How about discovery? What are user expectations for true satisfaction? How does library search compare to consumer search like Google and retail or government? How do people find and connect with library virtual services? Are end users being successful in their POV? Are they happy? Will they come back? Tell a friend?

  14. 14. Strategic Challenges for Reference and Research Work in the Coming Decade
  15. 15. The BASICS Data Information Knowledge Wisdom NOT Behavior
  16. 16. Death of Reference Who What Where When Why How
  17. 17. How & Why Questions Now that’s research The interview is more involved Transformational not Transactional Expertise counts Expertise is shared mutually Groups and patterns matter
  18. 18. What does all this mean? The Article level universe The Chapter and Paragraph Universe Integrated with Visuals – graphics and charts Integrated with ‘video’ Integrated with Sound and Speech Integrated with social web Integrated with interaction and not just interactivity How would you enhance a book?

  25. 25. The BASICS Containers for Pedagogy Created by Teams (e.g. 40,000 authors a year for Cengage alone) (yes that’s a lot of lawyers) Copyright and complicated layering of millions of rights (creators - pictures, graphics, video, tests, text, documents, etc.) Serious Lawsuits: Feist, Texaco, LSUC, Tasini, NatGeo, Authors Guild, GBS, etc. Complex extension opportunities (links to articles, databases, library assistance, etc.)
  26. 26. Textbook Challenges Format Agnosticism Browsers: IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari Devices: Macintosh, PC Desktops & Laptops Mobile: Laptops, Tablets (iPad, Fire, etc.) Mobile: Smartphones (iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Windows, etc.) Container: PDF, ePub, .mobi, Kindle, etc. Learning Management System: Blackboard / WebCT, D2L, Moodle, Sakai, etc. Purchasing (Amazon, B&N, Chegg, CengageBrain, Apple Store, University Textbook Store, etc.)

  30. 30. What is Changing?1. Componentization of pedagogy2. Enhanced textbooks (tests, tracking, video, etc.)3. Advanced e-learning4. Ability to archive5. The purchaser matrix (individual student, class, institutions, state/province/country)6. Textbook boundaries (library links first…)
  31. 31. Pricing Models1. Buy the print copy2. Buy the exact electronic copy of the print3. Buy both (bundling)4. Rent the print or e-copy for a specified period5. Create custom coursepacks in print or e-copy6. Buy at the course level included in fee7. Buy at the institution / enterprise level8. Buy at the state/province level9. Espresso Book Machines10.Pay-per-use, micro-payments, ‘Square’ and phones
  32. 32. This era will see a Fundamental Reimagining the TextbookFor the present there will be those who resist and the resisters will be the majority.

  34. 34. Consider the differences . . . Computer Commons Mall Service Commons Information Commons Knowledge Commons Learning Commons Science Commons Centre or Central? Physical / Virtual Hybrid
