...collaborates with ______?
Kanye the Producer
"A record producer is an individual working
within the music industry, whose job it is to
oversee and manage the recording (i.e.
"production") of an artist's music. A producer
has many roles that may include, but are not
limited to, gathering ideas for the project,
selecting songs and/or musicians, coaching
the artist and musicians in the studio,
controlling the recording sessions, and
supervising the entire process
through mixing and mastering. Producers
also often take on a wider entrepreneurial
role, with responsibility for the budget,
schedules, and negotiations."

What Libraries
     can Learn from
         Kanye




       Presented by Emily Ford
        fordemily@gmail.com        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kanyewestdec2008.jpg




Hi, I'm Emily and I'm here to talk about what I think
libraries can learn from Kanye West. There are three
things I want to discuss today that I think Kanye West
does really well. These are things that I think libraries
and library workers should do more.

For those of you who don't know Kanye West , he's a
grammy award winning American hip hop producer and
rapper from Chicago. His mother was a professor and
his father a photojournalist.
twitter.com/kanyewest



                               http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shutter_shades.jpg




Kanye has been widely celebrated in pop culture. He
single handedly brought back the sunglasses fad from
the 80s', shutter shades. You can see these on the
slide.

His twitter stream, of which I've provided some
screenshot samples, has over 3 million followers. His
tweets have been parodied in several venues.
http://kanyenewyorkertweets.com/post/909443555




They have been used as inspiration for cap

tions to New Yorker cartoons. On the Jimmy Kimmel
LIve show, Oscar and Grammy award winning musician
 Josh Groban set Kanye West Tweets to piano music
and dramatically and operatically sang them.

So what does this have to do with libraries?
RZA




                                                                                                                Jay-Z




  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RZA_3_Shankbone_2009_Tao_of_Wu.jpg

                                                                         http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jay-Z_concert_%28cropped
                                                                         %29.jpg




Kanye West is a true collaborator. He has collaborated
on projects with numerous and varied people. Jay-Z
was one of the first artists he worked with. He's also
worked with RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan, Janet
Jackson, and others.

You might be thinking, well, libraries and library workers
are already good collaborators. And they and we are.

But Kanye is better. Why?
Bon Iver

                                                                                           Sir Elton John




                                                     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Elton_John_performing,_2008_3.jpg




  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bon_Iver_3.jpg




Because he collaborates with people, groups,
producers, and record labels. He works with individuals
who aren't of the hip-hop ilk.

On his latest album there are collaborations with indie
pop singer Bon Iver, Sir Elton John, numerous
symphony musicians, producers, record labels.

While discussing his collaboration with Mr. West, Sir
Elton John told a Rolling Stone that he thought Kanye
was a "stone-cold genius."
http://www.flickr.com/photos/travelinlibrarian/223314057/


       ...collaborates with ______?



Libraries are good at working with museums and
educational institutions.

Here in Oregon we have numerous LSTA funded
projects that are collaborative, L-net being one of them.

We have library consortia, library conferences, library
professional associations, etc.

I maintain that while libraries collaborate very well with
each other, we can think outside the box.

Who is our Elton John? Who is our Bon Iver?
Kanye the Producer
   "A record producer is an individual working
   within the music industry, whose job it is to
   oversee and manage the recording (i.e.
   "production") of an artist's music. A producer
   has many roles that may include, but are not
   limited to, gathering ideas for the project,
   selecting songs and/or musicians, coaching
   the artist and musicians in the studio,
   controlling the recording sessions, and
   supervising the entire process
   through mixing and mastering. Producers
   also often take on a wider entrepreneurial
   role, with responsibility for the budget,
   schedules, and negotiations."
   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_producer

                                                    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Producers_(1968).jpg




Kanye West began his career in music as a producer.
He was a behind the scenes person who worked with
different musicians and record labels.

To me, this sounds a whole lot like being a librarian.

We oversee and manage information, getting people
access to it, creating access points, answering
questions, herding cats on projects, working with
budgets and schedules, and negotiating with vendors.
If
                                                          Kanye=Producer

                                                          And
                                                          Librarian=Producer

                                                          Then
                                                          Kanye=Librarian?



  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kanye_West_2007.jpg




Okay, so Kanye isn't a librarian and he probably never
aimed to be one. But he is a producer.

But being a producer wasn't enough for Mr. West.

