dc.description.abstract During AY 2009/10 OSU Libraries’ Research and Innovative Services Department (RIS) conducted a pilot project on “environmental scanning.” One of our goals for the year is to develop a process to investigate emerging trends based on a topic and disseminate our findings. Initially we each scanned a segment of the library universe (government and funding, education, technology, etc.) by perusing articles, web pages, blogs and more. From that we identified three topics that we would investigate in more depth. These were: the future of the journal, the internet of things, and social media. In the course of discussing how RIS might do this team exercise we concluded that using different tools for “communicating” to different audiences were needed. Within our department we used Google Groups to share items we discover and to comment on these among ourselves before summarizing our findings for a wider audience, the staff and faculty at OSU Libraries. We elected to start the “NextGen Libraries at OSU” blog and write what we hoped would be interesting posts on our findings for these topics. We recognized that we are not experts on these topics and wanted to provide a forum for the staff and faculty within the library to provide their insights by commenting on the blog postings. At the end of this pilot project a survey of the staff confirmed our belief that the blog has not proved a success for garnering greater participation within the library. en
