In August 2019 the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), and EDUCAUSE announced a joint initiative to advance research libraries’ impact in a world shaped by emerging technologies. If there was ever a time to broadly share what is known in order for the community to determine the best approaches to advancing research and learning, this is it. This material was prepared prior to February 2020.
ARL, CNI and EDUCAUSE are now publishing two reports based on their work so far - an executive summary of secondary resources and discussions with research library leaders on their organisations’ adoption of emerging technologies; and a summary of interviews held with experts in research and academic technologies from several allied sectors: associations, businesses, academia, and the nonprofit research sector.
In the coming weeks ARL, CNI and EDUCAUSE will publish a series of more detailed reports by Sarah Lippincott on research libraries’ engagement with specific emerging technologies; these are outlined in the executive summary. In early April 2020 ARL, CNI and EDUCAUSE will conclude the second of two invitational virtual workshops with experts in learning and research applications of emerging technologies. A report covering the workshop discussions, which are focused on identifying achievable and desirable opportunities for research libraries, will be shared in May 2020.
