  • Over the last year we have studied the mass digitized book corpus in the context of system-wide print holdings and have found that a significant part of the average academic library is already substantially duplicated. This scatter chart provide a simple visualization of an important pattern that this project has revealed: that is, that the risks and opportunities associated with moving collection management ‘into the cloud’ – delivering digital texts rather than physical - are uniformly distributed across the research library community as a whole. This is a picture of the US ARL membership (a microcosm of the larger research library community) that shows the level of duplication between individual library collections and the mass digitized book collection in Hathi. We project that in a year’s time, many academic libraries are liable to find themselves “underwater,” holding a massive inventory of over-valued assets.Library directors will be expected to respond to questions about how an increasingly redundant local print collection is serving the educational and research mission of the parent institution. We need to be preparing for a world in which just-in-time, print on demand delivery is an option for a large share of the retrospective book collection.
  • “Web resources” means both entire web sites, sections of websites pertaining to the spill, and individual resources such as patent information for blowout preventers etc.117 of these sites were also included in the 2005 Hurricane Katrina Web archive. That archive is not yet publicly available; we hope to provide access concurrent with the oil spill archive.380 of these sites were selected by LSU subject experts.

    6. 6. California Digital Library Space: The Final Frontier College and university libraries in North America hold a billion books, and add approximately 25 million more each year. Libraries face great pressure to find efficient and cost-effective ways to house their existing holdings and to make room for new materials. While digital data storage and on-demand delivery hold great promise for ameliorating the space pressure, it may be many years before electronic versions supplant most print collections in most academic libraries. Lizanne Payne, Library Storage Facilities and the Future of Print Collections in North America (2007).

    13. 13. Collaborative approaches to retrospective print monographs will be more challenging Cost of de-duplicating and servicing print far higher than journals Libraries value their book collections more highly More research needed: • Collection overlap among libraries and storage facilities • Optimal copies • Cost / benefit of various management strategies and service models • User needs and behavior (Opportunity to engage with scholars)
