Keine Jahresgebühren mehr in der Stadtbibliothek Nürnberg ab 2013

Die Stadtbibliothek Nürnberg machte nun vor ihrer und nun nach ihrer Eröffnung im neuen Gebäude zum zweiten Mal Schlagzeilen, nachdem es bereits die “Leiht-uns-leer-Aktion” mit dem Flashmob-Aufruf via Bayern1 in den Bayerischen Rundfunk schaffte: “Leiht uns arm …”, bittet die Stadtbibliothek im Bildungscampus Nürnberg, “… damit wir weniger zum Umziehen haben.”

Am 25. Oktober 2012 wurde die neu “Stadtbibliothek Zentrum” eröffnet. Mit dem Neubau wurden die Zentralbibliothek, die Bibliothek Egidienplatz und die Musikbibliothek zusammengefasst. Hier der Link zur neuen Webseite: www.stadtbibliothek.nuernberg.de

Ab Januar 2013 wird die Ausleihe für alle Medien kostenfrei sein und es wird keine Jahresgebühr mehr geben. Das klingt zunächst Mal erstaunlich und revolutionär für eine große Stadtbibliothek in Deutschland, die zudem zu den ältesten kommunalen Bibliotheken Deutschlands zählt . In Zukunft werden sich die Nutzer und Nutzerinnen genau überlegen, wieviel sie ausleihen und wie lange, denn es gibt stattdessen bald eine sogenannte Verlängerungsgebühr.

Folgende Vorteile ergeben sie laut Stadtbibliothek in Zukunft für die KundInnen:

“1. Mediennutzung in der Bibliothek und Medienentleihung sind kostenlos.
2. Leihfristverlängerung für Kindermedien ist auch weiterhin kostenfrei.
3. Sie zahlen nur für Leistungen, die Sie in Anspruch nehmen.
4. Sie können steuern, ob und in welcher Höhe Gebühren anfallen.
5. Für Sie Interessante Medien sind schneller wieder verfügbar.
6. Die neuen Gebühren sind fair, weil sie nicht zu umgehen sind und damit
7. Missbrauch zu Lasten der Allgemeinheit ausgeschlossen ist.”

Das folgende Video geht kurz auf die Eröffnung der Bibliothek nach dreijähriger Bauphase ein.

[Zitat] Unkommentiert – 1969

Libraries and librarians, as I have said, will be able to play a significant role. They must, and I repeat, develop an active orientation to these developments rather than mantain a passive wait-and-see attitude. To be activist will recquire that they develop new energies in seeking to identify the changing requirements of their patrons; to encourage rather than to resist demands for improved, expanded, and accelerated services; to be in a position to identify requirements so these systems will be more responsive to the library’s users; and, most important, to demonstrate a willingness to assume responsibility for meeting service requirements and a readiness to set their sails to the winds of change.”

“Was wäre, wenn die Hälfte der Theater und Museen verschwände, einige Archive zusammengelegt und Konzertbühnen privatisiert würden? 3200 statt 6300 Museen in Deutschland, 70 staatliche und städtische Bühnen statt 140, 4000 Bibliotheken statt 8200 – wäre das die Apokalypse? Was, wenn die frei gewordenen Mittel sich verteilen auf die verbleibenden Einrichtungen, auf neue Formen kultureller Produktion und Distribution, auf die Laienkultur, die Kunstausbildung und eine tatsächlich interkulturell ausgerichtete kulturelle Bildung? […] So wäre Zukunftsfähigkeit wieder Teil der Kulturpolitik.”

#libcampuk2011

Von John Dolan

Library Camp 2011 took place in Birmingham, England on 8 October – like a spontaneous outburst of thinking and enthusiasm. Though termed an “unconference” it was in fact a well-organised, lightly structured event of 173 participants (2 didn’t make it on the day)!

Jo McCausland (@libraryjmac) was inspired by a Local Government Camp a year earlier to set this up: a good venue; email and twitter announcements; Sponsorship (essential if admission is free and not easy to find at present!). It was fully booked online in 21 hours – yes!

There was a fantastic mix of library and information practitioners from all backgrounds plus people active in related fields like theatre and media. After (yes) everyone introduced themselves (who I am; why I’m here) people “pitched” to lead a session on a subject of their choice.

With 45 minutes for each session across 7 rooms there were 35 discussion groups through the day with multiple additional chances to network and make friends. Everything from the day is on the web.

There will surely be a #libcampuk 2012!

Worth mentioning that after an early humourous reference to cake many – many! – people brought cake to share. Look at the pictures!

Some of the sessions I attended or found the notes and links valuable include the following:

Transition: There is little investment in managing the transition between school and university. Learners are rarely able to transfer skills from one stage in education to the next; how librarians can help teachers and learners provide continuity so each stage in education builds on the previous. This applies to all stages in the education system. Librarians can work with teachers and students at all stages of education, avoiding waste and gaining more. Above all, embed the learning skills into the curriculum; learning skills are not “an extra” they are essential to education: http://intothehobbithole.blogspot.com/2011/10/libcampuk11-session-1-managing.html

Several areas of innovation discussions included Games and Gamification, Mobile apps (maybe more questions than answers but useful links), libraries without buildings, creative commons, open-source software, representing the most incredible opportunity for strategic library cooperation. A session on library philosophy reminds us of the many reasons we are here.

