GOVERNANCE AND MEMBERSHIP ACTIVITIES

1. Charles Lowry Named ARL Executive Director

Charles B. Lowry was named as Executive Director of ARL, effective July 1, 2008. ARL President Marianne Gaunt (Rutgers) announced the appointment via e-mail to the ARL membership. Since 1996, Dr. Lowry has been the Dean of Libraries at Maryland. Within ARL he has served on numerous committees, and he was elected by the membership to serve on the ARL Board of Directors for 2005–08. In his 30 years as an academic library director, Dr. Lowry has served on boards of SOLINET and Amigos as well as OCLC advisory committees and chaired state consortia. In addition to his teaching and research experience, he has co-founded two journals: Library Administration and Management and portal: Libraries and the Academy, which he currently edits. For more details on Dr. Lowry’s career, see his bio at http://www.lib.umd.edu/deans/deanswelcome.html.

Dr. Lowry will step down from his deanship at Maryland and take a leave of absence to lead ARL for the next three years. When this limited term concludes, he will return to teaching and research in the university’s iSchool, where he holds a tenured professorship. The ARL Board expressed its appreciation to the University of Maryland administration for making it possible for Dr. Lowry to take on this important assignment.

PUBLIC POLICIES AFFECTING RESEARCH LIBRARIES

9. Orphan Works Legislation Moves Forward

After many years of discussion and negotiations, the US Senate and House recently introduced legislation to address the thorny issues associated with the use of orphan works. Orphan works are works whose owners are difficult or even impossible to locate. Given the extremely tight congressional schedule, the House and Senate are moving quickly on this legislation. On May 7, the House Subcommittee on the Courts, Internet and Intellectual Property marked up H.R. 5889, the Orphan Works Act of 2008. The Chairman (Rep. Berman, D-CA) committed to working with key stakeholders to effect changes prior to the legislation moving forward. The Senate Committee on the Judiciary is expected to act the week of May 12.

ARL, through the Library Copyright Alliance (LCA), has provided suggested amendments on the orphan works legislation to the Senate and the House Committees. LCA’s support of the legislation is predicated on the acceptance of these proposed changes to the legislation. Issues including state sovereign immunity, establishment of a “dark archive,” development of “a best practice” by the Copyright Office, and more require change prior to endorsement. Higher education associations including the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) are focused on state sovereign immunity issues and are working with Senate and House staff to ensure that the bill language is acceptable. For more information, see http://www.arl.org/pp/ppcopyright/orphan/.

10. NIH Seeking Public Comment on Revised Public Access Policy—Deadline May 31

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) continues to solicit public comments on the agency's revised NIH Public Access Policy (http://publicaccess.nih.gov/comments.htm). This most recent request for comments is in response to critics of the revised policy. NIH is seeking information on three questions:

a. Do you have recommendations for alternative implementation approaches to those already reflected in the NIH Public Access Policy?

b. In light of the change in law that makes NIH’s public access policy mandatory, do you have recommendations for monitoring and ensuring compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy?

c. In addition to the information already posted at http://publicaccess.nih.gov/communications.htm, what additional information, training, or communications related to the NIH Public Access Policy would be helpful to you?

Comments may be filed at http://publicaccess.nih.gov/comments2/comments.htm by 5:00 p.m. eastern time, May 31, 2008. At a meeting on March 20, 2008, Prue Adler spoke in support of the revised NIH Public Access Policy and called for NIH to reconsider the current 12-month embargo period after the official date of publication. See http://www.arl.org/pp/access/accessfunded/nihaccess/ and http://publicaccess.nih.gov/open_meeting_march_2008.htm.

11. Publishers Sue Georgia State University over Electronic Course Content

Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, and Sage Publications, with support from the Association of American Publishers (AAP), filed suit against Georgia State University, challenging the university's electronic reserves and course content practices. The suit claims that Georgia State is providing students with access to copyrighted works without the authorization of the publishers. The publishers and the AAP seek to end how Georgia State University manages digital course content and seek declaratory and injunctive relief. In addition, the plaintiffs take issue with the institution's use of the "Regents Guide to Understanding Copyright & Educational Fair Use," a copyright document from the Board of Regents of the University System.

In addition to the AAP and the plaintiffs, the Association of University Presses strongly supports the lawsuit against Georgia State University. ARL is closely following developments in this case and assessing implications for ARL members and the library community. For more information, contact Prue Adler, prue@arl.org.

