  • TRLN lent a total of 40,749 items among its members in 2010/2011 8,453 were direct borrows 23,250 were returnables (e.g. books) 9,046 were non-returnables (e.g. copies of articles) 2009/2010 = 43,138 2008/2009 = 29,748 2007/2008 = 24,065 2006/2007 = 22,408 2005/2006 = 24,806
  • Nobody would argue with those – the trick and the key is actually changing strategies and practices based on realities and likely scenarios. Way we meet these core roles is changing quickly.
  • * Last two slogans for TRLN have been TRLN Digital and TRLN United – in some cases digital content fits right into both of those slogans and in the case of e-books, it often does not – embraces the digital, but not the united – too many barriers.
  • We have this emerging issue – green = e-books and the green is getting bigger Particularly in the last two years, the pace has accelerated quite a bit and will only grow Add in individual demand-driven approaches and resource sharing of books is an increasingly splintered proposition

  • Faced with the choice to deliver a slice of content in a localized environment and ability to offer exponentially more content from a variety of sources – most of us, particularly users, will choose the latter to be able to get more content. Creates opportunities related to sense-making. Getting content to users in the way they want to consume it is one of our greatest challenges and opportunities. “ Web browser’s dominance is coming to a close. And the Internet’s founding ideology – that information wants to be free, and that attempts to constrain it are not only hopeless but immoral – suddenly seems naïve and stale in the new age of apps, smart phones, and pricing plans.” Apps are a risk – silo(ing) networked, web environment. Open resources impact ability to control and command discovery environments, content delivery, and data analysis. Increase in open resources and scaling while at the same time the predominant means of consuming digital content – desktops via open networks – is declining in favor or personalized devices and applications.

  • * Actually, I have one place that we might start – or perhaps this is too tough an area to begin – re-defining resource sharing and re-distributing those costs throughout the system to support the ecosystem of scholarly publishing.

    • Greg Raschke
    • North Carolina State University/TRLN
    • August 23, 2011
    Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
  • A Brief History of Time
    • Began collaborative development of research collections in 1930’s
    • Expanded in 1950’s
    • Formalized in 1980’s with MOU and Principles of Cooperation
    • Governance structure, formal committees, and central staffing/funding
    “ to marshal the financial, human, and information resources of their research libraries through cooperative efforts in order to create a rich and unparalleled knowledge environment that furthers the universities' teaching, research, and service missions.” Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
  • Value Equation
    • Value drives collaboration
    • One collection
    • In our DNA – budget, structure, culture, staffing, etc.
    • Services – direct borrowing, joint catalog, etc. to enable along with geographic proximity
    • Statistics
    Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
  • Extending the Value Equation
    • Scaling to digital environment with collaborative licensing (e-journals, e-books, databases, and all variety of content)
    • Joint catalog – scales up and beyond
    • Incorporate special and locally managed digital collections – move into the cloud as partners (LOCKSS, Hathi, etc.)
    Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
  • Short Story and the Vexing Challenge of E-books No sharing Sharing Profit No profit Copyright DRM Mechanisms to loan e-book Leakage Revenue streams Economic transference Demand-driven Short-term loans Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
  • From Anecdote to Data
  • From Anecdote to Data, cont.
  • From Anecdote to Data, cont.
  • Shaping the Future
    • Spearhead new models – shape evolving models to:
      • enable scholarship,
      • re-distribute funds more effectively,
      • leverage the benefits of e-content, and
      • re-position resource sharing in hybrid/ e-book environment
  • Shaping the Future, cont.
    • Contradiction of personal apps/devices and open resources
    • Bet on numbers of Amazon, Google, and Apple
    • Embrace nuances and connections of print and electronic
    • Holistic e-book strategy for TRLN – to get out-front
  • All We Want…
    • All he benefits of e-books with traditional benefits of print
      • Pay the same for e-books as we do for discounted paper print versions
      • No DRM
      • Unlimited ILL/resource sharing
      • Full ownership and archiving rights
    • No new taxes
    • Now – let’s negotiate!
