centre of Dun Laoghaire, offering them a space to explore and enjoy before making their way into the town.

Public libraries have to prove they are delivering value to their customers to justify the money spent on them.  There is nothing different about this library to any other library in the world.  Staff & management will need to be on their game.

Doug Mirams's curator insight, July 21, 5:23 AM

Planned library includes a Scandinavian-inspired "taster" area, "unobtrusive and relaxed", described by thejournal.ie
where  "people sitting around reading newspapers, flicking through a recommended paperback, or popping in for 10 minutes respite on a busy day".

The e-book phenomenon: a disruptive technology

The e-book phenomenon: a disruptive technology | Libraries | Scoop.it
The e-book and its associated technology have emerged as a disruptive technology over the past ten years. The aim of this paper is to discuss some of the consequences of this development, based on the work of the e-books in Sweden research project. To explain the impact of the e-book phenomenon we use Winston’s theory of technological innovation, with particular reference to the ‘supervening social necessity’, the combination of factors that turns an innovation into a marketable product. As a result of the technology all aspects of the production, distribution and use of books is affected. The e-book is having different effects in different sectors and in different parts of the world: rapid development in the USA, slower in France and Japan; rapid development in academic libraries, slower development in public libraries, from country to country. These differences suggest that one supervening social necessity may be needed to explain the divergencies. There is a great deal of exaggeration of the impact of the e-book, based mainly on its influence in the USA. Development in other countries is taking place more slowly and differently and in ‘small language’ countries like Sweden, the pace of development, except in academic libraries is likely to be slow.
