Fad

  • Fad – Here today - gone tomorrow

  • “A fad is defined as something that becomes very popular with a small group of people for a short period of time. It is unpredictable, short lived and without social, economic and political significance.”

  • (Vejlgaard, Henrik: Anatomy of a Trend.USA: McGraw-Hill, 2007).

Trend

  • Trend – Here today – here tomorrow

  • “A trend is something that becomes popular within mainstream society over a long period of time. It is the direction of a sequence of events that has some momentum and durability.” - Henrik Vejlgaard

  • “Our Trends are not fads. Our Trends endure. Our Trends evolve. They represent underlying forces, first causes, basic human needs, attitudes, aspirations. They help us navigate the world, understand what's happening and why, and prepare for what is yet to come.” - Faith Popcorn Brain Reserve

Why do we care l.jpg
Why do we care?

  • Everybody is talking about them - tons of library blogs on the topic – LITA (Library & Information Technology Association) division of ALA for example – tons of workshops and articles

  • A Google search on – library technology trends – turns up 3.6 million results or 3,000 results on “library technology trends”

CLiC WorkshopGrand Junction, CO


Why do we care10 l.jpg
Why do we care?

  • Need to consider overall trends – social, cultural, demographic, political, economic and technology

  • So we become irrelevant or design the wrong service

  • Important to stay up with trends and changes but not get caught up in them

  • But… trends must be considered in the context of our library & services

Consider the fundamental purpose of your library l.jpg
Consider the Fundamental Purpose of your Library

  • Why does your library exist in your community?

  • What services do you deliver to patrons and why?

  • Is your technology choice driven by your services OR is your technology driving your services?

Consider some cultural trends l.jpg
Consider Some Cultural Trends

  • Snack Culture

    • temporary and transient – characterized by trendwatching.com

  • Manifestations:

    • Food – Minnies in Chicago that serves small sizes, the rise of Tapas

    • Fashion – H & M which brings quick delivery of latest fashion at low-cost

    • Media – “snack-o-tainment” characterized by Wired Magazine – all about bite-sized content – YouTube, blogs…

How could this be applied to your current services l.jpg
How could this be applied to your current services?

  • Colorado Talking Book Library – podcasting newsletter with RSS feed

  • Denver Public Library –

    • “Book discussion Teen Online Book ClubEvery weekday morning the Teen Online Book Club will email you a portion of a book that takes about 5 minutes to read. After reading two or three chapters, you can finish the book by checking it out of the library. Each Monday, we'll feature new books. Sign up today and start reading with us tomorrow.”

Egonomics l.jpg
Egonomics

  • This is a trend from Faith Popcorn’s Brain Reserve

  • “To offset a depersonalized society, consumers crave recognition of their individuality.”

  • The “My Library” capability in integrated library systems speaks to this trend.

  • Think about how this can be applied to your library
