  8. 8. 8 LUND UNIVERSITY Research Libraries in the digital era! • During the last decade libraries have changed more that in the last century • And it doesn´t stop here! • Libraries are re-inventing themselves in the digital era
  9. 9. 9 LUND UNIVERSITY The Library is no longer an island within the univesity • Libraries are expected to – be involved in development of teaching and support to learning – handle the institutional intellectual output (publishing) – engage in scholarly communication – be involved in research evaluation support – be efficient in their operations
  10. 10. 10 LUND UNIVERSITY The library as a work space • Researchers doesn´t visit the library premises anymore • Students use the library as a work place • Library space is a space for self-study, group work and learning
  11. 11. 11 LUND UNIVERSITY Figures – Swedish University Libraries 2002-2008 • Year 2002 2008 • Print journals 86k 54k • E-journals 119k 311K • Staff (FTE) 1759 1649 • Acquisition print mill. SEK 182 92 • Acquisition electr. mill.SEK 129 274

  14. 14. 14 LUND UNIVERSITY Efficient back office processes • Print journals and printed books – might be cheap to purchase , but – are expensive to handle • Purchasing e-journals & e-books in bulk reduces complicated selection and registration processes. • Sorry, but: • Library exchange programmes does not fit!
  15. 15. 15 LUND UNIVERSITY More content – easier access • Publishers and aggregators offer huge packages with e-journals and e-books • They come into the services of libraries with metadata and links to full-text • Information resources that do not comply with this tend to be forgotten - are and will be invisible!
  16. 16. 16 LUND UNIVERSITY Discovery and access is key • The library catalogue is no longer the key service/system – too complicated to use, obsolete, does not provide access to digital resources adequately • Users expect the one-stop-shop to information resources – regardless of type of media • Link-servers and discovery tools for easy discovery and delivery. • Information resources must comply – or else …
  17. 17. 17 LUND UNIVERSITY Library services and library users • Yesterday: – Users had to come to the library and use ”our” systems • Tomorrow: – Libraries have to be where the users are and library services have to be embedded in the users systems, platforms, devices and gadgets • Or become obsolete!
  18. 18. 18 LUND UNIVERSITY The EDIT ”collection” • Adequate dissemination of the ”EDIT-collection” requires that the journals, series and books are in the ”flow” – Have metadata, are indexed and are incorporated in the offers from aggregators (subscription agents, link-resolvers, discovery services) – If not – they will be forgotten and ignored.
  19. 19. 19 LUND UNIVERSITY What should be done I • Go digital! – plenty of Open Source publishing software available • Do a real calculation of all the costs associated with the existing print publishing model – including all the hidden costs – – and if appropriate as well the costs of handling incoming documents in library exchange programmes!
  20. 20. 20 LUND UNIVERSITY What should be done II • Consider the savings – No packaging costs, no postage, no stock costs etc – Consider the advantages: • Consider the advantages: – Your content will come into the flow side by side with the content from the major publishers – Increased visibility
  21. 21. 21 LUND UNIVERSITY What should be done III If you cannot do it yourself: – Go digital together! – the EDIT-collection online! – Don´t forget to digitize the back files!
  22. 22. 22 LUND UNIVERSITY Go Open Access! • Eliminate subscription management – invoicing, claiming etc. • Take advantage of Open Access infrastructure: – Global dissemination of metadata – increased visibility – more usage, more citations, more impact – With or without article processing fees • Just as well prepare: Research funders & universities are increasingly mandating Open Access!
  23. 23. 23 LUND UNIVERSITY Go Open Access – and do it in collaboration! • Create the ”EDIT-open access publishing consortium” or enter agreement with an Open Access Publisher – Co-Action, Igitur (Utrecht University) or … – Use Open Journals Systems and work with a university library – See to that journals are compliant with best practice for OA-journals • OASPA • DOAJ
