The Wave – Social Spaces

Social Networking

Social Media


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

~18 months old

No FaceBook, MySpace

Library?


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Libraries will need to plan for and build

services that fit new researcher work

habits, with an emphasis on the

flexibility and remixing of their content

and services. ….

… The findings

are that researchers are adopting social

network technologies very fast and so

far they have done so on their own: the

library has effectively been bypassed.

Researchers use of academic libraries and their services. Swan A and Brown S

Starting an information search

Starting an information search

Only 2% of college students start their search at a library Web site.

Respondents were asked to indicate, from a list of 16 electronic resources, which they typically use to begin an information search.

Among total respondents, 84% of information searches begin with a search engine and 1% begin at a library Web site.

College Students


Trustworthiness of library sources vs search engines

Trustworthiness of library sources vs. search engines

Over half (53%) of college students indicate a similar trust of search engines as with library resources.

Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Now: Federated access to multi-institutional holdings with support for personal collection-building and sharing


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Some implications


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Get in the flow

Then: the user built their

workflow around the library

Now: the library must build its service

around the user workflow


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Compete for attention

Then: resources were scarce and attention

was abundant

Now: attention is scarce and resources

are abundant


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Website > workflow

Then: people consumed information

resources

Now: people construct digital identities

online:

gather, create, share


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Fragmentation = low gravitational pull


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Increase the

impact of libraries

Reduce unnecessary

fragmentation and

redundancies

Put libraries

at the point of need

Make the network work

for libraries

Build the library

brand on the network

Create systemwide

efficiencies


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Webscale …

A library experience which matches the experience of the web?


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Comprehensive

Short path from

discovery to fulfilment

Traverse from

personal to global

Machine interface:

Navigation

mmmm….


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

  • Unified workflows across materials?

  • Move to the network/group level?

    • Then

      • Cataloging/resource sharing

      • Electronic journals

    • Now

      • ?? Repository

      • ?? Offsite storage

      • ?? ERM

      • ??

      • ??

Part 3:

From discovery to disclosure


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

  • Local Discovery Environments

  • Shared Discovery Environments

  • Syndicated Discovery Environments

  • Leveraged Discovery Environments

Require

disclosure

Remember: focus on catalog


Local discovery environment

Local Discovery environment

  • Some (not necessarily aligned) motivations

    • Make data work harder

    • Integrate access to locally managed resources

    • Escape from ILS limitations

  • NCSU

  • Rochester

  • SOLR

  • Worldcat 2.0

  • Primo

  • Encore …


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Making data work harder: simple search followed by rich navigation and participation


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

Glancability


Some remarks

Some remarks

  • How does MARC data play with other data

    • Subjects, authors, ..

    • Historic investment in structure?

  • Duplicate cost?

  • Relationship to Metasearch?


Shared discovery environment

Shared discovery environment

  • Increase impact

    • Create gravitational pull

    • Aggregate demand and supply

  • Reduce costs


Some comments

Some comments

  • Integration of discovery to delivery becoming essential

  • A move to shared environments seems more likely with increased ability to ‘view’ different levels

  • Increased gravitational pull: greater use of collections

    • Growing evidence

  • Integration of materials?


Syndicated discovery experience

Syndicated discovery experience

  • Syndicate data or service or links


Syndicating services

RSS

Portlets

APIs, Protocol-based

Projects

Sakailibrary

Syndicating services

Not as rapid as one might expect?

Some remarks1

Some remarks

  • Syndication of data now common among data providers

  • Routing issue for non-unique materials

    • Resolution

    • Worldcat

  • Libraries exposing licensed content holdings interesting

    • Google Scholar


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

  • Service disclosure less common

    • APIs

    • Web services

    • Portlets

    • HTML fragments – ‘search boxes’

    • Toolbars

    • Widgets, extensions, …


The leveraged discovery experience

The Leveraged discovery experience

  • In some ways the most interesting

  • Use another discovery service to connect back to your resources

  • Compare to the situation with article databases and resolvers


Some remarks2

Some remarks

  • Some of these are toy-like now, but indicate a direction

  • Increased capacity to ‘sense’ structure (microformats) will improve ability.


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

So ….

  • The library website is not the front door

    • We need to connect multiple discovery environments to library fulfilment options

    • We need to put library resources in users’ workflow

    • We need to place library resources in places which aggregate demand


Library services in the flow the network reconfigures everything

So …

  • How to get to webscale

    • User environment

    • Management environment

  • A new balance between

    • Institutional development

    • Shared activities

  • How to most release value in research and learning lives of users
