Our research libraries provide tools, content, and services to support the scholarly needs of our faculty and students. Library programs, and indeed our organizations as a whole, must align fully with our institutions’ evolving international objectives. Three closely linked, strategic recommendations will facilitate this transformation. Research libraries must energetically shift toward digital sources as they continue their support for international scholarship. They must fully internationalize all of their programs and services. And they must build active collaborations, on an international as well as national level, that embrace all relevant players and partners.
- Aggressively pursue broad digital access to international information resources
- Internationalize research library services and perspectives
