dc.description.abstract In the Spring of 2008, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) engaged Ithaka, a not-for-profit organization promoting innovation in academia, to conduct an investigation into the range of new models of scholarly publishing and communication valued by scholars, with a particular focus on those works that are pushing beyond the boundaries of traditional formats and are considered innovative by the faculty who use them. A field team of 301 librarians at 46 institutions interviewed professors about the digital resources they use. Among the key findings and works Karla Hahn, Director of the Office of Scholarly Communication at ARL, will describe include: •Evidence that innovative digital resources can be found across the humanities, social sciences, and scientific/technical/medical subject areas. •Almost every resource cited by faculty operates under some form of peer review or editorial oversight. •Some the resources with greatest impact are those that have been around a long while. •Many digital publications are capable of running on relatively small budgets and are tailored to small, niche audiences. •Innovations relating to multimedia content and Web 2.0 functionality appear in some cases to blur the lines between resource types. •Projects of all sizes, especially open access sites and publications, employ a range of support strategies in the search for financial sustainability. The findings were published in November 2008 and titled: “Current Models of Digital Scholarly Communication - Results of an Investigation Conducted by Ithaka for the Association of Research Libraries:” http://www.arl.org/bm~doc/current-models-report.pdf en_US
