Scholars & Scholarship - Page: 2


Our priority is to align library strategy, staffing, and spending to advance the principles and practices of open scholarship. Through collective action with partners in research and learning communities, we increase the amount of high-quality scholarship that is openly available, support our members to promote “open science by design” within their own institutions, and provide leadership on high-impact collective collections initiatives.

Research libraries partner in the creation of new research and scholarship while they also manage vast collections in print, special collections, media, and other formats. A new openness in scholarly and research environments is transforming how knowledge is created, shared, and sustained. We contribute to this transformation by deeply engaging with scholarly communities and acting collectively to reduce friction between users and the information they seek and create.
