The facilitated collection: collections and collecting in a network environment

Published on

We often think of collections as local – whether owned or licensed. Increasingly this picture is changing in several ways. Libraries are sharing responsibility for collections. Libraries are providing access to materials they do not own, but which are available to their users (freely available digital book collections for example). Demand driven acquisitions changes the view of local collections. Institutions are also thinking about how to manage locally produced materials (research data for example) and support access across institutions. This trend is supported by changes as discovery is peeled away from local collections. This presentation discusses these trends, and collections and discovery change in a network environment.

This was a presentation at the Libraries Australia Forum, Melbourne, 2015

  11. 11. Workflow is the new content?
  12. 12. Workflow is the new content supply chain • In a print world, researchers and learners organized their workflow around the library. • The library had limited interaction with the full process. • In a digital world, the library needs to organize itself around the workflows of research and learners. • Workflows generate and consume information resources.

  22. 22. Shared print- collective collection Then: Value relates to depth and breadth of local collection. Now: Value relates to systemwide curation of and access to print collections – ‘rightscaling’. 28 Decision support through shared data.

  24. 24. The facilitated collection (collections as a service)
  25. 25. Owned Catalog Available LibGuides, etc Licensed KB/Discovery Global Google, ResearchGate, etc … Separation of discovery and collection?: • Focus shifts from owned to facilitated (available)? • Focus shifts from collection to other services (creation, …)? • Systemwide thinking becomes stronger? OCLC Research, 2015.Figure: Discoverability redefines collection boundaries.
  26. 26. The ‘owned’ collection The ‘facilitated’ collection The ‘licensed’ collection The ‘borrowed’ collection • Pointing people at Google Scholar • Including freely available ebooks in the catalog • Creating resource guides for web resources • Purchased and physically stored A collections spectrum The ‘demand- driven’ collection The ‘shared print’ collection The ‘shared digital’ collection The evolving scholarly record Requires greater ‘conscious coordination’ at network level
  27. 27. In conclusion
  28. 28. Then: the user in the life of the library Now: the library in the life of the user The practice of research and learning is changing. Research and learning outputs are diversifying. Research outputs are the subject of policy attention Publishers supporting workflow and reputation. Move to facilitated access to materials – collection as a service. Move to management and disclosure of institutional materials – inside out. Move to collaborative attention to collections – collective collection. Move to deeper engagement with research and learning – creation. Effective stewardship of the print and digital scholarly record needs conscious coordination at the network level.
