ACRL Environmental Scan 2007

美國學術與研究圖書館學會(The Association of College and Research Libraries, ACRL) 最近發表了一份 2007年環境掃描報告 (pdf),這是他們繼 Environmental Scan in 2003 (pdf) 之後最新的環境掃描報告,相信大學圖書館人員會很有興趣才是。

這份報告中針對未來大學圖書館(員) 提出了 10個設想 (Top Ten Assumptions for the Future of Academic Libraries and Librarians) ,依排名分別是:

  1. There will be an increased emphasis on digitizing collections, preserving digital archives, and improving methods of data storage, retrieval, curation, and service.
  2. The skill set for librarians will continue to evolve in response to the changing needs and expectations of the populations they serve, and the professional background of library staff will become increasingly diverse in support of expanded service programs and administrative needs.
  3. Students and faculty will continue to demand increasing access to library resources and services, and to expect to find a rich digital library presence both in enterprise academic systems and as a feature of social computing.
  4. Debates about intellectual property will become increasingly common in higher education, and resources and educational programming related to intellectual property management will become an important part of library service to the academic community.
  5. The evolution of information technology will shape both the practice of scholarly inquiry and the daily routine of students and faculty, and demands for technology-related services and technology-rich user environments will continue to grow and will require additional funding.
  6. Higher education will be increasingly viewed as a business, and calls for accountability and for quantitative measures of library contributions to the research, teaching, and service missions of the institution will shape library assessment programs and approaches to the allocation of institutional resources.
  7. As part of the “business of higher education,” students will increasingly view themselves as “customers” of the academic library and will demand high-quality facilities, resources, and services attuned to their needs and concerns.
  8. Online learning will continue to expand as an option for students and faculty – both on campus and off – and libraries will gear resources and services for delivery to a distributed academic community.
  9. Demands for free, public access to data collected, and research completed, as part of publicly funded research programs will continue to grow.
  10. The protection of privacy and support for intellectual freedom will continue to be defining issues for academic libraries and librarians.
