WHY is it important to access THAT one book / library event, I need in THIS moment of my life HERE?

WHY & HOW of The New Normal: legacy book Minority Report. WHAT cures Learning Inequality?                                        

Human-centric Hybrid Bœk for Hybrid Library: crowd-scanned, local-printed, Piggy-Baggy2home

There are dozens of issues - like ineffective learning, exclusion, digital divide - caused by the legacy library systems, built 1500 years ago in a provider-centric way, for rare books & geo-divided society.

Main issue: non-user-centric SERVICE DESIGN can’t fulfill the core library service use, Public Good: KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCES, that I need, NOW, in Triple-A quality - Accessible, Affordable, FAIR.

HOW to bring the library in accordance with to-date digital era presumption: information/UX (book content/event) is always web-click-away? Are big investments needed? WHO holds the key to the library services development?

Let’s start with e-book’s content, then watch if UX/paper book content ‘web-click-away’ follow suit.

Researches on non-availability of e-content from library & archives (thanks OpenGLAM community), librarians interviews, e.g. Mikko Vainio - show WHY are they (are they?) developments averse, & WHO prevents access

-          Publishers - like any (information) gate-keeper – tend to limit the information access, in order to monetize their gate-keeper privileges. Example: Amazon. Have WE / myself authorized them to keep the key to progress of Education, Learning, Accessibility? OpenAccess can tell this story. 

-          A publisher – like every capitalist – needs to grow their business. Are we / myself interested that publisher business / retail grows? Or are we interested that the library services quality & Long Tail of books grows?

-          HOW should a master behave, when his/her (robotic) servant degrades or doesn’t develop the service quality? The answer is clear, we’d replace the servant or fix the robot’s output.

It would take too long to replace the publishers/gate keepers’ business as the US gov’t tries (shows?)

In my opinion, we should try to agile-innovate it: A/B test the US, SurCap vs the EU way, bottoms-up.

HOW to do it the EU way: by turning it down from head-to-roots - to user-centric, bottoms-up built.

I belong to MyData Global (non-profit) experts’ & activists’ community; my expertise is in printing business / personalised paper documents business models development.

I will combine grassroots approach with the latest achievements of for-profit technologies of DUAL (paper & e-) book printing

-          to make any book accessible, affordable, via FAIR data processing, non-rival data economy

-          in Project Teams: ŒBœks™ (Project 1) and Nordic Library+ Network, F¡NDS™ (Project 2)

-          leveraging Public-Private-People partnership, data cooperative model for our F¡NDS engine.

HOW to start it agile way: 1. Agree on definitions. ‘A book’ & ‘digitalisation4All’ serve good & evil.

We need ‘My book’ & ‘My digitalisation’ patterns, for Public Good & for my individual benefits.

Logically, we need to define 1.1 ‘Common goods’ & 1.2 ‘My benefits’. 1.1 see Wikipedia 1.2 MyData.

If we agreed on ‘Knowledge’ = ‘Common Good’ > can we invent ‘Library ŒBœks’ = ‘Common Goods’?

Logically, from the latest science studies: ‘Common Goods’ need PPPP, data coop, NON-RIVAL data economy;

MyData approach > Self-Sovereign ID, Disposable Yet Official ID, Right2Service authenticity vs ID/PDS

For PDS, Personal Data Storage safe functions, see MyData Operators, IT best practices: Edge AI etc.

WHAT: we’ll start by ŒBœks & F¡NDS trials (events, website UX) at prospect customers, libraries.
