Description

An overview of some issues around the design and future of library catalogs in a network environment.

Workflow Attention Gravity: the long tail

Gravity: the long tail

Database > website > workflow

Prefabricated (e.g. CMS) Self assembled digital identity

Get into the flow Disclose into other environments Now : The library must build its services around user workflow Then : The user built workflow around the library

Get into the flow

Disclose into other environments

Competition for attention Now : Attention scarce, resources abundant Then : Resources scarce, attention abundant

Competition for attention

The long tail: manage attention? Systemwide efficiences Aggregation of supply Unified discovery Low transaction costs Aggregation of demand Mobilize users Brand Impact?

Aggregation of supply

Unified discovery

Low transaction costs

Aggregation of demand

Mobilize users

Brand

A library experience which matches the experience of the web?

In some ways the most interesting

Some remarks Some of these are toy-like now, but indicate a direction Increased capacity to ‘sense’ structure (microformats) will improve ability.
