  • Al coda? The Dutch librarians’ vision on the future of music collections in public libraries Hanneke van der Veen & Frank Huysmans Library & Information Science, University of Amsterdam 7 July 2009
  • Public libraries in the Netherlands • NL: 16,5 mio inhabitants; 4 mio registered users (25%) • 2001-2007 nationwide process of ‘library renewal’ • Co-operation libraries, national, provincial and local governments • From appr. 600 to 200 library organisations • # of branches constant at appr. 1,080 • Merging library organisations means collection rationalisation: ‘de-doubling’ • Recent developments: investments in digital library
  • Music in Dutch public libraries • Centrale Discotheek Rotterdam (CDR) nationwide backoffice music supplier for majority of Dutch PLs • CDR buys all cds available on the Dutch market (2009 appr. 400,000) • LeenDirect: nationwide 135,000 cds (2005: 168,000) • Since 2005 digital lending/borrowing: Digileen (mainly classical music, jazz, independent pop/rock from NL) • 2006-2008: appr 450,000 tracks lent digitally
  • About the survey • Dutch librarians' perceptions on the future of music collections in public libraries • Digitisation audio and sheet music in PLs • The survey targeted 64 music divisions of PLs • 30 (47%) filled out surveys • These 30 have an audio music collection • 25 out of 30 also lend sheet music
  • Average number of lendings print sheet music per week • Maximum 50 lendings (40%) • 51 - 200 lendings (36%) • 201 - 500 lendings (8%) • 501 - 750 lendings (12%) • More than 750 lendings (4%)
  • Degree of satisfaction with number of lendings print sheet music per week • The majority is somewhat or very satisfied (54%) • How to stimulate the number of lendings? – Collaboration with (music)institutions – Improve search opportunities – Make a better presentation/marketing – Play along CDs / collected editions
  • Digital sheet music: a surplus value? • 70% of the responding libraries is of the opinion that digital sheet music has big advantages for the user: – Better search opportunities – Greater and wider supply – Better availability
  • Digitisation sheet music Digitisation is (still) in its infancy: • Digital sheet music on DVD / CD-ROM (20 %) • Linking to external sources with digital sheet music (16%) • Own digital collection via the internet (0%) • Own digital collection: not via the internet, but only available on the computer in the library (8%) • On request (0%) • None of the above (56%)
  • Bottlenecks digitisation sheet music Responding libraries mention the following bottlenecks: – No time – Legal bottlenecks – Financial bottlenecks – Technical bottlenecks – No demand – Competition
  • Use of Zoek&Boek • What’s Zoek&Boek (Seek&Book)?: users can request items from libraries in the whole country by clicking a button • Number of lendings Zoek&Boek per week: – 1 - 25 lendings (31%) – 0 lendings (45%) – Don’t know (14%) – Not (yet) connected to Zoek&Boek (10%) • Big price differences between libraries (provinces)
  • Perceptions of the future • Majority of responding libraries expect a decrease in physical lendings • But: majority (65%) is positive about the future • Many responding libraries think that they will supply digital sheet music in the future • High bandwidth – It depends on the size / diversity library(collection)
  • CODA • Decrease in physical lendings and bottlenecks • But also ... challenges – Majority is positive about the future – Expected rise of digital sheet music – Digital future starts NOW!
