Transforming Research Libraries ARL will articulate, promote and facilitate new and expanding roles for ARL libraries that support, enable and enrich the transformations affecting research and research-intensive education. Outcomes As ARL moves forward in this strategic direction, some expected outcomes in the next three years include: Outcome A: ARL and its members will have a clear and dynamically evolving vision of new roles and key transformations that must occur to ensure that library expertise and assets are aligned with and advance the research process. The value of these new roles and services will be increasingly understood by the research and university community. Outcome B: ARL members will be engaged in a variety of innovative collaborations and partnerships at their institutions and among the membership that enhance the capacity of the research library to contribute to advancing research, scholarship, and graduate education. Outcome C: ARL members will be making significant contributions to e research and cyberinfrastructure development and will be engaged in a variety of partnerships for data management and sharing of research content with faculty. They will be an integral part of university centers and collaboratives for cyberinfrastructure, including multi-institutional programs. Outcome D: Faculty and researchers at ARL institutions will have more and better access to material in any form that extends their capacity for research. Individually and collectively, ARL members will have increased their capacity to manage, preserve, and make accessible unique content in all formats for which they assume primary responsibility, including institutional memory documents and materials harvested from the web. Members will have a balanced relationship between physical and digital collections appropriate to changing methods of research and scholarship, and an effective base of practice for managing and preserving print and digital collections.
