2 Membership Oregon & Washington Private & Public, 2-year & 4-year Colleges, Universities, Community colleges Members serving 600 – 42,000 students (FTE)

4 Conferences & Workshops  ARL/ACRL Institute on Scholarly Communication (Portland, December 1-3, 2008) Cooperative Collection Development  YBP agreement  Distributed Print Repository Courier Service  250 libraries served through 76 dropsites in Oregon, Washington, & Idaho  400,000 packages per year Digital Services  Summit search engine, digital collections, institutional repositories, etc. Major Programs

5 Electronic Resources  62 libraries in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Hawaii  Databases, ejournals, etc. Northwest Digital Archives  31 libraries and archives in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska  EAD finding aids, union database, digital content Summit Resource Sharing System  36 institutions in Oregon and Washington  9.2 million unique titles, 28.7 million items  Requests: 456,109 last year  Fulfillments: 433,117 last year Major Programs

6  Regional Library Services Center  Cooperative Collection Development  Digital Services Program  Northwest Digital Archives  ARL/ACRL Institute on Scholarly Communication  Next Generation Systems  Data Harvesting  Discovery: Aquabrowser, Encore, Endeca, Local development, WorldCat Local, Primo, etc.  Resource Sharing Systems  Integrated Library Systems (ILS) Strategic Agenda “Moving to the Network Level” – April 2006 Retreat

7 Three-pronged effort 1.Negotiate 2.Communicate 3.Explore alternatives Accelerated work on resource sharing

8 Discovery  Group Catalog on the WorldCat.org platform  Option for member libraries to implement WorldCat Local Delivery  Navigator Request Engine  Virtual Document eXchange (VDX)  III Circulation gateway – development Integrated solution WorldCat Navigator

9 Key to first-rate functionality and labor saving Technical approaches  Single platform  Robust implementation of standards (e.g., NCIP)  Workaround  Complex workaround(s) More on the Circulation Gateway Future approaches to circ functionality?

10 Motivations Leadership opportunity Foster competition in the marketplace Cost effective Cross-platform Merging of ILL and circ workflows Solution based on standards Strategic partnership with OCLC Excellence in service to patrons Improved discovery system More trading partners, more materials available Continuous improvement Increase in resource sharing

11 Time Contract Technical Transition Changes in workflow Governance and growth  Planning for success Challenges

12 Moving services to the highest appropriate network level Broader Implications Global Catalog Regional Catalog Local ILS Disintegrating the ILS? cataloging, discovery, resource sharing, … next? Importance of interoperability (standards) Opportunity to simplify?

13 Implementation

14 Implementation Story: 2 themes Not Not: implementation of a product Design and Development Design and Development of a product, then adapting it – and us – to replace an existing program Time & Resources

15 Implementation: drivers  Schedule: Firm shutdown date  Timing: Peak requesting period  Characteristics of members’ individual systems  Developer challenges: organization; combining multiple services while developing a new, integrated service (not just a big ILL)

16 Implementation: logistical challenges  No new staffing  Maintain existing system, & moratorium  37 different sites  Varying skills, expertise, institutional memory  Varying hardware, software, etc.  Moving targets  Service features still in design  Schedules (dates)

17 Implementation: program challenges  Policies  Policies: keep the policies (what is loaned, to whom, and for how long) while using new tools to deliver the program  Procedures  Procedures: some are important, some were simply in response to the specific technology

18 Implementation: strategies  All hands on deck  Firm deadlines (that get amended)  Frequent communication  Extended communication using liaisons

19 Implementation: who Council (Board of Directors ) Executive Committee Contract negotiation Implementa- tion Team CatalogHoldingsReclamationHotlinks INN-Reach Shutdown Tech groupCirc-ILL Communica- tion Team

20 Implementation: planning & doing  Develop a draft plan  Review  Amend  Review  Adopt

21 Implementation: logistics How we meet How we work Costs (central vs. local)

22 Implementation: setup  Designing software and processes: Write; test; re-write  Submitting detailed technical information to OCLC  Requesting detailed technical information from members (vs. going in and getting it)

23 Implementation: configuration  At OCLC  At local sites  Hello, is anyone there?

24 Implementation: technical challenges Security software Security policies Local setup Varying experience, expertise, institutional memory

25 Portland State University–Quick Facts  University size:  Student headcount =27,000, FTE =17,000  Library collection size:  Approx. 1.3 million titles, 2+ million volumes  18,900 journal subscriptions, 70,000 accessible e-journals  Using Innovative Millennium & ILLiad  Joined Summit system in 2002

26 Consortial Borrowing – PSU Trends  Second highest requests across Alliance last two years  Lending fulfillments 07/08 = 40,919  Borrowing fulfillments 07/08 = 37,618  Lending/Borrowing growing annually:  Lending increased 11% 06/07-07/08  Borrowing increased 4.3% 06/07-07/08  How will WC Navigator impact PSU?

27 Summit comparison – 2005/2006

28 Summit comparison – 2006/2007

29 Summit comparison – 2007/2008

30 Interlibrary Loan – PSU Trends

31 Anticipated: Requesting will increase!  Summit and ILL requests will increase  UW’s reported increases for WC Local:  62% increase in Summit borrowing  114% increase in ILL borrowing requests  PSU implementing WC Local in mid  Snapshots of patron interface still in development stage…

34 Request Summit Item Button presented when item is available for requesting from Summit libraries

35 Find Your Library Button presented when item is an article citation or otherwise not requestable through Summit system

36 OpenURL: Group Resolver

37 Request from Interlibrary Loan Button presented when item is not held by any Summit libraries

38 Resource sharing - Convergence?  Boundaries becoming blurred, systems more and more integrated  Staff will be using what essentially are two ILL systems: NRE/VDX and ILLiad  Should “Resource sharing” units on the staff side become more integrated too over time?

39 Blended Service Desk  How to prepare for the huge increase? Idea of Blended Service Desk under consideration  Co-location of ILL and Summit staff  Efficient use of physical space  Cross-training of staff  Sharing of student assistants  Some centralized paging of items?

40 Other issues/points:  Network-level cataloging is new for us!  Some staff workarounds needed as more integration of NRE/VDX with Millennium is developed  Final thought: Development partnership is a lot of work, but the increased discovery, access and potential of the new Summit system and WC Local will be worth it!
