  • Het is ons niet te doen om het instituut Openbare bibliotheek kost wat kost te behouden en een betekenis te geven. Het is ons erom te doen dat de doelstelling van het instituut absoluut relevant blijft en(of maar) de invulling moet herdacht worden. De bibliotheek moet zichzelf opnieuw heruitvinden. Moest de openbare bibliotheek niet bestaan, zou ze moeten uitgevonden worden, ook nu nog. Andere elementen uit de IFLA statement: Libraries have a responsibility both to guarantee and to facilitate access to expressions of knowledge and intellectual activity. To this end, libraries shall acquire, preserve and make available the widest variety of materials, reflecting the plurality and diversity of society . Libraries shall ensure that the selection and availability of library materials and services is governed by professional considerations and not by political, moral and religious views. Libraries shall acquire, organize and disseminate information freely and oppose any form of censorship. Libraries shall make materials, facilities and services equally accessible to all users. There shall be no discrimination due to race, creed, gender, age or for any other reason. In tegenstelling tot boekhandel is de bibliotheek al decennialang multi-mediaal. Dit is een sterkte die verder moet geëxploiteerd worden. Wellicht wordt de boekhandel ook meer en en meer een ‘content’-handel.
  • E-boek platform bevindt zich in de waardeketen op de plek van de aggregatoren E-boek platform kan zich zo opstellen en ook samenwerken met andere commerciële of publiek/private aggregatoren

Geldt dit voor alle collectie onderdelen of is daar verfijning mogelijk per titel, per collectiedeel?

    • 4. Realization
  • 1. Is e-reading relevant?
  • Education
  • Reading…
  • Multimedia reading
  • Playlane’s moving books
  • Digital magazines
  • Multimedia reading
    • "It's not about the page versus the screen in a technological grudge match. It's about the screen doing a dozen things the page can't do.” (Print Is Dead: Books in Our Digital Age; Gomez, Jeff; 2007) .
    • “ The vook” (Bradley Inman):
      • a multimedia hybrid
      • digital amalgam
  • And then what about our libraries?
  • And then what about our bookshops?
  • Based on studies…

  • And more…
  • The value chain shifts digital
    • -> Collection becomes digital
    • -> Access becomes online
    • -> Medium becomes multimedia
    • -> people deal differently with information
    • -> Google, Facebook, Twitter, mobile internet, gaming
    • => “Reading” => “ Digital Reading ”
    • -> media are converging
    • -> implosion off music market; crisis at newspapers
    • => “Publishing”=> “ Digital Publishing ”
  • Challenges and threats…
  • 2. Why a governement initiative?
  • Purpose of public libraries
    • IFLA (The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions – 1999 Den Hague – ( ) affirms:
    • Libraries provide access to information, ideas and works of imagination. They serve as gateways to knowledge, thought and culture .
    • Libraries provide essential support for lifelong learning , independent decision-making and cultural development for both individuals and groups.
    • Libraries contribute to the development and maintenance of intellectual freedom and help to safeguard basic democratic values and universal civil rights .
  • Relevance of reading for policy
    • Joint declaration by the European Booksellers Federation (EBF) and the Federation of European Publishers (FEP)) (Brussels, 5 October 2009:
    • Reading plays a crucial part in the knowledge society and, as a consequence, in disseminating culture and enhancing competitiveness and employment; governments should therefore pledge to support all stakeholders of the book sector through adequate cultural, fiscal and industrial policies .
  • The value chain evolves
    • Short term
      • Other players will make the rules
      • Larger editors will take fragmented initiatives
      • Small editors will miss the train
    • Long term
      • Bookshop retraits to the niche of the physical book
      • International players will determine the information- and culture consumption
      • Libraries will quench
      • Government offside
    If we don’t do anything
    • The Flemish platform centralizes storage and facilitates the exploitation of the digital book production.

  • A new business model

    • Can we relate the business model to the democratic role of the public library and the added value of the bookshop?
