ABSTRACT Les bibliothèques devraient être considérées comme des outils de recherche qui évoluent avec la technologie. Internet a changé la façon de communiquer la science et par conséquent le rôle des bibliothèques a changé . Les chercheurs peuvent maintenant mettre leurs articles soumis au contrôle des pairs, en Libre Accès (LA) (c.a.d.un texte intégral ,gratuit, en ligne sur le web) de deux façons différentes : (1)en les publiant dans des revues en LA et (2) en les auto-archivant dans leurs archives institutionnelles. Les bibliothécaires sont les meilleures alliées des chercheurs dans ces deux stratégies du LA. Quelques uns des meilleurs exemples sont décrits dans cet article. Nous en concluons qu'il faut une politique d'obligation d'auto-archiver pour accélérer la croissance du LA -et par conséquent l'usage de la recherche et son impact - partout dans le monde.

    ABSTRACT: Scholarly publishing is concerned with the distribution of scholarly information through journals and conferences and other information media. As such scholarly publishing can be understood as a specific part of the information industry. With the advent of advanced information technologies many possible technologically enabled futures have been posited for scholarly publishing. This paper describes the current systems, processes and actors. While technological advancements appear to be enabling access to scholarly publications, economic conditions appear to limit access. In addition, a number of alternatives, such as open access are currently in play and there is uncertainty regarding the future of the scholarly publishing system. The system appears to be in the process of being reassembled. Conceptual models of the traditional, the electronic, and some possibilities for future developments in scholarly publishing are proposed, as are topics for future research in the information systems domain.
