An Introduction to the JISC TILE Project TILE was tasked with three objectives in relation to the onward development of HE library and Information Environment services to investigate the scope & scale of Library 2.0 in UK HE –i.e. current library uses of Web 2.0 applications and services to identify the most significant related challenges (‘Pain Points’) facing library systems development –& document using the methodology of the international e- Framework to propose a high level library domain model positioning these challenges in a library ‘business process’ context –which might assist library service partners to develop a shared articulation of service objectives and functions
TIEL Towards Implementation of Library 2.0 & the e-Framework First year History students searching for Napoleon Also borrowed … They downloaded … They rated this resource as … They also recommended... Ken ChadDavid Kay Ian Chowcat Phil Nicholls Paul Bacsich Mark van Harmelen
Supermarkets “Supermarkets gain valuable insights into user behaviour by data mining purchases and uncovering usage trends. Further insights are gained by analysing purchasing histories, facilitated by the use of store loyalty cards.” Dave Pattern, University of Huddersfield – TILE Workshop – December 2008
Libraries…? “Libraries could gain valuable insights into user behaviour by data mining borrowing and uncovering usage trends. Further insights are gained by analysing borrowing histories, facilitated by the use of library cards.” Dave Pattern, University of Huddersfield – TILE Workshop – December 2008
Concentrate and characterise the intelligence (patterns of user activity) existing in HE systems at institutional level in order to deliver ‘webscale’ services of value throughout the community – to undergraduates & researchers, to lecturers & librarians and the institutions themselves.

With critical mass of activity data from ‘Day 1’, this brings to life the opportunity to embrace and curate user contribution (UGC including ratings, reviews, bookmarks, lists) Barriers to contribution & use of contributed information will be as low as possible Benefits of contribution will be clearly visible with real promise of being useful