A Special Collections session was interesting. Early in the notes they referred to the fate of special collections as seeming like a private resource for the few. Much of the session was therefore about increasing accessibility. This was a key issue for me and a key purpose of creating the Library of Birmingham: http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/lob. Immense special collections are unknown to most but the expert; but it’s not just about display it is about actively interpreting their relevance in a modern diverse city community and projecting those collections globally.

Several linked and overlapping themes included Partnership, working with Stakeholders, Embedded Librarianship, Social Networking, Information Literacy, Social Change et al. Together these highlighted the centrality of libraries and their potential for other institutions and to the rest of society.

Useful contacts? Notes from most discussions have useful links. Or, follow #uklibchat led by and for library & information students and new librarians. Meets on twitter every Thursday 6 – 8pm. Each week there’s a topic to discuss. Older librarians can contribute on what’s happened before to inform progress or avoid reinventing the wheel.

Links that should be of interest.

“Reinvention and regeneration: the message for me at the Bibliothekartag 2011 Berlin June 2011”

Von John Dolan

I was first struck by the number of delegates – over 4,700 – and the scale and complexity of the event. Now here I was in Europe, at and event that would reflect the universal presence of libraries in our lives – in school, college and university, in business, health and government, in kindergarten and across the communities of cities, towns and villages. However, what really mattered was quality. I was not disappointed.

The most important feature – rather like CILIP’s Umbrella conference http://bit.ly/hZFDLy in the UK – was that the event embraced all library sectors and covered all aspects of library and information policy and provision; from technical to technology, from publishing to reading, from conservation to communications, from the physical to the virtual.

In Berlin. Being in Berlin for the first time was a phenomenal experience and I was helped hugely by Wolfgang Kaiser, my conference “mentor” both during the conference and on my weekend stay. We saw many sights – as librarian and tourist.

I went on the evening cycle ride for the Long Night of the Libraries. In contrast to the disturbing memorial to the Nazi book burning by Humboldt University (the guide said they only burnt books from public, not academic, libraries, which I found interesting) was the inspiring terraced interior of the 1995 university library.

From there we visited the Bibliothek am Luisenbad http://bit.ly/qyEwEk, a modernised and extended (1995) historic spa house. Children and families in this predominantly Turkish area are the priority. Staff tell of crowded days, not enough seats, staff and volunteer-supported learning and cultural programmes, partnerships with adult education, health and community workers. It is similar to my experience of UK inner-city library services and with 29 staff and 40 volunteers helping with programmes, though pressured, it is flourishing.

International colleagues reinventing libraries. I was amazed by the Cycling for Libraries group http://bit.ly/aCGSTb – their marathon journey from Copenhagen and their relaxed but persuasive presentation. Above all they – notably, organiser Mace Ojala – exuded a tremendous passion for libraries and the freedoms, learning and cultural experiences that people get from libraries.

Meeting colleagues from other countries is always rewarding; colleagues from developing countries struggle with hardly any resources to bring reading and learning to poor communities; in big western economies supporters advocate for libraries as democratic spaces; libraries are places to learn, community centres, information resources.

I was there because in 2010 I organised a visit to the UK of the DBV Commission for Intercultural Library Services. They came to look at library services for new communities and at the Bibliothekartag published a statement on the library’s role in this area of access and social justice. We hope it will soon be re-launched as a joint statement with CILIP in the UK.

It was a pleasure for me to meet friends and colleagues from the Goethe Institute in New Delhi. I had worked with them on Indian library development. It is typical of the Goethe that they carry the message of the value of libraries across the world (Goethe is supporting a conference in Athens in October Redefining Library Services: Responding to the Economic Downturn http://bit.ly/pQ2yWT ). The joy of the Goethe is that while they promote German language and culture they also invest imaginatively in the quality of life of their host countries.

Regenerating libraries. The power of the Bibliothekartag reminded me of such conferences in the UK about 20 years ago. The LIS community was strong, new communications technologies were emerging, new public and university libraries were opening. The UK has always been active in library innovation. At the moment UK public libraries, in particular, are suffering badly from cuts to public spending with reduced service budgets and threats of library. There are challenges too in other areas such as library services in schools. CILIP our national professional body is working hard advocating for library provision which we all know is fundamental to a free and prosperous society.

I am concerned that in twenty years time libraries in Germany are not suffering like their UK partners. How to avoid this? Libraries are often a resource that underpins other endeavour. Consequently they may be seen as peripheral to the main agenda. Instead our society cannot function without access to credible information and cultural resources that libraries mediate. Ensure that libraries develop a central role in education, lifelong learning, citizen and community information, literature and culture. Libraries are part of national life. Above all do the research to prove it and then promote that message loud and clear to advocates and power-brokers.

To maintain such a critical role librarians must constantly reinvent the library service responding to changing needs with new ideas, exploiting new learning and communications technologies, refreshing resources and renewing the unique and essential skills base of the library professional. What I saw at the Bibliothekartag 2011 was the regeneration of a united industry. I hope it can be shared as a model for other countries.
