The New Digital Landscape of Government Information: Implications for Research Libraries

Although providing access to scholarly literature is a core mission, US and Canadian research libraries have historically also played a key role in ensuring the survival of critical primary documentation produced outside of academia. The advent of big data and digital technologies are fundamentally altering the life cycle of such documentation, calling for a "new system of action" to ensure the long-term integrity of important societal evidence. This session will explore the challenges these developments present in the field of government information, in light of the recent controversial losses and unauthorized disclosures of US government records.

ARL Membership Refines Strategic Thinking and Design at Spring 2014 Meeting

ohio-state-u-thompson-libraryimage © OSU, photo by Meera on Buckeyes BlogARL president Carol Pitts Diedrichs of The Ohio State University (OSU) convened the 164th ARL Membership Meeting in Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday afternoon, May 6, 2014. Almost all of the program sessions at this meeting focused on the current ARL strategic thinking and design process, upon which the Association embarked in the fall of 2013 to define its role in higher education and to maximize ARL’s ability to be agile and responsive to changing priorities and member needs. The meeting also included a panel discussion of SHARE (SHared Access Research Ecosystem), a higher education and research community initiative to ensure the preservation of, access to, and reuse of research outputs.
