pub78. Scholarship, Instruction, and Libraries at the Turn of the Century
Results from Five Task Forces Appointed by the American Council of Learned Societies and the Council on Library and Information Resources
(1/99, 44 pp)
To understand how technology is changing the nature of scholarship and teaching, the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) joined forces to establish five task forces that examined these questions by looking at the special requirements posed by different types of information resources. The deliberations of these task forces are detailed in this report.
From the discussions, we have extracted all of the recommendations that were proposed by individual task force members. While some clear priorities emerged, the groups did not always attempt to reach consensus on the various recommendations nor to place them in priority order. Many of the ideas, we believe, will be pursued by professional associations and scholarly societies. We hope these recommendations will be discussed and adopted wherever appropriate.
