  • Focus of this phase is very much on exploration – we want to get into all the cracks of monographs and understand as much about them as possible – we don’t want to assume we know the answers.

Background The Ideas Next steps Within 5 years UK researchers and students will have unparalleled access to a distributed national research collection enabled by an open collaborative national infrastructure which has helped transform the creation, collection, use and preservation of the scholarly monograph through: 1. Collaboration - fostering collaboration between, and within, sectors to create the most effective framework for managing monograph collections old and new 2. Experimentation – developing opportunities to test and experiment with new models and formats 3. Intelligence – enabling institutions, organisations and individuals to make the right decisions through improved data sharing 4. Strategy - reducing overheads, enabling agreements and policies and sharing infrastructure 5. Systems integration - reducing and streamlining the number of systems and processes to minimise duplication of assets, resources and effort 6. Service provision - designing services which ensure a shared, cost effective and transparent approach to managing monograph collections 7. Providing benefits to end users - developing effective metrics to better understand what users do with monographs and evaluate new and emerging needs in light of digital delivery
