The Role of the Library in the Scholar's Electronic Research Environment

Abstract

This paper examines how new systems of electronic information storage and delivery allow libraries not only to improve the traditional ways in which they have participated in the scholarly research process, but also to expand that participation well beyond traditional library functions. The effect of these new systems on libraries is most dramatic in the field which invented the Web, high-energy physics. The experiences of high-energy physics libraries over the past four years show the pivotal role libraries can play in creating a comprehensive electronic research environment.
