The changing nature of scholarly resources, knowledge access, rising expectations of end users and public services staff asked us to revisit opportunities for academic libraries as gateways, archives, place, buyers, universal digital library infrastructure, etc.
If we say that each media type requires new devices, equipment, computing power and others to create, process, manage, publish, and display its content, then the increasingly digital nature of library resources demand similar capability.
In the presentation, the answer to meet these challenges facing metadata services lie in 1) treating info as product; 2) providing support for a well-established, ubiquitous, pervasive, reliable, configurable, robust, and public accessible information infrastructure and computing environment, which integrate people, organizations, processes, data, information, and technologies in such a coherent manner that the objectives of a digital library can be performed, measured and controlled at the lowest meaningful and atomic level; 3) providing support for relevant, engaged, and customized information contents and services, which cover all resources, all vocabularies, and all languages to any given user at any time with critical mass in compliance with control objectives and process maturity measures for info systems and enterprise architecture defined by COBIT 5.0, TOGAF 9.0, and leveraged by library-specific IT industry; and 4) empowering the whole brain team using leadership, communication skills, project management, analytical skills, collaboration, and teamwork.
