The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is an institutional membership organization of libraries and archives in major public and private universities, federal government agencies, and large public institutions in Canada and the United States. We advocate on research libraries’ behalf, advance the research and learning mission with our research and higher education partners, share intelligence on current issues, and develop the next generation of diverse library leaders.
The Association connects thought leaders about the future of research and learning, provides access to policy resources and insights, and a community that is uniquely aware of the dynamic and shifting role that libraries play in the research enterprise. Our focus is on supporting every member of the community as they develop as leaders and shape the future of the research ecosystem.
The Annual Report highlights the progress on our 2019–2021 Action Plan.
