Evolving User Behaviors: The Impact Upon Research Libraries in the Digital Age
Rapid developments in information technologies have impacted scholarly communication, teaching and learning in fundamental ways. The time-honored practice of a community of scholars gathering on a single campus to pursue a common research interest is being challenged as the symbol of university research. In its stead there has emerged world-wide discipline-centered scholarship where collaboration and synergy are dependent upon the Internet and the World Wide Web. New research methods mine universes of data vastly deeper and richer than the print world enabled, extend inquiry into data structures more complex than the book and the journal, and give rise to new meanings of the notion of ""original sources."" Student learning and student behaviors are also evolving. The evident GenX penchants--for multi-tasking and group collaboration, for electronic information and self-sufficiency--also bring new challenges to all of those on campus who share responsibilities in the increasingly complex learning space that the university itself has become. This paper reflects on some of the efforts of one research library to respond to the pressures of the digital age while sustaining its efforts to build enduring repositories of the human record.

Beyond Coexistence: Finding Synergies between Print Resources and Digital Information
Print and digital technologies can do more than just coexist; they can be used in concert to increase the use and value of each other. For example, both students and faculty are creating new digital information products such as multimedia objects or websites by building upon textual or print resources. Libraries can be more proactive in finding ways to promote the synergy between digital and print materials. This paper will explore some existing models and propose additional ways that libraries can encourage greater use and creation of all types of information resources.

Shaping Our Space: Envisioning the New Research Library
Academic librarians are designing new spaces in their libraries, in some cases through the re-design and renovation of existing facilities and in rarer cases through the opportunity to design an entirely new building. At the Ohio State University, the hundred-year-old central research library on campus is undergoing a major $100 million transformation that involves elements of restoration, gutting, tear down, and new build. What are the architectural and library programmatic directions that are guiding this project and other space design projects in research libraries today? How much space should be devoted to print collections and services, and how much space should be devoted to digital services, information commons, and other new demands on library space? The answers are to be found through an exploration of emerging library practices of ""content management"" and ""learning space design"" that must be linked to the aesthetics and functionality of effective architecture.

JSTOR: Past, Present, and Future
JSTOR has become a standard offering at most US universities and colleges, as well as a growing number of higher education institutions outside the US. This paper will track the growth of JSTOR since its inception in 1995 as an experimental digitization project to today as an archive of over 500 scholarly titles in 40 disciplines. We will consider the two threads of JSTOR’s mission – to safeguard titles in a digital form, and to provide access to them as broadly as possible – and assess the value the project has provided to the academic community. In addition, there will be some discussion of future directions and challenges for JSTOR.

Bridging the Abyss: Rational Strategies for Embracing Digital without Losing the Past
This paper will describe recent efforts by CRL and its member libraries to liberate capital and other resources encumbered by the storage and maintenance of redundant paper and film collections. Cooperative print archiving, virtual storage, and other strategies offer effective ways of ensuring persistent access to critical tangible research materials.

The Digital Difference in Reference Collections
One of the very first digital library developments was the transition of bibliographies to digital formats and the rise of online services which allowed new kinds of searching for topics. Here we examine three other reference genres: 1) Gazetteers, which, when coupled with maps and bibliographies, allow new ways to search by place; 2) Chronologies, which when digitized and combined with time lines and named time periods, transform search by time; and 3) Biographical directories, which, with improved design, could link persons with their contexts in new and more effective ways. The paper will present work developed in a project entitled: Support for the Learner: What, Where, When, and Who.

Collection Development in a Time of Changing Scholarly Agendas, Shifting Information Formats, Emerging Institutional Interdependencies, and Ongoing Resource Constraints
Our conceptual models for collection development within research libraries took shape in a context that, in retrospect, appears both prosperous and stable. The environment has changed, and the community is now engaged in a self-conscious effort to rethink what we do and to revitalize our sense of purpose and possibility. This presentation will recapitulate the reassessment process, and suggest areas that still need work.

The End of Print Journals
This paper will look at the expectations and concerns related to a final transition from print to electronic scholarly journals. It will consider the end of print editions from the librarians', scholars', academic administrators' and publishers' perspectives and pose a scenario for making this change.
