  • If history has anything to teach us, it is not to fear the future. No other public service profession has been as quick to adapt to technological change. Imagine a Rip Van Winkle librarian falling asleep in 1969 and waking up today. He would be amazed at how much more powerful catalogers and reference librarians are with computer keyboards at their fingertips and awestruck at how quickly a patron in Nome can get a book from almost anywhere. After hunting in vain for the card catalog, he would be completely blown away by the keyword searching capability of the OPAG and scratch his head at DVDs, audio playaways, and videogames, but be warmly reassured by shelves of books and children's librarians wielding puppets and playing with felt boards. Most of all, he would be overwhelmed by the crowd of patrons using the library for a hundred different purposes.
  • But change as a law of nature is very apparent in the present library environment. Rapid technological developments affect almost every activity in the library. This was made more apparent by the discussions and arguments about a “paperless society” as it took a considerable amount of space in a number of publications. Clearly, this is the path taken by many libraries when they began allocating separate funds for developing non-print and electronic collections. Sandler, in 2009 shared this perspective about libraries:   “ Libraries are not about books, they were, are, and will be about facilitating, communication across space and time. Books have been a way to do that historically, but today there are other, often better, ways to accomplish this. Libraries need to become facile at supporting all sorts of media, and they must continue to embrace the new, or face the consequences of losing relevance to the mainstream culture.”   Overtime, libraries have evolved in the context of their institutional roles, financial resources and format inclusions. In terms of collection, Gorman in 2010 gave a discerning summary on the evolving nature of library collection:   “ The definition of a library collection has expanded over the last 25 years to comprise at least four levels: locally owned physical documents, physical documents owned by other libraries but available through ILL; purchased or subscribed to electronic documents and “free” electronic documents.”   These levels present several major developments in the library, i.e. establishment of resource-sharing networks, interlibrary systems, union catalogs, the exponential rise on the use of digital and online materials for education and scholarship and the growing popularity of open access.
  • A digital library can link e-learners to library catalogues, licensed journal databases, electronic book collections, selected internet resources, electronic course reserves, and tutorials, and to forums for communication and interaction with others. Digital library permits e-learners to access library and networked resources and services anytime and anywhere that an Internet connection and computing equipment are available. support the range of goals that are already alive in the classroom, rather than simply modify information. How can digital libraries and their use open up an e-learner’s inquiries, rather than bring them to closure? How might they enhance an e-learner’s critical thinking, rather than dulling it? How might they assist in teaching e-learners search processes, rather than mystifying or suppressing this instruction? Without asking the real value of using digital libraries or any educational technologies, educators risk failing to see their transformative potentials, and at worst, they risk importing a contrary set of values that are embedded in such systems from their histories in other locations. For digital libraries, such an implicit value could be summarized as “complete information access leads to better education”, just as it may lead to better academic research and work. However, the many educators and librarians who have stacked unused textbooks and shrink-wrapped software packets in the corners of their rooms know that access is only a beginning. E-learners’ use of different technologies, whether they are traditional materials or digital resources available via the internet, will be informed by and in turn will help construct the kinds of values that retain significance in education. As long as the educator and the assignment follow the status quo, any related source of information is likely to be a smart choice by e-learners according to their assessment of what to do for Digital libraries and e-learning
  • In the e-learning environment, digital libraries are considered as a federation of library services and collections that function together to create a digital learning community. The range of supported materials includes curricula and courseware materials, lectures, lesson plans, computer programs, modelling and simulation, intelligent tutoring systems, access to remote scientific instruments, project based learning, tools, results of educational research, scientific research reported both formally in journals or informally in websites, raw data for student activities, and multimedia image banks.
  • Hybrid libraries are mixes of traditional print material such as books and magazines, as well as electronic based material such as downloadable audio books, electronic journals, e-books, etc. Hybrid libraries are the new norm in most public and academic libraries. [ citation needed ] It seems that the term "hybrid library" was first coined in 1998 by Chris Rusbridge in an article for D-Lib Magazine . [1] Hybrid libraries evolved in the 1990s when electronic resources became more easily available for libraries to acquire for public use. [ citation needed ] Initially these electronic resources were typically access to material distributed on media such as CD-ROM or searches of specialised databases. OCLC helped push libraries towards acquiring digital resources by providing a centralized technology resource for participating libraries. Now, with the widespread availability of digital content, it includes Internet resources and documents which are online, such as eprints. Hybrid libraries are the new norm for many archivists as well. Digitization has changed the way archivists have gone about preserving historical items. Archivists are now using digital technology to preserve items that were once only preserved by things like microfiche. Archivists now use things like digital imaging which make it possible for researchers to see historical items online. The emergence of the hybrid library has put a new emphasis on copyright issues for many libraries. The complicated and changing copyright laws in both the United States and the European Union have made it a challenge for many libraries to make sure their patrons are using the digital items lawfully. Hybrid libraries need staff that are trained in helping patrons navigate the vast amount of information available in the digital age. Librarians working in hybrid libraries have training in electronic media as well as the traditional print forms.
  • Current practices present diverse viewpoints in describing advantages and disadvantages, accessibility and ease of doing search, budget issues, intellectual property rights and copyright, selection criteria, archiving and preservation and electronic resource management (ERM).
  • Fundamentals of Collection Development and Management authored by Peggy Johnson and published in 2009 and Collection Development Issues in the Online Environment, edited by Di Su of the City University of New York and published in 2007 provided thorough discussions on how to manage and survive the dilemma that is electronic resource. These are just two of the vast number of publications dealing mostly with the management issues of having electronic resources in the library. Digital resource and the Internet contributed a vast amount of sources for research and are being made available in electronic format. The co-existence of both print and electronic still characterizes many libraries. Continuing subscription to either formats provide the lifeline to sustain scholarly communication and research. Paperless library remains a topic for debate and dealing with electronic materials is a persistent issue among all types of libraries.
