  • 32. What Would You Attempt IfYou Knew You Would NotFail?
  • 33. My Humble Recommendations Focus on the user, I mean reallyPilot and experiment with mobile social cohorts Classes (mobile training or extended learning) Reading cohorts and book clubsPatron driven strategies first Associations Fundraising Meetings Teams (business or sport)
  • 34. My Humble RecommendationsActively lobby and educate to ensure that the emerging mobileecosystem supports the values and principles of librarianship forbalance in the rights of end users for use, access, learning andresearch. Support vendors and laws to be as agnostic as possible by ensuringthat, as far as possible your services and content offerings support thewidest range of devices, formats, browsers, and platforms.
  • 35. eLearningMobileDistantTools
  • 36. My Humble Recommendations Design for frictionless access using such opportunitiesas geo-IP and mobile ready websites Test everything in all browsers – mobile or not – alldevices. Invest in usability research aimed at the user experienceand test and learn from it and share your learning. Don’t prioritize the librarian experience first Watch key developments in major publishing spaces –retail, kiddy lit, textbooks, e-learning, fiction, etc. Sportthe differences and opportunities
  • 37. My Personal Hobby Horses This is an evolution not a revolution The REAL revolution was the Internet and the Web. The hybrid ecology is winning in the near term foroperating systems and content formats. This is good since competition drives innovation andwe’re in a Renaissance not an end game right now. Engage in critical thinking not raw criticism. Beconstructive. Critical thinking is not part of dogma or religious fervoror fan boy behavior.
  • 38. My Personal Hobby Horses This is an evolution not a revolution Perfectionism will not move us forward at this juncture. Really understand the digital divide and remove youreconomic and social class blinkers Get real about teens and Boomers Get over library obsession with statistics andcomprehensiveness. Get excellent at real measurements, sampling andunderstanding impact and satisfaction.(Analytics, Foresee, Pew)
  • 39. My Personal Hobby Horses This is an evolution not a revolution We need to revisit the concept ofpreservation, archives, repositories, andconservation from an access and linked data view. Check out new publishing models like Flipboard. Watch for emerging book enhancements andother features that will challenge librarymetadata, selection policies, and collectiondevelopment.
