CBS Bibliotek bloggen lukker

February 15th, 2012 af Søren Madsen

CBS bibliotek har i den senest tid gennemgået organisationsforandringer og fået ny strategi. Som en konsekvens af dette skal fokus nu rettes mod vores kerneopgaver og i mindre grad på innovation.

Derfor lukker CBS Biblioteks blog pr. dags dato. Bloggen bliver her på adressen året ud med intakte meddelelser og indhold. Men den vil ikke blive opdateret.

Først indlæg kom d. 12. april 2007. Siden har bloggen fungerer som et medie til vidensdeling internt på CBS Bibliotek og forhåbentligt også for andre interesserede.

Jeg slipper dog ikke blogmediet helt. Jeg forsætter med en privat blog, der tager de samme temaer op. Den kan du finde her:

Hvad sker der med e-bøgerne

January 17th, 2012 af Søren Madsen

Why e-books will be much bigger than you can imagine (GigaOM)
The e-book business will grow faster than people think. Innovations from Amazon and Apple have increased the velocity at which we consume e-books, but there are two emergent behaviors that will increase the rate of overall consumption.

Om et muligt nyt e-bogsprodukt fra Apple

Apple to Introduce “GarageBand for E-Books” [RUMOR] (Mashable)
Apple is scheduled to host an education-related event on January 19 – shrouded with a veil of mystery, as always. A new report from Ars Technica says the company is about to unveil a set of tools to create interactive e-books.

Will Apple make iMovie for interactive books? (GigaOM)
Since before Apple announced its education-oriented press event taking place this week, there’s been some speculation — including here — that a logical step would be to start selling digital textbooks directly through its iBookstore. It would make sense because Apple needs a way to juice iBook sales, it has a fantastic e-textbook reader in the iPad and because, well, what else would you announce at a small “education” event in New York City, the center of publishing?

Tablets Will Transform the Classroom [OPINION] (Mashable)
Alongside these changes, forward-thinking educators are taking risks by distributing tablets in schools, in the hopes that the glimpses of efficiency we have seen to-date can continue to evolve for the long-term, changing classroom education for the better.

Benjamin Graydon, Blake Urbach-Buholz, and Cheryl Kohen: A Study of Four Textbook Distribution Models
EDUCAUSE Quarterly Magazine, 2011, vol. 34, iss. 4

Key Takeaways:

  • In preparation for campus-wide e-text adoption, Daytona State College completed a two-year comparative study of four textbook distribution models: print purchase, print rental, e-text rental, and e-text rental with e-reader device.
  • Though faculty and administrators may embrace e-texts, students often prefer to rent printed textbooks.
  • Institutions seeking to implement campus-wide e-text adoption should be prepared to address specific concerns, including faculty choice, infrastructure needs, student technological skills, cost savings, and instructional adaptation.

Overfladen 2.0 – ny Surface på vej

January 17th, 2012 af Søren Madsen

Microsoft og Samsung er på vej med næste generation af deres Surface. Den er døbt Samsung SUR40. det er igen ReadWriteWeb, der har en introduktion og præsentation – The Surface 2.0 From Microsoft And Samsung Ships At Last. Der er mere information hos Samsung.

Samsung SUR40: A New Way to Interact
Samsung has teamed up with Microsoft® to aid businesses like yours in delivering the latest in touch-screen display technology to customers. Meet the Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft. It presents your brand and business in a way that completely changes the way we talk to customers.

Jeg kan se mange muligheder for en Surface på et bibliotek. Problemet er nok den forventede pris på $8400 og at der kræves ret så meget øvelse i at bruge den.

ReadWriteWeb om sociale medier og overload

January 17th, 2012 af Søren Madsen

ReadWriteWeb er en af de helt store tech blogs. Der er altid spændende læsning. De samler gode artikler fra mange kilder. Her er et par af de seneste.

One More Smartphone Woe: Social Networking Stress [STUDY]
Go ahead and check those work emails on your smartphone: a new study says it’s time spent checking Facebook and other “personal” social networks that is stressing you out.

87% Of Connected Consumers Prefer Websites & Mobile Sites Over Apps
Welcome to the connected consumer. This person most likely has a tablet and smartphone, and is constantly connected to their friends via Facebook. Today, more than 60% of 25-34 year-olds (Gen-Y) own a smartphone. One in three online consumers will buy a tablet by 2014. That’s a lot to digest at once, right? A new survey from Zmags investigates the connected consumer and their digital habits.

Study: Why Do People Use Facebook?
Facebook is an accepted means of communication. It is a never-ending virtual social gathering filled with adopted puppies, cute LOL kitties, baby announcements, viral articles and videos, events, groups, organizations and fan pages. But why do people really use it?
A new study entitled “Why do people use Facebook?” from Boston University’s Ashwini Nadkarni and Stefan G. Hofmann proposes that the social network meets two primary human needs: (1) the need to belong and (2) the need for self-presentation. The study also acknowledges demographic and cultural factors as they relate to the belonging need, and the variation of personality types on Facebook usage.

