Strategic Directions Influencing Public Policies ARL will influence information and other public policies, both nationally and internationally, that govern the way information is managed and made available. Outcomes As ARL moves forward in this strategic direction, some expected outcomes in the next three years include: Outcome A: ARL will have influenced laws, public policies, regulations, and judicial decisions governing the use of copyrighted materials so that they better meet the needs of the educational and research communities (e.g., Fair Use and Fair Dealing will thrive and the public domain will be expanding). ARL will also have influenced other laws, public policies, regulations and judicial decisions that are of importance to research libraries. Outcome B: ARL will have contributed to reducing economic, legal, and technical barriers to access and use of the research results from publicly funded research projects, enabling rapid and inexpensive worldwide dissemination of facts and ideas. Outcome C: ARL will have proposed and influenced new models for the management and access to government information. Outcome D: ARL’s administrative and academic counterparts in research institutions will have a better understanding of the implications of public policy choices for advancing transformed systems of scholarly communication and of key public policy issues of import to research libraries. Outcome E: ARL will continue to be a leader in advocacy and educational efforts within North American and international research and educational communities.
