ACRL 2017: Unlocking the Value of the Monograph

228 views

Published on

JSTOR Labs, an experimental platform development group, convened at Columbia University a group of scholars, librarians, and publishers in October 2016. Together, they tackled this design question: if we applied data visualization and design thinking techniques to the existing corpus of digitized monograph files, how could we improve the discovery and user experience for scholars, students, and general readers? In this presentation I share the approach we took to Reimagine the Monograph and demonstrate the working prototype created during a “flash build” at Columbia in November by JSTOR Labs. I also share four "product concepts" that we might build next, and poll the audience for feedback on these ideas. Results from audience polling are included in this slide deck.
