Linking up library resources with digital rights management: Challenges and opportunities on Indonesia

Radical changes in information technology coupled with the evolution of the Internet in the last decades has drastically disturbed the hitherto maintained balance between the interests of the library user, libraries and content providers. The library user, libraries, and content provider were empowered with new technologies that enabled the creation of born-digital content and the ability to distribute it around the world with virtually no effort or cost. As a fast-growing internet user in the world, the library in Indonesia has changed the way in serving library resources to users and content providers. Mobile apps has become a trend and is considered to be the easy way to transform library services. To stem indiscriminate copyright violation of intellectual property, libraries in Indonesia were pressured by content producers to develop effective copy protection systems inside library mobile apps. Digital Rights Management (DRM) is considered a solution. The aim of this research is to see the effect of implementation of DRM on the iPusnas mobile app with regard to library users, content producers and libraries. This research will try to see the challenges and opportunities of DRM implementation in Indonesia. This paper is using Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) approach, which is a study on a problem and finds solutions to offer. This method involves identifying a goal or a purpose, formulates a problem, defines solutions and puts a plan into action. Some findings are that the iPusnas mobile app is very helpful forl inking up the the content publishers and library users. The iPusnas mobile app with DRM has facilitated the access of library resources. Challenges faced by implementation of DRM include lack of interest from content providers in transforming their products into a digital format, and security and internet infrastructure that affect content providers when transforming their products into digital format. Conclusion of this research shows library resources with DRM is has high potential to grow fast in Indonesia.
