Change
is
inevitable
DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES
SECTION 02
Disruptive technologies disrupt
the status quo...
Big Data
Direct impact on libraries
o Better reach of customers
o Better connection with the community
o Personalized user experience, content and resources
o Cost reductions, automation, faster and better decisions
Fields of Application in libraries
o Data as information sources
o Data analysis
o Data visualization
Limiting factors
o Lack of qualified skilled staff & infrastructure
o Data protection
o Funding problems
Libraries can use big data tools to analyze
their large data holdings and understand
their own users better and thus be able to
offer new or improved services.
Blockchain
Blockchain technology in libraries:
o Build an enhanced metadata system
o Keep track of digital-first sale rights as a result of
provable ownership and digital scarcity
o Connect networks of libraries and universities as an
Inter-Planetary File System (IPFS) to validate credentials
o Support community-based borrowing that could extend
the traditional library collection beyond its walls
o Facilitate the indexing and sharing of community
resources in a sharing network
o Secure intellectual property
Uses a distributed database that organizes
data into records (blocks) that have
cryptographic validation.
Blocks are time stamped and are linked to
previous records so that they can only be
changed by those who own the encryption
keys to write the files.
Internet of Things
The library can offer a better user experience by enriching
its services and collections with IOT:
o All books become material objects under a strict and
permanent control
o Automating a book return system, equipped with an
automatic sorter
o Tracking room/space usage
o Program attendance
o Monitoring humidity levels for special collections
The main obstacle for implementing this kind of system is a
high price for RFID equipment.
IOT refers to the possibility of connecting
everyday devices and transferring data
between them using RFID.
A self-service kiosk which is monitored from
the main library to track usage, identify
usage trends and make recommendations.
Robots and Drones
Robots and robotic technologies are now
mature enough to leave the research lab
and come to the consumer market in large
numbers. Robots are becoming more
intelligent with AI advancements.
In this smart era, robots can provide an improvement to
tedious tasks usually performed by librarians, like labouring
down aisles to sift through, sort, arrange and pick up books.
Robots can steer, navigate and conduct searches for missing,
misplaced or out-of-sequence volumes, by means of scanning
RFID tags, during off-peak hours or when the institution is
closed.
Drones would be responsible for delivering the books either
to the doorsteps of the users who ordered a book – or to their
hands – irrespective of their location. Drones can deliver
packages and both to users based on their real time location
via GPS.
Augmented Reality
AR applications in Libraries:
o Augmented books
o Guided tours
o Searching for Media / Additional Information
o Gamification
o Shelf Maintenance
Most of current applications are prototypes:
– myLibrARy: University of Applied Sciences Potsdam
[access to all of the library's resources]
– ShelvAR: Miami University in Oxford, Ohio : [supports
librarians to identify books in the wrong
place and for inventory].
– LibrARi: an image-based AR app for mobile devices
that supports users on finding books in the
bookshelf
Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that
superimposes a computer-generated image
on a user's view of the real world, thus
providing a composite view.
AR
Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence can play a critical role in updating and
expanding library’s values and ways of work.
Shift focus:
o The way we navigate the information architecture
o How access to collections is achieved
o Expediting processes, freeing up finite resources from
repetitive labour tasks to focus on enriching the public
library experience
Challenges:
o Attracting new and more diverse audiences
o Providing a faster, better user experience
o Bridging emerging skill gaps
o Competing with today's alternative information sources
o Difficulty to show ROI
“Can machines think?"
"Can machines behave intelligently?“
As a very broad concept, with different
levels of intelligence, flexibility and
applications, AI strives to mimic the
functionality of the human brain and
surpasses it in many aspects related to
speed, precision and power.

AI and Smarter Libraries

  • 1. Dr. Milad Sebaaly Chairman & CAO Global Learning Group ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE AND SMARTER LIBRARIES May 2021
  • 2. 1. New Trends in Libraries 2. Disruptive Technologies 3. AI and Its Applications 4. Smart Library Services INDEX
  • 3. NEW TRENDS IN LIBRARIES SECTION 01 In line with the past, online with the future…
  • 4. LIBRARIES’ NATIONAL ROLE o Provision of information for human development and sustainability. o Information is collected and disseminated to society. o Should be right at the heart of key national policies and strategies for economic, social and cultural development. o “It is the library’s obligation to be at the edge of different uses of culture and uses of technology”. [Manager of Library and Citizen Service at Roskilde Libraries in Denmark]
  • 5. LIBRARY TRENDS Libraries in the digital era need to cope with: o Changes in user needs for: ▪ Transition from print to digital ▪ Digital content in various forms ▪ Digital and smart, value-added services ▪ New delivery systems: Distant 24/7/365 access ▪ Search behaviour, experience and expectations o Changes in referencing/cataloguing/indexing systems from the logic of the 19th century. o Increasingly vast quantities of unstructured data, from external sources, compared to its own structured catalogue and meta data. o Changes in professional skills: data scientists, data analysts, etc. and the need for a new generation of Librarians. o The need for process automation, space optimization, and intelligent decision making and services. Libraries’ main mission: o To offer equality of access to information for every citizen. o To be a trendsetter in digital use and implementation of more emerging technologies.
