ARL Publishes First E-Only Bimonthly Report, Research Library Issues

Washington DC--The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has published its first e-only bimonthly report, Research Library Issues (RLI), which now sports a new look and title. The e-only format enables broad distribution of the articles and the introduction of new features, such as audio excerpts from speaker presentations. The focus of the publication continues to be on the major issues that affect the ability of research libraries to meet the academic and research needs of the diverse communities they serve.

The first issue of RLI, no. 262 (February 2009), features two ARL statements--on the university's role in the dissemination of research and scholarship, and on the global economic crisis--and an article by University of Washington's Elisabeth Jones on "Reinventing Science Librarianship: Themes from the ARL-CNI Forum." In addition, ARL's Martha Kyrillidou writes on "Redefining Serial Counts and Remaining Relevant in the 21st Century."

RLI is a continuation of the publication ARL: A Bimonthly Report on Research Library Issues from ARL, CNI, and SPARC. RLI continues the numbering of this serial with no. 262. Current and back issues of the publication are freely available as PDFs on the ARL Web site. The Web site is also where you may sign up for alerts of new releases of RLI and learn about submitting ideas for articles. See
