15 15 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y Lund University Libraries Reorganisation 2001 onwards – deconstructing existing centralised library structure – developing the Lund University Library Network Today: – Faculty & Department Libraries – Lund University Library – The Library Head Office

16 16 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y Faculty & Department Libraries Managed, funded and operated by faculties and departments Day-to-day library services User training Providing work facilities and work space for students Engaged in support for teaching & learning Engaged in e-publishing support, counseling & advocacy Moving towards bigger units Near the end users

17 17 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y Lund University Library Swedish Print – Legal Deposit & Lending Special Collections Manuscripts Managing collections in remote locations Generel Service Point Digitization Activities

18 18 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y The Library Head Office Policies, Standards, Common Projects and Activities, Cooperation in the Network Operating the Library Automation System Management of E-resources Developing digital library services E-publishing (Institutional Repository) Scholarly Communication – Open Access Bibliometrics – Research Assessment Support for Teaching & learning

19 19 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y The Network of Libraries – Pro & Cons Cons: – Not necessarily the cheap way of running library services – on the other hand: The libraries are providing a lot more than library services – Not always obvious who is responsible for what, can generate intense discussions, issues can fall between chairs – on the other hand: This gives opportunities for entrepreneurship

20 20 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y The Network of Libraries – Pro & Cons Pros: – The decentralized structure and the close cooperation & communication between faculty libraries and the research and education environment at the faculty level cater for lots of ideas, projects for improved services, which in turn inspires other libraries and the network as such – Constant development and improvements in services & applications based on input from the faculty librarians

21 21 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y The Network of Libraries – Pro & Cons Pros: – The structure with the network of libraries is very sensitive to needs and demands from users (researchers, teachers & students) – Being closer to the research and teaching & learning processes give the libraries and the library network opportunities to bring the compentencies & knowledge in play to produce ideas and proposals to make the primary processes (research, teaching & learning) more efficient and productive.

22 22 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y The Network of Libraries – Tangible Benefits Media Costs : – Centralization of management, provision and funding of e-resources (e-journals, databases, e-books etc.) 2001: 0.5 mill $ 2005: 2.5 mill $ – Total costs – all media (print & electronic) : reduction by 5%!! Reduction of handling costs excluded!

23 23 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y The Network of Libraries – Tangible Benefits The Library Head Office and the Faculty Libraries involved in – E-publishing Pre/Postprints, Dissertations, Theses – Support to teaching & learning Close cooperation between faculty librarians & teachers/students in regard to (digitized) course literature Improvements in Information Literacy Projects Implementation of the Bologna-process – Bibliometrics & Research Assessment More than Library Services!

35 35 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y Lund University Open Access Policy Resolution (taken by the University Board) In order to maximize the number of open access publications the Board of Lund University strongly recommends that: – Researchers at Lund University, if possible, publish in journals with open access – If no equivalent open access journal is available, researchers choose a journal allowing parallel publishing/deposition of the article – Transfer of copyright be avoided. As a minimum the author's right to parallel publishing must be retained – Lund University work for the transition of scholarly journals to a publishing model, where articles either are made freely available to the reader directly or through parallel publishing

43 43 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y In conclusion The new structure with a network of libraries is characterized by a division of responsibilities where – Faculty libraries takes care of the day-to-day library services and due to the close relationships with their community can be involved in other kinds of support to research, teaching & learning – The Lund University Library takes care of the Legal Deposit, special collections etc. – The Library Head Office concentrates on policy making,coordination within the library network, development and operation of digital library services – The Library Head Office in cooperation with the Faculty Libraries develops & provides applications and services for the support for research, teaching & learning The new structure has created a lot of dynamics and has provided a lot of opportunities for forward looking library staff!

44 44 L U N D U N I V E R S I T Y In conclusion The new structure has made it possible to – Not only make the traditional processes of importing scientific information to the university more up-to-date and cost- efficient – But as well demonstrate that the qualifications of library (and increasingly other) professionals can add significant value to the important processes of dissemination and communicating (”exporting”) the research results produced by the university to teaching & learning processes by facilitating closer cooperation between teachers & librarians to research assessment & decision making by raising awareness in regard to scholarly communication issues in Lund & elsewhere
