Marshall Breeding discovers the technological future of libraries

The Future of Library Resource DiscoveryHello,

Today I want to point out the Marshall Breeding’s white paper The Future of Library Resource Discovery, published by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) at February 2015.

Marshall Breeding is today one of the most important library consultant, and all that he writes is always interesting. He is the creator and editor of Library Technology Guides, author of the Systems Librarian column that appears monthly in Computers in Libraries, and responsible of the essential annual publication Library Systems Report.

In this new report, Breeding analyzes the tools and technologies that facilitate the discovery of and access to the resources for the communities that they serve. To do it, the author opens the report with an overview of the current discovery environment, followed by the “descriptions of how these technologies, methodologies, and products may be able to adapt to potential future change”. Breeding devotes last sections to take a look to the future, especially on those issues related to linked data.

The paper wants to be a second step after the Open Discovery Initiative: Promoting Transparency in Discovery and includes short term recommendations as well as longer-term that investigate “how evolving technologies such as open linked data can be operationalized”.

Enjoy it!
