3 IAEA 13th INIS/ETDE Joint Technical Committee Meeting, Friday, 21 October Tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today! - African proverb 1. Purpose What the organization stands for? The purpose should be more than just its products. INIS: Organizing the world's nuclear information and making it universally accessible 2. Business model The way we carry out our business often delineates that crucial difference between ‘us’ and ‘them’. INIS: A self-governed, not for profit, collaborative system of member states and international organizations bringing benefits to the world’s nuclear scientific and technical community. 3. Technology and work methodology Used for achieving business goals, making products or delivering special services. INIS: Future technology and work methodology should be inseparable from the purpose of INIS and needs to be creative and innovative in order to achieve it, while supporting the business model. 4. Growth Sustainable growth driven by uniqueness and quality. INIS: Quality growth achievable through the continuous use of reliable nuclear information provided by recognized sources, preferably as full texts. Four elements of future direction

5 IAEA 13th INIS/ETDE Joint Technical Committee Meeting, Friday, 21 October Technology leverage Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication! - Leonardo da Vinci Maximize the use of Google-based INIS Collection search (features, outside use) Simplified bibliographic metadata set; improved WinFIBRE Diversification of INIS relevant input (harvesting, open access) Streamlined INIS data processing system Enhanced visibility and accessibility (INIS Collection as open access repository) Content standardization (XML, Unicode, PDF/A long-term archival format) Multilingualism (interface, search) Mobile Website

6 IAEA 13th INIS/ETDE Joint Technical Committee Meeting, Friday, 21 October User experience Opportunities come from sharing information and connecting people! Reliability, accuracy and timeliness of available information resources Functionality and user needs (personalization) Google-type search experience Fast, simple to use, engage beginners and attract experts, design for the world, innovative, plan for today‘s and tomorrow‘s business Social networking, bookmarking, tagging Accessibility from different devices (PCs, mobiles) Information mining (content, statistics) Visibility and promotion