He expanded his role as a producer and became a
content creator. His first solo record, The College
Dropout, was released in 2004. Since that time he has
gone on to release 5 additional albums.

His music making and collaboration on albums has
been prolific.
Create more and varied
             content.




If Kanye went from being a producer to becoming a
content creator. Why can't libraries do the same?

Libraries already create digital content in the form of
metadata and cataloging. Libraries should be creating
systems, they should push further into the realm of
open access publishing.

By becoming content creators libraries can continue to
establish their value in a world when producing and
delivering content is old hat.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/librarianbyday/3426532334/




Some of it is already happening.

For example, OSU has created Library A la Carte.

But how is content creation viable for small, resource
poor libraries?

Consider taking the challenge posed to Oregon
Librarians by Kathleen Cornett, the keynote speaker at
OLA.

Create a civics education program and host it in your
library.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/super45/5681005285/




This challenge actually leads me to the third thing I
think that libraries can learn from Kanye. And it stems
from his notoriety.

After hurricane Katrina and during a Concert for
Hurricane Relief, Mr. West declared on live television
"George Bush doesn't care about black people."

Previously that year, Mr. West was featured on MTV.
During the special he spoke out calling for an end to
homophobic insults in hip-hop music lyrics.
Advocate fearlessly for
           your needs.




Mr. West has also been known to jump onto stage
during awards ceremonies and contest award results.

While libraries and library workers may not want to
completely follow this example, I think it IS necessary
for library workers to speak up.

For example, libraries in Oregon can stand up to
Newsbank, which recently acquired exclusive rights to
The Oregonian's archives and will cost libraries a lot
more money to replace.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/ala_members/4746327707/in/set-
                                                    72157624386625194/



  http://www.flickr.com/photos/gmeador/394328781/




But it's not just about vendor relations.

It's in our communities. It's in our legislative system.

Write, e-mail, phone and physically visit your city
council, county officials, state legislators, congressmen
and representatives to tell them what is important to
you and why libraries matter.
Articulate the value of
               libraries.




If libraries and library workers cannot make themselves
heard, how will anyone know the value of what we do?

How will libraries continue to exist if we don't jump up
on the stage, take the microphone, and declare, loudly
and proudly what is important to us and our patrons?
http://www.flickr.com/photos/i_am_scifi/2785558409/




So what can libraries learn from Kanye?

Libraries can learn to be the BEST collaborators.

Libraries and library workers can emulate his move
from producing to content creation.

And finally, libraries and library workers can learn to put
on their shutter shades and channel their inner Kanye.

Producers also often take on a wider entrepreneurial role, with responsibility for the budget, schedules, and negotiations." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_producer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Producers_(1968).jpg

