A Bimonthly Report on Research Library Issues and Actions from ARL, CNI, and SPARC, 2000.
Barrett, G. Jaia, Ed.
ARL, n208-213 Feb-Dec 2000
This document consists of the five issues of the bimonthly ARL (Association of Research Libraries) newsletter which cover the year 2000. Each issue includes some or all of the following sections: "Current Issues"; reports from SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), Coalition for Networked Information, Office of Leadership & Management Services, and Office of Scholarly Communication; "Diversity"; "Preservation"; "Statistics and Measurement"; "Federal Relations"; "ARL Activities"; and a calendar of events. A special double issue (for February and April) focuses on human resources. "Current Issues" articles cover: principles for emerging systems of scholarly publishing; the feasibility of the ARL developing a "library.org" Web presence, or scholars portal; library catalogs, scholarly portals, and blending the features of both in libraries; and establishing a role for research libraries in learning outcomes assessment programs.
