The website highlights the work of the Association and its members to achieve the shared objective of advancing an equitable and enduring research information environment that meets the needs of scholars now and in the future.
The site is organized around ARL’s four priorities:
- Advocacy & Public Policy in support of ARL’s mission and shared objective
- Data & Analytics on research library practices, effectiveness, and impact
- Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in library services, collections, and work environments
- Scholars & Scholarship—collective efforts to achieve enduring and barrier-free information access
We hope the website provides you with insights into the value and impact of research libraries. We welcome feedback by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
