  • Wider stakeholders with broader perspectives.
  • One of the advantages of the agile approach that the project has adopted is that it recognises the ground beneath us is shifting; constantly changing. The idea of a national monograph strategy fluctuates in its popularity. So, as Rachel mentioned the project will focus be on really understanding the challenges in this space. The way we’re approaching it at this very early stage in the project is to explore the current landscape: What are the current components of this landscape, what are the main features of this space. Inbetween these quotes was the financial crash – very different financial landscape which means priorities change.
  • So these are all fairly obvious ones I think. This isn’t necessarily an exhaustive list, just indicative of the landscape. Neither do each of these elements remain in isolation; they are interrelated and constantly interacting. And, of course, under each of these is a long line of activities, projects, tools, services and work that seek to address the challenges in that specific area.
  • And, similarly, under each of these smaller elements are a number of other elements reaching further downward. Take for example analytics, there are vendor products like Bx, LAMP etc. Under union catalogues are copac, zetoc etc. And none of these components remains in isolation either, they interact with each other and with other higher level components. For example, UKRR would also be an element of preservation, document supply, and so on. So, while none of this landscape stage is about uncovering some staggering new component, or a challenge never before identified, it is about really understanding this landscape, getting under its skin. An essential part of that is understanding why change is needed and what the drivers are for change. So, this is where you all come in...!
  • Individually do post-it notesGet together and de-duplicate, how they relate to the generic drivers – if it’s just generic drivers then explain what that means in their specific circumstances. Prioritise the top 3 drivers for their area.

    3. 3. Original descriptionMonograph collections have grown up based on local needs withno real national strategic focus. As print collections age thecommunity needs to make decisions on what should be preserved,what digitised (if not already) and what de-accessioned.A national approach to this, exploiting technological solutionswould encourage a shared service approach to maintaining accessto print and to support the national needs of researchers. Thevalue of this is recognised, and it must be part of a UK-widestrategic framework.Aspects of the framework would include preservation strategies,priorities for digitisation (and an understanding of digitalsurrogates), discoverability issues and the role of documentdelivery services now and in the future
