APTrust: What, Why, When, and How?

Preservation of digital content for research and scholarship is a huge concern for academic libraries. The Academic Preservation Trust (APTrust) consortium is tackling the problem through the creation and management of a preservation repository that will aggregate content from many institutions, and serve as a replicating node for the Digital Preservation Network (DPN). A panel of consortium members will highlight the benefits of the APTrust, and discuss near-term and longer-term goals. The panel seeks to engage the audience in discussion about challenges that should be addressed as the project develops.

Position Description Bank Demonstration

ARL and the University of Florida launched the Position Description Bank in February in response to an identified need for research libraries to easily share job descriptions with one another. This searchable database provides access to a collection of position descriptions and supports long-term archiving. A short demonstration of the database will highlight the goals of this project and its value to the ongoing evolution of staffing in libraries.

Speakers:
Tiffany Allen, Director of Library Human Resources, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Judy Ruttenberg, Program Director, Transforming Research Libraries, ARL

 

Parents, Alumni, and Libraries: What Customers Really Believe about the Library

This study surveyed parents and alumni—not library users—to understand their beliefs about the campus experience, and how these beliefs influence their perceptions of the university and the role of the library. The study explored survey respondents’ perceptions and memories of the academic experience and discovered what they value for themselves or for their children. Then the study looked at how the library “stacks up” against other elements of campus life, and what this means for libraries and universities as they move to mixed models of physical and virtual learning spaces.

Speaker:
Lorraine Haricombe, Dean of Libraries, University of Kansas

Irene M. Hoffman, Executive Director, Partner Programs, OCLC

 

The Global Dimensions of Scholarship and Research Libraries

In December 2012 an invitational forum was held at Duke University, with support from the Mellon Foundation. The goal was to bring an international focus to conversations regarding the future of research libraries and to consider how the mission to collect, preserve, and provide access for scholars to a wide array of materials created and published around the world can be achieved in the current environment. This presentation is a first step to fulfill the goals of disseminating the recommendations that emerged from the forum and seeking feedback from a variety of organizations, individuals, and groups.

Speaker:
Deborah Jakubs, Rita DiGiallonardo Holloway University Librarian and Vice Provost for Library Affairs, Duke University

Doing Less with Less

ARL libraries are engaging in purposeful, focused change to reshape operations and services. They are doing less with less process. What are libraries giving up in order to do new things? How are decisions being made to make these transitions? Disruptive innovation and risk taking has many forms. Hugh O’Neill will provide a context for this from the business perspective. Within the framing of this context, examples of changes in two ARL libraries will be highlighted along with the results of the changes, and the impact they are having on the organization. Hugh will then facilitate a discussion about the case studies.

Convener:
Mark Haslett, University Librarian, University of Waterloo

Speakers:
Anne Kenney, Carl A. Kroch University Librarian, Cornell University

Hugh O'Neill, Edward M. O'Herron Jr. Distinguished Scholar and Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
