Barrett, Jaia, Ed.; Rounds, Laura, Ed.; Sabnis, Shona, Ed.; Wetzel, Karen A., Ed.
The program of the 128th meeting of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is designed around the notion of examining rapid changes taking place in individual institutions and becoming agile enough to adapt, to manage change, and to learn how to effectively lead libraries through these turbulent periods. The program is divided into three main Sessions: (1) Thriving Amid Uncertainty; (2) Perspectives on Leadership in Changing Times; and (3) Scholarly Communication and Technology. In addition to the panel discussions, the following papers are presented: "Universities as Agents of Change" (David W. Strangway); "Thriving Amid Uncertainty" (Jim Harris); "The Facts and Issues in the Michigan Document Services Case" (Susan Kornfield); "Amending Canada's Copyright Law While Renegotiating the Cancopy License" (Graham Hill); "Leading Teams To Lead Themselves" (Charles Manz); "Profiting from Those We Underestimate: Dissent and Innovation" (Charlan Nemeth); "The Critical Features of Innovation" (Andre Delbecq); "Learning How To Learn" (Jim Harris); "Columbia University's Online Books Evaluation Project" (Carol Mandel); "Project Muse" (James G. Neal); and "The Scan Project" (Susan F. Rosenblatt). Appendices include reports on the ARL business meeting, electronic scholarly publishing, global resources program, ARL activities from October 1995-April 1996, financial statements for 1995, and an ARL attendance list.
