Shaping the academic library of the future: adapt, empower, partner, engage


The tradition of the Stellenbosch University Annual Library Symposium of being a platform for discussing new library and information services and developments will continue at the 14th Annual Library Symposium in November 2016. The discussion will be turned to the shaping of the academic library of the future. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of adapting to users’ needs, adapting to new roles as librarians, adapting as a library, empowerment of staff and clients and the importance of partnerships and engagement.

The theme is partly based on the recent OCLC report, Shaping the Library to the life of the user: adapting, empowering, partnering, engaging. In this report it becomes clear that “research and learning needs are changing. Higher education is reconfiguring. As a result of these massive changes, the library must pivot and adapt”. The following core themes are mentioned in this report: to empower users, to empower the library, form partnerships and to engage the campus community. The report advises libraries to be able to “move from offering a fixed set of services to a ‘constant beta’ mode of service evolution” .

Three different sessions will focus on the following themes, all related to the shaping of the academic library of the future:

Digital innovation: Topics of this session may include Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Research Data Management, Big Data, E-learning, Digital Humanities, Next Generation Systems.

Collaboration / Partnerships : Partnerships with OCLC, SANLIC and other consortia as well as other collaboration possibilities will be discussed.

The user experience: Academic staff, researchers and students of local universities will share their expectations as users of academic libraries.

  3. 3. Book: ★ Theresa Willingham, Jeroen de Boer: Makerspaces in Libraries
  4. 4. “What Makers are doing is taking the DIY movement online– “making in public”—which introduces network effects on a massive scale.” A cultural norm to share those designs and collaborate with others in online communities. The use of common design file standards that allow anyone, if they desire, to send their designs to commercial manufacturing services to be produced in any number, just as easily as they can fabricate them on their desktop. People using digital desktop tools to create designs for new products and prototype them (“digital DIY”) Chris Anderson: Makers, The New Industrial Revolution, p. 21 Maker Movement
  5. 5. Makerspaces: Exist to bring individual makers into a space with shared resources; Are spaces in which experienced makers can teach skills and guide the progress of newer makers; Allow for the sharing ideas and designs not just within the makerspace, but outward to the larger world of makers; Enable individuals to collaborate on projects and bring multiple perspectives and skill sets together; Encourage individuals to experiment and discover through tinkering with technologies and products and to approach making with a spirit of play.

  7. 7. Lawrence Lessig “The importance is that technique has been democratized. These tools of creativity have become tools of speech. It is a literacy for this generation. This is how our kids speak. It is how our kids think. It is what your kids are as they increasingly understand digital technologies and their relationship to themselves.”

  9. 9. Cory Doctorow “Damn right libraries shouldn’t be book-lined Internet cafes. They should be book-lined, computer- filled information-dojos where communities come together to teach each other black-belt information literacy, where initiates work alongside noviates to show them how to master the tools of the networked age from the bare metal up.”

  21. 21. “It’s the oldest profession in the world, apart from the other one.” Ellen Tise, about librarianship:
  22. 22. Public Library makerspace? Makerspaces or FabLabs are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries they often have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, and more.
  23. 23. Interdisciplinairy learning Invention Studio at Georgia Tech http://inventionstudio.gatech.edu/our-space/
  24. 24. Academic Library makerspace? “By and large, these makerspaces are not associated with any one department. Indeed, that's the argument that many librarians are making about opening makerspaces with them. The library is already open to the entire campus community -- students and faculty of all disciplines.” Audrey Watters: http://hackeducation.com/2013/02/06/the-case-for-a-campus-makerspace
  25. 25. “Libraries provide resources for not only consuming information, but also for generating new information and research, which is at the heart of any academic institution. Makerspaces and 3D printing provide the perfect opportunity for the generation of new knowledge.” Pryor, S. (2014), “Implementing a 3D printing service in an academic library”, Journal of Library Administration, Vol. 51 No. 1, pp. 1-10. Academic Library makerspace?
