Why manage books, audio, video and external content in your company using SEBLib
Mission of SEBLib digital library is to help all employees inside a company to get
the best possible learning material they need for their work and inspire them for
further learning, cooperation and innovation.
SEBLib digital library offers efficient sharing of all material among your team
and employees. It is built as a site template for Windows SharePoint and as such
it is integrated into your organization’s intranet portal offering you flexibility
and extensibility included in the underlying document management and collaboration
Starting point in search for learning material
SEBLib is more than just a catalogue of your books. Initially it allows your colleagues
to enter books from their offices and favorite links from their browsers and make
them available to the whole organization. In the next step you can embed videos
and various learning material from internet portals and digital libraries. You can
recommend material to your team by writing a review or creating a simple learning
plan. Using the wish list you can suggest material for purchase.
SEBLib goal is to become the starting point in the search for learning material
within your organization. Employees can get all necessary information about material
that is available internally as well as guidance on alternative ways of obtaining
material they need for their work from external sources.
Books, videos, links to external content,
reviews, learning plans, wish lists,..
In addition to searching an internal library, you can check links to popular web
libraries and online stores, which is very useful for less skilled users who are
not skilled in search on the internet. Lots of books can be found for free on various
web portals; in this same way you can provide uniform instructions and procedures
for buying new material with links to your favorite online book stores.

SharePoint full text search inside attached content or in a more advanced way by
specifying various predefined metadata fields (author, title, category, location
SEBLib user experience is the same as with the rest of your SharePoint sites. Use
of standard SharePoint elements allows fast learning and easy adoption since users
are already familiar with your SharePoint intranet portal.
The library can be accessed with a web browser without any additional installations
on the client computer.
Distributed managment of material
In business organizations, material is often distributed among various teams as
opposed to the classical library where material is stored in a central location
– on library shelves. Lack of a central catalogue of purchased material limits material
availability to closed groups of people. SEBLib material can be managed by people
who use it most. At the same time, material remains available to everyone inside
Every user can manage his material and is responsible for its loan. This can be
a step forward to sharing knowledge and networking among otherwise isolated teams
inside an organization.
Motivation for learning and exploring
SEBLib integration into corporate intranet makes users aware of the library on every
portal visit. Its simple use allows everyone to contribute their valuable material
either from office desks or from the internet.
Experts can enter material into simple learning plans to help their less skilled
collegues to gain new knowledge as fast as possible. This can be very helpfull when
introducing new team members.

2010 and 2013 including free foundation and SharePoint online / Office 365.
How to start building your library?
SEBLib helps you build your library in four simple steps as described bellow.
Step 1: Create a »book catalog« and share it on your intranet to set foundations
Creating a list of available books is the initial step that allows all employees
to see what is available inside your company. In addition it gives a very important
message, showing that your company supports learning.
SEBLib helps you setup your catalog in the easiest way possible, either by importing
data from your existing solution, using predefined Excel template, using a barcode
reader or by entering data individually by each end user. Every user gets access
to the online catalog with personalized pages displaying loan related data and favorite
Step 2: Include »all relevant material« already used by your team
Many users take advantage of various external resources to solve their work related
issues and challenges. There are a lot of »how to« videos, blogs, specialized portals,
virtual libraries, web conferences and other content available on the internet.
When appropriate material is found it is usually added to web browser' favorites
or saved to a local disk. Usually it is not shared with other employees although
at least close team members could benefit from the same content.
Using SEBLib you can easily embed external videos, upload free e-books or add links
to content on various portals. With minimum effort you can gather materials that
were found useful by individuals inside your company and are closely related to
their tasks. Sharing great materials helps other colleagues to faster improve their
knowledge when joining a new team. As a company you can also identify main content
and related sources used by your employees. Later on you can decide to provide additional
courses or training if necessary.
Step 3: Add »your content« and increase value
When you read a book or watch a video you can rate it and share comments with other
users helping them in two ways: giving recommendations for good material and expose
yourself as an expert who can advise on the subject matter. In addition you can
also group materials into simple learning plans.
Step 4: Engage all employees, "motivate and inspire"
There are a lot of features included into SEBLib that will help you engage all employees
and motivate them for additional learning and exchange of knowledge. Some features
(like event calendar or wish lists) might be easily tracked separately using email
or a shared calendar outside SEBLib, but from user engagements perspective they
should be managed in SEBLib. Their role is to bring fresh content and motivate users
to visit library more often. Since SEBLib is part of your intranet, all users are
in constant contact with the library and they can see their colleagues’ contribution.
Motivation and inspiration can be found through teamwork and appropriate content.
