The Transformed Library Read & download ð PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free This wide ranging survey takes stock of our institutions' strengths weaknesses opportunities and threats analyzing how libraries and the very concept of librarianship have been comprehensively transformed over the past few decades A respected veteran of libraries who has witnessed first hand the many changes in the library world Woodward provides a balanced realistic assessment of the situation that confronts both libraries and information p. According to the author veteran librarian Jeanette Woodward public academic and school libraries need to find ways of transforming themselves in order to cope successfully with digital books e publishers dwindling budgets the social impact of web and information technologies and changing demographics This is hardly earth shaking news but Woodward manages to package her views into a very readable balanced sensible and at first glance surprisingly inspiring bookChapter one Gutenberg meets Kindle The Arrival of Digital Books provides a very brief very simplistic breezy history of digital books perhaps the most interesting part is when she glances at the difference between how we read physical and electronic books She reminds us that Throughout history loud objections have been raised with the arrival of each new media format William Wordsworth s sister insisted he was damaging his mind reading the newspapers of the day She was reacting to the new format of a large page on which multiple columns of text were placed side by side thus creating a very disorienting experience for the readerThe flicker of computer screens the layout of web pages the constant lure and distraction of links elsewhere may weigh heavily against reading on the web connected computer but the ease of web searching the arrival of ergonomic e books and the sheer convenience of having a wealth of material at one s fingertips weigh heavily on the plus side of the ledger Unsurprisingly the author concludes her first chapter withIf libraries are to flourish in the twenty first century e book circulation will need to become a high priority This leads very naturally to a chapter on e publishers Libraries vs e publishers The library s point of view which can be summed up as librarians are feeling hurt and angry at e book publishers and distributors that appear to be making e book lending as difficult as possibleThe oulook was pretty bleak for libraries in 2013 the UK Publisher Association had announced a policy which forced users to download e books only when they were in library premises while in the USA Penguin had recently opted out of its agreement with library e provider Overdrive HarperCollins had announced its infamous and widely cited library licencing restriction that allowed a book to be lent at most 26 times Random House had tripled its e book prices for library e book distributors and there were a number of legal actions threatening first sale doctrine Woodward also reminds us that other library loan services had been almost wiped out by innovative out of the box thinking by YouTube Netflix and to a lesser extent Hulu Chapter 3 The Age of High Anxiety Threats that fuel library nightmares focuses on the threats associated with library outsourcing and its effects on the job market for librarians and libraries uality of service wit library automation and the concept of so called staffless libraries and with economic recession and a tendency to consider closing down library branches in order to save costs Woodward overviews the development of US largest library outsourcing company Library Systems and Services LLC LSSI and proposes that some cost cutting outsourcing strategies which were effective in the short term and especially at federal level libraries may well prove ineffective in the medium to long term and especially so at the municipal library level Woodward warns thatWhen we speak of dangers to the library like outsourcing and staffless libraries we are certainly dealing with very real issues that could negatively impact the library s future however I can t help but wonder if any such threat from the outside could be as dangerous as the poor decisions we ourselves sometimes make and in this respect urges librarians to pay particular heed to customer serviceWe sometimes imagine that if we cut public services there will be a corresponding public outcry that will somehow result in budget increases Although this strategy has occasionally worked the opposite has often been true Customers are likely to abandon the library because it no longer meets their needsFor me this turned out to be one of the most interesting and thought provoking chaptersThe next chapter The Library is Cyberspace is another well written and thought provoking subject focusing on the need for libraries to make savvy use of social networking There a number of excellent and simple suggestions to get started on this important topicIf books journals articles and newspapers can increasingly be plucked out of he web from one s pet mobile device at the office at home or in transit between the two of what use is the physical library once it no longer stores such items Chapter 5 Will the coffee shop save us The library as place argues in favor of devoting attention to the library as a key public and civic place a place which strengthens community bonds This chapter devotes very little space no pun intended to libraries as learning commons or makerspaces perhaps this is because these topics mainstreamed slightly after the book was publishedIn the following chapter rather wistfully or perhaps hopefully titled Library careers that won t go away Woodward looks at the current 2013 demand for jobs for library and information specialists and as many other authors before her urges librarians to acuire new IT or customer oriented skills to retool rebrand remarket or re orient themselves The last three chapters deal with survival strategies for public academic and school libraries Unfortunately the copy I read was missing the first seven of the seventeen pages on what interested me most Survival Strategies for Academic Libraries Judging from the last ten pages the key survival strategies are Develop high uality and relevant information literacy programmes Redesign library websites so they pull together the information marketing and technological aspects Develop individualized guides that connect library resources to specific research needs Update the library s technology hub Update and provide depth to ongoing library staff trainingAs a final wrap up in her conclusions Woodward urges us to focus on the changing needs and nature of our customers and communities and think hard about our libraries upcoming prioritiesAll in all a nice short book to start worrying about how to transform your
