Digital Library Service Innovations in an Age of Skepticism

Digital Library Services have evolved over the last decade to interact more with networked and web environments, as well as to center user experience and context for collections. At the same time, in the United States particularly, as well as much of the world, trust of traditional institutions of information has been challenged. We have entered a new age of skepticism.

This presentation will review innovative and emerging practices in digital libraries in the context of this skepticism. Implications on the relationship with notions of linked data, bias in description, block-chain, and universal design will be discussed. The role of community, membership organizations, and partnerships may both support and challenge our structural information systems, in terms of collections, metadata, systems, and standards for interoperability. In this, digital library services have the power to address the gap in trust and to foster dialogue.

Karen Estlund is the associate dean for Technology and Digital Strategies for Penn State Libraries where she provides leadership and advocacy for information technology, digital initiatives, cataloging and metadata services, publishing and curation services. Continued.
