Big Shifts: Libraries, Collections, Networks

Big Shifts: Libraries, Collections, Networks

By Lorcan Dempsey

ALA Midwinter
Philadelphia, PA, USA

Academic libraries increasingly define themselves in terms of student success, research support, and community engagement. We are seeing a major shift from the centrality of the collection, to services and to deeper engagement with changing research, teaching, and learning practices. This presentation frames important changes, identifies patterns in library responses, and discusses how they can use trends to their advantage. It draws on an extensive record of OCLC Research work on the future of libraries, on the shifting boundaries and character of library collections, on research support, on library collaboration, and on the shift to open.

The Effects of the Shift to Open on Research Libraries

The Effects of the Shift to Open on Research Libraries

By Titia van der Werf

IATUL SEMINAR 2019
Gdańsk, Poland

Last year, OCLC surveyed libraries from 82 countries around the world on their open content efforts, investments, and opinions. The majority (72% of 705 respondents) were from research and university libraries. In this session, Titia presents data from the majority group through the lens of Lorcan Dempsey’s collection directions and contextualizes the findings within the broader trend toward more openness. She also shares questions raised by the findings and suggests areas for further exploration.
