Develop projects and activities that address scholarly communication issues
such as cost and use/impact of open-access articles and licensed journals,
future of the extended argument and changing trends for the scholarly
monograph, continuing access to data and other varieties of content beyond
traditional published literature, linked digital repositories for managing
scholarly output, the role of universities in the dissemination of scholarship,
and policies regarding the creation and ownership of scholarly work,
especially author rights and rights associated with the collaborative
creation of new types of complex media.
Strategy 3: Actively pursue the development of a variety of appropriate
responses to unacceptable business practices (e.g., develop and assess
strategies that libraries could take in the marketplace that are within
acceptable legal practice, monitor faculty actions, broaden the cadre of
economists and legal anti-trust scholars undertaking research on new
pricing models, assess consequences of bundling, develop principles and
best practices around licensing terms).
Strategy 4: Accelerate and enhance outreach and communication efforts
to inform the educational and research communities on trends, findings,
opportunities and their impact on faculty assessment (e.g., promotion and
tenure, post tenure review, and annual review); new models of peer review
for research and teaching; evolving university budget and financial
planning, and strategic visioning. Encourage and support outreach and
communication efforts to educate new scholars and graduate students about
scholarly communication systems and their roles as researchers and authors.
Expand offerings through the ARL/ACRL Institute on Scholarly
Communication.
Strategy 5: Build on current relationships with partners such as the
Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, Coalition for
Networked Information, Association of College and Research Libraries,
Canadian Association of Research Libraries, and through alliances with the
Association of American Universities, Association of Public and Land-grant
Universities, and other organizations that share common interests in
influencing the changing environment of scholarly communication.
