1 IGNITING ICT IN PARLIAMENTARY LIBRARIES

2 The changing library Decline of physical holdings Peak Book

3 The end of the library? The lean and hungry accountant and the library Electronic resources are what clients are looking for anyway so why do we need an OPAC (or a library for that matter?) When library software licenses come up for renewal they are closely scrutinised Library staffing is under challenge in many libraries

4 Looking at things the other way around What if someone offered you this great software Lets call it COPA Corporate Open Public Access It is: Stable Has a rich, established, metadata engine Has a sophisticated search engine Is Web 2.0 enabled Is available in open source with worldwide support Can potentially index nearly any resource Can support web services, Z39.50 gateways and mobile devices

5 Reigniting ICT in the Parliamentary Library Opportunities to leapfrog technology Key tools: The library management system The digital library system & records management Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 tools and integration Social Media Think beyond the Library as an index of physical resources

6 The role of the handbook

7 Pedigree of the Handbook Where you can find it: Is designed to be understood in the context of: Guidelines for Legislative Libraries (IFLA publication 140) Principal author Edmund Balnaves with an impressive international working group comprising Soledad Ferreiro (Chile), Moira Fraser (New Zealand), Adolfo Furtado (Brazil), Roxanne Missingham (Australia), Albert Nuntja (South Africa), Sari Pajula (Finland), John Pullinger (United Kingdom), Innocent Rugambwa (Uganda), Donna Scheeder (United States of America), Raissa Teodori (Italy), William Young (Canada), with case studies and contributions from the United Nations, the Inter-Parliamentary Union, Italy, Chile, Norway, the UK, Australia and others.

10 What it ISN T It is not a cookbook. Each library is different. It is not prescriptive. It offers some great technology and choices for deployment It is not Impractical : It is about technology for NOW not TOMORROW.

11 What it IS An explanation of ICT concepts. A great explanation of concepts and processes important for ICT in parliamentary libraries A set of guidelines. A checklist for reviewing your ICT operation A practical handbook aimed at the achievable across abroad spectrum of libraries and budgets A set of case studies and standards that demonstrate of the pervasive impact of ICT on libraries

12 Consider the changing dynamics LIS professionals The internet engaged librarian Every librarian as a system librarian LMS vendors The LMS can no longer be the software cash cow more for less rather than less for more. The wonderful tools MARCedit Free and open source tools Visual Studio (DotNet programming) and PHP Lots and lots of code examples

13 Extending the OPAC (1) Loading freely available e-journal and e-book lists into the catalogue to facilitate searching. (2) Loading subscription e-lists from the publisher (3) Consolidating metadata from internal document management systems, digital libraries to facilitate document discovery

14 Terrific tools for the technically talented SQL query tools MarcEdit Even if your LMS doesn t have Z39.50 this tool does and can download entries as MARC for import into your catalogue. It can even transform spreadsheet content to MARC form import. Z39.50 A gateway to resources internationally. Web 2.0 resources & Mash-ups &PHP Learn PHP Write your own mash-ups drawing on RSS feeds and wonderful web services

15 Situating the OPAC in the Open movement The library in transition Library Management Systems Content Management Systems Digital Libraries/Document Libraries Database services The role of open source Stable, open source solutions exist for the above Can facilitate integrative solutions

16

17 (Live) Examples Parliamentary Library of Solomon Islands DSpace & Koha integrated NSW Parliamentary Library DSpace and Koha integrated Automatic systems for scanning /web/rss for articles of interest

18 HORSES FOR COURSES

19 Comparative roles Digital Library Library Management Federated Search Single Sign-on Koha Koha Koha can be used to aggregate different sources to provide a single search point across resources. Koha can be both the target and the source for single sign-on DSpace Scalable digital library system that supports a role both for digital library management and records management. DSpace can be the target of single sign on VUFind VUFind, unlike Koha, is designed from ground up as a tool to search aggregation tool.
