Do Libraries Meet Research 2.0 : collaborative tools and relevance for Research Libraries Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Do Libraries meet Research 2.0?
  • 2. or Collaborative Tools and their Relevance for Research Libraries Guus Van den Brekel, Central Medical Library, University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), The Netherlands. Member of European Association for Health Information and Libraries (EAHIL)
  • 3. The Problems? Everything 2.0 & O Research u t l i n Workflow & Collaboration e Implications for Research Libraries
  • 4. Problems? Library Disconnects & Bypassing the Library
  • 5. The Global Environment Changed … The web has become a global laboratory for communication and sharing
  • 6. What are Researchers looking for on the Web? ronNeylon/science-in-the- youtube-age-519472
  • 7. What are Researchers looking for on the Web? • Tools for improving their workflow, to gain efficiency • Communication, sharing, collaboration, dissemination research ideas and output • to possibly get bigger recognition and reward of their research output
  • 8. Tools for collaboration out there • Planning & Admin • Workflow • Data management • Communication • Sharing • Analysis, statistical • Publishing, (peer) reviewing • Preservation, archiving Unlimited …
  • 9. Research 2.0 : some aspects Communities & collaboration powered by web 2.0 Resources: creating, storing, organising, sharing, exchange, distribution, browsing, searching, re-use, enrich, re-create Faster, more efficient, greater competetiveness, repeatable, more productive … Enables open feedback and reviews of work A machine-understandable format allows others to take the data and analyze it independently
  • 10. Scientists are certainly looking for it…
  • 11. General Social Software • Blogs, Wiki’s, Social Networks i.g.Facebook • Web-based office tools, Google Docs • Sharing data, references, pictures, videos • Communication, in all sorts • Twitter? PloS • Virtual worlds, Second Life
  • 12. Virtual Worlds Strong in visualization, education, teaching, simulation, roleplay ánd worldwide collaborative projects
  • 13. By Scientists, for Scientists OpenWetWare
  • 14. Proteopedia
  • 15. NeuroCommons
  • 16. SciVee
  • 17. ResearchConnect
  • 18. OpenResearch
  • 19. But we also see others offering services… All kinds of parties research using web 2.0 to connect and integrate into the workflow of scientist and researchers.
  • 20. Commercially, focus on Scientists
  • 21. NaturePrecedings
  • 22. MyNetResearch
  • 23. Mendeley
  • 24. Biomedexperts
  • 25. 'What is happening in the world is bypassing university libraries’ Professor Peter Murray-Rust
  • 26. Reasons NOT to ignore Social Networks and the tools offered • Efficiency possibilities • Build professional communities – Research – Management • Build learning communities • Build sharing communities • Build community support through outreach Online Social Networks in Healthcare & Libraries PF Anderson, Emerging Technologies Librarian, Health Sciences Libraries,
  • 27. More Reasons …. • Connection, communication, collaboration, consultation • Discuss & share information (articles, photos, videos, cases, data, methodologies) • Q&A, rapid response (sometimes), serendipitous discovery • Global, international connections & opportunities • Find employment & research opportunities • Emerging trends, topics, medications, treatments, insights in your field Online Social Networks in Healthcare & Libraries PF Anderson, Emerging Technologies Librarian, Health Sciences Libraries,
  • 28. Do we see the libraries look for it as well? • The question is not whether the shift is going to happen, but how fast? • It will change the behaviour of researcher, new ways of thinking and operating; we should adapt
  • 29. “(Get) Into The Workflow” Lorcan Dempsey, OCLC And get to the people!
  • 30. Network level Integrated Personal workflow local consumer Workflow Google, … environment? RSS, toolbars, .. Library web presence Resource Institutional sharing, … Workflow Portals, CMS, IR, … Consumer environments library Management environment … Bought Licensed Faculty& Digitized Aggregations students Source: Lorcan Dempsey, CIC 2007 Resource sharing
  • 31. There are the Virtual Research Networks (VREs) • JISC VRE • MS Sharepoint • MyExperiment • D4Science • DARIAH
  • 32. Key Points • Communication between researchers and librarians • Play a role in the exchange and sharing of research-based information in social network technologies • Re-define the library, services, it’s systems, to reach: Visibility, Findability, Searchability and Accessibility • Branding and marketing the library: embed & integrate • Libraries should collaborate, communicate, cooperate, facilitate, support learning & research
  • 33. ScHARR Library Public Page (Netvibes)
  • 34. Strategical Implications • Developing the supporting infrastructure for – Creation – Data management – Communication • Re-focus policy Staff development & expertise Soft-, hardware choice • By collaboration and partnership with other organizational parties, but also externally • Embedded libraries • Collaborative libraries
  • 35. -There is a “battle” going on for the Scientists - “They got their work and data, now they want the people as well .. We should be there first … and get them back quickly”
  • 36. Thank you for your attention! Guus van den Brekel Email: / Twitter: digicmb Blog: Netvibes: Slideshare: Facebook: Linkedin: Second Life: Namro Orman (see for bookmarks:
