  • We can judge the importance of Thompson by the fact that many research universities (including a good number of RLUK institutions) have collected his works – but none more completely than St Andrews.Note strong ‘diffusion’ of content.This is an ‘individual’ scale view of presence in the published record.Insets:http://www.worldcat.org/wcidentities/np-thompson,%20darcy%20wentworthhttp://experimental.worldcat.org/IDNetwork/display.html?query=lccn-n84-126863

Cloud-Sourcing Research Collections: Key Finding: Mass digitized corpus in HathiTrust duplicates substantial portion of academic print 60% Duplication of ARL University Library Holdings in HathiTrust Digital Library 50% Median duplication in December 2010: 33% How does RLUK situation compare? % of Titles Duplicated 40% 30% Median duplication in June 2010: 31% 20% 10% Median duplication in June 2009: 19% 0% 0 20 40 60 Rank in ARL Investment Index (2007-2008) 80 100 120

Center of gravityfor core library operations is shifting Many functions traditionally organised at „institution-scale‟ are being re-organised at above-the-institution scale Local  group, regional, national Cataloguing, selection/acquisition, stewardship Shared e-collections -Shared services – Shared print – National Monograph Strategy UK context favors emergence of national-scale solution 9
    • 9. Right-scaling stewardship US:shared print efforts increasingly organised at group, regional scale Mlchigan Shared Print Initative Central Iowa Collaborative Collections Initiative Florida Academic Repository Why? Existing-inter-lending partnerships – strong networks of trust Constorial infrastructure – established governance structures Strong federalist tradition – favors decentralised solutions US context favors emergence of group-scale solution 10

    • 11. Shared stewardship – at what scale? Supply transition from print to electronic has been slower for books than journals; less redundancy in system-wide inventory Demand Brand increased discoverability in the network puts new pressure on print supply chain library reputation still bound up with books; organisational transition is difficult User affordances of digitized and e-books differ; reader expectations are not yet fixed behaviours Optimal scale of collaboration for books v. journals may d 12

    • 13. „the gap that should most concern us in research libraries today is not the one that lies between physical and online documents, but the one that lies between commodity and noncommodity documents.‟ (p.3) Rick Anderson. Can‟t Buy Us Love: The Declining Importance of Library Books and the Rising Importance of Special Collections. Ithaka S+R, 2013 15

Proportion of titles held by <5 libraries in WorldCat 60% 50% Selective sample (ORLP) 40% 30% Median: 21% 20% But: scarcity (alone) is not a reliable indicator of research value 10% 0% 0 2,000,000 4,000,000 6,000,000 8,000,000 10,000,000 Titles in collection as represented in WorldCat 18
