  26. 26. Three benefits acc to Google: 1. Find the right thing 2. Get the best summary 3. Go deeper and broader Within a discovery service … 1. Aspire to a singular identity for entities/things (people, works, places, organizations, …) 2. Gather data associated with those identities (e.g. ‘cards’) 3. Create relationships between identities.

  36. 36. Perhaps the most influential descriptive studies have come from OCLC Research, which has now shared reports outlining both levels of uniqueness as well as duplication among various aggregations of library collections. This growing body of computationally intensive analysis of the collective collection has also begun to clarify geographic distribution and other key characteristics of library collections relevant for decision making around coordinating activities. There is new understanding of collections at scale. Libraries can better assess past successes in coordination and cooperation and surface the outlines of new frontiers for collaborative activities as well as clarify potential efficiencies and opportunities.

  37. 37. North American print book resource: 45.7 million distinct publications 889.5 million total library holdings
  38. 38. Characteristics and implications of a North American network of regional shared print book collections • Regions common scale in shared print • Regions operationalized using mega- region concept Print management at mega-scale
  39. 39. • Regional-scale shared print strategy: – Institutional (OSU) perspective – Consortial (CIC) perspective • Examined characteristics of: – OSU local print book collection – CIC consortial collective collection • Findings … – Coverage requires cooperation – Scale adds scope and depth – Uniqueness/scarcity is relative Right-scaling Stewardship
