Terry Reese and the Libraries of Oregon project team.
The Libraries of Oregon project represents a collaborative effort by the State Library and the Oregon State University Libraries & Press. The project team has created a shared resources that will effectively provide access to statewide research collections and remove barriers to content for all Oregonians, significantly improving our ability to serve under- and unserved populations in Oregon.
Isaac Gilman and the project team behind the Journal for Librarianship and Scholarly Communication (JLSC)
Launched in May, this quarterly, open-access, peer-reviewed journal has already generated nationwide interest. In addition to providing an outlet for librarians and researchers interested in examining new paradigms for scholarly communication, the journal will serve as a testbed where new forms of peer review and new impact metrics can be modeled and investigated.
What a fantastic year for academic libraries in Oregon – and for all of us across the profession who will benefit from these amazing projects!
