In a Few Years Time: Digital Library Strategy – slides and mindmaps

Posted by gazjjohnson on 10 March, 2009

Some weeks ago a lot of us attended a Digital Library Strategy workshop here in the library, led by Ken Chad.  I’ve written about the day, but I’ve just been passed Ken’s slides and the mindmaps from the session.

The mindmap was generated by small groups talking about the challenges, opportunities and issues around each of the 4 areas of discussion. They reflected back on the presentations from Ken and Richard, but also on the experience and insight of the various group members taking part.  They’re in no way a comprehensive point of view, and as you can see no ranking order is applied to them.  Each one is a comment, idea or concept in its own right.

But these will help the Library in shaping its future Web 2 and digital strategy developments for the next 3 or so years.  More about that in the near future…

    There are lots of very good general ideas there but now we want to see something specific. I suppose if we apply Ken’s idea that people need to be innovating now rather than over planning, then its what people are doing now that counts. There is our new library subject page pilots project for starters. Can anyone think of anything else?

  2. Indeed – I think our Sci@Leic page is a good start. Selina just asked if Joanne’s going to let people know about these slides etc now being available, so if you catch her ear can you ask her?

    Selina and I also think we should also mention both Sci@Leic and the Digital Strategy stuff at Monday’s meeting. (sorry this sounds like I’ve turned into S’s offical spokesman!)

  3. Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites?
    I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would really like to have
    you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would value your
    work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.
