1 Surviving in a Financial Crisis: Leverage Library Resource & Enhance Service Quality Qing Li 李箐 IEEE Manager, Client Services/UPP PhD Candidate, Syracuse University

2 Librarian University Head Faculty/Student Publisher Sorry, need to cut the budget… No! We can’t work without it…. Sorry, need to increase a little bit

3 What Are We Going to Do? If we just don’t have enough budget … If users stop stepping into our library … If we are short of hands … If we can’t get enough recognition from users as we did… If … Too many “IF”s we can ask 多元化困境

4 Outline 抛磚引玉

5 What if we just can’t get enough budget? 1/15/20155

6 Case I- Improve Reference Service Model Case: University of Arizona Science- Engineering Library (Bracke et al, 2008) –Background  Budget cuts  Changing user behaviors –Goal of Revolution  Enhance the existing reference service model  Establish the new model of “Finding Information in a New Landscape (FINL)” 1/15/20156

7 Traditional Model of Reference Service 1/15/20157 Reference Circulation Photocopy Where is the problem?

8 Participatory Observation 1/15/20158 (Bracke et al. 2008)

9 New Model: Finding Information in a New Landscape (FINL) 1/15/20159 Photocopy All-purpose Desk * Less frustration for users * More freedom for reference librarians * The central location attracts users' attention (Bracke et al. 2008) “Desk Support”

10 What if users stop stepping into our library as they used to do? 1/15/201510

11 Get Into Real Workflow “The Biosciences Report also indicated that the Libraries' web sites were not being used because they weren't part of their normal workflow. Rather than give up on using web sites to disseminate information, why not attempt to make them part of the workflow?” - Nolan et al, /1/1511

12 Case II- Reach Out to Our Users Case: University of Washington Libraries - Reaching Out to Our Users ( Nolan et al, 2008 ) – Background: Changing user behaviors and needs – Solution: reach out end users and improve service quality 1/15/201512

13 Meet Them in Their Spaces 2015/1/1513 ( Nolan et al, 2008 ) Café Hour

14 Lure Them Into Our Spaces 2015/1/1514 ( Nolan et al, 2008 ) Poster Wall Library Scramble

15 Use the Middle Ground That is the Internet 2015/1/1515 ( Nolan et al, 2008 ) Collaborative Blog Virtual Reading Room Course-centered Wiki

16 What if we are short of hands?

17 Case III: Let Us Involve Students IEEE University Partnership Program –Support information literacy goals

18 Support for Library and Branch Education/Outreach IEEE student branches get involved in the library activities via UPP program –Tsinghua University  New Student Library Orientation  Book Purchase Recommendation  Library Resources and Training Promotion on Campus

19 What if we can’t get enough recognition from users as we did? 以攻為守 尋找真正的解決之道

20 First, let us follow up yesterday's panel discussion Too much attention to published papers As Dr Wen mentioned, there are many versions of papers before the final paper, as well as dataset. Why don’t we take advantage of those? Data is actually more valuable compared to the final paper somehow –Paper for citing –Data for producing new papers

21 So, time to think of something else

22 An Emerging Opportunity-E Science/E-Research “What is meant by e-Science? In the future, e- Science will refer to the large scale science that will increasingly be carried out through distributed global collaborations enabled by the Internet. ” National e-Science Center. (2008). Defining e-Science. 1/15/ 大規模資料集 網路化分散式合作

23 A Project Focusing On Open Access to Scientific Data FLOSSmole project in the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University –FLOSS is trying to build a collaboratory for research on open source software development –Co-PI:  Megan Conklin (Elon University)  Kevin Crowston (Syracuse University) –NSF CRI grant # /15/201523

24 Example FLOSS Research as E-Research Before Howison, J (2007) e-Social Science

25 Howison, J (2007) After Make it possible to discover publications from data and data from publications

26 The Majority of Data Projects Are Initiated by Scientific Communities E-Science: –Bioinformatics (Protein data bank, Gene bank) –Earth Science (NASA GES Distributed Active Archive Center) –Particle Physics (Large Hadron Collider) –Medicine and Health (Electronic patient record, medical image) E-Social Science: –MIMAS & EDINA: Census statistics, continuous government surveys, macro-economic time series databanks etc

27 Library and Info Science Makes a Move University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign: Education Program in Data Curation –http://www.lis.illinois.edu/programs/ms/data_curation.htmlhttp://www.lis.illinois.edu/programs/ms/data_curation.html University of North Carolina: DigCCurr –http://www.lulu.com/items/volume_65/ / /4/print/Di gCCurr2009Proceedings_ pdfhttp://www.lulu.com/items/volume_65/ / /4/print/Di gCCurr2009Proceedings_ pdf Syracuse University: Cyberinfrastructure Facilitators –http://www.syr.edu/news/archives/story.php?id=5628http://www.syr.edu/news/archives/story.php?id=5628 ……

28 Data Library as The Future Digital Library “Functions of conventional digital libraries - a set of services for manipulation, management, discovery and presentation” “New types of tools for data transformation, visualization and data mining” –Hey and Trefethen (2003). The Data Deluge. deluge.pdf deluge.pdf

29 Possible Data Curation Services Repository for Data Deposition Support Services Discovery and Access Services Metadata Services Appraisal & Selection Intellectual Property Rights Consultation Large-scale Storage Applications and Tools Smith, L. et al (2008) propose several possible data curation services for the future

30 Are We Ready For It? 參與科研 突顯價值 獲取認同 走出困境