Den konstante innovation

January 11th, 2012 af Søren Madsen

Bibliotekerne skal udvikle sig. De skal konstant genopfinde sig selv og udvikle nye services og tjenester som passer med tidsånden. Denne artikel fra Library Journal er en god kommentar på innovationen i bibliotekerne.

The Constant Innovator: The Academic Library as a Model of Change Management | Backtalk
It sometimes feels as though libraries are always behind. In the academic sphere this is amplified by the perception of cutting-edge research and activity that goes on elsewhere in a university. Yet it is often the case that libraries are already testing ideas and new technologies and services. Indeed, one might argue that the recent history of the library is one of adaptation and new technology innovation.

What Do We Do Now?: A Case for Abandoning Yesterday and Making the Future.
Reference & User Services Quarterly, Fall2011, vol. 51, iss. 1, s. 12-14
CBS Link (via fjernadgang)

Making the Future
…Driving toward a new future has required constant vigilance and a willingness to re-consider what seemed to have only just been decided. By continually focusing toward a completely new future, from designing new spaces, to re-considering the many products and services we deliver, we are able to position ourselves to make a future we can believe will be integral to our institution’s community.

Fra offline til online

January 10th, 2012 af Søren Madsen

På CBS’site med nyheder om forskning og forskere, Insights@CBS, kan man læse mere om hvordan distributionskanalerne har ændret sig. Musik og film købes ikke længere på DVD eller CD. De streames eller købes online. Jan Damsgaard fra Institut for IT-ledelse på CBS fortæller om at

Offline forretningsmodeller er fortid
Cd’en er på vej i graven, og Blockbuster ligger i ruiner. I det hele taget vender Android Market og Apples´ App Store op og ned på måden at gøre forretninger på. Det er en revolution med flere fædre, og en af dem hedder ’internetdistribution af digitale tjenester’. Onlinedistribution har kun begrænsede masseproduktionsomkostninger, og de kortslutter og omgår de sædvanlige – og fordyrende – distributionskanaler.

Bibliotekerne har jo længe været i front med at levere digitale services. Så som sådan ikke noget nyt for os. Men vi står overfor nogle interessante problemstillinger når ‘alt’ er digital.

Ny rapport: Redefining the Academic Library

January 6th, 2012 af Søren Madsen

Det amerikanske University Leadership Council har netop udsendt rapporten Redefining the Academic Library: Managing the Migration to Digital Information Services.

Hele rapporten: Redefining the Academic Library: Managing the Migration to Digital Information Services (95 s./pdf)


  • Advisors to Our Work

I rapporten henviser de bl.a. til Taiga fourudsigelserne (Within five years…). her konstaterer de at By 2015…

- Patrons Go Elsewhere for Information – “Our users will meet more than 90% of their information needs from sources that are not directly connected to the library.”

- No Need for Traditional Librarians – “Successful libraries will be those that have managed to turn over the majority of their staff or reassigned staff to different roles within the library.”

- A Space for More Than Just Books – “Most library space will be taken over by functions that  have nothing to do with library collections or services.”

Tag til Texas – ER&L 2012

January 3rd, 2012 af Søren Madsen

Hvis du leder efter et påskud til at besøge Austin i Texas, så kommer den her. I april afholdes der den årlige Electronic Resources and Libraries konference.

Hvad tilbyder ER&L: Electronic Resources & Libraries (ER&L) provides a forum for information professionals to explore ideas, trends, and technologies related to electronic resources and digital services.

Indholdet de tidligere år ser spændende ud. På 2011 konferencen side er der links til videoer med præsentationerne. På deres Vimeo channel: ER&L, finder du i alt 37 præsentationer.

DR i lommen

January 1st, 2012 af Søren Madsen

På DRs tekst-tv skriver de om hvordan nyhedslæsningen har ændret sig. Nu er læses mere end 20 procent af onlinenyhederne via deres nyhedsapps på smartphones. Mere end hver fjerde er ligeledes på internettet stort set dagligt via en smartphone.

Der kan læses mere når DR’s “Medieudviklingen 2011″ udkommer i januar.

Et par interessante undersøgelser fra Ericsson:

Consumers ready to mobilize daily activities
A new Ericsson ConsumerLab report shows that consumers who live in urban environments are ready to “mobilize” their everyday activities by integrating their daily routines into the mobile phone. The report found that 90 percent of interviewees never leave home without their mobile phone.

Bibliotekerne og erhvervsfremme

December 30th, 2011 af Søren Madsen

Kort før jul udsendte DEFFs nye programgruppe for innovation og erhvervsfremme en rapport em projekterne om øget erhvervsorientering i fag- og forskningsbibliotekerne.

Stort potentiale for DEFF i erhvervsfremmesystemet
DEFF har netop gennemført to projekter med fokus på ydelser til erhvervsfremmesystemet. Konklusionen er, at der ligger et stort og endnu uudnyttet potentiale for fag- og forskningsbibliotekerne som leverandør af adgang til viden og forskning.

