Meeting New User Expectations

Users’ perspective on information retrieval is largely shaped by web 
experiences. Accordingly libraries are feeling pressure to adapt their services 
in line with new user expectations. Bibliographic databases are no exception to 
this and users expect them to come up with the most relevant information on the 
first page of a search result. Thus the challenge for use is “How can we make 
relevance ranking work in bibliographic databases?” 

Search engines and web experiences have led users expect to get to a resource 
instantaneously. How do we fulfil this need when large parts of our services 
are still based around paper material? In a new style library catalogue, users 
do not expect to find just journal titles, but also expect articles within 
these journals to be found. What strategies do libraries use to fulfil this 
wish? As well, Library catalogue records are now harvested by Google and other 
search engines. Are we able to expose our meta-data to these engines for useful 
re use and cross referencing? Are we able to expose the richness of our 
bibliographic databases to the web using semantic web technologies like linked 
data? Are we ready for the E-book readers? What do libraries do to archive our 
E-memory? Are our new discovery interfaces understood by our users? Do we know 
our users?
