  1. 1. Future of Libraries: Engines of their Communities Portsmouth Public Library Presentation November 15, 2016 Stephen Abram, MLS Federation of Ontario Public Libraries Lighthouse Consulting Inc.
  2. 2. Alone Together Collaboration
  3. 3. Let’s get something out of the way . . .
  4. 4. Dead Wrong Thinking Public libraries are growing, doing better than ever. The Internet and digital world is an opportunity that libraries excel on riding this mechanical bull!
  5. 5. 21st Century Vital Literacies Critical 21st century skills, all agree on four critical areas for development:  Collaboration and teamwork  Creativity and imagination  Critical thinking  Problem solving  Flexibility and adaptability  Global and cultural awareness  Information literacy  Leadership  Civic literacy and citizenship  Oral and written communication skills  Social responsibility and ethics  Technology literacy  Initiative Literacy: Reading literacy Print literacy Computer literacy Web literacy Device literacy Tool literacy Information literacy Cognitive literacy Credulity
  6. 6. “Information literacy is a crucial skill in the pursuit of knowledge. It involves recognizing when information is needed and being able to efficiently locate, accurately evaluate, effectively use, and clearly communicate information in various formats.” Wesleyan University
  7. 7. Proven Public Library Impact The Public Library value proposition is strong and includes (but isn’t limited to):  Excellent Return on Investment  Strong Economic Development  Great Employment Support  Welcoming New Americans  Provable Early Literacy Development  Ongoing Support for Formal Education and Homework Help  Serve the whole community equitably  Affordable access to community resources  Access to Government Services and e-government  Questions Deserve Quality Answers  Support Cultural Vitality  Recognized and Valued Leisure Activities for the majority
  8. 8. Current Proofs on Having an Impact (just a selection)  Fiction and Empathy  School Readiness  College Readiness  Social Isolation  Different Abilities  Economic Impact  Entrepreneurs  Lifelong learning, adult education, e-learning  Access of all kinds – leveling the playing field
  9. 9. “How will we describe the nature of libraries in the future? Should they be:  Baby friendly  Pet friendly  Food friendly  Beer, wine, and alcohol friendly  Event friendly  Party friendly (should they provide a list of approved catering companies)  Homeless friendly  Privacy advocate friendly  Business friendly  Casual user friendly
  10. 10. Should they have facilities for:  Traveling museum exhibits  Private meetings  Aerobic reading  Taking a shower  Preparing and serving food  Taking a nap  Storing personal items  Sending money or making payments
  11. 11. Traditional Information Archive – Over the years libraries have expanded their collections. Certainly not all are large enough to manage every item on this list, but most have a majority of them.  Print books  Digital books  Audio books  Newspapers  Magazines  Music  Movies  TV shows  Radio broadcasts  Presentations  Courseware  Audio materials (discs, tapes, talking books and other recorded formats)  Maps  Microforms  Videos (film, television broadcasts, DVDs)  Sheet music  Photographs, posters, prints, and drawings  Apps and mobile apps  Social media archives  Artwork
  12. 12. Non-Traditional Archives Libraries also have an obligation to archive their local communities. Some of the non- traditional archives may include:  1. History of every business in region.  2. Overview of every graduating class in every school.  3. History of local infrastructure including bridges, tunnels, waterlines, sewer lines, fire stations, water towers, police stations, schools, etc.  4. Aging of the community done through sequential photo queues.  5. The sound of the city in the form of audio recordings over the years.  6. Cultural influence timelines.  7. Local archive for emergency equipment such as emergency generators when the power does down, or emergency lighting, emergency cots, etc.  8. Record of every law, ordinance, and regulation affecting every member of the community
  13. 13. Search Command Centers Most people entering a library are searching for something. Over the coming years search technology will become increasing complicated, but at the same time we will have far more capabilities to use in our search. Video Search – When it comes to video search, we still struggle with attributes like context, style, circumstances, and a variety of situational details. Examples of future video searches may include:  9. Bring up every public video of Jane Doe (average person) between 1980 and 2005 when she was in Manchester, England.  10. What are the top 20 most watched videos of an audience laughing at someone who is in the process of dying from a fatal accident?  11. Show me the top 10 Twitch tournament videos of Korean players playing Destiny version 4.3.  12. What are the 12 common features of low grossing movies produced by Paramount Pictures in 1978? Drone Search – It may seem unlikely today that libraries will have their own fleets of drones to deploy for physical search inquiries, but that will change over the coming decades.  13. Using thermo scans, what houses in my city have the least amount of insulation in the attic?  14. Where is the hole in the fence that is allowing livestock to enter the Eagle Ridge Neighborhood and cause damage?  15. Which areas in my city are least likely to get flooded when the river overflows its banks?  16. Give me a 360-degree views of the three major sculptures erected in my city last year? Demographic Search – The demographics of the world is changing and we need better tools for monitoring it.  17. Show me a heatmap of the world, broken down by 1 square mile regions, showing highest to lowest birthrates  18. What regions of the world are most like Winnipeg, Canada (pick any city) based on climate, age demographics, political views, education levels, scientific interests, personal health, etc.  19. Who is the most knowledgeable person in the world on acidic soil types?  20. Show me a decade-by-decade breakdown of increasing average incomes in Africa since 1900.
  14. 14. Complex Searches Over time search engines will deploy a combination of techniques for finding the answer to complex questions.  21. Interactive map of the world highlighting regions currently at 10 degrees Celsius?  22. What world leaders are currently in NYC?  23. Interactive map of butterfly migrations in Panama?  24. What movie has Harrison Ford wearing a blue sweater while chewing gum?  25. Why is this object (hold up an object) important?  26. How famous am I compared to other people in my community?  27. Timeline Search – How have recipes for bread changed over the past 300 years?  28. Who else in the world has a disease like mine?
  15. 15. Future searches As we enter the age of quantum computing, far more search attributes will become quantifiable. Someday soon we will be able to search for:  29. Smells  30. Tastes  31. Harmonic vibrations  32. Reflectivity  33. Specific gravity  34. Chemical composition  35. Textures  36. Viscosity

Show how warm water currents have changed over the past two decades.
  18. 18. Maker Spaces Libraries are rapidly transitioning from a place for passive visitors who consume information to active participants who would much rather produce it. Areas to include:  49. Potters wheel and workshop for mixing the mud and making pottery.  50. Growing vegetables using aquaponics.  51. Video studio for both shooting and editing a video.  52.