  • 14. Articulate the value of libraries.
  • 16. What Libraries can Learn from Kanye Presented by Emily Ford fordemily@gmail.com http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kanyewestdec2008.jpg Hi, I'm Emily and I'm here to talk about what I think libraries can learn from Kanye West. There are three things I want to discuss today that I think Kanye West does really well. These are things that I think libraries and library workers should do more. For those of you who don't know Kanye West , he's a grammy award winning American hip hop producer and rapper from Chicago. His mother was a professor and his father a photojournalist.
  • 17. twitter.com/kanyewest http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shutter_shades.jpg Kanye has been widely celebrated in pop culture. He single handedly brought back the sunglasses fad from the 80s', shutter shades. You can see these on the slide. His twitter stream, of which I've provided some screenshot samples, has over 3 million followers. His tweets have been parodied in several venues.
  • 18. http://kanyenewyorkertweets.com/post/909443555 They have been used as inspiration for cap tions to New Yorker cartoons. On the Jimmy Kimmel LIve show, Oscar and Grammy award winning musician Josh Groban set Kanye West Tweets to piano music and dramatically and operatically sang them. So what does this have to do with libraries?
  • 19. RZA Jay-Z http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RZA_3_Shankbone_2009_Tao_of_Wu.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jay-Z_concert_%28cropped %29.jpg Kanye West is a true collaborator. He has collaborated on projects with numerous and varied people. Jay-Z was one of the first artists he worked with. He's also worked with RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan, Janet Jackson, and others. You might be thinking, well, libraries and library workers are already good collaborators. And they and we are. But Kanye is better. Why?
  • 20. Bon Iver Sir Elton John http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Elton_John_performing,_2008_3.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bon_Iver_3.jpg Because he collaborates with people, groups, producers, and record labels. He works with individuals who aren't of the hip-hop ilk. On his latest album there are collaborations with indie pop singer Bon Iver, Sir Elton John, numerous symphony musicians, producers, record labels. While discussing his collaboration with Mr. West, Sir Elton John told a Rolling Stone that he thought Kanye was a "stone-cold genius."
  • 21. http://www.flickr.com/photos/travelinlibrarian/223314057/ ...collaborates with ______? Libraries are good at working with museums and educational institutions. Here in Oregon we have numerous LSTA funded projects that are collaborative, L-net being one of them. We have library consortia, library conferences, library professional associations, etc. I maintain that while libraries collaborate very well with each other, we can think outside the box. Who is our Elton John? Who is our Bon Iver?
  • 22. Kanye the Producer "A record producer is an individual working within the music industry, whose job it is to oversee and manage the recording (i.e. "production") of an artist's music. A producer has many roles that may include, but are not limited to, gathering ideas for the project, selecting songs and/or musicians, coaching the artist and musicians in the studio, controlling the recording sessions, and supervising the entire process through mixing and mastering. Producers also often take on a wider entrepreneurial role, with responsibility for the budget, schedules, and negotiations." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_producer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Producers_(1968).jpg Kanye West began his career in music as a producer. He was a behind the scenes person who worked with different musicians and record labels. To me, this sounds a whole lot like being a librarian. We oversee and manage information, getting people access to it, creating access points, answering questions, herding cats on projects, working with budgets and schedules, and negotiating with vendors.
  • 23. If Kanye=Producer And Librarian=Producer Then Kanye=Librarian? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kanye_West_2007.jpg Okay, so Kanye isn't a librarian and he probably never aimed to be one. But he is a producer. But being a producer wasn't enough for Mr. West. He expanded his role as a producer and became a content creator. His first solo record, The College Dropout, was released in 2004. Since that time he has gone on to release 5 additional albums. His music making and collaboration on albums has been prolific.
  • 24. Create more and varied content. If Kanye went from being a producer to becoming a content creator. Why can't libraries do the same? Libraries already create digital content in the form of metadata and cataloging. Libraries should be creating systems, they should push further into the realm of open access publishing. By becoming content creators libraries can continue to establish their value in a world when producing and delivering content is old hat.
  • 25. http://www.flickr.com/photos/librarianbyday/3426532334/ Some of it is already happening. For example, OSU has created Library A la Carte. But how is content creation viable for small, resource poor libraries? Consider taking the challenge posed to Oregon Librarians by Kathleen Cornett, the keynote speaker at OLA. Create a civics education program and host it in your library.
  • 26. http://www.flickr.com/photos/super45/5681005285/ This challenge actually leads me to the third thing I think that libraries can learn from Kanye. And it stems from his notoriety. After hurricane Katrina and during a Concert for Hurricane Relief, Mr. West declared on live television "George Bush doesn't care about black people." Previously that year, Mr. West was featured on MTV. During the special he spoke out calling for an end to homophobic insults in hip-hop music lyrics.
  • 27. Advocate fearlessly for your needs. Mr. West has also been known to jump onto stage during awards ceremonies and contest award results. While libraries and library workers may not want to completely follow this example, I think it IS necessary for library workers to speak up. For example, libraries in Oregon can stand up to Newsbank, which recently acquired exclusive rights to The Oregonian's archives and will cost libraries a lot more money to replace.
  • 28. http://www.flickr.com/photos/ala_members/4746327707/in/set- 72157624386625194/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/gmeador/394328781/ But it's not just about vendor relations. It's in our communities. It's in our legislative system. Write, e-mail, phone and physically visit your city council, county officials, state legislators, congressmen and representatives to tell them what is important to you and why libraries matter.
  • 29. Articulate the value of libraries. If libraries and library workers cannot make themselves heard, how will anyone know the value of what we do? How will libraries continue to exist if we don't jump up on the stage, take the microphone, and declare, loudly and proudly what is important to us and our patrons?
  • 30. http://www.flickr.com/photos/i_am_scifi/2785558409/ So what can libraries learn from Kanye? Libraries can learn to be the BEST collaborators. Libraries and library workers can emulate his move from producing to content creation. And finally, libraries and library workers can learn to put on their shutter shades and channel their inner Kanye.
