Who Uses Libraries and Who Doesn’t: A Special Typology - Lee Rainie

Who Uses Libraries and Who Doesn’t: A Special Typology - Lee Rainie | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Today, Lee Rainie, director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project, is speaking at the American Library Association’s Annual Conference in Las Vegas. He’ll describe the Project’s new study about the different kinds of library users and non-users, based on research that uses segmentation models to show how technology, community orientation, and library activities affect the way people use libraries. The research also shows the variety of reasons why people do not use libraries. He will explore the implications of this work for library leaders as they explore new services and for the library community as it does advocacy. His slides are available here:

The Future of Libraries - 7 questions librarians need to answer - Lee Rainie (Slideshare)

"Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center Internet Project, runs through the seven questions libraries need to address as they consider future services and their role for their patrons and communities. He describes how project research about the changing role of technology in people’s lives affects the kinds of issues librarians need to address as they experience the disruptions of technology change."

[...]

1.  What’s the future of knowledge? 2.  What’s the future of pathways to knowledge (reference expertise)? 3.  What’s the future of public technology and community anchor institutions? 4.  What’s the future of learning “spaces”? 5.  What’s the future of attention (and its structural holes)? 6.  What’s the franchise?7: Where do you fit on the dashboard?"

 

Karen du Toit's insight:

Great questions to answer for the profession.

NPSIG Library 2.013 training session on library advocacy - recording available

NPSIG Library 2.013 training session on library advocacy - recording available | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"On Oct 19, NPSIG presented a training session on how to become a library advocate at the all-virtual Library 2.013 conference. Molly Schwartz, NPSIG co-convenor, shared some excellent strategies for promoting the profession, such as:

Have three LIS-related issues that you are passionate about that you can use to illustrate the relevance of libraries- bonus points if you can include metrics to prove your pointsBe clear, succinct, and specific in communicating the value of librariesTake every opportunity to promote and advocate for libraries- don’t just brush off opportunities to talk about libraries because you’re at a dinner party!

We are happy to share the recording of the session – both available in video and audio formats.  Enjoy!

Examining The Future Role Of Libraries at #LIBER2013 | LIBER

by Friedel Grant “A university is just a group of buildings gathered around a library.”

– Shelby Foote

 

With this quotation, Dr. Professor Peter Strohschneider, Chairman of the German Council of Science and Humanities, began his keynote speech at LIBER’s 42nd annual conference in Munich, Germany.

 

“The library is a place in which learning and research happens, and in which knowledge orders are created,” continued Strohschneider. “As Foote suggests, the library lies at the very heart of the academic experience. A university without a library is more or less unthinkable. This being the case, Foote’s perspective raises some important questions when we consider the future of academic libraries.”

 

Strohschneider went on to explain how some of the most notable research discoveries can be attributed to serendipity. These accidental revelations can, however, be thwarted by the current enthusiasm for modern search engines which only lead researchers to targeted results.

 

From this opening talk, the future of libraries was repeatedly explored over the three days of the conference – particularly in relation to the vast quantities of data currently being created and the library’s role in helping researchers to manage and sift through that data.

 

With two new scholarly articles being published every minute, Dr. Jan Velterop asserted that structures such as nano-publications would become an essential tool for researchers to identify relevant material. This would, in turn, require libraries and publishers to adjust to a new world where the scientific journal was valued more as a source of raw material, in which researchers could look for knowledge patterns, than something to read.

From introduction of presentation:
"We engineers love data and algorithms. They help create amazing things. But if and when we forget that people create data and that data can be improved by people, we will miss the promise of Big Data. It's time we all thought of this not as social vs algorithm but as humanrithm."

UTS Shapeshifters event on Creative Futures - by Mal Booth

"[...] the slides I used for a UTS Shapeshifters event on Creative Futures. I was talking about the future of academic libraries, particularly our own and our role in a creative digital future. 
I should explain more about the 3rd slide. The things listed on that slide are often forgotten or discounted in the blind pursuit of efficiency or traditional KPIs. For libraries, these things (i.e. delight, surprise, engagement, serendipity and curiosity) are at least as important and should not be forgotten, dismissed or left until later."

Library Analytics – Community Survey Results (Nov 2012) from joypalmer 

Survey on SlideShare here: http://www.slideshare.net/joypalmer/survey-library-analyticsfindings

 We wanted to get a better handle on how important analytics will be to academic libraries now and in the future, and what demand might be for a service in this area, for example, a shared service that centrally ingests and processes raw usage data and data visualisations back to local institutions (and this, of course, is what LAMP is exploring further in more practical detail).  We had response from 66 UK HE institutions, and asked a good number of questions. For example, we asked whether the following functions might be potentially useful:Automated provision of analytics demonstrating the relationship between student attainment and resource/library usage within institutionsAutomated provision of analytics demonstrating e-resource and collections (e.g. monographs) usage according to demographics (e.g. discipline, year, age, nationality, grade)Resource recommendation functions for discovery services

"The Inside Out Library: Scale, Learning, Engagement" Slides Explain How Today's Libraries Can More Effectively Respond to Change, by Lorcan Dempsey

"The Inside Out Library: Scale, Learning, Engagement" Slides Explain How Today's Libraries Can More Effectively Respond to Change, by Lorcan Dempsey | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Lorcan Dempsey, OCLC's Vice President, Research and Chief Strategist, presented these slides in his keynote on 23 January 2013 at the 21st annual BOBCATSSS Conference in Ankara, Turkey. In his presentation, Lorcan compared the  traditional "outside-in" library model and the new "inside-out" model, evolving as the library positions itself in a changing network environment. The traditional library was built on an "outside-in" model: information materials were brought to the institution and made available for use. This was appropriate in an age of information scarcity and high transaction costs. The only way effectively to interact with a large body of knowledge was to have it assembled close to the reader.


Download: http://www.oclc.org/content/dam/research/presentations/dempsey/insideout.pptx


Slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/lisld/the-inside-out-library

"Once the library assembled a collection and people came to the library to use it. Now, people build communication, workflows and behaviors around a variety of network resources. The library needs to think about how it is visible and relevant in those workflows and behaviors."
