Understanding the Collective Collection: Canadian library resources Understanding the Collective Collection: Canadian library resources Presentation Transcript

  • A view of the Canadian library resource in WorldCat Constance Malpas Program Officer, OCLC Research 28 May 2014 OCLC Canada Symposium #CLAVic14 Understanding the Collective Collection
  • …des bibliothèques de feu… Disposition, dispersal of scholarly record, cultural record ‘A six heures du soir, en son domicile… rue de Seine no. 10 ‘distant reading’
  • 3 coherence at ‘network’ scale Libraries – locus of curation culture, context, connections de-centered, disintermediated
  • 4 System-wide perspective characteristics of the collective library resource Explore Share Magnify intelligence to inform library decision-making impact of global library cooperative
  • Collective collection - 5 a regional perspective
  • 6 “Coverage requires cooperation” 31% 31% North American Print Book Landscape, January 2011 Canadian libraries hold 31% of titles in North American print book collection
  • 7 31% Canadian libraries hold 6% of total North American print book inventory 6% North American Print Book Landscape, January 2011 Avg. 3 holdings per title in Canada
  • 8 North American Mega-regions 12 zones of highly integrated economic activity Cascadia Chi-Pitts Tor-Buff-chester}Canada/US
  • 9 Relative size of regional print book collections 92% of North American print book collection concentrated in 12 mega-regions 40% of Canadian print book resource distributed outside of mega-regions 6% not duplicated in any other region
  • 10 Top Concentrations of Print Books outside of Mega-regions
  • Implications • Canadian print book resource represents distinctive asset in broader North American system • Diffuse distribution of inventory across ‘extra-regional’ zones presents challenges for cooperative stewardship • Opportunities to leverage networks of mutual interest in existing mega-regions (Cascadia, Chi-Pitts, Tor-Buff- chester) • Regional consortia (BCI, CAUL, COPPUL, OCUL…) are natural nexus for above-the-institution and supra- provincial coordination 11
  • Network intelligence – Shared print 12
  • >266M library holdings in WorldCat Shared Print Collections • Cooperative stewardship of aggregate print resource • Part of broader trend toward ‘group-scale’ library operations • >30 active shared print groups in North America • 9 major groups registering shared print holdings in WorldCat 13 Shared Print Titles in WorldCat April 2014
  • 14 Group Infrastructure 31 ‘presumed stewards’ of cultural/scholarly record collective collection: >21M titles the ‘right scale’ for cooperative action? BCI, CAUL, COPPUL, OCUL, BCLC, TAL, …
  • 15 Regional Infrastructure 10 SPAN archive holders preserving >1K serial titles (>60K vols.) on behalf of 23 regional partners group-scale confederation within a larger network
  • 16 Median duplication = 14% of collection Based on Shared Print collections registered in WorldCat as of 30 April 2014. Network effects . . .
