Joint Information Systems Committee Q. How do you see the future of libraries? Are they becoming obsolete? A. For scientific research, probably. There is a need for purchasing which should be done nationally by specialists but most of the rest will be web-based. (Peter Murray- Rust, Cambridge University ) Libraries are providing these high growth fields [information provision to scientists] value in the acquisition of resources - for example licensing costly journal collections - but otherwise have been relatively absent from the workflow… The library is generally becoming less visible and the perceived dependency on the library reduced (humanities academics having more dependency than scientists). The report summarises this as although librarians may still be providing significant value to their constituency, the value of the brand is decreasing ( Ithaka)

Chaos for eveyone …the current system is so brittle, and the alternatives are so speculative, that theres no hope for a simple and orderly transition from State A to State B. Chaos is our lot; the best we can do is identify the various forces at work shaping various possible futures. Clay Shirky

Joint Information Systems Committee software is designed around institutional processes for managing local print collections – acquisition, accession, circulation, restricted loan, reservation - these were the automated manual systems. electronic materials management and access to global resources requiring different processes which have been appended to these systems over time.

Joint Information Systems Committee Libraries can do much more to open up their metadata for re-use. Players such as OCLC and TALIS already offer platforms that enable library data to be re-used. OCLCs Worldcat…enables the find this book in a library link from Google Scholar…begs the question of 180 or so separate OPACs alongside …M25, COPAC and SUNCAT. The costs of this duplication must be considerable and the limitations of this approach increasingly frustrating to users of the Google Generation.

Joint Information Systems Committee investigate 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.

Further insights are gained by analysing purchasing histories, facilitated by the use of store loyalty cards. Libraries could gain valuable insights into user behaviour by data mining borrowing and uncovering usage trends.

Joint Information Systems Committee [The challenge is] how can local institutional needs and for global discovery develop sympathetically and efficiently together The difficulties [arise from] our changed requirements and the fact that we don't appear to be able to afford new systems to meet them; therefore traditional vendors don't develop those systems, and open source systems so far seem to replicate the old systems.
Joint Information Systems Committee HEFCE funded SCONUL Shared Services feasibility What, if any, opportunities exist to develop a shared service response (possibly Open Source) within the current LMS landscape Whether there is a viable business case and delivery model to support any such opportunities
Joint Information Systems Committee 4 Library vendors 80% of the market Vendors are responding but current systems not well placed for future scenarios. Shared Services provide benefits not generated by market forces. Early draft, unpublished.
Joint Information Systems Committee 83 institutional responses Minimal differences based on Institution focus (Research, Teaching, Specialist), Service type (e.g. Converged or not) or Library Management System. Over 60% of the respondents are involved in or planning some form of shared services activity. Whilst 89% stated they were open to any arrangement that delivers benefits, a significant number supported a governance mechanism operated by a sector agency in the style of JANET (UK). There was little appetite for an outside operator (17%) or even a single HEI (35%) leading and recruiting partners.
Joint Information Systems Committee 92% interest in a shared service undertaking e-Journals licensing; 92% interest in a shared service undertaking e-Books licensing; 84% interest in a shared system for Electronic Resource Management; 77% interest in a shared service undertaking Electronic Resource Management. High level of readiness to consider Open Source software (30% with a further 45% neutral)
Joint Information Systems Committee Principal interest is clearly focused around electronic resource licensing and management and general cataloguing (all scoring 84% or greater interest) Services that would facilitate more efficient and value added resource discovery fell in to the next group with over 50% interest –OPAC, search / locate, ILL –Open Data services –Support functions such as forums and help desk

October 6, 2009 SkyRiver Connects Libraries With New Bibliographic Utility New service offers clear, cost-effective choice over current marketplace offerings Emeryville, CASkyRiver today publicly announces the launch of its new bibliographic utility service. Already in use in both public and academic libraries, SkyRiver provides a clear, low-cost alternative for cooperative cataloging.

Robert Darnton, Harvard University Libraries are about the future of society and free and democratic access to knowledge; the challenge is how to do this in this new global environment… Sarah Thomas, University of Oxford
