efficiences

  • Aggregation of supply
  • Unified discovery
  • Low transaction costs
  • Aggregation of demand

Impact?

Synthesize-specialize-mobilize

libraries and the long tail dynamic
Aggregate supply?

1.7% of circulations are ILLs

Aggregate demand?

20% of collection accounted for 90% of use

(2 research libraries over ~4 years)

(60% of aggregate G5 collection owned by one library)

Each book its reader

Each reader his/her book

Print books
    • Preservation turn: Cost of management and preservation of print collection?
    • Mass digitisation: converting sharable materials to licensable materials?
    • Mass digitization and off-site storage present similar issues: selection and shared capacity move to network level?
slide22
Licensed resources
    • Libraries have selected from a published resource: scholarly record.
    • A global knowledge base?
    • Complete digital and print runs – at what level?
slide23
Digitized special collections
    • Relevance to local research and learning needs?
    • The biomedical question …
    • Aggregation and higher level services … at what level?
slide24
Web
    • Harvest and curate
    • Integrity: Versioning and citation
slide25
Institutional research and learning outputs
    • Differently motivated (coordinated asset management, scholarly communications, reputation management, disclosure, preservation, ..)
    • Domain specialties (high acronymic density)
    • Diversity: big data, e-portfolios, learning materials, …
    • Integrity: versioning and citation
    • Special collections of the future?

Structures, budgets,

skills, routine systems ….…

What is the scholarly

record?

Who is securing the

scholarly record?

Example: aggregate supply: transaction costs

Each arrow is a potential added cost:

In terms of attention or technical,

policy, business or service gaps.

Locked within end to end systems where the ends are in the wrong places!
  • Aggregate supply and demand at the network level.
  • Gravitational pull and smooth working.
  • Competition for attention.
slide35
Uncertainty about:
  • Service lines
  • Process model
  • Service/product architecture

Self assembled digital identity
