  • The latter figure in particular is skewed as we are noticing an increase in the Reading Room being used as a Reading Room, ie, readers who are not necessarily using our collections but want to study in a quieter environment. The RR are now recording that separately so we can disentangle that from now on. The other reason that figure is so very much increased is the availability of the Per 900 stock in the RR, which is being consulted quite heavily. Again I have asked the RR to pick those figures up by re-instating the consultation trolley system.

    2. 2. What metadata have we got? • Manuscript/Archives • Printed materials with unique content • Published materials • Repository publications • Research Data • Digitised content • Electronic: in perpetuity • Electronic: licensed • Just in time • Project created resources www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    3. 3. Agencies • Author / creator/ project • Publisher • Aggregator • Acquired/licensed from • Licensed to • LMS • Local • Cloud • Library • Public • Re-purposing / Semantic enrichment www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    4. 4. Metadata priorities • Buy / license / link to pre- existing metadata • Eliminate cottage industries • Concentrate human resource on managing the uniquely held metadata creation: • MSS & Archives • Research outputs • Digitised materials www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    5. 5. Metadata utopia • Created once • Enhanced and enriched by the community • Held in the cloud • Ability to link holdings / copy specific information / library specific metadata www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    6. 6. Resource discovery priorities • Maximise the investment in the purchased / licensed resources • Eliminate complexity • Eliminate barriers to access • Get the data to where it is needed www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    7. 7. The catalogue still matters! New e-Book acquisition E-book catalogue 3000 records added to our catalogue 2500 e-books become 2000 available 1500 1000 500 0 www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    8. 8. Investment in resource discovery tools www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    9. 9. Cross searching all collections, includingmuseum and archives (with single-sign-on) www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    10. 10. Investment in training www.abdn.ac.uk/library/

    14. 14. www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    15. 15. Whose metadata is it anyway? www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    16. 16. Opportunities
    17. 17. • Minimise duplication• Maximise reach• Allow for community created richness• Opportunities for new services which add value to the community www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    18. 18. Existing sharing includes • RLUK / Copac • Backup catalogue • Collection management tool • WorldCat • Uniqueness /collection strength comparison • Aggregation of unique items • eThos • Europeana • NRA • Archives Grid • Much data is OAI/PMH enabled (more to come) www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    19. 19. Challenges
    20. 20. Challenges • Data ownership(s) • Data quality • Don’t just need to convince libraries • Existing aggregations, business models, associated services and community benefits • Resources required to publish www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    21. 21. Metadata as £ $ €
    22. 22. Various agencies exploiting metadata • Aggregators • License to libraries • License to LMS / resource discovery agencies • Create “value added” services based on mass creation/accumulation of metadata www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    23. 23. • LMS suppliers • Aggregate publisher created and library created data • In the cloud • Opportunity for community created enrichment • Opportunity to move physical storage (and storage management) into the cloud www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
    24. 24. Others who aggregate data give HE • Strategic decision making tools • Value added search • H- index • Peer review information • Citation information • Data in the cloud www.abdn.ac.uk/library/
