The Visible Library: Learn how the Web sees libraries today and how you can use its power to deeply connect with your community


Libraries have always been about more than their front doors. They are about what waits on the other side – resources, services, knowledge to serve both individuals and communities at large and connections. The Web reflects and amplifies these principles dramatically; however, all connections benefit from shared vocabulary and clear, audience-oriented communication. The use of enabling technologies like Linked Data and shared vocabularies like BIBFRAME and schema.org, maximizes the likelihood libraries can continue to describe their resources and the Web can discover and represent libraries more fully. The panelists in this Webcast bring together informed, practical, and evolving perspectives on community engagement, iterative exploration, and Web technologies. Archive is now available!

The project expands acquisition of e-books in tandem with reductions in print, so as to move both the consortium and the university presses to a decidedly electronic environment for books that will enhance support for instruction and research across the disciplinary spectrum within an environment that is acceptable to users.

Libraries share many common challenges: scarce resources, increased user demand and ever more complex collections, systems and workflows. To help manage these challenges, today’s cloud-based library management services are offering workflows that save time and discovery solutions that meet users’ expectations. Libraries using these services are seeing drastic reductions in the time it takes for routine tasks because of the integration in the cloud between libraries, applications, partners and data. Not only can information be shared between departments, but between libraries, improving quality and relevance as it’s enhanced along the way. Archive Now Available!
