Transcript

  • 1. Developing a Vision For the Media-Upper Providence Library
  • 2. Agenda 1. Complete environmental scan/gap analysis 2. Discuss technology & libraries 3. Imagine patrons’ needs in 2012 and 2017 4. List key points of emphasis 5. Summarize vision
  • 3. Ground Rules No discussing the building! Keep focus on products, programs & services Base projections on facts (if possible)
  • 4. Environmental scan Tally findings Where do the greatest opportunities lie? What products, services & programs should we emphasize?
  • 5. Libraries & Technology Here today: WiFi eBooks & digital libraries (e.g., Google Book & Scholar) RSS feeds, Podcasts, & downloadable media (e.g., MP3s) Social networking software (e.g., Library Thing, MySpace) User tagging of catalogue records (e.g., WorldCat) Ratings & reviews, shareable lists, personal profiles Recommender/notification services “Library 2.0”
  • 6. Libraries & Technology Coming soon: Lightweight, high resolution e-readers (e.g., Amazon “Kindle”) Rapid expansion of digital libraries (especially if copyright issues are resolved) Print on demand (NY Public Library - “POD ATM machine”)
  • 7. The Paradigm Shift From: Libraries as “temples to books,” with librarians as gatekeepers & decoders of catalogue systems (Dewey Decimal, Library of Congress)
  • 8. The Paradigm Shift To: Libraries as “mental gymnasiums,” with librarians as facilitator-guides, and patrons as contributors & co-cataloguers of a wide range of print & virtual resources
  • 9. The Paradigm Shift
  • 10. Imagining Future Needs What will our youngest patrons (0-12) need in 2012? 2017? What will our teenage patrons (13-19) need in 2012? 2017? What will our adult patrons (20-65) need in 2012? 2017? What will our senior patrons (65+) need in 2012? 2017?
  • 11. Our Vision What products, programs & services to emphasize? What activities do we want to enable? (read - connect - grow?) What’s our niche?
