  • Everything digital the library produces in-house - Image collections - Digitization projects - Etc.


Libraries and holdings in a modern context
Libraries and holdings in a modern context

  • It should be possible for the library to:

  • Provide one-stop access to its entire scope - Local holdings - Licensed material - Digital content

  • Target its information universe at its users

  • Maintain its business processes in doing so

  • Maintain its identity and uniqueness

  • Make sure its holdings are available elsewhere


The obvious

- have all content in a single user interface


The not so obvious

- perform search and delivery in the same UI


Some things you could not see
Some things you could not see...

  • Tons of back office intelligence

  • Sophisticated ingest/publishing platform

  • Normalization

  • Interoperability between many systems

  • Hard work behind the scenes gives UI simplicity

  • Strong adherence to standards


Taking it to the next level

- Create discovery trails for the end users


Expose your holdings

- Lead your users back to you


Summary
Summary

  • Holdings are always local

  • Holdings that are not accessible can be noise

  • Libraries hold the key to access

  • Maintain a local identity in a global landscape
