Rethinking the Library in the Information Age. Volume III. Building an Infrastructure for Library Research.
Mathews, Anne J., Ed.
This report is the third in a set of three reports from the project, "Issues in Library Research: Proposals for the 1990s," which was launched in September 1986 to investigate library and information science issues in order to assess the current state of the profession and identify a research agenda to lead into the next decade. This volume presents five papers: (1) "Overview of Position Papers and Discussion" (Robert M. Hayes); (2) "The Role of Professional Library Associations in Creating an Infrastructure for Research in Library and Information Science" (Miriam Drake, Jeffrey Katzer, Mary Jo Lynch, Ann Prentice, Robert Wedgeworth, and Julie Virgo); (3) "A Library Think Tank: Creating an Independent Center for Library-Oriented Information Research and Policy Studies" (Kathleen Eisenbeis, Sul Lee, Barbara Markuson, Ruth Person, and Duane Webster); (4) "Research Libraries or Library Consortia as the Basis for Creating a Research Infrastructure in Library and Information Science" (Nancy Kranich, Pat Molholt, Paul Evan Peters, Frank Polach, Karin Trainer, and Jerome Yavarkovsky); and (5) "University-Based Models: Creating Centers for Research in Library and Information Science" (Mary Biggs, Deanna Marcum, Jane Robbins, Abraham Bookstein, and Kathleen Heim). The four position papers, along with the matrix analyzed in the introduction, offer very specific suggestions and proposals, as well as reminders of the obstacles to be faced. A list of the participants in this phase of the project is included. (CGD)
