  7. 7. Strategy Going Forward
  8. 8. Strategy Going Forward — Context “While predictions of radical change in library and information services are by no means new, a confluence of shifts in technology, changing user demands, and increasing budget pressures are now forcing academic libraries to either adapt or risk obsolescence. The library’s traditional role as a repository for physical books and periodicals is quickly fading, with important implications for space utilization, resource acquisition, and staffing.”Redefining the Academic Library: Managing the Migration to Digital Information Services, Advisory Board Company 2011. Available at:http://www.theconferencecircuit.com/wp-content/uploads/Provosts-Report-on-Academic-Libraries2.pdf

  12. 12. 1. Information Literacy/Research Skills"Wikipedia is like everything else. Its as reliable asyour critical-thinking skills. Youre responsible forwhat you read.”— Justin Knapp
  13. 13. Justin Knapp, first Wikipedia editor to reach one million edits
  14. 14. 1. Information Literacy/Research Skills• Finding information on the Web is easy, evaluating it is hard• Students, especially beginning students don’t understand scholarship
  15. 15. 1. Information Literacy/Research Skills Strategies• Continue significant engagement with beginning students, work on digital learning tools• Increase engagement with upper level students• Demonstrate connection between information/research skills and persistence and academic success
  16. 16. 2. Collections• Changing approaches to collections will be difficult because collections are central to the way we all think about libraries• Much library practice and library values have been based on past approaches to collections
  17. 17. 2. CollectionsTwo drivers of change: 1. Open Access 2. Change from Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time
  18. 18. 2. CollectionsTwo drivers of change: 1. Open Access — Journals 2. Change from Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time — Books
  19. 19. Open Access“Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free ofcharge, and free of most copyright and licensingrestrictions. OA removes price barriers (subscriptions,licensing fees, pay-per-view fees) and permissionbarriers (most copyright and licensing restrictions).”– Peter SuberPeter Suber, “Open Access Overview,” at: http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/overview.htm
  20. 20. Open Access• Open Access is a disruptive innovation (Clayton Christensen) – New technology – New business model – Starts out as an inferior product – Improves over time and its advantages make it dominant – Adoption follows an S-curve not a straight lineDavid W. Lewis, “The Inevitability of Open Access,” forthcoming in College & Research Libraries September 2012.Preprint available at: http://crl.acrl.org/content/early/recent
  21. 21. Open Access Figure 3: Pace of Substitution of Direct Gold OA for Subscription Journals (normal scale) 100.0% 90.0% 80.0% 70.0% 60.0% 50.0% 40.0% 30.0% 20.0% 10.0% 0.0% 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025 Laakso, et. al. Estimates S-curve Extrapolation Based on 2000-2009 S-curve Extrapolation Based on 2005-2009David W. Lewis, “The Inevitability of Open Access,” forthcoming in College & Research Libraries September 2012.Preprint available at: http://crl.acrl.org/content/early/recent
  22. 22. From January 1, 2012 to August 10, 2012 14,919 Articles Published
  23. 23. eLife is a researcher-driven initiative for the very best in science andscience communication. We promote rapid, fair, and moreconstructive review. We will use digital media and open access toincrease the influence of published works. We commit to servingauthors and advancing careers in science. At eLife,Publishing is just the beginning.
  24. 24. If we can set a goal to sequence the humangenome for $99... then why not $99 forscholarly publishing?PeerJ is an Open Access publisher of scholarly articles. We aim todrive the costs of publishing down, while improving the overallpublishing experience, and providing authors with a publication venuesuitable for the 21st Century.
  25. 25. Implications of Open Access1. As more journals become open access, the library will have to pay for fewer journals2. Escape from the grip of monopolistic publishers3. Libraries in their role of information providers, won’t be part of the system
  26. 26. Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time• In a typical research library 50% of the books that are purchased never circulate• In the past this made sense as an insurance policy
  27. 27. Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time• Now nearly any book can be purchased at any time with very quick delivery• Why purchase before the user needs an item if you don’t have to?• Since past use is the best predictor of future use, books users “select” are likely to get use in the future
  28. 28. • Print books delivered nearly as quickly as digital files • Digital readers nearly as good as print booksFor what might come next, see: Mike Matas, “A Next-Generation Digital Book,” TED Talk, March 2011. Available at:http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/mike_matas.html
  29. 29. Implications of Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time1. Aggressively work at not buying books that will never be used2. Book purchases will decline3. But impact on readers will be minimal1. Will impact scholarly publishers by reducing revenue, they don’t see this coming
  30. 30. 2. Collections Strategies1. Hold journal expenditures constant2. Move to patron-driven-acquisition for e- books this year for both paper and electronic books3. Except for some new funding for new programs, the materials budget should be able to remain at current levels
  31. 31. 3. Space• Use of library space by students has increased• Use of library services and collections by students has declined• The opportunity cost of library collections is high
  32. 32. Opportunity Costs of Print Collections $5.00 to $13.10 $28.77 $50.98 to $68.43Life cycle cost based on 3% discount rate. From Paul N. Courant and Matthew “Buzzy” Nielsen, “On the Cost of Keeping a Book,”in The Idea of Order: Transforming Research Collections for 21st Century Scholarship, CLIR, June 2010, available at:http://www.clir.org/pubs/abstract/pub147abst.html
  33. 33. 3. Space Strategies1. Continue to redevelop library space to create better, more diverse, space for non- classroom academic work2. Repurpose current stack space for other uses, probably 5K sq. ft. in the next five years3. Reconfigure library staff spaces as functions change
  34. 34. 4. Supporting Research• Librarian research support — literature searching, etc.• Preserving the results of research – Institutional Repository https://scholarworks.iupui.edu/ – Electronic Theses and Dissertations – NFS Data Mandate
  35. 35. Dr. Robert White, Department of Sociology studies Irish Republicanism
  36. 36. 5. Scholarly Communication• Need to help faculty and students, especially graduate students, understand and take advantage of new scholarly communications vehicles
  37. 37. 5. Scholarly Communication• Place for advice on rights• Advocate for more open scholarly communication
