Joan K. Lippincott, “Cyberinfrastructure: Opportunities for Connections and Collaboration,” Evolving Information Futures: Conference Proceedings for the 11th Biennial Conference of the Victorian Association for Library Automation, February 6-8, 2002, Melbourne, Australia, pp. 437-450.
This paper explores the concepts of envisioning and building a cyberinfrastructure, a framework for developing interrelationships between high performance computing, networking, digital libraries, and people. The focus is on the new types of user services that libraries might create and offer and on the broad range of content that can be part of digital libraries. The important role of establishing partnerships and collaborations to build the components of the cyberinfrastructure is emphasized.
