  2. 2. Overview    21st  century  libraries   ~     A  mission   ~    Digital  strategies   ~  
  3. 3. 21st  century  libraries      ~  
  4. 4. What  can  be  said  about  2099?                 http://www.flickr.com/photos/derrypubliclibrary/3762251190   In  1911,  could  she  predict  the  Internet?  
  5. 5. Prediction  1:  World  Library                 http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2011/mar/04/profiles-­‐future-­‐arthur-­‐clarke-­‐review    Arthur  C.  Clarke  predicts  computer  based   universal  encyclopaedia  in  1962.  
  6. 6. Prediction  2:  Closed  Library               http://www.flickr.com/photos/holgalicious/5027577472/   “…  maybe  you  would  have  simply  banned  the   Internet  to  keep  the  libraries  open.”  
  7. 7. Literature  is  here  to  stay...                   http://www.flickr.com/photos/gorgmorg/9944210/  It  cannot  be  foreseen  that  literature  will  not  be   at  the  heart  of  scholarship  in  the  next  decades.  
  8. 8. ...but  new  things  come  on  top.                   http://newsinfo.iu.edu/pub/libs/images/usr/9584_h.jpg  The  world  of  knowledge  has  changed  radically   –  arriving  at  a  universal  encyclopaedia.

  10. 10. New  units  of  knowledge                 http://www.ukpmc.co.uk    Enhanced  publications  are  a  continuum  of   textual  resources  and  underlying  data.  
  11. 11. New  technology        Complex   knowledge   resources  can   now  be  modelled   and  linked  on   the  web  –  even   for  inferential   computing.    http://www.flickr.com/photos/hoonynoo/3092027765  
  12. 12. A  mission      ~  
  13. 13. A  21st  century  library  mission   know.uni-­‐x.org  To  build  the  most  complete    and  authoritative   web  representation  of  physical  and  digital   knowledge  resources  at  the  university  
  14. 14. Approach:  the  user  as  moving  target                 http://www.flickr.com/photos/yohann-­‐aberkane/2836258475    Knowledge  networking  is  a  dynamic  and   complex  task,  in  which  the  user  is  a  constant.    
  15. 15. Background:  McLuhan’s  Sensorium                   www.theparisreview.org/.../2011/01/mcluhan.jpg There  is  no  principal  difference  between   physical  and  digital  knowledge  resources   (‘media’)  –  both  are  the  extensions  of  human  
  16. 16. Digital  strategies      ~  
  17. 17. #1  Quality  of  service   Make  all  knowledge  resources  for   the  university  discoverable  digitally.                   http://www.flickr.com/photos/willowm/5224417965 Calculation  of  existing  knowledge  resources  at   the  university  and  percentage  of  coverage.  
  18. 18. #2  Understanding  users   Anticipate  the  human  being     behind  the  screen.                   http://www.flickr.com/photos/bwr/141929320/ Usage  statistics,  webometrics,  user   satisfaction  surveys.  
  19. 19. #3  Collection  development   Augment  the  unique  local   collections  with  digital  knowledge   resources.                   http://www.ehow.com/about_6760206_collection-­‐development-­‐medical-­‐libraries.html Number  of  physical  and  digital  resources   linked  and  their  stats.  
  20. 20. #4  Staff  skills   Learn  to  think  like     the  digital  user  thinks.                   http://www.flickr.com/photos/bpt/1365563763 Trainings  integrated  in  curricula;  number  of   collaborative  projects  &  amount  of  funding;   hours  of  staff  in  training.  
  21. 21. #5  Governance   Implement  transparent  and   effective     digital  knowledge  policies.                 http://www.provost.pitt.edu/documents/RDM_guidelines.pdf   Number    and  quality  of  policy  compliant   services  and  knowledge  resources.  
  22. 22. #6  Collaboration   Maximize  the  global  digital  footprint   by  acting  as  a  knowledge  hub.                   http://bellm.org/blog/wp-­‐content/uploads/2011/06/facebook_map_degree.png Number  of  MoUs,  service  contracts  as  well  as   human  and  machine  interface  procedure  calls.  
  23. 23. Conclusion     ~  
  24. 24. 21st  century  libraries   ~   Will  face  the  challenge  of  constantly  changing   digital  developments  in  the  21st  century.   ~   Can  follow  if  the  user  is  kept  in  the  focus.   ~  Build  an  augmented  knowledge  space  of  physical   and  digital  resources  for  their  users  on  the   web.   ~  Will  act  as  the  knowledge  hub  for  the  university.
