Two New Releases from Association of Research Libraries: Strategic Planning & Digital Archives

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) recently released 2 issues of its publication Research Libraries Issues.
  • Issue 278: "This issue of RLI features strategies for managing time from Shirley K. Baker, recently retired from Washington University in St. Louis. Her insights stem from years of experience and address the critical balance of multiple priorities in a library director’s life. Also in this issue, several authors discuss the value of the ARL 2030 Scenarios in strategic planning. Jennifer Church-Duran and Deborah Ludwig from the University of Kansas (KU) present a review of the ARL scenarios and how they can be used effectively to engage library staff in discussions about future services and programs. They follow this introduction by describing how the scenarios created a foundation for the KU Libraries’ strategic plan and influenced their contributions to the university’s campus plan. The ARL 2030 Scenarios come together with the balanced scorecard in an article by library staff at Johns Hopkins University and McMaster University."
  • Issue 279:  "This issue of RLI provides an overview of the legal and contractual issues involved in digitizing special collections and archives. The issue also includes a model digitization contract for use with outside vendors, as well as model 'deeds of gift' that can secure permission from rights holders to make donated material accessible on the web. Finally, the issue presents a critical essay by Kevin L. Smith, Director of Scholarly Communications at Duke University, on a new way of thinking about copyright and risk management in digitizing special collections."
ARL is a nonprofit membership organization of 126 research libraries in Canada and the United States.
