Overdrive "Unlike the progress of automation

Reduce collections costs Currently 30 million+ books in digital collection
Estimated 130 million books published worldwide, goal is to have them all digitized by the end of the decade http://edudemic.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/google-digital-library.png Digital Rights Management (DRM)
Restricts use and access of digital material to protect copyright
Privacy concerns
Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA): prohibits creation/use of technology that circumvents measures that control access to copyrighted works
First-Sale doctrine does not apply to digital items
Disproportionate number of public domain items represented in digital collections Copyright https://static.fsf.org/nosvn/dbd/sites/www.defectivebydesign.org/files/images/book-locked-smaller.png Smartphone use up 81% in 2012 Skyrocketing Growth Tablets up 2.5-fold in 2012 Benefits Collection Building and Digital Resources Be aware of DRM

Loss of face-to-face interaction http://www.imls.gov/assets/1/AssetManager/OpportunityForAll.pdf Libraries are information providers! Internet access is another way to connect a community with information.

As more tasks move online, computers are necessary to fill out a job application, complete a tax form or get information about government services. Technology in libraries is not just about providing access, but also about providing training and assistance to patrons. Most common classes offered by libraries

Basic computer and Internet skills: using a mouse, e-mail, word processing, keyboarding, Internet search.

Job related classes: building a resume, online job search/application.
E-books, e-readers and tablets.
Photoshop or other art/design software; using digital cameras.
Family history research (Ancestry.com and related family tree software).
Libraries also create handouts or wikis, or interactive games that allow practice of skills.

For example, the Palm Beach Library has created a game to teach patrons how to use a mouse. http://www.chipublib.org/dir_images/programs/cyber_nav150x120.jpg The Chicago Public Library stations tech experts at different branches:

CyberNavigators offer both small group classes and one-on-one sessions at 45 library locations throughout the city. One-on-one sessions are by appointment only and may last up to one hour. Public libraries work hard to help people find work.

In 2011, over three-quarters of public libraries reported helping job seekers create resumes and find online resources. Almost half reported offering formal classes on job-related topics. http://robinsfox.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/tug_of_war.jpg Demand vs Funding!

As demand for service increases, budget must consider:
Hiring and training of staff
Added computer workstations
Upgrading networks or increasing bandwidth
Longer library hours http://librarystaffdevelopment.wikispaces.com/file/view/beat-computer.jpg/236340608/114x108/beat-computer.jpg Training plan

Reduces stress on library staff and patrons

Partner with experts (technical services?)
Staff can become “experts” on a topic and lead group sessions
Time and funding are desirable Text Success
