Supporting Education and Research Linking Digital Libraries and Learning Environments Paul Bailey Programme Manager, JISC Development Group
Supporting Education and Research The DiVLE Programme Linking Digital Libraries and Virtual Learning Environments programme Ten projects in HE only to explore the technical, cultural and organisational issues of joining digital library resources within institutions to VLEs. Tools developed, also in Exchange for Learning
Supporting Education and Research Exam Papers LMS Digital Repository Resource Heron e-Reserve Digital Library Resources (Content Rich) A basic model Virtual Learning Environment (Content Free) Course and Activities List Search
Supporting Education and Research The DiVLE Models The very technical bit

Supporting Education and Research Exploring the Cultural Issues Linking libraries with VLEs
Supporting Education and Research A simple/cynical view…. The Academic Library Virtual Learning Environment Digital Library
Supporting Education and Research Supermarket analogy "….views other staff as simply servicing the wishes of academics…. Selecting resources from the 'shelves'….helped by librarians as 'shop assistants'. …reach(ing) the 'checkout', they hand over these resources in order for copyright clearance by the 'cashier', then a 'packer', who embeds the material in the VLE ('carrier bag') and returns it to the academic." DEVIL Project
Supporting Education and Research Some Cultural Issues explored by an academic, librarian, learning technologist and student and yourselves
Supporting Education and Research Disclaimer The views expressed are not necessarily (although they MIGHT be) representative of conditions at any real institution... and definitely not those of the presenters, who absolve themselves from all responsibility for any twinges of self-recognition amongst the audience."
Supporting Education and Research The Academic My reading list represents my expertise, thats why I wont let the library have it…
Supporting Education and Research The Student I know more about using the VLE than my lecturer does – he needs some training in making more effective use of technology.
Supporting Education and Research The Librarian It is all about getting academics and the learner closer to the library….
Supporting Education and Research The Learning Technologist Ive written lots of tools to help academics link libraries and VLEs, but they wont use them!
Supporting Education and Research The Academic The best materials students get are the ones I write myself You cant let students use the web as they cant select good from bad
Supporting Education and Research The Student My tutor tells me to go and research my assignment on the internet…but it takes me hours to find the relevant information as I dont have any information skills.I just want to be able print it out and why does it take so long to download?
Supporting Education and Research The Student Why do we have to plough through textbooks on screen? Surely there are better ways of using the technology?
Supporting Education and Research Implications for libraries New responsibilities for digital assets Exposing services More responsive to needs New roles e.g. electronic copyright clearance Converge towards sector standards in handling meta-data Central vs local resources Ethics vs service …….
Supporting Education and Research Implications for learners Bandwidth to access resources New skills for information management Responsibility for own learning e.g. create a '"my resources" list associated with each course
Supporting Education and Research Implications for staff/librarians Collaboration between libraries, IT staff, learning technologists, academics, vendors, etc. Asset management –copyright –archiving of electronically provided courses –promotion of the electronic repositories which are provided by the university
Supporting Education and Research Implications for academics Staff development. –finding a structured and balanced range of resources for a course –interact with VLEs differently to use of digital repositories –relationship with support services Ownership' of resources (IPR)
