Presented at ASIST 2004 Annual Meeting; "Managing and Enhancing Information: Cultures and Conflicts" (ASIST AM 04), Providence, Rhode Island, November 13 - 18, 2004


Dramatic change in scientific research practice is underway. Computers are commonplace. High-speed networks that bring terms such as teraflop and petabyte to conversations regarding data and computational resources are making e-science a reality. New levels and global partnerships of collaborative work are taking place thanks to this terascale-ready infrastructure. What do these cyberinfrastructures mean for the conduct of science? What implications do these changes have for the management, organization, access, and preservation of scientific and technical information?
