Track A - UNDERSTANDING USERS, INFLUENCING USE

10.30 – 11.00
Moderator: , Guldborgsund Public Library

Yes – we’ve been listening! ILI delegates have shared their professional challenges and concerns and three major themes have emerged. How do we influence policyholders and paymasters on our impact and potential? How do we replicate the public’s trust in us in a digital world? How do we compete with Google? In the digital age, libraries are transforming to maximise our collections, community connections and expertise alongside new technologies to promote entrepreneurship and business development. If you think about citizens and library users in a new way, as mobile, digitally accessible, yet unique and focused on receiving the service that they want whenever they want it, technology gives them and you the opportunity to build a new relationship. Liz McGettigan explores major challenges facing libraries today.

Change mandatory, survival optional

Two library services set out to make films that would encourage greater use of library resources. The library at Roche used an iPad app called Adobe Voice to create a series of videos that have directly increased footfall and awareness of the library. In Norway, academic librarians used films to increase their presence on Facebook.

Learn to get the best out of your vendor. The overarching objective between a vendor and a customer is to have a relationship that is sustainable, painless and mutually beneficial. Debunking some myths is a good way to approach how this might be achieved. This session explores assumptions about vendor tactics and methods and concludes with tips and practical considerations for finding that elusive win-win for both parties.

When we really understand our audiences and are clear about what we want to achieve, then we can create truly customised content that fulfils the needs of our users. In this hour we explore how content themes were developed to present ‘the best of British’ in ways that best suited a South Asian audience; we learn how content integration has allowed cross-departmental collaboration in the Netherlands; and we explore how a traditional broadcasting corporation is working to open their archives in new ways.

Two great projects encouraging people to interact with existing open cultural resources and to create their own digital content. Poetic Places is a free app that uses GPS to help users encounter literature about place in situ, accompanied by contextualising histories and evocative visual materials drawn predominantly from open archive collections. Surrey Libraries ran workshops focused on interactive fiction and other forms of digital storytelling. They have enabled users to write and share their own tales in new and creative ways using technology.
