Library as Future Joe Murphy @libraryfuture Australia 2014

Art by Tara Radniecki @libraryfuture

The outside world is burning the ways that we have done things @libraryfuture


She who has more curiosity has more strength @libraryfuture

Joe Murphy Director, Library Futures • Hopes – Expand library creativity – Multiply instances of library innovation – Empower future leaning library projects

The future of libraries is a question The question is do libraries have a future? @libraryfuture

The future of libraries is a question Posing a question invites investment into its answer The ask has power as a story

One more thing … Diffusion

Library as Future @libraryfuture

The Future as Platform @libraryfuture

What gets us to the future? An idea and an ounce of heart

there is no map to the future

The future library identifies & supports local moonshots the long goals that create side benefits for the community future @libraryfuture

The library sprouts life

Internet of Everything • When more than our devices are data points – The Internet of Things is about to explode in libraries A Nest for Google

New roles serve as bubbles of creativity New roles - Chief Creative Officer - Director of Makerspaces

Four directions for libraries for 2014 Libraries as change entities @libraryfuture

“Really more of a lab than a library”

Boil it down and we are left with change Libraries = pivot engines

Partnerships as growth

Partnerships – coders and more

New platforms for libraries Cars – TVs – Wearables

More through formerly passive platforms

Wearable technology • From palm to body • Not a tangential fad – will want it to fold into library services, work-flows, content provision

Battle for the Living Room

Libraries as gap filler

Now Accepting Bitcoin

Bitcoin ATM

Mobile now Mobile usage grew 115% in 2013 – Messaging rose 203%, content increased only 31% for magazines & news & 78% for other media. – Messaging even beat out gaming. – Productivity was #2. (According to Flurry ) Apps

Mobile Messaging • • • • Snapchat Jelly Instagram Direct WhatsApp

Snapchat – More than Sexting Impermanence Primacy of privacy Photo as conversation

Jelly Big tech playing in library areas Klout’s Cinch? Google’s Helpouts?

Google Helpouts Social & expertise - ahem … libraries

The Most Disruptive Content Technology … is from old media

Content Today – Print Starts to Settle Into Its Niches - "Print is not dead, it simply has some very specific attributes” – NYT – Library publishing services are on the rise – to serve local/campus publishing needs Association of American Univ Presses Study

Netflix(S) for Books - 24Symbols – Oyster – Scribd – - Streaming – Subscription – Freemium -

Drones + ecommerce + content

2nd Screen folding back


SX SW Libraries at SXSW Positioning Libraries as part of the technology conversation Austin, TX March, 2014

You front line librarians. You are the ones in trouble. … - your new job description, “sees & accepts change, redirects the library work to be the change we need to see” You new/young/newly curious librarians, keep pointing us in new directions


Hyperlinking reality QR Codes and Clickable Paper NFC

A virtual reality wearable Oculus Rift Virtual reality headset Hardware catches up to 2008 dreams Key points – • Wearable • SDK

The 1st question should not be how do we apply? It should be, “what are the impacts on the info environment?” And “what opportunities does it provide?”

The wrong questions: Do libraries have a future? What is the future of libraries?

There is nothing to fear but death and obsolescence

There is nothing to fear but trying & missing

There is nothing to fear but unoptimistic visions of our future

Not all who wonder are lost @libraryfuture

I want to hear, “I wonder if …” Look at disruptions & ask “what will this mean for library growth opportunities?” @libraryfuture


Facilitating Creation Also - 3D Printing fossils at the University of Oregon science library



Privacy debate • Privacy becomes a different type of conversation, when the primacy of patron privacy is balanced with (challenged by?) a preference for / prioritization of customization over strict privacy controls. – Privacy having been “irreparably harmed” will this mean A) a closer guarding of trust AND B) a more realistic placement of levels of trust on institutions like libraries

Library of the future = = HEART + GUTS + VISION

The joy & inspiration libraries bring simply by having a familiar title @libraryfuture

Do not speak of library futures until you know the love of miles Davis
