The University in Transition: Summary and Implications of the Six Trends

The University in Transition: Summary and Implications of the Six Trends | Libraries | Scoop.it
David Parker summarizes the "six major trends in higher education" and their implications for libraries, publishers and content providers, and university IT departments. The key themes running through these six trends are open content, greater reliance on data analytics, “flipped” spaces (libraries and classrooms) and products, pricing models, and distribution strategies tied to user demand. I don’t have a crystal ball, but I offer the following observations about how universities, their libraries and companies that support universities and libraries can think about these forces as they plan for the near future.

They Lend What??? The Magical World of Unique Lending Libraries

They Lend What??? The Magical World of Unique Lending Libraries | Libraries | Scoop.it
by Sandra Hoyer, Head Editor, INALJ Washington They Lend What??? The Magical World of Unique Lending Libraries I I have always been fascinated by unusual lending libraries and the spectacular items they have for users. I think libraries (whether private, public, academic or special) in general could truly benefit from taking an untraditional approach to lending what their users may need, whether that be therapy dogs or art.

library marketing | Designer Librarian

library marketing | Designer Librarian | Libraries | Scoop.it
Posts about library marketing written by designerlibrarian. Libraries are not exactly known for being awesome at marketing, though I think there are some libraries (esp. public libraries) that do a pretty good job of it. The problem I see is that libraries too often focus on place and product in their campaigns. The library is a great place…to study…to collaborate…to hang out…to inspire creativity. Or the the library has great resources (i.e. products)…e-books…databases…games…movies…bestsellers. What about people? How often do libraries market their knowledgeable staff, their greatest asset? Not often enough in my opinion. And that’s what Youtility is all about.
