This research probes future roles for libraries in the scholarly communication process through the use of scenarios. The researchers asked 20 ARL library directors to read and provide constructive comments on the scenarios, name the scenarios, and either select a scenario that most closely matched their vision or propose a new scenario. The directors identified six possible futures. Issues such as library as publisher, the economy, and the need for collaboration are discussed, as well as the timeframe for such futures and the desire versus the likelihood of a particular scenario happening. (Contains 46 notes and 2 figures.)
