ARL is the bimonthly report on research library issues and actions from ARL (Association of Research Libraries), CNI (Coalition of Networked Information), and SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition). ARL reports on current issues of interest to academic and research library administrators, staff, and users; higher education administrators and faculty; information technologists and those who depend on networked information; as well as anyone concerned with the future of scholarly communication or information policy developments. Each issue explores a broad range of education topics of particular importance to research institutions and academic librarians. This February/April 2005 special double issue of the ARL Bimonthly Report includes a significant portion of the strategic plan and key excerpts from the Implementation Team Report, the Governance Task Force Report, and a summary of the work of the ARL Task Force on Future Financial Strategies. The complete reports were distributed to the full membership and are also posted on the ARL Web site, http://www.arl.org/arl/strategic_taskforces/.
