20 years ago I was
in the libraries business.
Today I am in the
Columbus business.
Pat Losinski, CEO
Columbus Metro. Library
… to be vital to the academic enterprise,
the Libraries must position itself as an
active, engaged participant in solving
university-level problems (Looking outside
ourselves); …
Look to where teaching and research within
the academic disciplines and cultural
acquisition are moving, and you will see the
Libraries skating to the same puck,
sometimes as partner, sometimes as leader,
always engaged.

People should think not so much of the books that have gone into the
National Library but rather of the books that have come out of it.
Seán O’Faoláin
My professional mission as a librarian is this:
Help people build their own libraries. That’s it. That’s all I care about.
Dan Chudnov
Because the purpose and result of absorbing information is always finally
to produce further information … the function of the library must be
understood as one that assists members of the community both in
taking particular positions and in recognizing and assessing the
positions taken by others. Ross Atkinson
A scholar is just a library’s way of making another library. Daniel Dennett
Collections –
reconfigured
around the creative
process …
From consumption to
creation:
• Support process as well
as product, making as
well as taking
• Workflow is the new
content..
• Support for data
management, publishing
and digital scholarship.
• An inside out perspective
increasingly important.

[The technology is]
deeply, deeply
democratic. All
sorts of people can
create, publish,
share... the role of
the Library is to be a
custodian of
knowledge, but more
importantly it is to
be enablers, and to
help citizens
embrace digital
literacy.

By reducing the square feet needed to hold
collections, we can then increase the amount of user
seating offered the university, and house specialty
spaces that support graduate student and faculty
research, including new services such as digital
scholarship, digital humanities, and research data
services which will be coming into being in the next
few months and years. Joe Lucia

Some 19 universities have either moved into a
new library or refurbished an existing one in
the past two years, according to a report by the
Society of College, National and University
Libraries (Sconul), which represents about 170
higher education institutions in the UK and the
Republic of Ireland….
“The quality of light, furniture and general
ambience is now very different in university
libraries – students want inspirational spaces to
learn,” explains Mara Maricevic, head of higher
education at the British Library, where students
regularly queue in the morning for entry all the
way down Euston Road.

… the Libraries must become more
sophisticated in how it identifies and
presents its stories of success and impact to
external stakeholders (Success enables
success).
Damon Jaggars, The Ohio State University
Story –
reconfiguring
around sources
of value to the
community.
Creating value for our host systems always involves
three things:
1. Librarians must understand their host systems;
2. they must understand the source of their claim
to being a legitimate part of their system;
3. and they must do their work well so the system is
better because they are there.
It’s usually far more a matter of asking and listening
than it is of telling and pleading.
Eleanor Joe Rodger

“You might think that the library is at the
intersection of Frederick and George Streets, but it
is actually at the intersection of scholarship,
innovation, creativity and collaboration. And
that’s the road to our future.”

New skillsets & new services to serve new populations
If we were filling all our roles now, including those
we aspire to have, we would need only 25-30%
with library qualifications. We need many other
professionals - project managers, data analysts,
business analysts, marketeers, customer service
experts, etc but not so many librarians.

Divergent: focused on understanding

Convergent: shared directions,
variably executed.
The library should not provide an argument for a
particular case, but demonstrate that there is always
another case to be made. The notion that the library is
a place that has no agenda other than allowing
people to invent their own agendas is what makes it
an indispensable resource for a democracy. It is where
we can learn not just to be readers, but to be the
authors of our own destiny. Fintan O’Toole
3
A shared
agenda
The library
agenda ….
To be an
advocate and a
partner in the
learning and
creating lives
of their users
and in the
memories of
their
communities.
“… the Linen Hall Library was the only
institution in Belfast which could
provide an impartial collection of
books on the conflict upon which we
reporters could rely. … No politician,
no government can conceal the sins
and omissions of the past or conceal
the possibilities for the future when
an ordinary member of the public can
walk into the Linen Hall Library and
find the record of what all sides said in
1969 or 1974, 1989 or today.“

Seán O’Faoláin My professional mission as a librarian is this: Help people build their own libraries. That’s it. That’s all I care about. Dan Chudnov Because the purpose and result of absorbing information is always finally to produce further information … the function of the library must be understood as one that assists members of the community both in taking particular positions and in recognizing and assessing the positions taken by others. Ross Atkinson A scholar is just a library’s way of making another library. Daniel Dennett

  • 41. Creating value for our host systems always involves three things: 1. Librarians must understand their host systems; 2. they must understand the source of their claim to being a legitimate part of their system; 3. and they must do their work well so the system is better because they are there. It’s usually far more a matter of asking and listening than it is of telling and pleading. Eleanor Joe Rodger Value? ROI? Assessment?

  • 54. The library should not provide an argument for a particular case, but demonstrate that there is always another case to be made. The notion that the library is a place that has no agenda other than allowing people to invent their own agendas is what makes it an indispensable resource for a democracy. It is where we can learn not just to be readers, but to be the authors of our own destiny. Fintan O’Toole 3 A shared agenda
  • 55. The library agenda …. To be an advocate and a partner in the learning and creating lives of their users and in the memories of their communities.
  • 56. “… the Linen Hall Library was the only institution in Belfast which could provide an impartial collection of books on the conflict upon which we reporters could rely. … No politician, no government can conceal the sins and omissions of the past or conceal the possibilities for the future when an ordinary member of the public can walk into the Linen Hall Library and find the record of what all sides said in 1969 or 1974, 1989 or today.“ Robert Fisk, Journalist Community memories: Libraries and anamnesis