12. Internet Archive Challenges FBI Request for Data

In response to a lawsuit by the Internet Archive, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) withdrew a request for data about one of the archive's patrons. Issuing a National Security Letter, or NSL, the FBI sought information concerning an individual's name, address, and electronic transactional records of the archive user. The NSL issued by the FBI also included a gag order, which has also been rescinded by the FBI. In 2006, Congress limited the authority of law enforcement to demand records from libraries. Law enforcement has issued NSLs in order to acquire personal customer records from Internet Service Providers, credit reporting agencies, and financial institutions. In an earlier case a library consortium in Connecticut was served an NSL by the FBI. Both the gag order on the consortium and the NSL were later withdrawn when challenged by the consortium. The Electronic Frontier Foundation and the ACLU represented the Internet Archive. For more information, please see http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=192021.

13. ARL & Others Urge NARA to Continue Snapshots of Agency Web Pages

ARL along with 19 other organizations expressed serious concerns with the recent decision by the National Archives and Record Administration (NARA) to discontinue the capture and preservation of a "snapshot" of government Web pages at the end of the current administration. The signatories of the letter asked the Archivist to rescind the NARA decision. The groups noted that "not capturing federal web sites now may mean losing millions of pages created during the Bush administration," In addition, they stated that "these records are essential components of our Nation's history. No other agency has both the public mandate and the public accountability necessary for protecting historical records." The letter is available at http://www.arl.org/pp/access/accessresources/.

14. PRO IP Bill Moves Forward

On May 8, the US House of Representatives passed H.R. 4279, the Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act of 2007, better known as the PRO IP bill. Provisions in the legislation seek to strengthen the civil and criminal laws relating to copyright and trademark infringement, establish a new office in the Office of the President that would coordinate national and international intellectual property enforcement initiatives, and would establish a new intellectual property division within the Department of Justice. In response to extensive concerns expressed about selected provisions—especially Section 104 which would alter copyright law with regards to statutory damages—changes were made to the legislation. Other troubling provisions remain in the bill but none that directly affect libraries. For more information, contact Prue Adler, prue@arl.org.

16. CLIR Publishes Essays on Core Functions of the Research Library in the 21st Century

Earlier this year, CLIR commissioned a set of short essays as context pieces for a meeting on the future of the research library. Authors Paul Courant, Andrew Dillon, Richard Luce, Stephen Nichols, Daphnee Rentfrow, Abby Smith, Kate Wittenberg, and Lee Zia identify leading issues to be considered when imagining the roles and functions of the academic library in the 21st century. They address implications of online access to content, new forms of scholarly publishing, and evolving and leveraging digital library service frameworks. Other essays address new library roles in e-research; collaboration with and outreach to academic faculty, researchers, end users, and content providers; and educating “by design,” or with an emphasis on undergraduate research methodologies. The essays are now available on the CLIR Web site http://www.clir.org/activities/registration/08r21.html.

17. Learning Commons Assessment Using Qualitative Techniques

North Carolina State University (NCSU) student Stephen Sherman conducted a qualitative assessment of NCSU’s new learning commons for his master’s paper for the MSLS degree. Sherman evaluated student responses to a survey (both print and online) that measured qualitative dimensions for using the commons, garnered impressions to both physical characteristics and technologies deployed in the space, assessed overall ambiance, and solicited suggestions for improvements. The survey findings were complemented and reinforced by an analysis of user feedback captured via a long-running discussion board. The study can be found at http://etd.ils.unc.edu/dspace/bitstream/1901/540/1/stephensherman.pdf.

18. Library Learning Commons Case Studies Featured in New Book

A new book from Chandos Press, Learning Commons: Evolution and Collaborative Essentials, examines academic library learning commons at institutions in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Scotland, and the US, including the libraries of Georgia Tech, Ohio University, University of Southern California, and University of Tennessee. These case studies suggest different methodologies for planning and implementing learning commons, as well as addressing how to collaborate with campus stakeholders; budgeting and staffing; and determining equipment, hardware, and software needs. Also provided are memoranda of understanding, planning checklists, and assessment tools. The book brings a unifying focus to the collaborative aspect of creating library learning spaces in partnership with other campus agencies. See Barbara Schader, ed., Learning Commons: Evolution and Collaborative Essentials (London: Chandos Publications [Oxford], 2008).
