29 8 th International Bielefeld Conference29 Library issues 5: workforce development and capacity building NSF Draft Report 2005 Long- lived digital data collections Data scientist - hybrid skills Facilitate collaboration: researchers, data centres, digital libraries & archives communities How does your Library shape up? SWOT analysis

30 8 th International Bielefeld Conference30 STRENGTHS Scholarly communications role Links with academic community Content / collection management / stewardship practice Cataloguing, classification & metadata expertise (e)-Service delivery function WEAKNESSES Historic document tradition Synergies between physical & digital worlds are still evolving Shortage of technical skills Cautious approach to innovation Vision? (its not our problem….) THREATS Paradigm shift in research will out- pace change in libraries Researchers will (only?) use on- demand e-Services Libraries may lose their role in scholarly communications and eResearch workflows OPPORTUNITIES Build on ePrints work & eLearning experience Exploit links with researchers - they need your skills Seek funding to engage in innovative projects & services Develop local, regional, national, global partnerships

31 8 th International Bielefeld Conference31 Libraries: Facing the future? Develop leadership & vision for eResearch engagement Review organisational structures –Extend & re-profile the Faculty/Subject/Reference Librarian role? –Closer collaboration with Computing Services? Provide eServices for data –We do eLearning so why not eResearch? –Include in institutional digital asset management Promote professional development of staff –Awareness-raising activities, new skills –Greater engagement, hybrid roles and hybrid teams Build new partnerships, new business models Facilitate Transformational Change in Libraries
