3 “No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.” -Isaac Asimov

4 Outline Quick historical perspective Description of NRL Research Library Vision of future through three new units: – Information Resources & Services – Naval Research Results – Digital Library Development Other future trends

5 Oral teaching, students of the greats Manuscripts to extend voice and life of teaching Type from printing presses in 18 th century to speed creation and dissemination Digital and web to restore wide dissemination Evolution of Scholarly Communication

6 Main Campus - Washington, D.C. 3,000 Federal Employees [1,500 Scientists & Engineers] 1,000 On-site contractors 130-acre Campus116 Buildings Subject Focus Physics, Chemistry, Electronics, Oceanography, Meteorology, Space Sciences Remote Campuses Stennis, MS; Monterey, CA; and Office of Naval Research The Navy and Marine Corps’ Corporate Research Facility

9 NRL Research Library Mission & Vision The Ruth H. Hooker Research Library exists to enhance & support NRL scientists in accomplishing their research objectives across a range of ongoing Navy and DoD programs through a mix of information services. “Your Partner in Research”

10 Information Resources & Services Providing access to all published information… Journals (including digital transition)Journals (including digital transition) Books & Conference ProceedingsBooks & Conference Proceedings Reference ToolsReference Tools Reference ServicesReference Services

11 Journal Collection Journals: Print journals (1800-present, 1,682 titles) Online journals (1683-present, 2,574 titles) TORPEDO Ultra (1895-present, 2,200 titles) Directly deal with 180 individual journal publishers with 50+ content licenses per year

12 Journal Collection Evolution

13 Potential Future of Journal Subscriptions Mix of Open Access and For Fee Journals More targeted subscriptions with fees/access based upon specific subgroups within organization Larger consortial agreements to provide larger potential pool of titles with broader cost distribution Archival subscription for core, shared access for important, and Document Delivery for rest

14 Books & Conference Proceedings Books/Proceedings – 46,000 print titles with 8,700+ eBooks Primary conference proceedings publishers are SPIE, MRS, AIP, and IEEE RFIDs on entire book/reference collection

15 Reference Tools Print reference – 3,000 titles (Who’s Who, encyclopedia, handbooks, citation indexes, Chemical Abstracts, etc.) Online reference/databases – 3,000 titles (INSPEC, Web of Science, SciFinder, Scopus, etc.)

16 Naval Research Results Capturing the NRL Research portfolio… Research ReportsResearch Reports NRL Published Research ResultsNRL Published Research Results Reports Reference ServicesReports Reference Services

17 Research Reports Print (unclassified and classified) – 600,000 reports Digitized (SIPRnet) – 200,000 reports Microfilm – 1.5M reports Focusing on digitizing all 80k NRL reports (currently have 30k digitized)

18 Capturing corporate knowledge Manage a new form of information, the quasi- published corporate document Volume necessitates a mix of automated and manual processes Merge the unpublished and published information silos Embed rights language into documents

19 NRL Online Bibliography

20 NIH Proposal Require all NIH grant recipients to deposit final draft of article into PUBMED Central PUBMED will make article available to public 6 months after publication unless publisher allows sooner Zerhouni’s motivation: Research Portfolio Management

21 Open Access Goal: To provide free access to all scholarly literature to enhance research Journal Focus: Changing journals to free public access through author fees or ‘brief’ embargo windows Institution Focus: Capturing all pre- published literature created by an institution or on behalf of a funding body

22 Digital Library Development Creating the NRL Digital Library… Digital Content ManagementDigital Content Management Web Services DevelopmentWeb Services Development InfrastructureInfrastructure

23 TORPEDO Ultra Digital Archive 2,100+ journals from 13 publishers 6,000 tech reports 4.0M+ articles locally loaded Full content search across journals & reports Integrated citation linking Convera RetrievalWare Concept Searching

24 Sources of TORPEDO Ultra Content Agency publications – NRL tech reports and press releases In-house digitizing projects – Cooperative efforts with AIP, APS, OSA Data licensed from publishers – Journals (AIP, APS, Elsevier, IEEE/IEE, IoP, Kluwer) – Conference proceedings – Standards

25 Publishers in TORPEDO Ultra Loaded or in process Academic Press Acoustical Society of America American Institute of Physics American Physical Society American Meteorological Society Cell Press Elsevier IEEE/IEE Institute of Physics Kluwer Materials Research Society Optical Society of America Wiley

26 Two possible paths for Integrated Library Systems Realizing previous goal of completeness: – Source of/participation in Single Search – Easier integration/organization of digital content – Intelligent linking of content – Union and Virtual Catalogs Continued marginalization: – Legacy repository for print-based materials – Print-based serials check in – Circulation module for print-based materials

27 NRL Master Journal Database Core journal info: – Title(s) and subject(s) – Formats and holdings – Full content links Current and planned uses: – Source/engine of eJournal pages on Web – Administration of journal subscriptions – Navy-wide union catalog of journals – Foundation for linking services

28 Navy Journal Information Management System (N-JIMS) Web-based, dynamic union catalog of journal information Expands service to be comprehensive Simplify inter-organizational data sharing Provides linking services

29 Naval Knowledge Network Plans Expansion of existing NRL products/services – Web site with Navy Library Directory – N-JIMS and TORPEDO Ultra – Table of Contents Alerting Services Integration of various applications – Single search, intelligent linking, etc. – Web-based Subject Bibliography – N/MCI compliant Library Catalog

30 Wireless Standards StandardSpeed 802.11a54Mbps 802.11b “Wi-Fi”11Mbps 802.11g54Mbps 802.15 “Bluetooth” & PANUp to 20Mbsp 802.16 “Wi-Max”54Mbps+ Radio Frequency ID (RFID) MESH Networks

31 NRL RFID Implementation Deployed 50,000+ digital tags to book and reference collection Finished initial tagging in ~6 months Allows shelf reading in a couple days Checks for weeding candidates, mis-shelved, holds, and ‘missing’ material with one pass Equipment needed: – Self-checkout upgrade – Cataloging station – Handheld reader with ‘triage’ cart

32 NRL Wireless LAN Deployment NRL Networking deployed ‘hot spots’ in conference center, cafeteria, and library Will run on external network allowing access to Internet, but not to internal LAN Library purchasing wireless-enabled laptops Equipment deployed but not yet activated

33 Wardriving

34 The Future… Location e911 – location information coded into all phones OnStar – location and situation based response to emergencies Instant Messaging – ability to know when at computer Interactive cell phones – instant virtual interest matching service

35 The Future… Flexible displays

36 The Future… Convergence
