Association of Research Libraries (ARL®)


Transforming Research Libraries

Judy Ruttenberg


News on the changing roles for research libraries appears regularly in the E-News for ARL Directors and ARL's Research Library Issues (RLI).


The transformation of research libraries mirrors, to a large degree, the ongoing evolution of research institutions and the practices of research and scholarship. ARL's third, and newest, strategic direction focuses on new and expanding roles for ARL libraries to engage in the transformations affecting research and research-intensive teaching and learning.