Du kan læse mere om baggrunden for projekterne samt flere konklusioner ved at læse hele rapporten (19 s./pdf).

Strategisk brug af IKT på universiteterne

December 29th, 2011 af Søren Madsen

JISC stiller spørgsmålet Are you leading the way? – Is your institution adapting and responding to the fast changing marketplace as quickly as it might?

Bag spørgsmålet gemmer der sig projektet Strategic ICT Toolkit Project, hvisformål det er at hjælpe institutionerne med den strategiske brug af IKT.

The Strategic ICT Toolkit Project (SICT) is a self-analysis toolkit to help higher education institutions (HEIs) to analyse, assess and develop their strategic use of information technologies.

Developed by The University of Nottingham, this toolkit supports senior management in HE in developing towards more strategically directed ICT deployment. This project drew on the experience, insights and existing practices of a representative sample of HEIs to develop a toolkit to stimulate their understanding and support institutional development. This project was commissioned by The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LFHE).

Digital business 2012

December 29th, 2011 af Søren Madsen

På HBR blog kommer Andrew McAfee med nogle forudsigelser om digital business i 2012. Han er en mand, som man bør lytte til. Han står bl.a. bag begrebet Enterprise 2.0.

Så læs hans Six Predictions for Digital Business in 2012. De seks forudsigelser er:

1. The iPad will gain some worthy adversaries
2. A Fortune 500 company will move its productivity and collaboration apps to the cloud
3. A web-native bank will appear and inspire fanatical devotion among its customers
4. There will be at least one instance of a science fiction technology becoming reality
5. Job prospects and wages will not improve much for the average American worker
6. The material conditions of life will continue to get better for most people, in most countries

Det er specielt 1-4 der er interessante for bibliotekerne. Der vilkomme større konkurrence på det mobile områder, specielt tablets. Her må vi have fingeren på pulsen. Cloud’en betyder mere og mere for bibliotekerne og universiteterne, de flere systemer kommer derud f. eks. studentermail her på CBS.

Nyheder fra den akademiske verden

Sociale medier 2012 – er fremtiden social business?

December 27th, 2011 af Søren Madsen

David Armano forsøger sig på HBR’s Blog med en forudsigelse om sociale medier i 2011: Six Social Media Trends for 2012. Disse er:

  • Convergence Emergence
  • The Cult of Influence
  • Gamification Nation
  • Social Sharing
  • Social Television
  • The Micro Economy

David Armano tager på sin egen blog (Logic+Emotion) tråden op hvor han forsøger på at Demystifying Social Business. Han heviser bl.a. til IBM som værende i front. På deres temaside om Social Busness definerer de det således: People don’t do business with companies. People do business with people. Here is why―and how—to become a Social Business.

  1. Social Brand + Social Enterprise = Social Business
  2. Believe In Life After Likes
  3. Think Beyond Media
  4. Get Social By Design
  5. Learn To Become A Matchmaker

Social business is bigger than Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and (insert social network here) combined. It’s about applying a social layer across the entire organization—connecting a company to all of its stakeholders (customers, employees, business partners, shareholders, etc).

Brugerdreven innovation

December 27th, 2011 af Søren Madsen

Børsen skriver i dagens udgave om arbejdet med brugerdreven innovation hos Rockwool.

Louise Kastberg: Kunderne er nøglen til innovation
Børsen, tirsdag d. 27. decmber2011 / Sektion: 1, side 14-15
Brugerinddragelse er en forudsætning for at sikre Rockwool Internationals konkurrenceevne, mener de to direktører, der står bag isoleringskoncernens arbejde med innovation

Det er måske ikke lige helt nemt at sammenligne bibliotekerne med en industrivirksomhed som Rockwool. Men vi bør også have at stærk fokus på at have kunder/brugere/aftagere med i udviklingen af bibliotekerne.

“Vi er selvfølgelig ude at tale med nogle af de håndværkere, arkitekter og ingeniører, der benytter Rockwools produkter, om deres ønsker og behov. Men det er ikke altid, de selv er klar over, hvad de har brug for. Det finder man først ud af ved at iagttage dem, mens de arbejder,” fortæller koncernens forsknings- og udviklingsdirektør (R&D) Steen Lindby.

Rockwool giver fem gode råd om brugerdreven innovation

  1. Involver kunden i hele udviklingsforløbet – både før, under og efter.
  2. Gå bag om kundens ønsker og adfærd, og prøv at forstå kundens reelle behov.
  3. Observer dine brugere i arbejdssituationen – prøv at udfordre og forstå ”vaner”.
  4. Lav prototyper undervejs, som kunden kan tage stilling til.
  5. Få dine udviklingsfolk ud på byggepladsen, og lad dem indgå i et arbejdssjak.

Fem gode råd, der har lige så stor gyldighed for bibliotekerne.
