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.

SHARE Notification Service Architectural Overview

The SHARE notification service will gather information about research release events through both a direct push protocol and a harvest strategy. The service will then notify consumers of these events through free subscriptions to predefined channels of notices and by allowing searches of its digest of research release events. The notification service is only the first step along the road to SHARE's long-term vision of a robust repository ecosystem for research output. This document describes the notification service in detail.
