Highly abstracted model of computing


Displaces the need for local hardware and
software


Provisioned on demand

Emerging model for library discovery and
automation


Increasingly dubbed “Web

scale”


Lots of non

content to library patrons

Do Library Web sites and catalogs meet the
information needs of our users?


Do they attract their interest
?


Print

Increasing emphasis on subscribed content,
especially articles and databases


Strong emphasis on digitizing local
collections


New generations of library users:


Millennial generation


Web savvy


Pervasive

Web 2.0 concepts



Silos Prevail

Systems designed for e

also problematic


Forcing users to use different interfaces
depending on type of content becoming
less tenable


Libraries working toward consolidated user
environments that give equal footing to
digital and print
resources

Beyond the bounds of the local library’s collection


Targets the universe of objective, vetted library
content


Includes full

text indexing to the fullest
extent possible


Indexing the full corpus of information available
globally


Or at least major portions


Google aims to address all the world’s information


Not quite comprehensive


partial harvesting of any given
resource


Discovery Layer Products for libraries aim to address
all content collected by libraries:


Print


Remotely

access electronic content: e
-
journals, e

books,
databases, licensed and open access.


Local special collections: digital and print.

Increasing opportunities to search the full
contents


Google Library Print, Google Publisher, Open

.


High

quality metadata will improve search
precision


Commercial search providers already offer
“search inside the book
” and searching across
the full

text of large book collections


Not
currently available
through most
library
search
environments


Will be

an important feature of projects such as
HathiTrust


Deep search highly improved by high

Now

viewed as separate problem


Many interdependencies

from many underlying repositories

objects


Will models of resource management change
to consolidate the repositories?


Realign Discovery and management?
