  • Use of Digital Materials: Identifying users Information Behaviour of theResearcher of the Future http://www.jisc.ac.uk/media/documents/programmes/reppres/gg_final_keynote_11012008.pdf
    • User’s information behaviour is changing
    • rapidly. According to a global survey by OCLC on undergraduate students:
    • 89 percent of undergraduates use search engines to begin an information search (while only 2 per cent start from a library web site)
    • 93 per cent are satisfied or very satisfied with their overall experience of using a search engine (compared with 84 per cent for a librarian-assisted search)
    • undergraduates still use the library, but they are using it less (and reading less) since they first began using internet research tools
    • `books’ are still the primary library brand association for this group, despite massive investment in digital resources, of which students are largely unfamiliar
  • What Users Want? The 10 “ In ” rules. Integrity Integration Instant access Ingest of content Interaction USER Indefinite access Innovation Interpretation Information Interoperability
  • What users want?
    • Integrity : access to digital object as it has been created
    • Integration : different contents and file formats available from a single platform
    • Interoperability : different programmes and operating systems compatible with each other
    • Instant access : access to material, especially from mobile devices
    • Interaction : catalogues that provide Web 2.0 features (blogs, wikis, tags, content sharing, etc)
    • Information : comprehensive metadata for fast and reliable retrieval of content
    • Ingest of content : constant update of new digital content
    • Interpretation : digital content placed in relation to other items in the collection
    • Innovation : material to be presented in innovative ways
    • Indefinite access : digital objects to be preserved for posterity
