Research libraries evolving for new digital world

Research libraries evolving for new digital world | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Welcome to the modern research university library, where new skills and even new spaces are being developed to serve the needs of scholars, scientists, and students working in the digital age.

 

To keep research libraries relevant amid the rapid expansion of web-based information, Tech officials are using architects and student advisory committees to develop spaces and services that draw the campus into the library.

 

More and more print books and journals are shifting out of library buildings and are being replaced by digital classrooms, sequestered study rooms, and open areas for all kinds of group and individual work. Library collections are moving from paper to cyberspace and can be accessed on a growing list of electronic devices, from iPads to Kindles.

 

But moving into the future requires a lot of jumps, among them reconfiguring the library building floor by floor for new uses, diversifying the skills of librarians through hiring and training, and planning for how to curate and preserve traditional print and emerging digital resources.

I love it when the web starts to predict the future. Take a look at the slideshare - to be presented tomorrow. Now that is fast - access before the event occurs. Enjoy!

Ten recommendations for libraries to get started with research data management by LIBER

Ten recommendations for libraries to get started with research data management by LIBER | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
The LIBER E-Science working group has published its final report on research data management. LIBER installed the ‘E-Science working group’ in 2010 to investigate the role libraries can and should play in the field of E-Science. The group decided to focus on research data as it was felt to be the most urgent element of e-science that is of relevance to the community of (research) libraries. The group has held three workshops, the first dur-ing the LIBER-conference 2011 in Barcelona, the second during the IDCC 2011 conference in Bristol and the third and last one during the LIBER-conference 2012 in Tartu. The results of the first two workshops were used as a basis for compiling recommendations to the LIBER-community. The “10 recommendations for libraries to support re-search data management” were finalized and prioritized during the final workshop at the LIBER-conference in Tartu.
