Adventures at the Article Level

Published on

From interlibrary loan to openURL link resolvers, for years libraries have implemented and maintained services that deliver articles to users who need them. The article is increasingly the primary entity of scholarship. New services, standards, and research are emerging daily - all concerned with the article as an individual item. Libraries are often unaware of these article-related efforts. Join me for a provocative session that will examine the past, present, and possible near - and long-term futures of the articles as a scholarly entity in its own right.
