Libraries in the new network environment

The rich get

richer


Libraries in the new network environment

Then:the user built their

workflow around the library

Now:the library must build its service

around the user workflow


Libraries in the new network environment

Then:resources were scarce and attention

was abundant

Now:attention is scarce and resources

are abundant


Libraries in the new network environment

People are

entry points


Libraries in the new network environment

Enter what you're reading or your whole library—it's an easy, library-quality catalog. LibraryThing also connects you with people who read the same things.

Meet the world's largest book club. Find people with eerilysimilartastes.

Webscale …

A library experience which matches the experience of the web?


Libraries in the new network environment

Comprehensive

Short path from

discovery to fulfilment

Traverse from

personal to global

Machine interface:

scale with use

Navigation

Adaptive

Recombinant


Libraries in the new network environment

Part 2:

The catalog: from discovery to disclosure


Libraries in the new network environment

  • 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 local

  • Primo

  • Encore …


Libraries in the new network environment

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


Libraries in the new network environment

Glancability


Some remarks

Some remarks

  • How does MARC data play with other data

    • Subjects, authors, ..

    • Historic investment in structure?

  • Duplicate cost?

  • Relationship to Metasearch?

  • Social and scale


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


Libraries in the new network environment

  • Service disclosure less common

    • APIs

    • Web services

    • Portlets

    • HTML fragments – ‘search boxes’

    • Toolbars

    • Widgets, extensions, …


Libraries in the new network environment

Social?


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.


Libraries in the new network environment

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
