The Association of College and Research Libraries wants your help in identifying actionable steps that academic librarians can take to accelerate the transition to and build capacity for more open, inclusive, and equitable systems of scholarship.


I see this work as well aligned with the mission of DLF (…to advance research, learning, social justice, and the public good through the creative design and wise application of digital library technologies) and hope that you will participate in this feedback, even if you are not an ACRL member. 


This effort is part of the new Research Agenda on the Research Environment and Scholarly Communication System and is intended to capture insights in an effort to better understand priorities concerning the research environment and scholarly communications. A recent presentation on the agenda can be found here.


Whether you've already started this survey or not yet begun it, please do participate! We want to hear from you!


This survey will close at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, July 13, 2018.
