10 Strategy Going Forward

11 Strategy Going Forward — Context “While predictions of radical change in library and information services are by no means new, a confluence of shifts in technology, changing user demands, and increasing budget pressures are now forcing academic libraries to either adapt or risk obsolescence. The library’s traditional role as a repository for physical books and periodicals is quickly fading, with important implications for space utilization, resource acquisition, and staffing.” Redefining the Academic Library: Managing the Migration to Digital Information Services, Advisory Board Company Available at:

14 Strategy Going Forward 1.Information Literacy/Research Skills 2.Collections 3.Space 4.Research Support 5.Scholarly Communication

15 1. Information Literacy/Research Skills "Wikipedia is like everything else. It's as reliable as your critical-thinking skills. You're responsible for what you read.” — Justin Knapp

16 Justin Knapp, first Wikipedia editor to reach one million edits

17 1. Information Literacy/Research Skills Finding information on the Web is easy, evaluating it is hard Students, especially beginning students don’t understand scholarship

18 1. Information Literacy/Research Skills Strategies Continue significant engagement with beginning students, work on digital learning tools Increase engagement with upper level students Demonstrate connection between information/research skills and persistence and academic success

19 2. Collections Changing approaches to collections will be difficult because collections are central to the way we all think about libraries Much library practice and library values have been based on past approaches to collections

20

21 2. Collections Two drivers of change: 1. Open Access 2. Change from Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time

22 2. Collections Two drivers of change: 1. Open Access — Journals 2. Change from Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time — Books

23 Open Access “Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. OA removes price barriers (subscriptions, licensing fees, pay-per-view fees) and permission barriers (most copyright and licensing restrictions).” – Peter Suber Peter Suber, “Open Access Overview,” at:

24 Open Access Open Access is a disruptive innovation (Clayton Christensen) – New technology – New business model – Starts out as an inferior product – Improves over time and its advantages make it dominant – Adoption follows an S-curve not a straight line David W. Lewis, “The Inevitability of Open Access,” forthcoming in College & Research Libraries September Preprint available at:

25 Open Access David W. Lewis, “The Inevitability of Open Access,” forthcoming in College & Research Libraries September Preprint available at:

26 From January 1, 2012 to August 10, ,919 Articles Published

27 eLife is a researcher-driven initiative for the very best in science and science communication. We promote rapid, fair, and more constructive review. We will use digital media and open access to increase the influence of published works. We commit to serving authors and advancing careers in science. At eLife, Publishing is just the beginning.

28 If we can set a goal to sequence the human genome for $99... then why not $99 for scholarly publishing? PeerJ is an Open Access publisher of scholarly articles. We aim to drive the costs of publishing down, while improving the overall publishing experience, and providing authors with a publication venue suitable for the 21st Century.

29 Implications of Open Access 1.As more journals become open access, the library will have to pay for fewer journals 2.Escape from the grip of monopolistic publishers 3.Libraries in their role of information providers, won’t be part of the system

30 Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time In a typical research library 50% of the books that are purchased never circulate In the past this made sense as an insurance policy

31

32 Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time Now nearly any book can be purchased at any time with very quick delivery Why purchase before the user needs an item if you don’t have to? Since past use is the best predictor of future use, books users “select” are likely to get use in the future

33 Print books delivered nearly as quickly as digital files Digital readers nearly as good as print books For what might come next, see: Mike Matas, “A Next-Generation Digital Book,” TED Talk, March Available at:

34 Implications of Just-in-Case to Just-in-Time 1.Aggressively work at not buying books that will never be used 2.Book purchases will decline 3.But impact on readers will be minimal 1.Will impact scholarly publishers by reducing revenue, they don’t see this coming

35 2. Collections Strategies 1.Hold journal expenditures constant 2.Move to patron-driven-acquisition for e- books this year for both paper and electronic books 3.Except for some new funding for new programs, the materials budget should be able to remain at current levels

36 3. Space Use of library space by students has increased Use of library services and collections by students has declined The opportunity cost of library collections is high

37 Opportunity Costs of Print Collections $5.00 to $13.10 $28.77 $50.98 to $68.43 Life cycle cost based on 3% discount rate. From Paul N. Courant and Matthew “Buzzy” Nielsen, “On the Cost of Keeping a Book,” in The Idea of Order: Transforming Research Collections for 21st Century Scholarship, CLIR, June 2010, available at:

38 3. Space Strategies 1.Continue to redevelop library space to create better, more diverse, space for non- classroom academic work 2.Repurpose current stack space for other uses, probably 5K sq. ft. in the next five years 3.Reconfigure library staff spaces as functions change

39 4. Supporting Research Librarian research support — literature searching, etc. Preserving the results of research – Institutional Repository https://scholarworks.iupui.edu/ https://scholarworks.iupui.edu/ – Electronic Theses and Dissertations – NFS Data Mandate

40 Dr. Robert White, Department of Sociology studies Irish Republicanism

41 5. Scholarly Communication Need to help faculty and students, especially graduate students, understand and take advantage of new scholarly communications vehicles

42

43 5. Scholarly Communication Place for advice on rights Advocate for more open scholarly communication
