Revolution? What revolution?...

Your mileage may vary…

Whatever happened to business as usual? del.icio.us

From David Lankes, http://ptbed.org

On your campus, who’s responsible for…? Collections of books and journals Course management software Database purchases Information resource instruction Application innovation Bibliographic management software Institutional repositories / digital resources management

The other side of the coin—what resources and services does your library provide that might be provided by someone else?

#1. Erosion aka , gradual disintegration The trends are against us. If we do nothing different, our influence will erode, and we will become, once more, collections of books, primarily of interest to scholars in the humanities. For a time….

#2. Disintermediation Obsolete? ”

#3. Metamorphosis Modest changes haven’t served us well in recent years. We’re making marginal improvements but to existing library resources and services—and in an environment of disruptive technologies.

Our responses to environmental change and disruptive technologies have been essentially tactical. What is needed is a more strategic response , more future- and goal-oriented, more focused on (forgive me) “the big picture.” “ Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.”

Five strategic responses

Creating digital libraries of rare and unique holdings Establishing institutional repositories for research and other intellectual capital Providing the infrastructure for open access journals David Lewis, in the May 2008 C&RL News , advocates commitment to a curatorial role, characterized by…

Increasing partnerships with faculty to enhance learning outcomes— “the embedded librarian” Transforming the library into a teaching department? MLS  PhD?... Crowley (2001), Guskin and Marcy (2003), and Smith (2006) all make strong cases for the increasing importance of the teaching role.

Transforming the library into a teaching department? MLS  PhD?...

Be proactive, “become a salesperson” Leave the library Embrace transparency Grossman (2006), Casey and Stephens (2008), and others have spoken to the need to change how we think about communicating with stakeholders.

Be proactive, “become a salesperson”

Leave the library

Embrace transparency

Reactive response - the Brandeis model, aka tiered reference… First popularized in mid- to late-1990s. Example: IPFW (http://www.lib.ipfw.edu/706.0.html) Crowley (2001) , Grossman (2006) , and Lewis (2007) suggest rethinking traditional desk reference.

Example: IPFW (http://www.lib.ipfw.edu/706.0.html)

On-demand reference by e-mail, chat, IM, FaceBook, MySpace…. Migration to information literacy program – emphasis on teaching, relationships with students (“My Librarian”) Tiered, with “on call” librarians during most open hours Sontag and Palsson (2007) call the Brandeis model “the first step toward eliminating the desk altogether.”

“ Technologies to Watch” (from The Horizon Report ) Social computing (del.icio.us) Personal broadcasting (blogs, podcasting) Cell phones (Google Locator / 1 800 466-4411) The Horizon Report (2006), Brantley (2008), Rainie (2008), and others emphasize socio-technological responses.

“ Libraries must change. We need to be focused on engaging the world, empowering people, thinking much more ambitiously, and sometimes taking risks that we think might border on foolish.”

Libraries Must Be Portable. Libraries Must Tell Stories. Libraries Must Help People Learn. Libraries Must Help Forge Memory. Libraries Must Study the Art of War. Brantley’s “Library Mantras” — a selection

Libraries Must Be Portable.

Libraries Must Tell Stories.

Libraries Must Help People Learn.

Libraries Must Help Forge Memory.

Libraries Must Study the Art of War.

Five strategic responses

For Discussion 1. How do these responses compare / contrast with traditional library functions, i.e., technical and public services, collection development, preservation?... 2. How might these responses be informed by Christian values and beliefs? 3. What are the implications of these responses for LIS education?
