    Abstract

    Assuming that a Research Libraries Network is now to be created however, it could play a major role in taking integrated information services forward. So within its terms of reference, it should seek firstly to co-ordinate the R&D budgets of all the funding agencies in the field and aim to support and stimulate research and development notably under FP6; it should have a particular remit for advocacy and international relations; it should seek to explore the implications of grid computing in areas such as the humanities and social sciences, where there are huge opportunities; it should work on the issues associated with the discovery of and access to archives; it should lead work on preservation of electronic and especially of born digital material which remains a serious barrier to progress; it should aim to define and then set up a network of trusted repositories; it should aim to define information standards for local institutional servers and attempt to move England forward to the same level of activity as Wales and Scotland where coherent national planning for research collection discovery and access is in place; it should seek to explore the issues associated with electronic research collection building for future scholars, it might work with groups such as the Association of Research Libraries on projects such as the scholar's research portal; it should aggressively seek to change models of scholarly communication not merely debate them.
