2 What is influencing libraries? What is influencing libraries? New technologies, ideas, challenges & expectations

3 What do people want from libraries? — To feel welcome — Inviting spaces that belong to everyone — Easy to use, so people can be independent — Our expertise, when and where they need it — Flexibility and innovation — Digital content, accessible anywhere 3

4 Libraries and museums provide the content for the “pipes” Government advertisement, July 2010

5 How have our Libraries changed? Over the last decade: — More people are coming into our library buildings (33% increase since 2006) and more people are using our services online. This is a worldwide trend for libraries. — New technologies have led to large-scale digitisation programs; web and e-content initiatives; virtual reference; web archiving and collaborative access gateways 5

6 National & State Libraries Australasia — NSLA is the organisation where the ten National, State and Territory Libraries of Australia and New Zealand work together to achieve more than each library can on their own — Though we work in different local environments, we have a shared purpose and a commitment to embracing new technology to improve our services 6

9 Re-imagining Libraries In 2008, NSLA agreed on a new shared vision: In collaboration, the National, State and Territory Libraries of Australia and New Zealand will become leaders in empowering people to create, discover, use and transform our collections, content and global information resources. 9

10 — The program began in 2008 and will be completed by 2013. — Initially there were 10 projects but this was reduced to 8 projects during the scoping process. — Re-imagining Libraries is managed by Wendy Quihampton, based in Victoria. Delivering Re-imagining Libraries Wendy Quihampton Re-imagining Libraries Program Manager 10

12 What will our new services look like? Part 1: More of our collections available online and easily found, used, adapted and transformed More of the community’s collections, comments, contributions and expertise enriching our collections More online tools freely available More links to our services from external services 12

13 What will our new services look like? Part 2: Research expertise and deep collection knowledge available when it is needed Easier and central discoverability of information and collections Faster digital delivery, and home delivery services Less registration and authentication Similar services and a common experience 13

14 Australian and New Zealand’s culture and information online Books, articles, newspapers, pictures, manuscripts, maps, sound, oral histories, digital archives, websites … through one integrated search Through central discovery portals:

15 For NSLA Libraries, Re-imagining Libraries is … Leveraging the expertise in all our libraries, to achieve more than each library can on its own Creating an increased trust and shared commitment between our libraries Shifting a larger proportion of our work to benefit the group of libraries Building a more agile, risk-taking and innovative culture Increasing the profile for our libraries in the networked environment 15

16 Achievements to September 2010 Part 1: National Library of Australia launched TROVE Australian Historic Newspapers online National Library of New Zealand’s FIND service Re-imagining Libraries Program Office established Release of information, training materials and guidelines for best practice in digitisation

17 Achievements to September 2010 Part 2: Standardized implementation of free wireless broadband without registration Framework report on community created content Agreed principles for lending, reference, collections, copyright and intellectual property, mobile devices Statement of Intent for the NSLA Workforce

18 New Digital Content & Easy Discoverability 18 Peter Jackson, with the miniature set reproducing 1950s Newtown from his third feature film "Braindead", taken 1 February 1992 by a staff photographer from the Evening Post (Wellington, New Zealand). 4.4 million newspaper pages online by 2011

19 Statement of Intent for the NSLA Workforce (Extract) To ensure the future needs of our customers are met, we will: Work across boundaries Acknowledge there are a range of pathways into the profession Build skills that are transferable to multiple roles Provide staff with the authority and opportunity to take calculated risks to encourage innovation Cultivate a culture of continuous improvement and accountability 19

20 New Principles and Service Frameworks Endorsed in 2009 - 2010: Public Domain Material in NSLA Collections Deeds of Gift Information about Copyright on NSLA Websites Position Statement on Mobile Technology Information and Research Services Principles Collaborative Collecting Principles Principles of Lending Research Guides: Creation Guidelines 20

21 Research Guide example 21 Family history for adopted people, Forgotten Australians and child migrants

22 Outcomes proposed for 2010-2013 Part 1: Implementation of best practice copyright communications Transition to a new business model for reference Increased ingestion of community content Increased access to e-journals through TROVE and FIND and expanded national licensing Collaborative approach to serial collections Acquisition improvements in manuscripts; new partnering processes with donors to capture their knowledge

23 Outcomes proposed for 2010 - 2013 Part 2: Home delivery pilot and improved delivery of digital surrogates Greater automation and seamlessness in all delivery processes Greater enhancement of TROVE and FIND through ongoing ingest of internal and external content Deep-linking to TROVE from other catalogues and websites LibraryHack mash-up competition in 2011

24 LibraryHack Competition 2011 24 The Birthday Party The "Birthday Party" shows a composite of images from the National Library of Australia showing a children’s birthday party; windsurfers on Sydney Harbour; Old Darling Point Ballroom; and part of the Pineapple Estate map, Brisbane. Also wading birds, and a road train on the Nullarbor. Re-Picture Australia, Using library data sets (e.g. images, sound, maps and film) and other public data for mash-up and repurposing. An example using images only:

25 Completing the projects Three projects will be closed by the end of 2010. Principles and guidelines will then be implemented locally. These include copyright, reference and workforce initiatives. Two projects – improving delivery/loan options and encouraging community created content – are likely to be still active in 2012-13. Three remaining projects will shift to a “business as usual” approach during 2011-12. These include expansion of Trove/Find, re-engineered description and cataloguing processes, and collaborative collection management. 25

26 Measuring and valuing collaboration Powering ideas, Dept of Innovation, May 2009 Collaboration stretches our research dollars further, spreads risk, favours serendipity, propagates skills, and builds critical mass. It is increasingly the engine of innovation. Powering ideas, Dept of Innovation, May 2009. NSLA will be evaluating, measuring and reviewing outcomes of the projects as they are implemented. Some initiatives, like free wireless broadband without registration, are already being taken up by the community with enthusiasm. 26

27 What next for NSLA? Advocacy for public funding to increase DIGITISATION and to begin to address DIGITAL PRESERVATION Developing a collaborative approach to supporting LITERACIES and SOCIAL INCLUSION 27
