This report is a summary of the findings from that process, including a draft strategic focus that captures the scope of thinking of the ARL membership that participated in this effort.

Transformational Times: An Environmental Scan Prepared for the ARL Strategic Plan Review Task Force

In 2009 the Association of Research Libraries is renewing its strategic plan. The plan that will result from this effort will guide the Association in setting priorities and organizing its activities for the next several years, a time that is expected to present unprecedented challenges and concomitant opportunities to research libraries. To support the work of the Strategic Planning Task Force, ARL senior staff have initiated an environmental scanning exercise to identify trends that are likely to affect research libraries and the work of the Association. The report considers not only challenges, but also opportunities.
