At research library conference, speakers push for advocacy

“University libraries need to advocate for government openness and electronic record keeping, speakers during the Association of Research Libraries fall membership conference implored on Wednesday, or risk the digital landscape’s becoming a “digital landfill.” The call to action emerged from a day during which members of the association debated how libraries should involve themselves in producing accessible digital resources, managing institutional data and supporting campus innovation. Speakers, among them archivists, legal experts, federal workers and university librarians, urged a more proactive role that included advocacy beyond the boundaries of their institutions.” (via @insidehighered)