The evolving scholarly record: http://www.oclc.org/research/publications/library/2014/oclcresearch-evolving-scholarly-record-2014-overview.html This is how we framed out the scholarly record in terms of nature and scope of what it might contain.   Start with published outcomes: the reporting of results, conclusions, ideas and so forth from a particular scholarly inquiry. These outcomes are still the coin of the realm for scholarly activities, so they are privileged here at the center of the picture; A lot of these outcomes take the form of text-based materials like books and journal articles, but often supplemented by additional materials such as video, graphics, and interactive programs.   Rest of scholarly record divided into two broad areas: process and aftermath   Process: process of scholarly inquiry; process by which outcomes are produced. Identified three categories of materials generated in this phase in which there is interest in including them as part of the scholarly record: Method materials related to the methodology of scholarly inquiry (e.g., software, computer models, digital lab notebooks, sampling frames, experimental protocols, instrument calibrations) Evidence raw materials/inputs to scholarly work (e.g., data sets, survey results, new or enhanced primary source documents, links to findings from other scholarly works); Discussion refining and improving ideas, methods, conclusions (e.g., pre-prints, listserv/blog discussions, conference presentations, annotated commentary, grant proposals).   Anchoring outcomes directly to the methods employed, evidence used, and formative discussions conducted during the process of scholarly inquiry helps contextualize and deepen our understanding of these outcomes, facilitate replicability, and leverage results into new research.   Once the outcomes from a research project have been formally published or otherwise made available, scholarly activities surrounding that piece of work may still continue in the “aftermath” phase. Activities in the aftermath phase may include Discussion (through similar channels as those in the process phase, but also post-publication formal reviews and commentary); Revision published work can be revised in various ways (the work may be enhanced with additional findings; errors may be corrected or clarifications made, etc.) Re-use (the work may be edited or re-packaged into new forms, such as conference presentations, summaries, blog posts, versions for the “popular media”, etc.).   Not saying that everything discussed here will end up in the scholarly record. But picture represents the maximal scope and depth of materials regarding which there is increasing interest in systematic collection and curation.   Note that some of the materials in the outlying components are becoming or might become outcomes in their own right. Data sets are a good example: in some disciplines the publication of an important data set is now considered a first-class scientific outcome.
  10. Libraries supporting community creation. Sacramento City Library provides a community-based publishing center for authors throughout the region http://www.saclibrary.org/Services/I-Street-Press The library offers workshops for local authors interested in self-publishing books and provides book printing services using an Expresso Book Machine. Among the emerging authors that have benefited from the I Street Press program is Anisa Mahmoud Ulrich, who self-published a memoir of her experiences as an Afghan refugee. Her book, Lifting the Chaderi, has since been acquired by several public and academic libraries in the US and gains additional lift and discoverability through WorldCat. http://www.worldcat.org/title/lifting-the-chaderi-my-life-as-an-afghan-refugee/oclc/870683419 Other public libraries are partnering with the e-book publishing platform Smashwords to provide local authors with a low-cost publishing option. Books that document local communities and cultures are acquired for the library’s collection.
  11. Allen County Public Library ( Fort Wayne, Ind) selects a day every year where they encourage the community to take photos and contribute them to the library’s digital archives. They’ve been doing this event annually since 2008. All photos are achieved digitally through the ACPL’s CONTENTdm application.
  12. HOMAGO (Hang Out, Mess Around, Geek Out) philosophy that many public libraries have adopted to extend homework support to personal interest exploration, digital learning and idea creation. Pioneered by Chicago PL’s YouMedia Teen center and supported by learning development research, IMLS helped jump start many PL projects to help redesign teen library spaces & programming to support informal learning.

  17. Pic from .. http://www.designboom.com/architecture/snohetta-the-temple-university-library-philadelphia-01-26-2016/ Temple University will spend a projected 170M on the library renovation, planned for completion in 2018. The have selected the same architecture firm (Snøhetta) that built the new NCSU James B. Hunt library and the Ryerson University Student Learning Center in Toronto. Snøhetta has also been selected for a library remodel at the University of Calgary. As part of its renovation plans, Temple University had to present the library design to the city architectural review board, which was very pleased with the design. The design includes elements intended for the enjoyment of all citizens of Philadelphia, not only students of the university.

Along with a new generation of library users (& librarians) the demand for new skills are also becoming common place. At Anythink Libraries in Rangeview District, CO (https://www.anythinklibraries.org/) staff have descriptive job titles that speak to the creative and blended skill sets required to work in a dynamic public library today. Job titles such as guide, concierge and wrangler (sounds like a rodeo ) Anythink Library job titles & descriptions: Wrangler: part product placement, part inventory control, part display technician (https://www.anythinklibraries.org/sites/default/files/imce_uploads/wrangler2009.pdf) Guide: part customer education, part reference advocate, part event planning (http://www.anythinklibraries.org/sites/default/files/imce_uploads/Adultguide2011.pdf) Concierge: part customer service, part technology troubleshooting, part product promotion (https://www.anythinklibraries.org/sites/default/files/imce_uploads/concierge2009.pdf)

  41. Note: this slide has one animation inserting the Instagram image from DPL In the wake of community tragedies, PLs have taken on the roles as safe spaces and community healer/rebuilders. Obviously, this is not part of any library’s specific strategy to serve their communities in new and different ways, but when tragedies such as the Dallas Police shootings, the Pulse nightclub shootings in Orlando, the Ferguson riots, Sandy Hook school shootings in Newton, CT strike communities, Public Libraries are often the first to respond providing safe spaces for dialogue, discourse, grief and community expression. And in some cases they also become the archivists of such expression. Image: Dallas Public Library PostIt Note memorial. The Library, in partnership with the Dallas Police Dept, is currently working to preserve and curate all the memorabilia and community sentiments that were left at the fallen police officer memorial. Insert shows just a small sampling of items that they collected and will be preserving as part of the collection.
