The ARL Office of Scholarly Communication works to create new models for scholarly exchange that build on the widespread adoption of digital technologies and networking for research, teaching, and learning.
"Authors Alliance promotes authorship for the public good by supporting authors who write to be read. We embrace the unprecedented potential digital networks have for the creation and distribution of knowledge and culture. We represent the interests of authors who want to harness this potential to share their creations more broadly in order to serve the public good."
Create Change is an initiative examining new opportunities in scholarly communication and advocating changes that recognize the potential of the networked digital environment among scholars and researchers.
"Digital Scholarship provides information and commentary about digital copyright, digital curation, digital repository, open access, research data management, scholarly communication, and other digital information issues."
Focusing on independent, documentary and public media, the Center bridges boundaries between scholars, producers and communication practitioners across media production, media impact, public policy and audience engagement.
SPARC is an international alliance of academic and research libraries working to stimulate the emergence of new scholarly communication models that expand the dissemination of scholarly research and and reduce financial pressures on libraries.