  • 6. INDUSTRY 4.0 AND LIBRARY 4.0 Libraries’ next breakthrough in the digital era: From a place to gather and read books or search for information, to an innovative smart library: o Provides new information and generates added value for the people o Become the lungs of knowledge in the world of research and education o Promotes digital citizenship and skills o Copes with the speed at which digital technology develops o Upgrades jobs and research digital skills o Uses technology to deal with information overload o Helps to distinguish between trusted and fake information The Industrial Revolution 4.0: Digitalization, artificial intelligence, internet of things, big data, robotics, nanotechnology, quantum computing, cybersecurity, AR/VR, biotechnology, 3D printing and autonomous vehicles are playing an important role in various aspects of human life.
  • 7. Plants Rocks Trees LIBRARY OF THE FUTURE Water Infrastructure and open access platform Social & community hub Intellectual & learning center Intelligent & digitalized environment
  • 8. AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT Traditional Services in Libraries o Acquisition Services o Processing o Lending Services o Awareness Services o Bibliographic Services o Maintenance o Ambience and space to implement BYOD o Cyber Library o Accommodate users with various disabilities o Space to display thoughts/activities o Library portals and remote access o Intelligent and flexible catalogues o Federated and AI based search o Cloud, mobile and social media services o Library security systems: RFID, smartcard, biometrics, face recognition o Digital signage o Data and statistical services o Multimedia, AR/VR and 360˚ videos streaming services o Robots and drones o Group Learning o Open source and open educational resources o Research support services and digital reference services Change is inevitable
  • 9. AREAS OF INTELLIGENT IMPROVEMENT AI and Smart Libraries: Internet of things, RFID and other technologies have been unable to fully meet the technical requirements of smart library; artificial intelligence is a new driving force for further development of the smart library. Need for o More efficient, fast and high-quality services o More attractive information interconnection environment o More diversified information sharing space o Modern scientific and technological means to increase readers' experience and enhance readers' services Intelligent Services o Self-borrowing and returning system o Mobile phone/network self-renewal system o Intelligent inventory/positioning system o 3D Printing and AR/VR navigation system o Digital assistants o Intelligent seat reservation and space optimization system Top Trends and Priorities in 2021 o Inclusivity o Open Access o The Changing Nature of Education o Digitization and Media Literacy Change is inevitable
  • 10. DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES SECTION 02 Disruptive technologies disrupt the status quo...
  • 11. Big Data Direct impact on libraries o Better reach of customers o Better connection with the community o Personalized user experience, content and resources o Cost reductions, automation, faster and better decisions Fields of Application in libraries o Data as information sources o Data analysis o Data visualization Limiting factors o Lack of qualified skilled staff & infrastructure o Data protection o Funding problems Libraries can use big data tools to analyze their large data holdings and understand their own users better and thus be able to offer new or improved services.
  • 12. Blockchain Blockchain technology in libraries: o Build an enhanced metadata system o Keep track of digital-first sale rights as a result of provable ownership and digital scarcity o Connect networks of libraries and universities as an Inter-Planetary File System (IPFS) to validate credentials o Support community-based borrowing that could extend the traditional library collection beyond its walls o Facilitate the indexing and sharing of community resources in a sharing network o Secure intellectual property Uses a distributed database that organizes data into records (blocks) that have cryptographic validation. Blocks are time stamped and are linked to previous records so that they can only be changed by those who own the encryption keys to write the files.
  • 13. Internet of Things The library can offer a better user experience by enriching its services and collections with IOT: o All books become material objects under a strict and permanent control o Automating a book return system, equipped with an automatic sorter o Tracking room/space usage o Program attendance o Monitoring humidity levels for special collections The main obstacle for implementing this kind of system is a high price for RFID equipment. IOT refers to the possibility of connecting everyday devices and transferring data between them using RFID. A self-service kiosk which is monitored from the main library to track usage, identify usage trends and make recommendations.
  • 14. Robots and Drones Robots and robotic technologies are now mature enough to leave the research lab and come to the consumer market in large numbers. Robots are becoming more intelligent with AI advancements. In this smart era, robots can provide an improvement to tedious tasks usually performed by librarians, like labouring down aisles to sift through, sort, arrange and pick up books. Robots can steer, navigate and conduct searches for missing, misplaced or out-of-sequence volumes, by means of scanning RFID tags, during off-peak hours or when the institution is closed. Drones would be responsible for delivering the books either to the doorsteps of the users who ordered a book – or to their hands – irrespective of their location. Drones can deliver packages and both to users based on their real time location via GPS.
  • 15. Augmented Reality AR applications in Libraries: o Augmented books o Guided tours o Searching for Media / Additional Information o Gamification o Shelf Maintenance Most of current applications are prototypes: – myLibrARy: University of Applied Sciences Potsdam [access to all of the library's resources] – ShelvAR: Miami University in Oxford, Ohio : [supports librarians to identify books in the wrong place and for inventory]. – LibrARi: an image-based AR app for mobile devices that supports users on finding books in the bookshelf Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view. AR
  • 16. Artificial Intelligence Artificial intelligence can play a critical role in updating and expanding library’s values and ways of work. Shift focus: o The way we navigate the information architecture o How access to collections is achieved o Expediting processes, freeing up finite resources from repetitive labour tasks to focus on enriching the public library experience Challenges: o Attracting new and more diverse audiences o Providing a faster, better user experience o Bridging emerging skill gaps o Competing with today's alternative information sources o Difficulty to show ROI “Can machines think?" "Can machines behave intelligently?“ As a very broad concept, with different levels of intelligence, flexibility and applications, AI strives to mimic the functionality of the human brain and surpasses it in many aspects related to speed, precision and power.
