SPARC EUROPE 2017 Annual report

This annual report provides an overview of how SPARC Europe, on behalf of you, our members,  is using its growing strength, expertise, influence and relationships to help make Open the  default in Europe



The IFLA Trend Report, initially published in 2013, started a conversation. By giving everyone in the library and information sector a range of expert opinions on broad social, economic and technological trends, it posed a question: how do such developments effect their lives, works and institutions? The 2016 Update of the report showed just some of the rich discussions that took place, as IFLA members explored the answers.
Now, in 2017, we are very happy to share an updated report, bringing in three further expert perspectives. Based on interventions at the 2017 IFLA President’s meeting, they pose three more questions:
How might libraries incorporate revolutionary 3D printing techniques into their offer?
How should libraries respond to the urgent need to provide education for all?
How can libraries compete with the huge volumes of misinformation that the Internet makes it possible to create and share?

Mapping the Future of Academic Libraries

Academic libraries currently operate within and contribute to a rapidly changing environment. Being aware of what is changing and ensuring that libraries can continue to play a useful role in higher education (HE) is a profound ongoing challenge. This report aims to help in addressing that challenge. It considers library futures over the next decade, a formidable but important undertaking.
We have based our analysis on a mixed-methods research project involving a review of the literature, in-depth interviews with a range of stakeholders both within and beyond the library community, and a survey of library staff. We report our findings as well as providing reflection on their implications for libraries and their future

A landscape study on open access and monographs

KE landskabsstudie om Open Access-bøger

Rapporten er forfattet af Eelco Ferwerda, Frances Pinter and Niels Stern og bygger bl.a. på 73 dybtgående samtaler, som er blevet afholdt i otte forskellige lande (Danmark, Finland, Tyskland, Holland, England, Frankrig fra KE samt Norge og Østrig) med henblik på at forstå de nuværende udviklinger for Open Access-bøger blandt tre grupper af interessenter: Forlæggere, finansieringskilder og biblioteker. Vigtigheden af forfatternes indstilling til OA, akademiske belønninger og incitamenter bliver også rejst af flere af de interviewede.

·         The state of Digital Humanities in European research libraries will be assessed and published;
·         Webinars on key Research Data Management topics will provide guidance;
·         Leadership training will be offered for current and aspiring library directors.
These are just some of our goals for the coming five years. The attached Strategy document gives more information on the how the Strategy was developed and its focus areas.
