  • 12. Core Operations  Decreased emphasis  Fewer physical books purchased – less processing  Cataloging has been mostly outsourced or automated  Reference has been reorganized  Students and staff w/ librarians on call Source: http://www.wou.edu
  • 13. Core Operations  Increased emphasis  Instruction    In-class, online, video, interactive, mixed, flipped Looking to be comprehensive across the curriculum Systems – increasing demands of online presence     Complexity and mutability of competing vendor platforms Evolving interactive web technologies Access needs of archives, digital collections, IR Merged cataloging with metadata, access, & acquisitions Source: http://www.wou.edu
  • 14. Ascending Operational Roles  Publishing - Digital Commons  Initiated BePress  Digital collections  Peer reviewed student journal  Archives  As unique digital collections are discovered, archives expands  Hired an archivist  Open Access, Data Curation & IR  Planning stages Source: http://www.wou.edu
  • 15. Personnel Budget FY2003-13  Static budget for library operations personnel   Fluctuations are from non library functions that have come and gone from the library (e.g. Print Shop, Teaching Resource Center, Video Studio) Responding to changing library operations must be accomplished with current personnel budget
  • 16. Shifting via Attrition  Need librarians to cover expanding services— Instruction, Digital Commons, IR, Data Curation, Archives, Publication    Converted two vacant staff positions to librarians – instruction and systems/IR Converted a vacant tech services librarian position to an archivist/digital commons librarian Merged tech services with systems/collection development librarian position
