dc.description.abstract From the introduction: "New technologies have provided expanded opportunities for scholars to create, distribute, and preserve their own knowledge. Through the development of digital libraries, digital repositories, open access and archives initiatives, and collaborative teaching and learning centers, librarians are working closely with scholars to harness the power and potential of technology to democratize access to and production of scholarship. By undertaking these activities, they are envisioning as well as building new paradigms for creating and managing in the information age. These emerging digital information sharing initiatives, or scholarly commons, allow universities to reclaim their intellectual assets and fulfill critical roles in the digital age--the advancement of knowledge, innovation, and creativity through democratic participation in the free and open exchange of ideas. "In this paper, I outline the progress toward utilizing new technologies and suggest strategies for helping universities and their research libraries reap the benefits of adopting these new models of access and participation over the coming years. I also discuss the challenges to achieving these new operational modes. In addition, I propose some designs for governance structures, financial models, partnerships, education and advocacy efforts that will help transform the academy into a 21st century institution that organizes, safeguards, preserves and promotes the knowledge assets of the scholarly community. Finally, I suggest research that is needed to advance theory and practice and suggest policy actions to support the growth and development of a sustainable information commons." en_US
