Join us for the PNW Institutional Repository User Group – Planning Meeting!

As more academic libraries have focused on how best to collect, preserve, and promote the scholarly and creative work of our faculty and students, it has created a new community of practice within the Pacific Northwest. We would like to bring that community together to share ideas and best practices and to identify opportunities for collaboration.

Our tentative goal is to create an annual IR user group meeting for IR managers in the Pacific Northwest (with the initial meeting in 2016). As a first step, we are having a planning meeting that is adjacent to the 2015 Orbis Cascade Alliance Summer Meeting. Anyone working with an IR in the Pacific Northwest is welcome to attend this meeting — membership in the Alliance is not required (nor will it be limited to be press institutions).

If you’re not able to attend, please send us your ideas for what a PNW IR user group meeting could/should look like (and whether it’s even a good idea!).

Date: July 9, 2015 / 12-1 pm

Location: Warner Pacific College, Room 120 (next to the cafeteria)

Details: Lunch is not provided, so bring a snack or brown bag lunch. We may adjourn to a local restaurant afterwards for a late lunch if there is interest.

Contact: Karen Bjork (kbjork@pdx.edu), Isaac Gilman (gilmani@pacificu.edu), Sue Kunda (kundas@mail.wou.edu), or Kathleen Spring (kspring@linfield.edu)
