      • Susan Choy. Nontraditional Undergraduates: Findings From the Condition of Education 2002. NCES: Washington, D.C.: 2002 Chos;s study found 30-50% of nontraditional students indicated that they had limited access to the library.

      • 3.NSSE. 2004 National Survey of Student Engagement: Pathways to Collegiate Success. P, 6. Study for Student Engagement reported that Schools which “channel student time and energy towards effective educational activies [did] two things very well [1] they teach students early on how to take advantage of institutional resources for their learning [and 2] they make available to students what they need, when they need it.

8. Sustainability of ANTS

"[T]he sustainability of OERs - in a fashion that renders them at once both affordable and usable - requires that we think of OERs as ... part of a larger picture, one that includes volunteers and incentives, community and partnerships, co-production and sharing, distributed management and control.“ 5

Looking for answers

Looking for answers…

ACRL 2009 Strategic Thinking Guide for Academic Librarians in the New Economy

Report delineates series of strategic questions for libraries that include:


Looking for answers1

Looking for answers…

  • “What new organizational structures are necessary to support emerging client demands given new fiscal constraints? How can libraries creatively redesign functions and services to realize cost savings…? How will the work of librarians change?”

  • How will libraries create Web-based products and services that can compete with commercial products sold directly to students and faculty? Should libraries compete or collaborate in this arena?


Looking for answers2

Looking for answers…

  • “How can Libraries develop a meaningful electronic presence as students shift away from static web sites….How can libraries more effectively create awareness about their content so users can discover it?”

  • “How can the library demonstrate impact and value by developing or expanding programs to support student form low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds?


Look no further ants

Look no further… ANTS!

“Charles Lowry, executive director of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), calls on higher education to “build our digital infrastructure,” by putting library, museum, and related collections online through training 10,000 people to scan books, manuscripts, journals, and other materials in library collections.”


Look no further ants1

Look no further… ANTS!

  • “Institutional repositories (IR) and other data and information resources need to be developed and expanded. According to ARL, “repository services are moving beyond pre-print and post-print dissemination to include a wide range of content types, clients, and service needs.”


Look no further ants2

Look no further… ANTS!

“There is increased use and expectation of distributed or diffused content, in addition to opportunities to create and share content. This can be seen in the increased use of syndication (such as RSS feeds), social networking sites, and the shift to interactivity on the Internet. Students, staff, faculty, and departments will increase their use of social networking tools.”
