"I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's
couplets Whatever you can do, or dream you
can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and
magic in it. Begin it now." W. H. Murray, The
Scottish Himalaya Expedition, 1951
The greatest genius will never be worth much if
he pretends to draw exclusively from his own
resources.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Goal New Global Service Framework
  • Users can get what they find
  • No matter where they find it
  • Users choice of time, cost, format
  • NOT the librarys

5
Libraries Today
  • Part of changing information ecology
  • Change is discontinuous
  • Change is constant
  • New species emerging
  • New relationships among species
  • Adaptation required!

What do we as librarians do?Bring reader to
author

To start the circle again

Digitally amplified and multiplied

New rule Users in charge
10
New rules
  • Users are in charge
  • We need to ask
  • What can we do now?
  • To be of service
  • In helping find and use information
  • Transform and create information
  • Amplify and multiply contacts

11
Some thoughts
  • Collections largely irrelevant to users
  • Can you get it for me when I need it?
  • Can you help me with my problem?
  • Same as it ever was
  • Library staff are key resources
  • Not collections
  • Every time we help make a connection
  • We grow the Library Brand

12
Strategies for today
  • Focus first on users
  • Put services where users are
  • Offer services from outside libraries
  • Look outside libraries for useful models
  • Use fees when necessary
  • Measure and modify
  • Remain vendor neutral
  • Partners not adversaries

13
By Sharing Users -- Libraries
  • Can offer more than any single library
  • More than any commercial service
  • Collections and expertise together
  • No library too small to share
  • No library too large to gain

14
Tactics to go with strategy
  • Policy framework
  • Taking services to users

15
Manifesto for RethinkingTowards new polices
  • Lower restrictions as far as possible
  • Give users options
  • Encourage global access to resources
  • Include archives, museums, etc.
  • Reference services are vital
  • Offer service at a fair price
  • Make registration easy

16
Not Utopian Ideals
  • Synthesizes new approaches
  • Every policy in practice somewhere
  • Digitization on demand
  • Expanded circulation policies
  • Fees for services

17
Adoption
  • Rethinking Resource Sharing
  • Steering Committee
  • ALA RUSA STARS
  • Rethinking Resource Sharing Policies Committee
  • Executive Committee
  • IFLA Document Delivery and Resource Sharing
    Standing Committee
  • Translated into French and Portuguese

18
GoGetter
  • Demonstrate taking service to users
  • Firefox Plug-in Open Source Model
  • Takes the user
  • From an item on the web
  • To multiple delivery options
