Briefly Noted

New-Model Scholarship: How Will It Survive?Abby Smith. (CLIR Reports, no. 114) Washington, DC: Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR), 2003. 55 p. $15 Full text (PDF and HTML) also available online <> (ISBN 1-887334-99-8)

This report grew out of a 2002 meeting, hosted by CLIR and funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, to discuss the preservation of digital scholarly resources and the needs of various stakeholders. The report includes summaries of discussion at the conference and two papers circulated in advance, written by Dale Fleckner (Harvard University) and Abby Smith and Daniel Greenstein (CLIR and Digital Library Federation). Smith argues that the "new-model," born-digital scholarship being produced by faculty and graduate students is worthy of access into the future and trustworthy digital archives should be created for long-term accessibility.
