Working with creators, distributors, librarians, archivists, and users of information resources in all formats and media, CLIR seeks to identify barriers to keeping information accessible over time, and to forge workable strategies for its stewardship. Much of this work is described in Current Activities. Relevant publications are listed under Strategies and Tools for the Digital Library, Optimizing Collections and Services, and Tools for Practitioners. 53635065-7914-41aa-aa9b-95fec88f0e13 7eccb062-20dd-4a03-8ad9-517fd3c7d8a5 fb516a9a-67d7-48ea-a455-fc55df440519 Leadership Expand leadership capacity in the information professions. _07f24f21-dd8e-46e1-8d39-8b7571d0bf48 2 Information professionals require new combinations of skills and expertise to work effectively in an environment characterized by rapidly evolving technologies, new forms of scholarly communication, and increasingly diverse demands of information seekers. In partnership with other institutions, CLIR has developed training institutes, such as the Frye Leadership Institute, and a range of fellowship programs and intern experiences, described under Awards, to build a new cadre of information professionals. Relevant publications are listed under Building Leadership in the Information Professions. df0985c6-ffbd-4008-aa2b-a1cf99cd1bba 9b7d5ca8-a66b-4565-ba5d-867f69266925 92e2fc2f-34a0-451f-9986-43aea69df510 Analysis of Change Analyze changes in the information landscape and help practitioners prepare for them. _540e7c9a-22a1-4caf-b6f9-6a7daedaf563 3 _466d45d0-5e3d-4b0a-b360-18db1eec7fdf Technology has revolutionized how we find, acquire, create, store, and share information. This has profound implications for how we plan and budget for library buildings and services, who is responsible for keeping information and how it will be kept, publishing models, and, increasingly, access rights. CLIR works with leaders in the academic, library, technology, publishing, and legal professions in the United States and abroad to understand these emerging trends. Relevant publications are listed under Managing Economic Challenges and Perspectives on the Evolving Library. Summaries of relevant meetings and symposia, such as CLIR’s 2004 Sponsors’ Symposium, Libraries and Learning, are available in Meetings and Forums. b8ed862e-95e0-433c-876a-18900c72a6d8 2f4bf885-d00e-4a08-b552-8517d136883b 2010-02-08 http://www.clir.org/about/about.html#mission Arthur Colman (www.drybridge.com) colman@drybridge.com Submit error.
