Next Generation Library Services through Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is defined as “dynamically scalable, virtualized information services delivered on-demand over the network in a pay-per-use model”. The National Institute of Standards and Technology ( NIST) defines Cloud computing as a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.

Next Generation Library Services through Cloud Computing

  1. 1. Dr. G. Ramadas Deputy Librarian, Noorul Islam University, Thuckalay-629180
  2. 2.  Cloud computing is defined as “dynamically scalable, virtualized information services delivered on-demand over the network in a pay-per-use model”. The National Institute of Standards and Technology ( NIST) defines Cloud computing as a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on- demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
  3. 3.  Cloud computing creates a fundamental change in computer architecture, software and tools development, and of course, in the way we store, distribute and consume information. Cloud computing refers to both the applications delivered as services over the Internet and the hardware and system software in the data centers that provide those services.
  4. 4.  Cloud computing architecture features are pushing all the data and services to the web and the added value in this transition may be used by a new generation of libraries where services and data coexist transparently “in the cloud”.
  5. 5.  Reduced Cost  Increased Storage  Flexibility  Feasibility
  6. 6.  The library community can apply the concept of cloud computing to amplify the power of cooperation and to build a significant, unified presence on the Web. This approach to computing can help libraries save time and money while simplifying workflows.
  7. 7.  Cloud computing can take the library facility at the most convenient state to its stakeholders than other technical approaches. Cloud computing can provide the optimum library services to the users by centralizing the resources and disk spaces of any digital library. This concept will open more doors and windows widely, which will let many more users get their access from the library. Cloud computing can provide an uninterrupted service to its stakeholders. This revolutionary concept can save time for all the stakeholders by providing the efficient library services.
  8. 8.  The library automation system has gone from inception to rapid implementation to near ubiquitous adoption. The library has seen itself facing tremendous changes in terms of both resources and services it provides. On the resource side, print material and physical items are no longer dominant collections; electronic resources are fast outpacing physical materials to become the dominant library resources, especially in the academic and special libraries. In addition, many other digital format resources, such as digital collections, institutional repositories, and e-books have taken root. On the service front, library users—accustomed to immediate and instant searching, finding, and accessing information in the Google age—demand more and more instant and easy access to library resources and services
  9. 9.  comprehensive library resources management;  a system based on service-oriented architecture;  the ability to meet the challenge of new library workflow; and  a next-generation discovery layer.
  10. 10.  The scope for utilizing the cloud computing technology in the field of library and information services are more due to various constraints such as cost, space, manpower, time and outdated technology. It can also be used to manage both print and digital content and make more use of knowledge bases for efficient resource management. More studies are to be carried out the feasibility and scope for its implementations in the library and information centers.
