How will education libraries best serve their communities in 2015?
Why do we need to organise information more effectively? How do we incorporate the evolving semantic web environments? In a world of API and big data, libraries (and in particular school libraries) are faced with a significant ‘conceptual’ challenge. The new RDA cataloguing standard will substantively influence and then change information organization, focusing on users, access and interoperability. Search interfaces will be the key. We’re not dealing with records anymore. We are working with interrelated nodes of data. Are you prepared?

  • 2. This is our context! .... our augmented environments reality Multi-literate, multi-device curriculum environments Natural user interfaces & game-based learning Expanding ‘services’ & collaborative spaces New information pathways & cloud environments Accessible and searchable collections Critical thinking and authentic problem solving Socially networked & collaborative Web 2.0 Copyright, creative commons, digital citizenship Horizon Report K-12 http://www.nmc.org/pdf/2012-horizon-report-K12.pdfJUDY O’CONNELL CHARLES STURT UNIVERSITY
  • 3. This is our context! .... our library services reality The spaces and places of libraries are physical and virtual, adopting and adapting Web 2.0 media tools to enhance and envelop school learning communities into a series of globally powered learning commons—dynamic, collaborative 21st century library environments!JUDY O’CONNELL CHARLES STURT UNIVERSITY
  • 4. Degree of Information Connectivity An introduction to the Semantic Web http://goo.gl/Wudfz Semantic Web Semantic Web of knowledge of intelligence Web of Web of people & information social information
  • 5. Google creates the illusion of accessibilityHow does search impact the way students think and the way we organise information access? http://www.google.com/insidesearch/searcheducation/index.html http://www.wolframalpha.com/educators/ cc licensed ( BY NC SA ) flickr photo by fatboyke (Luc): http://flickr.com/photos/fatboyke/2984569992/ JUDY O’CONNELL CHARLES STURT UNIVERSITY
  • 6. linkeddata.org schema.orgWhereas traditional librarymetadata has always been focusedon helping humans find and make use ofinformation, linked data ontologiesare focused on helping machines find andmake use of information. On the web – of the web ~ http://kcoyle.net/presentations/lita2011.html JUDY O’CONNELL CHARLES STURT UNIVERSITY
  • 7. This uri from the Library of Congresshttp://id.loc.gov/authorities/sh85042531has now become the globally available,machine and human readable, reliablesource for the description for thesubject heading of ‘Elephants’containing links to its related terms (in away that both machines and humanscan navigate). Open Library is an open, editable library catalog building towards a web page for every book ever published. Project of the Internet Archive. http://openlibrary.org/
  • 8. This is our context! .... our library services realityThe catalogue has been a silo but with RDA data can movebeyond bibliographic and authority recordsRDA encourages the recording of sufficient data to support more precise collocationRDA emphasizes the importance of relationshipsRDA adds precision to access pointsRDA provides greater internationalisationRDA builds a display of results that conveys meaningful information to the userJUDY O’CONNELL CHARLES STURT UNIVERSITY
  • 9. This is our context! .... old questions, new answers Metadata ~ what are the rules of engagement? Schema ~ what about controlled vocabularies? Users ~ what are their access needs Interface ~ how many access points? Data ~ what are the opportunities for user engagement? Media ~ what are the elements of interactivity? Access ~ what can we learn from the semantic web?JUDY O’CONNELL CHARLES STURT UNIVERSITY
  • 10. This is our context! .... OPAC as discovery interface Context aware: Points on the curriculum Points on the interest continuum Capacity to support learning discovery! How do you Access aware: stack up? Interfaces to support searching and discovery Search aware: Natural, predictive, responsive Results aware: Multimodal, multi-depository, relevant, filteredJUDY O’CONNELL CHARLES STURT UNIVERSITY
  • 11. Strategic directions for school libraries! .... today’s novelty is tomorrow’s norm New skills New knowledge New metadata New open access New global connections New learning community Are you prepared?JUDY O’CONNELL CHARLES STURT UNIVERSITY
