Impressions from the CONSER Summit

In the Fall issue of CONSER Line, some participants in the CONSER Summit (Alexandria, Virginia, March 18-29, 2004) share their impressions. Quoting Roxanne Sellberg, Assistant University Librarian for Technical Services, Northwestern University Library: "I really started to understand how the information repository concept might evolve in a partly commercial, partly open access environment. Over the two days I became pretty well convinced that the scholarly journal as we currently know it does not have a long life ahead of it. However, there will be life after --for publishers and vendors and libraries."