  • General criteria to consider when you are involved in making selection decisions include: Subject matter What subjects do you need to collect in to build up your collection? How suitable is the subject, style, and reading level of an item for your user community? How accurate is the information? Construction quality Is the item well made and durable? For books and periodicals, does the item have good print quality? Is the paper of appropriate quality? For audio-visuals, will the item stand up to multiple use? Potential use What will the demand for the material be? What level of use justifies its acquisition? How relevant is the item to the community? Relation to the collection How will the item strengthen the library's collection? (Will it fill a gap, complement something that's already there, or provide an alternative opinion to what is already covered?) Are the materials available elsewhere in the community? Is there fair coverage of opposing viewpoints? Bibliographic considerations What is the reputation of the publisher? Is the type of publication and the format appropriate for your library? What is the reputation and/or significance of the author? What do the book reviews say about the item? Cost All libraries have limited budgets and have to make very careful decisions about how to allocate these funds during the selection process. One approach to the selection process is to rank the materials desired for selection. More expensive items that are ranked highly might still be purchased, but then the library would probably be unable to purchase as many items. These decisions can be difficult to make, but prioritizing patron needs is always a good way to start.
  • Purpose, Scope and Audience. What is the purpose of the periodical, what does the periodical actually include, and who is the intended audience? This can be determined by examining the table of contents, the range of writers, authors, and editors, and the vocabulary used in the articles. Accuracy. How accurate is the material in the periodical? It should be factually correct and relatively objective. This can be determined by evaluating the writers, the publisher, and the subject matter. For more technical periodicals, an expert opinion is a good idea. Local Interest. Does the title have some interest to the local community? Format Issues. What is the quality of the printing and the paper? Are illustrations of good quality? Do there seem to be more ads than text? Indexing. Is the title indexed in a service to which the library subscribes? Cost. How much does the subscription cost? Will back issues be needed? If so, how much will it cost to bind them or obtain them on microform? Demand. Will a title be used enough to justify subscription? Availability. Is the title readily available through interlibrary loan or from a library with which you have a resource sharing agreement?
  • a generic term that includes microfilms and microfiche a format not liked much by so many people because of the perception that it is very difficult to use the format that libraries resort to so that they can save storage space a good format for materials that are seldom used also good alternative format for rare and archival materials.
  • 16 mm or 35 mm film to motion picture standard is used, usually unperforated. Roll microfilm is stored on open reels or put into cassettes. The standard length for using roll film is 30.48 m (100 ft). One roll of 35 mm film may carry 600 images of large engineering drawings or 800 images of broadsheet newspaper pages. 16 mm film may carry 2,400 images of letter sized images as a single stream of micro images along the film set so that lines of text are parallel to the sides of the film or 10,000 small documents, perhaps cheques or betting slips, with both sides of the originals set side by side on the film.
  • The amount of your budget that is allocated for audiovisual materials The durability of the item The visual and audio quality of the item The ease of repairing the item if it is damaged and the procedures for handling damage caused by patrons. The ease of repairing the item when it is damaged Type of equipment required The likelihood that the audiovisual technology is long-lasting
  • Still pictures Filmstrips usually 16mm or 35mm; a series of single-frame still photographs on a strip of film a somewhat dated format more commonly still in existence in some children’s section of public libraries come in either sound or silent format Slides photographic slides typical of the family collection of 35mm slides mountings can be of paper, plastic, metal or glass most commonly found in special libraries with scientific, medical and art museum work collections Transparencies overhead transparencies: text or diagrams on cellophane sheets that are projected with a magnified light designed to aid in the presentation of graphic materials to small and medium-sized groups publishers often include these based on or using illustrations from their books Flat pictures include paintings, posters, postcards, photographs and other pictorial materials school libraries often include pictures from magazines and other sources museums and college libraries often have extensive collection of posters usually housed in special collections little bibliographic control scanning technologies provides control and order
  • Points to consider: Scale Type of projection The information represented The amount of detail and its accuracy The use of color and symbols Use and placement of nomenclature
  • Audio-recordings have been a very important commodity for library collections throughout most of this century and include musical productions, books on tape, and language learning, as well as lectures, instructions, and inspirational messages. They are distributed in various formats, although the most common today are cassette tapes and compact discs (CDs). While not yet widespread in many libraries, VCD and DVD technology is starting to become more prevalent and maybe important for audiovisual collections in the future. Some of the most popular audio materials in libraries are spoken books-on-tape or "talking books." These may also be available in CD format. Also useful are language learning cassette tapes. If your community includes many bilingual or multi-lingual people, you may consider acquiring language cassette tapes that facilitate language learning in English, Spanish, and other languages of local interest.
  • Printed Music Music sheets and scores (full size or miniature) Problem of sourcing and bibliographic control Models, realias and dioramas Cost and storage are some of the limiting factors in including these formats in the collection Some questions to consider: Are objects less than life size reproduced in an appropriate scale? Is the scale sufficient to illustrate the necessary details? When horizontal and vertical scales must be different, is the distortion so great as to create a false impression? Are the colors accurate? Are the objects durable enough to withstand the type of handling they will receive? Games Some public libraries would include games and toys to attract new users, children especially Games used for simulated teaching
  • Digital libraries offer a wide range of new access opportunities that are absent in the traditional environment. However, the desire for physical browsing, the need for immediate help from a “real person” and the desire for communal space for learning-make a case for the importance of the traditional service environment.
