The AAU/ARL global resources program: The view from a crossroads


Journal Article

The Global Resources Program was created in 1996 to address problems of access to international research materials, the “crisis in foreign acquisitions.” A joint endeavor of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Association of American Universities (AAU), the program capitalizes on technological advances to expand the array of resources available to scholars. The paper reviews the program's accomplishments, evaluates progress on the original goals, and speculates on areas of future emphasis, within the context of cooperative collection development strategies. © 2003, by The Haworth Press, Inc.
