Streamlined logistics and supply chain

The web is the information space

Amazoogle defines what is ‘on-web’

The texting generation

Rip, mix and burn

Network workflows emerging to help manage time spent in network

The library has to be in those workflows

Flattening requires more fluid communications – cf ILL

example developing metasearch
Example: developing metasearch
  • 2 nice presentations at the NISO OpenURL and Metasearch meetinghttp://www.niso.org/news/events_workshops/OpenURL-05-Agen-FINAL.html

“The aim is to provide service which fits into patterns of user behavior and abstracts away from the boundaries of database providers. The focus was on putting data where it was useful. The focus was not on putting the user in front of a 'one-stop-shop' which is how metasearch often seems to be presented. Both presentations also usefully see metasearch as a part only of a wider system of services which discover, locate, request and deliver resources of interest.” LD

slide18
‘2 clicks to full-text’

Integrate ‘find articles’ service with other services

‘Variety of pathways’

Metasearch appropriate databases from course pages

Innovative Uses of Metasearch: Rethinking Metasearch for a Better User Experience

David Lindahl & Jeff Suszczynski, U Rochester

‘Integrate library content into other campus systems’

‘Centerpiece of a web services oriented infrastructure’

Data presented nicely – what is is andhow available.

So ….
  • Turning libraries inside out: The library needs to be where the the user is – on the network
  • Flattening: The library will look towards systemwide efficiencies in organization by consolidating data, services and innovation at appropriate levels. Through what structures?
  • Ecology of (web) services: in each case, the library will work with a growing number of service platforms, and will need to stitch them together effectively.
