Abstract

The ARL Scholars Portal Working Group was established in 2000 to advance the concept of a collective research library presence on the Web. On 1 May 2002, there was a public news release that a Scholars Portal Project was being launched by several ARL member libraries (a subset of the working group) in collaboration with ARL and Fretwell-Downing, Inc. (FD). This report summarizes the work of the Scholars Portal Working Group from its inception, including the group's sense of key portal features and functionality. The report concludes with a recommendation to the ARL Board to discharge the Scholars Portal Working Group and replace it with a new ARL Working Group on Portal Applications.
