This presentation is intended to create an overview upon the services and instruments the beneficiaries of LAM have at their disposal, and how LAMs understand to come in a helpful way towards meeting the expectations of their patrons. The range of instruments and services the user is accustomed to use are shown in order to make visible the gaps that are slowly getting bigger between the user and the LAM. This highly skilled user is searching to find the same instruments he is in the habit of using when he turns his limited attention towards LAMs searching for “stuff” BG (Before Google). Libraries, Archives and Museum are put in the position to adapt and rethink their role taking into consideration the user’s needs and information seeking and retrieving habits. Internet for him becomes more and more the primary source for information.

  • This presentation is intended to create an overview upon the services and instruments the beneficiaries of LAM have at their disposal, and how LAMs understand to come in a helpful way towards meeting the expectations of their patrons. The range of instruments and services the user is accustomed to use are shown in order to make visible the gaps that are slowly getting bigger between the user and the LAM. This highly skilled user is searching to find the same instruments he is in the habit of using when he turns his limited attention towards LAMs searching for “stuff” BG (Before Google). Libraries, Archives and Museum are put in the position to adapt and rethink their role taking into consideration the user’s needs and information seeking and retrieving habits. Internet for him becomes more and more the primary source for information.
  • We will stop this time only at the pillars of the information and documentation structures out there: libraries, archives and museums. On short LAMs.There is a link between the LAMs and the beneficiaries of their products and services. The LAMs are becoming more and more instruments to confirm a certain piece of information retrieved from the Internet. The LAMs start to become the places where the latest information package delivery will not be the core business any more. More often LAMs will be seen as access service share points. The position of primary information instrument might be regained tying closer the links with the educational and training environment of the user. LAMs have to transform themselves as knowledge receptors and to reconfirm their position as preservers and aggregators of the knowledge.
  • Where the users are coming from? With what are they used to?In this moment setting up a site or a blog there is an incentive to become creative and to exchange experience with their colleagues. In training programs or university, the students access the educational resources which are served to them via virtual environments or accessing digital repositories. Researchers access the newest works of their colleagues via aggregators mostly developed by the editors big and small. The natural expectations are for an open access regime to the research output, be that works or data.In many cases, teachers and students alike are encouraged to remix the educational content in order to further expand the knowledge gained.Much of the electronic services to which they are used to and are capable of handling in a creative manner are targeted towards knowledge accumulation.How LAMs may regain a part of these users?
  • On personal level, beyond the search phase, there are to be acknowledged a series of personal instruments which the user makes every day use in order to make an estimate of what is out there in their field. He/She uses instruments to collect bibliographic references; makes use of instruments to index and search their own documents collections; communicates resources with other colleagues exchanging it via folksonomies, etc. This “ad-hoc” information specialist comes in a strong concurrency with the LAM specialist.
  • There is to be observed a primary colaborative direction: mostly institutions that aggregate collections. This is done mainly for the user to access elements of the collections in the form of electronic surogates. This direction requires substantial financial and logistic efforts.
  • On the foundations of these aggregation services there is a primary level of compatibility that needs to be achieved via common and standardized metadata schemas.
  • The user wants all the instruments he’s got a habit to use. He expects to see them packed in a familiar way in the products and services provided by the LAMs.
  • Management, technology, access and workflowThese are the four coordinates that LAMs have to take into consideration when they are building their services and products. There has to be a fine tuned balance of the resources alocated when the services and products are being built.
  • There has to be taken into consideration also the role of the future role of the information specialists. The services existing now there are expected to be transformed soon into something else. And most of these services will be modeled by the user-centered design.
  • One central point to the future is drawn by the growing need for a rich context and not only the information in itself. This means that a shift in vision should occur and convergence of LAMs should be stepped up.
  • My thoughts goes to Paul Otlet – the man with a vision exceeded by far the realities out there.Thank you!
