Depends on excisting level of innovations, and of IT mindset ...
For us certainly! It all seemd to fit into place in the right time
ubeing there is not enough, you need to generate traffic, interaction, make google work to keep up...
IN my organisation, and i will demo it later on, many arrange external parties to to the work they need done..., website, patient research database, questionairres I'de like to know if this is simular to your organisations? The amount of external corporate cms activity is an indication for the level of user-driven IT-development and support ( or the lack of it)
The cause or at least an important cause is the Web. I want to show what scientist are doing and looking for on the Internet and why
When I was at a meeting of our Epidemiology Department in a room full with researchers, student and medical staff. I was there to talk about new services and resources. First problem is a common know problem, Library disconnect, unaware, wrong perception of library services and content, invisibility of the library. I had a hard time explaining why they should not only use Google Scholar, and also why some content on the web, seemingly freely available on the web was not all fulltext available for them. They told me they have various ways and systems to get what they want, .. But without going to the library. Hard to find, hard to use, too much, convusing, while it all seems to be out there on the web, for free and easy to use… Which brings me to the second related problem. Not only are they disconnecting from the library, but also are they getting the information elsewhere or arranging &making it themselves. They bypass the library completely there. We want to do something about that.
It are these things that actually invite researchers. Jisc Libraries of the Future Debate 2009, he also said the researchers are bypassing the library… he mentioned a scientist that was actually mainly using the offered space and tools by the publisher, and the web. And wasn’t been in the library for quite a time. Physicall or digitally The effect is not as strong in all areas of science. Roughly you could say that probably it is related to the percentage of electronically available content in the field. In science and medical science in particular the perception of the library.
The introduction of the HP IPAQ as standard mobile phone in hospital was a breakthrough. Doctors, specialist can be pretty independent, and IT standards in a large organisation can be pretty restrictive.. Anyone recognizes this? With this phone they were abled to manage things themselves, email became portable, accessible outside, schedule/calendar, and .... The web! Web 2.0 gave users even more control and creativity to make things work their way... This was the time of the so-called "pirate" era The amount of external corporate web activity is an indication for the level of user-driven IT-development and support ( or the lack of it)
Because we could, because it was free, web-based, not within reach of ÌT, and we got away with it because it was the time to have change...
Feed this feeling of reset mindset , find out what it can do Lending out ipads Simpel, easy and cheap, using existing resources. We do not have a huge team or large budgets available for technical installations or development. The University of Groningen library is doing a lot and we work together on a good level, but this is something we started alone.

A wiki, to share all info, apps etc
Personal: checkout & returning
Information & web Other excisting services they notice now too
Finds what you want it to do!
Besides the wiki, Keeping up Scoop.it
ADVICE !!!! not just license
Technology seperates content from format, location and time. But at what point does the information "come in" Where does it come from? Apps are just another new delivery tool for information. That's where libraries should come in, make sure its done the right way, using the resources from the library, To get the information to the user, in a format he chooses, on a location he needs it, the moment he needs it.
IT refused to take this on, we just did Thats the reason it is good to sometimes NOT do things the corporate way, ... To get the corporate attention Because where information is involved we, the librarians should come in
